Jat leaders protest against central Govt on Khap issue

Members of the Khap launched a mass agitation at delhi on Monday against the central government's decision to enact a law to ban their council's community-related norms and allied dictums. They reiterated their united stand to combat the governments' plan to prohibit the council's directives and curb incidents of honour killings in the Jat community. "We want to tell that every community residing in this region is against it (proposed legislation questioning locus-standi of Khap Panchayat), this was the main motive behind this meeting. Secondly, the government's take on the Khap that it will be banned and prosecuted, it is a mistake on the part of the government," said Yudhvir Singh, General Secretary, All India Jat Mahasabha.
However, on this aspect, the Khap Panchayat members asserted that the council has never been party to such acts of violence, in contrast to the honour killings attributed to the community elders' notions on Gotra (social clan and family lineage). "We have told many times before that the Khap Panchayat does not issue diktats. Khap Panchayat always works for the good of the society and never takes a wrong decision," said Ram Singh Solanki, a Khap Panchayat functionary. Earlier, the Supreme Court had sought a response from the central government and eight states including Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand on the honour killing issue.

Major Surendra Poonia win 3 Medals at World medical games

Major Surendra Poonia's wins three medals at the World Medical Games in Porec (Croatia) more than a fortnight back. The 31-year-old Presidential Bodyguard says the will to do something for the nation pushed him to perform beyond expectations despite being the country's lone flag-bearer at the July 3-10 Games. A multi-faceted personality, Poonia studied medicine at the Armed Forces Medical College in Pune before opting for the special forces. Hailing from a family of farmers in Sikar, Rajasthan, Poonia now has, apart from the degree, a gold in power lifting, silver in discus and bronze in javelin.
The champion, who started out as a long-distance runner and still competes in some of the country's prestigious marathons, says he could not participate in the long distance events at Porec because he tore a calf muscle during training for his maiden international competition. “Basically, I am a long-distance runner but weeks before the event I tore my muscle,“ says Poonia, who has been part of 10th and 2nd Para, based in Kashmir and Siachen, and done duty for the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Congo for a year. After a six-month stint at Agra's 50 I-Para Brigade, he became a medical officer at the Rashtrapati Bhawan. While there, his dreams took wings. “The sports facilities at the Rashtrapati Bhawan gave me the opportunity to rekindle my desire to represent the country. It was a tough field in Porec where 47 countries and 2,743 athletes took part, some of them members of their national teams.“ His next target, “Win more medals at the World Games.“

Jat demands OBC reservation, threaten to block Delhi

The Akhil Bharatiya Jat Arakshan Sangharsh Samiti has warned that if the government does not pay heed to its demand for extending reservations to jats under the “other backward classes” category, they would disrupt the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October. It warned that the Commonwealth Games baton relay, which is now in Allahabad, might also be disrupted. The members of the community had on June 13 taken control of the Sonia Vihar water regulator head in Ghaziabad and cut off water supply to Delhi. Speaking at a press conference, the samiti’s national president, Mr Yeshpal Malik, said the ministry of social justice had promised the jat community that it would look into their demand by July 10.
Mr Malik said, “There is no indication from the government that it plans to do anything. Hence, we will chalk out our strategy and go ahead with our earlier declaration of disrupting the Commonwealth Games 2010 if the government does not respond.” He said members of the jat community, whether they be Hindus, Muslims or Sikhs, should be given reservation under the OBC category in Union government jobs and also in states where there is no such reservation — like Haryana, Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. Mr Malik also said the strategy of disrupting the Commonwealth Games would be chalked out on July 28 when members of the community will stage a “warning demonstration” at Jantar Mantar. Given that Delhi was “surrounded” by jats, Mr Malik warned, his members would be in a position to cut off power, petroleum, gas, milk and vegetable supplies to the national capital if the need arose.

Govt may bring special law for Honour killings

Dropping its earlier move to bring amendments in the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for including honour killings under its ambit, the Centre has decided to look into the scope of enacting a separate special law that will treat it as a social evil along the lines of the Commission of Sati (Prevention) Act. PM Manmohan Singh referred the matter to a Group of Ministers (GoM) on Thursday and agreed that views of states be sought, after the Cabinet, following a spirited discussion, backed Home Minister P Chidambaram’s contention that there was a need to give special focus to the issue of honour killings.
Sources said at the Cabinet meet, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal questioned the logic of moving amendments to the IPC along with the Indian Evidence Act and the Special Marriages Act to deal with honour killings. Sibal’s argument, supported by other colleagues like Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, was that any “honour” killing just amounted to murder and hence, the need should be on ensuring action over the murder charges rather than classify them as a separate category of murder. They were of the view that existing laws were adequate to deal with the problem.

Saina Nehwal - with jat attitute "Nothing is Impossible"

Saina Nehwal rising tennis star of India believe in "Nothing is Impossible". Until a few months ago, India's leading badminton writer Shivani Naik often complained about how Saina Nehwal was unresponsive to any journalistic probing – accessible, polite, but like a stone wall you couldn't break through easily. The only time Saina would let go - almost frothing at the mouth, the Jat blood in her expressing itself in coarse, but not abusive, Hindi – was when she spoke about players from China. This, mind you, wasn't a product of racial discrimination or patriotic fervour, but simply because the Chinese were considered impossible to defeat, and no Jat worth her mustard fields likes to believe anyone is unbeatable.
Ranked in the fringes of the top-10 back then, Saina was forever making strategies to counter the Chinese, working on her flick, her net-play, her smash, her court coverage, desperately seeking a way to outmaneuver the assembly line rather than play into its hands by getting involved in a direct slugfest. In the last few months, she has fanned her China obsession by gradually making inroads into women's badminton's impenetrable fortress, getting herself to a place where – after three titles in a row, including two Super Series victories, and with a world ranking of No 3 – a sustained assault on the final frontier is the next logical step.
