Samajwadi Party and Muslims
During pre-election campaign in UP the SP under the dynamic leadership of Supremo Mulayam Sangh Yadav went on promising for the implementation of innumerable schemes for the progress, betterment and upliftment of Muslims in his state out of which at least on two occasions he indicated if his party occupy the top position in assembly his party may opt for a Muslim CM to prove the secular, political and non-communal credential stand of the SP. However, after getting thumping majority, he restricted the chief ministership around his family by appointing his son Akhilesh as CM thus forgetting that Muslims in U.P. wholeheartedly showered their votes in favour of S.P. Promises made by Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav appeared attractive and substantial in nature which forced Muslims to vote enblok in favour of S.P. Hence it is not correct to claim that it was charming efforts and political approach of young Akhilesh but the party is back in power with absolute majority. Now the Yadavs should not overlooked that the Muslim votes only brought the party in power. Now it is upto the party leadership to realise the truth and materialise all the promises forcefully in positive way without caring for the objection and criticism from opposition. It is hoped that soon Mr. Mulayam Singh may take up the Batla House fake encounter with central government and the home minister of India who is bent upon to prove it a genuine one. It is also expected from his government that all innocent Muslim youths languishing behind bars in false terror charges to be released soon and rehabilitated.

Through Sri Sri read the mentality
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar founder of “Art of Living” organisation while speaking at a function of Sangh run school Aadarsh vidy mandir, Jaipur said “Government should not run any school because it is often found that boys, who studied in government sends, treads to the path of naxalism and violence; I feel that all schools and college should be privatised and handed over to some other organisations.” It is not Ravi Shankar’s fault but the mentality’s fault, it is the mentality who made propaganda that Madrasas are nursery of terrorism, it is the mentality who snatched minority character of AMU and Jamia, it is who opposed AMU Campus, it is who opposes justice to Muslims and deny due share to Muslims, it is who blocked judicial inquiry of Batla fake encounter, it is who demolished historical Babri Masjid, it is who engineer riots it is the mentality who denies Muslim’s kids admission in private top schools (Ramvilas Paswan raised the issue in Rajya Sabha on 19 March) it is the mentality who prepares the budget in which only 3135 crores allocated for minority welfare, but trillions siphoned through ghotala and it is the mentality allows black money to stash in foreign banks etc. This the mentality dominates in every political party. They avoid debating the reasons behind naxal spreading.

Sack the army chief
The inaction of the army chief against the man who had offered bribe must have been apprehended. The question is how anyone can approach the army chief with evil intention to bribe him? The purchase of lower grade vehicles should have come in the notice of defence minister. Before purchasing the motors the technical staff should have examined the consignment and given clearance to the army chief. How the army chief can accept bribe and put the order for purchase of low grade vehicles for defence purpose in bulk. Here there is slackness of the defence minister has come into light. Secondly the payer has declared that people had taken money before you (army chief). If this important information has been passed to the army chief how he could hide his identity. It is the inexcusable crime against the nation for which the army chief can be sacked pending inquiry. Mr Manmohan Singh and the president of India should form a committee to examine all the material of low grade purchased by the generals and colonels. The bribes collected by them should be recovered from them with fine. The companies which supplied such low grade material to the army must be cancelled and the total cost must be recovered. The news of involvement of the army chief in bribes will boost the morels of the army of China and Pakistan and they will think to get upper hand on Indian Army. This remote ill effect must be perceived by the ruling junta of the nation. We as a nation lost faith in our army for we cannot anticipate that such corrupt army will be able to protect us from our enemies.

Progress of Bihar–myth or reality
Progress and development in Bihar is much elaborated in media like Shining Bihar but the figures regarding housing, household amenities and assets in Bihar released by the census of India 2011 reveals that kerosene is the main source of lighting for 82.4 percent of its 1.89 crore families in Bihar just over 16.4 percent families are able to light their lives with electricity’s. Over 77 percent families in Bihar go for defecation in the open due to absence of toilets. For drinking water 89.6 percent families in Bihar depend on hand pumps and tube wells, 4.3 percent on wells and 4.4 percent on tap water. Only 33.5 percent families have access to kitchen. On the other hand Lord Karan Bilimoria President of India-UK Business Council visited India to participate in Pravasi Bhartiya Diwas on 6 January 2012 at Jaipur and he cheered brisk sale of wine in Bihar. He was upbeat about his MNC venture for brewery saying it was all about the governance and leadership of Nitish Kumar. According to beer market record, in the last five years Bihar Market has grown approximately 10 times. Is it myth created by media about development of Bihar or really Bihar is progressing? Is Bihar full of paradoxes?

Turmoil in Syria
After recent fail visit of UNO special envoy Kofi Annan things are going from bad to worst in several Syrian cities and innocent civilian population is paying high price. After worst peace situation, several countries have already closed their Embassies in Syria. True reality is that despite presence and visit of UNO special envoy, Brutal army operation and killing of innocent people is still on in several Syrian cities and due to personal interest world community has turned a blind eye. Despite killing of large number of civilians, UNO Security Council has failed to bring any change in troubled Syria. According to UNO own estimates five thousand people have lost their lives in last ten months violence. Most of them killed were unarmed civilians who lost their lives when forces loyal to Asad regime attacked several cities with tanks and other heavy weapons. Foreign media is banned and due to worst bloodshed and military operation in key cities normal population find it hard to provide daily necessities of lives to their families. Unfortunately, President Asad is making same mistakes and underestimating events like former Libyan ruler Qaddafi did. Like Qaddafi Syrian president is also accused of foreign element and said terrorist and tough are making situation bad to worst. But true reality is that most of resistance forces belong to its own army. In present worst situation only departure of president Asad and free and fair elections can bring change in the region.

Myanmar calling
The UPA government in what it considered “national interest” has in the past not chosen to be a vocal and vociferous supporter of the rights of the Myanmar people. In the November of 2010, our response to the release of Suu Kyi from house arrest after a decade and a half of her incarceration was at the most lukewarm. When congratulatory messages fulsome in praise of Aung San Suu Kyi poured in from world leaders like US president, UK’s prime minister, UN’s secretary general and EU’s commissioner rejoicing at her release, our minister of external affairs –not prime minister- lauded her release as a step taken by Myanmar junta “towards national reconciliation. If by “national reconciliation” India meant restoration of democracy and human rights, the minister failed to say so. Perhaps to the Manmohan Singh government such reconciliation meant Suu Kyi falling in line. Even now the UPA government has not had much needed course correction. Our congratulations to Aung San Suu Kyi on her’s thumping electoral victory in the April 1 elections were conveyed by the spokesperson of the Ministry of external affairs and not by the prime minister or Minister of external affairs. Our prime minister is scheduled to visit Myanmar months after Pakistan’s Asif Zardari, US’s Hillary Clinton and UK’s William Hague. How much the Myanmar leader banks on India’s moral and political support is clear from her answer when asked what her expectations from India are: “More, more and more. India can never do enough for democracy in Myanmar.”

Letter leak
The defence minister Mr. AK Antony is making fuss of the letter leak of general Singh. He said that it will only help enemies. I think his concept of enemies needs to be amendment as our enemies are not so naives. They pretty well know the power and vigour of our army. Earlier army Chief General Deepak Kapoor had publicly declared that our forces are not able to fight with Chinese army and they had proved also. When the Chinese army entered 300 Km in our territory in Laddakh sector our army could not stop them. They broke the border wall of Arunachal Pradesh. Our army remained a mute spectator. Recently the Chinese planes interrupted the air spaces of Himachal Pradesh. Our air command did not show any retaliation. The other enemy Pakistan has allowed Chinese forces to construct roads and bridges in POK. Our forces are calm and no objection is raised. On 26/11 the Pakistani terrorist attacked Mumbai and killed 160 innocent Indians. Our army should have attacked Pakistan. But our weak army and brave generals were busy in playing cards. Our defence ministers just laugh in the parliament and stand before the General as his subordinate. The prime minister is so meek that he will show more subordination than the defence minister. I am afraid that our enemies will take the chance of this state of affair and invade from both sides. The general and the defence minister will busy in allegations and counter allegations. The opposition leaders are thinking to pull down the UPA government

Gita in MP school
Madhya Pradesh High Court has given its nod on the decision of government to introduce Gita in schools on the basis that Gita is not Hindu religious book but it represents Bharatiya sanskriti. But the news of not banning Gita teachings of extremism in Russia. Press Trust news (21 March 2012) reads that Gita Hindu religious book translation banning petition rejected by Russian Court. This is the modus operandi of saffron brigade to push Hinduism through cultural nationalism and judiciary puts seal on it. That is why Digvijay Singh had said that saffron brain occupied posts.

Heart rendering news
“India News” channel aired a heart rendering report about a school where begging methods are taught. (23 March 2012 – 9.20 pm). Reports say that there is a school situated in thickly Muslim populated locality of Barari Block in Katihar district where more than hundred kids are taught how to beg. By witnessing the report any body could make out that check lungi clad having beards were teaching begging tricks. Few days earlier we also came to know similar kind of story from Kishanganj where a poor Muslim lady was selling her two year son. But we find enormous number of Muslim organisations organising mushairas. Now time has come that right thinking Muslims must oppose mushairas band bajas horse camel whole night processions in the name of Islam or other wanton activities in the name of Islam. We must introspect.

Fast of Anna for death of whistle blowers
Team Anna sat on one day fast at Jantar Mantra against the killing of 25 whistle blowers like Manju Nath, Narendra Kr. (S.P.) etc. Kejriwal (important member of Team of Anna) said that Parliament debated two hours against slapping to Sharad Pawar but Parliament did not mention Narendra Singh (SP) death. But 2500 innocent Muslims in Gujarat, 2000 Muslims in Mumbai, and 3000 innocent Muslims in Bhagalpur killed. Team Anna must clear their stand on innocents killing in riots.

Army vs. Ministry of Defence
Since Army General V.K. Singh’s age confusion suspect television debate continued. In this debate political analyst, defence experts, political parties representatives, retired army top brass has been debating. Watching these debates I personally found that there are some hindrance between defence personal and the ministry of defence. The retired top defence brass said that army officials avoid visiting defence ministry even generals too. The domination of Indian bureaucrats in the ministry created wedge. A report released by Hong Kong base political and economic risk consultancy it reveals the India’s bureaucracy is the worst in Asia with a 9-21 rating out of 10 i.e. India fared worst than Vietnam. Singapore topped with a rating 2.25.

Ghulam Rasool languishing in jail
Police slapped many charges on Ghulam Rasool alias Mirza Khan including terror charges, anti-national activities, fake passports etc. when police caught him at Purnia junction on 12 Jan. 2010. Since two years police couldn’t present any concrete evidence barring two policemen but terror charge could not stand in court afterwards only dates are extending in his case 992 / 10. He has developed stone in his stomach and admitted in Purnia Sadar hospital. If Police could not present evidence in two yrs. then judiciary must not linger the case to release the innocent and if culprit police who was responsible for slapping fake charges punished then it will be complete justice.

Hearing Batla, ruling class tremble why?
Home affairs minister of state Mullapally Ramchandran replied to questing in Parliament that NHRC investigated Batla house encounter and reached on conclusion that encounter was genuine so there is no need for any further inquiry (26 March 2012). Ruling class if so sure then why not allow a senior retired justice to investigate. Ruling class know the Pathribal, fake encounter, Ishrat Jahan encounter proved to be fake, and now Ghaziabad CBI court has convicted 19 policemen (two died) in the 2001 Sevindra fake encounter at Bijnore. In Pathribal (J&K) army killed seven innocent people on 25 March 2000. Army claimed victims were foreign terrorists and on 19 March 20212 CBI told SC “Army personnel murdered innocents and the accuse officials deserve to be meted out exemplary punishment. Police claimed Suvendra was Khalsa terrorist and Ishrat Jahan Lashkar terrorist as Batla house victim’s police claimed mastermind of terror.

Public representative and Parliament towering image
People saw agitation of Anna, Parliament debate and TV debates about targeting Parliamentarians and protection of parliamentary supremacy i.e. team Anna vs. Parliament. In every debates and programmes no one touched the issue that a chief minister gave written affidavit to court and promised to National Integration Council (NIC) to protect historical Babri Masjid but in contrary got it demolished. As a chief minister whose primary duty is to protect the lives of people asks police officers to go slow in doing duty during riots. MP who was dire against communal forces and saffron party but he visits RSS H/Q Jhandewalan and helps to prop saffron governments. This lowers the image of people’s representatives and parliament in the eyes of the people of India.

This hospital is array in the gloom of darkness during 1992-93 Babri Masjid demolition years, Bangalore was ravaged. Many Muslims were stabbed and injured and their treatment became challenge during that tense period. Then it was felt a necessity of hospital in Muslim area. In 1993, few Muslims took this matter and now a big hospital in Muslim locality (Shivaji Nagar) could start functioning. Ummah must redefine their priority with agenda Ta’leem, Tanzeem and Tijaarat.
