Documentary – Inshallah, Kashmir: Living Terror


Inshallah, Kashmir: Living Terror is a 2012 documentary film directed, produced and written by Ashvin Inshallah,_KashmirKumar. It is the story of contemporary Kashmir. A series of counterpointed testimonies, the heartbreaking coming-of-age of ordinary people; warped and brutalised by two decades of militancy and its terrible response.

Testimonies of ordinary Kashmiris recount a brutal militancy and its terrible response. Dodging agents of Indian armed-forces, the filmmakers were able to obtain rare testimonials in the highest militarized zone in the world. The film tells how freedom is conceded and replaced by fear, governance by institutionalized oppression and a paradise made desolate on the watch of India : a secular, democratic republic.

LYRICS

RAPP BOI:

how would you feel? waking up to a morning
knowing that you won’t be witnessing the sun of another morning
oppressed for caste oppressed for colour religion and personal opinions
it’s democracy jai hind

hai ladayi yeh zaat ki zaat-o-jamaat ki
din-o-raat ki firqo mein bate aap ki
par aaj bhi yeh duniya nahi tere baap ki
aur aakhri khat mera hai azaad bhi

shaheed hu main shaheed ek sipahi
du gawahi har ek zulm ki aleef se elaahi
par wallahi ab main wo nahi jo tujhse dargaya
ghut-ghut ke jeeraha tha ya ghut-ghut ke margaya

good morning i won’t be around when you read this
i ain’t blaming no one but you know about my hit-list
i love science i love stars i love nature more than cars
but you talk about caste? you don’t deserve some water

dalit lives matter human lives matter
i always wanna be a writer writer like Carl Sagan
10 milligrams of sodium a good rope with some reason
got much stress on my mind so i became a monster

RAPP BOI – LIL’ G – OMER:

jai bheem
we want justice
fulfil our demands
we want justice
i won’t follow your commands
we want justice
till i die i will stand or till you punish the culprits

jai bheem
we want justice
hai amar tu shaheed
we want justice
we miss you rohit
we want justice
till i die i will stand or till you punish the culprits

LIL’ G:

dalit pareshani yeh mantriyo ki galti hai
rishwat dhoka bemani ghunda raj meri marzi hai
kamzarf samjhe mujhko shaheedo mein ab ginti hai
yeh sarkar bhrashtachar jaat-o-paat pe kyu ladti hai?

they say knowledge is a wisdom
equality liberty democracy what you believe in
i’ am a hindu or muslim buddhist or christian
religions don’t matter i’ am a human with nature

mere bhai mere dost we want justice
rest in peace oh my lord we want justice
jai bheem jai hind for a cause for some peace
amar tu rahe akhri khat mera geet

unchi zaat neechi zaat gumnaam har fankaar
jeena maut aur bas khaum horahe khatl-e-aam
dalit prashtachar is ladayi se bezaar
aandolan for a justice buland hai yeh farmaan

RAPP BOI – LIL’ G – OMER:

jai bheem
we want justice
fulfil our demands
we want justice
i won’t follow your commands
we want justice
till i die i will stand or till you punish the culprits

jai bheem
we want justice
hai amar tu shaheed
we want justice
we miss you rohit
we want justice
till i die i will stand or till you punish the culprits

RAPP BOI:

hum ladenge
bhooke rahenge
saari duniya ko kahenge tera zulm-o-sitam
jabtak hai zameer zinda

jai bheem
laal salaam
justice for rohtih
university of hyderabad
deathrap
2016

oh! wait
bahut kuch bolna abhi baaqi hai
muzaffar nagar abhi baaqi hai

i know my birth was a curse so i did my best to make my death a remark
a revolution
a new beginning
and then okay
i agree am talking about hooliganism
but what about you? haan?

it’s world’s largest democracy where the religions and caste sentiments are so called more beloved than the human who carries the religion on everyday basis, yeah!
but reports said it was mutton
let’s raise our voice

PROTEST:

we want justice
we want justice
we want justice
we want justice…
jai bheem!

Documentary – Bant Singh : The Warrior


Bant Singh

Bant Singh

Bant Singh2

Bant Singh is a lower caste Mazhabi, Sikh labourer and singer from the Jhabhar village in Mansa district, Punjab, India, who has emerged as an agricultural labour activist, fighting against the power of the landowner. Described by Amit Sengupta as “an icon of Dalit resistance he has been active in organizing poor, agricultural workers, activism that continues despite a 2006 attack that cost him both of his lower arms and his left leg.”

After his minor daughter was raped by some powerful men in 2000, he dared take them to court, an unusual occurrence when a Dalit is raped by a non-Dalit, braving threats of violence and attempted bribes. The trial culminated in life sentences for three of the culprits in 2004, “the first time that a Dalit from the region who had complained against upper-caste violence had managed to secure a conviction.”

On the evening of 7 January 2006 Bant Singh was returning home through some wheat fields. He had just been campaigning for a national agricultural labour rally to be held in Andhra Pradesh in January. He was suddenly waylaid by a gang of seven men, suspected to be sent by Jaswant and Niranjan Singh, the current and former headmen of his village who have links with the Indian National Congress party. One of them brandished a revolver to prevent any resistance while the other six set upon him with iron rods and axes beating him to pulp.

He was left for dead, and a phone call was made to Beant Singh, a leading man in Jhabhar, to pick up the dead body. However, Bant Singh was alive, though barely.
