September 16 2017 2:55 am A cattleshed near Dahisar river (Express Photo by Amit Chakravarty) Top News Following protests by residents of Borivali and social activists Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s R central ward (Borivali) initiated action against illegal tabelas (cattle sheds) on Friday The Medical Officer of Health (MOH) of R central ward seized three buffaloes from one of the cattle sheds although residents felt the action was not enough As the cattle impounding vehicle could not carry more than three animals only three buffaloes were seized although officials vowed to continue the action against illegal cowsheds Residents of Srikrishna complex along with members of the group River March have been complaining against cattle sheds along the Western Express Highway (WEH) for dumping cattle waste and carcasses into Dahisar river The BMC action so far had been confined to putting up a mesh on the outlet through which the cattle owners dumped waste Friday’s action irked residents waiting for the civic body to penalise or remove illegal tabelas altogether “Initially we got to know that they will demolish the tabelas and seize the animals However later we were told that there is a stay against demolition of tabelas but the animals can be seized If that was so why did the BMC officials not come prepared They should have got bigger vehicle or more vehicles” said Gopal Jhaveri an environmentalist and a member of River March Jhaveri added: “The licences of these tabelas expired in 2005 They have not renewed their licences and are hence operating illegally and continue to openly pollute the river by dumping carcasses and cow dung The BMC should have acted seriously” On July 20 residents of Srikrishna Complex a housing society with over 250 families located near the 18 cowsheds and the Dahisar river found two carcasses in the river and reported it to the disaster management cell Following a demand from residents R central ward officials registered a police complaint against the cowshed owners However neither were the cowshed owners penalised by the BMC nor was any action initiated by the police Two days after the incident the BMC fixed a mesh on the tunnel to block cattle dung and carcasses being dumped by cowshed owners However within a week the mesh was reportedly stolen The residents are now demanding that all animals be seized and shifted Assistant Commissioner of R central Atul Rao said they were planning to seize more animals but due to the small vehicle available on Friday they could seize only three “This is not a final action It has just been initiated and will continue We have taken action against them for violating BMC norms We have assured residents that we will not allow tabela owners to create more nuisance” Rao said For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Inder Malhotra | Published: December 14 2015 12:09 am File photo of Salman Rushdie Top News Normally it is the relentless war of words between the ruling BJP and the Congress which remains the main Opposition party despite its tally in the Lok Sabha having plummeted from over 410 in 1984 to a mere 44 last year that requires the recollection of some distant event highly important in its time but now faded in people’s memory But this time around the same situation has arisen not from the remarks of one of the votaries of hard Hindutva but from those of a liberal and moderate Congress leader former finance minister P Chidambaram At a conference more academic than political in reply to a question he said to ban Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses was “wrong” and that if the question were put to him 20 years ago his answer would have been the same This is unusual candour so rare alas in Indian polity these days Around the time Rushdie’s book was published Rajiv Gandhi was being inundated with strong representations from Muslim leaders of all parties including the Congress protesting against horrendous anti-Muslim riots in Meerut Hashimpura and adjoining areas in UP During these not only were the killings heavy but also some victims were blinded The highly provocative movement for the construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya had aggravated the situation It was in this grave atmosphere that a note informing him that since Satanic Verses was not published in India several applications for the import of Rushdie’s book also landed on the prime minister’s desk He called in his information adviser G Parthasarathy who advised that the matter should be referred to the Union home ministry that was responsible for what is officially always called “law and order” despite Nehru’s repeated suggestion that the phrase “peace and tranquility” would be better A couple of days later the PM heard on Doordarshan that the import of Satanic Verses had been banned Parthasarathy’s RAX phone rang and he found that the call was from the PM asking him whether he had seen the news on Doordarshan and if so how the ban order was announced The answer was available immediately CG Somiah then a highly-spoken-of home secretary explained that under the government’s rules of business it was his duty to deal with every major problem concerning law and order On reading Rushdie’s book in its entirety he added he came to the conclusion that to allow it to be circulated in India in the existing law and order situation would be not only wrong but also dangerous The home ministry issued the necessary orders Rajiv evidently thought that this was the end of the matter He soon learnt that it was the beginning of a big row After the announcement of the ban Rajiv again got many letters on the subject These were a mixed bag If some were totally opposed to banning books some others endorsed the ban and said it was necessary and timely There was one rather special communication: A personal email from Salman Rushdie to Rajiv Gandhi To this no reply was sent nor was it acknowledged It was simply “filed” according to the government’s established procedure Rushdie considered this as Rajiv adding insult to injury So he addressed a press conference in London at which he used his command on the language to condemning India and Rajiv Gandhi in blazing terms BBC World Service especially its Persian unit gave the event elaborate coverage Almost instantly the supreme leader of Iran Imam Khomeini issued a fatwa that Rushdie deserved death and whoever would kill him would get a generous reward By now Rushdie and his book had become a major international issue Ironically two groups though totally opposed to each other united to blame India: The advocates of freedom of expression for the ban on Rushdie’s book and Islamic extremists for not condemning the contents of Satanic Verses as blasphemous Rajiv was flying across UP concerned over what had happened with the state chief minister Vir Bahadur Singh in tow when the foreign office conveyed to him through his information adviser (IA) also on board that writings in the Saudi press (on the anti-Muslim riots) had become virulent After listening to the message he told the IA to go and repeat it to the chief minister Vir Bahadur Singh’s reply crude and casual was repeated to the PM verbatim He said nothing but within months the chief minister was sacked On a personal note I must report that in February 1989 I was invited by Canada’s Lal Bahadur Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute to deliver six lectures at various universities on Nehru during the year-long celebration of his birth centenary At every place there were as many questions about Rushdie and his book as about “Panditji” My answer everywhere was that I was opposed to book banning but there were compulsions for India to proscribe Satanic Verses However I strongly regretted Imam Khomeini’s fatwa against Rushdie At London Ontario however as soon as I repeated this a burly and articulate Canadian Sikh rose and declared: “Sir if anyone writes or says anything insulting about my religious gurus or my Holy Book I would go and slaughter him and would not accept a penny as a reward” The writer is a Delhi-based political commentator For
