BOYCOTT INDIA AS A TRAVEL DESTINATION FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

BOYCOTT INDIA AS A TRAVEL DESTINATION FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

In the year 2012 tourism alone supported about 6.7 percent to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of India.

Women tourist to India has dropped by 35% according to the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India.

Violence against Women, Sexual Assaults & Rapes in India are on the rise and will continue

1.  Danish Tourist Case: Eight monsters in New Delhi, the rape capital of India raped a 51 year old Danish tourist at knife point after she approached them for directions back to her hotel located in Paharganj, a busy backpacker district frequented by foreign tourists. The men led her to a dead-end road, where about eight men jumped out from bushes and cornered her, according to a police report cited by Indian news media. The victim’s ordeal lasted for about 3 hours near Connaught Place, a popular area frequented by shoppers. All six of the monsters are young homeless men.

 2.   German Tourist Case:   A few days ago an 18-year-old German charity worker was assaulted on a train in Southern India. The culprit was a fellow passenger.

 3.   Swiss Tourist Case:  In March 2013 a couple from Switzerland who were camping in a forest, in the Madhya Pradesh state were attacked by a group of men. They were brutally beaten up, the woman was gang raped repeatedly for long hours in the presence of her husband. Six men were jailed for life for the attack.

4.   American Tourist Case:  In June 2013 a 30 year old American woman was gang raped in the northern resort town of Manali as she made her way to her guest house (Inn).

5.  In 2013 a photojournalist was raped in broad daylight in Mumbai. Another, 21 year old woman was raped by 2 groups of men on Christmas Eve in Pondicherry. A 16 year old girl who was gang raped twice and set ablaze in Calcutta, later died.

According to the Government of India (GoI) there were 1,330 rapes reported in New Delhi and the surrounding suburbs between January – October 2013.

The new stringent laws that doubled prison terms for rape to 20 years and criminalized voyeurism and stalking do not serve as a deterrent to Indian men, simply because they do not respect women. The two largest cultures in India do not advocate for women to be respected.

Millions of women in India are harassed, violated and killed for dowry. Many more have to put up with daily indignities, the abuse continues unabated and the streets of India are not safe. Police corruption is rampant, people with clout, influence and the right connections get away with rape, murder, extortion, blackmail and much more.

The judicial process in India is a joke in itself. The Indian Judiciary is corrupt to its core, and the legal process takes decades. In the meantime, the witnesses either forget the facts as perceived at the time of the incident (crime), many witnesses are routinely bribed and suffer from sudden amnesia, or turn hostile towards the victim or prosecution, many are simply bought out by the culprits and their politically connected rich family members. The Police do not protect the witnesses, and the circus continues. The Judges of all levels and ranks can be bought as well, if you have the money or political connections all is well for the criminals and their accomplices.

The victim is further brutalized by the Judicial Officers, Police and the Law itself.

Cases involving foreigners continue to get more attention in the media and from the police, Indian women who are raped are still unlikely to receive justice. The double standards are a part and parcel of life in India. This is Justice in India. 

The 6 pillars upon which India stands today are illiteracy, hypocrisy, anarchy, blindness, monstrosity and irrationality. If a country’s GDP was to be measured by any of these 6 national products, India would rightfully be the richest country in the world, but for now I will leave it for history to prove me wrong.

India – Land of Gurus, Swamis & Swines, all equally guilty of promoting violence & illiteracy. (Part 3) Democracy Betrayed – The Rise of Bal Thackeray, Shiv Sena & the transformation of India from a Democratic to a Theocratic State

The Venomous Invertebrates Who Live Among Us

A Betrayal of the World’s Largest Democracy

Bal Thackeray the bloodsucking snake who spread his venom through Indian Society is dead, or at least that’s what they say. But for me he is very much alive, not physically of course, but through his dark ideology of snatching away people’s dignity through acts of violence, intimidation and unlawful behavior.

India and fellow citizens of Mumbai will NEED to UNITE and fight back to rightly claim that which belongs to them. Namely, their dignity, peace of mind, and last but not the least their Constitutional Rights guaranteed by the Constitution of India.

Bal Thackeray was nothing but POISON. He was NOT an intellectual person at all. He was and remains nothing but a violent thug and MASS MURDERER just like his idol Adolf Hitler, the Nazi leader of Germany.

His right wing political party the Shiv Sena is nothing more than a group of intolerant, intellectually challenged bigots, thugs and arsonist who think they are above the law of the land. They were only successful in consolidating their power by gaining support and following of like minded people, namely the Marathi speaking people of Maharashtra and neighboring states.

The entire state of Maharashtra and Mumbai its capital and commercial nerve center of the country has been hijacked by the Shiv Sena and their heinous crimes in the name of Hindu religion. The Shiv Sena has divided and ruled and conquered through the impetus of fear and violence.

Decades ago they vented their anger against the Tamils and South Indian migrant workers who came to Mumbai for education, commerce and employment.

Many South Indians did get jobs and stayed ahead of the native Marathi Manoos because they were qualified, hard working and intelligent. On the other hand the Marathi speakers were not educated enough and those who were educated had a very poor command or understanding of the English language which was and still is the universal language in the banking, business, legal and commercial fields / sectors in Mumbai.

Violence was the only language these animals spoke or understood. Later, the Shiv Sena found a new enemy the Gujarati, Jains and Marwaris of Mumbai (f/k/a Bombay), they too faced the same treatment. Shiv Sena extorted millions of rupees every year from industrialist, businessmen and the film industry.

While the politicians, police departments, and many more received a piece of the action. The Marathi speaking citizens of Maharashtra state had accomplished their mission of taking over Mumbai, the golden goose of the country by committing every unlawful act known to humankind. The judiciary was nothing but a puppet and corrupt to the core.

Honest citizens who complained or addressed their grievances to the police found themselves implicated in false police cases, evidence was fabricated and witnesses harassed, many were forced to make false confessions or recant their confessions.

Acts of intimidation, harassment of women and children were routinely carried out by Shiv Sainiks and the police force.

These heinous acts are still carried out in the name of “Aamchi Mumbai“, “Hindu Raj“, “Hindutva” and the “Saffron flag” to this day.

In Maharashtra the Marathi speakers are a majority and their violent acts are encouraged and supported by the Police, Intelligence Bureau (IB) and other state and central intelligence agencies. This has been the case for the past 50 years in Mumbai (Bombay).

The Maharashtra State police force, Mumbai City Police, Intelligence Bureau (IB) and every politician in the past 50 years has been sleeping in the bed made by the Shiv Sena, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the Hindu MahasabhaBajrang Dal, an affiliate of the RSS and other militant Hindu groups and organizations.

We all remember Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, a Madhya Pradesh-based Hindu nun with deep links to the Hindutva movement,  Sudhakar Dwivedi, and a serving Indian Army Lieutenant Colonel, Shrikant Prasad Purohit, all linked to Abhinav Bharat.

Abhinav Bharat was disguised as an educational trust with Himani Savarkar as its President.

Abhinav Bharat’s long term goal was to overthrow the Indian state and replace it with a totalitarian, theocratic order.

A ‘draft constitution’ spoke of a single-party system, presided over by a leader who “shall be followed at all levels without questioning the authority.”  It called for the creation of an “academy of indoctrinization [sic]”.

The concluding comment was stark: “People whose ideas are detrimental to Hindu Rashtra should be killed.”

Lieutenant Colonel, Shrikant Prasad Purohit received lessons in Hindutva politics at a class for Short Service Commission officer-aspirants at the Bhonsala Military School in Nashik.

The Bhonsala Military School was founded in 1937 by B.S. Moonje, the controversial school drew on fascist pedagogical practices the Hindutva ideologue encountered on a visit to Europe.  Abhinav Bharat held regular meetings on the premises of the Bhonsala Military School.

It may surprise many Indians but from the outset Abhinav Bharat’s  goal to overthrow the Indian Democratic state and establishing a totalitarian theocracy was an open secret at Bhonsala Military School and in some other quarters.

The movement was named Abhinav Bharat after a terrorist group set up by Hindutva militants to fight the British colonials.

Himani Savarkar was the the President of Abhinav Bharat, she is the grandniece of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, the father of the Hindutva movement and the daughter of Gopal Godse, the brother of  Mahatma Gandhi‘s assassin – Nathuram Godse.

One could say the “apple does not fall far from the tree”. Would you agree?

THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA

PREAMBLE

WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;

LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;

EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all

FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty-sixth day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.

A humble appeal to my fellow Indians

More violence in the name of God, community and religion took place in Mumbai.

Why can’t we all just get along?

How many more people need to be killed?
How many more mother’s have to loose their children?

How many more children have to loose their parents?

How many more spouses have to loose their partners?
Before we all can UNITE under the tricolor flag of India.If India can find ways and means to launch satellites, travel in space, build one of the most advanced missiles in the world & aspire to send a man to the moon in the next decade, such HIMALAYAN dreams can only be achieved by India by solving the most difficult problems in pure mathematics, engineering, astrophysics, chemistry, aeronautics and other scientific and social disciplines.

This truly shows that we are a nation of hard working intellectuals, who are open minded and ever ready for adventure and learning new things in life.

However, we are absolutely blinded by the subject of religion. India’s BIGGEST challenge of curbing communal disharmony, heinous acts of violence in the name of God is its inability to recognize that the true message of religion is HUMANITY.

We humans should start believing in HUMANITY more than what the good book teaches, because the very essence of loving GOD is to love & serve HUMANITY.

End the violence now and forever, speak up & hold our government officials and community leaders accountable for their lack of  integrity and understanding.

Let us all join hands and promise ourselves to respect each others views and religious beliefs even when they are in different than our very own, promise to respect each other’s Constitutional rights & to uphold the law.

Please, let us all get together and help India grow and transform into a more tolerant, civil & peaceful nation looked upon, well respected and admired by other countries of the world.Thank you
