1. Are we Traitors-betrayers: somebody whoever is disloyal or treacherous to BJP asking to reform ‘hollow- not sincere or genuine; meaningless- lacking meaning or substance, something hollow, or become hollow’ system of India?



2. Are we Traitors-betrayers asking to reform dilapidated-decaying, on its last legs, falling to pieces, ruined or decayed: Tumbledown-fall flat; ruined or dilapidated and falling down: Miserable-gloomy: Pitiable-deplorable, disgraceful, unfortunately pathetic, sad system of India?



3. Sharing: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will Eliminate the Corruption Indian Politics: “Now, only submission is to Indian voters to vote for ‘The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’ to replace or at least to disturb the existing corrupt nexus of politics of the political parties in India for your own betterment, for the betterment of country and to bring change in the corrupt system that to be based on the wishes of countrymen includes wishes of minorities in India.



4. And, the Sikh Vichar Manch feels that submission should be the only a slogan of ‘The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’ and of all Indians in the interest of our country. SHARING; AS WROTE IN APRIL, 2013”



5. “West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday, November 24, 2017 said that democracy is under threat in the country under the BJP rule and called upon Opposition parties to work together for the greater interest of the people before the next Lok Sabha polls.



6. “Democracy is under threat in this country under the present Central Government. It is a super emergency that is going on in the country. I have been an MP for nearly two decades but I have never seen such a government at the Centre,” she said at the India Today Conclave East here.



7. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, “I have good relationship with (Samajwadi Party chief) Akhilesh ji and (BSP chief) Mayawati ji in Uttar Pradesh, with Stalin ji (DMK), Naveen ji (BJP)... I maintain the best of relations with so many other people. Even, within the BJP I maintain good relation with some people, but not with all.” Paragraphs 5 to 7 Courtesy: The Tribune, Chandigarh



8. "There is no cooperative federalism is in India. Super-emergency is going on in India. Somebody may agree with me somebody may not... But, I must tell this...Every industrialist is under threat, under the scanner. What is going on in this country? There is no freedom. There is no voice of the industry, neither of farmers nor of industry. More than 12,600 people died...All media is under the scanner," Mamata said.



9. 'ARE YOU MOHAMMAD BIN TUGHLAQ?'



On the question of GST, Mamata Banerjee said, "Amit Mitra is only one person. He cannot do much...The GST was passed with voice vote in Parliament. We just said don't pass the GST in hurried manner...Are you Mohammad bin Tughlaq? Can you do whatever you like?"



10. ON DEMONETISATION:

(i) On the question of demonetisation, Mamata Banerjee said, "It was not aimed at wiping out black money. Finance Minister was not aware of the decision. They said it will bring down terrorism. But, in Kashmir, terrorism increased by 12 per cent after demonetisation." Mamata Banerjee also rejected the BJP's counter to her criticism of demonetisation.



(ii) The BJP said that the West Bengal chief minister was against note ban because it struck at the cash cache of political parties including the TMC. "All the political parties had cash and they had only ash," Mamata Banerjee said satirically.



11. ON THE FREEDOM TO CRITICISE PM MODI:



(i) West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also said that the leaders are today not allowed to speak against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "If I say something (against PM Modi), their minister phone me and say why are you saying (things) against Narendra Modi. I say bhai (brother), this is my political right. Why are you telling me like this? They are threatening us also sometimes. This is the situation," Mamata Banerjee said.



(ii) Mamata Banerjee further said, "If the democracy is finished, if the democracy is under the scanner, if the democracy is under Aadhaar, if the democracy is in the name of Aadhaar, everything is lost... Don't tell that in India, we have democracy now."



(iii) Responding to a query as to if she is the principal opposition PM Narendra Modi, Mamata Banerjee said that she was not there to oppose an individual. "I have no individual vendetta politics to cater to," she said.



12. ON THE BJP'S 'DIVISIVE POLITICS'



West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleged that the BJP was indulging in divisive politics in West Bengal. "But, Bengal is the land of Swami Vivekananda and Rabindranath Tagore. It will not allow Danga party or divisive politics to succeed in the state," Mamata said.



13. ON THE EAST AND NORTH-EAST: Mamata Banerjee also accused the Centre of ignoring the eastern and northeastern states of the country. Paragraphs 8 to 13 Courtesy: India Today.

15. “Our ruling elites face a problem. The Hindu does not have the capacity for sustained emotional fervour or for open-ended hostility. In any case, the Hindu has been already drained out of his emotional capital these last three years. The Hindu may be tempted to ask the question as to how many jobs get created if Padmavati is banned. He also knows that Deepika Padukone is not a Pehlu Khan.



16. Short of a war-like situation, the Hindu is happy to return to the daily ritual of his karmic equanimity. He is at peace with himself and within himself. He does not feel the need to define himself in antagonism to some enemy figure. The Hindu has a positive, organic view of himself, his society and his country. This has been at the core of the Indian civilisational perseverance”. The extract paragraphs 15 and 16 and the following connected comments from: ‘Running out of enemies’: Back to core competence in sectarian mobilization’ written by Leaned Mr. Harish Khare; The Tribune, Chandigarh.

Comments:

(i) ashok759: Not just Hindus or Muslims, almost all Indians, many of whom struggle to make both ends meet, want to get on with their lives in peace and harmony.



(ii) Surinder Paul Dhillon: What the Congress did with Muslims the BJP is doing with the Hindus - blind pampering - and both are constructive partners in keeping India poor and regressive.



(iii) watson : All those concerned--just get one thing straight--corruption is as rampant today as it was in the past, infact it has escalated 100% you will hear about it soon



(iv) Shamsul Islam: Appropriate narrative of the prevailing scenario. The Islamist rulers of Pakistan and Hindutva rulers of India seem to have learnt ruling tricks from same alma mater. Anarchy is the motto. Anarchy should reign and issues which can add to this need to be added every day. With anarchy prevailing who would have time to bother about jobs, prices, missing education and health services, dirt. Survival would be the biggest fikr or chinta.



17. Padmavati (film): Plot of the Film: The film is based on the legend of Padmavati, a legendary Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Awadhi language epic poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540 (Courtesy: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) as usual and similarly like the plots of other Films.

IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A LITTLE AWARENESS:



18. IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A LITTLE AWARENESS: Some or any group may call it as one of the myths as we are facing almost in all religions in the world though not at all appealing such myths as faith to the persons, whoever having a little bit awareness about such fairy-small supernatural creature, “an imaginary supernatural being, usually resembling a small person, with magic powers: In folklore, fairies may be kindly or malicious” tales, imaginary stories, untrue statement- something that is untrue and has been made up to deceive people, narrative, rumours, gossips, untruth and falsehood.”



19. Rani Padmini: Padmini, also known as Padmavati and Padmavati (film):

(i) “Rani Padmini: Padmini, also known as Padmavati, was a legendary 13th–14th century Indian queen (Rani). The earliest source to mention her is Padmavat, an epic fictionalized poem written by Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540 CE. The text, which features elements of fantasy, describes her story as follows: Padmavati was an exceptionally beautiful princess of the Singhal kingdom (Sri Lanka). Ratan Sen, the Rajput ruler of Chittor, heard about her beauty from a talking parrot named Hiraman. After an adventurous quest, he won her hand in marriage and brought her to Chittor. Alauddin Khalji, the Sultan of Delhi also heard about her beauty, and laid siege to Chittor to obtain her. Many events occurred during the period of the Siege, till the Fort was finally taken. Meanwhile, Ratan Sen was killed in a duel with Devpal, the king of Kumbhalner who was also enamoured with Padmavati's beauty. Before Alauddin Khalji could capture Chittor, Padmavati and her companions committed Jauhar (self-immolation) to protect their honour. After her sacrifice, the Rajput men died fighting on the battlefield.



(ii) Several subsequent adaptions of the legend characterised her as a Hindu Rajput queen, who defended her honour against a Muslim invader. Over the years, she came to be seen as a historical figure, and appeared in several novels, plays, television serials and movies. However, while Alauddin Khalji's siege of Chittor in 1303 CE is a historical event, the legend of Padmini has little historical evidence and most modern historians have rejected its authenticity”. Courtesy: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



(iii) Padmavati (film): Padmavati is an upcoming Indian epic period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, based on the epic poem Padmavat (1540) by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. The film is also inspired by the Tamil film Chittoor Rani Padmini (1960). The film features Deepika Padukone in the title role as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji, with Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh in supporting roles. Initially scheduled for release on 1 December 2017, the film has been indefinitely postponed following numerous controversies.



20. Plot of the Film: The film is based on the legend of Padmavati, a legendary Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Awadhi language epic poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540. According to Padmavat, she was the wife of Ratan Sen (called Rawal Ratan Singh in later legends), the Rajput ruler of Mewar. In 1303, Alauddin Khilji, the Muslim Turko-Afghan ruler of the Delhi Sultanate, laid siege to the Chittor Fort in Rajputana. According to Padmavat, Khilji led the invasion motivated by his desire to capture Padmavati. The men of the city stormed out in a final mortal sally to kill as many of the enemy before falling. Padmavati is said to have committed jauhar (self-immolation) along with all the other women of the city to protect their honour and to avoid being captured by Khilji”.

21. In the larger interest of the welfare with cooperative, collective spirit and nature; by wishing well being of humanity all over, all do consider and follow please as under:



Firstly God created light and then by His Omnipotence, made all the mortals.

From the One light welled up the entire Universe.

Then who is good and who is bad?

Sri Guru Granth Sahib-Page 1349

22. Hence submission: We are not traitors-betrayers, whoever may be asking to reform hollow system of our India and elsewhere.
