Hindu terrorism coined by Congress weakened India's stand on terror: Rajnath Singh -
7/31/2015 4:53:59 PM

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday launched a direct offensive at Congress president Sonia Gandhi, accusing her of coining the term "Hindu terrorism".

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday launched a direct offensive at Congress president Sonia Gandhi, accusing her of coining the term "Hindu terrorism", which he said later weakened India's stand on terror, provoking a strong protest by Congress MPs who wanted the remarks to be expunged from Parliament records.

"Terrorism has no religion. The term 'Hindu terrorists' coined by the UPA government has weakened India's stand on terrorism," Rajnath said. "Even Hafiz Saeed had praised former Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for the remarks," he added.

"Neither the country, nor the parliament should look divided on terrorism which is the biggest challenge to the country," Rajnath Singh said while making a statement in the Lok Sabha on the July 27 Gurdaspur terrorist attack.

The Home Minister even said that the term 'Hindu terrorists' coined by erstwhile UPA government has weakened India's stand on terrorism. He said the government was ready for any discussion in the matter and he was willing to answer any question. The minister said while on the one hand security personnel were laying down their lives to counter such attacks, on the other hand members were creating ruckus while the issue was being discussed.

The minister's comments came as opposition parties created a din over the twin issues of the Lalit Modi controversy and the Vyapam scam in the Lok Sabha. Opposition members had, however, stopped their protests while the minister was making his statement, but were back near the speaker's podium as soon as he finished.

In his statement, Rajnath Singh gave details of the attack and said Punjab Police made every possible effort during the operation. "Three AK 47 rifles, 19 magazines, two GPS systems and a large amount of ammunition was recovered from them," he said.

He said preliminary data recovered from the GPS showed that the terrorists had crossed over from Pakistan. "The government is committed to deal with terrorists strongly," he added.

Search for MH370: Part number confirms debris from Boeing 777, says Malaysia -
7/31/2015 4:51:53 PM

"From the part number, it is confirmed that it is from a Boeing 777 aircraft. This information is from Malaysia Airlines. They have informed me," Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said.

In a major breakthrough in the search for the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, the Malaysian government on Friday confirmed that the debris found in the Indian Ocean on Wednesday is of a Boeing 777 aircraft. A part number on a piece of aircraft wreckage confirms the object is from a Boeing 777, a Malaysian transport official said on Friday.

"From the part number, it is confirmed that it is from a Boeing 777 aircraft. This information is from Malaysia Airlines. They have informed me," Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said. On Thursday, Malaysian officials had said the debris, identified by numerous aviation experts as part of a wing, that had washed up on the French island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean was almost certainly a part of the Boeing 777.

National carrier Malaysia Airlines was operating a Boeing 777 on the ill-fated flight, which disappeared in March last year en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in one of the most baffling mysteries in aviation history. It was carrying 239 passengers and crew.

The debris was found on Wednesday washed up on Reunion, a volcanic island of 850,000 people that is a full part of France known as an "overseas department", located in the Indian Ocean near Africa. It is roughly 3700 km away from the broad expanse of the southern Indian Ocean off Australia, where search efforts have focused.

Yakub has been punished for Tiger's deeds: Chhota Shakeel -
7/31/2015 8:46:57 AM

Chhota Shakeel, the brother of Dawood Ibrahim, in an exclusive telephonic interview to Aaj Tak has said that Yakub Memon has been executed for the crimes his brother Tiger Memon committed, while stressing that Dawood Ibrahim had no involvement in the 1993 Mumbai terror attacks.

Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's younger brother Chhota Shakeel has said that Yakub Memon's hanging is unjustified. According to Shakeel, Tiger Memon is responsible for the 1993 Mumbai blasts and Yakub Memon has only suffered for Tiger's deeds.

In an exclusive telephonic interview with Aaj Tak, Chhota Shakeel has defended Dawood's involvement in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

Here is full transcript:

Chhota Shakeel: The world has seen that how justice is done in India. In a single day, four mercy petitions get dismissed. Is this supposed to be law? The members of this (law) department in India do not know what they have done with Yakub. They have hanged an innocent man.

Q: How can you call Yakub Memon innocent?

Chhota Shakeel: The whole world is calling him so. See Memon's statement, he surrendered himself to the law, provided all the documents and evidence in this case. I think the only reason Yakub was punished is because he cleared Dawood Ibrahim of the accusations. He said that Dawood had nothing to do with the 1993 Mumbai terror attacks.

Q: Does the D-company have any information regarding Tiger Memon's current whereabouts? Because of Tiger Memon's proximity with Dawood Ibrahim, the two are believed to have been the mastermind behind the 1993 Mumbai terror attacks. What is Dawood Ibrahim's reaction to that?

Chhota Shakeel: You are interviewing me, that makes a proximity between you and me too. Does that make you a terrorist? And as for Tiger Memon, can his brother be punished for his crimes? Justice has not been done.

Q: Does D-company believe that Tiger Memon is responsible for the 1993 Mumbai terror attacks?

Chhota Shakeel: The deeds of D-company are not hidden from anyone. Ask your officers... Dawood Ibrahim had no involvement in the terror attacks of 1993 in Mumbai. There is no evidence to prove otherwise. The world has seen what kind of justice has been done to Yakub Memon.

Q: The Supreme Court has done justice...

Chhota Shakeel: We don't believe in the court. This is not justice, this is vengeance. Revenge has been taken on this man.
