Delhi gang rape accused Ram Singh makes mockery of Tihar Jail

12 Mar

Ram Singh - Delhi accused in Delhi gang-rapeRam Singh, the prime accused in the Dec 16, 2012 Delhi gang-rape case, who was the driver of the bus in which six men committed the horrific assault on 23-year-old student Nirbhaya (not her real name), committed suicide in the wee hours on March 11,  2013 in jail number 3 of India’s most reputed and highly secured Tihar Jail. The sudden suicide of Ram Singh will surely bring a new twist in the legal hearing of the rape case as Ram Singh might have died with several key statements which could have helped the blind judicial system of India in deciding the magnitude of crime penalty for the remaining five accused.

According to the Tihar Jail authorities Ram Singh used a portion of the sleeping mat and a bucket to reach the jail grill which was about 8 feet high to hang himself to death. The funny part of the suicide was that Ram Singh was not alone in his cell, he was accompanied by three other sleeping inmates and a police guard outside his cell, ironically nobody came to know about it. Unfortunately no CCTV was installed around Ram Singh’s cell so the investigation team will now have to go by the words of inmates and sleeping officials, most likely Ram Singh’s sudden death might remain a secret forever. Ram Singh’s father, Mange Lal Singh who visited his son four days ago said his son appeared fine and gave no hints of taking his own life. Mange Lal also accused the fellow inmates and security guards of raping and threatening his son repeatedly.

The big question Indians need an answer to is how in the world there was such a big lapse in the security system of India’s most reputed Tihar jail. Is it that easy for a prisoner to commit suicide in a jail? for a moment lets imagine Ram Singh as a prime accused in some India’s major scandals such as CWG or Coalgate whose one statement could have shattered the life of many high profile ministers and bureaucrats, wouldn’t his sudden suicide in our hypothetical scenario could have saved many accused who would have raised a toast to celebrate his death. Death of Ram Singh raises serious questions on the policing system of our country. This is just one  such incident which came to limelight as the Delhi rape case went on and become a global phenomenon, God only knows how many of such deliberate incidents might have happened(or happening) across different Jails in India to save the so called netas/ministers of our country.

Now that Ram Singh is dead and his file is closed for good, he would be no more discussed in the court proceedings, but he has surely become the most discussed topic on internet. Whether he was killed or committed suicide, most probably it will forever remain an unsolved mystery. We people of India along with Nirbhay’s family would have loved to see him hanged in public, unfortunately this will never happen, and the only good thing about his death was that it has exposed the enormous security failure at one of India’s best-known prisons. Let’s wait and watch what new excuse our India government comes up with to wash this shameful black spot on the security system of our country.

What is Indian police good at?

Is Shinde fit to be the Home Minister of India?

3 Mar

Sushil Kumar Shinde - Home Minister of IndiaThe Indian democracy has given our country a lot number of elected representatives who have done nothing for the people and have simply added shame for themselves and for the country. There are many ministers who are holding important offices in the country but fail to recognize their responsibilities and duties for which they have been elected. To a larger extent we people are also responsible for electing ministers who in no way qualify for the roles, but then what can be done also, do we Indians have any choice? Do people in big cities actually go out and vote? Do people who go to polling booths have knowledge about the candidate’s background and misdeeds? Anyways that’s a different subject all together about which any of us can write forever.

We are here to discuss about Mr Sushilkumar Shinde who is currently our Home Minister, responsible for maintaining India’s internal security and our highly respected Indian police force comes under his ambit. Apart from many good qualities, a person leading India’s senior most office like Home ministry is expected to possess at least one basic quality which is “he should be aware of what he is speaking”. Looks like our current Home Minister highly lacks that quality. On March 1, 2013, Sushilkumar Shinde during his speech in Rajya Sabha unknowingly disclosed the names of three minor girls of Bhandara in Maharashtra, who were allegedly raped and murdered recently. As per law, the name and identity of victims of rape that too minors should be kept a secret as per Supreme Court guidelines. Shinde did realise his mistake but it was too late as he had already disclosed the names, this mistake can sound silly for him to be picked on, but in an environment of rapes happening all around in the country how can a home minister forget this basic thing. Clearly proves that his old age has taken the better of him or he is just like those senseless ministers who simply read out a piece of paper without actually bothering what’s in it. How can our home minister be so dumb?

There are many such incidents which raise question marks on his ability to hold an office in Indian Ministry. Here are some more of such incidents:

1. Shinde served as Power Minister of India from 2006-2012. During the 2012 northern India power grid failure(a major blackout), Shinde deflected criticism by observing that India was not alone in suffering major power outages, as the United States and Brazil had both experienced similar blackouts within the previous few years. Invariably he told the world that we are behind US and Brazil so what the heck if we have power failure.

2. In august 2012 he taunted actor-politician Jaya Bachchan by saying “This is a serious matter. This is not the subject of a film”. Clearly proves that he forms opinion about people based on their profession, he should not forget that he started his career as a constable in Maharashtra State Police, if we go by his theory of identifying people then we can very well ask him if he was made a home minister with a constable and Sub-Inspector background?

3. In September 2012 Shinde remarked, like the Bofors scam even the Coalgate Scam will be forgotten. A proof of how serious these major corruption issues matters to him.

4. In december 2012 Shinde referred Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed in Parliament using honorifics like ‘Mr’ and ‘Shri’. He said “Mr Rehman Malik, interior minister of Pakistan has been telling us repeatedly that he had arrested Mr Hafiz Saeed thrice and that on each occasion, he was let off by the courts for lack of evidence. We had been given to understand by the interior minister of Pakistan that Mr Hafiz Saeed had been arrested on the charges of being a part of the conspiracy for the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. When we pursued this matter, they have given us papers pertaining to the detentions of Shri Hafiz Saeed in 2002 and 2009″. For those who don’t know who Hafiz Saeed is, he is the mastermind behind 26/11 terrorist attack in India which took life of 168 innocent Indians. Clearly this incident shows total lack of common sense in Shinde.

5. In December 2012, Shinde gave one month deadline for Centre’ decision on Telengana but backed out as the deadline approached. A court in Andhra Pradesh even asked police to file a case against Shinde for deferring the decision of separate statehood of Telangana. Once again a proof that Shinde is definitely not a man of his words.

6. On January 20, 2013 during an All India Congress Committee(AICC) meeting in Jaipur, Shinde went a little too far while trying to impress the Congress leaders and said “Reports have come during investigation that BJP and RSS conduct terror training camps to spread terrorism. Bombs were planted in Samjhauta express, Mecca Masjid and also a blast was carried out in Malegaon. We will have to think about it seriously and will have to remain alert.” Clearly proves that Shinde can go to any level for flattering his bosses.

S.A.I vs. Hockey India – Is Hockey national sport of India?

3 Mar

Indian hockey team - sports authorities  killing Indian HockeyYou believe it or not Indian men’s hockey team is the most successful hockey team in the history of Olympics with 8 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals. On 26th February 2013, Indian hockey team was on the brink of opting out of the 22nd edition of prestigious 2013 Sultan Azlan Shah Cup to be held in Malaysia from March 9 to March 17. The Sultan Azlan Shah Cup is an annual hockey category A tournament, named after the ninth King of Malaysia Sultan Azlan Shah who is an avid fan of hockey. India has won the Azlan Shah Cup five times (1985, 1991, 1995, 2009, 2010) and were the bronze medallist in the 2012 edition of tournament.

The shameful situation aroused when Sports Authority of India (SAI) refused to bear the travel expenditure of the national team players scheduled to travel to Malaysia for the tournament. SAI who had initially given Indian hockey team, the go-ahead to hold the national camp for the tournament refused to bear the to and fro airfares stating that they have exceeded the budget. As the Indian players prepared for their travel to Malaysia, an eleventh hour letter was received by Hockey India(HI) on February 26, 2013 from the Sports Authority of India (SAI) which said the government will not bear any cost for the tournament. The Hockey India immediately reacted to SAI’s letter by announcing its decision to pull out of the Azlan Shah tournament.

HI officials alleged that SAI’s letter was a reaction to the police complaint made by HI officials against the security in-charge of Delhi’s Major Dhyan Chand Stadium on February 24, 2013. The security in-charge of Dhayan Chand Stadium, Sanhsar Pawar was detained at the Tilak Marg police station after HI filed an FIR against him. According to HI, Pawar is a serial offender and always drunk during duty hours, he created a big scene by abusing many top officials of HI in inebriated state and refused to allow heavy vehicles carrying equipment used during the Hockey World League to leave the stadium premises without bribing him money or alcohol. However SAI completely denies this allegation, sports ministry secretary PK Deb said “We have an annual budget of Rs.5.94 crore for Hockey India but they crossed it. We have already spent Rs.11.27 crore. This is why SAI didn’t clear the case and forwarded it to us,”

Thanks to God that the matter was settled immediately with sports ministry now ready to pay 49 per cent towards air fare and rest to be borne by HI. The question to be asked here, is Hockey in India at all treated the way it should be, considering the fact that it’s also the national sport of India? Why either SAI or HI did not gave priority to India’s national sport? Why was their fight or the ego clash given more preference than the team India? Who has given rights to SAI for letting India down by not allowing our country to participate in category A tournament? Considering the fact the most of the expense except the travel cost was to be supported by Malaysia, is Hockey India by itself, which has just earned milliions from sponsors and recently concluded cash rich Hockey India League, not capable enough to sponsor the travel cost of Indian players? Hockey India wasted no time in announcing its verdict to pull out of the Azlan Shah tournament immediately after receiving a letter from SAI. If this is the way sports authorities take decisions for Indian hockey, then surely our national sport is in wrong hands and very much responsible for dismal performance of our team in recent past.

Are Indian sports authorities responsible for decline of Indian Hockey?

Mulayam for Prime Ministership in 2014: Good for India?

28 Feb

Mulayam Singh Yadav of Samajwadi Party - Prime Minister 2014?A lot was written about Mulayam Singh Yadav in Media, projecting him as the next prime minister, after his Smajwadi Party came in power with majority in UP in 2012, beyond all speculation he appointed his son as the chief minister of the state and himself decided to concentrate on the central politics in Delhi, probably eyeing the prime ministership in 2014. The prime question we Indians have on our minds, is Mulayam and his party people eligible to rule Delhi? Is Samajwadi party eligible to take India to the next level of progress and make our country corruption free? If we go by the events and incidents happening in UP since Smajwadi party came into power, it looks like Samajwadi party is one which totally believes in muscle power. Party ministers seem to be short tempered, not highly educated and just about ready to throw there punches around everyone.

Here is an incident which added yet more shame to the Samajwadi ruling party in UP and displayed the kind of arrogance the party ministers carry all along. A group of primary school teachers were manhandled and even slapped by a Samajwadi party MLA Bhagwan Sharma alias Guddu Pandit when they went to his residence on February 25, 2013 to hand over a memorandum addressed to the UP Chief Minister. A group of teachers had gone to Sharma’s residence to hand over a memorandum urging Akhilesh Yadav to reconsider the recent directive to primary teachers asking to keep their cell phones available at a particular hour in the morning for verification of their attendance.

Here is the whole incident caught on tape:

This is not the first time and probably not the last time Samajwadi ministers have displayed their muscle power openly in public, there have been many such incidents which have made us believe that Samajwadi Party is a group of people who in arrogance of power fail to understand their obligations towards citizens of India. Even the kind of statement the SP party ministers make in public are quite outrageous and speaks volumes about their incapability, Azam Khan who is one of the senior leaders of the party and was a prime candidate for the chief minister post once said he would have lead the mob to demolish Taj Mahal. Such incidents reflect a lot about the party and the kind of goons who have been give Samajwadi party’s election tickets. This definitely raises a big question mark on the Prime ministership of Mulaym Singh Yadav? If he becomes the supremo of our nation, one can imagine the kind of people who will take up offices and departments in the Indian ministry. If Mulayam really wants to become the PM of our country he has to first clean his very own party which seems to be not at all fit for handling critical positions in Indian Government. Till then all we can do is pray and hope the leadership of our country goes into the right and most deserving hands. The sad part of our democracy is that the central leadership is decided by the numbers game and no one really cares about the education level or the criminal background of ministers who take up office.

Do you accept Mulayam Singh Yadav as India's next Prime Minister?

Live-in relationship: Is Bollywood crossing the line?

27 Feb

Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu moving in togetherIn a recent interview Soha Ali Khan, daughter of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore revealed in an interview that she and her boyfriend Kunal Kemmu have bought a place together in Khar, Mumbai and will be shortly moving into their new home. Sounds like Bollywood’s yet another live-in relationship in the air. Not so long ago, the Bollywood stars would go to great lengths to hide their relationship status for fear of losing their fan following, not anymore, the times have changed, with the new generation of Indians closely following the Hollywood celebrities lifestyle, our Bollywood celebs are now getting more open about their live-in relationship.

With Indian celebrities marketing the word ‘Live-in’ relationships, the question to be asked, is India ready for such relationships? Is it something which can be followed by common people of India? Well the answer is a big no? In a country where almost everywhere a woman doesn’t feel safe travelling alone after 7′o clock in the night, how can a live-in relationship be justified? A country where the cops and ministers themselves are the rapist, how can a girl live alone with a guy before marriage? The argument seems baseless as some might ask how live-in relation gets affected by cops or ministers. It’s very simple, in our Indian society the fact is that the women are still being treated as objects, and it’s quite visible, just step out of your house and you can see thousands of hungry eyes staring women like they have never seen one. A woman in India has to think twice about what to wear before she steps out of the house, just to avoid the unnecessary glares and stares. The truth of the matter is that we have opened thousands of American restaurants and pubs across the country, we have started using the imported commodities, but the mind-set of an average Indian still remains the same. It’s like hardware has been upgraded but the underlying software is still the same.

So in a society which lacks the basic respect for women, how can we expect someone to respect a woman in a live-in relationship? Just imagine a girl living alone with a guy and if something goes wrong and the girls goes to a police station, we bet instead of supporting the girl the cops along with the media will try to find some fault with the girl as she was in a live-in relationship.

So why is Bollywood promoting the concept of live-in relationship? Why don’t they keep it with themselves, if they want to live with someone? The statement like of Soha Ali Khan’s openly announcing her moving in plans with Kunal Kemmu is definitely against our Indian society as it might encourage innocent guys and gals to follow their footsteps. We Indians have to understand the kind of people and culture we are surrounded by, as they say be a Roman in Rome, so be an Indian in India. We are not living in the US or UK where irrespective of the gender the kids move on with their individual life after they turn 16. In India a lonely woman is very vulnerable, be it the people in society or the Indian cops or Indian ministers, everyone in India tries to take undue advantage of a lonely woman, accept it or not it’s a fact. So it’s a request to all the Bollywood celebs that please do not announce your live-in plans with your partners out in public as you unknowingly might destroy life of a girl or boy. The Indian media should also understand its responsibility by not highlighting the live-in relationships of celebrities to such an extent.

Do you endorse the concept of 'Live-in' relationships in India?

Suryanelli rape case: 111 people booked for sharing comments on Facebook

27 Feb

Bindu Krishna-PJ Kurien-K SudhakaranIn yet another sad incident of so called moral policing, the Kerala police have registered a case under IT Act on a complaint that ‘abusive’ comments have been posted on Facebook against the state Mahila Congress chief  Bindu Krishna for backing Rajya Sabha deputy chairman P.J .Kurien in the Suryanelli rape case. Bindu Krishna filed a complaint saying that abusive comments, along with her picture, had been posted on Facebook after which a case under Section 66A of the Information and Technology Act had been imposed on Facebook users.

Police has filed a case against a man who posted a defamatory comment and the others for sharing the post. Around 120 persons were interrogated by police in Thiruvananthapuram and surrounding areas for posting obscene posts against Bindu Krishna on Facebook. So far Kerala police have booked a case against 111 people for posting derogatory remarks on Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien, the accused in the Suryanelli rape case.

Just a few days ago on February 16, 2013, K Sudhakaran a Lok Sabha Congress MP from Kannur, Kerala made dirty comments about the girl victim of the Suryanelli rape case. During a press conference in Muscat K Sudhakaran said the Suryanelli rape case victim who was allegedly raped by 42 men over 40 days in 1996, when she was 16 had carried out “outright prostitution”. Bindu Krishna reacted to the statement by saying “He should withdraw his statement and tender an apology”. K Sudhakaran apologizes for his comments and easily got away with the bold statement of referring a rape victim as a prostitute, whereas the common people of India are facing the sword of politician made law just for sharing and commenting on this whole issue.

Why in the world K Sudhakaran was let away for passing bad comments about a rape victim and the common people of India are being punished? The Kerala Government said they do not agree with Sudhakaran’s view, but could not take legal steps as he made the statement in Muscat. What a reason for not booking a minister! If government thinks people have committed a crime so has K Sudhakaran. Isn’t the law equal for everyone? The way things are going in our country, very soon there will separate jails built for Facebook users who comment or share anything against the government. One thing these politicians need to understand is that they should know how to handle criticism by common people of India, if the police of our country go with the politicians complaints of defamatory remarks, the day will not be far when whole of the country will be booked for sharing some kind of comments against some politician.

If these politicians are really true then why shall they worry about the comments, in fact they create more shame for themselves by using the IT act against the people of India. Let’s hope that coming years will give enough common sense to our so called leaders on how to face criticism on Facebook, Twitter and other social media properties on internet. The internet users in India are growing every second and their freedom of speech just can’t be killed by the hands of these politicians who are elected only by the people of India.

Do you agree with Government's decision of booking 111 Facebook users?

Indian Army Colonel smuggling drugs worth Rs 20 crore

25 Feb

Colonel Ajay Choudhury arrested for smuggling drugs in ManipurAfter the tainted Politicians, Indian bureaucrats involved in the recent chopper deal scandal, now it’s the Indian army personnel adding more shame to the defense ministry. So far many of us in India were/are living in a belief that Indian army is a group of true civilians who at any cost will never let the country down, please correct yourself if you are the one living under such an high belief for our Indian Army because it looks like the Indian army’s obsession to serve mother India is no more the case now and greed for money has been injected into our country’s prestigious army troops as well.

In one of the biggest drug hauls in the State of Manipur, Colonel Ajay Choudhury a Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Press Information Bureau (Defense Wing), was caught along with five persons by Manipur police Commandos while trying to smuggle illicit drugs (pseudoephedrine tablets) worth Rs 20 crores into Myanmar through the border town Moreh. This is third time in less than two months that Manipur police have seized large consignment of drugs in the State.

The commando team arrested six persons who were in the three vehicles. The first vehicle was a Bolero from which they arrested Colonel Ajay Chowdhary,49 years, of Bihar infantry posted at M sector Imphal as a Public relation officer(Ministry of Defence) along with his companion who is also the Assistant manager of Indigo Airlines in Manipur and an Indigo security staff officer identified as Ngairangbam Brojendro, 40 years. They were driving with three carton boxes, one suit case, six gunny bags and one big carry bag containing illegal tablets. Second vehicle was again a Bolero from which they arrested Haupu Haokip, 28 years, along with another occupant identified as Minthang  Doungel, 29 years. Their vehicle had two big size airbags, five carton boxes and one gunny bag containing tablets. The third vehicle was a Tata Safari and was driven by Minlin Haokip, 25 years, and another occupant in the front seat said to be an army personal of 165 Infantry Battalion posted in Assam. They were caught with eight big size gunny bags, one carton box and five airbags.

When questioned about the seizure, Colonel Ajay Choudhury reportedly told police that he was not aware of the goods and thought they were the personnel goods of his travelling colleagues. Later it was also found that the vehicles used by the PRO defence was bearing double registration number plates: one, with a  fake number above the original number plate bearing MN04A / 6968, with the fake number MN04 / 8390 stuck above.

Ajay Chaudhary said he was “cheated” by “nephew of a very senior officer” into accompanying him. He said “Yesterday, the nephew of a very senior officer whom I know had come to me. I have met him two or three times at his place. He said he had come to trade in Moreh and a few people harassed him enroute to Moreh, I asked him what it was, he said nothing just a few things that I deal with. There will be a few packages I would be taking in my car. So you don’t have to worry. So I said OK…,” Chaudhary also asked his friend from IndiGo Airlines who agreed to join him so that they could do some shopping in Moreh.

Now if all the story which Mr. Ajay Chaudhary is narrating for his innocence, why in the world he had a fake number on his vehicle? According to some news agencies, PRO Ajay Chowdhary had confessed and revealed that it is not the first time that he had carried drug consignments to the border town of Moreh and that he had already made five to six trips for which he gets Rs 6 lakhs per trip.

When Indian cops turn rapist

25 Feb

Indian cops protecting women - Image by lankaviews.comHere is an incident which further taints the image of our Indian police and their commitment towards prevention of crime against women in India. In Aldur, a village in Chikmagalur district of Karnataka, the Aldur police on February 16, 2013 arrested a woman in connection with a chain-snatching that took place in 2011. The women used to rob gold ornaments and sell them through an accomplice in Bangalore. Five policemen, including Sub Inspector (SI), a female assistant SI and three constables which included a female constable of the Aldur police station brought the women to Bangalore to recover items she was accused of having stolen and also to arrest a co-accused.

The male police staff was lodged in a room, while the accused and the two policewomen were lodged separately in another room. According to the complaint filed by the woman, the SI summoned her to his room and raped her. Later, two police constables also raped her. She said “We stayed at a lodge in Bangalore. The SI and two constables raped me and threatened me not to reveal the incident to others. The woman constable did not come to my rescue”.  She further added “They threatened to rape my 12-year-old daughter if I informed the judge about the incident. Though the judge asked me if I was harassed by the police, I could not say anything”.

The woman victim met the Chikmagalur Superintendent of Police N. Shashi Kumar and lodged a written complaint against the SI and the two constables. Pratap Reddy, Inspector-General of Police (Western Range), has suspended five police personnel, attached to Aldur police station, in connection with the alleged rape of a woman detained in a theft case. Those suspended are police sub-inspector K.R. Shivakumar, assistant sub-inspector Nandini Shetti, and constables Gururaj, K.B. Mahesh and Kruthika. The woman victim and the SI Shivakumar have undergone a medical test while the two constables Mahesh and Gururaj are said to be absconding. The IG, Mr. Pratap reddy said “we will take action based on the medical report and the report from the Forensic Science Laboratory”. It’s a shame that our Indian police even after the horrifying incident of Delhi gang rape case hasn’t learnt to respect women of our country.

Are Indian cops serious about protecting Women?

Markandey Katju: A former Supreme Court judge with short temper

22 Feb

Markandey Katju loosing his temper in an inteviewMarkandey Katju is the Chairman of Press Council of India and a former judge of the Supreme Court of India. The Press Council of India is one of the most important statutory bodies in India that governs the conduct of the print media. Katju recently wrote an article in a national daily against the Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi. Katju in his article said “The truth today is that Muslims in Gujarat are terrorized and afraid that if they speak out against the horrors of 2002 they may be attacked and victimized. In the whole of India, Muslims (who are over 200 million of the people of India) are solidly against Modi (though there are a handful of Muslims who for some reason disagree.” Katju further wrote: “It is said by his supporters that Modi has no hand in the killings of Muslims in 2002 and it is also said that he had not been found guilty by any court of law. I do not want to comment on our judiciary but I certainly do not buy the story that Modi had no hand in the events of 2002. He was the chief minister of Gujarat at that time, and the horrible events happened on a large scale in Gujarat. Can it be believed that he had no hand in the events of 2002? At least I find it impossible to believe it.”

Markandey Katju cartoonBefore we start bashing Katju for his remarks let us make it clear that klpdindia.com is not a supporter of BJP or Congress or any political parties in India. We found Katju’s remarks on Modi too provocative to an extent that could disturb the communal harmony of our country. What in the world motivated Katju to comment on an even that happened twelve years ago, why was he silent so far? Is it because media is giving enough footage to Modi as a prime minister candidate for 2014? It really makes no sense for a chairman of press council of India speaking against any individual or a political party. His statement clearly divides our nation; it provokes our Muslim brothers to form a wrong opinion about a chief minister who has so far done fairly well for his state as compared to the others. The 2002 incident of Gujarat was a shameful event which was carried by the religious-goons or the anti-social elements of our society who in the name of religion can go to any extent.

Katju was also the former judge of Supreme Court, being retired from such a prestigious post; one would expect him to be more sensible towards sensitive cases like Gujrat-2002 case. Another wild nature of Katju came into limelight during his interview with a news channel India news. The interview proves his impatient nature and his tolerance level, with this kind of volatile nature one wonder what kind of judgments he might have passed during his tenure as the Supreme Court judge.

Here is Katju’s interview:

In December 2012, Katju in one of his remarks said ’90 per cent of Indians are fools’ but later on clarified by saying that it was meant to awaken people to the realities of social evils like casteism, communalism in the country. May God help India from people like Markandey Katju.

Did Katju deserved to be a Supreme Court judge?

K Sudhakaran: Another shameful minister

19 Feb

K Sudhakaran a congress MP on Suryanelli rape caseIn India a minister can easily get away from anything, be it a rape or bribe or some act of corruption. Now a whole new trend has started by these ministers who on public forums speak unethical and irresponsible things. Somebody has to tell these ministers that they need to watch their words spoken in public, because it not only creates shame for them but also creates humiliation for the country. In yet another incident the Lok Sabha Congress MP from Kannur, K Sudhakaran made dirty comments about the girl victim of the Suryanelli rape case.

Reade more about the Suryanelli case

K Sudhakaran, during a media interaction in Muscat made comments on the victim of Suryanelli and referred her as a prostitute.  He said “Those who knew the history of the girl would understand the fact. She had several occasions to escape from the torture, but she stayed at the place of rape. What the former high court judge R Basant stated about her was true. He is an upright and bold judge. What he stated was based on the evidence. The girl had little self-respect to tell her story before the media. It is a big question whether Kerala’s conscious can accommodate this practice of making people fool”.

Sudhakaran’s statement came in support for his fellow congress man PJ Kurien who is facing serious charges in the Suryanelli rape case. It’s really hard to understand the civic sense of the Indian ministers, their level of education and the sick mentality which they display every now and then while addressing the media. Let’s assume for a moment that the girl is a prostitute, does that gives any minister like Sudhakaran to speak ill and use indecent words for the girl in public. Clearly this reflects the kind of respect these ministers have for the women in our country, the sad part is, we the people of India or the Indian judicial system can do nothing about such kind of statements made in public, especially when it comes from the mouth of powerful Indian politicians. These ministers should display at least some kind of maturity and social responsibility towards the citizens of India. It’s really sad to see such kind of people with sick mind-set sitting in our parliament and framing new laws for our country. One only wonders what kind of contribution these types of sick ministers bring to the table of parliament?

Should K Sudhakaran be immediately kicked out of Parliament?
