Delhi Police detained protesters agitating against the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as Film and Television Institute of India’s (FTII) chairman in front of Shastri Bhavan today. Protesters at ‘Stand in solidarity with FTII students’ saw the rough side of law after slogans urging Prime Minister Narendra Modi to act judiciously were raised.

The highly agitated protesters, who had gathered to show support to the students of FTII were sent packing to the Parliament Street police station.

The frustration and a sense of wrong being done to them was evident in the eyes of students, who raised passionate slogans against Information and Broadcasting minister Arun Jaitly, Narendra Modi and the general saffronization of educational institutes that’s been going in the country lately.

The solidarity protest was supposed to start at 2 PM. However, after starting at 2:15 PM it could not last for more than 20 minutes. The police forced the demonstrators into buses to be sent to the police station.

ACP Ved Bhushan told NewsGram that the protesters had not received permission for carrying out the demonstration and hence the police had to intervene.

A delegation from FTII including ex-chairman Saeed Mirza, Resul Pookutty and members of student bodies from FTII, JNU and NSD will be meeting Information and Broadcasting minister Arun Jaitely today at National Informatics Center.

FTII students along with other student bodies of the country have been protesting against the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as the chairman of the premier film making institute of the country.

The students are demanding Chauhan’s removal as FTII’s chairman citing professional and artistic incompetence as the reason.

“Films can lead to propaganda and that is the whole point behind this protest. See, we are supposed to be political film makers, but we don’t want to stay in a place with a political bias.” an alumnus of FTII, Saumik Bhattacharya told NewsGram

Pune, October 11, 2017 : Anupam Kher, an actor with a repertoire of over 500 movies including international projects, was named Chairman of the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune. The film industry hailed the move.

Official sources confirmed Anupam’s appointment. He will succeed the controversial Gajendra Chauhan, whose appointment had triggered student protests.

Anupam’s wife Kirron Kher, an actress and BJP MP from Chandigarh, told Times NOW: “I’m very happy. Of course, it’s a challenging job for anybody. It’s not going to be an easy job. These chairmanships are crown of thorns. Here, people do get against you, but I am sure Anupam will be able to take them along because he is an extremely talented person.”

Anupam, who began his acting career with “Saaransh” in 1984, also has his own acting institute Actor Prepares.

Kirron said Anupam was the right choice to head the FTII, which provides training in acting, direction and other technical aspects of film making in a country which is one of the largest producers of movies.

“So, I am a very proud wife today. I would like to thank the government and the Information and Broadcasting Ministry,” she said.

Asked what she meant by ‘crown of thorns’, she said: “I meant the CBFC, not FTII.”

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted: “Heartiest congratulations to Anupam Kher for being appointed as the Chairman of FTII.”

JNU Ideologues are Spewing hate in the name of Dissent and nurturing Anti-India ideologies

JNU has become den for left politics. VOA
  • By Amit Srivastava

Sep 16, 2017: With the help of media propaganda and public opinion manufacturers, JNU has become an epitome of left politics – Viciously nurturing the anti-India ideologies and placing them into state establishment through their sympathizers.

They hate a lot of things that are Indian or having Indian identities. Their perpetual anathema is cleverly placed with covert name of ‘dissent’. It would be interesting to know, how they instill a failed and violent ideology like Marxism through inroads of hate.

Before 93rd amendment for OBC quota in higher education, JNU had very progressive admission policy with weightage number for backward districts, castes and also for women. Though these deprivation points still exist, but since half of admission is done on caste lines, these points are less relevant now. Owing to its admission policy and standard entrance exam, JNU has been providing excellent higher education opportunity for the students from remote rural areas at par with metro educated students.

Ironically, left parties with help of communist faculty members also exploit this opportunity as they get fresh cadres who could easily get disconnected caused by the language difficulties, cultural shock and administrative difficulties. A person with deeply rooted Indian value system won’t accept valueless violent ideology of Marx. Brainwashing such person is not easy. Hence the process of indoctrination begins with very first day of admission at JNU.

Earlier, admission process in JNU was cumbersome and lengthy. Comrades used to catch new comers in the name of admission assistance. Now, this opportunity is lost as there is single window admission process is adopted by JNU administration. Another step to trap the new comers is artificial scarcity of hostel. You are on their mercy of ‘these seniors’ who offer you to stay with them. And sometimes 6-7 students stay in 10-by-15 hostel rooms. More freshers in one comrade’s room means more problem, hence more opportunity to brainwash them.

First stage of abomination start with inciting new-comers to hate individuals including hating own self. This hate is designed to suit the social conflict theory of communism. If you are a general category student, you must hate yourself for being born in ‘upper caste’ and must accept it wholeheartedly than only you would be ‘ready’ to abuse political opponents on caste line.

If you are from OBC-SC-ST and Minority, you must hate those ‘upper caste’ guys living with you in the same campus, no matter they’re even poorer or more deprived than you. Irrespective of rationality and humanity, you must hate them; because they’re born in bourgeoisie castes, and you should assume yourself as proletariat, even if you are richer and dominate than most of them. This hate is mandatory. Selective crimes are extrapolated to justify it. Incidents like Khailanji, where Dalits were burned alive, are used to consolidate this hate. But details of culprits are purposefully hidden and ignored as they don’t belong to ‘general caste’ and this may derail the hate direction.

Minority students have to hate Hindu co-students as per the conditioning of the leftist mentors. Hindus are blamed for their all problems. OBC-SC-STs are encouraged to hate Hinduism too. If there are complacent with it, they’re encouraged to shun Hinduism and accept more exploitative Islam, Christianity or atheism. At same time, Muslims and Christians students are encouraged to be more religious and fanatic for their respective faith. This is why JNU communists encourage Islamic or Christian festivals but gets reprimanded if students celebrate Hindu festivals in the campus.

This abhorrence has another intense level of inculcation. Female students from remotely rural areas are too attached with their families. Girls won’t be a good ‘recruiting’, ‘facilitating’ and a devoted comrade, until they respect family system and existing social ethics of the society. Hence, they’re taught that they’re the master of their own body. Their vagina belongs to them and their father has no right to say with whom they shall sleep. This typical teaching is very crucial and preached through woman comrades in very delicate ways by living with them, fanaticizing with them with instilling a false sense of empowerment and freedom among them… only to sexually exploit them for own leaders or an allurement for the new recruits.

JNU’s left ideologues are not limited to a close campus. Congress governments have been giving them important posts in order to devise new divide-and-rule policies. After debacle of 2014, these master-less Maoists of JNU are left with no one to support. Their political existence was long gone.  Post General Elections 2014, they engineered several caste-riots, devouring state-funding and abusing the same state. Unfortunately, they failed into it too.

Within JNU, they opened another sister concern named ‘BAPSA’ – an organization that not only abuse Hinduism on daily basis, but also abuse the students who belong to Brahmin or ‘Savarn’ castes. The right to live with dignity for these ‘savarn caste’ students is violated by BAPSA and left-relict in name of Social Justice. Ironically, JNU administration allows such caste abuses in name of sociological studies. Much grave violation of thousands of students’ fundamental right to live with dignity is violated every day.

However, these avant-garde social terrorists still think that they can potentially harm the ruling BJP party by taking Bhimrao Ambedkar’s name. Now a days, Student wing of Naxalites, DSU used ‘Jai Bhim’ along with ‘Lal Salam’ in order to immunize itself from the responsibility of offending content it circulate within JNU campus. It is high time for Ministry of Human Resource Development and JNU administration to stop the violation of personal dignity of students. We must not allow the abuses and exploitations just for the sake of intellectual pleasure and useless showoff of tiny campus victory.

  • The Chief Minister is now supposed to offer his defense to the Delhi High Court
  • Jethmalani says that the Chief Minister owes him two crores for his appearances

New Delhi, Aug 23, 2017:  Aam Admi Party Chief Arvind Kejriwal was asked to clarify if he lied in court by pretending that he did not ask for abusive language to be used against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, mentioned NDTV report.

Previously, Kejriwal stated in the court that he had not instructed his former counsel Ram Jethmalani to use  “crook” to describe the union minister in court. But Jethmalani claims that the Chief Minister used harshly insulting words to attack Jaitley.

Jethmalani declared that according to Jaitley, Kejriwal had misled the court by denying the allegations. In fact, he says Jethmalani has written to him to insist that was the case.
The Chief Minister is now supposed to offer his defense to the Delhi High Court.

In 2015, Jaitley sued Kejriwal and five top leaders of his Aam Aadmi Party for defamation after they accused him of corruption during his 13-year tenure as the top boss of the DDCA, the powerful cricket association that handles Delhi and its surrounding areas.  In two separate cases – criminal and civil – Jaitley has sought damages of 10 crores.

During court the proceedings last month, Jaitley complained to Jethmalani’s language and said ‘Kejriwal’s team is delaying hearings in the Delhi High Court.’

The court asked Kejriwal to abstain from “scandalous” and “indecent language.”

After the Chief Minister said that he had not approved the abusive words, the lawyer riposted in a blog: “Ask your conscience how many times you used worse abuses than a mere ‘crook.’ You have hundred times asked me to teach this crook a lesson.”

Jethmalani says that the Chief Minister owes him two crores for his appearances. It seems that, in his new enmity with Kejriwal, he has become an indirect ally of Jaitley.
