Too much ho-haa and waste of "national" energy and time.

Personally, I think we ought to just "ignore" Pakistan. If we run into them at global fora, just say a polite "hi - bye", smile and move on. We ought to have invited others at SAARC and not Pakistan. We did the right thing by completely not mentioning Pakistan in a 15th August speech. I hope we can do the same at the UNGA whether Pakistan makes a big deal or not.

On the other hand if we do want to engage, then using "talks" as a chip is just churlish, childish and silly. Not worthy of a nation with aspirations at the high seat. In this case I would rather just keep talking endlessly but not going anywhere till Pakistan is just blue in the face.

When would  these Plestinians in Gazza strip accept that they are defeated minorities in Israel, so they cannot live or behave like conquring forefathers. If they continue to build militant groups and involve in violence they will only be at the leooser's end. Israel is a powerful, modern and proud nation. They are economically strong and politically stable too. For a long time in the history the communities who seek for peace and civilized lives suffered because kowledge and stability did not have enough weapons to pretect against berberic invasion. With the advancement modern military technology the beberism -- which mainly rely on muscle power are no longer compete with a community who are advanced by knowledge and technology. The uncivilized Muslims in Arabs must realize and accept that sooner than the later.

Koran, Islam and Islamists are clear about how Allah wants muslims to "deal" with infidels. There are various treatments prescribed , the severest being for people the infidel Hindus.

Do the infidels have a plan to "deal" with the Mohammadans ? That's the question that infidels from USA to Germany to India to China must ponder over.

Gond must be closer to Tamil than Kannada. MARAM  is the Tamil word for TREE. I had read a long time ago that Gondis worship Mother Earth as THARAI PENNU which in Tamil means exactly that : Earth woman. 

Reg the script or lack of it, TULU too does not have a script but is written in the script of the regional language where Tulu speaking reside. Interestingly, Vijayanagar founder - king Krishnadevaraya's mother tongue was Tulu, and he spoke of Telugu as his preferred language. 

Some stauch Dravidian ideologues name their sons/ or rename themselves after Ravana.

First of all, this fanatical Anand is a Christian masqurading as a Dalit.He should read history before he writes anything about Dalits and Ambedkar.Ambedkar was very vehement that Dalits should not get converted to either Islam or Chrstianity.That is how Ambedkar preferred Buddhism,a religion born in India.Will this fellow ever write on the subject of ill treatment of Dalit Christians in their own soceity?Dalits are made to sit in a separate section of the pew in churches and not along with the Upper Caste Christians.Dalits are not allowed to bury their dead in the common area of a cemetry.No Dalit is accepted as a priest by upper caste Christians.One has only to see the matrimonial columns where it is specific that alliance has to come only from non-dalit Christians.The list is long.As for the Muslims if this fellow Anand had read Indian history at the time of partition,he would know that Dalits were forcibly held back in Pakistan for them to do scavenging work for Muslims.In India Muslims have pushed Dalits to penury by not allowing them to prosper on piggery.Going back,it was the Hindu Maharaja of Kolhapur who financed Ambedkar to go to England to pursue his law degree,while the Nizam demanded that he convert as a Muslim to get financial assistance.This And is a shallow fellow and he writes all this nonsence at the behest of the Church.

A typical self-serving whine by a JNU jholawallah. You don't need a title and fancy perks to dissent or to lead.

Hostel messes in state run Indian universities don't serve beef or pork for a reason - they are expensive and difficult to provide on a daily basis in a subsidised manner. Vegetarian meals are a lot cheaper. If the Dalit students, most of whom are subsidized by the state in some way or the other, want beef on the menu, they should be willing to endure a steep hike in their mess bill. Of course, no one wants that, and any hike in the non-veg mess bills will be seen as a Brahminical conspiracy against Dalits by the likes of Ilaiah.

Over-reaction to an irritant

Editorial, The Hindu

The government has done itself no favours, as the decision is bound to add to the popularity of the separatist leaders in the Valley.

Diplomacy is not a limited overs cricket match. But by calling off the Foreign Secretary-level talks with Pakistan scheduled for August 25, the Narendra Modi government has behaved precisely as if it was that. For more than a decade now leaders of the secessionist Hurriyat have regularly met Pakistani diplomats stationed in India, as well as visiting leaders starting with General Pervez Musharraf when he came for the Agra summit in 2001. Such meetings that demonstrate Pakistan’s preference for the separatists are no doubt an irritant, but New Delhi’s usual practice had been to register an objection and move on, not letting the issue derail the dialogue process. Implicit in this approach was the realisation that engagement was the key to normalising relations with Islamabad. Also, there has been grudging acceptance on the Indian side that an India-Pakistan agreement on Kashmir needs the Hurriyat on board. For, while there is an elected government, the separatist leaders do carry a great deal of influence in the Valley on the larger political questions about the State. The Centre too has been in both official and secret talks with the Hurriyat leadership. In the light of this, the proper course would have been to express displeasure at the Pakistan High Commissioner’s invitation to the Hurriyat for consultations before the talks between the Foreign Secretaries. But to have cancelled the talks shows a shockingly inadequate grasp of history, and is short-sighted. India has called off engagement with Pakistan many times in the recent past for far more serious reasons, only to realise after each hiatus that there is no other alternative. The immediate question now is if the talks between Prime Minister Modi and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif will take place as planned on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in September.

The government has done itself no favours, as the decision is bound to add to the popularity of the separatist leaders in the Valley. Pakistan has described the cancellation as “a setback to the efforts by our leadership to promote good neighbourly relations” with India. Equally, it could prove to be a political setback for Mr. Sharif, who is already under siege. Opposition leader Imran Khan’s agitational politics have shaken the weak foundations of Pakistan’s civilian democracy. Adding to the brinkmanship are elements in the Pakistani security and political establishment that believe their Prime Minister is too soft towards India. The Modi government could only have further weakened Mr. Sharif’s position. That, in the long run, undermines the prospect of normalising India-Pakistan relations, more than the Pakistan High Commissioner’s meeting with Hurriyat leaders.

Prime Minister Modi Fumbles on Pakistan

By THE EDITORIAL BOARD, The New York Times.

India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, fumbled an early test of leadership this week when he canceled a high-level meeting with Pakistan. There are no two countries in the world that need to talk, and talk regularly, more than these nuclear-armed South Asian neighbors whose tensions must be carefully managed.

Mr. Modi raised expectations that he would work harder at resolving cross-border differences when he took the unorthodox step of inviting Pakistan’s prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, along with other regional leaders to his inauguration in May. The photo of the two men shaking hands came to symbolize the promise of that moment.

But that felicitous picture seemed a fading memory when, on Monday, India canceled foreign-secretary-level talks, which would have been the first in two years, that were scheduled to take place in Islamabad on Aug. 25. The proximate cause was India’s anger over a meeting that Pakistan’s ambassador to India held with a separatist leader from Kashmir, the disputed territory over which the two countries have fought three wars.

But there were other factors as well. Since Mr. Modi took office, violations of a 2003 cease-fire along the Line of Control, the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir, have grown more frequent, 30 by India’s count, 57 by Pakistan’s. Meanwhile, political rhetoric has grown more strident. In his toughest statement on Pakistan to date, Mr. Modi last week charged that Pakistan “has lost the strength to fight a conventional war but continues to engage in the proxy war of terrorism.” He even chose a politically charged venue for his remarks, the border town of Kargil, where the two sides fought in 1999.

Pakistan may not have helped matters by scheduling a meeting with the separatist leader from Kashmir before the talks with India, especially if, as Indian’s foreign ministry suggested, India was undertaking “serious initiatives to move bilateral ties forward.” Pakistan has had regular contact with Kashmiri separatist leaders over the years, and previous Indian prime ministers, including the last prime minister from Mr. Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, Atal Bihari Vajayee, lived with the practice.

A more plausible excuse is India’s mounting irritation with the border violations and the possibility that they could disrupt elections in Kashmir expected in October and November. These are unquestionably problems in a volatile region, and both sides are justified in calling for the shooting to stop. India also has legitimate concerns about the willingness of Pakistan, especially its army, to tolerate if not encourage anti-India attacks by extremist groups, like the 2008 bombing in Mumbai.

But canceling the meeting was an overreaction on India’s part, especially when it could have served as an opportunity to discuss grievances and press for a solution. Absent such an airing, there is a tendency on both sides to escalate the tensions, with the Indian news media emphasizing Mr. Modi’s willingness to take a tough stand and Pakistan asserting it was not “subservient” to India.

There will always be political excuses not to take risks. Both leaders have challenges at home, but Mr. Modi, who won a huge victory in the May election, is in the strongest political position, while Mr. Sharif is facing street protests led by politicians seeking his ouster.

What’s needed is a meeting between the leaders to establish a continuing dialogue. Next month’s United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York offers a good venue. It would be foolish and dangerous to let this episode destroy the chance for a more stable relationship.

How old is Muslim trait of duplicity and backstabbing in Indian context? The answer is obviously more than thousand year old but let's shed some light on Nehruvian/Moderate Muslim claim of "secular" Muslim  before partition.

Story of Master Tara Singh, sikh representative Shimla round table conference 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_Tara_Singh#Bad_relation_with_Muslims.2C_Akali_Dal_merges_with_Congress

The termination of services of five teachers of Khalsa College, Amritsar and the case of embezzlement of Gurdwara funds was considered a deliberate attempt by Sir Sikandar Hyatt Khan to undermine the strength of the Akalis in the province.

 Master Tara Singh's fears were further augmented by the Sikander-Jinnah Pact of October 1937. It was a development of great significance, according to which, all Muslim member of the Unionist party would join the Muslim league and would follow its policies in all India matters and would remain independent of Muslim league in the provincial matters.

The Sikander-Jinnah Pact led ultimately to sharp polarisation in the politics of Punjab. It changed the politics of Punjab because it afflicted shock to the Hindus and the Sikhs of the Punjab, who considered Sir Sikander, first as a Punjabi and then as a Muslim

####### They considered Sir Sikander first a Punjabi, then a Muslim? Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it and THEY DID PAY for this trust in a muslim heavily. Punjab suffered most in partition with rapes/looting common site. ######

Tara Singh fiercely argued against the demand of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the Muslim League to partition India, forcefully reiterating that such a move would irreparable hurt the Sikh community, which was scattered all over the province of Punjab without a majority in any district.

Tara Singh was especially infuriated at the prospect of Sikhs having to leave their most important political and holy sites in the Punjab, such as Nankana Sahib, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Faisalabad. The Muslim League wanted their majority districts as well from East Punjab such as Amritsar, Firozpur, Aliwal, Dharamkot, Faridkot, Sangroor, Gurdaspur, Mansa district, and Shariffpura.

Master Tara Singh was one of the first leaders to recognise that it would become impossible for Sikhs to continue living in what would become the new state of Pakistan.

#### Perils of living in minority in a Muslim society? That is what is in store for you eventually. Forced conversions, loot, rape.

To be fair, Tara Singh and the Sikhs DID learn fast after this. They ensured none of those scums remained in (East) Punjab after partition, amputated the cancerous organ with great pain. Today Punjab at least is free of any Muslim problem and is very prosperous thanks to the hardwork of millions of migrants from west Punjab. But a generation had to pay price for their folly of trusting Muslims.

That is why reading history is important! Don't repeat the same mistakes!

I knew that Outlook India will not show the true secularism in Kerala. And I didn't get disappointed either. The truth is, Hindus have no voice in Malapuram. Every Hindu family having girls get scared if their daughters are bit late. 

Being a comunist Historian I don't expect any truth from Mr. Gangadharan, who hates Hindus,. So no wonder why he praises the Mahpila violence as independent movements. One should ask why the Muslim population has increased tremendeously since 1930s? Did the author of this article bother to go through the English articles on Mahpila violence? My great grandmother said told me once that all the males from her uncle's family were butched and females were taken and converted into Islam. One can hear such stories from Hindus of North and Middle Kerala.

Somebody who says IUML is a secular party is saying moon is white and sun is dark. Outlook closed its ears and eyes who was behind Marad incidents. 8-10 innocent fishemen were hacked to death by IUML cadres, and under the infuence of state govt, the case against IUML weakened and killers free now. Selective secularism by a commie magazine. What else can I expect from this mag!

>>>> "Nirad Chaudhuri did not fabricate."

>> All hate pracharaks fabricate. 

In Anwaar's (and in ANY Muslim's world for that matter) world if there is an allegation against Islam of atrocities, destruction, mass killing, terrorism, mass rape of women to bread more muslims,, mass beheadings:

i) If it is claimed to have happened in past, it DID NOT happen, It is all hate propaganda by pracharak's

ii) If it has been claimed to have been a contemporary/recent event with strong evidence (like videos available), they are either a western conspiracy to malign Islam (9-11) or actions of misguided people who are in extremen minority.

What that means is, I repeat, there were no forced conversions and rapes but so many Muslims came in subcontinent (and now that has suddenly stopped somehow) and elsewhere, Iqbal/Jinnah were seculars but somehow suddenly Krapistan came, Kashmir was never about religion but a secession movement came and it just so happened that Pandits were kicked out, North India's temples were mostly ruins god knows how and CIA/jews destroyed the twin towers to malign the most peaceful religion of the world.

As for the future, they just can't wait for Islamic Caliphate to extend to more lands of infidels and can barely hide their glee in friday prayers. True moderate muslim qualities, Anwaar style, whose hallmark is lies, duplicity and doublespeak!

>>>> Iqbal was a hardcore communalist.

>>He never spread hatred against Hindus. He honored Ram in his poetry. His 'two nation theory', imagined in 1920's, was as vague and amorphous as the two nation theories of Lala Lajpat Rai and Madan Mohan Malaviya. Many believe it to be an idea of a Muslim nation within India, not a separate nation.

Following is an excerpt from Wikipedia, not some hate pracharak's diary:For the nation based on ideology of hate on our western front, Iqbal is source of inspiration of ideas of Pakistan. Your ability to lie seems unlimited, try it somewhere else.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakistan#Independence_and_modern_Pakistan

The All-India Muslim League rose to popularity in the late 1930s amid fears of under-representation and neglect of Muslims in politics. In his presidential address of 29 December 1930, Muhammad Iqbal called for "the formation of a consolidated North-West Indian Muslim State" consisting of Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Sind and Baluchistan.[45] Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, espoused the two-nation theory and led the Muslim League to adopt the Lahore Resolution of 1940, popularly known as the Pakistan Resolution

Calling off talks between India and Pakistan was a foregone conclusion.
Modi ji had decided about it amidst Pak's continuous shellings and firings during his visit to Kashmir.

Enough explosive material had gathered. Hurriyat leaders meeting with Pak's High Commissioner merely ignited the fire.

A huge tactonic shift in India's foreign policy towards Pakistan is going to take place.
India is closely following Imran Khan/Qadri's joint march from National assembly to Nawaz Sharif's home.

I suggest ,in the meanwhile,India's High commissioner in Pak,may send invites to separatists in Balochistan, Pakhtunistan and the most dangerous Jeay Sindh movement.

Lesson for Pak :

Being a woman in India is unsafe. Being a Muslim in India is even more unsafe. - Anwaar (#1)

That's why the Afghan chose to leave his home and stay in India. (The probability is that he is Muslim).

Unfortunately women in India whio feel unsafe have nowhere to go. Muslims in India have the option of migrating to the country created especially for them. Why don't they exercise that option if they feel unsafe in this country and would feel safer in Pakistan?

Of course, they could also migrate to northern Iraq, another safe haven for Muslims today.

On the auspicious occasion of our honorable ex-PM's birthday, Shri Rajiv Gandhi (Aug 20), lets relive the memories of his greatest contribution to Indian History which will remain sketched on our memories for years to come.

Let us salute the great soul who not only remained silent as a PM when an incident of "ethnic cleansing" was happening in Independent India but also rebuked Jagmohan, then Governor of Kashmir tried to warn him repeatedly about the escalating communal tensions which Rajiv's dear friend, Farooq Abdullah was engineering. For the entire duration of the massacre, Farooq, then CM of J&K was playing Golf somewhere in Europe. A very co-ordinated, beautifully executed chapter in history.

Lest we forget.

You pretend to be so knowledgeable! So please tell us how many Hindus were in government service during Mughal times.

You seem to be making rules as you go along! If feeling superior debars one from being Indian then all caste Hindus are not Indians! Why don't you stop making a fool of yourself?

This is false. Some Arabs may informally call a Muslim a "Hindu", but don't try to make it sound like an official designation! In any case in India we should know who is a Hindu and who is not a Hindu. Why do you want to make an issue out of it? Don't we already have enough problems?
