Indian Government Is Trying To Get Complete Control Over Information
Published on : Thursday, June 24, 2010
So many unconstitutional projects are bing pushed by the Indian Government in the name of public welfare and national interest.Aadhar and UID projects are classic cases. Indian public should stop being so naive and realize the threats on civil liberties which the Government imposes on us, writes Ram K Kaushik in Techno Legal News And Views Journalists.
Trivialisation of 26/11 and the war on terror
Published on : Monday, June 22, 2009
The political leadership in India focuses on the immediate threat by terrorists, making some fitful provisions. The larger issue of growing disorders in the region, the spectre of a failing nuclear-armed Pakistan, the terrorists' dogged pursuit of weapons of mass destruction are simply too large even to find place in the policymakers' imagination. We continue to quibble over the incremental augmentation of forces and capacities to no more than 'counter' the 'next 26/11'. The war against terrorism is a long war. But we remain abysmally unprepared, writes KPS Gill in the Times of India.
Constitution is Pakistan’s best defence terrorism
Published on : Tuesday, May 05, 2009
This article builds on words shouting of action and makes a part of them. It may go unheeded like they have gone. But the time is crucial when these words are being written. It's not in distant future that such words will be written again. Until and unless the government of Pakistan sets upon the course of action mentioned below announcing an all out war against terror and the perpetrators of terror, it has no moral and constitutional justification to remain in power, writes Khalil Ahmad in the Alternate Solutions Institute.
Nizam-e-Adl unconstitutional
Published on : Tuesday, April 21, 2009
The terrorists know that they can kill people, but they cannot bomb the Constitution. let us revert to our constitution, the constitution of 1973 as the binding contract. The Constitution should be our guiding principle in the fight against the militants. Ironically, our own political as well as military leaders have tried to disfigure it, bury it, trash it, but it's the final word and it's an idea which is still very much alive. Only the constitution can save the people, the nation, the state of Pakistan. It should be our rallying point, writes Dr Khalil Ahmad
A report on the Pakistani security collapse
Published on : Tuesday, March 10, 2009
The reports following the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team point in the direction that police’s failure is symptomatic of the system’s failure. These reports further confirm the fact that in the case of Liberty Roundabout attacks on the Sri Lankan cricket team, on the part of Pakistani police it was not a security lapse; but a security collapse, writes Khalil Ahmad in The Post.
Pakistan needs to learn the lessons from Lahore attack
Published on : Friday, March 06, 2009
The assault on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore exposed the most dangerous of vile mechanisms plaguing Pakistan. The Lankans were promised presidential security: armed policemen posted every few yards, mobile phones and remote-controlled devises are jammed, helicopters fly aerial reconnaissance missions overhead; elite police force trained to combat terrorists accompanies the convoy. Not a fraction of this kind of security was provided to ensure the visiting team’s safety in Lahore, writes Murtaza Razvi the Indian Express.
The great Indian medley for coastal security
Published on : Tuesday, December 30, 2008
The audacious terrorist attack last month has once again brought the vulnerability of India’s 7,600 km coastline into sharp and bloody focus and a slew of new policies have just been announced. Speaking in Parliament, the home minister P Chidambaram announced the setting up of a Coastal Command (CC) for the overall supervision and coordination of maritime and coastal security. It is envisaged that the long coastline would be divided into Maritime Defence Zones (MDZ) along the western and eastern sea board, as also in the Andaman & Nicobar islands. The inference is that the operational responsibility would be tasked to the navy, the coast guard and the marine police of each coastal state and the CC would introduce the much-needed inter-organisational synergy, writes C Uday Bhaskar in The Times of India.
‘Mumbai terror was a painful reminder of the past’
Published on : Saturday, December 20, 2008
Despite the horrific nature of the attacks in the past, from a counterterrorism perspective the events in Mumbai were even more worrisome. Though they did not detonate explosive belts, the attackers were truly suicide terrorists. They did not take their hostages for the purpose of negotiations and it is quite clear that they did not hope to leave the scene alive. They also created chaos by attacking several locations at once writes Ami Pedazhur in The New York Times.
Security forces to safeguard or to spread terror?
Published on : Sunday, December 14, 2008
Assam Rifles, a paramilitary force officered by the army is used for static duties like guarding sensitive places and operating against local insurgencies, entered the house of a lady, beat her and took her away. Hours later she was found naked with bullets in her body. In Gujrat, security forces kill civilians. These forces have destroyed our democratic freedom in some parts of India; talk to the Kashmiris and Manipuris, or to young girls from Mumbra driving into Gujarat. And what has happened to them will happen to us unless we discipline our security forces, writes Ashok Desai in The Telegraph.
It is time to own a gun
Published on : Wednesday, December 10, 2008
As the citizens of Mumbai go about the business of rebuilding their landmarks, instead of playing the blame game it is time for them to pause and understand how culpable we are for creating the same circumstances which multiplied the magnitude of this tragedy many fold. The entire blame cannot be squarely placed on the low-paid, corrupt, and ill-equipped police force. If you rely solely on the authorities to ensure your safety, you are rather naive. Many in Mumbai could have been saved if just a few of us were armed. As free men and women it is our responsibility to take measures to protect ourselves as best we can, using the best available tools, writes Abhijeet Singh.
