Terrorists love Twitter but for Jama’at-ud-Da’wah and 26/11 terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed today is a bad day with his handle being suspended.

Saeed who has a free run in Pakistan with his anti-India propaganda had a good run on Twitter as well. Under the veil of speaking about the cause of Islam, Saeed was also very vocal on his Twitter account spreading an anti-India message.
His last few tweets in fact have been extremely vocal and the desperation was showing. He kept giving a call on his Twitter account to launch a final Jihad against India and to a large extent the gamble did pay off and the world witnessed his bloody actions in Kashmir last week.Read more

IMG_0192There is more trouble ahead for Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) with the CBI prima facie finding the involvement of several TMC including Srinjoy Bose in the multi crore ports scam. The CBI, which has been probing the matter, said that the estimated loss in the past one and half years caused to the state’s exchequer is Rs 2,500 crore.

The scam went on unabated thanks to the alleged involvement of the ruling TMC leaders, the CBI has found in its preliminary investigation. With the Port Scam investigation progressing by the CBI on in full swing, West Bengal faces more embarrassment after the Saradha scam and the Burdwan incident.

Dec 6- Our great Nation has moved on

Babri verdict: UP govt tense about law and orderSo much has changed between December 6th 1992 and December 6th 2014. This is a day that is remembered for the demolition of the Babri Masjid and although it will remain in the memories of many for a long time, it would be safe to say that the nation has moved on. I was just out of school when the Babri Masjid was demolished.

In fact I was in Mangalore and after the riots broke out, there was no way I was getting back home. However after a 48 hour ordeal, I managed to get into a jam packed train sit on the foot board for 24 hours and reach Bangalore. A lot of you may remember what the situation was like in the entire country.

Fast forward: Eighteen years later, I found myself at Lucknow right before the High Court. This time around I was there to report the verdict which was being passed after nearly 2 decades. There was enough and more drama that led up to the passing of this verdict. I landed in Lucknow on September 23 2010. The verdict was to be delivered on the same day. As I was leaving for the High Court the news broke that the Supreme Court had deferred the verdict of the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court. I left Lucknow for Bangalore. However in the next hearing the Supreme Court had cleared the pronouncement of the verdict and I was back in Lucknow on September 30 2010
