Jumla Man VS Real Man

Currently, Indian Politics is a function of Power but in my view, it should be a function of pre-election announcements, post-election execution by our politicians and development of the state or country. Every month, every year, in every election, we listen to many attractive and impressive promises by our politicians for getting votes and attracting voters. But after voting and forming government we got ‘Baba Ji Ka Thullu’, we expect 100% from or ministers and government and we got maximum 10%. This the scenario of Indian political development. But here I have to say As a political Party – Aam Aadmi Party in doing a better job in compare to other political parties. Now I see that group as a political party, not an activists group. So I think,  we all should compare them as a political party, and as a political party they are doing their best.

Now This has to be clear in every AAM AADMI’s mind.

Our political things are focused in Central and in Delhi Gov. OR In media terms, we can say Modi vs Kejriwal. Both had the agenda of corruption in their manifesto, and this should be in theirs main foucs areas. So let’s compare this big thin and the status on this.

Kejriwal

Reading many editorials and conclusion of most of the editorials are, Corruption in Delhi is Down. And we can see in many ways, it is true. CVC say corruption is Delhi is decreased by 81%.

Here are few other pre-election announcements and post-election status related to corruption issues.

Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill 

Promise: Aam Aadmi Party resolves to legislate the Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill after coming to power. This will ensure a time-bound investigation in matters of corruption. The Delhi Lokpal will have the power to initiate investigations and prosecution against those charged with corruption. Whistleblowers will be provided protection and awarded for their contribution toward creating a just system

Status: AAP promised to “legislate” the Jan Lokpal Bill, and indeed, the bill was cleared in the Delhi Legislative Assembly on 4th December, 2015. The Jan Lokpal can issue necessary orders for full protection for whistleblowers, protect confidentiality, provide security, and initiate criminal action against the person involved in the harassment of whistleblower. However, the legislation’s fate remains unclear as it is yet to get the approval of Lieutenant Governor and Centre.

Citizens’ Charter

Promise: A Citizens’ Charter shall be introduced in all government offices in Delhi.

Status: The Delhi legislative assembly passed the Delhi (Right Of Citizen To Time Bound Delivery of Services) Amendment Bill. Among other provisions, the Bill prioritizes each government department to put out a “comprehensive citizens charter” within 30 days of its notification, and that responsibility lies with the Heads of Department.

Modi

67% Jump in corruption cases. CVC report is here:

Corruption complaints against various government departments jumped by a whopping 67 per cent in 2016 over the previous year, with the Railways topping the list.  Over 11,000 complaints were received against the public sector behemoth, the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has said.  In its annual report tabled in Parliament recently, the probity watchdog said it received a total of 49,847 complaints in 2016, as against 29,838 in 2015 — an increase of 67 per cent.

The number of complaints received by the CVC in 2015 were 50 per cent less than a total of 62,363 received by it in 2014. The CVC had got 31,432 and 37,039 complaints of alleged corruption during 2013 and 2012 respectively, the report said.

Giving details, the CVC said the highest of 11,200 such complaints were against railway employees. Of these 8,852 were disposed of and 2,348 were pending. Further, a total of 1,054 complaints against railway employees were pending for more than six months.
The number of complaints against those under government of National Capital Territory of Delhi has declined with a total of 969 received last year as against 5,139 in 2015.

One Rule, One Nation ! Abolish Triple Talaq

Kids: Talaq! Talaq! Talaq!
Adults: Divorce!
Legends: Discuss the Problem and Find out the solution!

Egypt, Tunisia, Iran and many other ‘ Islamic ‘ countries have already abolished triple talaq rule.

And according to a survey conducted by Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan, more than 90 percent of Muslim women surveyed in India want the “Talaq! Talaq! Talaq!” divorce ritual banned from Muslim personal law in India. There is no mention of oral triple talaq in the Qur’an or Sunnah. This concept was innovated after the death of the prophet (PBUH). Quran says (interpretation of

Quran says (interpretation of meaning) :

Divorced women remain in waiting for three periods, and it is not lawful for them to conceal what Allah has created in their wombs if they believe in Allah and the Last Day. And their husbands have more right to take them back in this [period] if they want reconciliation. And due to the wives is similar to what is expected of them, according to what is reasonable. But the men have a degree over them [in responsibility and authority]. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise. (2:228)

During the lifetime of prophet (PBUH), three divorces were considered as one. This concept isn’t based on evidence from Qur’an or Sunnah and that’s why many Muslims reject it. (Source Reuters)

 

Now it’s high time to abolish Triple Talaq from Muslim society and implement Uniform Civil Code (UCC).

In India criminal code applies equally to all citizens irrespective of their identity. You murder someone, you go to jail. Even civil matters in public domain that relate to contracts, copyright, torts apply equally to everyone, irrespective of their beliefs, caste or religion.

However civil laws related to personal matters like, marriage and divorce, succession and inheritance are not uniform. Communities and people can decide these issues in accordance with their cultural mores or religious doctrines.

Thus upon its last mile journey underneath the legal umbrella; people stand abandoned by the hand of law and are guided solely by their traditions and local power brokers.

Now this situation is problematic as far as Muslim personal laws are concerned (Hindu personal laws are almost equivalent to civil laws) and there are few arguments which can be made for implementing UCC ASAP.

Constitutional Argument:

Citizens of one country cannot and should not be guided by differing laws.The protection and due process of law is the birthright of every citizen without distinction and its limited application in any sphere is not only legally untenable but also against the spirit of a nation and equality of its citizens. This situation of having differing Laws based on identity is a doctrinal aberration and should be dispensed with immediately

Sociological Argument:

To have differing laws is to reaffirm the separation of people of the same society. A society which frames differing laws based on religion is in essence non secular for it is segregating its citizens based on their faith. This communal mind set espoused in state laws is highly divisive and should not be allowed to continue.

Gender Equality Argument:

It is a worth while to look at people who are affected by these separate laws. In case of Muslim personal laws, it is the women and the clerics. Women are dis empowered by personal laws permitting polygamy and unilateral divorce ( triple talaq) while jurors and ulemas are empowered by being in a position of judgment. Muslim personal laws being heavily biased towards males put women in a greatly disadvantageous position and are thus overripe for wholesale reform.

Having looked at why UCC should be implemented here is a look at two main objections, people bring out against its implementation.

Islam Argument

“This is an internal issue to be resolved within canons of Islamic faith and outsiders should have no say in it “

This is a non tenable claim as essence of Islamic faith about person’s relation with God (belief in one God, his revealed message and his last Messenger) does not come into play here. This is about a person’s relation with another person or how social practices in a society will be conducted. State and its secular laws, should have the final dominion over all inter-personal transactions in its territory unless it is a caliphate where God has that dominion and is the deemed regulator of all human transactions as well. So this is essentially a state issue and not a faith issue.

Political Argument

“This current Government is pursuing its covert war against Islam and UCC is another weapon in its arsenal.”

Muslim personal laws have stayed unreformed since 1930s. Every time an attempt is made to update them, resistance crops up. So this argument of current mal-intent would be considered valid if Muslim community leaders would have shown willingness to reform at any point of time in their history (In Rajiv Gandhi’s time who wanted to reform or Jawaharlal Nehru in 1950’s who wanted the same, or Supreme Court who is on record stating the same). Hence this argument of current bad intent, is a mere camouflage for a historical unwillingness to reform.

In essence, everything about Indian society has transformed in last 85 years except Muslim personal laws which continue to remain archaic, patriarchal and gender biased. It is high time political will is displayed, Uniform Civil Code implemented and Muslim community is rescued from its own internal power politics that keeps it chained.

If we really want to work on blind religious faiths, it is advisable for the Muslim Gurus, Government and lawmakers to form a committee with the law, government, senior religious heads and research on this issue and take action accordingly ASAP.

We can’t just humiliate the brave father and his fearless daughter

I Support Gurmehar Kaur, we can not just humiliate the brave father and his fearless daughter.

I, as an Indian, and human does not feel there is anything wrong in what Gurmehar said. She is just 20 years of age and she was barely 2 years when her father sacrificed his life for the country. It does not matter whether he died at Kargil or at any other place. All that matters is, he died fighting for the country. It also does not matter whether she supports the ideology of AAP or any other political party as she is adult and has right to vote and everyone votes according to their political preferences. It also does not matter whether she is studying in the perennially politically charged university of Delhi. All that matters is whether her statement is in the support of war or peace.

She is being threatened, bullied, trolled, and ridiculed for her statement. The missiles of criticism are being showered on her by politicians, cricketer, Bollywood star and the ruling party members. Are these haters more matured than her with regard to their stand on the Pakistan? If yes, than please clarify the following.

When Jahawarlal Nehru, assumed the Prime Minstership of Independent India, he just did not know, what exact foreign policy he should adopt towards Pakistan, which rose up from undivided India. You call someone enemy who is not part of your race and religion. With half of the relatives in Pakistan and other half in India, both the countries have been historically confused with one another in their international relations . The confusion runs high in Pakistan. The confusion also ran high in successive Indian governments. The Indian foreign policy as enshrined in the Constitution is that of the peaceful coexistence but with regard to dealing with Pakistan, there has been no clarity. The politicians, industrialists, media fraternity, singers, actors, producers, script writers and citizens, from both the countries, love and hate each other. Even in the war of 1965 , there was no closure of diplomatic channels and people from both the countries were visiting each other. Even the Indian courts, were puzzled to see the it.

Gurmeher father died in fighting the terrorists sponsored by Pakistan. She is bound to get confused as the same terrorists were exchanged in lieu of hostages at Kandhar by then Government. Despite the bus journey and opening of the boarder, the Kargil incursion happened.

Whether it is Gurmeher, Virendra Sehbag or the ABSU or even those radical groups in university, all are victims of the confusion. They just do not know what exactly Pakistan is to India and vice versa. But Gurmeher’s father was not confused, he got killed. The army men just kill or get killed. They have no confusion. They are clear in their objectives and mind.

My sympathy is completely with Gurmeher and all those who threatened her and spoke derogatory about her , must apologise. If they cannot, than they should clear the above confusion whether Pakistan is friend or enemy?. If Pakistan is friend, than follow what Gurmeher says and if not, than follow what Gurmeher’s martyred fathers did. You can not just humiliate the brave father and his fearless daughter.

Aam Aadmi Party will sweep in Punjab

Revolution always reaches a point where the protagonists are termed as anarchists, but for the overhaul of the existing corrupt system anarchy is the pre requisite.

After the large win in Delhi elections and a lot of successful projects, AAP has become much popular in Punjab than other local parties. On the daily level, I discuss the things about Punjab Politics with my Punjabi Friends and on social media, and I always got some positive feedback fro AAP from them. Of course, the party has huge popularity and credit goes to past governments and their zero level work.

Why AAP will be the first choice in Punjab:
Punjab government completing it’s 5 years, and still, Punjab has bucket full problems. Today Corruption, unemployment, and Drugs are the main problems of Punjab. Also, the government is facing a huge anti-incumbency due to its corrupt practices, the dictatorial attitude of the deputy CM towards other leaders and a very huge rate of unemployment. These all issues have overshadowed their achievements. On the other hand, people hardly believe in Captain Amarinder Singh. Yes, he usually gets the support of urban and business class but remembers that most of the people in Punjab live in villages. Though Captain has a pro-farmer policy but side by side his support for privatization of education and health sector failed to create his good image among various government sector employees and bureaucrats.

So after facing these problems, people want some change, some alternative. A party which can change the Punjab. Currently, this is being seen in form of Aam Admi Party.

“दिल्ली हुयी हमारी है – अब पंजाब की बारी है”

  • Anti-incumbency: here is a heavy anti- incumbency on BJP-SAD government which gives a fair chance for AAP.
  • Change: People are used to SAD-BJP and Congress governments and want change.
  • Anti – Drug Campaign: This will surely help them as this is a major issue in Punjab and AAP are frontrunners in leading this campaign.

Fantastic and Serious Melody By Kumar Vishwas

  • Delhi Factor: Delhi elections have boosted the confidence of AAP and all workers are enthusiastic.
  • Media: Media will surely give the required attention to AAP as it is the newcomer.
  • Anti- corruption: Akali- BJP has done a lot of corruption already and people are fed up with them and as Congress can’t raise an anti-corruption issue, AAP will surely score good points in that terms.

I have some expectations from AAP. I know they can win, they have that much potential but they have to find an honest CM face. As people in Punjab are fed up of Akalis. Punjab has become a hotbed of drugs and druggists. Unemployment, closing factories, Huge mismanagement of funds by the government.All these factors make an opportunity for AAP to win elections.

PS: I’m not from Punjab, just analyzed as I know a lot of people in Punjab and I took their opinion.

Pradhan Sewak Ji – This is not a Bold Decision, this is the worst Decision

Dear Pradhan Sewak Ji, Our media, our politicians are centralized towards Delhi. They are just focused here. Whole India is not Delhi NCR. If we are surviving here, it doesn’t mean, whole India is surviving.  
Here my main concern is, why our Media’s main focus is Delhi – NCR, Every news is focused and centralized towards Delhi. They go and cover Bank and ATMs of Delhi NCR and create a hypothesis. Boss if you want to see the real condition and struggle please go, watch and cover any village of UP. Today they don’t have a single penny. There is single bank for thousand of villages, there is no ATM.
Is this your incredible OR digital India?
No.
Sorry.  This is not.
You made this place like hell.
Pradhanmantri Ji, Public know everything, You are following wrong assumptions, no one is supporting you. The public is just silent because they don’t have any other choice. Call elections tomorrow, they will tell you what exactly you did wrong with them. If you have guts please try this, OR you will see in next state elections. 
Chaiwala can’t take payment online, Small Sabjiwala can’t take payment online, Small rikshaw wala can’t take payment online, Small fruits wala can’t take payment online, a labour man can’t take payment online …. etc. (This list is very long). This is the 80% public of India.  If you are dreaming for 20% or 1% (the list is given below) then you are worst prime minister of India.

Dear Pradhan Sewak Ji, As per your Feku things you just carried out a surgical strike on black money. I want to discuss something with you, but first, I am sharing some stats-

  1. Bad Loans of Indian Banks right now is close to Rs. 6,00,000 crore.
  2. PSU Banks are in a miserable condition right now, and need an immediate infusion of money to shore up their lending capacities.
  3. A few weeks back credit rating agency Moody’s had stated that Indian Banks require Rs. 1.25 lakh crore capital infusion.
  4. In July 2016 the Centre injected 23,000 crores into 13 Public Sector Banks.
  5. Jaitley said it in 2015 that the Centre would pump in more than 70,000 crores in PSU banks in coming 4 years.
  6. This demonetization is nothing but a measure to infuse money in those ailing Banks so as to shore up their lending capacities.
We are just watching the people queuing up banks to deposit their hard earned money, waiting hours for their turn? This is what we got by this surgical strike. To curb the menace of black money? By bringing in new Rs. 2000 note? LOL
You are just simplifying hoarding of black money by bringing in new notes of higher denomination.
We are just a deposit queue. 
Withdrawal queue for big amounts is full with big names, these are some of best friends of our Pradhan Sewak Sahab:-
 

GVK Reddy (GVK Group) (33933 Crores)

Venugopal Dhoot (Videocon Group) (45405 Crores)

Madhusoodan Rao (Lanco Group) (47102 Crores)

G M Rao (GMR Group) (47976 Crores)

Sajjan Jindal (JSW Group) (58171 Crores)

Manoj Gour (Jaypee Group) (75163 Crores)

Goutam Adani (Adani Group) (96031 Crores)

Shashi Ruia & Ravi Ruia (Essar Group) (101000 Crores)

Anil Aggarwal (The Vedanta Group) (103000 Crores)

Anil Ambani (Reliance Group)(125000 Crores)

We are just government’s work, crony capitalism, which just carried out a surgical strike in your pockets, and now you are running like chickens.
The rich don’t keep cash nowadays it’s all in the real estate and Gold.

1. Stock Market would crash – People without having a clear idea about the situation would try to save their fortunes and would start pulling out their money from the stocks that are going to be hit by this storm.

2. People with huge piles of paper currency are going to lose their calm – The day will start with Trade unions and other such unions coming together to protest and do marches.

3. Money’ll be sucked out of the market. – In coming weeks or months, there would be so much decline in trade and commerce.

4. Decline in the GDP – the GDP of India will decline heavily as confusion and tax obstacles in trade will hamper growth.

5. Inconvenience to people:– People will have to become slaves of banks and government officials. Long queues will be a common sight from nowadays.See the long queues ? All middle class and poor people can be seen in queues.

6. Loss to common People :- Many people have fake currency that it unintentional or earned by hard work and they are using it without knowing. Now banks will refuse to take fake money it direct loss for innocent people.

7. Rise in corruption:- imagine this, you have pass Rs. 1 lacs you go to exchange, cashier said “sab nakli hai be! line se hat baki bhi khade hai”,then you are screwed, whther it is fake or not.While local politicians and powerfull people will exchange their notes easily by paying bribes and CAs will facilitate them by finding all loopholes. CAs will be biggest beneficiaries as people have to employ their expensive services.

It will trigger more corruption, which is one of the most effective sources of black money. Those who give cash to the banks, will be asked for explanations, which will increase corruption. It seems it is election funding program for the rulers.

8. Loss of Tax Payers Money :- Rs 500 prnting costs Rs 2.5 and Rs.1000 costs Rs 3 , (approx ).Multiply it by number of notes present in India ;now government has to pay this money from taxpayers.

9. Inflation:- Due to above price rise will occur. All basic goods will cost more.

10. Now understand that since most of the black money is stored in Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes. Since these notes cannot be tendered anymore, the consumption demand will go down drastically (how will people buy jewellery, property and other high value items without black money?). As consumption demand will hit a new low, the economy will essentially find itself in a recession. By this time, government will also start another round of voluntary disclosure scheme and fill its coffers with unprecedented disclosure taxes and fines.

A good way to loot people like the British regime which introduced taxation.

People in remote areas, labor in unorganized sectors are being paid in case. Most payment so made in these denomination notes. India being cash economy may collapse, or at least halt its rural economy by this move.

It is an Indian thing in villages and small towns for housewives to keep their saved cash hidden away from their husbands and other family members. Invalidation of Rs 500 and 100o notes will jeopardize this scheme. Households with liquor problems will provide the husbands to seize control of the hidden cash. Also, general day to day purchase may be impacted due to lack of cash in hand.

Demonetization is not good for BJP’s Health

Many state elections are coming in next few months, demonetization is not good for BJP’s Health, it may give you big shock in Next State Elections.

Many of my friends are commenting on me, I am not accepting good things. Modi ji did a historical thing which will change the India. But really he did? I actively support this move, but the implementation is poor and the blame partly lies with the media and the Opposition.

After a long thought process, I am writing this.

Think about it for a moment. This move does not affect the upper-class elites who can use cards or survive with their existing cash or the ones who actually hoarded black-money in the form of dollars in the Swiss banks, but the Aam Aadmi in the suburban and rural backgrounds. They really feel the pinch in the pocket and would never forgive Modi if situation goes out of control and snowballs into large-scale riots. (I hope it does not , I actively support this move, but the implementation is poor and the blame partly lies with the media and the Opposition).

Elections in India, is never fought on the lines of corruption, economy or policies. Its only us- the middle and upper-class elites who can afford to use social media- talk on those lines. The majority of rural India- still votes on the lines of hunger, employment, caste and religion.

The demonetization affects traders, merchants and small vendors. Infact, traders form the core votebank of BJP in Gujarat and Maharashtra. Their businesses are running in losses.  Read Here

The farmers also find it difficult as this move would threaten their Rabi crop sowing.

A story of a 96-year old who died waiting in a bank for exchanging his notes is shared quite extensively across social media as a ‘proof ’ that demonetization has actually killed people directly-
Read Here

Wow- Thats an eye-ball grabbing headline- Demonetization Woes!. Indeed??.

Never mind the fact that the man was actually suffering from a history of strokes for the past couple of years and would have died anyway- irrespective of him standing in a queue. But who cares about facts?. The man was standing in the bank to exchange his notes. He suffered a stroke and died. So blame the demonetization move and brand Modi as a murderer.
Janta don’t want another Godhra Modi Sir.

If the transition of the notes is smooth and people face no hassles, then this short-term inconvenience would be forgotten and forgiven. If not- people will remember the short term pain more than the intentions of the government behind this move. And it will subsequently reflect in the next elections.

KV Nasha: Fantastic and Serious Melody By Kumar Vishwas

Swachh Punjab. No more Drug Abuse.  Nice initiative by Dr. Kumar Vishwas. Personally I am a big fan of KV. I always follow his poetry and politics. The new video released by him is the next level of inspiration for youth of Panjab and India. (ओये छड्ड दे पुडियाँ जट्टा तेरी गुड़िया करे पुकार…)

Watch his full Song:

This song has touched the vein of Punjabis. The emotional lyrics, combined with hard-hitting visuals makes one convince that Punjab needs a revolution to end the apathy shown towards them by those in power. With the upcoming elections in sight, Kumar Vishwas attempts to project broom as the mass symbol to restore the pride of Punjab.

 

“People who do drugs are not culprits but patients. We have to help them. Culprits are people who are running the drug network,” and alleged that “we all know that in Pathankot attack, how the drug business was one of the factors.” – Dr. Kumar Vishwas

Ask yourself, what is your real contribution towards the society?

Many people want to impact the world. But for most, it remains a futuristic, romantic goal, which they plan to achieve through volunteer work, writing, policy, art, and so on, “some” day. There often is no hint of an intent to do the same in the present. Malice, ego, prejudice and arrogance together limit people from understanding and impacting their immediate sphere of influence.

The ability to impact people around you is a value system, not an end goal. As long as there are people around, impact can be created.

If you want to create impact on the world some day, it would be worthwhile to ask yourself, how much could you have contributed to the lives around you in the past few weeks, and how much you actually did. If the gap is large, then the goal is somewhere misplaced.

Free speech: limits needed, but just enough to keep system functioning

Being able to think limitlessly is more fundamental to a human being, than letting the given day’s socio-cultural constructs determine what to think. While the freedom to express protects one’s most basic human rights, some reasonable restrictions are required to protect the existing systems of which one is part of.

Ideas that define a nation, religion, community, God and governance have changed over time, and will continue to do so. Each new idea emerges as an improvement over traditionally-held ideas, with changing context of life and society. The fact that a new idea challenges the status quo means it will face resistance, but blocking that flow of ideas blocks evolution. Therefore, it is important that space be given for thinkers to express new ideas and discuss and debate their feasibility.

However, here a distinction is required in what challenges the status quo and what insults it. Society, culture, religion and politics provide a much-needed system and order for how we live. Though that system must change with time, the need of one cannot be neglected. So, we need just enough protective forces that keep a system in place: enough to allow space for new ideas, but not so much as to kill the order of the day.

Speech which can be perceived as “anti-national” may invite abhorrence, but as long as it is harmless, its expression must not be limited. In this respect, while freedom to express is still paramount, the implications of that expression cannot be ignored. Article 19(2) of the Constitution puts restrictions on free speech if it is against the sovereignty and integrity of India, national security, international relations, public order, decency or morality, or incites offence.

In today’s world, how a nation approaches ideas can have far-reaching consequences in terms of defence, economy, law and order, security and international cooperation. A new ideology challenging God may result in communal disorder if force is used to enforce that ideology. An idea which seeks a violent end to the current idea of a nation-state may result in a threat to national security. A policy which seeks an immediate end to capitalism may hurt the national economy, and policies which look for a sudden replacement of socialism with capitalism will hurt the most vulnerable citizens.

Ideas must constructively debate and consider; they must not threaten. Ideas must add to the discourse; they should not kill the current discourse. The way ideas are expressed must recognize that at best, they are in transition from one to another.

Expression of new ideas needs to accommodate what is traditionally held, recognizing the context in which the earlier ideas were formed, and appreciating their merits. This will ensure that a reasoned debate takes place and individuals on both sides of what is expressed can weigh what is and what can be.
