15 minutes to defeat terrorism – by Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday had a surprise suggestion of empowering villagers to fight terrorism.

“I am confident that this country can take on terrorism. Defeating it is no problem. If we empower those people in villages, we can sit back, relax and we will destroy terrorism in 15 minutes,” Gandhi told a press conference here.

Err…Umm.. Beware Taliban, here come our villagers!! Swoosh …15 minutes later the taliban were defeated and sent to hell and the Villagers went back to their daily chores. No need for the army or the police, no anti-terrorist squad, no nothing. Just our plain old villagers will do the trick. Where was Rahul when these terrorists were raising their ugly head? If he had suggested this earlier we would not have had to live our lives scared until now. Such maturity and wisdom at such a young age, it must have been there in his genes.

Or was he mentioning the Naxalites? I guess he was, and if he was , am not surprised that he equated terrorism with maoists and not the radical Islamists. Not bad dude , you seem to be learning the tricks of vote bank politics  very well.

I have asked before and still ask, do you “secularists” and the “intellectuals” STILL believe that this man is the one who will take India forward.? Is having the blood of the Nehru family the best and the only criteria to lead India? I do believe that priyanka is a natural politician and can give many an opponents a run for their money(but she needs the experience in public domain before she can become a politician) , but this guy ?? I mean, its ok to campaign for his mom, an may be its ok to be a politician in the congress party( they cant go any lower even with him included), but a PM.. Some one who will lead India forward??

Come on people, wake up.

India among world’s most terror-afflicted countries: US

The Big brother has spoken about the anti-terrorism apparatus on our country. Not withstanding US’ own botched up plan in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan(that inlcudes pakistan) , the report makes some facts clear.

  • We have no courage to persecute the terrorists (sounds true).
  • The terrorists are funded by wealthy donors (they mean the D company as well?)
  • We have three threats from pakistan, bangladesh and the worst of all, home grown.
  • Atleast we dont have our scientists selling the nuclear assets to some one, that way we are safe custodians of nuclear tech.
  • We have a good anti-terrorism policy (ON PAPER?)
  • While tackling the Jihadis we still have the Maoists and the ethno-linguistic nationalists in northeastern states on our plate.

Whoa, I think we can kiss “peace” good bye for a long time Continue reading

Brahma Chellaney on Obama’s AfPak policy.

Brahma Chellaney writes about the strategy of the American president to counter the AfPak problem. I agree to his views and is a good read. Below are a few excerpts. The article can be found here.

Brahma Chellaney says that India is indeed ‘the sponge that protects us all’ from terrorism emanating from Pakistan. The new President’s strategy is compounding the Af-Pak problem

After all, the brunt of escalating terrorism from Pakistan will be borne by India, which already has become, in the words of ex-US official Ashley Tellis, ‘the sponge that protects us all’.

[..]

The Af-Pak problem won’t go away without a fundamental break from the American policies that helped create this terrifying muddle. The US military can never win in Afghanistan, or even secure a ticket out of that country as Obama wants, without first dismantling the Pakistani military’s sanctuaries and sustenance infrastructure for the Taleban and other state-reared terror groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (the group who carried out the Mumbai atrocities) and Jaish-e-Muhammad. As Bush’s national security adviser Stephen Hadley pointed out just before leaving office in January, ‘You can’t really solve Afghanistan without solving Pakistan.’

Yet to mend a broken policy on Pakistan, Obama is doing more of what helped to create the failure — dispensing rewards upfront. He has set out to make Islamabad the biggest recipient of US aid in the world without having first defined benchmarks for judging progress. It was under his predecessor, however, that Pakistan began raking in a terrorist windfall.

What if Kasab is a minor?

***********Update****************

Doctors confirm that Kasab is an Adult. So everything is not that bad after all. Sometimes paranoia sets in with so many killers around.

*********************************

Tests are underway to determine if the Kasai from Pakistan who butchered people in Bombay is a minor or not. Several doctors, rasiologists etc. are trying to figure out if he was less than 18 while the shootout happened. How does that affect the trial, well hold your breath.

“If he is a minor then the case will be shifted to a juvenile court and according to the Juvenile Justice Act the maximum punishment meted out will be three years,” defence lawyer Abbas Kazmi said.

What a Shame. What a mockery of Indian lives, that too in India. The butcher might just get 3 Years in juvenile prison where he can have his biryani and get fat before he goes back home to pakistan. What in the name of god are we telling the world? And what in the name of hell are you telling the jihadis? We are making it clear to them that next time you plan a fidayeen  attack on India, choose terorists who are less than 18 years old, they will do the job for you. They will kill scores of people in Indian and the maximum punishment that they will recieve is 3 years in a juvenile prison.

400 militants may cross over into India

400 militants crossing over into India…. Am wondering if the congress government is arranging a reception committee to welcome them. They would be weary and tired after all the traveling they would have done. Also they belong to a community which sadly has been converted into a “vote bank” over the last 60 odd years, and they cant afford to loose their “vote bank”. And with basic arithmetic, if 10 militants killed more than 150 in November last year ……..hmm… 400 can kill 6000… I guess i got my math right.

When will we take terrorism seriously and stop making it look like a smoke screen created by the saffron brigade.?

Srinagar: Ahead of elections, infiltration bids across the Line of Control have increased. As many as 400 militants are reportedly waiting to cross over from Pakistan and the Army has launched massive combing operations.

The Army has killed 28 militants over the past two weeks in Kupwara but it has also lost 11 men, mostly from the elite Special Forces in the jungle warfare.

With Taliban on the loose in Pakistan, security forces have intensified patrolling and reviewed security along the LoC. A greater synergy of intelligence sharing between police and army has thwarted many such incursions.

But despite the counter-infiltration measures, sources say 20-40 militants – mostly from the Lashkar-e-Toiba – may have managed to sneak in.

It’s a clear and present danger, especially with intercepts by security forces suggesting that the Taliban might give direct or indirect support to the militancy in Kashmir.

LeT trained its terror brigade in Kerala

This is great news for the LeT. Now they can stop training people in muridke and then send them to India. Its too much of a hassle you see. infiltration, security forces etc. In india there is no problem at all and they might even get the support of the politicians.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A terror brigade of 185 Keralites was selected by the Lashkar- e-Toiba and provided preliminary training at camps conducted in various centres in Kannur and Ernakulam. The Special Investigation Team probing the terror link to Kerala obtained this shocking piece of information from three Kashmiri youngsters.

Yasin, Fayaz, Shakeer alias Rahim and Fayiz who were killed in encounters with police in Kashmir and Abdul Jabbar, who had escaped the scene, constituted the pilot team sent by Kerala terror gurus to Kashmir.

SIT officials led by DySP V K Akbar, who visited Kashmir in January to probe the terror links of Kerala youth, interrogated Fiyaz Ahammed, 26, of Dindwall, Pulwama, Sajad Ahammed Reshi alias Hanzulla, Chakoo Shopian, South Kashmir, and Shabbir Ahammed Tali alias Abu Saquib, 20, Tulrun Shoppian, South Kashmir.

These three youngsters took part in the terror camp organised by LeT in Kupwara and Dorusa forest areas in Kashmir during October last year, along with the five-member team from Kerala. The Lashkar camp had 17 members, including seven Pakistanis and three Kashmiris.

“The Malayalis joined the camp in the second week of September.Shakeer alias Rahim was their leader. He could speak Urdu,” said Fiaz Ahammed.

According to Sajad Ahammed Reshi, the five Keralites, who had attended the terror training, wanted to go to Pakistan and get advanced training in weaponry. “Their plan was to go back to Kerala after being trained in Pakistan and engage in terrorist and anti-national activities,” he deposed before the police.

Shabbir Ahammed Tali told the police that 180 more youngsters were waiting in Kerala after the preliminary training to join Jihad. “One Ustad had indoctrinated them,” said Tali.The SIT officers had crosschecked this information with Fiaz Ahammed and Reshi who said they had also known it. The police guess that the Ustad they were referring to was Haji Ustad alias Thadiyantavide Nazir Haji, who is absconding.

20-ft tunnel, Rs 2 crore to keep Kasab safe in Mumbai

It must be real fun to be taken care of by the kafirs whom he came to kill.  But then its a shame that we are stopping him from getting his 72 virgins in heaven.

Mumbai: It is possibly the costliest piece of real estate being built in Mumbai and it is coming up inside the walls of the Arthur road prison at a cost of Rs 2 crore for 20 feet.

Over 250 workers are working round the clock to finish a special corridor to take 26/11 accused Mohammed Ajmal Kasab from his cell to the special court inside the jail and back. The corridor will be bomb, bullet and chemical weapons proof.

It is believed that the special court and Kasab’s cell are also being reinforced with iron plates. Also, Kasab’s cell, the corridor and the special court will be centrally air conditioned.

Surveillance cameras will keep a 24-hour watch in the cell, along the corridor and inside the court.

This is for the first time in India’s history that Rs 2 crore is being spent on security for a terrorist. For the police, it is money well spent, keeping in mind the threat to Kasab’s life.

The jail itself will be turned into a fortress. A battalion of armed paramilitary personnel will be manning it 24/7. The Mumbai crime branch has also asked for ITBP personnel for the three-tier security arrangement.

Paramilitary personnel will patrol the corridor and the area outside Kasab’s cell. Commandos will be placed outside the special court too.

“We are making all necessary arrangements for Kasab’s security. We have asked the Centre for their best commandoes so that his security is complete,” State Home Minister, Maharashtra, Jayant Patil said.

The trial is expected to start by the end of March and throughout the proceedings Kasab will remain chained.

For the Mumbai Police the first challenge is to ensure Kasab’s security. The bigger task of presenting evidence and securing a conviction comes next.

Gunmen shoot Sri Lanka cricketers

Its time that the pakistanis start calling terrorists as terrorists. They cannot become Freedom fighters when they reach Kashmir and become terrorists when they start firing in Pakistan. What was the Srilankan team really thinking when they agreed to tour pakistan? that terrorists were their friends and would not harm them? Well I guess they had a very bad wakeup call.

Wondering if Akram still stands by his reprive of India not playing cricket after 26/11.

And also read this remark by a pakistani minister. (Source BBC)

“But a Pakistani minister, Sardar Nabil Ahmed Gabol, reportedly told private Geo TV that evidence suggested the attackers came across the border from India.

He said the assault came in reaction to the Mumbai attacks, and was a “declaration of open war on Pakistan by India”.”

I agree it must be the hand of the RSS and Israel , working together to bring them down.

Advani hints at local link to 26/11

I guess we will have to agree to that.  It is really not possible to do such an elaborate exercise without local support.  I don’t understand why the government should be hiding facts (or maybe I do understand????). We need to understand that all Indians are not patriotic and there are scrupulous elements in all walks  of life and communities who will be willing to help these terrorists to carry on the carnage. There have been such support in the past and there will be in the future, closing a blind eye towards it is not going to solve the problem.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on local support in the Mumbai terror attacks on Tuesday found support in senior BJP leader L K Advani.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha, the Leader of the Opposition and the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate questioned the Mumbai police chief ruling out ‘local links’ in Mumbai terror attacks.

“It is clear that the planning happened for a year and they visited the places they attacked on November 26. It is not possible that there are no local links in 26/11,” said said L K Advani, Leader of Opposition.

“It is a well-planned conspiracy. I was also surprised to hear the Mumbai police chief’s comment that all 26/11 terrorists are accounted for, that they are either dead or in custody. And there is no local link. How can they give that certificate?’ added Advani.

The Congress had condemned the remarks as anti-national and one that toed Pakistan’s line.

But I did not speak out

Found this poem by chance, but then, I guess it stands true.

This poem was originally written by a Jewish poet to describe Jewish failure to recognize Nazis before it was too late. It was modified by an Indian to describe the designs of Islamic terrorism in the Indian-subcontinent since 1947.

First they came for Punjabi / Sindhi / Bangladeshi non-Muslims

But I did not speak out,
Because I was not a Punjabi / Sindhi / Bangladeshi non-Muslim

Then they came for the Kashmiri non-Muslims
And I did not speak out,
Because I was not a Kashmiri non-Muslim

Then they came for the Jammu / Ladakhi non-Muslims
And I did not speak out,
Because I was not a Jammu / Ladakhi non-Muslim

Then they came for the Assamese non-Muslims
And I did not speak out,
Because I was not a Assamese non-Muslim

Then they came for the West Bengali non-Muslims
And I did not speak out,
Because I was not a West Bengali non-Muslim

Then they came for the Nepali non-Muslims
And I did not speak out,
Because I was not a Nepali non-Muslim

Then they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak out for me.
