Kerala Burning



The recent lynching of an Adivasi in a tribal area of Kerala has largely gone unreported. There has been no outrage in the MSM like they normally would, probably because the victim is not a Muslim. In this case, the perpetrators are reported to be Muslims – and as always, the media covers up their crimes, whether it’s Kairana in UP or Kottathara in Kerala. It’s been more than a year since I wrote “Slaughterhouse Kerala” which is what it is – not God’s own country. Let us take a diversion first.

Contrary to popular belief John F Kennedy did not favour the Civil Rights Bill. In fact, in 1957 he voted against the Bill in the Senate. It’s only after he became the President that he supported it. But he didn’t get to pass the Bill as he was assassinated in November 1963. After his death, Lyndon Johnson passed the Bill in July 1964. The Bill “legally” ended discrimination against Blacks, bestowed equal rights and voting rights for all. But legislations don’t end discrimination in society, it takes a social revolution for that. Many legislations in India too did not end social discrimination. The end of many social discriminations had come through social reformers rather than legislations. In the US, the state of Mississippi still had many White Supremacists and groups that refused to accept the equality Bill and continued their discrimination and it progressively got worse.

The story of “Mississippi Burning” has been made into a much-dramatized movie. The “burning” refers to the burning of a Zion church (mostly frequented by Blacks) followed by endless violence against Blacks. Members of the “Ku Klux Klan” were mostly responsible for all of it and some police officers too were involved in these crimes. You can read up the stories online or watch the more real FBI documentary on Youtube. Following the crimes civil activists descended on the state. Three of them were killed and buried (two Whites and one Black activist). Here are some horrifying pics as reminders:
Why am I narrating this old story? Well, for one, racism still does exist in the US in some forms despite legislation against it. But in the case of Mississippi in the early 1960s, the US Federal govt did not stand by and watch as an idle spectator. FBI agents were sent in after the murder of the 3 activists and followed by over hundreds of more FBI agents to find the bodies of the activists and others killed. The Agents did manage to bring more than a dozen to justice and that mostly marked the end of the KKK. However, except in one case, most of the criminals weren’t charged with murder but served lengthy jail sentences. And this one criminal, Edgar Ray Killen, was convicted of murder 41 years after the crime and he died in prison recently.

And this story is important because it is the job of the Centre to ENFORCE laws and bring criminals to justice if a State fails. Sacking a State govt and imposing Central rule is not really the only option. In the current situation, the murder-spree and the endless killings of Hindus in Kerala does warrant a GOI intervention. A State cannot be allowed to defy laws, make murder its political policy and continue nonchalantly as the CPM govt does in Kerala.

The state of Kerala has long descended into an orgy of murders. The CPM in particular has murder as its “political policy” and this has been written and exposed before by many. In the state of Bengal 55000 murders in the 34 years of CPM still remain unexplained and unpunished. The question is, how long will this murder spree continue? And it is not just murder of Hindu workers or RSS/BJP members, there are other serious issues infesting the state. There are threats of Islamisation, there Sharia “No go” zones being reported, ISIS infiltrating and luring Muslim youth to terrorism. There is also the Popular Front (PFI) which is known for being a militant, anti-India organisation which has been banned in Jharkhand but also has its wings in Karnataka and elsewhere.

It is not just murders but the gruesome manner in which they are carried out. There are cases of houses being burned with residents inside. Even children weren’t spared. Cows were slaughtered on the streets as protest to infuriate the Hindu community. The CM of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, has been alleged to have been involved in murder of an RSS activist. He is also alleged to have infamously promoted the “Bengal model” of murder stating: “We should learn (how to kill adversaries) from Bengalis. They do it without shedding even a drop of blood. The (rivals) are kidnapped and buried in deep pits with a sack of salt added. The world will not (even) know about the blood, picture (of the victim) or news”. Given what’s happening in Kerala for years, this is not hard to believe. We may not even know of many murders that have gone unreported.

Ministers and members of the BJP govt at the Centre visit and conduct Yatras or meetings but this is not a problem that is going to be solved by such political activities. The Commies will not rest till Hindus are wiped out not only from Kerala but from many parts of India itself. Their agenda is not just murder but complete elimination of Hindu culture. Add to all this the loot of Hindu temples or the agenda of “Love Jihad” which the media denies but is rampant in some parts. And now comes the news of the most brutal lynching and murder of an Adivasi named Madhu in Attapadi tribal area of Kerala:
According to reports Madhu was frequently robbing shops and was mentally-challenged. He was around 27-30 years of age by different accounts. The mob that beat up Madhu had a person who even clicked pictures and took selfies as the guy was being thrashed. The lynch-mob finally handed him over to the police but Madhu died on the way to the hospital. So far, two have been arrested for this murder - K Hussein and PP Kareem. The selfie-guy Ubaid (in the pic above) seems to be absconding. Had Madhu been a Muslim, there would have been a huge outrage in our media, from the Sickulars and even from international media mafia. But in this case, the victim is an Adivasi and the perpetrators are Muslims. So, the entire gang of Sickulars and their Chrislamist media are largely in stone cold silence. The TV media, in particular, did not even spend ten minutes on this gruesome murder.

This lynching may be accidental but the routine, targeted murders in Kerala simply cannot go on anymore. It is time the Centre stepped in. They must discuss with the State govt and come to a clear deal that the murders will stop and all the killers in previous murders will be hunted down and prosecuted within a time frame. If not, the GOI must issue a clear warning and timeline that it will send its own investigators to all the murders in the past 5 years or so. There are those who argue law and order is a State matter therefore Centre is helpless. This is nonsense. India is far less federal in nature than the US is. And the Mississippi burning case should be a good yardstick. Mind you, even in the Mississippi cases, the FBI only did the investigations, the prosecution was eventually done by the State under severe compulsions. Recently, US President Donald Trump stated he would send Federal troops to Chicago if the violence there does not end. And I am sure he will not hesitate to do so if the situation warranted it. What is happening in Kerala is far worse than Chicago.

The GOI can undertake investigations through NIA or CBI and nothing can stop that. GOI has all the powers to constitute a special SIT when Kerala has reached such an extreme stage. If need be, ModiSarkar has enough muscle to pass an ordinance for such an SIT.  Thousands of CBI or NIA agents must descend on Kerala and investigate every major Political and Religious murder – whether reported or unreported, whether FIR registered or not. If action is taken by GOI, people will come forward to give testimonies. Merely sitting back and watching the crimes continue unabated is not an option anymore. We have many states on the boil – J&K, Assam, Bengal and Naxals in some other states. Jammu is more or less destroyed by infiltration, demographic alterations with Rohingyas and refugees.

If any govt can halt these crimes then it is only the current GOI. The more important question is – if not ModiSarkar, then which other Sarkar would even show the slightest interest in stopping the killing of Hindus? The Sickulars like SP or BSP or TMC or Kamal Haasan? Kerala is burning and with the enemies around our borders and within this country, I have no doubts that they will attempt to set more states on fire. Ignoring the threat is a grave and serious mistake.

Scamsters Paradise



In the first few weeks after ModiSarkar came to power in 2014, they set up an SIT on black money. I don’t know what happened to that SIT and what report it has submitted in four years since. In any case, no black money of any quantity has come back and this was one of the promises PM Modi had made – to bring back black money. I was pretty sure no black money is ever coming back and therefore, in a few months after this SIT, I wrote “Baby black is not coming back”. Lists were collected from various foreign banks during the previous Congress govt who decided not to disclose any names. ModiSarkar went one better; they appealed to the SC to hide many names claiming this would affect treaties with other countries. Arun Jaitley had more to show for all this.

Jaitley played games with the SC and the black money hoarders. Back in October 2014 Ram Jethmalani wrote a letter to AJ about it. Before these events, Jaitley (as usual) was in his “Durbar” mouthing stupid statements (I quote from my post linked in the first para): “To his eternal mutual-fan Barkha Dutt he said “I won’t be embarrassed if the names are released” meaning the BJP won’t be affected. To Navika Kumar on TimesNow he said “I am not saying anything, I am just smiling” when asked if there were any Congress names. AJ is used to political games in the Lutyens club”. AJ doesn’t like Defence or I&B (he is fit for only I&B though). PC too didn’t like the Home Ministry. Both of them like the “Big boys club” and both them are darlings of the media. You will NEVER find any serious criticism of these two in the media:
I don’t have any doubts that many fraudsters and black money hoarders are being deliberately protected. The list of names was to be given to SC by the SIT in a “sealed envelope”. I guess the list would be opened and disclosed in about 50 years when most of us are dead. Nobody is going to jail; no black money will ever be recovered. Now we are up against the financial crimes of Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi and maybe a few more. In their own diamond industry, traders didn’t trust these two and for few years sold them stuff only against cash. Trust me, the Indian banking system is the most subject to fraudulent acts or abuse of power by the managers and directors of every bank. This is particularly with the PSU banks.

I have known businessmen and banks to collude and create and encash bogus LCs without material ever being actually sold. I have known businessmen and banks collude to discount bills of large sums for material never sold. I have known banks to banks to discount even bogus PDCs. I know of manufacturers showing billing and despatch from Daman or Silvassa to escape excise in the past. Such units had no more than a small shop in Daman/Silvassa with a table and chair in the place. I know a particular case where the bank and the business owner continued this practice over years. What the businessman did with the fraudulent borrowings is to invest in Real Estate. He made handsome gains in the real estate business in a short period and never defaulted on the borrowings so nobody faced any problems. Some years later the real estate business collapsed and the bank was in a deep hole and so was the businessman. They somehow managed to cover up the entire fraud.

Needless to say, in all these scams (of much smaller denominations) the bank manager gets a handsome “reward”. Many of these usually happen at banks at industrial zones where managers personally come to know the units and their owners quite well as also their modus operandi. They rely on the security of assets to cover up for their collusion. Diamonds are forever but they can also be FAKE, as we discovered in the recent cases. Some snippets in the Nirav-Mehul episode make interesting reading:
It’s interesting what Sanjay Pugalia says in his tweet above. Not only did Nirav Modi know his scams were coming out, he also planned well in advance to escape from India – Lock, Stock and Children. Surely, all the Babus and bank managers he must have “oiled” so well must have given him enough tips and time to escape. Mehul Choksi has also run off abroad. Hard to say if these guys are going to come back or if they hold citizenships of other countries. Doesn’t matter, none of the scam money is ever going to come back. Even in the case of Lalu Prasad, the courts sent him to jail but nary a mention of the recovery of money he was convicted of looting.

India has become a Scamsters Paradise. Thanks mostly to the Congress for this. If you have some connections you can loot Indian banks at will. The Congress is the “Congotri” of scams and corruption. From Govt scams to others like Vadra to the latest Nirav-Mehul scams, I have no doubts all of these are blessed by Congress. The problem is, PM Modi is unable or unwilling to act – hard to tell why. Maybe Jaitley influences the course of dealing with scamsters beyond NaMo’s control. Otherwise, how does one explain the govt and its ministers still sleeping and romancing criminal fraudsters like NDTV?
Very frequently, the frauds of NDTV keep coming out. Lately, a scam through FIPB clearance is out. PC’s son Karti is known and reported to have acted as a “broker” for such clearances and alleged to have made a lot of money through such brokerage. PC possessed a sealed letter to the SC on the Aircel-Maxis scam at his home which was discovered during the raid. Both PC and Karti are being investigated in the case. How these two fraudsters still roam around nonchalantly and keep blabbering nonsense against PM Modi is beyond comprehension. This can happen only in India. All these scamsters are UNTOUCHABLES. None of this will affect Jaitley one bit. AJ is just an unelectable Lutyens Durbar operator. But it dents the credibility of PM Modi a lot and he seems helpless despite being the most powerful PM in office in over 3 decades. Sample this by MD Nalapat in the Sunday Guardian:

his “Modi’s) government has ordered the forcible merger of a Mumbai-based company with a now defunct stock exchange begun by the major shareholder of the former. Oddly, the stockbrokers who actually owed the moneys in default seem to have escaped penal action thus far, while a separate company has been marked for destruction through forcible payment by it of the dues of the other entity. There have been whispers that the move against this company was taken on the instance of a former Finance Minister, who wanted to both destroy an exchange competing with a favourite of his, as well as to protect the parties guilty of default…”

It is also interesting how the Congis and PC, in particular, made life for the scamsters a lot easier by tweaking the bank security systems. The Congress govt let go a more secure but cheaper security system in favour of a “Finacle” by Infosys that cost some 25 times more at 1000 crores and with some 1000 more holes in it. I wonder if “Finacle” stands for “Financial Debacle”. The managers of PNB in Nirav Modi scam had access to all the security systems:
The NDTV saga is all the more alarming and starting to become a joke with ModiSarkar looking scared to even touch them. Prannoy Roy now writes letters to the PM claiming Subramanian Swamy exposing their frauds will “hurt India” and damage “freedom of Press”. NONSENSE! NDTV is a fraudulent, anti-national entity that neither stands for India nor for any journalistic ethics or freedom. But I have no doubts that this FIPB crap is not some investment issue but is an outright fraud. I also have no doubts that a lot of kickbacks would have gone to those who allowed this money-laundering. Anyone can easily guess whose funds NDTV was laundering:
 
In the Nirav Modi episode too a lot of Congis are linked – from Pappu to Sibal to Abhishek Singhvi. PM Modi may not be personally corrupt or dishonest in anyway whatsoever. Nobody ever questions his integrity. But all these incidents and many more that are yet to come out do question his moral authority to talk endlessly about the “Fight against corruption”. There is something else that ModiSarkar could have done, apart from the SC-demanded SIT on black money.

At the beginning of his term, PM Modi should have ordered all PSU banks to send in a list of all defaulters of over some amount (say 10 crores or so). All of these people put together may not have exceeded one lakh in number. Scrutiny of this small population is not difficult for a govt committed to put away scamsters. Had ModiSarkar done this and acted on defaulters then many continuing scams could have been averted and many corrupt banks exposed. Even during Demonetisation many banks and managers were found carrying out fraudulent acts and recycling black money for bigwigs.

Who knows, maybe ModiSarkar did have the list of all the defaulters and scamsters. But may the FM and the FinMin decided to turn a blind-eye for the reason that a large-scale crack down might see job-losses and shutting down of many business units. That was a risk worth taking at the start of the term of ModiSarkar than seeing unemployment rise and units shutting down even otherwise at the end of four years of BJP rule. Under Congress, India had become a Scamsters Paradise and none of the scamsters have lost anything under ModiSarkar either. The only real fools are the little people who have to face rejections by banks for small loans or inquiries by the IT department or other departments. Continuance of the scamsters paradise will only produce more scamsters, not end corruption and frauds. Nirav or Mehul are nothing in this whole game.
