The United States is not going to put pressure on India to buy F-16 fighter jets or any other defence system, a senior US diplomat has said here.

United States Consul General in Mumbai Edgard Kagan said India has purchased more than USD 15 billion worth of American defence materials and the US is “very proud” of the expanding defence ties between the two countries.

Asked if there was a threat of the US imposing trade sanctions on India after its multi-billion deal with Russia for the S-400 air-defence system, he did not give a direct answer.

“The idea that the US is going to pressure India to buy the F-16 or any other system is not true. We believe that American military systems bring tremendous capability to India or any other country which buys that.

“But we recognise that India makes its decisions on its own grounds,” he told PTI in an interview here.

Kagan said it was important to recognise that decisions have consequences and India was very well aware where the US stands on a variety of issues.There are also matters that both countries can work closely to resolve, he said.

India recently concluded a USD 5 billion deal to buy the S-400 air defence missile system from Russia which could attract US sanctions under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) instituted by the US Congress on arms purchases from Moscow.

American lawmakers, however, have allowed the possibility of a presidential waiver.

Kagan said the US is “very proud” of the expanding defence partnership with India.

“The fact is that India has purchased over USD 15 billion worth of American defence materials and there hasn’t been one hint of a scandal.

“There hasn’t been one suggestion of any impropriety and that’s very significant.The American defence procurement are transparent… All details are published on the US site,” he said.

This gives certainty to the people buying American products, the US consul general said.

“When you compare the track record of the C-17 purchases for instance, or C-130 purchases, which were all done on budget, on time and in a very transparent way without a single hint of impropriety with many other defence procurement, the difference is quite striking,” he said.

The C-17 and the C-130 are US-made cargo aircraft.

Asked about the Indian government directing social media platforms to take concrete steps to check spread of rumours and messages inciting unrest, cyber crimes and other activities that could jeopardise national security, he said putting restrictions is no solution.

“I would be very concerned trying to restrict speech either on social media or anywhere else. The challenge is only to make sure that you understand the consequences of their actions.

“The solution to me can’t be to control social media because inevitably the speech that we don’t like also means trying to prevent the speech that brings change,” he said.

Kagan said India has done very well since independence in terms of ensuring freedom of speech, and having a free and vibrant press.

“If we start restricting people from social media its a very short stand. The important thing is to recognise people, need to take responsibility for what they do, to recognise the dangers and the risks of the abuse of this and we all have to recognise social media is like a knife we use,” he said.

Kagan said if tools like social media are created to power our lives, inevitably the risk of cutting ourselves is higher.

“But I don’t think it means we want a blunt knife or no knife at all,” he said.

Modi scores a diplomatic win over Pakistan in talks with Donald Trump

The frustration of Pakistan’s ruling party can be gauged from the fact that its foreign affairs and internal security ministers had stated in parliament that there may be a war against India at the end of this year and that they will use the nuclear bomb.
In fact, Pakistan’s economy is in shambles and if it really goes for a war with India it will literally be finished within a few days. Its financial coffers are also almost near empty.
Pakistan has been pressing for bilateral talks with India while continuing to breach ceasefire agreements by firing incessantly at the LOC. This has killed peaceful civilians at the villages on the Indian side of the Indo Pak border. This is though being strongly countered by the Indian Army. The Indian Army has destroyed several of their posts which has also resulted in a good number of casualties on Pakistan’s side.
Pakistan leaders are busy making anti-India statements. Pakistan’s leaders have also said that they can even sacrifice their lives to free Kashmir. Pakistan is now trying to create more terror camps in the Kashmir valley after the scrapping of article 370.
This clearly shows how Pakistan government, it’s Army and ISI are openly aiding and abetting terror organizations.  Their objective is to create disturbance and violence on Indian soil. The UN and world powers should take due notice of this fact and penalize Pakistan.
India had at a number of times made it crystal clear that it will not hold any bilateral talks with Pakistan until it gives up protecting and promoting terrorism. Pakistan also needs to give up perpetration of violence in strife-torn Kashmir. But Pakistan has never even been honest on this count.
Union home minister Amit Shah has stated that the next talk with Pakistan if ever held, would be on Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and on Nuclear use for peaceful purposes.
On 22nd of July, the Pakistan PM Imran Khan had even met Donald Trump. In this meeting, Imran Khan had requested Trump to intervene in the vexed Kashmir affair. Imran wanted Trump to help resolve the Kashmir issue. This was subsequently opposed by India, stating that, this was a two-nation tangle to be resolved only through bilateral talks.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Donald Trump, on Monday. Sources reveal that the talks between the two world leaders Modi and Trump were quite healthy and decisive. The topics discussed were: Pakistan’s rhetorics against India and an effort by it to create a warlike syndrome, the Afghanistan situation wherein Modi requested Trump to not withdraw troops till there is complete peace in that country and the bilateral and trade relations between the two great nations.
The telephonic conversation between the two world leaders lasted for about half an hour. Modi highlighted the problems created by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir. He also pointed out the increasing ceasefire violations from the other side. Modi mentioned about the war rhetoric by Pakistan against India. Modi acquainted Trump about Pakistan’s prejudices against India especially after the scrapping of article 370 and 35 A in Kashmir, which is purely India’s internal matter. Modi further pointed out to Trump about Pakistan’s efforts to infiltrate and push its trained terrorists to India. This was in addition to uncontrolled and unprovoked firing at the LOC that has claimed Indian lives.
This discussion between the two leaders has disturbed Pakistan’s prime minister Imran Khan and the ISI. Pakistan is hell-bent on engineering and perpetrating violence on the Indian side. This has become more vigorous particularly after the scrapping of article 370 and the division of the state into Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir as union territories.
Prime minister Narendra Modi’s talk with Trump is being rated as quite successful and fruitful with Pakistan badly frustrated. Pakistan has been already completely isolated in the international diplomatic scenario. Pakistan only has China as its lone ally in the whole world.
US President Trump had previously stopped military aid to Pakistan for promoting terror sanctuaries within Pakistan. Though Pakistan has no intention to wipe out terrorists from its soil, however, Trump has assured India of doing something credible in this context.

Pakistan in war mongering syndrome after abrogation of article 370

Read Time: 4 minutes

BJP led NDA government has abrogated the special status to Jammu and Kashmir by repealing the 70-year-old article 370 and 35 A.

Imran Khan government in Pakistan and its media are so badly frustrated that they have increased the arms and ammunitions and its forces on the Ladakh and Indo Pakistan border across LOC. Its foreign and internal security ministers Shah Mohammed Qureshi and Fawad Chowdhary have issued highly irresponsible statements in the Pakistan General Assembly.

They spoke about staging a war against India as well as issued a direct threat of nuclear attack against India. In an interview to Pakistani news channels and in a debate in parliament Pakistan, the foreign minister said that the coming 3 months are quite critical and challenging for Pakistan. He even said that there is the possibility of war with India at the end of the year.

Even Pakistan Prime minister Imran Khan has threatened of a befitting reply to India. The Pak’s interior security minister and PM Imran Khan’s close confidante Fawad Chowdhary in his hard-hitting address in Pak General Assembly has openly challenged the Indian government saying that each and every Pakistani would sacrifice his or her life for Kashmir. They would continue their relentless fight for securing Kashmir come what may. Both the ministers while issuing an open threat to India have even gone to the extent of stating that the Nuclear arsenals are not kept in Pakistan for mere exhibition but would be used against India.

The television news channels of Pakistan are disseminating poisonous tirade against India. They are twisting the facts to the core. They are spreading complete lies to provoke its populace against India. This is especially after the abrogation of article 370 from Kashmir. This is despite knowing very well that its an internal affair and prerogative of the government to take any action that is best for the country.

Spreading misinformation campaign against India has become the order of the day for the Pakistani news channels and print media. This is in conjunction with the Pak PM Imran Khan and his ministers issuing irresponsible provocative statements against India. They want to take every possible advantage of the Kashmir situation. This is especially after the historic decision of the Indian government of abrogating the special status related article 370 and 35 A from the strife-torn Kashmir. Frustrated Pakistan PM Imran Khan has not even desisted himself against using derogatory remarks against India and meddling in its internal affairs. He tweeted three days ago: The curfew, crackdown and the impending genocide of Kashmiris in IOK are unfolding exactly acc to RSS ideology inspired by Nazi ideology. An attempt is being made to change the demography of Kashmir.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan often forgets that it is his government and the ISI which has been openly aiding and abetting terrorists. They aid the perpetration of killings and genocide in Kashmir. They have already violated ceasefire agreements about 2000 times. It should first put its own house in order instead of creating disturbances and destabilization in Kashmir and other parts of India. Pakistan as a country is in economic shambles with a begging bowl in its hand. Pakistan has been reprimanded by the USA a number of times. Pakistan has also been completely isolated in the international sphere.

Warmongering against India by Pak PM and his ministers is nothing but an act of frustration. An economically bankrupt country like Pakistan would be fully destroyed and finished if it really goes for a war against India. These “Geedad Bhapkies” coward threats are nothing but frustration against India.

Responding to Pakistan’s threat and the assembly of extra force and arms and ammunition at the LOC, Indian Army chief Vipin Rawat warned Pakistan of strongest possible retaliatory action if need be. He added that India is fully prepared for any eventuality.

Meanwhile, the Indian film industry and the music companies in India have strongly condemned Indian singer Mikka’s participation in a ceremonial function in Pakistan and for performing there. Mikka has been banned by them and would not be given the opportunity to record his songs by these music companies in Bollywood.

The United States President Donald Trump’s statement of intervening in the Kashmir imbroglio in order to help resolve the seven decades old vexed political crisis between Pakistan and India on Pak president Imran Khan’s request has raised a storm in the political circles of India especially amongst the key opposition party Congress and its allies.
The United States president Trump has expressed his wish to do so when Pakistan cricketer turned premier met US President Donald Trump at White House today requesting him to meddle in the resolution of the protracted Kashmir crisis.
During the interaction while Imran Khan complained  that despite his best effort to  request India to come on the negotiating table India hasn’t responded, the US president on the other hand responded by terming both the countries and its leaders as incredible and appealing that they should come on the negotiating table to resolve the Kashmir crisis at the earliest. He categorically said he will be the happiest person to mediate and help resolve the crisis as asked for.
The US President Donald Trump created storm and furor in Indian political circles when he revealed that the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi has recently during the G- 20 summit requested him to help resolve the Kashmir tangle as also requested by Pak premier Imran Khan.
The senior leaders of the ruling BJP including the foreign minister Jai Shankar however strongly refuted Trump’s statement in the Lok Sabha terming it as a blatant lie.
Even the BJP leader and MP Sonkar Shastri have in one of the TV debates’ accused Trump as a blatant liar who lies several times during the day.
The Indian external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar also denied Trump’s statement unambiguously saying that India will never accept the third party mediation as the Kashmir problem is between India and Pakistan. He also emphatically said that until Pakistan gives up aiding and abetting terrorists and terror sanctuaries on its land and ends killings there is no question of resumption of bilateral peace talks between India and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, the chief spokesman of Congress party Randeep Singh Surjewala has condemned the statement of US President Donald Trump to intervene in Kashmir imbroglio to resolve this long pending crisis. He questioned prime minister Narendra Modi for asking Trump to mediate in the G 20 summit held recently and demanded his detailed clarification on the issue in Lok Sabha.
Surjewala said Kashmir crisis is a two-nation problem between India and Pakistan and no third country would be allowed to meddle in our internal affairs. The Kashmir problem should be resolved under the parameters of the Shimla Agreement and the Lahore declaration.
Meanwhile, according to latest news reports pouring in the American lawmakers have apologized for Trump’s statement on vexed Kashmir issue saying that it’s a two-nation imbroglio to be resolved by both of them with the US having no right to intervene.

US and FATF pressure led to the arrest of Hafiz Sayeed in Pakistan

Read Time: 3 minutes
Pakistan is badly baffled and furious after its defeat in the International Court of Justice in Hague, Netherland, where 15 out of total 16 judges have accepted India’s pleas in Kulbhushan Jadav’s matter and rejected Pakistan’s contentions.
The court held Pakistan responsible for several deliberate breaches of international Vienna conventions and reprimanded it for not granting Kulbhushan Yadav consular access. ICJ also reprimanded Pakistan for not informing India while arresting Kulbhushan on the frivolous charges of spying. They also questioned the death sentence awarded to Jadhav by a Pakistan court, etc.
Despite now being in a defensive position after the ICJ verdict,  Pakistan is rather trying to misuse its media by claiming its victory instead of a clear cut defeat at ICJ.
All of Pakistan’s channels are showing news fully laced with falsity about the victory of Pak in ICJ, thus misguiding its countrymen.
After the ICJ’s judgment reprimanded Pakistan, Pak’s PM Imran Khan tweeted the following and took credit of its so-called victory in ICJ:
‘Appreciate ICJ’s decision not to acquit, release and return Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav to India. He is guilty of crimes against the people of Pakistan. Pakistan shall proceed further as per law.’
Meanwhile, it has again  enacted another drama to bring to the world’s notice the arrest of Jamat Ul Dawa chief and international terrorist Hafiz Sayeed, to not only misguide the United Nations and the member countries but to also impress upon the Financial Action Task Force of UN and US President Donald Trump as to how seriously it’s honoring the US directives to curb terrorism and arrest hardcore terrorists on its land.
There is a bounty of 10 million US dollars on the head of Hafiz Sayeez for arresting him dead or alive imposed by the United States of America.
He is not only responsible for 26/11 Mumbai attacks which claimed 161 innocent lives but along with Azhar Mehmood is also the chief culprit of Pulwama massacre, both dreaded international killers on US’s most wanted list.
After the news of Hafeez Sayeed’s arrest reached US President Donald Trump, he tweeted:
‘After a ten-year search, the so-called mastermind of Mumbai Terror Attacks has been arrested in Pakistan. Great pressure had been exerted over the last two years to find him.’
Sources reveal that Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan has enacted this drama just two days before his US visit to impress upon the American president about Pakistan’s seriousness to deal with terror with a heavy hand as directed by the US.
Moreover, since Pakistan’s economy is in extremely bad shape and the country is banking on massive loans from the World and Asian Development Banks, if it does not act on the directions of FATF and puts hardcore terrorists like Masood Azhar and Hafiz behind bars it would be denied financial aid from these international banks and US. Without these financial aids, Pakistan’s economy will be badly crippled.
The Indian external affairs spokesman Ravish Kumar has meanwhile termed Hafiz Sayeed’s arrest in Pakistan as a mere cover-up to misguide the United Nations and the US. He has stated that Pakistan is trying to misguide all the nations by showing that it is now serious towards curbing terrorism with a heavy hand.
He unambiguously said that till Pakistan does not eradicate terrorism and terror sanctuaries from its soil inch by inch, India will never have any deliberations with Pakistan.

The drug menace in India is a protracted problem which has percolated down to the grassroots destroying the younger generation irrespective of class and categories of the society.
There was the time when drug consumption was allegedly considered to be the forte of the affluents and the rich children through expensive rave parties in hotels but today it has percolated down in the children and youth of the lowest ebb of the society spoiling the health and career of the children and the youths of the country.
Punjab being the border state of Pakistan had been the worst sufferer during the last three decades where smuggling of narcotics/drugs from neighboring Pakistan has not only made the domestic smugglers highly rich and affluent but has also spoiled the majority of the young generation by way of making them horrible victims of this dreaded menace, further leading to enhancement in crimes, mortality rate and spoiling of myriad families.
The drug menace in Punjab is so extensive that even names of politicians involved in this rapid money making drug syndicate have come to the fore.
The local police, politicians and drug syndicates’ alleged nexus has further spread the tentacles of narcotics smuggling in Punjab ultimately leading to the spoiling of families and future of the nation, the youths.
A full-fledged feature film titled UDTA PUNJAB was made by Bollywood highlighting the lavish drug trade of Punjab and subsequent spoiling of myriad families due to this dreaded menace.
The worst phenomena about the drug trade are, it also accompanies terrorism with it, as the massive money earned through the smuggling of drugs, especially its finest form Heroine, which fetches a whopping Rs. one crore for a kilogram in the international market is clandestinely used to fund terrorist activities in the country by way of purchasing and acquiring illegal arms to kill innocents and the law enforcing agencies personnel behind them like the police, paramilitary and the Army troopers and the officers.
A report by senior journalist Shishir Gupta in HT highlights the investigative details about increasing activities of Pakistan’s drug smugglers in India whose primary aim is to fund terror activities in India through the handsome earning from drugs smuggling.
According to the news report, Pakistan’s ISI has strengthened its drug smuggling activities to pump them in India through three countries viz Maldives, Sri Lanka, and India Coast guard.
These drug smuggling syndicates of Pakistan in league with the ISI are resorting to massive narcotics smuggling to fund terror activities in Pakistan says his report.
To substantiate this contention there was a major haul of 50 kg of heroine from a Pakistani boat in Sri Lankan Coast Guard on Indian authorities’ input in the nation’s exclusive economic zone on July 10th.
Similarly, on May 21st the Indian Coast Guard seized 218 kilograms of Heroine from a Karachi registered Pakistani shipping boat AL MADIA of Jakhua in Kuch districts of Gujarat.
In all 6 crew members were arrested with 194 packets of heroine smuggled from Karachi Pakistan.
Sr. journalist Shishir Gupta’s report further mentions that around the same time the Maldivian police seized an Iranian boat with Pakistani national on board on May 26 with a large quantity of drugs.
In Gujarat seizure though the boat was set ablaze by the Pakistani smugglers, the intelligence reports revealed that the consignment was handed over by the Pakistani agent Hamid Malik to boat captain Mohammed Aslam to be delivered to a Mumbai resident Badruddin Shiekh.
The report further reveals that the role of narcotics smuggling from Pakistan to India and its use in funding terrorists in India was first revealed by the Laskare Tayyeba terrorist of US origin David Colemen Headly while being interrogated in 2010 for his direct involvement in the deadly Mumbai attack on 26/11 diabolically killing 161 innocents including a senior police officer Hemant Karkare.
This is a new strategy adopted by the ISI to smuggle a massive quantity of drugs in India worth hundreds n thousands of crores through Maldives and Srilanka in order to fund terror misadventures in India.
The total cost of the earlier seizures of drugs amounts in hundreds of crores as per the rates in international markets.
Similarly, as per another report of journalist Anil Sharma, the border village of Punjab just few hundred meters near the Pakistan border quite infamous for massive heroine smuggling from across the border has till now 106 cases of drugs smuggling against 48 families under the Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Act least worried for stringent jail terms.
Located at the stone’s throw from the Indo Pak border’s barbed wire fence and merely forty kilometers from the district headquarters, Havelian village had been in the news after the custom authorities at the Attari check post found 532 Kg of Heroine and 52 Kg of mixed narcotics concealed in the consignment of rock salt from Pakistan on June 29th.
The total cost of this consignment if sold in the international market would be whopping 570 crores or more.
Except for 6 to 8 families of Havelian village in Taran Taran, all of them are allegedly involved in drug smuggling making an easy buck.
About 20 families in the wanted list after earning handsomely in this trade had shifted elsewhere like Amritsar, leaving their lands barren.
This village has become the main conduit for smuggling heroin since the last four decades as per Anil Sharma’s report in HT having started opium smuggling after partition on a low key.

More than 93,000 polling stations in 77 provinces will be open until 5 pm.

Pakistan misguides the entire world by banning Jamait Ul Dava. Gives free hand to Army n protects Azhar n Hafeez Sayeed.

A lier PM of a coward nation
The so called decision of the Pakistan government to ban the terror organisation Jamaat UL Dawa and one more led by international terrorist Hafiz Sayeed responsible for the Mumbai attack that killed 161 innocents is nothing but just a cover up to show the world countries that the new political dispensation in Pakistan is serious to curb terrorism n terror sanctuaries on its soil. The government of India n the US government after capturing Headley has delivered Pakistan enough proofs but inspite all this Hafiz Sayeed n Masood Azhar are roaming freely in Pakistan n delivering hate speeches issuing venemous statements against India including engineering deadliest fidayeen attacks like Pulwama etc.

While on the one hand after so much of international pressure and insult of Pakistan in UN and amongst the various nations of the globe not only is the coward Pakistan n its PM Imran Khan is asking for evidence shamelessly but has also given free hand to Pakistan Army to carry on misadventures aganst India. The Laskare Tayyebba n Jamaat Ul Dawa chief Hafeez Sayeed runs three hundred madrasas in Pakistan and generates funds in crores from gulf countries of the world which are literary the terror factories in the making.

The open statements of cowards Jaish E Mohammed chief Azhar Masood n LET head Hafiz Sayeed to destroy India to the core come what may are ample proofs of Pakistan Army’s and ISI’s complete patronage and blessings to these hard core terrorists n the terror sanctuaries flourishing on the Pakistan soil.

The entire world knows unambiguously that after the occurance of the tragic n most despicable Pulwama attack which martytred more than 40 troopers of CRPF, it was the Pakistan headquartered Jaish E Mohammed terror outfit which took the responsibility for this deadliest blast. Then where does the Question of giving proof to Pakistan is concerned ?

But instead of officially banning of the hard core terror organisations like LET n JEM n putting their chiefs on trial n detention the Pakistan premier diplomatically announces ban on just Jamait Ul Dawa which was the US demand since long and instead gives both these hardcore terrorists protection with special intructions of free hand to Pak Army to continue n carry the misadventures against India which unambiguously indicate that it will continue to sneak in terrorists in side Indian soil, carry on its anti India misadventures and continue to breach border pact despite 1800 previous LOC violations. Pakistan Army, ISI and its sponsored terror outfits n their chiefs Masood Azhar n Hafiz Sayeed are badly rattled n disturbed as the Indian Army has brutally killed Azhar Masood’s terrorist nephew n about 248 hard core home grown n Pak sponsored militants during the last three, four years and the trend is continued unabatedly.

There are still 57 terrorists left in South Kashmir who have shifted to their clandestine safe hide outs due to Army’s reprisals. The massive flushing out of terrorists’ operation of Indian Army n CRPF has created a huge terror n fear psychosis in the minds of the DEHSHATGARDS. Their days seemed to be numbered.

The government has withdrawn security cover earlier given to the Hurriyat leaders who are the Pak proxies. The Indian army n the J&K police have now established tremendous cordination n are doing their best to make Kashmir terror free. The recent statement of the Kashmir Chinab Corps chief Lt general KS Dhillon warning mothers to mend their sons prohibiting them not to pick guns but instead surrender failing which they’ll be eliminated speaks of the clear fact that now the India army in Kashmir is in no mood to relent.

Meanwhile Pakistan has been totally isolated in the United Nations. The UN today passed a resolution strongly condemning the Pulwama attack n the incessant terror killings in Kashmir at the behest of Pakistan. The resolution warned pak n its various terror outfits to give up their terror oriented activities. Even China stood with India for the first time in signing the resolution.

The countries like France, US, Argentina, UK, Germany n the Europeon Union have already assured India of their full fledged n outright support in countering terrorism worldwide n against Pakistan. They are bringing resolution in UN to include Azhar Masood in the UN terrorists list n to declare Pakistan a terror state.

Pak badly frustrated after US, France and United Kingdom come to India’s rescue against the terror sponsoring nation PAK

India has won diplomatically at the global level against Pakistan. The three countries of the world, super power United States of America, France and England have credibly stood in favour of India and against Pakistan by supporting India’s anti Pakistan stance and move a resolution in the United Nation’s demanding declaration of brutal n obnoxious Jaish chief as international terrorist in the UN list n pronouncing Pak a terrorist state responsible for engineering umpteen despicable murderous attacks in the Indian soil on several ocassions. This is a huge setback to coward Pakistan n its cricketeer turned flamboyant PM Imran Khan.

This is the right, opportune and most apt time for the world communities especially the western nations n the Europeon union to come forward to help n support India in their fight against global terrorism.

The entire world n humanity has already suffered tremendously at the hands of these divisive, reactionery n murdurous forces who’ve wrecked havoc in the entire global scenerio and India seems to be worst victim of this despicable murdurous n destructive trend at the hands of Pakistan who’d since decades been harbouring, aiding and abetting the terror sanctuaries, killing unfinite number of people within n outside Pakistan despite warnings from US n the peace loving countries.

It’s really shocking that even the United Nations have not been successful in its efforts to declare Pakistan as a hardcore terrorist state despite it’s unambiguous involvement in the US twin Tower attack, Mumbai attack, Pathan Kot attack and hundreds of other misadventures in strife torn Kashmir resulting in the most abominable unprovoked killings of innocent civilians n the army troopers making thousands of children fatherless n mothers widow.

There have been about 1800 or more cross border violations by Pakistan of the Indo Pak peace accord and shockingly over 80 thousand civilians, troopers n extremists have been killed in Kashmir during the last three decades.

There have been several instances of decapitating the heads of Indian Army soldiers at the LOC and Pak sponsored terror blasts in various parts of Kashmir n India.

The Pakistan Army, its ISI n the political dispensation are in league to ensure that India is destabilised from all angles having lost all wars fought with India till date.

The Chinese government is the one that is fully backing bankrupt Pakistan against India n had till date opposed the India’s entry into the elite Nucleur suppliers group as well as India’s every initiative to declare Azar Mehmood as the International terrorist in the UN list.

Entire world knows that the major culprit of 1992/ 94 Mumbai Bomb Blast mastermind Davood Ibrahim is in Karachi being protected by the ISI.

Who does not know that LET chief n mastermind of twin tower attack in US n Mumbai that killed about 6000 innocents obnoxious Hafiz is in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Are people n politicians of the world not aware that Jaish E Mohammed’s chief Azar Masood the mastermind of Pulwama attack n several other attacks in Kashmir lives is Bhawalpur, Rawal Pindi in Pakistan under full police protection.

Who does not know that Burhan Wani killed by Indian Army was the LET n Jaish’s proxy who killed hundreds of innocents in Kashmir and on who’s honour the govt of Pakistan released a postage stamp giving him an honourable status of a martyr.

Is it not true that after the dastardly killing of 41 CRPF troopers in Pulwama, Kashmir the Jaish chief Azhar Masood himself claimed the responsibility of the Avantipora massacre.

There are hundreds of well established proofs with America n India n the UN is still not able to declare Pak as the terrorist state n catch hold of these two dreaded terrorists masterminding terror operations n killing myriad number of innocents worldwide .

Time has arrived when all the peace loving countries of the world should sideline China n Pakistan in the global scenerio and apply sanctions against it including carrying out of flushing operations to arrest Hafiz Sayeed n Azhar Masood out of the Pak territory dead or alive. This is the only n most relevant solution to give a formidable stop to terrorism in Asia n the world. What’s your take friends?

Kulbhushan Jadhav case: India-Pakistan set to face-off in ICJ

India and Pakistan are set for a showdown at the International Court of Justice which will commence on Monday a four-day public hearing in the case of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage.

India moved the ICJ in May in 2017 against the “farcical trial” by the military court of Pakistan against 48-year-old Jadhav. Jadhav, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April 2017. India first approached the ICJ on May 8, 2017 for the “egregious violation” of the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, 1963 by Pakistan by repeatedly denying it consular access to Jadhav.

A 10-member bench of the ICJ, which was set up after World War II to resolve international disputes, on May 18, 2017 had restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till adjudication of the case.The ICJ has set a timetable for the public hearing in the high-profile case from Febraury 18 to 21 at the Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. While India will argue first on February 18, Pakistan will get its chance to make submissions on February 19. Then India will reply on February 20 while Islamabad will make its closing submissions on February 21.

It is expected that the ICJ’s decision may be delivered by the summer of 2019.While maintaining that India remains committed to make all possible efforts to secure and protect the rights of Jadhav, the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs Raveesh Kumar did not make public New Delhi would take at The Hague.”India will present its case before the court. Since the matter is sub judice it is not appropriate for me to state our position in public. Whatever we have to do, we will do at the court,” Kumar said last week in New Delhi in response to a question.

Pakistan’s Attorney General Anwar Mansoor would lead the Pakistani delegation at the ICJ while Director General South Asia Mohammad Faisal would lead the Foreign Office side.Ahead of the hearing, a senior Pakistani official said that his country is committed to implement the decision of the ICJ in the Jadhav case.”We are fully prepared with our strongest evidence being the valid Indian passport recovered from Commander Jadhav with a Muslim name,” the official said.

Both India and Pakistan have already submitted their detailed pleas and responses in the world court.Pakistan claims that its security forces arrested Jadhav from restive Balochistan province on March 3, 2016 after he reportedly entered from Iran.However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. Jadhav’s sentencing had evoked a sharp reaction in India.

Pakistan had rejected India’s plea for consular access to Jadhav at the ICJ, claiming that New Delhi wants the access to get the information gathered by its “spy”.However, Pakistan facilitated a meeting of Jadhav with his mother and wife in Islamabad on December 25, 2017.The hearings at the ICJ is taking place four days after one of the worst terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir that killed 41 CRPF soldiers. The terror attack happened when a suicide bomber of Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) blew up an explosive-laden vehicle near a convoy of CRPF buses in Pulwama district on Thursday.

Pakistan’s support to terror and its involvement in Pulwama attack last week will the focus of discussion as Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammad bin Salman visits India.
He will be on a two-day India visit starting on February 19 and ending on February 20.
Remember Riyadh bailed out Islamabad last year financially. Riyadh can tighten the purse strings for Islamabad if it doesn’t rein in terror. The Prince will be coming to Delhi after his visit to Pakistan.

During his visit, he will be calling on President Ram Nath Kovind and have bilateral talks with Prime Minister Modi.
This will be Mohammad bin Salman’s second meet with PM Modi in a span of three months. They last met on November 29 in Argentina on the sidelines of G20 summit.
“One the issues which could come up for discussion are trade and investment, defense, security including counter-terrorism is another. Renewable energy which is something that is coming up as an important area of cooperation,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in his weekly briefing last week.
Modi had also visited Riyadh in April of 2016. During the visit, Salman had honoured the PM with “Sash of King Abdulaziz”, the highest civilian decoration awarded by the West Asian country.
Saudi Arabia is the fourth largest trading partner of India after China, US, and Japan. India imports 17 per cent of its crude oil requirement from the kingdom. The bilateral trade between India and Saudi Arabia stood at $27.48 billion in FY 2017-18, a year on year increase of 9.56 per cent.
Raveesh Kumar said, “The objective is to consolidate the strategic partnership which we have with the country.”
The crown prince is the second most important person, after the king and designated successor, in one of the largest oil producer nations of the world.
In April 2018, Saudi Aramco, the largest company in the world by revenue, signed an MoU with an Indian consortium (IOC, HPCL & BPCL) to acquire 50 per cent stake in India’s largest refinery project ‘Ratnagiri Refinery & Petrochemicals Limited’ at $ 44 billion.
A 2.7 million strong Indian community is in Saudi Arabia. Haj pilgrimage is an important component of bilateral relations.

In 2018, Riyadh increased the Indian Hajj Quota by 5,000, enabling 1,75,025 Indian to perform Hajj last year.
