Mosul, Iraq

Video shows what eyewitnesses claim to be ISIS destroying the personal residence of the former warden of Mosul Prison, General Khalaf al-Jabouri.

The prison had been used by the Iraqi government to detain suspected terrorists. Locals say that many of the inmates have now become members of ISIS.

General Jabouri fled his home in the Shura district of Mosul in June 2014 when ISIS militants seized control of Iraq's second largest city.

Palestine: When a School is Illegal
Khan al-Ahmar

Khan al Ahmar, West Bank, Palestine

The Khan al-Ahmar School serves the children of the Jahalin Bedouin community in the West Bank and has been declared illegal by Israeli authorities. It is now facing possible demolition. Built in 2009, the school was constructed with mud and tires due to a lack of funds and an Israeli law that bans Palestinians in Area C of the West Bank from building structures made of cement. The children now attend school in poorly equipped classrooms with no heating, leaking ceilings, and little electricity. However, it is possible that even this primitive learning environment could be snatched from them at a moment's notice. Over 140 students are currently enrolled in the school. The nearest alternative school is located about 45 minutes away by car. The school's imminent demolition is part of a plan by Israeli authorities to displace the Jahalin Bedouin living in "Area C" of the occupied West Bank. The Khan Al-Ahmar School and Bedouin community is located in the Jerusalem periphery, between the Israeli settlements of Ma'ale Adumim and Kfar Adumim. While the Jahalin Bedouin have a longstanding presence in this area (they settled in the area in 1948, after being evicted by Israel from their lands in the Negev desert), the community and school present an obstacle to Israel's planned settlement expansion and construction of the separation barrier. The community lives with the constant threat of displacement. Every year, the school administration goes to court in order to postpone the planned demolition of the school. This year they were lucky and the court sided with them. However, the order still stands and next year they may not be so lucky.

20th Anniversary of Babri Mosque Demo...
Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh, India
By newspoint
07 Dec 2012

The 20th anniversary of Babri mosque of Ayodhya. The 6th of December 1992 became a historical date in Indian history. After the demolishment of Babri masque in the Hindu’s spiritually city Ayodhya, a rift created between the two communities (Hindu & Muslim) Ayodhya was prohibited by the Government for a long time.
A superstructure called the Babri mosque standing in the city of Ayodhya, came crashing down. It remains even today a traumatic event for the nation, because modern Indians had not yet been weaned on a true history of India but on the Macaulayian version of the destruction of the structure as criminal vandalism.
However, the real act of vandalism was the superstructure built on a hoary and existing temple, and the vandals came from abroad to demolish the temple, and to build a mosque on the same spot. But temples, once it is shown that (prana prathista puj) wordhip was performed to build it, is where God or the deity resides, and therefore a temple belongs to God forever.
Babri mosque was built as an affront to the Hindus. Otherwise it could have been built anywhere else since namaz can be offered anywhere. Hindus can be proud to have prevailed in history because despite 800 years of Islamic and 200 years of Christian domination, Bharat today is still over 80 per cent of Hindus in population, and a continuing Hindu civilisation.

Byte-Hidu’s (Sant) Pious, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“I don’t want to hurt anyone's feelings. We are doing these programs (Bhajan, Kirtan) merely for build Ram temple at Lord RAM birth place in Ayodhya. The Babri Mosque demolition is not good for Muslims but Babar was to attacker and he attacked both Hindu & Muslims. Place of prayer should not be on anyone name like (Babri mosque) BABRI MASJID.”

Byte- Eye witness, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“I am connected with these cases since 1986. It seems that the Court will not sort out this issue.”

Byte- Eye witness, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“The issue (Temple & Mosque) will not give a chance to Politicians. Whether it is Mulayam Singh Yadav (Leader of Samajwadi Party), Mayawati (Leader of Bahujan Samjwadi Party), Maneka Gandhi (Leader of Bhartiya Janta Party) or Sonia Gandhi (President of UPA). Now it should be stopped. If it continues, then there won’t be any development of Ayodhya”.

Byte-Hidu’s (Sant) Pious, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“At that time we were scared looked at the chaos. But now, I felt that incident was caused by political parties. Now we had forgotten old quarrels and live with love both Hindu & Muslim.”

Byte – Resident, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“ Ayodhya has not developed yet because nobody paid priority of Lord Ramachandra. I am a Muslim guy. I can proudly say that I am a resident of Ayoddhya but there did not any kind of development. People here live in amity. Political parties try to create rift again between two communities, they have failed.”

Demolition at Sion Koliwada

The original inhabitants of Mumbai, the Kolis, faced another demolition drive for a development project in Sion Koliwada.

As per law, a builder requires 70% of the residents of a registered society to give consent to the project but in Sion Koliwada, the residents have repeatedly asserted that the builder used forged documents to claim a majority for the project.

There are over 80 re-development projects in Mumbai where residents have repeatedly claimed that the builder used fraudulent means to claim consent.
