Funny Campaign Advertisements

The defensive posture of the Congress is really amusing. It is trying to convince people with statements that even Congressmen cannot convince themselves with. The latest of these is 'Congress does not have a problem if Afzal is hanged'. Here we don't even have to ask why he hasn't been hanged till now. It is all so obvious. Then there is the Swiss bank accounts issue.
All I have seen this elections is that Congress has initially denied everything that BJP accused it of. But then it surrenders with lots of ifs and buts added. It has made a joke of itself. Our 'strong' PM acknowledges that there are links between terrorists across the border and Indian terrorists belonging to a particular community (read Muslims). So he devises a solution : community policing is the best thing to do. Ok, we accept this partly....but can the PM please tell us what if community policing fails or it does not happen? What is the role of the state?
The economy was fine and now the PM will revive it in 100 days if voted to power. What has he been doing all these months? He had much more than 100 days available to him.
Grow up Congress men....people of this country have much sharper intellect than you think they do. You are insulting them if you think otherwise. I get to watch some campaign advertisements of the Congress on TV and really...they are better than the best comedy shows on air. Some of them are:
1. Prices are falling - vote for Congress
2. Na main Hindu hoon, na Musalman, na Sikh, na Isai - main ek Bhartiya hun - Vote for Congress. This one definitely needs a big correction. It can be tweaked like this: main ek Bhartiya tha...par mujhe Musalman, Isai banaya Congress kya main Congress ko vote karoon?
3. Another ad is on the lines of the above ad. Here I would say - Party jo mile hue rangon ko alag kare ek hi hai - Congress . So don't vote for Congress.
4. This one is the funniest: Join/support Congress in fighting terrorism.

TOI-My God, I am so sick of this newspaper. Only voices that support the Congress or its allies and are against the BJP are covered by its reporters. As if the opinion of others doesn't matter. One thing I would definitely like to say to TOI - YOU ARE UNFIT TO RUN THE LEAD INDIA CONTEST. You are the least bothered about this country and its welfare. So stop this gimmick.
Another characteristic of Congressmen including Kapil Sabil I have noticed is that they don't have the basic etiquettes of debating. They never let the other person finish what he has to say. I know this is a sharp tool for fooling some people....but others can make out. So before you go out to debate..go back to school and learn the rules. You only spoil your already spoilt image.

Featured BJP campaign video

Questions posed by Dinesh Parikh (member of Swabhimaan) to the UPA
What replies do you have for so many terrorist attacks in your 5 years term? Kandhar is in Taliban ruled Afghanisthan, Ithink you are not that poor in Geography, so no fool will think of a military strike there, and at that time we had a SANE person as PM,unlike now.What Measures You have taken on Security level so that the incident like 26/11 does'nt happen again??Why is that the Blue Eyed Boy of Madam Sonia,M K Narayanan NSA advisor not been Sacked??I don't know how easy and early You have forgotten a Highly inefficient Home Minister from your party? He was so soft that if he would have still continued as a Minister, terrorist would have pleaded to him to become tough and show some action against them!!! Ya Madam, why is it that always he used to go for a Dress change before visiting a Terror attack Spot?? Madam, hyou ever seen the Inflation Graph, in your tenure? I don't think so! It went so high that watching it shooting up in the sky 90% the population had pain in the neck. What did "aam admi"(as you said) got out of Nuclear deal?? Do you remember Shri A. Raja of DMK from your Native State, then You must be remembering SPECTRUM too?? Do you have any Answers for Spectrum allocations??? You had earmarked a huge amount in crores for Farmers welfare then Why so many framers from Maharastra and Andhra Pradesh (both the state ruled by Congress)had to commit Suicide? Do you have any reply for this suicides? What exactly soniaji means by "AAM ADMI"? Are we the citizens don't have any self respect? In My Matru Bhoomi no one is AAM everyone are special in one way or other, even a poorest of a poor has self respect, so please call citizens as "Bharatiya Nagrik" which sounds more respectful than Aam Admi. Why in your full 5 years term, you have not hanged Afzal Guru even when the Supreme Court had passed its Verdict to hang him?
Why congressmen and Madam Sonia is Afraid of Varun Gandhi, you know pretty well that he is efficient and able than your own Partying Jack Rahul, who is not worth for even a Handful of Peanuts. See how well your Stooge Navin Chawla is showing his Loyalty toward's his Master's...When You have created so much Hue&cry for Varun's speech, what Action You have initiated against your minority cell National Chief Imran Kidwai for His HATE speech at Chandigarh,If Criminals are not allowed to contest elections then Varun has not yet been Charged for any offence,and as per Model code of conduct it should be more than 2yrs sentence.Madam what you have to say about your ally JMM chief Shibu Soren??Is he not a convict in murder charge for which he had resigned his portfolio as a Coal Minister then what made you to support him as a CM of Jharkhand??Do you think he is INNOCENT??JAI HO & BHARAT BULAND is not going to bring votes to your party.. "Khudi ko kar Buland itna, ke Khuda bhi Puche teri Raza Kya hai". Hum buland honge toh Bharat apne aap Buland Hojayega, Kisi ke Jai Ho kehne se nahi Hoyega.

UPA Hall of Shame - The Puppeteer and her puppets

Sonia Gandhi : Her only interest is to save the Gaddi for her son. Let the country be damned, let the people be damned....but her son should be the PM. So she installs a number of puppets. But before telling about her puppets, let us look at the achievements of Rahul baba:
Sorry people, I tried hard but couldn't find any... In fact, I couldn't even find failures...You know why? Because he has never done anything.
Manmohan Singh: He may be good academically, and may be right for the position of Finance Minister, but as PM he just proved a chicken who can be frightened even by squeak of a squirrel. He just issued stupid statements over the Amarnath row and his govt didn't know what to do for full 2 months. Normally he knows nothing about what is happening in the country except economic and financial indicators. When he knows, he silently colludes with those who threaten the welfare of our democracy and nation. Although he came to the Parliament on a ticket from Assam, he has done nothing to solve the Assam problem.
Here are some reports of the jingoism of Manmohanomics and where it is taking us:

The middle class is reported to have rejoiced when the nuclear deal was passed. But did this middle class think about what we were surrendering? It was our nuclear deterrance, which assumes utmost importance when the UPA is making us loose the conventional war edge that we have over Pakistan. Earlier posts on this blog have highlighted how our defense and security has been neglected year after year by the UPA. The day is not far when even our sovereignty will be 'bhagwaan ke bharose'. The middle class seems to be satisfied with the reasoning given by the pro UPA media that in case of blockade or restrictions on fuel supply placed by the US, we can go to other countries of the Nuclear Suppliers Group. But the NSG countries ususally act in consultation with each other, and the most powerful of them is the US, the one that wanted all sorts of checks on us. Nuclear weapons are not simple weapons. The argument that 'we can start building/testing in face of a threat, and before imposing any restrictions on us, the NSG will examine the situation' does not hold much weight. All weapons need rigorous testing, which can take years. So should we start testing when the enemy is ready to strike? How logical is this? Our first priority should be security and second, energy. If we are prepared to switch these priorities, we should also be prepared to be annihilated. We have to fight our own wars. The US is interested in checking Pakistan today because its own citizens were killed in Mumbai, not because it loves India or the nuclear deal. None of the western countries were interested in checking jihadi elements when Kashmir was being cleansed of Kashmiri Pandits. They had their own interests to protect. In the backdrop of the threats to our national security and sovereignty, the cash for vote scam becomes all the more important. Yes, those who tried to buy votes for cash tried to sacrifice the interest of the. May they never rest in peace.
Repeatedly the Congress has given away the gains made by our security forces for either pleasing the US, the USSR or the UN. It did not take POK back even after we were victorious. Which problem has the UN resolved so far? Which war has it fought for India? NONE. It is a useless organization that can be bypassed anytime by anyone.
Union Telecom Minister A.Raja : TELECOM SCAM THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE OF. These are the charges on him : Just imagine the size of the scam : It is bigger than the Bofors, Harshad Mehta, Hawala, Ketan Parekh and Satyam scams PUT TOGETHER!!! And who is the direct perpetrator? Not stock broker, not a greedy chairman, not an arms dealer but the UPA’s Union Telecom Minister A Raja.It is huge case of Raja selling off the 2G spectrum cheaply to known parties without going in for auction thereby causing a loss to the exchequer of thousands of Crores!! And these parties who got the spectrum at dirt cheap prices are trying to pay him 60,000 crores through various indirect routes.You can get more on the scam here. Obviously he has denied these charges.
CEC Controversy : The UPA is all out to protect its man Navin Chawla. Read this to know more about him
Shivraj Patil :
The ex-Home Minister, who thought the only job of a minister is to take orders from Sonia Madam and Rahul baba. He is the one who is the cause of the Mumbai attacks, massive illegal infiltration from Bangladesh and blasts after blasts all across the country.
Centre told us to save Mulayam: CBI - This is what the UPA is all about. The UPA is an alliance that has no soul - an alliance of unethical goons that forced the CBI to sell its soul. Not only did the CBI withdrew the petition against Mulayam Singh, it is also responsible for Quattorocchi's escape in the Bofors case, flip-flop on corruption cases against Mayawati. It had also not challenged the acquittal of Laloo Prasad Yadav in the fodder scam.
Arjun Singh:
This HRD Minister is also not far behind in destroying our education system. Rushed to Jammia to side with Muslims and repeatedly asking for a probe in the Jammia encounter . This is an insult to Shri M.C Sharma. Drops proposal for modernising content of madrasa education for UPA's Muslim vote bank. Any madrasa educated person who has studied only Islamic subjects can get a CBSE equivalent certificate because of his 'generosity'. Started 8 new IITs in make-shift colleges!!
A.K Antony : This defense minister could not figure out how to use the Rs. 16000 crore allocated for defense. We did not have the equipments required to wage a war, so here is the reason why the country could not go to war with Pakistan.
Antulay: What to say about him? He has brought himself enough infamy already.
Mulayalam Singh: This SP member is being protected by the UPA for his party's support to it during the no-confidence motion.
Amar Singh: Another SP member who ridiculed martyr M.C Sharma for his vote bank politics.
Chidambaram: Doubts whether Modi has contacts with Pakistan for his remark on UPA's vote bank politics and refusing to even consider that local help could have been provided to 26/11 terrorists. Who is Chidambaram trying to fool????? Its the likes of Antulays who can have contacts with Pakistan, not a patriot like Modi. Chidambaram needs to go through this link definitely - (

Mahavir Prasad: This Union Minister has been booked in a murder case. The case was registered on the direction of the Allahabad High Court under section 120 B IPC (conspiracy) against the Union minister for micro, small and medium Industries in Gagha police station

This is how the Congress stays in power - a reminder of the emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi to save her political career:

Will continue updating this list...need some more time...

Questions you should ask the Congress/UPA :

Here is something about Congress men....I think that this a reasonable ground for banning the Congress

UPA fails horribly on the security front

The UPA with Sonia at the helm and puppets like Manmohan Singh (who otherwise is good at finance & economy) have constantly neglected defense and internal security matters. Barely two months after the Mumbai attacks a number of reports have exposed the loopholes in our security apparatus. The UPA fails to recognize the fact that development and security go hand in hand. One cannot be compromised at the cost of the other. What is the use of building up an economy which we cannot protect from dangers within and outside the country? Does the UPA need to be explicitly told to cut off all ties with Pakistan? How dumb can it get?

Significance of Bangladesh Mutiny :

Given below are some links that expose the gaping holes in our defense and internal security setup:

the list is getting longer with each passing day.....’-drive-to-doom.html

This one is the most disgusting....know why the PM kept saying 'we don't war'.

When Muslim clerics from Azamgarh led a rally asking for a probe in Jammia encounter, I realized that this section of Muslims might raise their voice against terrorists from Pakistan, but when it comes to Indian terrorists from within their community , they are ready to humiliate even martyrs. Disgusting!!!!

Mangalore Pub Attack

The recent attack on some girls at a pub in Mangalore has raised some doubts. I would like to clarify that Swabhimaan does not support such hooliganism and moral policing. This group has not been formed for any kind of moral policing. It is for the girls and their parents to decide what they should be doing or should not be doing. Any member of Swabhimaan who indulges in such activities of hooliganism in the name of Swabhimaan will be de-registered from the group and we cannot be held responsible for his/her acts.
This issue is not dying down. There are those that argue that noodle straps, exposing, current movies, fashion shows are all against our culture. Their point is valid and such things should not be encouraged. But to discourage such things, one has to win over the heart and minds of people. As the last resort, legislation can be brought in to bring about such changes. Force as an instrument will fail and there will be backlash against it. If pubs are against our culture, bring a legislation against them. Ordinary people cannot be given the freedom to rough up anyone for any reason, more so for a freedom that is legally given to them. We need to think about other ways by which people can be drawn back to their roots. If you have any suggestions for this, please leave a comment.
The media is not far behind in degrading our culture, including some widely circulated newspapers. They are promoting obscenity. One hand, they shout at top of their voices against molestation and rapes, and on the other hand they carry obscene pictures. They are actually promoting degradation of minds. They cannot always come up and say that minors are also raped and they don't dress up provocatively. It is this kind of content that is thrown at people regularly which aids in development of such heinous and perverted mentality. The media is good enough only for shouting at the top its voice & asserting its rights, but it has never accepted its responsibility.

Dangerous move : Madrasa education = CBSE education

On 21st Jan, 2009 Economic Times reported the following :
Some other links:
This is a very dangerous move. There is no commitment on any board that can monitor the content of the Islamic teachings.There won't be any standard criteria for passing. According to the Deobandis, the madrassas are there purely to produce Islamic scholars. How can the Madrasa educated people be given CBSE equivalent certificates without modernized content? This will only encourage radicalism and orthodoxy within the government. This will only increase national security threat - both external as well as internal. The madrasa educated people will also be able to apply to colleges and seek govt jobs with these certificates.
Contributed by Shri Kumar Manglam
In the interim report submitted by the committee to Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Arjun Singh; it was proposed that the 'Aalim' degrees offered by Madrasas should be recognized in all the universities for admissions into the B.A. course. The 'Fazil' degree offered by any Madrasa, Darul Uloom or Jamia should be recognized by all Universities for admissions to post graduate programmes, the committee recommended. It also suggested that Madrasa education should be covered under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA). So now IAS, IPS, military , CRPF you will find Moulvis only with religious education in Arabic and Farsi ruling India.
A major part of the existing curriculum in almost all madrasas consists of the teaching of Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh). Many of these detailed rules and laws were devised centuries ago and may have lost their relevance in today's context. As someone who has written extensively on modern fiqh issues (jadid fiqhi masail) with regard to a host of contemporary issues that were obviously unknown to the early Islamic scholars.
madrasas now give much more attention than they presently do to the principles of jurisprudence (usul-e fiqh), because while several minor fiqh details (juzuvi masail) can and do change over time, and hence require new interpretations, these basic principles are unchanging. Knowledge of these principles is essential for engaging in ijtihad or creative reflection with regard to a host of contemporary issues that were obviously unknown to the early Islamic scholars.
Months after the first set back to the Indian educational system when the Congress' central HRD minister Arjun Singh set the stone rolling for reservations (including the creamy layered ones) in higher education comes another... Just before the following general elections, Arjun Singh proclaimed that his government is tabling a bill to recognize Madrasa certification at par with that of CBSE.Madrasas have been institutions of learning, where "Islamic sciences including literary and philosophical ones are taught" (Encyclopedia of Islam - Leiden E.J.Brill). The avowed aim of madrasa education is to inculcate the belief and practice of Islam among its followers and guide them to follow the Quran (Collection of God's revelations to Prophet Mohammad) and Sunna (Traditions of the Prophet Mohammed).Madrasas in India and their workings all along remained religion-centric. Subjects related to Islam dominate its curriculum and have largely ignored the rational sciences. The ultra-orthodox teachings at the Madrasas encourage the students to isolate themselves from the national mainstream... this coupled with lack of transparency in their operation encourages several conspiracies further splintering our already divided society in this time of terror, suspicion, and hate. This is to the extent that recently the government had reportedly issued notices to keep several madrasas under watch for anti-national activities.A responsible government would need to encourage all sects and religions to join the mainstream. However, what is happening currently is far from what was expected. Recognizing and accepting religions differences is one thing and encouraging religions differences is altogether another. Today, Arjun Singh has set a very dangerous precedent by declaring that they are working on a bill to equate Madrasa certification with that of CBSE, so that the madrasa educated gentry may qualify for government jobs (read IAS, IPS, IFS etc). What is the governance model being set for the future generations? Had Raja Ram Mohan Roy had accepted the Sati system since it was the "religious belief" of the time, we may still have been living with it.Today the religious orthodoxy is being encouraged by the proposed amendment to educational law. What is going to come next... separate constitutions for the different religions? Indian Muslim organizations have for long demanded a separate Sharia law for their society. Would that be on the cards next? On the same lines as Arjun Singh's thinking, one might argue that Vedic certification too be accepted for government positions, and so should the monks studying in Buddhist monasteries.
Can some one File PIL in supreme court that why vedic, sikh, buddhists school students not get Central aid and recognize their education with equivalent degrees ?

Discussion on Conversions Post

I had added some remarks on the Conversion post, but there is a refresh problem. So, I am writing them here:
I request people to read the complete presentation and watch the videos before commenting on this post. There have been comments which have come only after reading a few lines ....if you really want to discuss, please read completely. Once again, I would say that we condemn violence. But there is something that you need to understand...charged situations lead to violence...they happened after Godhra, they happened after Swamiji's assassination. Therefore, it is very important for all communities to realize that violent acts perpetrated even by a few members of any community can create problems for the whole community. Let no one indulge in such acts. The onus should not lie exclusively with the ones who retaliate.

Here is a good write-up by a group member :

Assam : Another Kashmir in the Making?

Terrorist attacks are claiming more civilian lives in India's northeast than in Jammu and Kashmir. The region is also witnessing more insurgency-linked violence. According to latest central home ministry figures, there were 1,489 incidents of violent incidents in the northeast in 2007 compared to about 1,000 in Jammu and Kashmir.
Here we look at the reasons for terrorism in the North-East, particularly Assam, which has been a victim of a number of bomb blasts recently.

Although the IMDT Act was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2005, the deep rooted problem does not have an easy solution because of difficulties in identification, false citizenship certificates and vote bank politics.
