Modi’s Face of Fascism and War Hysteria in India Must Be a Worry for the world? How Many Muslims Must be Killed for modi Election Win?

Election Vote wisely my friends.

I close my eyes when I see videos of innocent muslims and Dalits being lynched on roads and streets. Because you cannot imagine what I see from the killing of 2002 when I close my eyes everyday.

We cannot bring those who lost their lives due to hate. But all those who can see this now and all those who see this but yet choose to keep shut I despise even more.

What I want my dear friends to understand is how BJP does hate politics especially spreading Hindu Muslim hate. To date terrorizing Muslims and Dalits on grounds of cow and beef and all while continuing to export tons to foreign countries by supporting large slaughter houses running.

Myself and my friends, Muslim and others went to school on our bikes everyday. Winding streets and galis, sometimes we rode our bikes and sometimes we walked holding our bikes in the usual and daily traffic around our area just chatting. We did our daily chores and went out to do groceries at local businesses, travelled using local buses and ricksaws. Attended each others social functions.
Not a single friend, Neighbor or family will tell you that anyone of our Hindu majority neighbors ever teased any of us for being Muslims. We lived with our neighbors peacefully.

The race to power and hate politics all started from Gujarat under the BJP
State government. When Godhra happened on Feb 26th, 2002 the then BJP state government instead of finding the terrorists and putting them in jail,
Instead of shutting down the city of Godhra and taking steps that any sane and just government would do, instead created a atmosphere of Hindu Muslim hate by means of hate speeches as well as parading dead bodies of the Godhra victims in Ahemedabad to raise the Hindu sentiments in an already sensitive city and state.

Except for a few the 10,000 strong mob was made up of hired gunda’s with swords, firearms and trishuls with saffron headbands on their heads from outside. Raping, cutting men, women and children to pieces. Paid to kill Muslims. An entire establishment planned to kill innocent people of a community. Paid and planned to take revenge with innocent people who had nothing to do with Godhra.

Racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or Islamophobia, What Measures Have We taken Since August 2017

‘Racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or Islamophobia are poisoning our societies’ – UN chief

UN Photo/Mark GartenSecretary-General António Guterres speaks to journalists at a press encounter.    16 August 2017

Urging people everywhere to speak out against hate speech and hate crimes, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres today reiterated his call for tolerance, respect for the other and the importance of recognizing diversity.

“Racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or Islamophobia are, as I mentioned yesterday, poisoning our societies,” the Secretary-General told journalists today at a briefing at the UN Headquarters in New York.

“It is absolutely essential for us all to stand up against them everywhere and every time,” he added.

Addressing questions from a journalist about the situation in the US, where a weekend protest and counter-protest over the removal of a Civil War statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, sparked discussions about race, Mr. Guterres said “these demons are appearing a little bit everywhere.”

A Portuguese national, Mr. Guterres said that as a European, he is proud that Europe created the values of Enlightenment: tolerance, the respect for the other, and the importance of recognition of diversity.

“To be able to stand for these values and to… at the same time, to condemn all forms of irrationality that undermine those values is essential, at the present moment, be it in the United States or everywhere else in the world,” the head of the UN said.

One of Many Genocides, Holocaust is of Evil Proportions.

IHRA definition as adopted by the Labour Party and Some local government bodies is a political stain of another evil intent. Only this times Fascism is building up against the Muslims.

 

 

London.  Protesting Zionist Group with Israeli flags and IHRA cards Raising many questions. These racist were in small numbers but seem to be almost every where at the National Unity rally against racism and fascism.

Labour Party’s  NEC’s Monster has come alive. The Labour Party’s National Executive Committee’s  adaptation in full of the IHRA definitions which where meant to be Antisemitism guidelines only without the adaptation of any genuine working  efforts on including caveats is  dangerous, stinks of fascism and evil intent .

These racist were in small numbers but seem to be almost every where at the National Unity rally against racism and fascism. Here they are in Whitehall

 

Six people have been convicted of being members of the banned extreme right wing neo-Nazi group National Action.

West Midland Police:         Talking about today’s verdict, head of West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (WMCTU) Detective Chief Superintendent Matt Ward, said: “This result is a culmination of two years of painstaking work in the West Midlands and across the country to recognise and understand the threat of National Action.

Six people convicted for National Action membership

Six people have been convicted of being members of the banned extreme right wing neo-Nazi group National Action.

The organisation was formed in 2013 and proscribed as a banned group by the government in 2016.

A jury at Birmingham Crown Court found two men and a woman guilty today after three other men had admitted membership of the group before the trial.

Daniel Bogunovic, aged 27 of Crown Hills Rise, Leicester, Adam Thomas, aged 22, and 38-year-old Claudia Patatas − both of Waltham Gardens, Banbury, Oxfordshire − were all found guilty this morning.

Joel Wilmore, aged 24 of Bramhall Moor Lane, Stockport, Darren Fletcher, aged 28 of Kitchen Lane, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton and Nathan Pryke, aged 27 of Dartford Road, March, Cambridge, all previously admitted their membership.

They will be sentenced in due course.

All six were arrested on 3 January and charged on 8 January with being concerned in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000; namely on suspicion of being a member of a proscribed organisation (National Action) contrary to sec 11 of the Terrorism Act.

Thomas was also found guilty of possessing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism contrary to s.58 of Terrorism Act 2000 (possessing bomb making instructions).

Bogunvic was found guilty of inciting racial hatred under Sec 18 (1) of the Public Order Act 1986 after National Action branded stickers were found displayed in the grounds of the Aston University complex in July 2016.

Joel Wilmore also pleaded guilty to possessing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism contrary to s.58 of Terrorism Act 2000 (possessing bomb making instructions).

Darren Fletcher pleaded guilty to five breaches of his criminal anti-social behaviour order.

The court heard how the group used several methods to disguise their contact with each other such as using pseudonyms through closed, encrypted messaging platforms as well as regularly meeting in person to spread their ideology.

Talking about today’s verdict, head of West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (WMCTU) Detective Chief Superintendent Matt Ward, said: “This result is a culmination of two years of painstaking work in the West Midlands and across the country to recognise and understand the threat of National Action.

“These individuals were not simply racist fantasists; we now know they were a dangerous, well-structured organisation. Their aim was to spread neo-Nazi ideology by provoking a race war in the UK and they had spent years acquiring the skills to carry this out. They had researched how to make explosives. They had gathered weapons.  They had a clear structure to radicalise others. Unchecked they would have inspired violence and spread hatred and fear across the West Midlands.

“Today’s convictions have dealt a significant blow to National Action. We have dismantled their Midlands Chapter but that doesn’t mean the threat they pose will go away.

“Others on the periphery will take on leadership roles and so I ask for the public’s vigilance − if you see this group’s posters or stickers please report them to police − where there are new cells, we will intercept and prosecute them.”

Two men were convicted and sentenced earlier this year also for membership of National Action − Mikko Vehvilainen and Alex Deakin − however due to legal reasons restrictions were placed on reporting.

Vehvilainen - Deakin

Vehvilainen − a 34-year-old lance corporal in the army − was jailed for eight years in April. Born in Finland, Vehvilainen was arrested by officers from West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit (WMCTU) at his army base in Brecon, Powys in September 2017.

At an earlier hearing, Vehvilainen admitted a separate offence of being in possession of pepper spray.

Det Ch Supt Ward said: “Vehvilainen’s role typified the progress that National Action wanted; he was a non-commissioned officer in the British Army with access to young men who could be radicalised and recruited into the group. He was an incredibly dangerous individual and a key part of the National Action strategy.”

Alex Deakin (24) was also jailed for eight years for being a member of National Action, distributing extremist publications and two charges of possessing documents likely to be useful to a person preparing to commit an act of terrorism and distribution of a terrorist publication.

Matt Ward continued: “Deakin had a long history with the far right movement, he held the mantle of regional coordinator to help facilitate online communications in the group. He turned it into a well organised cell in the midlands and as a result he’s serving a long sentence.

“Today’s guilty verdicts highlight the commitment by counter terrorism policing to tackle all forms of extremist ideology.

“We have seen many convictions over the past few years in connection with Syria-related terrorism and this work continues apace. But extreme groups such as National Action also have the potential to threaten public safety and security.

“We work tirelessly to counter terrorism. Our absolute priority is to ensure the safety and security of the people who live, work and visit the West Midlands area.

“If anyone has any suspicions over an individual’s behaviour and suspects them to be involved in this type of activity, I would urge you to report it to police as soon as possible. You can report suspicions online via ACT campaign’s website or call police confidentially on 0800 789 321. In an emergency dial 999.

“Suspicious activity is anything that seems out of place, unusual or just doesn’t seem to fit in with day-to-day life – Let us decide if it is important.”

Policeman Threatening Muslim Girl with his gun. Forcing Her To Marry a Hindu

Racism is now used as terrorism. Its a tool being used by governments around the world and their security services to persecute and terrorise mostly people with Muslims origins.

“Schools and playgrounds can be dangerous places where children are isolated or bullied. Children often use differences in appearance, skin colour, food habits, misogyny, homophobia and casteism to inflict pain on their peers.

And now, according to a new book out in India, Muslim children are increasingly being targeted in posh schools for their religious identity because of the growing Islamophobia in India and across the world.

Writer Nazia Erum, who spoke to 145 families in 12 cities and 100 children studying in 25 elite Delhi schools while researching her book Mothering a Muslim, says that children as young as five are being targeted.

“What I found during my research was shocking, I didn’t think it was happening in these elite schools,” Ms Erum told the BBC. “When five and six year olds say they were called a Pakistani or a terrorist, how do you respond to that? And how do you complain to the school?” she asks.

“A lot of it is said in jest, it’s meant to be funny, to evoke a laugh. It’s subtle and it can seem like harmless banter, but it’s not. It’s actually bullying and tormenting.”

The children she interviewed for her book told her about some of the questions and comments that are regularly hurled at them:

Are you a Muslim? I hate Muslims.

Do your parents make bombs at home?

Is your father part of the Taliban?

He’s a Pakistani.

He’s a terrorist.

Don’t piss her off, she will bomb you.

Since its launch, the book has started a conversation around religious hate and prejudice in schools and last weekend, #MotheringAMuslim trended high on Twitter, with many taking to social media to share their own experiences.

Writer Nazia Erum says she was shocked to see the level of bullying of Muslim students during her research

Nearly 80% of India’s population of 1.3 billion is Hindu, while Muslims make up 14.2%.

For the most part, the two communities have lived peacefully, but religious resentment has always simmered below the surface since 1947 when India and Pakistan were carved out of a single nation. The parting was bloody – between half a million and a million people were killed in religious violence.

Ms Erum says while anti-Muslim slurs have been used since the 1990s, after the demolition of the Babri mosque by Hindu hardline groups and the Hindu-Muslim riots that followed, in recent years their tone and intensity have changed.

Girls attacked ‘for meeting Muslim boys’

She became acutely aware of it in 2014, after she gave birth to her first child.

“As I held my little daughter Myra in my arms, for the first time I was afraid,” Ms Erum said, adding that she was worried about even giving the baby a name that could be easily identified as Muslim.

It was a time of sharp religious divisions in India. The Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party was running a hugely polarising election campaign, which helped sweep Prime Minister Narendra Modi to power.

There was a rise in Hindu nationalist sentiment and some television channels were presenting a distorted narrative that painted Muslims as “invaders, anti-national and a threat to national security”.

“Since 2014, my identity as a Muslim was in my face, and all my other identities had become secondary to that. There was a sense of palpable fear among the entire community,” Ms Erum says.

And since then, the fault lines have only widened. The polarising arguments and debates on television have entrenched biases, which are now being passed around from the adults to children.

“So in playgrounds, schools, classrooms and school buses, a Muslim child is singled out, pushed into a corner, called a Pakistani, IS, Bagdadi and terrorist,” says Ms Erum.

The stories of children she cites in the book make for grim reading:

A five-year-old girl is terrified that “Muslims are coming and they will kill us”. The irony: she doesn’t know that she herself is Muslim.

A 10-year-old boy who feels shame and anger when after a terrorist attack in Europe, a classmate asks him loudly: “What have you done”?

A 17-year-old is called a terrorist and when his mother contacts the name-caller’s mother, she’s told: “But your son called my child fat”.

Being bullied on account of one’s religion in schools is not limited to India, it’s happening across the world.

In the US, it’s been described as the “Trump Effect” after reports that his presidential campaign had produced an alarming level of fear and anxiety among children of colour and inflamed racial and ethnic tensions in the classroom.

So can the increased bullying of Muslim children in Indian schools be described as the “Modi Effect”?

Ms Erum says parents and schools must do everything possible to counter communal bullying

“All politicians are using a similar tone, including those from Islamic parties,” Ms Erum says.

She adds that schools have refused to accept that religious bullying took place on their premises.

That, she says, could also be since most cases go unreported – children don’t want to be seen as tattletales and most parents dismiss them as random incidents.

But what is worrying is that a form of self-censorship has crept into their lives and many Muslim parents have begun telling their children to be on their best behaviour at all times – don’t argue, don’t be good at computer games that involve bombs or guns, don’t crack a joke at the airport, don’t wear traditional outfits when you go out.

Ms Erum says these are warning signs and parents and schools must do everything possible to counter communal bullying.

“The first step is to accept that there’s a problem, and then have a conversation about it. Whataboutery is not going to help,” she says.

“If this issue is not addressed, it’s not going to be restricted to 9pm debates in television studios or newspaper headlines, because hate swallows all, it impacts both the tormentor and the tormented equally.”

Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, headed by hardliner accused of violence against Muslims, to become Prayagraj

Guardian Report of 16 October 2018

“Hindu nationalist-led state changes Muslim name of Indian city Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, headed by hardliner accused of violence against Muslims, to become Prayagraj

Michael Safi in Delhi  @safimichael.  Tue 16 Oct 2018 12.28 BST Last modified on Tue 16 Oct 2018 15.26 BST

An Indian city in a state led by a hardline Hindu nationalist preacher accused of instigating violence against Muslims has had its Muslim name changed to one with Hindu associations.

 

The state cabinet in Uttar Pradesh announced on Tuesday that it had approved the renaming of Allahabad as Prayagraj, which harks back to the city’s ancient appellation, Prayag, before it was changed by Mughal-era rulers in the late 16th century.

Prayag in Sanskrit means place for sacrifice, in reference to the Hindu belief that the creator of the universe, Brahma, made his first offering at the area in the city where the Ganges and Yamuna rivers meet.

The Uttar Pradesh health minister, Siddharth Nath Singh, told local media: “The city used to be known as Prayagraj since the beginning. To those who are opposing the decision, how would you feel if the name your parents gave you was to be changed?”

The city, about 400 miles (650km) south-east of the Indian capital, Delhi, is the ancestral home of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, which has produced three Indian prime ministers, including the country’s first, Jawarharlal Nehru.

It is also the site of one of India’s Kumbh melas – mass Hindu pilgrimages that are considered to be among the world’s largest religious festivals. The most recent was held in the city in 2013 and attended by an estimated 100 million worshippers.

Changing Allahabad’s name has been a longstanding demand of Hindu nationalist groups in India which regard the three centuries in which huge areas of the subcontinent were ruled by Mughal dynasties as a period of foreign occupation.

The traditional view of Indian leaders has been that the Mughals integrated with the largely Hindu society around them, forging a unique blended culture over time.

In the decades since independence in 1947, the country has gradually thrown off British imperial-era names such as Bombay (now Mumbai), Pondicherry (now Puducherry) and Madras (now Chennai).

Under Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, the state has also started replacing Mughal-era names.

Last year, Mughalsarai Junction railway station in the state was renamed Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction railway station, after a Hindu nationalist thinker and politician.

The Uttar Pradesh energy minister, Shrikant Sharma, said more names were likely to be changed. “It is the right of the government to rename any city,” he said. “If needed, we will rename more cities and roads. The mistakes done earlier will be rectified.” “ Continue reading Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, headed by hardliner accused of violence against Muslims, to become Prayagraj

Another Shocking Case of Racism From a Large Retailer. Police Called on a Couple for Simply Shopping at the Store.

Why Do Retailer Advertise? Ask yourself. They Cannot Achieve Their Projected Sale Targets for the Year by Restricting Sales.

Tesco Shares price has been Slipping since the shocking incident of extremely bad and offensive handling of customers Nasir and his wife Mahira Hussain.

No Retailer Can Afford to Limit its Sales / Business. Tesco is there to make Money. Task always is sales up resulting in efforts to increase sales,  more money loads of money. More than the previous year. Tesco is no exception their share holders expect them to make more each year .

Money is the heart of the retail business More sales means bigger turn over that translates into bigger share value and they make yet again More Money. Any one suggests otherwise is talking rubbish.

 

Item are Rationed when Given Free of Charge. Or when there is Famine, Drought going on.

Other than that, Retailers often use it as a ploy, a publicity Stunt hoping people will go crazy with the hope of pulling that many more customers from other retailers to make more money.

Reality is Tesco like any other retailer is there to sell as many items as it can.  Items are there to sell whether lorry loads or singularly.

 

No Retailer Sells items at Cost Price or at reduce price . Unless in case of food items have reached end of their life. Or in case of reduced price they wish to bump up their turn over.

 

Logic of limiting sales is simply a publicity stunt. It makes no business sense. Wasting our already extremely stretched, short in number police force time and resources is very questionable, and that on a totally bad handling of a normal situation made bad by Tesco management.

 

Tesco must, not only apologise but compensate the couple Nasir and Mahira Hussain.

If customer is able to fill up ten trolleys, all it mean is its there to be sold unless clearly stated. Retailer opens their doors to sell.
