photo by Bhupendra Rana Top News Residents of Kapurai — a neighbourhood in Vadodara where about 300 displaced families mostly Muslims are supposed to be relocated following the demolition of their homes in Suleiman Chawl — have written to the Vadodara Municipal Corporation protesting against the move The letter states that allowing Muslims to move into the locality will “hamper the peace-loving nature here” as their “daily activity involves assaulting and abusing” Kapurai is located about a kilometre from Hanuman Tekri where the Best Bakery outlet run by a Muslim family was set ablaze during the 2002 Gujarat riots resulting in 14 deaths As many as 318 clustered homes in Suleiman Chawl were on Tuesday demolished as part of the VMC’s ‘Slum Free Vadodara’ drive On Monday the civic body had conducted a draw of lots to choose homes for 218 families who would be relocated under the Basic Services for Urban Poor (BSUP) housing scheme The documents of the rest of the families are being verified Share This Article Related Article Upset at their homes being demolished some residents had on Tuesday set on fire a police chowki a city bus and 10 two-wheelers The arson lasted for a couple of hours until police used force to disperse the crowd On Wednesday residents of Kapurai met VMC standing committee chairperson Dr Jigesha Sheth to hand over a memorandum opposing the relocation The memorandum signed by “residents of Dabhoi road and Soma Talav” states that “the Best Bakery incident that occurred in the past is known world over It has caused a lot of pain to residents of Dabhoi Road some of whom continue to suffer that pain” The letter addressed to VMC commissioner H S Patel and Mayor Bharat Dangar goes on to state: “The VMC has demolished the illegal Suleiman Chawl that had become a headache for 40 years It is a matter of joy for the eastern part of the city However we oppose the VMC’s decision to relocate the Muslim families of Suleiman Chawl to alternate accommodation under the BSUP housing scheme on Dabhoi Road (Kapurai) which has developed as a luxurious area in the last seven years Allotting homes to Muslim families from Suleiman Chawl in this area will hamper the peace-loving nature here” The memorandum states that it is a “known fact” that people whose “daily activity involves assaulting and abusing do not change their anti-social mindset” It says that relocating the families would lead to “riots assaults criminal incidents hampering the social order in the area” “Fourteen years ago when talks were held for demolishing Suleiman Chawl the residents were to be rehabilitated in areas of Tandalja and Ekta Nagar (both Muslim-dominated areas) so it is surprising that they have been allotted homes under the BSUP scheme at Kapurai which is still incomplete We are worried about the future and we demand that the allotment of homes to Muslim families in Kapurai be cancelled and they be moved to areas inhabited by their own community” Sheth who was handed the letter Wednesday said there had been a “mistake” while planning the relocation “It is a sensitive situation We can either resolve it through dialogue or by taking tough decisions The truth is that there has been a mistake many years ago while planning this relocation Knowing well that there could be opposition of communities dominating a particular locality the VMC should have planned housing schemes in certain areas for each community” Sheth said “Residents of the societies around the BSUP schemes met me today and expressed their concern I am waiting for the Mayor to return to the city so we can come up with a solution The biggest challenge is to change the mindset of people” she said Amid protests from locals police were posted at Kapurai to prevent any untoward incident as Muslim families tried to move into their new homes on Tuesday evening Unable to shift into their new homes owing to the hostility the families held another protest at Suleiman Chawl on Wednesday A Muslim resident of Suleiman Chawl said they were ready to shift into their homes in Kapurai but not with the ongoing opposition The father of two who did not wish to be identified said “We are all poor and have our livelihood in this area The women work as domestic helps mostly in Hindu homes here I do not understand the opposition” The civic body had encountered a similar situation last year when residents of Sayajipura JNNURM protested against letting 481 families displaced from their Kalyannagar homes move into the locality Eventually a decision was taken to build new homes for the families at Kalyannagar itself For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Manuraj Shunmugasundaram | Updated: November 22 2016 12:17 am Few of those who made significant contributions to the Dravidian movement Top News On November 20 1916 Sir P Theagaraya Chetty presided over a meeting at the Victoria Memorial Hall in Madras It was the coming together of the Madras Presidency’s leading non-Brahmin traders lawyers doctors landowners and politicians That moment is considered by most historians to be the birth of the Dravidian movement which set the agenda for the next 100 years of politics in Tamil Nadu and led the way for the mobilisation of marginalised peoples across the country The over-representation of Brahmins in the British Raj bureaucracy as established by the census results led to discontent amongst the lower castes The November 1916 gathering was the first congregation of the backward classes to affirm their political power On that day the South Indian Liberal Federation later known as the Justice Party was founded The elections to the Madras Presidency under the new dyarchy system in 1920 saw the Justice Party win a comfortable majority In 1921 the Justice Party government passed the Communal Government Order No 613 to legislate reservations for various communities in government jobs a first for any elected government in the country Soon after the Justice Party government amended the Government of India Act 1919 to enable India’s woman legislator — Muthulakshmi Reddy — to be elected to the Madras Presidency In order to curb caste-based discrimination under the guise of religion Hindu temples were brought under the control of the state government through another legislation The first Justice Party government thus made some of the longest strides in the empowerment of oppressed people In a parallel setting Periyar EV Ramasamy was ploughing a separate but equally determined battle against oppressive forces He led the Vaikom struggle for lower caste Hindus to use the street adjacent to a Siva temple in the then princely state of Travancore in 1925 an act whose success reverberated across India The Self Respect Movement he founded was radical in its thinking and action Periyar advocated inter-caste (or as he called them “casteless”) marriage women’s education property rights for women and widow remarriage in a language that was both fiery and candid The imposition of Hindi by the Madras Presidency government in 1937 brought the Justice Party and the Self Respect Movement together in opposition In December 1938 Periyaralready a popular leader became the president of the Justice Party At the 16th Conference of the Justice Party held on August 21 1944 in Salem it was renamed Dravidar Kazhagam to include all the linguistic peoples of Southern India assert their ethnic identity and also to launch the demand for a separate Dravida Nadu While the Dravidar Kazhagam was a potent force for social change a splinter group led by CN Annadurai aspired to get involved directly with the politics of the newly-independent country In 1949 the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam was formed with the objective of converting social reforms into administrative action Since 1967 when the DMK formed a government in Tamil Nadu the social reform agenda has been at the heart of the state’s governance Self respect marriages that shunned caste and religious customs were legalised by the DMK in 1967 Madras became Tamil Nadu in 1969 Women were given equal succession rights in 1989 Inter-caste housing communities (samathuvapurams) were created by the state in 1998 Legislation to tear down caste barriers within priesthood was passed in 2006 Mid-day meals maternity benefits and women self-help groups can all be traced back to the early policy platforms of the Dravidian movement Today in its centenary year there is much to be thankful for the Dravidian Movement Tamil Nadu continues to be ranked among the best states in the country in human development indicators However the next 100 years of the Dravidian Movement will witness bigger challenges in the form of caste and “honour”-based crimes religious bigotry and social disparities that have shown a resurgence in recent times The future of the Dravidian Movement lies in how its present-day successors find common cause in a society where identities have begun to trump ideologies Still the Dravidian movement must be celebrated for being the first backward class mobilisation in the country which has created

Centre and the panel for damaging Yamuna floodplains by allowing his NGO’s cultural extravaganza held there “Notice to the respondent” a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said while seeking his reply before May 9 the next date of hearing However Art of Living (AOL) spokesperson and legal adviser Kedar Desai said “No such order has been passed It is factually incorrect to report that any notice has been issued The matter has been simply adjourned to May 9” Desai’s stand was contradicted by petitioner’s counsel Rahul Choudhary who said the bench has issued notice to the AOL founder and sought his reply by May 9 During the hearing the bench also pulled up petitioner Manoj Misra over his plea asking him “how this has come in the press before coming to us” Misra has sought action against Ravi Shankar alleging that his remarks on social media had interfered with free and fair dispensation of justice AOL’s World Cultural Festival was held on the Yamuna floodplains from March 11-13 2016 to celebrate 35 years of its service In a statement published on the AOL’s website Ravi Shankar had blamed the government and the NGT for permitting AOL to hold the function and said his foundation had obtained all necessary permissions including from the green panel and the event could have been stopped in the beginning itself if the river was so “fragile and pure” In a Facebook post Ravi Shankar had said “If at all any fine has to be levied it should be levied on the Central and state governments and the NGT itself for giving the permission If the Yamuna was so fragile and pure they should have stopped the World Culture Festival” In the plea filed through advocates Ritwick Dutta and Rahul Choudhary Misra had said the AOL head’s statements “denigrated the dignity and status of this tribunal which was an interference in the fair dispensation of justice” He had asked NGT to take appropriate action against Ravi Shankar for making the statements which “on the face of it scandalises/tends to scandalise and interferes/tends to interfere with the free and fair dispensation of justice by the apex green tribunal” The NGT had earlier termed as “shocking” the charge levelled by Ravi Shankar and the AOL against the government and the green panel for the damage to the Yamuna floodplains saying they had “no sense of responsibility” An expert committee had told the NGT that a whopping Rs 4202 crore would be required to restore the floodplains which was ravaged due to the cultural extravaganza last year The expert panel had suggested that there would be two components of rehabilitation plan — physical and biological which would cost Rs 2873 crore and Rs l329 crore respectively besides additional ancillary expenses The AOL had alleged that the findings of the panel were “biased” and made allegations against Prof C R Babu a member of the expert panel which had quantified the damage to the floodplains “The Art of Living is a responsible and environment-sensitive NGO We have never caused any damage to the environment but have in fact worked for preserving and reviving it through various environment-related projects over the years” it had
