RIP Robin Williams!

So pay attention. This matters, as much as #Iraq and #Gaza. Differently, but as much. Do not condemn those who seemed unmoved by Gaza or Iraq but appear to be paralysed by the death of someone they’d never met. You’re on dangerous, holy ground if you’re with them. With all respect to the “#HonoraryJew” and his decision to end his own life, #RobinWilliams and condolences to his family and all fans, while I express grief and sorrow for the entertainer who made my childhood fun. I cannot help but connect the two issues, since his death, and prior to his death, his support to the State of Israel, I personally think that the survivors of the #ISIS attack in Iraq, Syria and the Gaza, survivors of the #Israel‘s offensive attack should all pause their grieving and mourn the death of the Oscar-winning actor who took his own life this Monday, at his luxury home in the exclusive town of Tiburon, just north San Francisco. Afterall they know how it is to lose a loved one better than anyone else around; After all doesn’t his suicide deserve to be trending all over the media, than the mass slaughter of innocent people.

Let’s face it.

The whole world is posting about India. Some about the antecedent, others about the prevalent…and even more scuttlebutts about the future. Everyone around is celebrating Independence Day… A day to be remembered? Those who rebelled against the law of the land then, their tales are chronicled today. We take pride in listening to them.

But what were all those sacrifices for? Dozens of you may answer – An Independent Country! That’s what has been sold to us since 1947. That’s what we believe. That’s our credence. But unfortunately that’s not the truth. WAKE UP! It’s NOW or NEVER. It was Do or Die… It was never Rebel or Accept “Her Majesty”…

At a rally of Indians in Burma, July 4, 1944, A man who’s death is still a mystery said somethings, he said

give me blood and i promise you freedom

It wasn’t that simple one liner we hear all the time, It was a rhetoric bombast, the undue use of exaggeration was for liberation. It was for liberty, Liberty of each and every Individual.

The man who walked with mere 78 men on March 12, 1930 covering a distance of over 390 Kilometers to pick a lump of salty mud and declare

“With this, I am shaking the foundations of the British Empire.”

He then boiled it in seawater, producing illegal salt. He implored (by then) his thousands of followers to likewise begin making salt along the seashore, “wherever it is convenient” and to instruct villagers in making illegal, but necessary, salt. What did he want to signify? Why did he want to shake the foundations of British Empire? It was for liberty, Liberty of each and every Individual.The British Empire did not give liberty.

What many of us don’t understand till today is the very cause -why we did not want the British to rule India? Most of the Indians today are buying the reason that they did not belong to the mother-land and so they did not have the right to rule. I am sorry, I am not a party to it.

Studying the coherent past of accounts, studying the history, What I understand is that we wanted Liberty, We wanted freedom to do things as a single human. We wanted freedom to do things as a nation, an indivisible entity.

Nobody back then was in combat to decide who they want to be ruled by?
They were in battle for independence. Not to just over throw one tyrant over another.

If the whole issue was that only Indians could rule India. Then the Mughals when invaded India and ruled over centuries would have faced analogous rebellions across the country. But NO. In fact the very same history books state that they were in agreements with the Maratha Kings and other leaders of the nation then. Are Indians racist? Oh… May be they did not want the “White” to rule them.

Wake up! All we wanted is Freedom, Independence – Liberty. The Mughals did not treat India as a colony. They did not treat the Indians as slave. They sat with Indians on the same level. They did not deny the Indian Nation of any freedom.

So one thing I say with freedom from doubt -Back then we did not want the British to leave because they were foreigners but because they denied the freedom we wanted. They treated us like slaves.

Now with this being crystal clear… Let’s face the fact that the Independence day we are celebrating today makes no sense, and anyone with the little common sense in their medulla oblongata will understand this. One really does not need to be a highbrow.

We are the largest democracy of the world. We take pride, We boast of it.
But do we really have the freedom.

Let’s see on paper… It says “Fundamental Rights in India”

The right to equality
The right to freedom
The right to freedom from exploitation
The right to freedom of religion
Cultural and educational rights
The right to constitutional remedies
The right to Education

Holy Lord. It’s a serious mockery of those who shed their blood for all the above rights. It is lamentable.
How deplorable it is? We call it 63 Years of Independence, We did not have a day of it. Only thing replaced was the person who treats us like slaves.

Many of you may wonder what I am saying, others might say oh! we are in a democratic country and we do have independence.. there are certain issues that exist.. but I am independent… lol… it’s the best way to fool one self…. I say look at the man in the glass, If you can say to him today morning when you get up the following sentences and mean them. I salute you then.

Just say the following

I, an Indian, on the day of Independence, declare that I have the right to equality. I am considered equivalent to a brother-citizen no matter which part of India I go. There ain’t any reservations and quotas in the colleges I get admitted too, Because Equality is above all. No matter who I am -Hindu, Muslim, Gujrati or Marathi, I am not preferred over anyone. Religion, Tribal and Regional quotas don’t really exist, cause the Law hasn’t recognized them. That’s why I can go purely on my merit anywhere. To any university, To any company anywhere I want. So I say that I have my first right “Right to Equality”

As for my “Right to Freedom” is concerned. I am an entirely free man. If I am doing anything which is not against the LAW. I face absolutely no problems. When I abide by all the LAWS. I have to pay nothing extra, No bribes to get my work done. I don’t even face any delays to my work. No one can just sit over my file for months. I am a free man, because the hard earned money I get can be spent the way I want. I am never questioned by the government on why I spend like that. They TAX system is absolutely something that I understand, because the more I earn the more I pay is well practiced and there are no loop holes in the system that make it vice-versa. I am a free man because I can meet the Prime Minister of the country when ever I want.

Coming to my third fundamental right that is “freedom from exploitation”. It’s totally with me. No one in this free country has the power to detain me without a reason. There is no corruption here, So there is no exploitation. I take pride in saying that in Independent India, I have never been exploited by the LAW. Be it the Passport office, The Hospitals or the Municipality. Keeping the Police and the Court of Justice above all.
I am free from any exploitation or at least I can fight any in the Legal court knowing that it won’t go on for years.

Oh.. and Yes.. My Right to Freedom of Religion is respected throughout the nation. If I choose to be a Muslim. The Bajrang Dal, VHP or RSS does not come knocking at my door to beat the shit out of me and my family or I will never be slaughtered alive in Gujrat atleast the Cheif Minister won’t let it happen. If I choose to be a Sikh, There really won’t be any Jagdish Tytler backed as a member of parliament in the ruling party of the country. If I choose to be a Hindu I won’t have to buy a VIP or a regular pass to get in-to a temple. They treat us all equal. As a Hindu. I feel I am safe in this country and not a soft target of Indian Mujahideen, Because the government is synonym to Justice, when they catch terrorist alive like Ajmal Kasab and Afzal Guru their execution is not delayed for political gains but the moment one is proven guilty they are punished all in the duration mentioned by the Law books it self. So I really have faith in the government and face no problems showing my passport and telling my name at the airport. I was never picked up and scrutinized because My name is Khan.

The political parties in the country here really respect my cultural and educational rights. Because I am free to do my Chatt Pooja at Juhu Beach without any confrontation with Raj Thakery. As a North Indian I can work any where in Maharashtra even in or with the BMC. If I choose not to learn Gujrathi in Gujrat and Marathi in Maharashtra the Education board does not have any problems. It is not a compulsory subject. No matter where in India I go, The government officers are never racist. They never delay my work because I am from a particular state or I speak a particular language. Even in the Court of Justice. When I demand a copy of my Charge-sheet in my mother language, I get it at no cost.

Rights to constitutional remedies is one thing I craved for. I have that now. The Media is regulated so well by the government of my country that If I have a case in the Court of Justice to be held. The Media will wait for the Judgement and not just defame my image before the judgement. The Lawyers are so co-operative that they don’t really think that they are doing a favor to me. They fight for Justice and not play with words in court to mock the system. I can go till the supreme court and I am assured I will get justice before the person responsible for the crime dies. I am proud of the fact that Justice is above all in my country and laws are not manipulated by the corporates to acquire land and wealth of the poor for absolute nothing.

and the much spoken Right to Education is a really affordable right. My country’s great. It sponsors education. I give no donation to any institute in spite of having a good merit score. It’s my right. There ain’t any quotas in colleges for acquiring education. Money doesn’t really play a big role in my country when it comes to getting knowledge -that’s cause it is my fundamental right.

I could face the man in the glass. I said it with out even a pause. I am independent and so I proudly celebrate my Fundamental Rights today.

What about the premorse of Kashmir? Oh.. Who cares?
What about Palestinians? – What Should I do about it? It’s not even in India.

If you have realized the TRUTH. If you have realized what I am trying to convey.
Don’t let the sacrifice of more than a million people go waste. They did not fight to replace rulers.
They fought for liberty. We still don’t have the liberty!

The struggle is not yet over. We the youth of India have to face this truth. The sooner we do. The faster we can commit to actions and happiness can be pursued. It’s time to revolt. It’s time to wake up. It’s time to fight for the very fundamental rights mentioned above. It’s time we fight corruption at it’s root level. It’s time we have leader in the honest sprite of liberty and freedom. It’s NOW or Never. It’s DO or Die.

sitting 400 Kilometers away from the Financial Capital of India….
Trying to wake India today to the truth. WILL NOT HELP – I know.

If you agree to what I say. Let’s do something today.
Something that shakes the government to the roots. [Just like the British Empire was]
Something that will give us freedom in all senses.

Call it a Political Movement… It will be suppressed – I Know.
But all tyrants have oppressed and people have had sleepless nights- [HISTORY]

The same man who walked kilometers to Dandi for liberty said

“Be the change you wish to see”

Let’s be the change, till the last breath of oxygen and last drop of blood.
I want all those who think can contribute to CHANGE to INBOX IDEAS >>

and It’s not for India, Not for Palestine, Nor for Kashmir or any other disputed land…
It’s for the Independence of Humans. It’s for Humanity.

Let’s have a flag for Humanity raised today.

By the way, I love this world more than one particular region here….and having said that I am more attached to India as anyone would love ones motherland. The title was just made catchy to attract your attention to our independence. It worked well 😉

Israeli troops occupied Gaza ..

Posted in Random by Ali on June 6, 2009

i found this for today….tracing all of you back to the roots… June 6th the year 1967 ….

Life in Gaza Before—and After—the 1967 War
By Mohammed Omer

“AYYAM ZAMAN” is Arabic for the “old days”—a time before occupation, checkpoints, dodging bullets from Israeli military snipers, seeking shelter from the steel rain of incoming hellfire missiles or from deafening sonic booms. It was a time when tanks did not prowl the streets or bulldozers crush homes and people to death. A time when fishermen fished freely off Gaza’s coast, farmers grew their crops, children attended school, lovers married, families grew and businesses prospered as they had for thousands of years. Ayyam Zaman describes an era where borders existed without a single checkpoint, razor fence or military unit in sight.

Then, on June 6, 1967 everything changed.

The Israeli people were told they were under “imminent danger,” with a pre-emptive strike against Egypt, Jordan and other Arab nations their only hope. In truth, the Israeli government deliberately lied to its own people; the invasion had been planned years earlier. Declassified American intelligence reports for May and June 1967 prove Israel’s sole threat was the realization of peace with Egypt—because peace kills the Zionist dream of a Jewish-only greater Israel, the driving ideology behind Zionism since 1897. By 1973 several Israeli officials had confirmed that Israel was under no threat. In 1982, as Israeli invaders laid siege to Beirut, Prime Minister and former terrorist Menachem Begin described the 1967 aggression as a war of “choice.”

That the Six-Day War was launched under false pretenses serves as little comfort to the millions of people in the West Bank, Gaza and Golan Heights, however, who watched their lives transformed from ones of freedom to oppression in less than a week. Nor could they have known that, 40 years later, most would still be living under apartheid, increasingly at risk of starvation, and enduring an ever-more sadistic and deadly occupation, protected, endorsed and supplied by the one nation founded upon human rights and democratic values—the United States.

Yet even reality cannot steal one’s past. Elderly Gazans remember life under Egyptian rule rather than Israeli occupation. Mustapha Al Jamal, known as Abu Kamal, was born in 1932. The father of eight sons and four daughters witnessed everything from the same home he lives in today. How is his life different, then and now? “Before ‘67 we lived in peace,” Abu Kamal recalled. “All of it [Gaza] was open land. Egypt was open to us. There were no borders, no customs…I could take the train from Gaza to Cairo. We had two trains per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.’

Pausing for a moment, he gazed south, taking a long, deep breath while motioning at the horizon.

“But now,” he lamented, “Gaza is under siege. Wherever you go, anywhere, it’s closed by the Israeli occupation.”

Abu Kamal continued: “Our curriculum was Egyptian before ‘67, as was our currency. Israel eliminated the Egyptian currency and required that we use Israeli currency. Then they imposed a curfew in order to do a census of the Palestinians. We were then issued identification cards by the Israeli Liaison Office.

“Of course, we are still occupied,” Abu Kamal pointed out, sitting in his barber chair—the same one he owned over 40 years ago. “But today the occupation is much more aggressive than it was in 1967, much more aggressive. When Egypt was defeated in ‘67, Israel took the stage, seizing control of Gaza, thus ending both Egypt’s administrative and civil control, including the Palestinian police. Today I fear walking in the streets because of shooting and chaos.”

Like many people who today live in Gaza, Abu Kamal originally came from an area in what is now known as the state of Israel, the village of Yebna. Beginning in December 1947, David Ben-Gurion, Menachem Begin and other Jewish terrorists instituted a campaign of ethnic cleansing designed to remove non-Jews from the land coveted by the Zionists. Many of the refugees ended up in Gaza, which was safe at the time.

Abu Kamal, like most of those displaced 60 years ago, hopes to return to his original home. If not him, then his grandchildren.

Nehad Al Shiekh Khalil, an historian and lecturer at Islamic University, remains ambivalent on the question of before and after. “I can’t say life was better for Palestinians in Gaza prior to or after 1967,” he stated. “However, occupation has created the worst Gaza of all times.”

When asked about major differences between pre- and post-1967, he elaborated, “For me, the most important to mention is the destruction or usurpation of Gaza’s natural resources and thus our self-sufficiency and ability to trade. For example, our water. The [Mediterranean] sea provided the backbone for Gaza’s economy, so Israel instituted policies that removed our ability to live off our resources, such as preventing fishing and refusing to allow Palestinians to trade or sell goods to other countries.” (Palestinian goods must pass through Israel by Israeli law, and Palestinians must accept whatever Israel decides is “fair market value.”)

In addition to limiting freedom of movement, restricting trade and destroying Gaza’s natural resources or access to them, Israel also has decimated a thriving economy over the past four decades. Prior to 1967 Gaza exported citrus, carpets, pottery, embroidery, textiles and woven fabric throughout the world. The elimination of Gaza’s industries transformed the small coastal strip from a wholly independent into a dependent society.

“After ‘67,” Khalil explained, “Israel controlled Gaza’s economy and all trade, within and out. By doing so it forced Palestinians to live on foreign aid. I can state that before ’67 there existed for Palestinians civil laws defining the relationship between different authorities in Gaza City. We had an economy and civilized culture that suited the population at the time. All of this was torn down by the occupation.”

Recalled 62-year-old Umm Al Abed Abu Sada, a mother of 14, one of whom is currently in jail: “Before ‘67 we had peace of mind. My husband used to build houses of mud. Life was much cheaper. Even the dowry required for marriage was less. Now everything is so expensive and the roads are closed. I am unable to go to Egypt for medication. Before, I could go anywhere.”

On a practical note, she added, “In the past, we used to cook daily. Now, one day we cook an okay meal. During the rest of the week we eat leftovers or a meal not so good.”

Asked before leaving his barber shop if he thought life will ever return to what it was before, Abu Kamal responded by opening his hands with both palms to the sky. “Inshallah (God willing),” he replied. “I hope so.”
