A Brief BUT Complete History of India : As written by a Std X schoolboy, with all the original spellings. Please pay special attention to the spellings and the “derived” nomenclature. If you dont know all this — you are history!!!

The original inhabitants of ancient India were called Adidases, who lived in two cities called Hariappa and Mujhe-na-Darao. These cities had the best drain system in the world and so there was no brain drain from them.

Ancient India was full of myths which have been handed down from son to father. A myth is a female moth. A collection of myths is called mythology, which means stories with female caricatures. One myth says that people in olden times worshipped monkeys because they were our incestors.

In olden times there were two big families in India . One was called the Pandava and the other was called the Karova. They fought amongst themselves in a battle called Mahabharat, after which India came to be known as Mera Bharat Mahan.

In midevil times India was ruled by the Slave Dienasty. So named because they all died a nasty death. Then came the Tughlaqs who shifted their capital from Delhi because of its pollution. They were followed by the Mowglis.
The greatest Mowgli was Akbar because he extinguished himself on the battlefield of Panipat which is in Hurryana. But his son Jehangir was peace loving; he married one Hindu wife and kept 300 porcupines. Then came Shahajahan who had 14 sons. Family planning had not been invented at that time. He also built the Taj Mahal hotel for his wife who now sleeps there. The king sent all his sons away to distant parts of India because they started quarrelling. Dara Seiko was sent to UP, Shaikh Bhakhtiyar was sent to J & K, while Orangezip came to Bombay to fight Shivaji. However, after that they changed its name to Mumbai because Shivaji’s sena did not like it. They also do not like New Delhi , so they are calling it Door Darshan.

After the Mowglis came Vasco the Gama. He was an exploder who was circumcising India with a 100 foot clipper. Then came the British. They brought with them many inventions such as cricket, tramtarts and steamed railways. They were followed by the French who brought in French fries, pizzazz and laundry. But Robert Clive drove them out when he deafened Duplex who was out membered since the British had the queen on their side.

Eventually, the British came to overrule India because there was too much diversity in our unity. The British overruled India for a long period. They were great expotents and impotents. They started expoting salt from India and impoting cloth. This was not liked by Mahatma Gandhi who wanted toproduce his own salt. This was called the swedish moment. During this moment, many people burnt their lion cloths in the street and refused to wear anything else. The British became very angry at this and stopped the production of Indian testiles.
In 1920, Mahatma Gandhi was married to one wife. Soon after he became the father of the nation. In 1942 he started the Quiet India moment, so named because the British were quietly lootaoing our country. In 1947, India became free and its people became freely loving. This increased our population. Its government became a limited mockery, which means people are allowed to take the law in their own hands with the help of the police. Our constipation is the best in the world because it says that no man can be hanged twice for the same crime. It also says you cannot be put in prison if you have not paid your taxis.

Another important thing about our constipation is that it can be changed. This is not possible with the British constipation because it is not written on paper. The Indian Parlemint consists of two houses which are called lower and higher. This is because one Mr Honest Abe said that two houses divided against itself cannot withstand.

So Pandit Nehru asked the British for freedom at midnight since the British were afraid of the dark. At midnight, on August 15, there was a tryst in Parlemint in which many participated by wearing khaki and hosting the flag.

Recently in India , there have been a large number of scams and a plaque. it can be dangerous because many people died of plaque in Surat . Scams are all over India . One of these was in Bihar where holy cows were not given anything to eat by their elected leader. The other scam was in Bofor which is a small town in Switzerland. In this, a lot of Indian money was given to buy a gun which can shoot a coot.

Presently India has a coalishun government made up of many parties, left, right and centre. It has started to library the economy. This means that there is now no need for a licence as the economy will be driven by itself.. India is also trying to become an Asian tiger because its own tigers are being poached. Another important event this year was the Shark meeting at Malas Dive. At this place, shark leaders agreed to share their poverty, pollution and population


I just read an article from the latest issue of INSIGHT (a periodical
published by the Consumer Education Research Centre (CERC) Ahmedabad)
about how CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited) tracks
your credit worthiness and how banks are flouting the rules laid down
by RBI such that your credit is stake.

The scanned copy of the article is attached herewith for your reading. (1.45 MB)

Let me point out the main issues:

1. The data of all ‘liability product customers’ – those who ‘buy’
(procure) credit cards, home loans, bank accounts, personal loans,
other loans, etc are submitted to the CIBIL if there is any
delinquency (cheque bounce, default, etc)
2. This data is correlated with other data about yourself -such as
PAN, Date of Birth, Mobile/Residence/Office phone nos, etc. so that
your data is identified as unique/irrefutable.
3. This data is acquired from CIBIL (and now new credit info companies
are coming) by companies in the financial sector – banks, NBFCs,
insurance companies, etc when you approach them to buy any new product
4. If the CIBIL (or others) report is negative your application would
be rejected or you would be offered the product at special conditions
– higher rates, shorter terms, etc
5. Whenever a financial service provider intimates CIBIL or others
about you, as per RBI rules, they should inform you and give you a
copy of the report.
6. However this is not done and they do this by changing the agreement
with you. (Example given in the article)
7. Even when there is any dispute and the dispute is settled /
negotiated the company may not give the updated data to CIBIL thereby
severely compromising your credit worthiness.

If you are a regular user of credit cards and have other loan
products, and are interested in knowing your credit report from CIBIL,
kindly use the information given in the forwarded e-mail.

Hope this information will be useful to you.

Front Line – March 26th 2010

Kamran Shahid Interviews Aafia Siddiqui’s Family

Translated and transcribed by the Justice for Aafia Coalition

Kamran Shahid: We are sitting in Aafia Siddiqui‟s home in Karachi, a woman who was tried in the United States, and who has become such a big phenomenon in Pakistan. We will talk to her immediate family members: her mother and sister. We will also talk to the female journalist who became a Muslim after spending time in a Taliban prison. It was her press conference which broke the news of Prisoner 650, which forced the Americans to present Aafia in a court. Today‟s programme has several special features. First and foremost we will talk about Aafia; secondly, we will show you unseen pictures, and then we will also show you exclusive footage, which has never been aired before on any Pakistani Channel, of the torture cell in Afghanistan where Aafia Siddiqui was shot.

A very warm welcome, and thank you very much for inviting us here. Let me start our discussion with talking to Aafia‟s mother first. (Pakistan Interior Minister) Rehman Malik came here a couple of days ago and we hear that he gave you much hope that he will be able to do something for Aafia Siddiqui. Do you trust his promises?

Ismat Siddiqui: I think that since the time Aafia was taken away, Rehman Malik has been the only one who raised our hopes and did something. He also had the biggest role in trying to bring the children back. He spoke very strongly about the children to (Afghan President) Karzai and he was hopeful that we will soon succeed, if Allah so wills.

Kamran Shahid: Two of her children are still in Afghanistan?

Ismat: We don‟t know…

Kamran Shahid: But why will Rehman Malik talk to Karzai then?

Ismat: Well, it is Rehman Malik who is doing everything. Anyway, he had many hopes. He said we will get the two children released. He was more hopeful about the girl.

Kamran Shahid: Dr. Fowzia, the American court has convicted her and announced the maximum penalty it can give in her case. Now, the Pakistani ambassador to the US and Rehman Malik too has met you. Despite all this, do you think that considering the verdict of an American court, will Pakistan still be able to use its influence to win Dr. Aafia‟s release? Is a breakthrough possible?

Dr. Fowzia: This was a mistrial, a false trial. America had no jurisdiction. If you see, all violations of basic human rights since the birth of mankind which one can imagine, all of them have been inflicted upon Aafia alone. Apparently, it looks like Aafia has been convicted and all that, but [not clear]. There was a time when we (the family) were all alone. Wherever we used to go, no one used to listen to us. But now she is the daughter of this great nation, which has done many (great) things in history, and has cared for a lot of things. And I have faith in the people of Pakistan and in Allah. And I think, if the media becomes the bridge to convey the message, then you know, Aafia‟s son Ahmed was recovered. He is a miracle in front of us. And it happened when the people stood up for the cause. The media helped portray that cause, and the government had to act. As Yvonne Ridley usually says, “When the people lead, the government has to follow.”

Kamran Shahid: As you say, there is a lot of pressure from the nation and the nation wants Aafia to be released immediately, I think if it was within the Pakistani government‟s power, she would have been free. On the other hand, we see that in the custody of American government, her trial is conducted in America and they have their own norms. Then would they, since she is accused, who the Americans think is accused of terrorism, do you think…

Ismat: They do not think she is a terrorist…?

Kamran Shahid: Do you think they will release her on the Pakistani government‟s demand?

Dr. Fowzia: Actually, she was not tried for terrorism. The American prosecution, their District Attorney announced before the trial began that, in his own words, that Aafia has no link to Taliban, Al-Qaida or any terrorist organization. We do not have any evidence for that. Her trial that is going on is only for those few moments in which Aafia snatched the gun, picked it up, loaded it, fired it and then the bullets somehow got into her stomach! These were the charges. She was convicted of them, in which there is no question and trace of terrorism. It is a misconception. It is the American media which has made her out to be a terrorist.

Kamran Shahid: There is a perception that she is an American citizen and hence the US has a right to try her. What do say about this perception?

Dr. Fowzia: I told you, the Americans had no jurisdiction. This was a mistrial. Aafia is a Pakistani citizen. She always was a Pakistani citizen. She never even had a Green Card.

Kamran Shahid: So she is a Pakistani citizen?

Dr. Fowzia: Of course. We have all the passports. Please see them all.

Ismat: The passports are all here.

Dr. Fowzia: Yes, they are all here. If she had an intention of leaving her home and the country, the first thing she would have done is to take her and the children‟s passports with her.

Kamran Shahid: So you are saying these are all Pakistani passports?

Dr. Fowzia: Of course. Please see them, even her children‟s. When the children were born, she…

Kamran Shahid: This is her daughter, Maryam, whom Mr. Rehman Malik has promised to get back from President Karzai. This is a Pakistani passport.

Dr. Fowzia: This is Ahmed.

Kamran Shahid: This is her son, Ahmed, whom we will try to let you meet in today‟s program. His passport too is Pakistani.

Dr. Fowzia: Look, this is Aafia‟s passport. Look, 3rd February 2008. It expired on that date, the date they decided the case against her!

Kamran Shahid: This is Aafia Siddiqui‟s passport, which her sister Dr. Fowzia has given to me.

Dr. Fowzia: The picture you are seeing on the passport, actually it was actually this photo that she had for the passport, but the officials took that one upfront for the passport. This picture you are seeing was taken on the same date the passport was made.

Ismat: Show him that passport too.

Dr. Fowzia: Look at this passport. This was when she was very young.

Kamran Shahid: Since then she has had a Pakistani passport. You can see this.

Dr. Fowzia: It also has her national identity card on it. Perhaps she only took her national identity with her, since we do not have the original. This is a photocopy.

Kamran Shahid: The date on it is 29th of July, 1994. This means she does not have a dual nationality?

Dr. Fowzia: No, no, no, not at all. She does not even have a green card. She never even applied for it.

Ismat: It is a mistrial.

Kamran Shahid: She studied in MIT for a long time. Because of this some people think she is an American citizen?

Dr. Fowzia: Maybe, but I don‟t think so. I think just to justify in the public that the rendition they did, it was an illegal rendition. Even if you look at their story…leave alone what happened in 2003. Just take their story. They say that from Afghanistan they took her to the US. How can you take a Pakistani citizen from Afghanistan to US? She should have been taken to Pakistan. Isn‟t there a Pakistani embassy in Afghanistan?

Kamran Shahid: Do you think it is still a mystery how she got into Afghanistan? I mean whether the Pakistani government delivered her to Afghanistan or she went herself?

Dr. Fowzia: To Afghanistan, she was taken by the American FBI.

Ismat: The FBI took her. It is proven.

Dr. Fowzia: The FBI‟s spokesman, on MSNBC‟s Tom Brokaw show, he is on tape.

Ismat: It is all on tape.

Dr. Fowzia: It is on tape that he said: “We have Aafia.”

Kamran Shahid: Let me move onto this lady, Yvonne Ridley. A very warm welcome to our special edition of this show.

Yvonne Ridley: Thank you.

Kamran Shahid: Obviously we know that you converted to Islam and the incident was quite dramatic because you had been taken hostage and detained by the Taliban. You were reporting for the Sunday Express and were working as a reporter there, in Afghanistan and then the Taliban got hold of you and imprisoned you and (was it) the way they treated you probably or was something else going on in your mind during those days… we want to know… because you are the person whose press conference triggered the release of Aafia Siddiqui if I am not wrong.

Yvonne Ridley: Well, six days into my arrest – and I was arrested because I had committed a crime – unlike everybody else – and Aafia, and unlike any of them that were rendered by America, I had committed a crime; I had entered Afghanistan illegally, without a passport, so I am the guilty one and look at me sitting here! I was arrested and held for ten days – ten terrifying days – and on the sixth day they invited me to embrace Islam.

Kamran Shahid: Who?

Yvonne Ridley: The Taliban. And it was the one little ray of hope that I was given because I seized on this and I said I can’t embrace Islam under these circumstances and in prison, but I said, if you release me, I promise I will read the Qur’an and study Islam when I get back to London. And against all the odds, after the war had started, after they were holding on to other Westerners, they released me – against all the odds. On a humanitarian instruction by Mullah Omar, the Taliban spiritual leader, I was released.

Kamran Shahid: When was this?

Yvonne Ridley: It was October the 8th, 2001.

Kamran Shahid: Now we have heard quite brutal stories about Afghanistan and the Taliban, but you have a very different picture of the Taliban. First of all, naturally, people would be very curious to know how they dealt with you during all those days that you spent there. Briefly do you want to give us a picture of how they actually dealt with you?

Yvonne Ridley: I was terrified because I had been told because… George Bush told us, Tony Blair told us… this is the most evil, brutal regime in the world, they [unclear], and so when I was arrested, naturally, when I was arrested, I did not think I would see the sun set at night, and in those ten days, they dealt with me with respect and courtesy. I went on hunger strike, and they would still, what they would do, they would bring out food in front of me; freshly baked bread that smelled delicious – and I wouldn’t eat it. They had a jug of water and a bowl and they would wash my hands and say please eat, and I was thinking I don’t understand this, you know, when are they going to be brutal and evil? Everything that happened in Abu Ghraib, in Bagram, in Guantanamo, and other dark prisons, I thought would have happened to me, which often prompts me to say thank Allah that I was captured by the most evil, brutal regime in the world and not by the Americans.

Kamran Shahid: Have you ever met Mullah Omar?

Yvonne Ridley: I haven’t, no. Not as far as I am aware. Nobody knows what he looks like!

Kamran Shahid: Do you ever have, afterwards, recollections of Taliban, recently or previously?

Yvonne Ridley: I was making a film about Aafia’s story, and I drove down to Ghazni to the prison, to the police station where she was originally held when she was arrested in July 2008, and on my way down to Ghazni I got caught in the fire fight between the Taliban and the Afghan police and we had to get out of the car and run because they were shooting.

Kamran Shahid: We will take a break and then we will talk to the people present here about the torture faced by Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. We will talk to her mother. We will ask Miss Ridley about the story she broke about Prisoner 650, how she got to know she is in a torture cell in Bagram. And we will also let you meet her son, Ahmed. All this after the break.

Kamran Shahid: Please tell us, as Miss Ridley said that America‟s torture has been very bad.

Ismat: Yes, very.

Kamran Shahid: We have been told that Aafia Siddiqui had to undergo the worst torture. What information do you have about what injustice America has done to your daughter?

Ismat: She was tortured a lot in the torture cell. The worst was that six men would come and strip her naked. All her clothes would be removed. She told this to the Pakistani senators too, that they would strip her naked, then tie her hands behind her back, and then they would take her, dragging her by the hair. You cannot imagine the cruelty they have done to her. They would take her like this to the corridor and film her there. After that, they observed that she would read the Qu‟ran, from memory and from the book. They again would send six, seven men, who would strip her naked and misbehave etc. They took the Qu‟ran and threw it at her feet and told her that only if you walk on the Qu‟ran will we return the Qu‟ran to you. She would cry and shout that she would not do it. Then they would beat her with their rifle butts so much that she would be bloodied. All her face and body would be injured. Then they used to pull out her hair one by one, just like this. Anyway, they used to tell her to walk on the Qu‟ran…They threatened her that they will take her to the court like this, naked.

Dr. Fowzia: It‟s on video. It‟s on tape.

Ismat: It is all on tape. I am not making this up.

Kamran Shahid: On tape by Aafia Siddiqui or the Americans?

Dr. Fowzia: They are sadists or whatever. All the strip searching was video-taped (by them).

Kamran Shahid: Hmm…

Ismat: Video-taped. She said this herself too – that they beat her so much that she bled. After that they made her lie on a bed. Then they tied her hands and feet – hands and feet both tied so that she is not even able to scratch her wounds. Then they applied torture to the soles of her feet and head. They put her in some machines to make her lose her mental stability. They gave her such injections on the pretext of medical treatment. When she would plead and scream to them not to give her these injections, they would make her unconscious and then give them to her. Such is the cruelty. This epic cruelty – and look at this Islamic world, these 57 or 54 Muslim countries. They are all silent and making their palaces in Hell. I say it clearly, I have the fatwa, that any Muslim woman, of any age, young or old, if she is the captive of any non-

Muslim, then it is the individual duty (fardhain) of every Muslim, young or old, male or female, to free her. The Islamic scholars said that even if the Holy Ka‟bah is being demolished by people and you are running to save it, but then you hear that a Muslim woman has been imprisoned by the non-Muslims, then leave the Ka‟bah, let it be demolished, but free that Muslim woman. Do you know how big this duty on these Muslims is? And this is the reason… Allah knows that these people torture a Muslim woman. These low lives, these dogs. I think dogs are much better. Even animals don‟t do such torture.

Kamran Shahid: Like the torture the Americans have done.

Ismat: Yes. Imagine the torture that they lay her on a bed and tie her up. And then six men…you know how big an issue hijab is to us Muslims, and then you make her naked! Which religion and which world has allowed you to do this to the accused? They did this when they had not even convicted her with anything! She was not even a criminal in their law. And she has done no crime. They did not accuse her of terrorism. She is not a terrorist.

Kamran Shahid: Dr. Fowzia, please tell us, because obviously these things are very painful, but people have this question; was it the Pakistani government who took her to Afghanistan at the American‟s insistence? What happened? Why did it happen to her? I mean is she the only one to whom this was done, the torture and trial in America?

Dr. Fowzia: Actually, she is not the only one. Thousands! Not hundreds, but thousands.

Kamran Shahid: From Pakistan?

Dr. Fowzia: From Pakistan, from Yemen and from other Muslim countries. Aafia has just become a poster child for this torture and rendition, perhaps because of her education or because her family did not give up. Here and there, we continued this campaign. You know it matters.

Kamran Shahid: So, you think there are many other Pakistani women?

Dr. Fowzia: Yes, of course.

Kamran Shahid: In Afghanistan, in American torture cells?

Dr. Fowzia: Yes, of course. In many places, we don‟t know what they are going through. Just because of all this we did….she was supposed to be shot dead.

Kamran Shahid: Because she (Yvonne Ridley) is responsible, we must praise her (it is) because of her press conference actually (that) this case has been put for….

Dr. Fowzia: Got the momentum that it took…

Kamran Shahid: So, my question to you is, how did you get to know about this prisoner number 650, known as Aafia Siddiqui, was prisoner number 650

Yvonne Ridley: Well, I am a patron of Cageprisoners, a human rights organisation which focuses mainly on Guantanamo detainees, and I’ve filmed in Guantanamo for four days, and when I came back I met up with Moazzam Begg who was kidnapped from Pakistan and put on a rendition flight and landed in Kandahar, Bagram and then Guantanamo and I told him the terrible things that we had seen in Guantanamo and he said forget Guantanamo, there is a place that is even more dark, more deadly, more sinister, and that is Bagram, and he said, I saw two men being beaten to death in Bagram – being tortured to death; and he said, even now I wake up to hear a woman screaming, he said, every night a woman was screaming while I was held in Bagram, and I doubted him, I’d heard this before – he’d written about it in Enemy Combatant , and I said, look, don’t you think the woman’s screaming was a tape-recording – some mental torture to make you think your wife was next door? He said, well, when I got to Guantanamo, the other detainees said that they had also heard the woman screaming – and some of them had seen her. I then investigated more and discovered that the identity of this woman was Prisoner 650.

Kamran Shahid: That she was Aafia Siddiqui?

Yvonne Ridley: Well, I investigated and looked and checked, and in the end, we had to come to the conclusion that, yes, 650 is Aafia Siddiqui. I couldn’t believe that the American administration would have sanctioned the kidnap, torture and rendition of Aafia Siddiqui – and let’s not forget, when we talk about Aafia Siddiqui, we talk about Aafia Siddiqui plus three – her children. And then, in the midst of all of this, Aafia Siddiqui appears in a story which could only have come from a Hollywood plot, you know, this is the iconic picture, this is how she…

Kamran Shahid: Who obtained this picture?

Yvonne Ridley: That picture (on the right) was shown to me by the governor of Ghazni with a series of pictures of her taken, and what shocked me, I thought, and a lot of people around the world saw this picture and thought this is what she looked like after she had been shot, but actually, that is what she looked like before she was shot in a police cell in Ghazni police station and we’ve got some images to show you which show all the gunfire that the Americans fired off; there were 12 – more than 12 American soldiers crammed in this cell and behind the dividing curtain was Aafia, and she heard all this commotion and got up to see what was going on – I don’t even think she got near the curtain, the soldiers saw somebody moving and panicked and shot her . Now, what the Americans want us to believe, again, how stupid do they think the Pakistan media are, they want us to believe that she sprang from behind the curtain, seized the semi-automatic rifle, and fired it. In a room crowded with soldiers, this ‘highly-trained, al-Qaeda fanatic’ managed to fire off a gun and miss. If she’d swung a cat she’d have hit four soldiers immediately – the room was jammed with them, and we have the head of the counter-terrorism unit, a man called Abdul-Qadeer, telling me she never touched the gun.

Kamran Shahid: These images of the torture cell, which Yvonne Ridley talked about, we will try to show them to you, exclusively on this program. After this break…

Kamran Shahid: We will show you exclusive footage, for the first time on any channel or program in Pakistan, of the torture cell where Aafia Siddiqui was kept, where she was shot, allegedly, by US soldiers. See this footage. We will continue the program after that.

Kamran Shahid’s voice in background: In this exclusive video footage, our guest today in Frontline program Yvonne Ridley, took us to this place, the dramatic place where, according to America, Aafia Siddiqui picked up a gun against American soldiers and fired at them. On the other hand, Aafia Siddiqui‟s version is that this is the place where American soldiers fired at her. When local people were asked whether Aafia was behind this curtain, they replied, “Yes.” You can see here marks of the bullets allegedly fired by Americans on Aafia. When I sought details from the local (Afghan) governor, he told me that when he went to the room, he saw that an American had laid

down his gun on the floor and himself sat down. We Afghans too sat down at the place. That American placed his gun on the ground. Aafia picked up the gun and fired it. There was another ISAF soldier in the room, who shot Aafia as a reaction. We asked the local people whether they could identify which marks on the wall were of the bullets fired by Aafia. A local man said, “I was standing at the door when the two rounds were fired, which hit the wall as we can see. But, although she placed her hand on the gun, but I don‟t think she did the firing.” Ms. Ridley asked him whether all these bullet marks were from the Americans‟ guns. He replied, “Yes.” The governor was again asked what her condition was when he saw her at the time she fired at the Americans: was she drugged? He replied, “That she was alright, I saw her. She was not looking abnormal.” The governor was again asked whether she looked like the picture on the book at that time, and he replied yes. Ridley pressed that she did not look normal in the picture. The governor said, “I don‟t know why it appears like that. Maybe she had lost weight, maybe because she had not slept in a week. But, I do not know the exact reason.” Ridley insisted once again that she was not looking normal in the picture, but the governor repeated, “I don‟t know.” Ridley asked, “It is very astonishing that the crime was committed, allegedly, by Aafia in Afghanistan, but the trial is being held in New York!” The governor replied, “A crime is crime, the justice is justice.” Ridley insisted, “The crime took place in Afghanistan while Aafia is a Pakistani national, so why is the trial going on in New York?” The governor replied, “I don‟t know. I don‟t care for these things. People will have to go to a court and they should go to a court.”

Kamran Shahid: What treatment did Aafia Siddiqui receive from the American people and the court?

Dr. Fowzia: The treatment, let‟s see. Our brother too went to the court. We requested the court repeatedly to at least let the family talk to her before the trial, let the lawyers talk to her. Permission was not granted, not at all. Our brother was not allowed to meet her at all since the time she came to MDC (Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Centre). After that, when my brother came to court, she tried to turn back to look. There two US marshals standing on both sides of her, here and here, both men. When she tried to look back, the marshals physically spun her head to the front, manhandling her badly. He attended the whole trial, from the first day when Aafia came. He saw her on the first day of trial in handcuffs and fetters, pus seeping from her wounds, marshals and all that. My brother called me and said, “Sister, today I have

seen the oppressed and oppressor, extreme cruelty and the extremely oppressed under one roof!” But all these tortures are one thing. I, as the elder sister, and knowing Aafia, what she was and what she is: her life, her soul, everything was those kids. Taking those children away from her, I think there can be nothing greater than this…she dies the day they took away her children from her. Whatever else they are doing, they are doing it to a living corpse. I think the second time she died was when they stripped her and took off her clothes. But the day they took those small children away from her, I think there cannot be a bigger human coercion than this, and add to it that they tortured the kids in front of her.

Kamran Shahid: Did they torture the children?

Dr. Fowzia: Yes, it was said in court.

Ismat: Don‟t talk about … [unclear]. Be quiet.

Dr. Fowzia: I don‟t think there can be a greater brutality than that. Read the entire history of the world. I think even Genghis Khan did not do this.

Kamran Shahid: OK, tell us where was the (Pakistani) government negligent, or what negligence they could have avoided so that the case would not have gone this far?

Ismat: If the government wanted, she would not have gone there, she would have been here in two days. What are you talking about? The government is doing this to its own nationals. If the government wanted, she would not have gone there. Let‟s believe for a moment the story that they caught her in Afghanistan. But, you have a consulate in Afghanistan.

Ismat: …they should have said to Afghanistan that she is our national, give her to us, that is our order! Why are they doing our trial there (in the US) when we have an ambassador present there?

Kamran Shahid: What do you think, has this government has been has or hasn‟t done enough or should do more; you‟re still optimistic that this government can persuade America and the jury that convicted her as a criminal; is it possible for Pakistan to convince America and on what grounds?

Dr. Fowzia: Look… Pakistan…

Kamran Shahid: And Obama has his own future at stake. The huge public there, regardless of what Pakistan thinks, the media tilt there is that they do not look at Aafia in a positive light.

Dr. Fowzia: Yes of course; they portray her as a terrorist despite…

Kamran Shahid: If America did release her upon Obama‟s order, then it would cost him the next election and this would mean that he has released a terrorist… so how do you expect Obama to do this?

Dr. Fowzia/Ismat: She is not a terrorist.

Kamran Shahid: No, I am not saying that she is; you said that the people there think like that. So how is it that that America and Obama will take such a huge stake and bear the blame that they have released a terrorist for Pakistan‟s sake.

Dr. Fowzia: The thing is that Aafia is not a big thing in the US, only in New York where the trial has happened and there too only in tabloid papers has this case been reported much, but otherwise in the rest of the US nobody knows. She‟s not a big thing… even for Obama. Pakistan is the backbone of America. If Pakistan stops cooperation, even if they threaten not to cooperate, the Americans would kneel down and hand her back. The American State Department have said that they want to save face.

Kamran Shahid: The State Department has said this?

Ismat: They say they want to give her back.

Dr. Fowzia: She‟s not a big fish, they know. Both governments know she‟s nobody, she‟s very innocent and she hasn‟t done anything. This is just a face saver.

Kamran Shahid: So if it is a face saver, what is the strategy, Rehman Malik meets you, and Pakistani ambassador to the US meets you…

Dr. Fowzia: Look, they haven‟t even made an official demand. Lord Nazir Ahmed (British Lord) told us that that no official demand has been made, just many dinner talks…many dinner talks.

Kamran Shahid: So why are you expecting to have her back when they, the government of Pakistan are not even demanding her back?

Dr. Fowzia: If Allah wills, they will eventually. I have told you, I have faith in Allah and I have faith in the Pakistani people.

Kamran Shahid: What did Rehman Malik say to you in his last meeting, apart from about the children, with regards to Aafia?

Dr. Fowzia: He told us some strategies etc.

Kamran Shahid: What did he say?

Dr. Fowzia: He told us a strategy, which he said that you know obviously these kinds of strategies are not to be made public.

Kamran Shahid: But you tell me, are you optimistic that you can get her back here?

Dr. Fowzia: Of course, I say even now that if you stop the NATO supply line for 2 days, on the third day you will get not just Aafia but even the drone attacks will stop.

Kamran Shahid: This strategy was not told to you by Rehmanan Malik, was it?

Dr. Fowzia: No, I am saying this.

Ismat: We have been saying this for many days now…

Dr. Fowzia: I am saying this on your programme and I‟m telling the nation that let General Kiyani act like General Muhammad Bin Qasim and show everyone that for a daughter, just like he does for the protection of his whole nation, that he can also take a stand for a daughter.

Kamran Shahid: You should go to President Zardari as he is the elected president, not Kiyani. Why is it you have hope in him and not Zardari and the Prime Minister?

Dr. Fowzia: Have you not read the papers; Pakistan‟s strongest man, is Kiyani. I am going by what I‟ve been told.

Kamran Shahid: By?

Dr. Fowzia: By the media.

Kamran Shahid: Yes, but that‟s been written by the western media about Mr. Kiyani.

Dr. Fowzia: Yes, but they think that of him. So whoever they think highly of, let them listen to him.

Ismat: Had at least Mr. Kiyani re-enacted the role of Mohammad bin Qasim….

Kamran Shahid: Why can‟t Zardari sahib take the role of Mohammad bin Qasim? He is (constitutionally) the Commander in Chief of General Kiyani.

Ismat: What can I say…

Dr. Fowzia: Who knows, Allah might give him guidance and he does this job. I always used to say a couplet. I had lost all hope when the first time they told us Aafia is coming back but she didn‟t. Someone sent an SMS (text message) to me, and I don‟t know if I will say it right but the text message is:

Do not pin your hopes on kings and the worldly, rich people

This is indeed a great feat, which will be accomplished by the poor

Kamran Shahid: Fantastic. My last thing to you (Yvonne Ridley) is that these are the immediate family members of Aafia Siddiqui and I can understand their sentiments but with you being a journalist and not being a direct relation to Aafia Siddiqui, tell me pragmatically speaking while living in West is it possible if jury in US convicts a person, what sort of pressure would be on American president and would it be possible for him to oblige Pakistan in any way by release them?

Yvonne Ridley: What we are talking about is the most powerful man in the world: Barack Obama. If he wants to change the rules, if he wants to change the laws he will do it. George Bush threw out the Geneva conventions and created Guantanamo and bought us a new language: renditioning, water boarding, renditions and kidnap. Now, Barack Obama has the authority to throw it all out the window and say send this woman home.

Interview with Aafia’s son: Ahmed

Kamran Shahid: What is your name?

Ahmed: My name is Ahmed.

Kamran Shahid: Aafia Siddiqui is your mother. Would you like to say something to her? How much you miss her?

Ahmed: I want to say why have they imprisoned her and why did they imprison me?

Kamran Shahid: Do you want to give her any message, to your mother as a son?

Ahmed: I love you and I am waiting for you and you come back soon, if Allah permits.

காது குடையலாமா? காதை குடையிறதுதான் வேலையா? வேண்டாம்.

காதை குடையிறதுதான் வேலை

காதைப் பொத்திக் கொண்டு வந்தாள் அந்தப் பெண்மணி. காது வலியின் தாக்கத்தால் முகம் சோர்ந்திருந்தது. தெளிவாகப் பார்ப்பதற்காக காதைத் திருப்பி கூர்வெளிச்சப் பக்கம் திருப்ப முயன்றபோது, “தொடாதையுங்கோ, காதைத் தொட்டால் உயிர் போகிற வலி” என்றாள்.

“என்ன நடந்தது” என விசாரித்தேன். “வழமையாக காது கடிக்கிறது. திடீரென இப்படியாயிற்று” என்றாள்.

“காது கடித்தால் என்ன செய்வீர்கள்?” வினவினேன். “நெருப்புக்குச்சி, சட்டைப் பின், இயர்பட்ஸ் என்று எது கிடைத்தாலும் காதைக் குடையுறதுதான் வேலை” என்றான் கூட வந்த மகன்.

காது மென்மையானது. திடப்பொருட்களால் கிண்டியதால் உராய்வு ஏற்பட்டு கிருமி தொற்றிவிட்டது. நுண்ணுயிர் கொல்லி மருந்துகளும் வலி நிவாரணி மருந்துகளும் கொடுக்கக் குணமாயிற்று.

இன்னுமொரு இளம் பையன் நீச்சலடித்த பிறகு காதுவலியோடு துடித்து வந்தான். நீந்திய பிறகு காது அடைப்பது போல இருந்ததாம். காதுக்குள் தண்ணி போய்விட்டதென எண்ணி இயர்பட்ஸ் வைத்துத் துடைத்தான். வலி மோசமாகிவிட்டது. காதுக்குள் குடுமி இருந்தால் குளிக்கும்போதோ நீந்தும் போதோ நீர் உட்சென்றால் காது அடைக்கும். அது தற்காலிகமானது.

உட்காதுக்குள் நீர் போய்விட்டதோ என பயப்பட வேண்டியதில்லை. காதுக்குடுமி நீரில் ஊறிப் பருத்ததால் காது அடைப்பது போன்ற உணர்வு ஏற்படும். அது உலர அடைப்பு எடுபட்டுவிடும். இந்தப் பையன் இயர்பட்ஸ் வைத்து நீர் எடுக்க முயன்றபோது குடுமி காதின் உட்பக்கமாக நகர்ந்து செவிப்பறையை அழுத்தியதால் கடுமையான வலி ஏற்பட்டது. நல்ல காலம் செவிப்பறை உடையவில்லை. உடைந்திருந்தால் கேட்கும் திறனில் பாதிப்பு ஏற்பட்டிருக்கும்.

இப்படி எத்தனையோ சம்பவங்களைக் கூறலாம். குளிக்க வார்க்கும் போது கைக்குழந்தைக்கு காதுக்குள் தண்ணி போனது என அதைச் சுத்தப்படுத்தப்போய் குழந்தையைச் செவிடாக்கியிருக்கிறார்கள் பல பாட்டிமார்கள்.

காதுக்குள் தண்ணீர், காதுக்கடி, அரிப்பு என எத்தனையோ காரணங்களுக்காக தேவையற்று காதைச் சுத்தப்படுத்த முனைவதால் ஏற்படும் பாதிப்புகள் இவை. காது குப்பைக் கூடையோ, சுத்தப்படுத்த வேண்டிய உறுப்போ அல்ல. காதுக்குள் உற்பத்தியாகும் குடுமி, காதைப் பாதுகாப்பதற்காகவே சுரக்கிறது. அதை நீங்கள் அகற்ற வேண்டியதில்லை.

காதைச் சுத்தப்படுத்த வேண்டும் என நீங்கள் விரும்பினால் குளிக்கும்போது தலையைச் சற்று சரித்துப் பிடித்துக் கொண்டு காதுக்குள் கைகளால் ஏந்திய சுத்தமான தண்ணீரை ஊற்றுங்கள். பின் தலையை மறுபக்கமாகச் சரிக்க நீர் வெளியேறிவிடும். இவ்வாறு இரண்டு மூன்று தடவைகள் நீர் விட்டு சுத்தப்படுத்தலாம்.

காதுக்குள் விடும் நீர் தலைக்குள் போகாது, செவிப்பறை தடுக்கும். ஆயினும் காதிலிருந்து சீழ் அல்லது நீர் வடிபவர்கள் இவ்வாறு நீர் விட்டுச் சுத்தப்படுத்தக் கூடாது. இப்படிச் சுத்தம் செய்யும்போது காது அடைத்தால் பயப்படாதீர்கள். நீர் உலர்ந்ததும் அடைப்பு மறைந்துவிடும்.

காது குடையலாமா? ஒட்டு மொத்த இந்தியர்களுக்கும் இதே பிரச்னைதான்

எப்போது பார்த்தாலும் காதுக்குள் ஏதோ ‘குறுகுறு’வென்று இருந்து கொண்டே இருக்கிறது. அந்தச் சூழலில் எதையாவது எடுத்துக் குடையலாமா? குத்திக் கொள்ளலாமா? என்கிற அளவுக்கு அரிப்பும், வலியும் தாங்க முடியவில்லை.

நானும் தினம் ‘பட்ஸ்’ எல்லாம் போட்டு க்ளீன் பண்ணிப் பார்த்து விட்டேன். ஆனாலும், என் காதுப் பிரச்னை இன்னும் அதிகரித்துக் கொண்டுதான் இருக்கிறது. நான் என்ன செய்வது டாக்டர்? ஏன் அப்படி ஆகிறது?

டாக்டர் ரவி ராமலிங்கம் (காது, மூக்கு, தொண்டை நிபுணர்)

‘‘நீங்கள் உங்கள் பிரச்னைக்குக் காரணம். இதுவரை காதுக்குள் விட்டுக் குடைந்த ‘பட்ஸ்’தான் உங்களின் எதிரி. என்ன ஆச்சர்யமாகவும், அதிர்ச்சியாகவும் இருக்கிறதா?

உங்களுக்கு மட்டுமல்ல ஒட்டு மொத்த இந்தியர்களுக்கும் இதே பிரச்னைதான். உங்களுக்கு ஏற்பட்டிருப்பது ‘ஒடிடிஸ்எக்ஸ்டெர்னா’ எனப்படும் காது சம்பந்தப்பட்ட நோய்.

இது வருவதற்குக் காரணமே காதுக்குள் விரல், சாவி, குச்சியை விட்டு நோண்டுவது, ஊக்கை விட்டு குடாய்வது, இறகை உள்ளே விட்டுக் குடைந்து சுகம் காண்பது. அது மட்டுமில்லாமல் காதை சுத்தம் செய்கிறேன் பேர்வழி என்று ‘பட்ஸ்’ஸை உள்ளே விட்டுக் குடைவது ஆகியக் காரணங்களால்தான் இந்நோய் ஏற்படுகிறது.

அதுவும் உலக அளவில் இந்தியாதான் இந்நோயில் முன்னணி இடத்தைப் பிடித்திருக்கிறதாம்.

செவிப்பாதையின் மெல்லிய தோலில் வலி, வீக்கம், சிராய்ப்பு என்று சிறிய புண்களோடு ஆரம்பிக்கும் இந்நோய் முற்றும்போது காது கேட்கும் திறனையே நிறுத்தி விடும். அதோடு, நீச்சல் அடிக்கும்போது தண்ணீர் காதுக்குள் புகுந்திட இன்பெக்ஷன் ஏற்படக்கூடும். இதற்கு ‘ஸ்விம்மர்ஸ் இயர்’ என்று பெயர்.

காதைப் பொறுத்தவரையில் எந்த கிரிமியும் உள்ளே புகாது. அதற்கு பாதுகாக்கத்தான் (கீணீஜ்) வாக்ஸ் எனப்படும் மெழுகு போன்ற திரவம் இருக்கும். காதுக்குள் நுழையும் ஒலிக் காற்று என எல்லாவற்றையும் தாங்கிக் கொண்டு செவிப்பாதையில் பாதுகாவலனாக விளங்குகிறது.

காதினுள் புகும் நீர், தூசு போன்றவைகளை தன்னுடன் இணைத்துக் கொண்டு வெளியேற்றும் தன்மை கொண்டது. அதைப் பலர் ‘அழுக்கு’ என்று நினைத்து ‘பட்ஸை’க் கொண்டு வலுக்கட்டாயமாக வெளியேற்றுகின்றனர்.

இதனால் காதுப் பிரச்னைகள் இன்னும் அதிகரிக்கிறது. எனவே காதுக்குள் எதையும் விட்டுக் குடையாமல் இருந்தாலே பிரச்னை வராது.

பிரச்னையின் ஆரம்பக்கட்டத்திலேயே சொட்டு மருந்து, ஆயின்மெண்ட் எனக்குணப்படுத்திவிடலாம். ஆனால், அப்படியே விட்டு விட்டால் செவிப்பறையில் ஓட்டை விழுந்து காது கேட்காமல் போய் விடும். சர்க்கரை வியாதி இருக்கிறவர்களுக்கு பெரும்பாலும் இப்பிரச்னை வருவதாகக் கண்டுபிடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.


1.Make her feel secure; (sakina- tranquillity) QUIT BEING AGGRESSIVE

2. When you go home say ‘Assalmualikum. ‘ It kicks the shaitaan out of
your home!

3. Prophet (saw) described the wife as a fragile vessel and said to take
care of this vessel that’s fragile. Remember that
there is goodness in this vessel so treat it gently.

4. When you advise her, do so in privacy, in a peaceful environment. NOT
IN PUBLIC as it’s a type of slandering.

5. Be generous to your wife- it keeps her LOVED

6. Move and let her have your seat. It will warm her heart.

7. AVOID ANGER. HOW? Keep your wudu at all times. Prophet saw said if
your angry, sit down, if you’re sitting, then lie down. Follow the

8. Look good and smell great for your wife. IT keeps the LOVE!

9. Don’t be rigid. It will break you. Prophet (saw) said ‘I am the best
amongst you and I am the best to my wife’. Being rigid and harsh will
not bring you close to Allah and neither does it make you more of a man.

10. Listen to your wife-BE a GOOD LISTENER

11. YES to flattering NO to arguing. Arguing is like poison in a
marriage. Al zawai said ‘When Allah (swt) wants evil for people He will
them to argue amongst themselves’.

12. Prophet (saw) said to call your wives with the best name, any name
she loves to hear. Prophet (saw) called Aisha ‘ya Aish’ as an endearment.

13. Give her a pleasant surprise. I.e. if she loves watermelon, bring her
one out of the blue. It will grow the love in her heart.

14. Preserve your tongue! Prophet (saw) said the tongue will throw people
in the hell fire so watch what you say and how you say it!

15. All of us have shortcoming. Accept her shortcoming and Allah (swt)
will put barakh in your marriage.

16. TELL her you appreciate her. SHOW her you appreciate her.

17. Encourage her to keep good relation with her relative, her mum and
dad etc.

18. Speak with her with a topic of HER interest.

19. In front of her relative praise her. Confirm/ realise that she is
wonderful, and that she is a good person in front of her family.

20. Give each other gifts. You will love each other more. Prophet (saw)
said gifts increases love.

21. Get rid of the routine once in a while, surprise her with something,
it will get rid of the rust and polish it!

22. Husnul zaan- We have a demand from Allah (swt) that we have to think
good of people. Think good of your spouse.

23. Ignore some of her mistakes- pretend you did not see/hear some of her
small mistakes. It was a practise of Ali (RA). It’s like
putting a hole in your memory. Don’t save it in your memory!

24. Increase the drops of patience, especially when she is pregnant or
when she is on her monthly period.

25. Expect and respect her jealousy. Even Aisha (ra) used to get jealous.

26. Be humble. If your profession is good, respect that she is looking
after your children, she is much more than you, she is the
leader at home, her strength is your strength, and her success is your

27. Don’t put your friends above your wife.

28. Help your wife at home. Prophet (saw) used to help his wives at home
and he was the best of creation. He used to sew his own clothes.

29. Help her respect your parents, you can’t force her to love them, but
she can be helped to gradually love them.

30. Show your wife she is the ideal wife.

31. Remember your wife in your duaas. It will increase the love and
protect it.

32. Leave the past. It brings nothing but pain and grief. It’s not your
business. The past is for Allah (swt).

33. Don’t try to show her that you are doing her a favour by doing
something, like buying food for the house, because in reality we are the
courier of sustenance, not the providers, as Allah is the provider. It’s
also a way of being humble and thankful to Allah (swt)

34. Shaitaan is your enemy, not your wife. Sometime when husband and wife
are talking a fight breaks out, then shaitaan is present there
as a third person so he is the real enemy. It is not enough to hate the
shaitaan, but you have to see him as an enemy as Allah has commanded.
Shaitaan loves divorce. HE comes everyday and sits office and asks the
devils what they have done, some say i have made a person steal, or i
have made someone drink etc. And one devil will say i have made a man
divorce his wife, and he is crowned as the one who has done the best job.

35. Take the food and put it in her mouth. Prophet (saw) taught us this.
It’s a blessing. The food doesn’t just go to her stomach, but straight to

her heart. It increases the love and mercy between you.

36. Protect your wife from the evil of the shaitaan and mankind. She is
like a precious pearl that needs protecting from the envy of human
devils and shitaan.

37. Show her your smile. Smile at your wife. IT’S A CHARITY.

38. Small problems/ challenges can become a big problem. Or if there is
small thing she didn’t like and you keep repeating them anyway, it will
create a wall between you. Don’t ignore them as it can become big.

39. Avoid being harsh hearted and moody. Allah said of prophet (saw) ‘if
you were harsh hearted they (the companions) would have left you.’ It
confirms prophet (saw) was not harsh hearted, so GET RID OF IT.

40. Respect her thinking. It’s strength for you. Show you like her
thoughts and suggestions.

41. Help her to achieve her potential and help her to dig and find
success within as her success is your success.

42. Respect the intimate relationship and its boundaries. Prophet (saw)
said she is like a fragile vessel and she needs to be treated tenderly.
Sometime she may not be feeling well; you must respect and appreciate
that feeling.

43. Help her to take care of the children. Some men think it makes them
appear less of a man but in fact it makes you appear a bigger man
and more respected, especially in the sight of Allah (swt).

44. Use the gifts of the tongue and sweet talk her. Tell her she looks
great, be an artist. Pick and choose gifts of the tongue.

45. Sit down and eat with her and share food with her.

46. Let her know you are travelling. Don’t tell her out of the blue as
it’s against Islam. Tell her the date/ time of when you are coming back

47. Don’t leave the house as soon as trouble brews.

48. The house has privacy and secrecy. Once you take this privacy and
secrecy to your friends and family you are in danger of putting a
serious hole in your marriage. This secrecy stays home. Islam is against
leaving them out like a garage sale for anyone to come and pick
and choose.

49. Encourage each other for ibadah, i.e. plan a trip for hajj or umrah
together. It increases and strengthens the love when you help each
other perform a good deeds together i.e, do tahajuud together,or go to a
dars together etc.

50. Know her rights, not only written in paper but engraved in your heart
and engraved in your conscious.

51. Allah( swt) said ‘live with your wives in kindness.’ Treat them with
kindness and goodness. It means in happy times and in sadness treat
her with goodness and fairness.

52. Prophet (saw) showed that there is a messenger at the time of
intimacy which is foreplay. Don’t jump on your wife like an animal!

53. When you have a dispute with your wife don’t tell everyone. It’s
like leaving your wounds open to germs so be careful who you share your
problems and disputes with.

54. Show your wife you really care for her health. Good health of your
wife is your good health. To care for her health shows her that you love

55. Don’t think you are always right. No matter how good you are you have
shortcomings. You are not perfect as the only one who was perfect
in character was prophet (saw). Get rid of this disease.

56. Share your problems, your happiness, and your sadness with her.

57. Have mercy on her weakness. Have mercy when she is weak or strong as
she is the fragile vessel. Prophet (saw) said that your wife is a
trust in your hand.

58. Remeand
Mercy. AMEEN
mber you are her strength, someone to lean on in times of

59. Accept her as she is. Prophet (saw) said that women are created from
the rib which is bent. If you try to straighten her you will break her
(divorce). Prophet (saw) said that you may dislike one habit in her but
you will like another manner in her so accept her as she is.

60. Have good intention for your wife all the time, Allah monitors your
intention and your heart at all times. Allah (s.w.t) said Among His Signs
that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find
repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy.
Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect.

May Allah (swt) fill your homes and heart with tranquillity, love

பதக் மியான்:
மறக்கடிக்கப்பட்ட தியாகி, 1917 இல் காந்தியின் உயிரைக் காப்பாற்றியவர்

பாட்னா:1917 ஆம் ஆண்டு இந்திய சுதந்திரப் போராட்ட இயக்கத்தின் இரு தலைவர்கள்- ஒருவர் மகாத்மா காந்தி மற்றொருவர் டாக்டர் ராஜேந்திர பிரசாத். இருவரும் பீகார் மாநிலத்தின் அன்றைய சம்பரன் மாவட்டத்தின் தலைநகராக விளங்கிய மோடிஹாரிக்கு செல்கின்றார்கள்.
இண்டிகோ பண்ணைத் தோட்டத்தில் வேலைப்பார்த்து வந்த தொழிலாளர்களின் மோசமான நிலையை கண்டறிவதற்காக சென்றார்கள். அவர்களின் நிலையைக் கண்டு அதற்கு காரணமான பிரிட்டீஷ் அரசிற்கெதிரான போராட்டத்தை துவக்கினார்கள். இதுதான் பிரிட்டீஷாருக்கு எதிராக காந்தியடிகள் துவக்கிய முதல் போராட்டமாகும்.

இண்டிகோ பண்ணைத் தோட்டத்தின் மேலாளராக பொறுப்பு வகித்த வெள்ளைக்காரன் காந்தியை இரவு உணவுக்கு அழைக்கிறான். காரணம் காந்தி சாப்பிடப்போகும் உணவில் விஷம் கலக்கப்பட்டு அவரைக் கொல்வதுதான் அவனது நோக்கமாகும். அந்த பிரிட்டீஷ் மேலாளரான ஆங்கிலேயனிடம் சமையல்காரராக வேலைப்பார்த்தவர் பதக் மியான். அவரிடம் ஒரு கோப்பை பாலில் விஷம் கலந்து காந்திக்கு கொடுக்குமாறு கூறுகிறான்.ஆனால் பதக் மியானின் தேசப்பற்று இந்தக் கொடுஞ்செயலுக்கு இடம் தரவில்லை. அவர் கோப்பையை எடுத்துச்சென்று காந்தியிடம் விஷயத்தை கூறிவிடுகிறார். இதற்கு டாக்டர் ராஜேந்திரபிரசாத் நேரில் கண்ட சாட்சியாவார்.

இதன் மூலம் பதக் மியான் காந்தியின் உயிரை காப்பாற்றுகிறார். காந்தியின் உயிர் காப்பாற்றப்பட்டதால் காந்தி இந்திய சுதந்திரப் போராட்டத்தின் முக்கிய அங்கமாக விளங்கி இந்தியாவின் தேசத்தந்தை எனப் போற்றப்படுகிறார். ஆனால் இச்சம்பவத்திற்கு பின்னர் பதக் மியான் மிகப்பெரிய விலையைக் கொடுக்க வேண்டியதாயிற்று.

பதக் மியான் காந்திஜிக்கு விஷம் கொடுக்காததால் பிரிட்டீஷ் மேலாளர் கடும் கோபம் அடைந்து பதக் மியானை சிறையிலடைத்து கடுமையாக சித்திரவதைச் செய்கிறார். அவருடைய வீடு சுடுகாடாக மாற்றப்பட்டது. பின்னர் அவரும் அவருடைய குடும்பமும் அவர் வாழ்ந்து வந்த கிராமத்தை விட்டும் துரத்தப்பட்டனர். இந்திய தேசபிதாவின் உயிரைக் காப்பாற்றிய அந்த மனிதர் மறக்கடிக்கப்பட்டார்.

ஆனால் காந்தியைக்கொன்ற நாதுராம் கோட்சேவை தெரியாத நபர் இல்லை எனலாம். 1950 ஆம் ஆண்டு டாக்டர் ராஜேந்திரபிரசாத் ஜனாதிபதியாக இருக்கும்பொழுது மோடிஹாரிக்கு சுற்றுப்பயணம் சென்றபொழுது பதக் மியானின் தன்னலமற்ற தியாகத்திற்காக 24 ஏக்கர் நிலத்தை அன்பளிப்பாக அளிக்க உத்தரவிட்டார்.

60 ஆண்டுகள் தாண்டிவிட்டன, இதுவரை மறைந்த ஜனாதிபதியின் உத்தரவு இன்னும் நிறைவேற்றப்படாமலேயே உள்ளன. மறக்கடிக்கப்பட்ட அந்தத்தியாகி 1957 ஆம் ஆண்டு மரணித்துவிட்டார். தற்பொழுது அவருடைய ஐந்து பேரர்களும் மேற்கு சம்பரன் மாவட்டத்தில் உள்ள அக்வா பர்ஸாவ்னி கிராமத்தில் வாழ்ந்து வருகிறார்கள். தனது அன்றாட வாழ்க்கைக்காக இடம் புலர்ந்து தொழிலாளர்களாக வேலைப்பார்த்து வருகிறார்கள்.ஏனெனில் இவர்களுக்கு கல்வியறிவு இல்லை. அவர்கள் அரசு அதிகாரிகளைச் சென்று பார்த்து முறையிட்டபொழுது அவர்களுடைய அனைத்து முயற்சிகளும் வீணானதுதான் மிச்சம்.

சமீபத்தில் இந்தியாவின் ஜனாதிபதியான பிரதீபா பாட்டீல் இவர்களின் பரிதாப நிலையை அறிந்து இந்தியாவின் முதல் ஜனாதிபதியால் அன்பளிப்பாகக் கொடுக்க உத்தரவிட்ட நிலம் அவர்களுக்கு கிடைக்க உறுதியளித்துள்ளார். இது காந்திஜியின் 62-வது நினைவுதினத்திற்கு எட்டு நாட்களுக்கு முன்பு கடந்த ஜனவரி 22 ஆம் தேதி ஹிந்துஸ்தான் டைம்ஸ் என்ற பத்திரிகை பதக் மியான் குடும்பத்தின் மோசமான நிலையைப் பற்றி வெளியிட்ட கட்டுரையைப் படித்த பிறகு தான் பிரதீபா பாட்டீல் உத்தரவிட்டார்.

ஜனாதிபதியின் சிறப்பு அதிகாரி அர்ச்சனா தத்தா சம்பரன் கிழக்கு மற்றும் மேற்கு மாவட்ட மாஜிஸ்ட்ரேட்டுகளுக்கு பீகார் அரசு ஜனாதிபதியின் உத்தரவை நடைமுறைப்படுத்துகிறதா என்பதை பற்றி அறிக்கை அளிக்க உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளார். இதனைத் தொடர்ந்து பீகார் முதல்வரும் இவ்விஷயத்தில் அக்கறையோடு திர்ஹுட் டிவிசனல் கமிசனருக்கு பதக் மியானின் குடும்பத்திற்கு உதவுமாறு உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளார்.

ஜனாதிபதியின் உத்தரவு நடைமுறைப்படுத்தப்படுமா அல்லது காந்திஜியின் அடுத்த நினைவுதினம் வரை கிடப்பில் போடப்படுமா என்பதை பொறுத்திருந்து பார்ப்போம்.


HIGH SCHOOL IN AMERICA — 1959 vs. 2009

Only when u know its rhythm

Frndship is a dream,which comes true,
Only when u believe in it

Only when u share ur kingdom wid it
