India’s GM Mustard: An Increasingly Bitter Taste

Colin Todhunter

In a fair world, Aruna Rodrigues would be heralded as an incredible individual for her ongoing struggle to protect the socio-economic and environmental integrity of India. So says respected environmentalist, author and campaigner Leo Saldanha.

He adds:

Since 2005, she has tirelessly pursued a public interest litigation before the Supreme Court of India, in which she has made a case why India should not yield to pressures from mega agri-transnational corporations and certain sections of the Indian agricultural sector who are keen on promoting genetically modified organisms in farming.”

India’s apex regulatory body, the Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee, recently sanctioned genetically modified (GM) mustard for cultivation. This would be India’s first GM food crop, despite a public interest litigation (PIL) before the Supreme Court to prevent cultivation as well as the widespread rejection of GM mustard by farmers’ organisations.

Aruna Rodrigues, the lead petitioner of the PIL, has exposed in her various submissions to court that claims about yield increases through GM mustard to be completely baseless. She indicates how data has been rigged and manipulated and protocols have been severely compromised, and that the government and its regulators are parroting the false claims of the crop developers.

Thanks to the PIL, the Supreme Court put a stay on the commercial release of GM Mustard on 3 November 2022.

Independent experts who have looked at the biosafety data submitted by the crop developer at Delhi University have clearly pointed out that GM mustard has not been tested rigorously and adequately.

India is a centre for diversity for mustard and several high-level official committees have recommended against transgenic technologies in crops for which the country is the centre of origin or centre of diversity.

Various high-level reports have also advised against introducing GM food crops to India per se. These reports conclude that GM crops are unsuitable for India and that biosafety and regulatory procedures are wholly inadequate.

Rodrigues also played a leading role in preventing commercial cultivation of GM brinjal more than a decade ago. Her tireless efforts have been a thorn in the side of global agritech corporations and seriously compromised regulatory officials who have for the best part of two decades been trying to get GM food crops cultivated in India.

There is much at stake.

India has a lot to lose, not least its food and seed sovereignty and contamination of its crops as well as the risks genetically modified organisms (GMOs) pose to human health.

The industry has much to gain.

Global biotech corporations like Bayer and Corteva are seeking to increase their control over the future of food and farming by extensively patenting plants and developing a new generation of GMOs.

They seek to claim all plants with those genetic traits as their ‘invention’.  Such patents on plants would restrict farmers’ access to seeds and impede breeders from developing new plants as both would have to ask for consent and pay fees to the biotech companies.

According to an October 2022 report, the global GM crop and seed market is projected to reach $46 billion by 2027. That is up from an estimated US$30.6 billion in 2020. The US market is estimated at $8.4 billion, while China is forecast to reach a projected market size of US$10 billion by the year 2027.

Key global players include AgReliant Genetics LLC, BASF SE, Bayer Crop Science, Canterra Seeds Holdings, DLF Seeds & Science and Corteva (Dow/DuPont).

If India succumbs to pressure, that figure of $46 billion by 2027 could be much larger. With 1.4 billion people, India represents a massive financially lucrative cash cow.

For instance, Goldstein Research pushes pro-GM industry talking points and laments about resistance to GM food seeds as it is hindering the growth of India’s GM seed market. Even so, it forecasts that the Indian GM seed market is set to reach US$13.1 billion by 2025 (cotton is the only legally sanctioned GM crop in India at this time).

GM mustard is regarded as a pioneering food crop in India – it would open the floodgates for many other GM food crops that are in the pipeline under a veil of secrecy, including wheat, rice, brinjal and chickpea.

But – it seems – genuine science stands in the way. GM mustard is unwanted, unneeded and fails to stand up to scientific rigour.

Maybe that is why, in December 2020, the Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) prevented serving and former public officials from expressing any opinion or writing any article on the approval to release GM mustard. This is a ‘gag order’ and an attempt to close down debate on the matter and to keep the public in the dark on the issue.

Trade and agriculture policy specialist Devinder Sharma says that silencing scientific voices indicates there is more to hide than reveal. He says that every claim that the ICAR makes about GM mustard can be challenged. And it has been – in court. Sharma adds that the US is placing tremendous pressure on India to embrace GM crops.

In finishing, let us turn to where this article began – with Aruna Rodrigues.

Leo Saldanha, who is mentioned at the start of this article, is forthright on the Change.org website in condemning a recent attack on Rodrigues.

Due to Rodrigues, Saldanha says the Supreme Court has time and again questioned the enthusiasm with which the Indian government and several public institutions have collaborated, questionably and controversially, in promoting GM foods and crops.

Just before Christmas, however, Aruna Rodrigues was unexpectedly forcibly evicted from her ancestral home by the Indian army. The Defence Estate Office is the custodian of all military properties of India and is required to secure such properties by following the due process of law.

Saldanha notes that Rodrigues’ home has been with her family from 1892 – legally secured via proper sale deeds. But about 27 years ago, the Defence Estate Office made a claim on the house. This claim was challenged, and the matter has been in court since then. Consequently, any action against the occupant should be only through due process of law.

On 20 December 2022, a court ruled that Aruna Rodrigues has occupation rights to the house. Yet the Defence Estate Officer moved into the house with army personnel – without any court directive – and physically removed her and threw the contents of the house onto the street. Within hours, a court ruled in Rodrigues favour. By then, however, the damage had been done.

As Saldanha says, we can only wonder whether any of this is connected to Rodrigues’ case before the Supreme Court. Given the billions of dollars at stake for the global agritech companies, it would indeed be wise to wonder.

“News” coverage is currently working to tell people that the health service is now gone and we are on our own. It is becoming less necessary to even read these little (actually quite big to generate an illusion of substance) essays of doom. It is enough to note that the latest scary story from the BBC links to an article called: “Covid putting massive pressure on NHS”. That they are still so nonchalantly trying to pass covid off as an actual thing gives the game away. But it gave the game away 3 years ago and yet here we still are.

I’m from India. The darkness eventually will have its way in India. Now its the drama phase. We had Bt.Cotton, this way.

The vegetables in India is already hyper hybridized, pesticide, herbicide and are using super phosphate fertilizer. There is no life in Indian food, that is the reason, the government do not want Indians to take booster shots, because we are so weak, we would all drop dead in a month.

As western conspiracy truthers often say. This is just a ritual phase. They need to tell you, we are about to grow GM mustard before actually doing it.

In my 45 years in India. I have never seen WE WON – Come back after one year, GM mustard will be all over in India. If they can make slaves of the west, and China ….then do not expect much from India dude.

Damar Hamlin reportedly had TEN MINUTES of CPR on the field, which seems to indicate that his brain was w/o oxygenated blood for that long. Unlikely the brain can recover from such an insult. We are unlikely to find out whether he was vaxxed.

I’ve misplaced the comparative statistics of deaths on the playing field. (pre & post-vaxx) Anybody have them handy?

Multiple sources confirm that Hamlin was vaccinated. For example, the team boasted of being 100% vaccinated. I also heard from an NFL coach that he was vaccinated. I’ve heard that there were only two players on the team who were known to be unvaccinated: Josh Allen and Cole Beasley. –says Steve Kirsch a little bit contradictory.

However, NFL is receiving money from US administration program to encourage vaxxing, so the fix is in as far as objective info from the NFL.

Best coverage I’ve seen is a more detailed, researched report by Peter McCullough:

I hpe Damar somehow beats the odds.

Somebody needs to spend the next several years (because that’s how long it would take) researching the number of athletes felled after being vaxxed versus the number per year of athletes felled before the mRNA vax appeared.

It probably wouldn’t take more than several hours discovering how many athletes went down before the vax. But it would take years managing to discover how many went down after being vaxxed.

Those who get people to vax do have a way of covering their tracks, don’t they?

Maria is not exposing contamination in the product, which i suggested (30 December) would be the explanation politicians et al would blame for the injuries & deaths from The Jab, when they acknowledge those injuries & deaths and suspend The mass Jab program…She provides other reasons politicians et al can use for suspending the program…
If polls begin to show more and more people believe The Jabs are dangerous politicians will suspend the program…Blaming contaminants, or the lack of quality manufacturing Maria details, will be seized on by politicians to excuse themselves of any blame…That’s what politicians do,,,

And what about the pesticide treadmill?

Dr. Seidler: The massive continuing use of genetically engineered Bt toxin and glyphosate-based weed killer on crops planted on hundreds of millions of acres for nearly 20 years has selected for insect and weed resistances. These resistances were anticipated by many scientists, including by Dr. Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring, a landmark book published in 1962. The chemical industry’s answer to these resistance problems is to genetically engineer crops to be resistant to other chemicals, leading to the pesticide treadmill. One chemical leads to the next chemical, and the next, etc. The current result of this strategy is to use paired combinations of herbicides on our food crops, including 2,4-D, Dicamba, Glufosinate, Isoxaflutole plus glyphosate-based chemicals.

Some people have expressed concerns about possible synergistic effects from the use of two herbicides together, that they might be stronger than each individually. I believe that regulatory scientists did not require industry to evaluate the combined effects of paired herbicides. It would be appropriate to see toxicology risk assessments conducted with chemical products that will be sprayed onto our food crops with the actual commercial mixture being tested, not just tests on the so-called “active” ingredients.

The introduction of Bt Cotton in India led to catastrophic environmental results in every location “tested”. Indian farmers became ill from contact with the product, and price extortion by Monsanto and other criminal organizations led to loss of land and private ownership of same. Tens of thousands of Indian farmers chose suicide, as they were no longer able to support their families.

I’ve been looking around the ne[spoiler title=” “]t today looking for articles about the NFL, but I’m not finding much.

Where are all the celebrity covid doctors? Many of them have called for people to protest in some form or another this year. I’m sure they’ll say something like “we wanted to respect the player“, or “we wanted to wait for more information“, but I think it would be more respectful to the player if attention was brought to his injury. That way, effort could be made to address the cause of the injury.

There doesn’t seem to be much being said on it, until you look at the comments sections. On Breitbart, they put a comment counter on the headlines. There are twice as many comments on the NFL story than the closest article.
The comments I see posted across websites overwhelmingly equate Damar’s injury with the vaccine.

A couple of items of interest, and I have no idea if they’re true, are that the FBI has supposedly taken positions at the hospital, and that he took the vaccine 8 days ago.

The NFL network just reported that Damar is still in ICU.

I bet the Facebook and Twitter censors are working overtime today. Sparingly, I see attempts to equate the injury with the hit alone, but I don’t buy that one. You can watch just about any NFL game for the past few decades and see QBs getting helmets in their chests multiple times. In fact, the NFL has recently changed their rules to lessen QB hits because of injuries; can hardly touch them anymore. None of them had a heart attack.

India is a basket case.

I backpacked in India 40 years ago and I can still smell the corruption, moral and visceral.

My wallet was stolen on a train whilst I slept.

I went to the police when I arrived in Bombay station but I had to wait to report the theft whilst two burly policemen beat up a beggar with batons. His crime ? – probably begging too hard.

On another train in India I was treated to the delightful sight of middle caste Indians showing off to the sahib (me) by kicking the sweeper (Lowest caste).

I would like to think that 40 years have changed things and I think they probably have.

But not for the better.

The caste thing, India’s curse, will still be prevalent forcing the worlds of the haves and the have-nots even further apart.

The stinking slums will still be there; the people living there clean as a whistle and standing as tall as their glass ceiling will allow them.

And the stinking rich will still be kicking the sweeper and looking to the sahib for approval.

In the old days, it was necessary only to buy the land and to farm it in order to have a crop to sell.
but with the advent of patent and copyright monopolies, it is no longer necessary to own the land to make a profit from farming. Merely patent the seeds the farmer uses to produce the product makes the owner of the patent and copyright the beneficiary of any profit to be made. The farmer will still need to do the planting, fertilizing, harvesting and selling but now the farmer will need to pay a royalty to the owner of the copyright and patents that cover the seed and methods used to fertilize and grow the crops. Government research programs paid for the research the big guys used to develop the seeds and technology that the same government gave to the owners of the patents and copyrights. Patents and copyrights are global monopolies.

So farmland and the risk of farming becomes irrelevant to the big corporations that own the technology patents, seed patents and copyrights. The big corporations will get paid when ever a farmer uses the seeds, fertilizes the crop or sells the crop made from the seed.
This is a good example of how patents and copyrights allow big corporations to act as nation states and conduct their business as imperialist reaching deeep into the affairs of the nation of India and into the affairs of the farmers in India. Big guy International patents and copyrights cross all national boundaries.

Ocean Tom in August 2021 announced that 90% of the assets of these global corporations are intangible assets(copyrights and patents <=paper tigers) and that only 10% of their assets are physical assets. Copyrights and patent allow big guys to conduct legalized theft IMO.

O/t but interesting I think.

Lots of people especially in the coding industry panicked about AI / ChatGPT right now and its ability to put them out of a job.

It is impressive especially around coding and automation. It will be a very useful tool at least while the process of putting large groups of people out of work is in transition.

However according to the AI JFK was killed by a lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald who (was observed no less!) shooting from the 6th floor of TSBD. Has this as later confirmed by both the WC and 1978 US HSCA.

When challenged over this and it omitting the fact that the HSCA actually confirmed a likely conspiracy it admitted it should have mentioned it and profusely apologised!

Also omitted mentioning Admiral Byrd’s first hand reporting on whether there are any strange structures in Antarctica when asked.

The small stuff looks very impressive but for the wider topics it seems to reference basically wiki for the bigger picture. So in terms of what it knows quite limited and very much within the MSM narratives.

If you need a coding project done for a school project or even a business venture this would be a very good source to have but definitely not the font of all knowledge. It seems very confused about gravity and the atmosphere on a globe among other things.

The point was not to discuss the merits or otherwise of findings reportedly discovered in Antarctica – the point I was trying to make was regardless of the hype or fear around AI its ‘thinking’ aligns perfectly with current MSM orthodoxy on JFK, the Moon Landings, globe theory, 911 or even Antarctica.

I make no assumptions on the findings said by Byrd to have been found only that AI is currently dismissing them all pretty much as to be expected from any MSM outlet.

It’s not vaccine-related it was an impact injury causing the heart to stop beating, it had nothing to do with vaccines. If you take a hit like he did, very occasionally the shock causes the heart to stop.

Sure, but in terms of football collisions, it didn’t look all that extreme to me. I was actually very surprised. He stood up, wasn’t clutching his chest, didn’t seem winded or otherwise bothered and suddenly collapsed, dead. Yes it can happen rarely, and it’s wrong to assume it must be an unnatural death, but it is very unusual I’d say.

European Football players collapse die heart failure. Sportsman die period. You could say extremely rare nowadays as in a Grand Prix driver because of The Sport. Reaction to a UK news paper is only interesting because of an American Football player died.
Why is that actually. The Game is being overhauled to encourage Young Americans to enjoy the game more, under Health safety measures is one reason. Another could be to transform it into more World wide appeal as for example, Rugby.
More likely it’s a Propagandist Promotion example of World Corporation Banking News.

Probably climate change or fear induced collapse from listening to anti vaxers.
That or the referee’s whistle perhaps…

It is incredible that the entire media has shadow banned the words, Damar Hamlin & vaccination in combination……incredible coordination, when it should be at the top of every search with hundreds of articles…me thinks they have something to hide and are working hard to hide it.

You are wasting your time here. With your incredible diagnostic ability – able to accurately determine cause of harm while being on a different continent – you should be working for top end medical concerns, not putting down blithering fools who keep trying to rely on their experience and critical thinking abilities.

Even a coroner with integrity might not be able to determine with certainty that a jabbed person’s sudden death was caused by the jab. So none of us sitting in the bleachers watching the story on a mass-media Jumbotron can authoritatively insist that the jab did it.

OTOH, the jab-exculpating “it had nothing to do with vaccines” has become the knee-jerk mantra for a plurality of vested interests: government officials, healthcare institutions, and commercial (Big Pharma) jabmongers. It’s definitely long since become a “deny first, ask questions later… or not” reflex.

Thus, a novel sub-genre of “health news” articles, announcements, and videos have sprung up like mushrooms in a meadow after a spring rain. All of them are variations on a theme of “little-known causes of cardiac and circulatory failure”. We’re solemnly informed that, unfortunately, the public simply doesn’t realize that commonplace, quotidian, minor conditions and events can trigger serious, even fatal, cardiopulmonary and circulatory trauma.

It turns out that anything and everything from a hard sneeze to overly-vigorous flossing, or even too-quickly passing from a cold to a warm environment (or vice-versa) can, and does, cause otherwise healthy persons to keel over. 

The common denominator, or theme, to this surge of New! Improved! medical news is that it assumes, and reinforces, the assertion that “it had nothing to do with vaccines”.

One insidious feature of this denial is that it’s understandably readily embraced by the jabbed– both True Believers and vaccine enthusiasts who couldn’t wait to get the salvific injection, and those who reluctantly submitted to it, willy-nilly, as a result of some form of coercion.

I’ll haul out my anecdotal interlocutor, M., again: M. got the jab against her wishes and better judgment because it was required in order for her to resume in-person visits with her husband, a care-facility resident suffering from advanced MS. 

M. has since claimed that she also got at least one “booster”, but then decided that she wasn’t going to risk further jabs, come what may. Even so, she is quick to reject, or at least doubt, the likely cause-and-effect relationship between the jabs and sudden grave illness or death. I don’t blame her, because it’s natural to seek explanations that muffle the sound of the Grim Reaper’s footsteps closing in.

In summary: maybe the jabs are causing these sudden major health issues, maybe not. But “it had nothing to do with vaccines” is the current version of the boy who cried “Wolf!”– except now he would cry “No wolf!”

Watt also had a health scare during the season that may have given him some vital perspective. Watt ended up in the hospital just weeks before the birth of his son due to an episode of atrial fibrillation that required doctors to shock his heart back into rhythm. He ended up playing that week, recording three tackles in a 26-16 win over Carolina.

When was his atrial fibrillation originally diagnosed? So was this before or after his “safe and effective” vaccination?

Once again the Mafia nature of the deep state is revealed. As for GM mustard being unwanted, unneeded and failing to stand up to scientific rigour, it is clearly wanted and needed by the overlords. And we should hold a two minute silence for “scientific rigour”, if anyone in the post-covid world even recalls such a concept.

One of the grimmest ironies in all this is that John McMurtry was one who continually spoke out against both the 9/11 and the GM scams but was also one of the first dupes to fall for covid. Thanks, John!
