Popular Indian Myths about COVID-19. “Why you need to delete WhatsApp”
Hindu Mahasabha Organised a Gau Mutra Party (Cow Urine drinking celebration) to ward off corona virus on lines similar to that of tea parties held in India. If you are surprised to see this then don’t a BJP representative who likes to call himself “Dr” Sambit Patra, suggests that the cow dung is more valuable than diamond. Let us hope american women do not believe him otherwise they would demand a dung ring in marriage. May be Patra is too smart and he was trying to sell Indian animal excreta to american couple, may be that way Indian economy can be revived. May be he is just a genius world has always ignored. Another BJP leader from West Bengal Dilip Ghosh downplayed corona threat and says that in India because people pray they have blessings of God and they will not be contracting corona.
While churches and Mosques getting closed for public or atleast restricted entry, many members of Hindu community were promoting this gau Mutra party on whatsapp. We have videos floating online from karnata, some people from swarna Bhumi gaushala (Gold land cow shelter) have used the dung to prepare a gobar bathing tub. They literally bathed in cow dung to save themselves from corona. Still if you do not believe me then watch the following video at your own risk.
Now let us get back to less gruesome events. After this pandemic reached India women were organizing assemblies singing and chanting bhajan style songs. The wordings are “Corona bhag ja Bharat mein tharo kaam na”, meaning “run away corona you have no work here”. The same song later requests corona that we(Indians) do not eat meat and fish you need not to punish us, we are not sinners, go punish those who do wrong. Those who tried to talk with these women say some of them are even graduates and masters degree holder yet they genuinely believe that corona is a punishment for those “filthy” Chinese who ate mice, bats, snakes and crabs, and commit sin by eating beef.
Myth about meat
The most dangerous myth on whatsapp is that corona can spread through chicken, meat and fish. The false pride that Indians associate with vegetarianism specially among women is not only harming industry but also their own health, more than 50% of Indian women suffer from anemia. As a matter of fact beef is a good source of Iron which is a taboo even among Indian men. Those who consume or make a living out of it are often beaten sometimes even to death. A friend of mine shared such false news with some old and irrelevant video, I asked him “why?” he said, “I shared in hope of saving people from sin of eating meat even if it is wrong”. But he, despite being highly educated, does not understand that lack of nutrition reduces immunity which then increases the chances of death after getting infected. Women generally have an advantage over men when it comes to immunity but lack of nutrition in India reverses that advantage. Which means women are more likely to survive corona infection than men anywhere else but India. Due to lack of nutrition high death rate age group may also get widened. Elsewhere it is 65 and above where as in India it may be 45 and above.
The Smriti Irani Arguments
In Global Hunger Index (GHI) India ranked 102 out of 117 even below pakistan (94th) and Bangadesh (88th) in 2019 but in 2020 we achieved new height by securing 103rd position. After this achievement our once upon a time Education Minister Mrs Smriti Irani says that the methodology followed to calculate GHI is flawed. Believe me she is qualified enough to call a certificate course from Yale University a degree. This is an example of burying your head in the sand. GHI is a good indicator of Nutritional status of a population.
All the above incidents keeping in mind that Indian constitution is probably the only constitution that enjoins developing scientific temper as a fundamental duty upon it’s citizens under article 51A is ironic. Considering the prevalence of myths and it’s potential harm due to that, ‘developing scientific temper’ should be the only fundamental duty and it should also be a legal responsibility of parliamentarians.
The Indian Govt
The Indian govt machinery is not far behind in spreading misinformation and myths. There is a whole ministry dedicated to other forms of medicine called Ministry of AYUSH. AYUSH is an acronym of Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddhi and Homeopathy. While it is surprising for many that India still considers homeopathy as a branch of medicine but not so surprising considering the fact that the ministry suggested a homeopathic medicine to cure corona, which after many twitter rants and trolling was taken down and ministry claimed it only suggested the medicine because it strengthens immune system. There is no empirical evidence to support this claim as well.
The Data hiding game
Indian Medical Association said that data of confirmed cases and deaths should not be released as it is causing people to panic. This statement is in perfect resonance of the current regime’s approach on data i.e. hide it, just like they did with employment data and farmer suicide data. I can’t comprehend the logic yes the country might experience a reduction in economic activity which is already at all time low but still a panic that saves life is better than a silent yet painful death of thousands.
The awkward act of ministers
A funny twist came when Minister of state for Social Justice and Empowerment under modi govt, Mr Ramdas Athawle from Maharashtra gathered with few people on a street and protested against Corona by chanting slogans of “Karona Go, Go Karuna”. Looks like corona didn’t like his protest and the next day we heard news of five more infected in Maharashtra.
But before that we need to keep in mind that COVID-19 spreads at an unprecedented rate. Our PM in today’s video conference to SAARC nations said do not go for knee jerk reaction and said we started screening airports since mid January. The fact is that the screening started just two weeks from now and we do not have enough time to develop infrastructure and then take action we literally need knee jerk reaction from government. Or may be this is his regime’s approach to reduce population since they had too much of problem with Muslim ‘Population’ in India. The PM’s claims are also wrong on the fact that for Holi celebrations many non resident Indians came back to India they played Holi which involves fluid exchange and a lot of touching exponentially Increasing the speed of spread. We were expecting an out break after Holi considering the casual way in which Indian govt was handling the situation at hand and this is exactly what happened.
When whole India and right wing was making jokes out of Allah and Quran on social media for Saudi Arabia stopping Umra Activity. The KSA was actually working on a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari Book 7, Vol 71, 624; Narrated Saud the Prophet said, “If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it; but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place.” A person who dies of plague is shaheed.
Since plague was an incurable disease back then the prescribed action is applicable to all incurable disease outbreak. A person who dies of such disease while being stranded in the infected place has saved humanity and so he is a shaheed. Since Corona has become a global pandemic freezing foreign airports should have been the first thing done by India and every other nation lacking in infrastructure.
The news channels
Wow they are not yet done with Muslims and the opposition. On 12th march 2020 Sudhir Chaudhri in his DNA published a chart explaining varieties of Jihads available in the menu it had all the way from education Jihad to economic Jihad to love Jihad. Many were shocked since few days before information and broadcasting (I&B)ministry put a ban on two Malayalam news channels for reporting active participation of “RSS and Delhi Police” in Anti-Muslim pogrom that happened in Delhi. But then we should keep in mind that this Sudhir Chaudhary is serving a member of parliament from BJP, Subhash Chandra, who is the chairman of Essel group that owns zee news. For Muslims ZeeNews have gone crazy but for many Hindus this was an expose and those who believed him are potential disasters waiting to happen. This was an open and naked incitement of hatred against Muslims.
Another Modi serving media TimesNow with it’s star anchor Navika Kumar lashed out on opposition. She bravely questioned opposition on wether they want to defeat modi or corona. How can you expect the opposition to act against corona? Infact Rahul Gandhi drew everyone’s attention towards the graveness of situation which the government was deliberately ignoring.
Apart from TV and WhatsApp we have some twitter accounts that actively indulge in spreading false news.
Many right wing social media activists, with core competency in abusing Muslims, thought kerala is cursed as it did not elect modi. Turns out kerala has so many cases because it is the only state actively testing and reporting while other states firmly believe that cow dung and urin will cure corona. In Uttar Pradesh the chief Minister not only did nothing but also declared that flu is not a disease. One of such handles with a twitter tick is Vivek Agnihotri. He normally spreads anti-Muslim content but this time he has prescribed a home remedy for corona and blamed congress for corona. People like Vivek Agnihotri are dangerous for society in such a situation. Their home remedy is going to give people false assurance and thus making them prone to disregard precautionary measure thereby getting them infected. Every person who liked his tweet is a potentially at threat.
What do you need to do?
You simply need to delete whatsapp and stop watching TV read authentic news papers/portals such as the_Hindu and the_wire, reduction in mobility should be one of the first priorities, avoid public places religiously specially Hospitals, eat nutritious food- fruit, meat and fish are good to add in your meal. You may hear some pseudo scientists justifying gau-mutra party and gobar-bath by saying your immune system will become robust if you expose yourself to cow dung and urine. Don’t believe them and maintain good hygiene (animal excreta is not good for health what so ever) bad hygiene will make your immune system exhausted and your body will become even worse at fighting corona infection. It is also a good time to quit smoking and drinking as both have an adverse impact on your immune system which should be the strongest at this time. Finally isolate yourself if you feel you have contracted the virus and contact central helpline +91–11–23978046 or email at [email protected]
As of today the number of confirmed cases has reached 109 increasing every hour. Most in Maharashtra (31) followed by Kerala (22). With two deaths of elderly people.

The Force Multiplier used by Indian Police! Is it true?
Let us first look at the following twitter thread was posted by Swati Goel Sharma who claims to be a swaraj newspaper reporter and former times of India reporter.
The thread says that police was using Hindus as force multiplier against the people who charged on them. It also suggests that police uses such force multipliers in anti-cow smuggling operations.
Let us understand what is force multiplier. According to military factory website of US department of Defense ‘a capability that when added to and when employed by the combat force significantly increases the combat potential of that force and thus enhances the probability of successful mission accomplishment’. The above definition is a military definition and there is also a general definition ‘increase in set of tools and skills of a person that enhances her capability’. Though the term has been used conventionally in context of combat forces. The key word here is a capability which can be a tool or a skill. For example a hammer is a force multiplier and karate training is also a force multiplier, both of these enhances a person’s capability while former is a tool and later is a skill.
In general terms an MBA degree or a technical training is also a force multiplier.
The term force multiplier has been used in India in past. The union of India and Chhattisgarh government in case Nandini Sundar & Ors vs State Of Chattisgarh a 2011 civil suit used the term in context of special police officers. The Chahhtisgarh Govt with the agreement of union of India formed Salwa Judum, an armed militia of local tribes, to combat Maoist/Naxalite activity. These persons were termed as special police officers. A two judge bench of supreme court decided that it is severe violation of fundamental rights of those employed as ‘special police officers (SPO)’, ensured by article 14 and 21. Such an employment exposes the so called SPOs to grave danger of life. The term force multiplier appears four times in the judgement in para 30, 33 and twice in 74.
The supreme court in the judgement also raises concern over it’s adverse effect on society, current and prospective. Considering the current developments in Indian judiciary, such as clear judgments of lower courts getting an stay order by supreme court if the former court decided against the party ruling in center. In future it is possible for us to see this judgement getting overturned by a bigger 5 judge or 7 judge bench. We are seeing people viewing supreme court as a defender the government and not as the upholder of the constitution.
If we take the tweet of this swaraj news reporter as something to be credible there are several grave concerns that could be raised. The tweet first of all suggests that police has gone against the 2011 judgement of supreme court and second the name riot is the wrong word for this, crackdown or pogrom would explain the situation better. The tweet despite suggesting the above also explains many things from past incidents such as why many persons with no uniform or name badge just police protection kit and a baton were seen during Jamia and UP crackdowns, why the attackers in JNU were escorted by police and left lose, why komal sharma (one of the JNU attackers) is still not arrested, why Kapil Gujjar got such an easy bail despite possessing illegal weapon and using it to threaten people with life, why police was standing idle when Rambhakt Gopal was pointing and later fired a gun at Jamia students, why police has been seen helping Hindu rioters in burning, killing and destroying Muslims and their property, why some witnesses report police directing rioters to Muslim homes, and why police have arrested mainly Muslims post Delhi riots despite it was clear that Hindus were the rioters? The answer to these questions are pretty simple according to this tweet, they all were force multipliers not rioters. The objective of the mission was to break down the protests and radicalized Hindus served as a tool to enhances the probability of successful mission accomplishment.
If we go a bit into past we will see we will see cases of police arresting people for alleged cow smuggling who were already beaten up severely by cow vigilante some times these people died while taking the beatings. This violates article 14 and article 21. In several media reports national and international we have seen these cow vigilante taking honor in this crime on video and police accepting their help. It is obviously a violation of article 14 and 21 but such acts also suggests almost nonexistent sense of constitutionality in the law enforcement agency. Let alone constitutionality even sense of justice is absent. Another similar case as published by Scroll suggests that despite 2011 judgement the police in Uttar pradesh is recruiting Police Mitras translated to Police friends. These friends have similar status as that of SPOs. They are recruited from local communities. They were also used during Anti-CAA protests. It becomes even worse when the recruitment is done from a Hindu extremist organisation Hindu Yuva Vahini. This is called arming the majority against minority.
Some readers may think this is a good news for Hindus and they are safe, then think again. There is always a collateral damage no matter who is the aggressor. If the tweet is true then the police have exposed Hindus to danger of life as every one who is being attacked have a natural right to defend himself in that she may attempt to kill the attacker if threatened by life and property this explains many Hindu deaths. The more dangerous implication is that it instills distrust, fear and anger in members of minority community which can have far worse implications if a country is populated by 20% citizens belonging to religious minority community the largest among them is Muslims constituting 17%. If today the police is using this force multiplier against religious minority tomorrow it may use the same against other minorities which may be caste, ethnic, linguistic or cultural minority.
As swaraj has been representing the point of view of current regime and is seldom critical of government. This tweet is being taken by many as a fact and a reason behind such police inaction.
In the interview with the_wire the former commissioner of Delhi Police Mr Ajay Raj Sharma said the content that creates distrust towards police should be taken down from internet and social media as he says “it may create chaos” and he is true as people stop believing in the law enforcement system they would take law in their own hand. He also suggests that before doing this we must create trust worthy police which is only possible “if the police is insulated from politics”.
To many it sounds a bit too ideal as politics in India often try to command judiciary let alone police and in that to many people it seems fairly successful.
Cover-Ups by Indian Media, Police and Judiciary (Delhi Anti-Muslim Riots).
Note- some video links might be disturbing. So far 47 confirmed death have occured and many missing. Most missing are suspected to be dead floating in city drains.
The deserted streets:
This video shows the horror inflicted by Hindutva mob on Muslim locality. The streets, Shops, houses and schools were burnt to almost non existence. The Muslim inhabitants were killed, lynched or forced to leave the locality. The Hindu majority areas have become killing zones for Muslims. Media is claiming both sides are responsible and received damage but a close examination reveals that only Muslim properties were targeted and destroyed. A hindu owned school was also burnt because it was close to Muslim school and since Muslim owned school was named “Rajdhani School” that caused confusion in the trained mob leading to relatively less destruction in Muslim owned school. The actual target was Muslim owned school. Properties, from shoes to jewelry, worth crores of rupees belonging to the target community have been looted.
Why? and How? is exactly what everyone is asking. Though everyone knows the answer. When Akhlaq, Pehlu and Tabrez were lynched the politicians garlanded the criminals and people praised the lynchers on social media. The courts freed them despite clear video evidences and people praised the decision by chanting Bharat Mata Ki jai and Vande-Mataram along with jai shri ram in courtroom, as if lynching a Muslim is a patriotic act.
The blood lust advertised during Delhi elections by catchy slogans “Goli maro saloon ko” has worked perfectly in boasting the confidence of Hindutva blood thirsty mob. The soft appreciation that these slogans received from media, election commission and the courts of law has just made the hate recipe more delicious for Hindu extremists. Even after the riots mob can be heard raising slogan “Goli maro saloon ko” along with the famous Hindutva war cry “Jai Sri Ram” all around Delhi even in Rajiv Chawk. It is not that police doesn’t act, it does, by taking some of them in custody, patting their backs for this patriotic act and then releasing them after an hour or so probably teaching them tactics for how not get caught while spreading hate in the mean time. Such men when will go out in society and tell the story of police cooperation will make the hate grow even stronger and more difficult to tackle.While at the same time Kafeel Khan was kept in jail with fresh charges under non-bailable NSA after getting bail from court.
The Police Involvement:
Many Incidents and call records suggest police was fully involved in rioting and supporting rioters. Police have shown a face that was seen in many anti-Muslim riots in India. Thanks to social media we have video evidence against police administration this time. But reality is far worse than seen. Police not only vandalized but also also taunted Muslims who wanted the police to help them escape. Police personal said “You wanted Azadi, now take azadi” and others surrounding him started laughing. Jai Sri Raam is the war cry used by rioters and police alike. The fear has always been their among Muslims when they were coming out but the only thing that made Muslims come out is their fear of losing what they built in India from missiles for India to shoes for Indians but nothing was left unburnt in these riots with full co-operation of Police. Police personal have been seen beating almost dead riot victims and asking them to sing national anthem. One lady Police officer said Hindus are also dying so she do not care if some of these die. But thanks to article 33 no serving morally correct officer will speak and thanks to article 34 rioting police officers will get their acts indemnified. Kudos to Baba Saheb.
The Mosques with Hindu flag:
Hindu Flag planted on Mosque. Many more mosques have been attacked, burnt and damaged. Some are damaged to the point that it can crumble at any moment. Why? the answer is one date 9th november 2019 the day of Ayodhya Verdict. What happened on that day in supreme court has set a new standard in Indian society, judiciary and law enforcement. This standard makes a communal and numeric analysis before delivering the so called justice. The supreme court on that day showed middle finger to “sense of justice” while riding the strong saddle of majoritarianism.
The Ayodhya Verdict:
The Ayodhya verdict declared all acts of Hindus illegal from planting Rama statue to demolishing mosque. The verdict declared that it will not make the judgement on basis of faith. But yet is used powers conferred to it in article 142 of Indian constitution to give the disputed land to ram lalla. The mere declaration of a statue as a juristic person negated the declaration of non acknowledgement of faith while making judgement and giving away the property to it is essentially giving away the property to the persons involved in those acts which the supreme court declared illegal. The court also gave the responsibility to build temple to the government which is for now formed by the BJP which rose in power since 1992 all thanks to it’s involvement in Babri Masjid Demolition. The BJP ruled govt has done exactly what is expected for it to do i.e. it formed a trust headed by the main accused of illegal demolition of Babri Masjid, Nritya Gopal Das.
The last nail in the coffin of Muslim claim was the burden of proof put on sunni waqf board for failing to prove that Namaz were conducted in Babri Masjid Before 1856. Which in fact laughable for a history student with knowledge of the fact that before 1856 Muslim Nawabs ruled Awadh (Ayodhya).
Impact Of Verdict
The judgement it self and the followup of judgement have given a big push forward to the Hindu Supremacist agenda. Few negative conclusions can be drawn from the judgement. The first that Judiciary have acknowledged that Hindu religion is state religion, the second is that judgements will always be in accordance with the will of the communal majority, the third is that the burden of proof is on minority and last is that the judiciary have enough tools that it can use to favor the majority.
This push is exactly what has encouraged the illegal yet accepted and acknowledged act seen in the video. The CAA and NRC is already putting burden of proof on people but the supreme court’s Ayodhya Verdict is reiterated by Amit Shah again and again. Today (1st March 2020) Amit Shah in West Bengal rally have reiterated that “Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Budhists will not be asked to show any document. And no Indian Minority will lose citizenship if born out of Indian parents”. Which means that only Muslims will be asked to prove that they are born out of Indian parents obviously by showing documents of their parents and documents to prove that they are children of said person.
Why Indian Media is not reporting?
Some non-mainstream media houses such as the-wire have reported these incidents. But the mainstream media is silent over these incidents. Some mainstream media houses such as NDTV are misreporting the incidents by claiming both sides are responsible others are openly cherry-picking cases to blame Muslims. The whole matter of the fact is that Muslims were attacked, Killed, molested and raped but media houses are saying both sides are responsible.
Muslim women as young as 13 years old were molested and severely violated by Hindu men. The mainstream media is silent as if nothing like that happened. Thankfully she is alive to tell the horror we know not of how many such girls and women have seen such atrocities.
The mainstream media is busy reporting 400 knife cuts on Ankit sharma’s body and they are not getting their tongues tired of describing how horrible this act of violence was. How true is that is extremely questionable especially when we know how mainstream media is determined to defame protests by Muslims and Muslims on the whole. Wall Street journal reported that his brother said the rioters were chanting jai sri ram when they took him. Later Ankur Sharma denied and blamed Tahir Husain who himself was calling police to rescue him. With center and states filing cases of NSA and Sedition against Muslims and Media openly supporting such misuse of power. The confidence of Amit Shah and Modi is at all time high with the huge support of Hindutva goons online and on ground. The death of Rahul Solanki whose father accused BJP leader Kapil Mishra for death of his son have not been reported except for once by NDTV. Neither his name is being mentioned by Hindutva gang Online. Why is media covering things up?, because obviously no one wants their religion to be defamed and since Indian Media is owned and operated by Hindus why would they show reality when reality is going to defame their faith. Even morally praised journalists like Ravish Kumar have been playing balancing game and instructing protesters to not exercise their rights as it may provoke majority. This might be due to instructions recieved by Press Council of India controlled by central government in the name of restoring normalcy. And there goes the freedom of press.
How Hindus have been killed?
After Virat Kohli keeping beard has become a fashion and a statement. Many Hindus have been keeping beard, this has confused Hindutva goons into attacking Hindus as well. Remember how a Hindu owned school was burnt in the same way some Hindus have been killed and burnt. Even journalists like Manav Sushil who had beard was beaten when he said he is a Hindu he was asked to chant hanuman chalisa when he did so then also he was forced remove his pants. Other Hindus showed Humanity and tried to save fellow Muslims but were also attacked by mob obviously due to confusion, one such person is being called as supporter of terrorists by his neighbours. Some Hindu rioters were killed by Muslims in self defense because every riot victim would have natural right to self defense and to believe that “I will die but after killing few attackers”.
Case Of Tahir Husain:
In the mean time media got the footage of house of Tahir Huasain who was attached to a narrative that he planned for riots. Because his terrace had a few crates of stones and freshly prepared petrol bombs out of cold drink bottles. Since the house was also running a factory obviously many workers would have used bikes and nearby shops would have cold drink bottles. Those can be assembled in few minutes especially in riot condition. Looking closely at the video it becomes very clear that Tahir Husain’s home was not supplying those Petrol bombs and stones but using it to protect itself. Because of such prompt measures his home was left less burnt as compared to neighborhood Muslim homes which were captured by rioters and rooftops of which were being used to attack Tahir’s building. At one point a petrol bomb was thrown at the adjacent house.
The way Media is condemning Tahir Husain is as if they want Muslims to remain sitting ducks in riot situation while right wing openly gives fuel to hatred and rioting with full cooperation and support of Police.
Biggest Mistake of Muslims:
They believed in Bahujan and Dalit-Muslim narrative all because of opportunist politicians like Chandrashekhar Rawan. The reality if inspected properly shows that it was mostly Dalits who were out rioting and killing Muslims with clinical precision, except for some cases of confusion.
The question as an Indian I always have asked after every riot I have seen since childhood why did APJ Abdul Kalam made missiles for India why Abdul Hameed died protecting Indian borders? Probably to prove their patriotism which has always been questioned during India-Pakistan cricket Match.

Деревья теряют ценные декоративные качества с возрастом, в результате чего их листья становятся меньше и бледнее, а рост новых ветвей замедляется. Чтобы стимулировать рост молодых побегов, которые создадут новую крону, проводится антивозрастная обрезка.
- Деревья с плотным навесом и симметрично расположенными ветвями перенесли омолаживающую обрезку в предыдущие годы, уточнили в администрации города.
Агрономы также проводят санитарную обрезку. Они удаляют сухие, больные ветви, которые могут вызвать чрезвычайные ситуации.
Because of the corona virus in Chinese restaurants were forbidden to sit opposite each other
In anticipation of the large-scale resumption of the work of public catering enterprises in Beijing, local authorities issued a circular that strictly regulates the procedure for visiting restaurants. One of perhaps the most stringent rules published by the Beijing Department of Commerce is that visitors are not allowed to sit at tables in restaurants across from each other. At the same time, it is forbidden to place tables in institutions at a distance closer than one meter from each other. Serving visitors, the staff of the institution should control the density in the halls of the restaurant, regulating the flow of guests. At the same time, each client is required to take a measurement of body temperature with fixing the indicator in a special book, which also records the personal data of the guest (name, surname, phone number, gender, age).
In addition, all restaurants are ordered to regularly disinfect furniture. Tables, chairs, door handles and washbasin taps should be treated hourly with a special antiviral agent.
The metropolitan government also recommends that restaurants and cafes actively introduce cashless payment methods for treats, which reduces the risk of transmission through cash. This trend is already quite common in China, but now it will become even more entrenched in everyday life, the portal writes.
Catering enterprises suffered the greatest damage from the restrictions imposed by the authorities to combat corona virus; for almost two months they could not receive guests, working only on takeaway. Now, as the incidence in China decreases, the government is gradually starting to remove quarantine, but in large cities like Beijing and Shanghai, the risk of infection remains, so special rules continue to apply, the article says.
Жители новостройки в Омске разочарованы жизнью в доме.
Хозяева нового дома на левобережье Омска жалуются на постоянные проблемы связанные с домом, в котором они вынуждены проживать. Как сообщила Светлана Ярмолюк в общественной газете «ЧП Омск» в социальной сети «ВКонтакте», в новом доме на проспекте Комарова, 11, протекает кровля.
На фото и видеороликах жители показывают, что вода течет по стенам квартир, и все потоки вытекают у входа в дом. Эти потоки происходят постоянно, а также случались с момента ввода дома в эксплуатацию, сообщают жители Омска. Еще один житель несчастного дома отметил, что многие жители затопленных квартир покупали их в кредит и ремонтировали в рассрочку. Теперь они должны смотреть, как труд на глазах превращается в вечный поток, разруху и грязь. Коммунальные службы ничего не могут поделать с возникающими проблемами. Может не хотят, а может при строительстве не соблюдены соответствующие нормы, препятствующие возникновению данных проблем.
