The way all so-called Muslim Molvis are releasing their videos to save JAMATI's and attacking Police and media shows their thinking towards the nation. They are working as a human bomb. The new way they are trying that they are spreading it through currency. They are infecting the notes and trying to spread this virus into the community. They know if it spread in India for the third stage at least 60% population will affect. In the Mewat area, most of the fruit sellers are Muslims. They are sneezing and spiting on fruits and vegetables, That is really dangerous.

all dynasts, commies, naxals and caste based politicos are weeping tears of blood.

Modi must go. sickularism will never survive like this.

When Jan Dhan Yojana started in 2014, a lot of ppl mocked it saying poor don't use bank accounts. Today, within minutes, 7825 Cr was deposited in accounts of 15.65 Cr women. No middleman, no delays, no begging for approvals! That's the power of right intent & implementation.

from the same paper, in today's edition. :mrgreen:


A Bangalore based Tablighi Jamaat member has issued legal notices to five media outlets, including the BCCL, the parent body of Times of India and Times Now, demanding immediate withdrawal of a defamatory article that linked the Jamaat to terror outfits. The article published on the Times Now website on April 1, 2020, states that the Jamaat has ties with Pakistan based Harkat ul Mujahideen, al Qaeda and Lashkar e Taiba, among others.

Taking an exception to such an article Bangalore based HafeezullaKhan, through his lawyers Aslam Razvi and Arif Pasha of Prime Law Associates, sent legal notices to BCCL, Outlook, IANS, Prokerala (website), Daiji World (Kerala based website) and are also in the process of sending legal notices to New Indian Express and journalist S Gurumurthy.


Tablighi Jamaat - its other, evil side


Tablighi Jamaat - its other, evil side

Global security experts call it the antechamber of fundamentalism, claim it is used to nurse and indoctrinate terrorists.


03rd April 2020
By S Gurumurthy


Except intelligence officials, national security experts and the wary among police officials, not many Indians would have heard of the name Tablighi Jamaat [TJ] before the explosive Nizamuddin coronavirus episode gave it the publicity it studiously avoided. On the face of it, TJ’s six principles suggest Islamic piety in its extreme. But that is merely its cosmetic exterior, inviting the innocent and idealistic young Muslims into an ideological line that ultimately turns them as terrorists. The less known and dangerous side of the century-old TJ began unfolding the world over since 2001, but not in India.

Nursery and gateway to terror

“TJ is another system driver and integral element of Islamist Violent Non-State Actors’ internal dynamics; in many cases it has acted as nursery for indoctrinating Islamist terrorists,” writes Dr Farhan Zahid, a Pakistani counter-terrorism and security expert, in his analysis titled “Tablighi Jamaat and its links with terrorism” [Foreign Analysis March 2015 Centre Francais de Reserche Sur le Renseignement]. Dr Farhan says, TJ “in a way plays the role of recruiter and sympathiser [for terrorism]. TJ’s congregation allows radical elements worldwide to meet and discuss violent activities and provide them with the best opportunity to coordinate”. Adding “many of its followers have dual and overlapping membership with jihadist groups”, Dr Farhan cites references and says “TJ has now been considered as a ‘gateway to terrorism’.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vmtW3BicQg






Terror record in Europe, US

Dr Farhan says since 2001, traces of links have been found between TJ and Islamists involved in acts of terror. Shoe bomber Richard Reid who attempted a trans-Atlantic airline bombing [2001], Jose Padilla who tried dirty bomb manufacturing [2002] in New York city, Barcelona terror plot [2008] and the arrest of American Taliban John Walker in Afghanistan [2001] were all linked to TJ. Its French Muslim recruits were found involved in planning attacks by the Portland Seven and the Lackawanna Six in the US.In his analysis titled “Tablighi Jamaat: Jihad’s stealthy Legions” in Middle East Quarterly [Jan 8, 2016] Alex Alexiev writes that as 80 per cent of Islamist extremists have come from Tablighi ranks and the French intelligence calls TJ the ‘antechamber of fundamentalism’. In his investigative story titled “French Islamic group offers rich soil for militancy’ in The New York Times [April 29, 2005] Craig Smith lists Zacarias Moussaoui [charged in the US 9/11 terror]; Herve Djamel Loiseau, who died fleeing the 2001 American bombardment of Tora Bora in Afghanistan; Djamel Beghal, an admitted Al-Qaeda member, who was convicted in 2005 for plotting to blow up the US Embassy in Paris, as TJ terror activists of French origin. Freth Burton and Scott Stewart, writing in an analysis titled “Tablighi Jamaat: An Indirect Line to Terrorism” in the Stratfor Global Intelligence Security Weekly, say that 12 out of the 14 men arrested in a pre-emptive raid on a mosque in Barcelona for plotting to attack targets belonged to TJ, adding that TJ’s name figured in the 2005 London underground bombings in which 52 people died and also in the attempted bombings in London, Glasgow and Scotland. Assistant FBI Director [US] Michael Heimbach says that TJ has significant presence in the US, and Al-Qaeda was found to have recruited TJ adherents [New York Post Dec 27, 2015].

Turned Pak into terror hub

The book titled On The Abyss — Pakistan After the Coup [Harper Collins Publishers India 2000] authored mainly by Pakistani scholars, diplomats and writers, says that the largely Barelvi Islamic Pakistan, which accepted local variations, including Dargah worship and Sufi traditions, had been hijacked by Deobandi ideology through Tablighi Jamaat, the result of which was the growth of militancy. Khaled Ahmed, former diplomat and editor of Friday Times in Pakistan writes in On The Abyss: “Because of the rise of Deobandi militias…. the [Punjab] province is rapidly losing its Barelvi temperament.” What the authors had prophesied came true in the very next year when Pakistan was found involved in 9/11 attack on the US. Over the years, Pakistan has come to be known as the global terror hub. Says Dr Farhan, “Several mainstream Islamist violent non-state actors have taken their roots from TJ’s indoctrination and on the platform provided by TJ missionaries. It is the Deobandi ideology of TJ which provides potential jihadists a crucial link.”During the 1980s and 1990s, TJ became the recruiter of Islamist radicals for the Afghan war. Dr Farhan points out that Harkat-ul Jihad-al-Islami [HuJI] was formed by former TJ members Qari Saifullah Akhtar and Fazal ur Rahman Kalil along with others. From the HuJI platform emerged other jihadist outfits - Harkat-ul-Mujhahideen [HuM] Jaish-e-Mohammed [JeM], Sipah-e-Sahaba [SSP] and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi [LeJ]. All of them stand declared as terror outfits.

Terror merchant

An India Abroad News Service report on April 1, 2020 titled “Tablighi Jamaat shares links with terror outfits”, said: “As per WikiLeaks, some of the 9/11 al-Qaeda suspects detained by the US in Guantanamo Bay had stayed in the Tablighi Jamaat headquarters in Nizamuddin West, New Delhi, years ago. Tablighi Jamaat was also suspected to be involved in the burning of 59 Hindu kar sevaks in 2002 in Godhra, Gujarat, which led to mass communal rioting in the state. According to India’s intelligence and security expert, late B Raman, TJ in Pakistan and Bangladesh gained adverse attention for association with Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and members of the International Islamic Front formed by Osama bin Laden in 1998. Quoting Pakistani newspaper reports from the 1990s, Raman pointed out that the trained cadre of jihadi terrorist organisations like HuM obtained visas by posing as preachers of Tablighi Jamaat and went abroad to recruit young Muslims for terror training in Pakistan. Since millions of TJ proselytisers travel around the world, TJ also developed a large following in Chechnya and Dagestan areas of Russia, Somalia and other African countries. Raman wrote that intelligence agencies of these countries suspected that terror organisations based in Pakistan were using the cover of TJ preaching for creating sleeper cells in different countries. As a result, TJ was black-listed and its preachers denied visas.”
B Raman, one of the most brilliant R&AW officers, passed away in 2013.

In Sri Lanka, too

In a piece titled “The road to Sri Lanka Carnage” on Rediff.com, the well-known security analyst Praveen Swami linked Mohammad Muhsin Nilam, a Sri Lankan, to Zahran Hashim who was responsible for the Colombo bombings. Also known as Abu Shuraya, Nilam was killed in Raqqa, the ISIS capital. Nilam’s story is key to understanding the networks thought to be responsible for the carnage in Colombo. Swami says that Tablighi Jamaat had begun to grow roots among Sri Lankan Muslims from the early 21st century. Swami says, “Educated in Sharia law at Islamabad’s International Islamic University, an institution where Osama bin Laden’s mentor Abdullah Azzam once taught, Nilam had encountered with the Tablighi Jamaat. In 2011, when Nilam returned to his home in Kandy in Sri Lanka, he first worked as part-time Urdu instructor at Colombo University.

When he was principal of a school in Galewala, he played a key role in Zahran’s group. Then, in 2014, feigning to go on a pilgrimage with his six children, pregnant wife, and ageing parents, he took them to Turkey and disappeared across the border into Syria. He posted in his Facebook post: “We will kill every man, woman, child, Shia, Sunni, Zoroastrians, Kurds, Christians.” Nilam had recruited for ISIS 36 Sri Lankans, maybe 100, including his friend, Thauqeer Ahmed Thajudeen. Sri Lanka Thowheed Jamaat and Tablighi Jamaat have identical goals and their interests converge. Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaat is the mentor of Sri Lanka’s National Thowheed Jamaat, which delivered the bombs in Sri Lanka. There is no Thowheed Jamaat outside India and Sri Lanka.

Now, the climax

And now the climax, for the unwary. Where was this noble-looking evil born? India. Who founded it? Indian. Name? Maulana Mohammed Illyasi. When? In 1920s. Where is its global headquarters? Nizamuddin West Delhi! The place of its annual meet in which hundreds of Tablighis from Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, China and other coronavirus hotspots participated. The outbreak was astonishingly in control in India till Nizamuddin exploded as a grave and dangerous national threat. TJ with its headquarters in India now functions in some 80 countries with some 80 million adherents.

In a 173-page paper titled “Tablighi Jamaat: Wolf in sheep’s skin [Sept 9, 2018; released to media again after the Nizamuddin episode] Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, a Zionist and multi-award-winning anti-jihadist journalist and a counterterrorism specialist, unravels the massive following of JT and its terror connections the world over. Thousands of TJ teachers from within and outside assemble in India and that is what they did in Nizamuddin. Is it just to memorise the six noble principles or as Dr Farhan says “to discuss and coordinate terror activities”, will never be known in India, as no government has the guts to enter any mosque, thanks to the way secularism is understood in our politics.Unless this limit is breached and the menace is outlawed, innocent Muslims attracted by its cosmetic exterior of Koran cannot be saved from becoming carriers of Kalashnikovs and makers and throwers of lethal bombs. Let the courts decide whether TJ’s right to mentor terror in India also constitutes minority right, as is so far being understood.

A point of view.
China is a dictatorship that, for decades, enforced a one child per family policy under penalty of forced sterilization. But they can't close down the farmer's market from hell? #CoronaVirus #WetMarkets

For how long will we keep giving China a free pass? Saying that Covid 19 originated from China isn’t racism. It is a fact. Using Covid-19 to hate on Chinese is racism. But what’s wrong with calling it Wuhan Virus?

Bill Maher argues that China should be held responsible for allowing the conditions that scientists have long warned could lead to a pandemic.

when our mahatma leaders dont have the gall or intent or mood to state somethings obvious (except when its elex-time) as clearly as trump uncle often does, we'll have to anyway hope for someone else to state those on our behalf too. :(

Was reading a little bit about the Tablighis today. What I was pleasantly shocked with was the immense size of this organization across the world. Close to 80 million members worldwide in close to 200 countries. Formed in India as well as an offshoot of the the Deobandi movement and of course involve a significant chunk of its resources towards proselytization.

Quite a few known terrorists have stemmed from its ranks including Zacarias Moussaoui and the 7/7 London bombings. They are also huge communities in the millions existing in Bangladesh as well as Pakistan for which annual gatherings do happen. They have high links in Pakistan including to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. With that being said and being extremely well-established link all over India, it is no wonder that they have been huge threat I feel to not only the breach of the lockdown but in some aspect’s security of India as well.

There been multiple media reports aware the Maulana frankly refused to abide by government restrictions. In such a close congregation with members from all around the world descending on Nizamuddin, one may ask if they had any intention at all to initiate a form of biological warfare all around India.

The range and breadth of how these Tablighis spread out from his Nizamuddin to all parts of India including the Andaman Islands is pretty well-documented. It seems that there is no area of India where they have not travelled to. A few of them have even been picked up in Nepal as well.
There has been no overt terrorist attack in India for quite some time. However, with such large mass following in both Pakistan as well as Bangladesh and close connections to heads of the government in either states including intelligence services such as the ISI, is it not possible that the coronavirus is another form of jihad on the Kafir?

Something to think about? Funny enough, a similar event planned in Pakistan was completely called off and no congregation occurred.

no private lab agreed to test for free.

why pass unenforceable orders in the first place.

each pillar of democracy must act within its defined sovereignty and well delineated stamping grounds but not lose sight of the larger national picture.

In a democracy, the strict maintenance of domain hygiene is critical to its very survival and it facilitates the smooth and efficient intermeshing of the complete framework of the republic.

#SupremeCourt agrees to modify its order on free #Covid_19 test by Pvt labs.

It says Rs 4,500 fixed as fees can be charged from those not covered under the Ayushman Bharat scheme.

Govt labs are conducting it free for everyone.

the MAH pappus, father and son, have both been set up for the ceremonial slaughter like a set of fattened bakras that have been carefully prepared for id sacrifice.

It was truly a stealthily delivered halal cut where these pappus only knew their necks had been cut when they tried to move their heads and the heads fell off.

even their choices of the locality are significant: bandra and mumbra, where the sitting MLAs are both from their own coalition partners.




How Travellers Without Luggage In Bandra May Have Pushed Uddhav Thackeray’s Tenure As CM Into The Twilight Zone

Venu Gopal Narayanan

Apr 15, 2020,
The Congress blamed the police, temporarily forgetting that they were part of the government, and, that Maharashtra’s Home Minister was none other than their own coalition partner member, Anil Deshmukh of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Deshmukh blamed rumour mongers. His party blamed the administration. Siddique blamed the administration for not providing food to the purported migrants.

The BJP blamed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and his party, the Shiv Sena (SS). Everyone blamed Modi. Someone even blamed NGOs.

But no one admitted the truth: that this is what happens when ideologically opposing parties like the Congress, the NCP and the SS come together to form a government of deplorable convenience and administrative impracticability.

No one admitted that the congregation in Bandra appeared a little too spontaneous for digestion, coming as it did a few short hours after Modi made it explicitly clear that the lockdown would continue.

No one admitted that the abject brazenness on display in Bandra was not a congregation, but an implicit protest. For, sometime later, a similar incident was played out in Mumbra, where too, a huge crowd openly defied lockdown orders. There was even a twist in the tale.



Snapshot
The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the strain in the multi-party coalition in power in Maharashtra.

And now, it might be too late for Uddhav Thackeray to reconsider any part of it.


Sometime during the afternoon of 14 April, thousands of people claiming to be migrants congregated at a mosque near Bandra station in Central Mumbai, in the midst of a nation-wide lockdown.

They said they were following rumours that trains had started running again, and wished to return to their native lands. As it often happens, the crowd transformed into a mob, things got out of hand, and the police, risking exposure to the Wuhan Virus, had to eventually resort to multiple lathi charges to clear the area.

In the end, some sort of calm was achieved after Zeeshan Siddique, the local legislator, said the right words.

Almost immediately, the usual complaint boxes exploded in a frenzy of allegations. The Congress blamed the police, temporarily forgetting that they were part of the government, and, that Maharashtra’s Home Minister was none other than their own coalition partner member, Anil Deshmukh of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Deshmukh blamed rumour mongers. His party blamed the administration. Siddique blamed the administration for not providing food to the purported migrants.

The BJP blamed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and his party, the Shiv Sena (SS). Everyone blamed Modi. Someone even blamed NGOs.

But no one admitted the truth: that this is what happens when ideologically opposing parties like the Congress, the NCP and the SS come together to form a government of deplorable convenience and administrative impracticability.

No one admitted that the congregation in Bandra appeared a little too spontaneous for digestion, coming as it did a few short hours after Modi made it explicitly clear that the lockdown would continue.

No one admitted that the abject brazenness on display in Bandra was not a congregation, but an implicit protest. For, sometime later, a similar incident was played out in Mumbra, where too, a huge crowd openly defied lockdown orders. There was even a twist in the tale.

So, when a grave Uddhav Thackeray addressed a press meeting later in the evening, the irony of the moment could not have been greater.

He spoke in platitudes, like a child might to an infant, not touching here, not touching there, and avoiding the afternoon’s incidents like an epidemic, if not the plague.

And in his speaking, Thackeray showed why the will of the people is disregarded only at their own peril.

Placing the adharma of coalition dharma above public safety, especially during as grave a situation as a raging epidemic in Mumbai, speaks volumes about priorities. But that is where we are today in Maharashtra.

Now, this is not about whether Thackeray is capable of managing anything more complicated than a paper clip, or not.

This is also not about how visibly fazed and off-colour he looked, during his banality-ridden soliloquy masquerading as a press conference.

This is not about why he made no reference to the Bandra incident, until, with heavy reluctance, he was made to offer a desultory cross-bat to a straight delivery from a journalist.

This is not even about how India was sadly gifted a prime example, of why inherently-contradictory coalitions are administratively counter-productive, morally indefensible, and dangerously inept, especially in times of crisis.

No. This was simply about Uddhav Thackeray finally realising that he cannot have the cake and eat it too.

Unfortunately, he hasn’t just entered too far into a discombobulating twilight zone, but fallen into a rabbit hole of ‘Nehruvian-Secularist’ proportions as well, for there to be any hope of an unscathed return.

He cannot escape. Having gotten into bed with the secularists, there must he lie, even if it means putting the lives of our citizens at needless risk.

Why else would his government make such a meal of preventing these gatherings in Bandra and Mumbra?

What is so special about these protesters that make him turn a blind eye to their strident, adversarial defiance of lockdown protocols? The answers lie in the choices he made.

Sadly, it needn’t have been that way. For, as long as he was with the BJP, everything was just fine. When his father passed away, the BJP stood firmly by him to weather the leadership challenge posed by his cousin Raj Thackeray.

When India started rising above caste prejudices to ride the Modi wave, the BJP made sure that Thackeray and his party were given their due — even as the Shiv Sena’s vote share slid from election to election.

It was galling, it was grating, but the BJP kept their flock in check — at heavy organisational cost — so that this dynast wasn’t spooked.

But ambition grew quietly in him; rising, burning, unalloyed, which was fuelled each passing year, by the urgency of getting his ducks in a row, so that his own dreams, and his political bloodline, might be furthered.

And so the great betrayal of 2019 came to pass, when, without a care in the world, he stiffed his political partner and joined hands with the ‘enemy’.

The prima donna with a passion for photography was now Chief Minister of Maharashtra. And to Hades with piffling abstracts like morality and loyalty.

Yet, once on the outside, he learnt to his chagrin that the big bad world he’d been shielded from thus far — first by his father, and then by his partners, had discomfortingly turned on its head. Wrong became right, and night became light.

Thackeray quickly discovered that he had chosen poorly. Siding with the secularists didn’t just mean ideological compromise, but humiliating bargains as well, wherein zero-sum outcomes had to be borne by his party alone.

See how the Congress — past-masters at the game of courtly intrigue — made him sweat for every cabinet berth?

However, there was no getting around this, because on the other flank stood Sharad Pawar — easily India’s most canny politician, with the wealth of Croesus behind, an Atlas of a sugar lobby in front, and a man who could milk blood from a stone in his sleep.

No wonder that the NCP’s Jitendra Awhad, a minister in Thackeray’s cabinet, and, surprise, surprise, legislator for Mumbra, rages against the machine — even if he is running it.

The Thackeray scion was finally trapped in the twilight zone. And that is where he stands today, while Mumbai comes to terms with the true, horrific implications of many thousands having congregated for extended durations in Bandra and Mumbra.

There is no escape from here, and his coalition will not stand the test of time. That is guaranteed. It is only a question of the cost which will have to be borne by the residents of Maharashtra, until the present political dispensation collapses under the weight of its own, mutual exclusivities.


And the twist in the tale? The purported migrants, who allegedly congregated in purely spontaneous fashion at a closed Bandra railway station, to board trains which were not running, as per rumours which have not been traced, were not carrying their luggage.

Now why is that?

An again same incident like Indore happens in Muradabad(UP). These goons are not understanding that doctor and police is coming for their security and Health. The way they attacked the Doctor is very shameful. Doctors are really scared for Muslim areas now. I have a friend who is working for COVID 19. He told me that in the hospital no one is ready to go in Muslim areas.

TN to supply 5,450-ton rice to 2,895 mosques for Ramzan

Apr 16,2020
by IANS


The Tamil Nadu government will continue supply of 5,450 tonnes of free rice to 2,895 mosques in the state during the Ramzan fasting period, said a top government official.


Chennai: Speaking to reporters, Chief Secretary K. Shanmugam said the state has been providing 5,450 tonnes of rice free of cost to 2,895 mosques in the state for Ramzan so that gruel could be prepared and given to those who fast.

He said the government held meetings with the Muslim community leaders and said rice will be supplied in bulk to the mosques.

As there is lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus, Shanmugam said the government suggested to the Muslim community leaders that the mosques could repack the rice into smaller packs and deliver at homes.

Shanmugam said the community leaders have agreed to the proposal.

He said by March 19 the rice will be supplied to the mosques and they in turn will repack and deliver to the homes before March 22.

Chetakji, just wanted to say thanks on posting all of these fascinating insights from social media.

One thing that I've asked the team at India aware to do is to regularly follow everything on where and how the movements of the Tablighis are fast spreading across India. Also a lot of controversy over the last day being posted with regard to Babita Phogat calling out the Tablighis on their foolish acts.

I am no Zaira Wasim, I stand by what I said about Tablighi Jamaat: Babita Phogat defends controversial remarks against Islamic Sect

https://www.india-aware.com/latest/i-am ... amic-sect/
National Award-winning actor Zaira Wasim had played the role of Babita’s sister – Geeta – in “Dangal”, the biopic based on the life of Phogat sisters and their father Mahavir Singh Phogat, also a wrestler. Last year, she had announced her exit from Bollywood that triggered a huge debate.

Babita Phogat sparked a controversy after she linked coronavirus pandemic, which has infected over 13,000 in India and killed more than 400, to the Islamic sect with a controversial hashtag on Twitter in a recent post.

#SuspendBabitaPhogat trended on the microblogging site this morning as many users criticised her remarks. Some of her supporters, however, countered the trend with the hashtag- “#ISupportBabitaPhogat”.

Ms Phogat, who had joined the BJP last year and contested the national election from Haryana, also backed Kangana Ranaut’s sister – Rangoli Chandel – after her Twitter account was blocked over a post on the Islamic sect.

Centre moves to block opportunistic takeovers of Indian firms


18th April 2020

Jonathan Ananda

NEW DELHI: The Government of India has swiftly moved to block deep-pocketed Chinese entities from mounting opportunistic takeovers of vulnerable, pandemic-hit Indian firms. On Friday, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry moved a notification amending its Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy, making government approval mandatory for any investment from countries sharing a "land border" with India.

The notification comes soon after several sections of the industry warned the Centre that heavily capitalised Chinese entities and funds were shopping for vulnerable Indian companies laid low by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Centre's amendment seems clearly aimed at preventing such takeovers by Chinese entities, since out of the seven countries India shares a land border with, investments from Pakistan and Bangladesh already required government approval. Excluding China, the rest -- Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan and Myanmar -- are insignificant sources of FDI into India and aren't generally perceived as financial national security threats.

The earlier policy had allowed FDI through the automatic route in over 1,000 categories, except for 16 sectors including defence and telecom.

The newly amended policy now says that "an entity of a country which shares a land border with India, or where the beneficial owner of an investment into India is situated in… can invest only under the government route".

This condition shall also apply to the transfer of ownership of FDI, which "directly or indirectly" results in beneficial ownership falling to entities in one of these countries, said the notification.


The move comes after a series of developments and warnings from industry bodies to the Centre. For instance, March shareholding disclosures had revealed that the Chinese central bank now held a 1.01 per cent stake in one of India's biggest blue-chip financial firms: HDFC.

Palghar incident is such a horrifying attack on Hindu Saint. Maharashtra government has registered FIR but no Muslim name in FIR. if you will see the video one guy is clearly asking a Muslim man from running there. It was a preplanned attack on Hindus says VHP. All leftists had already planned this according to VHP. They have submitted there press release to Maharastra government. Junagadh Akhada are saying that they have no trust on home ministry of Maharashtra. They are asking for a CBI investigation. So-called secular are like Swara Bhaskar. Jeesan Ayub, Sonam Kapoor, and others are silent on this issue

Sharing VHP press release please have a look

Another Hindu' Sadhu got attacked in Punjab. This is right after the Palghar attacks as well. Not quite sure what is going on but one can read from some of the tweets that state that Punjab has one of the highest rates of Christian conversion. Not sure if there's any link here but the same was said about the Palghar incident as well. An extremely unfortunate turn of events. Christians who claim to always be persecuted, throughout history have been their biggest persecutors.
On another note, I am surprised that no other state apart from Uttar Pradesh has instituted some form of pension scheme. It is well time that such a scheme becomes implemented nationally. Also, it is time that they should be some kind of national run scheme for mandir's as well. State-level control it seems seems to be leading to more mismanagement of Mandir funds.

Saurabh, has taken a great interview on the Palghar case, have posted here for review ;

so, in addition to the assured food supply from India, they also want Indian medical personnel


PM Modi gets a SOS message from UAE for Indian healthcare personnel
PM Modi gets a SOS message from UAE for Indian healthcare personnel


The UAE, a federation of seven emirates with a population of less than 10 million people, has already reported 11,000 Covid-19 cases and has been adding an average of 500 patients every day.

Apr 28, 2020

The United Arab Emirates has requested the government to send Indian doctors and nurses to help the Emirates fight the Covid-19 pandemic, a senior government official said on Tuesday.

The UAE, a federation of seven emirates with a population of less than 10 million people, has already reported 11,000 Covid-19 cases and has been adding an average of 500 patients every day.

It relies heavily on foreign-educated doctors and paramedics including those from India to staff its hospitals.

Some of them were on leave when governments in Delhi and Abu Dhabi cancelled all commercial flights to stop the coronavirus diseases from spreading their respective countries.

“We have received two requests. One, to allow the healthcare providers who were travelling to India when commercial flights were cancelled to return to UAE to resume their duties,” a top government functionary told Hindustan Times.

The second, is permission to hire or avail the services of doctors and nurses for a shorter duration to tide over the immediate crisis.

“The requests are being considered of the government,” the official said.

Officials said Abu Dhabi had offered to send a special plane to fly the Indian healthcare professionals employed by its hospitals.

Considering the nature of the relationship between the two countries, the first request is likely to be processed first, another official said.

The request for additional doctors and paramedical staff, however, requires wider consultations within the government, the official said. The decision would be made after evaluating India’s requirements at this stage.

But the effort is to find a way out to help UAE at this crucial juncture.

Just a fortnight back, India had sent a 15-member team of military doctors and paramedics to Kuwait and promised to deploy more personnel should the need arise.

These gestures, a foreign ministry official said, should be seen against the backdrop of how ties between India and the Gulf countries had deepened over the last five-six years.

Right from the beginning of the NDA government’s first term, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his key advisers have invested diplomatic energy in improving ties with countries in West Asia, particularly Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, Bahrain, Qatar and Oman

In 2015, Narendra Modi was the first Indian PM to visit the UAE - also home to 3.4 million Indian workers - in over three decades. In all, the six Gulf countries - Saudi Arabia. Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Bahrain - have about 12.6 million Indians.

The personal relations started paying off within a few years when National Security Adviser Ajit Doval was able to persuade the Gulf countries to either push out anti-Indian elements or send them over to India.

It was a reflection of this high-octane diplomacy at work that Dubai handed over Dawood Ibrahim associate and 1993 Mumbai blasts accused, Mohammed Farooq and Saudi Arabia deported Lashkar-e-Taiba operative Habibur Rahman. In all, over a 100 wanted persons have been deported to India by the Gulf countries over the last six years. Last year, UAE allowed Indian agencies to fly out AgustaWestland case accused Rajiv Saxena and prominent aviation lobbyist Deepak Talwar in a special plane.

More recently, UAE made an exception for Indians when it started packing off foreign nationals from nearly every other country including Pakistan after the outbreak of coronavirus disease. Since state governments in India weren’t geared up to accommodate the Indian citizens abroad, the Indian government had requested to take care of them for some more time. India, on its part, had assured the Gulf countries that New Delhi would maintain uninterrupted supply of food and essential items from India.

Delhi Government with JIhadi Jamatis


Today I am going to give you a some kind of ground report on Delhi's situation. As you all know Haryana has closed all the borders that connected to Delhi. They are saying that people who are coming from Delhi are carrying Corona with them. Kejriwal is showing that he has created about 100 red zones. And showing that they are doing sanitization with Japan Machine. Actually, when we come on ground report, His government is an example of total failure. some people are saying he is doing sanitization with Dettol water. in this time also they are promoting themselves. His government gives permission to Jamatis. They stayed in Delhi and then went to different areas. Nuh(Mewat) a district of Haryana is full of Jamatis and they all come from Delhi only. That is why Haryana has closed the borders because Kejriwal is not able to control their Muslim friends. He announced a scheme that he is going to give a kit for poor people which include Oil, Surf, Soap, etc but it is on paper only. He is not sending Machines to the BJP MLA's areas and asking them to do it by themselves.


We have done an Interview of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha President Mr CP Kaushik on Jamatis, so sharing the link.

Big news Kejriwal allowed wine shops today in Delhi without any planning. It was without any discussion and plan. Yesterday he had a press conference and allowed people to go there. no one was following social distancing. In some areas, the queue was 3 to 4 Km. Center has clearly mentioned that the state has to take care of social distancing and all. But AAP MLA's are not even bothering to release their statements, They are blaming the center because police are under the central government. The whole country was in 40 days lockdown but they will make it useless. Even the main area of Markaz is allowed for wine shops. Sharing a video please have a look.

KEJRIWAL FREE AGENDA

Kejriwal is the first one who suggested to extend lockdown after 14 April. He was the only one who says that save lives we will save economy later. Now if you will see in his press conferences he is the only one who is crying on the economy. First, he raises taxes on wine 70%. And now he increase petrol diesel price for Delhi people. First, he is promoting freebies and now he is giving that burden to the middle class. He is not sending the workers to their states. He is unable to control the cases in Delhi. and without any plan, he opened wine shops. For that, he is blaming the Delhi police and the central government.
