Some of the children got hurt, yet the police was a silent spectator”, Testimony of a woman in Trilokpuri
In the past one week, we have witnessed yet another well-orchestrated campaign of hate and communal rumour mongering, right here in Delhi, leading to large-scale violence. Altercations and brawls between individuals and communities are common, and what …

Pura Killing and Forced Mass Exodus: Continuing Dalit Atrocities in Bihar

The Chief Minister of Bihar, Jeetan Ram Majhi, recently expressed his shock that a temple he had visited in Madhubani had been washed after the visit, presumably to ‘purify’ it after the polluting presence of the CM who is from the most oppressed mahadalit caste. If indeed the temple was washed with such a purpose, it is a highly condemnable and demeaning atrocity against Dalits, and a case must be filed against the temple authorities under the Prevention of Atrocities Act. Some of the CM’s own fellow Ministers have suggested …

Who Is Afraid of Love?  Communal, Patriarchal Bogey of ‘Love Jihad’

“The black haired Jewish youth lies for hours in ambush, a satanic joy in his face, for the unsuspecting girl whom he pollutes with his blood and steals from her own race.By every means, he seeks to wreck the racial bases of the nation he intends to subdue. Just as individually he deliberately befouls women and girls, so he never shrinks from breaking the barriers race has erected against foreign elements. It was, and is, the Jew who brought Negroes to the Rhine, brought them with the same aim and …

Modifesto: A Close Look

Interestingly, even as the first votes are going to be cast in next couple of days, BJP, which ‘officially’ declared its PM candidate almost a year back, could not manage time yet to release its ‘manifesto’. All we have is a daily stream of live telecasts, almost round the clock, of vituperative rally addresses by Modi! One single Manifesto substituted by a daily Modifesto.
The most unprecedented phenomenon of the 2014 elections has been the NaMo PR exercise. It has been running for years now- powered by hired desi-videshi PR agencies …

Normalising the Corporate-Communal Idiom:  Can the Mainstream Media Any Longer Claim to Call  Itself a ‘Pillar of Democracy’?

Media-manufactured-Modi-mania (M4) continues to be the most unique feature of the Elections 2014. On economic and human rights issues, big corporate media have always sided with the corporate ideology and blacked-out people’s voices. However, for ruling class mainstream political parties and views, it maintained, so far, a degree of ‘plurality’ and ‘balance’. What is new this time is media’s open propaganda for one political personality, throwing to winds all pretensions of political ‘plurality’ that media in ‘liberal’ capitalist ‘democracy’ claim to represent.
The government controlled media in earlier years, indeed, lacked …
