Finding a jury to give a verdict

It is hard to classify this as a news report. The tone and contents of the report suggest an unabashed endorsement of the view that Operation Green Hunt must stop. This is also the leftist extremist position, which usually finds favour with chindu.

We know how these jurys are constituted: they will be filled with left-lib intellectuals and jhollawallahs. The verdict is determined even before the jury is selected. To see a sample, look at any of those debates on CNN-IBN. They might drop in someone with an alternative view but will make sure that voice is inaudible in the leftist cacaphony. But you pretty much know how the debate is going to be held and what the verdict is going to be.
The Hindu : National : “Stop Operation Green Hunt”
Operation Green Hunt was in the dock at a people's tribunal in the capital over the weekend and the verdict of the jury was loud and clear: Guilty.

The report mentions "activists, academics and experts". That says it all. Anyone can be included in these categories. Too bad all these worthies have now found the glamour of UPA (Congress) peeling out so fast. Till the other day they were all shouting on behalf of mataji.

This was the same band which claimed to 'try' and pass judgment on the World Bank (think Arundhati Roy was on that 'panel of jurists'). Some of the names are relatively famous which should tell us how far this cancer has spread.

Many of these "relatively famous" already conducted their investigation into well-justified post-Godhra retaliation and baying to hang Modi.

In a country where even Supreme Court has become comedy circus, why to take these idiots seriously.

On another point....

The Chindu reports today that an Indian woman has been appointed to the 'male dominated' Board of Trustees of Wikipedia Foundation.

Bishakha Dutta, the new Indian Woman Trustee, was shocked to find out that the Wiki has not a single entry regarding the 'Bilkis Bano Case'. Let us rest assured that Madam Dutta would make this omission good.

Since Wiki is 'male dominated', let us expect them to appoint more women to its Board of Trustees. To find suitable women, they don't have to look elsewhere. India, though a poor country, is rich in nutty women. I would request Wiki to appoint Malini Parthasarathy, Burkha Dutt, Teesta Setelvad and Brinda Karat, also as its Trustees. Their appointment will go a very,very, very long way in strengthening the nutty image of Wikipedia.

Malini P can stay fulltime or even overtime at Wiki! Will be a big relief to the readers of Chindu and of course, to the other governing members of the Chindu family.

kuttchathan,
haha funny stuff on the nominees for the Wiki. Unfortunately if LiC reads this, he might get 'ideas'...
