Re: [IAC#RG] Heads Must Roll: Use of Army for Sri Sri’s Event

Dear Zubin,
                   Once our Army was used for AICC sammelan. Sad indeed we have weak commanders who doesn't go by the book.We have many times given water tanks for events like these. Attukal pongala normally gets this service from Army. Regards Uncle.

I am terribly saddened and immensely angered to read that the Indian

bridges for a culture festival, which is clearly not a state event!

It gets worse when one factors in that these bridges are operational
assets that are meant to be deployed by specialist combat troops in
war.

I'm desperately hoping this news report is false. If it is not, the
General Officer in command who authorised this (quite possibly under
duress) must be held personally liable for bringing disrepute to the
Indian Army.

The reluctance, or worse, the inability to stand up and say NO to what
is clearly an inappropriate request (or order) must be equated with
cowardice as per Army law, and appropriately dealt with. This nation
looks up to our men and women in uniform. We CANNOT let down trust by
bringing disrepute to the very hard earned respect that our countrymen
and women hold for that uniform.

Our men and women in uniform are known for their straight spine. Let
us keep it that way, please.

Once again, if indeed this news report is true, Heads MUST roll !!!

Re: [IAC#RG] Sorry state of media in India

The debate has been interesting and indeed encouraging.

The intention to float this mail was to escalate the matter to a point where the Government is mobilised to set up check points to ensure objective reporting. 

It is easier said than done. The Government is happy with the confusion as the media catches the tail and jumps while the Government runs away with the elephant.

Few of the ways could be -

a) the group writes to the necessary authorities to put responsible persons in the governing authorities

b) any well known activist here could open a blog to escalate the matter

c) National Convenor takes up this issue, on behalf of IAC, as a cause

Malhotra sahab,

Without sitting on roads, govts do not listen. Its an established fact. There have been 20 years of peaceful efforts- have you noticed that ? Once 2 lakh people gathered at Ram Lila Maidan, you would not even be knowing it ! Because, just like the Govt, the urban community is tuned to not be bothered about peaceful efforts.
If they sit on roadside, they would have been ignored similarly as thousands of homeless you see on streets. 

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." 
― 
John F. Kennedy

India is yet to go through a class war, as other western countries have gone through. Thats why development in those countries is equitable. The Jat, patels, or the Naxals, or the Maoist agitation merely reflects that the class war is starting.
India merely got political independence in 1947,  the power was transferred from outside exploiters to inside exploiters. Most of us in urban society are the inside exploiters. Even the urban jats, patels, or the STs are part of the inside  exploiters, as these are siding with status quo that is highly exploitative. 



Jats are not enjoying- 30 have died, thousands in prison- but does it matter why they are suffering so much. Most people are just enjoying the plight of jats. And more are going to die, because the establishment led by RSS is a capitalist class that can only survive if  it divides the working rural class. it is  its startegy.

 Statement that agitation was peaceful for 4 days is not correct. Violence had started first day itself. Who blocked roads by trucks and tractors etc? The Police? When majority of people on the streets were those who were agitating, why did they not make effort to stop the violence and damage to property? During independence movement, when agitation resulted in violence Mahatma Gandhi decided to suspend the agitation. Leaders of the agitating community should have done the same if they were not involved.

Dear Dua sahab,

You have doubted who the looters were. Thats correct. The looted goods are found from houses of police officials- one is PSO of Munish Grover, MLA of Rohtak. Goods are found in house of another inspector as it has come in press..  So, you can imagine, if police is involved in looting, what the agitators can do.

Lets see how it started. While agitation was going peacefully for 4 days, on 5th night police, led by SP rank officer,  enters a hostel in Rohtak and selectively beats up jat students. The police enters four times over a night and do this.  The parents came- same treatment- I do not know how would people react when state itself do violence on innocents- but what happened after that is very much feasible.
I have videos where the quota agitators have caught criminals that were looting trucks. 

Media is putting a lot of onus on jats inspite of most evidence of violence, arson, looting coming from those who had no stake in the agitation. Khattar may not be leading this state sponsored violence but he was keeping his eyes shut. Rashme Sehgal, a senior reporter,  has done a unbiased coverage. See the link below: 

How the story unfolded 25 years back should be of interest to all. In 1991, yadavs were dominating the politics with Mulayam Singh and Lalu joining hands with VP Singh. The National Commission for backward classes (NCBC) with a strategy to oust jats from the OBC list, selectively  visited  Patiala and Bharatpur and stated that this community belongs to ruling class.  The lay jat working in fields of Haryana, West UP, Delhi were ignored. Yadavs managed to keep 27% quota to themselves. Since then its Yadavs who have enjoying this entire 27% of OBC quota, with some more classes who can barely compete with Yadavs. The recent SC petiton to strike down the quota to jats was by a Yadav.  It was not a stay  to say that jats do not deserve to be in OBC, but on basis of a procedural flaw by previous Congress Govt.

Since these 25 years Jats have been struggling peacefully to get the quota for them. Once 2 lakh people assembled at Ram Lila Maidan- but all efforts ignored. 
Jats are a working class community and not really smart in duniyadari. Just see how many you may find in offices at post beyond chaprasis Yet,the clamor for quota was not so much. The main reason behind this agitation has less to do with quota, but with BJP's game plan to play one caste against other. BJP preferred to fight state election on basis of jats vs non-jats. Thats a progress, a step ahead  from Hindu- Muslim divisive politics the BJP is accustomed to. Then, Mr Modi let loose a Mr. Raj Kumar Saini, MP to give inflammatory speeches against jats for through out the year. It barely ever happened in India that caste based speeches are given like this. But, BJP has started this too, and have created new divisons in society.

Jats are also wondering why the BJP govt wants to reserve entire  OBC quota  for Yadavs. After all, this community is  voting enbloc SP in UP, and RJD in Bihar. Well, its for BJP to play the game. Jats are now shifting to ally with Muslims and Dalits, its almost declared. Though jats were never supporters of RSS, they would now hound out the RSS from villages.

In nutshell, its BJP all the way doing the damage. I had never believed earlier about BJP's dirty politics, but can sense it entirely now. And, it is Mr Modi who leads the pack. Its part of his strategies to play castes one against the other that he adopted in Gujrat, Maharastra, and now Haryana.

This is happening again and again as a scripted soap serial and need to be stopped.

People are driven hard by a herd mentality charged up by false videos announcing `Pakistan Zindabad`.

For `stand alone` there is no choice either to remain silent supporters for self survival or stand with them in the mob of goondas or prmote the kill in the social media as no one wants to be with Pakistan even in dreams.

We need to collectively protect this old culture of peace and trust with new outlook otherwise the politicians shall re-use this serial to divert public attention and grab more profit for their masters.

Once 2 lakh people gathered at Ram Lila Maidan, you would not even be knowing it ! Because, just like the Govt, the urban community is tuned to not be bothered about peaceful efforts.
If they sit on roadside, they would have been ignored similarly as thousands of homeless you see on streets. 

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." 
― 
John F. Kennedy

India is yet to go through a class war, as other western countries have gone through. Thats why development in those countries is equitable. The Jat, patels, or the Naxals, or the Maoist agitation merely reflects that the class war is starting.
India merely got political independence in 1947,  the power was transferred from outside exploiters to inside exploiters. Most of us in urban society are the inside exploiters. Even the urban jats, patels, or the STs are part of the inside  exploiters, as these are siding with status quo that is highly exploitative. 



Jats are not enjoying- 30 have died, thousands in prison- but does it matter why they are suffering so much. Most people are just enjoying the plight of jats. And more are going to die, because the establishment led by RSS is a capitalist class that can only survive if  it divides the working rural class. it is  its startegy.

 Statement that agitation was peaceful for 4 days is not correct. Violence had started first day itself. Who blocked roads by trucks and tractors etc? The Police? When majority of people on the streets were those who were agitating, why did they not make effort to stop the violence and damage to property? During independence movement, when agitation resulted in violence Mahatma Gandhi decided to suspend the agitation. Leaders of the agitating community should have done the same if they were not involved.

Dear Dua sahab,

You have doubted who the looters were. Thats correct. The looted goods are found from houses of police officials- one is PSO of Munish Grover, MLA of Rohtak. Goods are found in house of another inspector as it has come in press..  So, you can imagine, if police is involved in looting, what the agitators can do.

Lets see how it started. While agitation was going peacefully for 4 days, on 5th night police, led by SP rank officer,  enters a hostel in Rohtak and selectively beats up jat students. The police enters four times over a night and do this.  The parents came- same treatment- I do not know how would people react when state itself do violence on innocents- but what happened after that is very much feasible.
I have videos where the quota agitators have caught criminals that were looting trucks. 

Media is putting a lot of onus on jats inspite of most evidence of violence, arson, looting coming from those who had no stake in the agitation. Khattar may not be leading this state sponsored violence but he was keeping his eyes shut. Rashme Sehgal, a senior reporter,  has done a unbiased coverage. See the link below: 

How the story unfolded 25 years back should be of interest to all. In 1991, yadavs were dominating the politics with Mulayam Singh and Lalu joining hands with VP Singh. The National Commission for backward classes (NCBC) with a strategy to oust jats from the OBC list, selectively  visited  Patiala and Bharatpur and stated that this community belongs to ruling class.  The lay jat working in fields of Haryana, West UP, Delhi were ignored. Yadavs managed to keep 27% quota to themselves. Since then its Yadavs who have enjoying this entire 27% of OBC quota, with some more classes who can barely compete with Yadavs. The recent SC petiton to strike down the quota to jats was by a Yadav.  It was not a stay  to say that jats do not deserve to be in OBC, but on basis of a procedural flaw by previous Congress Govt.

Since these 25 years Jats have been struggling peacefully to get the quota for them. Once 2 lakh people assembled at Ram Lila Maidan- but all efforts ignored. 
Jats are a working class community and not really smart in duniyadari. Just see how many you may find in offices at post beyond chaprasis Yet,the clamor for quota was not so much. The main reason behind this agitation has less to do with quota, but with BJP's game plan to play one caste against other. BJP preferred to fight state election on basis of jats vs non-jats. Thats a progress, a step ahead  from Hindu- Muslim divisive politics the BJP is accustomed to. Then, Mr Modi let loose a Mr. Raj Kumar Saini, MP to give inflammatory speeches against jats for through out the year. It barely ever happened in India that caste based speeches are given like this. But, BJP has started this too, and have created new divisons in society.

Jats are also wondering why the BJP govt wants to reserve entire  OBC quota  for Yadavs. After all, this community is  voting enbloc SP in UP, and RJD in Bihar. Well, its for BJP to play the game. Jats are now shifting to ally with Muslims and Dalits, its almost declared. Though jats were never supporters of RSS, they would now hound out the RSS from villages.

In nutshell, its BJP all the way doing the damage. I had never believed earlier about BJP's dirty politics, but can sense it entirely now. And, it is Mr Modi who leads the pack. Its part of his strategies to play castes one against the other that he adopted in Gujrat, Maharastra, and now Haryana.

The Press was pti or dd/ driven during that time.
Lack of awareness and living in our family groups made us feel good, no doubt.
Okay so we believe Shri Diwan ji as we hold him in high respect.
The question now in all our minds is why did the so called quota' agitationists', for want of a better word..Why they did not STOP the looters.
That is if looters were not the same as the agitationists.
Now for jnu.Anybody who has studied in jnu knows it is a Red driven univ.
Nothing wrong with that but having listened LIVE to one Kanahiya ji yesterday i have my doubts to the level of studies conducted in jnu.

Dear All,

Irreversible damage in absence of forensics report of videos as feared by Diwan Singh ji is the bottom line.

After Patel Reservation demand this Jat Reservation death toll is of 30 lives with more then 30,000 crore of property is turned into ash. Goondas belonging to no community enjoy the free loot.

When we follow the herd unwillingly we take a weak position of comfort with silence.

This is happening again and again as a scripted soap serial and need to be stopped.

People are driven hard by a herd mentality charged up by false videos announcing `Pakistan Zindabad`.

For `stand alone` there is no choice either to remain silent supporters for self survival or stand with them in the mob of goondas or prmote the kill in the social media as no one wants to be with Pakistan even in dreams.

We need to collectively protect this old culture of peace and trust with new outlook otherwise the politicians shall re-use this serial to divert public attention and grab more profit for their masters.

Regards,

Rakesh Manchanda.

Tribune planted a false story on gangrape, and for 5 days media ran back to back coverage on gangrape by jats during agitation. 
Just wonder- no victim, no evidence, no FIR- but media is going gangbang after a single community.
Though there is no principle of collective punishment in our constitution- the people of this community were continually shamed for what they never did. 

Just like the government divide the society by playing one community against another, media too do it skillfully by mass character assassination.
