Abolish Muslim Personal Law Board
One of the biggest obstacles to progress of Muslims, and one of the biggest facilitator in keeping them backward, and therefore poor, is the All India Muslim Personal Law Board.
 Most of its members are hard core reactionaries, who for their vested interests will not allow any changes in Muslim society, and will not allow abolition of feudal, barbaric and outdated laws,  customs and practices like burqa and oral talaq.
I regard BJP/RSS and most members of the Muslim Personal Law Board ( as well as politicians like Owaisi ) as two sides of the same coin.
India would be well rid of them
Outcome of Bihar elections
A well known senior journalist of India who is currently in Bihar covering the elections telephoned me yesterday and said that from his own assessment my prediction about the Bihar elections appears to be correct, and the Lalu-Nitish alliance is likely to sweep the polls.
 I am reproducing my earlier post

Bihar Elections: Sweep in favour of the Mahagathbandhan

I predict not just a bare victory but a sweep in favour of the Lalu-Nitish alliance in the coming Bihar elections. This is based on simple mathematics.

As I had said in an earlier post, voting in most states in India, including Bihar, is on the basis of caste and religion. The exception to this rule is when there is a wave.

In the May 2014 elections there was a Modi wave, as people, particularly the youth, were captivated by the magic slogan of 'vikas', which promised millions of jobs to our huge population of unemployed youth, whose voting age had been reduced from 21 to 18 by a Constitutional amendment of 1988.

This slogan, however has proved hollow, as jobs have not been created, and the youth have been left high and dry. While there has been a lot of big talk, hardly anything has been done by Modi except stunts like 'Swatchata Abhiyan' ( I visited Varanasi yesterday and found it as dirty as ever, and I spoke to many citizens there who said the same ), Yoga Day, etc and meaningless foreign trips which must have cost a huge amount of money and whose end result is ' khoda pahaad, nikli chuhiya'.

So the Modi wave has totally dissipated, and now voting in Bihar will be on the traditional lines of caste and religion.

Here are the caste demographics of Bihar which I got from the net :
Population (%)
OBC/EBC 51% ( Yadavs -14%, Kurmis- 4%,[24][25]( EBCs - 30%[26][27][28][29][30] -includes
kushwahas - 6% Koeris -8%,[31] Teli-3.2%))
Mahadalits* + Dalits(SCs) 16%[32][33]
Muslims 16.9%[10]
Forward caste 15% [34](Bhumihar -3%, Brahmin-5%,[35] Rajputs- 6%, Kayasth- 1%)
Adivasis(STs) 1.3% [36][37]
Others 0.4% (include Christians,Sikhs,Jains)

As per, 2011 Census of India , Scheduled Castes constitute 16% of Bihar's 104 million population.[38] The census identified 21 of 23 Dalit sub-castes as Mahadalits.[39] Mahadalit community consists of the following sub castes - Bantar, Bauri, Bhogta, Bhuiya, Chaupal, Dabgar, Dom (Dhangad), Ghasi, Halalkhor, Hari (Mehtar, Bhangi), Kanjar, Kurariar, Lalbegi, Musahar, Nat, Pan (Swasi), Rajwar, Turi, Dhobi, Pasi, Chamar and Paswan (Dusadh).[40] Paswan caste was initially left out of the Mahadalit category.[41][42] Adivasis (Scheduled Tribes) constitute around 1.3% of Bihar population.[43][44] Tribals include Gond, Santhal and Tharu communities in Bihar.[45][46]
Extremely Backward Class (EBCs) are also sometimes referred to as Most Backward Class(MBCs). There are 130-odd EBC castes in Bihar.

Yadavs and Kurmis constituting 19% and Muslims about 17% will solidly vote for the Lalu-Nitish alliance, which makes it 36%. Muslims will vote for it ( despite Owaisi, who is regarded as a BJP vote splitter by Muslims, and who will therefore not be misled by him ) because Muslims are feeling very insecure after love jihad, ghar wapasi, speeches of Adityanath, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti ( calling them haramzadas) and incidents like in Muzaffarnagar, Ballabhgarh, and the latest one at Dadri.. So they will solidly vote for the alliance.

A section of the other backward castes, say 8-10%, will also vote for the alliance, as Lalu has successfully described it as a fight between the backwards and the forward castes.

Thus the tally of the Nitish-Lalu aalliance comes to about 45% votes, which represents a sweep ( BJP got a majority in the Lok Sabha with only 31% votes )

As regards, the NDA, its support is from the upper castes, and a section of EBCs( also called MBCs ) and a section of dalits, because of Paswan, Manjhi and Upendra Kushwaha.

The upper castes in Bihar, as can be seen from the above chart, are altogether only 15%. Paswan does not have the support of all the dalits ( who are divided into a large number of sub castes) in Bihar, unlike Mayawati who has the support of almost all the dalits in U.P. So he may get the NDA about 6-7% votes. Manjhi may get 7-8% MBC votes, and Kushwaha may get 4%votes.

Thus the total tally of NDA votes is 15+7+8+4=32%
There is clearly going to be a sweep in favour of the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar

Indians collect money for Pakistani girls medical treatment.
What does this story tell us ?
It tells us that what my teacher Rousseau taught, that most people are good by nature, is correct.
This means that 99% Indians and 99% Pakistanis ( whom I regard as Indians ), 99% Hindus and 99% Muslims, and 99% people of all religions, castes, languages, ethnic groups, etc are good by nature.
But often these 99% are simpletons, and taking advantage of that the 1% wicked and cunning people ( politicians, etc ) polarize the people ( the Partitiion of 1947 was a historical swindle and massive polarization by the devilish British using their agents Gandhi and Jinnah )  and artificially spread communal and caste hatred, because of which there are riots ( as in Muzaffarnagar and Ballabhgarh ), lynchings of innocents ( as in Dadri ), and other forms of violence.

Vouliez-vous une revolucion sans revolucion ?
Shiv Sena workers poured ink on Sudheendra Kulkarni.
Many people protested that this was an illegal act
But in the situation prevailing in India today is anyone following the law ?
In this connection I may relate a historical incident.
On 29th October, 1792, during the French Revolution, a member of the French National Convention, Louvet attacked the great revolutionary leader of the Jacobins, Robespierre, viciously in the Convention, accusing him of condoning acts by the people which were illegal.
  Robespierre replied on 2nd November " I am accused of condoning acts which were illegal. But Citoyens ( Citizens ), the Revolution was illegal, the storming of the Bastille was illegal, the abolition of the Monarchy was illegal. Do you want a Revolution without a Revolution ? ( Citoyens, vouliez-vous une revolution sans revolution ? ).
I am not recommending people to break the law. But I have read enough history and law to know that when the existing legal structure does not give the people justice, the people resort to natural law and treat the oppressive man made law as null and void.
As I said in Barkha  Dutt's show on NDTV, most of our Indian politicians of all parties, are a set of rogues and rascals who should have been hanged long ago. These politicians polarize society on caste and communal lines, they have looted the country,  and have no genuine love for the country. They only want their vote banks to be intact, and for that they are prepared to stoop to any low level, even if the country goes to hell.
Should such politicians not be hanged summarily ? Is pouring ink on them sufficient ?
Navratri fast tomorrow, 13th October
There is overwhelming response by Muslims to my appeal to keep one day Navratri fast tomorrow ( 13th October ), just as there was overwhelming response from Hindus when I appealed to them to keep one day roza during Ramzan on 4th July this year.
It is just not possible for me to post all the fb messages I have received from Muslims who have said they will fast tomorrow. One of such fb messages is given below :

.प्रणाम सर जी।
आपके आदेशानुसार मैंने कल के नवरात्रि व्रत रखने का निर्णय लिया है। आशा करता हूँ आज आप एक बार पुनः लोगों से सामप्रदायिक सद्भावना एवं आपसी भाईचारे के संदेश हेतु कल व्रत रखने के लिए कहेंगे।

This shows that my message of promoting communal amity is having effect, and most people want to live in harmony, despite the nefarious designs and efforts of those vested interests who want to polarize and divide society on communal lines

Do women have kind hearts ?

Those who say that women have a kind heart have no idea of realities. While some indeed have kind hearts, many others are selfish cold cruel ruthless calculating persons who can stoop to any low levels for their self interest..

 I have already given the example of Lady Macbeth, who was determined to kill Duncan, while her husband was wavering.

In the Nazi concentration camps often the female guards were more cruel and  ruthless than the male guards e.g. Irma Griese, Dorothea Binz, etc ( see online ).

 I have heard of Judges whose wives used to collect the bribe money.

A doctor friend of mine wanted to set up a medical college, and for that wanted affiliation with a University in U.P. The wife of the Vice Chancellor of that University. demanded 2 crores for this.

AAP MLAs wives

Why did Kejriwal invite wives of MLAs too in his meeting with MLAs ? Was it to ask the wives to persuade their husbands not to take bribes ?

Kejriwal obviously has not read Shakespeare's Macbeth. It is often these wives who are more ruthless and calculating, and who persuade their husbands to do wicked things. Macbeth was wavering whether to kill King Duncan, to whom he had taken an oath of loyalty, or not, but Lady Macbeth was adamant.

Does anyone believe that the wives do not know of their husband's corruption ? In fact they usually motivate their husbands, and are the main beneficiaries of their husband's corruption. They need expensive jewellery, gorgeous saris, latest gadgets for cooking, washing etc and latest fittings in their homes. And of course a fine car and a lot of money for kitty parties. What would the poor things do without these ? And they must be provided all this since their husbands are serving the people.

So the wives of Delhi MLAs must have enjoyed the snacks served to them at Kejriwal's house, and must have solemnly nodded their heads  on hearing Kejriwal's homilies, but going back home they will surely continue in their old ways. They are not such fools to be taken away by sanctimonious lectures.

Pele is back

My favourite game has always been football or soccer.

In my young days I have played many games---hockey, cricket,, tennis, table tennis, badminton, etc ( I also boxed a lot ), and was good in them,  but my favourite was always. football.

 I remember playing football in heavy downpours of rain. Every day during the football season, which usually was from July onwards, I was on the playing field, and would come home covered with sweat. Even now when I see youngsters playing I am tempted to run onto the field and join them, but then I realize I am too old ( in my 70th year ).

 Brazil has always been my favourite team ( though this year's performance against Germany in the World Cup was very disappointing ), and Pele has always been my favourite footballer ( I regard Maradona as a cheat for using his hand to score a goal against England, though his other goal was fantastic ).

   So welcome Pele

The Lok Nayak

Today is the birth anniversary of Jai Prakash Narayan, the so called 'Lok Nayak'.

 I know I will be castigated for saying this, but I have a very poor opinion of Jai Prakash Narayan's intellect. In fact the man had no scientific ideas at all for solving the country's massive problems. I regard him intellectually as stupid as Gandhi and Anna Hazare..

 In 1954 J.P. became a disciple of another idiot, Vinoba Bhave who was being used by the Establishment to create the illusion among landless peasants that they will  be given land voluntarily by the big land holders, and so they should not start an armed struggle to get it.

No doubt J.P. headed the struggle against the despotic and power crazy Indira Gandhi, but what happened after the Janta Party came to power ? Was poverty, unemployment, malnourishment, etc abolished ? What happened to the much touted ' Total Revolution ' ? It disappeared into thin air, leaving behind his disciples Lalu Yadav, Nitish Kumar, Sushil Kumar Modi, Ram Bilas Paswan, etc. who have ruined Bihar as his legacy

Owaisi's real game

I sometimes wonder what Owaisi is really up to ? Is he really wanting to serve the Muslims, or is he working at the behest of a political party perceived to be anti-Muslim to divide the Muslim votes in elections ?. Whatever his real intentions, one thing Owaisi and his ilk, and quislings like Najma Heptulla, Shah Nawaz Husain, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, M.J. Akbar etc, must know : Muslims can no longer be befooled. They have learnt from long bitter experience
