Disabled Hindu man attacked and called Al Qaeda.

UK News: Backlash against the July 7 bombings here is taking on racial dimensions with a disabled Hindu man attacked and called Al Qaeda.

Describing the case as "very serious," Suresh Grover of The Monitoring Group said the disabled Hindu man was beaten up by his neighbours and left with severe head injuries, the Independent reported.

We understand the anger of the Brits, but that anger needs to be directed for the correct cause and that is to stop Islamic Terrorism.

Bomb Explosion in India kills 13 people

(Reuters) - Police in India said on Friday that an explosion in a train that left 13 people dead and dozens wounded was caused by a bomb planted in a toilet. There is enough evidence to confirm the use of RDX explosive," a member of a police bomb squad, who did not want to be named, told Reuters from the site.

Police said at least 20 of the 46 wounded were in critical condition.

In Thursday's explosion, witnesses said some bodies were flung from the door of the moving train after the explosion.

In 2000, just before India's independence day on August 15, a bomb went off in a train in Uttar Pradesh, killing 12 people and wounding 37; which was carried out by Islamic terrorists backed by Pakistan's spy agency ISI.

Terrorist incursions in Kashmir raise security concerns

(IANS) A major attempt by terrorists to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan has raised serious questions about the effectiveness of the barbed wire fence and surveillance systems along the Line of Control (LoC).

A group of terrorists who infiltrated the fencing in the Gurez sector in northern Kashmir early last week were finally stopped by Indian troops almost 27 km from the border, senior army officers admitted here Tuesday.

The army used helicopters to airlift troops to strategic heights to prevent the terrorists from sneaking into the Kashmir Valley or the tourist resort of Sonamarg. The army officers admitted it was yet to be ascertained where and how the terrorists had crossed the LoC from Pakistan's Northern Areas, located opposite the Gurez sector.

A total of 105 terrorists were gunned down during infiltration bids this year, with the highest number of 47 "kills" registered in July.

India, US sign pact to become strategic allies

(IANS) India and the US, the world's largest democracies, have established a path-breaking accord that seeks to recognise New Delhi as a nuclear power and makes it a strategic ally of Washington.

Finally burying the lingering suspicions of the Cold War, the US late Monday acknowledged India as a favoured recipient of high technology for civil nuclear purposes, space and even "dual uses".

The new friendship, reflected in a seminal India-US joint statement released after intense talks between President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the White House, is all encompassing in its sweep.

The statement said the two countries had established a global partnership to forge a new relationship that would promote stability, democracy, prosperity and peace throughout the world.

The most striking feature of the agreement is the de facto US recognition of India as a nuclear weapon power that would enjoy "benefits and advantages" of a nuclear power. In the process, Washington would have to change its laws and policies and adjust international regimes to enable full civil nuclear energy cooperation and trade with New Delhi.

In the process, India will become eligible for supply of critical nuclear fuel under a highly strategic bilateral agreement for its nuclear reactors at Tarapur, a US-built facility near Mumbai. Washington stopped supplying low-enriched uranium after it signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1974.

This is the first time a president of the United States had promised he would work to remove restrictive regimes against India to enable the country to enjoy the same rights and privileges as any other nuclear weapon state.

LeT continues to operate with impunity in Pak: ICG

(ANI): Brussels based International Crisis Group has said that the Musharraf regime had failed to curb extremist religious militants from waging Jihad in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Group's South Asia Project Director, Samina Ahmed and its media director Andrew Stroehlein, in an article in the Washington Post, said that the Lashkar-e-Toiba was a fine example of how despite being officially banned in 2002, it carried on its jihadi activities under different names.

"The Lashkar-i-Taiba is an excellent example of how the Musharraf government has failed to curb extremist religious militants. Though formally banned in 2002, Lashkar-i-Taiba has renamed itself Jamaatud Dawa and continued its activities, including the promotion of jihad in Kashmir, where it has openly claimed responsibility for terrorist attacks," the Daily Times quoted the article as saying.

They further said that Lashkar leader Hafiz Sayeed was also temporarily detained, under Pakistan Maintenance of Public Order legislation, which is much less stringent than the federal Anti-Terrorism Act.

"Lashkar leader Hafiz Sayeed was temporarily detained, but only under Pakistan's Maintenance of Public Order legislation, not its much more stringent Anti-Terrorism Act. His detention was short. rominent figures from this and other formally banned groups such as Sipah-i-Sahaba and Jaish-e-Mohammed appear to enjoy 'virtual immunity from the law'," the report added.

Missing Pakistanis could be in Himachal Pradesh

(IANS) Dozens of Pakistanis who went missing after a cricket match between the two countries earlier this year could be in Himachal Pradesh, say police.

The Intelligence Bureau has reportedly alerted the state government saying the missing Pakistanis could be hiding in Shimla, Kinnaur and Kullu districts of the state besides some other places in the country.

"We have alerted the police chiefs of all these three districts," said Additional State Police Chief B.S. Thind.

Nearly 3,800 Pakistani fans were given visas by the Indian government to witness a Test match between India and Pakistan in Mohali in March.

After the match, 55 Pakistanis failed to report at the Wagah border, arousing the suspicion of the authorities in India.

Police across the country were put on high alert after the recent attempt by terrorists to break into the disputed Ram temple complex in Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh.

Expectations high as Manmohan Singh visits U.S.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - India's prime minister will be warmly received during his visit to the United States beginning on Monday, but he may be disappointed in his quest for nuclear technology and a U.N. Security Council seat.

Comment : India should not beg for UN Security Council seat.

Experts warn that while Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's state visit will symbolize warming ties between countries that were on opposite sides of the Cold War, the United States and India still disagree over Iran and other strategic issues.

Comment : Iran has a President who was one of the hostage takers in 1970s, when Amercians were taken hostage, in a 444 days long drama. Why should we not support US and also join them in the war on terror by atleast supporting them vocally, if not militarily.

The most important issue which PM should raise is about the continued presence of Islamic Terrorists in Pakistan, the terrorist training camps and infiltration across the borders. Even the Islamic terrorists involved in the recent terrorist attack on London were Pakistanis. PM should stress these points repeatedly during his meetings in US.

Hindu family harassed in Pakistan

(ANI) A Hindu family from a low cast living in Pakistan's Sindh province has alleged that Sindh Chief Minister Arbab Rahim's relatives had kidnapped one of its family members and kept at an undisclosed place for the past many days.

Mai Dhuno (60) alleged that her son Atam was kidnapped after he resisted to sexual assault on his wife by Chief Minister Rahim's relative Arbab Ata-ur Rehman. She requested to the Pakistan government to secure a safe release of her son.

Atam was picked up by the Sindh government on the chief minister's direction because he resisted the "atrocities of his relatives", including an alleged sexual assault by Arbab Ata-ur Rehman on his wife. Atam worked in a brick kiln, the Daily Times quoted her as saying.

She added: "Our scheduled cast is taken for granted by the local lords. We have separate wells in the area and are not allowed to get water from the wells devoted to the Muslim community."

According to her, in 2002 Arbab had forced entry into their home and sexually assaulted Atam's wife. Atam had retaliated with a club, and had managed to fend off the attackers who then fled. "Later we left the town in fear that they would strike back. This event took place near the 2002 elections. The feudal lords guaranteed a safe return to my family so that the Arbab family would not lose its vote bank. The Meghwars and other scheduled Hindu casts are in a majority in the constituency," she said.

"But on the night of May 17, they entered our homes forcibly and abducted Atam."

Comment : Instead of visiting the Jinnah's Tomb, why did Advani not visit the Hindu family. Reason is obvious. There is a competition between Advani and Vajpayee for the Noble peace prize.

Advani quits as BJP president

Lal Krishna Advani quit as president of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday after angering Hindu nationalist allies with comments during a visit to Pakistan, but remains leader of the opposition coalition for now. A BJP official said Advani, a former deputy prime minister, had resigned from the party post a day after returning from a week-long visit to Pakistan, where he praised the Islamic nation's father, Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

Hindu groups led by the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), the BJP's ideological parent, regard Jinnah as a Muslim fundamentalist and blame him for the partition of the subcontinent.
More than a million people died in religious violence during the chaotic partition when the subcontinent was divided into Muslim Pakistan and majority-Hindu India.

Some RSS leaders on Monday demanded Advani withdraw his remarks. Jinnah pushed for the creation of Pakistan when Britain pulled out of its Indian colony in 1947.

"I am sure acceding to my request (to resign) would be in the best interest of the great cause I have served all my life, as also of the party which has given me so much," Advani said in his resignation letter, a copy of which was distributed to reporters.

Comment : Peace with Pakistan is never possible. So there is no need for Advani, Vajpayee, Manmohan or any other Politician to have talks with Pakistan. The peace talks is a waste of time. Why are we not concentrating on other issues than having peace with Pakistan, which will never possible.

What exactly is Advani trying to say ?

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president L.K. Advani has been targeted by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) after he expressed regret at the 1992 Babri mosque demolition. Touring Pakistan, Advani had said earlier this week that the day the Babri mosque in the north Indian town of Ayodhya was demolished was the saddest day of his life.

The VHP, has criticised Advani's statement and demanded an apology. It has also launched a mass campaign against Advani. In the city, which is incidentally a part of Advani's constituency, banners were seen in many places and slogans were written on walls that targeted Advani in a strong language.

"Advani, jawab do: Pakistan ne kya khilaya-pilaya? Miyan Musharraf tera baap kehalaya" (Advani, answer this - What food and drinks did Pakistan treat you with? Have you taken Musharraf to be your father?), says one slogan. Another one asks him, "Saat bar Somnath toota, kisne maafi maangi? Ayodhya mein toota wo mandir tha, phir kyun maafi maangi?" (The Hindu temple of Somnath was demolished seven times, who apologised for it? What was demolished in Ayodhya was a temple, then why apologise for it?)

An SMS text message has also been doing rounds in the state, stating, "Jootha khel, joothi baani: Hindu drohi hai Advani" (Foul game, foul language, Advani has wronged Hindus).

VHP leader Ashok Singhal and VHP international secretary Pravin Togadia, have demanded Advani's apology. "Wasn't the partition of this country and Advani's coming here (in India) as a refugee a more shameful event in his life than December 6, 1992 (date of the Babri demolition)?" Togadia asked in a statement. He added, "Nobody has apologised till today for the demolition of Hindu temples in Kashi, Mathura and Ayodhya. What is Advani trying to prove by issuing such a statement in Pakistan?"

Comment : Why target Advani, when Vajpayee had also made similar statements earlier. In fact why do the Hindus rely on the Politicians. Hindus need a mass movement, to throw out such Politicians. As regards the statement on the demolition, Advani seems to be having less knowledge of the history. He seems to have forgotten, the so-called Babri Mosque was built after demolishing a Hindu Temple. While demolishing the so-called Babri Mosque, some say that the Hindus behaved like the Muslims on December 6 1992. But it is wrong to treat the demolition of the so-called Mosque as a mere retribution for more than 3000 temple destructions by Islamic barbarians going back a thousand years. That would place the Islamic barbarians and the Hindus on the same moral plane which we feel as a historic error. What the Hindus were trying to recover was not merely the so-called mosque built over their sacred Temple, but the true history of their land. The Dec 6 demolition was a symbol of the emergence of the Indian Civilization. And it is just a start….
