PROTEST IN NEW YORK ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16TH
Indian American Community in the New York/NewJersey area is organizing a Protest Demonstration
Near Indian Consulate in New York City
[Corner of 64th Street and Fifth Avenue]
on Sunday, October 16th
from 12:00 to 02:00 PM.
Please join us in expressing your disgust and abhorrence against the unwarranted harassment of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of Janata Party and former Cabinet Minister who has emerged as the embodiment of resistance against totalitarian and corrupt system.
Today anti-corruption movement is result of Dr. Swamy efforts started as far back as 2008. He is one person out of 1.2 billion who could nail many of the culprits of the 40 billion dollar 2G scam, from Raja, Kanimozhi and many others. As his court case gets close to those at the root of those in corruption, there were inimic forces attempting to muzzle his voice and efforts.
It is alleged that under pressure from Home Mr. Chidambaram, the Delhi crime branch has registered an FIR against Dr. Swamy. Dr. Swamy cannot be cowed down by adopting vindictive attitude or dictatorial techniques. In a recent poll in The Times of India, 81% people said that Dr. Swamy is being targeted by the UPA Government for his role in the 2G spectrum scam case.
In addition to filing frivolous FIRs, Govt refuses to act on his request for housing in safer area in New Delhi to protect from Congress goons and Jihadists. Here are examples of attacks:
Aug 8, 2011: Dr. Swamy house in New Delhi was attacked by Congress workers
Feb 21, 2009: Dr. Swamy was physically attacked in Tamilnadu by lawyers right in front of High Court
Oct 25, 2008: Dr. Swamy party office was ransacked in Madurai
India is neither a Banana Republic nor a fiefdom of some Dynasty. It is a full-fledged democracy in which freedom of diverse views is constitutionally guaranteed.
Dr. Swamy is being hounded by the Governmental agencies for writing an article three months ago in which he had appealed to all the Hindus to unite against the biggest challenge of the world — Islamic terrorism. There were no communal disturbances due to the article. Calling Dr. Swamy anti-Muslim is a lie perpetrated by corrupt and opportunists. His own son-in-law is an Indian Muslim to whom is very close. Many forget that in Aug 1987, he undertook a fast-unto-death to demand an inquiry into the illegal killing of Muslim youth by Police in Hashimpura, Meerut and forced the Govt to act.
Indians need to come together to act against the corrupt who destroying the nation. You are again cordially requested to participate in the protest along with your friends.

Subramanian Swamy claims threat from Congress, jihadis

NEW DELHI: After tormenting the government over 2G cases in court, Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy has pointed to an enhanced security threat from Congress activists and Islamic radicals to seek a house in central Delhi for a safer environment.
The former MP recently wrote to the government stating that his success in courts and his “constructive” views on Islamic terrorism had led to an increase in threats. The situation was compounded by his living in Nizamuddin East, which is accessible to Congress workers as well as Islamic radicals.
The request is with the home ministry and is being evaluated in the light of Swamy referring to a case of vandalism at his residence which he says was organized by the Congress. The leader’s comment that Muslims be denied voting rights if they did not recognize their Hindu legacy ignited a controversy and led to demands that his assignment at Harvard be terminated.
In his letter, Swamy has said that Harvard University extended him security during travel in the US and in classrooms and also quoted a representation by retired judges, civil servants and armed forces personnel for improved protection.
Arguing that he needs safer housing, Swamy said he would like a “AB type” official residence, with a ground and first floor besides an enclosed lawn, in an area like Pandara Road, Mathura Road or Zakir Hussain Marg in central Delhi. Swamy hoped that the government has the political will to act on his request.
When contacted, Swamy told TOI, “I had received a threat letter from al-Qaida sometime back and then another letter from LTTE. I forwarded these letters (to the police).”

A group of unidentified men allegedly attacked the house of Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy in Nizamuddin area of south-east Delhi on Sunday evening. Swamy’s 38-year-old daughter, Suhasini Haider, was alone when some people, allegedly shouting slogans in favour of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, barged into the house, said Swamy’s wife Dr. Roxna. She said, “My husband is in the US. I was shopping at Khan Market and my daughter Suhasini was alone in the house.”

“Our security guard Jai Singh, a Delhi Police Head Constable, tried to stop the assailants but they overpowered him. They broke the flowerpots and tried to break our doors. My daughter called the police around 5 pm but by the time the police control room van could reach, the goons had fled,” she added.

When asked what could be the reason behind the attack, she said, “My husband filed the first case in the 2G scam in Supreme Court of India. I don’t know that could it be a reason behind this incident,” she said. Meanwhile, speaking to MiD DAY, additional commissioner of police, south-east, Ajay Chaudhary said the police have lodged an FIR regasding criminal trespass in this respect.
“We have lodged an FIR against unknown people under Sections 451 (house-trespass in order to commit offence) and 457 (lurking house trespass or house-breaking by night in order to commit offence punishable with imprisonment) of IPC and are looking into the matter,” said Chaudhary.
A police source said recently, Swamy had written an article regarding Islamic Terror in a daily newspaper, which was not received well by the public. In the article, Swamy had asked the Muslim community to proudly declare their ‘Hindu’ ancestry and wished that India be declared a ‘Hindu Rashtra (state)’. Delhi Court had then directed Delhi Police to file a status report regarding this statement on August 16.
Earlier, Tilak Marg SHO was ordered to file the status report but now the case has been transferred to the Nizamuddin SHO. National Commission for Minorities had also issued a notice to Swamy.
The act of vandalism is ridiculous. We live in a democracy and respect free speech. If somebody wants to protest, they should use the same forum or take the party concerned to the court. But what happened was despicable. A few Muslims give a bad name to the whole community and that is what the Hindu fanatic community wants. All said and done, in my personal opinion, I do not agree with Swamy’s article at all. It was inflammatory, in bad taste and did not achieve anything. As an editor, I would not have published such an article. So, in a way, DNA acted very irresponsibly.
The article was extremely uncalled for. The method of dealing with such offensive writing, however, should be legal. We hope the law will take its own course.
BJP Steate president
The whole incident is worrisome. Proper action should be taken against the culprits. Nobody, belonging to any party, can attack a person’s home in this way. Law should take its course now. I condemn this act of vandalism
For years now, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy has been mired in controversies. In November 2008, he wrote the first of five letters to the Prime Minister, seeking permission to prosecute A. Raja in regard to the 2G spectrum scam. The PM, however, took no action, leading Swamy to file a case on his own in the Supreme Court of India. Recently, he wrote an article in a daily newspaper, that invited sharp criticism from many quarters. In the article, he set out a programme to deal with Islamic terror, including repealing of Article 370, removing various mosques, disenfranchising non-Hindus who refuse to acknowledge their Hindu ancestry, prohibiting conversion from Hinduism to other religions and so on. National Commission for Minorities then accused him of violating IPC Section 153A.

Chennai, 17 February, Indian Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy was manhandled and abused by a group of lawyers supporting Eelamish Freedom Fighter organization (LTTE) in a court room at the Madras High Court today.

A group of of pro-LTTE advocates entered the court hall of Justice P K Mishra and K Chandru, while they were hearing a petition in connection with the ‘Chidambaram temple case’, in which Swamy was present to plead himself. Dr. Swamy is a Self-Loathing Tamil who hates the LTTE and does not agree that they are the SOLE REPRESENTATVES ® of the Tamil People. This Traiterous Lackey of the GoSL has been trying to stifle the Righteous Tamil Communalism that has been brewing in Toilet Nadu for many years.

Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy’s office in Madurai, which was targeted by a mob on Friday.
MADURAI: A mob, claiming to represent Tamil Vazhakkaringar Koottamaippu (Federation of Tamil Advocates) and Puratchigara Ilaignar Munnani (Revolutionary Youth Front), on Friday ransacked the office of Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy on Lal Bahadur Shastri Road here.
According to eyewitnesses, the mob, carrying placards and sticks, came in a procession to the office and raised slogans against Dr. Swamy for his stand on the Sri Lankan issue. While a few entered the twin-building office premises through the gate, others scaled the wall. They stoned the building and damaged the lights, nameplate and flag mast. On entering the office, they pulled down the chairs, almirah and telephone, and attacked the Madurai rural district president of the party, S. Purushothaman.
“They were carrying footwear and broomsticks. I was attacked with sticks. Some of them were wearing white shirt and black trousers,” said Mr. Purushothaman. The mob also damaged a two-wheeler parked outside the office. A mobile phone and Rs.3000 kept at the office were missing.
One of the two buildings is used as residence by Dr. Swamy. This building, on the left side, was not targeted. Two persons, including the watchman, sustained injuries in the attack.
The police said the mob had earlier participated in a demonstration at Tallakulam where slogans were shouted against those who opposed the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. The demonstration was organised by Tamil groups in protest against the military action in Sri Lanka.
The Tallakulam police arrested Pandi (58) of Tamil Desiya Iyakkam, Velmurugan and Mayalagu, students of law, in connection with the incident. Cases were filed under Sections 147 (rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapons), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 355 (assault), 379 (theft), 452 (trespass) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code along with provisions of Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act.
Dr. Swamy said he would file a petition in the Madras High Court on Saturday seeking attachment of properties of the Dravidar Kazhagam till the damage was recovered. “I will also demand dismissal of the State government,” he said, while calling his office from New Delhi over phone.
