Liberal visa regime for India, Pakistan business travel soon

NEW DELHI: India and Pakistan are expected to liberalise visa rules for business travel soon and a " broad agreement" has been reached between the two countries, a senior government official said on Friday.

Manmohan is a IMF agent, his masters want a southasian union with no borders, common currency and free movement of people and then finally a global one world government. This is his agenda. More people need to be made aware of his real agenda.

"The one-year multiple-entry visa will allow business persons to visit up to 10 cities with no requirement of a police report and no restriction on places of entry and exit," Mehta was quoted as saying.

This free movement of inbred porkis in our cities will lead to more bomb attacks. Residents of these 10 cities are forewarned to oppose these criminal actions of manmohan and force him to reverse this move.

Is it Divine Justice?

Perhaps just a border skirmish gone wrong that happened, an inquiry is ordered. What happened to paki investigations about all including Europeans killed by barbarians on 26/11?

India buries 26/11 without justice or honour

The opening line is

It is often said that countries which do not remember the past, do not have a future.


It is ultimately very true.

This is a very poignant tribute to the folk of uniformed services who lost their lives in the 26/11 attack. 3 years after the event I still have a hard time holding back tears as I listen to it.
Some got caught in the cross fire, some walked into a hail of bullets to save a colleague and some were let down by inadequate bullet proof jackets.
Yet, it is hard to match the sheer disbelief and awe inspired by the story of Mumbai Police ASI Tukaram Ombale. Armed with nothing but a lathi Ombale pounced on Ajmal Kashab's Ak-47 at a road barricade and held on till his colleagues managed to overpower kasab. Throughout this time Kasab continued to fire his gun and punctured Sri Ombale's lung instantly. 20 bullets were found in his body.
Sri Ombale was posthumously awarded the nation's highest peacetime gallantry award, the Ashok Chakra.

He should have been award the Param Veer Chakra because India has been in a constant war with Islamic Jihadis since 1940s.

Sachin, Dhoni pay homage to 26/11 martyrs

“It was a terrible attack on Mumbai. The Indian team was playing that day in Cuttack and all of us were stunned on hearing the news. First of all, we were not sure about what exactly happened but when we got back to our room and switched on the TV, we were shocked,” said Sachin. “And today, on 26/11/2011, we are staying in the same Taj that was attacked by terrorists. It was indeed a strange feeling. That is why Dhoni and I thought of offering our heartfelt homage to those who lost their lives during this attack."

Dhoni, who was recently conferred with the rank of honorary lieutenant colonel by the Territorial Army, praised the jawans and commandos saying that they were the ones who deserved to be treated as heroes and not the cricketers. “I always feel proud as an Indian citizen - more so, as captain of the Indian team. Cricket matches are like, say, mini battles because you are representing your country. That’s why incidents like 26/11 leave us in a state of shock. We often wonder why it happens. We were really moved after seeing the destruction caused by these incidents.”

“At the same time, we feel proud of our jawans and commandos who risk their life to provide security to us. I once attended a one-day training session of NSG commandos. I was really surprised by the kind of preparation that goes into getting them battle ready. We really feel embarrassed when they call us their ‘heroes’”.

We have learned to feel sympathy for Pakistanis. We know that "accidents" like 26/11 may occur again.

There are several aspects to be remembered.Firstly,that the anti-terror infrastructure promised does not exist.There are stories of rusting polie sand buggys which were grandly paraded down Marine Drive on the 1st anniversary,the Marine Police were given boats that were not tropicalised and hot as hell,impossible to operate in minimum comfort,no RFIDs for the massive fishing fleet,Marine Police training incomplete,plus astonishing after 3 years,a turf war as to who is responsible for marines ecurity.The babus in Delhi are desperately trying to prevent the CG from coming under Navy control,which it certainly should.This is also holding up CG fleet acquisitions,etc.,etc.In truth the UPA-2 are so incompetent that they cannot even use the stick and beat the babus who are simply sitting on the fence a drawing ther bloated salaries,while the maritime security of the nation is no better off than on 26/11.

Was the Crawford Market fire sabotage? W were earlier warned about an attack in Mumbai to be carried out by LTTE activists on behalf of the LET by the IB.The timing of the fire is suspicious.

A long as Pak protects the perpetrators of 26/11,there can be no forgiveness.One forgives when there is repentence and Pak has simply not repented and pretends as if the terrorists came from Mars.To add insult to injury,they allow these masterminds to speak freely in Pak abusing ndia and threatening further attacks.If this is not state-sponsored terrorism then what is.Our ex-IMF babu is clueless as to how to deal with Pak,as long as Pak does not sh*t on his seat of the remainder of his term.The Frontline Documentary alst night in Times Now,about Headly/GIlani and the truth behind 26/11 exposes the Paki military establishment's hand completely.While the vulture must be a patient bird,one cannot have justice delayed,which is justice denied.

it is ironical that both the mass murderer kasab and the master planner saeed are alive and government is spending crores for kasab,this is what makes us different from us or china,being a soft power with humanity is good but being negligent and slow in decision making is stupid..kasab should have been dead,,saeed shud have been roasted....but yeh hai mera bharat...shoot the politicians,,bring back the mavericks {subhash bose,bhagat singh,laxmi bai,chandrasekhar azad. etc] from past the country will be much safer.brave saleskar,nair had laid down their lives to see us safe...

I'm talking about the state elections. Voting percentages was below 50% in Mumbai - that percentage is not consistent with people wanting a change.

Fuel mafia which facilitated 26/11 still flourishes

Late on the afternoon of November 23, 2008, a brightly-painted fishing boat from Porbandar pulled up alongside the Karachi-registered merchant ship al-Husaini. Four members of the Kuber's crew were shot dead as they came on board. Its captain Amar Singh Solanki was then forced to pilot the ship and 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists to the bay off Mumbai's southern tip — where his throat was slit minutes before the 26/11 attacks began.

Precisely what led the fishing boat to the al-Husaini remains one of 26/11's last unsolved mysteries. But based on information gathered from fishing crews in Maharashtra and Gujarat, investigators now believe the Kuber's crew was lured to their death, like the fish they hunted.

The bait was fuel: diesel smuggled out of Iran, and sold by Karachi-based organised crime groups for half its Indian onshore price. Faced with declining catches and high operating costs, crew on hundreds of boats in India's 1,80,000-strong fishing fleet supplement their income by running bootleg fuel.

In the three years since 26/11, despite multicrore investments in coastal security, the scale of smuggling has grown — and with it, the threat to India's cities.

Muhammad Khan, fugitive owner of al-Husaini, would likely have known that the Lashkar hit-squad would have little trouble luring an Indian fishing boat to take it, unnoticed, into Mumbai. Khan, India's intelligence services believe, used his Karachi-registered merchant fleet to run contraband across the Indian Ocean. Al-Husaini captain Shahid Ghafoor is also thought to have been a veteran trafficker, shipping cargo for organised crime groups.

For much of their careers, men like Khan and Ghafoor ran gold, electronics and narcotics — but in recent years, there has been much more money to be made in trafficking the black, foul-smelling fluid.

Petrol and diesel smuggling into Pakistan has been booming ever since the middle of the last decade, spurred on by record oil prices. Fuel smuggled from Iran is widely available in Pakistan's cities: in Karachi, smuggled petrol is reported to retail for between Rs.34 and Rs.38 a litre, and diesel for between Rs.28 and Rs.32.

Last year, the Mumbai Police held alleged ganglord Muhammad Ali Sheikh, who is now being tried for the murder of his key rival, Saiyyad Madar Chand —breaking, they claimed, the diesel mafia's backbone. There is plenty of evidence, though, that the trade goes on: Ever since February this year, the police have made 49 arrests related to fuel-smuggling and seized nine boats. In an August 2011 case alone, the police recovered a staggering 50,000 litres.

India is investing a staggering Rs. 5.23 billion on an ambitious coastal security programme — not counting Rs. 63.3 million paid to the Coast Guard for building three new bases, Rs. 627.7 million for new ships it will operate, and separate investments in the Navy's capacities — fishing boats have yet to be mandatorily fitted with equipment that will record their movements.

India's failure to learn from past experience enabled Kuber's tragic 26/11 voyage. Fishing boats engaged in the narcotics trade carried the explosives and weapons used in the 1993 serial bombings. Little effort was made to improve monitoring of the fleet, though — and 26/11, it would seem, changed little.

At the end of 26/11 terror attacks, Karachi control room wore a celebratory look: Abu Jundal
NEW DELHI: After the 26/11 attacks concluded on November 29, 2008 following an NSG operation, there was an atmosphere of celebration and the Lashkar top brass was exchanging hugs in the control room in Karachi though there was a little disappointment that Ajmal Kasab had been caught, Abu Jundal has told his interrogators.

The control room in Karachi, which had several satellite phones, mobile phones and television sets, had turned into a celebration room, Jundal said.

"Jundal said the common words after the attack came to an end were 'Mubarak ho! Hamne teen din tak Hindustan ki security forces ke saath ladai ki, jo wo hamesha yaad karenge (we fought with Indian security forces for three days, which they are not going to forget)'. Since the operation had stretched for three days and Kasab had been caught, they were asked by Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi to return to their hideouts," a top source said.

Fear of elections and BJP's taunts is making congress move on Afzal Guru plain and simple.
People will remember, congress was merrily giving tickets to Sajjan Kumar, until a Sikh journalist threw a shoe across PC's table during the press conference.
Politicians will not act unless there is fear of losing elections and public pressure.

Kasab the Kasai was hanged and got his tryst with Pighell. 21/11 and 26/11 will be always remembered together.
Now , we should concentrate on the masterminds of 26/11 and send them to hell. Hafiz first and Lakhvi next and then others, Never mind the order. . Then only India can really feel deliverance and celebrate. Rest not untill we get em all.

BJP should take the claim that they are the main reason INC is acting on these issues. If not for the fear of BJP's win, INC would never act.

Lashkar founder Hafiz Saeed offers funeral prayers for Kasab

Islamabad: LeT founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed led a gathering of thousands in offering funeral prayers for Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist involved in the Mumbai attacks who was hanged earlier this week, a media report said today.

Saeed, mastermind of the 2008 assault on Mumbai, offered 'ghayabana namaz-e-janaza' (funeral prayers in absentia) for Kasab at the conclusion of a two-day training session of the Jamaat-ud-Dawah at its headquarters at Muridke near Lahore.

The current government has shown neither strength, determination or any sort of resolve in the face of Pakistani terrorism during its administration. On the contrary it has focused all its energies at reconciling with that terrorist state, apparently almost at any cost, partly fuelled by a distance from public opinion, partly from a smug arrogance that it knows what is best, but largely from focusing its energies on a quixotic and almost cultish focus on dynastic survival in the form of its "prince" - a seemingly dumbstruck and glaze-eyed man-boy who seems unable to click with the people of India no matter what he does, or doesn't do. No doubt when that reality sinks in, the effort will begin, if it hasn't already, to persuade his sister to pick up the mantle, or the shroud depending on which way you want to look at it. A tragic and ridicule-worthy slump for what was once a party with some deserved pride.

On the even of fourth anniversary I think Govt should come out with a special Laws to provide extra care and help to victims and brave persons/soldiers/police who fought terrorists and also for their families rather than leaving them to their own devices to survive. Everywhere, the local administration should honor them and give them pride of place in the society as they give to freedom fighters.

It is this type of touching which will try to make everyone forget. When you forget, what is there to forgive.

How many people remember the plight of Kashmir Pandits , the situation in JK in early 90s. Everything is forgotten. If you do not forget , you are a Yindoo fundamentalist , who is intent to de rail the pi$$ process.

Pakistan was the sponsor, Islam was the excuse and the driving force. If Pakistan means Islam, Islam means murder. If it does not mean murder it will have to be proven by those who claim that it does not mean murder. What was done in Mumbai in the name of Allah is clear enough.

Hundreds of people today offered funeral-in-absentia or ‘gaibana nimaz-e-jinaza’ for Mumbai terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab who was hanged in Pune’s Yerwada Jail on Wednesday.
Hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani had appealed to people to hold his funeral prayers. Kasab’s funeral was offered today afternoon at the city’s Barzulla area. The people also offered funeral-in-absentia for Palestinians killed in Israeli air strikes on Gaza.
A resident of the Barzulla neighbourhood said people from two mosques gathered at the local Eidgah to offer prayers for Palestinians and Kasab.
Kasab’s hanging was largely ignored by the mainstream and separatist leadership in Kashmir who chose to remain silent over the incident.
Through a video message released on Thursday evening, Geelani had appealed to the people to protest against the Israeli air strikes on Gaza after the Friday congregational prayers.
“Funeral prayers should be held for (Palestinian) martyrs and Kasab should also be remembered. Nimaz-e-Jinaza (funeral prayers) should also be offered to him,” Geelani said in the video message.
In May 2011, Geelani had led hundreds of people in the city’s Batamaloo neighbourhood to offer funeral prayers for Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, days after he was killed in a US raid in Pakistan.

Interactive: David Coleman Headley’s Web of Betrayal The future of interactive video. Very innovative. Sad, that Indian media did not produce something like this. Use only Chrome browser to see this innovative video.

U.S. Had Warnings on Plotter of Mumbai Attack

Less than a year before terrorists killed at least 163 people in Mumbai, India, a young Moroccan woman went to American authorities in Pakistan to warn them that she believed her husband, David C. Headley, was plotting an attack. \It was not the first time American law enforcement authorities were warned about Mr. Headley, a longtime informer in Pakistan for the United States Drug Enforcement Administration whose roots in Pakistan and the United States allowed him to move easily in both worlds. Two years earlier, in 2005, an American woman who was also married to the 50-year-old Mr. Headley told federal investigators in New York that she believed he was a member of the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba created and sponsored by Pakistan’s powerful intelligence agency.
Despite those warnings by two of his three wives, Mr. Headley roamed far and wide on Lashkar’s behalf between 2002 and 2009, receiving training in small-caliber weapons and countersurveillance, scouting targets for attacks, and building a network of connections that extended from Chicago to Pakistan’s lawless northwestern frontier. Then in 2008, it was his handiwork as chief reconnaissance scout that set the stage for Lashkar’s strike against Mumbai, an assault intended to provoke a conflict between nuclear-armed adversaries, Pakistan and India. An examination of Mr. Headley’s movements in the years before the bombing, based on interviews in Washington, Pakistan, India and Morocco, shows that he had overlapping, even baffling, contacts among seemingly disparate groups — Pakistani intelligence, terrorists, and American drug investigators. Those ties are rekindling concerns that the Mumbai bombings represent another communications breakdown in the fight against terrorism, and are raising the question of whether United States officials were reluctant to dig deeper into Mr. Headley’s movements because he had been an informant for the D.E.A. More significantly, they may indicate American wariness to pursue evidence that some officials in Pakistan, its major ally in the war against Al Qaeda, were involved in planning an attack that killed six Americans. Federal officials say that the State Department and the F.B.I. investigated the warnings they received about Mr. Headley at the time, but that they could not confirm any connections between him and Lashkar-e-Taiba. D.E.A. officials have said they ended their association with him at the end of 2001, at least two months before Mr. Headley reportedly attended his first terrorist training. But some Indian officials say they suspect that Mr. Headley’s contacts with the American drug agency lasted much longer. On Saturday, Mike Hammer, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said in a statement, “The United States regularly provided threat information to Indian officials in 2008 before the attacks in Mumbai.” He also said, “Had we known about the timing and other specifics related to the Mumbai attacks, we would have immediately shared those details with the government of India.”
An officer of the Pakistani spy agency handed Mr. Headley $25,000 in early 2006 to open an office and set up a house in Mumbai to be used as a front during his scouting trips, according to Mr. Headley’s testimony to Indian investigators in Chicago in June. As part of Mr. Headley’s plea agreement, Indian investigators were allowed to interview him in Chicago, where he was arrested in October 2009. ¶ The ISI officer who gave Mr. Headley the cash, known as Major Iqbal, served as the supervisor of Lashkar’s planning, helping to arrange a communications system for the attack, and overseeing a model of the Taj Mahal Hotel, according to Mr. Headley’s testimony to the Indians While working for Lashkar, which has close ties to the ISI, Mr. Headley was also enlisted by the Pakistani spy agency to recruit Indian agents to monitor Indian troop levels and movements, an American official said. .
Sipping tea in a cafe overlooking a plaza in Morocco, Ms. Outalha said that in hindsight, she is convinced that he is both men. She claims to be puzzled that American officials did not heed her warning. “I told them anything I could to get their attention,” she said of the American authorities at the embassy in Islamabad. “It was as if I was shouting, ‘This guy was a terrorist! You have to do something.’ ”
