[IAC#RG] IS JOURNALISM FACING CRISIS OF CREDIBILITY IN INDIA


To

India Against Corruption


                                            IS JOURNALISM FACING CRISIS OF CREDIBILITY  IN  INDIA

 

A  journalist  in Tamil Nadu in India who is the editor of a Tamil journal has written a few articles  damaging the reputation of Tamil Nadu Governor , associating him with a discredited  lady college professor who is now in jail.

When the Governor's office sent a complaint to the police about the article which discredited the Governor,  the police arrested the editor   and then he was released by the court. Obviously, Governor felt  unhappy , as the article contained false information

Now, the question is  whether the journalist has the right and freedom to write anything about anybody and damaging the reputation. While in the case of Tamil Nadu Governor, the journalist says that he has investigated , no one knows as to what is the investigation that was done , when and how it was conducted and where is the investigation report.

The journalist association have criticized the police and applauded the judge, who released the editor from the case.

If this would be the condition, nobody could be safe and journalists may harass the individuals  and even blackmail them. This is already happening.

In an office, if a boss would question the lady official on any matter and if the lady would be offended, she can make some false charges against the boss  and if she has the backing of the media, then the reputation and the life of the boss  would be  tarnished.

What is particularly shocking in the  above case  is that when the judge was hearing the case regarding the arrest of the journalist, the judge spotted  the  owner of  an  English newspaper who was in the crowd as an observer and asked him for his views. Have we ever heard of a judge seeking the views  of a member in the crowd of observers  while hearing a case?

In the last few days in India, TV media is having a "great time " as a few women are accusing some men for having abused them several years back and  the episode is titled  "  Me too ". There is no conclusive proof that men have misbehaved and the women have been abused and the men have denied the accusation.  Media is pre judging the issue and is conducting media trial, with no accountability for the media and the journalists. The reputation of the men involved are getting irreparably damaged.

The question is whether journalists have unlimited right and privilege to say or write  whatever they want  and are they  accountable to none. The journalism in India seem  to be going astray

It appears the distinction between politicians and journalists are disappearing fast in India , with the journalists in most  cases being suspected of having   direct or indirect  political leanings  or excessively carrying out the instructions of the boss  while preparing the scripts. We all know that several newspapers, journals and TV media in India are owned by politicians   and business men.

Today, journalism in India is facing a crisis of  credibility.

Dear friends and co-travellers,

 

As you might be aware, ASHA (Alliance for Sustainable & Holistic Agriculture) www.kisanswaraj.in holds a Kisan Swaraj Sammelan once every two years. This is a Convention that brings members of the large family of ASHA-Kisan Swaraj network together, along with other allies invited too, to update ourselves on various issues, spend time together to share and learn, and to rejuvenate ourselves as an informal alliance. 

 

After the Kisan Swaraj Yatra was completed in December 2010, we all met in Nagpur in 2011, to create some structures for our functioning in ASHA, to make collective plans and implement them. Subsequently, we had Kisan Swaraj Sammelans in Bhopal in 2013 and in Hyderabad in 2016 (in between, we did meet and spend time together when ASHA joined hands with OFAI for a convention in 2015). 

 

This mail is to announce that the Kisan Swaraj Sammelan 2018 will be organised by ASHA and Gujarat Vidyapith on November 2, 3 and 4 2018 (Friday, Saturday & Sunday), in AhmedabadIncidentally, this is from where ASHA began its journey on Gandhi Jayanti eight years ago.   

 

This is an advance alert, requesting you to block these dates on your calendar to join us. Please await a formal announcement of the Sammelan's registration process and kindly note that while we request you to go ahead and book your tickets for your journey (Diwali this year is a few days after these dates), final confirmation of participation will be based on registration processes that we will initiate and adopt soon. Thank you.

प्रिय दोस्तों और सह यात्रियों,

 

जैसा कि आप जानते होंगे, आशा (सतत और समग्र कृषि के लिए गठबंधन) हर दो साल में एक किसान स्वराज सम्मेलन रखती है। यह एक सम्मेलन है जो आशा-किसान स्वराज नेटवर्क के बड़े परिवार के सदस्यों को एक साथ आमंत्रित करता है, अन्य सहयोगियों के साथ भी, विभिन्न मुद्दों पर जानकारी रखने, साझा करने और सीखने के लिए समय बिताने के लिए, और अनौपचारिक गठबंधन के रूप में खुद को फिर से जीवंत करने के लिए आमंत्रित किया जाता है।
 

दिसंबर 2010 में किसान स्वराज यात्रा पूरी होने के बाद, हम सामूहिक योजना बनाने और उन्हें लागू करने के लिए आशा में हमारे कामकाज के लिए कुछ संरचनाएं बनाने के लिए 2011 में नागपुर में मिले थे। इसके बाद, 2013 में भोपाल में और 200 9 में हैदराबाद में किसान स्वराज सम्मेलन थे (बीच में, जब हम आशा 2015 में एक सम्मेलन के लिए ओएफएआई के साथ हाथ मिलाये थे)।

 

यह मेल यह घोषणा करना है कि किसान स्वराज सम्मेलन 2018 अहमदाबाद में 2 नवंबर, 3 और 4 2018 (शुक्रवार, शनिवार और रविवार) को आशा और गुजरात विद्यापिथ द्वारा आयोजित किया जाएगा। संयोग से, यह वह जगह है जहां आशा ने आठ साल पहले गांधी जयंती पर अपनी यात्रा शुरू की थी।

 

यह एक अग्रिम खबर है, जो आपसे जुड़ने के लिए अपने कैलेंडर पर अवरुद्ध करने का अनुरोध करता है। कृपया सम्मेलन की पंजीकरण प्रक्रिया की औपचारिक घोषणा का इंतजार करें और कृपया ध्यान दें कि जब हम आपको आगे बढ़ने और अपनी यात्रा के लिए टिकट बुक करने का अनुरोध करते हैं (इस वर्ष दीवाली इन तिथियों के कुछ दिन बाद है), भागीदारी की अंतिम पुष्टि पंजीकरण पर आधारित होगी प्रक्रियाएं जिन्हें हम जल्द ही शुरू करेंगे और अपनाएंगे। धन्यवाद।                 आशा स्टीयरिंग समूह

 

 आप में से उन लोगों के लिए जो आशा की नीतिगत अभिव्यक्ति के बारे में नहीं जानते हैं, वे नीचे सूचीबद्ध हैं (यहां लिंक में अधिक जानकारी भी) http://www.kisanswaraj.in/2011/12/13/kisan-swaraj-neeti/                                  

. सभी किसान परिवारों की आय सुरक्षा ताकि उत्पादक अपने पेशे को व्यवहारिक और सम्मानजनक पायें और परेशान होकर खेती छोड़ने को मजबूर हों ,                            

. उत्पादक प्राकृतिक संसाधनों को सुरक्षित रखने के लिए पर्यावरणीय टिकाऊ खेती पद्धति ताकि जीवनयापन सतत बना रहे ,              

. जमीन ,बीज ,जंगल ,पानी और खेत जैसे संसाधनों पर लोगों का नियंत्रण जो कि व्यावहारिक और टिकाऊ जीवनयापन का सूत्र है,                                                        

. सभी भारतीयों के लिए गैर रासायनिक या बिना जेहेर वाला विविधतापूर्ण , पोषक और पर्याप्त खाद्य

PS - To respond to the email, do not do a reply all, reply privately just to me at rohit.2691@gmail.com (feel free to also reply to the group you got a msg on) otherwise you will end up getting lot of emails with failure replies back from groups you are not on.     ईमेल का जवाब देने के लिए, सभी को उत्तर न दें, rohit.2691@gmail.com पर मेरे लिए निजी तौर पर जवाब दें (उस समूह को भी जवाब दें, जिस पर आपको यह संदेश मिला) अन्यथा आप बहुत सारे ईमेल प्राप्त कर लेंगे उन समूहों से जिन पर आप नहीं हैं।

RE: [IAC#RG] JUDGES SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY ABOVE BOARD

I am alarmed that a good number of friends whom I know to be of well-formed and mature minds now taking to an over-restraining attitude against our Judiciary whom I know to be very capable and of good judgement. I firmly request that this be stopped to not allow one of our best and capable professions to flounder, regards, Cdr. Hirak Nag.

Subject: [IAC#RG] JUDGES SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY ABOVE BOARD

 

To ensure people's total faith in the Independence of the Judiciary, Judges are expected to be moral exemplars of morality and ethics as they have pledged to uphold and defend that realm. There can be no dividing line between a Judge's personal life and the official one.

The private lives of Judges is wide open to public scrutiny. What they do in their private life matters and does impact their responsibility as Judges. Can they be ethical in public if they are dishonorable in private? Their private life reveals more about morals than anything else.

It is imperative that a Judge should never entertain a lawyer with whom he or she may be having an affair with. To put it very bluntly it should be a straight refusal in bed, if not an upright recusal in Court.

The French Nobel Prize winning Author and Philosopher Albert Camus had rightly said "A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world".

The 7th President of United States of America Andrew Jackson had also then so very rightly said "All the rights secured to the citizens under the Constitution are worth nothing, and a mere bubble, except guaranteed to them by an independent and virtuous Judiciary"

Justice should not only be done, but also seen to be done!

Re: [IAC#RG] Political Roadmap

Dear Amaresh

Your logic is fallacious and runs something like this

1) Mangal Pandey was a Brahmin
2) Brahmins led 1857
3) Your ancestor Bhagirath Misra was a Brahmin from Unnao
4) You claim to be a Brahmin
5) You have written some book on 1857, and so profess yourself to be an expert on the subject of revolution
6) You claim that Muslims of UP will bow to Sanatinist Dharma in the revolution and annoint a Brahmin (Rahul Gandhi ???) as leader of this revolution.

What you have left out is the following

A) Mangal Pandey was a sepoy in the Bengal forces of the East India Company, and (by his own statement at his court inquiry) high on bhang and ganja at the time.
B) The incident happened in Barrackpore (Kolkata, Bengal)  and not in UP and nowhere near Unnao.
C) The 1857 revolution was ignited, spread throughout Upper India, and was very well financed, by my highly patriotic Bengali (Brahmin) family, not yours, in the same way that the fictitious Nirbhaya "gangrape" was used to scuttle Congress and bring BJP and Kejriwal to power.
D) The Congreess Party, in which you are some sort of minor apparatchik, had nothing do do with 1857, so don't take credit for what is not yours.

When there is a revolution here, it will be bloody and modelled on the French, Chinese, and Soviet ones or else be enacted like all those in the Middle East which our foolish Sanatanist Hindus are cheering the US for engineering, not realising that we are next in line.

BTW: If you want to discuss/praise Brahminism (I don't want to and never do) you can start with your Party President Shri Rahul Gandhi's astonishing (and frankly idiotic) claims that he is a) a Hindu, and/or b) a Brahmin by caste. The present reality of Congress Party in Uttar Pradesh (see point 6 above) is that Congress under Mr. Gandhi is not even fit to shine Ms.Mayawati's designer shoes, and most Muslims (and Brahmins) in UP know it.

Sarbajit

Sarabjit, you are an idiot. Brahmins led 1857. Not only did Mangal Pandey fire the first bullet, 3 out of 5 Hindu members of the 10 member revolutionary council that ran the revolutionary Govt of Bahadur Shah Zafar were Brahmins. One major name was Bhagirath Misra of Unnao He was my ancestor. I am the author of 'War of Civilisations: India 1857', the only exhaustive (2 volume, 2000 pg) work on 1857 by an Indian. My book covers martyrs of all castes--Dalit, OBC, Jat, Gujar, Brahmins, Rajputs, Sikhs, Muslims--as well of all regions from Kashmir to Tamil Nadu. The leading ideology of 1857 was an alliance between Sanatan Dharma and Waliullahism--the ideology of Shah Waliullah. You can also say the alliance between Sanatan Dharma and Islam. Any modern revolution in India will follow 1857 and has to be based among the peasantry of UP. Naturally, all castes and creeds will participate. But Sanatan Dharma will remain the guiding ideology--as it is the guiding ideology of the UP peasantry.

Dear Amaresh

You are badly confused. It is the Sanatani Hindus who are totally for the status quo, and it makes no difference to a Sanatanist if BJP, Congress or AAP or even Swaraj Party. (in any combination) rule India.

Now, if your hero Shri Rahul Gandhi wants to play act at being a Hindu (any kind of Hindu, even a Sanatani one), then he will have to publicly explain to the real Hindu voters the basis for publicly claiming to be a Brahmin by caste, and who his Hindu parent(s) actually were since one Ms. Menaka Gandhi has stated in court that her husband Sanjay Gandhi was a Parsee, and Mr. Rahul Gandhi's new advisor Mr. Surjewala (an advocate I believe) can explain why the Congress Party refuses to abide by the law of the land and accept multiple RTIs from me on these burning questions which affect my personal electoral decisions as a (non-Sanatani) Brahmic Hindu in a so-called democracy.

Surely it would be trivial for Mr. Rahul Gandhi to put his Hindu parent's Hindu Marriage Act registration certificate into the public domain where we can all see it for ourselves.

Otherwise, I think we can close this issue very simply - the foreign imposed arch-traitor Mohandas Gandhi was a self-described Sanatanist (ie. Satanist) Hindu and all those who claim his legacy, like BJP, Congress, AAP etc are equally all corrupt status-quoist political parties from whom we citizens can expect nothing good for the nation eccept more of their foreign sponsored imperialist policies.

When, not if, the change does come, it will be violent, it will be revolutionary and it will spare none. India is heading for civil war if these divisive Sanatani Governments continue on. So, be prepared (and keep your powder dry and your guns handy). THAT is the political roadmap I foresee.

DUSU WIN AND MODI'S COUNTER-OFFENSIVE: A POLITICAL ROAD MAP 

                            PART I

In an act of blatant, electoral rigging--EVMs stopped functioning after 6 rounds when ABVP was trailing against NSUI--ABVP just won DUSU elections (3 posts out of 4).

It is a big, unexpected set back, contrary to the anti-BJP mood in the country and the massive defeat of ABVP in nearly all student union elections in late 2017 and 2018.

It is a signal: the beginning of Modi's counter-offensive against his recent decline and a foretaste of how things might pan out in 2019.

This needs to be seen as a dress rehearsal for 2019 General Elections. Congress might still win Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh--or at least two out of three.

URBAN NAXALS AND SANJIV BHATT 

Modi's counter offensive began with arrests of intellectuals as #UrbanNaxals. And the sudden, almost arbitrary arrest of Sanjiv Bhatt--a saga that saw the ex-IPS officer being picked up for an obscure, 1996 case; then the lower court refusing police remand asked by the Gujarat Police--BUT THE GUJARAT HIGH COURT GRANTING POLICE REMAND WITHOUT GIVING A CHANCE TO THE DEFENCE. 

BINARIES OF NARENDRA MODI

Modi wants to keep the discourse tight between his 'psuedo-nationalist', right wing politics and an imaginary threat: Dalit-Left-liberal politics of the 'anti-national', Bhima-Koregaon/Arundhati Roy variety, that extends upto a caricaturish, 'jhola-chaap' view of JNU culture and JNUism.

Modi wants binaries to remain entrenched between an autochonous, Third-World, pro-corporate, pro-Imperialist, military-industrial fascism and a liberalism not rooted in Indian traditions, drawing inspiration from the west, 'Harvard', 'UNO' or caricaturish JNU.

SANATANI RESISTANCE

MODI'S DISCOMFITURE LIES WITH ANY, ANTI-RSS, ANTI-BJP POLITICS THAT DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM SANATAN DHARMA!

This is the path that Rahul Gandhi and Congress has taken of late...

The brutal fact is that Rahul's temple visits, Mansarovar Yatra, the upper caste-OBC-Sanatani reaction to the SC/ST Act Amendment, and, at a smaller level, the Sanatani Mangal Pandey Statue Installation Movement in UP,  did more damage to Modi's brand of politics (that includes Yogi), than say, rising prices and corruption charges.

IT IS TO COUNTER THE RISING SANATANI OPPOSITION TO HIS POLITICS, THAT MODI HAS RESURRECTED THE ALMOST DEAD, ARUNDHATI ROY TYPE, PSEUDO-LIBERAL, PRO-WEST--CARICATURISH JNUist, POLITICAL CURRENT.

MODI'S TRAP 

The challenge before all secular-democratic forces is not to fall into Modi's trap. We should avoid all forms of political discourses, including liberal ones, that smell of 'westernism', 'urban naxalism' or caricaturish JNUism or wokism.

India has a rich enough tradition of Sanatani dissent, Sanatani centrism and 1857 revolutionary parathesis.

BATTLE OF IDEAS

The fight in India is still political--a battle of ideas. But  any lurch towards extremism, or non-Sanatani trends represented by Prashant Bhushan, Gautam Navlakha, Shashi Tharoor, or even Arvind Kejriwal or any abstract, psuedo-liberal, metropolitan, 'English-Medium', anarchist, 'idea of India' is doomed. Liberals can be accommodated. But they cannot offer leadership. 

Regional forces are more rooted. But their history is against them. Modi knows too much about their material and political weaknesses. Also, ideologies of regional forces also draw inspiration from anti-Sanatani sources. This is not going to work.

Congress has a long way to go before it takes back the leadership of Sanatani society. Gandhi, Nehru, Bose and Patel are relevant but need to be updated and re-defined. Muslims need to shed all forms of League or Majlis politics. Muslims need to embrace a contemporary version of the pro-Sanatani flavour of pre-Independence forces in their ranks--forces like Jamiat Ulema Hind that opposed the creation of Pakistan.

INDIAN PEASANTRY: THE CLASS SUBTEXT

There is a class sub-text to what is happening. Western liberalism, urban naxalism, anti-Sanatani ideologies--even Lohiaism, Ambedkarism, and Nehruvianism, Gandhism, Periyarism etc emerged from organic intellectuals and took root amongst peasants, workers and masses. But today, nearly all of them are part of a sedentary elite, culture.

When there is no revolutionary alternative, fascism grows in reaction to ideologies that were once rooted--but now, have become sedantary. The visible legatees of Nehru, Lohia, Ambedkar, Periyar, even EMS Namboodripad, have acquired an aloof air. They are no longer connected to the peasantry.

It is in this atmosphere of ideological crisis that fascism has struck roots--and a new kind of pro-peasant, Sanatani  ideology of 'justice for all' is emerging as a countervailing force. In the post-ideological era, attendant with the collapse of ideologies, it is Sanatani thinking and ideology, which the peasantry holds dear. 

If Congress fails, or even if it is slow, new forces on the Sanatani plank of opposition to Modi will emerge--politics in India has not tolerated a vacuum for long.

If Modi finishes of democracy--well, as I keep mentioning, we always have 1857!

This needs to be seen as a dress rehearsal for 2019 General Elections. Congress might still win Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh--or at least two out of three.

URBAN NAXALS AND SANJIV BHATT 

Modi's counter offensive began with arrests of intellectuals as #UrbanNaxals. And the sudden, almost arbitrary arrest of Sanjiv Bhatt--a saga that saw the ex-IPS officer being picked up for an obscure, 1996 case; then the lower court refusing police remand asked by the Gujarat Police--BUT THE GUJARAT HIGH COURT GRANTING POLICE REMAND WITHOUT GIVING A CHANCE TO THE DEFENCE. 

BINARIES OF NARENDRA MODI

Modi wants to keep the discourse tight between his 'psuedo-nationalist', right wing politics and an imaginary threat: Dalit-Left-liberal politics of the 'anti-national', Bhima-Koregaon/Arundhati Roy variety, that extends upto a caricaturish, 'jhola-chaap' view of JNU culture and JNUism.

Modi wants binaries to remain entrenched between an autochonous, Third-World, pro-corporate, pro-Imperialist, military-industrial fascism and a liberalism not rooted in Indian traditions, drawing inspiration from the west, 'Harvard', 'UNO' or caricaturish JNU.

SANATANI RESISTANCE

MODI'S DISCOMFITURE LIES WITH ANY, ANTI-RSS, ANTI-BJP POLITICS THAT DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM SANATAN DHARMA!

This is the path that Rahul Gandhi and Congress has taken of late...

The brutal fact is that Rahul's temple visits, Mansarovar Yatra, the upper caste-OBC-Sanatani reaction to the SC/ST Act Amendment, and, at a smaller level, the Sanatani Mangal Pandey Statue Installation Movement in UP,  did more damage to Modi's brand of politics (that includes Yogi), than say, rising prices and corruption charges.

IT IS TO COUNTER THE RISING SANATANI OPPOSITION TO HIS POLITICS, THAT MODI HAS RESURRECTED THE ALMOST DEAD, ARUNDHATI ROY TYPE, PSEUDO-LIBERAL, PRO-WEST--CARICATURISH JNUist, POLITICAL CURRENT.

MODI'S TRAP 

The challenge before all secular-democratic forces is not to fall into Modi's trap. We should avoid all forms of political discourses, including liberal ones, that smell of 'westernism', 'urban naxalism' or caricaturish JNUism or wokism.

India has a rich enough tradition of Sanatani dissent, Sanatani centrism and 1857 revolutionary parathesis.

BATTLE OF IDEAS

The fight in India is still political--a battle of ideas. But  any lurch towards extremism, or non-Sanatani trends represented by Prashant Bhushan, Gautam Navlakha, Shashi Tharoor, or even Arvind Kejriwal or any abstract, psuedo-liberal, metropolitan, 'English-Medium', anarchist, 'idea of India' is doomed. Liberals can be accommodated. But they cannot offer leadership. 

Regional forces are more rooted. But their history is against them. Modi knows too much about their material and political weaknesses. Also, ideologies of regional forces also draw inspiration from anti-Sanatani sources. This is not going to work.

Congress has a long way to go before it takes back the leadership of Sanatani society. Gandhi, Nehru, Bose and Patel are relevant but need to be updated and re-defined. Muslims need to shed all forms of League or Majlis politics. Muslims need to embrace a contemporary version of the pro-Sanatani flavour of pre-Independence forces in their ranks--forces like Jamiat Ulema Hind that opposed the creation of Pakistan.

INDIAN PEASANTRY: THE CLASS SUBTEXT

There is a class sub-text to what is happening. Western liberalism, urban naxalism, anti-Sanatani ideologies--even Lohiaism, Ambedkarism, and Nehruvianism, Gandhism, Periyarism etc emerged from organic intellectuals and took root amongst peasants, workers and masses. But today, nearly all of them are part of a sedentary elite, culture.

When there is no revolutionary alternative, fascism grows in reaction to ideologies that were once rooted--but now, have become sedantary. The visible legatees of Nehru, Lohia, Ambedkar, Periyar, even EMS Namboodripad, have acquired an aloof air. They are no longer connected to the peasantry.

It is in this atmosphere of ideological crisis that fascism has struck roots--and a new kind of pro-peasant, Sanatani  ideology of 'justice for all' is emerging as a countervailing force. In the post-ideological era, attendant with the collapse of ideologies, it is Sanatani thinking and ideology, which the peasantry holds dear. 

If Congress fails, or even if it is slow, new forces on the Sanatani plank of opposition to Modi will emerge--politics in India has not tolerated a vacuum for long.

If Modi finishes of democracy--well, as I keep mentioning, we always have 1857!

Re: [IAC#RG] Political Roadmap

Sarabjit, you are an idiot. Brahmins led 1857. Not only did Mangal Pandey fire the first bullet, 3 out of 5 Hindu members of the 10 member revolutionary council that ran the revolutionary Govt of Bahadur Shah Zafar were Brahmins. One major name was Bhagirath Misra of Unnao He was my ancestor. I am the author of 'War of Civilisations: India 1857', the only exhaustive (2 volume, 2000 pg) work on 1857 by an Indian. My book covers martyrs of all castes--Dalit, OBC, Jat, Gujar, Brahmins, Rajputs, Sikhs, Muslims--as well of all regions from Kashmir to Tamil Nadu. The leading ideology of 1857 was an alliance between Sanatan Dharma and Waliullahism--the ideology of Shah Waliullah. You can also say the alliance between Sanatan Dharma and Islam. Any modern revolution in India will follow 1857 and has to be based among the peasantry of UP. Naturally, all castes and creeds will participate. But Sanatan Dharma will remain the guiding ideology--as it is the guiding ideology of the UP peasantry.

Dear Amaresh

You are badly confused. It is the Sanatani Hindus who are totally for the status quo, and it makes no difference to a Sanatanist if BJP, Congress or AAP or even Swaraj Party. (in any combination) rule India.

Now, if your hero Shri Rahul Gandhi wants to play act at being a Hindu (any kind of Hindu, even a Sanatani one), then he will have to publicly explain to the real Hindu voters the basis for publicly claiming to be a Brahmin by caste, and who his Hindu parent(s) actually were since one Ms. Menaka Gandhi has stated in court that her husband Sanjay Gandhi was a Parsee, and Mr. Rahul Gandhi's new advisor Mr. Surjewala (an advocate I believe) can explain why the Congress Party refuses to abide by the law of the land and accept multiple RTIs from me on these burning questions which affect my personal electoral decisions as a (non-Sanatani) Brahmic Hindu in a so-called democracy.

Surely it would be trivial for Mr. Rahul Gandhi to put his Hindu parent's Hindu Marriage Act registration certificate into the public domain where we can all see it for ourselves.

Otherwise, I think we can close this issue very simply - the foreign imposed arch-traitor Mohandas Gandhi was a self-described Sanatanist (ie. Satanist) Hindu and all those who claim his legacy, like BJP, Congress, AAP etc are equally all corrupt status-quoist political parties from whom we citizens can expect nothing good for the nation eccept more of their foreign sponsored imperialist policies.

When, not if, the change does come, it will be violent, it will be revolutionary and it will spare none. India is heading for civil war if these divisive Sanatani Governments continue on. So, be prepared (and keep your powder dry and your guns handy). THAT is the political roadmap I foresee.

BTW : Congress had nothing to do with 1857. It was financed and devised by our movements.

DUSU WIN AND MODI'S COUNTER-OFFENSIVE: A POLITICAL ROAD MAP 

                            PART I

In an act of blatant, electoral rigging--EVMs stopped functioning after 6 rounds when ABVP was trailing against NSUI--ABVP just won DUSU elections (3 posts out of 4).

It is a big, unexpected set back, contrary to the anti-BJP mood in the country and the massive defeat of ABVP in nearly all student union elections in late 2017 and 2018.
