[IAC#RG] Another Great Victory of Maulik Bharat agitation


पोर्न वेबसाइटों को बंद करवाएगी मोदी सरकार

Swachh Internet: Modi Govt to block adult websites


11/21/2014 12:07:35 AM
नई दिल्ली। नरेन्द्र मोदी के नेतृत्व वाली एनडीए सरकार ने भारत में मौजूद ऑनलाइन कंटेंट को साफ करने का बीड़ा उठाया है। सरकार का इरादा पोर्न वेबसाइटों की सूची तैयार करना और इंटरनेट सर्विस प्रोवाइडर्स को उन वेबसाइटों को ब्लॉक करने के लिए कहना है। 

बड़े पैमाने पर हो रही ब्लॉकिंग के चलते इंटरनेट की गति धीमी हो जाती है। इस समस्या के समाधान के लिए इंटरनेट सर्विस प्रोवाइडर्स को उनका सिस्टम अपग्रेड करने के लिए कहा जाएगा। सरकार ने इंटनेट और मोबाइल एसोसिएशन ऑफ इंडिया को सूची बनाने को कहा है। दूरसंचार एवं आईटी मंत्री रविशंकर प्रसाद का कहना है कि अन्य देशों में पोर्न वैध है लेकिन इसे भारतीय संस्कृति के परिप्रेक्ष्य और समाज केप्रति नैतिक बाध्यताओं के रूप में देखे जाने की जरूरत है। 

भाजपा ने सरकार के इस कदम का पूरा समर्थन किया है। भाजपा की आईटी सेल के प्रमुख अरविंद गुप्ता ने एक वेबसाइट से बातचीत में कहा कि पोर्नोग्राफी देश की सांस्कृतिक मूल्यों के खिलाफ है। इस तरह के कंटेंट को ब्लॉक आउट करने के लिए समाधान की जरूरत है। पोर्न वेबसाइटों को बंद करवाना सरकार के लिए काफी मुश्किल टास्क होगा। इंडियन कंप्यूटर इमरजेंसी रेस्पांस टीम के अनुमान के मुताबिक दुनियाभर में 40 मिलियन पोर्न वेबसाइटें हैं। इनमें से ज्यादातर भारत के बाहर से चलती हैं। 

गौरतलब है कि सुप्रीम कोर्ट भी पेशे से वकील कमलेश वासवानी की याचिका पर सुनवाई कर रहा है जिसमें अदालत से पोर्न वेबसाइटों पर प्रतिबंध लगाने की मांग की गई है। वासवानी की दलील है कि पोर्न वेबसाइटों की वजह से महिलाओं से रेप,शोषण और प्रताड़ना जैसी गतिविधियों बढ़ रही है। 29 अगस्त को पिछली सुनवाई के दौरान केन्द्र सरकार ने कहा था कि पोर्न को फिल्टर करना प्रायोगिक नहीं है।

[IAC#RG] Fwd: DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR OF IIT M STUDENT


To

India Against Corruption



                                                                                   DISGUSTING  BEHAVIOUR  OF  IIT M STUDENTS


The students of Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT M) made a show of themselves  by kissing each other in front of camera ; boy&boy, girl&girl, boy&girl.  The print and television media appear to be highly pleased to show the scene , that would perhaps help them in increasing the circulation /viewership.  Who cares ?

The above behaviour of the students of IIT M wiped out in one stroke the  fair image of IITs , shocking many people who thought that IIT students are the brightest of the bright in the country, capable of  maintaining  lofty standards in behaviour. The government of India has been spending crores of rupees of tax payer’s  money in supporting the education of these so called elite students, , expecting that most of them would ultimately turn up as high class engineers and technologists contributing to the social and economic growth of the country. The expectation has been that these students will  be  trend setters in the building up of new and progressive India and certainly not part of kissing parade.

These misguided students say that they have been indulging in kissing scenario in support of the liberal life style, whatever it may mean.  It has not occurred to them that such uncultured and ugly behaviour will go down as a new low in  public behaviour in the country.

One wonders what has the Director of IIT M been doing and how did he permit this, particularly when it has happened in the campus ? What is the responsibility of the Director and the professors  in ensuring discipline and meeting the expectations of the country men about the standards of the students and culture in IITs.

Unfortunately, IIT Madras has been in the news for all wrong reasons in recent times. The professors of IIT M went on dharna some time back demanding higher wages ;  suicide amongst students have been happening in the hostels too frequently.

It is high time that the government of India should order an enquiry  into the affairs of IIT M , with particular reference to the above ugly behaviour of the students and the silence of the Director and professors.

[IAC#RG] Amendments to Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act 1971

Proposed amendments to the Act have been put on the website of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for comments/suggestions by stakeholders and the public. www.mohfw.nic.in The proposed amendments include allowing registered ayurvedic doctors, homeopaths, nurses, ANMs to carry out abortions. Also, any woman can get an abortion on demand till 12 weeks and thereafter till 24 weeks under certain conditions. The effect of these amendments will have a deleterious effect on the reproductive health of women as clinics will spring up in rural and semi-rural areas with few checks for hygiene and quality of services provided. Such clinics will thrive on sex selective abortions which will be detrimental to the social fabric of the country. Time has been given till 10 November to submit comments. This is inadequate. I have submitted my comments which I am pasting below. Should IAC take a view? In any case individuals can submit comments to saurabh.mittal89-R9E+szwozl8@public.gmane.org  Pavan Nair.

Dear Shri Mittal,

     Please refer to the notice on the website of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare regarding the above. I am submitting my para wise comments and suggestions to the proposed amendments as under. At the outset, however, let me make it clear that these amendments will have a deleterious effect on the reproductive health of women and will encourage the practice of female foeticide. The proposal to extend the date for termination to 24 weeks seems reasonable. The time given for submission of comments is inadequate and the amendments need much wider dissemination for discussion and debate. The purpose of these amendments seems to encourage the use of abortion to restrict births and encourage family planning. This is dangerous and problematic as a policy when cheap and easily available contraceptives can be widely distributed. Contraceptive failure is very rare. Nearly 80% of abortions being done in Delhi are for this reason. I have obtained this information under RTI from your Ministry.

Para 2. The concept of using 'health care providers' ( registered and trained ayurvedic doctors, homeopaths, nurses, ANMs etc) will encourage abortion clinics being established in rural and semi rural areas. To check facilities provided and conditions of hygiene will be near impossible. Not having a gynecologist or a surgeon present will lead to complications.

Para 4 (II). Substituted Para 2a. This implies that abortion should be made available on demand till 12 weeks. In a country like India, we have not been able to make birthing facilities available, how will it be possible for the government to make facilities for abortion available in rural areas? Obviously private practitioners will fill that gap. Secondly, sex determination becomes feasible at about the same time. This Section will be misused to carry out sex selective abortions even till 15 weeks. Who will establish how far the pregnancy has gone. The health care provider.

Explanation (ii) is redundant since the pregnant woman can seek abortion under the Para 2a above. In any case there should be a clause for married couples where abortion should be made available only if they have two or more surviving or adopted children. These amendments will allow a married couple to terminate even first healthy pregnancies on grounds of contraceptive failure after 12 weeks and on no particular ground before.

I am copying this mail to the Minister and a few others who may be interested. Please acknowledge receipt of this mail. Col Pavan Nair VSM (Retd)

procurement, to promote healthy competition among the tenderers, to provide for fair and equitable
treatment of all tenderers, and to eliminate irregularities, interference and corrupt practices by the

[HumJanenge] Representation

Date: 13.9.14

 

To,

Sh. Sukhbir Singh Badal,

Deputy Chief Minister,

Government of Punjab,

Chandigarh

E-mail: sukhbirbadal2014 <at> gmail.com

 

 

REPRESENTATION

 

Dear Mr. Deputy CM,

 

In response to your invitation to applications/complaints on your E-mail Id, I hereby avail this opportunity of drawing your attention to some problems of common man which should be enough to deflate your tall boastings of good governance and slogans of ‘Raj nahi Seva’ in the state. Though there are countless problems for the people, the below mentioned a few should be enough to show you the mirror:   

 

1.            Electricity Bills:

 

(i)            The last date for payment of bills through cheques is shorter than that by the DD and in cash.  The payment of bills above Rs. 5000/- is not accepted in cash though the lowering purchase value of rupee amply shows that Rs. 5000/- is very meager amount and most of the consumers receive bill exceeding this amount.  The excuse taken by the PSPCL staff is the security threat to cash. This excuse adequately exposes your law & order situation in the state.  Then the Bills are in horrible condition. The entries of charges imposed do not match with their respective heads. Consequently, one cannot make out anything from these bills. Completely jumbled up bills only are tools of exploitation of consumers. Additionally, the contents on these bills disappear after very short period because of the low quality temporary ink. This is solely with the ulterior motive of looting innocent people through crook ways so that one may not be able to read a bill.

 

(ii)            Though the power tariff hike surreptitiously for electricity is a very routine phenomenon, yet people are made to face long power cuts. This falsifies all your assurances give to people of Punjab in recent Assembly elections to make the state ‘a power surplus state’.

 

2.   Parking Mafia:

The parking mafia in the whole state of Punjab is working fearlessly, and certainly not without the patronization of political bosses. On almost every parking stand, much higher rates are charged than the prescribed one. Anyone objecting to that is abused, harassed and beaten mercilessly. The administrative officials are either hands in gloves with the parking mafia or they are helpless in front of political leaders who are suspectedly silent partners in those parking contracts. For example, in multi level parking in Mini secretariat, Ludhiana, the goons are so bold that they openly charge extra and put down any resistance by the stand users mercilessly. The bouncers of the contractor deployed there beat a vehicle owner mercilessly and broke his one rib on 18.6.14. The DC, Ludhiana, was reported the whole incident then & there, but no action is yet visible.  Extra charging there is continuing unabated. 

 

3.     High Security Number Plates:

 Applying for High Security Number Plates (HSNPs) for old vehicles or getting fitted those plates on new/old vehicles is not an easy task. The work of preparing HSNPs for old or new vehicles is outsourced to a company Agros Impex(I) Pvt. Ltd., Kharar, Dist. Mohali, Punjab - 140301. It is the bounden duty of this company to create adequate infrastructure for the work and provide hassle free service to the applicants, but the long queues for this purpose are the self evident indicators of the deficiency in service due to inadequate infrastructure and consequent corruption there. Applying for a new HSNP and getting it fitted on one’ vehicle is considered a very big achievement. News on this issue keep appearing in the media, but the government has intentionally closed its ears & eyes to this grave problem of people.

 

Dear Sir, the above mentioned issues are just a few of the numerous one that torment people one way or the other. Land mafia, sand mafia, transport mafia, cable mafia and what not have taken the whole state in their grip, and people are reeling under corruption, inflation and your misrule. Despite all this you feel proud in boasting about your good governance. People certainly want to get rid of this type of ‘Raj’ as well as ‘Seva’.

A word of acknowledgement shall be appreciated.

 

Surinder Pal Advocate

Ludhiana
