Sabarimala desecerated by Christians again , Move to hush up the shocking incident

Sabarimala desecerated by Christians again , Move to hush up the shocking incident

Pampa: Sabarimala Temple, which is situated right at the heart of Christian belt in Mid Travancore region, has been haunting the Christians now for decades. They have attempted all sort of crookedness to destroy the sanctity and the temple itself every now and then. But all those efforts back lashed and the fame of this Ayyappa temple has multiplied over the time.

If their forefathers set fire to this temple years back hoping to root out the annual pilgrimage which acted as a deterrent to their Conversion and Forest encroaching agenda, now 9 Christian youth following their forefathers route ventured into the temple premises with Meat and Alcohol with the sole aim of desecrating the temple sanctity.

This shocking incident happened on 3rd of March. The Christian gang parked their vehicle near Pampa and went to Sannidhanam. Devaswom Gaurds were not in their office at that time. Later they were found in a inebriated condition in the Sannidhanam by the devaswom gaurds. They have taken their party snaps pictures as from sannidhanam and on holy 18 steps. Although devaswom gaurds handed them over to Pampa Police station, they have been released without registering any cases following high level intervention.

Home Ministry is keeping tight lipped about the whole issue and efforts are undergoing to hush up the matter. Although Executive officer has demanded an urgent explanation from Pampa Devaswom Manager, nothing has furnished so far. Various Hindu organisations and Hindu Aikya Vedi strongly condemned the incident and demanded severe action against the culprits. Hands of Christian Missionary mafia are suspected in the incident.

Catholic Church disappointed over quashing of CVC appointment

Catholic Church disappointed over quashing of CVC appointment

Reaction of the church on this decision is surprising. The official reaction on the official website of Catholic Church is- Catholic civil servant resigns and other is church people disappointed over quashing of CVC appointment-(www.indiancatholic.in)

Post of CVC is apolitical. Church should be aware of the fact that this is a constitutional post and constitution does not favour any cast or religion. Catholic Church is trying to convince people that it is Hindu BJP that is behind this game and which forced Thomas to ultimately leave the post.


(title unknown): "



Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi’s defiantly clandestine attempt to plant a Catholic Christian officer P.J Thomas with questionable integrity as the Central Vigilance Commissioner failed miserably when a Three Member Bench of the Supreme Court of India presided over by the Honourable Chief Justice S. H. Kapadia declared the appointment of P.J Thomas as illegal and void in law in their Order passed on 3rd March 2011.


I am quoting below the last paragraph of the above mentioned Order issued by the Three Member Bench consisting of Hon’ble Chief Justice S. H. Kapadia, Hon’ble Justice K.S. Panicker Radhakrishnan and Hon’ble Justice Swatanter Kumar. (For details see the copy of the Order attached)
56. For the above reasons, it is declared that the recommendation dated 3rd September, 2010 of the High Powered Committee recommending the name of Shri P.J. Thomas as Central Vigilance Commissioner under the proviso to Section 4(1) of the 2003 Act is non-est in law and, consequently, the impugned appointment of Shri P.J. Thomas as Central Vigilance Commissioner is quashed.
57. The writ petitions are accordingly allowed with no order as to costs.
CJI (S. H. Kapadia)
J (K.S. Panicker Radhakrishnan)
J (Swatanter Kumar)
New Delhi;
March 3, 2011

The common people of India offer their fervent and reverential salutations to the the Supreme Court of India in general and the Chief Justice S.H Kapadia in particular for having taken deterrent action to restore the dignity and decorum to the Constitutional Post of the Central Vigilance Commissioner.

Even after the Supreme Court had issued an Order declaring the appointment of Central Vigilance Commissioner P.J Thomas as illegal, he did not send his letter of resignation to the President of India. If I have to believe newspaper reports, only after the Government of India had Officially Notified the vacancy in the post of the Central Vigilance Commissioner, did P.J Thomas feel obliged to send his Letter of Resignation and that too to the Prime Minister!

A Selection Committee consisting of the Prime Minister, the Union Home Minister and the Leader of the Opposition (Smt Sushma Swaraj) in the Lok Sabha considered the following three names put up by the Department of Personnel for appointment as Central Vigilance Commissioner at a meeting held on 3rd September 2010 at 7:30 PM at the Prime Minister’s Residence.
1. Shri Bijoy Chatterjee, lAS (73 Batch West Bengal Cadre)
2. Shri PJ Thomas lAS (73 Batch Kerala Cadre)
3. Shri Subbaroyan Krishnan, lAS (retd 75 Batch Uttaranchal Cadre)

It is clear from the Minutes of the Meeting held on 3rd September 2010 that a decision to appoint Sri P.J Thomas was jointly taken by the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and the Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram unlawfully overruling the objection raised by the Leader of the Opposition Smt Sushma Swaraj. She had opposed the appointment of P.J Thomas on grounds of lack of integrity. (Please see all the backup papers including the Minutes of this Meeting and the dissenting file noting by Smt Sushma Swaraj.)

What is very shocking to note is that the Department of Personnel had deliberately avoided making any reference to the intimate connection of P.J Thomas to the Pamoline corruption case of the Civil Supplies Department of Kerala dating back to 1991. The fact that he was facing a criminal charge along with K. Karunakaran, the then Chief Minister of Kerala was also suppressed in the Note that was put up to the Selection Committee which considered and finalized the appointment of P.J Thomas as the Central Vigilance Commissioner.

As of date, Shri P.J. Thomas is Accused No. 8 in criminal case CC 6 of 2003 pending in the Court of Special Judge, Thiruvananthapuram with respect to the offences under Section 13(2) read with Section 13(1)(d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 and under Section 120B of the Indian Penal Code (“IPC” for short) [hereinafter referred to as the “Palmolein case”].

Finally the High Powered Committee (referred to as the HPC by the Supreme Court in their Final Order on P.J Thomas) (referred to as the Selection Committee in my note above) has lost sight of another very vital factor. This can best be explained in the words of the Supreme Court in their Final Order of 3rd March 2011.

“The HPC must also take into consideration the question of INSTITUTIONAL COMPETENCY into account. If the selection adversely affects institutional competency and functioning then it shall be the duty of the HPC not to recommend such a candidate. Thus, the institutional integrity is the primary consideration which the HPC is required to consider while making recommendation under Section 4 for appointment of Central Vigilance Commissioner. In the present case, this vital aspect has not been taken into account by the HPC while recommending the name of Shri P.J. Thomas for appointment as Central Vigilance Commissioner. We do not wish to discount personal integrity of the candidate. What we are emphasizing is that institutional integrity of an institution like CVC has got to be kept in mind while recommending the name of the candidate. Whether the incumbent would or would not be able to function? Whether the working of the Institution would suffer? If so, would it not be the duty of the HPC not to recommend the person.”

Dr Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram are only slavish tenants-at-will in the International Zamindari of the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi. These two men in bonded labour had no other option than to just put their seal of official approval on the specially chosen nominee of this fascist dictator from Italy. It is clear that both of them were unwilling to even look at the larger moral and Constitutional issue of institutional integrity of an institution like CVC” legitimately raised by the Hon’ble Chief Justice S. H. Kapadia, Hon’ble Justice K.S. Panicker Radhakrishnan and Hon’ble Justice Swatanter Kumar of the Supreme Court of India in their Final Order dated 3rd March 2011.

The UPA Government under the stranglehold of the MOST CORRUPT AND MOST VENAL Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi has clearly demonstrated that it has contempt for the Constitutional instruments of the Indian State. We have a President with dubious antecedents. We had a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India Chief Injustice Balakrishnan with even more dubious antecedents. During his tenure of office, judicial corruption at all levels of the judiciary in India reached its peak. For all the services rendered by him to the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi, he has been decorated with the totally undeserved post of the Chairman, National Human Rights Commission. Earlier the special nominee of the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi was Navin Chavla who was indicted by the Shah Commission in 1977.

The Italian colonial Government of the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi admitted defeat in the Lok Sabha in the P.J Thomas case. Faced by an unrelenting opposition in the Parliament, the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Monday accepted ‘full responsibility’ and admitted ‘an error of judgment’ in choosing scam-tainted P.J. Thomas as the head of India's anti-corruption watchdog.

Our 'King's Speech'

Our 'King's Speech': "THE TIMES OF INDIA
08 March, 2011

Tarun Vijay

If you haven't seen 'King's Speech', the movie that won four Oscars, please do so, whenver you can get a chance. It's a great story of a head of state who would go to any length to prove worthy to his subjects' expectations. He was not the Prime Minister, and could have chosen to live a comfortable royal life without caring what his people thought about him. He was not supposedly accountable for his day-to-day affairs and it was up to him to decide whether he would overcome the disability he had or just live with it ignoring sentiments of masses. The story revolves around his disability of stammering. At the beginning of war, he was supposed to address the nation. People naturally think he is the source of strength to them and so he decides that he just can't afford to make people, his nation's citizens, lose faith in him.

And surely, he does everything possible to rise in the public eye. And in the eyes of his family.

Watching the entire movie, I was sad and reflected on the kings and queens we have, in a supposedly democratic country, who give a damn to standing truthful in the public esteem and hardly ever care to value people's expectations from them.

The man, our own king, being the chief executive officer of the government, admitted in Jammu last week that he takes full responsibility for the Thomas's appointment as CVC.

That's it? Period?

Just count some of these issues: 2G, CWG, Adarsh, Antrix-Devas deal, non-availability of artillery guns, faulty purchase of the US's old helicopters, government unwilling to bring back black money stashed in Swiss banks, curtains on dear Italian Ottavio Quattrocci's case after his London bank account was unfrozen officially, perhaps in 'honour' of the India's law-enforcement agencies. All this has happened before the vigilant eyes of our king. Why did he keep a silence? If he is the epitome of all honesty, impeccable integrity, virtuous nobility and above all a disarming humility, where are the principles of good governance and the accountability of the kingship upheld, in this case of the office of India's CEO? India has witnessed the gravest cases of corruption. The loot of India's wealth is admitted by event the government. Should the mere admittance of such cases and putting behind bars a few small operators make the matter end? Who is the main culprit and who has been supposedly misguiding the Prime Minister or putting pressure on him to keep his eyes wide shut on all the wrong-doings around him? I have said many times that I love the man and trust him, but then shouldn't he be concerned to keep the dignity and image of his high and exalted office intact in the eyes of people who would like to see a king above all suspicion and also hard on wrong-doers? Serving two terms is no big deal, Lal Bahadur Shastri served less than a quartet of it, but he still remains the most revered Prime Minister we ever had. It's not the period, but the quality of governance and the actual life of the man that counts more. Manmohan Singh must act sternly and save the grace before the grace acts harshly on him.

Why no action was even contemplated to be taken till the opposition and the vigilant media made noises? And for God's sake, what is the position and stand of Mrs Sonia Gandhi in all these wrong doings? Has she descended on our land from Mars or Venus? Why is she, the source of all power and 'tyag', 'tapasya' and 'balidan' left without being asked a single question? Have you ever seen a more terrified and 'hesitant out of some unknown fear' media and the political leadership?

In stark contrast to what we are meekly witnessing in our great democracy, three recent examples would do well to keep us informed about how sham our polity and 'courageous' media is and how mature and accountable democracies, whether in governance or in academic circles behave.

The first example is related to Japan's foreign minister Seiji Maehara, who stepped down after it was told to him that the three thousand dollars he received, spread over five years from a 72-year-old restaurant owner naturalised Japanese citizen of Korean origin, were illegal. The restaurant owner didn't get any benefit by giving Seiji Maehara a 'grand' sum of about 1.5 lakh Indian rupees. Still the foreign minister was shown the door.

The second case is about German defence minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg's resignation. He was the most popular 'star' leader, everybody believed he would be the next chancellor after Merkel. But he was found to have plagiarized his university doctorate thesis in 2006, when he had not even entered active politics. Once the facts were known, he was not only stripped of his PhD, but was asked to resign.

The third case is about corruption in the divine area of British academics, London School of Economics, which is alleged to have accepted 1.5 million pounds in 'donation' from the son of Libya's discredited dictator Gaddafi, who had his PhD approved and awarded by LSE. Not only this, LSE also benefitted from a 2.2-million-pound contract with Libya in the name of training its civil servants. Immediately after the revelations found media attention, LSE's director, Howard Davies, was made to resign pending an inquiry into the entire episode.

Nothing is happening that puts a smile on our faces. In Kashmir, the last hope of Kasmiri Hindus going back to their homes in safety and honour further diminished when the nation's Prime Minister handed over newly built flats to the refugees. He didn't say a single word to assure that they would be sent back home soon. A leader of the nation chooses the day to hand over flats to those who have been rendered refugees in their own motherland, in an independent nation, celebrating republic days and independence days. Whose republic and whose independence? Did a media so lethargic to Hindu pains notice the irony?

That's the difference between the speech of a king, which made the best director and actor of our times recreate the saga once more after seven decades and the speech of another king that made us feel further low and hopeless.

Hasan Ali case: Swiss seek ‘complete’ request

NEW DELHI: Switzerland on Tuesday said it was waiting for a “complete” request from India seeking help in probe against Hasan Ali, even as the domestic enforcement agencies tightened their noose on the stud farm owner accused of having billions of dollars of black money in Swiss banks.

The Indian government had first sought freezing of Ali’s bank accounts in Switzerland way back in 2007.

It had made several requests since then to the European country for help in probe against the Pune-based businessman, accused of having massive illicit wealth in foreign banks.

However, Swiss authorities have rejected all requests, saying they did not conform to necessary grounds for mutual assistance in this particular case and have asked India to submit a fresh request with certain facts and details.

Replying to a query on whether the Indian authorities have approached Switzerland with a fresh request for assistance in Hasan Ali case, a spokesperson for the Swiss law ministry told PTI that there was no such development so far.

Ali was arrested last night by the Enforcement Directorate, after the agency carried out searches at his Pune home and that of his associates’ premises in several cities.

A day later, the Supreme Court on Tuesday asked probe agencies to consider invoking terror and other stringent penal charges against 53-year old Ali for his alleged links with arms dealers and people linked to terror activities.

The ED also submitted to the court, in a sealed cover, its status report on the probe into the case related to black money in which they also mentioned Khan’s arrest last night.

The government also told the court that it would also furnish a status report on income-tax department’s probe.

India had last contacted the Switzerland government in August 2010 seeking legal assistance from the law ministry of the European nation in criminal proceedings for tax offences against Ali, the Swiss government official said.

In reply to this request, the Swiss ministry, the Federal Department of Justice of Switzerland, had said that India needed to submit a “complete” request by corroborating about issues like suspected tax frauds to get the assistance.

However, the request has not been completed so far, the spokesperson for Swiss law ministry said and added that “Indian authorities may complete their request at any time.”

India had first sought legal assistance from the Swiss authorities in January 2007 in this case, but Switzerland can provide help only after India makes a request “complete” with facts corresponding to a fraudulent conduct of the accused, the official said.

Besides, the Swiss government’s internal probe in the case of Hasan Ali, who is alleged to have stashed billions of dollars of illicit wealth in Swiss and other foreign banks, has found no reality in the presumed transfer of USD 6 billion to his accounts in Swiss bank UBS, the official added.

In reply to queries on this matter, the FoJ spokesperson provided an entire chronology of the case since 2007.

“In January 2007, the Indian authorities submitted in the context of criminal proceedings against Hasan Ali Khan (namely for money laundering) a request for legal assistance to the FoJ. They asked the Swiss authorities to freeze his bank accounts and to hand over the relevant banking documents.”

In the same month, FoJ informed the Indian authorities that “concerning the presumed transfer of USD 6 billions domestic inquiries have revealed that the supposed transfer to UBS accounts has no reality.”

On India’s request for help in the matter, the Swiss authorities replied that they needed specific details to “examine and possibly to accept and execute the request,” the official said.

These specific details included a confirmation that the Indian investigation is a criminal one (no tax or related investigation), a better description of the predicate offences which are object of the Indian money-laundering investigation and to show the relation between the predicate offences and the accounts in Switzerland.

The FoJ spokesperson said that the Indian Embassy in March 2007 submitted some complements to the FoJ.

However, the FoJ informed the Embassy in April 2007 that the complements did not include the necessary specification.

“Without these information the Swiss authorities cannot examine whether the conditions to grant legal assistance are fulfilled or not. Indian authorities have not submitted the necessary specification so far,” he added.

The FoJ spokesperson said that the Indian authorities submitted a new request for legal assistance in August 2010 in the context of criminal proceedings for tax offences.

However, even this request was not considered as “complete” with all the necessary specifications by the Swiss authorities.

“In the same month (August 2010), the FoJ told the Indian authorities: Switzerland does not grant mutual assistance for tax evasion. However, mutual assistance may be granted in cases of tax fraud (fraudulent evasion of duty and taxes by using false, forged or untrue information, documents etc)” the official said.

The FoJ spokesperson added, “The Indian authorities may complete their request at any time, if fraudulent conduct is discovered in the Indian proceedings. The request hasn’t been completed so far.”



Corporate socialism’s 2G orgy

Corporate socialism’s 2G orgy: "

P. Sainath

T+ · T-

The Union budget writes off Rs.240 crore in corporate income tax every single day on average — the same amount leaves India each day in illicit fund flows to foreign banks.

In six years from 2005-06, the Government of India wrote off corporate income tax worth Rs.3,74,937 crore — more than twice the 2G fraud — in successive Union budgets. The figure has grown every single year for which data are available. Corporate income tax written off in 2005-06 was Rs.34,618 crore. In the current budget, it is Rs.88,263 crore — an increase of 155 per cent. That is, the nation presently writes off over Rs.240 crore a day on average in corporate income tax. Oddly, that is also the daily average of illicit fund flows from India to foreign banks, according to a report of the Washington-based think tank, Global Financial Integrity.

Even Kapil Sibal cannot defend the revenue losses as notional. For the simple reason that each budget sums up these numbers clearly in tables within a section called ‘Statement of Revenue Foregone.’ If we add to this corporate karza maafi, revenue foregone in customs and excise duty — also very largely benefiting the corporate world and better off sections of society — the amounts are stunning. What, for instance, are some of the major items on which revenue is foregone in customs duty? Try diamonds and gold. Not quite aam aadmi or aurat items. This accounts for the largest chunk of all customs revenue foregone in the current budget. That is, for Rs.48,798 crore. Or well over half of what it takes to run a universal PDS system each year. In three years preceding this one, the customs write-off on gold, diamonds and jewellery totalled Rs.95,675 crore.

Of course, this being India, every plunder of public money for private profit is a pro-poor measure. You can hear the argument already: the huge bonanza for the gold and diamond crowd was only to save the jobs of poor workers in the midst of a global economic crisis. Touching. Only it didn’t save a single job in Surat or elsewhere. Many Oriya workers in that industry returned home jobless to Ganjam from Surat as the sector tanked. A few other workers took their own lives in desperation. Also, the indulgence for industry predates the 2008 crisis. Industry in Maharashtra gained massively from the Centre’s Corporate Socialism. Yet, in three years before the 2008 crisis, workers in the State lost their jobs at an average of 1,800 a day.
