Uphaar fire case: Supreme Court reserves order on pleas seeking review of 2015 verdict

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court reserved its verdict on pleas of CBI and the victims’ body seeking review of the 2015 verdict in the Uphaar fire tragedy case asking real estate barons Sushil Ansal and Gopal Ansal to serve a two-year jail term if they fail to pay Rs 30 crore each as fine. The probe agency and the Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT) have sought review of the apex court verdict, delivered on August 19, 2015, sending Ansal brothers to two years rigorous jail term if they fail to pay Rs 30 crore each within three months. The convicts have already paid the fine.A three-judge bench of Justices Ranjan Gogoi, Kurian Joseph and Adarsh Kumar Goel reserved the judgement on the review pleas after hearing two-hour-long arguments, advanced by counsel for CBI, AVUT and Ansal brothers. Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for CBI, said the fines are imposed additionally and they cannot substitute “substantive” jail term awarded to convicts in a case. “Fine in lieu of conviction is alien in criminal jurisprudence,” he said, noting that while hearing the appeals against the high court verdict, the apex court had ordered “substantive conviction” by saying that the fine imposed can be “only be additional”.”Enhancement of sentence, subject to fine, is erroneous in law,” Salve said.Taking note of the submission, the bench said, “If you (Salve) are right in the first point we will not have to go any further.” Senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for Ansal brothers, said the core issue was the sentence which comprised both jail term and fine. “This long saga must come to an end. Four more months of jail term will not make much difference,” he said.Senior advocate KTS Tulsi, appearing for AVUT, said that the waiver of remaining jail term on payment of fines was not justified. 59 people had died of asphyxia when a fire broke out during the screening of Bollywood movie ‘Border’ in Uphaar theatre in Green Park area of South Delhi on June 13, 1997. Over 100 were also injured in the subsequent stampede.

‘Helpless’ BJP had to disclose details of surgical strikes: Salman Khurshid

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid on Thursday said that the NDA government had to disclose details of the surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC), as it was in a helpless position.”Surgical strikes just mean a target, and if they (BJP) are saying that they have not targeted anyone before this, then it is very surprising. They (BJP) need not say they were not able to carry forward a surgical strike in the past two years. I believe that all responsible people should not become a part of this debate,” said Khurshid.Stating that he trusts the government and the army, the former foreign minister said, “Once our army said that they carried out the surgical strike, we are satisfied with it. We are not raising any questions. Every matter cannot be disclosed and that is why we didn’t disclose too many things.”On Wednesday, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar rejected the Congress’ claims that surgical strikes were undertaken during the UPA regime.He also said that he would only share the credit of the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and added that the major share of the success goes to the latter for apt decision making and planning. “I will only share the credit, major share goes to the Prime Minister. This should settle the nerves of many people,” he said.

MJ Akbar holds talks with Iraqi leadership, seeks rescue of 39 Indians

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>India on Monday requested Iraq for assistance in rescuing 39 Indians taken hostage in war-ravaged Mosul two years back as Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar held extensive talks with President Fuad Masum and other top Iraqi leaders in Baghdad on a range of issues including threat from Islamic State.Iraq has been hit hard by the Islamic State (IS), which has captured vast swathes of the oil-rich country and the talks focused largely on ways to combat terrorism and the two countries resolved to support each other in fighting the menace. Besides President Masum, Akbar held talks with President of the Council of Representatives Salim al-Jabouri, Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Eshaiqer Al-Jaafari and National Security Advisor Faleh al-Fayyadh.In the meetings, Akbar sought Iraq’s assistance in tracing the 39 Indians and securing their safe release. The Iraqi leadership assured full cooperation and support in the matter, the Ministry of External Affairs said here. The two sides discussed the entire gamut of bilateral engagement, including in spheres of trade, investment, energy security, defence and security and counter terrorism.Akbar arrived in Baghdad yesterday on a three-day visit, as part of a three-nation trip to Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.”The two sides acknowledged the grave threat posed by international terrorism and its sponsors to international peace and security as also the very architecture of nation state. “They conveyed strong support to each other in their common fight against the menace of terrorism,” the External Affairs Ministry said, sharing details of Akbar’s meetings with Iraqi leaders. The MEA said Akbar conveyed India’s support for the unity and territorial integrity of Iraq and conveyed New Delhi’s abiding commitment to the emergence of a stable, peaceful, united and democratic Iraq, which was in the interest of regional and global peace and security.The Minister conveyed New Delhi’s willingness to partner in the reconstruction of Iraq as also for continued assistance through India’s well acknowledged capacity-building programmes under Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation Programme (ITEC). Before Akbar, the then External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid had paid a visit to Iraq in June 2013. Khurshid’s visit then was first visit by an External Affairs Minister since 1990.

26/11 Mumbai attack: Pakistan asks India to provide additional evidence; Congress says Centre should turn down demand

Pakistan on Friday said it has asked India to provide “additional evidence” for the early completion of the Mumbai attack trial in which LeT operations commander Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi and six others are accused. “Our foreign secretary has written to India’s foreign secretary to provide additional evidence so that Mumbai case trial is competed. The response from the Indian side is still awaited,” Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said at a press briefing. <!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Zakaria, however, did not elaborate when exactly the letter was written. Pakistan arrested seven Lashkar-e-Taiba-linked militants, including Lakhvi, for their role in the 2008 Mumbai attack in which 166 people were killed. Former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid on Friday ticked off Pakistan for asking India for more proof on the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and said Islamabad is citing excuses to ward-off responsibility of an inhuman attack, which claimed hundreds of innocent lives. Asserting that India should not fall into Pakistan’s trap, Khurshid told ANI, “This is excruciatingly unacceptable. Excuses that are being sought to ward-off responsibility of an inhuman attack in Mumbai. And I don’t think this is the way to go forward and I hope the Government of India doesn’t get taken in.” Mumbai attack mastermind Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum are accused of abetment to murder, attempted murder, planning and executing the Mumbai attack. Lakhvi is living at an undisclosed location after he got released from jail on bail a year ago. The other six suspects are in Adiala Jail Rawalpindi. The case has been going on in the country for more than six years. India has been urging Pakistan to complete the trial at the earliest. It has said that enough evidence has been shared with Islamabad to prosecute the accused. However, Pakistani officials say India has not provided enough evidence needed to successfully complete the trial. Meanwhile, Zakaria also said that the dialogue was the only option to resolve all outstanding issues with India. “It has been said many times earlier that peace talks is the only way forward for relations between Pakistan and India,” he said.Asked about threats against Pakistani artists in India by extremists, he said there are many other people in India who welcome and support artists and promote people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.”Both India and Pakistan agree that atmospherics should be improved and people-to-people contacts always help,” Zakaria said. He said religious tourism is part of such efforts and Pakistan has been encouraging it.Zakaria also said that influential US Senator John McCain would shortly visit Pakistan and hold important talks on various issues.

Fresh inquiry ordered to probe discrepancies in equipment from trust run by Salman Khurshid

“Centre has asked to make a three-member committee to probe alleged discrepancies in distribution of equipment in 16 districts by the Trust to handicapped persons,” District Social Welfare Officer Lalita Yadav On Centre’s directives, a fresh inquiry has been initiated into alleged discrepancies in distribution of equipment to the handicapped by Jakir Hussain Trust run by former union minister Salman Khurshid and his wife.”The Centre has recently written to Secretary, Social Welfare Department of Uttar Pradesh government to constitute a three-member committee to probe alleged discrepancies in distribution of equipment in 16 districts by the Trust to handicapped persons,” District Social Welfare Officer Lalita Yadav said here today.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The state government later wrote to the district administration of 16 districts to probe the matter, she said, adding that “probe has already been initiated in Farukhabad.” The UPA government had in 2011 granted Rs 68 lakh to the Trust for distribution of equipment to handicapped persons but there were allegations of discrepancies in the process.

Need for heart-to-heart talk with China over Azhar: Salman Khurshid

Beijing: India should have a “heart-to-heart” dialogue with China to win its support at the UN to ban JeM chief Masood Azhar, former external affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has said.

“You cannot expect China to deliver unless we talk to them. This is not carrying a shopping list,” Khurshid said, days after China scuttled India’s bid at the UN to ban Azhar.

“If we have to make friends and we cannot be selfish in your demeanour and we have to be accommodative and willing,” he told PTI during a business event in China’s Changsha city.

“I am sure China will respond and support. You need to have heart-to-heart conversation,” he said.

India has expressed disappointment over China putting a last minute technical hold over its move to ban Azhar in connection with his alleged involvement in the Pathankot terror attack.

Jaish-e-Muhammad has already been listed as terrorist organisation by UN in 2001, besides US State Department and Pakistan government.

Both Beijing and New Delhi said the issue is being discussed. Chinese officials say they have sought more details from India.

The issue is expected to figure in the talks between the two countries as Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar followed by National Security Advisor Ajit Kumar Doval were scheduled to visit Beijing in the next few weeks.

Parrikar’s visit is due to take place on 18 April.

About the Sino-India relations, Khurshid said, “My view is that we should not have unreasonable expectations. China is not easy to handle. They have their concern and priorities.”

He said both sides have to find a “win-win path”.

“I suspect enough has not happened. China has its concerns and we have ours,” he said.

Khurshid took part in China-India Corporate Dialogue held by China’s Hu Nan Commerce Bureau in association with Services Export Promotion Council (SEPC) of the Ministry of Commerce and co-sponsored by New Delhi-based Global Dialogue Review quarterly magazine.

Over 150 Chinese business houses took part in the dialogue which focussed on a host of issues including dispute resolution in trade and business related matters.

Bharat Mata ki Jai row update: Everybody has an opinion and Baba Ramdev is ready to cut heads

When it comes to the idea of India — everyone has an opinion and opinions come in binaries. National/Anti national. Patriotic/Seditious. Beef eating pariah/Pious bhakt. As the row over the phrase — Bharat Mata ki Jai — escalates, Baba Ramdev, the bearded yogi, who teaches the country how to breathe, has contributed a line of sanskari noodles (not the chow mein that makes men rape women), has something to say too.

On Sunday, Ramdev said that if there wasn’t a law that forbid decapitation, then he would have beheaded lakhs.

Ramdev, who was speaking at a Sadbhavna (compassion) rally, ironically said, “Koi aadmi topi pehan kar ke khada ho jaata hai, bolta Bharat Mata ki Jai nahi bolunga, chahe meri gardan kaat do. Arey is desh mein kanoon hai, nahi toh teri ek ki kya, hum toh lakhon ki gardan kaat sakte hain. (If someone wears a cap (referring to the skull cap worn by Muslims, especially Asaduddin Owaisi) stands up and says that he won’t chant Bharat Mata Ki Jai even if someone kills him. There is a law in this country, so I won’t kill, but I can behead lakhs of people.)”

According to The Indian Express, Ramdev said that a religion that doesn’t respect “maatrubhoomi (motherland)” is not in the interest of the nation at all.

Earlier, in March, Ramdev had said the law should be amended to make it mandatory for everyone to chant the slogan, his reasoning? — “Even though it is not written in the Constitution that one should say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai‘, there should be no problem in chanting it… Therefore, an amendment should be made in the law so that everyone says it.”

Ramdev’s comments are the latest rhetoric in a growing pool of loud opinion. The issue took centre-stage when AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi said that he would never chant Bharat Mata Ki Jai. Since then, a good number of politicians and public figures have aired their opinion about the phrase.

Here’s a look.

Venkaiah Naidu

The senior BJP leader said that there was nothing wrong with worshipping the mother on 28 March. “During the freedom movement, ‘Vande Mataram’ united all Indians. It means ‘Mata‘ (mother), salutation to you. What ‘Mata‘? not Christian ‘Mata‘, Hindu ‘Mata‘, ‘Muslim ‘Mata‘, forward ‘Mata‘, backward ‘Mata‘. ‘Mata‘ is ‘Mata‘. What is the objection in that. Why, (it is said that) there is worship in that. Which religion said not to worship mother. Let me know. I am trying to know. I am ready for a debate,” he said.

Omar Abdullah

“I look forward to seeing all the members of the PDP-BJP alliance say this (Bharat Mata ki Jai) as soon as they take their oath tomorrow,” said the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister.

Darul Uloom Deoband

The Islamic seminary issued an edict asking Muslims to refrain from raising the slogan as it is equivivalent of “idol worship”.

“We received thousands of queries on the issue so Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a ‘fatwa’ saying ‘Bharat mata ki Jai‘ is not in consonance with Islam and we will not say it. But we love our country immensely and we can raise slogans like ‘Hindustan Zindabad‘ and ‘Madre Vatan‘,” said Ashram Usmani, public relations officer of the seminary.

Devendra Fadnavis

Maharashtra Chief Minister on 3 April said, “There is still a dispute over saying ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai‘ and those opposing to say it, should not have any right to stay here. Those living here should say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai‘.”

Ram Naik

UP Governor Ram Naik said, “If there is no Bharat Mata ki Jai in India, how will the world acknowledge it?”

Salman Khurshid

“It gives us pride when we sing national anthem, to see our flag, to say ‘Vande Matram‘… Some people don’t want to do it, it’s their choice,” Khurshid said after addressing a conference on Freedom of Speech and Expression in Universities.

Kailash Vijayvargiya

General Secretary, BJP, Vijayvargiya said that those who don’t wish to chant the slogan “have no right to stay in India. They should go to some other country.”

Javed Akhtar

Akhtar in his retirement speech from Rajya Sabha took a dig at Owaisi and said, “The Constitution even does not ask him to wear sherwani (dress) and topi (cap)… I don’t care to know whether saying ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai‘ is my duty or not but it is my right.”

‘Bharat mata ki jai’ slogan row: What is wrong in worshipping mother, asks Venkaiah Naidu

Hyderabad: In a dig at AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi for his refusal to raise the ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ slogan, Union minister and senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday asked what is wrong in worshipping mother.

“It has become a fashion now to make an extreme meaning of everything and mocking at it. I won’t say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ even if my life is taken out. Before he reached gallows, (freedom fighter) Bhagat Singh said ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’,” Naidu said at an event in Hyderabad.

Naidu, who did not name Owaisi, said, “During the freedom movement, ‘Vande Mataram’ united all Indians. It means ‘Mata’ (mother), salutation to you. What ‘Mata’? not Christian ‘Mata’, Hindu ‘Mata’, ‘Muslim ‘Mata’, forward ‘Mata’, backward ‘Mata’. ‘Mata’ is ‘Mata’. What is the objection in that. Why, (it is said that) there is worship in that. Which religion said not to worship mother. Let me know. I am trying to know. I am ready for a debate”.

Alleging that such comments are made for vote-bank politics, Naidu asked if “he” (Owaisi) is the only leader of Muslims”.

“Did Muslims say ‘Bharat Mata’ is not needed,” he said, adding that religion is personal.

‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ does not mean worshipping the image of ‘Bharat Mata’ but having such a feeling inside, the Union Urban Development Minister added.

According to him, ‘Bharat Mata’ encompassed all Indians.

In a veiled attack on Congress, Naidu added “those who looted the country” express solidarity with those seeking “azadi” from corruption.

On the assertions of freedom of speech made in various quarters, the Minister said one’s freedom of speech should not inconvenience others.

The freedom of speech should not lead to social disharmony or law and order problems and that it should be within parameters of the Constitution, he said.

Earlier this month, amid the charged debate over patriotism, Owaisi had ruffled some political feathers saying he won’t chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ “even if you put knife to my throat”.

India would be very, very worried if Trump becomes President: Salman Khurshid

India would be “very, very worried” if Donald Trump were to be elected as the next US President, senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid has said, joining the growing global anxiety on the prospect of the controversial real estate tycoon winning the November 8 polls.Click Here For LIVE SCORE: India vs Bangladesh, ICC World T20″I would think, India would be very, very worried if Mr Donald Trump is to be your president,” Khurshid, former external affairs minister, told students of the prestigious Georgetown University during an interaction here on Tuesday. Khurshid’s response to a question from a student on his take on US President Barack Obama and the current presidential election was preceded by a disclaimer.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”Well, I should not interfere in the future choice of American democrats. By democrats, I mean those who are involved in democracy rather than the political party. I should not influence our choice or push you to any particular corner,” he said. Leaders around the world have condemned Trump, the 69- year-old reality TV star, for his anti-Muslims and anti- immigrants rhetoric. He has also came under attack from his Republican and Democratic rivals for his controversial remarks.Obama, he said, would go down in history as a “good friend” of India. “…as someone with whom India was comfortable about. India trusted Obama and his words meant a lot over the years. So I hope whoever comes to White House follows his path closely,” he said.Former US president John F Kennedy continues to be the most popular American president in India, Khurshid noted. Obama comes a close second to Kennedy, said the 63-year- old leader. “Let me tell you honestly, when Mr Obama won the election for the very first time, some in India felt that, although they have not voted for him, the person they were looking for has won the election,” Khurshid said, adding that Obama’s election was widely celebrated in India.

BJP terms denial of visa to Anupam Kher by Pakistan as ‘unfortunate’

BJP today termed as “unfortunate” the denial of visa to actor Anupam Kher by Pakistan saying it will be a “setback” to the process of people-to-people contact to help improve ties between the two countries.BJP also questioned the silence of so-called “pseudo seculars” who are vocal on issues pertaining to performance of Pakistani artistes in India and attack BJP and the government, saying it is “shameful”.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”This is very unfortunate that actor Anupam Kher was denied a visa by Pakistan. This is very unfortunate that an actor has been singled out. Though every country has the right to give or deny a visa to anyone, this is a setback to the people-to-people contact approach initiated to help improve ties between the two neighbouring countries,” BJP national secretary and media cell head Shrikant Sharma said.Attacking the ‘pseudo-seculars’ who are very vocal on issues pertaining to performance of Pakistani artists in India, he questioned why they were silent now when an Indian actor was denied a visa and was singled out.”Their silence is very shameful,” he said, adding why they have turned silent and are not vocal today. Anupam Kher was denied a visa by Pakistan to attend a literary festival in Karachi beginning Friday. The Pakistani High Commission in Delhi, however, claimed on Tuesday he had never applied for any visa.Kher was one of the 18 Indians invited to the four-day prestigious event by the organisers but he is the only one who has been denied the visa. The other 17 Indian participants who have been given the travel document included senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid and actor Nandita Das.The noted actor, who has just been honoured with Padma Bhushan by the government, today said he was very “sad and disappointed” over the matter and wondered whether he was denied visa for raising the issue of Kashmiri Pandits, supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and for being a patriot.

PM Modi calls for integrating yoga and Indian medicine in health care system

Making it clear that “I am not here to advocate the supremacy of one system over another,” he said, “I believe that humanity is wealthier for its diversity. Civilisations, cultures and countries have enriched each other by sharing their knowledge and wisdom…And, we can progress more by learning from each other….It is in this spirit that Swami Vivekananda called for combining the best from the East and the West. So, it must be in the area of health care. My vision for health care is an integrated system that understands and builds on the best and most effective of different traditions,” he added.
