Negative perception of Muslims a cause of concern:  Official Kundu Committee
New Delhi: Lack of development and insufficient exposure to amenities, the negative perception of minorities particularly Muslims building up over recent past is an added worrisome trend, feels an official committee assigned to evaluate the implementation of the recommendation of Justice Rajinder Sachar Committee report and the PM's 15 point programme. Recognising that its minority related programmes were going haywire, previous UPA govt  at its fag end had constituted an eight-member committee of eminent social scientists and administrators under Prof. Amitabh Kundu to assess their impact and to recommend corrective measures. The new govt under PM Narendra Modi continued with the committee, whose recommendations will now form a corner stone of its policies towards minorities. The committee members handed over their final report to the minority affairs minister Najma Heptulla here on Thursday evening. Prof Kundu, who refused to share contents of the report, however, told DNA that unlike its previous avatars Sachar committee or Justice Ranganath Mishra Commission, they have stayed away from recommending reservations system a solution to raise the lot of Muslim community. "Reservations based on caste and religion always takes a political turn and raises hackles. Therefore, we have found a way to recommend reservations on the basis of similar profession," he said.Explaining, he said wherever Dalits and Muslims share occupation; say if they are both employed as sweepers or in similar lower stratagem professions, both of them should enjoy reservations. This will entail not more than 2-3% additions in the existing quota of reservations.Further the committee has recommended a diversity based index intervention to build an inclusive society. Not only the govt  department and public sector units(PSUs) be monitored and encouraged to give employments to religious communities across the board, a system of incentives and disincentives could be formed for the private sector as well."If a company employs persons of a particular religion, caste and gender only. It should be given a lower diversity index, which should be taken into account at the time of given any govt  contract or any other benefit to the company," Prof Kundu told dna. The index, he said should also apply to housing societies, who in sometime refuse to lend houses or flats to Muslims.Though, findings of the report were not available, sources say, it has depicted a worrying picture of Muslims in urban and non-metro cities, while expressing satisfaction on their condition in rural areas. The committee while assessing conditions on the basis of consumption pattern found Muslims a notch higher than SC/STs in rural areas, but still 10% below national average. But in urban areas they were far below than even SCs/STs.The report has found that despite much announcements of the previous UPA govt, the poverty amongst Muslims continues to work out to be twice the general poverty. Muslim OBCs have also reported higher poverty than their Hindu peers, both in rural and urban areas. "percetage of poor among the Muslim OBC is higher than the Hindu OBC by 50% in rural and 100% in urban areas," the report said. The committee has also recommended an anti-discriminatory law in line with the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities Act) to end discrimination Muslims face in their lives. DNA India
Muslims as SC, health surveys on religion and background basis: Kundu Committee
SC upholds HC order on interim insurance relief to J&K flood victims
New Delhi: In a setback to insurance companies, the Supreme Court on Friday upheld a J&K High Court order asking them to pay 95% of insured amount for policies above R25 lakh and 50% for those below R25 lakh as interim relief to the flood-affected shopkeepers, house and vehicle owners in the state. The firms claimed that they will have to shell out R9,000 crore against R5,000 crore sum insured. A bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu rejected the appeals filed by four PSU firms – National Insurance Company, New India Assurance Company, United India Insurance Company and Oriental Insurance Company – and few private insurance companies, including the ICICI Lambard General Insurance Company and Bajaj Allianz. “We are not going to interfere (with the HC order), keeping in view the tragedy. They have suffered. Let insurance companies pay... sometimes, we have to ignore rules and regulations... in the interests of those people,” the CJI said.The firms told the bench that the HC had failed to appreciate that, in many cases, they had received preliminary survey reports wherein the loss had been assessed much below the sum insured, thus paying them higher amounts would lead to“unjust enrichment and making profit out of loss in large number of claims and the same will result in defeating the basic principle of indemnity”. “...a contract of insurance is a contract of indemnity and that the insurance company is liable to indemnify the insured against the actual loss suffered subject to the extent of liability as mentioned in the insurance policy,” the insurers stated. financialexpress

Civil society group demands probe in cause of flood in J&K
New Delhi:With J&K still trying to emerge from the worst flood in decades, a civil society group Friday demanded a probe in the causes of the deluge. A fact finding report “Natural Calamity, Man Made Disaster”, by The Centre for Policy Analysis, also demanded a probe in the rescue operations by the army. The team, which comprised Tushar Gandhi, Anand Sahay and Seema Mustafa, visited Srinagar that was worst affected in the Kashmir Valley along with south Kashmir districts.“A judicial probe should be held based on well-grounded technical assessments into the causes of the flood waters entering Srinagar. Its terms of reference should include the status of the state govt ’s preparedness to cope with such a situation, and its actual performance once tragedy struck since in the perception of most people the state govt  became ‘invisible’,” the report said.It also demanded a probe by “appropriate authority into the rescue operations conducted by the military”.“Many in Srinagar attest to their effectiveness, but also complain about their prioritisation. The general belief is that the focus of rescue by the armed forces was not ordinary Kashmiris but tourists, select members of the Kashmiri elite, and migrant labourers who have been living in the valley over the years,” the report said. The report also said the framework of the probe into the conduct of the armed forces should include the work of their public relation department “which seemed to have gone into overdrive, resulting in very skewed tv coverage that has only succeeded in tilting the perception against the Army and the country”.“The electronic media played a very disruptive and vitiating role and gave reason to the Kashmiris to be hurt and angry,” it added.

Bhagwat says Hinduism not ‘ancestral property’ of Indians
New Delhi: Vice-President Hamid Ansari, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, HRD Minister Smriti Irani, Muslim clerics and a Bollywood actor — they all came under one roof on Friday to launch the international edition of Encyclopedia of Hinduism. The key message from the function was Hinduism is a global legacy, with Bhagwat saying that it is not an “ancestral property” of Indians, but it is for everyone.“Religion always unites and what divides people is not religion,” he said. Interpreting the word “dharm”, the RSS chief said it has a wider meaning than “religion”.According to Bhagwat, Encyclopedia on Hinduism, a project of India Heritage Research Foundation, would help Hindus as well as Indians answer the questions asked about the religion to the next generation and the outside world. Swami Chidanand Saraswati, the founder chairman of the IHRF and spiritual head of the Parmarth Niketan in Rishikesh, stressed that no one can stake claim on Hindu religion. Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, president All India Imams Organisation, and Dewan Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan, Ajmer Darga Sharif, said Hinduism is an “assimilative” religion.Vice-President Ansari, the chief guest at the function, spoke on the history of encyclopaedias.

Muzaffarnagar riots: SIT gives clean chit to 5 rape-accused for 2nd  time
Muzzafarnagar: SIT probing the Muzaffarnagar riots has given a clean chit for the second time to five persons accused of gangraping a woman due to lack of evidence, police said on Saturday. 5 persons Sushil, Ramesh, Ram Kumar, Devender and Jogender are accused of allegedly gangraping a 30-year-old woman on Sept.8 in Phugana village during communal riots in Muzaffaranagar and its adjoining districts last year.SIT had filed a final report in this case earlier and given a clean chit to the accused as the victim had turned hostile.The case was, however, reopened on the directive of the Supreme Court, which had ordered that statement of the victim should be recorded again before a woman magistrate. The woman had then admitted of being gangraped by 5 men before the woman magistrate and said she gave her earlier statement under pressure. SIT had once again given a clean chit to the accused yesterday citing lack of evidence. However, the victim's family has said they will challenge the SIT's clean chit in the SC. PTI
Muzaffarnagar mahapanchayat confirms religious polarization
Muzaffarnagar: Even as the Muzaffarnagar police made a breakthrough in the triple murder case by arresting 4 suspects on Friday, a mahapanchayat organized in a Muzaffarnagar village to discuss the case, confirmed the extreme religious polarization in the region that was rocked by communal violence last year. Bahadurpur village and the villages in its vicinity in Muzaffarnagar turned tense last week after three of its residents were murdered when they were returning from work. In an explicit religious tone, Virender Singh, the convenor of the mahapanchayat said, “Muslims who killed the three labourers be brought to book and the administration should not try to save any of them.”“These 3 victims were killed in retaliation of the last year’s communal riots. The manner in which the three victims were killed, can be done only be a particular group. A Hindu cannot kill anybody like this.” The mahapanchayat failed to attract a decent turnout apparently because the 3 murdered men belong to the Jatav, Valmiki (both Dalit) and Kashyap communities. The allegations made by the participants of the mahapanchayat are contrary to the version of the local police. Moreover, the tense situation might further deteriorate as all the four arrested by the police, are Muslim residents of the neighbouring Bilaspur village.thehindu

Jan Sangh founder had warned RSS of losing shine: Book
New Delhi: Nanaji Deshmukh, who was among the founders of Bhartiya Jan Sangh (BJS) and quit politics after emergency, had warned leaders of RSS that BJS, an earlier version of BJP, was transforming and losing its shine as a party with difference. He had said BJS, a “party of workers”, had become “party of leaders”. Several such facts are contained in the compilation of Nanaji’s works titled Viraat Purush Nanaji, accessed by The Indian Express. The 6-volume set will be released by PM Narendra Modi at the Vigyan Bhawan Saturday. The compilation is edited by Atul Jain and published by Prabhat Prakashan. In a reference to the situation in UP in 1967, when late Chaudhary Charan Singh left the Congress to join others to form govt, Nanaji writes, “Everybody put responsibility on me to bring Chaudhary Charan Singh out of the Congress and to make him the CM. I committed that mistake and the consequences were just as I had predicted. Our party lost the image of a party with difference…Our people rose as important leaders but we were neither able to retain our image, nor was our organisation able to remain the same. Party of workers was converted into a party of leaders.”Some of Nanaji’s letters reflect that on many occasions his views were ignored by the BJS as well as the RSS. indianexpress

Supreme Courts raps Modi govt, calls Centre 'Kumbhakarna'

Ticking off the Environment ministry for sleeping like 'Kumbhakarna', the Supreme Court made it clear that it is not going to lift the stay for setting up of new hydroelectric power projects on Alaknanda and Bhagirath river basins in Uttarakhand unless the Centre comes out with a detailed environment and ecological impact report of each of the 24 ventures.The court wanted to know why the ministry was not acting on its orders requiring placement before it of the report of the 13-member expert committee, which was asked to study environmental degradation caused by such projects.Saharasamay

Malegoan: The breakup of BJP-Shiv Sena and Congress-NCP alliances ahead of Assembly elections has thrown Maharashtra into a political chaos. The new political scenario has left voters confused. Although Raj Thackeray’s MNS has declined in stature since the Lok Sabha polls, the party is still a cause of concern for BJP and especially Sena as it will end up eating into their traditional vote banks.

People are bringing up my SIMI connection to malign my image: TMC leader Ahmed Hassan Imran
Kolkata: TMC MP Ahmed Hassan Imran has been in the eye of a storm for his alleged links with Saradha chit fund company and hardline Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami. The Rajya Sabha member speaks to Madhuparna Das about the controversy and his links with SIMI of which he was a founder member. “I joined SIMI in 1977. SIMI was founded that year to work for the Muslim community. SIMI was then exactly like Ramakrishna Mission. It used to work like Ramakrishna Mission. We used to organise “Quran path.” I was there in Aligarh when the organisation was founded. SIMI used to organise blood donation camps, set up libraries and collect funds for the education of poor students. It used to work in five to six districts of Bengal. It was a legal organisation then. I was never a member of the banned organisation,” said Imran. “I never had any connection with Jamaat-e-Islami. The student organisation of Jamaat is Student’s Islamic Organisation (SIO) and not SIMI. Moreover, why should I try to topple Hasina-led govt in Bangladesh and why Mamata Banerjee would want that? What interest she has in it? She shares a cordial relationship with the incumbent govt in Bangladesh. I have spoken to Intelligence Bureau officials and they assured me that there has been no such report against me,” he added.indianexpress

He was addressing a large Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque and said that the rulers in New Delhi had gone crazy and wanted to plunge the region into a war.
