The Delhi High court has declared the ceremony of anointment of Shuban Bukhari as the successor of his father Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari as the Naib Imam of Jama Masjid has no legal sanctity. The Court has questioned the Waqf Board as to why they have not taken any action against the Imam and has issued notice to and sought responses of the Centre, Wakf Board and Imam Bukhari on the three PILs challenging the Imam’s decision to appoint his son as the Naib Imam. The Centre had said that Jama Masjid is a Wakf property and it has to decide how the rule of primogeniture applies on anointment of new Shahi Imam. The court, however, did not ask ‘stay’ the ceremony.
Yet another brutal incident of gang-rape and murder of two dalit sisters in Uttar Pradesh is making to the ‘Breaking News’. The bodies of the girls were found hanging on a tree. The state Govt put on question, got agitated on media while the opposition parties are trying to make most out of the gruesome incident by visiting victims’ family, offering condolences,announcing compensations and demanding CBI probe. Some are even taking the credit of CBI probe because of their intervention.
While Akhilesh Yadav, CM of UP was seen counter-questioning the media for hyping the news,Rahul Gandhi made sure to drive media attention by paying visit to victims’ family. Soon, SP’s local MP, Dharmendra Yadav, followed and with compensation. BSP supremo,Mayawati too included her name in the visitors list and offered compensation to the family while accusing, yet again, the state govt for its ‘jungle raj’.
Reminds of SP supremo-Malayam Singh Yadav’s controversial remark on rapes where he said ‘boys make mistakes.Shouldn’t be hung.’ for rapists. In a state ruled by party of eminent thinkers and politicians like Mulayam Singh, is rape and murder ‘that big a deal’?
For those who may not be aware of Kabaddi,it is one of the ethnic and old games played in India and neighbouring countries, the name of which originates from Tamil word- ‘ Kai-pidi’ meaning ‘Hold Hands’ .
The 2014 General Elections,in a nutshell,is Modi vs All.From small state level parties to big national level , all seem to be stopping this one man from being the Prime Minister of India 2014. Few are also from within his team. Others are maintaining silence to see the results before reacting and taking decisions.
After all, there are many silent contenders who wish to get the top job,few are known to all and few are waiting for the right opportunity. Almost all the parties are playing to stop Modi , be it newly formed AAP or formed since pre-Independence, Congress.
Regardless of the results of 2014 General Elections,Modi has surely emerged as the only extraordinary Indian politician for who citizens of the nation seem to have divided into two groups - Pro-Modi and Anti-Modi.
In a short tv speech , Sonia Gandhi,the Congress President is seen appealing to the people of India to defeat the ‘divisive and autocratic forces’ in the nation. She attacked the BJP by claiming their vision is clouded with hatred and falsehood.
Looks like , its little too late now. Had it not been better Congress would have worked all this while ?? Will this last minute appeal really work for Congress ??
After Manish Tewari declared himself unfit and decided not to fight polls from Ludhiana,its the Union Finance Minister,P Chidambaram who is not going to fight elections from Sivaganga, Tamil Nadu from where he was elected an MP in 2004 and 2009 and instead his son Kirti Chidambaram will replace him.
Is this just co-incidence or fear of loss ? ;)
Addressing close to 600 women from self-help groups in Assam’s Jorhat Congress Vice President,Rahul Gandhi got a surprise kiss on cheek and forehead by one of the women while shaking hands.
Well….now who says answering ‘women empowerment’ to almost all questions asked by Arnab Goswami was that bad an answer given by Rahul Gandhi?
Rahul Gandhi’s very first official interview since joining politics and that too on ‘Frankly Speaking with Arnab Goswami’ has drawn a queue of controversies.Some say he should have apologized for the 1984 Sikh riots and some say how he could accuse Modi of 2002 Gujarat riots when the Supreme Court has declared him clean.
However,the 1 hour 20 mins video of this interview has seen Rahul Gandhi dodging many direct questions asked by interviewing journalist Arnab Goswami . To, all most, all questions asked by Arnab ,Rahul would talk about youth and women empowerment and the youth joining politics. At times,the answers sounded totally out of the context and absurd.Like, when asked about his views on Narendra Modi , Rahul would talk about youth and women empowerment. :D
This interview has made Rahul Gandhi as smart as Rahul Mahajan looks on TV screen,forsure!
And here is a perfect take on Rahul’s interview with Arnab Goswami by renowned TV host Cyrus Brocha
Dear Visitors,I request you to please spare a few seconds more to give your very valuable feedback on how am I doing.
Congress Vice President , Rahul Gandhi has asked the Prime Minister to grant Jain community of India a minority status.After all,this is the age-old politics vote-bank,in the name of secularism.
And here is an outstanding article I came across on BeingCynical asking How to Spot Seculars. :)
A businessman,Saurabh Rastogi, was slapped with charges of rash driving by police for “dangerously” overtaking car of Robert Vadra,son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi.
Recently someone else had overtaken the political car of Congress in Delhi.Forget fine,he was awarded with support from outside to form a govt in Delhi.No points for right guesses !! ;) :D
