The media has misled us on the Adarsh scam!

An article by Carl H. Gomes on Vigil Online throws light on unknown truths about Adarsh Housing scam.

Now that the dust has settled and the stench (from the shit that hit the fan) has blown away, we can perhaps look at the Adarsh scam a little dispassionately. The media (both print and electronic) really went to town on this because there is nothing that the media loves better than to tear a person?s reputation to shreds and the truth be damned. If Armed Forces officers are involved, the ferocity of the attack is worse because they can in addition sully the uniform and the institution, since the politician and the bureaucrat are impervious. And as they say, “the bigger they are, the harder they fall!”

Adarsh Housing in South Mumbai

The ..housing for widows of the “martyrs” of Kargil? is a media creation because the scheme was never meant for them nor was the plot reserved in their name. No government, however magnanimous, would have allotted such a prohibitively expensive plot in a prime location to Kargil heroes or their widows. A more likely place would have been in the satellite town of Navi Mumbai, or in Nagpur or Nasik, where land is available aplenty. The project was never promoted as a housing project for the ..widows of Kargil?; but the Kargil conflict itself was used as a ploy to get the land transferred to the society with the active connivance of the Defence Estate Officers, one of who became a promoter. Because of its location on the boundary of defence land and was in the physical possession of the Army, it had no commercial potential for a civilian project. It was the brain child of Maj Gen AR Kumar, Area Cdr/GOC (1999-2000), when the Kargil war was in progress and his deputy Brig TK Kaul. Subsequently all Area Cdrs and Sub-area Cdrs from 2000 to 2010 have been allotted flats in the building as a quid pro quo apparently to buy their silence. The Navy had no role to play in giving clearances at that time but top naval brass were offered flats all the same as one of the promoters was a naval officer. They were probably offered the “right of first refusal” but refused to refuse the offer. The other lower ranked officers (including a Petty Officer) either got it courtesy of one or other of the promoters or they just got lucky. No one looks a gift horse in the mouth!

The Adarsh plot is not located in far away Yeotmal or Aurangabad but in tony South Bombay (So Bo, as it is called) where property prices are the highest in the world and there is little vacant land left. It is just a stone?s throw away from and in full view of the headquarters of the Maharashtra government, “Mantralaya”, the BMC Headquarters and the Headquarters of the GOC, M&G Area. The building did not come up surreptitiously but grew in stature under the benign gaze of the worthies who occupy these hallowed premises and had their blessings.

Ashok Chavan

The problems really started when the Revenue Minister (now Chief Minister) Ashok Chavan demanded 40% of the flats for civilians (read politicians and bureaucrats). A modest housing project of 6 floors slowly expanded to 31 floors to accommodate the swelling demand from these big wigs who high jacked the project and colluded with the builder to break every rule in the statute book with impunity. The building is a monument to deceit to all the people of Maharashtra/Mumbai/India and not just the Kargil heroes/widows, most of whom have already got houses in New Delhi in the Dwarka project. This project never had any link to ‘war veterans and/or widows of Kargil’ who were the invisible pawns in the game. We have only been compelled by the media to think that way. In fact, membership was restricted to Maharashtrians and those who could prove domicile in Maharashtra – so much so even the two former Army Chiefs did not just walk in – they had to get exemption from the highest levels of the government, even though this is not a government project.

Let us consider the following:

This is India, the country where the Armed Forces are just ‘use and throw? commodities like “curry patha”. This is Maharashtra which is one of the few states that does not have any sympathy or respect for the Armed Forces – the only state that charges the maximum taxes on goods sold through the CSD, including liquor. This is Mumbai which is the only city that does not exempt Armed Forces veterans from paying property tax on their houses even if it is ..self-occupied?.

The Govt could have selected a location where the land is cheaper and available in abundance like Navi Mumbai or also in places to which most of such heroes and widows would have belonged. It is hard to imagine a farmer from Haryana or a villager from Bihar wanting to stay in a tony area with the Ambanis as their neighbours – the Ambani residence SEAWIND is just next door.

The plot had CRZ restrictions due to which only a six-storied building could be officially built; thus, with 3 to 4 flats per floor, maximum 20 three bedroom flats – OR – not more than 30 two bed-room flats. would have come up.

This is a self financed scheme – not free houses. Their life-time savings (even if those martyrs had been alive) could not have enabled them to dream of possessing a house at the above location. The cost of land alone is in excess of Rs 60,000/- per sq. ft.

Heroes and widows of Kargil war number more than one thousand. Most of them have already been allotted flats in Dwarka in Delhi or in their own home states – and hence have no need for a second home. Besides, it is unthinkable that the Army would think of a welfare activity which could benefit just a small fraction of deserving personnel.

The Navy did not participate in the Kargil conflict yet there are several naval personnel amongst the members. The Air Force did participate but not one AF person is a member.

Security clearance from the Navy became an issue only in 2009 after the Navy was made responsible for coastal security in the wake of the 26/11 terrorist strike on Mumbai. The spot where the terrorists landed is only a few hundred metres up the road from Adarsh on Cuffe Parade. That is how the Navy raised a flag; but by that time the building was almost complete.

This was a scandal that was waiting to happen – it is neither the first, nor is it the last in an unending series of such scams that have dotted the Maharashtra landscape. Because of its location, Adarsh is very visible but it is just the tip of the iceberg; what of the innumerable Adarshes across the country which is driven by the greed of the rapacious builder-politician- bureaucrat nexus? The armed forces personnel, serving and retired are guilty by association and of impropriety and collusion. They will definitely face justice of one kind or another but will the politician and the bureaucrat be touched? We have seen what happens to them post 26/11.

Liar Rajdeep Sardesai

55% of Mumbai?s population of 15 million live in slums or on the streets while 13 % live in ownership flats. 70% of the rest live in one-room tenements, some of which are crumbling. In a scenario of such abject deprivation, Adarsh is a monument of shame. Let us not drag the names of Kargil heroes into this filth even by association, which the media (Arnab Goswami and Rajdeep Sardesai) insists on doing. I cannot ask retired officers to stop appearing on TV talk shows, but I wish they would because they make asses of themselves.

How the UPA robbed us of Rs2,80,795 crore

An excellent article by R Jagannathan appeared on DNA.

The number in the headline is the amount of money looted by the UPA government from taxpayers and investors since 2004. And all this is from just one sector: petroleum.
The only difference between a Ramalinga Raju, who raided Satyam’s cash chest to bankroll his infrastructure dreams, and the government, which dipped into public sector assets to finance its re-election, is this: Raju cannot legislate away his crimes. Government can.
Let’s go back to the first number: Rs2,80,795 crore. I owe this piece of info to my colleague Mayank Aggarwal, who had put in an RTI query to the ministry of petroleum and natural gas asking them how much money was transferred from profit-making oil companies to loss-making ones to fund the subsidisation of kerosene, cooking gas and diesel (among other things).
The answer he got was frightening. Between 2004-05 and 2009-10, the three most profitable oil and gas companies (ONGC, GAIL and Oil India) were summarily asked to hand over Rs1,12,592 crore to three loss-making oil marketing companies.
That’s nearly three times the current year’s central outlay for NREGA, the flagship social security scheme of the UPA. But even Rs1,12,592 crore wasn’t enough to staunch the bleeding of Indian Oil, BPCL and HPCL. Over and above the robbery of three profit-making oil companies, the government had to raid the taxpayer’s chest for another Rs1,68,203 crore over 2005-10 (paid through oil bonds) to ensure the marketing companies stayed afloat.
Now, let’s restate the full extent of the skullduggery. To ensure that oil prices did not rock its electoral boat, it transferred Rs1,12,592 crore from publicly-listed profit-makers to the loss-makers, but there’s a procedural complication here.

Politicians & Corruption

Cartoon Sourcehttp://lifesacomicstrip.blogspot.com/2009/09/politicians-and-money.html
The government itself owns majority stakes in these profit-makers, so the real extent of money transferred from private investors is equal only to the level of public shareholding in these companies.
Since the public shareholding is 25.86% in ONGC, 21.57% in Oil India and 42.18% in GAIL, private investors were cheated of Rs29,991 crore in the process. That’s their share of profits in ONGC, Oil India and GAIL that got transferred to the marketing companies. Investors in these three companies can approach Sebi and ask it to take action against the promoter (the government) for corporate misgovernance and misappropriation of shareholders funds.
To be sure, this is not a point that has not been made before. What we are now clear about is the exact extent of the government’s bad politico-economic decisions that investors and taxpayers finally ended up paying for.
Misgovernance and fraud is built into the public sector primarily because politicians use public assets for private ends, including financing their own re-election.
Let’s also remember, the Rs2,80,795 crore scandal is only the tip of the iceberg. If we add up the subsidies handed over to fertiliser companies, farmers and the Food Corporation of India (a substantial part of the grain mountain that is now being fed to rats), the losses will be truly stupendous.
The best thing the UPA did recently was thus to move towards oil price deregulation, but we are going to continue to pay for past follies. A case in point is the Direct Tax Code (DTC) that was recently cleared by the Union cabinet. Originally touted as a big deal for taxpayers, it has been reduced to a minor concession, thanks to past overspending.
The original idea behind the DTC was to move to a tax system that was transparent and easy to administer, but the UPA cannot afford it anymore. A mountain of work has, thus, yielded a mouse. After producing two draft codes for public discussion, finance minister Pranab Mukherjee has more or less opted for incrementalism rather than radical change.
The initial proposal was simple enough: give taxpayers a large dose of tax relief, lump all exemptions into one package, and make the tax system less complicated. If Mukherjee had stuck to that goal, taxpayers would have surrendered small reliefs here and there and gained big on tax slabs and choice of tax-free investment avenues. But now Mukherjee’s DTC is a pale shadow of its former self.
Under the original draft proposal, taxpayers in the higher brackets would have saved more, as the idea was that the lowest rate of 10% would cover incomes upto Rs10 lakh. The middle rate of 20% would apply to incomes in the Rs10-25 lakh bracket, and the top rate of 30% to incomes above Rs25 lakh. As things stand now, the tax-free bracket merely moves up from Rs1.6 lakh to Rs2 lakh.
The 10%, 20% and 30% brackets also shrink to Rs 2-5lakh, Rs5-10-lakh and Rs10 lakh plus.
This is incrementalism at its worst, and Pranab-da has missed a golden opportunity to empower taxpayers. Having robbed them in the past, he cannot play Robin Hood now.

Islamic clerics oppose women`s reservation

Not only certain political parties, but even some influential Islamic scholars and clerics are strongly opposed to the women`s reservation bill.

Their opposition seems to stem from the fact that such a provision will not only entitle but also encourage more and more Muslim women to take a plunge into politics, where it would not be possible for them to strictly adhere to the tenets of the Shariat.

Purdah & Muslim Women

Maulana Saeed-ur Rehman, principal of the Lucknow-based internationally renowned Nadwat-ul-Ulema seminary, told IANS: “It was un-Islamic for any Muslim woman to contest an election in a secular nation.”

“Muslim women could contest elections in theocratic Islamic states because they would have to necessarily remain in `purdah` while there was no such restriction in secular societies.”

Purdah & Muslim Women

The principal of the institution that remains a host to students from leading Islamic nations across the globe, contended Islam did not permit participation of women in people`s parliament simply because that would mean close interaction with men. “They could, however, join the proceedings of a parliament where there was ample provision for `purdah` and proper segregation of women,” he said.

Asked whether that would not lead to creating more illiteracy among Muslim women, he shot back: “Islam is not against education of women, but the idea is to let them acquire education but remain within the confines of their homes, as Islam clearly prescribes `purdah` for them and holds that they must look after their homes.”

City`s Naib Imam Maulana Khalid Rasheed, who also heads Lucknow`s oldest Islami seminary Firangi Mahal, feels otherwise. “There is nothing wrong about a Muslim women participating in active politics and contesting elections. After all, so many Muslim women have done well in politics”, he said.

“However, I am opposed to the women`s reservation bill as it was contradictory to the fundamental provisions of any democratic society,” he argued. “In fact, reservation within reservation was against the spirit of the Indian constitution,” he stressed.

Leading Shia cleric and scholar Maulana Kalbe Jawwad, however, believed in the line adopted by the Nadwa principal. Asked how an Islamic state like Iran allowed women to participate in various political activities, he replied: “Well, Iran does have women members of parliament, who go through the process of elections, but they strictly follow the `purdah` system.”

“Even when they sit in their parliament, they observe complete seclusion,” he said, adding this could not be possible in Indian parliament.”Any woman entering the electoral fray would have to go into lanes and bylanes, stand on dais and brush shoulders with men. How can Islam permit all that?” he asked.

Congress Playing power game through Appeasement of Minorities

Filed under: Congress,India,Indian Politics,Islam,Sonia Gandhi,UPA — thecandideye @ 6:00 AM
Tags: , , ,

For staying in power through appeasement of minorities, UPA government has applied Religion based preferential treatment in Education. This divisive policy has violated the principle of ‘Equal Opportunity’ in Education.

The glaring disparities are summarized below:-

1. Scheduled cast students, irrespective of their family income, have been receiving a meager annual lump sum grant at the rate of Rs.140/- for lower primary level, Rs.220/- for upper primary level, and Rs.330/- for the high school level.

2. Non SC/ST/BC children do not get any thing even if their family income is below poverty line.

3. In contrast the as per newly introduced plan of scholarships for minorities two students per minority family having income up to Rs One lakh per annum, shall be paid Rs.10, 000/- per year for each student. They have to possess an income certificate issued by Village Panchayat or similar source to support their claim.

4. Girls from minorities are entitled scholarship of Rs.3000/- at degree level, Rs.4000/- at post graduate level and Rs.5000/- for professional courses. In addition, they shall also receive stipend while preparing for competitive exams. No such facility is provided to girls from majority community.

5. In case of higher education for MBBS, PG and Research, The SC/ST students must get 60% marks and are allowed only Rs. 3960 per year (Rs 330/ per month). But by scoring only 50 percent marks at the degree level religion based minorities PG students get Rs 6550/ per year and the M.Phil, Ph. D, students get Rs 35,100 on yearly basis.

6. Non-minority students are subjected to additional discrimination while securing loans. They get loans at interest rates 12 to 14 percent, whereas minorities get loan at 3 percent per annum from the National Minority Development & Finance Corporation under the Union Ministry of Finance.

7. For starting a new business a young man from majority community may get loans from commercial banks at 15 to 18 percent interest rates, provided he is in position to arrange15 to 40 percent of the project cost from their private sources as ‘margin money.’ In contrast the minority youth have to put in only 5 percent as margin money and remaining 35 percent is advanced by the National Minority Development & Finance Corporation at 3 percent interest. Remaining 60 percent of finance is given by commercial banks at reduced rates of interest when compared to others.

8. By recognizing Madrassa certificates at par with the CBSE and the SSLC the UPA government has given a death blow to inculcating a scientific temper and unity of the country since it will promote a two society mindset.

This an open secret that minorities receive vast sums of money from abroad which are spent on building thousands of Mosques and Churches and engineering conversions. Such funds should have been utilized for improving education in these communities rather than penalizing the tax payers for subsidizing the educational projects for these communities.

If Congress was sincere in uplifting the educational facilities, then education should have been made available at nominal cost for all irrespective of religious and caste discriminations. Cost of books, stationary, fees and other educational necessities ought to have been reduced or subsidized for all long ago. For making up for the short fall educational loans should be available at nominal interest to all citizens.

It is unfortunate that for electoral gains Congress government has now divided poor Indian students into three categories:-

Preferred religious minorities with high financial assistance;

SCs and STs on a lower level; and,

Total exclusion of students from poor families of majority community.

The educated voters cannot and should not escape their responsibility to oppose this discriminatory act it and take it to a logical conclusion. Only a strong public reaction will stop today’s bogus secularists. The youth, particularly the College students who have the idealism, energy, maturity and drive for furthering the national cause should whole heartedly defeat the politicians responsible for such selfish and sister acts

Criticising GM crops may land you in jail

With the money received from Monsanto, our politicians are now very busy in passing a bill that will destroy the very purpose of this congress government being elected to power.To protect the basic rights of  its citizens.

Criticising Genetically Modified (GM) products could land you in jail — if the draconian draft Biotechnology Regulatory Authority Bill (BRAB) of 2009, which will be tabled in the current session of the parliament by the UPA government, is passed.

In an unprecedented muzzle on the right to freedom of speech of the citizen, Chapter 13 section 63 of the draft bill says, “Whoever, without any evidence or scientific record misleads the public about the safety of the organisms and products…shall be punished with imprisonment for a term that shall not be less than six months but which may extend to one year and with fine which may extend to two lakh rupees or with both.” The BRAI Bill drafted by the department of bio-technology under the Ministry of Science and Technology comes on the heels of a moratorium on Bt Brinjal announced by the Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh.

Monsanto Skull and Bones - The ghost supported by our ministers

“What they are doing is much worse than what Hitler or Mussolini did. Through this bill, they want to take absolute authority. They are behaving like a vendor instead of a regulator,” Pushpa M Bhargava, a member of the Supreme Court appointed Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) said.

There are also other provisions in this bill which are disconcerting.

Article 27 (1) of the bill seeks to keep the information related to the research, approval and science of the GM Products out of the purview of the Right to Information ( RTI) Act.

In other words, farmers, NGO’s and Environmental groups that have been on the forefront of the campaign against BT Brinjal and other genetically modified crops, can no longer obtain information about it.

Not only that, the three member experts of the Department of Biotechnology will override any existing legislation about GM technology in the states.

The draft bill also states that the BRAI will set up its own appellate tribunal which will have the jurisdiction to hear arguments on the issues concerning biotechnology. In case of any disputes, petitioners can only approach the Supreme Court of India.

“The BRAI bill is more draconian than what the nation faced during the Emergency ‘’ says Devinder Sharma, writer and Food Policy Analyst. “If the Bill was already in force, I would have been in jail.

Jairam Ramesh too would have been in jail for challenging the health and environmental claims of the company developing Bt Brinjal,” he said. The bill demonstrates the extraordinary hold the multinational companies have over the UPA government, he added. Kavitha Kurugunti of Kheti Virasat Mission said that this bill is just a way to silence the voices who are opposed to GM technology.

Our minsters are oblivious to the fact that the company Monsanto is the one which has caused enormous harm to the Americans by introducing slow poison seeds.Check out the documentary film – The world according to Monsanto

Azharuddin wants job reservation for Muslims!

Tags: , , , ,

Former Indian cricket captain turned Congress MP Mohammad Azharuddin Monday supported reservation of government jobs for the Muslims, saying it was necessary for their welfare.

‘Reservation is a must. I have raised this issue in parliament,’ Azharuddin told media persons while addressing a rally organised by a minority organisation here.

Azharuddin hoped the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime in New Delhi will ensure job reservation for the community.

The issue of job reservation for Muslims and other minorities has been occupying the political centrestage since the government made public the Ranganath Mishra Commission report which recommended that ten percent of government jobs be set aside for the Muslims and five percent for other minorities.

Azharuddin criticised West Bengal’s Left Front for acquiring land forcibly. ‘Most of the 27 percent Muslim population in the state depends on agriculture for sustenance. Why should land be snatched from them?’ he asked.

He appealed to the people to vote out the Left Front government. ‘What have you got from this state government? Nothing. There is no education, no jobs for you. Muslims should support the Congress which has always stood by the community. Has any other party done that?’ he asked.

The terror masters of Kerala

An article by Dr. Babu Suseelan

Most security and terror experts agree that the indifferent attitude of the Marxist government and the pro-jihadi policies of the Sonia government helped to furnish the stage set for the Mumbai jihadi massacre.

Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are the ideological, financial and training centers of the global Islamic terrorism. Now Dubai has joined the terrorists club. Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Al-Qaeda, and Laskhar-e-Toiba use Dubai for financing, recruiting and deploying jihadi terrorists against India. The Saudi ministries of Islamic affairs budgets billions of dollars for disseminating the “Word of Allah” throughout the world. The Saudi Religious Affairs Ministry finances thousands of mosques in Kerala and different parts of India. The Islamic goal is to abolish Indian Hindu culture and secular ethos and replace it with Islamo fascism.

Apostasy in Islam : Image Courtesy - http://www.bendib.com/

Thousands of Muslims from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Philippines, Somalia, and Sri Lanka are working in Dubai as labourers. They work below poverty level salaries and live in filthy labour camps. Pakistan jihadi recruiting agents and ISI target Muslims from Kerala with financial largesse. Recruited Muslims are sent to Pakistan for further indoctrination, and jihad terrorism training. Pakistan trained jihadis have penetrated every state in India. They have established a vast network of jihadis and additional training centers in different parts of India.

Dubai based Muslim businessmen use a complex financial money laundering web to provide infrastructure and financial support for the Islamic terror groups in Kerala.

Now, Kerala, the land of Sankaracharya has become a jihadi terror centre of India. Jihadis are running around with bombs and explosives targeting innocent people at will. Muslims in Kerala receive financial largesse from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and from Kerala Muslims settled in Dubai. They have established a vast and complex financial, religious, media, and educational networks in Kerala to propagate Islamic extremism and jihadist interests. Through numerous charitable organisations, business houses, news papers and television, jihadis have successfully recruited thousands of terrorists for the Islamic jihad against India.

New Age Islam Niqab in Europe : Image Courtesy - http://www.newageislam.org/

Thejas, a jihadi owned daily in Malayalam receives enormous amounts from Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Iran and Pakistan. Thejas is in the forefront in supporting Islamic terrorism against India. It is the mouthpiece for SIMI, PDP and NDF. These organisations are declared as terror outfits by security agencies. It’s most dangerous effect being its cultural, political, and intellectual influence in various fields.

Recent arrest of Soofia Madany, Thadianteavide Nassir, Umar Forooqi, Halim, Majeed Parambil, Tajudeen, Sabeer and Shuhoe and several jihadi terrorists reveal a complex system of material support they have received from Pakistan and Dubai. Jihadi terrorist groups pay through Thejas daily for Marxist intellectuals, phony social leaders, fake Human Rights groups for drafting and placing Op-Ed pieces, conducting outreach events, organising Press conferences, and arranging political party leaders visit to Dubai.

PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madany who was implicated in Coimbatore bomb blast case where 93 people were killed has defined their goal in one of his speech. The mischievous orator stated that “There was no way that Islamic society could compromise with Hindutva”. “Islam would prevail in India.” “There is no middle ground.” As a consequence he echoed Al-Qaeda in believing that only by purging secular influences and returning to “true Islam” could the Islamic world ever recover its past glory. His views and attitudes towards the Marxists are known as well. Yet the Marxist party made an unholy alliance with jihadi Madany and his Islamic party PDP. His wife Soofia Madany is now implicated in Kalamessari bus burning case, Ernakulum, Kozhikode and Bengaluru explosions and several bombing and arson cases.

For several years, the Congress government and the Marxist government have showed absolutely no desire for the investigation of several jihadis bombing in Kerala. When Madany was arrested and handedover to Tamil Nadu for Coimbatore bomb blast case, by the Marxist Chief Minister Nayannar, Jihadis hatched a plan to murder Nayanar. The Marxist and the Congress government refused to arrest and prosecute jihadis for the murder plan. The Congress and the Marxist governments stalled the investigation. The jihadis were whisked out of the country before they could be arrested. The Marxist government contented that their whereabouts are unknown.

Later in December 2009, Thadiantaveede Nassir was quickly whisked out of Bangladesh where he was planning bombing against American and Indian embassies in Bangladesh. He revealed jihadis involvement in Kalamassery bus hijacking and burning, Kzhikode bomb blast, Ernakulum explosion, bombing in Bengaluru and Mangalore. Most security and terror experts agree that the indifferent attitude of the Marxist government and the pro-jihadi policies of the Sonia government helped to furnish the stage set for the Mumbai jihadi massacre.

Islamic religious leaders who actively oppose Islamic extremists risk their lives. Witness the murder of Chekannur Maulavi and the lack of credible investigation of his murder.

There is a grand alliance among the Marxist party, jihadis and phony intellectuals and bogus secular activists. The Marxist government has allocated thousands of hectors of land for an Islamic University in Mallappuram. An Islamic Bank in Kerala is on its way. Government financés Islamic centres, Muslim academicians and the government also increased the Haj subsidy.

Financial experts suggest that vast sums of Pakistan printed counterfeit Indian currency have been found their way into the mosques, Islamic centres, real estate and Muslims businesses. The implications of this enormous amount of counterfeit Indian currency distribution are frightening. The Marxist and the Congress government authorities aided and abetted these jihadi culprits in their crime.

But it was only in the arrest of Tahadiantavide Nassir and the BJP ruled Karnataka police began prying into the web of terrorist bombing of Bengaluru, the magnitude of jihadi terrorism is recognised. With the money flowing in from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Dubai, one can expect more jihadi terrorism in Kerala. Jihad war is an Islamic enterprise that will be always be with us. For Muslims, jihad war is constant and it will not change. Its methods and delivery systems are changing. From Islamic swords and clubs now jihadist have changed their methods to plane hijacking, bus burning, pipe bombing, “Love Jihad”, chemical jihad, cyber jihad, and kidnapping.

There is a vast jihad support network in Kerala. Since the Marxist government and secular political parties are sleeping with the jihadist and the government provides support services, special reservation, free college education, many of the Muslims have little motivation to live peacefully with the majority.

Soon the Marxist government and the Congress party will discover that the jihadi demands they have nurtured would haunt them. Since the High Court has made several comments on terrorism and love jihad, the Marxist government find itself in a dangerous paradox. Although Chief Minister Achuthanandan has come to understand the need to sever all connections to jihad terror groups, he stands alone in their own pro-jihad party.

Now the Marxist government has arrested Soofia Madany, the ring leader in several jihadi terror incidents in Kerala and Karnataka. Nevertheless, the Marxist government has much to answer in their delay in investigating and arresting dangerous jihadi terrorists. The Marxists and the Congress party and pseudo secular elites have created the monster of jihadism in Kerala and exported it to neighbouring states. Now the monster has grown in an enormous size and the general public is in danger.

In addition to these new developments, there are additional ineptitudes of the Marxist government. One of these is the Marxist government’s tendency to limit police investigation. Even more importantly, the Marxist government sympathises with them and takes psychological comfort in letting jihad criminals escape to Saudi Arabia, Pakistan or Dubai.

In sum, there will be additional terrorist attacks in Kerala is a virtual certainty. The general public wants to enjoy life and retreat into private life, drink hot tea and watch television. They are taught to believe that the government can do marvelous things, provide safety and security to the public in countless and unlimited ways. It is time of that to stop, and there are several ways the peace loving majority has to take. First democracy does not mean only to participate in voting. They have to be active, rise up and challenge the despotic Marxist government colluding with criminals. Second thing is longer term, but equally vital. Be active in politics and elect only leaders with nationalist interest and proven track record. In doing so, we must remember, we are choosing our future.
