Many may not aware of the Full Text of this act.

 

The Text of Article 370 of The Constitution of India, granting Special Powers to Jammu and Kashmir.

 

370. Temporary provisions with respect to the State of Jammu and Kashmir.

(1) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Constitution,—

(a) the provisions of article 238 shall not apply now in relation to the state of Jammu and Kashmir;
(b) the power of Parliament to make laws for the said state shall be limited to—
(i) those matters in the Union List and the Concurrent List which, in consultation with the Government of the State, are declared by the President to correspond to matters specified in the Instrument of Accession governing the accession of the State to theDominion of India as the matters with respect to which the Dominion Legislature may make laws for that State; and
(ii) such other matters in the said Lists as, with the concurrence of the Government of the State, the President may by order specify.

Explanation: For the purpose of this article, the Government of the State means the person for the time being recognized by the President on the recommendation of the Legislative Assembly of the State as the Sadr-i-Riyasat (now Governor) of Jammu and Kashmir, acting on the advice of the Council of Ministers of the State for the time being in office.[1][a]

Provided that the recommendation of the Constituent Assembly of the State referred to in clause (2) shall be necessary before the President issues such a notification.[2]

 

Jawahar Lal Nehru The handsome Harrow educated aristocrat who gave up a life of luxury to join the freedom movement. Babu’s choose heir and darling of the masses, he had a fatal flaw. He cared for personalities rather than issues and institutions, be it selection of Lord Mountbatten as the first Governor General of free India, retaining a senior British officer as the Commander-in-Chief of India Army or backing Sheikh Abdullah to the hilt – his choices were unfortunate. Finally the Chinese aggression of 1962 shattered his image of a world statesman.

Sardar Patel The Iron Man of India — silent, strong and pragmatic with a complete hold on congress party organization — rightly credited with creating a unified India by integrating 565 princely states in it — he would have included Kashmir also in it if allowed to do so by Nehru. The only blot on him was the insinuation that he failed to protect his beloved Bapu. The slur only hastened his end in Dec 1950.

Nehru’s promise that Article 370 was a temporary provision and will get eroded over a period of time has turned out to be a chimera.

Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah Charismatic Kashmiri leader who never let go of his dream of ruling an independent Kashmir even while masquerading as a secularist — architect of Article 370 along with Nehru. He must share with Nehru the grave consequences. Lion of Kashmir brought Nehru under his spell from 1938 onwards to the extent that in May 1947 when he was arrested by the Maharaja for sedition, Nehru represented Sheikh as his lawyer and was even arrested in Jun 1947 by the Maharaja while trying to enter J&K. Finally Nehru had to eat the humble pie by arresting Sheikh Abdullah for sedition on 9 Aug 1953.

Maharaja Hari Singh The Maharaja saw an opportunity at the end of British Raj to keep Kashmir as the Switzerland of the East. Trying to repeat history when his ancestors – Maharaja Gulab Singh and Ranbir Singh gained handsome dividends by keeping aloof during the Sikh War and Great Mutiny, Hari Singh tried to sign a standstill Agreement with India and Pak at the time of independence, Pakistan signed, India declined. Maharaja died a lonely man, forced to abdicate and exiled from his beloved land.

The Drama Unfolds

Having finalized the text of Article 370 with Sheikh Abdullah, Nehru brought in Gopalaswamy Ayyangar, IAS, as a minister without portfolio to help him deal with Kashmir portfolio and plead the case of Article 370 in the Constituent Assembly. Gopalaswamy Ayyangar had been prime minister of Kashmir for six years with Maharaja Hari Singh. When Sardar Patel expressed his misgivings, this is what Nehru had to say on Dec 27, 1947.

“Gopalaswamy Ayyangar has been especially asked to help in Kashmir matters. Both for this reason and because of his intimate knowledge and experience of Kashmir, he had to be given full latitude. I really do not know where the States Ministry (Sardar Patel’s ministry) comes into the picture except that it should be kept informed for the steps taken. All this was done at my instance and I do not propose to abdicate my functions in regard to matters for which I consider myself responsible. May I say that the manner of approach to Gopalaswamy was hardly in keeping with the courtesy due to a colleague.”

It speaks volumes of Patel’s loyalty to a colleague that despite his own and others misgivings, he managed to convince the members of Constituent Assembly and Congress Party Executive. But to V Shankar he said “Jawaharlal Royega”.

The Sardar thereupon resigned and the matter fell in Gandhiji’s lap to bring the two colleagues together. During this period, V Shankar, IAS was the personal secretary to Patel and had maintained a record of all events. It is clear from these records that Nehru finalized the draft of Article 370 alongwith Sheikh Abdullah without even informing Patel. Thereafter it fell to Gopalaswamy Ayyangar to get the draft passed in the Constituent Assembly discussions. The proposal was torn to pieces by the Constituent Assembly and also Congress Party Executive.

Nehru, who was abroad at the time, swallowed his pride and rang up Patel and requested him to get the Article 370 approved It speaks volumes of Patel’s loyalty to a colleague that despite his own and others misgivings, he managed to convince the members of Constituent Assembly and Congress Party Executive. But to V Shankar he said “Jawaharlal Royega”. V Shankar, in his record has described the meeting of the Congress Executive Committee “The meeting was one of the stormiest I have ever witnessed barring the party meeting which discussed the proposition relating to Rajaji becoming the first President of Indian Republic. The opinion in opposition to Gopalaswamy’s formula was forcefully and even militantly expressed and the issue even brought in the sovereignty of the Constituent Assembly to draw up the Constitution without being tied down to the apron-strings of the Kashmir State Constituent Assembly. In such a situation even Maulana Azad was shouted down.

The Party was in uproar. The Sardar had to plead that because of the international complications, a provisional approach alone could be made leaving the question of final relationship to be worked out according to the exigencies of the situation and mutual feelings and confidence that would have been by then created. Once the Sardar had taken charge, all opposition to the draft was silenced” And how Nehru responded to this great act of loyalty on part of Sardar? On 24 July 1952, after Sardar was no more, Nehru made a detailed statement on Kashmir in the Parliament on slow integration of Kashmir into India Union and mentioned that “Sardar Patel was all the time dealing with these matters.” Even Gopalaswami Ayyangar was dismayed at this blatant lie and mentioned to V Shankar “It is an ill return to the Sardar for the magnanimity he had shown in accepting Panditji’s point of view against his better judgment.”

Consequences of Article 370

Article 370 has been the biggest impediment to integration of J&K State into Indian Union. That it was incorporated in the Indian Constitution by the machination of two individuals – Shiekh Abdullah and Nehru is all the more regrettable. Nehru had to eat the humble pie when he had to arrest the Sheikh for his divisive and anti national stance on 8 Aug 1953 but he did not let go of his concept of keeping J&K a separate entity. In 1957, some top leaders of National Conference led by Mr Qasim split the party and formed a group called Democratic National Conference (DNC).

Article 370, included in the Constitution on a temporary provision should have been gradually abrogated. This has not happened in sixty years.

It had abrogation of Article 370 on its agenda. Nehru would not brook any opposition to his policy of keeping J&K a separate entity. He told the leaders that a new threat (China) is emerging and it is an inopportune time to raise this issue and forced them to drop their demand. Nehru thereafter decided to withdraw the Kashmir conspiracy case against Sheikh Abdullah. This case had been going on since May 21, 1958. The formal orders however were issued by Govt of India on 8 April 1964.

It is often forgotten that J&K state is not a homogeneous entity. Apart from Valley Muslims, Jammu has a predominantly Hindu population while Ladakh has a mix of Buddhist and Muslims. Then you have the Gujjars & Bakarwals. Why is Article 370 detrimental to the full integration of J&K state into Indian Union. Firstly the Central Govt can make laws only with concurrence of the State govt, practically giving it the Veto power. Article 352 and 360 for declaration of national and financial emergency respectively cannot be applied in Kashmir. While a citizen of India has only Indian citizenship, J&K citizens have two citizenships. Anti Defection Law is not applicable to J&K. No outsider can buy property in J&K state.

The beneficial laws such as Wealth Tax, Gift Tax & Urban Land Ceiling Act and intermarriage with other Indian nationals do not operate in J&K State. Even Article 356 under which President of India can impose his rule in any state cannot be enforced in J&K without consent of the Governor who himself is an appointee of the President. State of J&K can refuse building of any cantonment on any site or refuse to allot land for defence purposes.

Article 370, included in the Constitution on a temporary provision should have been gradually abrogated. This has not happened in sixty years. In fact whenever someone mentions this, vested interests raise an outcry that legitimate rights of Kashmiris are being trampled upon. Stated agenda of National Conference is return to pre 1953 status. Why should a state of Indian Union have a special status? It conveys a wrong signal not only to Kashmiris but also to the separatists, Pakistan and indeed the international community that J&K is still to become integral part of India, the sooner Article 370 is done away is better.

Narendra Modi Nostradamus ‘India To Be Bharat’ Spoof


# I heard from a member of a Facebook Community that the information on Modi and Nostradamus Predictions are a  Spoof.

 

I checked the web and landed with the information  that the information is indeed a Spoof.

 

Now a Days it is difficult to sift news and propaganda and paid News.

 

I try my best to provide correct news and at time it happens this way.

 

If I find corrections i publish it..

 

The Link.

 

Hope this too is not a Spoof!

 

Here below extracts of a spoof I wrote in 1999 for my Ferengi’s column of the Indian Express. Was it prophetic ? Only time will tell….

Michel de Nostre-Dame, better known as Nostradamus (1503-1566), was a famous French astrologer whose predictions – which included the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, or the premature death of the previous Pope – have proved infallibly accurate.

Last month, unpublished manuscripts of Nostrodamus have been discovered (and authentified) in an old trunk in the French city of Lyon. Curiously, there are two full pages, which deal at length with India, particularly with the Bharatiya Janata Party and the just concluded elections. We are giving here the first words in Latin, the language which he used, along with a rough translation in English .

“Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est vingtus unus centurus – Congressus oublium est …”

The Bharatiya Janata Party will come to dominate India in the beginning of the 21st century, as the Congress, will slowly sink into oblivion.

“Malheureusus, duo annum millenium trahisonus idealum est Congressus ressemblum, fautum adoptus est. Electionirium Blanca Madamus attaquum”…

Unfortunately, to achieve power, the BJP may gradually forsake most of its idealism and it will not address the real burning changes which India needs to adopt so as to become again a Great Power”.

And Nostradamus goes on to enumerate these changes :

Rewriting Indian History.

 

 

There was interesting Blog on Modi, the 2014 Indian Elections in April/May 2014.

 

This was posted on March 2013, 2013!

 

Normally I would not have missed this sort of News/Post.

 

Somehow I missed it.

 

Michel de Nostredame, one of the world’s most famous authors of prophecies, was born in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the south of France in December 1503.

 

He is most famous for his book “Les Propheties”, which consists of rhymed quatrains (4-line poems) grouped into sets of 100, called Centuries. Nostradamus is credited with predicting the French Revolution, the atom bomb, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

 

Translation of the relevant portions of the Nostradamus Predictions on BJP and Narendra Modi.

 

Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est vingtus unus centurus – Congressus oublium est …”
The Bharatiya Janata Party will come to dominate India in the 21st century, as the Congress, will slowly sink.
“Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus veni grandus est para Indus cognisant Indica tum est… ”

 

The BJP will represent the aspirations of the Hindus, the overwhelming majority of India.

He goes on to explain who are the Hindus: “Indus terrum nostrum grandus homo manus onum unus familium planetum est.

 

Indicus pax pacis terra est ferrum tempus…”

 

They will be the most tolerant people, even in the Age of Iron, because they will still accept that God may manifest Himself at different times under different names, using different scriptures.

 

Nostradamus on Narendra Modi.Image.jpg.

Nostradamus on Narendra Modi.

 

Hence all persecuted people throughout the ages, will always found refuge in India, where they will practice their religion in peace.

 

Then Nostradamus makes his first prediction: “Indus cursum est trahisum nostrum est… Politicum Bharatus Indicus trahisum est…”

 

But the curse of the Hindus will always be disunity and they will betray each other to the enemy again and again.

 

Next, another prophecy: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus tri pillarus est, Vajpayum, Advanum persistum est et Narendrum Modum. Vajpayum emergum est…”

 

The BJP will have three pillars: AB Vajpayee, LK Advani and Narendra Modi.

 

Eventually, Vajpayee will no longer have an active life, Advani will persist and Narendra Modi will be emerging.

He goes on: Narendrum Modum supremus chefum, ironus manus est et economicum grandum est…”

 

Narendra Modi will raise himself as a national figure, not only because he is an iron man, but also because he has made of his state a model of economic efficiency.

Then comes another forecast,: “Duo millenum novo treizus, Jesus Christum postum, Advanum racontum narrates est Narendrum Modum grandus princeps est et Modum dux ducis rector est, sixtum legatus est…

 

” Mr Advani will oppose Narendra Modi as BJP’s, Prime Ministerial candidate, but still the BJP will win the elections.

 

Nostradamus is not done, but thezre he may have got it wrong: “Congressus, corruptianum est,duo millennium terzus tombum est”.

 

“The Congress Government will be riddled with so many corruption scandals, that it may fall before 2014”

 

And, he goes on: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus prnonuncio Ramum templum et Christanium consto est et gurum defendo est, kashmirum macto est…”

 

 

The BJP will also make it known that it will build the Ram Mandir, protect temples, stop conversions and keep Kashmir for India.

 

Michel has also some forecast about foreign policy: “Chinum pugna est, Tibetum sanctum est, proctectiorum, amen ;

 

pakistanus attakum est et ereptor latrunculus iugolo, caido.”
The BJP will reaffirm its commitment to eastern states (he probably meant Arunachal Pradesh), stand-up to China’s bullying, and support Tibet to counteract Beijing which is propping-up Maoist Nepal. It will swiftly punish Pakistan next time it attacks India by proxy.

 

 

However, added Senor Nostradamus: “Politicus Bharatus Janatus Indicus comes, comitus amicus desertus est congressus victis .”

 

Only if the BJP stands true to the aspirations of its Hindu voters, it can come on its own at the Center.

 

Why? “Independantum Blancum copium est; necessarus changum indianus cumum facus est”…

 

As India has heavily borrowed from the White Man (British?) at Independence, it will become necessary to “Indianise” the nation so that it may manifest again its true unique soul.

 

What is it? “Lex legis mutation, presidentum auctorita dato est, confuto desisto lex legis…”

 

Introduce a common civil code, repeal false laws (article 370?), reform the Judiciary, change to a Parliamentary system, which will give true powers to the President who can nominate a Prime Minister from the majority.

 

Nostradamus goes on to explain why these changes are important:

 

“Congressus niveus domina regnus, Indicus forcus inmicus est. Maurus, Christianus presentum est.”

 

Under the reign of the White lady (Sonia Gandhi?) forces inimical to India have crept in.

 

Madrasas have sprung up everywhere and so have churches that are converting by the thousands, Hindus gurus are jailed and mocked at…

 

 

Finally, Nostradamus has these concluding words: “Lentamentus, Indica Indus solvo eripio licens et quidnam et politus falsus, Dharmus popularus est. Srious Ravous Shankarous pranayamous, et novus spiritualitus ex religus planetum estblishum est”.
What was non-acceptable today will become politically correct tomorrow and Hindus will rule themselves again and reestablish Dharma in India.
“Scienta, garnutas, conscienta va do incedo totus el mundus rulus est, paxus, harmonius est.”
And the knowledge which was preserved in India for millenniums will spread in the world and bring peace, happiness and Harmony to All”.

 

Though much depends on the interpretation of the Latin Text, what distinguishes this prophecy is that it has been published nearly one year before the

elections, normally these type of predictions are made after the incident.

 

One thing struck me as original.

 

“But the curse of the Hindus will always be disunity and they will betray each other to the enemy again and again’

 

Consolation.

 

Narendra Modi’s Fist name is that of Swami Vivekananda!

Kargil War Story, ‘Setting Up Zoo Priority’ Over Surveillance


What the Government of India and the Army tried to hush up is open .

 

Not only the ground intelligence of the impending attack by Pakistan and the intrusion of Pakistani  Irregulars into India, the Army was busy organizing

a Zoo, vetoing Air Surveillance!

 

VK Singh praises Musharaff

VK Singh Comments on Musharraf

 

Equal measure of responsibility by the then Political Masters who wanted to play to the International Gallery.

 

While it is reported that the Army tried to destroy the Documents relating to Kargil War, the Congress, in the opposition then made a cursory

noise,possibly a reciprocal arrangement for BJP not putting up adequate pressure on Security issues.

 

And note the Candidates being put up by the Congress against Modi!

 

Viva La Democracy!

 

Story:

 

“Establishment India and its non-official spokespersons insist, despite a string of media exposes, that there were no institutional military failures in the months before the war. Over the last 14 months, the most damning pieces of evidence of such failur es have been discredited and suppressed. Claims that Brigadier Surinder Singh, the then Commander of the 121 Brigade, warned of possible conflict have been flatly rejected by officials as untrue. ..

 

The documents also show that his superiors, including former Chief of the Army Staff V.P. Malik, refused to act on these warnings, and even blocked 121 Brigade initiatives to defend Kargil more intensively. Wh ile the broad contents of the 121 Brigade papers have figured in several publications, including Frontline, this is the first time the original documents have been acquired and made available to the public.

WHAT MALIK WAS TOLD

On August 25, 1998, Major R.K. Dwivedi, the Brigade-Major of the 121 Brigade, sent out a letter marked 124/GSD/Vis. To this letter were attached the contents of Surinder Singh’s proposed briefing of Malik on the security situation in Kargil, scheduled to take place during the Chief of the Army Staff’s visit to Kargil the following month. The 42-point document was, during the final presentation, backed by slides.

Right at the outset, the 121 Brigade briefing paper analysed, in terse military shorthand, the possible “En(emy) Pattern” for the coming months. Pakistan, paragraph 5(a) noted, would seek to keep conflict “alive after (the Pokhran-II) nuc(lear) blasts an d in view (of the) SAARC m(ee)t(in)g of 29 Jul(y) 98 and now for (the) NAM m(ee)t(in)g.”..

3 Division took the best part of a fortnight to get back to this letter. Major V.K. Chattre, General Staff Officer 2 to the officiating Colonel General Staff, wasted few words. “Your proposal is not approved,” letter 1124/Trg flatly said. 15 Corps Headqu arters in Srinagar, at that time in charge of the 3 Infantry Division, did not see fit to intervene in the debate. Requests for additional troops were not even graced with a reply. One letter generated by the 121 Brigade’s Major R.K. Dwivedi, on behalf o f Surinder Singh, marked 101/GS(Ops)/ANE, pointed to a recent mine explosion on the highway, and underlined the need for troops to protect the road and vulnerable villages. No troops were deployed. Indeed, despite the 121 Brigade’s protests, the 9 Mahar Regiment was actually withdrawn, leaving the Yaldor area wide open.

FIVE HUNDRED IRREGULARS, AND A ZOO

Nothing better illustrates the space between the worlds of 3 Division Headquarters and the 121 Brigade than two letters that form part of the papers Frontline’s investigation has unearthed.

On May 16, 1998, 3 Division sent out instructions to all its field units informing them of their commanding officer, Major-General V.S. Budhwar’s new pet project: building a zoo for the sake of Leh‘s few thousand residents. Lieutenant-Colonel U.K. Singh sent out a second missive, marked 6361/9/ZOO/Q1 on June 8, 1998. “Please ensure,” the Colonel’s letter read, “that various types of wild animals/birds are procured and despatched to zoo at Leh at your earliest.” “Cages required for transportation of anim als/birds,” it continued, “will be made under arrangements of respective b(riga)de(s).” “No representation,” the Colonel concluded sternly, “will be entertained.”

Crimea For Russia US Action Illegal


There is a lot of talk about the Occupation of Crimea by Russia and the referendum in Crimea to join The Russian Federation.

The West, led by, as usual by the US, followed ardently by the Third World Countries, have joined the Chorus and threaten the Russian Federation with Economic Sanctions and ostracizing of Russia.

“You just don’t, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext”, he pontificated on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”_John Kerry, US Secretary of State

 

Who invaded Kuwait and Iraq?

I had a call from my grandson in Sweden and we got to talking about Crimea issue.

In tune with the common perception he expressed his opinion that Russia must leave Crimea.

Such is the disinformation by the Media that the History of Crimea is swept under the carpet.

Loot any hotspot of Terrorism or Territorial issues, you shall find Britain being the culprit for the present confusion.

Palestine,Sri Lanka,India,Pakistan.

They occupied these lands and when the conditions became too hot for them to handle, they complicated the issue by playing both sides of the coin and left the place in a mess to be sort out by what remained of a Country.

Before the Vote in the UN  for granting Statehood to the Jews, while leaving Palestine, Britain promised both the Arabs and the Jews Palestine!

Today none can sort the Palestine issue and in the process we have millions of Stateless people in Palestine.

In Srilanka they played the same game with the Tamils and the Sinhalese on the one hand and on the other among the Tamils of the North,of Estate workers and Muslims.

We know what has happened in Lanka and what is happening now.

India , a double game was played by inciting Jinnah and the animosity between India and Pakistan shows no signs of abating.

In Crimea they have done the same thing.

The history of the Crimean peninsula covers more than 2,000 years, with many different conquerors and settlers throughout time. In ancient times, it was the home of Cimmerians and Scythians, as well as the site of Greek colonies. The most important city was Chersonesos at the edge of today’s Sevastopol. Later occupiers included the Romans, Goths, Huns, Bulgars, Khazars, the state of Kievan Rus’, the Byzantine Empire, the Kipchaks, and the Golden Horde. In the 13th century, portions were controlled by the Republic of Venice and by the Republic of Genoa.

The Crimean Khanate, a state ruled by Crimean Tatars and generally subject to the Ottoman Empire, succeeded the Golden Horde and lasted from 1441 to 1783. The Khanate was conquered by the Russian Empire under Catherine the Great in 1783. From 1853 to 1856, the peninsula was the site of the principal engagements of the Crimean War, a conflict fought between the Russian Empire and an alliance of the French Empire, the British Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Kingdom of Sardinia, and the Duchy of Nassau.

During the Russian Civil War, Crimea was controlled by the White Army. After they were defeated by the Red Army, Crimea became part of the Soviet Union in 1921 as Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. In the Second World War the peninsula was occupied by Nazi Germany for several years.

In 1954, it was transferred to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic within the Soviet Union. In 1991, it became part of independent Ukraine.

Crimea was once again a site of conflict in 2014, when the region reacted negatively to the Euromaidan revolution in Kiev and came under Russian Federation control. Ukraine continues to claim Crimea as an integral part of its territory.”

Britain’s Role in Crimean War.

 

Please check the British Archives on Crimea.

The Right to Sovereignty is based on three counts.

1.Those who have been living in the land for the most time.

2.In case of invasions, at the time of settlement, the one who has been occupying the place or if there is a contention with the one who happened to a winner in the War and,the one who held the place for a longer period of time, gets the land/Country.

3.As Democratic system has come into vogue, it is to be decided by a Referendum by the people of this country.

By the standard of having controlled Crimea more number of years after Romans nad Ottoman Empire, both are extinct now, Russia has the Right.

Most importantly the people of Crimea have voted for joining Russia.

“A fraction under 97% voted to cede to Russia, with a turnout of over 80% – an electoral enthusiasm of which Western governments could only dream.”

What is Illegal here?

The Illegality is with he US and those who nod with the US as if they have Parkinson’s for the their greed to get a foothold for Oil in Ukraine and other Territories nearby , including the Black sea.

Misinformation Genocide Modi Begins In Web


Suddenly articles have started appearing in web sites attacking Narendra Modi in the Internet  by way of Blogs, and mostly paid views.

qz.com has come with a blistering attack on Modi by Thane Richard, the founder of the Dabba, an independent digital radio station covering Indian culture and politics. He is also a co-founder of Jaunt, a journalism startup.

The article starts with a misleading Photo byline ‘Economic development should not change your morals. Reuters/Mansi Thapliyal’ .implying that the story is by Reuters.

NNarendra Modi and Godhra

Modi and Godhra Riots,in the image at qz.com the name of author is below the picture misleading that it is a Reuters story

I could not find anything in Reuters site.

Read some Gems.

 

“Even if Narendra Modi was involved in the Gujarat riots, I don’t care. His economic work wins out. I will vote for him.”

 

The point is not even whether you think Modi is better than Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, or any other potential prime minister.

 

“The government estimated, according to the BBC, that “790 Muslims and 254 Hindus were killed, 223 more people reported missing and another 2,500 injured.

 

” Those are facts, regardless of whether you think Modi was involved. Here comes the test: if you believe he was behind the riots—behind “genocide”—then Gujarat’s economic growth rate does not matter. Rather, it shouldn’t matter.


What matters here is where you draw the moral line between what is acceptable in a politician and what is a deal breaker.”

 

 “If Modi came out and said women should not be allowed to vote, or that the caste system should be formally reinstated, or that he supported ethnic cleansing, then it wouldn’t really matter what his stance on taxation is.”
If I were starving or my family were starving, I might not care about the costs attached to keeping them alive or to electing a person who promised to put bread on my table.
While India certainly has enormous need, those are not exclusively the pockets that support Modi.
The woman I spoke to was not starving. The political columnists of India’s newspapers are not starving.
Anyone reading this article on this website is not starving.
Obsession with the promised economic wizardry of Modi is not selfless patriotism for India’s advance, it is greed without regard for cost.”
1.Supreme Court of India on Modi and Gujarat Riots.

In a big relief for Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, the Supreme Court-appointed SIT has given him a clean chit in the post-Godhra Gulberg massacre case and sought its closure as it found no evidence against him.”According to SIT, no offence has been established against any of the 58 persons listed in Zakia’s complaint,” metropolitan magistrate M S Bhatt said in his order on Tuesday on a batch of petitions in which Zakia Jafri, widow of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri who was among 69 persons killed in the Gulberg society carnage, had named Modi and 57 others for alleged criminal conspiracy in the 2002 riots.”

 

2.It is very convenient to say that X said this or that after a meeting with no corroboration.
A fictitious Indian in Detroit said what has been posted in the first para of this post!
What is supposed to have been said in 2012 is reproduced in 2014″
3.The post is written cleverly to pass off by juxtaposing the author’s words ‘Genocide, ethnic cleansing’ in  and around the BBC report  to authenticate this sheer non sense.
