Dangerous Leaders Who Love Illegal Immigrants and Disdain The Native

Are they not the shameless leaders who shed their tears for Rohingyas while brutally killing Gorkhas citizens in Darjeeling whose brave sons stand on their toes patrolling the hostile Indo-Park-borders?

Every sovereign country should always safeguard its borders with utmost care. It is in fact in view of the potential security fallout. For this, all countries in the world have their own constitutions which their citizens should adhere to. The leaders of a country must be extra alert, and totally unbending. Needless to say, there are various punitive measures adopted by an individual country to deal with the illegal border crossers — ranging from a short detention to the monetary fine; from a harsh jail sentence to even inhuman physical tortures.

But in our country, it is shockingly opposite. Here illegal immigrants are welcomed with crazy incentives and the assurance of protection. Yes, certain political parties walk those illegal immigrants through to settle down well. They instantly provide Epic card, ration card and other freebies. What more, they are even given the liberty to flex their muscles! Have you not heard many illegal immigrants banging around and knocking down our fellow citizens? No arguing, a lot many terror activities that have punctured the very fabric of the society in many states in India, have perpetrated by the illegal immigrants and their sympathizers.

Please open the ears and eyes of your inner sensibility. It is time that citizens should stand up to point out the real culprits. Those who have involved in these treasonable activities for decades after decades should be brought to account. Why the custodians of the constitution are silent when the political leaders brazenly involve themselves in anti-nation activities?

Watch out how the West Bengal Chief Minister has screamed against NRC in Assam. Does her outcry not well resonate with what “gatbandhan” gang wants? Rahul, Kejriwal, Mayawati, Lalu, Pinarayi Vijayan, Sitaram Yechury…. are up to anything. They shake hands with any forces to get hold of the chair of power. The security of the nation has never become their concern. A chance of losing the vote-bank is normally what drives them insane. They usually cast their gaze beyond the boundaries. The illegal immigrants are whom they invite and embrace. Are they not the shameless leaders who shed their tears for Rohingyas while brutally killing Gorkhas citizens in Darjeeling whose brave sons stand on their toes patrolling the hostile Indo-Park-borders?

Alas, will you still allow such monstrous brigands to join hand together to snatch the power to rule the country? They will doubtlessly dig your graves — look at Kashmir, Kerala, Assam and now West Bengal? Please note, they have long sold their soul for power and pelf — so they have nothing lose but we have everything to lose.

Press Freedom Report, China A “Festering” Black Hole When It Comes To Media

China is a “festering” black hole when it comes to freedom of the press, a Paris-based media watchdog said in a recent report.

China fell one place lower on Reporters Without Borders’ (RSF) annual Index of Press Freedom, the group said, “because of the monopoly of power exercised by [its] president Xi Jinping.”

Citing Xi’s amendment of China’s constitution to enable him to serve a second, indefinite term in office, RSF said that the ruling elite suppress all debate in the country’s state-run media, “while cracking down relentlessly on citizen journalists who try to make a dissenting voice heard.”

“China’s anti-democratic model, based on Orwellian high-tech information surveillance and manipulation, is all the more alarming because Beijing is now promoting its adoption internationally,” RSF warned.

Not happy with obstructing the work of journalists within its borders, China is now trying to establish a “new world media order,” the report said.

“The Chinese system of total news control is increasingly serving as a model for other anti-democratic regimes,” it said.

More controls in recent years

Chinese media commentator Jin Zhongbing agreed with the report’s findings.

“There is a general sense that there are more [controls] in recent years, including legislation and various kinds of regulations, than there were before,” Jin said. “Those of us who work in the media often find that our stories don’t get published, because they touch on certain sensitive words.”

“It feels as if the definition of what is sensitive is getting broader and broader,” he said. “The space left by these policies is getting smaller and smaller, so it’s a worrying situation.”

Bruce Lui, senior journalism lecturer at the University of Hong Kong, said that even journalists working in or traveling to Hong Kong could be at risk of arrest for alleged infractions of Chinese law, under a proposed amendment to the city’s extradition law allowing the rendition of “suspected criminals” to mainland China at Beijing’s request.

“It used to be fine once you had gotten across the border into Hong Kong, but now, people will start to wonder whether they should take on certain types of reporting,” Lui said.

“If [journalists] pursue certain stories, such as anything to do with the military, or the assets of the family members of Chinese leaders, offshore companies and so on, then they could get you on any pretext,” he said.

“I think this is going to make some journalists a bit less bold about uncovering information in mainland China,” Lui said. “Ultimately, it will have an impact on the media’s function in monitoring those in power, and the public’s right to know.”

“It will mean that those in power have a totally free hand,” he said.

An extension of the CCP

President Xi has insisted that the state media are an extension of the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP), sharing its aims and political goals, and act as its mouthpiece.

Last September, the U.S. Justice Department demanded that China’s official Xinhua News Agency and state-owned international broadcaster CGTN register as foreign agents.

Xinhua News Agency is directly controlled by the CCP and answers to the country’s cabinet, the State Council, while CGTN is the English-language network of Beijing-based state broadcaster CCTV, under the direct control of the party’s Central Propaganda Department.

Media regulators have banned the country’s internet portals like Tencent and Sina from conducting any independent journalism of their own, requiring them to post syndicated content from organizations on the CCP’s approved state media whitelist.

The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China (FCCC) found in a recent survey of its members in January that more than half thought conditions had deteriorated in 2018, and surveillance and official retaliation had become the hallmarks of reporting from China.

Nearly half of the respondents said they were followed or “were aware that a hotel room was entered without permission.” Ninety-one percent said they were concerned about the security of their phones, while 22 percent were aware authorities tracked them using public surveillance systems.

Overall, 55 percent of respondents said they believed conditions deteriorated in 2018.

Official harassment or retaliation also rendered Chinese nationals working for foreign news organizations vulnerable, the report found, with 37 percent of 91 respondents reporting that their Chinese colleagues were pressured, harassed, or intimidated. (RFA)
