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?

Bal Thackeray is Dead

Good riddance to bad rubbish

Bal Thackeray, founder of Shiv Sena, a Hindu fundamentalist organization, mass murderer, anti social element & worshiper of Adolf Hitler finally breathed his last on Saturday, November 17, 2012.

Bal Thackeray commanded “respect” just as Adolf Hitler. Both mentally challenged, mass murdering illiterates were “respected” because they were feared and not because they yielded intellectual capacity.

Bal Thackeray and his like are a blot on Indian history, culture, society, the Indian Constitution and the rule of law.

I never liked him or admired him. For he was a violent human being and had no qualms misrepresenting facts to his fellow Shiv Sainiks and people at large.

The State of Maharashtra will never be able to wipe the tears off the faces of people who lost their lives throughout India because of Bal Thackeray and other fundamentalist Hindu political groups who have committed horrible acts against fellow Hindus, Dalits – the lower caste Hindus, journalist, critics, media persons, migrant workers from Southern India & the Muslim minority.

Shiv Sena and its extreme ideology is against the rule of law and UNDEMOCRATIC in every respect.

People like Bal Thackeray and his supporters are neither forgotten by their victims nor forgiven by God, Nature and Humanity.

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.

Help transform India – Fight for your Constitutional rights

Wake Up India

Fight for your Constitutional rights, because your Government wants you to be illiterate & subservient

While the majority of India‘s population lives in abject poverty & faces severe malnutrition, shortage of food, water, clothing, low income housingrunning water, electricity, healthcare & education, which forces millions of poverty stricken parents to take desperate measures such as having their 5 & 6 year old children to work as bonded laborers (slaves) in the most appalling conditions and without adequate food, education, shelter or sanitary conditions.

Instead of declaring WAR on the very problems that keep India in absolute mindbogglingly poverty.

The Government of India (GOI) has decided to declare WAR on its citizens by undermining their intelligence and attacking their Constitutional rights.

The Government of India and the selected (not elected) criminals in the Indian parliament in New Delhi cannot stomach the fact that dissent, and a more outspoken citizenry demanding their legal rights, enforcement of laws, equality, due process, accountability and civility from its government (Saarkar) are gathering momentum.

It is only a matter of time before UNITED CITIZENS OF INDIA (Hindus, Muslims, SikhsJains, Christians, Jews and many more) are more likely to bring law and order, civility, accountability and respect to the nation and to its democratic institutions.

A civil revolt of Himalayan proportions is inevitable if Indians get more legal rights, knowledge from the Internet, education and awareness of their region and the world in which they live in. This is the BIGGEST threat to the criminal politicians who want to keep the masses under their thumb.

Curbing free speech, expression and general knowledge only helps the criminal politicians to solidify their positions of power.

WE will not let this happen.

A Dialogue with Mitt Romney & Supporters

Hello Friends & Critics

No, I am certainly NOT entitled to Romney’s money. I am ONLY entitled to what I earn.

However, Romney and the ELITE class, those SUPER RICH who firmly believe that they should NOT be subjected to higher taxes are plainly wrong. There are millions of Americans who religiously pay their taxes to the government.

Unfortunately, historically the ELITE have and continue to pay taxes that are much lower than the average American in comparison to their annual incomes & accumulated wealth.

The average American also does NOT evade taxes by siphoning off millions into off shore accounts in Switzerland, Cayman Islands, Bahamas and other countries that are tax havens for the SUPER RICH, narco-trafficers, arms dealers, diamond and bullion merchants & many other unscrupulous people from around the world who do not want to pay taxes to their respective National governments.

The tax evaders conduct constitutes nothing more than a crime against his / her own country. Whether that country is named United States of America, Colombia, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Norway, India, Singapore, Malaysia or Australia.

Paying taxes is a legal, moral and a patriotic obligation of every person in America. Whether they are citizens, green card holders, seasonal workers or tourist.

Yes, even tourist pay taxes but not on their incomes but on the products and services they buy while they are on American soil. Examples, hotel taxes, food taxes at restaurants and supermarkets, gasoline taxes at gas stations, entertainment taxes at the cinema and recreation & theme parks such as Disney World in Florida or Disney Land in California.

Americans who indulge in causing self inflicting wounds to themselves by coming to the defense of unscrupulous Americans who wear a garb of respectability, thanks to their wealth need to learn how society, government and citizens are inter-related in forming a NATION such as beautiful America.

I hope this clears up any ambiguities or misunderstandings that may have risen in the reader’s mind.

Thank you.

Author’s Introduction

Who am I?

What do I stand for?  What are my beliefs?

Why do I care so much?

I am a social activist at heart, hence I started this blog. My sole purpose is to educated the masses in order to bring positive changes to the three branches of the Indian government – the Executive, Legislative & Judicial.

I believe in keeping an open mind, so that I may learn to appreciate various points of view. I do not believe in “my way or the highway” because it is counter-productive.

A free society is only possible if we learn to respect the views, opinions & thoughts of our fellow countrymen/women, without using disparaging remarks, threats of bodily harm and the acts of outright violence and intimidation. Violence, threats, torture, killing, murder, rape, pouring acid (“acid attacks“) etc. are some of the popular tools used by the criminals-turned-politicians & by many others in India to suppress dissent or counter-points/views  in India. This has been the case for times immemorial and we as a nation are told to put up with it.

Why should we tolerate those who do not respect the law of the land? Is the law only for the elite and powerful people in India? Why should the ordinary Indian citizen who earns a honest living and struggles to make ends meet be subjected to such state sponsored brutality? Yes, I used the term “state sponsored brutality” because it is the Republic itself through it’s elected officials carries out such attacks? The Indian government is notoriously famous for meting out “collective punishment”.

Are we not a Constitutional democracy which affords all citizens the Equal Protection of the law and the Right to be heard?

We as a rich ancient civilization, have forgotten many golden rules of civility.

I sincerely wish to bring a positive change to the Indian society in general. This can be be achieved through dialogue, sharing of ideas, opinions, suggestions & thoughts and a burning desire to see India free from the shackles of illiteracy, poverty & political oppression.

I am a firm believer in Free Constitutional Democracies, which affords it’s citizens the fundamental freedom that every human being on our planet must have. A person must be free to chose what he/she thinks, reads, or writes. Freedom of movement & assembly, freedom to follow his religion or beliefs, freedom to criticize the government openly and freely, without worrying about government retribution or punishment.

WE must stand united if we want to secure India’s future. Would you please join me?

Thank you
