Freedom of Sexpression in JNU

Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is in the news once again and surely not for the right reason.

Anmol Ratan, a Ph.D student and a very prominent high ranking leader (former state president) of the CPI (ML) affiliated All India Students' Association (AISA) has surrendered to Delhi Police after remaining absconding for 4 days on a case filed against him by a M Phil student of the same university for raping her in his hostel room on the campus on last saturday. The victim, who recorded her statement before a magistrate, has told the police that Ratan contacted her on Facebook after she posted looking for a CD of the Marathi movie “Sairat” and later also Whatspped her, offering the CD. He then picked her up from her hostel and took her to his room at the Brahmaputra Hostel on the JNU campus for giving the CD. He offered her a spiked soft drink there and later raped her after she fell unconscious. After that he told her that he did not have the CD of the film. He then called her 13 times through the night to warn her of dire consequences if she tells anyone about the alleged rape. Police found his phone switched off during investigation.

Something is seriously wrong in JNU, which is frequently in news for the wrong reason. There is nothing prestigious about this university anymore, which has become a den for anti-social and anti-national elements like drug addicts, rapists and separatist/terrorist sympathiser traitors. These students affiliated to various separatist, terrorist and specially communist political organizations, think themselves to be above the jurisdiction of law of the land citing democracy and freedom of expression as if JNU is a separate sovereign nation, where they are engaged in anything but research & studies, enjoying almost a free ride at tax payers expense.

This is not the first case against these people — they talk about female emancipation but indulge in such crimes. A few months ago, a JNU female student had accused the university’s Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar of misbehaving with her by flashing his private parts and threatening her, after she had confronted him for urinating in the open on the campus. There are many other such accusations against these Communist student activists. In the past, they would silence the victims at gender sensitization committee against sexual harassment (GSCASH) level and would get these issues resolved there itself. But this time they have been exposed, as the victim straight away went to the police. What a shameless bunch. They are not really students but Communist party activists masquerading as students just to live on state largesse. It is the influence of the communists over the Congress Party that enabled these parasites to remain blood suckers for last 68 years. Communists are normally parasites on the state, the world over. Hence in most parts of the world - after people have understood their game - have thrown them out permanently.

When the incident of anti-India sloganeering happened a few months back, these activists and their supporter Left leaning-Nehruvian-Lutyenite-intellegentsia said that police should not have entered the JNU campus. Would the same logic apply even in this present case now and the campus should be treated as 'outside' the nation’s purview for any crimes committed? This is the Azaadi that these JNU hoodlums fight for and the Congressi-Marxist-Radical-Jihadi-Castiest (CMRJC) brigade of media, intellectuals and politicians support them. JNU today is a hotbed of all kind of illegal and anti-national activities in the name of freedom apart from right education, right values and nation building. I am sure this CMRJC brigade will very soon come up with the theory of "freedom of sexpression" to defend their Anmol Ratan, as a consensual sex conspired by political opponents led by the BJP. They are almost surely working on a plan to discredit the victim female student. These Naxalite-Maoist-Jihadi Terrorist sympathiser students in JNU, do not respect their nation, their civilization and their culture. What do you expect them to do with fellow lady students? At the age of almost 30s, people normally settle down in their family life but these scumbags in JNU call themselves student and enjoy life at the cost of tax payers money by indulging in anti-social and anti-national activities. If they continue to be students at an age when they should have been fathers, this is what they will indulge in. And the Left leaning-Nehruvian-Lutyenite-intellegentsia of our country are silent now, not worried that their ideal students are indulging in such activities in their “secular-socialist-sovereign” campus but more worried about Kashmir’s Azaadi. These intellectuals encourage these students to celebrate Mahishasur Divas during Durga Puja/Navratri & call Goddess Durga a prostitute and then go on in drinking binge and end up forcing someone in bed. These people can’t control these 30 something kiddos in campus but speak about Azaadi. Very soon we may see Rahul Gandhi, Sitaram Yechuri, Arvind Kejriwal visiting JNU to meet their Anmol Ratans to show solidarity with them for their great achievement. I would not be surprised if another theory comes out from these intellectual legal brains as to how the accused (even after rape is proved) should not be convicted.

It’s high time that law enforcement agencies and University administration act quickly & sternly against these students, punish them and permanently eliminate all such elements from the campus and create a positive education environment. There is an urgent need to lift the morale of those students who are truly interested in academics and improve the image of the university.

70th Independence Day Speech of Prime Minister Modi

The Independence Day speech of the Prime Minister is meant to charge patriotic fervor, reinstill pride in India, reiterate Govt's commitment to every Indian, inspire hope and strengthen confidence. Prime Minister Modi, through his speech today on “Ek Bharat, Shresth Bharat” from the ramparts of the Red Fort after unfurling the tricolour roused people's hope and expectations and promised the true freedoms that have eluded us for more than 68 years. He works 24×7 nonstop for the nation and the Independence day speech conveys his vision for this nation and its 125 cr citizens. In his speech today the “will power” to perform by his Govt. is clearly visible unlike previous regimes. Modi’s message is simple, powerful and has the road map to change the fate of the nation. Thus he said today that his Govt. has adopted the mantra of 'Reform, Perform and Transform' to make a new India and has avoided populism. He has also put the onus on the 125 Cr people of India to convert our 'Swaraj' into 'Surajya'. He has reminded that for this to happen “from Parliament to Panchayats, Gram Pradhans to the Prime Minister, everyone has to fulfil their responsibilities”. After 70 years of Independence, the nation has changed. There was a time when the Govt. was surrounded by allegations, but now the Govt. is surrounded by expectations. Now the people don’t get satisfied by a mere declaration of policy or plan but they expect to see the changes on grassroots. Hence he said “today, more than 'Karya', I want to talk about 'Karya Sanskriti' of the Govt.”. He also reiterated his Govt.’s commitment and said his Govt. doesn’t do anything in bits and pieces but has an integrated approach to its work. PM Modi said Swarajya is about empowering citizens and improving their quality of life and that his Govt. was committed to bring that change to every citizen of the country. Talking about social tension, Modi said India’s unity is in diversity and this is our strength. “Social justice is the basis to attain this goal,” he said. “Only financial growth is not important, social unity is also important”. 125 Cr people of India are part of one family”, Modi said. He said “a nation which is divided because of reasons like caste and religion can’t achieve great things. Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Ambedkar and saints like Ramanajunacharya have stressed on the need for social unity. We all will have to rise above the age old evils in our society to achieve the goal of  a robust and successful India”.

His speech had a strong message about how his government was promoting transparency in governance. The Prime Minister highlighted a lot of measures his Govt. has taken over the past couple of years to transform the life of its citizens. There have been a lot of administrative reforms during the present Govt’s little more than 2 years term. It is a silent revolution.  Almost every village, every town and every citizen’s life is being transformed to make our nation a progressive, prosperous and strong world power. If we want to prosper, if we want to see more money in our pockets, we have to work hard for it. What Modi as PM is striving to do is to make it easier for people to interact with Govt. departments so that we are not hassled, reduce corruption, make processes simpler & streamlined to improve the quality of Govt. services to make it easier & transparent for individuals, entrepreneurs and even foreign companies to set up their businesses in India,  improve skills of young people of our country so that people here can get more & better opportunities for employment and earning thereby improve quality of life. This Govt. is also making the people of the nation aware that we have to keep our cities, villages and homes clean.

Prime Minister Modi also sent a strong message to the forces inimical to India that this nation won’t yield to terrorism, extremism & aggression on its integrity & sovereignty and give befitting & disproportionate reply. He also appealed to the misguided youths to shun violence and return to mainstream. Continuing from his recent assertion in Parliament that there won’t be any compromise on India’s security & integrity and that Pak Occupied Kashmir (PoK) is rightfully ours and it’s the only issue to be settled with Pakistan, he reiterated our commitment to the people of Gilgit, Balochistan and PoK to take their voices & struggle to the international forums. This is the first time ever that an Indian Prime Minister boldly and openly asserted our claim on PoK and also committed to support the cause of independent Balochistan. For decades since Independence, India has historically and inexplicably let Pakistan run away with the Kashmir narrative. Pakistan has forced 3 battles on us over Kashmir issue and lost all 3. But still managed to set the terms despite being the vanquished. And as victors, all that successive Indian Govts did was to adopt a defensive posture. While we have always tended to ignore, even play down our legal claim over PoK, Pakistan has never failed to claim its writ on the area on our side of LoC through diplomatic, overt and covert means. Modi Govt since coming to power has made Pakistan realize that it’s a different Indian Govt. who would not hesitate to adopt any means to inflict heavy causality on its enemy diplomatically and militarily. The uprising we see today in PoK and Balochistan are surely results of Modi Govt’s covert tactical warfare.

Narendra Modi is a committed and hardworking Prime Minister with a clear vision. First time since independence, we have a transparent and responsive Govt., who instead of governing through populism and leap service is working on a road map to transform India into a “Shresth Bharat” with all round development. Modi is trying to bridge the difference between the essence and practice of democracy. He is striving to take the people as stake-holders in nation building and the Govt. to act as a catalyst. Govt.  can’t change the nation alone. It is the people who must bring about real change. The Govt. needs to empower the citizens and institutionalise ideas. Modi as Prime Minister has given democracy a perspective which has long remained unattended by subsequent Congress regimes since we became a free country. While the Congress-led UPA never tired of providing people their rights (which they were entitled to Constitutionally anyway), Modi made the Govt. machinery realize its responsibilities and accountability. The Constitution of India guarantees citizens a number of rights but what the people need from the Govt. is not rights but action. A true democracy is a collaboration between the citizens and the Govt. In a real democracy, the Govt. has to take people into confidence to make it a combined effort. The spirit of people’s participation is what made India a free country. Similarly, for the nation’s development, there needs to be a mass movement. Till the leader of the nation, look at development through the prism of vote bank politics and treat its citizens as mere vote bank,  real all round development can’t happen. Modi is working to change the politics and governance of our nation from vote bank to development. Modi rightly says that we need freedom from the status quoist mindset. Modi’s mantra for governance is that “only new thoughts can bring in change - development will take place when there is an urge to go ahead to implement new ideas despite all the impediments on the way. Development is the panacea to all the problems afflicting the country”. He has correctly identified that in India, the problem with governance and the resultant growth in economic and social parameters, is  a dearth of thoughtful & innovative ideas and a lack of effective & quick implementation. Modi has proved that he has the ability to innovate and ensure effective implementation and good governance.
