The Racist and Unlawful Law Minister: A disgrace

Racism by definition means, “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races”. Indians have always criticized other countries for their racial behavior towards us. We say racism in any form is not acceptable and yes that stands true, any day.

Now there happened an incident of which I am very ashamed. A minister of Delhi that too of law, attempted raid on African nationals in Khidki village. These Ugandan and Nigerian women were allegedly dealing in Prostitution and drug use. Which are against law, so kudos to our minister for his act.

But what happened next was shameful, He(Law Minister) demanded police conduct medical tests on foreign nationals and even search a house, without a warrant, which some locals believed was a den of vice. He rebuked a police officer for refusing to act without following due process. Later it was reported that there was no intoxicant use. The tests ruled out consumption of any psychotropic substances.

On Friday morning, the women approached the police with separate complaints against unnamed AAP volunteers and sought police protection. The victims (foreign women) alleged that they were beaten by the men and were made urinate in front of public. If they needed urine sample for test it could have been done in a li’l private or at least in presence of women police only and not in front of whole audience. They disgraced the Gender their Party promised protection and security before coming in Political Power and forming Government.

I understand that these women might have been involved in some unlawful activities but that does not allow inhuman behavior towards them. Two negatives does not always make a positive.

There was a Gang Rape in our CM’s legislative election area and now one of his cabinet minister doing this, was this the same party we wanted so badly to come in power? Are they fulfilling their purpose?

Moreover, what is really bugging is Mr. CM coming to National Television and saying their party is not Racist and no one should be embarrassed for our law minister’s UNLAWFUL and INHUMAN act. Well I half agree Sir, that making raid is absolutely fine but rest I sincerely doubt.

And also if anyone wants to search the place where you live Mr. CM, be it your Minister or President of the Nation you love, I do not think you will allow considering the person you are. [Rudeness Intended]

I am ashamed that at any point I supported you or your party, Mr. CM. #QuitAAP

AAP condemned for racist action

AAP is not racist, says Kejriwal

AAP: Hues and Cry! Blames! Distrust! and Disgust!

India is a democracy and this so-called fact has been abused so much that it’s magnitude is unimaginable. In a democracy everyone has a right to say what one wants and this has led to a Politics of accusations, blames and condemnation of others. Congress says it’s BJP’s fault that country is facing so many challenges and BJP blames it on Congress.

People got fed up of this sort of disgust, so they looked up to a new alternative AAP. They came as a revolution with promises to eradicate corruption, make Aam Aadmi’s (Common Man’s) life easier and serve the nation for a better future. But look what they are turning into, Mr. Kejriwal is seeking Modi and Rahul’s views.

I am fine with Modi but Rahul Gandhi, now that is some low Mr. Arvind has hit. But that is not the disgusting part, the saddening thing is they are doing what rest of the political parties had been doing in the past. Have we learnt nothing in all these 66 years. Is it all about getting your Party in power? Is there nothing like some respect to an individual’s credentials?

Mr. Kejriwal you are an IITian, an ex Asst. Commissioner and now CM of a state yet you have not proved yourself as an administrative leader. Mr Modi has been proving himself as a strong administrator and a proficient leader for last 13 years since 2001. In July 2007, he became the longest-serving Chief Minister in Gujarat’s history when he had been in power for 2,063 days continuously.

I understand you just asked for his views but with this you start o involve yourself in the same genre of politicians which has been maligning this area since Independence. People have high hopes from you Sir and no one (who supports you or speak against you) wants you to let them down.


Emergency in India: Why it was the darkest hours and so controversial?

This Post was my response to a question on Quora: http://www.quora.com/History-of-India/Why-is-the-National-Emergency-of-1975-seen-as-one-of-the-most-controversial-times-in-the-History-of-India/answer/Puneet-Tripathi-1?__snids__=240894766&__nsrc__=2

There were allegations by opposition that Indira Gandhi practiced electoral fraud to win the 1971 elections because of which there was huge unrest among political parties, student communities and citizens everywhere. People started protest and their agitation led to demand of dissolution of state government first in Gujrat and then later in Bihar. Gujrat’s happened but Bihar’s was refused by central govt.

Raj Narain filed case against Indira Gandhi in Allahabad High Court and in the verdict the then PM Mrs. Indira Gandhi was found guilty of the charges. See moved to supreme court but the decision was upheld by the Apex Court, she was not allowed to vote but she could continue as PM. This happened on 24th June 1975, JP Narain called a huge rally on 25th where he advised police to reject the decision of court and arrest her as the verdict was immoral.

So to save the power and possession of her position the next day she(Indira Gandhi) proposed emergency to president as the incident of 25th June could have led to a mass rebellion. AND THE EMERGENCY WAS DECLARED. The next 19 months were called blackest hours by JP Narain.


It happened in the interest of one person and we know who she was, a hint the then PM.
Any person who opposed or spoke against her was put behind the bars. That was the time that all these big political names like L.K.Advani, Atal Ji, D.P. Tripathi and thousand others spent their time in jail. Anyone who was considered threat was there in prison.
It was absolute anarchy in otherwise Democratic Nation. 
Elections were postponed indefinitely. Satan Gandhi and her parliamentary majorities could rewrite the nation’s laws, since her Congress party had the required mandate to do so – a two-thirds majority in the Parliament. And when she felt the existing laws were ‘too slow’, she got the President to issue ‘Ordinances’ – a law making power in times of urgency, invoked sparingly – completely bypassing the Parliament, allowing her to rule by decree.
In 1976-1977, the program counted 8.3 million sterilizations, up from 2.7 million the previous year.
Detention of people by police without charge or notification of families was a common occurrence. Abuse and torture of detainees and political prisoners was done only for the welfare of the state[sarcasm intended].
Use of public and private media institutions, like the national television network Doordarshan for Govt propaganda.
Constitution was amended and updated for govt’s or rather Indira Satan Gandhi’s benefit multiple times and laws were created overnight which gave her powers way above law.


The list of evil done can go on but there are no doubts around why they were darkest hours of India. And also why that period was so controversial.
