editorial : Crimes Chief Justice of Supreme Court Of India , Union Home Secretary & Director-General of Police for Karnataka – RTI Act violations , constitutional rights & Human rights violations

 

The above stated public servants have failed to provide full information to us ie HRW as per RTI Act , thereby  covering up the criminals. The requested informations were no state secrets , no defense secrets but the accountability of above stated public offices. The information was requested  for public welfare , to secure equitable justice to public , to stop corrupt practices in public service , in exercise  of my FUNDAMENTAL DUTY as a citizen of India. However  the above stated public servants preferred to violate law themselves & to protect the criminals.

The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all  his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught  , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage.  even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.

 

 just think , if a judge himself that too apex court of the land itself commits crime – violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public  and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?

 

it gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in power , criminals in public service to commit more crimes. that is exactly what is happening in india. the educated public must raise to the occasion & peacefully , democratically  must oppose this criminalization of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF MAHATMA GANDHI’S DREAM. JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

Your’s sincerely,
NAGARAJ.M.R.

False Affidavits , Information Hiding – Crimes of supreme court of India & Public Servants

 

Many public servants are leading luxurious lifestyles , beyond the legal sources of their income. Many public servants are filing false affidavits about their annual income , wealth details to Election Commission of India / Vigilance Commission / other authorities , as the case may be. These authorities are not properly verifying these affidavits . many scams , scandals are coming to light day in & day out , politicians are accussing each other of involvement in scams. Whereas , the said authorities are keeping mum , as if those affidavits filed by tainted public servants are true.

 

The tainted public servants are not even providing full , right information to public as per RTI Act, lest the truth come out. Just imagine , even the supreme court of India violated RTI Act – failed to give information to our publication as per RTI Act , lest the truth – skeletons in judiciary comes out.

 

Some public servants , caught redhanded during luxurious spending , easily says that it is at their political paty’s expense or their well wisher’s expense. However no entries are found in the account books of said parties to that respect. The law forbids public servants from accepting gifts , hospitality , favours beyond the value of rupees one hundred  ( Rs. 100 ) , as it may be a form of bribe.

 

Hereby , HRW urges the honourable supreme court of India , to enforce RTI Act , annual filing of affidavits by public servants , fool-proof verification of those affidavits by public committees comprising ordinary citizens as mandatory encompassing all public offices. As a first step , it must be enforced to judges , police personnel & tax officials . then alone , many socio-economic problems , corruption in India can be solved.

AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER OF WEST BENGAL INDIA

 

Dear Chief Minister,

The recent political violence and armed attacks unfolding in Nandigram since 6 November 2007 has resulted in many deaths and displacement, and suppressed the basic human rights of farmers and others in the area – their right to freedom of association, right to differ politically, their right to peaceful dissent, and their right to be protected from harm by the state. As Chief Minister of the State it is your urgent responsibility to resolve the issue in democratic, just and peaceful manner.

We appeal:

Stop all acts of torture and violence upon the people of Nandigram being carried out by the police, other state officials and CPI (M) cadre.

Allow free and fair inquiries and investigations of the recent violence and those pending since 2006.

Allow the media to enter and report on Nandigram.

Prosecute all police personnel and other state officials responsible for the killings and torture at Nandigram and other acts of human rights violations.

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraj.M.R.

AN APPEAL TO  Chairman , Yahoo Inc , California USA

 

Dear Madam / Sir,

 

I am writing to you to express my deep concern over recent allegations that your company has assisted authorities in China in events which led to the imprisonment of Shi Tao, a Chinese journalist. On April 27, 2005, Shi Tao received a ten-year prison term for sending information about a Communist Party decision through his Yahoo email account to a website based in the United States. Amnesty International considers him a Prisoner of Conscience, as he was imprisoned for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression and opinion.

 

I am alarmed that in the pursuit of new and lucrative markets, your company is contributing to human rights violations. Yahoo should urgently give consideration to the human rights implications of its business operations. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights calls upon every organ of society, which includes companies, to respect human rights.

 

Yahoo’s conduct in Shi Tao’s case has exposed your company to the risk of being complicit in human rights violations.

 

You have publicly described your commitment  to develop a global code of conduct for operating in repressive countries around the world, including China. But since that time you have signed yet another pledge to voluntarily censor in China and you reportedly misled Congress about how much you knew about Shi Tao. Yahoo must take concrete steps  to ensure that the company ends its collusion with repressive regimes like the Chinese Government to restrict access to information, and never again assists in the imprisonment of a peaceful internet dissident.

 

I therefore call upon Yahoo to:

 

* Use its influence to secure Shi Tao’s release.

* Exhaust all judicial remedies and appeals in China and internationally before complying with State directives where these have human rights implications.

* Develop an explicit human rights policy, that states the company support for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and complies with the principles articulated in the UN Norms for Business, and ensure that all parent companies, subsidiaries and partners do the same. In this light, make clear to the Chinese authorities, as well as to the global community, that Yahoo is not willing to assist governments in implementing their systems of internet censorship, nor providing information directed at restricting freedom of expression.

 

Thank you for your consideration of these concerns.

 

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraj.M.R.

AN APPEAL TO CHAIRMAN  Microsoft Corporation , Redmond , USA

 

Dear sir,

 

I am alarmed that in the pursuit of new and lucrative markets, your company is contributing to human rights violations, in particular abuses to freedom of expression and information. This issue is especially evident in China, where websites and web pages dealing with human rights, including many of those of Amnesty International and other human rights organizations, are inaccessible to internet users.

 

I was extremely disturbed by reports that Microsoft cooperated with Chinese authorities to shut down the blog of Zhao Jing, a Beijing-based researcher for the New York Times. I am also concerned that MSN China filters the results of searches for politically sensitive terms and that MSN Spaces prevents users from using certain terms in their blogs.

 

Although I acknowledge the new policy recently adopted by Microsoft purportedly to address some of these issues, I remain deeply distressed by your company’s evident willingness to support censorship.

 

The fact that the company acts in compliance with restrictive domestic law does not exempt it from its international human rights responsibilities if complying with such requests contributes to human rights violations.

 

Internet companies have an invaluable role to play in the realization of freedom of expression and information – it shocks me that Microsoft would compromise this goal in pursuit of profit. Therefore I urge Microsoft to:

 

 

* Make publicly available all agreements between the company and the Chinese government with implications for censorship of information.

 

* Put pressure on the Chinese government to remove blockages of terms included in MSN spaces and ensure the Chinese public have uninhibited access to the full range of information available on the Web in line with international standards on freedom of information and freedom of expression.

 

* Develop an explicit human rights policy that states the company’s support for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and complies with the principles articulated in the UN Norms for Business. In this light, make clear to the Chinese authorities, as well as to the global community, that Microsoft is not willing to assist governments in implementing their systems of internet censorship, nor providing information directed at restricting freedom of expression.

 

Thank you for your consideration of these demands.

 

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraj.M.R.

AN APPEAL TO CHAIRMAN Google Inc Mountain View USA

 

Dear sir ,

 

I am alarmed that in the pursuit of new and lucrative markets, your company is contributing to abuses of freedom of expression and information. This issue is especially evident in China, where Google has agreed to restrict search results for topics including “human rights”, “political reform”, “Tiananmen Square” and “Falun Gong”, thus denying users of google.cn the ability to access the full range of information available internationally on human rights topics.

 

Though I acknowledge the policies recently adopted by Google to address some of these issues, including efforts to inform users that a search has been censored, I am still disturbed that the company continues to restrict search results in its local search engine. I urge Google to take further steps in this matter, including making public a full list of censored words and phrases. The fact that the company acts in compliance with restrictive domestic law does not exempt it from its international human rights responsibilities if complying with such requests contributes to human rights violations.

 

Internet companies have an invaluable role to play in the realization of freedom of expression and information – it shocks me that Google would compromise this goal in pursuit of profit. Therefore I urge Google to:

 

* Be transparent about the filtering process used by the company in China and around the world, and make public what words and phrases are filtered and how these words are selected.

 

* Put pressure on the Chinese government to remove blockages, stop the filtering of key words on the Chinese internet, including words such as democracy, human rights, freedom, and Falun Gong, and ensure the Chinese public have uninhibited access to the full range of information available on the web in line with international standards on freedom of expression and freedom of information.

 

* Develop an explicit human rights policy that states the company’s support for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and complies with the principles articulated in the UN Norms for Business. In this light, make clear to the Chinese authorities, as well as to the global community, that Google is not willing to assist governments in implementing their systems of internet censorship, nor providing information directed at restricting freedom of expression. 

 

Thank you for your consideration of these demands.

 

Your’s sincerely,

Nagaraj.M.R.
