The fallacies behind India's Pakistan policy - Windows Live

  • tags: no_tag

    • Dangerous misconceptions

      Brahma Chellaney

    • Singh’s recent statements in Parliament point to the fallacies on which he has been reconstructing his Pakistan policy. His personal imprint on that policy bears at least eight perilous misconceptions.
    • One, political geography is unalterable.
    • Two, India and Pakistan are locked by a shared destiny
    • Three, the alternative to a policy seeking to placate a terror-exporting adversary is war.
    • Four, India cannot emerge as a world power without making peace with Pakistan.
    • Five, as India has nothing to hide and indeed “our conduct is an open book,” it can let Pakistan include any issue in the bilateral agenda.
    • Six, if Pakistan merely acknowledges what is incontrovertible, that is enough for India to change policy course.
    • Seven, high-level dialogue and “meaningful” dialogue can be optically delinked
    • Eight, diplomacy of hope and prayer makes sense

Two dangerous ideas - It does not stop at 49.5 percent

  • tags: no_tag

    • There are two dangerous ideas floating around and we can't seem to decide which is worse.

      The first relates to the massive diplomatic fiasco committed by the UPA Government. One can tell it is a big blunder from the fact that intellectuals of various hues took more than a week to cook up theories in the Government's defense. The major idea right now is that it is a display of Gandhigiri by Manmohan Singh, albeit at an international level.
    • The second idea is that of global nuclear deterrence. A set of people seem to totally like this idea and coincidentally these were the same set of people who were the leading Nuke cheerleaders.
    • We can already read the headlines on New York Times: President of France invokes Gandhi, pleads Indians to forgive etc. Try putting that scenario to the global Nuke defense setting.

      Using backward induction, once India signs up for this stupid concept, it is a virtual guarantee to the loonies that there is NOT going to be a Nuclear retaliation.

    • Environmental campaigner Bianca Jagger has called on the Church of England to rethink its investment in a company involved in an Indian mining project.

      Ms Jagger says the operation is taking place on a mountain considered sacred by the tribe that lives there.

    • Bianca Jagger is supported by UK-based campaign groups
    • Vedanta insists the mining project in the remote and inaccessible Niyamgiri hills in the eastern Indian state of Orissa is ethically and environmentally sound.
    • The Church has shares in Vedanta worth £2.5m ($4.1m).

      Vedanta is about to start mining bauxite in the Niyamgiri hills, to be processed at a refinery that has already been built in the area.

India’s democracy has its flaws but it is still a democracy « A wide angle view of India

  • tags: no_tag

    • India is very proud of her democracy, despite the wheeling and dealing that goes on. But according to The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Index of Democracy* India is not a full democracy. It’s a flawed democracy. That’s difficult to argue with. It’s not just the electoral process, political culture, political participation, and pluralism which is taken into account while taking the democracy score, but also indicators like voter turnout, civil liberties, the functioning of government and political participation.
    • …. but the great thing we have the democracy gene and can hope one day to be a full democracy. The good news is that no dictator will be able to get such a huge geographical and diverse area such as India under his/her thumb. No invader has managed it in India’s history.

Can't we educate hundreds of millions of Hindus about various dangers facing Bharat and Hindu Dharma. Then why would we waste our time with a Muslim Rashtriya Manch?

      unites,” said Shri KS Sudarshan, former Sarsanghachalak of RSS. (The HIstory of India proves that Hindus & Muslims were not united before British period & even in British period. Pakistan founder Jinnah said that Hindus & Muslims are two battling nations and they can't come together in any regime. Has RSS forgotten these words of Jinnah?)

        -- Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, Janata Party President and fomer Union Law Minister made on July 29,2009
    • Ms. Gandhi had been awarded the Order of Leopold by the
      King of Belgium in 2007, and this award I have verified is a title
      conferred on her by the sovereign power of Belgium and thus
      constitutes an allegiance to that country.
    • Is there a link between Order of Leopald Medal conferred on Antonia
      Maino and Belgium achieving the third largest trading partnership
      status (after US and UK) with India?

      What a miracle that Belgium which is smaller than Mizoram should have
      achieved this status in 2006?

    • Shulka, who was livid at the goof up, wanted to file a complaint with the cabin crew but alleged that he got no help from them. He also said when he tried to meet the captain of the flight after they landed, the cabin crew were rude and set the security staff upon him.

      "After the flight took off, I ordered a veg roll, a product of Cafe Coffee Day, and juice. Before eating, I checked my pack to confirm if it was veg and saw 'VEG' written clearly on the cover. However, while eating I found its taste unfamiliar and when I checked again, I found meat pieces in it. We are staunch Hindu brahmins and it was very shocking," said Shukla.

    • निश्चित तौर पर प्रधानमंत्री अमेरिकी दबाव में तो काम करना चाहते है, पर कांग्रेस के दबाव में वे काम नहीं करना चाहते है। अमेरिकी दबाव में ज्यादा वो सुरक्षित महसूस करेंगे। अगर अमेरिका का वरदहस्त उनके उपर है तो बचाव रहेगा और इसमें कांग्रेस भी उनका कुछ नहीं बिगाड़ पाएगी।
    • प्रधानमंत्री कहीं न कहीं यह बरदाश्त नहीं पा रहे है कि कई मसले पर उनसे ज्यादा सोनिया गांधी प्रणव मुखर्जी, एके एंटोनी और अहमद पटेल पर विश्वास करती है। समय-समय पर कई नीतिगत फैसले में उपरोक्त तीन नेताओं की सलाह प्रधानमंत्री को माननी पड़ती है। शर्म अल शेख की घटना के बाद ही उपरोक्त तीन नेताओं के साथ ही सोनिया गांधी ने बैठक की। बैठक के बाद सोनिया गांधी ने प्रधानमंत्री को मैसेज दिया जिसमें अपनी मर्जी से प्रधानमंत्री के फैसले पर नाराजगी व्यक्त की।

Shivsena showered  flowers on her, but outside the court ! What about the action to be taken against Sadhvi’s tortures? Declarations were made of announcing the names and addresses of the cruel ATS officers who tortured the Sadhvi and her associates; but they too got burnt on the funeral pyre of Mr. Hemant Karkare, ATS Chief.

    • पश्चिमी सत्ता संस्थान और वहाँ के मीडिया को गाँधी परिवार से खास लगाव है, और यह स्वाभाविक भी है, क्योंकि ये लोग पश्चिमी शिक्षा-दीक्षा के कारण वहाँ के रंग-ढंग, आचार-विचार में पूरी तरह से ढल चुके होते हैं और फ़िर इनसे कोई काम निकलवाना (यानी कोई विशेष नीतिगत मामला, अंतर्राष्ट्रीय मंचों और समझौतों, UNO आदि में पश्चिम के पक्ष में वोटिंग या “हाँ/ना” में मुंडी हिलाना, तथा अपना माल बेचने के लिये परमाणु करार, हथियार सौदे या क्रूड तेल बेचना आदि करना) आसान हो जाता है।

    • Temples of 'Vir' or 'Purush' who reclaimed flooded lands by bunds are found in Goa. This means that the knowledge of reclaimation of land from sea was known to ancient Goans.

    • अपनी करगिल यात्रा के दौरान जाबांज शहीदों को याद करने के साथ ही प्वाईंट 5353 की कड़वी सच्चाई से भी सामना हुआ. ऐसा नहीं है कि भारतीय जवानों ने जो हासिल किया उसकी तारीफ नहीं होनी चाहिए. लेकिन ये याद रखना होगा कि अधूरी जीत, हार से ज्यादा शर्मनाक होती है। हक की लडाई में समझोते नही होते, लेकिन कारगिल की फतह में समझोते की बू भर नही आती है, कारगिल की पहाड़ियो पर समझोते के निशान  मिलते है। हम कुछ पाकर इतने खुश हुये कि जो खो दिया उसकी तरफ पीठ मोड़ ली, दुश्मन लौटते लौटते भी कुछ बचाकर ले गया तो ये उसकी जीत है। पहाडियो पर आज भी हमारा एक इलाका एसा है जो हमारा नही है।

The Indian National Congress’ Last Hurrah -

  • tags: no_tag

    • The Indian National Congress’ Last Hurrah
    • Radha Rajan
    • The Cabinet Mission – May, 1946

    • Viceroy invites Congress to form Interim Government and the Congress accepts – August 12, 1946  
      • Muslim League declares Direct Action Day – August 16, 1946
      • Communal riots in Bengal and Bihar
      • Communal riots in Bombay – 1st September, 1946
    • The mind-games that Gandhi thought he was playing brilliantly with Jinnah and the British eventually boomeranged on the nation. Jinnah felt betrayed by Gandhi and the Viceroy when the League was not invited to form the interim government on its own as per Clause 8 of the statement of June 16 and the Muslim League rejected the Cabinet Mission proposals in toto making the threat of a violent eruption by the League very real. But contrary to what the British government wanted, the Muslim League did not unleash violence on the 29th of June even though they did reject the State Paper and refuse to co-operate with the Cabinet Mission. 
    • Almost as if they wanted to ignite the tinder-box of seething anger in the Muslim League, the Viceroy invites the Congress to form the interim government on the 12th of August. The stage had been set for the imperial government’s back-up plan to be unraveled with perfect timing. The Viceroy did not invite the Muslim League to form the interim government after the Congress rejected the interim government proposals but went ahead to invite the Congress to form the interim government after the League rejected the Mission proposals.
    • An enraged Jinnah declared ‘direct action’ on the 16th of August, with the sole objective of making the sovereign state of Pakistan a reality. Partition, which had been averted by the groupings clause in the State paper and the proposal to make a three-tier constitution, was now imminent – thanks to Gandhi’s megalomaniac insistence on disregarding the general view of the Congress Working Committee to accept the State Paper as a starting point for the transfer of power, and on being the only person to negotiate on behalf of the Congress and by extension, it is worth repeating, the whole nation barring the Muslims. Whose agenda was Gandhi really serving?
    • In August 1946 after Jinnah blamed Gandhi squarely for aborting the Cabinet Mission proposals for transfer of power, and to emphasize the point that Muslims were not only a separate nation but also hostile to all non-Islamic faiths, he called upon the Muslims to launch direct action, not against the British government, but going by the horrific numbers of Hindus killed in Calcutta on August 16th alone, against the Hindus. Additionally it also served to debunk Gandhi’s stubborn insistence that Muslims can and will live peacefully with Hindus if only the Hindus would serve them wholeheartedly and without political motives.[8] 

Freedom Movement turns retrograde -

  • tags: no_tag

    • Contrary to Aurobindo’s assertion that passive resistance was a necessary tactical move to invoke and strengthen in citizens the much-needed qualities of endurance, capacity for suffering pain and punishment, unflinching courage and the moral strength to ultimately launch if need be, a full-scale war against foreign rulers, Gandhi’s passive resistance became a goal in itself for ordinary ‘Gandhian’ Indians to practise and achieve successfully. But the unanswered question remains - what did Gandhi really desire for the Indians who followed him on the streets? Self-Rule as inner liberation, Home-Rule as the Home Rule League wanted or small victories with passive resistance in local issues? What goal did he explicitly set for the INC?
    • Gandhi's passive resistance only delayed political independence and facilitated the exit of the British on their terms and at a time of their choosing. Thus:             

      Because Gandhi's resistance to British rule was 'passive', it was essentially non-violent.
      Passive resistance by Gandhi's own admission could not be employed for a general objective, but only locally for a limited purpose.
      Passive resistance was therefore not intended to end British rule in India or for India's political independence.
      Passive resistance was meant only to resist specific, unfair and repressive laws in India.
      Gandhi's political career in India was only a continuation of his career in South Africa, both in terms of the methods he employed and his objectives.

Worshippers cry foul as Madhya Pradesh 'de-fangs' Nagpanchmi

  • tags: no_tag

    • Nagpanchmi, the festival of snakes, which was celebrated Sunday, left many Hindu worshippers disappointed when they went to temples but found no snakes. The forest department had taken snake charmers to task for displaying the reptiles.

      Nagpanchami is a festival of snakes celebrated on the fifth day of the bright fortnight in the Hindu holy month of Shravan. People visit temples of Hindu god Shiva, worship snakes and offer them milk besides alms to the snake charmer who brings them.


      But now, there are no snake charmers seen in the towns and cities as the forest department has warned them of strict action if they bring the reptiles on Nagpanchmi.

      No human rights for Hindus abroad?

      By Dr Pravin Togadia
    • Hindu Organisations try their best to reduce suffering of most Hindus impacted by such ethnic violence, racist brutality and socio-political discrimination. But the damage is vast, time is short & resourceful hands are limited. It is time for Hindus to RE-GROUP, RE-NETWORK and RE-SURGE to stand up democratically against any justice.

Liberhan: Rock and a hard place -

  • tags: no_tag

    • By a curious coincidence, the Justice S.C. Mohapatra Commission probing the Kandhamal riots of 2008 submitted its interim report almost simultaneously with the final report of the Justice Liberhan Commission on the post-1992 violence following demolition of the Babri structure in Ayodhya.
    • Hindus are caught between a rock and a hard place, squeezed between Muslim obduracy and Christian belligerence, both funded and backed by external powers, while the Indian state refuses to support the legitimate needs of its Hindu populace, and even denies Hindu religio-cultural identity in its pursuit of secularism. We thus have the bizarre asymmetry of minority rights vis-à-vis an undefined majority that is denied form and name, but blamed for resisting its own negation.
    • The unrest at Amarnath and Kandhamal shows that regardless of electoral outcomes, Hindus can face both the rock and the hard place simultaneously, and will not allow monotheists to walk all over them.

    • A meeting of Bhagvatkars (Preachers of Bhagvat), Pravachankars (those who give spiritual discourses) and H.B.Ps was organised here by the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS). Three police men in civil dress came there before the meeting commenced. (Police remain present for Dharmajagruiti (awakening people to follow Dharma) meetings of the Samiti. Do they ever attend the secret meetings held by SIMI (Students’ Islamic Movement of India) which is engaged in anti-national activities ? This kind of attitude of the police, impairs their success! - Editor SP)
    • Pro-Hindus : From where have you come?
      Police :  From the police department.
      Pro-Hindus : This meeting is for the invitees only.
      Police :  We attend any programme that is held.
      Pro-Hindus : The people attending this meeting are not comfortable due to your presence, as this is a private meeting.
      Police :  We are Hindus too. We have orders from our seniors, hence we have come here. We shall not interfere in your programme.
      Pro-Hindus : We know that; but if you have finished with whatever you wanted to find out, then please leave, so that we can continue our meeting freely, without undue stress.

      Hearing this, the police were ready to leave; but before that they took down the names of the organisers and also enquired about a past activist of the HJS who is inactive these days.

    • dear sir:

      i read your well-written article on the sad lack of charitable giving in india.
    • "hindu rate of growth"? this was a racist and insulting term coined by a communist, raj krishna, for whom this is his 15-min -- and sole -- claim to fame.

      as a paper that does not believe in equal-opportunity denigration of religions, you should stop using this horrible term forthwith. after all, i have read your paper for decades, and i have never seen you refer to pakistan's or somalia's growth rate as the "islamic rate of growth", or rwanda's or haiti's as "the christian rate of growth".
    • and we have good reason to believe (see angus maddison) that the historical and actual "hindu rate of growth" was the highest in the world -- after all, india was the richest country in the world till around 1700.
    • once again, let me request you to abjure the offensive phrase "hindu rate of growth" in your writing. it is demeaning, it is not historically accurate, and it is racist.

      thank you

    • Kargil war veteran Baldev Singh was shot dead and robbed by three men in Bhajanpura, North-east District of Delhi. He was carrying Rs 8.45 lakh. The incident occurred around 10 am barely 50 metres from a police picket — reportedly manned by two personnel...”
    • The murder of an Army veteran, a man who fought in the last war we faced, in, as media is fond of describing, broad daylight, a short distance from a police picket where two worthies in khaki were reportedly on duty. The police claim to have ‘cracked’ the case; four men have been arrested; the story has been duly published; and, that is the last we shall ever hear of this murder.
    • We have an annual ceremony to honour the unknown soldier at Amar Jawan Jyoti, the memorial at India Gate, and that’s about all. We do not celebrate our spectacular military victory in 1971 lest Pakistanis are offended and reminded of Mrs Indira Gandhi’s audacious decision to rend asunder Mohammed Ali Jinnah’s “moth-eaten Pakistan” and deliver Bangladeshis from the rapacious tyranny of West Pakistan. There’s a sneaking suspicion that December 16 is studiously ignored by our politicians (including, and it must be noted, those of the BJP) because the observance of Victory Day could ‘hurt’ Islamist sentiments at home.
    • So, it is not entirely surprising that the Government should also ignore Vijay Diwas — July 26 — the day a defeated, devastated and demoralised Pakistani Army turned tail and fled from the heights of Kargil, more precisely, the few remaining bunkers in its control, leaving its dead to rot in the rocky wilderness of Drass, Kaksar and Mashkoh Valley.

Maoist recalls final moments of Laxmanananda, claims cops fled

  • tags: no_tag

    • Bhubaneswar
    • Reconstructing the final moments of the killing of VHP leader Laxmanananda Saraswati and his four associates in Kandhamal’s Jalespeta ashram in August 2008, Orissa police said that a Maoist who surrendered this week claimed there were four policemen at the ashram but they fled when the Maoists announced that they had come looking for the Swami.
    • The Swami’s murder, according to the Maoist, had been planned days in advance by Sabyasachi Panda, head of Orissa State Committee of the CPI (Maoist).

      “Other than the six who took part in the killing, there were several who were entrusted with blocking roads and providing logistics. A few days before the murder, some of the Maoists did a reconnaissance of the area. The cadres also had an ambush plan if they came across police,” Singh said.

    • Brekwada told police there was no transparency in the organization. “We were all brainwashed into believing that life in the jungles would be great. But we found it to be the opposite. Besides, leaders from Andhra Pradesh had the final say on everything though we did all the work,” he said.

'Clinton distancing from Obama' -

  • tags: no_tag

    • Claiming that differences have emerged between United States President Barack Obama [ Images ] and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton [ Images ] on foreign policy issues, an American magazine on Friday suggested that Hillary Clinton's trip to India and Thailand has been her way to distance herself from the White House.

      "The trip to India and Thailand, in one sense, is Clinton's way of literally and figuratively distancing herself from Obama, her way of letting us know she has better policies for dealing with Beijing [ Images ]," wrote Forbes columnists Gordon G Chang.

      Author of the book The Coming Collapse of China, Gordon said that during her recent visit to India, Clinton devoted most of her time to relationship-building events.

      "Clinton's concept of siding with another large democracy seems much more attractive -- and sustainable," he wrote, adding most important, the US and India share values.
