Discussion in 'Internal Security' started by parijataka, Nov 11, 2012.
No need for any DFIan even. People like Hasan Nizar are enough for him.
He is a Pakistani expert. In Pakistan, Only hype and whine sales not facts and logic. If you hear any discussion of Pakistani TV, it will more be an entertainment rather than any serious discussion except few good people such as Rauf Kalsara, Nazam Shetty etc. Some Pakistanis in exile are really able to speak truth such as Tarek Fatah, Husain Haquani, Taher Gora etc. One brave women was there in Pakistan who just died (may be Killed). Asma Jhahangir. Hates of to her. She gave Napaki army a single handed fight for years before she was eliminated.
There is no sense in their talks. Any time they realize in their debates that India is much too powerful for them, they start talking about ATAMI DHAMAKA.. They've made of joke of nuclear bombs.
Do you know that one porki Journalist threatened to nuke India if Tomato supply is stopped.
Yup. A couple of years back, on live television, the guests even boasted about porki nuke miniaturizing technology reaching the size of a tennis ball which can be thrown as grenades. So now they've got a tennis ball nuke as well.
once a porki on PDF said that Porkis have a Nuke bomb of Tennis ball size. I replied him that he was wrong. Infact, Porkistan has a mini Nuke bullet which can be fired from Rifle.
He might have believed that as well. Its very easy to boast them up.
The only online reference i can find is that this "strong wimmin opposing government" thing was being peddled by some documentary director called Tarun Bhartiya who was part of 2015 award waapsi gang.
Today, I wish to return my National Award for Best Editor Non Fiction for “In Camera – Diaries of a Documentary cameraman”, 2009, in protest against the dark times this country is being made to go through. Times are truly dark and one must be honest to say this darkness was in the making for long: it hasn’t descended suddenly upon us. There was unease in me even when I took the Award – the Rajat Kamal – in 2009. There was enough to cry about even then. The award itself was an accident, since I never actively sought for the award by submitting the film I had edited for consideration of National Award, since that privilege is always with the producer. But I took the award anyway and even felt some pride. It meant recognition from a peer group, a sign of appreciation of my work from other film makers whose work I admired and had learnt a great deal from – a fraternity to which I belong. Today the unease has grown and examples of the truly greats – the ninety year old Krishna Sobti , for instance – returning their awards gives me a feeling that I don’t need to keep mine either. The destruction of Babri Masjid and the Gujarat genocide are not the only sores that plague this republic. In Kashmir the bullets never stop, the north-east too is an army zone with draconian AFSPA, the State is waging a war against the people in Chhattisgarh. The everyday assault on democratic rights and people’s livelihoods, the theft of their resources, the unrelenting violence on Muslims, Dalits, Christians are instances of a process by which the Republic is redefining itself. One cannot escape the realization that one is part of a nation-state that has turned against its own people, and is now rapidly moving to become a Hindutva Reich. These are not ‘aberrations’ of Indian Democracy but are being institutionalised into a vision of India supping from the chalice of majoritarian views and opinions.As a political filmmaker, I can be blamed for waking up too late to these times. Perhaps I was naïve to think that the kinds of film I make, edit, shoot, or direct and the nature of the dissenting politics I have been actively involved in are challenges enough to the nationalist consensus of this and previous Governments. This can no longer be an excuse to hold onto a recognition from the Indian state which on a daily basis makes it clear that dissenting ideas, politics, lifestyles, food choices, choices of whom to love, how to be, will have to be forcibly marshaled into a narrow mainstream. I refuse to be part of any mainstream identity. Some have told me, why give away that heavy, nice looking silvery medal. Just keep it and continue to do what you do. I am tempted, who doesn’t want to keep the bauble. But then you read that another film is being denied the permission to be screened in a festival by the ministry of Information and Broadcasting – the co-ordinating ministry for these national awards – and my acquistive temptations vanish in anger and irritation and a bit of unparliamentary swearing too. I wish to leave you with a story from the land where I live and work – The Khasi-Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya. In the Western part of these hills, there is a village of seven households called Domiasiat. Domiasiat sits atop India’s largest Uranium deposits which the Indian State covets.Kong Spelity Lyngdoh Langrin, 90 year old matriarch of Domiasiat, for many years has refused to move away from her land to allow the Indian state to mine the Uranium because she experienced the radio-active pollution created by test mining in the village. She has been offered millions in lease fees by UCIL, but she is happy in her hamlet cultivating tympew and sohmarit. I have been doing a documentary on Uranium mining issues in Meghalaya for sometime. One day when Kong Spelity was tired and complaining, I asked her why doesn’t she just give up her land and with the millions being offered to her move away to modern comforts? She looked at me and smiled, “Give up my freedom? Can money buy me the freedom which this land gives?” And Sir, I want to have my freedom back, unencumbered by any recognition from the Indian state.

The Home Ministry headed by Union Minister Amit Shah seems to be tightening the noose around NGOs registered under FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act). Vide a new notification, the Home Ministry had said that NGOs that get foreign funding need to seek approval from the government in case their key functionaries or office-bearers change.
The notification says that all NGOs that have got their registration under section 11 and 12 of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act 2010 had submitted details of the key functionaries and office-bearers at the time of applying for registration.
However, recently, several NGOs have changed their key functionaries or office-bearers after acquiring their registration without notifying and seeking approval from the government. These organisations have not updated the information on a real-time basis through an online application made for informing the government of such changes either.

The notification further states that all such organisations and NGOs that have got their registration through FCRA have to within a month seek approval from the government in case any change in the key functionaries and office-bearers have been in effect.

The NGOs that fail to comply will be liable to face penal action, as per the notification.
“All associations/persons who have granted a certificate of registration and who have affected any change/modification in the details of their officer bearers/key functionaries after their registration must inform the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) of the changes within a month failing which penal action shall be initiated,” the notification said.
This notification, however, only reiterates the rule position, reportedHindustan Times.
According to a report in the Hindustan Times, Enforcement agencies such as the Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate are probing individuals and a few NGOs that allegedly received slush funds from companies in a similar manner said a senior official who did not want to be named.
At the moment, India is a democracy which serves the interest of the wealthy. We need to transition it into a democracy which serves the interest of the people. BJP needs to remember that it was people who gave power to BJP. Wealthy elites on the other hand did everything possible to keep BJP away from the power. During the election phase, there was a hotshot industrialist who openly said that he would prefer a coalition government over BJP. He knew fully well what a disaster that would have been for the well being of the people.
How is India different from any other country on planet earth......
In India , being Indian is a heinous crime.
is this sarcasm or a statement.......
Enter 30 characteristics.
I am hoping we can make India a people's democracy even if we will be the only such country on the planet.
Those Theoretical ideas of "Absolute democracy" don't work in real world. Moreover when you bring in the concept of Rich/Poor, you are actually talking about economy not democracy. If you are saying india needs to do better at income redistribution, then answer is yes. What does democracy has to do with it?
I always believe there is a bit confusion in the minds of people about democracy/government and it's utility. there is a misunderstanding that democracy and government is there to govern our lives, government should exist to govern only specific tasks of society so that it runs smoothly.
In my opinion things like income redistribution should be handled by the society itself.
For example : say you have a 1000 crore turnover company and you have a policy that all net profits are distributed among employees based on merit. nobody is going to stop you. here government has no role to play and government should not be forcing such rules on anybody else.
Found something really interesting while observing world leaders.
Unless people are blind there is a clear pattern emerging against RW populist leaders.

Democracy is fundamentally about rights of the people and rights of the people is not decoupled from their economic condition. Therefore it is naive to think that democracy and economy are not related. There is nothing wrong with a capitalist democracy; such form of governance is fine for some countries. Whether it is practiced in an authoritarian or democratic society, issue with capitalism is that it needs poor to support rich. In a country with smaller population and powerful military, capitalism may be able to support a larger rich population by exploiting international resources. This system is not going to work for a country like India which has an extremely large population and somewhat weaker military. Even if India had a very strong military, in order to support 1B rich Indians, the entire world population has to be convinced to part with their wealth. This is simply not possible. Therefore, India's rich can only be supported by India's poor. This leaves India with an extremely large population of disenfranchised people. This is not an ideal condition for any nation. The concept of wealth redistribution is a product of capitalist thought process because in a capitalist society there have to be poor and, if there are poor, there has to be a system of wealth redistribution to prevent widespread buildup of resentment.
India is in a unique situation and therefore it warrants a unique solution. Existing models of governance such as democratic capitalism, authoritarian capitalism, secular dictatorship, religious dictatorship, etc. are not ideal for India. India needs a system which I call socialist democracy. This system is not about wealth distribution or redistribution. It is about collective management of national resources under the auspices of a very strong democratic institution. Under this system, every person will work towards a collective goal. The family you were born in will provide neither advantage nor disadvantage.
I am practical enough to know that even mere proposal of such a system will ruffle some serious feathers but for India there is no other way out.
That is the challenge of statecraft. If the world can part with their wealth to support nobodies in Europe they can very well do the same for Indians. Not to forget, Indians were highly prosperous in the past and the world was perfectly okay.
