NCERT books – A lesson in how not to make text books – It is fast becoming an agent of hindutwa and a national disaster too –

In its anxiety to conform to the “Hindutva” view of the past, NCERT seems to have blurred the distinction between myth and history. The history textbooks recently released by it are not only biased but also reminiscent of the out-of-date historical writing of a century ago, say “Marxist” historians, who have analysed these books.

“From the days of Ramayana India had close links with Sri Lanka,” says NCERT’s new class VI textbook India and the World.The incident of Rama’s invasion of Sri Lanka and the killing of its ruler Ravana figures in no history of Sri Lanka; nor, for that matter, is the story recognised as historical even in the textbook under review, points out historian Irfan Habib. “How can then Indo-Sri Lankan relations have begun with the Ramayana?” he asks.

“Hills and mountains are also given sanctity by Hinduism. Mount Kailasa and Vaikuntha (the abode of Siva and Vishnu) and rivers such as Ganga, Saraswati and Kaveri are considered holy,” says the book.”One needs to go to China to revere Kailasa, but how does one go to Mount Vaikuntha (paradise)?” wonders Habib.

According to him, the books try to project the Indian civilisation as having its sole fountainhead in the “Vedic civilisation”, which has been shown to embrace the Indus civilisation as well. In the class XI book Ancient India, the cow is said to be “aghanya” (not to be killed) but no reference is made to “goghna” (the killing of cow for a special person), points out historian Romila Thapar. Similarly, the class VI book says, “Vedas prescribe punishment for injuring or killing the cow by expulsion from the kingdom or by death penalty, as the case may be.”

Where precisely these punishments are mentioned is not stated, points out Habib, adding that the statement occurs not in the Vedas but in the much later sutras/smritis.
The class XI book on ancient India says the glaring evil of the jati system was untouchability. “But untouchability was tied to varna and not to jati. This is another attempt to disallow any tarnishing of the brahmanical systems,” says Thapar.

The same book says that the “nishka” was a coin”; 10 pages later it says there is no evidence of the use of coins in the later Vedic age.”Yet it is also said that money-lending was in vogue. The two statements contradict each other,” observes Thapar.

According to the books, all substantive scientific discoveries — from zero and decimal placement of numerals to heliocentric astronomy — were already made in the “Vedic Civilisation”.

The fact, according to critics, is that when the art of writing was unknown, positional values could not just have been given to the digits. In the Brahmi script, until the 6th century AD there was no symbol for zero.

One of the books says that the Vedic people knew that the earth moves on its own axis and around the sun”. The fact, according to critics, is that Ayrabhatta, who came many centuries later, was the first astronomer in India to present this hypothesis as this textbook itself notes on a subsequent page.

The Class XI book on ancient India says Pushyamitra’s assassination of Brihadratha is the only one in Indian history. It forgets Ajatashatru or the five parricides of that period, says Thapar. The attempt is to show that the crime of regicide was brought in by Muslims, feels Habib.

The class VI book says, “At the time of Alexander’s attack, Indian kings behaved cowardly (sic) and indifferently. This hurt Chanakya deeply and filled him with anger. To defend the country and to get rid of the weak rulers, Chanakya encouraged his students to raise an army…”.

Observes Habib: “Such patriotic sentiments that are attributed to Chanakya do not occur even in the traditional lore (for example in ‘Mudrarakshasa’) and are apparently taken from a TV serial.”

Hindu Man Marries A Female Rat After Claiming It Is The Reincarnation Of His First Wife


An unusual wedding took place when a man decided to marry a female rat, claiming the rodent was a reincarnation of his first wife.

Chidhatma Basu, 41, was left devastated when his wife died in a car accident earlier in January 2017.

He was left with four young children to look after and struggled for months, until one day, he made an unusual encounter.

Mr Basu said: “This little female rat showed up on my doorstep, and it had my wife’s eyes and nose.”

He claims he quickly understood that the rodent was the reincarnation of his deceased wife when he offered it a cookie.

He said: “I offered it my wife’s favorite cookies, and it devoured it just like she would have done.”

He claims the animal was immediately affectionate, and even looked at him the same way that his wife did.

It was then Mr. Basu consulted temple officials about the incident and was assured that the rat was, indeed, his reincarnated wife.

A wedding ceremony was quickly performed between the ‘loving’ couple by a Hindu priest who told Mr Basu he is extremely lucky.

Malalayam Superstar Suresh Gopi reveals his mind – I want to be a Brahmin next birth because the thread wearing man is the god in flesh and blood on earth.

  • At a time when the debate on not allowing Dalits to get involved in temple poojas is raging, Suresh’s declaration is seen as completely blind to the social reality of his country.

“I believe in rebirth. In my next birth, I want to belong to the community who wear sacred thread [of Brahmins] and want to be the tantri of Sabarimala. I want to be the head priest or at least the lower priest, so that I can touch the god and give god a bath,” Suresh Gopi said in his speech.

In a time that sees debates on not allowing Dalits to get involved in temple poojas is raging, Suresh’s declaration is seen as either completely blind to the social reality of his country, or deliberately casteist.

“I think that all who wear threads should be considered as god,” the actor turned MP further said.

That is ironic, considering it is in diametrically opposed to his famous dialogue in the movie Paithrukam, where he says, “I am not a Brahmin, I am a human being. I have torn off my thread. I have cut off that superstitious  thread much before.”

This isn’t the first time this has happened. There have been instances earlier where he has shown that there is no correlation between his real-life ideologies and his on-screen ones.

His standing is being debated hot and the actor trolled badly in Kerala for the last few days.

Islam and Sex Abuse ~ Islamic doctrines are rife with promotion of several types of sexual deviance and abuse ~

~ In both the Quran and the hadith, it is written that numerous types of sexual assault, ranging from rape to pedophilia, are justified in the name of Islam. The Quran and the hadith both condone sexual assault — and in many cases, even justify such acts as “holy” or “sacred.”

In order to properly analyze this topic and how it relates to Islam, we must take a look at various factors. One of these factors regards a man who was the founder and holiest prophet of Islam: Muhammad. According to several verses in the Quran, the prophet Muhammad was the perfect man whose character was divine and to be replicated in all ways possible. This has been described in several verses, such as Quran 33:21, Quran 68:4, Quran 4:80, Quran 4:59, and Quran 5:92. Knowing this, we must ask ourselves: what kind of man was Muhammad?
Muhammad was a man who carried out many acts in his life, but this article will only analyze his acts as they relate to sex abuse. According to historians and even the holy scripture in the hadith, Muhammad was a man of many wives. One of his wives, however, was not of the mature, proper age when she married Muhammad, nor was she of the mature, proper age when Muhammad forced himself on her. In this sense, the “mature” and “proper” age refers to the age at which it is appropriate for a woman (or a man) to become married and have sexual intercourse. In Sunnah: Sahih Bukhari 7:62:64, it is written as follows:

“Narrated Aisha: that the Prophet (ﷺ) married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., until his death).

This is an example of holy Islamic scripture saying bluntly that Muhammad, the holy prophet of Islam who is considered to be on an exalted standard of moral character, was a child rapist. There is obviously an enormous problem with a child rapist being praised as a perfect man in the scripture for an ideology with over 1.8 billion adherents in the world — a number that is also growing rapidly due to high birth rates among Muslims.

Not only does the hadith describe Muhammad’s marriage to a six year old and his sexual abuse of this same child just three years later, but in Sunnah: Sahih Muslim 8:3371, it also describes another particular incident where Muhammad was said to have participated in the kidnapping, rape, and enslavement of a group of women. The verse goes as follows:

“Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid-conception.) But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.”

On this particular incident, Muhammad, as well as several other men, were traveling on their military campaign against the Banu Mustaliq tribe. After defeating a group of enemy fighters from the tribe, Muhammad and his jihadi soldiers captured the women of the tribe, raped them, and sold them into slavery. What makes this verse especially despicable is that the main concern of it is the use of al-’azl — otherwise known in the contemporary sense as the “pullout method.”

Yes, you read that right. The verse goes far enough into detail to the point that it explains what al-’azl is, and the purpose of it. So, what we know from this verse is that Muhammad not only participated in the kidnapping, raping, and enslavement of women, but he even condoned the use of the “pullout method” al-’azl so that his jihadi soldiers would not impregnate their victims.

A third example in the hadith of Muhammad’s sex abuse is detailed in Sunnah: an-Nasa’i 4:36:3411, where it is said that Allah himself allows for Muhammad to own slaves that he may sexually exploit from time to time. The verse is written as follows:

“It was narrated from Anas, that the Messenger of Allah had a female slave with whom he had intercourse, but ‘Aishah and Hafsah would not leave him alone until he said that she was forbidden for him. Then Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed: ‘O Prophet! Why do you forbid (for yourself) that which Allah has allowed to you.’ until the end of the Verse.”

Another example of sex abuse in Islam is the concept known as “those your right hands possess.” While this phrase is written numerous times in the Quran, such as in Quran 4:2 — Quran 4:3, Quran 4:23 — Quran 4:24, and Quran 33:50, it remains unclear to many people what the actual meaning is unless people are willing to dive deeper into the meaning and accept a painful truth about Islam. The verses stated here are written as follows:
Quran 4:2 — “And give to the orphans their properties and do not substitute the defective [of your own] for the good [of theirs]. And do not consume their properties into your own. Indeed, that is ever a great sin.
Quran 4:3 — …And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].”

Quran 4:23 — Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father’s sisters, your mother’s sisters, your brother’s sisters, your sister’s daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives’ mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.

Quran 4:24 — …And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.”

Quran 33:50 — “O Prophet, indeed We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have given their due compensation and those your right hands possess from what Allah has returned to you [of captives] and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who emigrated with you and a believing woman if she gives herself to the Prophet [and] if the Prophet wishes to marry her, [this is] only for you, excluding the [other] believers. We certainly know what We have made obligatory upon them concerning their wives and those their right hands possess, [but this is for you] in order that there will be upon you no discomfort. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.”

The meaning of the phrase “those your right hands possess” is simple: slaves captured after their people have been defeated. As well-renowned Islamic scholar Abdullah Yusuf Ali wrote in his translation of the Quran as a citation for Quran 4:24, “those your right hands possess” can be bluntly explained as “captives in a jihad.” This is a concept that is not alien to Islamic groups such as Boko Haram, who kidnapped 276 female students from a school in Nigeria in April of 2014, or ISIS, who, according to one report by The Economist, has taken as much as 2,000 women and children and sold or distributed them as sex slaves. Another report by The Daily Mail details the findings of Matthew Barber, a scholar of Yazidi history at the University of Chicago, which state that ISIS took captive an estimated 4,800 women and children to be sold into slavery or kept as sex slaves by ISIS fighters.

Another unfortunate case of sex abuse committed by Muslims is the child sexual exploitation scandal in Rotherham, a story unearthed into the mainstream dialogue in January of 2011 by The Times reporter Andrew Norfolk. Norfolk repeatedly pressed the issue of children who were being kidnapped by Muslim grooming gangs in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England and sold into human trafficking rings where they would in turn be sexually abused. These events were said to have taken place from as far back as the 1980s all the way to today. The abuse included things such as gang rape, threats of rape or death to the victims’ families, and forcing victims to watch as other victims were raped and abused. Some reports even state that victims were doused with gasoline and threatened to be set on fire by their abusers. The number of victims was estimated to be at least 1,400 young girls ranging in age from as young as 11 years old to as young as 15 years old.

The perpetrators, Muslim men who the majority of which were typically British men of Pakistani descent, are yet another example of British-Pakistani Muslim men who are greatly overrepresented in sexual offenses in the UK. The attackers are said to have targeted young, white British girls in their abductions. Some of the men arrested for their sexual crimes against children in Rotherham even shouted “Allahu Akbar” while in the courtroom.

The issue of grooming gangs in the UK, which has been deemed to be an epidemic by some observers, was not spoken of very much in the UK for many years — despite the issue being around for several decades. A young woman by the name of ‘Emma’ who was one of the victims of the horrific events in Rotherham even reported that British authorities attempted to silence her and told her not to mention the attacker’s ethnicity when she reported the rape at the age of 13. Another repugnant example of attempts to silence the victims of the Rotherham child sex ring happened just this month when Muslim Labour MP Naz Shah retweeted a tweet from a parody account on Twitter saying that the abused girls in Rotherham need to “shut their mouths for the good of diversity.” Some individuals have made the claim that these attempts to silence the victims are motivated by political correctness and the attempt to counter “racist attitudes.”

Lastly, we come to the unfortunate example of European countries facing a sexual assault crisis directly as a result of mass immigration of Muslim migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. Migrants that come in numbers ranging from the hundred thousands to the millions have gone into European countries and have brought third-world cultures and practices into first-world countries. This has resulted in the clear Islamization of Germany — women have been mistreated, raped, and abused — and the German government only allows for it to continue. One display of this Islamization that has occurred is shown in the German state of Bavaria, where a school sent a letter to the parents of students warning them not to allow their daughters to wear any clothing that may be deemed revealing, because 200 incoming Syrian migrants had just been settled next to the gym (which ended up being closed as a result of this migrant settlement.)

The school’s headmaster Martin Thalhammer was quoted as saying that modest clothing should be adhered to in order to “avoid discrepancies.” Thalhammer also said that revealing tops, blouses, or short minskirts could “lead to misunderstandings.”

This comes as an unsurprising consequence of Germany’s extreme immigration policies. The trend seems to be that the more Muslim migrants a country takes in from Islamic countries, the more that country’s liberal and free culture will be eroded. Germany is not alone with this problem, even though the country has taken in more migrants than all other European countries (more than twice as many as any other European country.) In Germany alone, crimes committed by Muslim migrants rose by 79% from 2014 to 2015 — with there being 1,688 cases of sexual assault on adults and children, as well as 458 rapes. Crime rose an additional 52.7% from 2015 to 2016 — with many of these crimes also being sexual offenses. One article by ex-Muslim extremist turned anti-extremism activist Maajid Nawaz details the urgency of dealing with the sexual assault epidemic in Germany and the drastic consequences of ignoring it due to political correctness.

To summarize the points made in this piece, I will state the main ideas already written here:

Point 1/3: It is true that Islamic scripture promotes sexual assaults such as rape and pedophilia, and that this is a major problem considering these scriptures are used as a life manual by over 1.8 billion people in the world who are growing in number.

Point 2/3: This has proven to be a reality that is having a terrible effect on the world, as shown by the horrific acts by Boko Haram, ISIS, and Muslim migrants in Europe.

Point 3/3: We must stop allowing political correctness and cultural relativism to make us turn a blind eye to atrocities promoted in the Quran and hadith that are acted out in the real world by Muslims.

Ram Rahim’s income: With no need to pay taxes, the earnings are unimaginable ~ Dera’s income in 2010-’11 was Rs 165,248,455. In the year 2011-’12, it grew to Rs 202,099,999. Moreover, in the 2012-13, it touched Rs 290,818,760 ~

All eyes are on the Panchkula CBI court today which will pronounce a verdict in a sexual exploitation case against Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insaan.
Ram Rahim is the chief of Dera Sacha Sauda, which was started in 1948 by ascetic Mastana Balochistani. The Dera Sacha Sauda describes itself as ”spiritual organisation”.
The sect claims to have more than sixty million followers, mostly Dalit Sikhs. Baba Ram Rahim has a massive following, especially in Punjab and Haryana. He was born in Ganganagar in Rajasthan on August 15, 1967. He was born in a farmer’s family.
The sect has property worth over billions of rupees. According to a report in The Financial Express, Dera had daily income of Rs 16,44,833 three years ago.
It cites a Jansatta report which says in 2010-11, Dera’s income was Rs 165,248,455. In the year 2011-12, it grew to Rs 202,099,999. Moreover, in the 2012-13, it touched Rs 290,818,760.
Dera Sacha Sauda and the organisations related to it enjoy tax exemption under Section 10(23) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.
The Dera Sacha Sauda has been involved in public service activities such as large-scale blood donation camps and rehabilitation centres.
The self-styled godman has also directed and acted in movies such as MSG: The Messenger of God, MSG 2 the Messenger, Jattu Engineer, Hind Ka NaPak Ko Jawab and MSG The Warrior Lion Heart .
Baba was the lead choreographer, singer, director and producer in these movies. The Baba has also released several albums glorifying himself which have been welcomed by his followers.
Singh is a man of style and owns a Range Rover SUV and usually has a convoy of 100 vehicles following him. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is one of the 36 people in India who get a VVIP Status and a Z level security cover.
The Baba ranked 96th in the Indian Express list of 100 most powerful Indians in 2015. In a report then, the newspaper said, “Besides having five crore devotees, he has sold over 10 million CDs of his album Love Charger and has turned filmmaker-actor. His debut film, MSG, released amidst much hype. Politicians from Punjab and Haryana seek his blessings before polls.
He got BJP to sign an affidavit supporting his social work before he lent them support in the Haryana polls. He is shooting the MSG sequel and has said he would adopt acid attack victims to help them.”

In 2007, Ram Rahim mocked the 10th guru of Sikhs – Guru Gobind Singh by dressing up like him. This led to violent clashes between Sikhs and Dera Sacha Sauda followers. Several districts of Punjab were placed under curfew for around 10 days.
The case for which the Baba is in news today is related to the sexual exploitation of two female followers of Dera Sacha Sauda. In 2002, these followers sent an anonymous letter to the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, accusing the dera chief of sexual abuse.
Consequently, the Punjab and Haryana High Court ordered a CBI probe into the incident on September 2002.

Letter written by the raped gril to Prime Minister Vajpayee in 2002 ~ ”I have considerable influence with governments. Chief ministers of Punjab and Haryana and Central Ministers come to pay obeisance to me.”

The following letter from a young victim of the Gurmit Ram Rahim to the Prime Minister of India was published in ‘Desh Sewak’ on 09-25-2002. It details the misery these helpless young women live in throughout these deras.

Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee, Prime Minister, New Delhi,

I am a girl hailing from Punjab State. I have been serving as a ‘Sadhwi’ in ‘Dera Sacha Sauda’, Sirsa (Haryana) for the last five years. Beside me, there are hundreds of others girl here, who serve for 18 hours daily.

But we are sexually exploited here. The ‘Dera Maharaj’ Gurmit Singh rapes the girls in the ‘dera’. I am a graduate. My family has blind faith in the ‘Maharaj’ (Gurmit Singh). It was at my family’s bidding that I became a ‘Sadhwi’. Two years after I became a ‘Sadhwi’, a special woman-disciple of Maharaj Gurmit Singh came to me one night at 10′ o’ clock and said that the Maharaj had summoned me to his room. I felt elated that Maharaj himself sent for me. I was going to him for the first time. After climbing the stairs, when I went into his room, I saw that he was holding a remote in his hand and was watching a blue film on the TV. Beside his pillow on the bed, lay a revolver. Seeing all this, I was frightened and became nervous. I had never imagined that Maharaj was a man of this type. Maharaj switched off the TV and seated me beside him. He offered me water and said that he had called me because he considered me very close to him. This was my first experience.

Maharaj took me in his embrace and said that he loved me from the core of his heart. He also said that he wanted to make love with me. He told me that at the time of becoming his disciple, I had dedicated my wealth, body and soul to him and he had accepted my offering. When I objected he said, “There is no doubt that I am God.” When I asked if God also indulges in such acts, he shot back:

1. Sri Krishna too was God and he had 360 ‘gopis’ (milkmaids) with whom he enacted ‘Prem Lila’ (love drama). Even then people regarded him as God. So there is nothing to be surprised at it.

2. I can kill you with this revolver and bury you here.
The members of your family are my devoted followers and they have blind faith in me. You know it very well that members of your family cannot go against me.

3. I have considerable influence with governments also. Chief Ministers of Punjab and Haryana and central Ministers come to pay obeisance to me. Politicians take help from us. They cannot take any action against me. We will get the members of your family dismissed from govt. jobs and I will get them killed by my ‘Sewadars’ (servants). We will leave no evidence of their murder. You know that earlier also we got the ‘dera’ Manager Fakir Chand killed by goondas. His murder remains untraced till this day. The ‘dera’ has a daily income of one crore rupees with which we can buy leaders, police and the judges.

After this, the Maharaj raped me. The Maharaj has been doing this with me for the last three years. My turn comes after every 25-30 days. Now I have learnt that before me too, the Maharaj had been raping the girls he had summoned. Most of these women are now 35 to 40 years old and they are past the age of marriage. They have no other option but to remain in the ‘dera’.

Most of the girls are educated – B.A., M.A., B.Ed, etc. But they are living a life of hell in the ‘dera’, simply because the members of their families have blind faith in the Maharaj. We wear white clothes, tie a scarf on the head, cannot even look at men and as per Maharaj’s commands, and talk with men from a distance of 5-10 feet. To the people we look like ‘devis’ (goddesses), but we are living like harlots. This time I tried to tell my family that all was not well at the ‘dera’. But they rebuked me saying that there was no better place than the ‘dera’ for here they were in the company of God (Maharaj). They said that I had formed a bad notion about the ‘dera’ and that I should recite the name of ‘Satguru’. I am helpless here because I have to obey every command of the Maharaj. No girl is permitted to talk with another, according to the commands of the Maharaj.

Girls are not permitted to talk to their families even on the telephone. If any girl talks about the reality of the ‘dera’, she is punished according to Maharaj’s commands. Sometimes ago, a Bhatinda girl revealed the wrong doings of the Maharaj. At this, all the women disciples gave her a sound thrashing. Because of a fracture in the backbone, she is now bed-ridden. Her father gave up the service in the ‘dera’ and went home. For fear of the Maharaj and his own disgrace, he is not revealing anything.

Similarly, a Kurukshetra girl has also left the ‘dera’ and has gone home. When she narrated the events in the ‘dera’ to her family, her brother who worked in the ‘dera’ gave up his job. When a Sangrur girl left the ‘dera’, went home and narrated the wrong-doings in the ‘dera’ to the people, the dera’s armed Sewadars/ hooligans reached the girl’s house and threatened to kill her and warned her not to leak anything about the ‘dera’.

Similarly girls from Mansa, Ferozepur, Patiala and Ludhiana districts are afraid of revealing anything about the ‘dera’. Although they have left the ‘dera’, yet they do not say anything for fear of loosing their lives. Similarly, girls from Sirsa, Hissar, Fatehabad, Hanuman Garh and Meerutdisclose as to what happened to them in the ‘dera’.
If I reveal my name,I and my family will be killed. I want to reveal this truth for the benefit of the common man, because I cannot bear all this tension and harassment. My life is in danger. If a probe is conducted by the press or some govt. agency, 40 to 50 girls living in the ‘dera’ will come forward to reveal the truth. We can also be medically examined to find out whether we are still celibate disciples or not. If we are no longer virgins, the matter should be gone into to find out who has violated our chastity.

The truth will then come out that Maharaj Gurmit Ram Rahim Singh of ‘Sacha Sauda’ has ruined our lives.


The Barbaric Act Of Female Genital Mutilation Exists In Kerala, India’s Most Literate State

One might’ve thought Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is not prevalent in India anymore but as it turns out, that’s far from true.

Girls as young as 6-9 years of age are forced to go through the painful, life-threatening procedure. In India, only the Dawoodi Bohra community was believed to be practicing this ancient technique. But a recent investigation by Aarefa Johari and Aysha Mahmood from Sahiyo, a collective fighting against FGM, revealed that a community in Kerala has been following this practice as well.
Sahiyo found a medical clinic in Kozhikode (Calicut) where two doctors admitted that they perform the procedure of ‘sunnath’, or circumcision, on both boys and girls. The investigation was conducted when Sahiyo got a tip about the clinic.

The procedure is performed by an ‘ozathy,’ a traditional cutter without proper medical training or sanitization. According to the report, a small clinic in Kozhikode, run by a doctor known for performing male circumcisions, admitted to practicing ‘sunnath’ on girls as well.
During the investigation, a woman from Sahiyo posed as someone who was in need of ‘sunnath’. Upon reaching the clinic, she asked if they perform it. The lady doctor at the clinic admitted to the availability of such a procedure. She also added:
“The practice involves ‘cutting the foreskin of the clitoris’ to increase sexual pleasure, and that it is ‘good for married life.’ It is not compulsory, but if your mother-in-law has told you to do it, then it is compulsory for you, you have to get it done.”

When they spoke to the male doctor who performs ‘sunnath’ on young girls, he said:
“The practice is mentioned in four or five Hadiths, or Islamic texts containing the teachings of the Prophet. You should read up about it, this is also done in Saudi, Egypt and Africa.”
“But these days a lot of women prefer to get it done for themselves immediately after delivering their baby when they’re also getting other stitches to their vagina. That way they have to deal with two pains in one go,” he added.

The investigation brings to light the fact that an archaic tradition which was on the decline is now widely being practiced in India’s most literate state.
According to WHO, the partial or full cutting of the clitoris such as the practice of sunnath falls under Type 1 form of FGM, also known as clitoridectomy.
The community that practices the illegal procedure claims there are major health benefits, including increased sexual pleasure. But in reality, it interferes with the natural functioning of a woman’s body and puts her at risk of various infections throughout her life.

The practice is deep-rooted in religious beliefs and the five Hadiths that the male doctor mentioned during the investigation. Since the texts were written in ancient times, no pronouns were used. Therefore, it became applicable to both men and women and has been used to support FGM as well.
According to the hadith narrated by al-Bukhaari (5889) and Muslim (257) from Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet said:
“The fitrah is five things – or five things are part of the fitrah – circumcision, shaving the pubes, cutting the nails, plucking the armpit hairs, and trimming the moustache.”

No one knows how much of it is actually an ancient text supporting a ridiculous practice like this. However, many Islamic scholars and leaders have denied, and on multiple occasions, condemned it. But a lot of communities practice FGM regardless.

In a personal account on Sahiyo, a Bohri woman recounts how she was circumcised at the young age of 5. It’s not only barbaric but inhumane and a violation of basic human rights. There are women across the globe who’ve been through the same ordeal just because some religious text was twisted to suit the interests of a few men.
It’s a heinous crime against women, and it’s time we ended it.
