Communal Hatred: the Mahapanchayat Way  A Report From Bawana, Delhi

Just as individually he deliberately befouls women and girls, so he never shrinks from breaking the barriers race has erected against foreign elements.

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’.

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 …

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 …
