Attacks on Journalism and Minorities in India

India is a vast country where language, culture, beliefs and way of life change with each mile. For hundreds of years, people with different belief systems reside here with peace and brotherhood. Equality, compassion and freedom of expression remain the basic cornerstone for such diversity. As our founding fathers and people in India have always believed in “equality in diversity”. Indians believe that they flourish, grow and sustain for ages due to their ability to trust in the diversity of thoughts, expression, and cultures.

But, the present socio-political scenario in India is depicting a different picture with incidents of attacks on minority groups, journalists, marginalized and those who have shown the courage to express themselves contrary to their power and muscles.

We are witnessing a time where the constitutional fundamental rights of people are constantly under attack by the people in power.

Unity in Diversity is in Danger

Many marginalized and minority groups, especially the Muslim minority are being constantly threatened with the introduction of derogatory Laws and insecurities like the National Register for Citizens (NRC), Cow Protection Act, Anti Conversion Law, Delhi riots, derogatory slogans, cow vigilante groups among others.

Established ministers in government positions of responsibility and accountability are openly giving slogans against minority groups that are creating rafts and hatred in society and promoting riots as we witnessed in Delhi riots in November 2020 with loss of precious lives and property.

Indian Constitution clearly states India as a secular nation with equal rights and duties for all citizens without any discrimination on the grounds of religion. But contrary to the protection and promotion of this right, the secular nature of the Indian State seems to be diluting with an open declaration to make India a “Hindu Rashtra” that is a nation of Hindu Citizens.

As a result of this melancholy, repressive force and unconstitutional laws and policies, many voices emerged for the equal protection of laws and rights for the safeguards of minorities and marginalized citizens of India.

But sadly and unbelievably these free expressions are also being tried to repress within the unlawful application of acts and actions.

Voices are being tried to suppress and the media as the fourth pillar of democracy is now no more a medium of free expression and a watchdog of Indian democracy.

Anti conversion laws are being introduced in the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state of India, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, and Jharkhand. 

Arrests of Muslim men are taking place under this law as they are accused of luring Hindu women into marriage with the sole purpose of conversion to Islam. This whole propaganda is being coined as “Love Jihad“. 

Such marriages can be nullified and men can be punished with a non-bailable jail term of up to ten years. This law is very subjective and targets only a particular minority group. It snatches the fundamental rights of citizens to live a life with dignity and choice.

Attacks on Christians 

Besides the Muslim minority group, the Christian minority that makes up 2% of the Indian population is also under attack by people of extremist mindset. 

These attacks on religious minority groups are validated by the far right group who claim that a string of forced conversions is taking place in the country and they are just protecting their culture and Hindu religion.

A joint report by United Christians Forum, Association for Protection of Civil Rights and United Against Hate revealed that more than 300 attacks took place against Christians in India in 2021 alone. These incidents of attacks are creating an atmosphere of religious intolerance in society and subjugating the rights of citizens.

Farmers are Labelled as “Khalistanis”- a Separatist Group

Another minority group that comes to the radar of Hindu extremists are Sikhs. During farmers’ protest against new farm law in November 2020, senior BJP leaders and their supporters blamed Sikh farmers for having a “Khalistani” agenda, a reference to a Sikh separatist insurgency that took place during the 1980s and 1990s in India. Moreover, these peaceful protestors were called “parasites” and also named international support of these farmers as a “foreign destructive ideology”. This is surely very unfortunate for the long-cherished Indian democracy.

Attack on Fourth Pillar of Democracy

An environment can be seen in India where every voice is now being crushed in the name of being separatist, traitor and anti-nationalist, if not supportive of the majority group or is critical of any government policy, law or views.

How can critics of the government be depicted as anti-nationals?

India dropped to 142 out of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index 2020 which shows the reality of a nation which always prides itself on its vibrant and competitive media.

Also Read: Journalism: not a safe profession

The beauty of Indian democracy is in the existence of different views and thoughts but with one notion that the growth and development of India lie in its diversity.

Even journalists who were covering farmers’ protests and Delhi riots were charged with baseless criminal activities and framed for sedition, promotion of communal hatred, and threat to national integration.

These were the attempts to crush peaceful protests, threatening critics against the government and harassing those who were present at the protest spot. Journalists Association and opposition parties condemned these attacks on journalists.

Some citizens of India are being promoted as more Indian while some as less Indian with a particular ideology of tearing India apart on religious lines. Many now believe that Indian democracy is diminishing with attacks on freedom of speech and journalism.

A report by Freedom House said that the state of journalism in Indian democracy is sending signals to the world that making the government accountable is not the responsibility of the media. It is now believed that journalism is not safe in India where journalists are being threatened and trolled for any criticism against the government as reported in a study by Free Speech Collective.

Women journalists are even more in danger as they are heavily trolled on social media and receive rape threats, says a Delhi based freelance journalist.

India has been polarised into two categories of journalists. One group that is largely associated with mainstream media and supporting the Government unconditionally and hence reporting freely on television, newspaper, and social media. Another group is presenting its contradicting views without any regard to getting government support or praise. This second group is largely being targeted as traitors and anti-national.

No country can become a world leader when it can not guarantee the rights of its citizens. India is a huge country with more than 1.3 billion population. It’s always been fascinating for such a huge population to live in harmony. But the current situation of communal disharmony, hatred and insecurity can be detrimental for Indian people as it can deter international business sentiments against India and can hinder India’s aim of economic and sustainable development with social, health and mental well being for all.


To the peoples of the world: Israel is Carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families



Israel is carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families.

Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz and Mauthhausen to Palestinian homes, neighborhood, hospitals and mosques.

The title of this brief article is not a hyperbole or a dramatic overstatement meant to attract attention or gain sympathy. It is rather a reflection of reality.

Indeed, if a holocaust is about annihilating people, especially civilians and Palestinian families, the Israeli army, the Wehrmacht of our time, has been exterminating entire Palestinian families-the father, the mother and all the children.

We are not speaking about one isolated incident or a few incidents where one stray missile hit a home inadvertently or children killed as a result of collateral damage.

We are rather talking about carrying out a real holocaust against Palestinian families, an official policy endorsed and pursued by the government of Israel to wipe out numerous Palestinian households for the purpose of bringing the Palestinians to their knees.

This is Israel’s way of wreaking shock and awe on the defenseless and helpless Palestinians.

So far, more than 25 thousand entire Gaza households have been targeted by Israeli bombing. More than 12 thousands have been killed half of them are children and women.

Just imagine your own family being annihilated by a missile launched from high altitude. This nightmare has effectively become a routine experience in Gaza.

Israel today is emulating the Nazis and other criminal offenders throughout history. Don’t invoke the mantra of anti-Semitism. In the final analysis, when Jews think, behave and act like the Nazis thought, behaved and acted, they (the Jews) become Nazis themselves, pure and simple.

Yes, I do recognize there are many kind-hearted Jews who reject this Nazi-like savagery. None the less, we must call the spade a spade. These atrocities are being enthusiastically supported by the vast majority of Israelis, including ordinary people, intellectuals and rabbis. Israel-2023 does have much in common with Nazi-Germany. Claiming otherwise would be both dishonest and malicious.

Real holocaust

Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in the Gaza Strip.

A regional military superpower thanks to unrestricted American backing and support, Israel is simply waging a war of extermination against a thoroughly persecuted people whose only “crime” is its enduring vigor and longing for freedom from the shackles of Talmudic Jewish Nazism, a Satanic ideology which views all humanity-save Jews-as animals whose lives have absolutely no sanctity.

There is no doubt that the ongoing Israeli rampage of murder and terror is an expression of that genocidal Talmudic mentality. It is a mindset that is even more nefarious than the Nazi ideology.

We Palestinians have been at the receiving end of Jewish criminality and murderousness for several decades. We know it too well and need no one to give us lectures on “Israel’s civility and humanity”

In the final analysis, a country that murders thousands of children and other innocent civilians rather knowingly and deliberately in order to create deterrence is neither civilized nor humane. It is tantamount to fornicating with truth to call Israel humane and civilized.

The truth of the matter is that Israel is a diabolical Judeo-Nazi entity that has much in common with the Third Rich.

Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz to Palestinian homes, neighborhoods and streets. Israel is carrying out a real holocaust against innocent Palestinian families.

This is not really a war. War is fought between armies. The Palestinians don’t have an army, or navy or air force. The Palestinians simply can not protect their own children from overwhelming barbarianism, played out in full view of the entire world.

Yes, there have been projectiles fired on Jewish colonies from the Gaza Strip, but these projectiles are essentially innocuous from the military view point as evident from the nearly zero casualties incurred by Israelis.

Indeed, when there is one dead on one side and 300 on the other side, including 50 children and babies, in addition thousands of maimed civilians and swathes of pornographic destruction of property, we are not really talking about war, even an asymmetrical war. We are actually talking about a real massacre, a massacre that is reminiscent of the time when the Nazis ganged up on European Jewry 70 years ago.

This very real massacre, holocaust, wouldn’t have been carried out had it not been for the flaccidity and leniency and silence displayed in Israel’s face by the bulk of the international community.

This is not to mention the connivance, collusion and conspiratorial roles played by several criminal states and governments, including the United States, a majority of European governments and especially the whore-like Sissi regime in Cairo which is shamelessly and brazenly siding with Israel against the Palestinian people.

But never mind, another massacre, another blitzkrieg, another conspiracy won’t finish our people off. It is our kismet that we must die in order to survive.

But those in Washington and London and Cairo who are watching rather passively, probably gleefully, as our children are being incinerated and murdered at the hands of the children, grand children and great-grand children of the holocaust, will one day pay the price for their murderous complicity and ignominy.

We will not forgive or forget.

Israel: A criminal state par excellance



Israel: a criminal state par excellance

In its exaggerated self-infatuation and excessive narcissism, Israel, a criminal state par excellence, often claims it is light upon mankind.

Zionist Jews, who falsely claim allegiance to the prophetic traditions of ancient Israel, are actually mostly atheists.

In fact, Zionism has more in common with the most infamous paragons of evil throughout history than with such Hebrew luminaries as the Prophet Moses, Aaron, Jacob, Joseph, David, and Solomon.

Indeed, ever since its misbegotten birth in 1948, a birth fraught with crimes against humanity, Israel’s modus operandi has been an uninterrupted series of atrocities, oppression, persecution, inequity, and racism.

Thus, Israel, A criminal state par excellence, is also a great falsifier of truth, history by claiming a higher moral ground vis-à-vis the Palestinians, its largely-unwept victims who are still crying to the seventh heaven for justice.

Israel is already starving and tormenting 1.6 million Gazans, denying them food, clean water, and other necessities of life. The 17-year draconian siege is apparently meant to punish Gazans for electing Hamas which simply refuses to recognize Israel for religious and moral reasons. The international community  sought to overlook Israel’s  real crimes against humanity inflicted repeatedly  on  some two million helpless Palestinians languishing under a N-a-z-i-like siege imposed and maintained by Israel.

Israel portrays herself as a beacon of light in a sea of dictatorship, tyranny, and oppression,

What Israel, a criminal state par Excellance, refuses to tell the world, however, is the fact that the Jewish state through its ubiquitous tentacles in America, Europe and elsewhere to enable, shield, sustain, and support tyrannical regimes in the region such as the Sissi police state in Egypt, the feudal regimes in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain.

Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in Jerusalem and in the Gaza Strip.

Israel, ruled by supremacist and megalomaniac Jews who think that no country or entity under the sun has a right to criticize Israel’s appalling maltreatment of the Palestinians, believes it has an unending free season on its victims.

Those are the Nazi-minded ideologues who are indoctrinated in Talmudic Jewish supremacy and who believe that the non-Jews lives have no sanctity , those are the Talmudic thugs who believe that the Palestinians must either be expelled or massacred .

As to its victims, Israel seeks always to demonize and dehumanize them so that the world will react indifferently if not callously when Israel murders them, expels them from their homes, steals their land and property as well as demolish their homes, a nearly daily callous practice the state of the Jews carries out in the West Bank.

Israel was born in sin. It will always be a sinful state, no matter what we read in the New York Times and the Washington Post or what we see on CNN and Fox News.

World passively watching as Israel perpetrates open-ended massacre in Gaza



The Israeli army, which can be called the Jewish Wehrmacht given its Nazi-like behavior, continues to pound the Gaza Strip from ground, sea and air. According to sources in Gaza, virtually all targets hit so far are civilians.

As many as 3500 Palestinians, virtually all of them civilians, have been reported killed so far. Thousands others were injured, many sustaining life-threatening wounds.

The scenes of mutilated and maimed children, some of whose bodies are seen protruding through the rubble of their homes, destroyed by missiles fired by American-supplied F-16 fighter jets, seem to verify the view that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians in Gaza knowingly and deliberately.

Israeli leaders and military officials are openly gloating over the high death toll among Palestinian civilians. They blame Hamas for the orgy of killing. However, virtually all Palestinians don’t buy the Israeli logice.

As we all know, this is not the first time Israel indulges in such war crimes.

Israel has always been a regular perpetrator of war crimes . Indeed, one would exaggerate very little by arguing that Israel itself is a war crime or a crime against humanity.

I am not going to spend time refuting Israeli hasbara lies, blaming Hamas for the latest conflagration. Having been a vigilant observer of Israeli behavior for several decade , I can honestly argue that honesty and Israel can not really be used in the same sentence. Israel and honesty are an eternal oxymoron.

As always, Israel violated the uneasy truce reached through Egyptian mediation in 2002. Israeli leaders, proceeding from the Talmudic ideology which views all non-Jews as lesser human beings or virtual animals, don’t feel bound by agreements or treaties reached with “Goyem.

People in the west, long duped and brainwashed by Zionist propaganda, may raise they eyebrows when reading these words. But we who live with these Judeo-Nazis and have been at the receiving end of their murderousness and evilness know better.

We don’t need and won’t accept lectures about the “humanity and civility” of the N-a-z-i-s of our time.

Hamas and other Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza don’t constitute an existential threat to Israel, which has one of the strongest military machines in the world.

In fact, the claim that Gaza is threatening Israel is infinitely ridiculous. The thoroughly-starved and hermetically blockaded Gazans have a hard time feeding their children, let alone pose any meaningful threat to the N-a-z-i Germany of our time, a pugnacious state that more or less tightly controls the most powerful country under the sun, the United States.

It is sad and lamentable that a country of 320 million has allowed itself to be enslaved by Zionist pressure groups, hell-bent on prostituting America and eviscerating it of any semblance of morality for Israel’s sake.

Palestinians have resist Jewish terror

But the Palestinians can not take their very survival for granted. They can’t rely on the so-called international community to shield them against Jewish N-a-z-i-s-m.

Indeed, if the Palestinians don’t defend themselves, who is going to defend them? Obama? Merkel? Or Puten?

Hence, the valiant Palestinian determination to put up a semblance of resistance to the Jewish Wehrmacht. The Israeli assault on Gaza is not an assault on Hamas; It is rather a nefarious aggression against the entire Palestinian people. It is intended to break our people’s will to resist Israeli Nazism. Pure and simple.

To put the matter in a nutshell, the Palestinians in Gaza are simply defending themselves against an overwhelming evil force that is hell bent on ethnically cleansing them and stealing their motherland. Our fighters don’t fire their home-made missiles on Israel because they want to spill Jewish blood. They do it because this is the only means they possess to deter a cannibalistic enemy that can only feel good if and when it spills Palestinian blood.

Besides, the problem with Israel didn’t begin last week or last year.

Just remember that many of the people being now bombarded and murdered by the Jewish Wehrmacht are actually children, grand children and great grand children of the original Palestinian refugees that Israel massacred or brutally expelled out of their homes when the evil state was created in Palestine in 1948.

Hence, the Palestinians in Gaza can not really be terrorists if only because they were never the initiator of violence and terror. The Palestinians were living peaceably in their towns and villages, mostly leading a simple pastoral life until waves of Khazari Jews, who had no real connection with the ancient Israelites, invaded Palestine with the aid of Western countries, especially the evil empire, the United Kingdome.

Yes, it was Britain that put the venomous Jewish snake in the bed of the Palestinian child. Britain, as Noam Chomsky wisely said, can not claim innocence or argue that it didn’t know the snake was so poisonous.

Gaza Massacre: Surviving by dying

Today, Palestinians are sacrificing their lives for their freedom, dignity and survival. This is what they have always been doing from time immemorial. We are very much children of martyrs who were themselves children of martyrs. We survived despite a harsh history of plots and conspiracies that aimed to eradicate us as a people from the face of earth.

We in Gaza will survive the latest Israeli blitz as well

However, the world community ought to feel ashamed for watching the Nazi Germany of our time gang up on a defenseless people in Gaza whose only crime is that it is not part of “the holy tribe,”

This conspicuously immoral world , which doesn’t respect any modicum of respect, will surely have a precarious future. It will face ultimate demise.
