SACHAR COMMITTEE : TELL-TALE FACTS ABOUT MUSLIMS IN GUJARAT

May 17, 2010
No

In my blog dated 3rd May, I had written about the Swarna Jayanti Samaroh of Gujarat. In this I had pointed out how Narendra Bhai Modi had proved a unique Chief Minister who had converted a prashasanik programme into a People’s Programme and made every citizen feel a proud participant in the sankalp to make Gujarat a model state in every sense of the word. Generally speaking, by now, people have widely come to acknowledge that in terms of honest governance and development of Gujarat, Narendra Bhai’s achievements are beyond dispute. What is often questioned is how harmonious are inter-communal relations in the state, and specifically speaking, how happy and contented the Muslims are in the State. In 2006 Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh appointed a high power committee headed by Justice Shri Rajinder Sachar to make a detailed study of the economic, social and educational conditions of Muslims in … Continue reading SACHAR COMMITTEE : TELL-TALE FACTS ABOUT MUSLIMS IN GUJARAT

सच्चर कमेटी : गुजरात के मुस्लिमों के बारे में आंखें खोल देने वाले तथ्य

3 मई के अपने ब्लॉग में मैंने गुजरात के स्वर्ण जयंती समारोह के बारे में लिखा था। उसमें मैंने बताया था कि कैसे नरेन्द्रभाई मोदी ने एक प्रशासनिक कार्यक्रम को लोगों के कार्यक्रम में परिवर्तित कर और प्रत्येक नागरिक को, प्रत्येक क्षेत्र में गुजरात को एक आदर्श राज्य बनाने के संकल्प में सहभागी बनाने का गर्वोत्तम अवसर देकर अपने आप को एक अद्वितीय मुख्यमंत्री सिध्द किया है। सामान्य तौर पर कहा जाए तो अब लोग यह स्वीकारने लगे हैं कि गुजरात में ईमानदार शासन और विकास हुआ है और नरेन्द्रभाई की उपलब्धियां विवादों से ऊपर हैं। पर प्रश्न यह उठता है कि राज्य में समुदायों के आपसी रिश्ते कितने सौहार्दपूर्ण हैं, विशेष रूप से राज्य में मुसलमान कितने खुश और संतुष्ट हैं। सन् 2006 में प्रधानमंत्री डा0 मनमोहन सिंह ने देश में मुसलमानों की आर्थिक, सामाजिक और शैक्षणिक स्थिति का विस्तृत अध्ययन करने के लिए एक उच्चाधिकार प्राप्त समिति पूर्व … Continue reading सच्चर कमेटी : गुजरात के मुस्लिमों के बारे में आंखें खोल देने वाले तथ्य

PHONE-TAPPING, CBI MISUSE AND EMERGENCY

May 10, 2010
No

A fortnight back the Outlook of New Delhi carried a startling story of how a Union Minister, a Chief Minister, a Congress General Secretary and the principal leader of the CPI(M) had been subjected to phone-tapping and how their conversations had been tape-recorded. The report caused an uproar in the Parliament. Government did not deny the story. All that it said was: the surveillance was “not authorized.” Government did not even say that they would find out who had undertaken this exercise without authority, and haul up the ‘culprits’. Obviously, no one other than Government itself had done it ! It is significant that Government did not deny the Outlook story relating to Union Minister Sharad Pawar, in which it was said that Pawar’s conversation with Lalit Modi was used to pressurise Pawar to call for Modi’s resignation ! My blog on the Outlook story bore the caption “Is the … Continue reading PHONE-TAPPING, CBI MISUSE AND EMERGENCY
