Kohinoor,the 105 karat diamond which is among one of the largest diamonds in the world and is on display in Tower Of London was taken away from India by the British during the colonial era.While,India has been requesting it back since decades , today the British Prime Minister declined any chances of the diamond being returned back siting his disbelief in ‘returnism’ and that the country is anyways taking care of it. He also visited the Jaliawala Bagh and declared the incident of 1919( where the police opened fire at unarmed civilians killing and wounding 100s at the Jaliawalah Bagh) as shameful.
BJP won 47 out of 75 seats in municipal corporation elections. BJP aka Narendra Modi ,in Gujarat,with 24 Muslim candidates who all won it for the party, clearly indicate that even the minorities understand development would mean nothing but supporting Narendra Modi. Difficult to analyse if the Muslims of the state have actually forgiven Chief Minister Modi for the 2002 riots or it is just that they do not have any option but BJP if they seek to progress . With Congress which had won town elections for decades ended up winning none, the message seems clear.
After Ajmal Kasab it was Afzal Guru who was ‘hanged till death’ for aiding a terror attack on the Indian Parliament in 2001 sending a strong message to the terrorist outfits raging a war against India and also a strong message to the opposition parties that Congress led UPA knows 2014 General Elections are ahead. 😉
Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front,Yasin Malik, was seen attending a hunger strike protest in Islamabad,Pakistan against the hanging of Afzal Guru(guilty of aiding 2001 Parliament Attack) and sharing the same stage was LeT chief , Hafiz Saeed – the kingpin terrorist who master-minded Mumbai Terror Attack 2008.
Yasin Malik , who has been a well noticed name of terror in the past and had a vital hand in driving away Kashmiri Pandits from the valley has always been promoting separation of Jammu and Kashmir from India. Indian Govt is yet to take a call on Yasin Malik’s controversial visit to Pakistan and sharing of stage with India’s most wanted terrorist, Hafiz Saeed.

While Anna Hazare has criticized the new draft of Lokpal Bill by the government, his team member ,Kiran Bedi,said it met most of the demands of a strong lokpal and is a baby step towards the same.Arvind Kejriwal , the ex-Team Anna member and the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ chief has also declared his dissatisfaction with the new draft.
The name,Anna Hazare, got popular with the same Lokpal Bill issue which he wanted to be passed by the government, to curb down corruption in India and the same Lokpal Bill made him head a team called ‘ Team Anna’ and then differences of opinion made Arvind Kejriwal, a prominent Team Anna member split and launch his political party- the Aam Aadmi Party-a political solution to fight corruption in India and all this paced down the India Against Corruption Movement led by Anna.Now it seems like another key member Kiran Bedi has a difference of opinion with Anna.Hopefully,she sticks around with Anna. 🙂
The government,on the other hand, has not only been quite successful in curbing down the much-hyped ‘India Against Corruption Movement’ but has also successfully reduced the strength and impact of Anna and his Team.Kudos to the art of silence of our Prime Minister ‘Maun'(means silence in Hindi)mohan Singh,the India Against Corruption Movement slowly and yet steadily lost its leadership,pace,goal and ultimately the interest and support of usually reluctant to react- ‘Aam Aadmi'(common man). Well,the mystery remains unsolved if it was Team Anna itself or a clever brain of the Govt behind the sabotage of a world renowned movement led by Anna. 🙂
