Modi's shankhanaad at Varanasi, calls for Ram Rajya

Narendra Modi today gave a clarion call for Ram Rajya from the civilisational heartland of India, telling denizens of Varanasi that this was the vision of their ancestors, which they had the qualities to make real. Enchanting a mammoth gathering in this historic city at the Vijay Shanknaad Rally, he spared neither person nor party as he launched the Bharatiya Janata Party’s countdown for the general election of 2014 with a pronounced emphasis on the rise of social underdogs as the yardstick to measure the progress of the nation.

Narendra Modi’s Vijay Shankhanaad echoes in Varanasi

Carefully calibrating his combativeness towards the Congress and the UPA, and the family that has presided over the destiny of the nation for 45 years, Narendra Modi said it is insulting that some people think Uttar Pradesh is important to form the Government (at the Centre). Should a State be used only to harvest MPs and form Governments, he asked, and replied, “My own thinking is much larger. I say that India needs UP for stability, because we cannot progress as a country if UP does not progress”.

Uttar Pradesh, he indirectly chastised the Congress, is not a playground for politics; the people here have the energy to galvanise the nation. Your ancestors, he told his rapturous audience, dreamt of Ram Rajya, it is your heritage (virasat); the difficulty is only because the State has not elected the right leaders or the right Government. The day this changes, he promised, the energy and drive of the people will take the nation to new high.

Modimania grips Varanasi

Striking a personal and emotional rapport with the people, Narendra Modi said he had come from the land of Somnath (Shiva) to take the blessings of Baba Vishwanath (Mahadev). Noting the excitement of the gathering, he said he was probably witnessing such atmospherics before elections for the first time; people are so keen, so aggressive, to throw out the regime in Delhi. In 2014, it is the people and not political parties that will fight the election.


Narendra Modi addressing Vijay Shankhnaad Rally in Varanasi, UP

 

 


Standing in the eternal city, he said one cannot talk of India without mentioning the Ganga, as India is incomplete without the Ganga. It may be just a river for some, but for us she is a Mother. The eternal significance of Varanasi, as the devout know, is that it is here that the Ganga bends back north towards its Himalayan source. Naturally, Narendra Modi lambasted the Congress for its inability to clean the river despite umpteen schemes, endless committees and wasted budgets, which have not even been able to stem the steady decline of the river. He challenged the Prime Minister to submit details of the thousands of crores spent on the pretext of the Ganga from the public exchequer from the reign of Rajiv Gandhi. Citizens were cheated in the name of the Ganga, so the nation should know who got the money; he asked if such people should be tasked with governing the nation.

Uttar Pradesh, he said to the delight of his listeners, is not responsible for the pollution of the Ganga. Until Delhi and Lucknow are purged (of the respective Governments) there can be no purity in the Ganga. Pro-Congress persons, he mused, sometimes ask him what he will do if he comes to power in Delhi. The answer, he said, is to come to Gujarat and see the Sabarmati; it was once a dirty stream, but today the pure waters of the Narmada flow in it, and if the Sabarmati can be cleaned and made pure again, so can the Ganga; this will purify not just the river but the whole of Hindustan. The BJP, he thundered, does not make empty promises, “we have come with intent, irada not vada. The country is fed up of promises, it now wants its wishes fulfilled”.

Continuing the policy of emphasizing the importance of agriculture and farmers in national life, the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate said that under the leadership of Lal Bahadur Shastri, the farmer was inspired and filled the granaries of the nation. The UP farmer alone had the ability to feed all of Europe, but today governance is so poor that the nation is limping and the farmer is starving. It breaks the heart of our hardworking farmer when he sees his rice rotting on railway platforms. The farmer does not just feed the people, he feeds the animal population as well. But the Government callously lets the grain rot and then sells it to alcohol producers at a pittance of 0.80/quintal. This, he charged, is the reason why the Government refused the advice of the Supreme Court to distribute the excess grain among the poor; is this why our farmer toils, he lamented.

The Congress and similar parties remember the poor only at election time, just as students remember god at the time of examination. They think that once they get votes they are through for another five years; they have no love or respect for the poor, and cannot understand the grim struggle of their lives. One family, he charged, which has been in power for 45 years, is responsible for the plight of the nation. ‘One family has ruined the nation’.

The very mentality is flawed. Striking a powerful rapport with the audience, he said, “we don’t have to go and look for poverty the way they do; our childhood was in poverty” (alluding to Rahul Gandhi’s televised visits to the huts of the poor). One leader, he pointed out, said, “chai bechne wala” (wants to be PM). Expressing astonishment at the attitude, he countered that if the nation wants, a farm labourer or a shoe shine boy can lead the nation. Taking a dig at the corruption bedeviling the nation, he said to thunderous applause, “my upbringing, my sanskars say that I can sell tea but not the nation”. Only those who mock the poor can say that poverty is a state of mind, he continued. Those whose children are crying of hunger know what poverty is. Young children, he said, alluding to his own childhood, work to feed their parents; the nation should throw out leaders who do not understand this. Addressing the older generation, he asked if parents who have struggled in life want their children and grandchildren to suffer and struggle in the same way.

Just before he came to Varanasi, he said, a Muslim wrote to him saying that he was a resident of Kashi and since he (Modi) was coming to the city, could he make a mention in his speech of the difficulty of sleeping in the weaver’s bastis because power looms ran the whole night? The Banarsi sari, Modi responded, drape our ladies and can make our economy, yet such a huge industry has been ruined due to lack of vision. In Surat, he said, the power looms were silenced by upgrading the whole sector to soundless machines. This could also be done in Varanasi so that the huge employment potential of the sector engages the youth and puts an end to outward migration for jobs. The Government of India, however, imports yarn from China and ignores Varanasi.

BJP president Rajnath Singh gave a combative speech to huge cheers from the audience, and lauded the history and civilisational luminosity of Varanasi as a land associated with the Buddha (nearby Sarnath); Tulsidas, Kabir, Raidas, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Ustad Bismillah Khan and Madan Mohan Malaviya. Varanasi MP Murli Manohar Joshi made a pointed attack on the state of our national security, particularly the danger from China, Pakistan, and more recently, the shameful insult to a woman diplomat abroad. The UPA, he charged, failed to protect women at home and now it has failed to protect our women overseas.

Devyani arrest: Tit-for-tat for MV Seaman★#MyJihad #FilthyISLAM Muslims #AAPCon Ramlila Maidan

Devyani arrest: Tit-for-tat for MV Seaman

The protracted stand-off over Devyani Khobragade has led many in India’s security establishment to consider that the real reason for the arrest and humiliation of the diplomat could be India’s adamant detention of the floating armoury, MV Seaman Guard Ohio, on October 11 this year, and the continued incarceration of the 35 crew members, including Captain Dudnik Valentyn. The diplomatic confrontation in the matter could well be intended to end in an IC-814 style exchange.

MV Seaman Guard Ohio, owned by US-based Arab billionaire Samir Farajallah’s firm AdvanFort, was detected moving in Indian waters under the Sierra Leone flag and detained at Tuticorin port in Tamil Nadu. Indian officers recovered 35 assault rifles and 5,724 rounds of ammunition from the vessel. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is trying to establish if these armaments were intended for the dormant LTTE extremists or Islamic terrorist groups in south India.

Devyani Khobragade row: More to it than meets the eye

Experts note that due to its strategic importance, the intelligence agencies of many countries have established a presence in south India. Farajallah, a UAE national who is close to the Pentagon, lives near the White House, which makes Indian authorities suspect that the US administration was directly linked to the episode. He had previously helped US companies to sell arms in strife-torn nations, such as Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan.

AdvanFort has branches in Dubai and London and provides maritime security and armed security personnel; the seized vessel is part of its counter-piracy fleet. Both AdvanFort and the crew have failed to explain the presence of arms in their cargo. The ship had valid documents to hold weapons but none to authorise it to sail in Indian waters. It docked at Kochi on September 9 because it ran out of fuel and to escape a cyclone, and illegally purchased some diesel with the help of local agents.

The crew and guards were officially arrested on October 18; they included US, UK, Estonia and Ukraine nationals. Cases have been registered under the Arms Act of 1956, Essential Commodities Act 1955 and Motor Spirit and High Speed Diesel (Regulation of Supply, Distribution and Prevention of Malpractices), Order 2005. The Central Industrial Security Force was directed to take custody of the vessel.

UN posting gives Devyani temporary immunity, says US

Although, there is no exact tit-for-tat sequence in the Devyani case, which broke out much earlier, and possibly contained elements of personal ambition of Sangeeta Richards to settle in the US, there can be no doubt that back channel diplomacy to release the entire staff abroad the vessel was going on since October itself. The US consulate in Chennai would also have been aware of how Indian investigations were proceeding and the likely legal developments in the case, particularly after the nation-wide furore over the Italian marines who skipped parole, but returned under pressure, and are now out on bail. The Richards family was evacuated on December 10; Khobragade was arrested on December 12.

On December 18, the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court dismissed the bail application of all 35 crew members as the Government argued that three persons were yet to be arrested in the case and the investigation was at a crucial stage. The crew claimed that the vessel was 19 nautical miles off the Indian coast, beyond India’s territorial jurisdiction. Washington became anxious when the American media whipped up sentiment over the arrests. William Watson, president of AdvanFort, said in an interview to FoxNews, “These guys are decorated military veterans. They’re brave, honest men who spend months away from their families to protect ships from pirates and this is how they’re being treated”. He said the arms and ammunition were to protect commercial ships from piracy.

American conspiracy behind Devyani Khobragade’s arrest!

Watson claimed that when the ship found itself low on fuel, it requested the Indian authorities permission to dock and buy fuel, which was refused. But following a cyclone scare, the crew docked in Kochi and went to an agent to buy enough fuel to reach another port in either Sri Lanka or Maldives. But when it entered Tamil Nadu waters, the coast guard forced it to come into port. At first, 33 members of the crew were arrested, and two days later, the chief engineer (who attempted suicide) and the captain, both Ukrainian nationals. With the crew still in jail and Christmas round the corner, the US State Department may be trying to force the Indian Government to withdraw the cases and release the men, as it did with the three dreaded terrorists demanded by the Taliban at Kandahar, in return for charges being dropped against Devyani Khobragade and her safe return back home.

Modi’s Mumbai Maha Garjana Rally, a call to vote for India★#MyJihad #FilthyISLAM Muslims #AAPCon Ramlila Maidan

Modi's Mumbai Garjana Rally, a call to vote for India

BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s  Maha Garjana Rally at MMRDA ground in Mumbai on Sunday was unique for two things. First, the meeting was massive – a sea of people who constantly cheered him till the end. The discipline, the arrangements were just perfect. The next is of course Modi’s speech. His ‘Vote for India’ was indeed emotional but definitely forceful. Here is a Prime Ministerial aspirant who, unlike other political leaders, did not request the people to vote for the BJP. Instead he said four words –  Dal Se Bada Desh. Country First. This is what makes Modi different from the rest.

“Vote for India to get freedom from politics of divide, freedom from poverty, improvement in education, employment for youths, safety of women, powerful and prosperous India and for a better India,” said Modi. In these simple words he virtually gave a Congress report card of misrule and mess. Earlier, he blasted the Congress for blatantly pandering to vote-bank politics. “Congress is involved in divide and rule for vote-bank politics. This has been their specialty. They learnt this from Britishers,” Modi said. The attack was timely given the Cabinet nod to sinister Communal Violence Bill.

Modi tears into Congress, asks people to vote for India in 2014

“The problems we face won’t be solved till we free India from vote-bank politics and get it on path of developmental politics,” he emphasised. Castigating Congress for bad governance, Modi urged the people for a Congress Mukt Bharat – an India without Congress. “Development can happen if intentions are clear. Good governance is the key. Root cause of all problems is bad governance,” he stressed. Making a direct dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s “corruption bleeding India” speech at FICCI on Saturday, Modi was at his sarcastic best. “I heard the speech of a big Congress leader on Saturday. He was speaking against corruption. See their audacity. No one else can dare do this. Despite being neck deep in corruption, they spoke against graft with pretentious innocence”, he pointed out.

He also targetted the chatterati by mentioning the presence of tea vendors in VIP lounge of the venue. “The common man is a VIP for us. Times changing”, he said. Criticising the tendency of the Congress-ruled States to censor cable networks to block his public speech; Modi said he had already made it to the hearts of the people. “You can shut televisions but not hearts of the people,” he said. Modi in Mumbai, his first mega rally in western metropolis, would be remembered for the “vote for the country”. And for impending  eclipse of the Congress.

Does AAP-Congress tango have a future?★#MyJihad #FilthyISLAM Muslims #AAPCon Ramlila Maidan

The year-end is almost upon us and a new AAP Government is finally imminent in Delhi. While this affects just the people in the tiny city-State in terms of its current anticipated writ, the AAP style politics is acting as a catalyst to the somnolence of all the other parties. And they have every intention to spread their wings during the forthcoming general election next year.

Narendra Modi as the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate and Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Vasundra Raje and Raman Singh may indeed be dynamic but the BJP as a whole has not been so. It has often been criticised for being a token Opposition Party, very comfortable with the loaves and fishes of privilege.

The Delhi BJP has declined to form the Government having fallen 4 seats short of a majority. It fell short of the numbers probably because of endemic and unseemly infighting among several ambitious leaders. The AAP got the benefit, both from the anger against the Congress and the disarray in the BJP, and was able to secure larger numbers of seats than was expected.

Congress has been a cesspit of blatant corruption, nepotism, maladministration and has presided over sharp price rises. It also continues with its age old and cynical vote-bank politics going back for as long as memory serves. But even the minorities are fed up of the scaremongering and non- delivery.

Coming to the new AAP Government likely to be sworn-in on Christmas Day and the BJP patriarch Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s birthday, there is room for excitement. We, who live in Delhi, except for the privatised discoms themselves, are eagerly awaiting the 50% reduction in electricity tariff in place of the next hike, Mrs Sheila Dikshit was threatening.

And this hike was due in view of the Rs 16,000 crore shortfalls the discoms have been claiming between their power purchase/ distribution costs and the high tariff the groaning consumer is already paying against astronomical bills. Something is definitely wrong but Mrs Dikshit did not ever think so. And this is not counting the diesel generating costs, especially in summer and cold spells in winter. Privatisation, in this instance, has been far from cost efficient!

The discoms, oddly enough, have suddenly stopped clamouring for a hike in rates, and are rumoured to be quite worried about their books of accounts being examined for alleged ‘fudging’. Also their sympathetic champion, former Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit is no longer in the power seat. The AAP made this item an important election issue, as did the BJP, which promised a 30% reduction. So the Delhi Vidhan Sabha as a whole has promises to fulfil in this regard.

Kejriwal, the probable Chief Minister designate, has also promised the citizens of Delhi some respite from our soaring water bills and indeed 700 litres of water per household free every day. That our water bills are bundled with rapacious sewer maintenance charges surreptitiously introduced, that do not seem to be spent on sewer maintenance at all, is another Congress administered mystery. Certainly, every sewer pipe seems to be choked. No one has ever seen them being cleaned. And the merest downpour results in flooded roads and dirty water ingress into ground floor homes. Bundled together, water and sewer charges have risen some1100 per cent by one estimate!

Most Delhi consumers have been paying thousands of rupees in both water and electricity bills every month lately, and both items have now become a significant chunk of the household budget.

The big question is what will the AAP really do about these campaign promises once it forms the Government in Delhi? If it succeeds in bringing down these two tariffs, perhaps by the inevitable introduction of fresh subsidies, it will certainly earn the gratitude of Delhi’s population. This, in turn will go some way to give them a boost in their ambition to emerge on the national scene as well. The people of Delhi have high hopes and if the AAP delivers them, they won’t be the only ones. Conversely, they will stand exposed as loquacious, false promising politicians, no different from the rest!

None among the beneficiary aam admi are going to worry about how the price cuts will be squared. But some khaas admi are concerned about the viability of pulling off such reductions in tariff, if the discoms and Delhi Jal Board books of accounts stand up to scrutiny.

But the other obsession of the AAP is likely to take priority. And this is the Janlokpal Bill. It is unclear what this will achieve in actuality when most laws, rules and regulations are flouted routinely, particularly by the powerful political classes, but let us give it the benefit of doubt. AAP also plans to regularise every unauthorised colony in Delhi left unattended in this regard by the Congress.

It is also unclear how long the AAP’s alliance with the venal Congress will last. Kejriwal expects it to sustain for six months, implying this is enough for the AAP to extract political mileage for the general election and deliver on some of its promises. “AAP may be in for a surprise”.

Majority of Muslims Believe Sharia Should Trump Laws of Host Countries★#MyJihad #FilthyISLAM Muslims #AAPCon Ramlila Maidan

Secularphobia alert. via Study: Clear Majority of European Muslims Pro-Sharia Fundamentalists.

The majority of Muslims in Europe believe Islamic Sharia law should take precedence over the secular constitutions and laws of their European host countries, according to a new study, which warns that Islamic fundamentalism is widespread and rising sharply in Western Europe.

The “Six Country Immigrant Integration Comparative Survey“—a five-year study of Moroccan and Turkish immigrants in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Holland and Sweden—was published on December 11 by the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, one of the largest social science research institutes in Europe.

According to the study (German and English), which was funded by the German government, two thirds (65%) of the Muslims interviewed say Islamic Sharia law is more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.

Three quarters (75%) of the respondents hold the opinion that there is only one legitimate interpretation of the Koran, which should apply to all Muslims, and nearly 60% of Muslims believe their community should return to “Islamic roots.”

The survey shows that 44% of the Moroccans and Turks interviewed agree with all three of the above statements, which makes them “consistent fundamentalists,” and fundamentalist attitudes are just as widespread among younger Muslims as they are among older Muslims.

According to the study, Islamic fundamentalism is most pronounced in Austria, where 73% of Muslims interviewed say Sharia law is more important than the secular laws of the state; 79% say there is only one correct interpretation of the Koran that should apply to all, and 65% believe Muslims should return to their Islamic roots. In Austria, 55% of the Muslims surveyed say they agree with all three of the above statements.

The author of the study, the Dutch sociologist Ruud Koopmans, says that “comparisons with other German studies reveal remarkably similar patterns. For instance, in the 2007 Muslime in Deutschland study, 47% of German Muslims agreed with the statement that following the rules of one’s religion is more important than democracy, almost identical to the 47% in our survey that finds the rules of the Koran more important than the laws of Germany.”

Head of a human-rights org also a financier for al Qaeda ★#MyJihad #FilthyISLAM Muslims #AAPCon Ramlila Maidan

The U.S. government this week said the head of a human-rights organization working on behalf of Islamist political prisoners was also a financier for al Qaeda.

Most of the world knows Abdul Rahman Omeir al-Naimi as a Qatari history professor and human-rights activist. The Swiss-based organization he founded, known as al-Karama from the Arab word for dignity, has worked closely with the United Nations and American human rights groups, most notably Human Rights Watch.

According to the U.S. government, however, al-Naimi is also a major financier of al Qaeda. On Wednesday, the Treasury Department issued a designation of al-Naimi that said he oversaw the transfer of hundreds of thousands of dollars to al Qaeda and its affiliates in Iraq, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen over the last 11 years. In 2013, the designation says, al-Naimi ordered the transfer of nearly $600,000 to al Qaeda via the group’s representative in Syria. In the same notice, the Treasury Department also designated Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani, al-Karama’s representative in Yemen, as a financier and member of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the group’s Yemen affiliate. On Twitter, al-Naimi acknowledged that he and al-Humayqani, whom he calls by his first name, were designated for supporting terrorism. Al-Naimi has resigned as president of al-Karama’s board, but told the group’s senior leadership that he intends to challenge the Treasury Department’s designation.

If the Treasury Department’s allegations are correct, the story of al-Naimi, who until Thursday was the president of al-Karama’s board, illustrates how sometimes human-rights advocacy can also be used as political cover for jihadist networks.

Lebanese-Born Cleric Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkar: Saying “Merry Christmas” Is Worse than Fornication, Alcohol, or Killing Someone

Following are excerpts from a statement in English by Lebanese-born cleric Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari, which was posted on the Internet on November 6, 2011.

Abu Musaab Wajdi Akkari: You cannot say: “Merry Christmas.” Not even if an alien came and said it to you – you cannot even say it to him, and say: “He’s just an alien. I’m never going to see him again. He’s not going to tell anyone.”

No “Merry Christmas” – not from a Muslim and not from a non-Muslim. It’s not part of our religion – period! It is the concept that God was born on the 25th of December. That’s as polytheistic and heretic as you can get.

When you say: “Merry Christmas,” you are saying: “Congratulations on your false religion,” “Congratulations on your false understanding of life.” You are congratulating them on the most evil of polytheism and heresy.

As Ibn Qayyim said, this is worse than fornication, drinking alcohol, and killing someone, because you are approving of the biggest crime every committed by the children of Adam – polytheism.
