Pakistani former President,General Musharraf proud of Kargil Operation
The Pakistani army together with militant groups, had infiltrated the Indian side of LOC (areas of Jammu and Kashmir controlled by India) and captured strategic locations of the area including Kargil. Indian forces had to face many casualties yet Kargil was won back by India and due to International political pressure , Pakistani troops were forced to leave other areas they had entered,as well!
Even Pakistan lost many military lives and more importantly had to face world criticisms at all levels.General Musharraf is considered the mastermind of the Kargil Operation.India and Pakistan have had their reasons of conflicts since independence yet people from both the countries,ideally,prefer a peaceful co-existence, at least , now ! It would be interesting to see the performance of Musharraf in Pakistani General Elections. It would better define if the Pakistanis prefer his ideologies or not . It was easier for him last time to over throw the then Prime Minister-Nawaz Shareef and become the President himself. Winning elections and getting back governance of the country may not be a cake walk , this time !!
While Sanjay Dutt has been cleared of being involved in any terrorist plotting and/or activities related to the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts incident , he has been found guilty of possessing AK 56 rifle in his house and this ammunition belonged to the consignment which was a part of arms and ammunition which was illegally smuggled to India for conducting the bomb blast! Amid, former police commissioner who had investigated the bomb blast says dropping Sanjay Dutt off TADA (on request of Sunil Dutt to the police department and the government to show mercy)charges was department’s biggest mistake.
Sanjay Dutt to serve another three and a half years for possessing illegal arms
Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to serve 5 years for keeping illegal arms and as he has already served 1 and 1/2 years previously , he has to serve another 3 and 1/2 years to complete his sentence. Meanwhile, there are voices which are rising in favour of him sighting he has already suffered a lot since last 20 years . Influential voices from the government, keepers of law,other politicians and Bollywood wanting Sanju Baba to be spared has been rising !
Justice Markandey Katju,Film Director, Mahesh Bhatt,Jaya Bachchan and many big names want Sanju Baba be spared and there are indeed provisions in law which may ease things for ‘Munna Bhai’ of Bollywood !
Well, being his fan, it would be great to see him out of the mess but is it fair to be favouring him just because he is a celebrity ? There are hundreds of cases sited by the media where commoners suffering jail terms are eligible to be excused of serving jail any further !
