‘Hindu terror’, coined by UPA, weakened India’s stand on terrorism: Rajnath

Brand-new DELHI: Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Friday asked all political parties to present a united front to the world versus terrorism.

“Terrorism is terrorism, it has no religion, no caste,” Rajnath Singh said while making a statement in the Lok Sabha on the July 27 Gurdaspur terrorist attack.

Hitting out at Congress, Rajnath Singh said the term “Hindu terrorism” coined by its previous UPA government had “weakened” the fight versus the scourge by diverting the direction of probe into the incidents of terrorism.

After making the statement, Rajnath raked up a host of issues, including Sharm-el Sheikh fiasco and statements at Havana NAM Summit besides the 1962 war with China, to underline Congress’ alleged failures, adding fuel to fire in the protests.

Singh’s statement on the Gurdaspur attack was heard in rapt attention with Congress members suspending their protests and returning to their seats from the well after the leader of the party Mallikarjun Kharge asked him to do so.

But as soon as he concluded his statement, Congress members again stormed the well and it was a scene of protests and disruptions in the House as seen from day one of the monsoon session over the Lalit Modi and Vyapam issues.

This prompted Singh to attack the Congress. “Terrorism is the biggest challenge facing the country. Neither Parliament nor the country should appear divided on this… On the one hand, our jawans making the supreme sacrifice while fighting versus terror, on the other we have this noise and disruption. How can the country accept this,” he said.

Expressing readiness to answer any question on the issue if proper notice is given for a discussion, he said, “Our government and the Prime Minister are constantly making efforts to deal with the challenge.”

As the protests intensified, he hit back, “In this House in 2013, the then home minister (P Chidambaram) had coined the Brand-new terminology ‘Hindu terrorism’ in order to change the direction of probe. It weakened our fight. As a consequence, Hafiz Sayeed (LeT founder) of Pakistan had congratulated the then home minister. Our government will never allow such a shameful situation again.”

Livid Congress members wanted to react but were not allowed by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, prompting angry protests by the opposition lawmakers, numerous of whom were seen waving the rule book to make their point.

“This is very unfortunate. You are losing our respect,” Kharge was heard remarking amid the din. Opposiiton members crowded around her table to draw her attention that she should allow Kharge to speak but in vain.

Yakub’s hanging: Netas in war of words, Owaisi wants ‘death’ for Maya Kodnani

Brand-new DELHI: A political war of words erupted on Thursday over the execution of 1993 Mumbai blast convict Yakub Memon, with a section of opposition leaders speaking versus the death sentence.

Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh fired the first salvo, saying that the BJP- led government should show “similar commitment” in all cases of terror as it showed in the case of Yakub Memon.

“I hope similar commitment of the government and the judiciary would be shown in all cases of terror, irrespective of their caste, creed and religion,” he said in a tweet following Memon’s execution in the Nagpur central jail on Thursday morning.

Party colleague and former union minister Shashi Tharoor said he was “saddened” by Memon’s execution.

“Saddened by news that our government has hanged a human being. State-sponsored killing diminishes us all by reducing us to murderers too,” Tharoor tweeted.

“There is no evidence that death penalty serves as a deterrent, to the contrary in fact. All it does is exact retribution, unworthy of a government,” the Thiruvananthapuram parliamentarian said.

Special coverage: Yakub Memon executed

“I’m not commenting on the merits of a specific case; that’s for the Supreme Court to decide. Problem is death penalty in principle and practice,” he added.

Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja, meanwhile, said that the death penalty should be done away with in the country.

“India should say an emphatic no to capital punishment…. It does not mean we do not have sympathy with those (blast victims’) families, but by snatching away one life will not bring back all those lives,” Raja said.

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader and Hyderabad parliamentarian Asaduddin Owaisi said the government should ensure death sentence in all similar cases.

“Death sentence should also be given to Babu Bajrangi, Maya Kodnani, Col. Purohit and Swami Aseemanand,” he said.

While Babu Bajrangi and Maya Kodnani are accused in the Gujarat riots, Col. Purohit and Swami Aseemanand are accused in the Malegaon blast.

The ruling BJP slammed the leaders opposed to the hanging. Tharoor and Digvijaya Singh were forsaken by the Congress as well, which said it was their “personal views”.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the views were that of the leaders concerned and not of the Congress.

Former home secretary and BJP parliamentarian R K Singh said those making such comments did not have national interests on their minds.

“These people don’t think about national interest. Whether he (Yakub) had to be hanged or not was not to be decided by the government but the court, and the president uses his judgment after that…,” he said.

Minister of state for parliamentary affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, said justice had been done.

“Justice has been done; this increased the people’s faith in the judicial process. He got two decades to prove his innocence, and he was proven guilty,” he said.

Yakub Abdul Razzak Memon, convicted in the March 12, 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, was hanged at Maharashtra’s Nagpur central jail on Thursday morning.

Taliban leader Mullah Omar ‘is dead’, BBC report says

Brand-new DELHI: Taliban leader Mullah Omar has actually died, BBC reported on Wednesday quoting Afghan government sources.

However, the BBC added that Taliban have not commented upon the death of Mullah Omar.

A Taliban spokesman said the group would certainly issue a statement shortly, the BBC said in a report on its website.

Mullah Omar, the one-eyed warrior-cleric, was the supreme commander and the spiritual leader of the Taliban.

Afghanistan peace talks ‘legitimate’: Taliban leader Mullah Omar

In the past 13 years, Omar had stayed completely out of the public eye amid growing power struggles within the Taliban and fears of the IS group’s influence in their ranks as an ideological rival.

In April, the Afghan Taliban published a descriptive biography of their “charismatic” supreme leader Mullah Omar, in a surprise move apparently aimed at countering the creeping influence of the Islamic State group within insurgent ranks.

The Taliban have reportedly seen defections to the Islamic State in recent months, with some insurgents expressing their disaffection with Mullah Omar who had not been seen since the 2001 US-led invasion of Afghanistan.
