The tragic incident of hunger deaths in Bazardiha is a sad reminder of the prevailing harsh economic realities of a region and therefore the case of Abdul Khaliq’s family should not be taken as an isolated development, there are hundreds of families which are forced to live under similar poor economic conditions. This region urgently requires special development programmes targeting poverty to be launched jointly by the central and state government. Comprehensive efforts should be made to empower those reeling under abject poverty especially the weaving community in this region.
This would not only provide an opportunity for the weaving community to live with dignity but it would also honour in real sense their hard work and artistic abilities which created and kept alive the fame of Banarasi Sari all over the world.
Cashing in on prejudice: Police torture of Muslims in UP
Anti Torture Initiative, Anti Violence Initiative, Latest, Report
There is a social, political, and economic discrimination against Muslims daily. Police torture is a portrayal or manifestation of the social discrimination and marginalization of the Muslims community. Therefore ending police torture goes hand in hand in socially, economically and politically strengthening the Muslims. Today there are many organizations working toward helping the Muslims out of situations which breed violence and discrimination. Yet in India the Muslims are only one of the marginalized communities who are subdued and denied their human rights. Dalits, women, children and Tribals are other communities that face the same legal, political, and social discrimination. The discrimination in India is so difficult to reduce because it is truly ingrained in Indian society. The police torture stems from an idea of rightful inequality, penetrating Indian society; therefore change is problematic.Read more...
