Nice story telling of Muslim offender 'Shahnawaz Khan, a Samajwadi Party worker, with white Scorpio' and muslim victim Amroz the sweatshop worker. And others followed later.
But like others partial JNU type communists, you did see only Muslims as victims. Did you try to find out the real reason behind the riots - several cases of gang rapes of non-jats Hindu girls including Dalits girls in Shamli and Muzaffarnagar. All it happened in precedent months. One girl was even burnt alive by 5 muslim rapists.The real reason was not even these gang-rapes, the actual reason was UP police dint take proper action against offenders as they were muslims. Azam Khan has reportedly directed police, not to register serious FIRs against Muslims.
When these sex offenders started targeting Jat girls, the situation escalated as Jats were able to respond to the crime against their women.
Even the riot triggering after-Jumma gathering which was to scare local Hindu population by Kadar Rana and other 'secular' MP, MLAs of secular parties, is missing from the story. First blood of returning Jats and non-Jats from Hindu Mahapanchayat by killing them with AK47 is also missing from the narratives. One-sided story-telling is either to mislead the readers or to downplay the crimes like communal riots!
I was hoping that 'Open Magazine' would investigate the events and publish a real story but sad to see you too recycle the communal stale propaganda of communists.
Between, I find no word on 5 Lakhs compensation ONLY to Muslim victims by Akhilesh Yadav govt. Don't you see the state govt is a clear criminal here? You might keep write the story suitable to your 'patron' govt, but that does not change the reality. Next time, please be balanced and specific at least to the truth.

In recent years, there have been several exposes of the media-government collaboration. Some of them have been even shaming the profession of journalism. Nira Radiia, B. Dutt and many others found working in favor of ministers and the government. This nexus has been very useful for the government, as they can get away with biggest graft charges easily. After all, common people have short term memories like gold fish! One of such media guy rise up to PMO and become OSD with media in charge to PM.
When everyone, among media houses and the intellectual – liberal class was silently endorsing every act of the government, Pratap Bhanu Mehta (@pbmehta ) had a late realization of it and came up with this article 'While we were silent'
There is a saying in Hindi which reads, "Ek to chori, upar se seena jori." The UPA government is exactly doing the same, when OSD to PMO Mr Pankaj Pachauri blamed eminent academician and columnist Prof P B Mehta as 'he was sleeping while India progressed'.
When I pointed out this act of 'arm-twisting' to Pankaj (@PankajPachauri) he gave me PMO Report of Progress.
Going by the title itself, Mr Mehta has admitted that entire 'intellectual' tribe was silent on every mis-governance of UPA during all these years. As he admits his crime, he has been silent all these 9 years of loot and scams. This article is too little and too less!
However, Mr Mehta is one of the few intellectuals who don't always repeat govt lines. Though he had been critical to many policy blunders by the government, but He had never been this vocal to point out the daring dictatorship of the UPA government.
While studying this 9 year UPA govt report card, first thing one may notice is its lousy compilation, it appears like a total TRASH! What a CRIMINAL attempt to blur the figures in graphs which are adverse to the government & clearly type the good ones! For example – Page 6 & 7. I had never thought, that the highest office of the government would do something like this! Unethically, the Data sources are missing in most of the graphs.
As raised as first point by Mr Mehta, the road sector conditions in PMO report are same as his article. As per this report, it remained almost stagnant. Ref. Page 53, first graph.
In its infrastructure section PMO report has wickedly highlighted the annual passenger number. Any rise in number of people does not indicate better facility. Rather it shows lack of facility. Yet, its being claimed as achievement. But did govt produce people?
As per this @PMOIndia report, investment increased 10 folds, but rural roads grew not even twice, tells story of leakage.
On airline sector, this report remains silent on that, every Indian would agree with Mr Mehta as UPA destroyed it totally!
Coming down to the Power sector, We just faced world's largest & longest blackout, thanks to UPA govt. Though Mr Mehta dint even mention this, people of India are not going to forget this so easily. On energy, Mehta is right on faking act of govt in capacities & actual generation. PMO report also speak only about capacities, remain deceptive about real power generation.
Sluggish rise in per capita power consumption push India much behind as world has risen faster! What is this? Progress or cheating?
On Education: tall claims of the report assert only mismanagement as stated by Mr Mehta, creating IITs but no quality. First time in history of education, there's no taker for IITs. It's a real shame in name of higher education. Though, Mr Mehta forgot to mention arbitrary "communal freebies" distributed by UPA without any result. UPA government used even higher education to carve its vote-bank
On industry sector also PMO report tells same story as narrated by Mr Mehta, UPA has planned to kill it. Other points on NREGA and Agriculture tell the same story.
Coming down to the freedom of expression, Mr Mehta observed, "enacting colonial sedition acts on dissents while letting Congress Party official Digvijaya Singh say anything against political opponents" - it has proved that UPA has taken India back to colonial era.
In order to forgo all its misdeeds, grafts, scams and failures, UPA government has retorted to tactics of 'secular blackmail' along with tactful use of CBI against Mulayam Singh and Mayawati. Mulayam Singh has accepted this publicly. All these gray acts on political front don't add to any progress either. It appears that we have moved from democracy to total authoritarian form of government.
The comparative study of PMO report and Mr. Mehta 's article proves that Mr Mehta is right in every claim. Government may gag dissenting intellectuals by arm-twisting, keep other in kitty by buying but even international reports disagree with the official conclusion of progress by UPA government during 2004 – 2013.
Human Development Index by UNDP tells that India is getting backward in terms of human development. Rank among nations was 127 in 2004, it is now 136 ! TEN place fall in global rank of Human Development! Is that call progress?? It can't be defined as progress in any sense!
Not only that, India has fell in Press-Freedom Index as well. During the same time, the Global Hunger Index says India remain within 'Alarming' categories along with several African states.
With all these obvious decline of the India's position, I am sure, could have written much stronger article on this purposefully imposition of backwardness. Yet, he was arm-twisted by Mr Pachauri.
Just to remind this OSD to PMO, we are not sleeping; neither we are ignoring the authoritarian behaviour of UPA government. Let this information reach to the people and they will treat you in best possible ways!
So, Mr Pachauri, please don't do 'arm-twisting' on #SocialMedia because, over here we are the public, and we know everything!
Bali is amazing country. Beautiful country, honest and sincere people and above all they have protected their dharma and tradition with all will and commitment.
By Himalayan efforts, untiring hard-work and motivation from Swami Vigayananand ji, around 150 Hindu Youths are here from 11 different countries to participate in World Hindu Youth Congress, 2013. It was first day, and we all got huge treasure of information, knowledge and ideas to arise and organize the Hindu society.
As the motto of the conference reads: "Arise Arjuna" - A call for all Hindu youths to arise from the ignorance and apathy, get organized and lead the society.
Its wonderful to meet Hindus from all over the world, and specially from Bali. The session was started with the reciting of Bhagwat Gita, Chapter 2 sloka by Bhavin. Followed by energizing address by the governor of Bali, Mangku Pastika.
Mr governor call for arise and defend Hinduism by every possible way. He proudly proclaimed that being the governor of Bali, he is also governor of Hindus. I was particularly amazed. First time in my life I am listening to a head of state calling upon Hindus to unite.
Seriously! Not even the hardcore right-wing, Hindutva brand politician from my country Bharat, which also has the largest Hindu population in the world, would say like this. Apathy towards Hindu identity in India would go only when we have a leader like him. Hopefully someday!
कितनी बड़ी विडम्बना है जीवन की,
हम एक बड़े कल की उम्मीद रखते है...
और जिंदगी हर दिन सिमटती जाती है॥
सपने हमेँ सोने नहीं देते,
और बेबसी जीने नहीं देती...
दुनियादारी में मानवीय मूल्योँ की बोली लगती है,
देवता बनाने वाला प्यार, बंदिशेँ बना देता है. अपनी गलतियाँ अच्छी लगती हैँ...
क्या हम 'हम' रह जाते हैँ? या खुद़ से अनजान बन जाते हैँ.. ॥

यहाँ जाने लोग कैसे जी लेते हैँ,
खीस उठती है मगर पी लेते हैँ...
सबकी यही आप बीती है,
झुके रहना यहाँ की नीति है.
हर तरफ जिँदे मूर्दे छाये हैँ,
कल के लुच्चे मंत्री बन आये हैँ
प्रजातंत्र का यह कैसा अंधेर है,
ऊपर वाले राजा बाकी सब बटेर हैँ...
प्रदेश मेँ रहना है तो अवसरवादी बनेँ,
बहुजनवादी नहीं तो समाजवादी बनेँ...
