Chinese Expanding Imperialism
With their 3.5 trillion dollar foreign exchange reserve and huge trade surplus, the Chinese have become aggressive imperialists, hungrily seeking markets and sources of cheap raw materials, particularly in poor underdeveloped countries,like ravenous wolves.. Thus the Chinese have become imperialists, seeking to plunder weak countries in Asia and Africa, like the Europeans in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
 But Chinese imperialism is expanding aggressive imperialism, like that of Nazi Germany. Therefore it is much more dangerous for Asian and African countries than traditional imperialism, which at best is defensive in nature.
 All right minded persons must therefore oppose tooth and nail the Chinese imperialist attempt to dominate our countries and grab our markets and raw materials

Conversion from one religion to another is conversion from one idiocy to another. People should convert to science and rationality
Iqbal must be condemned
I strongly object to posthumous grant of Tarana-e-Hind award to Allama Iqbal in Kolkata by Mamata Banerji. She is only eyeing the Muslim vote bank.
 Iqbal may have been a good Urdu poet but he must be condemned for throughout shamelessly supporting creation of Pakistan, e.g. in his Presidential speech of the Muslim League at its Allahabad session in 1930, and for preaching feudal communal pan-Islamic nonsense in 'Shikwa' and 'Jawab-e-Shikwa'.

Rajasthan Government surrenders to Gujars and agrees to give them 5% reservation.
 I have 2 comments to make about this :
(1) I am opposed to caste or communal reservations. In fact such reservations are doing great harm to the country by perpetuating casteism and casteist hatred. Politicians, however, benefit as they rely on such vote banks in the elections
 And how many SCs or OBCs benefit from such reservations ? Hardly .01%, and these too, of the 'creamy layer'. Most SCs and OBCs are still living in miserable conditions. The persons who are really benefited by such reservations are our crooked politicians
 What should be done is to give facilities and financial help to the poor of all castes and communities ( and there are many poor among the 'upper castes' too ).
Boys and girls of the 'upper castes' getting over 90% marks are often denied admission or jobs, while SCs and OBCs having 40% or even less get them. This naturally causes a lot of heart burning in the former. In fact it is 'reverse discrimination', which was declared unconstitutional, being violative of the equality provision, by the U.S. Supreme Court in Bakke's case in USA.
 I was told by a Principal of a Government Medical College in U.P. that he was pressurized by the Minister concerned to give pass marks to some SC students who repeatedly failed in their exams. What kind of doctors are we inflicting on society ? Will they heal the patients or harm them ? I am not saying that all SC doctors are incompetent, but those who pass their exams in Medical Colleges in this manner certainly are.
(2) I never go to vote, because my vote is meaningless. Most people in India vote in 'vote banks' on the basis of caste and religion like sheep and cattle. What value does my single vote have when we see most people in most states voting in droves and herds for their caste candidate or caste party ? Most people do not see the merit of a candidate, whether he is a good man or bad man, whether he is educated or not, etc but only the candidate's caste or religion. That is why a large section of our M.P.s and MLAs have criminal antecedents. Phoolan Devi who was alleged to have committed many murders, was elected an M.P. only because she was of a backward caste. Democracy was never meant to be run in this manner
 So thank you very much, you may have your democracy as much as you want, but please do not ask me to be a party to it

Kashmiris must keep suffering


A Kashmiri Muslim sent me this fb message today :

Good evening sir,
 I am from Kashmir. Recently  militants  in Kashmir have threatened  mobile tower land owners to make their towers disfunctional. Also, they threatened mobile showroom owners and warned them to close all such type of communications  within a week,  particularly  in North Kashmir.

Yesterday  they entered in a BSNL office and fired indiscriminately  on them resulting in  3 injured  and 1 dead on the spot. On the same day they killed a mobile  land owner.

Today about 10.15 pm. they entered  in a home and fired on a person who is now battling  for his life in hospital.  He is also a land owner of a tower.

 I am confused. There are  7 lakh troops in Kashmir but still this is happening.  Is it due to security failure or due to any other reason ?

 It is clear that if this is not stopped well on time it means mobile  companies  have to close their businesses in the valley, leaving  thousands jobless. Who is responsible ? How to tackle this ? That   is my question to you sir

This is my reply :

I am indeed deeply sad for what has happened to both Kashmiri Pandits and Kashmiri Muslims. I am a Kashmiri myself, and all Kashmiris, whether Hindu or Muslim, are my blood brothers. Therefore any atrocity or death or suffering of Kashmiris causes me great grief, and I would like peace to come back in Kashmir, and justice done to all Kashmiris.

 The problem, however, is that you Kashmiris will not listen to me. although I have patiently and repeatedly tried to tell you what is good for you.

 I have repeatedly said

(1) Kashmir is a part of India, having been incorporated into India by the great Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1587, and thereafter it remained part of India. Although there was a Maharaja, Kashmir was in effect part of India during British rule.

(2) India will not, and must not, allow Kashmir to secede from India, because if it does then next Nagas may demand secession, then Mizos, then Tamils, etc. Where will it end ? India will be broken up into pieces.

 As I said in my article ' What is India ' ( see online and on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in and on the website kgfindia.com ), India is broadly a country of immigrants, like North America, and this accounts for its tremendous diversity---so many religions. castes, languages, ethnic groups, etc. The only policy which will enable us to remain together and prosper is secularism and giving respect and equality to all communities and lingual, regional and ethnic groups, otherwise our country cannot survive for one day. This was the policy of the great Emperor Akbar, who is the real Father of the Nation ( not that fake 'Mahatma' who took the country for a ride ), and who gave equal respect to all.

(3) The only solution to the Kashmir problem is reunification of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh under a strong secular government which does not tolerate religious extremism or bigotry of any kind, whether Hindu or Muslim, and crushes it with an iron hand. It is high time that all people in our sub continent must realize the truth : Pakistan is a fake, artificial entity ( I refuse to call it a country ), created by the British and their agents, those rascals Gandhi and Jinnah, on the basis of the bogus two nation theory.

(4) All this high talk of U.N. resolutions overlook two points (a) It presumes the validity of Partition, and the genuineness of 'Pakistan', although it was a big fraud and swindle, and (b) It overlooks the fact that the U.N. is dominated by big powers which impose their will on weaker nations. Their resolutions are therefore often unfair and flawed.

I have therefore been saying repeatedly to Kashmiris what is in their interest : that they must give up their stupid demand for independence or secession to Pakistan, and instead start demanding reunification of India and Pakistan under a secular government, but my words have fallen on deaf ears. And when people prefer to remain stupid they must keep suffering

Faust and Najeeb Jung


I have described Najeeb Jung as a Faust who has sold his soul to a Mephistopheles ( the devil's representative ). Some people asked me who was Faust. So let me explain.

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend, and is the central character in the play ' Dr. Faustus' by the renowned German scholar and writer Goethe, and also of the English playwright Christopher Marlowe.

 Faust is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, which leads him to make a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and other worldly benefits.

 Najeeb Jung is like Faust, who has abandoned all sense of morality for holding on to the chair of Lt. Governor of Delhi. I have called for his resignation,  but since he has no shame he will certainly not resign.

Interview with Rahul Kanwal on #ArvindVSLG

Interview with Rahul Kanwal just concluded.

I said that on this issue Kejriwal is right since we are living in a democracy in which the people are supreme, and the people operate through their elected representatives in the legislature. How can an elected government function if it cannot have officers in whom it has confidence ?

I called Najeeb Jung a shameless man, a Faust who has sold his soul to a Mephistopheles

Bazzat Kashmiris


This well known Pashto proverb applies to me too, being a Kashmiri :

" Agar kahat ul rijal uftad, azeshan uns kamgiri
Awwal Afghan, doyam Kamboh soyam bazzat Kashmiri "
i.e.
" Although a scarcity of men should happen, do not cultivate the acquaintance of these three kinds of people:
 1st, an Afghan, 2nd, a Kamboh, and 3rd, a wicked Kashmiri "

My elders used to tell me it applies only to wicked ( bazzat ) Kashmiris, and not all Kashmiris !
 But it is for you all to decide

The Chinese chors


 Apart from becoming very aggressive in capturing foreign markets, like European imperialists in colonial days ( see my blog ' Getting kicked out of China ' on justicekatju.blogspot.in ), the Chinese have in recent years become some of the biggest chors in the world. With their huge amount of corruption money from China, many of them have bought valuable real estate in the Bay Area in California, New York, Vancouver and indeed all over North America.

  For a property worth 2 million dollars they will offer 3 million. Moreover they will pay the entire sale price immediately in down payment, instead of taking a mortgage, as most North Americans do. Naturally the sellers prefer their bids.

  A relative of mine in Vancouver where I stayed recently for a few weeks told me that a house in front of his was bought by a Chinese for 12 million dollars an year back, but the Chinese has not lived in it for a single day. Obviously the Chinese are using such real estate for parking their ill gotten wealth. They usually buy these properties not in their real name, say Li Ti Chang, but under some assumed name e.g. Thomas Liu, to avoid detection.

  Moreover the tax laws in North America are such that while one has to disclose his other assets in his tax returns, e.g. bank accounts, fixed deposits, shares, etc one does not have to disclose his real estate assets.

 The result of all this is that real estate prices have shot up in many cities in North America, and the local people are facing difficulty in buying houses, as they have become too expensive.

India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are uncivilized countries


This is an email I have received from a Muslim. I have deleted the name of the sender

Dear honorable Justice Katju,
Greetings from India!!!
I hope you are enjoying your stay in Vancouver. I am --- from Mewat(Haryana), famously known as  the land of Meos which is just 50 to 60 Kms from our Capital city.

I have been following your Facebook page since last couple of months. I am really impressed by your uncompromising stand against injustice, tyranny, oppression and uncanny desire to convey the truth fearlessly. Though I don't agree on everything that you say.

I have started to see my own country through the eyes of a victim as there has been constant threat for the existence, property and dignity of minority communities like Muslims, Christians and Dalits.
Anti-minority sentiments are rising exponentially and our great nation has been polarized like never before. I can give you many evidences to validate this statement.

Yesterday while Modi Ji was busy in celebrating Modiversary, the plundering and burning of Muslim homes, places of worship and killing of innocent children and women was going on in Ballabgarh(Haryana). This inhumane act was not even covered by mainstream media.

Another horrific incidence took place against Dalits on 16th May in Nagaur district of Rajasthan. The people of Jat community crushed 3 Dalits under tractor and derobed their women publicly. I can go on and on.

As I have started to consider you as a fighter against injustice and oppression. I ask you how we can totally stop these barbaric acts against minority communities and secure justice to all.
I look forward to receive permanent solutions to stop these inhumane and barbaric acts.
Thanks and Regards

My reply was :

 A hallmark of a civilized society is that minorities therein can live with dignity and honour. It is the duty of the majority community everywhere to ensure that minorities can live with dignity and honour.

 From that standpoint India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are not civilized societies, because minorities cannot live with dignity and honour in any of these countries
