Godhra out of garba venues during the Navratri festival toeing the line of VHP leader Pravin Togadia and Madhya Pradesh BJP vice-president and MLA from Indore Usha Thakur who recently expressed similar views apparently to counter the bogey of ‘love jihad’ A newly floated body Hindu Asmita Hitrakshak Samiti has even created a team of “volunteers” who will ensure that no Muslim youth are allowed inside the festival venue claiming that the festival is a religious gathering The organisation which is yet to register itself enjoys support from the VHP senior VHP leader from Godhra Ashish Bhatt said The 9-day Navratri festival begins on September 25 “Muslims are always against anything related to India be it national anthem national flag and they largely keep themselves away from Hindu festivals then why should they be so keen on participating in garbas They do so to lure Hindu girls We are here to oppose such intrusions and stop them A team of volunteers will work in this direction and will patrol the venues of garba events” said Jaimin Shah a member of the organisation Bhatt said the concern raised by the organisation is genuine “Our wives daughters and sisters participate in garba as a religious event It’s not a social gathering So the presence of Muslims makes no sense Last year too we had asked around half a dozen Muslim youths to leave the venue as they might have created nuisance” he said Organisers of garba events in Godhra said select Muslims of the city are given invitation cards to attend the events but they have always been of the view that the event is a part of Hindu religious festival and hence Muslims should not be allowed here A Muslim councillor at Godhra municipality Akram Patel said the directive to not allow Muslims is baseless as it has been passed by a handful of people who are not elected representatives of the city “I have personally been getting invitation from the organisers every year and no untoward incident has ever taken place at

forests and natural terrain.“It will also include opportunities for pilgrims to discuss how to live sustainably as individuals and as communities and how to truly appreciate the mountainous landscape” As well as input and discussion pilgrims will also be invited to look inwards in reflective mode “A pilgrimage like this offers people both quality time with others and by themselves” says Niall “Walking and talking with the same people every day is a chance to hear how God has been working in each other’s lives and by the end of the week pilgrims will have a clearer sense of how God is present and acting in their own lives” Already the group of pilgrims are bonding as a community according to Brendan McManus The author of Redemption Road: Grieving along the Camino is no stranger to challenging pilgrimages and the spiritual fruits they can bring He is also keenly aware of the power of the weather and the terrain “The first day was one of two halves” he told IJN “It started off cloudy and misty and then opened out into a beautiful day as we looked down on Bray and the coast We stayed in Knockree hostel and it has got to be the Rolls Royce of hostels – stunning Thank God we got here safely with everyone in good form and full of gratitude for the small things” Of course journeys like this are not without their challenges On a physical level pilgrims have experienced the usual blisters tiredness nettle stings and minor injuries But Brendan says there’s been no moaning or complaining and people have really got into the spirit of the pilgrimage by agreeing to switch off their mobiles during the day “We sometimes have Mass along the way and at night there’s group prayer singing and reflection time We pray the Examen prayer as a way of processing what’s going on internally for people as they make this journey The sharing has been really deep” For the most part the group has been blessed with sunny weather and only intermittent rain and some gusty winds A high point according to Brendan was the DjouceMountain and Lough Tay trail: “We were so high up it was like a sky road walk It was such a beautiful vista looking down on the lake and Powerscourt Waterfall is a sight to behold That was one of the really powerful parts of the pilgrimage so far” As the group reached Glendalough they rested their feet for the day and participated in another way Brendan said: “We got a tourfrom Fr Michael Rogers on the meaning of the monastic city and the environment Then we had a short reconciliation service to leave aside burdens When we make our way back to Dublin it will be chance to see familiar surroundings with new eyes” After the pilgrimage the group will meet at St Francis Xavier’s Gardiner Street Dublin where the parish will welcome them with a BBQ The returning pilgrims may help animate the Saturday evening mass hopefully having had what Thoreau describes as ‘a journey that has shaped them’ The week will finish with a time of music and Eucharistic adoration and according to Niall Leahy “With grateful hearts we will give thanks for the wonders that God will have done during the week”Written by Express News Service | Mumbai | Updated: April 14

1993 Surat blasts case 12 acquitted (Source: Express archives) Top News In a recent decision discharging eight men accused of charges under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act the special court (MCOCA) held that this Act’s provisions cannot be applied in a case where the chargesheet has been filed under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and directed that it be sent to a court with this jurisdiction It was the second time in six months that the special court had taken this view with the Bombay High Court having remitted the case back to it after the first time The special court however stayed the operation of the August 2 order for four weeks to allow the government to appeal in the high court because the order has “wider ramifications” and “would affect other cases” So what are those ramifications and other cases On July 18 the Supreme Court acquitted 12 men convicted of the 1993 Surat blasts They had been arrested under TADA since lapsed under which their confessions made in custody was admissible as evidence The court held TADA provisions were not applicable in this case; as such the convictions could not be sustained in the absence of evidence independent of the confessions under custody Two months earlier the Supreme Court had acquitted six men — three of them on death row since 2006 and one serving a life sentence — of the 2002 Akshardham attack and indicted the Gujarat police for picking up “innocent people” and “imposing grievous charges against them” and not the “real culprits” The police had booked them under POTA since repealed and produced hardly any evidence other than the confessions in custody which the accused said were extracted under torture As under TADA and POTA a confession extracted during police custody is admissible as evidence under MCOCA too but not under UAPA the main law the police use in terror cases With the other two Acts no longer enforceable the police have only the MCOCA provisions to fall back on The special court order therefore is set to impact several high-profile cases such as the 7/11 Mumbai train blasts which the Maharashtra police claim to have solved after invoking MCOCA Introduced by the state government in 1999 MCOCA is meant to fight organised crime The court order has drawn the line between organised crime and terror The first time A L Pansare special judge under MCOCA Greater Mumbai expressed this view was on February 11 this year when he noted that “MCOCA and UAPA stand on different footings” The case relates to serial blasts on Junglee Maharaj Road Pune on August 1 2012 The police then invoked provisions of IPC and UAPA With more than one chargesheet having already been filed police invoked MCOCA citing “prior approval” and “prior sanction” from the state government Unlike UAPA cases cannot be filed under MCOCA but the Maharashtra government can invoke its provisions if there is more than one chargesheet of “continuing unlawful activity” by a member of an organised crime syndicate In the February order special judge Pansare referred to a Supreme Court judgment delivered in 2008 and ruled “MCOCA does not deal with terrorist organisations & UAPA does not deal with organised gangs specifically targeted by the MCOCA… To my mind the ‘organised crime syndicate’ and ‘terrorist organisation’ cannot run concurrently The syndicate/gang is indulged in organised crime mainly for pecuniary or other benefits whereas terrorist organisation is indulged in striking terror or to postulate threat to unity integrity security and sovereignty of India” Discharging the accused of charges under MCOCA judge Pansare said “The act alleged would not attract the provisions of MCOCA but would attract the provisions of UAPA and other provisions of IPC and other Acts It cannot be said that the serial bomb blasts that occurred at Junglee Maharaj Road would amount to an organised crime” The Maharashtra government appeal and on June 26 2014 the Bombay High Court directed that “the matter is remitted back to the trial court for a decision afresh in accordance with law” This was followed by the August 2 order For all the latest India News download
