Hey, Patrickbhai: Violent Persecution of Christians Rises in India, 'An Attack Being Recorded Every 40 Hours': Report

Christians protest for their rights in India
A new report says that violent attacks on the Christian minority in India are increasing at an alarming rate, as the emboldened members of groups close to the governing Hindu nationalist party seek to create a "Hindu nation." There's an anti-Christian attack every 40 hours, the report highlights.

The report by the All India Christian Council says attacks against Christians increased by about 20 percent in 2016, and physical violence against Christians was up by as much as 40 percent. A fresh attack is being reported every 40 hours, it added.

"The attacks have become severe and more frequent. Incidents used to be confined to a few states. Now the violence has spread to 23 states," the report notes, pointing out that the sharpest rise has been recorded in the northern Uttar Pradesh state and the southern state of Telangana.

The attacks involve physical beating, vandalism and torching of churches, burning of Bibles, death threats, forcing Christians to renounce their faith and convert to Hinduism, and disruption of and attacks on church services and prayer meetings.

In one case, Hindu nationalists beat an evangelist with chains, stripped him and forced him to drink urine, the report says. In another incident, a Christian cemetery was desecrated and skeletons dug up and strewn across the graveyard, it adds.

Attacks on Christians have been on the rise since the Hindu national Bharatiya Janata Party won the national election in 2014. The BJP believes in and propagates the Hindutva ideology, which envisions an India where Hindus and the Hindu culture will dominate. The BJP is believed to be the political wing of the chief Hindu nationalist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).  (more...)


Our serene man in India is unperturbed:

It's just a cost of doing business to him. Offshoring our jobs is what the Bay Street Brahmans pays him to do:

Christians are just Dalits in the circle Patrickbhai runs with.

Patrickbhai? Who is anti-socon Patrick Brown, really?

Gujarati Uber: Offshoring Ontario jobs
Prime Minister Stephen Harper may have given his Indian counterpart a welcome fit for a king, but a Conservative backbencher is the one Narendra Modi calls “brother.”

Patrick Brown, a Barrie, Ont., MP who is running for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party in Ontario, forged a friendship with Modi years ago, during a difficult time for the Indian leader.

The red carpet is now being rolled out for Modi everywhere he goes during his three-day visit to Canada, but he has not forgotten Canadians’ support all those years ago...

Brown met Modi more than five years ago at a trade conference in Gujarat, a state in western India. At that time, Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat and an international pariah. He was accused of being complicit in the deadly 2002 riots that killed more than a thousand people in the state, most of them Muslims.

Even though the courts refused to prosecute Modi, the U.S. refused to issue him a visa and other countries imposed diplomatic boycotts.

That’s when some of Modi’s friends in Gujarat asked “if a Canadian politician could come to speak at his trade conference to try to rebuild this brand of his of being a person who’s going to bring investment to India,” Brown said.

“So I went, I got to know him, I spoke at his conference and we hit it off, so he kept on inviting me back.”

Brown, who has been counting on political support from Indo-Canadians, said Canada was one of only two foreign countries represented at that conference.

He remembers Modi telling him: “I will never forget who was here during our most difficult days.”  (more...)

OK, so Patrickbhai can afford to thumb his nose at social conservatives, thanks to the Gujarati vote. What will the Modi-fied Ontario look like?

Bad, very bad. Say hello to child labor and slavery to the Bay Street Brahmans.

Political Murder, Klan/Nazi Style

 A comprehensive look at the Klan and Nazi killings of union organizers during an anti-Klan rally in Greensboro, N.C., and the subsequent acquittal of the assassins. Highlighting the program is a replay of the video footage which was taken at the murder scene by TV reporters. Lewis Pitts, prominent civil rights attorney who has assisted the American Indian Movement and worked in the Karen Silkwood case, presents the shocking facts of the comprehensive, continuous complicity of the local and federal police forces on the side of the Klan and Nazis. Pitts also discusses the gross violations of justice occurring during the trial.

In the concluding program Lewis Pitts places the Greensboro murders in a national perspective in relation to other serious attacks on our constitutional rights by the Klan, police, Congress, courts, FBI and the other intelligence agencies -- public and private -- in the country. Pitts recalls the FBI's COINTELPRO program, CIA abuses, the Karen Silkwood case, and the maltreatment and exploitation of the American Indians, and he notices an extremely dangerous trend in this country towards fascism. Also featured are videotapes made during the Greensboro massacre and replays of sections of previous programs in which attacks on civil rights are recounted.


How Ukraine Turned into An Arms Dealer? Supplying Weapons to Al Qaeda and ISIS-Daesh

The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) together with the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network revealed a scheme of weapons supply to the terrorists of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.

There is no secret that the U.S. provides the so-called moderate opposition and Kurdish militia in Syria with arms and ammunition most of which are the weapons remained after the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact disbanded.

The U.S. DOD, through U.S. SOCOM, MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, as well as Picatinny Arsenal, American military research, and manufacturing facility located in Dover, New Jersey, acquired arms in some Eastern European countries including Ukraine for their further sending to Syria. The procurement volume has already exceeded $700 billion.

Kiev used the logistical scheme elaborated by Washington to export arms and weapons from the Ukrainian armed forces weapons depots. The deal is estimated at $110 billion.

Between June 5 and September 15, the United States sent 1,421 trucks loaded with weaponry to the “moderate” opposition, including 596 trucks (more than 40 %) from Ukraine. Most of them ended up in ISIS’ hands.  (more...)


Appeal court ruling upholding ex-London teacher's voyeurism acquittal sparks outrage

“Open season” has been declared on women’s breasts, advocates say, to be secretly filmed and photographed in public spaces legally after a surprising ruling from Ontario’s highest court in the voyeurism case of an ex-London high school teacher.

“It’s just absolutely mind-blowing, shocking and outrageous,” said Barbara MacQuarrie, community director for the Centre for Research and Education on Violence against Women and Children at Western University, reacting to a split decision from the Ontario Court of Appeal that upheld the acquittal of former H.B. Beal teacher Ryan Jarvis.

The majority decision ruled that students had no reasonable expectation of privacy in the public areas of schools, making Jarvis’s secretly record sexually driven videos legal under the voyeurism law.

“How can we have a law that doesn’t see the wrongness of not allowing women to sit, stand, be in public spaces without the danger of being recorded?” MacQuarrie said.

“It’s open season on women’s breasts.”

Jarvis, 41, was acquitted almost two years ago of voyeurism in London. The appeal was triggered after Superior Court Justice Andrew Goodman wasn’t entirely convinced that secret pen-camera videos of 27 female students were for a sexual purpose.

The videos were taken by Jarvis as he stood near students in the school’s hallways, cafeteria, classrooms and at track and field practice. About a dozen of the videos showed teenage breasts and cleavage, while the rest caught faces and upper bodies. The students were clothed.  (more...)

Catholic high school teacher charged with sexual exploitation, child porn offences

A teacher at a Catholic high school in Etobicoke is in custody for allegedly luring a child online and making child pornography.

Toronto police say that on Thursday, officers conducted a search warrant in the Bloor Street West and Lansdowne Avenue area.

As a result of the search, a 46-year-old male suspect was taken into custody.

The suspect has since been identified as Gerard McGilly.

He has been charged with six offences including luring a child, sexual exploitation, making sexually explicit material available to a person under 18, making child pornography and possession of child pornography.

None of the charges have been proven in court.

Police say McGilly has worked as a teacher at Bishop Allen Academy on Royal York Road in Etobicoke since 2008. Before that he worked at Bishop Morrocco/ Thomas Merton Catholic high school from 2007 to 2008.

Prior to that, he worked as an education assistant at St. Francis Xavier Secondary School in Mississauga from 1995 to 2000. He also worked in St. Francis Table, a community outreach centre in Parkdale, from 2000 to 2006.  (more...)
