Only a few have made a Objective evaluation of the BJP loss in the bypolls.

To me the Loss in Rajasthan is significant.Sachin Pilot a decent bloke deserved a break and he did get one.

Pilot must continue to work on it and he will become a Power to reckon in Rajasthan.

Vasundhara had nothing to show in 9 months,the fact Vasundhara did nothing to expose Vadras land deals after promising action is one which exposes double speak.

In UP,Shah allowed the Yogi to over board and BJP paid a prise for it.

In Gujrat the vaccum showed up,nothing else.

Modi Govt has no role in the loss,the way Namo Allowed and ignored the way in which the campaign was done in UP ,requires a introspection.

Modi spoke of devlopment and nothing else,

We the people trusted in his ability to control Radicals in his Party,which Modi is guilty of ignoring there open Polarisation in UP.

(1) Just as it is in mutual interest of both Shiv Sena (SS) and BJP to continue the grand alliance or “Mahayuti”, it is mutually beneficial for the Congress and NCP to fight the Assembly election as alliance partners (2) If BJP leadership thinks that the Assembly poll in Maharashtra has provided an opportunity to it to convey to SS that BJP won’t henceforth accept SS as a big brother in the State, the Mahayuti may break. (2) In such a situation, NCP and Congress would possibly break their alliance too. (3) Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) would then become an important factor in as many as 40 to 50 Assembly constituencies and although it may not win more than 15 seats, it may be in a position to give enough trouble to number one party in each of these 40 to 50 constituencies. If all these parties (Congress, NCP, SS, BJP and MNS) contest on their own then I guess the next month’s Assembly election results may be surprisingly different than what were predicted just a weeks back (on the basis that Mahayuti of SS, BJP and other smaller parties as also the alliance of NCP-Congress would continue).(4) Though Shri Uddhav Thackeray has every right to have chief ministerial ambitions, his promise of a good government is as good as that of his political adversaries. We know that for almost twenty years (or perhaps more), Mumbai Municipal Corp. is controlled by Shiv Sena. But its affairs are very poorly managed. Infrastructure in this metropolitan city is in shambles. Widespread corruption and mismanagement are quite common and Municipal Corporation Council members have become fund raising avenue for the party. Of course, it is equally true that affairs of many other Municipal Corporations which are controlled by rival political parties are in a mess. (3) Hence my fear is that that the coterie of politicians and bureaucrats quite similar to the one which exists today will continue to be in control of the State administration and its finances, even after a new government of Shiv Sena–BJP comes to power. One wonders whether Maharashtra State will ever regain its status as No.1 State, which is the promise of Shri Thackeray.

(1) The by-election results are not unexpected results. (2) There is a clear lesson for BJP to be learnt from these by-elections. Division of votes in Uttar Pradesh may not always benefit BJP or for that matter any particular party. Earlier, we have seen such division helped BSP to form a government on its own and last year SP was the beneficiary. In Lok Sabha election, BJP was the largest beneficiary.(3) Thus, impact of division of votes is unpredictable and unexpected results may emerge. (4) What will happen in the coming Assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra is also now unclear.

Should non-muslims too join that band-wagon of lies ? Unfortunately many Hindus have . Let muslims and madrassas preach their history from the koranic perspective. Indians and Hindus in particular should stick with the facts and teach from the perspective of S Asians who suffered mass executions, carnage, expulsions, sold into slavery all over W Asia to Europe so much that cost of slaves plummeted from over-supply.

In a country that wears its secular credentials on its sleeve, madrassas should have been converted into regular schools long ago. Education should be secular and religion should not be part of the curriculum. 

Schools should be the places where secular values are imbibed. Madrassas, where admission is restricted to those belonging to the same religious group tend to reinforce the us versus them mentality.

Religious instruction can be imparted, if the parents so desire, through private tuitions.

As I've always said, a moderate Muslim is someone who is constrained by various reasons from engaging in armed Jihad.

Which is why some of them carry out propaganda on their behalf about how Islam is a religion of peace, how other religions are equally violent, and how Hindus' treatment of lower castes or Americans' treatment of slaves was no better than the treatment of Kafirs by Muslims. In other words, they will do everything to underplay, obfuscate, and divert attention from the gory and brutal aspects of Islam.

'''Come up with innovative ideas for relief: SC to J&K

The Supreme Court Monday turned the spotlight on the Jammu and Kashmir government’s efforts to rescue and rehabilitate those affected by the flood in the state, and asked the administration to think “out of the box” to accord immediate relief to the victims.

“A tragedy like this would need out of the box solutions. You (J&K government) need to come up with innovative ideas like a floating ATM for banking operations etc. We are sure the state is not short of funds or ideas, but you have to make everything available to the victims,” said a bench led by CJI R M Lodha.

The bench, also comprising Justices Kurian Joseph and Rohinton F Nariman, said authorities must ensure necessary supplies such as food, drinking water and medicine reach the last of the flood-hit victims with emphasis on their rehabilitation.''

Hurriayat and Maulvis say in Kashmir Pakistan send 80 Helicopters to rescue them. Muslim Terrorists are firing upon Rescur Boats of then Army.

‘Shouted for Azad Kashmir and laughed at it later’ ::  Pranav Kulkarni | Srinagar | Posted: September 16, 2014 1:21 am
 

On the night of September 12, responding to an SOS, a team of five Army personnel led by an officer launched a relief operation at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk, a separatist stronghold. Carrying out rescue work in the area needed recce and more importantly concealment of identity.
Dressed in civvies, the team began its operation at 2 am and worked till late in the evening on September 13. During the day-long exercise, the personnel witnessed firing at Army boats trying to ferry out stranded people to dry areas, and raised slogans of “Azad Kashmir” to maintain their cover even as they laughed at the rumours that Pakistan had sent 80 helicopters to help rescue operations.
“On the night of September 12, we received an SOS for two people. By 2 am, we were on our way. Knowing that it is a notorious area, we decided to conceal our identities. Dressed in civvies, we went in a Sumo vehicle. After crossing Gupkar, we realised that the vehicle could not go further. We did not have life jackets… and decided to swim… we waded through 800 metres,” said an Armyman involved in the operation.
At one point, the group found an abandoned wooden boat with no oars. Rowing the boat with their hands, the group reached Exchange Road adjacent to Lal Chowk at around 5 am. “There were four women and they did not have food or water. We had to ask our operation commander to send air support. We needed to be stationed at a height to receive the air support, and thus got on to one Dena Bank building,” the official said.
Considering the difficulty that the incoming helicopters might have in locating the team from amongst several others atop the houses, the group told their commander that they would “remove their shirts and stand in two groups — a few feet from each other — waving black clothes”.
“We sent the supplies, including some specific medicines. And with the peculiar arrangement that our men created on the top of the building, the helicopter located them easily,” said the operation commander. One of the flood-victims provided relief was an 84-year-old Kashmiri Pandit woman who was being looked after by a Muslim family.
After distributing the air-dropped aid, the group started rowing the wooden boat to return to its base. “At this time, two Army boats on routine rescue mission entered from south and were fired upon. We told the boats to retract and disengage. To row away from the scene, we navigated to a muhalla. Three Hurriyat men got onto our boat… they told us that Pakistan had sent a help of 80 rescue helicopters, which India denied.We went to a mosque. I told the maulavi to pray that the water recedes soon and peace prevails.The maulavi said that the tragedy has brought people of Kashmir together and prayed for Azad Kashmir… to remain under cover, we too shouted

It is you who ought to be ashamed. Either you are ignorant of facts or you lie brazenly in a manner that the late Goebbels would have thoroughly approved of.

I have never failed to express my admiration for Wajid Ali Shah and Dara Shikoh. I have always venerated Sufi saints and I enjoy reading Rumi. I have also talked of the egalitarianism of Islam and of the resurgence of the Bhakti movement due to the impact of Sufism.

As far as. "Hindu history" is concerned, nobody has denied any of the negative aspects, be it the hereditary caste system, sati or the superstitious and misogynistic aspects. It is essential to be aware of one's faults to eradicate them. Being in denial, or worse, being apologetic about them is not going to change anything.

"There is no way that the people who did this could be Muslim, and if they claim to be Muslim, then they have perverted their religion."

This same Imam was later found to have close links with the Al Qaeda and with the terrorists who executed 9/11.

.... Actuallly the argument is more to do with "Rotherham,UK" just google. BJP's argument might be crude but it has one...

Mr Fali Narsiman

Hindus have given you the answer in UP .Hindus have rejected Mahant AdiyaNath way of Politics and given 9 seats to SP .

So your theory of Hindus as becoming intolerant stands on its Head !!

But there is another message clearly sent by Muslims of the UP which you Mr Fali Nariman and other so called Seculars will not like to imbibe .But unfortunately you  can't to wish away  .

By Voting in hordes  for SP in Sharanpur specially in Gurudawara Assembly seat Muslims of UP have given the clear cut message that they have supported the Communal Politics of Irfan Masood an Congress member and Mahurram Ali the Muslims' Adiytanath .

So tell me sir -what is the incentive for Hindus not to be Polarized when Muslims still remain communally Polarized when there is no change in the mind set of the Muslims ????

For BJP the message is clear stick to Development Agenda .

" Also, BALANCING the history of any civilization necessarily includes the good and the evil."

How endearingly, dishonestly Nehruvian.

Let's do some balancing.

Let us start with the Jahiliyat civilisation of pre-Islamic Arabia, a period of darkness, lack of refinement, when women were treated like animals, we are told.

Yet, those "savages" spoke a highly evolved language which had poetry and literature. They built great cities, had a flourishing economy in which women also played a huge role. Khadija, the prophet's first wife, was actually a highly successful businesswoman who also happened to be his employer. There were large communities of Jews and Christians in that period which shows that the Jaahil Arabs were a tolerant people. 

How about some balancing of this era? Then, we shall talk of balancing other eras with unbalanced histories, the Nazis, the Khmer Rouges, the Conquistadors, the Stalinists....,,surely, they are not pure evil and those evil histories must be "balanced". Right, Mr. Anwaar?

Modi fought Lok Sabha election on development and good governance, while Congress and other parties  fought on religion. BJP thrashed most of them,  which proved that people wanted what Modi was offering. Now in UP BJP shifted to religion mode and results clearly tell us what public want.

" Nobody but a Hindutvawadi liar would question my pride in my Indian heritage."

With due respect, Anwaar bhai, your pride in your Indian heritage is limited to a narrow COMPOSITE CULTURE aka Ganga Jamuna tehzeeb, born in Awadh in the 18th century. Seems incongruous for a Gujarati, doesn't it, who probably does not know Urdu, like his role model, the Quaid-e-Azam, the secular leader who tore apart a nation by inflaming religious animosities.

Your pride in your heritage does not include the Vedic age when the human intellect reached its zenith.  Your heritage excludes the glorious Dravidian culture and you know nothing about the Pallavas and the Cholas.

You exult in the glory of the Ghaznis and Ghoris and Khiljis and Tughlaks and Mamluks. You believe that those who destroyed glorious monuments have "tremendously enriched" Indian culture.

I have every right to question the fallacious claims of a person who associates his ancestry, not with those who built glorious monuments but with those vandals who demolished them.

Someone introduce Saroja the cocky secular to Saroja the chameleon who shoots first and thinks later:

>> 198/D-23
I am not very knowledgeable of Islamic history or even of history as such. But am very much alive to the contemporary world.

>> 201/D-26
I have invited anyone to point out how history is falsified in NCERT textbooks. No one has responded to it despite rantings against sickulars

And despite admittedly having little knowledge of history, Saroja also has the temerity to quote the ASI report on Babri without knowing it. Truly indomitable, irascible Saroja who can not be wished away!! Wow!

Vietnam's gripe is with China.  There will always be friction between the two originating from the overlapping territorial claims in the South-China Sea.

Now, India doesn't have the balls to stand up to China in the event of such skirmishes between China and Vietnam.  Therefore the Indian president should not go around using fancy terms like "All-Weather Friend, blah, blah etc." to the Vietnamese when his words will be sorely lacking credibility when they will be tested.

Such rulings are unfortunate and likely to cause much harm to the whistleblowers. It would have been meaningful to find the authenticity of the said document, instead. When we neglect the 4-Cs such things keep happening!

This is exactly how the overground arm of jihadis argue. They will keep on repeating 'very small proportion' while the small proportion will create havoc. This is exactly how KPs got ethnically cleansed from Kashmir (now the jihadis call it Cashmere), this is exactly how Hindus got wiped out of Pakistan and Bangladesh, this is exactly how minorities get raped and murdered in Iraq and Syria. All the while the intellectual arms will claim "small percentage"!

Mr Dinesh Kumar (9/D-56) has rightly observed the fundamental malady that has gripped our country. When we disregard the importance of character, competence, compassion and courage (the 4-Cs) in the selection and appointment of key functionaries, the mediocre and the characterless ones would cause much harm for the rest. Then what Mr Kumar has highlighted keep happening and the CAG's reports rake up much controversies!

When inflation rose in June due to delayed monsoons, Congressi coolies and their servants in the media started saying where are the Achhe Din? They screamed Modi was not delivering on his promises just 40 days after government formation! Now that inflation has moderated, we are supposed to thank PC and MMS!

The fact remains that the way PC and MMS have buggered the economy, it will take at least two years to set things right. And all the people who will keep reminding us of achhe din promises will be the ones who were closet supporters of a corrupt and dysfunctional Sonia government.
