‘Maybe it is time to change my son’s name’: The new reality of being Muslim in India

Saira does not call her son by her name when they are out of the house. “I prefer to use J, it does not sound like a Muslim,” said Saira, 40, a former colleague from whom I learned the first name in his application and whose Muslim identity has never been before an argument. “I’m afraid what I say, but it’s the truth.”

J always asked his mother the difference between him and his friends, who always told him there were none. They were all Indians under different names, he said.

This explanation, Saira, obviously worried, told me that it is weakening at once of prejudices and violence against Muslims unusual.

“I never thought there would be a day when I live in fear in my country,” Saira said. His 80-year-old father, who lives in a mostly Hindu area, told him he had never imagined living in these times.

“And this from a man who has witnessed partition riots,” he said. “I tell my house never to reveal his identity when traveling alone on a train.

Yes, it has come to this. Just before I spoke with Saira, I heard the strange but disturbing story of Nazmul Hassan, an Aligarh power plant engineer arrested by the police on 2 July after being found at a train station in a burqa.

The police interrogated him closely to determine if it was related to terrorism, but the truth has fallen, they seem to have been bad for him.

“When Hassan was turned over to GRP, he was crying and shivering and repeated that he was a simple man who has never done anything wrong,” said then-Superintendent of Police Rajesh Pandey, Times of India .

Hassan was in a burka because he was recently threatened by another passenger who accidentally falls by train. The man insulted his Islamic faith, and – accompanied by others – said that Hassan would be driven Aligarh.

“I read about the killing of Junaid [a Muslim teenager stabbed to death by Hindus in Haryana last month] on a train … there are some days,” Hassan said. “I was afraid for my life after the threat.”

Fear of Hassan submerged facts: Muslim women, especially burkas and hijab often feel threatened, the feeling that has been known in recent years.

Last year, two women from the Muslim village Madhya Pradesh – not burkas – were beaten and slapped for the first time by vacheurs and later by a mob that had gathered, suspected of being beef.

It was found that meat to be a buffalo – called sabzi or vegetable, in local jargon, a euphemism that betrays fear of any kind of meat – but none of this would have been important.

Police, of course, women arrested because they were not allowed to sell meat under a national animal conservation law, but has not stopped those who beat them and abused it by saying “no one complained.”

For northern India, as many stories have revealed, Hindu groups mobilize through cities, running like angry bees to threaten or attack Muslims who believe they have acted or need to show them their place.

Sometimes other minorities like Dalits and Christians are also objective. Dals Gau Rakshak, welfare organizations, cows roam the roads, control vehicles – often with police support – that carry livestock.

We’re running out of water. Read these books whose stories flow around it

In his beloved poem, the Filipino poet Conchitina Cruz said: “Think of the rest of the water and rises in the streets, it is a shame that the water that floods the houses, dark and dirty and heavy and rat leaves and Plastic. The way the water should be ashamed to have done so. ”

In these books throughout the subcontinent, he speaks of water, protests, rejoices and weeps. In our times, these books, through poetry, graphic novels, nonfiction and fiction, explored a variety of topics – from the maritime history of India to the modernization of threats to small fishermen and Water in the cities with simple pleasures and disappearing from rain bodies and water.

Growing up on the banks of the Ganges River, Jha has always been attracted to water and marine life. Hour living in the district of Bihar Madhubani, Jha has dedicated to see women practice the traditional art of Madhubani, which has been made with sticks and brushes and pigments and natural dyes.

Using geometric patterns, aesthetically pleasing artistic form, Jha created the graphic novel, Waterlife. As a new father, he used blue, green and orange in his drawings of the underwater world to express a deeply felt happiness. Some of the illustrations in the book can be seen in the brain Harvests, where Maria Popova called one of the best books she has ever seen in her life.

When Sengupta moved from Mumbai to Bangalore, he would be driving around town, going round and round, as if he were looking for something. I realized recently when I returned to Bombay I was looking for water at all of these endless night drives.

His first collection of poems is obsessed with water – the sea and rain in his hometown. In the poem headline, she writes: “On the outside, relentless fall – can make people angry.” Some poems from the collection that won the young writer Muse India prices can be read here and here.

Subramanien follows the culture of fishing along the coast of India to reveal stories, folklore and traditions – as a remedy against asthma consisting in swallowing a live fish, the rivalry between the East and West Bengal River, whose Best fish Hilsa spicy Karimeen fish served with punch to encourage customers to drink more and more.

This history of cooking and local customs is accompanied by comments on overfishing by trawlers away from traditional small fishermen. Poems from nine poems about rivers in India have been collected in this anthology by the poet and critic K Satchidanandan.

Satire is a humorous criticism of the human tendency to take natural resources into account. Delhi class wars taking place in the background while continuing the search for Saraswati.


Map of South Kashmir: Tral is ground zero for the new militancy

This is the only headstone with English letters: “Shaheed Muhammad Burhan ud Din Wani.” Died at the age of 22, the tablet tells Bemdoora, kokernag July 8, 2016.

He was the son of Muzafar Wani. He had lived in Shareef Abad Tral. He is buried in the town of Tral, a few kilometers from his house. Tral is a green area of the Pulwama district in southern Kashmir, with orchards leading to wooded hills and glassy streams.

It is here that the earliest tales Hizbul commander Mujahideen of Burhan Wani emerged. The way he was off with his older brother, Khalid, one day the security forces stopped and were beaten.

How he had been promised to fight the Indian army and then went home at age 15. How, five years later, Khalid had started with biryani to meet his brother in the woods, only to be killed. The army said it was a field worker from a radical group.

Last year, as news of the meeting that killed Burhan has spread in the valley, a multitude of remote towns and villages rushed to Tral for his funeral. For the new militancy in Kashmir Tral is zero ground.

In the rain one afternoon in June, the city of Tral like any other South Kashmir. This is the month Ramzan kept fasting and daily rhythms are slower.

The old men kneel in the tents while the women are sailing in the inspection of the goods. The shops along the alleys of the market sell everything from crispy chicken to water pipes with burkas.

Tral is vigilant. Newcomers to the main bus stand are properly considered and there are few people on the market. But all the other buildings of the school of the daughter of the Government to the water tank, affirm that it is “the city of Burhanz”. Almost a year after the death of the Hizbul commander, the graffiti were erased more steps, but the letters are still discernible.

Few people in the market talk to strangers. But Bilal Ahmed, a gay and ugly man who owns a store selling carpet and cushions and sunglasses as a journalist, asks clients questions.

Burhan Wani is more than a name in this city, almost everyone has personal relationships with him or family. His father, Muzafar Wani, is very popular. “Burhan’s father was in the city, he was a teacher at the primary school tral,” said Ahmed.

In a house near the market, one of the classmates Burhan Wani remembers a ‘Sharif (decent) boy who had no inclination for activism.

“When we learned that we had taken up arms, we were surprised that it was not,” he said. “The day before, he was preparing for his exams, but he did not write them.”

On the day of the Burhan burial, the city welcomed the rest of the valley. “For all the people who passed, we fed ourselves – water, bananas, everything we had at home,” Ahmed said.

A businessman who had just obtained a batch of products has been fed back to visitors. Hundreds of thousands of people attended the Eidgah service that day, according to Ahmed. The road to Eidgah near the market to the main bus station was closed.

“The security forces were intelligent, they had no place in the market,” Ahmed said. “It’s always the norm. Every time something happens, they have troops deployed to the bus station and near the camp [at the point of entry into the city], but not entering the market or elsewhere.”


There’s no GST on books. And yet books will become more expensive

At first glance, the fact that there is no tax on goods and services has been imposed on books – there was no previous special – which should have been good news for publishers and readers.

The new tax system, which replaces the previous and multilayered version, does not provide GST in books of all kinds. However, there is a catch. Although books do not attract GST, many components of a book do.

Throughout the value chain, the role of copyright royalties printing, GST payments began on July 1, which means the cost of creating a book now higher.

Ananth Padmanabhan, CEO of HarperCollins India, said Scroll.in “GST has an impact on input costs.” And to keep the margins – which have already been under pressure – perhaps publishers have no choice but to raise prices.

With most of the individual titles – banning textbooks and mass-selling mass markets – already with sales down, higher prices are not welcome now.

What happens in a book? Intellectual property comes from the writer, like the manuscript. The physical components include paper, ink, glue, etc., necessary for the printing and binding of a book.

And the services are in the form of printing and delivery to the publisher’s store. Now with GST slapped each of these components, paper and consumables of the printer, for example, add this tax at your cost.

In other words, it will be the publisher who buys the products or services, who will pay for this additional expense.

The publishing industry uses the services of independent experts in many aspects of editing and production – text editing, proofreading, type designing, cover design, illustrations, etc. – each will have to pay 18% GST instead of 15% service fee.

As you pass that cost to the publisher, the expense will increase. Explanation Manas Saikia, co-founder, Talking Tiger Books, “There is a GST 18% in all service providers. If you are registered under the GST, you will be charged your bills.

If they are not registered, there will be a reverse tax expense for the paid publisher. The exact cost increase will vary and I would say that production, pre-press and royalty costs increase by 5% to 6% overall. ”

But why do publishers not receive the same benefit as other industries? As the oldest tax value added, GST also includes the notion of tax entry credits (CCI).

In other words, this means that the seller of the final product has to pay VAT at the current rate, but can claim credits in all GST already paid by its suppliers.

In this scenario, the publisher might have claimed the ITC in the GST paid to suppliers – if there had been a GST in the books that it sells. However, since there is no GST in the books, the question that such credits does not arise.

Thus, the publisher found their costs increase due to the GST paid by their suppliers, accounting for 12% of paper and printing. Says Thomas Abraham, CEO, Hachette India: “Printers have told us there was a 5% increase in the cost of materials due to the GST.”


Eye on polls in Gujarat, Karnataka, the BJP is all set to push backward classes Bill in Parliament

With crucial elections taking place in Gujarat and Karnataka, a proposed constitutional state promulgating the law to the National Commission of backwards classes is at the forefront of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party during the monsoon session of Parliament, which begins on July 17.

After several rounds of discussion, the selection committee introduced the report in Parliament during the monsoon session. It is expected that the bill to have a smooth transition, since all political parties agree on the content of the law.

The bill will give the powers of the commission offered to repair the complaints of members of the backwards classes in the same order as those enjoyed by the National Breed Commission.

The creation of a National Commission for Backwards classes, greater power of decision will undoubtedly be a great victory for Narendra Modi government and will be presented as such in the coming months.

Gujarat goes to the polls later this year. Elections in Karnataka are planned for 2018, but media reports said the state’s chief minister, Siddaramaiah, is in favour of progress in December.

However, the BJP does not expect approval of the Act to consolidate its support among the backwards classes. The party has already launched a national campaign to spread the fact that it is the government of Modi has ensured that backwards classes get their rights.

EU ministers and BJP leaders have travelled to different states to convey this message to the widest audience possible. At the same time, the party also takes every opportunity to clear Congress to take the bill in the Rajya Sabha and paint the main opposition party as “antitrust classes.”

A senior BJP official said: “Congress is going to pay a high political price to block the bill.” Therefore, regardless of the approval of the bill in the monsoon session, BJP strategists have assured that the party would win in one way or another.

BJP’s awareness of backwards classes has grown since it got its support in the polls at Lok Sabha in 2014. Modi’s projection as the back-class leader has come a long way than the way to win.

More recently, the BJP’s experience in Uttar Pradesh to accommodate non-Yadav members back classes in their party structures and give them a chunk of polling entries in the Assembly from February to March has paid rich political dividends. The party swept the election, winning 312 of 403 seats.

The BJP plans to extend this strategy across the country, as backwards classes constitute more than 50% of the population. The immediate goal of the party in Gujarat and Karnataka, but also the hope of making significant progress in the southern states, where the back classes play a crucial role in electoral politics.

Following its Uttar Pradesh strategy, the BJP has identified the leaders of the later classes locally in several states, while party chairman Amit Shah held a series of meetings with them in as many states as Gujarat, Telangana, Kerala and Goa itself.

“We have had a very good response in all these states,” said a BJP leader. The BJP hopes that its emphasis on backwards classes will help expand its presence in the south, where it is considered primarily a Brahmin feast confined in the “Hindi cow belt.”


‘Mrs C Remembers’ investigates the politics of Indian families, where loss of memory becomes a tool

The first novel by Himanjali Sankar “adult”, Ms C Memorial, is described as an “exploration advancing the limits of presentation, disease and disruption, and unfathomable power of the human spirit.”

This novel includes many aspects of contemporary urban life in India, but Sankar subtly, instead of drilling, shows of them is the inevitable failure of each family.

On a simple level, Mrs. C recalls speaking to Anita Chatterjee and her daughter Sohini, navigating life as part of the Kolkata elite.

Mrs. C., whose name almost always belongs with the prefix attached (unless simply as “Ma”) is subject to the many social relations that prevent it.

I say that the novel is subtle because it is only in retrospect that Mrs. C. descent to madness seems inevitable. This is not what he remembers, as the title suggests, ironically, but he forgets that tradition imposes Bengali restrictions.

And what is the exhausting efficiency. Mrs. C and Sohini take turns telling the story of their lives. As well draped sari – based Ms. C holds – appearances should be maintained, preserved social relations, diplomacy exercised.

All this under the watchful eye of the abusive mother of her husband, who seems to grow long after his death at the beginning of the book.

For Sohini, whose journey from early childhood to motherhood was not as simple as Mrs. C. reconcile her mother’s compulsive need to please everyone with her future, it becomes a shared battle over a period of several subplots and 14 , While in the middle ages.

Mrs. C remember is simply written, with a prose that sticks to the goal. Sankar raises difficult questions from people who lead everyday life: can you be your mother’s best friend, even if she has told you that they are less of your brother?

Can the love of her husband, even if he remains silent when his mother insults him? Do not say “yes” to any of these conditions would make a woman weak? What constitutes a strong woman?

The characters try to relate to the political movements of our time – the Godhra Nirbhaya riots to stop Kanhaiya Kumar.

Although widely discussed – in a Bengali manual, left liberal form – it never fully penetrates the family, nor in the life of each character, not even in the novel itself. Despite the need to be aware and have a political position, ultimately, the characters are concerned about their own lives.

Even Sanchita, Naxal’s comforting feminist sister C Sohini said, “I thought about how our lives would end if something happened to you. Nothing else seems important when this thought comes into your head.

The only thing you want your child to be alive and healthy. “And Mr. C’s growing apathy for Muslims becomes a factor that the family must negotiate not because of major ethical problems, but because partner Omar Sohini is Muslim.

Instead, Sankar investigate India’s family policy. It degrades, is a history of fulfillment, the roles that family relationships seem to produce firmly, housewives, obedient jealous stepmother, insensitive husband, apathetic son, rebellious daughter.

While Mrs. C has spent her life playing – and adapting – these functions, she can, as she grows old, her forgetfulness becomes the ideal tool for denial, allowing her to reject everything expected all these years.


Set in the glitter of Gurgaon, ‘The Windfall’ is the novel of India’s poor little rich crowd

The history of India Shining, its growing middle class, as it is growing in wealth and consumption without restrictions, had its recent literary interpretations.

The Ghachar Ghochar Vivek Shanbag, a novel in Kannada translated by Srinath Perur says unintended consequences in a family visited by unexpected wealth.

A man makes a fortune, after a surprising and innovative company idea, and moves his extended family in an exclusive area in Bangalore. The increase in wealth comes with a moral decline.

Bangalore, a city with its recent modernity, also saw its claim by traditionalists who successfully challenged the old name of the city, so it has become Bangalore.

Gurgaon continues in the same way, his story is, without a doubt, more chaotic and dirty. The 21st century India has seen a boom in the service industry, and flourished Gurgaon, also helped by its proximity to Delhi. And now Gurugram Gurgaon.

Gurgaon is in many ways like the Diksha Basu shows in his novel, Bonanza, the opposite of Delhi, a city that adjoin. In Basu’s book, Gurgaon is mentioned in several places as suburbs of Delhi.

It would be very bad. The seamless connectivity between the two does so well (some might confirm otherwise, though).

In the bonanza, what is clear is that Gurgaon is a separate and radically different place of Mayur Palli east of Delhi.

For two decades before Anil Jha moved his family into an ostentatious mansion whose owners have already moved to Kensington, Mayur Palli hosted Anil, his wife, Bindu and his son, Rupak.

JHAs like the Ghachar Ghochar family come to unexpected wealth after Anil Jha makes a successful multi-million dollar sale to the website he had developed: justcall.com.

We will never know the details, but almost in a Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) in the same way, it lives up to the wealth. M. Jha is a self-made man, having lost his father at an early age, and obviously worked hard to make sure of his family.

But this wealth is transformed, at the age of 52, in a much more drastic way, like his wife, who seems to be against the heart with her, and his son, Rupak, who in the Ithaca end make clear what to do with New wealth, even his parents or himself.

M. Jha has seen many struggles, including her widowed mother, living a life of stress, and seems to want a transformation inspired by the neighboring neighbor Gurgaon, Chopras.

There are two strands of the story: a novel in an incredibly clumsy middle-aged stage, introduced by Mrs. Jha, Upen between Chopra and Mrs. Jha’s best friend, Mayur Palli, Reema Ray.

And Rupak Jha difficulties in college, to insufficiency of college and love. In the end, only in the case of self-awareness that has been granted in this novel, he realizes that he also failed to be a son.

These are based on JHAs and the changes in their lives. His new fortunes were completely successful Mr. Jha. The desire to excel not only to erase the last miseries, but extends to the acquisitions that M. Jha desperately seeks:

Readers’ comments: ‘In India, being secular means criticising Hinduism’

I think the need to change the name is a bit exaggerated (“Maybe it’s time to change my child’s name”: the new reality of being a Muslim in India “) Most of these are feelings. Confidence issues manufacturers get.

In reality, these decisions are not courageous, but act offensively, because they know they are not alone. On the other hand, the observation of the decreasing Muslim families seems unnecessary. If this is the case for any other person, the number of children we choose to have. – Umar Farooq

This article has surprised me for one reason: the brilliant way we can handle the situation at home and paint a picture that is far from the truth. Before I am accused of being pro-BJP or Hindutva, I would say that I am neutral and not biased toward either party.

I agree that violence on behalf of the protection of the cow has created fear among many people who eat beef, including Hindus, but the projection of the plight of Muslims in the country in such a light is incorrect.

How can one deduce the fate of the Muslims crossed the country by a single incident? Do you follow social media? If so, do you have an idea of ​​how ordinary people, especially young people, feel about these incidents?

I can understand that if political parties fool the public by taking these incidents and painted a false image of using their polling station, but assumed a neutral place like yours is that you are aligned with a political party or have a program against Of a particular community. Ashwin Kumar

His article, although humanistic, did not address some important things. Hindu generations grew up with Muslims everywhere in India who supported Pakistan, whether it be cricket or the Kargil war.

When some young Muslims are lynched (which of course is an unforgivable crime), the liberal media are the national political discourse. But why the mother when they were brutally hundreds and thousands of Kandmiri Pandits, raped and expelled from their homes?

Where Hindus are a minority in Muslim-majority countries, homicides, rapes and murders are the norm, but English media in India never publish anything about it. – Shiv

The problem is much more important than what you say. The history of India is well documented and is in the origin and solutions to this “new reality” that writes.

This is not new, this was even when the invaders came to India and many millions were beheaded.

Gandhi offered love. That may be the solution. Minorities in the world must be sensitive to the needs of the majority. It is peace, brotherhood and march together under an umbrella that saves the day.

Moral of love is the way to go. Certainly, the early invaders of India do not have a mindset like Mahatma. God bless his soul. – MBV

This article is partial and represents India as the most intolerant nation. Ours is the only country where the majority of the population has to struggle with the government to preserve its identity and continue to live.

If Muslims in India feel they are discriminated against and denied basic rights, they may choose to live in Islamic countries. Do not make articles expressing these partisan views and society hurt. – R Sivasankaran
