  1. Since the situation in India is escalating quickly, here is a new thread for it. As for today, during a rally in Ballari, MLA (member of legislative assembly), Somashekhara Reddy of Karnataka, as a warning to Muslims, said, “I want to caution those who are protesting… This (the crowd at the pro-CAA rally) is just 5%. If your antics grow, if 100% people come, just imagine what your situation will be.” “Bewakoofs (idiots) from Congress are lying to you,”, “and you’re believing them and coming out onto the streets. Hey, we’re the 80%! You’re just 17%. If we turn against you what will your situation be?” Then he said to TNM, “I have not stated anything against anybody. I just said we Hindus are 80% and if the 20% Muslim population damages our property, we cannot just stand by and watch." He further said, "Caution, tread with caution. This is our country. You have to live in our country. This is my country. My country,” “If you want to live in this country… the Australian Prime Minister had given a statement once. You know what she said? “If you want to stay in this country, you have to live as per our customs. Caution. If you don’t, I will send you back to your country.” Make sure that you don’t bring such a situation in this country," [it looks like the Australian PM has not said that in reality] https://www.thenewsminute.com/article/we-re-80-you-re-17-karnataka-mla-warns-muslims-against-anti-caa-protests-115305
  2. Links: http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/07/16388812-india-gang-rape-case-accused-duo-offer-to-testify-against-others?lite - http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2013/01/09/india-gang-rape-case-lawyer.html In short, a woman was raped on a privately owned public transit bus in Delhi, the capital of India. She was with a friend, and the two were attacked. Passengers, including the driver, took turns raping the woman over and over, this took hours. She later died in hospital. Lawyers for the accused are saying it was her fault for not being a "respectable" woman and for riding the bus in the evening. The case is showing the problem women have in India, where this sort of thing is more common than one might expect. It will be interesting how it turns out. My take: This issue won't just "go away" once the trial is over. This will be a real tipping point for society in India. What remains to be seen if it will result in more rights for women, or, a push back and less rights.
