NEW DELHI, INIDA: ‘Risk is my business, danger is my game. Don’t play with me’, proclaims the Orkut profile, which reportedly belongs to Tariq Saiyad, one of the three young men accused of gang-raping a schoolgirl in Surat on Friday.
The profile details, and the kind of ‘friends’ the accused have, give a clear picture of the young men, who hunted down young girls using social networking sites, apart from prowling the streets for victims.
But the Surat rape case, where the trio raped a school girl in a car, gave a twist to their tale. The aspiring models who enticed many a girl via the social networking platform are now getting brickbats upon brickbats.
“He should be castrated,” reads one hate message, while another netizen proclaims death sentence to the alleged rapists. “You should be stoned to death,” says the scrap.
“I wish that would have happened to one of your family girls. Then you would realise what rape is,” wrote Hetal, one of Tariq’s close friends on Orkut.
Another user said he has done this with many girls. “He has not did wid only 1 girl, he did wid many girls, gang rape, same type, in car only,” reads the scrap from King of king. The same user has put another scrap on Sahil’s Orkut page saying that the trio has raped seven girls.
The fathers of the accused duo serve in the police force and it was alleged that they were shielding their sons from the repercussions of their alleged misdeeds. But the e-courts have proclaimed death sentences to the accused.
“Court should surrender this kind of criminal to the public, they know very well what to do with this kind of criminal…… we should cut his pe*** in front of that girl in public place, so nobody will have guts to do this again…,” writes an Orkutian identified as King of the king.
Most of the comments, in Hindi, Gujarati and English use all the swearwords and more to give vent to their anger.
Saiyed Shahid also has got many online slaps. “First of all u can’t be Saiyed as Saiyed caste is one of Highest caste in Muslim. You are not even Human forget about being Muslim… you should be punished by ISLAMIC LAW , u don’t need fast track court stuff,” reads one scrap.
Sahil, a common friend of Shahid and Tariq, is flooded with dozens of messages from other Orkutians requesting him to stay away from the rapists, who also also allegedly filmed this gang rape act with mobile camera.
Whatever be the verdict of the court, netizens are clear in their verdict – a criminal deserves to be punished.

India denies visa to USCIRF, US religious freedom watchdogs

India denies visa to US religious freedom watchdogs

17 Jun 2009, 0037 hrs IST, Chidanand Rajghatta, TNN

WASHINGTON: The Manmohan Singh government has scuppered a proposed visit to India this week by the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a US Congress-mandated organization that monitors religious rights worldwide and gives independent policy recommendations to the US President and his administration.

A USCIRF team that was to leave for New Dehi on June 12 was not given visas in time, according to an associate at the commission, who said it was done with the obvious intent of blocking the trip. “They knew we
had tickets for June 12 and the visas are yet to be given, so the inference is obvious…they don’t want us to visit,” the associate told ToI.

The Indian Embassy in Washington, the issuing authority for the visa, referred all questions to New Delhi, while acknowledging that the USCIRF team had applied for visas and the applications had been forwarded to
New Delhi as is the standard practice for all such visits.

Sources in the government, without acknowledging that the visas were deliberately withheld, said it was not a proper time for such a visit. “We really don’t care about what they report,” an official who spoke on background said. “But a high profile visit seen as having government sanctions would have raised hackles in India.” The USCIRF has in its reports criticized violence against religious minorities in India.

The official said the visa denial was not linked to the criticism of the proposed visit by the Hindu pontiff, Shankaracharya Jayendra Sarawati, who earlier this week described the USCIRF as an “intrusive mechanism of a foreign government which is interfering with the internal affairs of India,” and said the team must not be allowed to enter the country.

The Obama administration too did not press for the visit, given that US Undersecretary of State William Burns was in New Delhi around the time of the proposed USCIRF visit, preparing ground for the visit to India by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sometime in July. Most “commissioners” and staff of the USCIRF are appointees of the previous Bush administration.

Although the United States acknowledges India’s rich religious and ethnic diversity and plurality, the USCIRF has in its annual reports criticized specific episodes involving violence against religious minority, like the ones in Gujarat and in Orissa.

“We understand India’s sensitivities about being criticized for religious discrimination given its democratic and secular credentials,” a commission associate said Wednesday. “But we are concerned that some of the
judicial processes with regards to the incidents in Gujarat and Orissa are not functioning properly and we only wanted to get them going.”

Indian hardliners, especially those on the extreme right, chafe at the idea that any US body would want to scrutinize the country’s religious freedom, given its secular credentials, when it dares not interfere in fundamentalist countries like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, where minority rights are non-existent. Senior RSS functionaries had specifically inquired repeatedly about the proposed USCIRF visit.

Describing the proposed USCIRF visit to India as “incomprehensible,” the US branch of the Vishwa Hindu Parishat said as the “largest functioning democracy in the world with an independent judiciary, a statutorily constituted Human rights Commission, an independent press and other supporting organizations would appear to be quite capable of taking care of the religious freedoms and human rights of its citizens.”

“India not only offers freedom of religion under its constitution, but does not discriminate based on religion. Similar freedoms are not available in its neighboring countries,” the VHP said on a statement.

But the Indian Left and the “secular” brigade in the US, including organizations representing minorities, argue that allowing such foreign bodies to visit India and examine its record and performance enhances the country’s reputation as an open, democratic nation that has nothing to hide or fear.
