Sri Aurobindo’s Clarion Call

“Mother India is not a piece of earth; She is a Power, a Godhead, for all nations have such a Devi supporting their separate existence and keeping it in being. Such beings are as real and more permanently real than the men they influence but they belong to a higher plane, are part of the cosmic consciousness and being and act here on earth by shaping the human consciousness on which they exercise their influence. It is natural for man who sees only his own consciousness individual, national or racial at work and does not see what works upon  it and shapes it, to think that all is created by him  and there is nothing cosmic and greater behind it”, proclaimed Mahayogi Sri Aurobindo in a letter which he wrote on December 2, 1946.

The political leaders of Bharat on the eve of Indian Independence lost sight of this grand vision of the great Mother and saw Her only as a stretch of earth—a land to be ruled—and in their eagerness to grab power when it came near because of the inability of the British to continue any more their colonial Raj on account of the heavy losses suffered in World War and the revolt of the mercenary Indian Army, Navy and Air force under the influence of the Indian National Army of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, they played into the hands of the cunning white man to divide Indian Empire to permanently weaken it and agreed to the partition of the nation. To the misfortune of the nation and the good luck of the power hungry politicians, Netaji, the real father of Independent India, was not on the scene and the story that he died in a plane crash was in circulation. The Congress leaders proclaimed themselves as the architects of Indian Independence and snatched the ruler-ship of the truncated India which bled heavily due to the vivisection. Sri Aurobindo who was a recluse at that time, proclaimed in his message on the All India Radio on the occasion of Indian Independence on August 15, 1947:

“India is free but she has not achieved unity, only a fissured and broken freedom…. The old communal division into Hindu and Muslim seems to have hardened into the figure of a permanent political division of the country. It is to be hoped that the Congress and the nation will not accept the settled fact as ever settled or as anything more than a temporary expedient. For if it lasts, India may be seriously weakened, even crippled: civil strife may remain always possible, possible even a new invasion and foreign conquest. The partition of the country must go,–it is to be hoped by a slackening of tension, by a progressive understanding of the need of peace and concord, by the constant necessity of common and concerted action, even of an instrument of union for that purpose. In this way unity may come about under whatever form –the exact form may have a pragmatic but not a fundamental importance. But by whatever means, the division must and will go. For without it the destiny of India might be seriously impaired and even frustrated. But that must not be.”

Warning by Dr. Ambedkar

Partition brought unprecedented massacre and bloodshed of innocent Hindus who were driven out of their homes, villages and towns which fell in the territory of the Islamic nation carved out by Jinnah. Millions were uprooted from their homes and thousands of Hindu women were raped and children massacred by the fanatic Muslims in Pakistan while Gandhi, Nehru and other secular Congress leaders saw to it that the Hindus in the Indian territory did not on the whole react violently against the atrocities committed against their brethren in West Punjab and Sindh and instead gave enough protection to the Muslims in the Indian territory. By the end of 1947, 40 lakhs of Hindus came to India as refugees. Immediately after the partition, the Pakistani Army invaded Kashmir and the Indian Army pushed them back. However, before they could evict the Pakistani soldiers from Indian Territory, Pandit Nehru took the Kashmir issue to UN thereby making the Kashmir problem a permanent headache to our nation.

Dr. B.R. Ambedkar had rightly warned that the Muslim appeasement policy of the Congress would prove itself to be a permanent and prolonged nemesis to India. He had written: “It seems to me Congress has failed to realize two things: the first thing was the Congress has failed to realize the difference between appeasement and settlement and the difference is an essential one. Appeasement means buying off the aggressor by conniving at his acts of loot, rape, arson and murder against innocent persons. On the other hand settlement lays down boundaries which neither party can transgress. Appeasement sets no limit to the demands or aspirations of the aggressor. Settlement does. The second thing the Congress has failed to realize is that the policy of concession has increased Muslim aggressiveness and what is worse Muslims interpret these concessions as a sign of defeatism on the part of the Hindus and the absence of will to resist. This policy of appeasement will involve the Hindus in the same fearful situation in which the Allies found themselves as a result of their policy of appeasement towards Hitler.”

Incessant Proxy War against India

In the Free India, the Muslim appeasement policy became an extreme necessity for the Congress for its survival as it had to depend more and more on the vote bank of the Muslims and minorities to fight against the rising patriotic Hindu forces. This emboldened the rabid communal-minded Muslims in the Indian Territory to act as agents of Pakistan and promote acts of terrorism to destabilize the Indian nation. The Pakistan occupied Kashmir became the breeding ground for the Islamic Mujahedeen to wage its war against India through wide-spread terrorist acts. From 1989, Pakistan has been provoking Kashmiri militants and saw that 55,000 Kashmiri Pundits were driven out of the valley.

The Inter-Service Intelligence of Pakistan went ahead with systematic planning and programme of promoting terrorism in Indian Territory by creating a widespread network of its agents recruited from treacherous Muslims in India. Dawood Ibrahim, a notorious don of Mumbai and international drug peddler, who flourished during the regime of Adur Rahman Antulay as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, became the chief of Islamic terrorist forces in India. In 1993, Davood Ibrahim’s group indulged in blasts in Mumbai. In 1998, the statistics prepared by the Ministry of Home Affairs spoke of the magnitude of ISI sponsored terrorism in India:

Civilians killed: 29,151. Security forces personnel killed: 5,101. Explosions caused: 4730. Persons rendered homeless: 2,78,601. Estimated private and public property damaged: Rs.2000 crore. Estimated Security related costs: (a) Compensation to victims, expenditure on displaced persons, border fencing, raising of local counter-terrorist forces etc.: Rs.18,500 crore. (b)Estimated expenditure on Army and Para-military forces deployed on internal security duties: Rs.46,000 crore. (c) Losses due to disruption of economic activity in terrorism affected states: unquantifiable. Automatic and other sophisticated weapons smuggled into Bharat: 61,900 (recovered only 47,700). High Explosives, mostly RDX, inducted: 51,810 kg. (recovered only 43,700 kg.)

It is not for nothing that an organization of just 25,000 personnel inflicted a “thousand cuts” on Bharat and unleashed such a well orchastered terror campaign that a country of one billion people is still fighting a no-win battle even as the security forces are stretched to their limits for the last three decades. The attack on Indian Parliament took place in 2005. The climax of this proxy war is the terrorist attack on Mumbai on November 26, 2008, which killed more than 300 people including foreign tourists and top police officials and commandos, injured more than 700, besides rocking the financial capital of the country. The target was to kill 5000 people. ISI recruited terrorists for Lashkar-E-Toiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Al Qaeda, the combined forces behind this operation.

Betrayal by the Ruling Politicians

Those who are directly responsible for the senseless violence that has taken place in Mumbai are none other than the UPA Government in power who deliberately slept over the messages and warnings of grave threat from the Islamic terrorists. Annoyed by the growth of Hindu nationalist forces in different states, the UPA Government drew out a nefarious plan to terrorize the Hindu leaders, especially the saints and spiritual leaders of the Hindu community, from supporting the pro-Hindu political forces. In order to combat the rising Hindu tide, they needed the support of the Muslims, Christians and the Communists and went out of the way to please them. They adopted a policy of going slow against the Islamic terrorists who indulged in large scale bomb blasts in different parts of the country, deliberately delayed the hanging of the terrorist Afzal Guru, sentenced to death by the Supreme Court,  failed to take action on the Christian militants who killed a Hindu saint, Swami Lakshmanananda and his disciples who were working against the Christian proselytization in Orissa, and to divert the attention of the people from growing Islamic terrorism, foisted cases against Hindu saints like Sadhvi Prajna and Shankaracharya of Sharada Peeth and spread the canard of Hindu terrorism though no evidence has been brought forth so far against the Hindu saints. In their over anxiety to denigrate Hindu leaders and prevent the growth of Hindu nationalist forces against the exposed camouflage of secularism, the Congress under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi preferred to turn their eyes away from the growing work of the ISI, LeT and Mujahideen in India.

Manmohan Singh, A.K. Antony and M.K. Narayanan were well aware of the plan of attacks of Islamic Militants coming to India through sea, right from early 2007. They slept over the warnings of Intelligence agencies. On March 8, 2007, the Defence Minister, A.K. Antony said in Lok Sabha: “There are reports about terrorists of various tanzeems being imparted training and likelihood of their infiltration through sea routes.” On May 9, 2007, Home Minister, Shivraj Patil said in Rajya Sabha: “As per available reports, Pak based terrorist groups, particularly LeT, have been exploring possibilities of induction of manpower and terrorist hardware through the sea route.” National Security Advisor, M.K. Narayanan, said on December 8, 2007: “According to our information, recruits from 14 to 15 countries have been identified as amongst the trainees there (on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border)…Training has been extremely rigorous—it is almost frightening in nature…Studies are being carried out about important targets, with regard to vulnerability, accessibility, poor security, absence of proper counter-terrorism measures, etc. The sea route, in particular, is becoming the chosen route for carrying out many attacks, even on land.” Shivraj Patil addressing the Directors General and Inspectors General of Police in November 2008 had said: “Some Lashkar-e-Toiba operatives are also being trained specially for sabotage of oil installations. There are plans to occupy uninhabited islands off the country’s coastline to use them as bases for launching operations on the Indian coast.”On November 13, 2008, just a fortnight before the assaults in Mumbai, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself had warned: “Terrorism and threats from the sea continue to challenge the authority of the State.”

Fahim Ansari, a Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist, was arrested in Uttar Pradesh on 31 December 2007 for attacking a camp of Central Reserve Police in MP. At that time police recovered from him, apart from guns and bombs, some maps drawn by him, presenting the Mumbai beach and the roads to different parts in the city and the time for journey to the spots. The places that Ansari had specified in the map included Chatrapati Shivaji Railway station, Taj Hotel, etc. which were targeted by the militants on November 26 attack. These maps were included in the charge sheet filed by the UP Police. Though the information was received even one year ago, no action was taken. Who ordered the police not to take any action in this regard?

In December 2008, ATS arrested in Lucknow, Abdul Jabbar, a Pakistani national, carrying documents related to the Army and maps of Lucknow, apart from Rs.9000 and a mobile phone.

Warning by Intelligence Agencies

The CIA in the first week of September, 2008, had shared information with India’s external espionage agency R&AW of a conspiracy being hatched to attack Mumbai through the sea route. Working on the details provided by the CIA, R&AW had gathered more information and had finally alerted its counterpart IB about Al Husseini, the LeT flagship, leaving Karachi port with terrorists on board. On November 19, the IB informed the Government about a Lashkar-e-Toiba vessel standing on the high seas, with details of the ship.  On October 12, IB had submitted a report on the possibilities of the Lashkar launching a sea-based commando operation to bring men and material into India. Earlier, on September 24, the IB had informed the Maharashtra Police and the Central agencies about the threat to top Mumbai hotels, naming the Taj, Oberoi and Mariott as possible targets and seeking more security there. Devabhai Bhagawatibhai Tandel, Vice-President of the Fishermen Association in Krishnapura village in Navsari Dt. had alerted the Maharashtra Government about some suspicious activities in the Arabian sea. Citing a US Intelligence official, ABC News reported that information about a potential attack “from the sea against hotels and business centres in Mumbai” was passed on to Indian counterparts in mid-October. CNN cited un-named Indian officials as confirming that not only did the US warn them of a water-borne attack in Mumbai, they were told twice, and specific locations, including the Taj hotel, were listed in the US warning. R&AW leaks pin down failure by National Security Adviser. The agency had passed on satellite intercepts of conversations on September 18, September 24 and November 29, which clearly said a hotel at the Gateway in Mumbai was targeted and the sea route would be used. A later transcript broadened the ambit of the targets by even naming the Taj, the Marriot, the Lands End, the Sea Rock, all sea front hotels eminently accessible by the sea, as well as the Juhu airfield.

Attack directed by LeT

Pakistani merchant vessel MV Al Hussaini was used by the ten LeT terrorists before they shifted to an Indian fishing boat to reach Mumbai. The captured terrorist, Ajmal Amin Kamal, has said that his other team members  caught hold of five men on MV Kuber and then killed four of them while keeping one—Amarsinh—alive to drive the launch vessel to Caffe Parade port in Mumbai. Even when the groups were holed up or ere moving around in Taj, Oberoi and Nariman House or engaged in combat with the NSG, they were continuously talking to the Chief of LeT intelligence and technology wing Zakir-Ul-Rehman and taking instructions from him through their satellite and mobile phones. The Lashka-e-Toiba handlers of the Mumbai attackers directed their Jihadi charges in a ruthlessly calm and calculated manner. Indian investigators have precise intercepts of conversation between the LeT squad in Mumbai and its Pakistani handlers. The terrorists spoke in rustic Punjabi accents and controllers were clearly located in Pakistan. “Aag lagao, aag lagao”, LeT bosses told Mumbai attackers. According to sources, details of Voice over Internet Protocol calls between the Jihadis holed up in the Taj and Trident hotels and Nariman House and their Lashkar bosses in Pakistan provide a chilling account of the remorseless efficiency with which the massacre was choreographed. The Pakistan-based leaders told their wards at Nariman House to kill the Israelis. The terrorists were also asked to spare Muslims in the two hotels. Kasab revealed that the bosses instructed his team to assemble at Karachi, where they stayed for over two m
nths and sharpened their Hindi before leaving for Mumbai.

LeT commander Zarar Shah, picked up from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir during the recent crackdown under US pressure, has not only admitted his own role, but implicated other Lashkar members as well, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a Pakistani security official. Pakistan navy and ISI were involved in training the Mumbai terrorists and more than three hundred such trained terrorists are ready to strike any time. IB says there are 800 centres of Jihadi militants and the Reserve Bank says they have 400 bank accounts.

Mounting Evidences

Conversation between the terrorists and Lashkar leaders, identified as senior Jihadis, Zarar Shah, Abu Hamza and Abu Qafa, is now a crucial part of the clinching evidence of Mumbai attacks being a handiwork of the ISI-backed Pakistani terror tanzim. Though the Lashkar leaders used VoIP to mask their identity and the origin of calls, cooperation from foreign agencies, including the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, helped Indian investigators access the call details. United States Senator John McCain has said that there is enough evidence of the involvement of former Inter-Service Intelligence officers in the planning and execution of the Mumbai attacks. Ejaz Haider, a senior Editor at the Daily Times, who attended a lunch in Lahore, which a select group of Pakistanis had with McCain, quoted him as saying: “The democratic government of India is under pressure and it will be a matter of days after they have given the evidence to Pakistan (that they decide) to use the option of force if Islamabad fails to act against the terrorists.” Suggesting that it is time for Pakistan to act, a Western diplomat told the Journal: “They’ve got the guys. They have the confessions. What do they do now? We want to see the entire terror infrastructure dismantled. There needs to be real prosecutions this time.” Mumbai Police on Tuesday, December 9, 2008, released pictures, names and aliases of all ten terrorists who wreaked havoc in Mumbai, along with area of Pakistan that they belong to. Sources in the security agencies claimed that Al Husseini, actually belonging to Lashkar-e-Toiba, was operating  under the guise of a merchant ship to evade  identity and that could probably be the reason of its sudden disappearance.

Antulay and Jaiswal attempt to Mislead

In spite of the voluminous evidence for the involvement of the ISI, LeT and Mujahideen in the attack on Mumbai, Minister of State for Home Affairs, Sri Prakash Jaiswal, had the guts to tell the media on November 29, 2008, ‘terror could be a conspiracy hatched by right-wing Hindu parties’. Abdur Rahman Antulay, had the guts to suspect the hand of Hindu terrorists in the shooting down of Hemant Karkare, the Chief of ATS, who died in the operation against the Mumbai terrorists on November 26, 2008. During the conversation of the terrorists with their bosses in Pakistan which has been tracked down by the intelligence, a terrorist told their boss in an excited voice: “Koi Commissioner mara gaya hai…”, — a reference to killing of ATS chief Hemant Karkare and a confirmation that he was not, as conspiracy theorists allege, specifically targeted. This is enough to show to what an extent the Congress leaders could go to appease the Muslims by shielding the terrorists and creating wild allegations against the imaginary ‘Hindu terrorists’ .

The resignations of Union Home Minister Shivaraj Patil, who failed to prevent the attack, and the Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil, who said such attacks are common in big cities and should not be taken seriously, in the aftermath of Mumbai attack, are just eye-wash. The role of many leaders of the secular parties who are in the pay role of the international don, Davood Ibrahim, is to be seriously investigated. One former Congress minister of Maharashtra has openly said that an associate of the don was found in the chamber of the Maharashtra Chief Minister and he has even threatened that the role of some political leaders will be revealed soon.

Role of Dawood Ibrahim

Drug Baron Dawood Ibrahim was directly involved in last month’s terror attacks in Mumbai, according to a top Russian official, Director of Russia’s Federal Anti-Narcotics Service, Viktor Ivanov. ‘The Mumbai terror has been planned for the last six months’ and ‘the terrorists came from Karachi; they landed on the Indian coast through boats; they were trained by Pakistan Navy for 12 to 18 months; Davood Ibrahim’s local infra structure has provided the logistics for the attack; the terror bears the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) stamp’, say the media reports citing Indian intelligence and Mumbai Police.

While Central Security agencies claimed that there was no role of local groups, Mumbai Police were looking for a Colaba based businessman, who allegedly runs a diesel smuggling racket for underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. An organization based in the US had said last month that it suspected the hand of Dawood Ibrahim in the Mumbai terrorist attack. “The killings in Mumbai appear to be a Dawood Ibrahim-style operation”, Ahmar Mustikhan, founder of the American Friends of Baluchistan, has said soon after the blasts.

Mumbai Police along with ATS and IB are working overtime to trace the trail of funds which were routed to India for terror attacks in Mumbai. They have questioned several members of the cartel, most of who operate in the guise of importers and exporters, suspected to be close to Dawood Ibrahim and Chota Shakeel and have scrutinized their transactions for large amounts from Pakistan, especially Karachi. The IB has pointed out one such transaction of about Rs. 1 crore from Karachi by an exporter from Mumbai who is a history-sheeter under the scan of IB. There is allegation that many of the terrorists have invested large amounts in share market. Has the Government ever probed who is the conduit through which these investments have been made?

Local Muslims behind the Terrorists

Kolkata Police arrested two persons—constable Muktar Ahmed Sheikh of Srinagar and a Sub-Inspector of State Police Crime Branch, for allegedly buying SIM cards on fake identities, three of which were used by Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists in Mumbai during the November 26 strikes. The Mumbai attack dossier given by India to Pak says that six terrorists, part of the Pakistani group which struck in Mumbai, had been sent to Kashmir for some operations. The Intelligence Bureau is unearthing details about fugitive terrorists Riyas Bhatkal, Touqueer and others who are suspected to have played a role in Mumbai multiple terror attacks. As Riyaz, Touqueer and his associates are from the southern region, the police are trying to find out whether they have helped the terrorists in carrying out one of the most brutal attacks on Mumbai.

Pakistani flags were hoisted in Tipusultan Chowk and Managuli Agasi in Bijapur on Sunday, December 7, 2008. Police suspect that hundreds of youths who underwent training in Pakistan occupied Kashmir could be members of the terror outfit which is the brain child of LeT. The arrests of many associates of Riyaz and Touqueer in the region might have turned the heat on the terrorists prompting them to hit back by carrying out the attacks on the commercial capital of the country. “They may have assisted in bringing terrorists from Pakistan through Arabian sea”, an IB official said.

Mumbai police’s revelation that the 10 attackers were part of a 30 strong suicide squad has given rise to fears that the remaining 20 recruits may be on the loose.

Unreliable support of US and Britain

For the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, it is “non-state actors” and not the state of Pakistan, who are guilty of Jihad in India. Manmohan’s statement last year that Pakistan itself is victim of terrorism encouraged her to give a clean chit to Pakistan. A day before Rice visited Pakistan and spoke of ‘non-state actors”, the US Joint Chief of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen was in Pakistan and he reportedly told the Pakistan government that the US itself had proof of the involvement of ISI in the attack.

Two US espionage officials, in their middle ages had come to Taj to evaluate the threat perception in case a terrorist attack was launched from the sea. They were at Taj after being alerted of a probable terrorist attack on Taj by CIA, the espionage agency of the US, and were expected to safeguard the interests of US citizens.  They were among the victims in the terrorist attack on Taj. The unanswered question is whether LeT had prior information about American agents in Taj and was the input on Al Husseini’s voyage shared with the US Agency?

A senior US Official was quoted by the Wall Street Journal as saying: “Pakistan can show its good faith by extraditing a couple of these people (to India).” What about the top brains behind the attack including their Indian associates like Davood Ibrahim who are taking refuge in Pakistan? Why is not America demanding the extradition of these criminals to India? For the US, Pakistan fighting the Taliban is more important than preventing Pakistani Jihadis operating in India. Therefore they do not want Pakistan to weaken its concentration of forces in the Afghan border to strengthen the forces on the Indian border and with this object in view, they are pressurizing India to go slow against Pakistan.

British Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, who visited India has pointed his finger at the Kashmir issue as the root cause of Pakistani terrorism. How could India trust these foreign powers which run with the hare and hunt with hound to solve the problem of security threat to our nation? And for Britain which master-minded the partition of our country, a divided and truncated India in the Asian continent continues to be a necessity.

Aggressive Posture of Pak

Amidst international efforts to tone down the rising tension between India and Pakistan, religious groups in Pakistan have decreed that ‘Jihad’ or the ‘holy war’ would become mandatory for every citizen of Pakistan if India wages a war. According to a ‘fatwa’ issued by an all parties’ conference, “Jihad will be mandatory for the Pakistani nation in case India attacks the country,” the Daily Times reported. The participants in the all party meeting also demanded the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) to issue a declaration condemning India. Expressing concern over the current political scenario, the joint communique opined that the two major political parties of the country should not create difficulties for each other, as it would worsen Pakistan’s current crises. The meet was attended by a number of noted religious scholars and heads of various religious and political parties, including the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, the Tehreek-e-Insaaf, the Sunni Tehrik, the Mustafai Tehrik, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan, the Minhajul Quran, the Nizam-e-Mustafa Party and the Jamaat Ahle Sunnat. (ANI)

Jaish-e-Mohammed founder and top terrorist Maulana Masood Azhar has been placed under “house arrest” as international pressure mounted on Pakistan to act against the “non-state actors” in the aftermath of Mumbai attacks. However, Islamabad rejected India’s demand to hand over the JeM founder along with two 1993 Bombay blasts accused—dons Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon. Sources in Islamabad have also pointed out that no action would be taken against Masood unless India provides “concrete evidence” of his involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks. Unfazed by arrests in raids under American pressure, Lashkar-e-Toiba coordinator says to the Washington Times in Lahore that the raids and arrests will not cripple the group’s activities and it has thousands of members. “We’re still well organized and active”.

Pakistan has deployed several army brigades along the Indo-Pak Border sparking concern in the Indian Armed Forces. The forces have been withdrawn from Pakistan’s troubled north-western tribal belt where they were battling Taliban to put pressure on the US.

Helplessness of Indian Government

Right from day one of the Mumbai attack, the Indian leaders have been expressing their inability or unwillingness to take strong action against the aggressor. Prime Minister Manmohan, immediately after the attack, invited the Chief of ISI to come to Delhi to participate in the investigation. What a wonderful idea of asking the very dacoit chief to apprehend the thieves! In spite of the confirmation of the role of Pakistan Government and its agencies, ISI and LeT, in the Mumbai carnage, the Prime Minister rules out any military action against the aggressor. Home Minister P. Chidambaram goes one step further and appeals to Pakistan, “What we now want is cast iron guarantees that no state actors or non-state ones will be allowed to use Pakistani soil or sources to launch an attack on India”. What will India do if Pakistan repeats the act? He says, Pakistan will have to pay enormous price. Is there greater joke than this?

All the tall talk that India will directly apply force  and also appeal to world community to exert force on Pakistan to hand over the culprits for criminal prosecution has now withered into thin air. Pranab Mukherjee, External Affairs Minister, reacting to the statement of Pakistan Interior Ministry chief, Rehman Malik, about “arrests” of 124 leaders of groups like Jamaat-ud-Dawa—including its founder Hafeez Saeed—and shutting down of a few of its camps, indicated that Pakistani nationals could be tried in that country as well, if the trial was transparent. The criminal can prosecute himself! What a superb idea! When the media exposed the absolute cowardice and spinelessness of the Government, the External Affairs Minister came out with clarification that he meant only Pakistani terrorists to be tried in Pakistan and the Indian terrorists who have taken refuge in Pakistan must be handed over to India. Now he has gone back to the earlier demand that all the terrorists should be extradited to India. Should the people of India and the armed forces of the country continue to trust this week, impotent and vacillating political leaders and leave the fate of this nation in their corrupt hands?

Indian Army Must Rise to Crush Pak

As per reports of the US and European intelligence agencies, India’s lone carrier INS Viraat could be attacked by a hijacked helicopter or an aircraft. It should not come as a surprise that the lone aircraft carrier Viraat undergoing repairs at Kochi shipyard is a target of terrorists. The inputs and analysis of the recent Mumbai terror attack from the sea have brought out the fact that the Pakistan Navy and ISI trained over 500 volunteers in marine warfare and selected over 30 for sea borne terrorist attacks. Of the ten terrorists who came by boat, nine were killed and Ajmal Kasab is under police custody. There are still questions about the number of terrorists who landed on the coast. It is still not certain if some of the terrorists landed elsewhere along the coast and are waiting to strike at chosen assets including the carrier/port facilities at Kochi or even targets on the east coast. CISF that is tasked with the security of the port and also the Kochi ship yard was not aware of this till the media reported about the threat.

At this juncture it is the duty of the Armed forces to protect the safety and security of the nation without leaving the matter to the political decision of impotent leaders in power. It is very clear that those who are in power are at present more interested in protecting their own positions than the security of the nation. The fate of our great nation could not be left into their hands. The armed for
