Police Stories - India

The Hare runs like crazy through a forest and meets the Wolf. The Wolf asks: "What's the matter? Why such haste?" "The camels there are caught and shod!" The Wolf says: "You're not a camel!" "When you are caught and shod, go then and try to prove them afterwards that you're not a camel!"


The British, the Americans, and the Indian police are all trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The UN decides to give them a test. They release a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it.

The British police goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist.

The Americans go in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The rabbit had it coming.

The Indian police goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!"


Saare Jahan Se Accha

As we all know, India is the most secular country in the world. Whereas in other countries, people are persecuted for their religion, they will be protected in India? Didn't you know that?

Whereas in countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, where you can get killed for moving out of Islam or for simply practicing your religion, or places like Malaysia where you are accorded the state religion after death. There are also growing levels of religions intolerance in Russia
“The motives for spreading such hatred are clear – it is an attempt to discriminate and harass the Hindu community in Russia and stop them from building a temple,” explained Ramesh Kallidai, secretary general of the Hindu Forum of Britain. “It is unbelievable that a leader of such a powerful Church can make such disgraceful and dogmatic attempts to instigate tension between different religions. This is completely against all principles of multi-faith co-existence and cooperation that ancient and inclusive religious traditions like Hinduism stand for.”

Did you know that these things can never happen India? The only country in the world where a sikh can become a PM, a muslim and a dalit become Presidents, and a christian can become the leader of the ruling party? What more do they want? New Zealand and USA are aberrations - only once in a blue moon can an Indian become the Governor General of New Zealand or Bobby Jindal can become the Governor of a state!! Let's see if THAT happens again there or anywhere else!!

6 burnt alive - including 3 babies
The victims have been identified as Mahboob Khan (55), Safiya Khan (50), Rizwana Begum (22), Arsulam Khan (6), Numan Khan (3) and Sabat Khan (2).

Where else can we speak out against forced conversions while doing the same?
'Once a Hindu converts, his loyalties shift'
Firstly I would like to say that the VHP has always maintained that it was against conversions. People have been taken to prayer halls forcibly and made to pray four to five times a week [citation required], again forcibly why someone should force people to take up a certain religion? Why do a drama in the name of service to God and then end up converting people? If the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, the law also says forcible conversion is an offence

Once a Hindu converts, his loyalties too shift. Once a person is converted, his loyalty is to the Vatican. This means we lose one Hindu and gain an enemy in the bargain. Again let me make it clear, we have nothing against Christianity. We are just raising our voice against forcible conversion.

Orissa Christians made an offer they can’t refuse

Many of them want to return to their villages. They say they have been asked to embrace Hinduism, or else they would be either killed or treated as pariahs.

His hands trembled when he picked up the burnt Bible lying near the door. "This was the only religious book I had when I was a Christian. Now even that is no more. I may have turned a Hindu but my heart will never accept this religion," he said.

“I do not have anything else to fall back on. If converting to a different religion ensures safety for my family and me, then let is be so."

A Dalit was shot dead in Nalanda district of Bihar as he tried to make offerings to goddess Durga ahead of upper caste people.

Pregnant women bear the brunt of Orissa violence

That's just religion... don't get me started on language, region , or caste!! And there are more factors I don't even know that exist.
