Dhimmi,

Thank you for your link to Frontline article. So you are capable of intelligent exchnges. By fabrications, I did not mean in this case. I had in mind like Ayodhya, where the excavation report is still under wraps.

Of course it was TOI reporter's transgression that hyped Modiji's mission UK rescue. But what about his role in Kargit victory? 

In a week when India triumphantly put a satellite into Mars orbit in a first try, the over-hyped visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to New York has assumed the proportions of a circus. All stops have been pulled out by wildly competing channels as though everybody is panting for 24x7 coverage. The RSS diaspora was rallied to fill every venue where Modi was to appear to augment the spectacle.

This is what we have now come to expect: shock and awe more than substance.
Two spoilers intervened early on. The Telegraph, Calcutta, (September 22) and the News-X channel discovered through their RSS contacts in the US that it was really Modi who won the Kargil War for India. In a proclaimed world scoop it was broadcast that Modi was in the US as an ordinary RSS pracharak when Pak PM Nawaz Sharif came begging then president Bill Clinton for a reprieve from disaster. Modi’s message, presumably channelled by RSS lobbyists in the US through diplomatic sources, tilted the balance and set the terms of a formula for financial sanctions that Clinton ultimately announced.

The media did not take this nonsense seriously, but it was the damnedest lie peddled to show up Modi as the man of the hour. Stand down all you Kargil land and air heroes who showed incredible daring and perseverance against tremendous odds to vanquish a deceitful enemy and bring him to his knees. That is all gossip. There were no martyrs – only Modi. How dare these third rate Hindutva whippersnappers demean a historic and unique victory by seeking to attribute it to someone who was nowhere on the scene and probably did not even comprehend what was going on. The US president’s special assistant for Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs Bruce Reidel sat through the entire negotiations and set it down for the record in a memo titled “American Diplomacy and the 1999 Kargil Summit at Blair House”. Modi and his so-called formulations simply do not figure. How could they? It was pure fiction.

As a member of the Kargil Review Committee, I was privy to all the military and diplomatic records. The truth is otherwise than the crude fabrications put out by a bunch of RSS clowns and liars glorifying a rank upstart in a most dishonest manner. As usual, Modi and, surprisingly, the Foreign Office have been silent.

A few days earlier, the India-China summit concluded with less achieved than touted. Part of the reason was the Chinese intrusion into the Demchok area in Ladakh and a prolonged confrontation that had only just been resolved.

Other things aside, the signing of some MOUs in Ahmedabad between President Xi and Modi, was accompanied by the distribution of two Gujarat-produced maps gifting Arunachal Pradesh and all of Aksai Chin and more to China. The gaffe was most embarrassing and was followed by ridiculous excuses that the maps were not official and were not appended to the formal agreements. None has been taken to task. The Foreign Office was kept at a distance and PMO and the Gujarat government handled the show to India’s discomfiture. Modi has remained silent.

And through the confrontation on the border, we did not even have a part-time defence minister as Arun Jaitley was hospitalised. We are moving from less government to no government! These are serious issues but it suits Modi to keep everything in his hands. And even as he prepared to depart for the US, Modi transferred 48 joint secretary-level officers as many were perceived to be close to the erstwhile UPA. With continuing efforts by the education ministry to control institutions of higher learning through the UGC, the Supreme Court had to tell it to lay off. The Modi mantra is to centralise everything in his hands.

After Reliance took over the media channel, Rajdeep, along with the entire founding team - editorial and managerial- resigned from the Network18 group.

Rajdeep, editor-in-chief of CNN IBN, wrote in a letter to the employees before his resignation, "Editorial independence and integrity have been articles of faith in 26 years in journalism and maybe I am too old now to change!".

Certain reports said that the acquisition by Reliance can pose a SERIOUS THREAT to the independence of media in India.

Islam and its interpretations

What is unique about Islam is that while other religious movements, particularly Christianity, got over their early violent origins, it failed to move on and update its theological precepts

We have seen a great deal of quibbling over the meaning of jihad. Muslims insist that the “real” concept of jihad does not involve violence and bears no resemblance to Islamists’ interpretation of it. The “real” or “greater” jihad, they say, means a peaceful inner spiritual struggle. An armed struggle against an external enemy is regarded as “lesser” jihad and permitted only in specific circumstances — for example, in self-defence. Theoretically true. Yet, it is also true that around the dining table in Muslim households, the term jihad is invariably used in its violent sense and mentioned in the same breath as “kaafirs.” I grew up in an extremely liberal environment, but I don’t recall, in private conversations, jihad ever being referred to in its philosophical sense. In Indian Muslim discourse, the term normally used for personal struggles, whether social, economic or emotional, is “jaddo jehad” derived from Urdu.

Extremists can be accused of inventing circumstances that, in their opinion, would justify violent jihad, or of targeting the wrong “enemy,” and using appallingly brutal methods of executing their “jihad.” But they cannot be accused of inventing the notion of violent jihad itself. There is no denying the streak of violence which — according to distinguished British Pakistani Islamic scholar Ziauddin Sardar — is “inherent” in Islam. But that is not the point. All religions, especially those which set out to gain followers through proselytisation and to conquer empires, have violent histories. Campaigns to “Christianise” Pagan Europe in the Middle Ages were not always peaceful, and then, of course, there is the bloody history of Inquisition and the Crusades.

To a large extent, Islam is often wrongly and wilfully portrayed as being somehow unique in having had a violent history. But what is unique about Islam is that while other religious movements, particularly Christianity, got over their early violent origins, it failed to move on and update its theological precepts. There has been no Islamic equivalent of Enlightenment and Renaissance, and the Islamic mindset remains awkwardly out of step with historical progress, and therefore with modern times — a hiatus reinforced by attempts to assert an Islamic identity through beards and hijabs.

Muslims will cite Koranic verses and Hadith to underline Islamic injunctions against violence; its command to treat women with respect and accord them equality; its message of tolerance, love, brotherhood, and its exhortation that we treat even our enemies with respect and try to win them over through love and persuasion rather than force. But this is one face of Islam. It also has another, less pleasant, face. For, the Islam preached by the Taliban and their fellow travellers is also Islam; and if you ask them, they will also cite Koranic verses and Hadith to back their claims. Their methods may be extreme but their philosophy does derive legitimately from the same Islamic theology that the good face of Islam does. Muslims must stop being in denial about it.

And this brings us back to what lies at the heart of the problem with Islam — namely the somewhat rough-and-ready nature of the fundamentals of Islamic sources, including the Koran, the central religious text of Islam comprising truths which, Muslims believe, were revealed to the Prophet by Allah from time to time until his death. The Koranic text, in the form of “aayts’’ (verses), is not thematically linked nor provides context with the result that an “aayt” which might have originated in a specific context is sometimes contradicted by another “aayt” on the subject but stated in a different context. This allows a free-for-all scramble for people to grab what might suit them in a given situation. Hence the confusion and the spectacle of extremists and their opponents both quoting the Koran in support of their positions. There is a similar confusion over Hadith, as explained earlier.

The difference between Suroor and Anwaar is that while Suroor uses many of the same arguments as Anwaar, he accepts that there are significant sections of Muslims who practice the violent version of the religion which friend Anwaar dismises as un Islamic and therefore, irrelevant. The problem which Anwaar and "moderates" like him refuse to accept that it is THEIR responsibility to take control of their religion. Simply arguing that Hinduism has its faults, is no defence.

Incidentally, while discussing religions' violent pasts, Suroor specifically talks about proselytising religions like Christianity. Hinduism for all its faults has never sought to convert people of any other religion by force.

126 Muslim scholars present religious rebuttal to Islamic State


(Reuters) - Over 120 Islamic scholars from around the world, many of them leading Muslim voices in their own countries, have issued an open letter denouncing Islamic State militants and refuting their religious arguments.

An array of Muslim leaders and groups have publicly rejected the Islamist movement since it imposed its brutal rule over large areas of Syria and Iraq this summer. Five Muslim nations have also joined a U.S.-led military campaign against it.

The 22-page letter, written in Arabic and heavy with quotes from the Koran and other Islamic sources, is just as clear as those groups in condemning the torture, murder and destruction Islamic State militants have committed in areas they control.

"You have misinterpreted Islam into a religion of harshness, brutality, torture and murder," the letter said. "This is a great wrong and an offense to Islam, to Muslims and to the entire world." (Reuters)

(Nihad Awad of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), presented the letter in Washington on Wednesday.)

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The editors of Outlook seem to be suffering from severe schizophrenia. One week they publish articles claiming Modi is an RSS puppet and the next, we have pieces like this claiming he and the RSS are on a collision course.

Please Outlook please. Make up your minds.

The clip posted by Mohan clearly shows that there was NO physical contact till Rajdeep turned around and first caught the gent in yellow's hand and then pushed him. After Anwaar's knee jerk response to call the Modi fans BJP goons and fascists he has strangely gone silent. At least Saroja has had the grace that it was Rajdeep who started the fight.

Also please note this headline. I would be happy if someone could enlighten me as to which TV channel Sardesai anchors after resignong from  CNN-IBN.

Ganwaar,

[[Banalities from two losers!]]

What can be more banal than "Islam is a religion of peace"?

Agree with Mr. Mehta that our media's hoopla and hype in covering Modi's visit to US is completely over the top.

Post by WIAN - 2D says it all. No matter how many evidences are put in front of them, but these sickos will shamelessly brazen it out by repetetive lies.

Amazing level of propaganda being carried out by our discredited media. Even after the facts are out in the open, they are trying to brazen it out. These media feudal lords still don't get it that there is a social media now to expose them.

@Himanshu - "18 years for Jayalalita to get justice."

Sonia heaves a sigh of relief. Doesn't have to lose sleep over National Herald.

Looks like these congressmen won't rest till Modi converts to christianity. They should well remember what happened to Indian 'congressmen' in May 2014.

"Vindictive politics?"

Does it bring back to you nostalgic memories of UPA rule ?

The Economist article by the idiot Patrick Foulis is downright racist and obnoxious. Some of these morons still think India is a colony ruled by them.
