Gujarat orphanage expels two HIV-positive boys


It’s sad to hear that two HIV-positive boy’s age between sex and nine have been forced to leave an orphanage in Gujarat. By reading this news I felt sick, disgust and sad. This news put in me into deep thinking. I asked question myself is India really moving forward. Is our society is so conservative? In terms of economic yes we are making progress moving forward but in terms society thinking I guess we are still living in 17th century.

People living with HIV and AIDS, enjoys equal rights that must be honored by society and governments. We can not discriminate any one by their health, colour or caste religion. It’s shame. We as citizen should at least try to understand that people living with, or affected by, HIV enjoy the same respect and rights as others and are entitled to unconditional support and acceptance within their faith communities, and in wider society, at local, national and international levels. Wake Up.

Just a Reminder:

India has now overtaken South Africa as the country with the largest number of cases.

 

 

 

AHMEDABAD (Reuters) – Two HIV-positive boys have been forced to leave an orphanage in Gujarat after staff said they posed an unacceptable risk to the safety of other children, an official said on Friday.

“I am sad and sorry for them. Children play, eat and fight we cannot take chances, others can get infected,” V. Vachonidhi, secretary of an orphanage run by Arya Samaj, told Reuters.

The two boys, aged six and nine, are now with relatives after leaving the home in the town Kutch, 450 km west of Ahmedabad, where they had lived for four years with about 150 other children.

Staff could not tell Reuters what had happened to their parents or how they had become infected with the HIV virus.

Our failure to confront radical Islam is there for all to see


Finally some one has been got courage from some where to put the whole sorry picture of the British Muslim problem. “Our failure to confront radical Islam” I got many Muslims as my close friends, through school, university and now in the workplace. Only few days we were discussing same problem at one dinner party and I felt disgust and even my Muslims friends felt disgust by understanding that we all are threatened by the ugly face of militant Islam. Thank you, Dennis McShane for providing such a clear and balanced view.

At long last, the debate on Islamism as politics, not Islam as religion, is out in the open. Two weeks ago, Jack Straw might have felt he was taking a risk when publishing his now notorious article on the Muslim veil. However, he was pushing at an open door. From across the political spectrum there is now common consent that the old multicultural emperor, before whom generation of politicians have made obeisance, is now a pitiful, naked sight.

The 10,000 Muslims in my constituency of Rotherham can only benefit from removing the dead hand of ideological Islamism – allowing their faith to be respected and their children to flourish in a Britain that finally wakes up to what must be done. Despite the efforts of extremists to prevent any sort of rational debate about the place of Islam in Britain, it is at last happening.

A fight-back is beginning to reclaim Britain from the grip of those who refuse to acknowledge the centrality of British values of tolerance, fair play and parliamentary democratic freedoms – notably those of free speech and respect for all religions, but supremacy for none. Voltaire noted this attribute of the English three centuries ago, when he wrote: “If there was just one religion in Britain there would be despotism. If two, there would be civil war. But as there are 30, they all live at peace with each other.”

India tightens data protection law


As I said in my earlier post [Indian Call Centre:Boom or Doom:Concern Over Showing Cracks] Data security has become the top risk concern for many UK and US companies that are considering outsourcing operations. To keep our BPO industry government should bring strict laws for BPO industry and for BPO employees. We need to act on this and fast, as time is running out and world is watching us. Glad to see that Indian government finally made amendments in Information Technology Act (2000) rules. Under the new law, fines of over US$1 million can be imposed on companies and individuals who fail to stop data theft and the leakage of personal information.

MUMBAI – Responding to a string of embarrassing sting operations exposing data theft in the Indian business process outsourcing (BPO) industry, the government this week approved amendments to the Information Technology Act (2000) aimed at making life more difficult for IT criminals.
