Multiple angles emerge in death of 11 Pakistani Hindu refugees

[ad_1]

On 9th August, dead bodies of 11 Pakistani Hindu refugees, all members of a family, were found in Jodhpur district in Rajasthan. More details have been revealed during the investigation that unearthed the struggle of three brave sisters. They all died after consuming poisonous liquid. The story behind Hindu refugees’ mass suicide has shocked everyone who heard what exactly forced the family to take such a drastic step.

The plight of Hindus in Pakistan is not something that is hidden from anyone. Their problems do not end after they come to India to take refuge. The same happened in the story of Lakshmi, Priya, and Suman of Sindhiani Tehreek, Sindh Freedom Movement Sangad unit. They fought and tolerated every atrocity in Pakistan. Their parents, brothers-in-law and children came to India as refugees with a hope to have a new chance to live peacefully.

The three sisters came to India after sending their family. They got permanent residency for five years and started living in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. However, the network of agents and guarantors was waiting for them as vultures to take advantage of their situation. As per the rule, an Indian can become the guarantor for someone who has come to take refuge in India. However, they all came on a visitor visa and decided to take the help of a leader of migrants who became their guarantor.

The Foreigner Registration Officer (FRO) does not allow residency without a guarantor. After getting permission to stay in India, the family moved to a colony of refugees in Anganwa. According to an exclusive report published in Dainik Bhaskar, the colony head wanted to control the three sisters just like their sisters-in-law. As the sisters-in-law were not living with their husbands, they started the exercise to bring them home.

Struggling to survive with agent-nexus controlling the area

The three sisters were forced to marry to deaf and dumb men. They settled in a field in Dechu that was illegal as their residence was in Jodhpur. By June, the visas of the three sisters and their parents got over. When they applied for extending their residency in India, the application was rejected as the guarantor showed displeasure.

In the end, after all the struggle, the three sisters who fought for the independence of Sindh decided to end their lives. They preferred to embrace death rather than going back to Pakistan. During the investigation, it was revealed that the sisters-in-law were making it difficult for them to stay in India. They filed a police case against the sisters that led to the rejection of their application of extending residency.

According to the family’s relatives, Kewalrm’s wife Dhandhidevi and Ravi’s wife Sharifa here earlier. When Kewalram and Ravis aged parents and children shifted to India, they refused to stay with them. The family quarrel led to the fight for child custody. The two sisters-in-law are aunt and niece by relation. Chetan Bhil, the head of the colony, came to India in 2012 with a religious group.

He was the one who gave shelter to the family. However, when the three sisters shifted to India, the dispute started. Gangaram and Bhagchand are the agents who also came from Pakistan. Bhagchand claims that he had helped 2000 migrants to date to get visas. Sunil Bhati is the local leader who agreed to become their guarantor. He was threatening the family after they had arguments with Chetan. It is alleged that the police arrested Lakshmi and abused the family on his complaint.

Police found evidence of abuse

The local DSP allegedly threatened the family that he will send them back to Pakistan. There are allegations that female constables also abused the family. Inspector-General of Police, Jodhpur Range, Navjyoti Gogoi said that the case is sensitive, and they have committed suicide. Lakshmi made a video before her death and wrote everything in her diary. The police are using them as evidence in the investigation.

Police said that they are checking the records based on Lakshmis video and diary. Also, they are questioning the people who were named by Lakshmi in the video and her diary. Gogoi said that several pieces of evidence prove that local leaders and police abused the family. He said whoever was involved in the case will be punished as per the law. However, the process will take time.

The ISI angle to the story

Based on the story of Dainik Bhaskar, OpIndia spoke to Omendra Ratnu from the organization Nimitekam. This organization helps the Pakistani Hindu migrants in Rajasthan. He denied the news and said that these are all lies that are being spread in the media. He said, under the CAA, the Government of India would grant citizenship to 31,000 displaced people during the Corona period. Thus this news is false.

He said that Pakistans ISI does not want Hindus to flee to India. They want to put fear in their minds that they are not safe in India. He said due to such news, many victims in Pakistan have converted to Islam. This is the reason such news run in media. He said the family committed suicide because of personal matters.

Omendra said that the incident neither has any connection to Congress nor any Jihadi link. He claimed that the girl named Lakshmi wanted to dominate the family. She was educated and was very persuasive. In the end, the family was forced to commit suicide. He said there is only one person from the family who is alive. Only his statement should be believed. He said there is an ISI connection to this conspiracy.

Sanders and Schumer call on McConnell to hold hearings to fight election conspiracy theories – KTVZ

Sanders and Schumer call on McConnell to hold hearings to fight election conspiracy theories - KTVZ

[ad_1]

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of New York are calling on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to create a new bipartisan committee focused on election integrity and schedule hearings to reassure Americans over a process President Donald Trump has repeatedly sought to undermine.

There is growing anxiety among Democrats, and some Republicans, that Trump will not only continue to sow doubt over the legitimacy of the coming election but throw the subsequent count into chaos by declaring victory before all the votes can be tallied, including the millions that will arrive by mail.

In a letter to McConnell, Sanders and Schumer quote back the Kentucky senator’s own words, in which he attested to the reliability of mail-in voting by citing its successes in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, which have been using the system for years.

Trump has repeatedly questioned the validity of mail-in voting, promoted conspiracy theories questioning election security, called on supporters to act as unsanctioned “poll watchers,” and suggested that the absence of a clear result by the evening of November 3 would in some way cast doubt on the eventual outcome. Key allies in powerful positions, like Attorney General Bill Barr, have followed suit. Barr has persisted in puffing up a debunked claim that ballots received by mail would somehow strip the sender of their privacy — ignoring well-established safeguards.

By escalating the matter now, Sanders and Schumer are responding to growing concern, in partisan and nonpartisan spaces, that Americans are not adequately prepared for the potential of a longer-than-usual wait for results or Trump’s willingness to short-circuit the democratic process if he smells defeat.

“Democrats and Republicans in Congress must come together to ensure that we have a free and fair election where every vote is cast and counted without intimidation,” Sanders told CNN, “where no one has to put his or her health in danger to cast a ballot, and where we have full confidence in the results.”

The proposed hearings would invite a cross-section of election officials from across the country to testify to the security and reliability of mail-in, early- and in-person voting — subjects on which Sanders and Schumer, again, referenced McConnell’s own words.

“Despite the clear security of our vote-by-mail system, some have continued to undermine it with unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud,” they wrote. “As you have correctly said, people ‘can vote early, you can vote on Election Day, or you can drop it in the mail,’ and that voters should ‘not worry about your vote not counting.’”

The minority leader and Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, also want more detailed discussion about the fraught hours, or days, after the polls close and a real-time watch of the election horse race potentially swings from one candidate to another.

“We know a number of states may well be counting ballots for a period of time after Election Day, and that those votes may be determinative in this election,” the senators wrote to McConnell. “To avoid disinformation, conspiracy theories, and suspicion about results, we must understand the likely timeline for this process.”

The letter goes on to reference the recent war games-style preparations conducted by a group called the Transition Integrity Project, a bipartisan gathering of operatives and academics that made headlines when some of the outcomes of their exercises — including “both street-level violence and political impasse” — were reported on in late July.

“A bipartisan group of experts and officials have studied multiple scenarios where the outcome of the election was not immediately known. Some of these scenarios resulted in unrest and even violence,” Sanders and Schumer wrote, suggesting the Senate should elevate similar discussions and familiarize the public with the uncertainties ahead. “We would like to hear from the most knowledgeable people in the country as to how we can do everything possible to make sure that the election and the period afterward is secure and peaceful.”

HHS official sorry for conspiracy theory video

[ad_1]

HHS supported Caputo, with a statement that called him a critical, integral part of the presidents coronavirus response, leading on public messaging as Americans need public health information to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.

There was no immediate statement from the White House.

Attempts to reach Caputo were unsuccessful.

On Capitol Hill, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., called on Azar to fire Caputo, accusing the spokesman of trying to interfere with CDC reports to the medical and scientific community, as well as the public at large. And Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called on Azar himself to resign, citing interference with the CDC as one example of what he termed the administration’s failures.

Officials at CDC have privately complained of recent efforts by political appointees at main HHS to try to edit or press for changes in the agency’s weekly MMWR publications, a go-to resource for public health professionals.

MMWR articles are technical, but they reveal telling details. One published earlier this year noted that while Trump’s travel restrictions dramatically reduced travel from China in February, nothing was being done at that time to restrict travel from Italy and Europe, where the coronavirus was spreading widely and rapidly. Analysis of virus samples from hard-hit New York in March suggested it was introduced there from Europe and other parts of the U.S., the CDC article reported.

Caputo is an unswerving Trump loyalist. His recent book, The Ukraine Hoax, claims the presidents phony impeachment was rooted in a vast conspiracy.
