India lodges complaint over new Chinese map | DW News
India has lodged a diplomatic objection with China over a new map which lays claim to Indian territory. The so called 2023 'Standard Map' of China was published earlier in the week. The new demarcation includes Aksai Chin in the west and the state of Arunachal Pradesh in the eastern part of the border between India and China. Aksai Chin is controlled by China but claimed by India and Arunachal Pradesh is a state of India, that China claims as part of Tibet.

Torture, ****, killings in Manipur: An Indian state's brutal conflict


The segregation of communities in this corner of the world's fastest-growing major economy feels like a heavily-militarised border separating countries at war.

A sense of fear is all pervasive in Manipur since shocking violence between their community and minority Kuki groups broke out, marked by brutal killings and sexual crimes against women. More than 200 people have been killed, roughly two-thirds of them Kukis, a collective name for the Kuki, Zomi, Chin, Hmar and Mizo tribes who are mostly Christians.

On 4 May, two Kuki-Zomi women were paraded naked by a mob of Meitei men. The younger woman was allegedly gangraped, her father and 19-year-old brother beaten to death.

"To see how my daughter was treated, after my husband and son were killed, it made me want to die. My husband was a church elder. He was soft spoken and kind. His arms were slashed with knives. My son was in the 12th grade, a gentle boy who never fought with anyone. He was brutally beaten with rods," she sobbed as she spoke.

Despite a police complaint being registered in May, no investigation into the incident took place until a video of it surfaced on social media in July. That's when the conflict in Manipur caught the attention of many in India and around the world.

Kukis accuse hardline Meitei groups of carrying out orchestrated attacks against minority families living in Imphal and surrounding areas.

Hundreds of homes belonging to people from both communities were set on fire or destroyed, churches and temples burnt. Some 60,000 people across both communities are estimated to be displaced

the Meiteis and Kukis are completely physically segregated, forbidden to enter areas the other dominates.

"We are not here with evil intentions. We do not want violence. We are compelled to take up arms to defend ourselves against the Meiteis," he said.

"There have been instances where the police have allowed them to slip through. They can't be fully trusted," he claimed.

Both communities express disappointment in India's national government.

"I felt disheartened that Prime Minister Modi only spoke after the video of Kuki women. It made me unhappy. Isn't Manipur a part of India? Then why are we being neglected?" Tomba asks, sitting in the Meitei bunker.

 if the national government wants, it can resolve the crisis quickly.

"We haven't heard anything from them [India's government] for months. We feel they do not care about the lives or suffering of so many innocent Indian citizens. We are clearly not a priority," Khakham said

3 Haryana women gang-**** in front of husbands, children


The women alleged that while they were asleep, the assailants took their husbands and children out of the rooms and tied them with ropes, before raping them in turns.

Three women in Haryana’s Panipat district were allegedly gang-**** by a group of four masked men in the presence of their family members, including children, early on Thursday, officials said.

The accused men, armed with knives and other pistols, barged into the house where the three families reside around 1 am, sexually assaulted the women aged 24, 25 and 35 years and decamped with cash and silver ornaments, the police said.

According to the police, while escaping out of the village, the same gang also allegedly robbed a man of Rs 5,000 and assaulted his wife who later succumbed to injuries.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the accused men might be the same set of individuals who had threatened the families to vacate their premises about a month ago.

“The gang then locked them up in one of the rooms. Then, they pulled us (the women) into the verandah and **** us in turns. They threatened us not to raise a voice and kept torturing us till 4 am.

Girl, 14, is gang-**** then burned alive inside a furnace before her horrified brother discovers her jewellery among charred remains in India


A 14-year-old girl was gang-**** before being burned alive in a furnace - only for her horrified brother to discover her jewellery among charred remains in India. 

Officers have charged 11 men over the shocking sex attack and murder in Rajasthan after the bones of the teenager were found burning inside the kiln.

The girl, who has not been named, left her house to take care of her family's goats before she went missing. After she failed to return home, her family launched an urgent search to find her.

On Sunday, a spokesperson for the police confirmed the girl was alive when she was set on fire.

Court documents also suggest that the victim was splashed with petroleum-based chemicals before she was burned alive.

The horrifying murder has caused anger and outrage not only among the bereaved family but across the country.

Only a few months ago, two women in Manipur were allegedly paraded naked and sexually assaulted by a mob.

The violence against women and young girls has led to nation-wide protests, with people demanding urgent action for their safety.

India’s Hindu children are being radicalised – will the country speak up?


It’s happening in schools and homes. And while Modi’s BJP might gain, generations of India’s Hindus will lose.

A Muslim friend from a town in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh recently called, seeking counsel.

His young daughter had told him the previous day that her friends refused to play with her any more – after they were warned by other children to stay away from her because of her religion.

This is an experience most Muslims have gone through while growing up in India. They are familiar with anti-Muslim slurs and cuss words used against them. But something new is happening which is radically different from earlier times.

While the Indian media and politicians have long harped on the supposed dangers of radicalisation among Muslim youth, or of the threat of far-left propaganda, we are now witnessing the turbocharged expression of a reality the country has never confronted: the radicalisation of Hindu youth.

It is an everyday radicalisation of young men and women who appear very normal, until they decide to target Indian Muslims and Christians

They are part of public, over-ground groups like the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyaarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS); and the Bajrang Dal, the militant youth wing of the RSS. All of them are affiliates of the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), which gives them political clout and a veneer of respectability.

Members of the ABVP and the Bajrang Dal have been involved in numerous cases of physical violence against students and teachers, especially Muslims and Christians. Yet earlier this year, when the Congress party – the principal national opposition – declared that it would consider banning the Bajrang Dal if it came to power in the southern state of Karnataka, no less than Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised slogans in defence of the militant outfit.

Recently, a video surfaced in India and went viral in which a young Hindu girl is seen singing “Desh ke gaddaron ko Goli maro …” (shoot the traitors of the country). She is surrounded by elders who are clapping and encouraging her.

This slogan was made popular by a minister in the Modi government who was targeting Muslim women and men for protesting against the controversial new citizenship law passed in 2020 that discriminates against Muslim asylum seekers. The slogan has since been used in rallies and videos to target Muslims.

This video encapsulates a reality that Hindus do not want to talk about.

the atmosphere that dominates today’s India.

the slogan “Jai Shri Ram” in their class. This slogan is used by the RSS to proclaim Hindu dominance.

Talking to teachers and principals, one realises that the radicalisation of young Hindus, while an ongoing process, has acquired dangerous proportions in recent years, fuelled by hate-mongering TV channels, internet platforms and WhatsApp groups that have been relentlessly spreading anti-Muslim propaganda.

In the last decade, it has become common to see adolescents, even children, brandishing swords and other weapons, raising hateful slogans targeting Muslims, and even vandalising mosques and Islamic shrines.

These young Hindus see that violence against Muslims and Christians is often celebrated or at least tolerated, sometimes approvingly, in their families and society.

They see that far from suffering consequences for hate speech and hate crimes, anti-Muslim and anti-Christian acts help those who carry them out.

A major source of this hatred towards Muslims and Christians is the chain of educational institutions run by organisations affiliated with the RSS.

inculcate ‘nationalism’ in young minds, which is synonymous with anti-Muslim and anti-Christian hatred.

that the only way to reclaim the country’s past glory is by teaching Muslims and Christians a lesson.

Scores of vigilante groups have mushroomed all over India

Unfortunately, the radicalisation of Hindu youth often goes unnoticed as it is approved by their families, whom they see indulging in a range of aggressions against Muslims: It could be something as bizarre as protesting against their Muslim neighbours praying in their own houses.

Once hatred is normalised, violence follows naturally.

Yet while the BJP might benefit politically

A leader of worth would feel a responsibility to unite all the different religious and racial groups of a country, not encourage and perpetuate identitarian divisions.

India teacher investigated for telling pupils to slap Muslim peer


Police in India are investigating a video that shows a school teacher telling her pupils to slap their seven-year-old Muslim classmate.

The boy is filmed in tears as he is slapped, allegedly for getting his times tables wrong.

The video went viral on social media, and has triggered widespread dismay and condemnation.

India's opposition leader Rahul Gandhi blamed the government for stoking religious intolerance.

"Why are you hitting him so lightly? Hit him hard," the teacher is heard telling the children, as the boy stands crying.

"Start hitting him on the waist... His face is turning red, hit him on the waist instead," she added.

Rights groups have warned that hate crimes and violence against India's large Muslim minority have increased since Prime Minister Narendra Modi took office in 2014.

Uttar Pradesh has been governed by his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) since 2017.

Mr Gandhi said the party had contributed to religious tensions felt across India.

"Sowing the poison of discrimination in the minds of innocent children, turning a holy place like school into a marketplace of hatred," he posted to social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

"This is the same kerosene spread by the BJP that has set every corner of India on fire."

I have no problems with Indian people, however I will defend myself against the racists among you. You put huge disrespect on my name calling me a terrorist, a couple rounds of combat and you prolific breeders will come to fear me.

India: Sectarian violence between Hindus and Muslims on the rise


The widow of a Hindu man killed in the violence says it was caused by a hardline Hindu nationalist march - after which bulldozers were sent in by the BJP-ruled state to destroy Muslim-owned businesses.

It's dusk in Mudlada in Panipat, a city at the heart of India's cow belt - a state at the centre of a wave of recent communal clashes in India.

bulldozers sent in by the BJP-ruled state to destroy Muslim-owned businesses it claimed were illegal.

Harkesh Sharma, a Hindu shopkeeper, says most of the businesses were Muslim-owned but had Hindu tenants. He says they were given no warning and that both communities were hit hard.

Under Hindu nationalist leaders, sectarian violence has flared in India. Critics of the government say the bulldozers have become a symbol of anti-Muslim hate, a vehicle for injustice.

Outside the mosque, one Muslim worshipper tells me, Hindu nationalism is intensifying a religious divide in the country.

"They are hating other communities, so this is disturbing to any nation," he says.

"Because if hate will be a cure, the nation will not progress."

India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, has strongly denied encouraging religious polarisation and anti-Muslim hate speech.

Recently in fact, he hailed India as the "mother of democracy".

Modi has certainly embraced the image as a global mentor. The global demand for his leadership is a powerful force and a potentially powerful distraction from whatever is happening domestically.

Ujjain: India outrage as **** girl walks around seeking help


A video showing a young girl walking around seeking help after being **** has sparked anger in India.

Many people expressed outrage after CCTV footage showed a man appearing to wave the girl away when she approaches him.

But police told local media that the girl, who walked around Ujjain city in Madhya Pradesh state for more than two hours, was helped by some people.

A senior police official said a medical examination showed the girl was ****.

Two men, both tuk-tuk drivers, were arrested on Thursday after police reviewed CCTV footage. Four others have been detained.

According to the police complaint, the girl is 15 years old

Ujjain police superintendent Sachin Sharma told ANI news agency on Thursday that the girl was "incoherent and could not initially give any details about her whereabouts".

 At one point, she approaches a man who seems to wave his hand at her, before walking away again.

"She could not speak. Her eyes were swollen," Rahul Sharma told news channel NDTV.

Opposition leaders in the state have condemned the incident and criticised the governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the safety of women.
