Uttar Pradesh: 1 killed, houses torched as Thakurs, SC/STs clash in Saharanpur
Lucknow: In the second
incident of violence in Saharanpur within a fortnight, one person was on
Friday killed and at least 15 others, including a police officer, were
injured as members of two castes clashed over loud music being played
during a procession.
Around 20-25 youths of upper caste
Thakur community from Shabbirpur village were on their way to Simlana
village under Badgaon police station to take part in a function to
garland the statue of Rajput warrior-king Maharana Pratap, when the SC/ST locals objected to the loud music being played by them.

police report sent to the state headquarters here said the SC/STs
objected to the “raucous” celebration, triggering an exchange of words.
It soon snowballed into a full-blown clash with both the groups throwing
stones and bricks at each other, it added.
The SC/STs asked the processionists to turn off the music blaring out of loudspeakers as they passed by a Ravidas temple.
police team, which rushed to the spot, managed to pacify the Thakur
youths and asked them to return to their village, but they soon returned
with more people and indulged in brickbatting and arson, torching 15 to
20 SC/ST houses as well as vehicles including those of the police.
many as 16 persons, including a police officer, were injured in the
resulting clashes. Of them, Sumit Rajput (35) later succumbed to his
Fire tenders were rushed to the village, the
report said, adding that the Inspector General of Police, Meerut, the
Deputy Inspector General of Police, Saharanpur, besides the local
District Magistrate and the Senior Superintendent of Police were camping
in the village to monitor the situation.
On 20 April,
communal clashes had broken out in the district during a SC/ST
procession to celebrate BR Ambedkar’s birth centenary. Around a dozen
people were injured in the clashes that erupted after members of another
community objected to the procession.
BJP MP from Saharanpur Raghav Lakhanpal was among those booked in connection with the incident.
Mayawati says under BJP saffron brigade enjoying free hand in breaking law in UP
Lucknow: BSP chief Mayawati today echoed
Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav’s comments on law and order in
Uttar Pradesh, alleging that the “saffron brigade” has been given a free
hand to break the law. She alleged that instead of doing concrete work
in the wider interest of the state, the BJP government here after grabbing power by distorting, rigging and tampering the fraud EVMs, like the
one at the Centre, was giving more importance to gaining cheap
BSP chief Mayawati. PTI
had yesterday remarked that those wearing saffron scarves had got the
licence to beat up policemen and attack police stations after the change
of guard in Uttar Pradesh.
The comments from both
leaders came in the backdrop of right-wing activists thrashing policemen
in Agra besides other law and order related incidents in the state.
“The saffron brigade has been given freedom to play with the law and
order of the state like it was given to goondas and mafia elements of
the ruling party in the previous (SP) government,” she told party
leaders at a meeting in Lucknow.
Mayawati said there is a
dangerous trend growing under the present government of people trying
become “heroes” by playing with law and order, which she said had been
evident at all levels during the previous govenrment. Taking feedback on
the functioning of the state government, she said the deprived sections, SC/STs and backwards were
feeling harassed because of the policies and programmes of the ruling
party, and their condition was no different from what it was during the
Mayawati, who has announced that her party
will contest the coming urban body polls on the party symbol, also
reviewed the preparations for it and issued directives to party men to
deal with the political challenges.
Stop policy of saffron appeasement, BSP president Mayawati tells BJP
Lucknow: The BJP
government’s policy of ”saffron appeasement” was impacting law and order
in the state, BSP president Mayawati said on Saturday while demanding
stern action against those behind the caste clashes in Saharanpur.

violence and playing with law and order has become a common sight in
the name of saffron appeasement of the BJP government which grabbed power by tampering, rigging, and distorting the fraud EVMs which has also
caused fear and terror among the people,” Mayawati said in a party
release a day after the Saharanpur violence in which one person was
killed and at least 15 injured.
Expressing concern over
the incident, she asked the government to immediately work towards
restoring peace and order. The people would lose their faith in the
government machinery otherwise, she added.
The BSP chief
asked the BJP government to shun saffron appeasement and do justice with
the people of the state by following what they say.
has become a sort of fashion to set new traditions by taking out
processions without permission and create violence … the BJP
government has totally failed to control such elements,’ she
said. ”After communal incidents, casteist clashes have rocked the state
and this proves that better law and order and crime control is not
something that BJP can manage,” Mayawati said.
Saharanpur clashes, that saw brickbats and arson, broke out following a
dispute over loud music being played during a procession being taken out
by 20-25 youths belonging to the upper caste Thakur community who were
going to take part in a function to garland a statue of Rajput warrior
king Maharana Pratap.
SC/ST locals objected to the loud music in the procession that was going from Shabbirpur village to Simlana village.
Uttar Pradesh: In hopes of govt posting, BJP workers throng RSS camps after coming to power by rigging, tampering and distorting thefraud EVMs.
In the seven-day
initial training camps RSS trains volunteers about its organisation,
ideology, background, functioning and programmes.
SINCE THE Yogi Adityanath government took over after tampering, rigging and distorting the fraud EVMs , BJP workers have been
visiting RSS office-bearers across UP to ensure that they find a place
at the annual Sangh Shiksha Varg or initial training camps (ITC) that
the Sangh organises in districts every year in October. The reason: Most
feel the mention of the camp in their resumes would help them get
posting in government corporations and boards.
In the seven-day ITC, RSS trains volunteers about its organisation,
ideology, background, functioning and programmes. Those who have cleared
Class X and regularly attend RSS shakhas are shortlisted for the camps.
After completing ITC, those interested in working for the RSS are
shortlisted for official training camps (OTC). Under this, they have to
attend 20-day training programmes for three consecutive years. While the
first two OTCs are organised at Prant and Khestra levels, the third is
organised at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur.
“With the formation of the new government, an exercise has been
started for posting government lawyers and chairpersons of corporations
and boards and advisors in the state departments. Many are visiting RSS
pracharaks at the districts and prants seeking entry to ITCs,” said an
“Those not aware of the process, have directly got enrolled for OTCs.
While first-year OTC in Awadh prant will begin in Lakhimpur on May 22,
second-year OTC in Sultanpur will start from May 23. They want to attend
the OTCs because the state government has already started the process
to fill up several postings in the government,” he added.
“Murderers of democratic institutions (Modi)
and Adityanath both have RSS background and can
rely upon the honesty of RSS workers. Hence, those seeking postings in
the government are trying to attend the camps, so that they could claim
in their applications and resumes that they are affiliated to the RSS,”
said the functionary said.
If any person makes a false claim in his application for job and
resume, it will be cross checked, he claimed, adding that since 2004,
RSS has been maintaining records of volunteers who have undergone
training. Volunteers of RSS offshoots too want to be enrolled in the
training camps, the functionary said.
Sources in BJP said that several party workers from across UP are
submitting job applications to RSS office-bearers with an appeal that
their names be recommended for postings in the government. “But we have a
filter system. Affiliation with the RSS is cross-checked by district
and prant office-bearers. Claims made by the applicants can be easily
verified,” said a BJP leader.
“Getting a government job is not the only reason for the increase in
the number of training camp aspirants. After Modi gobbled the Master Key by distorting the fraud EVMs to win elections to came to
power, the number of RSS members have also increased. At least 500 youths join RSS every day in the
region,” said an RSS functionary.
America enlisted RSS in one of the Biggest Terrorist Organisation in the World
New Delhi: A US-based risk management and consulting
company has put the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in its category
of ‘Threat Group’ and called it “a shadowy, discriminatory group that
seeks to establish a Hindu Rashtra, a Hindu Nation.”

The websites describes:
“The RSS is a stealth, shadowy, discriminatory group that seeks to establish a hindutva cult. The group is considered the radical
ideological parent group BJP which gobbled the Master Key by distorting, rigging and tampering the fraud EVMs.
“The RSS was
founded in 1925 by vir savarkar one of the intolerant, violent, militant, shooting, lynching, lunatic, mentally retarded, number one terrorist cannibal psychopath chitpawan brahmins like the deadly murderer nathuram godse. Their philosophy, called hindutva believes in manu smiriti ie., brahmins as 1st rate, kshatrias as 2nd, vysias as 3rd, shudras as 4th rate athmas (souls) and the untouchables as having no souls at all so that they can inflict any harm and harass them while the Buddha never believed in any soul. He said all are equal. The chief architect of the Modern Constitution and Democracy Dr Ambedkar made provisions for equality, liberty, fraternity for all societies alike followed by Late BSP chief Kanshiram and Present President of BSP Ms Mayawati and millions of Sarvajan samaj volunteers.
The Chitpavan or Kokanastha brahmin (i.e. “brahmins native to the Konkan”), is a Hindu Brahmin community from Konkan, the coastal region of the state of Maharashtra in India. The community came into prominence during the 18th century when the Peshwa from the Bhat family of Balaji Vishwanath became the de facto rulers of the Maratha empire. Under the British Raj,
they were the first Hindu community in Maharashtra to flock to western
education and as such they provided the bulk of social reformers,
educationalists and nationalists of the late 19th century. Until the 18th century, the chitpavans were held in low esteem by the Deshastha, the older established brahmin community of Maharashtra region.
According to Bene Israeli myth, the Chitpavan and Bene Israel are
descendants from a group of 14 people shipwrecked off the Konkan coast.
One group converted to hindutva as chitpavan brahmins, the other
remained Jewish or Bene Israel.
Originally the myth pertained to Chitpavans only, but a certain section
of society was obsessed with their lineage, hence furthered the name of
Role in Indian politics
After the fall of the Maratha Empire in 1818, the Chitpavans lost
their political dominance to the British. The British would not
subsidize the Chitpavans on the same scale that their caste-fellow, the
Peshwas had done in the past. Pay and power was now significantly
reduced. Poorer chitpavan students adapted and started learning English
because of better opportunities in the British administration.
Some of the prominent figures in the Hindu reform movements of the 19th and 20th centuries came from the Chitpavan Brahmin community. These included Dhondo Keshav Karve, Justice Mahadev Govind Ranade, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, Gopal Ganesh Agarkar, Vinoba Bhave.
Some of the strongest resistance to change also came from the very same
community.The vanguard and the old guard clashed many times. D. K.
Karve was ostracised. Even Tilak offered penance for breaking caste or
religious rules.One was for taking tea at Poona Christian mission in
1892 and the second was going overseas to England in 1919.
The Chitpavan community includes two major politicians in the Gandhian tradition:
Gopal Krishna Gokhale whom Gandhi acknowledged as a preceptor, and
Vinoba Bhave, one of his outstanding disciples. Gandhi describes Bhave
as the Jewel of his disciples, and recognized Gokhale as his
political guru. However, strong opposition to Gandhi also came from
within the chitpavan community. V D Savarkar, the founder of the hindutva cult ,
was a chitpavan brahmin. Several members of the chitpavan community
were among the first to embrace the hindutva cult, which they
thought was a logical extension of the legacy of the Peshwas and
These chitpavans felt out of place with the Indian social reform
movement of Mahatama Phule and the politics of Mahatama Gandhi.
Large numbers of the community looked to Savarkar, the Hindu Mahasabha and finally the RSS. Gandhi’s assassins Narayan Apte and Nathuram Godse, drew their inspiration from fringe groups in this reactionary trend.
Though the RSS opposed the EVMs while the BJP was in Opposition now after gobbling the Master Key they have become part of the government.
RSS favours paper ballots, EVMs subjected to public scrutiny
Joining the controversy regarding the reliablity of Electronic
Voting Machines (EVMs) which have been questioned by political
parties, the RSS today asked the Election Commission (EC) to revert
back to tried and tested paper ballots and subject EVMs to public
scrutiny whether these gadgets are tamper proof. In an editorial
titled ‘Can we trust our EVMs?’, The Organiser, the RSS mouthpiece,
noted it was a fact that till date an absolutely tamper-proof machine
had not been invented and credibility of any system depends on
‘transparency, verifiability and trustworthiness’ than on blind and
atavistic faith in its infallibility. The issue is not a ‘private
affair’ and it involves the future of India. Even if the EVMs were
genuine, there was no reason for the EC to be touchy about it, the
paper commented. The Government and the EC can’t impose EVMs as a fait
accompli on Indian democracy as the only option before the voter.
There were flaws like booth capturing, rigging, bogus voting,
tampering and ballot paper snatching in the ballot paper system of
polling leading the country to switch over to the EVMs and all these
problems were relevant in EVMs too. Rigging was possible even at the
counting stage. What made the ballot papers voter-friendly was that
all aberrations were taking place before the public eye and hence open
for corrections whereas the manipulations in the EVMs is entirely in
the hands of powers that be and the political appointees manning the
sytem, the paper commented. The EVM has only one advantage —
’speed’ but that advantage has been undermined by the staggered polls
at times spread over three to four months. ‘’This has already killed
the fun of the election process,'’ the paper noted. Of the dozen
General Elections held in the country, only two were through the EVMs
and instead of rationally addressing the doubts aired by reputed
institutions and experts the Government has resorted to silence its
critics by ‘intimidation and arrests on false charges’, the paper
observed, recalling the arrest of Hyederabad-based technocrat Hari
Prasad by the Mumbai Police. Prasad’s research has proved that the
EVMs were ‘vulnerable to fraud’. The authorities want to send a
message that anybody who challenges the EC runs the risk of
persecution and harassment, the RSS observed. Most countries
around the world looked at the EVMs with suspicion and countries like
the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Ireland had all reverted back to
paper ballots shunning EVMs because they were ‘easy to falsify, risked
eavesdropping and lacked transparency’. Democracy is too precious
to be handed over to whims or an opaque establishment and network of
unsafe gizmos. ‘’For the health of Indian democracy it is better to
return to tried and tested methods or else elections in future can
turn out to be a farce,'’ the editorial said.

In its ‘Intel analysis,’ it further adds, “The RSS was banned in 1948
following the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi by an ex-RSS member,
Describing violence as ‘Group Activities’ for the RSS, the site
further says, “Violence has been a strategy for the Sangh movement has been clear about the need for violence, particularly
communal riots and caste conflicts. The Sangh has incited rioting to cause further chasms
between religions and castes and thus a further separation of religions, and to
rally the philosophy of hindutva.”

Former top cop SM Mushrif claims RSS is ‘India’s number 1 terrorist organisation’
Former Maharashtra inspector general of police SM Mushrif on Thursday
described the activists of RSS as ‘India’s number one terrorist
organisation’. Mushrif was quoted saying at an event in Kolkata: “RSS
activists have been chargesheeted in at least 13 cases of terror acts in
which RDX has been used. If organisations like Bajrang Dal are taken
into the account, then the number of such cases goes up to 17.”
“The RSS is India’s number one terrorist organisation, there is no
doubt on this,” said Mushrif, referring to the 2007 Mecca Masjid bombing
in Hyderabad, the 2006 and 2008 Malegaon blasts in Maharashtra and the
2007 Samjhauta Express bombings among others.
He also added that the RSS as a terror organisation had nothing to
do with political power. “The RSS as a terror organisation has nothing
to do with political power. It is immaterial which party is in power. It
is the system that is working, it’s the Brahminical system. And when I
say Brahminical, it doesn’t mean the Brahmin, it’s the mentality, the
attitude to dominate and oppress,” he said.
However, Mushrif was not in agreement with the view that intolerance
was rising in recent times. “Intolerance has been going on for a long
time. There have been many severe bigger incidents earlier, I don’t
understand why it is being highlighted now,” he asked.
He also reiterated his claim that the Intelligence Bureau (IB)
masterminded the killing of Hemant Karkare, who was probing the
involement of Hindu radicals during the the Mumbai terror attack in
2008. He said: “There is clinching evidence about the IB’s involvement
but all efforts to establish that have been defeated. Our efforts to
call for an independent probe have always been defeated. Unless there is
a massive public movement, this will never be established,” said
Mushrif, who made the sensational claims in his book “Who Killed
