Hindus sue restaurant for serving them meat; want joint to pick up tab to India for cleansing ritual – BY Philip Caulfield – DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER – Tuesday, July 19th 2011, 3:45 PM

A group of vegetarian Hindu diners sued the Moghul Express in Edison, N.J., for serving them meat-filled pastries. The group wants the restaurant to pay for their trip to India for a cleansing ritual. The group of 16 Hindus unknowingly noshed (dined rather??? wtf using this word, you’d think they were eating through their noses . . . . the wonders of NLPs on the back of a strong vocabulary eh? A no-no if anything to be PC  . . ) on meat-filled samosas, a no-no in their religion.

A New Jersey restaurant that served meat to a group of vegetarian Hindus may have to pick up the tab for their trip to India for a cleansing ritual, a court panel ruled.

The three-judge panel reinstated a lawsuit filed against Moghul Express, an Indian restaurant in Edison that admitted serving meat-filled pastries to 16 Hindus, the New Jersey Star-Ledger reported.

The group’s religion bars them from eating meat, and the diners said the mix-up tainted them spiritually. To save their souls, the group claims, they must wash themselves in India’s Ganges River, more than 8,000 miles away. And they want the restaurant to foot the bill.

“If you follow the scriptures, it’s definitely a huge cost,” Mehul Thakkar, a spokesman for the Yogi Divine Society, a Hindu nonprofit, told the Star-Leger.

The purification ceremony can last upwards of 30 days, putting the cost somewhere in the thousands, Thakkar said. The group sued after unknowingly noshing on meat-filled samosas during an Indian Day celebration in August 2009. Moghul Express had assured them the flaky treats (ooo now they’re pets eating some cheaply manufactured crud?) were vegetarian, but after the group tasted them and complained, the kitchen admitted it mixed up their order.

A Superior Court threw the case out last year, but the diners appealed and won on Monday. Pradip Kothari, president of the Indo-American Cultural Society in Edison, called the lawsuit “a hypocrisy of the law.” “They can go to a temple here and ask God for forgiveness. God is not going to punish you for doing something unknowingly,” he told the Star-Ledger.

Would be a good chance for the State to build bridges to India if the restaurant does not. The artful Hindus have extended their hand, typical though are the blunt and obtuse responses of the whites. The national service though costing thousands COULD have been invaluable, but true to selfish form, idiotic society, they failed to respond to a

diplomatic gift horse. And they ARE but asking for reparations based on charges rather than litiguous suits in the number of billions and such. USA fails! Some ‘agent’ from the WH could have hastened to print a stack of bills and asked the restaurant to ‘make India happy’ but nothing.

Conscience Indians Catch The Bull By The Horns Posted on 15. Jul, 2011 by Hamid Waheed in India

They have taken on human rights and Terror issues with a zeal and determination

“Inequality is the soul of Hinduism” Ambedkar – by Hamid Waheed

The state atrocities against poor, lower class and non Hindu Indians continue under silent Indian media but conscience Indian writers, former officials along with human rights organizations keep raising their voices whenever they can. In an article by Arundhati Roy titled “Walking with the Comrades”, published in month of March, she exposes the real face of world‘s largest democracy. How thousands of innocent citizens are being ruthlessly killed in the name of so called development.

Maoist, the forgotten people of India are killed and humiliated under ‘Operation Green Hunt’, using sophisticated weapons and equipment (i.e laser range finder, thermal imaging equipment and unmanned drones) bought from Israel to kill its own poor Gondis (tribesmen). Arundhati explained during her journey to the land of Gondis, how government owned training camps are established to turn street dogs into monster to hunt poor Gondis. India-Israel nexus and Israel’s rogue role in world politics is no more a hidden factor, expulsion of her diplomat by UK on involvement in Hamas leaders murder is a recent example.

Around 60,000 peoples are forced to leave their homes and live in Xray camps. Girls and children living in hostels are not allowed to leave because state uses them as human shields. Many industrial tycoons like Tata and Essar are financing the government operation in order to attain mining contracts. Arundhati questions “When a country that calls itself a democracy openly declares war within its borders, what does that war look like? More so when they are not terrorists”. Under article 2 of resolution 260 (III) ‘A’ the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Indian state actions fulfill all qualifications to be termed as state sponsored genocide.

The political mindset can be judged from a recent statement of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh when he declared its own citizens as a threat to national security when he was talking about Maoist movement.

Another mind provoking book is “Who Killed Karkare-The Real Face of Terrorism in India”,written by Former Maharashtra Inspector General of Police S M Mushrif. According to S M Mushrif he analysed the Mumbai attacks thoroughly. All the reports that were available to him suggest that the Indian Intelligence Bureau (IB) was aware of the attack at least five days in advance. They knew the entire operation; the route these terrorists were taking. However, it is strange that they did not pass on this information to the Mumbai police.This lack of intelligence led to the Mumbai attacks and some right-wing groups upset with the investigation into the Malegaon incident taking advantage of the situation killed Karkare.

S M Mushrif also reveals that the cases against the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) were faked. All the boys who were arrested were found to be innocent during the course of the investigation and later court dismissed the cases against the boys. Gujrat riots still remain in memories of Indian Muslims. Famous writer Smita Narula describes Gujrat riots as Genocide of Muslims and states. According to her “What happened in Gujrat was not a spontaneous uprising, it was a carefully orchestrated attack against Muslims”. Caste system and inequality is root cause of injustice in Indian society. Prominent Indian Hindu writer Ambedkar said that “Inequality is the soul of Hinduism”. He characterized the oppressive caste system as the tyranny of Hinduism. After spending a lifetime in a crusade against the oppressive Hinduism, Ambedkar finally renounced Hinduism and converted to Buddism and exhorted his followers to do the same. Not to forget Kashmir, where security forces abuses are so common and every day we observer protest over such cases. Meenakshi Ganguly, senior South Asia researcher at Human Rights Watch said that “It is extremely rare for the security forces in Kashmir to turn over one of their own to the civilian justice system,”.

Today Sikhs, Christian, Muslims and Dalits (the untouchable humans) are victim of state policies and inequality in India. Human rights organizations are registering number of abuse cases against minorities. Although the Indian State and its proponents seek to blame past governments for human rights abuses and assert that India is no longer violating human rights but independent research by numerous organizations, indicates otherwise. International human rights organizations, such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, continue to condemn India for its failure in preventing and in many cases advocating, the violation of human rights against its minority and underprivileged communities, including women. Surprisingly it is seldom that such activities get focus in Indian media. The Indian media usually remains Pakistan centric as a proactive approach to hide their own short falls. However, for the first time the intelligencia has raised questions on the role of CIA agents like David Headley Coleman & the fact that India has more than 3500 Americans unaccounted for in their country as per the records of the Home Ministry . After july 2011 attack in Mumbai, an understanding is developing where other elements are seen taking advantage of the old Indo – Pak perceptions . Use of locals by exploiting their weaknesses is a common lead behind most of the terror incidents in both countries and chances of common handler can not be ruled out.

There may be portions unfair about Hinduism, but Hinduism is India’s only cultural-religious heritage. If every Indian converted to something else, true Indian faith and culture would die off. The abuses you mention are not from Hindus but people who claim to be Hindus and follow Hindu forms. Hinduism would never allow such abuses. Meanwhile try to rake it easier on your own ethnotype and immediate neighbours. These bombings were particularly timely if you ask, the intention is to fear monger and create distrust between Central Asian/South Asian nations so that the globalists can try to divide and conquer all of you. Remember to the whites you are always inferior, but useful to control. As cousins though adversorial at times, there is at least a measure of equality which is the only basis friendship can be built on. With enough chaos, the so-called Security council will have an excuse to re-colonize the ENTIRE region. Whatever argument between Muslim and Hindu at that point will be worthless.

Ban likely on improperly dressed tourists in all Goa temples – via Commons – July 12, 2011

The ban on visitors wearing indecent clothes, is likely to be extended to more temples in Goa, with a right wing organisation deciding to lend its support to the campaign on the issue.

Gomant Mandir and Dharmik Sanstha Mahasangh (GMDSM), a federation of various temple committees in Goa, has said that it will convince the temple managements to ensure that the visitors are properly dressed. Goa has more than 1,000 temples across the state.

GMDSM coordinator Jayesh Thali said that the idea to convince the rest of the temple managements came up only after two temples in the state took up a dress-code initiative.

The organisation has said that the improperly dressed or short-dressed visitors should be barred from entering the temples.

Two of Goa’s leading temples have already asked the visitors, especially foreigners, to either dress properly or not to enter the temple premises. Mahalsa Narayani Temple at Mardol, 20 kms away from here, has already banned the entry of foreigners.

Thali told PTI that the steps taken by both the temples are worth appreciating. “The decision taken by the management of the temple is an ideal one and worth emulating by all temples,” he said.

The management of the temples that imposed a ban had said that indecent behaviour by the visitors was hurting the religious sentiments. They had said that since the visitors, especially foreigners, were not properly informed about the religious practices here, they indulge in indecent behaviour.

This will help remind that ‘Sunday Best’ formal wear should have fair parallels based on RELIGIOUS Day formal wear (local dressing NOT Western suits). Try changing the disgracefully colonized legal system’s trappings as well.

Let it be all Indian, though ‘white’ lawyers in India should bethe only ones wearing wigs and robes. As for the major races listed here, they should wear their OWN race’s formal wear as in the general example below :

The Dhoti Kurta and Turban for Indians, to replace the Robe and Wig for HINDU COURT.

The Kain Songket and Tengkolok for Malays, to replace the Robe and Wig for CALIPH’s COURT.

The Hanfu and Guan Hat for Chinese, to replace the Robe and Wig for CONFUCIAN COURT.

A modified/’combinationally’ representative form of the Cawat and Feather Headress for Orang Asli, to replace the Colonial Robe and Wig for Orang Asli/Native Court.

Why must law be English? The architecture of Legal Institutions English? Why can’t we have our own ‘Inner Temples’ or ‘Inns of Law’ in our host countries? Why not a Maharaja’s Counsel (there are a handful of Maharajas still btw)? Why not a Sultan’s Counsel? An Emperor’s Counsel?

Why the acceptance of colonialism in dress? England hardly deserves to be the heart of the legal fraternity.

Extreme High Costs (Bloodsucking Tollgate Atttitude) On Property Tranfer – original article by @AgreeToDisagree – 1st February 2012

In 1% tricks and traps, Bad By-Laws, checks and balances, Fair Chrges, Invasive Laws, Justice, Law, preventing vested interest, Wealth distribution on February 1, 2012 at 10:56 am

Some of us have not had the pleasure of owning many properties in this lifetime to be familiar in transferring the same, so please bear with any inaccuracies that may show up in this article intended for exposition of greed of the current ‘toll keeper mentality’ system. Because some of us have the finances to ignore these fees which are excessive to others, or take for granted that this is written in stone (most assuredly the MPs have the power to change this, or Bar Council the power to address this but both have not spoken, thus rendering them unvotable or not carrying out their responsibilities to better the system of governance leaving loopholes in place to parasities off), does ot mean everything is fine or that the system is fair, this is a very serious issue that must be addressed.

The current property sale or transfer process follows :

- a lawyer charges fees that vary (often equal to a month or few of salary) for representing transferring party
– transfer form is obtained and signed
– stamp duty department contacted by lawyer about sale
– stamp duty department will give notice how much the govt. to determine stamp duty based on excessive Stamp Duty Act figures.
– buyer or transferring parties will pay stamp duty which is 1% or more (this is excessive, in fact no Stamp fees should be levied at all – if someone wants to give you something, who’s business is it to say you have to pay the government first? MPs who neglect such things and do no amend such things, do not deserve your vote.)
– if deceased and within family, the stamp duty is waived
– if alive they have to pay stamp fee (why the difference? can’t family members transfer properties without stamp fees before they die and not be charged? why after dead then waived? this speaks of the viciousness of the system)
– if a family member the stamp duty is waived 50%

Effectively the transfer will be subject to interference by the government valuation (which could be colluded with at higher rates for pro-government of the day legal firms, or colluded against for anti-government of the day legal firms). This should be altered by the MPs of the day.

The Stamp Duty Act in all cases gives too much power to the government Land Office to decide what stamp duty is to be paid to the lawyer by the arbitrary power to decide the value of the property. The MPs and candidates for MPs should on top of the removal of Eminent Domain powers removal, and granting of Allodial titles (for freehold owners) requirement, be ready to promise to AMEND the Stamp Duty Act which is both invasive, wastes the time of all parties and adds unnecessary layers of administration.

WHATS WITH THE EXTREME COSTS FOR TRANSFER? It’s your property not the government’s property, and transfer should not cost anything (to witness and smudge some ink, they want us to pay nearly a month’s salary or even a year or few in high value properties?!? An officer can be assigned at the Land Office to sign themselves as a witness for a moment – yeah right I saw the Stamp being placed on the triplicate government issued titles in the presence of the owner and lawyer – this can be further proven with live videos made of EVERY signing) be so cumbersome or invasive.

This toll keeper mentality fo the government and law has to go. If anyone gave another person any property not sold it, for any reason, from a few properties, why should ANYONE much less government be allowed to demand and extract a pound of flesh or fees for a private property transfer in which no money passes between the giver and receiver? Who knows the commission that property agents charge could be an industry of making people move out of neighbourhoods to cause them to spend money  on the system as well. With this sort of stamp fees in place, the legal profession could not be doing REAL work and rather parasiting off people’s property transfers. Ethics please! Both parties don’t exchange a cent but the lawyer and the government get 1% or more % costing 1000s or even 10s of 1000s?!? AMEND THE LAW!

Property Transfer should be done in the below fashion :

- transferring parties (or party and Will) with lawyer shows up at Land Office as proof
– officer in charge of land transfers witnesses the transfer at Land Office (new owner, lawyer present), token stamp fee for RM1 ONLY (no valuation based fees or involvement of valuer state or private)
– 3 parties stamp or sign or mark in triplicate 3 single titles
– one copy kept by land office for proof, another by the owner, the 3rd copy kept by lawyer’s firm (in the event the lawyer’s firm goes bust, the lawyer has to pass all records to another legal firm of choice  and inform the current owner of any property being moved and land office that the record has been transferred to the new legal firm)

We are civilised now, what you earn can be used to buy what you own, but DO NOT vote for anyone who has this toll keeper mentalty which has doubtless led to the sense of entitlement that led to the government daringly placing toll booths everywhere. PAS who knows how to bulldoze the toll booths, so PAS ready to get your legal team in your poltical party to work on this an propagate the unvotability of all other political parties who do not understand this? Bloodsucking ‘kutu’ policy coalitions who ignore these issues need to be thrown out!

It’s YOUR property, if you want to give anyone it’s your business, WHO THE HELL HAS A RIGHT to demand fees against what property one owns when given away ESPECIALLY when no money passes between the giving and receiving parties?!?

If 66% of the MPs decide Stamp Fees only cost $1, the Stanp Fees will indeed cost $1. These are the MPs needed to be voted in, so find out which MP concurs with this and which MP does not. The MP who does not, thinks they can extract a pound of flesh everytime someone moves their goods and property to a loved one or relative, they will be sadly mistaken.

Consult your MP on if they will grant this to decide if your MP is revotable or deserves your vote or needs to be run against, they too pay for stamp fees. Then there is the issue of candidate deposits? Those who keep the deposit at 8000 and 15,000 respectively effectively keeping out all the people who do not have this sort of money are efgfectively barring the ENTIRE low wealth class from participating in politics. This is UNACCEPTABLE. Find out which MPs want to lower these deposits to 8000 and 15,000 to 8.00 and 15.00 or at least refund the entire deposit IF that candidate did not win and that deposit is more than 50% of their total liquid asset and if they do not own a second home. Otherwise UNVOTABLE again!
