(d) a grave breach of the Fourth Convention is a breach of that Convention involving an act referred to in article 147 of that Convention committed against persons or property protected by that Convention” According to Article 147 grave breaches among other things include ‘inhuman treatment’ ‘wilfully causing great suffering’ and ‘unlawful confinement of a protected person’ To bind a person to a jeep and parade him over a distance to make an example out of him for deterring stone pelters violates Article 147 and would constitute a grave breach of the Geneva Convention Section 17 of the Geneva Conventions Act which confers upon the government the authority to make a complaint in case of an offence under the Act provides that “[n]o court shall take cognizance of any offence under this Act except on complaint by the Government or of such officer of the Government as the Central Government may by notification in the Official Gazette specify” While the Geneva Conventions Act itself does not define ‘government’ both the Army Act 1950 as well as the Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 provide that ‘words and expressions used but not defined’ therein and defined in the Indian Penal Code 1860 shall be deemed to have the meanings assigned to them in that Code Section 17 of the Indian Penal Code states: “The word Government denotes the Central Government or the Government of a State” It would appear from the statements made by ministers in the Central Government that the Central Government does not intend to investigate these grave breaches of the Geneva Convention; rather it approves of them A complaint by the State Government in this respect would have a salutary effect in ensuring that functionaries are held accountable to the elected authority of the State The Union

the veracity and integrity of the matches dismissing it as cricket’s WWE others have scoffed at the big sums of money doled out to the undeserving Then there are those who’ve undermined the world’s most popular T20 tournament by calling it kitsch entertainment As it brings up its 10th anniversary the IPL hasn’t quite managed to get everyone in the country on its side But even those who love to

Related News When you enter the premises of Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas (SSUN) in West Delhi’s leafy Naraina Vihar it looks like any other bureaucrat establishment The trust was set up in 2007 to further the work of Shiksha Bachao Andolan Samiti (SBAS) a movement to impart ‘morally correct’ teachings to school going children This academic organ was established by Dinanath Batra who functioned as the general secretary of Vidya Bharati the education wing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) back in 1990s SBAS has been responsible for successfully banning Wendy Doniger’s The Hindus: An Alternative History and arm-twisting a publisher to withhold the release of a book on the Gujarat riots titled Communalism and Sexual Violence: Ahmedabad since 1969 It has successfully rallied against scrapping off AK Ramanujan’s essay Three Hundred Ramayanas from Delhi University’s syllabus which offered alternative renditions to the world-known Ramayana story in the past Recently SSUN recommended to the Ministry of Human Resource and Development headed by Prakash Javadekar for the new education policy that is to be formulated soon that the medium of instruction from elementary to higher levels in schools should be the mother tongue Foreign languages should not be offered as an alternative to any Indian language at the school level English should no longer be mandatory at any level and all research works must be linked to “national requirements” and projects that do not meet this condition should not get UGC scholarships In fact the Ministry assured them in a written reply that “suggestions given by you have been noted down They will be discussed during the formation of the new education policy” IndianExpresscommet Atul Kothari the secretary of Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas Kothari has been an invitee member of the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarini (the All India National Council of RSS) He spoke about how SBAS is working to instill nationalism in children at school level why instead of sex education for children they should be taught to contain their ‘super energy’ through sports and why family values are important for all children Excerpts: Since the Shiksha Bachao Samiti Andolan came into being what changes have come about in the educational system We’ve been successful in eradicating certain distortions which exist in the syllabus For instance our freedom fighters were called terrorists In similar vein our religion communal communities caste system – have been depicted in a negative manner We have been successful in amending that At one time when the UPA government was in power it refused to listen to us So we approached the court and through the court’s support we were able to bring about improvements and do away with distortions Could you give some examples of these distortions In Delhi University there was a lesson called Three Hundred Ramayanas which was part of the syllabus for BA Hons In the chapter five different Ramayanas were discussed as examples but the most popular Ramayana was not even included in that The chapter only included the most distorted versions So we rallied a movement opposing it and eventually managed to fix it We approached the court and the decision made by the court was in our favour Could you share a few of the examples that were mentioned in the essay For example one of the stories said that Ravana and his wife Mandodari were not able to have children so they prayed to Lord Shiva In return Shiva gave Mandodari mangoes to eat but Ravana ended up eating all of the mangoes by mistake So Ravana became pregnant instead And then the story goes on to describe the problems he faced the following nine months Afterwards Ravana sneezed and Sita came out of it Another story said that Ram and Laxman called Sita a “fallen woman” Now no matter how Ravana was he would never touch Sita mata Then another story said that Hanuman was a very passionate (kaamukh) god and that when he went to Lanka he would masturbate (kaam-kriya) while watching women and men from a window And the last one said that it wasn’t Ram who killed Ravana but Laxman How can children be taught how to respect women at school level Through the (school) syllabus I’ll give you an example When (Chhatrapati) Shivaji won a battle his senapati offered him the defeated emperor’s daughter as spoils of war Shivaji glared at the senapati and reprimanded him He said “This woman is like my sister Please send her back wherever you’ve brought her from and make sure that she doesn’t have a single scratch on her body” Now if this comes in the syllabus then boys will know how to treat women Taking your example into consideration I would say that we have our goddesses – Saraswati Parvati Kali Everyone is taught since childhood to respect women like we respect our goddesses But that hasn’t changed our situation in India has it All this should therefore be presented in our syllabus in a positive way Children should be taught that everyone is equal And this needs to be taught to them through example not theory Do you think that children should be taught sex education in school What you are calling “sex education” that should generally be given by the family This is the parents’ responsibility This is why sex education is necessary for parents more than it is necessary for students It is the parents who can properly teach their children on this topic The thing is many teachers aren’t mature enough to handle or teach this subject If they don’t have a Science background how can they possibly teach children about this Literature distributed by Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas: “There is no alternative to the mother nation and our mother tongue” Our society is so conservative that sometimes even the parents feel shy talking about the subject In such situations isn’t it important that sex education be taught in school See despite what you say there are more problems regarding this in western countries in comparison to ours Even though sex education is taught over there those countries have more problems than us So we need to find out what is the reason behind the problem that is there What is India’s answer to sex education then It’s like this: weakness in a child’s development leads to such problems These issues begin to emerge when the child’s development is weak or when something is lacking in his/her life –like when he/she doesn’t get enough love (from family) Because of these reasons such thoughts begin to surface So this “super energy” that exists in adolescents should be channelized properly For these reasons they should be given health education; they should do sports and other physical activities In addition there should be a chapter on “How to know your body” – such chapters should be taught to all students not only those who study Science Through this not only will they have a scientific approach for living their life but their “energy” will be used properly; it will be channelized properly Then this “problem” will automatically “reduce” There are several rape incidents occurring in our country Should children be taught about incidents such as the Nirbhaya case Look when the Nirbhaya tragedy happened many said that it should be included in textbooks However do you think any change will come about by only including the incident in the syllabus If you teach children about Nirbhaya they will have several other questions in their minds Their concern should only be on absorbing the correct family values in life Define ‘family values’ Children who belong to small families it seems are more prone to committing suicides Nowadays there are a number of divorce cases We should teach children about the importance and benefits of living in joint families How do you plan to impart ‘family values’ through education Families ought to impart education as well It is up to the family to impart certain knowledge to girls However in school textbooks we can have a section or a chapter on the importance of family values How can young girls gain self-confidence and protect themselves in society We should focus on their personality development and physical fitness – that should be of supreme importance so that no man can look at the girls in a bad way Judo should be taught to girls Women should be free of fear; we should teach them to be fearless How can children be taught love for the nation through education We need to completely change things around Like in mathematics if we include a chapter on (Srinivasa) Ramanujan then the love for one’s nation love for mathematics and love for values will come automatically in a child If we teach them about M Visvesvaraya and his life to those pursuing engineering or teach those who are studying Science about Jagdish Chandra Bose C V Raman and (Dr A P J) Abdul Kalam then the values of such greats will organically be inculcated in the children See we can’t address the topic of building nationalism in children in isolation These are the kind of values that should be mentioned in our textbooks What are your thoughts on certain textbooks that spread false information For instance Tejomay Bharat is a textbook that has been made compulsory in government schools across Gujarat It mentions that stem cell research was first done in India and that it finds a mention in Mahabharata This book whose content advisor is Harshad Shah has been distributed along with books written by Dinanath Batra Is Mr Shah affiliated to SBAS No we have nothing to do with him However if an individual has done some work then we should not immediately push him in a corner and interrogate his work We should take time and give his work some thought first We should question whether there is some truth to what he is saying or not In addition we should ask whether some more work can be done on it Today the world is accepting our research and wisdom If we talk about Sanskrit in India then people called it communalism but it’s okay when NASA is doing research on Sanskrit If we talk about making Sanskrit compulsory in Assam people are outraged However when St James School in London made Sanskrit compulsory then no one said anything So we should not immediately criticise someone’s work or thinking [Shah] hasn’t done or said anything wrong about anyone He must have done his own research and on the basis of that he must have written what he has Therefore we must look at this rationally This kind of criticism is quite dangerous for our country What kinds of efforts are currently carried by SBAS to make schools better Well I traveled around the country for a year and went to schools to see which ones had an exceptional way of working I went to Karnataka Gujarat Madhya Pradesh and many other states In Nagpur for instance school timing is 10 am to 3 pm for teachers For students however the school timing is 7 am to 6 pm In the morning at 7 am a spiritual prayer meeting is held which is held solely by the students Responsibility is left with them and that’s how they learn and develop into responsible people Through such travel and research experiments this kind of model was prepared which now we can replicate anywhere Earlier we used to approach schools now schools approach us #GenderAnd — Rethinking how we cover gender in mainstream media Click here to read about our
