CounterCurrents: Another Muslim Lynched In India





Dear Friend,

India is really becoming a Lynchistan. A man accused of carrying beef was allegedly beaten to death by a mob in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district on Thursday. This happened hours after Prime Minister Modi said that killing people in the name of cow protection is not acceptable.

In this time of gloom and terror Satya Sagar writes a fun piece on the Cows of Latin America. 

Let me remind you that our fund raising is going on and that too at a slow place. Please lend a helping hand to keep CC survive http://www.countercurrents.org/subscription/

Lynchistan: Another Muslim Lynched In Jharkhand


India is really becoming a Lynchistan. A man accused of carrying beef was allegedly beaten to death by a mob in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district on Thursday. This happened hours after Prime Minister Modi said that killing people in the name of cow protection is not acceptable.




The Lynch Republic


Hafiz Junaid, Pehlu Khan, Akhlaq, Yakub Sheikh, Najeeb Ahmed- these are not just some Muslim names; these are names of the victims of hate crimes, in the newest emerging- The Lynch Republic.




Cow, Caste, Che Guevara
by Satya Sagar 


Once on a trip to Ecuador, dreading the idea of dealing at length with the ‘cow question’ yet again, I cursorily told someone that Indians don’t eat beef because Indian cows run too fast for us to catch them! On another occasion, I remember telling an Argentinian woman that Indian cows lived under water and it was quite a task to fish them out!

Name is the problem
Those letters
carry more than just names
That qualifies us to be killed or not
It was in my name
and yours




Review: “The One Day Of The Year” – Australian Anzac Day Jingoism Hides Genocidal War Crimes
by Dr Gideon Polya 


The One Day Of    The Year is an iconic play by Alan Seymour about Anzac Day, the Australian and New Zealand war dead remembrance day held on the anniversary of the unsuccessful invasion of Turkey at Gallipoli by the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) on 25 April 1915. Anti-war sentiment expressed on or about Anzac Day has elicited ferocious responses over the years ranging from death threats to blanket media censorship that hides Australia’s appalling history of  UK- and US-linked war crimes and genocides.




Charity CEO’s Get Rich by Taking From the Poor
by Sally Dugman 


Years ago, the founder of central Massachusetts’s food bank mentioned obscenely high salaries that directors of a major, well-known Massachusetts charity providing funds for hungry Americans received every year an amount purposefully made difficult for the public to access, since all the volunteers for this charity, which raises millions of dollars each year, would be greatly dismayed to learn that around a fourth of those revenues were enriching upper management.

One of the consequences of the new tax regime is hike in necessary aids to the disabled including Braille typewriter, wheel – chairs, etc ( Fighting an old battle: GST rates, Javed Abidi, the Hindu June 29) . The cost of these aids will become at least 5% expensive.




Adivasis Integral To Protecting The Forest
by Susan Haris 


The Forest Rights Act self-fashioned as ‘a weapon of democracy in the forests’ turns’ tribes (Adivasis) from encroaching offenders to right holders and view them as integral to the survival of the forest ecosystem. It also claims to correct historical injustice done unto them by letting them reclaim forest land if shown ‘acceptable evidence’. The recent NCTA decision to not grant any forest rights to tribals in critical tiger habitats suggests historical injustice need only be addressed, not redressed.




National Security Act Imposed In Naramada Valley
by National Alliance of People’s Movements 


In order to curb the emerging dissent, the government of Madhya Pradesh has enacted the Rajya Suraksha Kanun (RASUKA) (Gazette Notification 25 May) on the lines of National Security Act to declare any protest illegal which means complete suspension of human rights in a place which is hit by a man-made disaster (submergence due to the dam). These people have not received their due and are not ready to leave their lands, homes, cattle, community centers, their entire life is at stake.
