Fear Of Terrorist Attack Repetition – In USA of 9/11 and India on Delhi High Court on 9/7

For almost a week, all Newspapers and Media carried the news of possibility of terrorist attack in USA and India. Both the countries took serious steps to tighten their security. USA cannot forgive and forget the terrorist attack on twin tower that resulted in the destruction of tower and death of many hundred innocent citizens. Reason for terrorist attack in USA is because of American intervention in Afghanistan with Army, tanks and plane to kill the Taliban of Afghanistan. Immediately American army started bombing some known and other unknown hide-outs of Taliban, particularly in the tribal area of Afghanistan. This infuriated Osama Bin Laden the so called apostle of Taliban and his followers who made up the mind to hit back by master minding attack on twin tower in New York and they succeeded and many American citizens persisted thus US President determined to take revenge by virtually occupying Afghanistan and after couple of years George Washington for no reason attacked Iraq thinking that Iraq was preparing and manufacturing nuclear bombs; which was not a fact American intervention and attack with bombs and missiles by US Army has continued since then. It is worthwhile to mention that Taliban was American creation so as to end Russian occupation of Afghanistan. But when US mission to expel Russia from Afghanistan ended America tried finishing militant Talibans and establishing pro-American rule in Afghanistan.

Why there have been repeated terrorist attacks in India particularly outside High Court of Delhi, besides terrible attacks in Maharastra on train killing hundred of innocent passengers? There are so many types of Jehadis in India, originally sponsored by Osama Bin Laden, who has been killed by Americans in his hideouts close to Islamabad in Pakistan. Pakistan had been sponsoring, arming and sending Talibans originally Pathans of NWFP across Kashmir to capture it and thereafter crossing the ceasefire line of Kashmir Valley and Jammu with India from remaining part of Kashmir with Pakistan (POK). Though present Chief Minister of Kashmir, Omar Abdullah his father and grand father have always been supporting India’s central government getting financial and military assistance to fight intruder Taliban and other terrorist from Pakistan.

Pakistan has been in turmoil since its independence and has been raising Kashmir question with India and even in UN besides sending Jehadis to cross the ceasefire line and kill Kashmir’s who are pro-India. As these Jehadis could not succeed in Kashmir they have been financing, training and sending to Kashmir. Bombay and Delhi since then because India is a soft state and UPA government did not give capital punishment to any Jehadi even those caught and jailed. Even Afzal Guru who was duly sentenced to death since long by the Supreme Court has not been hanged till now though it is likely that Afzal Guru and a few more may be hanged in near future. If that is done, India Mujahdins will or likely to cease attacks in Delhi and in other parts of India.

Home Minister P. Chidambaram should have taken steps to update and strengthen security not only around Delhi High court but all over capital. Had he done so there would not been attack on High Court of Delhi on Sept 7 killing a dozen and injuring 80 and naturally there would have been no further threat of repetitive of terrorist attack on High court or anywhere. Manmohan Singh as PM should have personally seen that security has been tightened instead of just visiting the injured in hospital after the attack.

There would have been no fear of repetition of 9/11 attack on Twin Tower in New York had American forces been withdrawn from Afghanistan and no attack on Iraq. America would have saved tens of trillion dollars and there would not have been any recession or debt crisis in USA which has caused recession in Europe and Asia virtually whole world. It is high time that Obama learn lesson from the blunders of George Bush and withdraws US troops not only from Afghanistan but also from Iraq.

To sum it up during last 64 years of independence India has not systematically improved its intelligence and police services with latest equipment and
training of security personnel: That is why there had been attacks on Indian territory first by China in 1962 and later on to this day attacks by Pakistan Army, Intelligence services and Terrorists sponsored, armed and trained by Pakistan: That is why India is continuously getting terrorist attacks mainly because Indian governments have been weak and relying on vote bank politics and not hanging many terrorist like Afzal Guru.

USA and India have become close friends in order to fight Terrorist Organisation of Pakistan like IM, LeT, JeM and HuJi

It is most significant and important that US Secretary of state Hillary Clinton on 15th Sept 2011 designated the Indian Mujahideen (IM) as a Foreign Terrorist organisation with links with Pakistan. Hillary Clinton designated the Indian Mujahideen as a Foreign Terrorist organisation (FTO) under section 219 of the immigration and nationality Act and a specially designated Global Terrorist under section 1(b) of Executive order 13224 US state department, clearly and definitely created terrorist group like IM, LeT, JeM and HuJi having significant links with Pakistan” IM in particular has been named as having close ties to other US designated terrorist organisation. States department also confirmed to the satisfaction of India that IM played a “facilitative role in 2008 Mumbai attack carried out by LeT that killed 163 people including six Americans.”

From the above serious and strong comments by US Secy of State and US State Deptt it becomes absolutely clear that US government and people are no longer indifferent to Jehadis attacks by IM and other terrorist organisation financed and supported by Pakistan, directly or indirectly by the Pakistan government which has caused havoc in India, latest being attack on Delhi High Court on 7th ­­­­­­­­September. Thus it is formal acknowledgement of US secretary of state and state Deptt that these designations (of terrorist organisation supported by Pakistan) highlight the threat of posed by Indian Mujahideen not only to western interest but to India, a close US partner”.

It is the first time in Indo-US history that India and USA have become “close partners” because Indian populace has borne the brunt of IM’S wanton violence and today actions illustrate our solidarity with the Indian government. This statement is heartening to Indian people and government was made by Daniel Benjamin, the Deptt of states coordinator for counter terrorism.

So for India has been suffering by terrorist supported by Pakistan. US has anti terrorist organisation to monitor and control and prevent terrorist activities in their country so that there is no repetition of 9/11 attack on twin towers in Washington or elsewhere in USA. Similarly India must have anti terrorist organisation with latest equipment and best intelligence, so that hereafter, there is no terrorist attack like that on Delhi High Court by IM or any other terrorist group financed by Pakistan with arms and intelligence. Thus anti terrorist organisation of India when it is farmed and headed by intelligence officers will even prevent any attack by Pakistan’s terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir, as has been going on since independence and no repetition of 26/11 attack on Mumbai.

For US-India friendship, some credit must go to PM Manmohan Singh who had visited USA and met President Obama many times and even US secretaries, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Foreign Minister Krishna or any other minister who visited USA had such a reception or such exchange of news. Though Manmohan Singh has been considered as weakest PM ever, but in this respect, for strengthening Indo-US relations, his contribution can not be ignored. In this respect Home Minister Chidambaram or Mukerjee or Antony had no contribution at all though they are quite close to Sonia Gandhi.

Latest news is that US President Obama has refused to meet Pakistan PM Yousuf Gilani. As a result Pakistan PM has called off his visit to attend UN General Assembly Session.

Why should there be Debate in British House of Commons on Human Rights violation in Indian Kashmir?

What business or right Britain has to debate on human rights violation in British House of Commons on Indian Kashmir when the whole world knows that violation of human rights in Pakistan, which is epicentre of terror, at its height. There are daily suicides bombing attack on innocent in Pakistan and in relation Pakistan Army’s conflict or retaliation in which are almost daily. It seems that British conservative and indirectly British government which allows such a debate is guilty of violation of India’s sovereignty. Just to please Pakistan Muslims who are British citizens in great number and to get their votes. It is surprising that British Foreign and Commonwealth officials have commented that “British Parliament is entitled to debate”. Has Indian Parliament debated on Human rights violation in UK during the August 2011 riots in which many lost their lives and many houses, shops were burnt and looted? British Indian’s particularly British Sikhs prevented the riot from spreading and showed on video the happenings and atrocities, British public. Even the British PM Cameron praised the UK Indians for their efforts to maintain peace.

Whole of the world knows including USA and its President Obama that Pakistan is hub of terrorism that is why USA has been attacking Pakistan’s NWFP and Baluchistan with Drone attack for years. But British Parliament instead of debating human rights violence in Pakistan has chosen to debate on human rights violation in India’s Kashmir. Whenever there is intrusion of Pakistan terrorist in Kashmir, since Pakistan origin, India has to use its Armed forces to curb such aggression and luckily Indian Kashmir is comparatively free from terrorists today.

As in India, in Indian Kashmir there is working democracy. In Kashmir, too, unlike in Pakistan, there has been never dictatorship from the day Kashmir acceded to India on the pleading of Sheikh Abdullah in 1947 when Pakistan sponsored, trained, armed and financed terrorist from NWFP were sent to Kashmir for illegal occupation and terrorist activities.

Even on 14th September 2011, American Ambassador in Afghanistan said that “Pakistan based Haggane’s network appeared to be responsible for an hour long assault against US embassy in Kabul and nearby Nato Bases” Even China has charged Pakistan for sponsoring and arming terrorist in the China border town of Kashgarh, Pakistan being the source of arms and training the terrorist to the terrorist operating in this region. To allay the security concerns in the area of China, Pakistan has sent six delegations including those led by President Zardari in the short span of a month three more Pakistani teams led by Bilal Bhutto, President Zardari’s son visited china during last few weeks to pacify Chinese government.

It should be clear to British Parliament which country is sponsoring terrorism. Pakistan as is well known has been sponsoring terrorism in India Kashmir and not India. British PM should ban the proposed discussion so as to be just and honest and also to have good relations with British Indians as well as government and India. India has already conveyed to the British government that the proposed debate “will not be helpful” India has rightly emphasized that “India is the world’s largest functional democracy”, Though British government information office has expressed the view that the deliberation in House of Commons will be an expression of the House” these would be “non binding on the British government. But that is not enough. If House of Commons wants to discuss it should have detailed deliberations on Pakistan as hub of terrorism.

While British conservatives are targeting India, US
Secy of states Hillary Clinton and US government have on 15-9-11 openly targeted Pakistan. A statement by state government in Washington said that Indian Mujahdins “maintain close links to Pakistan based Lakshar-e-Taiba (Let) Jaish e Mohammad JEM and Harkat-e-Jihad (HEJC)” British conservatives and British government should note that and take steps that such anti India discussions do not take place in British House of Commons, in future .

His Majesty’s Opponent- Subhas Chandra Bose and India’s Struggle against Empire by Sugata Bose – Brief Book Review.

Netaji Bose’s fight and suffering for India’s independence, if not more, was no less than that of Mahatma Gandhi or any other leader who gave his everything, including life, for India’s Freedom from British rule. The Book under review gives minute details from his childhood, studies in Cambridge University, selection in ICS, the most coveted service in early 20th century, his resignation at the age of 24 only on and joining of independence movement his election as President of Indian National Congress and his resignation manipulated and forced by Mahatma Gandhi when he got elected second time in 1939 his imprisonment in India, his going abroad to Germany and then to Japan, to fight against British Empire for freedom of India through INA in Singapore and ultimate hidden cause of his demise and his rehabilitation.

India’s greatest freedom fighter – Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose never supported the British whether in India, in Cambridge and London or in any other European country that he visited a number of times and delivered fiery speeches against British imperialism and British atrocities in India. Subhas was unlike Gandhi who had supported British till the end of 1st World War and even recruited soldiers for British imperialist and was called by Annie Besant, a true freedom fighter first in Britain then in India as British sergeant though for the sake of Indian’s independence she joined Independence movement led by the Mahatma Gandhi’s non violence struggle for independence of India. She was and remained true soldier of India’s Freedom struggle till 1939.

When Subhas Bose was elected president of Indian National Congress in 1938. His inaugural address was in the words of learned author of the Book, most important, “most detailed political speech that he would ever deliver in India”. In this speech Subhas Bose challenged the British imperialists to transfer­­­­­­­­­­­ ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ their Empire into “federation of nation” and that policy of divide and rule was by no means blessing for the ruling power.” ­­­­­Bose further mentioned about evil intentions of British that they would seek some other constitutional device for partitioning India and there by neutralising the transfer of power to Indian people” Subhas Bose’s inaugural address was supported by all Indians including Gandhiji, Nehru and Sardar Patel, the most prominent leaders of Indian independence struggle in 1938.

Subhas Bose’s reelection as Congress President in 1939 defeating Gandhiji’s choice Sitaramya was considered by Gandhi as his personal defeat and Sadar Patel responded saying that Subhas “reelection is held to be harmful to country’s cause” but that great poet Tagore hereafter supported Bose, the “rebel” president of Congress. “In the words of learned author of the Book” for the next year and half Tagore would continue to be a rock of support during his travel” Subhas Bose who had resigned as Congress President in view of Gandhi – Patel and other Congressmen’s opposition so as to keep the congress independence movement under4 Gandhiji, in the words of author “enjoyed the brief respite from Congress politics in the idyllic setting of Tagore’s university” Tagore gave Subhas the title of “Deshnayak” leader of the country.

Subhas Bose resisted being expelled from Congress that he had served since 1921. Regarding disciplinary action against him by Congress High Commission Bose wrote on August 19, 1934 as a true congressman and freedom fighter that “shall cling to congress even with greater devotion than before and shall go on serving the congress and the country as a servant of the nation”. The learned author’s remark on this historic event is noteworthy though disciplinary action had been taken against him just over a month before. Subhas Chandra Bose was specially invited to attend congress working committee meeting at Wardha. He urged the Congress to launch a mass movement to wrest India’s freedom from Britain. But the congress leadership was not ready to do this” Such vast differences led Subhas Chandra Bose to fight foe Independence with help of Germany and Japan, then enemies of Britain. So Subhas Bose or Netaji went to Japan to fight for India’s independence with the ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­armed struggle through Indian National Army INA. It must go to the credit of Subhas Bose that he forged absolute unity between Hindu Muslim and Sikh in his INA. With the defeat of Axis power – Germany and Japan in 1945, INA, too, got defeated and Subhas Bose, too. But while the Muslim soldier of INA who came to Pakistan were included in Pakistan army while Indian were made prisoners till India’s independence but were not included in the Indian Army as Nehru was “under the influence of Lord and Lady Mountbatten”.

It is said that had Subhas Bose been leader of India after independence there would not have been partition riots in which more than a million innocent Hindus and Sikhs and Muslims perished. Habibur Rahman who was Netaji’s companion in final plane journey from Taipei to Tokyo carrying Netaji’s ashes wrote in 1946, “How much we wish that he had come alive, in that case it is more than certain that he would have occupied a dominant position in India politics” and relation between India and Pakistan would have been “cordial rather than embittered”. ­ ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
