Zehra F. Kabasakal AratHuman rights are rights claimed against the State and society by virtue of being a human being. However, the human rights of most people have been continuously violated all around the world. Since all civilizations have been patriarchal,1 regardless of the overall human rights conditions maintained in a society, women have been subject to more human rights violations than men. Women constitute the poorest and the least powerful segments of their communities. They are denied equal access to education, job training, employment, leisure time, income, property, health care, public office, decision-making power and freedoms, as well as control over their own body and life.2Cultural norms, laws and philosophies, including those that are considered progressive and emancipatory, have usually discriminated against women.

Law and Judiciary

Sreekumar was Addl DGP, Gujarat Intelligence, in 2002THE RECENT order of the Supreme Court asking the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to inquire into the alleged role of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the post-Godhra communal riots of 2002 is a laudable decision. Firstly, it vindicates the commitment of the judiciary to justice and rule of law. Unfortunately, of late, political parties are getting elected through democracy but their hidden agenda is to implement monocracy. Even if the BJP repeatedly gets electoral verdicts in its favour in Gujarat, their mass violence and genocide cannot be forgiven. Today, we can be rest assured that the judiciary will take cognisance of such travesties. Secondly, the decision strengthens the morale of the secular section of the society.

While India is passing through its 15th general elections, at the same time the only alive terrorist caught in the Mumbai terror attack on November 26 (26/11) last year, is facing trial. The whole nation is desperate to see him hanged. People like me are of the view that he should be publicly hanged at gate way of India in front of the Taj hotel building which witnessed one of the horrible terror attacks on India, so that the world community can see the consequence of challenging the nation's unity, integrity & prosperity. Hopefully, soon the trial would be completed & he would be hanged.

Is CBI hand in glove with Hindutva agencies? PDF Print E-mail
Op Ed
RSS Hindu militiaThe assumption that CBI is an impartial investigative agency which the Muslims thought is now gradually becoming a farce because of them itself. The Nanded blast in April 2006 had claimed the lives of two Bajrang Dal activists. The primary reports itself showed that the workers died when they were making bombs in the secret bombs factory of Bajrang Dal. Now, the question arises that for what reason the Bajrang Dal activists felt the need of secret bomb making? Why did they keep fake beard, Muslim caps, Kurtas and pajamas? What was the reason of the discovery of the maps of two mosques? It is evident that all these clues were strong enough to unveil the real agenda of Hindutava terrorist's network. However, the local police had wiped out the whole case and the last hope for the justice was only CBI. The Maharashtra government was not ready to hand over this case to CBI investigations, the first step in this regard.
