Instagram was down this morning, World cup match between India and New Zealand was abandoned yesterday, so overall productivity remained high, except of course amidst the Doctors in West Bengal. They are still busy striking. And joining them are some New Delhi doctors.
SURGICAL STRIKE AGAINST MAMATA
It is the sweet-smelling Friday, the date is 14th June and Striking junior doctors of Kolkata’s government hospitals yesterday defied Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s 2 pm deadline to get back to work, saying that won’t happen until they get better security. They also met Governor Kesari Nath Tripathi to discuss the situation. Mamata Banerjee has accused the BJP and the CPM of engineering the strike and playing “Hindu-Muslim politics”. The strike started after a junior doctor was assaulted at a government-run hospital in Kolkata by the relatives of a deceased patient. The BJP said the Chief Minister is not taking action as the miscreants are “her voters”. Doctors at Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences and the Delhi Medical Association have called for a strike on Friday.
A full-blown political war has started over the assault on the doctor and the subsequent strike. Senior BJP leader Mukul Roy has alleged that members of a particular community, who belong to Trinamool, carried out the attack on doctors. “Mamata Banerjee is not arresting the anti-social elements because they are her voters,” said Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh.
CPM central committee member Sujan Chakraborty said Mamata Banerjee does not seem interested in ending the impasse. “Is she is concerned about solving the problem, or just wants to politicise the matter? The way she was threatening the doctors, it seems she is not at all interested in ending the impasse,” he said.
“The BJP, with help from the CPM, is indulging in Hindu-Muslim politics. I am shocked to see their love affair,” Ms Banerjee hit back. “BJP chief Amit Shah is encouraging his party cadre to create communal tension and run propaganda on Facebook,”
Not only you Mamata B, but I am also equally shocked at seeing two extremists joining hands to fight another extremist.
Who called it Doctor’s strike and not a surgical strike?
UPPER CASTE VILLAGERS IN MP POUR KEROSENE IN DALIT WELL FOR USING BAND PARTY FOR MARRIAGE
There are plenty of issues to outrage on, but somehow, there are some which take away more outrage than others. For one, the next bit of news is just extremely sad and condemnable, but no one will outrage for it, no its not a Muslim story, rather a Dalit story, taking India back to the glorious old days, of the Britishers, because now the new OpIndia research suggests Caste was concocted by the British. Anyway, in Madhya Pradesh, A Dalit villager’s decision to hire a band party to welcome the bridegroom at his daughter’s wedding in a village in Madhya Pradesh drew cruel retribution from upper caste villagers, because the Dalits did not heed their warning of not using a band party but just simply a dhol. No there were no lynchings, no beating up, why drown them with water when you can just pollute the well.
Retribution from upper caste villagers came in the form of kerosene being put into a well used by so-called low castes.
TAMIL NADU WOMAN, SCOLDED BY HUSBAND FOR TIKTOK ADDICTION, DRINKS POISON; SENDS VIDEO VIA WHATSAPP
Since we are on poison, and here I mean the castism we so profoundly deny or reject, I move to another story, this one though is part of a big disturbing trend, Tik Tok. A 24-year old mother of two children committed suicide on Thursday in Tamil Nadu after she was scolded by her husband and prevented from using the short video-making app.
Anitha recorded herself as she drank the poison and then sent the video via WhatsApp to her husband, who is in Singapore. This is not the first time TikTok has led to somebody’s death.
PRAGYA THAKURS LAWYER WANTED TO KNOW HOW THE DOG THAT SNIFFED EXPLOSIVE SUBSTANCE ON HER BIKE BARK
Well honestly, there are very few things that shock me anymore, but there is plenty of amusement out there, courting your attention. Since we are on extremism, casteism, this one news item in today’s TOI took the bite out of a dog’s bark.
Pragya, the terror accused, cancer cured via Cow Urine Singh Thakur, also now an MP, who was also given a clean chit by the most honourable NIA,
The retired officer of the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad, the 121st witness to depose, told the special NIA court that in the wee hours of September 30, 2008, he saw spare parts of vehicles, including a bicycle and motorcycle, essence bottles and other material scattered at the spot where the blast had taken place. His report, written in Marathi, said a handler and a dog, Sean, were present. The trained dog indicated the presence of explosive substances on the bike parts.
During cross-examination, defence lawyer Ranjeet Sangle asked why the report hadn’t described any other article from the spot apart from the bike. The witness said the sniffer dog had given a signal only there and denied the suggestion that the handler had not shown the dog the other material at the spot.
“Can it be said the other scattered things did not have explosive substance, or the dog couldn’t point it out?” asked Sangle. “The dog only barked at the LML motorcycle (scattered parts),” replied the witness. The retired officer said the dog only gives a signal and it is for the handler to interpret it.
When Defense Lawyer Sangle asked how the dog had barked, the court took objection. Voices were raised on both sides. Recording the exchange, the court said: “The court asks how it can be answered, ‘how is the barking of the dog to be recorded’.” Sangle said he wanted to know how many times the dog had barked, once or twice. The witness said he did not know. As for Sean the dog, thankfully, he was not called for examination to bark in the court having gracefully retired from service and dead.

#BLUEFORSUDAN SOCIAL MEDIA TURNS BLUE FOR SUDAN
There is plenty of time to head to space, for now lets head to the International News section, and we start that with Sudan. Not sure how much you know, but the world is trying to turn #Bluefor Sudan. The blue wave started in honour of Mohamed Mattar – a victim of Sudan’s brutal military crackdown whose favourite colour was blue.
The 26-year-old engineer was fatally shot during the June 3 crackdown blamed by protesters on Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a paramilitary group led by a senior member of Sudan’s ruling Transitional Military Council.
Mattar was reportedly shot while trying to protect two women during the bloody dispersal of the protest camp outside the military headquarters. Mattar was reportedly shot while trying to protect two women during the bloody dispersal.
Social media users are showing solidarity with protesters in Sudan by changing their profile pictures
IRAN CALLS US OIL TANKER ACCUSATION UNFOUNDED
From waves of hatred, we head to an ocean full of potential war. Iran says it “categorically rejects” US claims that it is behind attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had blamed Iran for the “unprovoked attacks” on Thursday. Dozens of crew members were rescued after the blasts on the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous and the Front Altair, owned by a Norwegian company.
The blasts in one of the world’s busiest oil routes comes a month after four oil tankers were attacked off the United Arab Emirates and at a time when Iran and Japan were holding talks.
TRUMP DRUMS UP WHALE OF JOKES AFTER CALLING PRINCE CHARLES, PRINCE OF WHALES
And before we head out, no-one can provide comedy better than Comedy Central. Wrong, It’s Donald Trump and he has done it again, and most probably, he did it to get back at the British, or maybe he is just that dumb. We would never know.
United States President Donald Trump on Thursday lauded his own diplomacy with royalty and foreign leaders but mistakenly cast the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, as the “Prince of Whales”.
Whale whale whale, that is our cue to bid you goodbye. Have a safe weekend. We will be back on Monday, with probably a few Muslims arrested in India for allegedly cheering for Pakistan and the usual blah blah that happens around every Indo-Pak cricket match, that is, if this too, is not washed out.
Good bye from takeapart.in
