Protect Indian Scientists


Indian Space Research Organisation ISRO

           Indians have every reason to be proud of ISRO, which has taken up a hundred missions and ensured its place in aviation history by lifting 104 satellites, in Feb 2017 of which 101 were foreign owned. It also depicts the expertise of ISRO and the confidence that the world community reposes in Indian technology. What is more notable is that the launch was from Sriharikota, in Andhra Pradesh.

           A recent article on certain setbacks to the Indian Space Agency launches has set forth a chain of negative thoughts which however need to be aired in view of their impact on National Security.

         ISRO has lost contact with Geostationary Satellite 6A over two months back. GSAT 11 has recently been recalled from French Guiana just before its launch.

       Commercial Launch market is highly competitive and ISRO costs are just half of costs by other private players. Therefore, in these days of industrial espionage and wilful sabotage, Government of India must be extremely careful on security aspects.

       The case of Dr Nambi Narayanan who was falsely accused by Kerala Police imprisoned and tortured, cannot be forgotten. “The ISRO spy case did not only finish the careers of two exceptionally talented scientists but also put India’s cryogenic engine development programme on hold for more than 19 years.” *

       Could such crass frame-ups  been possible without aid and abetment by senior politicians and bureaucrats? Individuals involved in framing up the scientists and derailing Indian Cryogenic efforts have got away free.

     The recent Antrix ISRO case involving officers of ISRO is subjudice. But can one say today, that it is not another case foisted on ISRO officials to demoralise its officers and staff and derail any initiatives by scared executives?

      Not to be forgotten, there was a mole in the cabinet of Indira Gandhi in 1971. There are many individuals with ideologies, that owe their birth and sustenance to external sources. Attacks on our country need not necessarily be of the Kashmir or Pathankot variety; but also by internal sabotage ,  through misinformation and derailing systems.

      Indian scientists are dedicated and should be protected from extraneous pressures and free to channelize all efforts to achieving the goals of their organisations, instead of looking over their shoulder all the while fearing frame-ups.

Despite his distinguished career at ISRO where he headed the cryogenics division, falsified charges of espionage have dented reputation of scientist Nambi Narayanan, observed the Supreme Court on Wednesday. The Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, heading the bench hearing his plea said that the state of Kerala must pay a remuneration of Rs. 60 lakh or Rs. 75 lakh to the former scientist.

The Bench is also looking at a possibility of re-investigation into the role of then SIT officers who had framed the former scientist. The court also said that the officers involved in the investigation will have to pay from their own pockets.

Dr Narayanan was arrested in November 1994 by the Kerala Police on espionage allegations under sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Indian Official Secrets Act, 1923. He was remanded to police custody for 50 days where he was allegedly tortured by officials of Kerala Police and Intelligence Bureau of India and his statements were obtained allegedly under duress. The Police claimed that he had passed on rocket technology and cryogenic technology to some other countries for illegal gratification. However, on the investigation by the CBI, the charges were found to be false and the findings of the CBI were upheld by the Supreme Court in 1998.   

Details of the case

On 20th October 1994, Mariam Rasheeda, a Maldives native was the first one to be arrested for overstaying in Kerala. She was found to be connected to D Sasikumar, an ISRO scientist. Later, her friend, Fauzia Hassan was also arrested. A special investigation team formed on 15th November 1994 headed by DGP Siby Mathews took over the case and arrested Nambi Narayanan, Chandrasekharan and SK Sharam who were businessmen based in Bengaluru accusing them of selling ISRO’s cryogenic programme secrets to the women who were allegedly acting as spies for Russia, ISI and others.

The case was handed over to the CBI on 28th November 1994. The final report submitted by the CBI in April 1996 said that the case lacked evidence to substantiate the charges and all six were finally acquitted by the court.

Narayanan introduced the liquid rocket fuel technology in India in the early 70’s and was the first to build a successful 600-kg liquid motor engine and went on making even bigger one. He and his team also developed the ‘Vikas engine’ which was used in Indian’s moon mission. The ISRO spy case did not only finish the careers of two exceptionally talented scientists but also put India’s cryogenic engine development programme on hold for more than 19 years.

Mosque of Ahmadiyas Destroyed in Pakistan


Reaping the Whirlwind

 Ahmadiya Muslims were in the forefront demonising  Hindus and demanding a separate ‘nation’ for Muslims. Did they achieve their aim when Pakistan was created?

ISLAMABAD: Sunni extremists in Pakistan have demolished a historical mosque belonging to the Ahmadiyya community in Punjab province, the latest attack on the minority group in the Muslim-majority country.

A persecuted minority sect, the Ahmadiyya community was declared non-Muslims in Pakistan through a constitutional amendment in 1974 during the tenure of former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

The latest mob attack took place in Sialkot last night.

As the local municipal administration started demolishing a private property of an Ahmadiyya follower, about 600 miscreants demolished the nearby mosque later.

Ahmadiyya spokesman Saleemuddin said in a statement that the mob launched the attack at about 11PM and it continued till 3AM (local time).

“The place of worship and the house that has been demolished by the mob in Sialkot have great historical significance for members of the Ahmadiyya community all over the world,” he said.

The police kept on watching the vandalism and did nothing to prevent the attackers, Saleemuddin alleged, adding that it shows the state institutions have surrendered before the elements that are exploiting in the name of religion in order to fulfil their vested interests.

“Ahmadiyya places of worship have been under attack in the past as well, and so far not even a single culprit has been brought to justice,” Saleemuddin alleged.

Ahmadiyya people are not allowed to call their place of worship as mosques.

Former president General Zia -ul -Haq had made it a punishable offence for Ahmadiyyas to call themselves Muslims or to refer to their faith as Islam.

The community is also banned from preaching as well as from travelling to Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage. They are also not allowed to publish any material propagating their faith.

Members of the community in Pakistan have often been targeted, including in terror attacks.

Are Airlines Ganging up to Fleece Us?


There is something strange going on. An unpleasant ganging up by airlines to hike prices exhorbitantly.

The price of Deli Mumbai sector, Mumbai Kochi sector etc have more than doubled, across the board.  From around 10000/- for a round trip they are 18 to 20000/.

Is it because airlines want to please Modi, by offering cheap flights to the newly opened routes by subsidizing them by overcharging us?

Or

Elections mean arm twisting by political parties for funds, of course with the understanding that prices can be hiked to any extent with no action against black marketeers.

Some may say it is holiday season, etc. But I found flights half empty when I flew to Mumbai and back, during the last few weeks.

Anyone ?

 

 


As received. Makes lot of sense.
Hindus can tolerate
500 years Muslim rule
200 years British rule
60 years Family rule
10 years Italian lady rule
But not 3 years of Hindu rule?😬

GOD SAVE OUR INDIA,
CA Vinod Arya

If Modi fails in his fight againt corruption and black money, no PM of India will have the courage to take this issue again on his agenda for next 100 years and corrupt politicians, beaurocrates, police, criminals and businessman will keep looting this country as their birth right. So it is the duty of every resposible citizen to stand in support of PM Modi and fail the evil design of corrupt people to incite violence and create anarchy.
If we fail to do our duty today, our children and grandchildren will never forgive us, will hold us responsible for not giving them a clean India. If you agree, please send this message to all your contacts.
I am *NOT in Politics* and as of now, I have *no plans to get into Politics, but there will be people who may consider this post to be Politically motivated. My *Humble apologies in advance.*

I was wondering why are so many people against our *Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi*. I noticed that this started after *Demonetization* and keeping that in mind, I was thinking who could be *people who will be affected by Demonetization*.

I was shocked to discover that here are following categories of people who will feel the impact more than anyone-

*1. Educational Institutions* – They used to get all Capitation fee in cash and most of it unaccounted.

*2. Terrorist Organisation* – Their Funding is under stress

*3. Fake Currency Dealers* – With stress on Digital Economy, they are under Major Stress

*4. Real Estate Mafia* – We all know that a Big Part of payment had to be made in Cash and now they find it difficult to account for unaccounted cash

*5. Hawala Dealers* – With almost all the money in account and a close watch on withdrawals, *they won’t mind killing Modi*

*6. Fake Trusts and Charities* – They have been used for Money laundering and with the stopping of large donations by cash, they are unable to fulfill their primary agenda

7. Politicians* – Less said, better it is. Just look at almost NIL SCAM in last 3+ years is a Proof that many Politicians including BJP members are unhappy with Modi. They expected Modi to be like earlier Prime Ministers and close his eyes.

*8. Rich Agriculture Land Owners* – With most of the subsidy connected to Bank accounts, they are getting exposed.
*9. Film industry* – It’s a well known fact that it uses a lot of Black Money and except for Genuine Film makers, others are suffering.

*10. Sports & Other kind of Betting* – We know Lthat gambling (Except Lottery) is banned and still there was a *turnover of USD 150 Billion*.

Please understand that *these industries employ some of the Most Brilliant minds* in the country and they will leave no stone unturned to make sure that Modi does not get a second term.

Now it’s for us, *as responsible citizens, to decide whether we want to support the above 10 Categories of people or to support ourselves*.

GROSS MISUSE OF HINDU TEMPLES FUNDS BY GOVERNMENTS


         It is really shameful how the state governments take over Hindu temples and misuse the   money the bhaktas put into the Hindu. Lakhs of acres of land, buildings, and farmlands are allowed to be illegally occupied, revenues not collected for years.

       Jewels adorning the Deities, stolen and sold with impunity. Stolen idols are sold to foreigners around the world.

      Tamil Nadu government appears to to have fine tuned the loot of Hindu Temples.

        Pl see the attached article how organised the open loot is.

HR & CE: Rogue Department of the Government of Tamil Nadu
T R Ramesh
27 Jul 2011

      It is a great irony that a secular Government should deeply embroil itself in the administration and running of Hindu temples and institutions in the guise of supervising the secular aspects of temple administration. This grotesque policy of the Government to
supervise religious institutions applies only to Hindu Religious institutions.Viselike grip on Religious Institutions
By its own account the HR & CE Dept administers (or rather mal-administers):
36,425 temples
– 56 Mutts
– 47 temples belonging to Mutts
– 1721 Specific endowments and 189 Trusts
This has been possible due to Tamil Nadu being ruled continuously by atheists and unscrupulous persons, a corrupt bureaucracy, Madras High Court and above all, stark apathy, indifference and ignorance among Hindus. In recent times, the covert and overt
designs of Christian missionaries and agencies have added to the plight of Hindu temples.
Around 1840, the then British Government started giving up administration of temples. They asked some of the prominent mutts inTamil Nadu to look after some of the important temples and endowments. The Heads of Mutts who were happy to takeover the administration of these temples so that they are run as they ought to be run, were careful enough to get written documents or “Muchalikas” from the British Government, which assured them that they would not take back the temples from the Mutts.
Thus some very important temples came under the complete control and ownership of these Mutts and the Mutts ran them ably andefficiently. The primary purposes of worship and utilization of funds meant for the upkeep of temples and conduct of rituals were never lost sight of by the Heads of Mutts or officers. While a few temples were thus brilliantly administered by the Mutts, thousands of other temples in the then Madras Presidency were handed over to the respective trustees with the then Government playing little or no role in supervising them.

       In 1925, the Madras Hindu Religious Endowments Act, 1923 (Act I of 1925) was passed by the local Legislature with the object of providing for better governance and administration of certain religious endowments. The Act divided temples into what are known as Excepted and Non-excepted temples. Immediately after the Act came into force, its validity was challenged on the ground that the Act was not validly passed. For this reason, the legislature enacted the Madras Hindu Religious Endowments Act, 1926, Act II of 1927 repealing Act I of 1925. This Act was amended from time to time. It is unnecessary to refer to the changes introduced later. Suffice it to say that the Act was
amended by 1946 by as many as ten Acts I of 1928, V of 1929, IV of 1930, XI of 1931, XI of 1934, XII Of 1935, XX of 1938, XXII of 1939, V of 1944 and X of 1946. A radical change was introduced, however, by Act XII of 1935. The Government was not satisfied with the powers of the Board then existing and they clothed the Board with an important and drastic power by introducing a new Chapter, Ch. VI-A, by which jurisdiction was given to the Board to notify a temple for reasons to be given by it.

     Thus, it can be seen that even in the pre-independence era, the Board had systematically consolidated its powers to take over and administer temples. Of course, this despicable intervention by Government applies only to Hindu Institutions.

Health Capsule


Rec’d from Mr Watwani, is reproduced.

Squeezing a wedge of lemon into a glass of warm water, Dr. B.M. Hegde says, “It’s the best medicine for an acidic stomach. You don’t have to run to the hospital for every ailment.” “Not even for blocks in your heart,” he asserts. “Blocks in arteries are common,” he points out.
The leading cardiologist also notes that in reality there has not been even one per cent absolute increase in the rate of heart attacks. It is a plain hype, he says and calls it a labelling error. Unfortunately, every chest pain is dubbed as angina and every block is labelled coronary disease,” declares Dr.Hegde.
“Anybody who walks into a hospital with complaints of chest pain is made to undergo angiogram whereas there is a need to understand heart blocks,” he says. “Blocks happen when you are young and as they grow, nature provides bypasses through collateral vessels. This is called pre-conditioning the heart.”
Dr. Hegde believes that any individual who sees a doctor for medical help becomes a patient. “Once you get caught in the whirlwind, you continue to remain a patient.” The veteran cardiologist has been known for making bold statements on the dark side of medical industry. “When I was a student, I questioned how can cholesterol be bad if it’s made by our body. Forty years ago, I wrote that cholesterol is a counter by the body to increasing stress levels. I said coconut oil is the best oil for the heart at the American College of Cardiology Meet long ago.”
“The flaw of today’s approach to treatment is that the human body is seen as a car machine which can be repaired part by part. Whereas, the human body is a whole entity and should be treated in entirety. How else can one explain the side-effect of drugs used to treat one organ, affecting the other organs?” he asks. Author of over 40 books, Dr.Hegde also supports alternative forms of medicine like Ayurveda. Quoting Sanskrit texts from Ayurveda, he explains how any treatment ought to be holistic. “Ayurveda has unfortunately been relegated to back seat, in spite of being traditional and rich form of medical treatment,” he says.
“Health is about the environment you live in and the mind is the environment of the body. It’s not what you eat but what eats you (the thoughts) kills you,” he says. “The key is to cultivate positive thoughts and surround yourself with positive emotions. Quantam healing is the new method of healing. Your mind can heal you.” He suggests the book Quantam doctor by Amit Goswami.
Dr.Hegde opposes the burgeoning fitness craze among the young urbane crowd driven by the belief that fitness leads to good health. “Health is in the mind and fitness is in the muscle. These are two different things but often confused as one. If someone is fit to run a marathon doesn’t mean he/she is fit to live a healthy life.” “Health is not even absence of disease, as all of us have diseases. We all will have over 100 cancer cells at any given time, but they don’t become clinical cancer as they die on their own.” Quoting a sloka from Ayurveda, Dr.Hegde defines health as the enthusiasm to work and love. “Keep the enthusiasm in you alive, nurture positivity and cull negativity and you are healthy”, is his simple mantra.
Dr.Hegde practises what he calls ‘Coordinated medicine’, that’s futuristic and meta treatment. “I take elements from various genres of medicine. For instance, I take emergency care and corrective surgery from modern medicine. I don’t prescribe too many drugs and treat patients unnecessarily.” Calling modern medical treatment as ‘exclusive’ and ‘reductionist’, Hegde comes down heavily on the trial-and-error method of slapping scans, drugs and tests on patients. “I have come up with suggestions of a new definition of health and the concept of whole person healing instead of organ healing, both of which have been accepted by the Institute of Medicine.”
As a vegetarian, Dr.Hegde suggests following traditionally made and locally grown food. “One should eat what their ancestors ate. To eat Mediterranean food in Madurai will not suit your body. Eat the locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables and follow recipes that have been there for generations.” A veteran doctor that he is, Hegde says every doctor should unfailingly follow ethics since they deal with human lives.”
Dr.Hegde was in the city to deliver a guest lecture on ‘Spirituality and Health’ at the Madurai Readers’ Club

Terrible & Shameful: Trafficking in Women


‘Data from NGOs revels that every year 60,000 Nepalese girls are brought into India for prostitution’ TOI

A Syndicate run by Aafaq Hussain and his wife Saira Begum have trafficked more than 5000 girls from Nepal, remote areas of West Bengal, Orissa, Karnataka Assam, Andhra and other states. They used to sell them for uptown Rs two lakhs.

‘ Once brought to kotahs of GB road, the first were often confined to almirahs, and tunnels and forced to entertain clients in small cubicles, police said’. Saira Begun controlled the racket which was extremely organised and managed by nayikas, paid managers their assistants and traffickers.

Trafficking on such large scale over decades couldn’t have been possible without passive/ active support of individuals in the criminal justice system.

The couple has amassed property of over 300 crores.

As per news reports charge sheet has been filed.

Will these inhuman criminals be punished?

Where is justice for the thousands of victimised women?
