ANTI-CONVERSION BILL KARNATAKA
UNADAP delegation with the Government of Karnataka | Hon'ble Law & Home Ministers

Dr. Dominic Dixon, the Executive Director of UNADAP, was graciously welcomed by the Hon’ble Law Minister of Karnataka, Sri. J.C. Madhuswamy, and the Hon’ble Home Minister of Karnataka, Shri Araga Jnanendra, right after the cabinet meeting at Vidhana Soudha (State Government office); to discuss the prevailing issue of the Anti-Conversion Bill. The purview of this bill is under the Hon’ble Ministers.

The Church in India, collectively, with a strong concentration in Karnataka have alleged that the move by the Government of Karnataka is unconstitutional. Dr. Dixon has asked the Hon’ble Ministers who are the key ministers in this bill, to consider the diminishing statistics of Christians in the country and the good work that the community has executed, as a peace loving and sacrificial unit. He expressed to the ministers that he himself is a practising Christian, to which the Ministers have stated that the Anti-Conversion bill is not targeted at any community, but to penalise forced and illegal conversions. They are in appreciation of the good work done in the State by Christians.

Whilst the bill is scheduled to be tabled during the upcoming winter session of the Assembly in Belagavi from December 13-24; Dixon requested the Ministers to ensure that Church services are not affected and to provide adequate security for the well being of Christians who have expressed their worst fears. The Home Minster has assured Dixon that there would be no attacks on any community and Church services will not be disrupted as feared by the Church, during Assembly sessions in Belagavi.

The Hon’ble Ministers have assured Dixon that Christians and all minorities have equal rights as per Article 25 of the Indian Constitution, and that the State government will ensure such freedom.

A statement from the government would be made shortly.

Dixon would have met with Prime Minister Modi and Chief Minister, Shri Basavaraj Bommai on the 6th to discuss this matter, but PM Modi had a delegation with Russian President Putin on the 6th as scheduled.

Dixon will be submitting a report to various International organisations and forums and to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India in due course.

Jai Hind!

The Covid-19 situation in Karnataka is deteriorating with each passing day and "we have reached a stage where things have become uncontrollable", said Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.

The Executive Director of UNADAP, Dr. Dominic F Dixon, had received his first dose of COVISHIELD vaccine. Dr. Dixon was welcomed by Dr. Shugota Chakrabarti, the Chief of Medical Services at ASTER CMI Hospital. Aster is a reputed hospital in Bangalore, India, with highly skilled and courteous medical professionals with the highest level of ethics and care.

BS Yediyurappa said, "Three to four people are infected [with Covid-19] in every household. The PM [Prime Minister Narendra Modi] has said the only solution now is to wear mask, sanitise hands and follow social distancing. There is no other way to stop Corona." "I request people with folded hands: Do not step out of your home unnecessarily. The situation is deteriorating and we have reached a stage where things have become uncontrollable," BS Yediyurappa said. (Source: India Today)

Dr. Dixon has suggested that, "It is the civil duty of every Indian citizen to be inoculated, to protect oneself and the others around us." He further stated that "We should refrain from conspiracy theories and honour medical sciences and the guidance issued by that discipline." He further stated that, "The virus is not as respecter of persons, to target an ethnic or religious group, but it is a virus that has affected all of humanity, with devastating effects. No one was prepared for this calamity, but, we are all in this together."

Dr. Chakrabarti is hopeful that the state would receive adequate amounts of doses for its population, along with the required amounts of oxygen. He further stated that "We at Aster want to ensure the public that it is totally safe to take the vaccine as my colleagues and I have taken both the doses without incident."

India approves 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines for Canada

UNADAP OFFICIAL

 

UNADAP's Executive Director, Dr. Dominic F Dixon has long recommended the benevolence of Indian Prime Minister Modi, to help Canadians with the COVID-19 vaccine, as Canada is a country that is close to his heart. In stating that, Dr. Dixon has also cautioned that matters pertaining to the farmer's protest in India, which Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau had commented on, was unbecoming of him, which drew a flak and a diplomatic reaction. Non-violent, non-partisan protests are a democratic right of an Indian citizen, and is considered an internal matter, not requiring an external intervention.

WION NEWS

 

Indian government has approved one million doses of COVID-19 vaccines for Canada. The development comes days after Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to each other. 

During the talks, PM Modi assured the Canadian PM of COVID vaccine supplies. A readout from Indian PM's office said during the talks Prime Minister Trudeau informed his PM Modi about "Canada's requirements of COVID-19 vaccines from India" to which the latter "assured...that India would do its best to support Canada's vaccination efforts, just as it had done for many other countries already".  

Later in response to a question in a presser Canadian PM said that his country is "looking at possible extra vaccines coming from India from the Serum Institute". India, which produces 60% of global vaccines, has sent covid vaccines to more than 20 countries.

The vaccine support from New Delhi to Canada comes even as ties were frayed over comments by Canadian PM on the ongoing farmers' protests in India in December 2020. The comments had drawn a strong reaction from India who had lodged a strong protest by summoning the Canadian envoy to Delhi, Nadir Patel, and handing over a demarche that such comments could impact the bilateral ties.

PEACE & CONFLICT

Dr. Dominic F Dixon®

Talk to, the Grade 5 students of The Indian Public School

Dr. Dominic F Dixon was the key note speaker to an enterprising group of 70, Grade 5 students of TIPS (The Indian Public School) in India. Thanks to technology, we can communicate across borders.

PEACE AND CONFLICT

The United Nations does not have solutions, nor does it have the power to eradicate poverty, injustice, inequality, or any of the SDGs. You, Grade 5 students have more power to cause a change. Start with your own household, recycle the waste. Make sure that the male members in your house respect the women in the house.

 

POVERTY

IF YOUR MOTIVATION IS TO MAKE MONEY AND BECOME RICH, THEN YOU WILL BE THE MOST MISERABLE, IMPOVERISHED PERSON ON EARTH.

Wherever there is corruption and inequality, there will always be poverty. Mahatma Gandhi stated, "The world has enough for everyone's needs, but not everyone's greed."

 

YOU DON’T NEED A TITLE OR A POSITION TO INFLUENCE AND BE A CHANGE-MAKER.

 

Mahatma Gandhi was not the Prime Minister, not a Chief Minister, not an MLA, not a Municipal Corporator, not even a ward councillor. But yet, we call him as the father of the nation - The Mahatma, because he led a nation to freedom – The Mahatma. Mahatma Gandhi was influenced in South Africa by the Church, where He learned about Jesus and how Jesus had loved the world that He died for us. The life of Christ influenced Gandhi and the life of Gandhi influenced a nation. How are you being influenced? 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi: There was nothing notably honourable about his birth. Born in a village and sold tea at a railway station. With sheer determination and hard work, now world leaders stand in line to have tea with him. During the pandemic, over 22 country’s Prime Ministers and Presidents have called on the PM to help save lives with the Indian vaccines. Love him or hate him, history will always refer to Mr. Modi as, HONOURABLE.

MOTHER TERESA: In times where Indians travel to the US, Europe, Australia, Canada and all over the world for education, prosperity and migration, Mother Teresa, an Albanian woman who committed her life to the service of humanity, came to India to serve Indians.

 

Teresa said, "By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus.

In 1979, Teresa received the Nobel Peace Prize "for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitutes a threat to peace". When Teresa received the prize she was asked, "What can we do to promote world peace?" She answered, "Go home and love your family."

COVID-19, UNADAP CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY

In response to our civic duty, officers of UNADAP have ​given large portions of their income to support migrant workers, families with low income and the destitute; with financial assistance and food rations. We have reached out to civilians in the cities of Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. We have provided face masks and hand sanitizers to Bangalore city police. UNADAP has made financial contributions to the Archdiocese of Bangalore (BMSS Disaster Relief Fund) for their outreach programs towards the distribution of food items to the poor.

As UNADAP remains closed and perhaps uncertain of reopening in the coming months, every single employee will still receive their salaries in full.

We have restrained from posting pictures of our acts of civic charitable duty, as we feel that we need to protect the dignity of the beneficiaries and not reveal their identities.

AFRICAN PEACE MISSION

Dr. Paul Victor, Goodwill Ambassador of MORE TRUST to the African continent, with leaders.

Both the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the African Union Agenda 2063 recognize the importance of peace and stability, not only as critical enablers but also as important components of sustainable development. In line with this aspiration, Africa has also continued, with the support of the United Nations and development partners, to address emerging challenges to peace, security and development, such as the rise of terrorism and violent extremism as well as the growing number of migrants, refugees and internally displaced persons. In this regard, African countries continue to attach great importance to tackling the root causes of conflict such as youth unemployment, inequality, and economic and social exclusion, including through the African Peace and Security Architecture and the African Governance Architecture. Recognizing the critical needs and role of women, the African Union declared 2016 the African Year of Human Rights with Particular Focus on the Rights of Women.

Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar

subrahmanyam_jaishankar_minist.jpeg

Celebrated former top diplomat Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar has been appointed the new Minister of External Affairs. Jaishankar, who was previously the foreign secretary during the Narendra Modi government's first term in office, was a surprise addition to the Narendra Modi Cabinet 2.0, which took oath on Thursday.

Before he became the foreign secretary, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar served as India's ambassador to the United States as well as China.

A 1977-batch Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar played a major role during the Doklam stand-off negotiations with China. The 2017 Doklam stand-off was among India and China's worst crises; Chinese and Indian soldiers were engaged in an eye-to-eye confrontation for over two months.

Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, who had China expertise thanks to his experience of serving as Delhi's ambassador to Beijing, led the negotiations to resolve the crisis.

During the Manmohan Singh years, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar was involved in negotiating the landmark and controversial Indo-US nuclear deal.

Subrahmanyam Jaishankar is the son of late K Subrahmanyam, one of India's leading strategic analysts. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar is a graduate of St Stephen's College and has an MA in Political Science and an MPhil and PhD in international relations from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

S Jaishankar is married to Kyoko Jaishankar and has two sons and a daughter.

In 2019, S Jaishankar was conferred with Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award of India.

Secretary-General’s message on Human Rights Day

For 70 years, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been a global beacon – shining a light for dignity, equality and well-being … and bringing hope to dark places.

The rights proclaimed in the Declaration apply to everyone — no matter our race, belief, location or other distinction of any kind.

Human rights are universal and eternal.

They are also indivisible.  One cannot pick and choose among civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.

Today we also honour the human rights defenders risking their lives to protect people in the face of rising hatred, racism, intolerance and repression.

Indeed, human rights are under siege around the world.

Universal values are being eroded.  The rule of law is being undermined. Now more than ever, our shared duty is clear: Let us stand up for human rights — for everyone, everywhere. Thank you.

GENDER EQUALITY | Dr. Dominic F Dixon, Executive Director, UNADAP

"As I derive my dictum from the US declaration of independence, that; "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." I read that declaration with the inclusive sense that both men and women are created equal; thus have a right to equality."

"Federal/ Political Land Dispute" & "Settlement and Hostage Negotiation."

SESSION ONE:
Training to handle demographic land dispute and settlement of two peoples' group with the endangerment of genocide.

For land settlement, Dr. Dixon had to simulate as the country representative for the right to self determination as a peoples group. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the United Nations were the observers. The final agreement was to call for a truce and to allow minorities the right to education, the right to mother tongue, the right to public sector jobs and the right of the minority group to run for office. The ultimate goal would be for 'one nation one people'.

HOSTAGE NEGOTIATIONS
