Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With around a quarter of all shares in the FTSE 100 yielding 6% or more at the moment, plus many others offering very reliable dividends in the 4% to 6% range, we’re really spoilt for choice when it comes to seeking income from the UK’s top index.Just as we’re about to enter 2020, here are three exceptionally high yields that I think are worth buying.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…HousingBrexit or no Brexit, I’ve long been a fan of housebuilder shares, and right now I see good buys.The Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) share price is still below it’s highest point of 2015, even though it did get a nice boost from the election result. Fears of a no-deal Brexit have been weighing on housebuilders under the assumption that the economic slump that would almost certainly result would hit demand for new houses.But the company has enjoyed a stunning five years of earnings growth that have brought strong cash generation, and it’s now in a phase of returning some of the folding stuff to shareholders. As a result, including special payments, dividends are forecast to yield around 9.5% this year and next.Looking past Brexit, I think the long-term future for housebuilding in the UK is strong, and the only reason I haven’t bought Taylor Wimpey shares is that I already own Persimmon (on a 9% yield).WeedThe Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) share price is down 40% in two years, as tobacco is increasingly disliked as an investment.But with earnings having been holding up, what that’s done is push the shares’ P/E multiple down to under seven, and the already high dividend yield up to a forecast 11.2%. Saying that, EPS was static last year, and this year there’s no growth on the cards, so the rewards tide might be turning a little.On top of that, Imperial has backed away from its old policy of lifting its dividend by 10% per year and will tie it to earnings instead, so we could even see the dividend falling in the coming years — but there’s plenty of room to still accommodate a big yield.But to me, the pessimism looks seriously overdone and the shares way too low, even considering the risks. I also think the price has been hurt by the market’s shunning of anything risky of late, and I can see investors coming back to Imperial.InsuranceThe insurance business might be cyclical, but I’ve always like it, and I’m happily taking my dividends from Aviva (LSE: AV).With the share price having dropped 17% over two years, you can do better than me by buying today, with forecasts indicating a 7.4% yield. Aviva seems to be more out of favour than the sector in general, but why?In the years following the financial crisis, the focus was on Aviva’s overstretched and weakening balance sheet, and part of the recovery plan was the suspension of the dividend. Back on much sounder financial footing today, Aviva is looking perhaps a bit bloated and lacking direction, and confidence seems to have drifted while the company’s direction is not looking so sharp.But earnings have still been growing, and the forecast dividend is covered 1.9 times by earnings. I see a good dividend buy, with the shares just too cheap. Image source: Getty Images. Enter Your Email Address Alan Oscroft owns shares of Aviva and Persimmon.

ACC gets African Anglican liturgical welcome to Zambia

first_img Submit a Press Release By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Apr 10, 2016 Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Drummers and singers of the Message Choir of St. Veronica’s Anglican Church sing farewell to participants in the Anglican Consultative Council opening Eucharist in the forecourt of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Lusaka, Zambia] Serving the world while modeling love and unity in the imitation of Christ was the overwhelming message of the five-hour Eucharist April 10 that officially opened the Anglican Consultative Council’s 16th meeting.The ACC members began meeting two days earlier but at this Eucharist they were welcomed and celebrated by Anglicans from all around the Church of the Province of Central Africa. An estimated 4,000-5,000 people attended the service in which Zambian President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and Zambia’s first president, Kenneth Kaunda, joined other government officials and citizens of the Anglican province’s four countries.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby watches April 10 as a leader of the Lusaka Anglican Church’s brigades sheathes his sword in preparation for dismissing the service’s color guard near the end of the five-hour Anglican Consultative Council opening Eucharist. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceArchbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who was the preacher, was frequently greeted with shouts and ululations during the service. Welby had the unusual liturgical role of granting permission to a sword-wielding officer of the church’s brigades so that the color guard of flags from the province’s countries and from around the Anglican Communion could enter the worship space. He then received the flags from Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Botswana. Near the end of the service his permission was asked for the guard to depart and, granting it, he then returned the four flags.In between, there was incense and African drums; modern songs and old hymns; brass bands and amplified music. Major dancing broke out many times, including during the peace when Lungu joined in, along with his security detail and a scrum of photographers.Three young girls recited from memory a long poem about the ACC whose refrain was “Love never fails as long as ACC unites the church.”Central Africa Archbishop Albert Chama was the celebrant, and the provincial secretary, Bishop William Mchombo, officiated.Rain had threatened plans to celebrate the Eucharist outside, but dry and partly-cloudy weather prevailed, and the altar remained set up on the portico of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. The congregation gathered under tents set up on the lawns surrounding the church on Cathedral Hill in the Lusaka neighborhood that also includes government agencies and embassies. The alternative plan in case of rain had been to move the massive altar party, ACC members and dignitaries inside the cathedral while the rest of the congregation remained under the tents.During his sermon, Welby said the day’s readings (Deuteronomy 6:6-16, Psalm 1:1-6; Ephesians 4:8-16 and the Great Commission Jesus gives in Matthew 28:16-20) all point to the way Christians should tell the stories of their histories, live their lives in the present and bring others to Christ. In a sermon directed to ACC members, members of the host province and government officials, among others, Welby touched on politics and elections, service to the world and the value of being truthful about one’s history rather than using it to foster continued hate.Recalling that the last thing Jesus does is to send his disciples out into the world and that one of his predecessors, William Temple, said that the church exists for those who are not its members, Welby said, “We show we come from Christ when we go out in humble and joy-filled service.”We are the mature body of Christ that Paul described in the passage from Ephesians when we rejoice in worship and are full of love, when we are not judgmental, when we do not fall into the old church habit of throwing stones at the weak and flattering the proud and the strong,” the archbishop said. “And that is such a hard thing for all of us in the church or in government to do.”“Is our message so full of Christ-tempered hope that we create societies of hope?” he asked.  “Do we have so much of the good news alive in us that we consciously seek to introduce people to Jesus who has filled us with joy and hope?”Welby also pointed to Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s call for people to join the Jesus Movement, saying that when we tell the stories of our individual and communal lives – even if they are stories of hurt and loss – the stories must have Jesus and his reconciling love at the center.That does not mean, the archbishop said, that we will not have “debates and discussions and calls about the need to resist wrong doctrine and calls for unity of the faith, but we will only discern right and wrong when we listen in love.”“We lack righteousness when we suggest power and leadership in church locally or across the globe is for the benefit of the winners only,” he said. “So our history as a church, as it continues to be developed by this ACC, must be God-centered, righteousness-pursuing.”The Rev. Samson Mwanza interpreted the archbishop’s sermon into Chewa, a Bantu language spoken in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.Zambian President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, middle, reviews the Guard of Honor mounted by the Lusaka Anglican Church’s brigades after the Anglican Consultative Council opening Eucharist. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who also reviewed the groups, is over his left shoulder. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceNear the end of the service, President Lungu said that the gathering “is a great honor for us as a nation.”The fact that the ACC gathers archbishops, bishops, clergy and laity from different backgrounds and countries under one roof “reinforces the very character of Christianity as a unifier of humanity,” the president said.Lungu called the ACC meeting “a symbol of unity and love in a world of conflict, divisions and differences” and saying it is also “testimony that despite our different nationalities, we can still coexist.”“If there is one great lesson religion can lend to politics, it is the uniting effect of tolerance as a virtue,” he said.The president recalled that the church has played a “pivotal role” in Zambia’s development during its 51 years of independence. Lungu said he wanted to pay “glowing tribute” to the Anglican Church in Zambia for being a partner during those years.Zambia’s first president, Kenneth Kaunda, 91, foreground, leaves his place of honor at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka April 10 after the Anglican Consultative Council opening Eucharist. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“You have been valuable allies to all successive Zambian governments and we salute you for that and we stand ready to support your works,” Lungu said. “Your partnership with us in education, health and good governance continues to be your Christian witness.”He singled out the Cathedral of the Holy Cross for providing what he called “the much-needed conducive platform and atmosphere” for the work that achieved Zambia’s return to multi-party democracy in 1991. Zambia, he said, has become a model for peace and unity in Africa.After a lunch on the cathedral grounds, the day’s festivities continued with a provincial celebration during which ACC members were briefed about each of the province’s four countries – Botswana, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe – and the life of the Anglican church in each of those places.The 16th meeting of the ACC runs until April 19.ACC backgroundThe ACC is one of the four instruments of communion, the others being the Archbishop of Canterbury (who serves as president of the ACC), the Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops, and the Primates Meeting.Formed in 1969, the ACC includes clergy and lay people, as well as bishops, among its delegates. The membership includes from one to three persons from each of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces. Where there are three members, there is a bishop, a priest and a lay person. Where fewer members are appointed, preference is given to lay membership. The ACC’s constitution is here.The council generally meets every three or four years. The first meeting was held in Limuru, Kenya, in 1971. The ACC last met in late 2012 in Auckland, New Zealand. The ACC has not gathered in Africa since its ninth meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1993.The Episcopal Church is represented by Rosalie Ballentine of the Diocese of the Virgin Islands; House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings of Ohio; and Bishop Ian Douglas of Connecticut.Ongoing ENS coverage of the ACC is here.The House of Deputies News page is also posting stories about the meeting.Tweeting is happening with #ACCLusaka.– The Rev.

Perpignan stay top with bonus point win over Scarlets

first_imgTuesday Jan 25, 2011 Perpignan stay top with bonus point win over Scarlets As we attempt to catch up with some of the better action from the weekend, these highlights are from a powerful Heineken Cup display by Perpignan as they beat Scarlets 37-5 at the Stade Aime Giral on Sunday.There were some lovely tries scored as the Catalans made sure that Scarlets werent in with a chance of making the quarter finals as they scored five tries to one in front of their passionate fans. For the Welsh region, Scarlets Nigel Davies was disappointed to exit Europe like that.“It was in our control but we didn’t play well enough. We turned over too much ball and quality opposition like Perpignan will punish you. We knew coming here we would have to perform at the very top of our ability but we didn’t perform on the day. But overall it was a positive campaign for us.”Their attention will now turn to the Magners League, where they lie second on the table.“We have everything to play for in the Magners and have shown we can be resilient and bounce back after defeat,” Davies added.Perpignan did well to match Leicesters performance, taking maximum points to stay top of the table in Pool 5. They will face Toulon at home, most likely in Barcelona.

The top storey acts as a self-sufficient lookout for when it is in use by a single couple, while downstairs acts as a family extension, with focus placed on play around the pool, spa, barbeque deck and cinema.

The views, planning setbacks, site orientation, prevailing winds and land fall all promoted an Easterly aspect; so we acted accordingly. We then went about making the most of the less than ideal solar orientation of the house by exposing the slab to the North, blocking the Westerly winds and sun, limiting openings to the South/street and controlling the morning sun.

African-American women pilots making history

first_imgBessie ColemanIn the field of aviation, Bessie Coleman was a pioneer. In 1921, she was the first African-American woman to obtain a pilot’s license — an international one — and fly a plane.Coleman was born in 1892 in Atlanta, Texas, to sharecroppers whose parents had been enslaved. She was one of 13 children. The family lived in a one-room cabin. When Coleman was two years old, they moved to Waxahachie, Texas. Several years later, the father, who was also of Native ancestry, left and moved to an Oklahoma reservation to obtain the civil rights that were denied to Blacks and Native peoples in Texas.In 1915, at age 23, Coleman moved to Chicago, where she began listening to and reading stories of World War I pilots. This sparked her interest in aviation. But because of racial and gender discrimination, no flight school in the U.S. would accept her.Coleman moved to France where she completed her flight training and earned her pilot’s license. She also gained further flying experience in Holland and Germany. She specialized in stunt flying and parachute jumps and performed ­aerial tricks.Coleman bought an old plane, and while on a trial flight with the mechanic pilot, the plane dived and Coleman fell out of the cockpit before it crashed. She died April 30, 1926, at age 34, and received recognition as a hero after her death.In 1997, Stephanie Johnson made history by becoming the first Black woman pilot for Northwest Airlines. Twenty years later, in 2016, she became the first Black woman captain for Delta Airlines.Johnson says she was encouraged by a high school teacher to follow her dream of flying. There were no pilots in her life growing up, she says, but for as long as she can remember she’s been fascinated by airplanes. She studied flying while attending Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Upon graduating, she became a flight instructor for Kent State’s aviation program.Johnson and Dawn Cook, an African-American First Officer pilot for Delta Airlines, made history on Feb. 26 after organizing a historic flight together. The two women piloted a Delta Airlines flight from Detroit to Las Vegas. Delta celebrated Johnson during Black History Month and honored both women during Women’s History Month.Johnson encourages young children to consider a career in aviation and has worked with the Detroit Aviation Career Education Academy. She also served as director of the academy. She states, “I feel I have a great sense of responsibility to be a positive role model; that there were so few women in this profession, and too many women who still don’t think of it as a career option.” (Huffington Post, March 2)Johnson adds, “When I was hired by Northwest Airlines, there were 12 African-American women airline pilots in the country at the major airlines, and I knew all of their names. … One of the most rewarding parts of my career has been sharing my passion for aviation and exposing young people to the opportunities in the field.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

On International Day of Persons with Disabilities, protest demands for equality, access and an end to police murder

first_imgNew York – For the fourth consecutive year, the People’s Power Assemblies organized a rally to commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities with the support of the People’s MTA, Black Lives Matter,  Shut It Down and Workers World Party.This year’s Dec. 3 protest targeted the recently renovated 23rd Street and 6th Avenue subway station. There the Metropolitan Transit Authority has continued its “tradition” of spending money on cosmetic renovations, such as adding artwork in stations, without spending a penny on accessibility for desperately needed elevators and more “economical” use of wheelchair ramps.People’s Power Assemblies signs at the rally and posted inside the station included: “This Newly Renovated Station Has NO ELEVATORS!”  “We Demand All Station Renovations Must Have ELEVATORS!” and “HALF OF ALL PEOPLE KILLED BY POLICE HAVE A DISABILITY, END RACIST POLICE TERROR.”Stop murders of disabled peopleThe PPA distributed a flyer at the protest about the widespread killing of disabled people by police in the U.S.: “Jeremy McDole, a paraplegic man, was murdered by police, Sept. 23, 2015; … Magdiel Sanchez, killed Sept. 19, 2017, was deaf; Eric Garner, who had medical disabilities, was murdered July 17, 2014; Chinedu Valentine Okobi, 36; Jontell Reedom, 27; Shukri Said, 36; Danny Ray Thomas, 34; Saheed Vassell, 34 — all had mental disabilities, and all were executed by the police.”Another country currently violating the rights of disabled people is Israel. According to Mondoweiss.net, Israel supposedly commemorated the Dec. 3 International Day of Persons with Disabilities promising greater “integration” of the country’s 1.5 million disabled citizens. On the same day, Israeli forces shot and killed a disabled Palestinian man, Muhammad Ihbali.Ihbali’s killing occurred in the northern occupied West Bank city of Tulkarem, near the coffee shop where the 22-year-old worked. Videos published on social media show the unarmed Ihbali walking, his back turned to soldiers, when he suddenly falls down face first onto the pavement. His family, who says he had a mental disability, told the Middle East Eye that he was shot in the head and died shortly after arrival at the hospital. Ihbali was one of at least five Palestinians with mental or physical disabilities killed by Israel over the past year. (tinyurl.com/yanop75t)Human rights groups have accused Israeli forces of intentionally disabling Palestinian youth by shooting them in the knees. Since April nearly 70 Palestinians in Gaza have had one or both their legs amputated and face little hope of acquiring prosthetic limbs, which are too expensive for the average Gazan family. (tinyurl.com/yataldfp)In fact Israel and U.S. cops have something else in common — the use of hollow-point, dum-dum or expanding exploding bullets designed to maim, permanently disable or be a more certain “quick kill.”The New York Police Department has sadistically used these bullets since 1998 in violation of international law in warfare, based on the Declaration of St. Petersburg of 1868 and the Hague Convention of 1899. The Pentagon actually maintains that the use of expanding bullets can be legal when there is a clear “military necessity,” and it has sabotaged restrictions on their use in the Geneva Convention protocols.Black Lives Matter and Shut It Down speakers also alerted the Dec. 3 crowd to the epidemic of U.S. police murders of disabled people of color. Participants held and read aloud signs telling the story of the police killing of Deborah Danner, a 66-year-old African-American woman, fatally shot by NYPD Sgt. Hugh Barry on Oct. 18, 2016, in her home in the Bronx.According to police sources, Danner was armed first with a pair of scissors and then a baseball bat. But according to court testimony by Brittney Mullings, an emergency medical technician, Danner had put down the scissors and was not holding anything in her hands. Mullings had arrived first at the apartment and explained to Danner why the cops had come. The police interrupted their conversation, Danner retreated into her bedroom and six police officers followed her. A minute later, Mullings heard two shots.Danner had a mental illness diagnosis and had written an inspiring 2012 essay about her disability, “Living With Schizophrenia.”‘Accessibility is a right!’The People’s Power Assemblies flier stated: “Only 20 percent of New York City’s MTA transit system is accessible for riders who are disabled. That’s 94 out of 472 subway stops. Just imagine if the MTA closed 378 (80 percent) of its stations, and you are only able to use 94. We demand elevators now.”MTA’s current fare-hike proposal discriminates against disabled people. According to the Nov. 25 NY Daily News, “Commuters with disabilities may get socked with a fare increase that’s twice what able-bodied MetroCard users would pay under an MTA fare hike proposal.”Access-A-Ride fares could rise 25 cents to $3, a 9.1 percent jump, note accessibility advocates. Most other commuters would see hikes of around 4 percent. The fare hikes “would negatively and disproportionately harm people with disabilities who use New York City’s Access-A-Ride system,” according to a letter from 11 directors of advocacy organizations sent to Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio.”Solidarity in protestAt the rally,  a wheelchair-user and spokesperson for the People’s MTA  described her struggle to get aboard most trains, as the floor of a subway car is often 4 inches higher than the platform. Other speakers explained how a job interviewer may often assume a person who cannot see is incapable of performing basic tasks. But they don’t realize that a visually impaired person could create a flawless resume or dress appropriately when such a person sits right before them.The Chelsea rush hour crowd responded to the rally with support and solidarity; some even joined and assisted in handing out leaflets and holding signs. One passerby, a teacher of blind people, promised to attend future PPA meetings to help its disability rights work.  Even after 27 years of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the U.S. still refuses to ratify the international U.N. treaty, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty requires signatory countries to promote, protect and ensure the full enjoyment of human rights for people with disabilities, including full equality under the law.In solidarity, it is the duty of all who claim to advocate for justice, human rights, solidarity with workers on the job and liberation of oppressed peoples to include people with disabilities in their actions and in the great slogan of the labor movement: “An Injury to One Is an Injury to All.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The ASG submitted that Disha tried to delete the electronic records of her chats and documents, and this suggested a “prima facie guilty mind”.During the hearing, the judge asked if there was any evidence linking the ‘toolkit’ to the January 26 violence.”What exactly is the evidence collected by you against this lady connecting her to the violence perpetuated on Jan 26?Is there any evidence, or are we required to merely work on surmises, conjectures?”, the judge asked.The judge also asked if an imputation can be made against a person merely on the basis of her association with another person or organization.The ASG replied that conspiracy is not something which can be “seen or touched” and it has to be gathered from the circumstances.”The conspiracy is not that I knew a particular person and told them to commit violence, but that I created a document which I knew and intended to incite violence. The conspiracy is in the meeting of the minds”, the ASG said.”Should I presume there is no direct link now?”, the judge asked in return. The ASG replied that police are still investigating.The judge also remarked during the hearing that he has a “bad habit” of not moving ahead until his judicial conscience is satisfied.”I have a bad habit. I can’t move ahead until I satisfy my judicial conscience”.Advocate Siddharth Agarwal, appearing for Disha Ravi, said :”I am a girl 22 years of age, living in Bangalore, a graduate, whose history, geography, past, present or future, have nothing to do with Khalistan”.”They have not indicated a single conversation between Sikhs For Justice and her. They don’t even say that Sikhs For Justice organization is connected to Poetic Justice Foundation”, Agarwal said.Agarwal: There is no mark on a person’s face saying that they are a secessionist. It’s a very nice English word, conspiracy. I’ve learnt it from Mr. Raju himself, “jiska koi nahi hota, uska conspiracy hota hain.”#DishaRavi#Toolkit— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) February 20, 2021 “FIR states that I have attacked chai and yoga. Is this the parameter for sedition?”, Disha’s lawyerAgarwal argued that Disha was merely organizing a peaceful protest and it cannot be brought under the offence of sedition under Section 124A IPC.”If the offence is that I protested peacefully, I’m guilty! If the offence is that I advertised about this peaceful protest, I’m guilty. If this is the parameter, I’m definitely guiltyFor instance, if there is yoga. And I prefer kung fu over yoga. Will I become a Chinese spy? I’m not saying this. It’s in their FIR. We’re reducing the bar of someone having a different point of view. Their allegations in the FIR state that I have attacked chai and yoga. Is this the parameter for sedition?”Agarwal: Their allegations in the FIR state that I have attacked chai and yoga. Is this the parameter for sedition?#DishaRavi#Toolkit— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) February 20, 2021 The toolkit does not create any “disaffection against India” and cannot be regarded as seditious.”The upshot of 124A is an utterance or communication. If the communication here is of the Toolkit, there is no disaffection in the Toolkit. Neither on a plain reading, nor on a reading through the ASG’s eyes. Their case is not that the Toolkit is seditious but that these persons are bad”,, Agarwal continued.Mentioning that Section 124A even provides for a punishment of only a simple fine, Agarwal submitted :”I am not saying that I should be exonerated on this basis, but kindly consider that at the end of the day, there is a possibility that I may get away with merely a fine”.Agarwal also attacked the Prosecution submission that Disha’s custody was required to ascertain if she had more mobile phones or laptops.”I am extremely surprised, they are saying there could be more mobiles, more laptops.. in my 5 days worth of policy custody, I was not even taken to Bangalore, no raid was conducted.My case is, were they sleeping while I was in custody?” Pointing out that the co-accused Advocate Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk have been granted transit anticipatory bail by the Bombay High Court, Agarwal undertook that his client will also appear before the police for investigation as and when called for, if released on bail.”My purpose is merely seeking a balance between my right to liberty and their right to investigate. The balance was in their favour on the first day, but now it’s in my favour”, Agarwal submitted.Toolkit not seditious;merely a call for protestAgarwal submitted that there is no evidence to indicate that the Toolkit was responsible for anything. Their case is that when they read the Toolkit they have certain feelings invoked.”Their case is that whatever has happened anywhere in the world is because of this Toolkit. In Rome, some graffiti was stuck on the embassy, or on the Red Fort a flag hoisted, their case is that it’s all because of the Toolkit…It merely tells people to come forward, join the march and go back home…This march was permitted by the Delhi Police. It was on the basis of this that people came forward”, he argued.”If I sent or encouraged people to take part in this march, I become seditious?They were asked to make representations to government offices, is this sedition?The toolkit talks about digital strike, this doesn’t mean the Gulf Strike. Physical action called for in Embassies, Ambani, Adani offices – doesn’t mean throwing stones. These are tools for people to express their feelings across the globe”. Agarwal: They were asked to make representations to government offices, is this sedition?#DishaRavi#Toolkit— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) February 20, 2021 Responding to the ASG’s arguments that the deletion of WhatsApp evidence suggested criminality, Agarwal submitted :”A person may run for two reasons – either he is guilty or to save himself from wrong persecution. A person may have fears of wrong prosecution, unfortunately, for this girl, her fears have come true.In such a scenario, even if a 22-year old girl has deleted chats, which you have access to in 17 other sources, and can recover and have recovered anyhow, kindly look at the issue in that light only”.Agarwal: If my inputs to Greta Thunberg have to be looked into, then kindly consider that her tweet is only for the farmers’ protest, not for anything else.#DishaRavi#Toolkit— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) February 20, 2021 Yesterday, Additional Chief Metropolitan Chief Magistrate Aakash Jain had remanded her to 3-day judicial custody accepting the demand made by Delhi police.The Public Prosecutor Irfan Ahmed told the Court that notice has been send to co-accused Shantanu Muluk(who has been granted 10 days transit anticipatory bail by Bombay High Court Aurangabad Bench)asking him to join investigation on February 22. The Prosecutor further submitted that Disha was “evasive” during the interrogation and tried to shift blame on the co-accused.The Prosecutor submitted that the ACMM had granted 3-days judicial custody of accepting this argument. However, the Addl Sessions Judge replied that the fact that remand has been allowed accepting the said argument is not a bar to consider the bail application.When the Prosecutor handed over a sealed cover envelope, the ASJ required it to be produced along with an affidavit.Conspiracy against India in the name of farmers protests, ASG submitsAdditional Solicitor General SV Raju submitted that a Canada-based outfit named “Poetic Justice Foundation”, having pro-Khalistan leanings, was involved in the farmers protests. The ASG said that this group has been “inciting hatred against the Government of India” through its Instagram posts.Disha Ravi made a Zoom call with the ‘Poetic Justice Foundation’ – which was looking for an Indian face- on January 11.”There was no need for them to have this Zoom call with this organization whose credentials are well known”, the ASG said.The accused was creating a conspiracy with the PJF.”The ‘toolkit’ may look innocuous, but it is not as innocuous as it is made to appear. The final toolkit was also shared with PJF”, the ASG submitted. There were Khalistani elements in the group who wanted a flag to be hoisted at the Red Flag.The ‘toolkit’ document, which was supposed to be for internal circulation, got leaked in the social media.”They panicked and deleted. If there was nothing wrong, they wouldn’t have deleted parts of the Toolkit, WhatsApp chats, etc.Tey have systematically deleted evidence that’s why now we have also added S.201 IPC”.”This is only a facade, they took advantage of farmers’ protests and furthered their agenda. Innocent persons would think it was only for farmers protests”, the ASG added.The ASG submitted that the ‘Toolkit’ has been very cleverly designed and that one of the hyperlinks takes one to a page which talks about Kashmir, defames the Indian Website.Referring to the website of ‘Genocide Watch’, ASG Raju submitted that it talks about the cutting off of internet in Kashmir, the “crushing of Kashmir’s right to self-determination by Indian Army.”  It warns India not to commit genocide on Muslims in Kashmir. It says the genocide process is underway in Assam.Reading out such contents, ASG Raju said that the ‘toolkit’ was not really about farmers protests. In the garb of protesting against farm laws, they were giving a call for people to assemble for “anti-national activities”. The idea is that when one reads the ‘Toolkit’ it directs a reader to other websites with content against India.” Before this violence on Jan 26, they had prepared templates with certain details to be shared by persons. They have infact even prepared templates of what kind of tweets must be shared by people on social media”, the ASG said.The ASG pointed out that the templates mentioned in the document had statements like “many protesters reported missing.”, “many shown dead”, “police using tear-gas shells, water cannons”.”Why have these been shared to post in the future?” ASG asked. He further mentioned that $250,000 award was announced to anyone who hoists the flag of Khalistan on Red Fort.The ASG alleged that Disha Ravi was one of the editors of the ‘toolkit’. After the document got leaked, Ravi tried to delete things, to cover her tracks, which shows a guilty mind “prima facie”.The prima facie investigation has shown links to Vancouver, which the ASG called the “hot-bed of Khalistani activities”.The sharing of the ‘toolkit’ with PJF shows that the intention was not farmers protests but something “more sinister”.Raju further submitted that Disha lied to the police on several aspects such as creating WhatsApp groups. The links with Khalistani groups attract the offence of sedition under Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code.”She was afraid that her identity would be revealed which is why she asked Greta Thunberg to remove the document. This shows the guilty mind, she was aware, she knew the sinister design behind the Toolkit. She knew this design would be found out, that is why there was an attempt to remove the original Toolkit and create a new one. She was aware of the criminality of her actions”, the ASG continued.He argued that Ravi’s further custody was necessary to examine the electronic document and to unravel the larger conspiracy.Can imputation be made against a person for association with another organization? Court asks ASGDuring the hearing, the Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana asked :”To satisfy my judicial conscience, I need you to answer, if I am a person emotionally attached to a particular movement/cause, and for the same I get involved with persons who have different methods without being aware can the same imputation be made against this person also?””If I’ve approached a dacoity for donations, can the imputation of dacoity be invoked against me also?”, the judge further asked.The ASG replied that the the larger conpiracy angle must be seen and that in a conspiracy, everyone may not have an equal role. When a person closely associates with persons of dubious credentials, like Dhaliwal of PJF, it must be presumed that the person was aware of the same.”Your Honour would appreciate that this needs to be read in the background that people were asked to move to Delhi – for hoisting of the Khalistani flag, etc. Your Honour would need to look at this in that background. It is not merely asking people to come to Delhi”, the ASG submitted.”This is not a simple Toolkit, if one were to look at the background, it would be clear that these are persons connected to the Khalistani movement – one is presumed to know this”, the ASG continued.The ASG also emphasized that Disha tried to cover up the tracks by deleting evidence.”My query is…is there any evidence, or are we required to merely work on surmises, conjectures?”, the judge asked.Court : What is the link between the toolkit and Jan 26 violence? ASG : In a conspiracy, everyone may not have an equal role. Our point is that through this, those connected to the Khalistani movement were instigated.ASG: Because the Toolkit says do this, do that.. Court: This is exactly what I’m alluding to. What is this do this, do that? “What exactly is the evidence collected by you against this lady connecting her to the violence perpetuated on Jan 26?”, the judge asked.Background She was arrested from her Bangalore residence on February 13 by the Delhi police in a case registered over the “toolkit” shared by international activist Greta Thunberg related to the farmer’s protest on social media.The Bombay High Court has granted three-weeks transit anticipatory bail to co-accused Advocate Nikita Jacob in the case.The Cyber Cell of the Delhi Police had lodged an FIR on February 4 against unnamed persons over the ‘toolkit’ shared in connection with coordination of farmers protests. The case against unnamed persons was registered on charges of criminal conspiracy, sedition and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code, the police said. Ravi’s was the first arrest made by the police in the case.Ravi has filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court aggrieved by the media reportage about her. On Friday, a bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh observed that media should exercise editorial discretion to avoid sensationalism which could hamper the investigation in the case. The bench also directed the Delhi Police to ensure that no media leakage happens in compliance with the stand taken by it in its affidavit.
