#ReclaimTemples #Autonomous2HinduTemples
#HRCE law section10
Only practicing #HINDUS must be employed in temples under it.
At the time of joining, all the HRCE employees including the commissioner, must sign an undertaking professing faith in Hinduisim
Is this being followed ?
As expected & most unfortunately ,the answer is a BIG NO! 😠
This #RTI reveals that #HRCE doesn't have any records of anyone joining the dept taking the stipulated undertaking!
Violation of law
Also gives raise to the doubt how many nonHindus used this laxity & entered temple.
Secular constitution of India guarantees the right to citizens to govern their own religious institutions
Churches governed by Christians
Dargahs governed by Muslims
But Only Hindu Temples have been penetrated by non hindus.
Shame on the secularism of this country.
Must end!

As Parliament amends #POCSO to include the death penalty, a closer look shows that political posturing contrasts with reality. Politicians are often the ones protecting the rapist-killer. Pinki Virani takes a look at this scenario. #FPthreads 1/18
In November 2013, after more than seven months of work, Pinki Virani filed a PIL regarding cases which involved crimes upon children by adults. There were four identified cases – four children in different states murdered by five rapists. 2/18
All cases had been awarded the #DeathPenalty by all three tiers of courts and yet, all of the convicted rapists were still very much alive, living on tax-payers' money in jails, till 2013; the SC had awarded their death sentences in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2008. 3/18

news.vice.com/en_us/article/… Everyone left off the #NRC will face Assam's foreigners tribunals. How do they work?
My investigation with @VICE and @typeinvestigate done over six months, analysing 500+ tribunal judgements received through #RTI. Do read.
@VICE @typeinvestigate 78% of the orders were issued without the accused present, known as an ex-parte judgement. In one tribunal, this was the case in every single judgment.
@VICE @typeinvestigate In 515 judgments analysed, about 82% of people on trial were declared foreigners. The numbers varied widely; one foreigners tribunal declared all its cases Indian, while another declared every person tried a foreigner.

@YashwantSinha, A Shourie & @pbhushan1 are seeking a review of the #SupremeCourt's #Rafale judgment on 4 main grounds:

1) Judgment did not deal with the main prayer of one of the petitioners (P Bhushan): filing of an #FIR & a #CBI led investigation
...
2/n
...
2) Judgment relied on a large number of major factual errors
3) Critical material evidence was suppressed from the Court

Today in Delhi High Court hearing on disclosure of DU results of 1978 (year PM Modi claims to have graduated) ASG Tushar Mehta opposed our intervention. Made no legal arguments only personal attacks- called us "busy bodies", "meddlesome interlopers seeking cheap publicity" 1/n
Key grounds of intervention- 1.Results are not personal info. DU displays results of 100s of exams online as do universities globally 2.Exemptions cited by DU not applicable for info relating to matters older than 20 yrs (S. 8(3) of RTI). ASG didn't counter these arguments 2/n
Govt adopting delay tactics & opposing disclosure of results of 1978 unnecessarily raises suspicion & doubt about veracity of PM's election affidavit. If results of exams held recently can be disclosed without undermining privacy, surely results of 1978 can't be secret! 3/n #RTI

Hilarious things happening on #aadhar under Govt pressure! @RBI opens office on a holiday to clarify its #RTI answers to @MoneylifeIndia
Its favourite paper @EconomicTimes added masala to the non-clarification! m.rbi.org.in//Scripts/BS_Pr…
Then @indiatvnews decides to cover the issue and asked me for a sound bite. Since I was clueless about clarification I spoke about our RTI
