Vol. LVIII, No. 24, New Delhi, December 24, 2006

Interview of the week with BJP chief Rajnath Singh
UPA has adopted the agenda of pre-Partition Muslim League

CLEAR, committed and uncompromising on principles, the BJP chief Rajnath Singh is fully geared up to take on and expose the sectarian agenda of the UPA government, which is dividing people on communal and caste lines. A mass leader, orator with a tab on the pulse of the organisation, Rajnath Singh is a grassroots politician with a refreshingly modern approach. He is determined that the credibility of the BJP is not lost in the quagmire of vote and coalition politics. Astute political manoeuvre of unflinching adherence to the party?s political thought, ideological vision is the guarantee for minimising indiscipline and maximising credibility, he believes.

The BJP chief candidly spoke on a wide range of issues confronting his party and the nation, in a special interview to Organiser editor R. Balashankar and colleague Deepak Kumar Rath. Excerpts:    more >

Sachar report and terror crescent
UPA engineering a festering division like Minto-Morley in 1909
By M.D. Nalapat

Rajinder Sachar?s views on the way the state should deal with the purveyors of death through terror have not been a secret, whether it be on the ?rights? of the Khalistanis in the 1980s or the ?freedoms? of the Islamic terrorists in Kashmir during the 1990s.    more >

UPA?s ungallant fall and desperate Afzal defence
By Sandhya Jain

To its everlasting shame, the UPA has preferred to allow family members of the police martyrs who lost their lives defending a terrorist attack upon Parliament in 2001 to return their gallantry awards, rather than meet the aggrieved families and assure them that no injustice would be done to dishonour their valorous dead.    more >

We say India first, they say Muslim first

FOR long, it was believed that Arjun Singh was the ultimate depth to which crass communalism and casteism in Indian politics could descend under UPA. Then, apologists for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh used to claim that the apolitical gentleman economist was pained and disturbed that politics in 21st century India was getting to resemble the dark ages. more >

Congress betraying Indian state
By Shyam Khosla

Prime Minister?s ?Muslims and Minorities, first? pronouncement has effectively demolished his public image of being an honest and decent man. One has no reason to believe that he has committed any financial fraud or impropriety but there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Dr. Manmohan Singh is politically dishonest and can go to any length even pursuing policies that he knows go against the national interests-to keep the job given to him by his foreign-born boss.    more >

Terror threat to Sabarimala
By S. Chandrasekhar

Sabarimala temple, where almost 3-4 crores of pilgrims from all over the world, come to have darshan of Hari-Hara Puthra ?Lord Ayyappan?, during the pilgrim season of November-January is always in the hit-list scanner of Jehadi outfits and ISI. Pilgrims coming to Sabarimala are being regularly targeted in the Muslim pockets en route to Sabarimala. Routinely vehicles carrying pilgrims were attacked and pilgrims assaulted.    more >

Winter capital of J&K, Jammu remained hub of activities with protest demonstrations on the eve of World Human Rights Day on December 10.

On a scale of 1 to 10, an American editor of a defence newspaper told me that his threat perception on terror attacks inside the United States would merit an eight.    more >


Treating history as fiction
By M.V. Kamath
India: Another Millennium? Edited by Romila Thapar; Penguin; pp 317; Rs 295.00

India: Another Millennium! What a fascinating subject! How would things be in India in the year 3006? For that matter how would things be in 2106? In just one hundred years more? Of course it is a matter of speculation. But one could try to speculate intelligently.    more >

Guru Nanak and Sikhism

Business of sorry and Gandhigiri

WHAT would Gandhiji have thought of Gandhigiri? Satiricus cannot say. But he thinks Gandhiji would have approved of it. At least the latest Gandhiji and the current Gandhian government would certainly go into secular raptures at the recent news that the Vardhaman Mahaveer    more >


Pakistan is not offering solutions but laying a trap on Kashmir
By Jagmohan

Of late, Pakistan President Musharraf has been talking of the possible lines on which solution of the Kashmir problem could be worked out. The most charitable interpretation that can be put on President Musharraf?s suggestions is that, like a good General, he is searching for line of retreat. more >

Unprofessional and slack:
-Dr Balram Misra by e-mail

The mental torture that I have been subjected to by the two public concerns-MTNL and BSNL-makes me conclude that their apathy for users? complaints tends to help private telephone/ mobile/ broadband companies. They discourage their users by not attending to their problems and compel them to go to private parties.    more >
