Terming the Centre and Maharashtra government of
being “casteist” in nature, BSP chief Mayawati today accused the latter
of trying to save the two main accused in the violence that took place
at Bhima-Koregaon near Pune in which one person was killed.

Even as BSP supremo Mayawati advocated the use
of ballot paper in future elections instead of EVMs, data released by
the State Election Commission based on the recently concluded Uttar
Pradesh civic polls showed that the BSP fared poorly where paper ballots

by following the footsteps of our ancestors and guidance of Manyawar
Kanshi Ram Saheb, are able to form our own government for four times in
Uttar Pradesh in the past. As the result, we are able to improve the
socio-economic condition of our people in Uttar Pradesh. We are able to
secure the constitutional rights of our people. We are also able to
build memorials, statues and parks in the honor of our ancestors. But we
could not succeed to form our government in other states. As the
result, atrocities against our people are continuing unabatedly.

Supreme Court judges row: Latest developments
TIMESOFINDIA.COM | Updated: Jan 14, 2018, 15:28 IST
Two days after four senior judges of the Supreme Court of India mounted
a virtual revolt against the country’s chief justice, raising questions
on “selective” case allocation and certain judicial orders, the Bar
Council of India (BCI) has decided to broker peace between the two
factions. The Council will today meet the judges of the Supreme Court to
address the unprecedented crisis. Here are the latest developments in

*Yesterday, Justice Kurian Joseph had expressed
confidence that the issue raised by the judges would be resolved and had
said that there is no need for an outside intervention.
*On Saturday, the BCI had formed a seven-member delegation to meet and discuss the crisis with the apex court judges.
*Expressing strong disapproval of the press conference called by the
four SC judges, the Council had said that their action has “shaken up
the system” and the matter should be resolved “peacefully and quickly”.
*BCI had also passed a resolution, saying no political party or leaders
should take “undue advantage” of the situation arising out of the press
conference by the top court judges.
*On Saturday, Justice Ranjan
Gogoi told PTI in Kolkata, “There is no crisis.” He made the remark on
the sidelines of a programme, when asked about the way forward to
resolve the crisis.
*On Saturday, Supreme Court Bar Association
(SCBA), which also met today to discuss Friday’s news conference by the
judges, had said they’d unanimously passed two resolutions which they
will send to the CJI.
“First, all the differences between the
judges and the CJI, be it regarding the roster or MOP, should be
considered by the full court and resolved at the earliest, preferably on
Monday. Second, in order to restore the credibility of the institution,
a system should be introduced wherein all PILs filed in the top court
do not go beyond the first five judges of the SC collegium,” said Vikas
Singh, president of the Supreme Court Bar Association.
Saturday, attorney general K K Venugopal, who had a meeting with Justice
Misra after the joint news conference of the judges, had said it “could
have been avoided” and expressed hope that the crisis would be

four judges of the Supreme Court expressed concerns about the
functioning of the Supreme Court. #DemocracyInDanger,” the Congress’ official Twitter handle said.
*On Friday, Minister of state for law PP Chaudhury said, “Our judiciary

*On Friday, BJP had accused Congress of politicising the “internal affairs” of the Supreme Court.
“Today we had a press conference which was addressed by four respected
judges of Supreme Court. All those issues in the press conference
pertained to interior issues of the judiciary. It pertained to
administrative issues of the highest court in the country. It was an
internal affair of the judiciary,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
*Patra, slamming the Congress, had said that Indian democracy “has
shown the mirror” to the party, and termed its attempt “to fish (for) an
opportunity where none existed politically” wrong.

Peace Is Doable
The aboriginal inhabitants of Jambydvipa/Prabuddha Bharath includes
SC/STs/OBCs/Religious Minorities and even the poor upper castes. They
all belong to the same single race.
All of them practice not to be evilbut to be good and also mindful.
All of them believe that :
“I do not wish to be killed by other living beings. So I will practice not kill!
I do not want others to steal my belongings. So I will practice not steal others belongings!
I do not want others to lie to me. So I will not tell lies!
I do not want others to take my husband/wife by others. So I will practice not to indulge in sexual misconduct!
If I consume intoxicant drinks I will violate all the above precepts. So I will not consume any intoxicant drinks!
It is just 1% intolerant, cunning, crooked, number one terrorists of
the world, ever shooting, lynching lunatic, mentally retarded violent,
mentally retarded cannibal chitpavan brahmins of RSS (Rakshasa Swayam
Sevaks) who are not aboriginal inhabitants of the country who practice
doing evil deeds like hatred, anger, jealousy, delusion which are
defilement of the mind requiring mental treatment in mental asylums have
gobbled the Master Key by tampering the fraud EVMs to win elections to
practice their stealth, shadowy, discriminatory hindutva cult that
believes in the chitpavan brahmins as 1st rate athmas (souls) kshatrias,
vysias, shuras as 2nd,3rd,4th rate souls and the aboriginal inhabitants
as having no souls at all so that they can do all sorts of atrocities
on them. But the Awakened One with Awareness the Buddha never believed
in any soul said that all are equal. The chief architect of the
Marvelous Modern Constitution Dr BR Ambedkar imbibed the same and made
provisions in Universal Adult Franchise which is being negated by the
If you ask most Indians in
what kind of society they want to live, they’ll tell you they want to
live in a free and tolerant India.
Indians want to live in
harmony as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and as members of any
religion of their choosing. They don’t want to be accused of being
anti-nationalist because of their diverse identities and beliefs, or of
participating in fraudulent conversions when they practice and share
their faith as enjoined in the constitution.
Christians want to
celebrate Easter and Christmas in peace, in the same way Muslims want to
celebrate Ramadan and Eid and Hindus their holy days.
Indians fall in love with someone from a different caste or religion,
they want their families and communities to be accepting and welcoming.
When Muslims and Hindus from lower castes sit down for a meal, they want
to do so without fear of retaliation because their diet offends someone
Above all, Indians want an India where every citizen has
dignity and enjoys the constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of thought,
speech and religion. If there’s one thing Indians certainly don’t want
it is one culture or faith imposed on the entire population.
But that hasn’t been the case as of late.
On Dec. 6, India watched in horror a grisly video that showed a
resident of Rajasthan hacking to death a Bengali Muslim migrant worker
and then setting his body on fire. The killer turns to the camera, held
by a 14-year-old boy, and says this would be the fate of all “love
jihadists,” a disparaging term used by far-right Hindu extremists who
accuse Muslim men of romancing Hindu girls to convert them to Islam.
In a nation of 1.3 billion people, a crime of this nature should be
extremely rare, but this is not an isolated event. In the past couple of
years, India has descended into a state of violence and intolerance
largely abetted by a minority of religious extremists. These extremists
emerged in force after the BJP came to power in 2014, and they’ve
targeted anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their narrow view of what it
means to be Indian. They’ve exploited cultural identities, pitting
Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Indians from different castes and social
groups against each other. This is “cultural terrorism,” because it
weaponizes cultural differences to incite violence.
terrorism has resulted in violence against SC/STs — previously known as
untouchables — Muslims, Hindu intellectuals and in some places against
Christians. Who can forget the public flogging of four SC/STs in Una,
which triggered the greatest SC/ST movement in recent history? Or the
murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh, which has silenced many
intellectuals who dared to speak truth to public leaders?
have been pronounced on scholars like Kancha Ilaiah, who criticized the
hoarding of wealth within caste groups. Christians have been arrested,
beaten and accused of engaging in fraudulent conversion activities —
simply for singing Christmas carols or taking Christian kids to Bible
Even Bollywood hasn’t escaped unscathed.
Rajasthan,” a film based on a 14th-century legend drew the ire of a
local group who said the movie disrespected the community. The group
threatened the director and the leading actress, who had to get special
police protection. With the help of local legislators, they pushed the
Central Board of Film Certification to appoint a panel of historians to
watch the movie and judge its historicity.
More than suppressing
the freedoms of expression and faith, the cultural clashes have hindered
India’s economic growth. Last year’s ban on cattle slaughter upended
the livelihood of millions of SC/STs, Muslims and lower castes, and
encouraged vigilante groups to attack innocent farmers, traders and
workers. The ban was an attempt to impose the culture that venerates the
cow on those who don’t subscribe to this worldview.
believe these incidents represent Hinduism, for true Hinduism promotes
peace and coexistence, yet it’s undeniable the majority of perpetrators
of this cultural terrorism are Hindu extremist groups who feel they can
commit crimes with impunity. Their violence is triggering more violence.
This past July a group of radical Muslims murdered an RSS worker in
retaliation for the murder of a Muslim activist.
I doubt Murderer
of democratic institutions (Modi) intended this for India, especially
since he campaigned on an India for all platform. Yet the lack of action
from some in his government when citizens are physically abused, killed
and hated is making matters worse.
For too long some politicians have exploited cultures and religions to polarize the Indian people in order to win elections.
Their constant appeasement of both minority and majority populations only aggravates tensions between people groups.
The true strength of a majoritarian government in a democracy is how it
deals with those who are not part of the majority. This is the test for
leaders today, putting national unity ahead of political gain.
India sits at the threshold of its greatest days ever, but we will never
achieve our full potential if we do not learn to respect the dignity
and freedom of every citizen and live in peace with each other.
