    'We thought we were legally Indian'
    [​IMG]
    A resident holds documents on his way to check his name on the final list of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Kuranibori village, in Assam's Morigoan district on July 30, 2018.
    Some families say they were left off the draft list while their relatives were included.
    Sanjay Sammanit, a private tutor in Dumuria village in Assam, said his wife was the only one of his family on last year's list. His parents, two older brothers, a younger brother and his daughter were left off.
    His family has been in Assam since 1964, when his grandfather came to the state from Bangladesh, he says. "We thought we were legally Indian," he said in a phone interview.
    "We were stressed because we received a notice saying that we had not submitted some of the legal documents required," he said. He is hopeful this time round, but worries about poorer families who will struggle to navigate the appeals process.
    "Despite having documents, poor people have been made to go through so much. Many people in the villages are illiterate, they have to go to other people to fill up forms," said Chandan Dey, a 48-year-old shopkeeper from Dumuria, in Baksa district.
    "There's lot of financial cost incurred and the places where the hearings take place can be some 50 to 150 kilometers away so you have to hire a car. People are suffering," he added.
    Many like Dey say they have had trouble proving their citizenship to officials in numerous appeals hearings, despite having the required documents. He and nine other family members were left off the draft list.

    "The same things are repeated again and again. We have submitted the same set of documents and they ask if we have any more. Had there been anything else, we would have brought it," he said. "We are old now. My father is on his deathbed. We are four or five generations in but still we might be foreigners? Is that logical?"
    Munoth, the lawyer, said most exclusions from the NRC were happening because people didn't have the documentation.
    "It's just unthinkable. If I was asked to prove my citizenship, I would be at pains to find a document that says my ancestors came to India before 1947 and this is me with my class and caste privilege and education. You can only imagine what a daily wage laborer would go through," she said.
    CNN reached out to government officials in New Delhi and Assam to talk about problems with the process but has not received comment.
    Immigration and Hindu nationalism
    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's political opponents claim the exercise, which predated his administration by decades, is discriminatory against religious minorities.
    The principal opposition Congress party said last year that it wasn't enough to allow people left off the list to file appeals. It called on Modi and his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to ensure that the process is fair -- and that it doesn't discriminate against people based on their religion, a concern voiced by many given Assam's multi-ethnic make-up.
    Nazrul Islam, a 28-year-old Muslim from Assam's Baksa district, said he feels the NRC has been drawn on religious lines. He said around 40% of families in his Muslim-majority neighborhood were left off the draft list. "Our whole community is under extreme mental pressure," he said, adding that he feels his religion "has been targeted."
    The registry comes amid mounting anger over illegal migration into Assam, which shares a porous border with Bangladesh. Just under two thirds of the far flung state's population is Hindu with a third being Muslim and the rest mainly Christian.
    Long-standing tensions between Assam's indigenous people and the minority migrant Muslim settlers have erupted in clashes. In the biggest eruption in 1983, hundreds of people were killed in Assam by mobs intent on driving out Muslim immigrants.
    [​IMG]
    Assam is the only state in India to have a citizenship register. Villagers in Assam stand in line to check their names on the first draft of NRC in 2018.
    The decision to impose a state-wide register of citizens has drawn parallels with Myanmar's Rakhine State, where Rohingya Muslims -- some of whom can trace their ancestry back to Bangladesh -- have long faced persecution. In 2017, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya were forced across the border into Bangladesh as part of a targeted campaign of ethnic cleansing labeled by the UN as genocidal.
    Tensions over citizenship have been brewing for decades in Assam, but became an election issue for the ruling BJP earlier this year. The party's president Amit Shah sparked outrage when he promised to rid the country of all "infiltrators" in an apparent swipe at undocumented Muslim migrants.
    "We will remove every single infiltrator from the country, except Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs," Shah told supporters in West Bengal, which also borders Bangladesh, during a campaign in April. He promised to do so by implementing the National Registry of Citizens nationwide.
    In addition to the NRC, a controversial India-wide Citizenship Amendment Bill introduced in 2016 would offer Indian citizenship to Hindus and other non-Muslim migrants from neighboring Muslim-majority countries of Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The BJP said it helped religious minorities fleeing persecution, but the bill's opponents insist it is anti-Muslim. It was passed in the lower house in January but failed in the upper house.
    A Hindu nationalist party, the BJP has long faced accusations of anti-Muslim rhetoric, and many of the party's followers see India as a country only for Hindus -- even with its population of more than 170 million Indian Muslims.
    "(The NRC is) definitely buying into what the BJP said they would do when they came into power," said Munoth. "We've had leaders come out saying it will be followed in other parts of India. In fact, we have spoken to people who say that in Muslim areas, even in Delhi, the rumors are so strong that this is going to happen, that people have started collecting documents, that Muslims are living under the fear of when this will happen in their state."

    Indian Health Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey is working on cow urine to prepare medicines

    He also claimed that a former PM of the country used to consume cow urine

    India’s Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Choubey, on Sunday said that the country is seriously working on using cow urine for preparation of medicines and to cure cancer. This sent Indian Twitter users in a frenzy. Additionally, he claimed on Sunday, that one of the country’s ex-Prime Ministers used to consume cow urine too as alternative medicine (discussed later).


    Cure for cancer?
    "Cow urine is powerful in its own. It is considered unique and it has a quality to treat various health issues. The Ayush (Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy) Ministry is also working on using cow urine for preparing medicines and for treatment of cancer. Discussions and efforts are on how to make medicines for cancer," Choubey was quoted as saying in a report by Indian TV news channel, NDTV.

    "Cow urine is used in the preparation of several types of medicines. It is used even for the treatment of incurable disease like cancer. The urine of the indigenous variety of cow is often used. The Ministry of AYUSH is seriously working on it," he added.


    The Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) deals with alternative medicine.

    Choubey also said that the government is working on the protection and conservation of cows for this purpose.

    He also said that the government of India has set a goal to minimize diseases like diabetes and cancer. “Non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cancer are a challenge all over the world. We cannot claim to eliminate the diseases completely but we can control it and for it, the government of India has set a deadline 2030 under a sustainable development goal,” he said. He added that the Health Ministry is studying a proposal to include cancer treatment under the national health protection scheme, Jana Arogya Yojana (JAY) started in 2018 by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    Netizens react
    Social media users were left confused over Choubey’s announcement.

    Referring to India’s second lunar space mission Chandrayaan-2, tweep @enelayy: “Yesterday our scientists nearly put a vehicle on the moon. Today Union Minister of State for Health Ashwini Choubey says that the government is working on using cow urine as a cure for cancer.”


    And, Twitter user @TweetOfCrow called it an act of “ignorance”: “According to Ashwini Choubey, cow urine can cure diseases like cancer. It seems that cow urine cannot cure ignorance.”

    @RiyazSharief4 questioned the benefits of using cow urine in medicine: “Urine is the waste that comes out of the body of every living being by waste nothing can be cured. What a foolish statement by Ashwini Choubey, Minister of State for Health...”

    Cow urine in Ayurveda

    Gomutra or Cow urine apparently has a long history of therapeutic use in India. The tradition has been practiced for more than 5000 years as per Ayurveda (a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent). Over the years, several Hindu believers have proposed that drinking cow urine has divine benefits and having it early morning empty stomach can actually cure a lot of ailments. In 2014, there were some people who attested that ‘gaumutra’ had cured people who suffered from diabetes, tumours, tuberculosis, stomach problems, and even cancer. These claims were backed by spiritual leaders, which resulted in more people crediting this information. According to Dr. Aseem, an Oncologist at Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Hospital & Research Centre in Rajasthan: "It's a misconception among people that cow urine can cure cancer and this must be stopped. In spite of the miraculous properties, there has been no such medical proof that cow urine can cure any kind of cancer." According to an article on timesofindia.indiatimes.com Dr Aseem said: " It is only possible [to cure breast cancer] in the early stages and that too with modern medical technologies. After the early stage, it is not possible to cure cancer."


    Other than India, cow urine has also been used in folk medicine in Myanmar and Nigeria. While cow urine and cow dung has benefits as fertilizers, researchers debunk any other claim of curing diseases and consider it pseudo-science.


    Scientific studies

    A 1975 Nigerian study on mice found that cow urine causes death in high doses. A similar 1976 study on dogs showed that repeated administration of cow urine concoction as used in Nigerian folk medicine, resulted in hypotension(abnormally low blood pressure) and tachypnea(abnormally rapid breathing), and also death.


    ‘Morarji Desai ji himself used to consume cow's urine’

    On September 8, Choubey said: “There is a need to do research on cow urine," adding that former Indian prime minister Morarji Desai used to consume it for medicinal benefits. He said: "We see that many times, people drink urine to cure their disease. Our former prime minister Morarji Desai ji himself used to consume cow's urine.”


    But, did he really?


    Tweep @narulaAlka posted: “Wrong , Morarji Desai consumed his own urine .”


    In 1978, Morarji Desai, then Indian prime minister, spoke at length on a US television interview 'CBS 60 Minutes' about how he practiced ‘Urophagia’ or urine therapy. According to a 2009 Times of India article, during his visit to the US, he spoke to American Journalist, Dan Rather stating that drinking urine is the perfect medical treatment for those who cannot afford medical treatment.


    He claimed drinking his own urine cured his piles. He also believed that if an individual washes eyes with urine, the person can never get cataract.



    In the past, another BJP leader, ‘Sadhvi’ Pragya Thakur has advocated for the use of cow urine as medicine. She claimed that she was a cancer patient and was cured after she consumed medicine that contained cow urine.

    Other claimed uses

    In 1945, John W. Armstrong, a British naturopath, published a popular book about the alleged curative power of drinking one’s own urine. The book, “The Water of Life: A Treatise on Urine Therapy,” claims that urine can cure all major illnesses.


    Other claims about urine therapy are anecdotal or stem from ancient texts. Claims have been made that drinking urine may treat allergies, acne, cancer, heart problems, infections, wounds, stuffy nose, rash, stings and other skin ailments


    However, there’s no scientific evidence to support any of these claims.


    Is it safe?

    Those who practice Urophagia may not agree, but, many scientists who have researched on the aspect claim that drinking a small amount of urine, at your own risk, is not much harmful. But there are certain risks associated with it including bacterial contamination, potential drug exposure and high mineral content in it can put stress on kidneys. Scientists, however, advise to avoid drinking urine when you are dehydrated and there is no water around as it may relieve the sensation of thirst but the sodium and minerals in it may make you more dehydrated. In a worst case scenario, individuals can use urine as a source of water by distilling it.


    A 2018 BBC Three article talking about the health fad reported: “For one thing, urine is essentially a waste product - meaning it’s made up of a mix of water and stuff your body has already worked hard to get rid of. ‘It is a common belief that urine is sterile - which it normally is if you don't have a problem with your renal tract,’ Dr Zubair Ahmed tells BBC Three. ‘However, once it leaves the body, it can be contaminated with certain bacteria - and ingesting this bacteria can make you feel unwell and can lead to serious complications’.”


    Infection risks aside, Dr Ahmed adds there’s actually no medical evidence to show urophagia benefits your health in any way. “Urination is one way where our body gets rid of toxic by-products,” he explained. “There is no evidence at all that ingesting these substances has any health benefits. While drinking a small amount of urine is unlikely to be hazardous to your health, there is not enough modern evidence of its efficacy to suggest drinking it is healthy.”


    And Dr Andrew Thornber warned that you risk reintroducing dangerous waste products - such as potassium and nitrogen, back into your system when you drink pee. It can be really harsh on your gut and cause problems with your kidneys. “When you drink urine, it will eventually come back out again and be much more concentrated, which could lead to gut problems.” Dr Thornber added, speaking to BBC Three .


    And nutritionist Keri Filtness added: “Some of the waste products excreted via urine, such as nitrogen, sodium and other minerals, may cause issues such as dehydration if they are consumed excessively.”

    World’s worst bad-loan mess set to worsen on India’s cash crunch
    A cash crunch in shadow-banking sector is challenging banks as they seek to tidy up their balance sheets.

    Bolstering the pace of resolutions is crucial for Modi.
    By Rahul Satija and P R Sanjai

    A prolonged shadow-banking crisis and hurdles in bankruptcy rules are set to keep India atop the world’s worst bad-debt pile, even as Italy, which held the title previously, quickens the clean-up of its lenders.

    Moody’s Investors Service to Credit Suisse Group AG. warned that more loans may sour in the Asian nation’s banking system. More than 2.4% of total loans in India’s banking system may be under stress on top of the 9.6% bad debt ratio as of June, the highest among major economies, Credit Suisse estimates shows. Italy, on the other hand, has nearly halved its ratio to 8.5% in the last three years.

    The failure to slash stressed assets is undermining India’s efforts to revive economic growth that has cooled to a six-year low. A cash crunch in the shadow-banking sector that started with the collapse of IL&FS Group last year and the delays in the bankruptcy process are adding to the challenges faced by banks as they seek to tidy up their balance sheets.

    [​IMG]


    “When the economy decelerates like this we will see non-performing loans go up,” said Saurabh Mukherjea, founder of investment advisory firm Marcellus Investment Managers Ltd. “You’ll see more bad loans come through as we approach the first anniversary of IL&FS meltdown.”

    Of the nation’s 12 largest delinquent borrowers which Reserve Bank of India asked lenders to push to bankruptcy in 2017, only six have been resolved so far, data compiled by Bloomberg shows. The delays highlight impediments to the process including conflicting regulations and lack of resolution infrastructure, which is derailing a 270-day resolution deadline set by the insolvency law.

    Bolstering the pace of resolutions is crucial for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts to spur fresh credit and jump-start the $2.7 trillion economy after growth slumped to 5% in the quarter through June. India has announced a slew of measures including merging weak state-run banks with stronger ones in recent weeks to reverse the economic slowdown and avoid a surge in bad loans.

    Meanwhile, Italian banks including Banco BPM SpA., Unicredit SpA and Intesa Sanpaolo have cut the amount of toxic debt on their balance sheets by almost half from a peak of 341 billion euros in 2015, data compiled by PricewaterhouseCoopers shows.

    “Delays in the bankruptcy process, changes in stressed asset rules and a slowing economy are hindering India’s cleanup efforts,” said Mathew Antony, managing partner of Aditya Consulting, an advisory firm that’s working with bankrupt companies. “Unlike in Italy, banks in India have been reluctant to sell down bad loans at discounts to tidy up the pile.”

    Five Chinese nationals have been arrested in Kolkata on Saturday over charges of smuggling nearly 200 kg of banned narcotic substance.

    A team of Government Railway Police (GRP) from Sealdah caught the five men from the Kolkata (Chitpur) railway station with 197 kilograms of Amphetamine, a banned narcotic drug with an approximate market value of Rs 39 crore. The police team was on a routine vigil at the station area when they spotted the Chinese group.

    All five men belong to the Guangzhou province in China. According to cops, the group had plans to fly out of Kolkata early on Saturday morning. They had bought air tickets for an early morning Cathy Pacific flight to Hong Kong. Their passport entries have revealed that they have been travelling to India at least four times a year since 2016.

    The drug was recovered in the form of tablets packed and hidden inside seven suitcases. Police have also seized eleven smartphones, more than 60 debit and credit cards, five Chinese passports and two Indian sim-cards from the possession of the arrested men.

    The case has been handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) West Bengal. Last week, another Chinese national was arrested from Siliguri in north Bengal with Indian Aadhar card in his possession. Ye Wang, the arrested person, was booked under the Foreigners Act over charges of forgery and cheating."

    Very Shameful.

    Bengal CID finds 5 Chinese made drugs in Murshidabad factory

    The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of West Bengal was surprised to find 1.9kg of amphetamine tablets — a banned party drug — in a closed factory in the district of Murshidabad on July 4 , four days after five Chinese nationals were arrested from Kolkata with almost 200kg of the same narcotic.

    As much as 197kg of amphetamine tablets with a street value of nearly Rs 40 crore were seized from five Chinese nationals arrested around midnight on June 29 from a railway station in Kolkata.

    On July 4, a CID team raided the factory from where they had seized another 1.9kg of amphetamine tablets, which are widely used as a party drug in South East Asia.

    Officials are also looking into whether the 197kg of the tablets were made at the Nawada factory and shifted before the factory was closed a year ago since it didn’t have a certificate from the West Bengal Pollution Control Board.




    The factory is located on 15 bigha (2.61 lakh sq ft) land . It was leased out about four years ago by its owner Boju Sheikh, a member of the Madhupur gram panchayat member.

    “...different Chinese medicines, one syringe pump, one grinding machine” were also found during the raid, according to a CID statement. “Information reveals these Chinese used to stay/visit off and on there.”

    Those arrested at the Kolkata station were identified as Wang Xiao Dong, Xue Yonghui, Li Cheng, Cheng Hao, and Liu Baoxian — all aged between 30 and 37 years. “While Dong could speak English to an extent, the rest can only speak some Chinese provincial language,” CID officers said."

    Very shameful

    Goa's former chief swimming coach Surajit Ganguly, who was arrested on in the national capital for raping and molesting a 15-year-old swimming champion, was brought back to Panaji on Sunday by a police team.

    Surajit Ganguly, who was on the run, was arrested on Friday by a joint team of policemen from Goa and Delhi, and was flown back to the coastal state on a transit remand in the early hours of Sunday.

    "The accused will be produced before a local magistrate today (Sunday), where we will be seeking police custody," a senior police official said.

    The accused swimming coach has been booked at the Mapusa police station in North Goa district, under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Goa Children's Act and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

    The victim has accused Surajit Ganguly, who had served as the chief coach of the Swimming Association of Goa for nearly two and a half years, of molesting her.

    The complaint followed hours after a video of the coach, who has since been banned by the Swimming Federation of India, allegedly molesting the minor girl went viral on social media on Thursday, sparking uproar across the country.

    A complaint was filed by the victim's father with the Kolkata Police, but the case was subsequently transferred to the Goa Police, after the victim revealed that the controversial video was shot in the coastal state.

    A class 4 student of a school in Jharkhand's Dhanbad district was allegedly raped by two school teachers including the vice-principal in the sickroom of the institution, police said on Monday.

    An FIR was registered at Katras police station against the two teachers of the Topchanchhi-based school after the girl accused them of raping her in the sickroom of the institution a month ago, the police said.

    The Dhanbad Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Kishor Kaushal, told reporters on Sunday that the FIR was lodged on Saturday based on the nine-year-old victims complaint and that the "matter is serious.

    "The police are investigating the case from all angles and action will be taken on the basis of medical test report," the SSP said.

    Medical test of the girl was conducted on Sunday at the Patliputra Medical College Hospital, the PMCH Superintendent, Dr H K Singh, said.

    Police recorded the statement of the girl in a local court under section 164 after the FIR was registered, the SSP said.

    The FIR was lodged against the two teachers, including the vice-principal, and school's sickroom nurse, under different sections of the Indian Penal Code and POCSO Act.

    According to the FIR, a month ago the girl had fainted in her classroom.

    A teacher sent her to the sickroom, where the nurse gave her medicine, and she lost consciousness. She was allegedly raped and the vice-principal and the class teacher were allegedly involved in the crime, police said.

    A few days later the girl's family took her to a doctor as she was not well.

    The doctor apprehended something wrongdoing with the girl.

    When asked, the girl narrated her ordeal to her parents on Friday.

    A team of senior police officers questioned the students, teachers and the principal of school.

    The Principal of the school, Tanushree Banerjee, said she was not informed about the alleged incident.

    "I don't believe as sickroom of school remains crowded with students. However, the allegation is serious and the school will cooperate with the police in their investigation," she said.
