A teacher says no to burqa in a West Bengal Muslim university, isn’t allowed to teach

Shiv Sahay Singh

Jul 29 2010

Kolkata : For the past three months, 24-year-old Sirin Middya has not been able to hold her classes at West Bengal’s first Muslim university. While the guidelines at Aliah University in Kolkata don’t stipulate the same, the students’ union has demanded that Middya can teach but only in burqa.

Middya was appointed a guest lecturer at the university in March this year and got the union “diktat” in the second week of April. “I was told that I would not be allowed to attend college if I did not agree to come in a burqa. The University Grants Commission does not prescribe any such dress code and even the university does not have a dress code. But the most unfortunate part is that students are forcing us to wear burqa,” Middya told The Indian Express.

According to her, she has no issues with wearing a burqa — but if she dons one, it would be of her own free will.

Siamat Ali, secretary of West Bengal Madrasah Students’ Union, says he doesn’t understand Middya’s problem.

“There are eight women teachers at the university. It was decided through consulation that the women will observe purdah, and most teachers agreed. Only this lady has a problem,” Ali said, adding that they were ready to welcome Middya back as long as she adhered to the “decent” dress code.

The university has chosen to play safe, putting the issue on the backburner and hoping it dies down.

“This is a stray incident... we tried to nip the problem in the bud. There is no dress code in our university. Since there was a problem, we asked the teacher to report to the Salt Lake campus,” said Vice-Chancellor Syed Shamshul Alam.

The university was set up in 2008 by upgrading the famous Calcutta Madrasah which was started in 1781 by Warren Hastings, Governor General of Bengal. One of the oldest centres of higher learning and culture in the country, the institution has had many eminent scholars in its ranks. Aliah University was expected to harmonise tradition and modernity, and while its Islamic cources are run in the Calcutta Madrasah building, the other academic activities are conducted on different campuses at Salt Lake.

Middya joined Aliah University after an M.A. in Bengali from Jadavpur University. Having refused to kow-tow to the union, she has been unable to go to Aliah’s Calcutta Madrasah campus, and reports to the university’s library at Salt Lake. “Without taking any classes, I am given the full prescribed salary by the university,” said Middya.

“Most of the teachers do not like the diktat of the students to wear burqa. But they have no option but to accept it. This is Talibanisation of educational premises and there is no one to our rescue,” she said.

On June 4, nearly two months after she was virtually barred from the campus, Middya wrote to West Bengal’s Minister for Minority Development Abdus Sattar. She said she was yet to get a response.

Prior to this episode, Aliah University had faced another row when the students’ union held protests demanding that the word “madrasah” be added to its name.

With the university itself silent on the Middya issue, other teachers’ unions such as the All Bengal University Teachers Association (ABUTA) have decided to launch a movement.

“The university and the government should have protected this teacher and other teachers so that their fundamental rights were not infringed upon. Whereas in other parts of the world, even in Muslim countries, wearing a burqa is not mandatory, here the Left Front government has failed to protect the rights of the teacher,” said Tarun Naskar, general secretary of ABUTA.

Militants kill 23 security forces across Iraq

30 Jul, 2010

BAGHDAD: Militants killed 23 members of Iraq's security forces across the country Thursday in a combination of shootings and roadside bombs that was a bitter demonstration of the dangers Iraqi forces still face.

The worst attack came in Baghdad's Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah when 16 Iraqi security troops died in what appeared to have been coordinated killings by militants in a bold, daylight attack in the neighborhood that was once an insurgent stronghold, Iraqi police and army officials said.

Militants first started shooting at an Azamiyah checkpoint and then set it on fire, burning several of the soldiers' bodies, according to an army officer who was on patrol in the neighborhood. Minutes later, attackers detonated three roadside bombs nearby, the officials said.

A large pool of blood and what appear to be charred marks could be seen on the ground near an Iraqi army truck. Authorities immediately closed down the area.

Seventeen people were also wounded in the Azamiyah attack, which appeared concentrated around one street in the Sunni neighborhood.

Earlier Thursday, a suicide bomber drove a minibus into the main gate of an Iraqi army base near Saddam Hussein's hometown, killing four soldiers and wounding 10, said police and hospital officials.

In the western city of Fallujah, 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Baghdad, two roadside bombs targeting Iraqi army patrols killed two Iraqi soldiers and wounded eight others, police and hospital officials in the city said.

In the northern city of Mosul, a bomb attached to a police vehicle killed one policeman and injured two others, a police official in the city said.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Thursday's attacks underline the fact that militant groups can still strike with lethal force across Iraq, despite their overall weakened capability that is the result of a massive and joint US and Iraqi security forces' crackdown.

Also Thursday, an al-Qaida-linked group claimed responsibility for a bombing earlier this week that targeted the Baghdad offices of a pan-Arab television station, describing the deadly attack that killed six people as a victory against a ''corrupt channel.''

A statement posted on the website of the Islamic State of Iraq said the operation was carried out by a ''hero of Islam'' and was intended to hit the ''mouthpieces of the wicked and evil.''

''We take responsibility for targeting this corrupt channel, and we will not hesitate to hit any media office and chase its staffers if they insist on being a tool of war against almighty God and his prophet,'' the announcement said.

Ayodhya issue: Efforts begin for out-of-court settlement

Jul 29 2010

LUCKNOW: Having reserved its judgment on the title suit of the disputed Ayodhya complex after hearing the contending parties, the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has initiated efforts for an out-of-court settlement of the 60-year-old dispute.

Exercising its power under Section 89 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the Special Bench of Justices S.U. Khan, Sudhir Agarwal and Dharamveer Sharma met counsel for both sides separately in their chambers on Tuesday.

The court reserved its judgment on July 26. The verdict is likely to be delivered in September.

The Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhumi dispute has been pending since 1950. What was primarily a local issue assumed political connotations in the 1980s when the organisations affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh launched an agitation for the construction of a Ram temple at Ayodhya.

Earlier too, attempts were made to settle the dispute outside court. In 1991, when Chandra Shekhar formed a government at the Centre, with the support of the Congress, the first formal initiative was made. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Babri Masjid Action Committee handed in documents in support of their claims. But the initiative withered after the Chandra Shekhar government fell.

Another attempt was made in 1992 when the Congress was in power, with P.V. Narasimha Rao as Prime Minister. But the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992, turned the clock back.

According to Zafaryab Jilani, counsel for the UP Sunni Central Board of Waqfs, one of the parties involved in the dispute, informal attempts were also made for settling the issue in 1986 and 2002. “These involved the Jagadguru Shankaracharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and the president of the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board, but there was no headway,” said Mr. Jilani, who also serves as the legal adviser of the Law Board.

The Kanchi Shankaracharya met Muslim Personal Law Board chairman Maulana Syed Rabey Hasni Nadwi at the Darul Uloom Nadwadul Ulema here on June 7, 2003. Their meeting lasted 90 minutes. Apart from inquiring about the Maulana's health, the Kanchi seer discussed the possibility of an out-of-court settlement. An exchange of letters followed, but that was all.

Battle For Muslim Votes On Babri Verdict Begins

Jul 29th, 2010

With the verdict on the Babri mosque title suit likely in September, the Congress and the Samajwadi Party are drawing up their strategies to garner Muslim support on the issue.

Both the parties are planning to hold state level Muslim conventions where they will detail the manner in which they have worked towards protecting the rights of the community.

“We are not much concerned about the outcome of the court verdict since the same will be challenged in Supreme Court by either of the parties. What we are keen is to make Muslims realise that it is Mulayam Singh Yadav alone who has stood up for them in times of crisis. If he ever made a mistake (Kalyan Singh), he promptly owned up to it and apologised for it. Has any other leader shown the guts to do so?” asked a senior Muslim MLA from SP.

Samajwadi leaders believe that as soon as the Babri verdict is announced, Hindu outfits, including the BJP, will start whipping up Hindu passions and this will automatically lead to a polarisation of Muslim votes.

“However, we are keen to ensure that the Congress does not take the advantage of this polarisation,” disclosed the SP MLA.

The Congress, on the other hand, is determined to use the Kalyan Singh factor to question the secular credentials of the Samajwadi Party.

“Every party, barring the Congress, has flirted with the BJP. Mayawati did it thrice and Mulayam Singh did it in 1989 and then again when he joined hands with Kalyan Singh, the chief architect of Babri demolition. How can Muslims ever trust these leaders?” asked a senior Congress functionary.

The Congress-led UPA government is already drawing up new schemes for districts having Muslim concentration in the country and UP has 15 such districts. The UP Congress hopes to reap the electoral benefits of such schemes.

Moreover, the party is confident that under the leadership of Mr Rahul Gandhi — whose secular credentials and clean image are a major advantage — the party will succeed in weaning away Muslim votes from the Samajwadi Party.

The BSP, meanwhile, is preparing to play a spoiler in this battle for minority votes. According to party sources, the BSP will adopt a two-pronged strategy on the issue of Muslims.

“We will put the Congress in the dock on the issue of Babri demolition and then the delay in implementation of Sachchar Committee and the Ranganath Misra Committee reports. How can a party that has enjoyed power for 60 years not be responsible for the plight of Muslims in the country? As for the Samajwadi Party, we will tell people that it has welcomed members of the Hindu brigade including Kalyan Singh, Sakshi Maharaj into its fold and, therefore, its secular credentials are doubtful,” said a BSP leader.

Valley tension deters Pandit youth from joining work

Mohit Kandhari

Jul 29 2010

Continuing unrest in the Kashmir Valley over the past month seems to have shattered the hopes of unemployed Kashmiri Pandit youth, hoping to earn a decent living in Kashmir.

Approximately 3,000 government jobs under Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s `1,600 crore special relief and rehabilitation package were offered to the migrant youth to facilitate their return to the Valley.

After advertising the posts in various State Government departments and completion of recruitment formalities when the Pandit youth were looking forward to join work the situation worsened, bringing back unsettling memories of post-migration days and creating a tricky situation for them.

Several Kashmiri Pandit organisations find the current situation in Kashmir detrimental to the return of educated youths of displaced families to the Valley, even though they have been appointed to Government posts.

On Tuesday, Panun Kashmir leader Ajay Chrungoo said, “We appeal to the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister to realise the gravity of the situation prevailing in Kashmir and intervene decisively by delinking the employment package for displaced Kashmiri Hindus from return to the Valley.”

He suggested that all the new posts created for the community’s youth, be shifted to Jammu where the situation is stable as well as secure.

He said the prevailing situation in the Valley was worse than what had existed in the aftermath of Sangrampura, Wandhama and Nagimarg incidents.

Chrungoo said “we want to ask why the State Government is persisting with its policy of implementing the PM’s Employment Package only if Kashmiri Hindus agree to return to the Valley?”

“In the event of a mishap, both the State and the Centre are liable to be charged with willful negligence, and they cannot hide behind the written undertakings being forced on the Kashmiri Hindu candidates selected for recruitment in the Valley,” the PK leader said.

Kuldeep Raina of Panun Kashmir said: “Since the security situation in Kashmir is highly disturbing, the Government should review posting Pandit youths to the Valley.”

Meanwhile, the State Government is trying its level best to pacify the migrant youth saying efforts would be made to post all the selected candidates at the district or tehsil headquarters.

“Instructions have been given to the Department heads that the Pandit candidates should not be posted in far-flung areas.” Till date no Kashmiri Pandit candidate has proceeded to the Valley to report for duty. They prefer staying back in Jammu in view of the law and order situation.

Official sources said that a large number of unemployed educated Pandit youths had given in writing that they were ready to serve in Kashmir and, it was on the basis of this written assurance that the candidates were selected for various posts. One of the senior cabinet minister has appealed to the leaders of the Pandit organisations to avoid misleading the community youth.

The president of All State Kashmiri Pandit Solidarity Conference on Trisal on Tuesday also urged the Centre and the State Government not to push migrant youth to join their posts and make efforts to adjust them in Jammu and Ladakh regions of the State.

Doing Haj on Umrah visas is unacceptable: Al-Obaikan

Jul 29, 2010

JEDDAH: Overstaying one’s Umrah visa to perform Haj is not acceptable, said Sheikh Abdul Mohsen Al-Obaikan, a renowned Saudi scholar and adviser to the Royal Court.

“It is Haram for anyone who arrives in the Kingdom on an Umrah visa to stay until the Haj season to perform the fifth pillar of Islam,” Al-Obaikan told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.

He added that the Umrah of a person who comes to the Kingdom on an Umrah visa would be okay, but it would be Haram for the person to overstay until Haj.

“Disrespecting rules and regulations of a country is not permissible according to Shariah. These rules have been formulated for the welfare of Muslims from both the Kingdom and abroad. Breaking them is not permissible according to the Shariah,” he said.

He added that people who visit the Kingdom should use their visas for the purposes for which they were issued. “If someone is granted a visa to perform Umrah he should do that and return home. It will be Haram for him to prolong his stay to perform Haj,” he said.

Indonesia's Muslims told to switch off gossip TV

Jul 29, 2010

JAKARTA: Indonesia's highest Islamic authority has forbidden Muslims from viewing gossipy content in the country's media after a celebrity sex clip scandal dominated television news in the past month.

The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) issued the edict this week because of concerns that some media programs were not meant to educate but went beyond the barriers of decency toward pornography, said the MUI's Ma'ruf Amin.

"The problem is not about infotainment but its content which contain slander, rumors.. also the shows lead to pornography," Amin said.

He said the organization had recommended the government follow up the edict through regulations to control such "infotainment" content.

The PFI said there were also a "series of police raids on its offices across the state, unlawful arrests, breaking into houses at midnight, closing down businesses and incidents of physical and verbal harassment of women" but no "objectionable documents or materials could be found".

Leaving kids in maids’ care: Better safe than sorry

By LAURA BASHRAHEEL

Jul 29, 2010

JEDDAH: With many people in the Kingdom living fast-paced, modern lives and women holding down jobs, families are often obliged to leave their children with relatives and even maids. However, the question remains whether maids can be trusted?

According to local newspapers, a three-month-old child, called Mishary, died two months ago after being poisoned by an Indonesian maid. The woman had mixed rat poison and crushed Paracetamol tablets into the child’s milk.

The three-year-old developed a severe rash, and remained in a coma after suffering heart and kidney failure.  Police are still investigating the incident that took place in May. It is unknown whether the maid committed the act in revenge and whether she had been abused.

Saudis often blame mental illnesses on supernatural forces

By MD HUMAIDAN

Jul 29, 2010

JEDDAH: A large number of Saudis attribute mental illness to the effects of jinns or the evil eye, said Dr. Suleiman Al-Zaydi, a psychiatrist and director of public relations and information at Al-Amal Hospital in Jeddah.

“About 80 to 90 percent of our society does not believe in the existence of mental illnesses. They do not accept the fact that sick people are psychologically ill and attribute the conditions to jinns, the evil eye or black magic,” said Al-Zaydi.

He added that the families of those who are mentally ill try to treat them using spiritual means, such as reciting the Qur’an, before taking them to mental hospitals.

“This, however, impairs the diagnosis process and proper treatment,” he added.

Haqqani should be on US terror list

Jul 29 2010

President Barack Obama's pick to lead the US military command overseeing operations in Afghanistan and elsewhere said he wanted top leaders of two major insurgent groups designated as terrorists.

The Quetta Shura and the Haqqani network oppose US forces in Afghanistan and officially blacklisting their leaders could trigger punitive measures, like freezing assets. Advocates say it would also send a strong message to Pakistan, under pressure to go after insurgents inside its borders.

“Both those groups have engaged in terrorism and I believe the leaders of both groups should be placed on the State Department list,“ General James Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

‘Pro- Pak’ man leads Valley separatists

By Naseer Ganai

Jul 29 2010

A FORMER militant and the driving force behind a pro- Pakistani outfit is calling the shots in the separatist movement in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Muslim League, a hardline faction of the umbrella body of Hurriyat Conference, is now an outfit to reckon with. Its brass has sidelined existing separatist leaders of the Valley.

For over a month, known separatist faces — Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front ( JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, chairman of Hurriyat’s moderate faction Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and its hard- line chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani have desisted from issuing statements on the volatile situation in the state.

Instead, it’s young Masrat Alam, chairman of the Muslim League, who is in the forefront of the separatist protests.

FBI defends surveillance guidelines allegedly targeting Muslims

By PETE YOST

Jul 29, 2010

WASHINGTON: Under fire from US civil liberties groups, the FBI is defending domestic surveillance guidelines that critics fear could unfairly target innocent Muslims in terrorism and other criminal investigations.

"It's quite an invasive data collection system," said Farhana Khera, executive director of the nonprofit group Muslim Advocates. "It's based on generalized suspicion and fear on the part of law enforcement, not on individualized evidence of criminal activity."

Khera spoke in an interview on the eve of a Capitol Hill appearance by FBI Director Robert Mueller, who was scheduled to testify Wednesday to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In a statement, the bureau said its procedures are designed to ensure that FBI probes don't zero in on anyone on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion or the exercise of any other constitutional right.

The photograph one of Malik meeting his Indian counterpart P Chidambaram which had the tricolour upside down was captured by lensmen covering the meeting of the two on the eve of the Saarc home/interior ministers conference on June 25.

It had then taken Chidambarams personal intervention to set the matter right.But Maliks website continued to use the same photograph till Tuesday when it was finally removed perhaps after sensing Indias sensitivity on the matter.

Washington: US president Barack Obama and other key officials are trying to play down the leak of 92,000 classified military files on the Afghan war as Pentagon launched a criminal probe into the damning disclosures that also exposed Pakistans doublegame,including Taliban links.

Speaking for the first time after WikiLeaks published the papers,Obama said that though he was concerned about the disclosure of sensitive information,the documents did not shed much new light on the issue.While Im concerned about the disclosure of sensitive information from the battlefield that could potentially jeopardise individuals or operations,the fact is these documents dont reveal any issues that havent already informed our public debate on Afghanistan, he said.

Kayani to ensure army calls shots till 2013 polls

Indrani Bagchi

Jul 29, 2010

New Delhi: When Pakistani PM Yousaf Raza Gilani went on national TV to announce a three-year extension for army chief general Ashfaq Kayani,the news was not unexpected.Kayanis extension was widely desired by the US and within Pakistan as a sign of solidity and continuity.What it signifies immediately is that Kayani will continue to be the power behind the civilian facade in Pakistan,all the way until the next scheduled elections in 2013,which he is likely to preside over.

The development has not seen wild cheering in India.Because,by Indias assessment,Kayani remains one of the traditional,congenitally anti-India commanders of the Pakistan army.In fact,India need not have torn its heart out worrying about the failure of the foreign ministers talks in Islamabad.The army,particularly Kayani,did not want talks with India at this point.

Osama trail didnt go cold after 2003

Jul 29, 2010

London: Contradicting CIAs assertion that it has no intelligence on Osama bin Laden since 2003,leaked secret US documents say the al-Qaida chief personally attended a recruitment drive for suicide bombers in Pakistan in 2006.

CIA chief Leon Panetta said in June that the last time the US had precise information on bin Ladens location was in early 2000s.But the reports leaked by whisteblower website WikiLeaks show repeated instances in which US forces saw signs of the al-Qaida chief in Pakistan.

The evidence appears to contradict Penettas claim last month that there has been no intelligence on bin Laden since 2003.He was reported as attending meetings with recruited suicide bombers in 2006 in Pakistan,the documents said.

Jul 29, 2010

London: WikiLeaks editorin-chief claims his organization doesnt know who sent it 91,000 secret US military documents on Afghan war,telling journalists the website was set up to hide the source of its data from those who receive it.

Johnson T A

Jul 29 2010

Bangalore : Sending Pakistan a “very clear” message, British Prime Minister David Cameron today warned Islamabad against “promoting terror in any way in India” and said it must not be allowed to “look both ways”.

“We should be very, very clear with Pakistan that we want to see a strong, steady, democratic Pakistan but we cannot tolerate in any sense this idea that the country is allowed to look both ways and is involved in promoting terror in any way in India, in Afghanistan or anywhere else in the world,” Cameron said at the start of his first visit to India after becoming Prime Minister. He was delivering a public address at the Infosys Technologies campus in Bangalore.

CIA watched ISI tap phones, help suicide bombers

Manu Pubby

Jul 29 2010

New Delhi : Washington's claim that it gave a heads-up to New Delhi on the leaked Af-Pak documents is loaded with irony. For, what these papers show is that Pakistani spy agency ISI supplied suicide bombers in Afghanistan with explosives-strapped motorcycles and listened in on telephone networks to supply them crucial information — all right under the nose of the US intelligence establishment.

In a threat assessment report dated August 27, 2007, one of the many leaked by Wikileaks, the US intelligence establishment admits it has information that all calls made to the largest mobile phone company in Afghanistan, Roshan, are routed through Pakistan.

With a non-existent landline network, most telephone users in Afghanistan — including coalition force members and foreign nationals — are dependent on this mobile network.

Pak reacts angrily to Cameron's remarks

Jul 29 2010

Islamabad : British Prime Minister David Cameron's warning that Pakistan should not have links with groups that export terror drew an angry response from Islamabad, which said it had done more than other nations in combating the menace.

Noting that terrorism is a "global issue", Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said the world community should instead ask India to "view this issue objectively".

"Pakistan has done much more than any other country in combating terrorism. Our people and security forces have rendered innumerable sacrifices. We hope that our friends will be able to persuade India to view this issue objectively and the value of 'cooperation' in counter-terrorism," Basit said in a statement.

Headley's revelations 'ticking time bomb' in Pak-US ties

Jul 29 2010

Washington : David Headley's revelation that LeT planned the Mumbai attacks with possible help from the ISI is a "ticking time bomb" that could wreck the US-Pakistan relationship and take the subcontinent to disaster, a former CIA official has warned.

Bruce Riedel, a former CIA official and now with the prestigious Brookings Institute, said Pakistan should carry out a "thorough house cleaning" of its military after the Pakistani-American LeT operative's revelations that attackers had links to the ISI.

"Thanks to David Headley's extraordinary confessions, we now know how thoroughly LeT planned its 2008 Mumbai attack and how closely linked it is to al-Qaeda - and perhaps to the Pakistani military," said

Pak has to do more in fighting terror: US

Jul 29 2010

Endorsing British Prime Minister David Cameron's call to Pakistan to stop "exporting" terror, the US says Pakistan has made a strategic shift in the fight against terror, but more has to be done.

"Well, we don't want to see the export of terror by any country," State Department spokesman Phillip Crowley said Wednesday when asked to comment on Cameron's warning to Pakistan during his trip to India.

"We are concerned about and have said many times that extremist elements within the borders of Pakistan, in the tribal areas between Pakistan and Afghanistan, first and foremost, it represents a threat to Pakistan, it represents a threat to Afghanistan."

Noting that extremists with links to these areas have made their way to Europe and the United States, Crowley said the US and Pakistan "are both satisfied with the aggressive steps that Pakistan has taken in recent months at considerable expense to Pakistan."

Get Indian, Pak Army officers to US classroom, build trust, says Gen Mattis

Jul 29 2010

US President Barack Obama’s new pick to head the country’s Central Command has a novel suggestion on how to bridge the trust deficit between India and Pakistan: Get Army officers of both countries to attend military classes in the US together. And study American civil war.

“As we all know, they have fought several wars over a number of issues. There’s the Kashmir issue. There’s any number of terrorist attacks. But I think the most important thing we can do in support of the diplomatic efforts … is to help bring the officer corps of both militaries together and create trust between them, allow them to perhaps attend our school together,” General James Mattis commented during a Q&A at his Senate confirmation hearing.

Target Taliban bases in Pakistan: Afghanistan tells U.S.

Atul Aneja

Jul 29 2010

DUBAI: Afghanistan has urged the United States to focus on eliminating pro-Taliban sanctuaries across the Afghan border after the organisation WikiLeaks released classified documents detailing Pakistan's spy agency's collaboration with the Taliban.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Afghanistan's National Security Council head Rangeen Dadfar Spanta called upon Washington to review its Afghan policy by concentrating on Taliban sanctuaries and bases in Pakistan.

Those supporting militants should be punished rather than treated as an ally, said Mr. Spanta, who for several years served as Afghanistan's Foreign Minister in the administration of President Hamid Karzai.

“Not justifiable”

Mr. Spanta also questioned the U.S.' rationale for spending billions of dollars in Pakistan as part of the Afghan centred counter-terrorism campaign.

WikiLeaks reveal Osama shadow over Afghanistan

Anirudh Bhattacharyya

Jul 29 2010

Pakistan's Prime NEW YORK: Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and ForeignMinisterShahMehmood Qureshi may have dismissed recent assertions by US officials that Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden was in his country, but among the tens of thousands of documents posted online recently by WikiLeaks are some that appear to indicate the opposite.

According to the WikiLeaks documents analysed and posted online by the Guardian newspaper, bin Laden, US intelligence on the ground in Afghanistan felt, was closely involved in managing the insurgency in that country.

One such dispatch dated August 16, 2008, marked Threat Report, puts bin Laden's location in Quetta, Pakistan.

The report is in the context of a high-level meeting in the Pakistan city where six suicide bombers received orders to conduct an operation in Afghanistan. This meeting, the report suggests, is part of a series of planning meetings that were held regularly in that city by Al Qaeda's leadership.

Leaks easier with computer files

Jul 29 2010

Everybody is comparing the WikiLeaks document dump to the Pentagon Papers, but leaking is today much easier thanks to digital computer files. Let's not forget the immense time and wristbreaking effort it took in the pre-Internet days to copy stolen files.

For Daniel Ellsberg and partner-in-leaks Anthony Russo, copying all 7,000 pages of the Defense Department's secret history of the Vietnam War took three months by hand with a Xerox machine.

Such donkeywork proved so tiring to East German spymaster Markus Wolf that he told one of his US moles to slow down: “In the last years of the Cold War, James Hall, an Army warrant officer assigned to a National Security Agency listening post in Berlin, turned over thousands of documents to East Germany's spy service, whose analysts fretted that Hall was providing so much material they couldn't keep up with it,“ recalled an intelligence commentator.

Diggy takes war on saffron terror to PM

By Kay Benedict

Jul 29 2010

FIGHTING the Maoist terror may be the home ministry’s top priority, but Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh is worried about another type of homegrown terror.

Digvijay has taken his campaign against saffron terror to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

In a letter to the PM two- anda- half months ago, he wrote in detail about various Hindutva outfits allegedly involved in terror activities.

He underscored the need for an agency like the National Investigation Agency ( NIA) to probe the terror network of these groups masquerading as social and religious organisations.

The former Madhya Pradesh chief minister has, in fact, been waging a war against Hindutva terror — which he alleged took roots as early as 1992 — for the past two years.

He flagged the issue with the government when he wrote to the then home minister Shivraj Patil on September 16, 2008.

The Iraqi city of Fallujah continues to suffer the ghastly consequences of a US military onslaught in late 2004.

According to the authors of a new study, “Cancer, Infant Mortality and Birth Sex-Ratio in Fallujah, Iraq 2005–2009,” the people of Fallujah are experiencing higher rates of cancer, leukemia, infant mortality, and sexual mutations than those recorded among survivors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the years after those Japanese cities were incinerated by US atomic bomb strikes in 1945.

The epidemiological study, published in the International Journal of Environmental Studies and Public Health (IJERPH), also finds the prevalence of these conditions in Fallujah to be many times greater than in nearby nations.
