To Be Hanged Till Death!



Today (30th July 2015), 1993 Bombay bombings accused Yakub Memon hanged at Nagpur Central Jail after all legal remedies for his release or mercy failed in the court and with the president. The demand for extension of the date to examine the newly found facts from ex RAW secretary of Pakistan wing B. Raman's article was also rejected by Chief Justice in late night hearing. B. Raman in his 2007 article that published few days back in rediff.com claimed that he brought back Yakub after a deal with him and his hanging would tarnish India's credibility in handling such situations in future. The facts are yet to examine which encouraged Asaduddin Owaisi and others to raise doubts in his execution.

The situation worsened when Twitter trolls labeling all those supporting his mercy plea as traitor and anti-national using abusive and derogatory words for all Muslims. We live in a democratic country where we all have right to question the establishment and judicial system. I am not a legal expert but still I can point out few loopholes in the investigation and prosecution process.


  • Why was his family accompanying him when CBI arrested him at New Delhi Railway Station? It is possible only if he has surrendered with his family.
  • Why he was carrying a briefcase of evidences against his brother Tiger Memon and prime accused Dawood Ibrahim.
  • Why TADA revoked in Sanjay Dutt's case to reduce his imprisonment from life to only 5 years but Yakub's death penalty was granted according to TADA procedure. ( Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act. 
He was hanged after 22 years in imprisonment while others involved in similar charges in this case were either released or granted life imprisonment . On research you will notice that rioters who killed hundreds and thousands of innocent people just on the basis of one's religion which also spread disharmony among the people of the country never got capital punishment. Why Tamil Nadu assembly in Rajiv Gandhi's assassinates case and Punjab assembly in Beant Singh's (Former Chief Minister of Punjab) killer's case passed the resolution to revoke their death penalty.

The bias in police procedure and judicial hearings can be judged by the number of inmates in Indian jails. More than 65% people in Indian Jails are Muslim some of whom without any proven guilt. Those arrested in Malegaon blast case, Hyderabad Medina Masjid Blast case, Ajmer blast case on the basis of suspicion were all Muslims while later investigations revealed the hand of Hindu fanatic groups. Mere raising the questions on some one's death penalty makes you a traitor only because the accused is a Muslim. Why his hanging has made into a national issue if government was not looking at politics behind his hanging? An atmosphere of unnecessary tension was spread around the nation, Modi government should handle his execution like UPA did with Kasab and Afzal Guru. The doubts in judgement are raised because of the policies and behavior of the ruling party against the minorities. What they want to signify by hanging him on his birthday? 

A judge breaks the nib of pen he used to sign the death warrant as a mark of disgust from this inhumanly decision. 140 countries in the world are against capital punishment and India whose judicial system is based on repentance and realization of crime than the penalty is rejoicing a death. If it is for justice to the victims of 1993 blasts then make this procedure faster as victims of Uphar Cinema Tragedy, Hashimpura massacre, 1984 Sikh riot, 2002 Gujrat riot, 2013 Muzaffarnagar riot, Malegaon blasts, Ajmer blasts, Samjhauta Express blast, Nirbhaya Gang Rape Case Delhi,  etc are also waiting for the justice.

Good Bye Chacha Kalam!

Good Bye Chacha Kalam!



Hasti hui surat teri sabno bhari aankhein,
 tujhse mili har seekh har dum yaad rahegi

Smile on your face, dream in your eyes,
We will remember always your each advice.

Chacha or Uncle is used after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam or A.P.J. Abdul Kalam for being the only person after him who loved and cared for children. Mr Kalam who died last night (27.07.2015) was as inspirational in life as in death. He wished to die while working among the young generation which was granted by the almighty as he died while delivering a speech among students of IIM Shillong

I remembered him as the president who changed the way we looked at that office. Before he became President (11th President of India), this office was merely a decorative position granted under constitution to replace the Governor General position of British India. He chose this place to become closer to the people of India. He didn't sit in office to enjoy the comforts of presidency but visited different parts of the country to interact with students and public thus to impart in them his vision of India of the future. He always remained active for the cause of children's education which he believed is the first step towards change. He wrote many books which are inspirational and motivational. He was a pioneer in developing missile technology in India. He was the brain behind the Agni, Trishool and other such missiles we have with our army that's why he is also known as Missile-Man

The news of his sudden demise was shocking and painful at the same time. May Allah grant him the best place in the heaven. Although his lost is irreparable for the country but the legacy he left behind in the form of his works, his books and his life is an example of positiveness for all of us which will continue to instill hope and energy in the generations to come. He was also the best example of communal unity as he even practiced Hindu rituals in spite being a Muslim. I used to say him as 'The Einstein of India' for his looks. He was a simple man who believed in practice and not privilege. Good Bye Chacha Kalam may the journey to the heaven would be as satisfactory for you as the journey of your life.

Delhi Ka King Kaun?

Delhi Ka King Kaun? 



Bhiku Matre didn't find any competition when he claimed himself the king of Mumbai in the movie Satya but here in Delhi the situation is different and the public of Delhi is confused about 'Who is the king of Delhi?' The problem they never faced since 1993 the time Delhi was granted partial statehood and held its first assembly election. We never heard news about tiff between elected CM (Chief Minister) and Central Government appointed LG (Lieutenant Governor). Their fights have made public servants directionless and people of Delhi hopeless. 

Arvind Kejriwal who doesn't fit in the public known definition of political leader never in his election campaign speeches explained that he required full statehood before working on his poll promises. Either he was unaware of the procedure of working in Delhi or he was just luring voters at that time with fake promises. I am not saying that he is not doing anything actually I want to praise him for increase in education and health budget but the scenario he has created to expose the wrong doings of Modi government is not suitable for a person sitting on CM's chair. I am sure there are many better ways to handle the situation than to ridicule a constitutional post.

Najeeb Jung who was known as a sincere educationist and bureaucrat before being LG of Delhi has now reduced him as the puppet of Central government. It is an open secret that his actions are directed by Home Ministry and whatever hurdles he has created in functioning of an elected government are political motivated. He must resolve the differences amicably because at the end people matters the most in a democracy, the decisions taken by Mr Kejriwal wasn't for his benefit but for the benefit of the people of Delhi and raising objections to his every action is demeaning a constitutional post in people's eye.

I am personally not in the favor of decorative posts of LG's, Governor of states and President as they don't serve any help in the functioning of government instead I believe in a people powered body at that level with more powers to sign and decide for the bills send to them thus to make the process more democratic with the involvement of citizen. Anyways this is another issue of discussion now both the center and state government must understand that only people of the country are King in a democracy and their interest shouldn't hurt in their battle of supremacy. I don't understand why Narender Modi who fought a case against the Governor for unnecessary interference in government functioning as a CM of Gujarat now believes that Lt. Governor is the government in Delhi. Only Delhihites are Kings/Queens of Delhi.

Delhi's Serial Killer

Delhi's Serial Killer



Search for a missing girl in South Delhi on July 14, 2015 revealed a much sinister story of sexual assault and killings of minors aged between 2 to 10 at the hands of 24-year old laborer Ravinder Kumar. After discovering the dead body of missing girl in an empty house police arrested him through a driving licence of a person whom vehicle was stolen by him before abducting the girl.

Later in police interrogation he confessed to other such crimes not only in Delhi but also in Noida, Badaun, Hathras and Aligarh district of Uttar Pradesh. Everyday tolls of his victims are increasing and till now he has confessed the sexual assault and killing of 30 children. What is more strange is the fact that he remained out of police's reach in all these incidents and when arrested by police in 2014 for assaulting and dumping a boy in water tank (who didn't die), he was released by police for lack of evidence.

All thirty children sexually assaulted and killed by him belonged to the poor labor class which remained the reason for less media coverage and police inaction in all these incidents. The poor parents couldn't pressurize the police and the society in a way middle and higher class did even in the petty cases of misbehaving with them. This case has exposed the inequality in our police system. The height of the inefficiency of police could also be judged from a case of assaulting and killing of a girl child in Hathras, U.P confessed by Ravinder Kumar in which U.P police had closed the case with the arrest of that girl's father and filing the charge-sheet against him in the court.

It is also hard to digest that police investigations in all these thirty cases brought out nothing concrete regarding these cases. Why Ravinder did these crimes is a matter of another debate but how he escaped them all so easily is a matter of concern. The Delhi police who ranked itself among the best police force in the world and who is now patting its back for arresting Ravinder Kumar is unable to explain his freedom even after thirty killings which he has admitted so far. The toll may increase further as he speak more about his life and crime until then thank god for this precious life and pray for safety of children from such psycho killers.
