Just 2 years back , he completed MBA from Bangalore institute of Management , Bangalore , Karnataka. He was a budding entrepreneur, he recently started a beverage company in his state Manipur and also runs a cafe named Bamboo Cafe at his hometown Wangoi Manipur.

Union Rail way Minister for State Accused of Rape, Cong and other organisations Demands “Immediate Sacking”

Assam police have registered a case against minister of state for railways Rajen Gohain for allegedly raping and threatening a 24-year old married woman in Nagaon district, a senior police officer said on Friday, 10 August.

In return, Gohain filed complaints of blackmailing against the woman and her family, his officer on special duty Sanjiv Goswami said when contacted, claiming that the case against the minister has been withdrawn.

When asked about the withdrawal, Nagaon police station officer-in-charge Ananta Das said the woman had pleaded to withdraw the case in court but the “case still stands… we will do our own investigation”.

Nagaon deputy superintendent of police (headquarter) Sabita Das said the case was registered against Gohain on 2 August, after a complaint was received at the Nagaon police station.

“We have registered the case. The investigation has already begun and we will proceed as per law,” she said.

Das, however, refused to share any details about the case.

“The FIR was registered under IPC sections 417 (cheating), 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation). We are investigating and have already noted the lady's statement,” a senior officer said, adding that the woman had refused medical examination.

Gohain had allegedly committed the crime at the woman's home when her husband and other family members were not present, he said.

Asked if the minister’s arrest was imminent, the police official said, “We are probing now. If required, arrest will happen only after the probe is complete.”

Gohain did not answer the phone when contacted for a comment, while Goswami said the minister “will not speak to the media”. When asked about the alleged rape case, Goswami said it had been withdrawn. “There is no case as of today and as of now,” he said.

Reacting to the allegations, the Congress on Friday, 10 August, demanded the “immediate sacking” of Gohain.

Congress leader Pawan Khera addressed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him to immediately sack Gohain from the union council of ministers.

We demand from this government, from Prime Minister Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah to take immediate and strict action against rape accused Minister Rajen Gohain, the Minister of State for Railways.

Khera also reminded the prime minister of the promise he had made before 2014 parliamentary elections about his commitment towards ensuring women safety in the country.

"Remove him from office. You cannot allow him to be in a position of power and influence the investigation. Please remove him if you meant anything that you promised before 2014," he told reporters.

Accusing Modi of “remaining silent” on the Kathua, Unnao and more recent Muzaffarpur and Deoria rapes, he said Modi was “failing” the women of the country and questioned his silence on the rape charge against the union minister.

"Again there is a rape FIR against the Cabinet colleague of yours - MoS for Railways Rajen Gohain. If you do not act now, you will loose the moral authority to stay in office even for a day. Please take action," he said.

An open letter to KHADC from a Khasi women on the marriage decision of KHADC

Shillong | July 26, 2018:

Dear Leaders, Members and Office bearers of Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC),

I am a common Shillong woman in my mid twenties borne out of a Khasi mother and a non Khasi father wedlock. My family members never followed the religion of my father or grandfather rather I have been taught to proudly display the practice of a matrilineal society whenever and wherever I represent myself outside the state of Meghalaya in any platform that I go to.

I have spent most of my time outside the state of Meghalaya and I have always asserted my identity as a Khasi and how my future children will carry my Khasi lineage as a way of making people understand the power of Khasi women and how beautiful this society is as compared to many other societies even if they are progressive and developed.

I have a Scheduled Tribe Certificate but have never used it after I became an adult and that piece of paper is lying somewhere in my cupboard (I don’t look at it because over the years, I have turned into a privileged woman and find it so unfair to take advantage of it). Although I may not use this Scheduled Tribe Certificate but I still keep it because it gives me a sense of my identity which I strongly hold on to, a sense of belongingness and makes me believe that I am a part of a Khasi society regardless of whether I attend clan meetings or communion gatherings.

It gives me a sense of security that no one can take my identity away from me and that my future children too will get a sense of belongingness and identity through this document. In all my past relationships with non Khasi men, I have always told them that no matter who I get married to or where I start living, I will always be a Khasi and that my children will carry my lineage forward and not the identity of whoever I get married to.

I am not sure if this makes me a feminist but I am only making sure that my future off springs too get this sense of pride from being a Khasi and the value this community really holds. I don’t think I am diluting the Khasi population in anyway rather I am carrying it forward! (I am quite aware of the pure scientific bloodline and DNA but who isn’t a part of this mixed race anyway if we are to start digging our ancestral family tree or bloodline) I see myself as a Khasi and that I belong in this society amongst you all.

I deeply understand this sense of insecurity and the threat which comes along with the invasion of people in the society and taking advantage of the benefits which come along with a Scheduled Tribe Certificate and how the right people of the community do not reap such benefits.

For instance, a Khasi woman married to a non Khasi man and the husband uses the document to evade tax or get schemes by doing business under the wife’s name or the children and the rich get richer while the poor tribals are still on the disadvantaged end. I really hope this is what the new bill aims to focus on and that the typist in your office has misconstrued some grammar and lines in the bill which makes it looks regressive and patriarchal!

I also understand English is not our mother tongue; even I end up making errors and somehow I demonstrate a different significance or connotation which I don’t mean to and I assume that your kind office made the same error. It’s never too late to correct some grammatical errors and gender stereotypes here and there. At the end of the day, humans err!

However, if the Khasi Social Customs of Lineage (Second Amendment) Bill 2018 really means to outrage the identity of Khasi women after marriage and her children out of a non Khasi wedlock then Shame On You! It is only defeating the core idea of a matrilineal society displaying signs of patriarchy and it is exactly an amalgamation of a herd of narrow mindedness which can never truly protect the Khasi Society and after few years even the word Khasi will no longer exist (I also believe in the saying ‘love conquers all’ and a woman’s heart will fall in love with whoever they want to without even thinking that they may be stripped from all Khasi privileges). So tell me, are you still sure that you are rightly protecting the people and preventing this ‘silent’ invasion of non khasis?

I also have another apprehension towards this bill! In this progressive world where each human is an equal to one another but this new Bill chose to only target women with a justification that in the future even ‘tangjait’ (khasi men marrying non khasi women and the children out of such marriage can be a Khasi) will also be rejected or denounced. I strongly believe that such deep level of playful patriarchy acts should not exist, at least I don’t expect my leaders to have this ideology.

If we want to develop the society then we should carry forward the people of all gender and type in this movement together towards preserving custom, culture and identity without biasness while introspecting if such amendments in the bill will really uphold the Khasi society because honestly I feel suffocated, vulnerable and insecure of my identity in front of this staunch hindutva-like idea of yours and I may even start shaming the bill amongst my peers, colleagues, friends, family and to the people I often meet outside the state of Meghalaya in personal and professional platforms.

Can you see me as your daughter and think deeply the repercussions this bill will have on me and my future identity?

Lastly, I can carry on telling you what is so wrong with this amendment in the bill but I think if the very idea of Equity doesn’t sit right in our minds then I am only knocking my head on the wall. I also strongly believe in applying this ideology of equity because a domino effect will happen where the right and the disadvantaged people will reap the benefits and not the economically privileged Khasi people in the society. Isn’t KHADC formed to live this idea of uplifting the lives of the tribals? 

Nevertheless, I am moving forward after writing this letter with an open heart and mind that you will rethink about this bill again or that there will be no assent to this bill by the Governor too. I am also moving forward equally determined that I will not let a small group of people or Guardians of culture and tradition decide my fate and that of many Khasi women out there. And if ever I marry a non Khasi, I will fearlessly remain a Khasi and my future children too will be Khasi and I will teach them to carry forward the torch of a matrilineal society and I will tell them those stories which my grandmother told me about being a Khasi woman and how a woman’s voice is so important in a family and community because they bring the family together  and is a caretaker of ancestral values and material property which is then reaped by the future generation of a society.

And along with this, I will teach my children equity with a value to love and hold each other together in a world where conformity is so rapid while people are losing the identity of uniqueness. 

Yours Sincerely,

Emarine Kharbhih

P.S Apologies if I offended you all by not addressing this letter with Sir or Madam, it is because I have given up the idea of Feudalism a long time ago

Chibinang, Phulbari, Tura, June 26: A seven year old girl Luna Begum D/O Lutfor Rahman Prodhani was allegedly raped by a 20 year old  Saddam Hossain S/O Abdul Jolil Sheikh from Kaimbatapara village of Chibinang under Phulbari PS in West Garo Hills.

The incident took place on Saturday in Kaimbatapara village while she was inside the house after he forcefully took her to his house and abused her.

According to locals, the victim was carried by the suspect forcefully in his arms. She was also not allowed to shout as he held her mouth shut. The victim was taken to the suspect’s house where he sexually assaulted her despite the presence of his family members. He absconded immediately after the crime, possibly with the help of his parents – who did nothing to stop the crime, despite allegedly being in the house during the time of the incident.

India most dangerous country in the world for women: Survey

India most dangerous country in the world for women: Survey

London:  India is the world's most dangerous country for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labour, according to a poll of global experts released on Tuesday.

War-torn Afghanistan and Syria ranked second and third in the Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of about 550 experts on women’s issues, followed by Somalia and Saudi Arabia.

The only Western nation in the top 10 was the United States, which ranked joint third when respondents were asked where women were most at risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.

The poll was a repeat of a survey in 2011 that found experts saw Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, India, and Somalia as the most dangerous countries for women.

Experts said India moving to the top of poll showed not enough was being done to tackle the danger women faced, more than five years after the rape and murder of a student on a bus in Delhi made violence against women a national priority.

“India has shown utter disregard and disrespect for women ... rape, marital rapes, sexual assault and harassment, female infanticide has gone unabated,” said Manjunath Gangadhara, an official at the Karnataka state government.

“The (world’s) fastest growing economy and leader in space and technology is shamed for violence committed against women.”

Government data shows reported cases of crime against women rose by 83 percent between 2007 and 2016, when there were four cases of rape reported every hour.

The survey asked respondents which five of the 193 United Nations member states they thought were most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of healthcare, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking.

Respondents also ranked India the most dangerous country for women in terms of human trafficking, including sex slavery and domestic servitude, and for customary practices such as forced marriage, stoning and female infanticide.

India’s Ministry of Women and Child Development declined to comment on the survey results.

Trapped by War

Afghanistan fared worst in four of the seven questions, with concerns over healthcare and conflict-related violence.

Kimberly Otis, director of advancement at Women for Afghan Women, said women and girls faced severe gender-based violence, abuse, illiteracy, poverty, and other human rights offences.

“The ongoing war and conflict are getting worse in Afghanistan, which puts the lives of women and girls at increasing risk,” said US-based Otis, a survey participant.

Afghanistan’s Public Health Minister Ferozuddin Feroz said the deteriorating security situation was making life difficult for women, with large parts of the country still in the control of Taliban fighters after nearly 17 years of war.

“Nowadays, suicide bombings and armed conflict is the third (highest) cause of deaths and disability in Afghanistan,” he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in an interview in London.

“Instead of focusing (spending) on maternal health, on nutritional status, we spend it on trauma.”

The impact of a seven-year war drove Syria into third place in the survey, amid concerns over access to healthcare and both sexual and non-sexual violence.

“There are so many dangers for girls and women,” said Maria Al Abdeh, executive director of Women Now For Development, which supports women’s centres in Syria.

“There is sexual violence by government forces. Domestic violence and child marriage are increasing and more women are dying in childbirth. The tragedy is nowhere near an end.”

Somalia, where more than two decades of war has fuelled a culture of violence and weakened institutions meant to uphold the law, was again named as one of the five most dangerous countries for women.

Saudi Arabia ranked fifth, with women’s rights experts saying there had been some progress in recent years, but the recent arrests of female activists ahead of the lifting of a ban on women driving showed much more needed to be done.

“One of the worst laws that prevent women from having equal opportunities is guardianship - because every woman is subjected to a male guardian. She cannot get a passport, cannot travel, sometimes she cannot work,” said Ahlam Akram, founder of BASIRA (British Arabs Supporting Universal Women’s Rights) in the UK.

“We need to completely obliterate this system. I think change is coming, but it takes time.”

#MeToo Puts US on the List

Experts said the surprise addition of the United States in the top 10 most dangerous countries for women came down to the #MeToo and Time’s Up campaigns against sexual harassment and violence that have dominated headlines for months.

“People want to think income means you’re protected from misogyny, and sadly that’s not the case,” said Cindy Southworth, executive vice president of the Washington-based National Network to End Domestic Violence.

“We are going to look back and see this as a very powerful tipping point ... We’re blowing the lid off and saying ‘#Metoo and Time’s Up’.”

Rounding out the top 10 most dangerous countries for women were Pakistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Yemen and Nigeria.

India, Libya and Myanmar were considered the world’s most dangerous nations for women exploited by human traffickers in a global crime worth an estimated $150 billion a year.

“In many countries the simple fact of being female creates a heightened risk of becoming a victim of slavery,” said Nick Grono, chief executive of the Freedom Fund, the first private donor fund dedicated to ending slavery.

The poll of 548 people was conducted online, by phone and in person between March 26 and May 4 with an even spread across Europe, Africa, the Americas, South East Asia, South Asia and the Pacific.

Respondents included aid professionals, academics, healthcare staff, non-government organisation workers, policy-makers, development specialists and social commentators.
