Popular Front of India given free hand in Mumbai

Popular Front of India, a radical Islamic political organization with a long and controversial history from across India has been given a free hand by some municipal corporations especially BMC and Pune Municipality for handling dead bodies of Muslims during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

It is apparent that this is not a passing case of a faux pas by some junior government official but a deliberate, continuing, policy of the governments. Neither has the governments offered an official notification in this regard nor has it denied the policy.

This policy has proceeded without any change in spite of continued protests from opposition and civil society.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and Pune municipality have for close to four months actively involved the PFI in funeral rites off the Muslims who passed away from COVID-19. The district administration has specifically invited this group and has passed orders instructing the health department to contact this organization.

PFI is a controversial Muslim organization with much controversy in its history. Of late, it has come under investigation for involvement either direct or indirect in the recent Delhi riots.

In March, 2020, a Delhi court sent Popular Front of India (PFI) Delhi Chief Parvez Ahmed and Secretary Mohammad Iliyas to 7-day custody of the Special Cell of Delhi Police for their alleged role in instigating the people during the Delhi riots.

Two of its members of this radical Islamist organisation were also among 10 Keralites who joined the Islamic State (IS) in 2018.

The following reports maybe considered that list PFI involvement in last rites of Muslims:

  • April – 12 – 2020  – The district administration in Mumbai had conducted the training session for 35 to 40 PFI members at wanowrie ward office and gave directions to follow the protocol regarding burial of patients who have died due to COVID-19.
  • June – 2 – 2020 – Ex CM of Maharashtra Fadnavis had posted a notice issued by the Public Health Department on May 18 wherein it had directed all hospital in-charges to contact the local police, local medical officers and four coordinators of PFI in case of the death of a Muslim coronavirus patient.
  • June 4 2020  – PFI issues statement defending its role in the burials.
  • July 7 2020  – PFI training workers in Mangaluru for burying Muslims who passed away from corona.
  • July 17 2020  – PFI workers involved in burying the dead in Chamrajnagar – Karnataka.

This maybe contrasted with the cruel denial of access to the dead among the Hindus and Christians and finally who will survey the number of families whose members died due to Covid and the bodies handled by PFI members.

Crackdown against black-marketing of oxygen cylinders scam across Telangana during Covid-19

A Case of Oxygen Cylinders

A crackdown against hoarding and black-marketing of oxygen cylinders across Telangana has created some unintended hurdles for non-governmental organizations, especially in the old city of Hyderabad, who arranged oxygen cylinders at no cost to persons suspected or confirmed of COVID-19.

On July 10, Telangana chief secretary Somesh Kumar had ordered joint teams comprising officers from Drug Control Administration, Task Force of Hyderabad city police, Director of Public Health and Deputy Chief Controller of Explosives to inspect hospitals and dealers to assess whether sale and utilization of oxygen cylinders have conformed with the guidelines.

Telangana NGOs forced to stop supply of free oxygen cylinders amid crackdown against hoarding.

Social organisations say they have now stopped distribution of oxygen cylinders and this has led to several patients suffering.  Thirteen distributors, a manufacturer and an NGO, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, were warned against hoarding of oxygen cylinders while the Hyderabad police arrested a man for illegal possession of the medical devices.

Earlier, on news dated on JULY 05, 2020 in The Hindu, the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s city unit has started a free oxygen cylinder service, and later after crackdown it was an Oxygen Cylinder scam.

Masjid E Tawheed (AHLE HADEES) from Qutub Shahi, Hyderabad showcased as offering free O2 cylinders

July 16 2020 – Free oxygen cylinders with deposits in Bengaluru

Some NGOs like Naasih Educational Trust & Jamiat Ulama Karnataka, Mercy Mission, Al Hafeez Tours and Travels in Bengaluru started providing free Oxygen Cylinders for varying deposits ranging anywhere between Rs. 5000 to 10,000.

A strategy to digest Hindu Smashana Bhoomi?

The Covid-19 pandemic is being used by land grabbers occasionally to occupy Muslim grave yards. But also to force Hindu grave yards to concede space for the Muslim dead. This is a land grab through the back door.

Image is an example of Hindu smashana vatika and the final rites performed

On May 27, 2020, the Muslim man who was denied the burial space by mutawallis was laid to rest in the Hindu graveyard in Hyderabad. Two Hindu men — Sandeep and Sekhar extended help to the deceased family and arranged a place to bury the man in Hindu graveyard.

  1. June 1 2020 – Muslim community is divided about allowing burial of dead bodies of Muslims in Muslim grave yards. In the meanwhile, land belonging to grave yards are being rapidly occupied by land grabbers in the constituencies of the champions of Muslim rights and identity.
  2. June 2 2020 – Muslim graveyards deny burial space for a Muslim. Hindu grave yard offers space.

While most of the major cities across the globe viz., New York, London, Los Angeles and other various cities are cremating the COVID-19 dead bodies, why the Muslims in India are burying the dead.

Even the Hindus and most of the Christians across India are also doing cremation, Muslims are only burying them.

Due to shortage of Muslim burial grounds, the Muslim authorities and Muslims are secularising the concept in burial grounds.

  • Why some Mohammedian dead bodies were buried in Hindu Smashana Vatika’s in the name of humanity?
  • How many Hindu Smashana Vatika’s have been encroached in cities by religious minorities. (In Delhi it seems there is no space)
  • These two aspects imply the fact that there is real estate cost involved in burying in local Christian / Muslim burial grounds & the target is Hindu Smashana vatika’s.
  • Statistics say that Hindu Smashana vatika lands are converted to Real estate layouts.

Will this lead to takeover of Hindu Smashana Vatikas??

The real Chinese map – NewsX shows a mirror to China

NewsX, a leading Indian news channel has released the real Chinese map which shows the original area of China and the territories and lands which it has illegally occupied and now claimed as its own. The map being shared widely on social media #RealMapOfChina was trending on Twitter.

The map released by NewsX shows ‘China Proper’, the area which is traditionally China and without the regions it has occupied. The other areas shown in the map are Chinese Occupied Tibet (COT), Chinese Occupied East Turkestan (COET), Chinese Occupied South Mongolia (COSM), Chinese Occupied Manchuria (COM), Chinese Occupied Yunnan (COY), Chinese Occupied Macau (COMa), Chinese Occupied Hong Kong (COHK), Taiwan, and Chinese claimed parcels and spartleys.

The map also depicts the McMahon line and occupied areas of Bharat. Chinese Occupied Ladakh (COL), Chinese Occupied Shaksgam (COS) and Chinese Occupied Pamir Valley (COPV) are the areas belonging to India shown in the map. NewsX has requested cartographers to use the map in place of the one shared by China.

Some researchers opine that the Han ruled China is even smaller if the old regions of Goetsu, Hokkien and Cantonia (renamed as Guangdong by China) are not considered as they were not part of traditional China. There have been several freedom movements in China from citizens of these regions which have been occupied by China during the last century.

Among these freedom movements, the Tibetan independence movement, Manchuria independence movement, Shanghai independence movement, Cantonia independence movement are the prominent ones. China has crushed all these movement with brutal force, torture, extra-judicial killings and concentration camps.

RAVANA – A Serial Rapist and Tormentor of the Helpless

  • By Dr Rahul A. Shastri

Who was Ravana?

Ravana’s birth-name was Dashanana. His father was Vishravas s/o brahmin sage Pulastya, who is believed to hail from village Bisrakh in Haryana. His mother was Kaikesi, daughter of the Rakshasa King – Sumali. Ravana married Mandodari, the daughter of the divine architect Maya. 

Thus, contrary to what the leftists tell their confused followers, Ravana was neither Dravidian nor a sudra nor oppressed. He was a North Indian brahmin, very well connected and belonged to the royalty. 

What did Ravana do?

Ravana did tapas and got a boon from Brahma that none but humans could kill him. Empowered by this boon, he took away Lanka and Pushpaka Vimana from his cousin Kubera, conquered many regions with the help of his family and even subjugated the devas. 

Marching north he reached Kailasa and threatened Nandi that he would throw Kailasa away with Siva. To carry out this threat he put his hands under the mountain, but Siva put his toe down, trapping Ravana’s hands under the Kailasa. His fingers painfully caught, Dashanana then sang songs praising Siva so loudly, that Siva gave him the name Ravana (which means crying or roaring) and the sword Chandrahasa.

Puffed up by his success, powers and boons, Ravana turned into a bully, serial rapist and eve- teaser, misbehaving even with gods and rishis, earning eighteen curses in the process. It is because of these curses, that some of his atrocities are still known and remembered.

The many rapes by Ravana

When Ravana molested Vedavati who was engaged in penance to obtain Madhava as husband, she cursed that he and his family would be ruined by Lord Narayana on her account. Since he no longer feared gods because of the boon from Brahma, Ravana went on with his depredations. He raped Madanamanjari, wife of Rtuvarman, a tapasvi of Marutta forest, who cursed then that Ravana would be killed by a man.

Finally, he raped his own would-be daughter-in-law, Rambha, betrothed to be wife of his nephew ‘Nalakubara’ s/o Kubera. Furious at this, Nalakubara pronounced this curse

“You, who have become blind with lust, shall not touch a woman who does not reciprocate your love. If you do so your head will be split into seven pieces.”

It is this curse that later kept Sitadevi and many other chaste women safe from Ravana’s depredations, although they still were victim to molestation and insults by him. After this curse, Ravana resorted molestations, humiliation and abductions to cater to his lust, but never committed a rape again.

Rape, Rakshasas and Human Civilization

Rape is a part of Rakshasa culture, and ‘marriage by rape’ is known as ‘rakshasa vivaha’ to the Hindus. Ramayana, which is a story of the destruction of Ravana, is an eternal reminder that rape can have no place in human culture, and that the culture of rapists is bound to be destroyed by divine forces.

Molestations of women by Ravana

Ravana tried to humiliate Punjikadevi, the daughter of Brahma, who reiterated the curse of Nalakubara that he would die with all his ten heads broken if he touched unwilling women. By way of revenge, Ravana took to molesting and misbehaving with women in the presence of their helpless relatives. He humiliated Svahadevi, in the presence of Agni, earning Agni’s curse. When he molested Dvaipayana’s sister in the presence of Dvaipayana, the latter cursed him with humiliation by monkeys. Similar curses were pronounced when he molested Atri’s wife in his presence, and he misbehaved with and humiliated brahmin girls who were bathing in the sea, in the very presence of their mothers.

Once Ravana tried to catch Sulekhadevi, the daughter of Brihaspati after conquering Devaloka. Then Brhaspati cursed that Ravana would die hit by the arrows of Rama.

Some other atrocities of Ravana

Ravana committed innumerable atrocities, some of which are remembered only because of the curses that they fetched him.

He kicked Astavakra, the sage with eight hunches, saying ‘Oh ! handsome fellow ! I shall cure your eight hunches”. This earned him the curse of the sage: “For kicking me, a poor innocent sage, you will be kicked from head to foot and foot to head by monkeys.”

Knowing his perverse proclivities, Vasistha turned down his invitation to teach him Vedas. Owing to this, Vasishsta was imprisoned until the solar King Kuvalayasva rescued him. Vasishta then predicted that Ravana and his family would be destroyed by those born in the solar dynasty.

When Narada refused to explain the meaning of ‘Om’ to him, he threatened to cut off Sri Narada’s tongue, earning the curse, that all his ten heads would be cut off by a man.

Maharsi Maudgalya was once doing the svastika asana, resting his neck on the yogadanda. Seeing him thus, Ravana cut the yogadanda into two with chandrahasa sword. The rishi fell and broke his backbone. This earned Ravana the curse that the chandrahasa (given to him by Siva) would become ineffective.

Once Ravana invited a Vedic brahmin to install the idol of Tripurasundari given to him by Siva. For being late, the brahmin was imprisoned for seven days. This earned him the curse that he would be imprisoned for seven months by a man.

King Anaranya of the solar dynasty sought shelter with him. In our culture, one who takes refuge with us is protected, but Ravana killed Anaranya with a blow on the chest. The dying king cursed him that he would die from the arrows of a prince of the solar dynasty.

Sage Dattatreya had collected water which he consecrated with mantras, in order to bathe the head of his Guru. When Ravana saw this water, he poured it on his own head. Dattatreya cursed him that his head would be polluted by the feet of monkeys.

Conclusion

It can be seen from the above that Ravana was not an admirable character, in spite of his boons, lineage, royal power and worldly success. He was a serial rapist and tormentor of the weak.  Leftists are promoting the worship of such a person by deceiving the Indian masses. Their real aim is to foster divisions among us, to degrade our values and destroy our culture. Why are they doing this? 

Leftists promote divisions because according to their ideology, progress comes only by conflict and not through unity.  To promote conflict, they attack our culture and our values. Why? 

They know that the unity of Indian people comes from our culture and values. It is our culture which teaches us patience in difficulty, compassion for suffering, respect for learning, reverence for elders and traditions, and love for the motherland. These are the values that have held us together for millennia and which we uphold today. To destroy them, to fan the flames of discontent and discord among us, leftists attack our culture. 

Their deceptions about Ravana are part of this greater game plan. May their confused followers know the true nature of Ravana, see through their game plan, and strengthen national unity and the motherland.
