Why this Mass Molestation!

I fail to understand why man is so callous towards animals. Isn’t many men trying too “embrace” a single bull mass molestation too? I am surprised how so many females, who are supposed to be sensitive towards such issues, have come out openly in support of Jallikattu knowing well enough that they were the ones who were allegedly mass molested by men not very long ago in Bangalore. BTW, mass…

Jallikattu Ban & More

Jallikattu ban is fantastic. In fact, I find killing animals for anything other than self-protection unjustified; so, yes, I don’t kill and eat animals with the exception of eggs (which is because I don’t see the chick inside the egg though I know it exists; it’s a convenient exception). Anyways, I don’t hate meat eaters. But I do have a problem when animals are not only killed for food but…

National Anthem: Play national anthem in all cinemas before film screening: Supreme Court (External Resource)

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Play-national-anthem-in-all-cinemas-before-film-screening-Supreme-Court/articleshow/55701366.cms? My Comment: This is one of the most regressive judgment of the recent times. When people are talking of borderless world, the Indian SC is reinforcing the parochial notions of nationalism. It is a well-known fact that more lives have been lost in nationalist wars than in any terrorist attack, natural clamaity, or epidemic. Nationalism has always been in direct conflict with humanism. However, more distressing is the fact…

Yasin Malik severely ill: JKLF – Kashmir Times

http://www.kashmirtimes.in/newsdet.aspx?q=59114 My Comment: If Yasin Malik’s wife is to be believed, he is being tortured in his illness. If it is true it is a gross violation of human rights. Why Indian national  media is not taking it up? They have not even run the news of his illness. Yasin Malik is a pretty strong rebel. Media is not supposed to cover state soldiers and leaders only. They have a…
