Shame on the Gates Foundation for rewarding a fascist

Bill Gates has shamed us all by bestowing award to an unrepentant criminal who masterminded massacre of 2000 Muslims in Gujarat and the on-going daily violence faced by Muslim and Christian minorities in India. Millions of Assamese Muslims have been declared stateless by his fascist government that sees no place for minorities. He has illegally annexed Kashmir violating Indian constitution and ignoring 11 UN resolutions towards allowing the Kashmiris to decide their fate. He is a criminal by any definition and shame on humanity. So, when Bill Gates Foundation honors him it is seen as a reward for fascism and intolerance, bigotry and Hindutva. Shame on Bill Gates and his wife Melinda! You have disappointed us all who wanted to believe that you are a great man, in spite of the unjust way you became a billionaire!

The 74th UNGA highlights the ‘disquiet’ world we live in

By Habib Siddiqui

The 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) opened the past week amid simmering tension in the Middle East over recent attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, which Saudi Arabia and the United States blame on Iran. It also came just days after millions of young activists and their supporters marched in thousands of cities worldwide to demand greater action on climate change.

Amongst the notable absentees this time are Russia’s Putin, Syria’s Assad and Israel’s Netanyahu. For the first time in many years, the annual event was spared of the latter’s lying speeches.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres opened the first day of debate at UNGA, warning the world was in a state of "disquiet". He said, "A great many people fear getting trampled, thwarted or left behind." "Machines take their jobs, traffickers take their dignity, demagogues take their rights, warlords take their lives, fossil fuels take their futures and yet people…

Only Philippines, China vote against UN rights resolution on Rohingya

The report below should not surprise anyone knowing how the two countries, run by Mafia-like bosses with their blood-stained hands, have been responsible for their own mammoth human rights violations by killing thousands and detaining millions of Muslims. Funny that Duterte says he is willing to accept Rohingyas! How can one trust a deceiver!

Dr Mahathir criticised UN for its “deafening silence” on the Rohingya crisis

NEW YORK, Sept 25 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad criticised the United Nations for its “deafening silence” on the Rohingya crisis. “It is clear that the Myanmar government is unwilling to take any action to resolve the crisis. “Therefore, it is left up to us — the international community — to do something about the situation. “For a start, the UN should play its role, taking into account that it was established in hopes of preventing future human-made miseries. Its silence is deafening,” he said during a high-level side event entitled “Rohingya Crisis — A Way Forward” at the 74th United Nations General Assembly here today.
