Bangladeshi infiltration and its far reaching consequences

Bangladeshi infiltration and its far reaching consequences

Category: JIHAD Published: SUNDAY, 27 JULY 2014 09:22

In 1998, four countries of the world – Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Afghanistan, made an agreement to fuel international jihad. They vowed to initiate Jihad against America, Europe and India. Since then the attacks on India have increased manifold, aided by Bangladesh and Pakistan. Bangladesh is a growing terrorist hub that not only aids Jihad but also serves as a safe haven forAfghanistani and Pakistani terrorists. The growing radicalization of the native population of Bangladesh is responsible for this. ISLAMIC fundamentalists are now part of Bangladesh government and 58% Bangladeshis think “HUMAN BOMBS” are a good thing for ISLAM.  5,000 Bangladeshi immigrants have created a sleeper cell for JIHAD, and have infiltrated lower areas of ASSAM, they want to break away the north east states and carve out a major portion of India into an Islamic corridor named MUGLISTAN. The code name for this operation given by ISI is operation Pin code.

The city of Siliguri in the state of West Bengal is the central node that connects Bhutan, Nepal, Sikkim, Darjeeling hills, northeast India and the rest of India.  This Siliguri corridor is also called the ‘Chicken Neck’ of India – it runs for approx. 200 kms lengthwise while it width varies from 20-60 kilometers.

A  Chinese invasion of mere 100 kms South of Bhutan will be sufficient to block this corridor and break the North-Eastern part of India away from its mainland.
Not only insurgency but a flourishing narcotics and weapons traffic also takes place in this region.

The day this small corridor is blockaded, no Hindu will be allowed to escape from North -East back to Indian mainland, neither any help will reach them. We’ve seen a similar exodus of Hindus from Bhutan in past two decades and barely anyone in India knows about it

‘Mughlistan research institute’ an ISI brainchild made a plan of operation pin code whose ultimate aim is ethnic partition of India. This will be achieved by populating the belt from Bangladesh to Pakistan with Bangladeshi Muslims. The area under this planned belt occupies states of Punjab, Haryana, UP, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal; i.e., the entire gangatic plain and our northern states.

Under this scheme at least six thousand Bangladeshis infiltrate into India every day. Not due to financial reasons but for this conspiracy alone. They are aided by Indian politicians for obvious reasons .

 

Bangladeshi census report itself indicates that over one crore Bangladeshis are now missing from Bangladesh. In a very scary scenario these people have now taken over all means of earning of Indian people in north east states and send back  15,000 crore rupees to Bangladesh (every year). They form upto 70 % of population of various areas of east now and are a major deciding factor in vote bank as they vote en-mass for one particular party. Moreover, they are given Indian ration cards and have Indian voter ids. One need not be reminded that these are the same people who give shelter to islamic fundamentalists and abet cross border crime traffic. As a side effect, they’re also affecting health services of native Indians in the region due to their heavy influx. They are snatching away lively hood from Indians.

In short these people pose different kinds of threats to India
1. They take away livelihood of Indians
2. They poach upon farm animals of Indian natives by force or deceit. Statistics reveal that these Bangladeshis illegally transport 20,000 cows to Bangladesh for slaughter every year.
3. They pose a very big security threat as they abet crimes, bomb blasts and narcotics trade. In fact they harbour sleeper cells of 5000 terrorists to be used at opportune moment against India.
4. They cost our government heavily in terms of an added population of 5 crore people demanding heavily on health services etc., law and order, habilitation etc.
5. They send back 15,000 crore rupees back to Bangladesh every year which is dent on Indian economy being illegal in its entirety.
6. They commit crimes in India and go absconding back to Bangladesh
7. They vote en block so that their political interests are served at their will.

 

Before Hindus were pushed out of Kashmir a big network of Jihadi Madrasas were made throughout Kashmir to radicalize the generations. Same is happening now all over India where these Bangladeshis are being aided by Pakistan and its secret agencies. These madrassa are centres where Jihadis and maoists meet to exchange maps and arms. Rape of Hindu women is a common occurrence in Bangladesh which is a direct result of such radicalisation in madrassas. Rape is just one of the tools to wipe out minorities in Bangladesh: Hindu population fell from 29% at partition (1947) to below 10% today because Muslims of Bangladesh rape, riot and takeover Hindu properties. And even if one forgets Bangladesh for a while, one can observe inside India itself, how it becomes increasingly difficult for Hindus –especially their women, to survive in areas where Muslims are in a majority.

When Bangladeshis come to India they first steal cattle, then assault Hindus and their women, then they attack their fields and occupy it illegally. Hindus have to leave that field in frustration as there is no help forthcoming from the Muslim appeasing administration.  As a result of this, Hindus are selling their property in bordering areas of Assam and are migrating into interiors. (The same is happening in various Muslim majority areas inside India where constant threats and same tactics used by Muslims forces the Hindus to sell their properties at dirt cheap rates and flee from the area.)

Since Ancient times asylum seekers have been coming to seek shelter in India – be it Jews, Christians, Africans, Parsis, Tibetans or even Muslims. However, time has come to differentiate between asylum seekers and miscreant infiltrators. Bangladesh has pushed a staggering 25- 30% of its population into India to harm this country. When a thousand Pakistanis occupied our peaks in Kargil there was a big war. When infiltrators come from Pakistan they are shot down. Yet we continue to tolerate 5 crore Bangladeshis which a poor and terror ridden country like ours cannot afford. An outside attack on our country can be stopped by the Army but you will have no place to run when this attack comes from within India. We’ve seen this happening with ethnic Assamese when they had no place to run in 2013.
If we still choose to tolerate these infiltrators on our land then we are indeed choosing instability and terror for ourselves, and more importantly the generations to come.

I can’t emphasis enoug on responsibility.Nobody can cross the border until and unless they know how to cross the border with ease.
There is always underlying dishonesty associated with these things.For example in Kashmir BSF had taken a lot of money in 1980’s to let the arms and terrorists into kashmir otherwise a single “pin”wont get into country if honest

How Ayn Rand Seduced Generations of Young Men

How Ayn Rand Seduced Generations of Young Men and Helped Make the U.S. Into a Selfish, Greedy Nation

Thanks in part to Rand, the United States is one of the most uncaring nations in the industrialized world.
 
 
December 15, 2011  |  
 
 
 
 
 

Ayn Rand’s “philosophy” is nearly perfect in its immorality, which makes the size of her audience all the more ominous and symptomatic as we enter a curious new phase in our society….To justify and extol human greed and egotism is to my mind not only immoral, but evil.— Gore Vidal, 1961

Only rarely in U.S. history do writers transform us to become a more caring or less caring nation. In the 1850s, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was a strong force in making the United States a more humane nation, one that would abolish slavery of African Americans. A century later, Ayn Rand (1905-1982) helped make the United States into one of the most uncaring nations in the industrialized world, a neo-Dickensian society where healthcare is only for those who can afford it, and where young people are coerced into huge student-loan debt that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.

Rand’s impact has been widespread and deep. At the iceberg’s visible tip is the influence she’s had over major political figures who have shaped American society. In the 1950s, Ayn Rand read aloud drafts of what was later to become Atlas Shrugged to her “Collective,” Rand’s ironic nickname for her inner circle of young individualists, which included Alan Greenspan, who would serve as chairman of the Federal Reserve Board from 1987 to 2006.

In 1966, Ronald Reagan wrote in a personal letter, “Am an admirer of Ayn Rand.” Today, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) credits Rand for inspiring him to go into politics, and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) calls Atlas Shrugged his “foundation book.” Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) says Ayn Rand had a major influence on him, and his son Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is an even bigger fan. A short list of other Rand fans includes Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; Christopher Cox, chairman of the Security and Exchange Commission in George W. Bush’s second administration; and former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford.

But Rand’s impact on U.S. society and culture goes even deeper.

The Seduction of Nathan Blumenthal

Ayn Rand’s books such as The Virtue of Selfishness and her philosophy that celebrates self-interest and disdains altruism may well be, as Vidal assessed, “nearly perfect in its immorality.” But is Vidal right about evil? Charles Manson, who himself did not kill anyone, is the personification of evil for many of us because of his psychological success at exploiting the vulnerabilities of young people and seducing them to murder. What should we call Ayn Rand’s psychological ability to exploit the vulnerabilities of millions of young people so as to influence them not to care about anyone besides themselves?

While Greenspan (tagged “A.G.” by Rand) was the most famous name that would emerge from Rand’s Collective, the second most well-known name to emerge from the Collective was Nathaniel Branden, psychotherapist, author and “self-esteem” advocate. Before he was Nathaniel Branden, he was Nathan Blumenthal, a 14-year-old who read Rand’s The Fountainhead again and again. He later would say, “I felt hypnotized.” He describes how Rand gave him a sense that he could be powerful, that he could be a hero. He wrote one letter to his idol Rand, then a second. To his amazement, she telephoned him, and at age 20, Nathan received an invitation to Ayn Rand’s home. Shortly after, Nathan Blumenthal announced to the world that he was incorporating Rand in his new name: Nathaniel Branden. And in 1955, with Rand approaching her 50th birthday and Branden his 25th, and both in dissatisfying marriages, Ayn bedded Nathaniel.

What followed sounds straight out of Hollywood, but Rand was straight out of Hollywood, having worked for Cecil B. DeMille. Rand convened a meeting with Nathaniel, his wife Barbara (also a Collective member), and Rand’s own husband Frank. To Branden’s astonishment, Rand convinced both spouses that a time-structured affair—she and Branden were to have one afternoon and one evening a week together—was “reasonable.” Within the Collective, Rand is purported to have never lost an argument. On his trysts at Rand’s New York City apartment, Branden would sometimes shake hands with Frank before he exited. Later, all discovered that Rand’s sweet but passive husband would leave for a bar, where he began his self-destructive affair with alcohol.

By 1964, the 34-year-old Nathaniel Branden had grown tired of the now 59-year-old Ayn Rand. Still sexually dissatisfied in his marriage to Barbara and afraid to end his affair with Rand, Branden began sleeping with a married 24-year-old model, Patrecia Scott. Rand, now “the woman scorned,” called Branden to appear before the Collective, whose nickname had by now lost its irony for both Barbara and Branden. Rand’s justice was swift. She humiliated Branden and then put a curse on him: “If you have one ounce of morality left in you, an ounce of psychological health—you’ll be impotent for the next twenty years! And if you achieve potency sooner, you’ll know it’s a sign of still worse moral degradation!”

Rand completed the evening with two welt-producing slaps across Branden’s face. Finally, in a move that Stalin and Hitler would have admired, Rand also expelled poor Barbara from the Collective, declaring her treasonous because Barbara, preoccupied by her own extramarital affair, had neglected to fill Rand in soon enough on Branden’s extra-extra-marital betrayal. (If anyone doubts Alan Greenspan’s political savvy, keep in mind that he somehow stayed in Rand’s good graces even though he, fixed up by Branden with Patrecia’s twin sister, had double-dated with the outlaws.)

After being banished by Rand, Nathaniel Branden was worried that he might be assassinated by other members of the Collective, so he moved from New York to Los Angeles, where Rand fans were less fanatical. Branden established a lucrative psychotherapy practice and authored approximately 20 books, 10 of them with either “Self” or “Self-Esteem” in the title. Rand and Branden never reconciled, but he remains an admirer of her philosophy of self-interest.

Ayn Rand’s personal life was consistent with her philosophy of not giving a shit about anybody but herself. Rand was an ardent two-pack-a-day smoker, and when questioned about the dangers of smoking, she loved to light up with a defiant flourish and then scold her young questioners on the “unscientific and irrational nature of the statistical evidence.” After an x-ray showed that she had lung cancer, Rand quit smoking and had surgery for her cancer. Collective members explained to her that many people still smoked because they respected her and her assessment of the evidence; and that since she no longer smoked, she ought to tell them. They told her that she needn’t mention her lung cancer, that she could simply say she had reconsidered the evidence. Rand refused.

How Rand’s Philosophy Seduced Young Minds

When I was a kid, my reading included comic books and Rand’s The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. There wasn’t much difference between the comic books and Rand’s novels in terms of the simplicity of the heroes. What was different was that unlike Superman or Batman, Rand made selfishness heroic, and she made caring about others weakness.

Rand said, “Capitalism and altruism are incompatible….The choice is clear-cut: either a new morality of rational self-interest, with its consequences of freedom, justice, progress and man’s happiness on earth—or the primordial morality of altruism, with its consequences of slavery, brute force, stagnant terror and sacrificial furnaces.” For many young people, hearing that it is “moral” to care only about oneself can be intoxicating, and some get addicted to this idea for life.

I have known several people, professionally and socially, whose lives have been changed by those close to them who became infatuated with Ayn Rand. A common theme is something like this: “My ex-husband wasn’t a bad guy until he started reading Ayn Rand. Then he became a completely selfish jerk who destroyed our family, and our children no longer even talk to him.”

To wow her young admirers, Rand would often tell a story of how a smart-aleck book salesman had once challenged her to explain her philosophy while standing on one leg. She replied: “Metaphysics—objective reality. Epistemology—reason. Ethics—self-interest. Politics—capitalism.” How did that philosophy capture young minds?

Metaphysics—objective reality. Rand offered a narcotic for confused young people: complete certainty and a relief from their anxiety. Rand believed that an “objective reality” existed, and she knew exactly what that objective reality was. It included skyscrapers, industries, railroads, and ideas—at least her ideas. Rand’s objective reality did not include anxiety or sadness. Nor did it include much humor, at least the kind where one pokes fun at oneself. Rand assured her Collective that objective reality did not include Beethoven’s, Rembrandt’s, and Shakespeare’s realities—they were too gloomy and too tragic, basically buzzkillers. Rand preferred Mickey Spillane and, towards the end of her life, “Charlie’s Angels.”

Epistemology—reason. Rand’s kind of reason was a “cool-tool” to control the universe. Rand demonized Plato, and her youthful Collective members were taught to despise him. If Rand really believed that the Socratic Method described by Plato of discovering accurate definitions and clear thinking did not qualify as “reason,” why then did she regularly attempt it with her Collective? Also oddly, while Rand mocked dark moods and despair, her “reasoning” directed that Collective members should admire Dostoyevsky, whose novels are filled with dark moods and despair. A demagogue, in addition to hypnotic glibness, must also be intellectually inconsistent, sometimes boldly so. This eliminates challenges to authority by weeding out clear-thinking young people from the flock.

Ethics—self-interest. For Rand, all altruists were manipulators. What could be more seductive to kids who discerned the motives of martyr parents, Christian missionaries and U.S. foreign aiders? Her champions, Nathaniel Branden still among them, feel that Rand’s view of “self-interest” has been horribly misrepresented. For them, self-interest is her hero architect Howard Roark turning down a commission because he couldn’t do it exactly his way. Some of Rand’s novel heroes did have integrity, however, for Rand there is no struggle to discover the distinction between true integrity and childish vanity. Rand’s integrity was her vanity, and it consisted of getting as much money and control as possible, copulating with whomever she wanted regardless of who would get hurt, and her always being right. To equate one’s selfishness, vanity, and egotism with one’s integrity liberates young people from the struggle to distinguish integrity from selfishness, vanity, and egotism.

Politics—capitalism. While Rand often disparaged Soviet totalitarian collectivism, she had little to say about corporate totalitarian collectivism, as she conveniently neglected the reality that giant U.S. corporations, like the Soviet Union, do not exactly celebrate individualism, freedom, or courage. Rand was clever and hypocritical enough to know that you don’t get rich in the United States talking about compliance and conformity within corporate America. Rather, Rand gave lectures titled: “America’s Persecuted Minority: Big Business.” So, young careerist corporatists could embrace Rand’s self-styled “radical capitalism” and feel radical — radical without risk.

Rand’s Legacy

In recent years, we have entered a phase where it is apparently okay for major political figures to publicly embrace Rand despite her contempt for Christianity. In contrast, during Ayn Rand’s life, her philosophy that celebrated self-interest was a private pleasure for the 1 percent but she was a public embarrassment for them. They used her books to congratulate themselves on the morality of their selfishness, but they publicly steered clear of Rand because of her views on religion and God. Rand, for example, had stated on national television, “I am against God. I don’t approve of religion. It is a sign of a psychological weakness. I regard it as an evil.”

Actually, again inconsistent, Rand did have a God. It was herself. She said:

I am done with the monster of “we,” the word of serfdom, of plunder, of misery, falsehood and shame. And now I see the face of god, and I raise this god over the earth, this god whom men have sought since men came into being, this god who will grant them joy and peace and pride. This god, this one word: “I.”

While Harriet Beecher Stowe shamed Americans about the United States’ dehumanization of African Americans and slavery, Ayn Rand removed Americans’ guilt for being selfish and uncaring about anyone except themselves. Not only did Rand make it “moral” for the wealthy not to pay their fair share of taxes, she “liberated” millions of other Americans from caring about the suffering of others, even the suffering of their own children.

The good news is that I’ve seen ex-Rand fans grasp the damage that Rand’s philosophy has done to their lives and to then exorcize it from their psyche. Can the United States as a nation do the same thing?

from a christian in kerala

Matthew • an hour ago

It is not an isolated incident is it.. World over, Muslims are concerned that everyone else is conspiring against them. In the latest news: A Kerala school run by christians was having a party for teachers, and served pork. As there were leftovers, they invited students have a meal. The students were duly cautioned about pork, and advised to have fish curry and pickle if they did not like it. One muslim student went home and told his parents, who were “outraged” that pork was served during the holy month. The result: Protests, the rest of violence etc. Now, the Headmaster and teacher are going to be suspended- even though they had given clear warning.

Now,as an atheist Indian, I have no problems with how people lead their lives. But I expect no interference in my life too. Kerala was a supposedly liberal society, where beef is commonly served in many restaurants. But now, I am being told that pork cannot be served during the holy months. All this is amidst a creeping numerical lowering of the Hindus in the state. Muslim families with 10 kids are a common sight. The Liberalism of my home state is being torn apart. Fear of mob violence is subverting the concept of right and wrong. All this is a warning for the rest of India. Remember this: A Muslim majority India will not be secular, nor will it be a true democracy. Kerala Muslims are highly educated, yet such bigotry exists. Do not make the mistake of thinking that “liberal Islam” exists.

IN MEMORY OF OUR REAL ICONS

Symbols such as a National War Memorial and the National Military Memorial would immensely contribute towards that direction. As the famous quote aptly puts it, “Poor is the nation that has no heroes….Shameful is the one that, having them…forgets”

With the allocation of Rs100 crore for the proposed National War Memorial in the Union Budget 2014, the BJP-led NDA Government has fulfilled a long-pending demand of the Armed Forces to honour the soldiers who laid down their lives in defence of the nation since 1947.

New Delhi’s India Gate, where successive Prime Ministers have been paying tributes to the nation’s martyrs on Republic Day every year, was built by the alien rulers to honour the British and Indian officers and men who were killed fighting for the Union Jack during World War I and the Afghan campaign.

However, it remains a matter of shame, not just for the Armed Forces but also the nation as a whole, that even 66 years after independence, the country does not have a National War Memorial to remember the martyrs of the 1947-1948 Jammu & Kashmir operations, the 1962, 1965 and 1971 wars and the 1999 Kargil conflict. In fact, the National War Memorial was first proposed way back in the 1960s.

Earlier this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had attacked the then Congress-led UPA Government for dragging its feet on the National War Memorial, saying, “There is no country in the world where there is not a war memorial. India has fought several wars, thousands of our soldiers have been martyred. Should we not remember them? Should not there be a war memorial?”

The announcement during the Budget presentation by Union Finance and Defence Minister Arun Jaitley, about the proposed memorial in Princess Park near India Gate supplemented by a war museum, is in effect a materialisation of the Prime Minister’s vision. Interestingly, apart from  Armed Forces personnel, one of the key activists who campaigned extensively for the National War Memorial not only in Delhi but also in different State capitals has been entrepreneur and Rajya Sabha Member Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

Much like the industrialist and former Congress MP Naveen Jindal, who vociferously advocated the cause of the Tricolour, Mr Chandrasekhar, the two-time independent MP from Bangalore, has relentlessly pursued the demand for a memorial ever since he set foot in Parliament in 2006 through numerous letters and parliamentary questions to the Defence Minister. He has also highlighted the matter outside Parliament and even approached Chief Ministers to build memorials in their respective States.

In 2009, Mr Chandrasekhar convinced the Karnataka State Government to build the National Military Memorial in Bangalore, India’s very first war memorial post-independence.  As the chairman of the National Military Memorial Committee, he has ensured that when inaugurated the memorial in Bangalore will be the country’s first monument to honour soldiers who laid down their lives in major conflicts that took place post independence

Spread over 7.5 acres, the first memorial for our bravehearts in the heart of Bangalore boasts several unique features. The memorial park showcases the Veeragallu — Kannada for stone — recollecting the contribution of the bold and the brave. This is an imposing and traditional obelisk symbolising the strength, courage as well as conviction of martyred soldiers. The height of the monolithic granite structure is 75 feet and it weighs about 700 tonnes.

The National Military Memorial park will also have the tallest flag mast in India at 65 metres (around 213 feet). The flag mast will adorn the country’s largest national flag measuring 48×78 feet. The names of more than 22,000 soldiers who laid down their lives fighting for the nation will be inscribed in plaques on the memorial’s walls.

In addition to this, models of weapon systems will be displayed at the 10,000 sq ft underground motivation hall in the park. Busts of war heroes such as Field Marshal SHFJ Manekshaw, Field Marshal KM Cariappa and Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan will be displayed inside the hall. Apart from being a symbol of thanksgiving, both for the citizens and the kin of the martyrs, such a memorial will also serve as beacons of inspiration for the country’s younger generation.

As Mr Chandrasekhar’s told the youth at the at the flag hoisting ceremony at the Bangalore memorial, the memorial should become an inspiration — not just about the brave people for whom this is being built, but in a larger way, the ideals and values that the Armed Forces represent — values of national service, commitment to the idea of a strong, progressive and united India, values of ‘nation first’, or, as the Armed Forces say, ‘Seva Parmo Dharma’.

“This rekindling of our national spirit is even more important today, as our nation struggles with divisions on lines of caste, religious and region. I strongly believe that our Armed Forces are the last of the few professional, secular institutions that are still driven by a sense of nationalism and duty and live and die by the simple idea of Nation First — values that unfortunately have disappeared, or are disappearing, from almost all other areas of public service”, said Mr Chandrasekhar.

Most of today’s youth, except those associated with some political or ideological outfits, do not relate to the idols the earlier generations admired and adored. Cricketers, film stars, pop singers and even ramp models have replaced the freedom-fighters and heroes of yore. These new age celebrities are the idols, icons and heroes of Generation X, but can they be role models?

They may inspire an aspiring model, actor or cricketer, but can they exhort one to walk that extra mile, work that extra hour, extend that helping hand and become the voice of the voiceless, to think beyond oneself and the family, for society and the country at large?

We are a young nation, with the largest youth population in the world. With religious fanatics, Maoists and drug-peddlers trying to wean away the youth in large numbers towards their nefarious activities, it becomes important, nay essential, that our youth have as role models contemporary figures whom they can emulate or at least draw inspiration from, so as to play a constructive role, both in their own and the nation’s lives.

While symbols such as a National War Memorial and the National Military Memorial will immensely contribute in inculcating a sense of purpose and patriotism among our youth and children, it is also important that we create a modern mythology and folklore around our post-independence military heroes, in our educational curricula. If the stories of these war heroes enter our collective consciousness as a people, it is bound to inspire, uplift and revive the time honoured values of patriotism — of duty, honour and sacrifice — values that any nation needs for its survival and growth.

Nationalism is not about jingoism. It is about rising above the narrow confines of caste, creed, language, region, religion, and even ideology. Communism dreams of a borderless state, yet no other country is as passionate about its unique identity and territory as the Chinese, to the extent that they are today seen as being irredentist, whether it is on Arunachal Pradesh or the Senkaku Islands.

What India needs is positive nationalism that will enable her in overcoming divisions and scale greater heights, in terms of prosperity for her people and the well being of all nations. Setting up symbols such as a National War Memorial and the National Military Memorial are important steps in this direction. As the famous quote aptly puts it, “Poor is the nation that has no heroes….Shameful is the one that, having them…forgets.”

A GENUINE GRIEVANCE

Language cannot determine IAS aspirants’ fate

The arson and rioting which aspirants of the Indian Administrative Service have indulged in on the streets of Delhi in protest against the Civil Service Aptitude Test and the reported high-handed conduct of Delhi Police are both unfortunate. But while the law and order machinery must do its job with sensitivity and the agitating members should take care not to let violence creep into their movement, the issue that the protesters have raised has merit. It is good that the Union Government has assured Parliament and the students that the concerns will be addressed and that the students will face no injustice. The Government has constituted a panel to study the matter, and the panel will submit its report soon. At the core of the controversy is the CSAT, which, agitationists and several experts believe, is heavily loaded in favour of students who have proficiency in the English language; this puts the others in a disadvantaged position. The Congress-led UPA Government had introduced the aptitude test in English in the preliminary examination in 2010 to evaluate a candidate’s ‘working knowledge’ of English. Reservations had been expressed then and they have remained since that time. However, the issue has boiled over now because aspirants decided to up the ante with the issuance of admit cards for the examination even as the Centre is studying ways to resolve the crisis. The controversy, therefore, is, like many others, a left-over of the Congress days, and the Narendra Modi Government must tackle it to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.

There are two aspects to the grievance at hand. The first is that undue weightage in terms of marks has been given to the CSAT. The second is that it makes no sense for India to continue with the British legacy of an over-emphasis on proficiency in English in the civil services as a means to create an ‘exclusive’ club of officers who are removed from the daily existence of ordinary citizens. The first point is well taken, because language cannot become a determining factor in the selection of candidates — other aspects of merit must be given more attention. Language is no determinant of skill either. But it is the second factor that deserves deep attention as it concerns the very philosophy which forms the crux of the civil services. Civil servants, at least those who opt for the IAS, have to directly engage with the people of the country — and a vast majority does not either speak or understand the language. What use would a high level of proficiency in English be to such officers? Hindi or other Indian languages play a greater and more enabling role in administration on the ground. Therefore, it does not appear wise for the examiners of the civil services entrance test to heavily tilt towards English in the selection of candidates. This does not mean that English must be given the short shrift; the agitationists are not demanding it either, as the language has its use, especially for aspirants who wish to join the Indian Foreign Service stream. The simple point is: No test must discriminate on the basis of language.

Unfortunately, the issue is being exploited by language chauvinists who seek to butter their political bread. They have been adding fuel to fire, rather than attempting to douse the flames of protest. Politics must not be played.

 
 
 
 
 

PM fast tracks government

PM Modi fast tracks government, silently
 
ROOTS OF POWERMADHAV NALAPAT  New Delhi | 26th Jul 2014
 

 
wo months since taking office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has effected significant changes across the spectrum of governance at the Centre, almost always without media attention. While experts on the Modi model of governance say that it will take six months for the changes to be visible, and two years before a new structure of governance is completed for ignition of the economy towards 15% growth, senior officials say that the difference between Modi and his predecessors has already become visible across the bureaucracy. “The difference is much more than the cosmetic effect of coming to work early”, an official disclosed, adding that “what is changing is the pace and quality of decision-making, now that we have a PM who is fully involved in both the initiation of policy as well as monitoring its implementation”.
Aware that the judicial system has become a bottleneck to growth, thanks to the inordinate cost and length of time of even routine litigation, the PM is setting up a National Litigation Data Grid (NLDG) “that would give immediate online information on every case being heard across the country, as well as the judges hearing the case”. This would enable monitoring and feedback by the Supreme Court of efficiency in the disposition of cases, as also give the public accurate and real-time data about the progress of cases across the country. In addition, “the PM favours the appointment of 200 additional High Court judges to reduce the backlog”, according to a senior official, who adds that “the objective is to ensure speedy justice and eliminate avoidable delays in the justice system”.
A colleague pointed to the PM’s directive that criminal cases against MPs be fast-tracked to ensure final completion within 12 months, and said that “the PM wants a similar result in all other cases as well”. Efforts will, therefore, be ongoing “to utilise both modern technology as well as additional judges to ensure faster delivery of justice during the next five years”. In the meantime, cases have proceeded even against very well-connected individuals, such as Sonia Gandhi in the National Herald case and Karti Chidambaram, son of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, in a case involving an ambulance service in Rajasthan.
Unlike in the past, when ministers operated as mini-PMs, running their fiefs they saw fit, not bothering about directives or advice from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), these days there is constant monitoring of all ministries and their political and departmental heads. An example was a minister hailing from Maharashtra, who had gone on a stroll outside his residence dressed in jeans and sports shirt, only to get a call from the PMO that perhaps such attire was “inappropriate” for a Cabinet minister to don in public. Another minister was queried about a huge dinner that he was in the process of holding at official expense, and was told by a PMO official that such an expense was avoidable. The dinner was called off.
Ministers are being made to justify the trips they have made by itemising the work done during such sojourns. “The purpose is to create a culture of accountability at the top”, an official said, adding that “the hardest working member of the Cabinet is the PM himself, who seldom works less than 16 hours each day”.
Price rise has been flagged as a major concern, especially of food items. In this context, speculators (who were allowed to operate in an uncontrolled fashion by the UPA) are sought to be curbed by the creation of a National Food Grid (NFG). This would “give accurate online data on the 3,600 mandis or major food produce markets operating across India, and thereby weaken the agricultural mafias now controlling the supply of food items from farmer to shopkeeper”, a senior official said, adding that “each of these changes is coming straight from the top”. According to him, Prime Minister Modi is also ordering the fast-tracking of an Agricultural Corridor from Punjab to West Bengal. Along this corridor, which would be served by modern highways and rail links, “village clusters are to be set up where vegetables and other food items could get processed”, including for export. “We hope to ensure that the farmer and not the farm product mafia gets the benefit of farm prices”, a senior official said, adding that “ending speculation will cool down the inflation fever that the mafias have created”. He expected that “the kingpin speculators will soon be subject to prosecution for the economic crimes they were encouraged to commit when Manmohan Singh was PM”.
Another boost to economic activity being proposed by Team Modi is a “Green Corridor” between Rajasthan and Gujarat, which would use solar power to generate significant volumes of electricity. Similar corridors are being considered across the country, so as to ensure an eventual transition from fossil fuels to non-conventional energy sources. Transport of people and goods across the country is being sought to be improved by identifying railway lines that can be improved to double existing speeds, while bottlenecks in highway construction are being identified for removal.
Interestingly, forest and environmental clearances that were a major block to economic activity during the UPA decade, are now going online, “with clear instructions from the PM that decisions should be taken within 24 hours”, except in rare cases. Rather than freeze or roll back economic activity as was the norm during the past decade, “this will be balanced against environmental needs so that any decision will be in overall public interest”, including the right of citizens to income and occupation.
Although news reports have appeared about the PM meeting Aadhar boss Nandan Nilekani and continuing the Aadhar program opposed by the BJP earlier, “in reality the scheme being finalised is not the same as Aadhar”, according to an official. Instead, what will get created is a database of “bona fide citizens”, which will be handed over to the Ministry of Home Affairs to create a National Population Register, “so that there is a clear record of every genuine citizen” as distinct from those who have entered the country illegally. “The data will be used to ensure that welfare benefits reach only those for whom they are intended”, rather than ending up in the pockets of politicians and officials, as has been the norm till now.
Importantly, keeping in view the need for food security, field trials have been cleared for 21 genetically modified foods, to supplement the five already okayed, which include brinjal, rice and cotton.
The Land Acquisition Bill passed by the UPA “has made it impossible to set up a large-scale industrial unit in India”, according to a senior official. Accordingly, changes are on the anvil that would lower the proportion of those affected consenting to land being acquired from 80% to 50%, while the definition of those who are “project affected” has been limited to husband, wife and children rather than — as previously — the extended family. Also, the “lapse clause” will be removed, so that those setting up units do not invest funds in the fear that the land will someday get reclaimed by the original owner. The officials stressed that this list, although long, is “only indicative, and there are many more such innovations being considered”.
The expectation is that within six months, the removal of the blockages created during the UPA period will result in an acceleration of overall growth to the double digit number in two years. “The Prime Minister may not be visible on stage or on television screens, but the effect of the change of government is being felt across the Central bureaucracy”, said an official, who added that on 15 August, Prime Minister Modi will for the first time “reveal the road map for what he and his team propose to achieve during their tenure in office”.

Listening devices found in Gadkari residence
Probe revealed that the bugs were ‘planted by a foreign agency. The sophisticated listening devices found are used only by western intelligence operatives.’
 
NAVTAN KUMAR  New Delhi | 26th Jul 2014
 

 
n a startling incident, high power listening devices were found in the bedroom of Nitin Gadkari at his 13 Teen Murti Lane residence in New Delhi. The discovery was “accidental” and a debugging exercise was immediately ordered.
According to highly placed sources, more devices were consequently discovered at the residence of the senior BJP leader who is also the Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways. Gadkari has apparently informed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat about the incident.
Initial investigations have revealed that the bugs were “planted in the house by a foreign agency since the sophisticated listening devices found are used only by western intelligence operatives, particularly the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA)”. It may be recalled that Edward Snowden’s revelations carried by Washington Post on 30 June stated that top BJP leaders were under surveillance by a premier US spy agency. It could not be ascertained who besides Gadkari were the other BJP leaders who had been spied upon. Operations may now be going on to check whether, or not, other prominent BJP leaders too were under surveillance by this external agency. The BJP-led NDA government lodged a strong protest with the US State Department following the publication of the news in the Washington Post.
Nitin Gadkari could not be contacted for his comments despite repeated attempts. There was no response to a text message sent to him on his cell phone. However, his executive secretary Vaibhav Dange said he was not aware of any such incident. When asked for Mr Gadkari’s comment, he said, “I have no information about it.”
It may be mentioned that Gadkari has since 2011 been among the most important leaders of the BJP. His proximity to the RSS leadership is well known. After the Modi government was sworn in, he, Arun Jaitley and Rajnath Singh are amongst the principal advisers of the Prime Minister.
Highly placed sources said the listening devices were of exceptionally high quality, such as not generally used in India. The Indian agencies which debugged the house have indicated the role of a foreign hand.
The incident comes in the wake of recent revelations that US’ top spy agency, National Security Agency, was authorised by a US court in 2010 to carry out surveillance on the BJP along with five other political organisations across the world, including Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Pakistan People’s Party. The NSA had sought permission to carry out surveillance, according to a document provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, which was made public by the Washington Post recently.
Snowden leaked thousands of classified documents to the media, uncovering the existence of numerous global surveillance programmes, many of them run by the NSA, which triggered worldwide outrage.
This is not the first such case of surveillance of senior politicians in recent times. In June 2011, there were reports that offices of the Ministry of Finance were bugged. President Pranab Mukherjee was heading the ministry at that time. About a year later, there was a report that the then Defence Minister A.K. Antony’s office had been bugged. While the details were not made public, the incidents were seen as a part of internal Congress politics, unlike in the present case, where the role of a foreign agency is suspected.

Speech of Geert Wilders of the Dutch Parliament

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ. THIS IS IMPORTANT   
  
This Will Give You Cold Chills!

Geert Wilders is a Member of the Dutch Parliament.
 

In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: “Who lost Europe ?” Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom the Netherlands , at the Four Seasons in New York , introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem ..

Dear friends,

Thank you very much for inviting me.

I come to America with a mission.  All is not well in the old world.  There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

First, I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe .  Then, I will say a few things about Islam.  To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem .

The Europe you know is changing.

You have probably seen the landmarks.  But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world.  It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.  And if they are, they might regret it.  This goes for the police as well.  It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners.  The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe .  With larger congregations than there are in churches.  And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region.  Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden .  In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.   Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils.  In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims.  Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’.  Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin   The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.  Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.  French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanyahu , Israel ..  I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live.   San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now.  Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers.  And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.  But there are few signs of that.  The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France ..  One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’.  And this is how we give them respect.  We have Muslim official state holidays.

The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.  We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey ..

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots.   Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus.  I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’.  Because that is what they are.  They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.  Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries.  Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet.  His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized.  Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Gandhi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem.  But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time.  Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed.  Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.  If it is good for Islam, it is good.  If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion.  Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins.  But in its essence Islam is a political ideology.  It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person.  Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life.  Islam means ‘submission’.  Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia.  If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.  The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor.  I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times.  I support Israel .  First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz; second because it is a democracy, andthird because Israel is our first line of defense.

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance.   Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia ..   Israel is simply in the way.  The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel .  It is a war against the West.  It is jihad.   Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us.  If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities.  But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values.  On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam.  They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed.  The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning.  It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination.  If they can get Israel , they can get everything.  So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’.  In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II.  And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.  Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing.  The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine.  An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America – as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs.  With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem ….

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts.  My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.  All throughout Europe , American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish.  My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians.  We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe ‘s children in the same state in which it was offered to us.  We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams.  Future generations would never forgive us.  We cannot squander our liberties.  We simply do not have the right to do so.

We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

Please take the time to read and understand what is written here. Please send it to every free person that you know. It is so important.
