Rape of Minors and official + religious sanction?

Two minor girls are kidnapped in Pakistan aged 12 and 10. They are Christians. The kidnappers convert them to Islam forcibly and "marry" them (euphemism for rape). The Muzaffargarh District Court holds the marriage and conversion valid .... and, this is amazing.. that their father no longer has jurisdiction over them!! What is this? And more importantly, what law are Pakistan's courts following? And this is not some local Taliban congregation.. its a real court! Is Islam now the best sanction … [Read more...]

Peace loving and violence: a dialogue of Kashmiris

"Stop talking of Kashmir, if you do not know what happens there!" burst out Khurshid. He had been listening to the self gloating talk of four guys who had been praising how the Indian Government was handling the situation. He had seen how his younger brother's bullet ridden body had one day been brought home. He was just 4. The stony eyes on a still glowing face with bullet ridden stomach was hard to digest. Khurshid was angry. But he had never wanted to be another killer. His family had … [Read more...]

Deafening "Activist" Silence and terrorist Explosions destroy yet another Buddha!

Swat Valley or Shrivastu as it was known earlier (and home of the Shrivastavas of the Indian Kayasthas), is known for the Buddhist relics of the Gandhara era. One of them is the cross-legged Buddha. Swat has also been Pakistan's best ski resort. It is now in news because the Islamists of the North West Frontier province want to blow the Buddha statue away just like the Taliban did to Bamiyan in Afghanistan. Strangely, not a word of protest has been heard from the Islamic world, intellectuals … [Read more...]

Hinglaj Temple in Pakistan and Bonded Labourers

Hinglaj Mata temple is in Pakistan near Karachi. Here are some devotees. These kids are bonded labourers who work on the farms of the feudal lords in Pakistan. It is sad that kids are even today in bonded labor. How the feudal lords (fundamentalist in their own right) treat Hindu poor kids is beyond imagination. I,nevertheless, loved the extremely expressive faces of these kids with innocence showing so clearly! For children, it is great fun - especially for Thari children who remain … [Read more...]

Reservation for OBCs at IITs and IIMs: Supreme Court says NO!!

Whenever I have looked at the American "Democracy", I have thanked God (or whoever) that India is a BETTER democracy! One of the most foundational principle of a democracy is independence of the three branches: Executive, Legislature, and Judiciary, such that there are adequate checks and balances on each. Well.. US doesn't even pretend to have the any modicum of that independence! Just as the last 8 years have amply shown - the Executive is the king and Legislature and Judiciary … [Read more...]
