Jailed in India,for over 40 years !

The ongoing fight of an Indian Advocate to seek justice for foreigners held in Indian jails.

Advocate Bhim Singh who has been fighting for repatriation of Foreigners serving in Indian jails since 1966 is also chief of Jammu And Kashmir Panthers Party, brought this matter as a Petitioner and told the bench that many Pakistani nationals were held without trial in many jails of the country. It is shocking that though most of them have served their sentences, they continue to be in our country’s jails.

Resulting, the Supreme Court asked  the Union Government to give comprehensive list of Pakistani prisoners in India within two weeks to understand the status of the cases pending against them and help activate the bureaucratic machinery in speeding up the repatriation process.

Advocate Singh is the first and foremost human rights activist and lawyer in the Supreme Court of  India and has made continuous efforts helping many Pakistani and other foreign nationals get back home after serving their terms in Indian jails and he is the ray of hope for prisoners serving over their sentenced tenure and for their relatives, back home.

Hopefully , there are Advocates like  Bhim Singh who strongly believe in right to life of every human,  across the borders of our country, who can send back Indian prisoners who are over-serving their term in Pakistani jails.

Snake Swallows A Frog.

Have you seen a snake swallowing its prey ?

Well, we happened to view it on our way inside dense paddy fields. The experience of capturing it was very different as we could see a helpless frog loosing its life and a desperate snake winning its meal. Neither the snake was too big nor the frog hence we found the battle worth capturing.

Amar Singh questions Mayawati.

Amar Singh back in news !

Amar Singh the chief of Rashtriya Lokmanch who has been out of news since long,is back with a  request to Mayawati to issue a white paper on how much has been spent in Ambedkar parks in Noida and Lucknow and how much  has the government spent in its entire tenure for the welfare of the citizens of the state.

The state lacks employment opportunities forcing people to migrate to other states to earn their living even at the cost of life threats yet the chief minister is proud to have made her dream parks but what about the welfare of the people of the state, who are alive and suffering ?
Big question is, will her statue and Dalit Memorial parks give  employment opportunities to the people who migrate to earn their living ?

Raj explains attack on cbfc and Rahul Gandhi

Raj Thackerey in the news again ?

1.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief – Raj Thackeray supported MNS members attacking  the offices of the Central Board of Film Censors on 14th November 2011 at around 4pm in opposition to the demand they made, months back, to the board, to include at least one Marathi Manus in the board to censor Marathi movies.

Is it not enough to know the guidelines and follow the same while judging movies ? Is it that important to include atleast one “Maharashtrian” from theatre or Marathi cinema ?

Well, supporting the move of his party members ransacking some offices just because they do not agree to their party’s request cannot be appreciated. Are there no other ways the MNS finds suitable other than voilent attacks , be it on the North Indian rickshaw  and taxi drivers or destroying  office properties ? 

Is Anna Hazare’s non-voilent methods of fasting and raising support not an example of better way of keeping one’s point ?

2.

Also speaking on Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Phulpur, Utter Pradesh, he claimed Rahul Gandhi was ill-informed about U.P.  after Rahul made a comment that for how long youths from the state need to go and beg for work in Maharashtra ,pointing at  the lack of employment opportunities in the state .

Thackeray viewed that the people of Utter Pradesh must ask Rahul what his party had done for the state in the past so many years for the state as every member of the Gandhi family, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and even Rahul himself  have been elected from UP and Congress party had got opportunities to rule the state for decades in the past. The question raised on Rahul Gandhi and Congress is worth giving a thought !

Is it right to claim the present government of Mayawati as the sole reason of sufferings in Utter Pradesh?  What about the governments prior to this ? Did the political parties prior to Mayawati’s BSP do their share of  work ?

Sarabjit Singh in Pak prision since 1990 !

Jantar Mantar is about to witness yet another movement to bring back Sarabjit Singh.

On11.11.2011 at 11.11am Dalbir Kaur, sister of Sarabjit Singh and  president of the All India Youth Foundation, Virender Singh along with members of the foundation will take an oath at Amar Jawan (at India Gate) and therafter march to Jantar Mantar and will remain there and fast till the 21st of the month. This is to appeal to the people of the country to join them in their pledge to the government of India for the release Sarabjit from Pakistani Jail.

Sarabjit Singh is in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail  since last 21 years accused of being involved in 1990 serial bomb blasts in Lahore and Multan which killed 14 people and was arrested while crossing border. His lawyer in Pakistan has argued it is a ‘clear case of mistaken identity.’
Manjit Singh’s(Sarabjit Singh) sister and wife claim he is a simple farmer who left to plough his fields near Wagah Border on August 28, 1990, but never returned and all their search went in vain until they received a letter from Manjit informing them that he was caught by Pakistani border forces when he mistakenly crossed the border under the influence of liquor.

Pakistan on the other hand claimed he is a RAW spy who was involved in the 1990 serial blasts and in April 2008 some Pakistani students group demanded  withdrawal of all official moves to pardon Sarabjit.

He was given death sentence, but his hanging has been repeatedly postponed. Well it is Sarabjit himself who knows what is the truth but is 21 years of imprisonment with rare hope of being released, not as good as death sentence?
