New Delhi: Thousands of Youth Congress party cadres assembled at Jantar Mantar today to protest against the BJP-led NDA government for failing to contain the issue of rising intolerance in the country.

They were also protesting against the denial and silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue. The agitators alleged, while the country was engulfed by intolerance, the Prime Minister was busy in his foreign tours.

In its “Sansad Gherao” program, Youth Congress activists said that they would continue their fight against those who are supporting the murderer of the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi.

The protesters targetted the government for the price hike of essential commodities as well,  especially onions and potatoes.

The Youth Congress blamed the BJP and the RSS for fuelling intolerance across the country.

The Opposition has been targeting the government on the issues of growing intolerance and it is obvious that the Congress-led opposition would try to suffocate the government using the imbroglio.

In this context, the Youth Congress recalled LK Advani’s recent comments to target the BJP saying, even the ‘Margdarshak’ was feeling the same.

The youth wing of Congress also claimed that the BJP was not only intolerant towards the minorities, but women in India were under attack. The recent Haryana case where a minister asked a lady SP to leave justifies the allegations of the congress.

Jyotiraditya Scindia said that atmosphere of intolerance was created by the BJP and it should be rid off. He quipped that BJP was interested in “gai pe charcha’ (discussions on the cow) rather than ‘chai pe charcha’ (discussion over tea).

Youth Congress claimed that BJP had dumped the youths who voted them to power.

Reportedly, a clash broke out between the police and the agitators during the Sansad Gherao program outside the Parliament. Police resorted to lathi charge and used water cannons to disperse the mob. Several youth congress workers were also detained.

However, the Opposition is firm on carrying out their protest programs.

India has always been known as a country inhabiting various cultures, traditions and religions. As Nehru claimed, the country showcases “Unity in diversity”. However, when it comes to religious tolerance the land has failed to show up when an incident of inter-religious correspondence comes forth.
The news published in The Hindu stated that a 32 year-old female homeopath was found to be a hostage in a Delhi based Hindu family. She was 25 years-old and at the time of the most important phase of her life, her entering into the institution of marriage, she was hosted by her family for being acknowledged in an affair with a Muslim boy by her family.

She was refused any kind of socialization with no access to internet or telephones. She remained locked inside the four walls of her house since 2009. Her coming out is no miracle, nor it is an outcome of the fact that her parents have realized their mistake. In the absence of her mother, she called the women’s helpline number 181 to seek help and was thus “imprisoned” by the team.
“Her mother reportedly threatened to commit suicide if she tried to escape, her father would thrash her and her family members even threatened to kill her for bringing dishonor to the family,” according to the Hindu report.

pd_domestic_violence_080207_msIt seems one of the most disturbing incidents in an age when the protests for freedom of speech and equality surround the city with the famous universities. One finds the city as epicenter for the celebrations of the “International Women’s Day”, however, the reach of this freedom where all women can exercise their needs seems to lack in a society which apparently discusses the movements like Save Girl Child and educate her.

The girl while being inside the walls of her house attempted a failed suicide being saved by the family members. The DCW reported, the words she uttered at first were: ‘please rescue me’. Further, the girl also disclosed how her family would show her videos from ‘love jihad’ claiming her boyfriend to be plotting against her.
She didn’t take any action against her parents and even didn’t ask for any hold against her boyfriend if he had moved on.  She is under the protection of DCW in their shelter and is happy to be rescued from the life as bad as in a prison.
