Anarchy in UK and commendable Role of UK Indians

There have been large scale riots or anarchy in UK particularly in London in which, according to latest figure 30,000 people were involved. The rates continued unabated for four days. Metropolitan police figure have revealed on 22nd August that there were 3296 crimes committed during Mail indicating that average of 10 people were linked to committing each crime Scotland Yard (Public statement) on Monday.

Another significant report that is of pride for India community in London particularly the Sikh community channel, like BBC, CMM and Sky news, uninterrupted for five days of rioting from August 8 to 11. It is noteworthy that Indian community demonstrates courage with swords to prevent rioters coming near to their locality. 31 years old Upendra Randhawa was the hero. He and his crew performed the outstanding job of keeping the thousands of rioters away and being photographed as during all the few days. It is because of Sangat TV of Randhawa a 31 years old UK Sikh that police has been able to identify the criminals and take action against them. It is not only India but UK is also proud of Sangat TV and Sikh community. British PM has paid a high tribute to British Sikh.

Unprecedented and unthought of riots that started in London on 6th August. Spread to Manchester, Birmingham and to many other cities. British Police was unable to control the rioters by strict action as it happens in other countries. In no time the rioters torched cars and thereafter even buildings, putting to shame law abiding British citizens. Rioters even started looting shops. There were some riots in 1980’s but insignificant in comparison to riots of August 2011. There were racial clashes in 1980’s but in 2011 riots have been engineered by unemployed and spoilt British youth.

The riots commenced on 4th August when Police, intending to arrest a Youngman in Tottenham, instead shot him dead. This led to march to police station by the family of the dead Duggan along with 300 more. Police were overwhelmed and 26 police officers were injured in the spontaneous rioting and the rioters started burning cars and looting shops and burning houses. Even rioters lodged petrol bombs on the police but British police to save its prestige did not respond with more police firing to kill the rioters. So the riots spread and continued for few days.

When the riot were not subsiding but were going out of control, British PM David Cameron on August 9th wanted riots to stop immediately. He trebled the police force of London to 16,000 borrowing from other faces. But riots and killing of three Asian men in Birmingham were killed when a car went upto the pavement and crushed them.

The root cause of rioting was the frustration of the so called underclass of UK youth, who increasingly felt that they were ignored. This underclass could not study due to modern technology and so could not get jobs and attain much.

Relation between Pakistan India and USA- Despite Taliban’s

Cordial relations between India and Pakistan as well as USA and Pakistan are quite difficult though both India and USA are trying their best ignoring Taliban’s daily attacks as ell as suicide bombing killing many innocent civilians besides Pakistan Army Soldier. Recently a dozen Pakistan’s military men were killed. Most of the attacks of Taliban’s are in NWEP and Baluchistan though there have been few fierce attacks in Karachi killing civilians men women and children besides Army men. Question arises, can Pakistan Army or even US Drone attacks end Taliban’s attacks? It does not seem possible till NWEP and Baluchistan get independence as Pashtu speaking Pathans of these two states having nothing in common with rest of Pakistan which is dominated by Punjabis who constitute about 80% of Pakistan’s Army and more than 75% of Pakistan’s civil service.

Pakistan dismemberment or break up started when East Pakistan declared itself independent state of Bangladesh on March 26, 1971. Pakistan sent Army to crush East Bengal citizens till then part of Pakistan. In the Civil war between West Pakistan Army and East Pakistan Bangladesh citizen more than a million people had died before East Bengal leader’s appeal to India send it’s Army which within 15 days defeated Pakistan, Army and India’s General Aurora accepted surrender from Pakistan’s general along with 1 Lakh Pakistani soldiers who were taken as prisoners and sent to India. Despite this humiliating defeat and surrender Pakistan mostly under military rulers continue to fight in Kashmir and even had fought and got defeated in a number of wars with India.

India has been facing and suffering from Taliban (originally Pathans of NWFP) since independence. In 1948 when Kashmir had signed instrument of Accession with India, Pathan Pakistani terrorists had reached near Srinagar after killing many on the way, Sheikh Abdullah leader of Kashmiris came running to Pandit Nehru, PM of India, demanding acceptance of instrument of accession and sending Indian Army units to prevent their reaching Srinagar. As Mountbatten Governor General of India favoured Pakistan, he put a clause “that will of the people” of Kashmir will be taken into account through refrendum. Nehru being PM but under influence of Mountbatten and his family did not delete this clause as PM or advised Governor General to delete it. This one ­mischief of Mountbatten who as British imperialist added this clause and blunder of Nehru has cost India and Kashmir thousands of lives during last 63 years. Accordingly India’s problem with Pakistan remains to this day and is likely to remain till dismemberment of Pakistan. In addition there has been attack on Mumbai in September 2011 killing more than 200 for which Pakistan has neither surrendered the criminals to India nor punished itself.

USA’s problem with Pakistan started with attack by suicide bombers though use of aeroplane on twin towers in New York destroying the towers and killing hundreds of innocent Americans. Pakistan needs billions of dollars from America to pay salaries to its Army and even to survive. While USA needs Pakistan help so that Pakistan Soldiers, as far as possible, control the Taliban which simultaneously USA is trying to eliminate with daily Drone attacks in NWFP and Baluchistan. As Obama is facing election in 2012, he is particular that so long as he is President of USA he keeps Pakistan as USA’S associate if not friend, so that Taliban are kept under dual attack by Pakistan Army and US Drone attack. It will be for the next President of USA Obama or someone else to either strengthen relation or ignore Pakistan leaving it to itself, because by the end of 2011 or in early 2012 America is committed to withdraw its own and NATO forces from Afghanistan after 10 years of intervention to finish or control Taliban. It has been USA’s absolute failure as Taliban remain violent killing or suicitor bombing both President Karzai’s Kabul and other areas as well as NATO faces in Afghanistan.
