The veteran Uttarakhand movement activist Baba Mathura Prasad Bamrara is no more. It’s really a very sad, shocking and disheartening news and an end of a protracted chapter of relentless struggle. I personally knew Baba Mathura Prasad Bamrada who breathed his last today.

He was a relentless fighter who was imprisoned number of times in separate Uttarakhand movement. In 1978 under the leadership of then MP from Tehri Garhwal, late Trepan Singh Negi Mathura Prasad Bamrara voluntrily courted arrest at Boat Club while forcibly marchig towards parliament and was in Tihar Jail for ten days.

Since then he was involved in every struggle and movement of separate Uttarakhand state having dedicated his entire life for this noble cause. Mathura Prasad Bamrara in actual sense was a symbol of struggle who dedicated his entire life for Uttarakhand and its problems at the expense of his family who suffered tremendously, financially and otherwise. During the separate Uttarakhand phase during the nineties too till the formation of the separate state he was fully involved in the struggle to achieve separate Uttarakhand state.

His entire family was in financial jeopardy during his entire phase of struggle. In addition to this sordid story, what is more shocking and anguishing is the fact that the successive governments that ruled Uttarakhand during the last 18 years provided no financial assistence to him or his financially shattered family, not also for his basic treatment of various ailments he was suffering from.

The tragedy of the whole episode is that he was constrained to sit on hunger strike during the previous Congress chief minister Harish Rawat’s tenure to include him as a recognized ANNDOLANKARI officially and provide employment to his son. He even held several press conferences with the help of his well wishers to draw the attentiontowards his genuine plight but of no awail. Baba Bamrara’s old age phase was extremely challenging carrying so many ailments with no facility for privileged government treatment.

After suffering so much despite his lifelong relentless struggle neither was he declared an official Uttarakhand andolankari, nor his son got employment in any of the government department and he finally met a sad end today. Sounds really bad for a veteran movement activist to meet such a sad end. Om Shanti. May God give peace to the departed soul and sufficient strength to the bereaved family tobear this most irrepetable loss.


No one can deny that there is no hindu terror says Kamal Hassan in one of his column
The TV channels are abuzz with one more TRP enhancing story pertaining to a comment of Bollywood veteran actor Kamal Haasan in one of his regular columns’ of a Southern periodical mentioning that ,”no one can deny that there is no hindu terror,” inviting number of heated and angry protests from the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party asking the actor to seek public apology for his highly objectionable remarks in his regular column castigating serious aspersion on Hindu community without any credible evidence in support of his derogatory statement.

The former Janata Party (S) president Subramanium Swamy who’s now in BJP and himself a knowledgeable man on law apart from being a professor as well, Subramaniam lashed out at the actor trying to become a politician, Kamal Hasan, calling him a pompuous idiot with no logics while giving bite to one of the television channels.

Extremely furious and angry over the actor’s anti hindu remarks the fire brand leader who’s popularly known as the Nehru Gandhi family’s ardent opponent having filed a case of alleged misappropriation of funds of National Herald against Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Subramaniam Swamy accused Kamal Hasan as a man without morality and ethics whether they are the financial or personal morals and demanded that NIA should step in to investigate him for his baseless, concoted and fabricated charges against Hindu community. Subramanium Swamy sad he has no thought in his head.

The actor is a morally corrupt person, and is without personal or financial morals. Selfish motives are always a driving force for him added Swamy. Swamy expressed the concern that the hindu population is decreasing every year and said that it would be better if Kamal Hasan converts himself to a Muslim.

He was replying to the reporter of Times Now channel after being asked to give his reaction to the actor’s anti hindu remarks in one of his newspaper columns. It may be recalled that the prominent celluloid actor of the South and Hindi films Kamal Hasan has been in the front page news recently when he met AAP CHIEF and Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival and discussed possibilities of his entry in active politics but showed his primary interest in joining Super star Rajnikant’s party in case he forms his new political formulation in the South.

It is however not clear as to in what context the actor has expressed this view point in his newspaper column as I have not gone through it till the time of writing this news item.
