Has our Foreign Minister lost his bearings?

Mukherjee said in a statement today

“We have never given up on the demand that perpetrators of the terror acts should be handed over to India,”

“There is no question of that we have given up that demand or we have climbed down.”

Its only yesterday, The minister told Aaj Tak television channel that India would accept Pakistan putting Mumbai attack suspects on trial provided that the legal process was “transparent.”

Today India stands DEFEATED

In a SHOCKING change of  public position on the extradition of the Mumbai attackers to India, Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee has told a news channel that if for some reason the suspects can't be handed over to India, then there should be a fair trial in Pakistan.Pranab said

"Indian fugitives should face Indian justice. Others who have committed crimes against India should also be extradited. But if for some reason that is not possible, then there should be a transparent trial in Pakistan," .

India has not identified any Indians behind 2611. From our past experience with Pakistan, this essentially means NO ACTION WILL BE TAKEN AGAINST 2611 culprits

All the public posturing was FAKE...

India stood tall inspite of 100's of terrorist acts but today we hold our head low defeated and humiliated thanks to our SPINELESS government

Marad carnage: Life sentence for 62 convicts

The Special court in Kozhikode, Kerala sentenced 62 of the 63 convicts in the May 2003 Marad carnage case to life imprisonment. In May 2003, A group of Hindu fishermen sitting on the beach near a temple is attacked suddenly, without provocation or warning, by a mob of Muslims armed with swords. After a chaotic ten minutes, nine people are dead or bleeding to death on the beach. Many are seriously wounded. The attackers vanish into the night.

The police commissioner, TK Vinod Kumar later stated:

"It was an operation carried out by a well-knit organisation. It was a quick and sudden attack which was over in 10 minutes. The attack came from a particular community.

Crime Branch Inspector General of Police, Mahesh Kumar Singhla later confirmed that most of those arrested included the activists of the NDF, the IUML and the CPI-M.

Report of the Marad Carnage Inquiry Commission, headed by Justice Thomas P Joseph, said the then state government had failed to protect the lives of innocent citizens and "unjustifiably" refused a CBI inquiry after 14 fishermen were killed in Kozhikode by armed mobs. The role of Islamic organisation National Democratic Front and IUML has also come under the commission's scanner. Two IUML leaders — Mayin Haji and Moydeen Koya — are named as active accessories to the carnage. Many of those who gave evidence to the commission said IUML leaders, particularly P K Kunhalikutty and E Ahmed, were protecting the violators.

Inspite of commissions finding neither Congress & IUML Led UDF nor CPM led LDF has taken any actions to punish the masterminds.

During last assembly election, NDF activists were seen actively campaigning for Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. Some CPM veterans admit they played vote bank politics. T K Hamsa , CPM MP says

“We are a democratic party and we have all the right to play vote bank politics come what may,”

NDF leader E Aboobacker says

“Why has Pinarayi Vijayan suddenly turned against us? How can a person blame us while investigations are still on,”  .

Not surprising coming from a state where a special session of the Kerala Assembly was convened to pass an unanimous resolution by both LDF and UDF members calling upon Tamilnadu Government to release Terrorist Madhani who is lodged in Coimbatore Jail. 

David Miliband endorses Rahul Gandhi

Congress is out to prove that their PM Candidate Rahul Gandhi is second to none. If Modi can get endorsement from India's Business Leaders, congress has gone a step further. They after taking into consideration their European linkage (Congress was formed by British and is lead by ex Italian) has now managed to get endorsement from British Foreign Secretary David Miliband. 

Perhaps as a prelude to the endorsement he took British Foreign Secretary David Miliband and his 11-member delegation was given a guided tour of Amethi. On his return from Amethi,  Miliband  said

Rahul had a "wide range of qualities" for which he had "high regards."

I am sure the congress high command would be beaming ear to ear for this endorsement from Queensman himself.

You cannot grow hops in Jammu and Kashmir.

Hops are the female flower cones, also known as strobiles, of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus). They are used primarily as a flavoring and stability agent in beer, though hops are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicine

It seems that you cannot cultivate Hops in Jammu and Kashmir because it hurts he religious sentiments of the people. Now you would be wondering how can growing a plant affect the Religious sentiments?

The story goes something like this. Kingfisher used to grow hops in Shilvat in 1973 but the facility was destroyed at the start of insurgency. for the unaware, Hops are used to balance the sweetness of the malt with bitterness. The more hops added, the bitter the beer. Now buoyed by the new secular and democratic government at helm, Kingfisher proposed to to resume growing hops immediately triggered protests from separatists.

Kashmir’s Grand Mufti Bashir-ud-din said Jammu and Kashmir is a Muslim-majority state and nothing that goes against the religion of the majority would be tolerated. He said

“He (Mallya) should desist from going ahead with the project as it will hurt the sentiments of people. We will start peaceful protests against such deals,”

Hardline women’s leader Aisiya Andrabi, who heads the Dukhtaran-e-Milat, slammed Mallya’s proposal and said her group would start a campaign against the government, which she blamed for supporting the move. she said.

“Liquor sale or consumption is against our ethics and morals and I am sure this proposal has the blessings of the government,” 

In the end Vijay Mallya’s Kashmir Hops dream has crash-landed, with chief minister Omar Abdullah ruling today that the liquor baron can’t grow hops in the state.

Secularism indeed.....



Greeting Card to Zardari - PM's Munnabhai Move?

On one side of the spectrum, India is accusing Pakistan of supporting terrorism in India and other side Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is sending Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardaria New Year greeting card with a message of peace!

The card has a dove printed on the front and says  “with all good wishes for the new year.. inscribed by both Dr. Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur.

I being a "peace loving Indian" am really heartened to have a PM who even at such moments like this didnot forget to send "Good Wish" card to our detractors. I am sure with "Good Luck" he didnot mean "wish you good luck next time and may you kill 1000 and not lowly 100 as in 2611".  However, I being a dimwit(and non secular) donot understand the significance of this move. Is it because having failed to take any concrete action against Pakistan, PM has resorted to  "Munna Bhai" move hoping to shame Pakistan into action?

By the way did PM remember to send "Good Wish" card to parents of brave martyrs of 2611. I am not sure how they will react to the news that PM has send "good Wish" Card to people who killed Only Sons.
