^ Yes, it doesn't. Last year, a Maoist Keralite couple was arrested from Coimbatore undergoing medical treatment. Now, one at the State capital. TN Police have taken enormous efforts to destroy these scoundrels in the 70s (under the able leadership of Walter Davaram who led the special police team from the front) and since then these anti-national terrorists have been under very close scrutiny. There were one or two incidents but they were put down with iron hand. We also know that a handful of Tamil Maoists did escape and are yet to be arrested. There have been intense searches in the Palani hills, forests bordering Kerala etc. In that context, this arrest at Chennai, though welcome, may portend potential troubles.

How the Jat agitators managed to cause massive damage to the canal supplying water to delhi must be seriously investigated.
Army and haryana administration working in full swing with earth excavators to clear up the mess.

How can unarmed men cause this kind of infra damage ?

Nirav, no offense to any Jat brother on BR but you have to visit a village there to understand their mindset and how can they cause such damage. Tracker trolley, trucks, etc are good earth movers.

It's another question why it was allowed to happen in the first place.

Err, not unarmed but armed with lathis, swords, crude petrol bombs & locally made rifles. And all this sitting less than 100 feet from an Army column.

Read today's hindustan times epaper - chandigarh edition to know about the horrors of jat agitation. Real horrific stories, lots of clashes between jats and nonjats.

Death toll would be much higher than claimed.

Another horror story from tribune http://www.tribuneindia.com/mobi/news/nation/women-commuters-violated-by-highway-goons/200406.html

Presuming MP saini had Amit shah's backing, it seems like Modi's coterie is hell bent in ensuring that this is the last NDA government in a long while..

BJP nor congress is the party to antagonize this group, the bat nuts ie. But if Modi is really pro-India and not pro-electoral politics, he can really make himself stand head & shoulders above the rest by imposing a fine of say Rs. 5000 crore on these bats before any agenda of 'reservation' is even re-considered. Whateven amount as penalty is fixed should be 'above & beyond' what these clowns can summon up with their collective efforts. Somewhat like the old 'levy system' of british.

To break up a canal, you need tractors, JCB's, backhoes etc which I suppose these group of sub-men have all the time.

& if possible, change the capital of India away from this disgusting place. It will also give boost to economy.

Or rather this is Hooda and Robert Vadra using the means at their disposal to do maximum damage, what would Saini and Moddi get out of this, whereas Hooda, Vadra and family have everything to gain, aldready their is a phone recording of Hooda aid organising the riots.
From your article, I don't think this Jats in general but a very dirty Political riot which has killed 30 people.

You suddenly went against everybody, saying Thakurs said this and Sainis said that. Don’t you have brains to think on your own? What you have burnt belonged to you. You have not burnt Pakistan’s or America’s buildings,” she says in anguish.
Contending that government jobs alone will not ensure progress, she asks as to who’ll invest in Haryana now. — Sushil Manav
"My first coach was a Thakur and another a Saini. The coach who taught me the finer nuances of the game was from a family of goldsmiths. They did not ask me if I was a Jat or a Thakur, a Baniya or a Dalit. They only knew that I belonged to their own Haryana." — Anuradha Beniwal


If Haryanvi and UP Jats need to progress any person in Hooda or Ajit Singh Party should be boycotted.

In fact, those who damage public property must bear the complete cost of repair and also pay heavy penalties and undergo rigorous jail terms for disrupting public life. The organizer of the event is responsible in any case and along with of course, those who actually indulged in vandalism. This law must automatically kick-in after any such event, without police having to file an FIR. The Collector who is also the DM must initiate proceedings forthwith and if he fails, the High Court must initiate action against the Collector. The district police and the magistrates anyway report to the collector.

Tamil Nadu Police Arrests Suspect Maoist Near Sriperumbudur

SSridhar wrote:^ Yes, it doesn't.

BLAST MASTERMIND - The Hindu
The suspect turns out to be a blast mastermind.
Sleuths of the ‘Q’ Branch CID of the Tamil Nadu police arrested a suspected Maoist at Sriperumbudur near here on Monday night.

According to police sources, a special team, based on a tip-off, arrested Surendra Yadav (32) of Mayarpur in Palamu district, Jharkhand. He was allegedly the mastermind of a landmine blast in which seven policemen were killed about six months ago at Chhaterpur village in Palamu district. The accused was produced in a city court and taken to Jharkhand. “The Jharkhand police gave us information that he was hiding in Sriperumbudur. Inquiries revealed that after escaping from , he was hiding in Tamil Nadu,” a police official said. After confirming his presence in Sriperumbudur, the ‘Q’ Branch police alerted the Jharkhand police and on Monday a team landed here for the arrest. A few months ago, the ‘Q’ Branch police arrested top Maoist leader Rupesh, his wife Shyna and others near Coimbatore. Rupesh, who led the recently formed Western Ghats Special Zonal Committee, was staying in a house in Tirupur with his wife since 2012. {The case I referred to in my earlier post}

35 Years on, Cops of Anti-Naxal Operation Saluted - New Indian Express
Residents of the district of Vellore, Tirupattur and Jolarpet and beyond gathered at the memorial in Tirupattur on Thursday to honour and pay tribute to police personnel on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the successful conclusion of Operation Ajanta that freed northern Tamil Nadu of the scourge and terror of Naxalism, rampant in the area at the time.

If north Tamil Nadu is largely free of Naxalism and the terror it invoked, it is largely because of the bravery of the police personnel involved in Operation Ajanta.

Those who gathered remembered afresh that Operation Ajanta eliminated the Naxals from Tirupattur, Jolarpet and surrounding areas in the erstwhile North Arcot district three decades ago to the day.

Operation Ajanta was so named by the then Chief Minister of Tamil nadu, MG Ramachandran, in honour of Jolarpet Inspector V Palanisamy’s six-year-old daughter Ajanta. {MGR also attended the funeral of the policemen} Thirty five years ago on August 6, Palanisamy and two police constables — C Murugesan and R Yesudoss — were killed in a bomb attack by a notorious Naxalite, Sivalingam, of Jolarpet. Sivalingam’s associate Selvam was also killed when the bomb was hurled at the three policemen who were on their way to the Tirupattur taluk police station for interrogation.

Sivalingam disappeared from the police radar after the killings and was arrested only in 2009.

“The incident happened a week after I took charge as DIG of the range,” former DGP of Tamil Nadu Walter Devaram told Express on the sidelines of the 35th Commemoration Day.

“Within a year, we had uprooted the Naxalites from this part of the State and ensured they do not resurge in the future,” said Devaram and attributed a large part of the success of the operation to public support.


It may be recalled that around 100 policemen split into three to four teams and encountered 19 Naxalities — including prominent Naxals Kannamani, Rathinavel, Anbu, Irutupatchai.

“We encountered three Naxals on August 21, in the year 1981 in Naickaneri hills near Ambur and also seized Chinese made weapons from them,” added the former DGP.

There are doubts over Afzal Guru’s role in Parliament attack: P Chidambaram

Correct me again who were people in Govt when 76 CRPF personnal were sent to the deaths in 2008, how did the Maoists get the motivation, training and weapons to do such a cold blooded murder, who were the Babus who were giving orders sending the men to the deaths.

I do not buy this Tribals who are hungry killing people for the state. If I am right Congress Govt in 2011 Rehabilitated some of the Maoists involved in Coastal Andhra rather than bringing them to face justice.

How do so called tribals who blow up Hospitals and schools get vasectomy operation done. Somebody needs to blow the lid of the Naxal ecosystem

Government's gift to surrendering Maoists -- vasectomy reversal

P.Chidambaram cannot escape by saying that he was not the Home Minister when Afzal Guru was hanged. He is part of the collective responsibility of the Cabinet. He was a member of the inner-most core. Did he ever voice an opinion that he didn't believe that Afzal Guru was not involved? Besides, he claims that Afzal could have been given 'life sentence without parole for the rest of his natural life'. If Afzal Guru was not involved, then why even the life sentence? Clearly, PC is trying to make this Afzal Guru issue political even at the cost of this country.

PC must be reminded how all the Congress top leaders from the PM downwards to the Chief Minister in TN handled the student agitation in TN when scores of students were shot dead and hundreds were imprisoned in c. 1965.

Leaders must pay for damage: SC
Agitations cannot hold the nation to ransom and be a reason to vandalise public property, the Supreme Court said on Wednesday. Organisers of such agitations will have to pay the cost.

The court’s resolve hit home after the widespread Jat quota agitation saw killings, burning and looting of shops, and mobs destroying canals supplying water to the National Capital. The Haryana government reeled under losses worth several thousands of crores and the Army was brought in to protect public property.

Equal accountability

A Bench of Justices J.S. Khehar and C. Nagappan said parameters should be laid down to pin the blame on organisers and make them pay compensation for agitations which slipped into uncontrolled mob violence against innocents and their property.

“What is happening? Where is our country heading? You cannot burn the country’s property. You can agitate peacefully. But what is all this burning and ransacking? Those who do it must know that there will be consequences for their actions,” the Bench said.

Stressing that equal accountability should be applicable to all, the court said: “Whether it is the BJP or the Congress or whichever organisation or party, it may be asked to pay for the property damaged. They will collect the money and pay for the damage.”

The Bench was hearing a plea by quota agitation leader Hardik Patel to quash charges of sedition against him. Gujarat had also witnessed violence and public property loss during the Patidhar agitation. The police had lodged a case in October against Mr. Patel and five of his aides on the charges of sedition and waging war against the government.

The apex court had on January 14 asked the AG to assist it on the approach to be adopted in dealing with cases where public property was damaged on a large scale.Hardik has claimed that the charges had been wrongly been invoked against him.

I am posting an article here for discussions though it does not directly (or does not seem to directly) affect us. Yet, I find too many events happening around us which could be related to what the article talks about. It is a long piece, still I am posting in full:

http://southfront.org/color-revolutions-as-an-element-of-net-centric-warfare/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Written by Prof.Dr. Vladimir Prav exclusively for SouthFront

Contemporary geopolitical struggle concepts invariably include provisions concerning the creation and functioning of “networks.” The sense of a “net” or a “network principle” lies in the exchange of information, the maximum possible expansion of information production, access, distribution, and feedback. The “net” is the main element of information space, in which information operations are carried out with the aim of achieving political, economic, informational, technical, and military objectives. “Network” as a system in the global understanding of the term includes several elements which earlier used to be viewed as strictly separate phenomena.

The basic principle of conducting modern geopolitical struggle is “net-centrism.” This principle based on three postulates.

1. The modern world is defined not only be transport corridors with associated flows of goods and services, but also informational and communications networks, which form the skeleton of the global information space.

2. The global historical process is a unified, global process of conflict, mutual help, or neutral coexistence of human societies organized along hierarchical (vertical) and also network (horizontal) principles, with the net-centric (horizontal) possibly becoming dominant in the future. Vertical and horizontal network structures, with varying origin, purpose, numerical strength, geographic and temporal boundaries, and legal status, are both the objects and subjects of the global historical process whose interaction facilitates the emergence of new structures and connections.

3. The dynamically developing artificial (electronic) networks which intertwine and interact with psycho-social networks and amount to a qualitatively new social phenomenon, are a unique feature of the informational network skeleton of the future global society. That phenomenon is identified within the net-centric information war concept as SPIN—Segmented, Polycentric, Ideologically integrated Network. We should note that Microsoft offered a more precise definition of this phenomenon, namely “electronic nervous system,” or ENS.


The main global actor systematically using the net-centric principle in geopolitical struggle is the USA. Its executive actors are the mutually intertwined state agencies, corporations, and international network structures.

The international networks structures, which are usually referred to as “behind the scenes actors”, and which are the basic initiators of the process of globalization, are essentially a network of highly influential NGOs which form the Euro-Atlantic’s globalists (or Western) ideological “super-community” and which are closed to outsiders. Such network structure can exert serious pressure on the whole of global political environment, financial system, economy, through its representatives and lower-rank international entities. They can also make and implement decisions to effect a change of regime and course of development of selected countries.

Relying on the mobilization of net-centric assets located under the control of these representatives, the Euro-Atlantic’s globalists “super-community”can effect a “soft” resolution of a wide range of clearly defined and coordinated domestic and international political problems. Global direction and control can be effected thanks to the existence of such a distributed and hierarchically ordered meta-net-centric organization whose upper echelons are represented by networks which belong to the Western “super-community”. The individuals being directed may not even understand that he is being directed, and even if he does, he will not be able to figure out from where the directions are emanating and who bears responsibility for it.

The main content of all “net-centric wars” consists of “effects-based operations” (EBO). This is the most important concept in the entire net-centric warfare theory developed in the US. EBO are defined by US specialists as a “combination of actions aimed at forming a specific model of behavior among friends, neutral forces, and enemies during peace, crisis, and war.” (Edward A. Smith, Jr. Effects based Operations. Applying Network centric Warfare in Peace, Crisis and War, Washington, DC: DoD CCRP, 2002.) EBO’s main result is the establishment of full and absolute control over all parties to the conflict (including armed conflict), and their complete manipulation under all circumstances. Including when the conflict is ongoing, when it is threatening, and when there is peace.

The essence of “net-centric warfare” is that it does not have a beginning or an end, it is being conducted on a permanent basis, and its objective is to ensure that the parties conducting the war have the ability to effect comprehensive control over all international actors. Embedding the “network” deprives countries, nations, armies, and governments of all vestiges of independence, sovereignty, and even separate existence, transforming them into closely controlled, programmed objects. It allows the implementation of a new model of direct planetary control, of global dominion of a new type, where the content, motivation, actions, and intentions of international actors are all subject to outside direction
.

It’s a design for global manipulation and total control on a world scale. That is apparent from the EBO definition. EBO tasks include forming a behavior structure not only among friends, but also neutrals and enemies, in other words, both enemies and neutrals act in accordance with a scenario imposed on them and are driven not by their own will but by the will of the EBO executors. If enemies, friends, and neutrals do that which the Americans want them to do, they become puppets even before their ultimate defeat. The battle is won before it even begins. EBO are conducted concurrently with military operations, during crises and during peacetime, which reflects the total character of net-centric wars.

A net-centric war’s strategic objective is the absolute control over all the participants of the political process on a global scale. Its tactical objective is to establishing the geopolitical aggressor’s control over the victim state’s assets, with the “transfer” largely taking place in a willing and voluntary manner since the attack is not perceived as aggression but rather as an impulse toward further development.

This makes net-centric war far more complex to implement than a traditional “hot” war, but it is also vastly more effective. Results of “hot wars” are usually challenged and dissipated over time (as shown by World Wars I and, especially, II). The effects of net-centric wars can last for centuries, until the aggressors and their basic needs change.

Net-centric war’s main front is located in the mental space, with the enemy’s goal being the destruction of traditional basic values of a given nation and implanting its own. The existence and structure of this type of war cannot be perceived on the level of mass consciousness. If the political elite of a society that is being targeted by net-centric war is not sufficiently qualified to identify this type of aggression and organize suitable response, the society itself is doomed to a crushing geopolitical defeat.

Specialists note another characteristic peculiar to net-centric wars, namely the absence of a rigid structure within the aggressor entity. We’d like to point out that it is due to the high degree of heterogeneity among the entity’s institutional elements. Individual and comparatively autonomous state and non-state elements of the aggressor are not part of some vertical hierarchy, instead they are connected by irregular horizontal interactions. The absence of hierarchy and regularity of interaction makes it difficult to clearly identify the existence and activities of the aggressor.

Due to the peculiar nature of NCW (Net-Centric Warfare), its technological structure (or the sum total of social technologies used to attack the target society) is very complex. NCW technologies include “multi-step combinations and intrigues whose instigators are not evident, a wide spectrum of means of influence, and using individuals who are ignorant of their role.” Most importantly, according to US experts, NCW is a post-industrial informational post-modern era differ from ordinary wars of industrial modern era by their desire to achieve an outwardly bloodless reapportionment of territories and resources. The objective is to sustain the image “developed democracies’” which are conducting NCWs in a wide variety of geopolitical contexts under the slogan of protecting human rights. In an era of total “humanization”, conducting combat operations is viewed as a flawed option. The world society sleeps better if outwardly everything looks fine. Thanks to modern technologies and gathered experience, even genocide can be pursued without gas chambers and mass shootings. It’s enough to create conditions to reduce birth rates and raise death rates. Success can also be achieved by dumbing down the nation through changing its stereotypes and behavior norms so that even an escalation of events to the level of violence is perceived as natural.

Today one of the characteristic manifestations of NCW in a globalizing world are “color revolutions”. A Color Revolution (CR) is a net-centric operation whose objective is the removal of existing political regimes in another country. It is based on “non-violent struggle” methods developed by George Sharp in the 1980s (a US product, one of net-centric technologies). The CR concept implies establishing full control over a country and its territory without the use of armed force, if possible. It can be achieved by applying “soft power” which US political scientist Joseph Nye Jr. defines as a state’s (or alliance’s or coalition’s) ability achieve desired international results through persuasion and not suppression, imposition, or compellence, which is characteristic of “hard power.” Soft power achieves its effect by inducing others to adhere to certain international norms of behavior, which leads to the desired outcome without applying compellence.

Color Revolution consequences.

For states and political systems, CRs contain aspects of colonialism. The interests of the target society are not taken into consideration, it is expendable “spare change.” The “revolutionaries” are the first to vanish from stage and, often, from life itself. People who sincerely begin to believe in CR ideals without suspecting that those ideals have been induced are the fuel for such revolutions, and are also expendable. The society itself is destabilized, social foundations are undermined, the respect for government disappears, dissatisfaction increases, and economy is in anything but a normal state. These are the ideal conditions to impose Western social models. US enters the country.

CR brings no benefit to the country’s political forces or society. The only beneficiary is the USA, which establishes a painless, non-violent, “soft” control over its new territory.

Modern Georgia is an example. It lost its sovereignty after the “Revolution of Roses” triggered serious transformations, destabilized the society, and led to the loss of about 20% of the country’s territory. Georgia is the most important US bridgehead in the Caucasus. It is so for a number of reasons:

– Georgia is an element of the Caucasus isthmus through which Russia obtains direct contact with Iran with which it wants to establish a strategic relationship.

– Georgia is a base for a force build-up and projection throughout the entire Caspian region, including Russia.
– Georgia is a transit country for energy resources from the Caspian to Europe.
Pursuing the main task of US geopolitics related to Russia and Caspian, the US took Georgia from under the last vestiges of Russia’s geopolitical influence and subjected it to its own direct geopolitical control. Georgia adopted an Atlanticist development vector and lost the last remnants of its sovereignty.


There are a number of other important factors.

1. The US seeks to establish direct military and strategic control over Azerbaijan and Armenia. Leaders of Azerbaijan are certain that the opposition demonstrations in March of 2011 and the planned attempts to oppose the existing constitutional order were organized from outside the country.

2. In order to ensure partnership with the EU, and particularly with Germany, the US created a cordon sannitaire extending from the cold northern seas through the Baltic States, Ukraine, Moldova, toward Georgia. Belarus is at the moment a breach in the cordon, with Poland filling that breach. The belt, consisting of Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Moldova, and Georgia, which cuts Russia off from Europe, was created by the US in order to achieve their top geopolitical objectives through the sequential initiation of CRs in these countries as part of the NCW against Russia.

In the last 20 years, US and NATO transformed Ukraine into a country hostile to Russia also through the application of net-centric technologies. The 2014 coup and 2014-2015 civil war were initiated by the US, which also provided informational, financial, and military support. Ukraine’s domestic and foreign policies are strictly anti-Russia in character.

3. Uzbekistan and Kirgiziya will remain key US geopolitical presence platforms in Central Asia. US will never abandon the intent to establish full control over the region. It will periodically destabilize the situation there in order to take Uzbekistan and Kirgiziya under control.

Usually such unsuccessful “velvet” coup attempts of the sort we observed in Uzbek Andijan or in the somewhat confusing “revolution cascade” in Kirgiziya are followed by harsher scenarios. The level of pressure is gradually increased. The “velvet” scenario is replaced by a harder line, including clashes with police, first casualties, pogroms, and then, as a rule, the situation is destabilized along ethnic lines since it is the hardest type of conflict to resolve. These actions are accompanied by a parallel creation of several social instability epicenters, the rise in economic problems, disruptions of the social situation, and a general domestic political polarization. The goal is to force these countries’ leaders to agree that they have lost control, that they no longer have power.

The outcome is the country’s territory passing under US control. The CR, should it be successful or semi-successful, is followed by more direct approaches which can ultimately lead to military operations as in Iraq and Libya.

Being a nuclear weapons state, Russia is considered by the US and NATO one of its main geopolitical adversaries. The current key geopolitical US objective is a regime change in Russia consisting of removing Vladimir Putin and his team from power. Analysis suggests that at the moment Ukraine, Caucasus, and Central Asia are the most advantageous places for the US to use in order to ratchet up pressure on Russian leadership. Maintaining the potential for violence in these locations will continue until they find a new, fresher source of conflict on Russian territory, with a potential for successful separatism, which could become a constant source of externally induced political pressure on Russian leadership.

A deep malaise: Pampore shows why India needs counter-terrorism institutions, not more martyrs.

Late one night in 2008, a warning message flashed on a computer screen at the Intelligence Bureau’s (IB’s) counter-terrorism unit’s Delhi office: One of hundreds of cellphone numbers on a counter-terrorism watchlist had just come alive. There was just one single officer on duty, charged with scanning through dozens of simultaneous calls, in the hope of catching a useful conversation. Idly, he switched to the new call — and began listening in to the first minutes of the tragedy we now call 26/11.

It was pure, blind luck: The SIM cards used by the Lashkar-e-Taiba had been planted on the group by a Jammu and Kashmir Police intelligence asset. Had the 26/11 attackers been given different SIM cards, the conversations that saved dozens of lives and exposed the perpetrators may never have been detected.

Thousands of kilometres away in Cheltenham, the United Kingdom’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) had enjoyed a ringside view of the plot for months — culled directly from the Lashkar’s own computers. Though they warned India of imminent attack, the GCHQ provided few details, fearful of embarrassing their ally, Pakistan (the bloody basta**s). India found out the truth only because the dice rolled its way.

You guys are naive. This is standard practice in Haryana. whenever there is draught and irrigation water supply is tightly rationed ( you get One ghri or 22 min for 5 beeghas) tow person go to the irrigation canal. They cut the bank with a wet rope and make small channel). Rest of the work is done by water itself. By morning all of the fielsds and ponds are flooded. Police investigates and always come to the conclusion that some channels made by rodents were responsible :mrgreen:

Well it a simple strong ,thick jute rope. One guy goes to water and another goes to the outside of the embankment. They start pulling the wet rope in a see-saw movement, cutting a small channel through the embankment. Soon Water from canal starts pouring out and making the channel bigger and bigger. IF you see the pic you note the canal has a road on one side. Road is as high as embankment so one nothing could be done on that side. That is the reason they used the wet rope trick on other side.Salam

VHP leader shot dead in Agra

He is a cold blooded murder of an SC/ST boy, where is RG, INC, Mayawati and SP. This is a murder like Alqaq, where is the morality in this.

All the 4 should be shot in a similar manner to prevent further instances.

This is an ominous sign.
Desh needs "Gandhi's" for another 10/15 years at least to ensure Shri Modi is in power.

Thanks for that. As opposed to using shovels, why is this faster or easier?

P Chidambaram got Ishrat’s LeT link dropped: G K Pillai - Bharti Jain, ToI
P Chidambaram in his capacity as home minister had personally overseen controversial changes in the Centre's affidavit in the Ishrat Jahan case in 2009 to drop any references to her Lashkar-e-Taiba links, G K Pillai, home secretary at the time, told TOI on Saturday.

According to Pillai, Chidambaram recalled the file from the joint secretary a month after the original affidavit — which described Ishrat and her slain aides as LeT operatives — was filed in SC.

"Mr Chidambaram, who was then the home minister, had asked for the file from the joint secretary, saying that the affidavit needed to be reworked. Only after the affidavit was revised, as directed by the minister, did the file come to me," Pillai told TOI.

Chidambaram did not respond to calls and text messages seeking his version. The original affidavit, filed by the home ministry in Supreme Court in August 2009, had cited IB inputs that Ishrat and her three aides — Javed Shaikh alias Pranesh Pillai, Zeeshan Johar and Amjad Ali Rana — were part of a Lashkar sleeper cell. It had objected to a CBI probe into the encounter.

In the second affidavit filed in September 2009, the home ministry said the IB inputs did not constitute conclusive proof of the terror antecedents of those killed. "All such inputs do not constitute proof... The Centre is in no way concerned with any police action nor does it condone or endorse any unjustified or excessive action," said the affidavit, as reported by TOI on April 1, 2010.

"If on a proper consideration of the facts it is found that an independent inquiry and investigation has to be carried by CBI or otherwise, the Union of India would have no objection to such a course and would abide by such orders which the court may deem fit to pass," it added.

G K Pillai on Saturday said that not only Javed Shaikh and the two Pakistanis killed in the encounter were LeT operatives, but even Ishrat knew that "something was wrong". "Ishrat and Javed stayed as a couple at hotels/lodges in UP and even Ahmedabad. She was clearly a cover for him as well as well as others of the module," he said.

Ishrat was hailed as a martyr by LeT on its website as well as its mouthpiece Ghazwa Times, though this was later withdrawn.

The focus on her Lashkar links was renewed in 2010 when LeT operative David Coleman Headley, quoting senior commander of the terror, Zaki-urRahman Lakhvi, told National Investigation Agency that the girl from Mumbra was member of a terror cell. However, two paragraphs which dwelt on this part of his interrogation were dropped from the final report submitted to the Gujarat high court later that year.

Earlier this month, Headley again referred to his conversation with Lakhvi to tell a Mumbai court through video-conference that Ishrat was part of women's wing of LeT

What it means is:

1) In normal day to day life, if your crops are desperate for water but your turn at the canal water is after a few days, people take drastic action to break canals.

2) In above scenario, you can break a canal but it has to be done in a way that no one suspects you( because Breaking a canal is illegal ). Using a shovel would leave enough clues and you land up in jail.

3) So you make a small slit in the canal embankment using a rope. The flow of water in canal is fast enough to make the breach wider and wider till the embankment breaks into pieces in a few hours. The police can't blame you because it would look natural breakage caused by rats digging holes into canal wall.

This is probably not what the jat agitators did though. They had no fear of the police.

Time to take in PC and the gang and submit them to interrogation. The SC judge can watch to ensure no undue force was used.

Cant belive the media is appreciating the killing of a VHP person in cold blood, they never condemed the TJAC, Owasi, RG, that ILLah guys inflammatory speeches in Hyderabad. As the JD(U) leader said in Hindi, BJP (and read Hindus) should be allowed to be born itself. This Hypocracy ecosystem giving protection to the murderers is stifling.

Time to give BCCI the Bharat Bevkoof Award for agreeing to this venue - apparently a big shot there, Thakur, is a Bee Jay Pee member no less, so time to give him walking orders out the door as well.
Why would BCCI agree to host a match against Pakistan in Himachal? What's wrong with scheduling that in, say, Malappuram, Malloostan where the Pakistanis would feel right at home with their supporters?
Or, even in the Jay Enn Yoo ishtadium in Dilli? This makes absolutely no sense. Sad that it has to be an INC guvrmand in Himachal that stands up for common sense. Yes, I remember who Capt. Batra was. How many Indians remember today? This should be a national shame if there was any for those Indians who don't.

Is someone generating a Petition from India that I can sign on this?

The government is clearly concerned about the possibility of a "hybrid war" (".5 War," "Color Revolution," etc.)

The Home Ministry has been allocated over Rs 77,000 crore in 2016-17 budget, a steep hike of 24.56 per cent, majority of which have been earmarked for paramilitary forces like CRPF and BSF, responsible for internal security and border guarding duties ....

In the 2016-17 budget, a total of Rs 50,176.45 crore has been allocated to seven paramilitary forces.

Among these forces, Central Reserve Police Force, deployed for internal security, action against Maoists and operations against militants, has been earmarked the highest at Rs 16,228.18 crore.
