Arvind Kejriwal jailed in defamation case, supporters clash with police

21 May

Former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Wednesday arrested and sent to Tihar Jail till May 23 after he refused to furnish a bail bond in connection with a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari. After Aam Aadmi Party chief Kejriwal was taken inside the Tihar Jail, the situation outside turned chaotic as his party workers clashed with police in the evening. Several AAP workers, including senior party leader Yogendra Yadav, were detained by police following the clash. The police evicted AAP supporters and imposed Section 144, which prohibits mass gatherings, outside the jail. AAP leaders Rakhi Birla, Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh were also present outside the jail to lead the party’s supporters. “If it is a crime to call a corrupt person corrupt, then send us to jail or hang us. This is dictatorship,” said Singh. Yadav slammed the police’s move to evict them saying, “We are not doing anything illegal. Those who are indulging in corruption… Are sitting in their drawing rooms and enjoying while those opposing corruption are being sent to jail. What kind of justice is this? “This is police high-handedness. There should be women police to deal with women protesters. Earlier, Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha ordered after the AAP leader to be taken into custody after he repeatedly refused to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs 10,000 and a surety of like amount. “Take him into custody,” the magistrate ordered. “In these circumstances as the accused has refused to furnish bail bond or even personal bond without surety, this court is constrained to take the accused into custody.”Let the accused be sent to judicial custody and be produced before the court on May 23,” the magistrate said. The court, while passing the order, said that the AAP leader was looking for “some exceptional treatment”. The order was passed after Kejriwal refused to give an undertaking and furnish a bail bond of Rs 10,000. Kejriwal, who today appeared before the court in pursuance to the summons issued against him, told the Metropolitan Magistrate that he was ready to give an undertaking that he will appear before the court but refused to furnish bail bond to secure bail.

Dono Jahan Teri Mohabbat Main Haar K

17 May

Dono Jahan Teri Mohabbat Main Haar K

Wo Ja Raha Hai Koi Shab-e-Gham Guzaar K
 
Viraan Hai Maikada Khum-o-Sagar Udaas Hai

Tum Kya Gaye K Rooth Gaye Din Bahaar K
 
Ik Fursat-e-Gunah Mili, Wo Bhi Chaar Din

Dekhe Hain Ham Ne Hausale Parvar-Digaar K
 
Duniya Ne Teri Yaad Se Begaana Kar Diya

Tujh Se Bhi Dil Fareb Hain Gham Rozgaar K
 
Bhule Se Muskura To Diye The Wo Aaj ‘Faiz’

Mat Puch Val-Vale Dil-e-Na-Kardahkaar K
