Can Rahul rescue the Congress?



The message from the Congress’s Jaipur convention wasn’t as much about Rahul Gandhi’s elevation – which was a long-due formality – as about the party’s bid to reach out to the increasingly restive urban middle class.

Congressmen competed with each other to shower sycophantic praises on Rahul and his ability to steer the party in the 2014 elections. But they must realize that charisma is just one element in the rather complex process of winning back alienated constituencies. No General can win a war without a cogent plan and committed foot-soldiers.

Governments can formulate policy. But its propagation and effective implementation isn’t possible without robust organizational machinery. And this is one area where the Congress lacks in key states so crucial for returning to power at the Centre. Rahul failed in Bihar and UP because he entered the battle field without a well-oiled army of party workers.

So rather than scratching each other’s backs and celebrating Rahul’s anointment as Sonia Gandhi’s number two, they better get down to doing serious work on the ground. The process is time-consuming and the gap between now and the Lok Sabha polls too short. The challenge is in taking the Jaipur declaration from the drawing board to the ground.

Can the Congress do it? I will refrain here from pre-judging Rahul. Young leaders need to be given the benefit of doubt, no matter to which party they belong. But the Congress, as the country’s oldest political party, enjoys no such concession. It must rise in full force, not as much in search of power as to recover the credibility it has lost with its constituents.

Austerity, humility, honesty and accessibility are the attributes people don’t find in the political class these days. Congressmen are doubly alienated for they have been in power for over eight years and cannot escape the blame for rising popular frustration and anger.

Rahul started well by seeking to neutralise a possible ‘young versus old divide’ by assuring adequate respect, opportunity and accommodation for the old guard while ushering in the new order. His young team will need guidance from their seniors at every other tier of the organization in as much the same way he himself requires the canopy of Sonia’s experience.

Elections due in nine states before the big fight in 2014 will the test of their ability and commitment. They have to give – as has been promised by Rahul – their all to the party and the people of India.

    Rahul is an idiot whose time has come because we Indians are idiotic.

    Vinod Sharmaji, can you tell us some original idea of his, which can inspire India?

    I think if he is asked to sing the national anthem, he will probably sing “God Save the King”

    Or maybe god save the queen– queen of course being Mummy Sonia.

    A PARTY WHICH IS PRAISED BY NONE OTHER THAN HAFEES SAEED, has a home Minister who tried to tar all Hindus by calling them terrorists. An imbecile, whose claim to the big seat is just his low IQ and complete sycophancy.

    Rest of the COngressmen are just sycophants who will do anything for cash and kursi…

    You people are professionals. All professionals and nationalists, including, muslim nationalists, nay, even impartial civil society of Pakistan and Bangala desh should unite and finish this fountain head of communalism, that is Congress. Sounding very harsh?? Yes, Shinde has crossed all the limits. Every educated, liberal person in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, should take a vow, to finish this cancer, and by extension, congress. My anger know, no limit. Parliamentarians should not allow, parliament to function. lawyers should initiate PIL in supreme court. Police and Military should not salute this deshdrohi. Doctors should not treat him.Teachers should not teach his family members.Shokeepers should refuse to sell him goods. Administrative staff, should refuse to carry out his orders and maintenance staff, including Safai karamchari, should not clean his house and surroundings. he should suffer like Ashwthama, neither living nor dead.

    ndia’s Narendra Modi and the Tale of Two Rapes

    By Shikha Dalmia Jan 17, 2013 7:42 AM PT

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/...

    One of the most obscene moments after the death of the gang-rape victim in
    New Delhi was a tweet by Narendra Modi, the chief minister of the Indian state
    of Gujarat, offering regret and condolences to the dead woman’s family.

    Modi,
    who has quelled restive minorities by allowing attackers to
    subject
    women to unspeakable horrors, has done more than any man to numb
    his
    prudish country to sexual violence. Yet he was elected to a third
    term
    last month and is the presumptive front-runner of the Bharatiya Janata
    Party, the main Hindu opposition party, for prime minister in next year’s
    national elections.

    So
    long as Indians keep rewarding politicos such as Modi, the
    country’s
    collective outrage after the New Delhi case won’t change the
    culture that makes such atrocities common in India.

    The attack on the 23-year-old physiotherapy student was depraved.
    Five men
    and a teenager in a private bus are accused of kidnapping,
    beating, raping
    and violating her with an iron rod — and then dumping
    her and her
    semi-conscious boyfriend on a highway, where they also
    allegedly tried to run
    her over. But as monstrous as this crime was,
    consider what happened in
    Gujarat in February 2002, a few months after
    Modi assumed office.

    Organized
    bands of well-armed Hindus — some from groups tied to Modi’s
    party –
    fanned across the state seeking revenge against Muslims for
    allegedly
    burning a train full of Hindu pilgrims a few weeks earlier. The
    Hindu
    rioters systematically sought out and destroyed Muslim homes and
    businesses, killing more than 1,000 people.

    Extreme Violence

    Muslim women were singled out. According to many Indian and foreign sources,
    including a Human Rights Watch account and a report by
    an international
    research team called “Threatened Existence: A Feminist
    Analysis of the
    Genocide in Gujarat,” women were stripped, gang-raped,
    often publicly, and in
    almost all cases then burned or hacked to death.

    The
    reason the violence reached such extremes was that the state
    police
    stood back and didn’t intervene to stop the Hindu attacks and even
    told
    victims that it couldn’t protect them. As if the bloodletting
    wasn’t
    horrific enough, Modi subsequently dismantled the shelters constructed
    by private organizations for dispossessed Muslims, calling them “child-breeding
    centers.”

    Compared
    with the New Delhi rape, which has triggered a protest movement
    in
    India calling for the castration and execution of the suspects,
    the
    Gujarat rapes and pogrom elicited barely a whimper. Many Hindus
    either
    deny that the horror even occurred or, if they accept it, claim
    it
    wasn’t as grisly as news accounts suggest. And if they believe
    the
    accounts, they say Muslims had it coming. Fewer than 100 out of
    the
    thousands accused — among them only one state minister and one Bharatiya
    Janata Party leader — were convicted,
    and that was a decade later. Modi
    himself was exonerated.

    Whatever
    public disgust there was against him has dissipated, given the
    stellar
    economic growth that Gujarat has seen on his watch. Business leaders
    and
    corporations, from India and overseas, turn a blind eye to Modi’s
    role
    in allowing the bloodshed, and praise his economic stewardship.
    His
    business backers have already managed to
    get the U.K. government to
    reverse its long-standing ban on him and to
    give him a visa. Now they are
    trying to persuade the U.S. government to
    follow suit.

    What accounts for the wide gulf in the Indian public response to the single
    crime in New Delhi and the mass crimes in Gujarat?

    On a positive side, attitudes toward women have evolved considerably
    since
    the Gujarat atrocity 11 years ago. Indian women’s aspirations
    and
    opportunities have increased, especially in big cities, and they
    are
    demanding that the governing classes keep pace and create an
    environment
    in which they are free to move around safely.

    Changed Attitudes

    After
    the New Delhi attack, any politician or even religious guru —
    no
    matter how revered — who suggested that women need to
    circumscribe
    their lives and choices for their own protection was condemned
    and
    lampooned, something scarcely imaginable when I was growing up in
    New
    Delhi (in a Hindu household) in the 1970s.

    But
    the darker reality is that the young woman’s rape and murder
    outraged
    the country’s Hindu urban middle class because it was a random
    and
    senseless act that could have just as easily victimized their
    daughters.
    Not so with attacks on the Muslim women in Gujarat. The
    premeditated
    and programmatic violence against them meant that the broader
    Hindu
    majority was insulated from it. If the New Delhi woman’s fate made
    every
    Indian feel more
    vulnerable, the attack on the Muslim women made
    Hindus feel more secure.

    There
    are other reasons for India’s apathy toward Modi’s misdeeds. India
    is a
    democracy and has its share of human-rights activists and
    watchdog
    groups keeping an eye on government brutality. Yet the public at
    large
    has little appreciation of the dangers associated with overly
    muscular
    government. Indians complain constantly about government dysfunction
    and
    corruption. Yet they have little compunction about giving
    draconian
    powers to their rulers in the name of security. The upshot,
    tragically,
    is that Indians care less about state-fueled rape than when
    perpetrated
    by individuals.

    The
    scale of the sexual violence in Gujarat was unprecedented in India.
    But
    smaller episodes are a matter of routine. The Indian army has been
    accused of using rape as
    a weapon to crush secessionist movements in Kashmir
    and Manipur. After
    one particularly heinous case eight years ago, Manipuri
    women stripped
    naked and stormed the army headquarters with placards
    plaintively
    protesting: “Indian Army Rapes Us.”

    Tolerating
    sexual violence for any purpose erodes the overall stigma
    against it,
    opening a moral space where hoodlums can run amok. The lack of
    national
    outrage against the mass rapes perpetrated under Modi reduces their
    true
    cruelty, breaking down the psychological walls that would at
    least
    prevent nonsociopaths from going on a rampage. Hindus who turn a
    blind
    eye to the rape of Muslim women can’t ultimately protect their own.

    How
    India can restore moral boundaries is a difficult issue, but
    it
    certainly won’t be solved by electing Modi to higher office — even
    if
    he were Adam Smith himself. Protesters shouldn’t just seek justice against
    the six accused in New Delhi. Modi, too, has much to atone.

I am totally against violence perpetrated on weaks. Rape is violent most crime, in my view. It should never go unpunished.
    My one advise to you. If you get a chance to see a movie :THE END OF WATCH- see it. In the begining it self, a voice says.. I am police… and what a beutiful statement it was. that is why we, in minority- feel so secure even amongst, majority whites. Looking for a day, when Asian countries can have police of such caliber.

George Bush came from a patrician background; but the candidacy was not given to him on a plate; he had to fight in the primaries and vanquish his opponents like Senator McCain .

    How come the PMship/leadership is given on a platter to the descendents of a single family in a country of 1.2 billion people? If that is what Indians want, couldnt you have kept the Maharajas in place?

    Can Rahul rescue the Congress?
    Ahem, why does it need rescuing. From what? From whom?
    Vinod says: “Rahul failed in Bihar and UP because he entered the battle field without a well-oiled army of party workers.”

    Splendid. So, no problem with the general; the problem is he did not have any soldiers to fight for him. Tsk, tsk. A matter that he has been trying to fix for the last 8/ 9 years- the only visible achievement has been his own passage into middle age without any addition to the brains or brawns of the YC.

    Says Vinod: “I will refrain here from pre-judging Rahul. Young leaders need to be given the benefit of doubt, no matter to which party they belong. But the Congress, … enjoys no such concession. to recover the credibility it has lost with its constituents.”

    Great. If Congress wins even 1 seat more than 100 (remember Chidu has already prepared the “we have an uphill battle” story), the credit will go to Rahul. Its inability to capture power (no one doubts it will lose in 2014) will be blamed on the poor Congis themselves.
    Now, what did the poor Congis do to deserve this? A leader like Rahul and an apologist like Vinod Sharma?

    I cant still believe how stupid and idiot Indians are? No one can save this country from East Italy (India) company under the rule of corrupt non democratic and pesudo secularist politics.

    I think the best country for you live is Pakistan or Bangladesh. I am producing the leader by supporting Narendra Modi at least Indian born and from a normal background not an anti Indian. Also if you want to count the PM then here you go _ Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi was going to be thanks to Dr. Swami she had to step down and now the amul baby. I think its better to live in British Rule rather than living in Italian mafia rule with journalist on pay role on congress party and listening to some anti indian writing.

    Indeed it is a welcome decision that Rahul Gandhi has been
    made as VP of Congress.This would make things easier for
    Narendra Modi to take on the Congress with full vigor.Anyway
    Jaipur meet was the closing session for UPA-II.Nothing has been
    achieved by this meet except an open invitation for BSP,SP,RJD.
    The voters have realised that UPA-II is the most corrupt Govt ever
    We had worse than Deva Gowda’s Govt.
    It is also expected that people are ready to vote for Narendra Modi
    considering his success formula and not for BJP as such.Hence RSS
    is expected not to meddle with NDA’s PM candidate.Also if Nitish walks
    out of NDA in Bihar, it will not have any adverse effect since he is likely to
    face anti incumbency.

So, americans, explore( billions of dollars expense, set up rigs, billions of dollars, train personnel, make their arreangement- billions of dollars). now, having invested so much, they will make profit. this is business. if saudi had enough trained man power, no need for americans to go there. they will just purchase Saudi oil in International market. period. when, I am trying to educate you, it is this GYAN.

    That gentle touch of playing badminton or Mom coming into the room and crying is fine. Rediffreports that Priyanka Vadra parachuted into Jaipur and altered the script in the speech to accommodate these emotional lines. Really nice! If one were to ask some intelligent men and women in the Congress to speak the truth I have no doubts they will admit that Rahul Gandhi is no leader material but they have no choice but to use the Gandhi name for votes. Nothing less, nothing more! And this guy wants to develop others as leaders. This guy who has lived a life bloopers so far. Someone who calls voters “beggars” and even clarifies that it’s not metaphor. On the same day as this speech, Sushil Shinde made the most stupid speech about “Hindu terror”. At the heart of the Congress, such men who hate Hindus are the ministers. Chintan indeed! I’m not sure if Justice Katju is right in calling 90% Indians fools, but I’m damn sure the Congress definitely thinks so.

    PANKAL,…Fear is gripping the White Western racists: Will the Christian
    Europe, with no Muslims till the middle of the 20th century, turn into a
    Muslim majority continent? The fear of Eurabia is bringing sleepless nights.

    This is the question raised by Christopher Caldwell in his latest book:

    Reflection on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam & the West, Doubleday, 2009, pp.422, $30, Allan Lane, 4.99 pounds.

    The American journalist after making a study of the European
    immigration says about 10% of the population in different European
    country is Muslim and 30% in big cities. The reason is Europe’s
    indigenous White Christian population is ageing fast and the Muslim
    immigrants are young and multiplying. And more than anything, they
    practice a powerful, dynamic and yet simple religion.

    How many crores did the Congress spend on the media to pump up such a non-event into the biggest celebration of recent times …the crowning of a donkey in a Party of flunkies… Shahnawaz Khan hit the nail right on its head when he asked when was he No 3 that. he has been made number 2.

    But the the events of that day did give a fair indication of the Congress strategy for 2014.to counter the cyclone to be unleashed by Namo . . Have Rahul Gandhi lead … but still not the lead the campaign. and Communalize the polity so that the Muslims are left with no option but flock to Congress. ..And if need be bring out the dead bodies of Indira Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi .
    So in the days to come .. we shall see the NIA giving more leaks on Swami Aseemanand and Pragya Thakur ….the Congress Party’s Hindu terrorists. More misuse of govt agencies against BJP and NAMO in particular .. get more cooperation from a Judge of the Supreme Court. And enrich the coffers of media houses .

    Surely the BJP and opposition are missing a grand chance of history. An opportunity on a platter. With Gadkari at the helm, the BJP would dare not attack Vadra whose loot and crony capitalism shames Marcos and Zardari.

    agriculture, industry and health care. Food warehouses, hospitals and
    markets were bombed …” Hoskins’ team asked themselves, “if these
    children are not the most suffering child population on earth.”
    A UN team called the devastation “near-apocalyptic.”

    Invasions are, of course, a tragedy – unless it is the US-EU-NATO’s
    slaughterfest, then it becomes “the Right to Protect, humanitarian
    intervention and of course, liberation.” Iraq’s actions towards Kuwait
    were complex and Saddam Hussein was led to believe his action was US –
    thus Western – sanctioned. Iraq was, in fact, subject of an epic
    proportioned, historic, stitch up.

    Academic, Dr Gideon Polya,
    author of: “Body Count – Global Avoidable Mortality since 1950,” calls
    Iraq’s subsequent plight a “Holocaust” and a “Genocide.” He is less than
    impressed by “liberations,” stating in the Preamble that his research, ”
    … documents the … avoidable death of 1.3 billion people since 1950
    on Spaceship Earth, with the First World in control of the flight deck.”
    That was up until 2007.

    A new nationwide
    opinion poll indicates that a majority of the people in the United
    States are cynical about the situation in the United States and its
    prospects for future.

    The survey,
    conducted by the Gallup on January 7-10, was based on nationwide
    telephone interviews with 1,011 American adults. Its results were
    released on January 22, 2013.

    The results showed that only 39 percent of the Americans
    rate the current status of the country as positive, which was about the
    same as in 2010, but lower since 1979.

    The poll also pointed out that only 48 percent of the participants
    are more positive about where the country would be in five years,
    marking the lowest rate since 1979.

    The opinion poll was released as US President Barack Obama began his second term in office.

    regarding rapes in india just read below how women are treated during anti
    muslim riot in india,

    Muslim women were singled out. According to many Indian and foreign
    sources,
    including a Human Rights Watch account and a report by
    an
    international
    research team called “Threatened Existence: A
    Feminist
    Analysis of the
    Genocide in Gujarat,” women were stripped,
    gang-raped,
    often publicly, and in
    almost all cases then burned or hacked
    to death.

    The
    reason the violence reached such extremes was that the
    state
    police
    stood back and didn’t intervene to stop the Hindu attacks and
    even
    told
    victims that it couldn’t protect them. As if the
    bloodletting
    wasn’t
    horrific enough, Modi subsequently dismantled the
    shelters constructed
    by private organizations for dispossessed Muslims,
    calling them “child-breeding
    centers

    The helplessness of Congressmen

    http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/randomaccess/entry/the-helplessness-of-congressmen

    The grand old party of India has finally formalized what was always known – that after Sonia Gandhi, it is her son who calls the shots and is the undisputed No. 2. The irony that Sonia herself is the wife of a former Prime Minister (Rajiv Gandhi), whose mother (Indira Gandhi) was a Prime Minister and whose father was independent India’s first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) is somehow always lost on the fawning Congressmen of all ages and shapes and sizes, who of course will insist their party is totally democratic and all these got to this position solely on merit and nothing else.

    TODAY IS THE 116TH BIRTH ANNIVERSARY OF NETAJI SUBHASHCHANDRA BOSE.

    The nation could not bring him back alive. Our government didn’t bring him back even dead.

    The congress government at the centre has done everything possible to make people forget Netaji, but his memory is as fresh as if he went away to an unknown destination only yesterday.

    His memory is etched in golden letters in the conscience of the nation.

    A GRATEFUL NATION REMEMBERS HIM ON HIS BIRTHDAY

    I strongly feel that, congress in particular and Indians in general, were so much naive. In the early years of our republic, that one after another, our national assets were snatched from us by inimical forces. There were many mysterious deaths/ disappearances of our heroes. Homi Bhabha, a visionary, one of the great nuclear scientist of his time, was killed in a plane crash. He was ahead of his times, and, when, China had no clue about nuclear power, he offered to build one for Nation. Enemies, silently, silenced him. Deen dayal, mysteriously killed, Netaji, just disappeared. In current times, media, over taken by people, inimical to country and some how, successful persons, if women, get married to a non descript, muslim.
    still, our polity is unaware of this silent robbery of this nation. present set up, anywhere, where power and money is involved, is going away from nationalists and falling in hands of doubtful people. Scenario is ghastly. WHY PEOPLE CAN NOT SEE IT??

    yes, there is palpable feeling of having been cheated among the Hindu populace which went along with this maa-beta sarkar for eight years.

    It is not guaranteed any more that the Muslim vote bank will act as such in 2014. For example, in UP, the votes may split three ways and the Hindu vote may still consolidate behind BJP candidates.

    The BJP, having realised very lately, did a smart thing by re-electing Rajnath Singh. There is visible elation among the rank and file at the exit of Gadkari. Kalyan SIngh’s return too is a morale booster.

    I recall an earlier blog by Vinod Sharma . on Omar Abdullah .. wherein he had hoped that Omar must succeed for the sake of Rahul Gandhi . That blog was written in the backdrop of serious problems which Abdullah was facing and which he appeared unable to handle . At that time the host’s sycophantic comments gave an impression that he was trying hard to enter the Clown Prince’s inner circle. From this blog it appears he has not succeeded and willing to express a more realistic assessment of the clown prince and the challenges before him.

    Vinodji seems to have yielded his perch to competitors like Kumar Ketkar and loud mouthed upstarts like Sanjay Jha.

    The fact that Vinodji speaks about Rahul being a general without an army speaks well about his new found desire to speak realistically. He has also called those present in Jaipur and loudly cheering congressmen as sycophants, which is a clear departure from his natural propensity to himself be one of the cheer leaders.

    This also may be why Pathakji is visibly invisible here.

    REVEALED: Why Rahul Gandhi is still a bachelor!Published on January 23, 2013by bwoyblunder

    Rahul Gandhi. India’s most eligible bachelor (before or after Salman Khan). And still unmarried, at 42 years. Faking News has set out to solve this puzzle by interviewing some Gandhi family members.

    First up, Rahul’s Mom, Congress Supremo, Sonia Gandhi:

    FN: Hello, Respected Supremo Soniaji. Can you tell us why does Rahul Gandhi not want to get married?

    SG: Please don’t call me that (Respected Supremo Soniaji). Its short-form is RSS, and I don’t want to be called a terrorist. Please call me Madamji. About Rahul, he is very willing to get married. All these allegations are baseless and politically motivated. In fact, he pesters us everyday to get marrried.

    FN: Then why is your family not getting him married? Surely girls are lining up for him.

    SG: Girls? Even guys are sending him love letters! One gay from Chandni Chowk, some Ankit, had recently tweeted his love for Rahul.

    FN: So why is there no marriage on the cards?

    SG: Well, we are waiting for a better dowry offer. You see, he recently got appointed as Vice President of Congress. Ever since that day, dowry offers have shot up tremendously. I gave him the post only to lure some families into contacting us for Rishta. You see, until the boy has a steady job, families don’t want to give their girls hand in marriage.

    Sonia Gandhi smiles after revealing her future plans

    Now, once we saw the spike in dowry, we realised that if we wait for a bit, we might extract even more dowry. As President of the party he will command more than double the current price. And if we get super lucky (crosses fingers, prays to God) and manage to come to power again, Rahul will be the Prime Minister. Then maybe we can get a foreigner bahu also. Obviously you know how India loovveess foreigner bahus (bats eyelids).

    FN: Thank you Madamji for this clarification.

    Next we talked to Robert Vadra, Rahul’s brother in law:

    FN: Hi Robbert, long time since our last interview no? Ok so this time we want to ask you, Why is Rahul Gandhi not getting married?

    Robbert: *Chuckles* Well you see, this is a part of my grand scheme. As you know, Congress is a dynastic party. The son/daughter of the current ruling family becomes the next Party leader. By misfortune, I was born a Vadra. By greater misfortune, I was a born a guy. If at least I was born a girl, I would have snared Rahul by now. But I got the next best thing, Priyanka.

    Priyanka is not interested in all this. But I am. And I want my children to give me the power I truly deserve. You see, if we marry Rahul off, the next Congress Leader will be Rahul’s child. What about my children? We sent them on stage in UP just as a trailer. So am making sure that they are next to get the top job, by ensuring that Rahul doesn’t get married.

    Robert Vadra’s wife and sons, reacting after listening to Rahul Gandhi’s speech.

    FN: But, Mr Vadra, the reins of the Party stay only in a Gandhi’s hands no?

    Robbert: WRONG! Look at their history! It was Nehru, then his daughter, then her children. Similarly it will be Rajiv Gandhi, then his daughter, and then their children. Muhahahahahaha!

    FN: That is indeed a shocking revelation Robbert, thank you so much.

    So there you have it folks, two startling revelations by Rahul’s immediate family. Which one do you believe is true?

    Osama Killing gets more shrouds

    Some Possibly Killed in Abbottabad Helicopter Crash Months Before

    By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

    Today 31 NATO troops, 22 of them Navy Seals from the Osama
    bin Laden operation died in what is reported as a helicopter crash in
    Afghanistan.

    The chances of this story being true is almost nil. The
    chances of this being a staged coverup is over 80%. We believe these
    people were murdered to silence them. This is why.

    We have solid information on two areas:

    Osama bin Laden died in 2001 as an active CIA employee and his body
    was recovered in Afghanistan and taken to “the sand box.” We were told
    it was frozen. We have so much verification from this, CIA, ISI, US
    military and top officials. I have a direct confirmation from Bin
    Laden’s CIA handler who I grilled mercilessly on this.

    The Abbottabad operation involved numerous American deaths,
    witnessed, bodies all over, a helicopter crash. These bodies were
    recovered by land vehicle from Islamabad and there was NO “successful”
    bin Laden operation of any kind. There was and has been a CIA safe
    house in Abbotabad where terror suspects were stored for years.

    Welfare Party on saffron terror: hopes serious
    action follows

    The
    Milli Gazette Online

    New Delhi, 23 January
    2013: The Welfare
    Party of India held here a press conference at the
    Delhi Press Club. Party Vice Presidents Dr Zafarul-Islam
    Khan and Maulana Abdul Wahab Khilji, General Secretary
    Dr SQR Ilyas and Secretary Dr Taslim Tahmani addressed
    the press conference and stressed that while the party
    welcomes Mr Sushil Shinde, Union Home Minister’s
    statement regarding the saffron
    terror, it remains to be seen if the Union
    government will show seriousness in prosecuting and
    arresting dozens of known saffron terrorists and their
    financiers and sympathisers. Much is known about this
    network since 2008 when it was exposed by the then
    Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare. If no serious
    action follows, people will be constrained to take it as
    an electoral gimmick. WPI leaders demanded the release
    of the Muslim youths incarcerated in cases which are now
    conclusively held to be part of the saffron terror.
    They also demanded reasonable compesnation to all those
    falsely accused who were acquitted by courts after years
    of unjust incarceration. Following is the press
    release issued on the occasion:

    New Delhi, 23 Janurary, 2013: The Welfare Party of India
    takes serious note of the statement made by Union Home
    Minister Mr Sushil Kumar Shinde at the Jaipur “chintan
    shibir” of the Indian National Congress that Sangh
    Parivar outfits were committing terrorism while putting
    the blame on minorities. Mr Shinde’s statement and his
    specific reference to the Samjhauta Express, Mecca
    Masjid and Malegaon blasts has been further corroborated
    by the Union Home Secretary Mr R.K. Singh while
    interacting with journalists in New Delhi on 22 January.

    The disclosures made by a senior Union Minister and the
    top bureaucrat of the Union Home Department surprised
    none as human rights groups, minority organizations and
    many political parties including the Left have been
    drawing the attention of the Union government for long
    to the “false flag” Hindutva
    terrorism which became crystal clear after the
    confessional statement of Swami Aseemanand who is
    currently under judicial custody in the Mecca Masjid
    blast case. What Mr. Shinde said is nothing more than
    the gist of the findings of the Maharashtra
    Anti-Terrorism Squad in 2008 under the veteran Police
    Officer Hemant Karkare, who was mysteriously killed
    during the Mumbai terror attack. What surprises many
    peace-loving, patriotic and law-abiding citizens of the
    country is: why the governments at the Centre and states
    are reluctant in taking correct, logical and strict
    actions against these elements even after so much
    information is in the public domain and in court records
    about these outfits’ terror activities. Why top Hindutva
    brass like Indresh Kumar and Praveen Togadia, mentioned
    in the Malegaon and Ajmer chargesheets, have not been
    summoned and questioned so far? Why searches still not
    made at Bonsala Military School in Nasik and Pune and
    Aakanksha Resort of Pune where saffron terrorists in
    their thousands were trained in making and exploding
    bombs? Why outfits like Abhinav Bharat, Sanatan
    Sanstha, Ram Sena, Hindu Vahini, Arya Sena and scores of
    Sangh outfits mentioned by the accused have not been
    touched?

    Welfare Party of India express its displeasure on the
    way Home minister announced this serious National
    Security Issue in the party shiver rather than convening
    an official press conference at his office and strongly
    demands the Union Government to constitute a high power
    commission to probe all terror cases since BJP came to
    power in states then at the Centre and bring out a white
    paper about all terror incidents and encounters in the
    recent past. Such a high-level probe is necessary to
    uncover the details of this terror network which was
    active in a very clever way so as both victims and
    accused were Muslims. Such a probe is also necessary in
    the light of serious disclosures made by the accused in
    the Malegaon blast to the CBI that Hindutva terrorists
    including named RSS functionaries had links with ISI,
    the Pakistani military spy organisation, and received
    funds from it.

    It is disappointing to note from the “clarifications”
    made by the party spokesman that the Congress Party
    instead of demonstrating a sincere and strong political
    will is succumbing to the pressure tactics of the Sangh
    outfits and is again resorting to the Soft Hindutva game
    it has played since 1980s.

    The Welfare Party wants to make it clear that it is the
    lethargic and spineless stand of the century-old grand
    party that gave the Hindutva forces political space in
    the country. We hope Mr. Shinde’s statement is not
    another political gimmick to garner votes in the
    forthcoming assembly and Lok Sabha elections.

    The Welfare Party expresses its severe disappointment
    that many innocent Muslim youths had to languish in
    jails for years on trumped up charges and on the basis
    of fake confessions extracted through torture. It is
    right time to revamp our inefficient and communalized
    Police and investigating agencies with a view to
    detoxify them and purge them from the clutches of biased
    personnel. The Welfare Party strongly demands adequate
    compensation to all the youths acquitted by courts after
    spending long years behind bars, asks the government to
    issue a public apology on behalf of the nation for the
    injustices committed against these innocent victims and
    to set up fast track courts for those who are still in
    jails, on the lines of courts constituted to deal with
    sexual assault cases. And before anything else, all
    Muslims youths still incarcerated for terror crimes now
    attributed to the Hindutva terrorists should be set free
    forthwith

    Premji says son Rishad will not be CEO of Wipro.
    IT czar Azim Premji has said his son Rishad will never be the Chief Executive of his company Wipro, but will represent promoter ownership on the company’s board. Rishad, 35, joined Wipro in 2007 as Business Head for Special Projects in the banking and financial services vertical and rose
    to become Chief Strategy Officer three years later.
    in contrast, rahul has been made VP, with clear ly understood message that he will be made PM. Lo and behold, whole bunch of seniors became emotional, started crying and nodding their heads, collectively and individually, for this sacrifice of Mother and Son.
    And these people will rule us??

    RSS better than Let, but not much

    The Union Home Minister’s “Hindu terror” comment may have triggered a war of words between the Congress and the RSS-BJP.

    But investigations by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) have revealed that at least 10 people who had links with the RSS or its affiliated organisations were involved in a spate of terror attacks in different parts of the country.

    Union Home Secretary R.K. Singh confirmed this on Tuesday and said that
    there was evidence against them.

    Secular India, Muslims (some ) making an a– of themselves.. They wanted to ban Jeet Thayyil from participating in the Jaipur festival because he read excerpts from Rushdi’s “Satanic Verses” !!!
    (btw Jeet is the son of the columnist TJS George)

    Also, Kamal Hasan’s “Vishwaroopam” is barred from statewide release in tamil nadu for two weeks until the court had a chance to review the movie/ Muslim groups have complained that the depiction of a terrorist (a bearded Muslim man) will hurt the feelings and create communal riot.

    JAi ho,

    Muslim groups go soft on Jeet Thayil

    Jaipur, Jan 23, 2013, DHNS :

    The Jaipur Literature Festival organisers
    heaved a sigh of relief as a few Muslim groups who raised objection to
    the the visit of author Jeet Thayil — who had read excerpts from Salman
    Rushdie’s banned book Satanic Verses during lit fest last year —
    softened their stand on Wednesday, saying they have no objection to his
    visit, provided he does not repeat his act.

    A
    delegation of Muslim scholars and representatives led by Qari Moinuddin,
    the convener of the recently formed ‘Azmat E Rasool’ foundation, met
    Jaipur Police Commissioner B L Soni and apprised him of their stand.

    The Azmat E Rasool foundation, formed on Tuesday night, is an amalgam
    of various Muslim groups here. They demanded that there be no act that
    hurts the sentiments of the community during the literature festival
    beginning on Thursday and sought directions by the police and government
    to organisers in this regard.

    The representatives of the
    community, till the other day, were up in arms against Thayil’s visit
    for hurting their sentiments by reading from the banned book last year.
    “We have no objection to Thayil’s visit because we were told by the
    police commissioner today that he had apologised for reading from the
    banned book last year,” Qari Moinuddin told media here.

    “Qasmani Arif…chief coordinator of the relations of the [LeT] with other organisations…has worked with Lashkar-e-Tayyiba to facilitate terrorist attacks including…the bombing of February 2007 in the Samjhauta Express in Panipat (India).” This is what resolution [No 1267] of the Committee on Sanctions of the United Nations Security Council [UNSC] dated 29.6.2009 declares. Adding that Qasmani was funded by Dawood Ibrahim and he did the fundraising for the LeT and the al-Qaida, the UNSC said, “In exchange for their support, al-Qaida provided support staff for the February 2007 bombing of the Samjhauta Express in Panipat.” This resolution is available on the UN site. Two days later, on July 1, 2009, the United States Treasury Department said in its press release: “Arif Qasmani has worked with the LeT to facilitate terrorist attacks, including…Samjota Express bombing.” The US named four Pakistanis, including Arif Qasmani as terrorists, under Executive Order No 13224. This press release is still on the US Treasury site. The United Nations Security Council and the US Treasury Department thus named the LeT, Qasmani and Dawood Ibrahim as accused in Samjhauta terror. This is just the beginning of the torrent of evidence pointing to the LeT and Pakistan.

    Pakistan Minister’s Confession

    Six months after the UN and US announced sanctions against the LeT and Qasmani, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Mallik himself admitted that Pakistani terrorists were involved in the Samjhauta blast, but with a rider that “some Pakistan-based Islamists had been hired by Lt Col Purohit to carry out the Samjhauta Express attack.” [India Today Online 24.1.2010]

    Mohan is not as regular with his jokes as usual; so, here’s something to lighten the mood from Allah’s own country.

    Recently the Saudi religious police, called the Hayya, stopped an exhibition of dinosaurs (as reported in the Economist). Why? No one knows. But, speculation is rife- (here’s a partial quote, for the full article see here:
    http://www.economist.com/blogs/pomegranate/2013/01/saudi-arabia

    Within minutes of the incident, a freshly minted Arabic Twitter hashtag, #Dammam-Hayaa-Closes-Dinosaur-Show, was generating scores of theories about their motives. Perhaps, suggested one, there was a danger that citizens might start worshipping dinosaur statues instead of God. Maybe it was just a temporary measure, said another, until the Hayaa can separate male and female dinosaurs and put them in separate rooms. Surely, declared a third, one of the lady dinosaurs had been caught in public without a male guardian. A fourth announced an all-points police alert for Barney the Dinosaur, while another suggested it was too early to judge until it was clear what the dinosaurs were wearing.

    Not a few tweets cast the incident in political terms. “Why close the show?” asked one. “It’s not as if we don’t see dinosaurs in newspapers and on TV and in the government every day.” “They should go after the dinosaurs who sit on chairs,” suggested another, seconded by a tweep who advised that dinosaurs in gilt-trimmed cloaks, the garment of choice for senior sheikhs, would make a better target.

    Several contributors injected bawdy innuendo into their comments. Noting that one of the displays showed a dinosaur riding on the back of another, one message declared that this was obviously sexually suggestive and possibly could be categorised as a Westernising influence. “I confess,” declared one penitent, “I saw a naked dinosaur thigh and felt aroused.” Another tweet provided this helpful tip to the suspicious CPVPV: “No, no, that long thing is a tail!”

    RSS, Bajrang Dal are not terrorist groups’

    The British government has said neither the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) nor the Bajrang Dal are terrorist organisations and their members are not banned from entering Britain. “The government do not consider the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh or the Bajrang Dal as terrorist organisations,” British Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Lord Malloch-Brown told the House of Lords.

    What else can you expect of RSS? Deception is their game.
    Look at their credentials as a nationalist party. Veer Savarkar their icon as a
    freedom fighter wrote a clemency petition to the British govt:

    “Now no
    man having the good of India and humanity at heart will blindly step on the
    thorny paths which in the excited and hopeless situation of India in 1906-1907
    beguiled us from the path of peace and progress. Therefore if the government in
    their manifold beneficence and mercy release me, I for one cannot but be the
    staunchest advocate of constitutional progress and loyalty to the English
    Government, which is the foremost condition of that progress… . Moreover my
    conversion to the constitutional line would bring back all those misled young
    men in India and abroad who were once looking up to me as their guide. I am
    ready to serve the government in any capacity they like, for as my conversion is
    conscientious so I hope my future conduct would be. By keeping me in jail
    nothing can be got in comparison to what would be otherwise. The Mighty alone
    can afford to be merciful and therefore where else can the prodigal son return
    but to the parental doors of the government? Hoping your honour will kindly take
    into notion these points.” Mark the words “loyalty to the English government.”

    This shows that Savarkar offerred to collaborate with the British. No
    Congress freedom fighter icon did. They never asked for clemency. Never offered
    to collaborate with the British

    The BJP needs to fire a canon at theiveing Vadra. The Cognress house of Gabbar Singh, Daku mangal singh and Bunty chors will collapse.

    The Congress cleverly used the CBI to trip Chautala ( a fellow chor himself) becasue he had exposed Vadra’s chori. The daku congress then shifted Ashok Khemka as he
    Probed Vadra’s chori.

    The BJP really needs to fire a canon at Vadra and all the loot of thousands of crores will come out and destroy this looting dynasty for ever.

    what is the guarantee Mr Sharma that Rahul would win in 2014? as he would face massive problems in UP , Bihar, West Bengal and Tamil nadu. situation for his party in Andhra pradesh is getting from bad to worse each passing day and even in Maharshtra congress cant allienate NCP that too after the death of Vilasrao deshmukh.

    Congress is in bad shape in around 280 or plus seats in the above mentioned states. i feel it would need near miracle for Rahul to work his magic.

    Interestingly, in his post (3rd para) Mr. Sharma observes:

    Governments can formulate policy. But its propagation and effective implementation isn’t possible without robust organizational machinery. And this is one area where the Congress lacks in key states…

    Is he suggesting that the implementing the govt’s policy is left to the organisational machinery of Congress??

    [Reply]

    Anonymous Reply:

    The numbers and logic prohibits Congress from getting a majority. Obviously, they will form partnership with maulyam. The key is whether Maulyam can win enough seats in UP — they have their “organization men” throughout the state, so they may be able to win, unless Mayawati can stage a comeback with BJP.

    Jaya will capture all the 40 seats in TN; Congress number will drop badly in AP, they may get a few more in Karnataka. Kerala has only 20 seats; they will win a majority because of the Muslim League alliance and the disarray among the left.
    Maulayam alliance and UP hold the key for congress;
    Jaya, Niavin, Nitesh etc hold key to BJP. There will be a delta impact if Modi is perceived as the BJP PM candidate; however, that may help only in growth oriented southern states, and may not have an impact in laggards like UP and Bihar

    Saxena sahab;
    I am feeling very thankful to you for providing that link for blog in TOI. I have not read an article of such intensity and humor since long time. I wanted to re[produce some part of it for our friends, but found it very diifficult to what to chose and and not. every paragraph is just superb. I will paste only two paras. i will also paste a couple of letters.
    …You said you felt optimistic. I understand why you would sir. I would too if I had a national party as a family heirloom, if I knew I would have an army of qualified courtiers watching my back, an army of guards clearing the road of commoners, and an adoring media to pump my ego. Yes. I would feel very optimistic then. About the future. My future. Which of course I would, using the royal pronoun, address as “our”.
    …You of course now take credit for unchaining the very dragon your line once bound, credit that rightfully should go to a man, a man from your very party who did try to make things right, imperfectly perhaps. I realize he is an usurper, a historical aberration, a Hemu in the line of Mughals. Hence he must be quietly forgotten and his legacy appropriated.

    Modi is most suitable candidate for PM’s post

    पीएम की दौड़ में राहुल पर भारी पड़ेंगे मोदी: सर्वे

    According to ABP News-Nielsen survey, many as 48 per cent respondents favoured Modi as PM while only 18 per cent wanted Rahul to take over the top post.

    Around 49 per cent say that they would vote for the BJP on the assumption that at the time of 2014 general elections Narendra Modi is leading BJP. Only 17 per cent are in favour of the Congress

    Read a real fantastic analysis of the Indian columnist Jawed Naqvi in OUTLOOK letters section. Jawed naqvi as many of us know is a jehadi who makes his living by

    selling his sould for writing Engrich like stuff in Dawn.

    These days he is saying that there is nothing wrong in the beheading of the Indian soldier as India to has done this before.

    ——————- I am reproducing the letter—–

    I have read Jawed Naqvi’s column in Dawn a number of times… and this guy is a closet Jehadi joker!!! A real **** who has a soft corner for Hafees Saeed and Kashmiri separatists.

    MOst of his columns are written in a manner to prove to hsi Pakistani readers that India is worse than Pakistan, India has more terrorism than Pakistan, India has more reasons for breaking up than Pakistan, Indian Hindus are more communal than Pakistani Muslims ( forgetting that he lives in a secular state)

    If a man can fall low for making a living… it is this jehadi **** called jawed naqvi

    If a man can sell his country for fake Paksitani currency… it is this joker called naqvi…

    If a man can write lies to please his masters…it is this jawed naqvi…

    OUTLOOK of course needs controversies to be in the news. They can get Naqvi to do articles on how RSS is behind the Benazir killing, how RAW is behind Musharraf’s constipation, how IB is behind Zardari’s need for viagra… !!

    I do not believe in copy and paste job but all these anonymous are leaving little space for a meaningful discussions, which should come after analysing News and an individual’s interpretaion of that News. hence…
    Mr Shinde’s Myopia
    Mr Sushil Kumar Shinde’s deeply prejudiced and communal stewardship of the union ministry of home affairs needs to be condemned by all right-thinking persons.
    B. Raman
    Rediff.com has reported as follows: “In a statement that is expected to erupt a huge political row, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said on Sunday (January 20, 2013), “The RSS and BJP are running terrorist training camps to spread Hindu terrorism.” He mentioned the Samjhauta Express and Malegaon blasts to further enhance his point as he addressed Congress workers at the ongoing (since concluded) Chintan Shivir in Jaipur . He said that BJP’s “cultural nationalism” is actually a weapon to divide the country. ”His speech was disastrous, to put it mildly.”
    The investigation so far, based largely on the interrogation of some arrested Hindu suspects, who professed the Hindutva ideology, showed that neither the BJP nor the RSS had any knowledge of the planned acts of reprisal by these suspects. There has been no evidence at all that these organisations had any role in these incidents. These were purely rogue acts of reprisal by these individual Hindus with past association with these organisations.
    There has been no sense of urgency in the MHA in having the investigation completed and the suspects prosecuted. One has a strong suspicion that the NIA is sought to be used not for the investigation and prosecution, but for politically needling the BJP and the RSS by periodically levelling allegations against them. This partisan exploitation of the investigation for political purposes is likely to continue till the 2014 elections. Mr Shinde’s statement is part of this partisan exercise.
    Mr Shinde, before his retraction, sought to project as if such conspiracies involving the BJP and the RSS were continuing without any shred of evidence. His objective was to demonise the BJP and the RSS for political advantage before the 2014 polls.
    Mr Shinde’s statement carefully avoids any condemnation of the on-going activities and conspiracies of the Indian Mujahideen and its links with the LET. At the same time, it seeks to project sections of the Hindu community who do not support the Congress, as associated with terrorism. His deeply prejudiced and communal stewardship of the union ministry of home affairs needs to be condemned by all right-thinking persons.
    So once again, Why a case of treason and a case of war against Indian state should not be initiated against Shinde???

    Sapan Dasgupta in telegraph:
    After his third successive election victory, the discourse on Modi has shifted. His detractors are now asking whether the Gujarat model is applicable to a diverse, fractious country with uneven levels of development. I leave it to Modi to answer that question. However, in a recent conversation he underlined a facet of Gujarat’s development. Gujarat, he told me, merely has a seafront. It has no raw materials — no iron ore for steel, no coal for power and no diamond mines. Yet it has made huge strides in these fields. Imagine, he added, if we had the natural resources of an Assam, a Jharkhand and a West Bengal: “I would have changed the face of India.”
    For India’s sake I hope he gets the opportunity

    DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH~~

    It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. We publish below a description of
    use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

    Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

    METHOD OF TREATMENT
    1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water

    2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute

    3.. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.

    4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours

    5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.

    6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

    The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/reduce main diseases:
    1. High Blood Pressure (30 days)
    2. Gastric (10 days)
    3. Diabetes (30 days)
    4. Constipation (10 days)
    5. Cancer (180 days)
    6. TB (90 days)
    7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily..

    This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.
    It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

    This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain…

    For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.
    It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

    Once this ’sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.
    Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

    A serious note about heart attacks:

    · Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting,
    · Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
    · You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
    · Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
    · 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.
    · Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive…
    A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone they know, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.
    Please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about.

    PLEASE DON’T IGNORE SHARE IT.
    THIS MIGHT SAVE SOMEONE’S LIFE.

    Benefits of Epsom saltBy Mdhil | Mdhil – Wed, Jan 23, 2013 10:30 AM AST (Arabian)

    Email

    Print

    It can help you quit smoking, and give you clear-looking skin. This humble salt, available at your neighbourhood chemist has multiple benefits.

    Benefits of Epsom salt

    A wonder salt, you must add to your bath!

    What is Epsom salt?

    Epsom salt is magnesium sulphate, a chemical compound containing magnesium, sulphur and oxygen. Easily available at your neighbourhood chemist, this humble salt is good for you in so many ways.

    Benefits of Epsom salt:

    Relaxing bath: Epsom salt helps calm your nerves and
    relax you. If you have the luxury of a bath tub, put 2 cups of Epsom
    salt and soak in it for 15 minutes and wash off. If you don’t, then just
    add 1 cup in a bucket of hot water and and take bath.

    Quit smoking: Epsom
    salt is known to help remove nicotine and tar residue from the body.
    So, if you have a bathtub, add a handful of Epsom salt in your bath
    water and soak your body in it for 10 minutes. Otherwise, mix a spoonful
    of Epsom salt in a little water and rub it on to your body, leave for a few minutes and shower. If you use a light-coloured towel, you’ll actually be able to see a brownish residue (that of nicotine and tar).

    Stress reliever: Epsom salt is magensium sulphate. Magnesium is necessary for the body to produce serotonin (the happy chemical) that aids relaxation. Too much stress is beleived
    to drain magnesium from the body. The next time you feel too stressed,
    an Epsom salt bath will boost the magnesium levels in your body, aiding
    stress relief.

    Soak your feet: If you have foot odour, then Epsom salt
    can come to your rescue. Add ½ a cup of Epsom salt to half a bucket of
    warm water and soak your feet for 15-20 minutes – your foot odour will reduce overtime. This does wonders for aches too.

    Treating sprains and bruises:
    Epsom salt has an innate ability to reduce swelling and inflammation –
    making it ideal for bruises and sprains. The next time you have either
    of these, an Epsom salt, hot compress (add a cup of Epsom salt in a
    large pan of hot water) will do the trick.

    Face cleanser: Before going to bed, clean your face
    with your regular face-wash/ cleansing lotion mixed with a couple
    granules of Epsom salt. It will gently exfoliate and clean your face,
    giving you smooth, beautiful skin.

    Home-made mask: Want
    to rid your skin of blemishes, try this home-made mask. Mix 1 egg white,
    two tablespoons of milk, juice of half lemon and ½ tsp. of Epsom salt. If you have dry skin, add a spoon of honey.

    Exfoliate your skin: Replace that scrub you bought paying big bucks with the humble Epsom salt. Put some on to your hand, wet it and use as scrub. Voila, a well-scrubbed face!
    No more greasy hair: Add half a cup of Epsom salt to your bath water and rinse your hair after shampoo. You’ll have greasy hair days, no more

    Thanks. I read his first book Davinci Code. Will read the second book you suggested. Most of what Dan Brown fictionalized is true; scrolls unearthed were suppressed by the Catholic Church. The first 300 years of the Church (well, there was nothing called church for 300 years after the Crucifixion) was very much like eastern/Indian systems, where each learned man/Guru practised his version/interpretation of Jesus before the centralized church imposed their version.

    IMHO, corruption and (absence of) governance is a non-issue in UP. People still vote based on cast/religion. Under 30% vote is enough to win a parliamentary/assembly seat. Now, with almost 20% population, Muslims can literally decide the winner in most constituencies.

    The solution lies in educating them to become more aspirational and improve their standard of living as their peers in Gujarat.

Has not Manmohan Singh built a special relationship with US ? Or is only a one-sided relationship ? Or the truth is that it was a similar effort like it made to get the Bofors papers ? If he had been brought to India could he have revealed some politically uncomfortable information ? With a government which has vowed to protect the country from Hindu terrorism …did it really want to bring him here? …After all the bigger threats are right here Rajnath Singh , L K Advani , Sushma Swaraj , Mohan Bhagwat and the demon Narendra bhai Modi.

    IMHO, USA did, what it could. India should feel thankful that tUS caught David urf Daood. He could befool us very easily and visited so many times and places in India and did not raise any suspicion. He was a trained ISI spy and LET operator, as such, motivated and good in deception.
    If you read his life story, you will find different facets. He was a product of marriage of convenience, lust and greed. the marriage fell apart quickly.
    he was fathered by a senior Pakistani diplomate to and American girl– who else, but an another bar tender–.these girls lie in wait to strike inferiority embued, but highly placed, south asians, and in their lonely moments, entrap them. You know, who else. So, Headley’s mother and father both had only lust and greed as their stock.
    Headley, remained Daood as late as ‘96. whereafter, he changed his name to David, in order to facilitate his entry in India.
    In his school days, he studied in pakistan, in some sort of cadet school with Tahawwur Rana.
    Daood got involved in drug smuggling, caught by Drug enforcement of US, recruited for information on smugglers and drifted to LET in due course of time. rest is as they say, rcorded history.
    As his was a tough case, his cooperation was needed, hence compromise. with his two conditions, of no death penalty and no extradition to India, being accepted, he then, sang like a canary.This low life will not come out alive from prison.
    I good point, USA left deliberately open a window for Indians, to ask for extradition of Tahawwur Rana, this is deliberate. Has Indian authorities guts to ask for his extradition?? because that will open his connections to Indian Mujahidin and local support LeT has .

    Bhagwat-Soni turf war in RSS cost Gadkari his job

    ……

    On the face of it, Nitin Gadkari’s nomination for a second term was a foregone
    conclusion backed as he was by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, the Godfather of the Sangh parivar. But behind the scenes it was a cloak-and-dagger game of revenge and retribution of the highest order in which a sideshow (Gadkari’s continuance) hogged the headlines while the real slugfest, a severe turf war in the parent RSS, was hidden from public view.

    ……

    Soni was obviously not the one to watch helplessly as his wings were being clipped. Weeks before Jha’s sacking, either by coincidence or otherwise, Gadkari’s shady financial deals in Purti started hitting the headlines. Gadkari was cocksure of getting away with blue murder because of Bhagwat’s open support. This hubris proved to be short-lived as a murder story was thrown into the plot. Ram Jethmalani and son Mahesh Jethmalani started talking about the mysterious death of a teenage girl whose body was found in Gadkari’s car in 2009.

    Reports also sought to show a connection between the murder and the shady deals of Purti by pointing out that the driver of the car in which the body was found also figured as “director” on the Purti board. The intent was to clearly
    unnerve Gadkari’s benefectors in the RSS, particularly Mohan Bhagwat.

    …….

    Gadkari’s imposition as the party president was guided by the singular impulse of Bhagwat to establish his hegemony over the party. This riled the BJP’s cadre which was rightly assessed by Advani and exploited by Soni and his protégés.

    And they say RSS is only a Social Work Organisation.

    Go Rahul Go, you have nothing to fear and even less to be ashamed off.

    Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar can vie for ‘cleanest and poorest’ CM in country

    Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar can arguably be dubbed ‘the cleanest and poorest’ Chief Minister in the country with personal property, movable and immovable, valued at less than Rs 2.5 lakh.

    According to the affidavit submitted by Sarkar during filing of nomination in Dhanpur constituency yesterday for the coming assembly elections, the CM had Rs.1080 as cash in hand and his bank balance stood at Rs.9720/-.

    He inherited a home of 432 Sq. ft with a tin shed house from his deceased mother Anjali Sarkar whose present market value was Rs. 2,20,000/-.

    However, his wife Panchali Bhattacharya who is a retired officer of the Central government has a cash fixed deposit of Rs. 23,58,380 and jewellery of 20 gm of gold, the present market value of which is Rs.72,000. She has cash of Rs.22015 in hand.

    Her family sources said she had got the money as her retirement benefit.

    The couple has no movable property and the total value of immovable property and cash is Rs. 24,52,395.

    A state Committee member of the ruling CPI-M, Haripada Das, who looks after the accounts of the party said, like other party members, Sarkar donates his full salary and subsidiary allowances to the party and instead the party pays him Rs. 5000 as subsistence allowances.

    According to official sources, the Chief Minister’s monthly salary is Rs.9,200 which, perhaps is the lowest in the country. When contacted, State Party Secretary Bijan Dhar said, “I can only say that he has no leaning for increasing his own personal property. He has dedicated his entire life for the party and people”.

    Even his bitter critics do not blame him for any kind of corruptions.

    Mudassir Ullah Khan, a resident of Jhansi, who has taken exception to the use of the phrase “racha gaya” (composed) in the context of the Holy book by Bachchan in the episode aired on 28.09.2011.

    The petitioner has sought to make Bachchan, besides the manager of Sony TV and the ‘Karyakram Prayojak’ (programme sponsor) of Kaun Banega Crorepati a party in the case.

    Khan has contended the Holy book was “neither written nor created by anybody, rather it came into existence/revealed by Allah (God) Himself” and hence the use of the phrase “racha gaya” was tantamount to “a serious offence” as Bachchan was a “popular figure” and “words used by him affect all communities”.

    Khan has also challenged orders of Chief Judicial Magistrate and District and Sessions Judge of Jhansi, dated 29.11.2011 and 21.5.2012 respectively, whereby his pleas for directing the police to register an FIR under Indian Penal Code sections dealing with hurt caused to religious sentiments were turned down.

    Khan has also submitted that while the CJM had dismissed his complaint “illegally and without application of mind”, the District Judge turned down his subsequent criminal revision terming it as “frivolous and vexatious” besides submitting that no objection was raised by any “school, institution or the Mohammadan community” nor was there any “fatwa” issued against Amitabh Bachchan.

    The petition is likely to come up for hearing before a Bench next week.

    This is the sort of nonsense which occurs when we pander to every goon. It started with satanic verses… an each year it is only getting worse.

    HIndus , normally liberal should take care that they dont fall to this sor of idiocy. However the problem arises when we ban just about everythign to make Muslims happy and then Hindus feel cheated that extra prievelages are being given in name of minority protection.

    NO other country in the world has such warped ideas of minorityreservation and protection

    No! While Kasabs ad Afzal Gurus and a thousand terrorists attack India, to show them by a Muslim name will make Muslims come on the streets that Islam is being insulted.

    afzal guru did not kill anybody.kasab was hired gunmen at the most,though i doubt it as well.operators of this ghastly incident were cia and brhmnst.

    This is where, congress and our polity have brought our minorities. I heard about cultural terrorism? yes, this is what going to happen. It is only in some seats that Muslims influence government formation, what will happen, when, they are > 50%. Should Indians wait for that day, or some other, out of box solution is required.
    If we look at the scenario, it is horrible to say the least.
    At all the lever of powers, undeserved people have control. Sonia, has control over billions of dollar. she has absolutely no attachment to this country, come existential crisis, she will run away, as she has done before. We are not sure about our 13% population as more than 90% may consider Arabs as their ancestors. nationalists and patriots are being persecuted and anti nationals are being encouraged. enemy has no compunction, it uses all foul means, while nationalist and patriots face hurdle from same institutions, which patriots aree trying to save.

    Narendra Modi Keeps strict vigil on rioters in his state.

    Professional rioters go over to Maharashtra to create trouble.

    State Minorities Commission chairman Munaf Hakeem on Wednesday said there was a possibility that people from Gujarat crossed over the border and instigated violence on January 6 in Dhule. Dhule borders Gujarat and the riots in the district 10 days ago claimed six lives, all local Muslims.

    Interacting with The Indian Express editorial staff, Hakeem said, “Our investigations have found out that there has been no involvement of any local organisation in the riots. There is possibility that people crossed over from the border from Gujarat to instigate violence and this angle needs to be probed.”

    On this republic day, we are missing Pratibha Patil.

    There was only one “Kirthi chakra” award in the republic day celebration this year . A young major of the Indian army, Major Anoop Joseph was the lone recipient of this award. The award wa s in recognition of Anoop dismantling a Pakistani sponsored terror camp and killing four Jehadists in an army encounter in Kashmir.

    Anoop Joseph’s family is from Thrissur, about 80 miles from my home. When i heard about Anoop Joseph’s award, I could not resist thinking about another Kashmir terrorist encounter. a few years ago in which Keralites were involved. But in this encounter, the Keralites were not army personnel; but Jehadi terrorists. Four young Muslim boys, 5 miles from my home, went all the way to Kashmir to fight in the insurgency with the Kashmiri/Pakistani Jehadis. They died in a military encounter.

    irony. Good and evil. Whatever….. ,

    Anup Joseph is a shining example of how our young soldiers protect the nation from evil jihadis (a couple of them are here on the blog too) even at the risk of losing their lives.

    It is only because of people like Anup Joseph that we sit on our arm chairs and talk endlessly how our country needs to be saved.

    INDIANS ARE LOSING SENSE OF HUMOUR— seems only BJP and modi have it !

    Well news is coming on TV channels that Ashish Nandy has an FIR filed against him becasue he said this

    “”Most of the people who are doing corruption are from the Other Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes,” Mr Nandy said during a panel discussion.

    His statement met with boos from the audience. In his clarification later, Mr Nandy said his comment had been misinterpreted and all that he had meant was that corruption by Dalits was noticed more.

    Now Kamalhasan’s film is banned because Muslims oject to it.

    Amitabh Bachchan’s well meaning comment has been twisted by an idiot to prove he is insulting Islam.

    Chautala who is a smaller chor than Vadra and rahul has been arrested becasue he revealed the thousands of crore of loot by Vadra and Rahul.

    SEEMS THAT SOME GROUP WILL ALWAYS TAKE UMBRAGE AND NAIL YOU…

    Only people you can openly castigate and curse India are BJP and Modi. Then the same state machinery will support you

    world is fighting for gender equality.what is wrong if we fight for communal equality.
    u brhmns came from outside,may be from khazar or central asia.ur dna is not indian.95%of muslims are convert hence MOOLNIVASIS.u all are foreigners.
    during muslim rule u were main advisers of muslim emporers enjoyed the best of india.during british rule u changed ur skin like lizard,singing their

    song,became first collaborator.u helped britishers to kill 50%of indians of bengal bihar and orrisa in first 50 years of their rule through startvation.this is biggest holocaust of human history.

    i dont say all brhmns were like this.brhmns too are victim of brhmnsm.
    when america became strongest country ,u were the first migrating birds declaring america as heaven on earth.but u fkd moolnivasis by

    erecting penis through refrigeration cycle in sharwan devi.
    koi bhi chance moolnivasis ko chutiaa banane nahi chodte ho.

    if congress is helping muslims they are helping a hard working indins who are pushed to poverty through conspiracy.if bjp want their votes they should take their economic issues.muslims have more commonality with bjp than congress.recently most of religious institutions supported mohan bhagwat on his statement on women.

    Egypt: The Next India or the Next Pakistan?

    By

    THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN

    Published: December 15, 2012

    I WANT to discuss Egypt today, but first a small news item that you may have missed.

    Josh Haner/The New York Times

    Thomas L. Friedman

    Three weeks ago, the prime minister of India appointed Syed Asif Ibrahim
    as the new director of India’s Intelligence Bureau, its domestic
    intelligence-gathering agency. Ibrahim is a Muslim. India is a
    predominantly Hindu country, but it is also the world’s third-largest
    Muslim nation. India’s greatest security threat today comes from violent
    Muslim extremists. For India to appoint a Muslim to be the chief of the
    country’s intelligence service is a big, big deal. But it’s also part
    of an evolution of empowering minorities. India’s prime minister and its
    army chief of staff today are both Sikhs, and India’s foreign minister
    and chief justice of the Supreme Court are both Muslims. It would be
    like Egypt appointing a Coptic Christian to be its army chief of staff.

    “Preposterous,” you say.

    Well, yes, that’s true today. But if it is still true in a decade or
    two, then we’ll know that democracy in Egypt failed. We will know that
    Egypt went the route of Pakistan and not India. That is, rather than
    becoming a democratic country where its citizens could realize their
    full potential, instead it became a Muslim country where the military
    and the Muslim Brotherhood fed off each other so both could remain in
    power indefinitely and “the people” were again spectators. Whether Egypt
    turns out more like Pakistan or India will impact the future of
    democracy in the whole Arab world.

    Sure, India still has its governance problems and its Muslims still face
    discrimination. Nevertheless, “democracy matters,” argues Tufail Ahmad,
    the Indian Muslim who directs the South Asia Studies Project at the Middle East Media Research Institute,
    because “it is democracy in India that has, over six decades, gradually
    broken down primordial barriers — such as caste, tribe and religion —
    and in doing so opened the way for all different sectors of Indian
    society to rise through their own merits, which is exactly what Ibrahim
    did.”

    And it is six decades of tyranny in Egypt that has left it a deeply
    divided country, where large segments do not know or trust one another,
    and where conspiracy theories abound. All of Egypt today needs to go on a
    weekend retreat with a facilitator and reflect on one question: How did
    India, another former British colony, get to be the way it is (Hindu
    culture aside)?

    The first answer is time. India has had decades of operating democracy,
    and, before independence, struggling for democracy. Egypt has had less
    than two years. Egypt’s political terrain was frozen and monopolized for
    decades — the same decades that political leaders from Mahatma Gandhi
    to Jawaharlal Nehru to Manmohan Singh “were building an exceptionally
    diverse, cacophonous, but impressively flexible and accommodating
    system,” notes the Stanford University democracy expert Larry Diamond,
    the author of “The Spirit of Democracy: The Struggle to Build Free
    Societies Throughout the World.”

    Also, the dominant political party in India when it overthrew its
    colonial overlord “was probably the most multiethnic, inclusive and
    democratically minded political party to fight for independence in any
    20th-century colony — the Indian National Congress,” said Diamond. While
    the dominant party when Egypt overthrew Hosni Mubarak’s tyranny, the
    Muslim Brotherhood, “was a religiously exclusivist party with deeply
    authoritarian roots that had only recently been evolving toward
    something more open and pluralistic.”

    Moreover, adds Diamond, compare the philosophies and political heirs of
    Mahatma Gandhi and Sayyid Qutb, the guiding light of the Muslim
    Brotherhood. “Nehru was not a saint, but he sought to preserve a spirit
    of tolerance and consensus, and to respect the rules,” notes Diamond. He
    also prized education. By contrast, added Diamond, “the hard-line
    Muslim Brotherhood leaders, who have been in the driver’s seat since
    Egypt started moving toward elections, have driven away the moderates
    from within their party, seized emergency powers, beaten their rivals in
    the streets, and now are seeking to ram a constitution that lacks
    consensus down the throats of a large segment of Egyptian society that
    feels excluded and aggrieved.”

    Then there is the military. Unlike in Pakistan, India’s postindependence
    leaders separated the military from politics. Unfortunately, in Egypt
    after the 1952 coup, Gamel Abdel Nasser brought the military into
    politics and all of his successors, right up to Mubarak, kept it there
    and were sustained by both the military and its intelligence services.
    Once Mubarak fell, and the new Brotherhood leaders pushed the army back
    to its barracks, Egypt’s generals clearly felt that they had to cut a
    deal to protect the huge web of economic interests they had built.
    “Their deep complicity in the old order led them to be compromised by
    the new order,” said Diamond. “Now they are not able to act as a
    restraining influence.”

    Yes, democracy matters. But the ruling Muslim Brotherhood needs to
    understand that democracy is so much more than just winning an election.
    It is nurturing a culture of inclusion, and of peaceful dialogue, where
    respect for leaders is earned by surprising opponents with compromises
    rather than dictates. The Nobel Prize-winning Indian economist Amartya
    Sen has long argued that it was India’s civilizational history of
    dialogue and argumentation that disposed it well to the formal
    institutions of democracy. More than anything, Egypt now needs to
    develop that kind of culture of dialogue, of peaceful and respectful
    arguing — it was totally suppressed under Mubarak — rather than
    rock-throwing, boycotting, conspiracy-mongering and waiting for America
    to denounce one side or the other, which has characterized too much of
    the postrevolutionary political scene. Elections without that culture
    are like a computer without software. It just doesn’t work.

    A version of this op-ed appeared in print on December 16, 2012, on page SR1 of the New York edition with the headline: Egypt: The Next India or the Next Pakistan?.

    Shoeb- Very insightful article. Thomas Freidman discusses the genesis of India – Mahathma Gandhi Vs Syed Quitb, historical practice of inclusiveness etc. With that as the background, does it make sense that we have allowed “hate” political parties based on narrow regionalism, religion (or as in the various Muslim parties, religion within religion), and other narrow divisve elements? ShivSena, Owaisi MIM, Jwahrullah TMMK in Tamil NAdu (behind the “VishwaRoopam” boycott), Muslim PDP/SDPI all across India triggering Jehadism .. Dont you think this can get out of control and we will regress to he level of prsent day Egypt or Pakistan? Shouldnt we have guidelines on political parties? Is there any differece between extremist Muslim brotherhood members and the mebers of MIM, SDPI etc? Isnt ShivSena sort of Mulim brotherhood (except it is not Muslims, but hardcore Mrathas)

    Dear Binoy

    Our OVER EMPHASIS on elimination of corruption in last few years has resulted in reducing priority for development and growth in Govt. circles. Since we are still heavily dependent on Govt in so many ways, hence the end result was bound to be what has come out.Let us be very clear, Growth and Development is the most important issue facing India. It is ideal to have low corruption, however it should not come at the expense of Growth.All countries in last 100-200 years who have gone through high growth have had huge corruption during that phase.One latest example is South Korea. However when these countries started reaching a particular level of affluence, they started reducing corruption .Same thing will happen with India also when we reach that stage. Presently we can consider corruption as an additional expense , however this additional money comes from higher wealth creation.

    We also need better discipline in our country. It can be self generated in society or can be imposed by Govt. machinery. Practical best would be combination of both.

    I can’t think of any country which has grown fast in recent times without a strong Nationalistic feeling in society. Nationalism contributes in generation of discipline and to some extent reduction in corruption also.

    i Well, China is able to add 85-100% growth rate to our growth rate because of their governmental/political system, stability, 10 year framework for the leadership team etc. His observation “success for developing countries is about MORE THAN FREE ELECTIONS” (caps mine) summarizes the issue. We should have transitioned into democracy after the buildup of the country, as South Korea has done, as Japan did (as a result of the 2nd WW), and I am sure as China will be after they raise the living standards. There is a lot of wastage/inefficiency/”friction” in a democratic system, especially in a poor democracy, that may be equal to 3-4% growth. Whether we catch up with China or not is not an issue, the the issue is how we develop the country, infrastructure, improve the quality of life etc — too many obstacles stand in the way especially in a complex country such as ours. The beauty, if there is one, is that at some point in future when we make it, we would have pulled all aspects together, and will be at a steady state, unlike China where another bloody revolution is a possibility

    On Republic Day, Remembering Assaults on Freedom & Subversion of the Constitution..

    http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/reclaiming-india/entry/on-republic-day-remembering-assaults-on-freedom-subversion-of-the-constitution

    Did you know that “the home ministry claims it does not have the emergency proclamation issued by then President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed..Nor does it have any record of the decisions taken on the arrests of thousands on the basis of false allegations or the …manner in which the statutory provisions governing detentions were breached.”?

    Did you know that the records of the Shah Commission, “which dug into the misdeeds committed during the emergency” and held 100 meetings, examining more than 48,000 papers, are missing? Did you know that “no one found guilty by the Shah Commission has been punished”? Did you know that a government officer whom the Shah Commission had declared “unfit to hold any public office which demands an attitude of fair play and consideration for others..” actually became India’s Chief Election Commissioner?

    Did you know that a shameless government admitted in March last year “A thorough search was made to retrieve, trace records of correspondence between the then prime minister and the president of India relating to proclamation of emergency..no such records were found in the PMO”?

    Welcome back, happy new year. We missed you.
    You are right about the role of nationalism/nationalistic feeling in the economic growth of a country. In fact, a good part of China’s growth can be attributed to this, although it will be difficult to put a numerical metric component due to this. The rallying cry of Chinese leaders, both of the old Communist and the present state capitalist varieties, is “never again” and the “restoration and preservation of the middle kingdom”.

    Gujarat’s
    Chief Minister Narendra Modi (left) will vie for India’s premiership
    and Akbaruddin Owaisi, of the Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen has been
    arrested for waging war against the state

    Akbaruddin
    Owaisi, 41, a vocal Muslim legislator in the South Indian state of
    Andhra Pradesh (AP) belonging to Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (MIM)
    Party, has been arrested for allegedly “waging war against the state”
    and inciting hatred against Hindus in his two speeches he had delivered
    on two occasions in Hyderabad in December. As these lines go to print,
    Owaisi is being questioned for third day by the police.

    Owaisi’s
    alleged hate speech has been widely condemned by Muslim leaders and the
    Muslim community irrespective of their political alliances. While
    Owaisi’s opponents are demanding swift and harsh punishment for him
    making him an example for other “hate-mongers” (read Muslims), his
    supporters allege that he is being victimised for the withdrawal of
    MIM’s support both from the Congress-led UPA coalition at the Centre and
    the Congress Government in AP. Owaisi’s Hindu supporters have prayed in
    Venkateshwara Temple for his good health and quick release.

    Muslim
    leaders who have deplored Akbaruddin’s uttering include Dr Zafarul
    Islam Khan, Editor of Milli Gazette and President of umbrella body All
    India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushwarat (AIMMM). “It was clearly a highly
    irresponsible speech delivered so rashly that words used in it should
    have never been uttered by a responsible person, let alone a political
    leader. It was, in a way, a Muslim version of the speeches delivered by
    people like Praveen Togadia, President of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or
    BJP MP from Gorakhpur, Adityanath.”

    Dr
    Khan, however, emphasised, “You can’t make an example of one
    individual. No action has been taken on the ‘Owaisis’ on the other side.
    I want one rule for the whole society.”

    Interestingly
    Hindu extremist parties, including top leaders of Bharatiya Janata
    Party (BJP) have risen to power in the Centre as well as in state
    legislative assemblies solely on the basis of their anti-Muslim bigotry
    and have been involved in the destruction of historic Babri Mosque.

    BJP’s
    star politician, Narendra Modi, who, in December, became Gujarat’s
    Chief Minister fourth time in a row and is now eyeing on Prime
    Ministership, was not only directly involved in the Gujarat Genocide
    2002 but justified these pogroms so unashamedly too. “British officials
    in India say the recent widespread violence in the Indian state of
    Gujarat was pre-planned and carried out with the support of the state
    government. In a damning internal report obtained by the BBC, British
    officials say the violence had all the hallmarks of ethnic cleansing and
    that reconciliation between Hindus and Muslims is impossible while the
    chief minister remains in power.” (BBC on line, April 25, 2002). “Modi
    said he was ‘absolutely satisfied’ with the way in which the police and
    State Government handled the backlash from Godhra incident and ‘happy’
    that violence was largely contained… When asked that not a policeman was
    visible in most areas where shops were looted and set on fire, he said
    he hadn’t received any complaint.” (The Indian Express March 1 2002).

    Since
    Gujarat Genocide 2002 Muslims have been terrorised and false cases have
    been filed against them. Anyone who tried to provide relief to the
    victims found himself implicated in baseless cases. Incidentally, one of
    them was the widely respected Maulana Hussain Umerji who died on
    January 13. Paying her tribute to Maulana Umarji, Teesta Setalvad, one
    of the leading crusaders against sectarianism and sectarian
    victimisation in India and the defender of Modi’s victims, said he “ran
    the Godhra Relief Camp in 2002 where Survivors from Panchmahal, Dahod
    and other districts took shelter and drew succour is a symbol of
    Courage, Resistance and Faith.

    “From
    2003-2011 he had to spend time in jail, seriously ill and heartbroken
    as the victim of a vindictive administration who invoked POTA
    (Prevention of Terrorism Act) to incarcerate him simply because he had
    extended a courageous helping hand to his community’s women, girls, boys
    and men. Finally he was ‘honourably acquitted’ when the final judgement
    was delivered. No Bail was granted to him even after he approached the
    Supreme Court. Others accused of the Godhra mass arson were similarly
    refused bail while eighty per cent of those accused of the post Godhra
    reprisal massacres were given bail within six months to a year.”

    Since
    2002, Modi has been riding on the wave of anti-Muslim fervour he had
    created ten years ago. However, he and his Party are well aware that
    they could reap the political benefits by persecuting and alienating 10%
    Muslims of the state but in order to be able to form a Government at
    the centre, wooing and pleasing 160 million Muslims in rest of the
    country, is immensely important. Therefore, Modi, an excellent
    propagandist and media manipulator at par, has been gathering some
    Muslim businessmen around him and publicising his meetings with some
    Muslim leaders.

    While
    there is no available survey or data to know whether Muslims did vote
    for Modi, the general view is that with the exception of some Muslims,
    by and large most have voted against him.

    As
    for economic development in the state, commentators reject Modi’s
    claims as mere exaggeration and media hype. Others believe that Gujarat
    has always been economically better off than other Indian states and
    Modi is simply taking the credit for what was already there. In a
    damning article on Modi’s Vibrant Gujarat 2013 on twocircles.net
    Jesuit Priest Fr Cedric Prakash sj, himself a victim of Modi’s
    injustices, says that a “huge wall has been constructed just opposite
    the Summit venue so that no one can see the miserable conditions of the
    people who live in the slums.” He opines, “Real development is
    ultimately about people. PR firms contracted on large retainers are
    certainly adept at fudging figures and turning myths, half-truths and
    lies into something believable. But since fear and fascism, rule the
    roost, no one has the courage and honesty of the little child that
    cried, ‘the king has no clothes on!’”

    Whatever
    one’s view of Modi, his anti-Muslim hatred and his much hyped progress
    in the State, a section in his Party is now projecting him and lobbying
    for him to be India’s next Prime Minister.

    Muslims
    are seeing Owaisi’s outbursts as expression of frustration resulting
    from ongoing and unending campaign of detention of Muslim youths for
    baseless charges of terrorism, many of whom have been acquitted by the
    court, after spending years in prisons.

    Assistant
    General Secretary of All India Muslim Personal Law Board and President
    of All India Majlis-e-Tammere Millat, Abdul Raheem Qureshi, said,
    “Akbaruddin Owaisi is being singled out just because he is a Muslim
    politician, an easy target. Section 121 and 124A (Waging war against the
    Nation and Sedition)” is totally wrong because it is “ applied when a
    man threatens to destroy the constitution of the land or provoke others
    to do so, but in his speech Akbar never resorted to that extreme end.”

    Mr.Mujahideen,

    you cannot compare Akbaruddin with Praveen Togadia or other Bajran Dal leaders, who are Hindu fundamnetalists, whereas Akbaruddin and his elder brother Assaduddin Owaisi are secular leaders.

    If you must know, there is one other Islamic jihadi fundoo here on this blog, who fakes his identity as Ravi. Even he says Modi cannot be accused of direct responsibility for the riots of 2002 in which, as per engrich, 70,000 (give or take a couple of dozens) Muslims and only Muslims were killed.

    hi

    Just drove back from the jaipur lit fest– the real one and not the Congressi festival of sycophantic literature! A lot of media was in attendence. I managed to talk to Rahul Dravid too…

    Now all the magazines– India Today, Star and OUTLOOk predict that Dunce Gandy is no match for Modi. About time that India outgrows dynastic succession and naukercy. If Baby G fails I wonder what will happen to

    a) Congress sycophants and Naukers in media and outside.

    b) The Vadra billions in case a no nonsense Modi announces a CBI probe

    I think the Congress will use the CBI, RAW everything and all its Naukers in the media to ensure that the Vadra billions are not touched. For this convenient leaks and stories will be spun.

    So all fiction writers can now apply to the AICC office for a job…

    For a start the opposition parties can say in MP start probing in the assets of Digviajay Singh. In Rajasthan and Haryana they can dig out facts on the Vadra billion.

    The literary fest at Jaipur is truly a world class affair. The principle venue is hotel Diggy Palace a rather quixotic palace of a minor Prince converted into a hotel.

    Here you can have beer on hemp charpois, basking in the winter sun , while mini canons which could have only killed crows…or a drunk enemy at 3 ft range are displayed. On different occasions as a visitor I have chatted with Riya Sen — 25 and famous for her nude MMS and her mini affair with Rushdie, Ian macewan, Tina Best. William Darymple ( who found me pretty funny) and vir Sanghvi. I have stood in the food que with Swapan Dasgupta behind me and Barkha Dutt in front.

    And of course seen Amir Khan– in 2007– mix like an ordinary nice guy with all of us.

    Darymple, Namita Gokhale (who wrote Paro) and Sanjoy Roy are truely heavenly organizers.

    Well the festival in 2013 has now become a mela where everyone wants a say. Like all things Indian… it needs to be politically correct and that means a loss of freedom of speech.

    The Muslim protests rattled the organisers to some extent but since Rushdie was not here… we all knew they would die out.

    As for Ashis Nandy!! Well it is really a joke gone sour! The POOR GUY WAS ACTUALLY TARGETTING NARENDRA MODI!

    In a session with Tarun tejpal of Tehelka… * they both dream, eat, and fantasise Modi 24 hrs– Nandy actually said that a corruption free society would be despotic!! He was hinting at the efficiency of Gujrat which has become corruption free…! And he was hinting that it is now despotic. Anyway that was his view…

    His second line was there is more corruption by SC’s and OBC;s and that is distributing wealth amongst them. He was trying to say that corruption by lalu, Maywati and Mulayam Singh can be winked at…

    Well that was his personal view for which he has full rights.

    But then the very people he was defending….did not like it one bit!

    Life is surely funny!!!

    Is the need to retain control over the BJP – by an unelected remote controller – so important that sacrificing one’s protégé (नौकर) – an innocent looking but corrupt, murderer – became a necessary gambit.

    BTW have you read Darlymple’s “9 lives – in search of the sacred in modern India’ –The second ‘life” , (second chapter) “Dancer of Kannur” is about the “Theyyams” (Gods/Oracles) – an after harvest visit of Gods – in Kannur, my home town. Although there is some exaggeration, it is a good portrayal of Gods and men mingling –
    Let me know..
    also, in his White Moguls, there is a reference to the two British generals who were defeated by George Washington in the American war of independence – these two came to india after the British defeat, ; one ebcame the general of Nizam and the other the general of NAwab of lucknow… Small world!

    I have read most of Darymple. Yes I do remember the British generals mentioned in White Moghuls. Darymple probably traces his own family history somewhere there. His most interesting book for me remains– Delhi- city of Djinns. A true masterpiece.

    5 years back when the festival was small and inclusive, me and a friend were discussing the assets of a rather pretty delegate., A gora who was standing behind surely would not have understood a word of what we were saying in true Delhi Hindi.

    But alas! he joined in and then commented in Hindi– “Bilkul sahi keh rahe ho– the girl is indeed attractive…! ”

    That was Darymple…!

    Was missing you. I remember, this festival was started, somewhere in Neemrana or Neemkheda? To begin with, it was a very small and ideal venue for writers, arties and such people to gather and mingle. what, I am seeing now, that it has acquired a much bigger status and like Pigs, politicians have intruded it. What with muslim organizations and Gehlot, pontificating about Nandi, SC and STs?? Nandi writes well, and what is wrong, when he says that, recent financial corruption is being done by Dalits?? Take figures for last five years, who has done maximum financiial bungling??

    hi Pankaj

    Yes the festival has become too big. Now everyone seems to be scrutinizing it for any incorrect posture by any individual. As you know in India, people with political constituencies can shut you up after doing a nanga naach of their street power.

    So I guess Ashis nandy had to shut up. Like last year Salman Rushdie was the target.

    Funnily Ashis Nandy in the session with tarun Tejpal was actually giving a leftist liberal explanantion to the corruption of Lalu, Koda, mayawati and Mulayam. He was implying that Indians by nature are corrupt and nothing wrong in the loot by all of them as it is now the turn of SC’s and OBC;s to loot.

    In case India becomes corruption free the state will become despotic. Now like Tejpal and other Modi baiters there… this was supposed to be a direct assautl on Modi. These guys live and breathe Modi 24 hrs as thier life and money is dependent on grants and ads from the Congress.

    Well the moment Ashis nandy spelt out his disasterous thesis…. the very people he was defending…. dumped him!

    You mean RSS the Social Work Organisation. Abuse, abuse, abuse.

    Here is a list of others who felt the need to be critical of FULLY BEARDED Koenaard Elst..

    Manini Chatterjee, in a review in the Calcutta Telegraph, called Elst’s book Ramjanmabhoomi vs. Babri Masjid a “very bad book”.[48] She also said that it was marred by miserably tentative terminology, like “maybe” and “possibly”.[29] Paul Teunissen’s review of the same book criticizes Elst for the unfavourable portrayal of Syed Shahabuddin.[48]

    Thomas Blom Hansen described Elst as a “Belgian Catholic of a radical anti-Muslim persuasion who tries to make himself useful as a ‘fellow traveller’ of the Hindu nationalist movement”.[49] Ashis Nandy criticized the alleged dishonesty and moral vacuity of Elst.[50]

    Sarvepalli Gopal in the book Anatomy of a Confrontation calls Elst “a Catholic practitioner of polemics” who “fights the Crusades all over again on Indian soil”. He also says that it is difficult to take an author, who “speaks of the centuries when there were Muslim rulers in India as a bloodsoaked catastrophe”, seriously.[29]

    Ayub Khan says that Koenraad Elst is the most prominent advocate of Sangh Parivar in the West. He further says: “Such is his importance in Hindutva circles that L.K. Advani quoted him at length while deposing before the Liberhans Commission investigation the demolition of Babri Masjid.” In a reply to Ayub Khan, Elst says that he has been critical of the Sangh Parivar in his writings.[51]

    Christian Bouchet criticized Elst’s book The Saffron Swastika for having placed far too much trust in Savitri Devi’s autobiography, and for claiming that Savitri Devi was bisexual.[52]

    If you do a wiki search on Koenraad Elst, you’d find a section called ‘Criticism’ from where you’ve copied and pasted above.

    If you cared to note that when a similar wiki search is done on the above ‘certificate issuers’ – it hasn’t got a section of criticism. I may be wrong but I sense that the writings of these people are not read by many and hence their opinion doesn’t bother anyone.

    From what I read, he does not say that the RSS is not capable- he says, they (and the BJP) will be foolish to. That is a crucial distinction.
    I doubt there is anyone who will disagree with you about the moral equivalence beween one group of violence peddlers and another. And, that includes Dr Elst.
    He does also make a point – and a point which all the “secularists” avoid is about the relative scale of the Islamic threat compared to religious violence of any other persuasion. I agree with him totally.
    I disagree with Elst when he talks of Hindu violence as being justified if it is in reaction to Muslim provocation. Nothing justifies it. However, I agree with him when he says the “secular” establishment and media and such is ganging up against the Hindus (by making common cause with Muslims in their anti-Hindu and exclusionary stance) and will need to shoulder the blame for any reaction from the Hindu community that may happen- deplorable as it may be.

    Mr Elst has struggled very hard to bail RSS out and blame the individual.

    Yes, individuals are the cause. An organisation is a manifestation of a strong vision of one or few individuals. Beyond that formative stage, it’s the organisation that propagates a particular thought. It starts influencing the mass.

    RSS has inspired and moulded many individuals in a particular thought. These thoughts are extremist and divisive and religion centric.

    RSS was not formed in the era of Moghul to protect hindus. It was formed some time in 1930’s when India had already seen enough progress and hindus were no more victim of the invaders.

    So it was a political space it was craving. To my best knowledge, India never needed such an organisation and definitely not after independence.

    The constitution guarantees individual freedom. We have police, army, judiciary to safeguard our interest. We definitely don’t need an organisation to tell us that we are hindus and we must love our country.

    Pakistan may need such organisations. Because the country is falling apart. It will breed such organisations, we definitely don’t need it.

    From time immemorial, India is known for knowledge for its soft power. If it survived Moghuls and British, it can survive anything.

    Time we buried organisations like RSS, forever.

    ” : Delhi Buzz: BJP’s new president, Rajnath Singh has so far received 286 requests for a one-to-one meeting.

    Interestingly, besides BJP chief ministers and state leaders, those who sought an appointment are many ambassadors and high commissioners of 24 countries, retired bureaucrats, diplomats and retired judges.

    Excerpts:

    In the midst of its apparent paralysis, the country has also clearly indicated that there is a ready-made solution. Had the polls suggested that Rahul enjoys the same degree of public approval as Modi, the Congress would have unhesitatingly taken the next logical step. We may even have seen Prime Minister Manmohan Singh being gently taken on an inspection tour of his retirement bungalow.

    Unfortunately, the BJP continues to act as if there are 24 months in a year. It is still grappling with the internal implications of Modi filling the void left by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Advani.

    We have been noticing that you have tried your best to reform this Jehadi **** called Ravi, but with little result. Reason is laato ke bhoot Baaton se nahi maante.
    Brainwashing of these **** people is too deep. In Jammu many times aatankwadi from Pak is caught and all the time this aatankwadi thinks that by killing innocent he will get jannat because right from childhood he is taught to hate kafir. Problem with ravi type is that his faulty education makes him brainwashed with Hate Hindu and Christian propoganda.
    These people think that jo mera hai woh mera hai aur jo tera hai woh bhi mera. So first they will communalise one district and drive away minority Hindu or Buddhist and then they will go to next and say that you people are communal.
    Out here Today Jammu Times report that Hurriyat met Hafees Saeed, Kayani, Salhudin, hizbul, ISI etc on Pak visit. But natioanl press will think that Hurriyat is secular while the Hindu who is defending his right to live in J&K will be termed communal.
    So it is better to shit and spit on Jehadi Ravi’s face, than try to reform this gutter cockroach.

Laddakh is the best example. This they do not only in India but every where in world. They have been doing this in Europe, America and even China. Countries, who were ignoring them initially, have woken up to reality and leadership with spine, have dealt with them appropriately as in China.
    Unfortunately, in India, there is a large group of vested interests, in politics, in media, in entertainment industry, practically every where,people with vested interests, will come out as psuedosecularists and will defend these extremists, so much so that, hafeez saeed becomes Saeed Sahab and osama becomes Osamaji.
    Can write pages on this but sufficient to say, that if Ravi does not abuse, we need not to abuse him. Finer points of reasoned discussion may allow him to mellow down as has happened with Engrich. Engrich/ Ram autar of 2 years back was full of abuses, he is changing, not in his belief but in language at least.

    Especially for Gopi who had asked me about the Ashis nandy controversy.

    After a hectic day and just about to crash in Bed, I am seeing the Economic Times in front of me. It gives details of 760 crores of cash reserves in companies owned by Mayawati’s brother… hold your breath… acquired all in the past five years of Maya memsahab’s rule! Companies with share capital as low as 99 thousand… repeat 99000/- only suddenly get share holders buying shares for 152 crores!!

    People who know the real estate scene in Delhi, Noida, Rajasthan and haryana know that Mayawati, Mulayam, Hooda and Vadra and co have now net worth of more than 15000 crores each.

    I close my eyes and think of Professor nandy– whom I saw live in jaipur– now being pilloried for saying that SC’s and OBC’s are also corrupt. Which of course is more than true.

    yet like a true lost soul caught in his web of romantic words, Ashis Nandy had tried to make light of corruption saying that it was helping in redistribute wealth.

    On this blog we have seen our old pal Pathak G– who is intimately connected to the Congress– giving acrobatic reasons for Vadra’s crony capitalism and massive corruption.

    So in the end all the corrupt have their spin doctors creating spider webs.

    In the end it will become like Afzal Guru’s hanging. Nothing will ever happen because representatives of most parties are corrupt….

    ShindeJI;
    some advise from your counterpart, venerable, Rahman malik, Home minister of pakistan, and this is after, your Pal/friend SaeedJI’s thank you note.

    Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik, on Monday waded into the controversy over Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan’s remarks about the problems purportedly faced by Indian Muslims, saying the Indian government should provide the actor security.
    “He (Shahrukh) is born India and he would like to remain Indian, but I will request the government of India (to) please provide him security. I would like to request all Indian brothers and sisters and all those who are talking in a negative way about Shahrukh, they should know he is a movie star,” Malik said.
    Wow, is Shahrukh a movie star?? looks like member of Muslim League to me or may be SIMI.
    Further..India has realised now which I identified three years back – that this (extremism) is going to grow in India,” he claimed. Pakistan, he said, would not exploit such extremism or “use it negatively”.

    SO WHY A CASE AGAINST SHINDE, SHOULD NOT BE INITIATED FOR WAGING WAR AGAINST INDIAN STATE?? OR CAUSING DISHARMONY BETWEEN TWO COMMUNITIES. PLEASE TELL ME.

    More nuggets from pakistan vis a vis Shinde:
    Their nose for slights, real and imaginary, and quest for bloody retribution has ensured an unbroken stream of sectarian violence that has so ruptured Pakistan’s polity and civic life. But the ‘insane jehad brigade’ has never had such an incendiary issue served on a platter from across the border. A palpable sense of ‘didn’t we tell you so?’ permeates every extremist utterance ever since Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde publicly claimed that the BJP and its parent organisation RSS run terrorist camps and were behind the terror attacks on Samjhauta Express, Ajmer Sharif, Mecca Masjid and Malegaon.
    Beseiged as it is with issues existential and legislative—a firebrand cleric breathing down its neck, the PM charged with serious corruption and impending elections—it was a rare occasion for Pakistan’s parliament to focus on India. Shinde’s statement prompted PML(N)’s Chowdhury Nisar to warn the lower house that regarding the internal threat as paramount can compromise Pakistan’s security. He demanded that Pakistan circulate copies of Shinde’s comments in the UN Security Council.
    And this is that veteran chalise of poison, Shireen Mazari:
    “In India, the BJP was in power earlier and is a major contender in the next elections. As it has now been identified as being a direct trainer of saffron terrorism, imagine the threat to peace if the BJP comes to power. For all those Western states who drum up fear about Muslim extremists taking control of Pakistan’s nuclear assets—a total improbability—they should look to the possible electoral success of the BJP in India, which would give saffron terrorists direct access to India’s nuclear arsenal, especially if Narendra Modi was to be India’s prime minister,” warns Mazari.

    Former foreign secretary and India expert Riaz Khokar said, “The Congress party leadership, especially the home minister, should be congratulated for his statement regarding saffron terrorism. The international community, especially the US, should take note of his comments. The UN Secretary General should also place this statement before the Security Council,” he says.
    No one is more delighted by Shinde’s comments than the man who has a $10 million bounty on his head but walks tall in the towns of Punjab. Speaking at Jamaat-ud-Dawa’s headquarters at Chauburji in Lahore, Lashkar-e-Toiba founder Hafiz Mohammed Saeed demanded that India be declared “a terrorist state” by the UN Security Council.

    Dear Ravi,

    So your position is left of center. Now you have to defend your position at any
    cost.There is good amount of curriculam which has to be followed with this
    position like Hinduism boils down to nothing but caste system and prejudices
    against Dalits, 5000 dalit rapes a day follows from there, RSS and anyone
    defending Hinduism has to be Hindu rightist. Incase one is in Christian majority country, then criticize and blame everything on Christianity. Incase as a left liberal you are in Muslim majority country,……… well, thankfully this eventuality does not occur. It is understandable, no one wants to get beheaded.

    Either you have not studied Koenraad Elst or your positioning does not allow
    you to understand things properly. You have mentioned that he analyses from
    ‘Devotional’ perspective. Now let me give some samples from his devotional
    perspective:

    He agrees with idea that beef eating was prevalent in Vedic period and
    criticizes so called right wing Hindus on not accepting this fact.

    He criticizes Hindus on considering Vedas from Divine source. He admonishes them on copying foolish Abrahamic concepts.

    He has written a beautiful article on Macaulay on how he could not have done what he is infamously alleged to have done.

    He claims that so called Vedic astrology is borrowed from Hellenistic civilization.

    He routinely criticizes RSS on employing low brain power and concentrating too much on organisation.

    Above are ideas which will hardly gladden any right wing Hindu ( if there is
    one).

    As written in my earlier posts, Elst writes rationally and with clarity. However his critics counter him not with any logical refutation but by name calling, hiding behind academic positions and mostly by not getting in discussion with him. Regarding his pariah status, well, Copernicus and Galileo had to pass through this. But since they were on the side of rationality and truth, we remember them and not their detractors. Much before Allahabad high court judgment came on Ramjanambhoomi case, and much before archeological excavations were done at Ajodhya on directions of court, he had very clearly written on actual facts. Judges have accepted the same facts in their judgment including behavior of so called‘Eminent Historians’.

    Elst is not a Hindu though he does not believe in Christianity. His
    objection to Christianity is that core belief of Christianity ( as also of
    Islam) is based on falsehood. Otherwise he likes Christian culture .

    Back to your Positioning. You were not born with a position, why should a
    position be so sacred to you. . Truth is the first casualty of this positioning. If anything has to be considered sacred, it is truth and what is right. However I don’t think there is even one in million chance that you will recant. Yoginder Sikand did, but then age was on his side. His brain was still not completely
    ossified.

    Manini Chatterjee, in a review in the Calcutta Telegraph, called Elst’s book Ramjanmabhoomi vs. Babri Masjid a “very bad book”.[48] She also said that it was marred by miserably tentative terminology, like “maybe” and “possibly”.[29] Paul Teunissen’s review of the same book criticizes Elst for the unfavourable portrayal of Syed Shahabuddin.[48]

    Thomas Blom Hansen
    described Elst as a “Belgian Catholic of a radical anti-Muslim
    persuasion who tries to make himself useful as a ‘fellow traveller’ of
    the Hindu nationalist movement”.[49] Ashis Nandy criticized the alleged dishonesty and moral vacuity of Elst.[50]

    Sarvepalli Gopal in the book Anatomy of a Confrontation calls Elst “a Catholic practitioner of polemics” who “fights the Crusades
    all over again on Indian soil”. He also says that it is difficult to
    take an author, who “speaks of the centuries when there were Muslim
    rulers in India as a bloodsoaked catastrophe”, seriously.[29]

    Ayub Khan says that Koenraad Elst is the most prominent advocate of Sangh Parivar
    in the West. He further says: “Such is his importance in Hindutva
    circles that L.K. Advani quoted him at length while deposing before the
    Liberhans Commission investigation the demolition of Babri Masjid.” In a reply to Ayub Khan, Elst says that he has been critical of the Sangh Parivar in his writings.[51]
    Christian Bouchet criticized Elst’s book The Saffron Swastika for having placed far too much trust in Savitri Devi’s autobiography, and for claiming that Savitri Devi was bisexual.[52

    Dear Aaloke

    Yes my political disposition is left of centre liberal. Please tell me why you believe that I HAVE to defend this position. Have you defended your position, whatever that is. I was born in a family which intuitively imbibed inclusive egalitarian liberal values (imperfectly) as opposed to exclusive, elitist, fascist values. Subsequent education and freely made choices have gone on to further reinforce my chosen position.

    I believe, in books, as well as in the minds of a small proportion of practicing Hindus, Hinduism is a lot more than caste system, 5000 dalit rapes, and the RSS. However, practically at street level, village level, Khap level, Hinduism is SUBSTANTIALLY the caste system, hegemony of the upper castes, oppression of dalits, and पांचों उँगलियाँ बराबर नहीं होतीं. All this is so illiberal that I feel inner compulsion to despise it and all organizations who try to revert to this form of social stratification.

    Politically speaking the latter set of values has been termed as right wing and all such Hindus who adopt the elitist/fascist set of values are rightly identified as Hindu rightists and they find a ready-made home in the RSS.

    I have once before said to you, what happens in a Muslim country is not my practical concern; I condemn all forms of illiberalism no matter where it is. You may be in competition with Islam, I am not. I recommend you visit a local chemist as soon as possible.

    I feel no compunction what so ever in admitting that I have NOT read Koenraad Elst and there exists no motivation for me to do so. However, I have read Martha Nussbaum, Wendy Doniger, Kancha Ilaiah, Montgomery Watt, etc. What books one chooses to read and which authors one follows is also determined by ones adopted value system, Liberal or Conservative. This blog is full of people who have not read Wendy/Martha, yet felt no hesitation in condemning them. That is because both these authors challenged their firmly held views. I am no different; I condemn authors whose right-wing values are opposite to mine. Koenraad Elst, who edited the extreme right journal New Right, is so far right that I feel I do not have to read him in order to form an opinion, much in the same way as I have not read Mien Kampf or the Communist Manifesto, but have an opinion on both. However I have read Mahabharat in English.

    History they say is a plausible story that can be told using the available light. Further back in time we go, less is the amount of available light and more opportunities exist for the creation of a wide variety of plausible stories. Once again the construction of these stories, such as AIT, are heavily influenced by one’s general value system, Romilla Thappar will say AIT is real and Koenraad will say it is imaginative. One is writing as a Historian and the other is writing as a political polemicist and occasionally as a re-interpreter of Vedas. His interpretation may differ from Sri Aurobindo’s for the same reason as they differ from those of Romilla Tahppars, Wendy’s etc.

    His style of writing is not in doubt, I dislike the tone, and content of some of his writings, Mien Kampf is rational, clear and logical. That does not make it desirable to liberals.

    He is big enough to deal with his critics, Eric Von danikan had his critics too.

    With due respect Aaloke, Copernicus Galileo were giving birth to Scientific thought which before then scarcely existed. Koenraad Elst is active in the ancient established fields of Philosophy, History and Polemics. The comparison does not stand and it is highly unlikely one day the entire body of Hindu philosophy and History will be re-written by Elst and his followers.

    My position is sacred to me for one and only one reason, I like it and I feel comfortable in it.

    Vadra, Mayawati, etc are only partially to be blamed for the crores of money they stole or made illegally.

    The main problem is with our bureaucracy. We should have dismantled the IAS/revenue collection/other administrative systems of the British government when we got independence. We preserved that system – a system that was designed to serve a remote King, not citizens. So, when British left, our system shifted their loyalty to the new rulers.

    Binoy Hegde posted an article on India by an American businessman /financier where he stated that free elections by itself does not build a democracy/country. He was low on Indian bureaucracy and institutions, as we all know very well.

    I have come to the conclusion that the politicians’ contribution to our problems is much minor compared to the bureaucracy’s share of “contributions”.

    discipline of the RSS.”

    Mr Elst has struggled very hard to bail RSS out and blame the individual.

    Yes, individuals are the cause. An organisation is a manifestation of
    a strong vision of one or few individuals. Beyond that formative stage,
    it’s the organisation that propagates a particular thought. It starts
    influencing the mass.

    RSS has inspired and moulded many individuals in a particular
    thought. These thoughts are extremist and divisive and religion centric.

    RSS was not formed in the era of Moghul to protect hindus. It was
    formed some time in 1930’s when India had already seen enough progress
    and hindus were no more victim of the invaders.

    So it was a political space it was craving. To my best knowledge,
    India never needed such an organisation and definitely not after
    independence.

    The constitution guarantees individual freedom. We have police, army,
    judiciary to safeguard our interest. We definitely don’t need an
    organisation to tell us that we are hindus and we must love our country.

    Pakistan may need such organisations. Because the country is falling
    apart. It will breed such organisations, we definitely don’t need it.

    From time immemorial, India is known for knowledge for its soft
    power. If it survived Moghuls and British, it can survive anything.

    Time we buried organisations like RSS, forever.

    We are not discussing RSS here, far less defending RSS or its members- formal or informal. We are discussing Elst and his views- they are not that of RSS. He is independent. As Aaloke mentions elsewhere, Koenraad’s views run frequently counter to the views and positions held by the RSS. He is not popular with the RSS, period.
    To me it seems like the establishment (in India the left is THE establishment- they hold all the chairs, all the Professorships all the fellowships) has never tried to counter Koenraad through facts or reason. In the celebrated words of (name??) a famous American lawyer, they “hammer on the table”, since they do not have facts or law on their side.
    It is immaterial to me that Manini Chatterjee thinks Koenraad wrote a “dangerous” book. Or what historians of similar left leaning persuation think of Koenraad.

    Fourth, people wait for the repeat acts.

    A serving member and a former member in the Sonia Gandhi-headed National Advisory Council (NAC) were among the 203 petitioners to the President of India seeking mercy for Ajmal Kasab, the main accused in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, which claimed 164 lives.

    An RTI reply in this regard has revealed that Aruna Roy, who is at present a member of the influential NAC, and Harsh Mander, a former member in the body, were among the scores of others, including several journalists and social activists who filed mercy pleas for Kasab.

    “Mander, a former NAC member, wrote to the President of India seeking clemency for Ajmal Kasab, who had been sentenced to death by a trial court as well as the Supreme Court. But President Pranab Mukherjee was gracious enough to reject the clemency petition as well as the strong recommendation by the NAC member,” Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy told reporters here on Friday. Kasab was hanged on November 21, last year.

    Shahrukh Khan ..it is a strange story … whereas the super star was given security when he got a threat from IM an Anti- India Terrorist Group which does not have any Hindus on its rolls in 2008.. ( see CNN –IBN report
    ) and the police withdrew his security as it no longer felt that such a threat existed ..Shahrukh now has expressed fears that he faces a threat from certain Indian politicians ( presumably .. Shiv Sena ) Does he fear a threat to his life from these politicians … Will Shahrukh recall his remarks when he was promoting his film in Pakistan and which prompted Shiv Sena to react . How many times has Shahrukh been attacked in India ? Has he physically assaulted people in the country where he faces threats to his life ? Were those physical assaults by him in self –defence ?

    But these are days when the country faces grave threats from Rajnath Singh., Sushma Swaraj ,Mohan Bhagwat , Arun Jaitley and Narendra Modi and Shahrukh could well be facing threats from the same people .

    Hindu terror: Naidu says Congress should look within itself
    http://www.indianexpress.com/news/hindu-terror-naidu-says-congress-should-look-within-itself/1065488/

    Attacking Congress over Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s ‘Hindu terror’ statement, BJP today said the ruling party should first look withing itself as one of their own leaders was sentenced to 20 years in jail in the Surat blast case.

    “Former Gujarat minister Mohammed Surti of the Congress party was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in jail for his involvement in the 1993 Surat blasts case. Can Congress say it is encouraging terrorism as one of their ministers has been convicted,” BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu said at a function here.

    Naidu also referred to Digvijay Singh’s stand on the Batla House encounter case and said Congress has failed to tackle terrorism on all fronts because of its “wrong policies”.

    BJP will confront the government both within and outside the Parliament during the Budget Session demanding Shinde’s resignation, he said.

    The main opposition party has slammed the Home Minster for his remarks on saffron terrorism and his accusation on it and RSS of conducting terror training camps to spread Hindu terrorism in the country.

    Naidu said Shinde’s remarks has not only made Pakistan “happier” which is aiding and abetting terrorism from across the border, but terrorist outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed are also elated.

    “Because of the Congress party’s weak policies, Pakistan is harbouring terrorism. It has come to know that Congress will not do anything to stop it,” he said.

    The BJP leader expressed confidence that his party would come back to power after the next general elections.

But why you do not understand pain of Indian, read, hindu masses, who have been continuously being traumatized by theses beasts from across the border. In these sensitive time, every small gesture, verbal or in action, may be seen in mega sense than what that reaction deserve. Air of his pain by shahrukh can be understood, what I said was, him not reacting, adversely, to the statements from sworn enemy of my country.

    Edvige Antonia Albina Maino was born December 09, 1946 to Stefano and Paola Maino in Lusiana, a little village 30 km from Vicenza in the region of Veneto, Italy. Edvige Antonia Albina Maino spent her adolescence in Orbassano, a town near Turin, attending a Catholic school. In 1964, Edvige Antonia Albina Maino went to study English at the Bell Educational Trust’s language school in the city of Cambridge. She met Rajiv Gandhi, who was enrolled in Trinity College at the University of Cambridge in 1965 at a Greek restaurant while working there, as a waitress to make ends meet. In all three years of Rajiv Gandhi’s tenure at Trinity College had not passed a single examination. Edvige Antonia Albina Maino and Rajiv Gandhi married in 1968.Rajiv Gandhi changed his so called Parsi religion to become a Catholic to marry Edvige Antonia Albina Maino. Rajiv became Roberto. His daughter’s name is Bianca and son’s name is Raul. Quite cleverly the same names are presented to the people of India as Priyanka and Rahul. What is amazing is the extent of Indians’ ignorance in such matters. The press conference that Rajiv Gandhi gave in London after taking over as prime minister of India was very informative. In this press conference, Rajiv Gandhi boasted that he was NOT a Hindu but a Parsi.

    Edvige Antonia Albina Maino was given the name ‘Sonia’ by her late mother-in-law, Indira Gandhi. But there is no notification in the gazette regarding this change in name. This change of name runs in Nehru family is to fool the Indian public for their votes. Indira Gandhi’s real name was Indira Priyadarshini. In 1935, Indira joined Shantiniketan,a school set up by Rabindranath Tagore. When Indira was found in the bed with her German teacher at Shantiniketan she was chased out of the Shantiniketan by Rabindranath Tagore. Subsequently, she went to England and sat for the University of Oxford entrance examination, but she failed, and spent a few months at Badminton School in Bristol, before passing the exam in 1937 and enrolling at Somerville College, Oxford where she never finished her degree. Khushwant Singh, who has personally known Indira Gandhi, has said that she felt uncomfortable around educated people because she had no real education. During her stay in the UK, she frequently met Feroze Khan, whom she knew from Allahabad, and who was studying at the London School of Economics. Before Indira’s marriage, the then Governor of Maharashtra Dr Shriprakash had warned Nehru in a meeting and through a letter, that Indira was having an illicit relationship with Feroze Khan. Feroze Khan was quite sympathetic to Indira and Indira married Feroze Khan in a London mosque as per Islamic rites Feroz Khan after converting herself to Islam. Indira’s muslim name was Maimuna Begum and later both had changed their name to fool the public of India by an affidavit in a court to Indira Gandhi and Feroz Gandhi.

    After Rajiv’s birth Indira and Feroze lived separately, but they were not divorced. Feroze used to interfere in Nehru’s political activities. Nehru got fed up and left instructions not to allow him into the Prime Minister’s residence Trimurthi Bhavan. The death of Feroze in 1960 before he could consolidate his own political forces came as a relief to Nehru and Indira. Feroze had even planned to remarry. The second son of Indira known as Sanjay Gandhi was not the son of Feroze Khan. Sanjay’s real father was Mohammad Yunus who served as India’s ambassador to Turkey, Indonesia, Iraq and Spain. Mohammad Yunus represented India at the Non-Aligned Summits at Lusaka, Algiers, Colombo, New Delhi, and Harare. Baby Sanjay had been circumcised following Islamic custom, although the reason stated was phimosis. Incidentally, Sanjay’s marriage with the Sikh girl Menaka took place quite surprisingly through a civil ceremony(on 23 September 1974)in Mohammad Yunus’ house in New Delhi. And the marriage with Menaka who was a model (she had modelled for Bombay Dyeing wearing just a towel) was not so ordinary either. Sanjay never attended college, but took up an apprenticeship with Rolls-Royce in Crewe, England. Sanjay Gandhi’s name was actually Sanjeev Gandhi. He was arrested for a car theft in England. Since his passport had been seized, the then Indian Ambassador to England Krishna Menon changed his name to ‘Sanjay’and procured a new passport for him. On February 3,1956 Krishna Menon was inducted into the Nehru cabinet as minister without portfolio. Mohammad Yunus who cried the most when Sanjay died in the plane accident.

    At the end of Rajiv Gandhi’s five years in office, the Bofors Scandal broke out. Rajiv Gandhi was paid by Bofors through Ottavio Quattrocchi. Ottavio Quattrocchi was merely a conduit for siphoning money. He was not a regular arms dealer. His company Snamprogetti dealt in fertiliser and petrochemicals. He was nobody in India without the backing of Rajiv Gandhi.
    Interpol revealed two bank accounts, 5A5151516M and 5A5151516L, held by Ottavio Quattrocchi and his wife Maria with the BSI AG bank, London, containing Euros 3 million and $1 million, a “curiously large savings for a salaried executive”. Ottavio’s financier son, Massimo Quattrocchi, grew up with Sonia’s children Raul(Rahul) and Bianca(Priyanka).

    Around 1974, Quattrocchi was introduced to Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi by an Italian named Mr. Molinari. Then Mrs. and Mr. Quattrocchi started visiting Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Children of both sides were frequent visitors to each other. At that time Rajiv Gandhi was a pilot in Indian Airlines. Quattrocchi became very close to Rajiv Gandhi and his wife. Their children grew up together, and based on this friendship, Quattrocchi had become so influential at the office of the Prime Minister that bureaucrats used to stand up when Quattrocchi visited them. The award of Jagdishpur Fertilizer Plant to Quattrocchi, changing earlier decision for SPIC, is a clear case. He won about 60 major projects projects including:
    In 1981 – the five Alibag (Thal Vaishet) plants from RCF, four Kribhco plants in Hazira, as well as the ONGC gas pipeline in Hazira.
    In 1983 – National Fertilisers Limited’s (NFL’s) plant in Una[disambiguation needed ] and two plants in Guna.
    In 1984- IFFCO’s three plants in Aonla.
    In 1987- Nagarjuna Fertilizers and Chemicals Limited’s two plants in Kakinada.

    In 1980 Sonia’s name appeared in the voter’s list for New Delhi prior to her becoming an Indian Citizen. At the time she was still holding Italian Citizenship. A violation of Form 4 of the Registration of Electors Rules, 1960, which states that “Only the names of those who are citizens of India should be entered on the electoral rolls.” When she did acquire Indian Citizenship, in April 1983, the same issue cropped up again, as her name appeared on the 1983 voter’s list when the deadline for registering had been in January 1983.

    Swiss magazine Schweitzer Illustrierte in 1991 claimed that Sonia was controlling accounts worth $2 billion US dollars in her son Raul’s name.

    Harvard scholar Yevgenia Albats cited KGB correspondence about payments to Rajiv Gandhi and his family, which had been arranged by Viktor Chebrikov, which shows that KGB chief Viktor Chebrikov sought in writing an “authorization to make payments in U.S. dollars to the family members of Rajiv Gandhi, namely Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Paola Maino, mother of Sonia Gandhi” from the CPSU in December 1985.

    Payments were authorized by a resolution, CPSU/CC/No 11228/3 dated 20 December 1985; and endorsed by the USSR Council of Ministers in Directive No 2633/Rs dated 20 December 1985. These payments had been coming since 1971, as payments received by Sonia Gandhi’s family and “have been audited in CPSU/CC resolution No 11187/22 OP dated 10/12/1984.

    In 1992 the media confronted the Russian government with the Albats disclosure. The Russian government confirmed the veracity of the disclosure and defended it as necessary for “Soviet ideological interest.”

    Rahul Gandhi & his Columbian girlfriend Veronique Cartelli, daughter of a Columbian drug mafia were arrested on Sep 21, 2001 at Boston Airport by FBI for carrying $200,000 in cash with them. Rahul Gandhi was then freed later on at the intervention of the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.Rahul Gandhi was dropped out in 3 Months from Harvard. But Rahul Gandhi lied to Indians that he has Masters in Economics from Harvard. Veronique Cartelli is already living in Thuglaq road in Delhi. If ever, because of India’s misfortune, Rahul Gandhi comes to power, India will have another “Sonia”.

    In 2008 Sonia’s party appointed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Manmohan Singh was the only international leader to initially refuse data provided by the German authorities during 2008 Liechtenstein tax affair.Sonia shares a common Educational Background with her 2G Partner in Crime, Dakshinamurthy Muthuvel who lated changed his name as Karunanidhi.

    Indira didn’t have any knowledge about constitution and constitutional procedures.Indira furthered creation of democratic dictatorship, first kicked off by her father Nehru. Indira never trusted anyone but her family only and so made Sanjay Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi heroes without any deed during her lifetime. Her leadership plunged India into depths of darkness. India needs enlightened leaders. But it has been getting stupid leaders because the population at large is not “enlightened.”

    For India to get decent leadership, Indians have to change. Indians have to demonstrate that they can take the long view, that they are not willing to vote criminals into office.

    Indians have granted “their obedience by their own consent” to dictators for a long while. The most recent in living memory is Indira Gandhi. Before that it was to their British overlords. Before that to the Islamic invaders.

    Failure of integrity is not uncommon among ministers and that some ministers, who have held office during the last seventy years have enriched themselves illegitimately, obtained good jobs for their sons and relations through nepotism and have reaped other advantages inconsistent with any notion of purity in public life

    The dalal is “shocked” with the “skeletons” she perceives tumbling out from NM’s side, interestingly, each and every is a hyperbole, but has over the years been totally blind, deaf and dumb to the massive “cemeteries” that our beloved Italian ex-maid and her band of looters have laid in open sight.
    Proof, the Judicial and Official symbiosis in protecting each and every corruption scam that instantly trivializes Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi’s levels of corruption to “loose change” levels.
    This has not gone unseen with the global watch-dogs; Business Insider named our beloved Italian ex-maid (in 2011) as the world’s 4th wealthiest politician. In any civilized country , this itself would be an inexorable scandal, but here the paid media would not even consider bringing it to the notice of the “aam aadmi”, why, because, each of these players have kept the media well fed with their suspiciously acquired wealth.
    NM is a person who is clearly able to communicate clearly and his record is clean, he will put all these media “dalals” to the frame-work that they will have to earn a honest living. That, for these media dalals is a very scary prospect.

    Mr. Bose( a fake ID???), name calling and abusing is all you and your chaddiwala friends are capable of. Your role model NaMo will be shown for who he is and what he stands for before this year is through. A divisive person who has more enemies among his ranks that he can handle. The knives will be out shortly.

    I don’t know since when you are bothered about well being of BJP. You have always hated BJP and are simply writing this to please your paymasters. Our journalists have long ago lost their balanced view point.

    Her note saying there was no terrorism in India till 1990, what a joke. Indira’s Creation of Bindrenwale and her assasination were just social activities. Pls read History first. regarding Modi, India need an arrogant person to deal with so many serious issues confronting the country now. Old people has to retire gracefully , else , they will be a burden to the party and vote prospects.
    Why sikh killing in 1984 , not seen by this lady as ,mass killings engineered by the congress leaders personally. Do not blame Modi or any other for one such incidence, Move on. India has seen so many problems and surfaced beautifully. Modi may or may not do miracles. But the corruput congress govt and its sinful leaders need to be kicked out.
