Will Fugitive Scofflaw Zakir Naik Be Caught At All?

Could India’s officialdom be spreading glib lies about attempting to apprehend scofflaw hate-mongering Islamic preacher Zakir Naik?

He has reportedly applied for a Malaysian citizenship in the mainstream media.

Congress apologists and leading lights of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party are trading charges in the matter after Amir Gazdar one of his aides confessed serious wrongdoing on the part of Naik to Mumbai cops.

The real picture can be deduced from the following pointers reproduced from a blog in these columns published a year ago:

Naik’s bigger backers are located beyond the borders of India – many of them in the Middle-East. The current central government has extended olive branches to all of them to “contain terrorism” and expand trade.

Between 2013 and 2015, Naik was conferred several awards in the Middle East.


Dubai International Holy Quran Award  

Islamic Personality of 2013 conferred on Naik by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President, Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai


India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Rashid Al Maktoum in 2015 August.

Modi had undertaken a two-day visit to UAE in August, a first by an Indian prime minister in 34 years.

UAE is home to 2.6 million Indians.

During the visit, the two leaders pledged to end terrorism.

On September 19 2015, Rashid Al Maktoum succumbed to a massive heart attack at the age of 33.

Sharjah Award for Voluntary Work  

Conferred by Sultan bin Mohamed Al-Qasimi Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah


Born in 1939, Sheikh Sultan III bin Muhammad Al-Qasimi is a member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates and current ruler of the Sharjah emirate. He has ruled Sharjah since 1972. The rule was briefly interrupted during a six-day period between 17 and 23 June 1987. It was an attempted coup led by his brother Sheikh Abd al-Aziz bin Muhammad al-Qasimi.

King Faisal International Prize

Conferred upon Naik by Saudi King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud


Some of the others who won this award include King Abdullah Ibn Abd AI-Aziz of Saudi Arabia himself, Al Qasimi of UAE, Presidents Dr Hamed AI-Ghabid [Niger] and [Alija Izetbegovig] Bosnia-Herzegovina and Abdou Diouf [Senegal]; Prime Ministers Mahathir Mohammad [Malaysia] and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan [Turkey]  

On April 3 2016, Saudi King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud [who had won the above award himself] presented India’s PM Narendra Modi with the Arab nation’s highest civilian award.

Zakir Naik’s perfidy was publicly known a decade ago.

Naik was banned from entering the UK by the then Home Secretary Theresa May [currently British PM] in 2010.

“Numerous comments made by Dr Naik are evidence to me of his unacceptable behaviour,” May was quoted as saying.

The admirers of 1965-born qualified medical doctor Zakir Abdul Karim Naik have spread mayhem on a global scale since 2006.

They include Najibullah Zazi, the Afghan-American arrested for planning suicide attacks on the New York subway, Rahil Sheikh [1], accused of involvement in a series of train bombings in Mumbai in 2006 and Kafeel Ahmed, the Bangalore born man killed during a failed suicide attack on Glasgow airport in 2007.

Indian Journalist Shoaib Daniyal disagreed with Naik’s belief that “Americans swap wives at will because they eat pigs which also swap their wives”. He also pointed out that Naik’s statement that Islam allows a man to marry multiple women because “in the USA, there are more women than men”, was inconsistent with US demographic statistics.

Torkel Brekke, a professor of religious history in Norway, calls Naik a very controversial figure.

Naik’s rhetorical attack on other religions and other varieties of Islam are strongly disliked by many members of the Indian Ulema for ignoring their authority.

Indian journalists had issued warnings about Naik.

“It would be useful to consider the case of Zakir Naik, perhaps the most influential Salafi ideologue in India,” observed Praveen Swami, a senior Indian journalist in his seminal work part of a book published in 2011.Operative excerpts from its blurb:

Sections of Bollywood backed Naik.

Film producer Mahesh Bhatt supported Naik in 2010 saying the ban constituted an attack on freedom of speech.

Naik’s application for judicial review of the ban was dismissed on 5 November 2010.

The same year, Naik was forbidden to enter Canada after Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, warned MPs of Naik’s views.

The bans on the entry have not been lifted.

India’s mainstream media had begun their harangue in 2016.

Operative excerpts from a report in The Times of India dated July 9 2016:

Mumbai-based preacher Dr Zakir Naik, who is under the scanner after two of the Dhaka terrorists claimed he was an inspiration, seemed to have been followed by four youths from Kalyan, a Mumbai suburb. They had run away and joined the Islamic State.

Areeb Majeed, arrested for IS activities in Kashmir, is believed to have told interrogators of the National Investigation Agency that he was ‘inspired’ after hearing the lectures of Naik.

Copies of Naik’s lectures were also found in a library located in Bihar, a north Indian cow-belt state. Enquiries had revealed the facility was frequented by Indian Mujahedeen members.

One of those who regularly accessed Naik’s works is Yasin Bhatkal – now in custody in India.

Like the Dhaka terrorists, Mumbai youths hailing from well-to-do respected families are drawn towards fundamentalism-fuelled-violence caused by the speeches of Naik. Besides Areeb, the other Islamic State joiners in the knowledge of police are engineering students Fahad Shaikh and Amaan Tandel.

According to police sources, suitably brain-washed initially by Naik’s hate-speeches, Areeb Majeed’s hatred was honed by a woman, Tahirah Bhatt, who also helped him join the banned group. In turn, Majeed recruited Shaikh, Tandel and others. They fought in Iraq. Currently, Majeed is in jail. Shaikh had contacted his family a few months ago. The whereabouts of Tandel aren’t known.

“The named youths were provoked to commit anti-national activities citing the destruction of Babri Mosque and Gujarat riots. Primary sources of ‘inspiration’ were hard-copies of Naik’s works. Naik’s rallies used to witness huge footfall in Bihar,” the official added.

Families of 15 young men and women from Kerala state’s northern districts suspect their offspring may have joined the Islamic State, according to top sources in India’s southern-most state.

It is not exactly known whether Zakir Naik’s speeches had impelled the youths to take such a step. However, a Press Trust of India report published by the website catchnews.com revealed alarming aspects of this unlikely tale. Operative excerpts:

State Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has directed the police to launch a probe into the matter urgently, said Member of Parliament P Karunakaran. He represents the north Kerala constituency of Kasargod – located on the state’s borders that touch Karnataka.

“Family members of these youths were aghast reading Whatsapp messages. ‘We are not coming back. Here there is Divine Rule. You also should join us,’ one message said. ‘We have joined IS to fight US for attacking Muslims,’ said another. These youths were visiting the Middle-East for religious studies. We brought it to the notice of CM P Vijayan,” said Karunakaran. He had been apprised of the issue by a local body leader VPP Mustafa and a legislator M Rajagopalan.

This group comprises men, women, couple and even a child travelling along with parents.

The abhorrence of family members back home is apparent from the statement issued by Hakim, a male parent of one of the ‘missing’ youths.

“If my son returns as a good man, I will welcome him. If not, I do not want to see even his dead body,” Hakim was quoted as saying.

According to Rajagopalan, all those missing were below the age of 30 and highly qualified. This motley ‘missing’ crowd includes a medical doctor couple and an engineering graduate, his wife and a 2-year-old child. Before dropping out of sight, different persons in this group had presented varying tales for leaving Kerala. The reasons included visiting families far away job search.

The youths’ approach to life had undergone a sudden change during the last 2 years after accessing inflammatory Islamic literature, Rajagopalan added.

Surely Zakir Naik is an influential man.

Naik was ranked 89 on The Indian Express’s list of the “100 Most Powerful Indians in 2010”.

Naik was ranked 82 in the 2009 edition.

BBC’s Sanjiv Buttoo says he is acknowledged as an authority on Islam. However, he warns that Naik is known for making negative remarks about other religions.

US based senior journalist Sadanand Dhume observes that Naik has a ‘carefully crafted image of moderation’. This has been achieved through a gentle demeanour, dress sense of wearing of a suit and tie and his quoting of scriptures of other religions.

Naik was also listed in the book The 500 Most Influential Muslims under honourable mention from 2009 through 2014.


Seven serial blasts had ripped through Mumbai’s suburban railway network at peak hour on July 11, 2006, leaving at least 147 dead. The death toll had risen to 189 later. The incidents’ mastermind was Rahil Sheikh, currently in prison.

Sheikh is a trained as a computer engineer.

Sheikh’s brothers – Faisal and Muzammil were charged in the 2006 bombings.

Sheikh’s telephone records had indicated that he had been receiving calls from Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Also, it has been suggested that he was acting as the point man to collect funds and pass it on to the LeT which is said to have carried out the attacks.

Sheikh is said to have travelled to Pakistan.


Remembering Rajiv Gandhi 20 August 1944 – 21 May 1991

As Indians should we be sorry about insulting the memory of Rajiv Gandhi on yet another of his murder anniversaries?

The answers could shock every patriotic Indian.

Readers are requested to go through every inbuilt link to get the full perspective.

Should the Congress Party that ruled India that is Bharat for over 70 years apologise to former India PM Rajiv Gandhi for posthumously stabbing him in the back?

Was Rajiv ‘sacrificed’ to help the Congress win the 1991 parliamentary elections that clearly triggered his widow morphing into exalted status of the ‘uncrowned empress of India’ from 1992 to 1999 and ‘unconstitutional authority’ between 2004 to 2014? Is that why Sonia had a ‘cosy’ relationship with the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam – a party whose rule in TN was sacked in 1975 at the behest of the Congress [1] and was the raison d’être for pulling down the Gujral coalition at the centre? [2]

Should the Indian National Congress look over its shoulder to discern the suspicious nature of the meeting between Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rajiv assassin Nalini Sri Haran a.k.a. Murugan in 2008?

Should the current National Democratic Alliance regime take a close look at the role of Rajiv’s Widow Sonia Gandhi a.k.a. born Edvige Antonia Albina Maino in the ex-PM’s murder?

Is someone covering up her suspected double agent roles through her links to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence and former Soviet Union’s infamous KGB and its later-day incarnations?

Is there much more to Karti Chidambaram’s flight to London to escape imminent arrest and questioning in the matter pertaining to multiple shady deals of amassing wealth beyond his known sources of income?

Are such secrets linked to Harvard don and senior advocate P Chidambaram? 

On this day – May 21 2017, around 8.a.m., in the morning, this website: http://bharatkalyan97.blogspot.in/2014/02/chidambara-rahasyam-tsv-hari.html could be clearly seen. It then disappeared and this line appeared in its place: “This website/URL has been blocked as per instructions from Department of Telecommunications of India.”  If this can happen on a Sunday, on Rajiv Gandhi’s death anniversary, obviously, someone close to P Chidambaram can pull strings within the ministry of telecommunications. Who could that be?

Meanwhile, this writer has picked up the gauntlet and is exposing the nice lawyer even more! https://haritsv.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/the-toxic-chidambaram-smokescreen Let us see if he can block that too!

At this point in time, the plausible answers to all these questions are in the affirmative.


Operative portions from a Times of India report dated June 26 2014:

“The Emergency in Tamil Nadu can be classified into two phases — before and after the dismissal of the DMK government on January 31, 1976,” said former Madras high court judge K Chandru.

“The President’s rule in the state was draconian. DMK leaders were thrashed in prison,” said Chandru, who was a member of the Justice Ismail Commission, which probed alleged prison excesses during the Emergency.

Senior DMK leaders Murasoli Maran, then MP Chitti Babu, M K Stalin, Arcot Veerasamy and several party volunteers were imprisoned and allegedly beaten up. DMK leaders say while Veerasamy lost his hearing, Maran never recovered from a back injury and Chitti Babu, who bore the brunt of the attack, died in Chennai prison in 1976.


Operative portions from the relevant Wikipedia dossier:

On 30 January 1991, the DMK government which had come to power after winning the 1989 was dismissed by the Indian Prime minister Chandrasekhar using Article 356 of the Indian Constitution. President’s rule was imposed on Tamil Nadu from 31 January. The reason cited for the dismissal was the deterioration of law and order in the state and the DMK’s alleged closeness to the LTTE. The union law minister Subramanian Swamy, cited (among others) the assassination of the Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF) office bearers in Chennai on 19 June 1990 by the LTTE as the proof of collusion between the DMK government and the LTTE. The Samajwadi Janata Party government of Chandrasekhar at the centre was dependent on the outside support of Rajiv Gandhi’s Congress, which in turn was an ally of the ADMK in Tamil Nadu. The dismissal followed pressure on the Chandrasekhar government by the Congress and ADMK to dismiss the DMK government. The Chandrasekhar government fell on March 1991 after the Congress withdrew its outside support. Fresh elections for both the Indian parliament and Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly were scheduled for June 1991.

Mumbai cops actively protect Indian criminals

The safest haven for criminals in India that is Bharat – is the nation’s financial capital – Mumbai!

The following documented crimes and their perpetrators are living testimonies to this reprehensible phenomenon:

Pakistan-based 26/11 and 1993 terrorists’ financiers continue to operate in Mumbai with impunity.

Since 2013, the sinking of a naval submarine remains unsolved despite the then Defence Minister AK Antony saying in parliament that he suspected enemy action! India’s mainstream media [MSM] cares two hoots about this.

Rafique Malik Tejani, a pillar of Mumbai’s 5-star-cocktail circuit has been accused of being in cahoots with the likes of Dawood Ibrahim and others time and again. The 3-year-long cover-up was achieved through the July 2016 so-called suicide of a shady media hack blackmailer.

Tejani reportedly had a suspect role in the enemy action that sank Mumbai’s guard-ship submarine – Sindhurakshak in 2014. The matter was exposed for the nth time in 2016. No action was taken!

Instead of being hauled up before the law, Tejani and the company Metro House – headed by him – have allegedly usurped property owned by Mumbai Port Trust.[1]

The crimes are being committed with impunity – thanks to ‘cooperative operating methods’ of the ‘yellow-section’ of India’s Mainstream Media [MSM]. The controls are in Karachi, Islamabad and Beijing!

There is worse.

Mumbai cops shamelessly collaborate with gangsters. The system plays musical chairs with a few careers. [2]

The third most important case pertains to Zakir Naik – who is having a jolly time abroad. Mumbai cops keep pretending to attempt nabbing Naik.

It is one of the most vain cover-up attempts – with the help of former Mumbai cops occupying pivotal position in Saudi Arabia! [3]

These columns had clearly exposed how and why Zakir Naik may never return to India.

Finally, there is India’s most wanted terrorist fugitive Dawood Ibrahim.

Ibrahim is said to be linked to India’s Vigilance Commissioner for Banking Operations – TM Bhasin.

Bhasin is involved in a lot worse!

Among other things, Bhasin has been suspected of being in cahoots with international terrorist criminal Dawood Ibrahim to destroy India’s finance sector by mounting an attack on India’s international banking showpiece – the Bank of Baroda.

For further details on criminal banker Bhasin’s financial misdemeanours, download and read:





Dawood’s Mumbai based accomplices are linked to an Rs.2, 60, 00,000 crores scandal tied to the Mumbai’s Port Trust. Top 5 newspapers of Mumbai carried a fallacious report about the building now called Metro House.

The plinth area of Metro House on whose ground floor a beer-joint Café Mondegar is located is 1457 square metres [a little over 14,500 square feet]. Upon this plot, 4 floors totally measuring some 57,000 square feet have been erected. The rough per-square-foot price in the area is Rs.1, 00,000. The calculable commercial value of the building on that basis is Rs.5.70 crores. But a mere 20 sq ft shop abutting the pavement has a value of Rs.3 crores. On that basis, the conservative commercial value is at least 1000 times more or simply, Rs.5.70 lakh crores! 

Metro House is situated within a 1 km radius of the offices of the Maharashtra state’s Director General of Police, the 26/11 Pak Terrorism victim Taj Mahal Hotel and Leopold Cafe, the biggest Jewish shrine of worship in Mumbai, besides the State Legislative Assembly and Secretariat.

Café Mondegar – a beer joint – frequented by the rich young crowd – was about to be evicted on April 19 2015, reports believed to have been planted by a media racketeer masquerading as a journalist Saumit Sinh, said.

The originally planted news item dated April 17 2015:


The Times of India had to eat humble pie by publishing this report on April 21 2015 – because its sister publication Mumbai Mirror had published a report on April 18 2015 saying Mondegar would be evicted.

Operative excerpts from the ‘humble-pie’ report published in The Times of India on April 21 2015:

Eviction proceeding against the iconic Metro house in Colaba that houses Cafe Mondegar, did not begin on Monday [April 20 2015].

[The above paragraph implied the eviction was scheduled for April 20 2015.]

Metro House, a lease holder of the property, and other tenants had received a notice for termination of lease agreement by Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) last November 2014 and respondents have reply within six months.

Indian Express dated April 18 2015 scored its own goal. Excerpts:

Cafe Mondegar, an iconic watering hole, now faces closure. The restaurant and pub is among the 23 tenants of the Metro House in Colaba which was issued a lease termination letter by Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) in November last year for violation of lease norms.

The occupants of the building, including Cafe Mondegar, were given time to vacate the property, and the deadline ends on Sunday, April 19.

The eviction notice, served on November 19, 2014, says that the lessee of the building, Metro House Pvt Ltd, has flouted every possible term of the lease, including multiple instances of illegal subletting and alterations, unauthorized constructions of mezzanine floors, lofts, installation of mobile towers, besides unpaid rent, service tax and interest. The MbPT has also slapped a compensation demand of Rs. 76,16,537 (including interest, service tax) which was supposed to be paid by the tenants within one month after they received the notice.

Ex-Mumbai Port Trust chairman Ravi Parmar said, “We have served a notice terminating the lease of Metro House. After the notice period expires on April 19, we will start eviction procedure.

Operative excerpts from a report in the Daily News and Analysis dated April 23 2015 – which formed the fig-leaf cover-up:

The Metro House Pvt Ltd, which houses the famous Cafe Mondegar, has been issued an eviction notice by the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT). The last day for response is slated as May 19.

The Metro House Mystery

The building and the land on which it [Metro House] is constructed have belonged to the Board of Trustees of the Port of Bombay since 1873.

In the Small Causes Court – a matter is actually pending in a contorted manner. In one of its rulings, the Small Causes Court says:

“Admittedly, the plaintiffs [viz. Cafe Mondegar and a small roadside shop Shankar Book Stall locked in a legal dispute concerning a shop within the Metro House building] are tenants of the premises, Unit No. 2, 5 and 6 owned by Metro House Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai.”

The Maharashtra Rent Control Act 1999 declares in its own text at Section 3 that its provisions do not apply to a premises owned by the government or by a local authority and the Board of Trustees of the Port of Bombay is one such local authority.

Mumbai Port Trust’s lawyer has claimed ownership of his principals on the plot of land leased to Metro House since 1995.

Relevant excerpts from the notice issued to Metro House:

 My clients … [owners of the building located on] a plot of land bearing RR No. 2100 [Old RR No. 1312] the Trustees of the Port of Bombay had granted lease by registered lease deed dated 4-4-1995 admeasuring 1457 sq. mtrs … for a period of 30 years commencing from 1.03.1991 and expiring on 28.02.2021. My clients Trustees Resolution No. 39 of 1991, the board accords [sic] its sanction for grant of fresh lease in renewal of expired lease of the above premises in your [Metro House’s] favour.”

The original lease was in the name of a Muslim Trust or Wakf that had ended on July 31 1986.

A copy of a sort of circular dated December 2 1986 on the letterhead of Khanbahadur Haji S. Meharbakhsh 1st Wakf-alal-Aulad about Aboobaker Mansion, 23-23B-25 Shahid Bhagat Singh Road, Colaba Causeway, Bombay 400 039 addressed to all tenants, signed by (i) Shaikh Abdul Aziz Meherbaksh; (ii) Shaikh Abdul Haq Meherbaksh; and (iii) Amjad Aziz Meherbaksh says:

We hereby intimate to you that by an irrevocable power of Attorney executed by us today appointed, constituted and nominated MALEK SULTAN ABDUL MALIK TEJANI and SHRI RAFIQUE ABDUL MALEK TEJANI as our attorneys to hold and manage overall affairs of our immovable property known as “ABOOBAKER” Mansion situated at 23-23B and 25 Shahid Bhagat Singh Road, Colaba Causeway, Bombay 400 039 with full powers and authority inclusive of recovering arrears and accruing rent/compensation and mesne profit from the Tenants/Occupiers of the property.

We have therefore to require you to pay the arrears and accruing future rent/compensation and mesne profit and all other charges to our said Attorneys and deal with them directly without any reference to us.

On 2nd December 1986, the Wakf and its Mutwallis had no claim of any sort on the building including any income derived from it.

In simple terms, Metro House was an illegal occupant claiming to be in possession of the building on the basis of a non-existent lease – which was renewed by the Mumbai Port Trust on 1-03-1991.

How can Mumbai Port Trust renew a NONEXISTENT lease?

The owners of Metro House are directly linked to the 1993 Mumbai bombings and the multi-thousand crore rupee Cobbler Scandal.

One of so-called subtenants of Metro House – Cafe Mondegar – reportedly was one of the sites of the 26/11 planning done by David Coleman Headley.  

The owners of Metro House destroyed the career of an honest income tax official and hounded him for 12 long years.

Rafique Malik [a.k.a. Rafik] with the family name Tejani has sinister political connections that touch the 1993 Mumbai bomb-blasts, city-based criminals linked to Dawood Ibrahim who are all in turn linked to powerful politicians – like Sharad Pawar. Excerpts from an article published on August 12 2014:



[By blocking my Gmail account, Google has blocked this blog and hence helped the enemies of India.]

Excerpts from a Times of India report dated October 25 1996 P7 under the heading Shoe scam accused aided in the city’s1993 serial bomb blasts:

“During the arguments in the case, Public Prosecutor VT Tulpule contended that a confidential report from the Intelligence Bureau hinted that the accused persons [comprising Rafik Malik of Metro Shoes, Kishore Signapurkar of Milano Shoes, who owned shops in Karachi and Singapore] had used a portion of the money to fund the serial bomb blasts that rocked the metropolis on March 12 1993.

[Emphasis added].

Excerpts from Times of India [Bombay Times] report dated October 30 1996 under the heading:

IT officer who raided Dawood Shoes falsely implicated. “Exactly 12 years after [income tax department assistant director] Manoj Mishra first exposed tax evasions [by Dawood and Metro Shoes] Mumbai Police has now begun unearthing the skeletons of the multi-crore fraud … known as the Cobbler Scam.”

“Justice VH Bhairavia of the Mumbai High Court …[observed in his judgement thus]:It is clear that the complainant [Sadruddin Daya] who was designated for some time as the Sheriff of Greater Bombay … has gone to the extent of creating a false case against innocent officers such as the appellant [Mishra].”

“Mishra had been raided by the Central Bureau of Investigation. Daya had [claimed to have] handed over Rs. 2.5 lakh to the officer [Mishra].”

“Mishra had been suspended and convicted to rigorous imprisonment for 3 years and a fine of R.50,000 was imposed on him.” The verdict came in August 1995 [12 years after his conviction].

“Mishra’s lawyers argued that over Rs.2.5 crores were due from Daya.” Among the political links being investigated is that of former Maharashtra chief minister, Sharad Pawar.

Excerpts from an Outlook India report:

Link: http://m.outlookindia.com/story.aspx/?sid=4&aid=202844

Investigations have revealed Tejani to be a director of the Rs. 500-crore Dynamix Dairy Products Private Ltd in which Pawar is believed to have a stake through the holdings of family members.

For more download and read here:

Wikipedia suggests that Sharad Pawar has other questionable links:

In 2002–03, the then Maharashtra Chief Minister Sudhakarrao made a statement that the state leader of Indian National Congress party and erstwhile Chief Minister Sharad Pawar, had asked him to “go easy on Pappu Kalani”, a well-known criminal-turned-politician now.

Sudhakarrao also alleged that it was possible that Kalani and Hitendra Thakur, another criminal-turned-politician from Virar, had been given tickets to contest election for Maharashtra State Legislature at the behest of Sharad Pawar who also put in a word for Naik with the police when the latter was arrested for his role in post-Babri Masjid Demolition riots in Mumbai.

Sharad Pawar is also alleged to have close links with the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim through Ibrahim’s henchman Lakhan Singh based in the Middle East and close relationship with Shahid Balwa, also a suspect in the 2G spectrum scam. In turn, Balwa has links with currently disgraced BJP leader Eknath Ganpatrao Khadse. It was alleged that it was Balwa who had applied for environmental clearance for two of the projects linked to Pawar linked to the kingpin in the stamp paper scam, Abdul Karim Telgi cited a link from the magazine Outlook.



Café Mondegar is run by the Rusi Yezdegardi clan since the 1930’s.

A member of the Yezdegardi family sought to evict a Shankar Bookstall located on its periphery since 1952 by filing a case in the Court of Small Causes at Bombay vide a suit filed under the Maharashtra Rent Control Act 1999.

The plaint cited Metro House Private Limited as the owners of the building to whom the café pay pays to a monthly rent of Rs. 14,761.65 which includes Rs. 7,909.36 earmarked for ground rent levied by the Board of the Mumbai Port Trust.

The Trial Court chose to dismiss the suit. It, however, stated in its ruling, “Admittedly, both the plaintiffs are tenant of the premises i.e., Unit No. 2, 5 and 6 owned by Metro House Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai.”

On two floors of Abu Baker Mansion – lodging houses are being run. They are said to be linked to Nigerian drug and weapons’ smugglers reportedly operated between India and Thailand. A few of them are in a prison in Bangkok.

A series of 13 coordinated bomb explosions carried out at the behest of international terrorist fugitive Dawood Ibrahim shook Bombay [renamed Mumbai later] on 12 March 1993, the first of its kind resulting 257 fatalities and 717 injuries.

The bombs were planted by his henchmen Tiger and Yakub – whose second name is Memon – the sect to which Dawood himself belongs to.

On the basis of India’s Apex court ruling, the Maharashtra state government executed Yakub Memon, on 30 July 2015.

Harvard educated Metro House boss Tejani was arrested in the 1993 serial bomb-blast case as one of the persons who funded the blasts.

The prosecution opposed his bail.

In a simple move, Mumbai Port Trust obliged Tejani by creating a fake lease deed that became operational from 1991 to hide the 1993 stigma.


Depending on the political equations in Maharashtra and the links of its underworld dons, top cops’ careers end up stinking or smell of roses.

Here are examples.

In May 2016, IPS officer Atulchandra Kulkarni assumed charge as the new chief of Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) – which – for all purposes is a posting of little consequence – these days.

Kulkarni replaced Vivek Phansalkar. The latter was transferred to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).

In January, he had been promoted to the rank of additional director general (ADG) of police – and thus came to possess the same rank as Datta Padsalgikar, currently Commissioner of Police.

Said to have serious differences with current Commissioner of Police Padsalgikar, Kulkarni had set his eyes on the post of Special Police Commissioner. He said as much in SMS messages to his friends in the press.

It was at that point that the athletic Padsalgikar handed Kulkarni – what Mumbai media hacks call the “French letter” posting of ATS Chief.

Incidentally, Padsalgikar has a Master’s degree in French literature.

But CM Devendra Fadnavis shot such plans down.


The earlier CP – Ahmad Javed had taken over the post from another controversial cop Rakesh Maria.

Incidentally, Javed is India’s top diplomat in Saudi Arabia – where Islamic agent provocateur par excellence – Zakir Naik is ensconced.

The same Mumbai police officers are play acting – saying it is trying to nab Naik!

An Olive Branch For Gurmeher Kaur?

A young girl student of Delhi University from Chandigarh – daughter of Kargil martyr Captain ‘Harry’ Mandeep Singh – has been prominently featured on television screens and newspapers’ front pages saying she was threatened of rape and murder by right wing political outfits [read ABVP, RSS, et al].

If and when Gurmeher Kaur provides truthful and straight answers to the following queries, all of India must support her wholeheartedly:

Must read: https://haritsv.wordpress.com/2017/02/25/justice-for-none-1/

  1. How did you receive the rape/death threats? Were they sent by SMS, phone call [on landline/mobile] and/or by post and/or whispered into ear while walking and/or through cat-calling from the street below your residence?
  2. Could you please specify time and date of the issuance of the above threat?
  3. How did you know that the threats were issued by right wing political activists [ABVP, RSS, BJP, etc]?
  4. Since you are sure that such threats were indeed issued by the ABVP and allied organisations, did you prefer a police complaint? As you have termed those expressing a contrarian opinion as vile trolls, could you specify how do you propose to take legal action against them instead of using/abusing/misusing the media?
  5. If you have indeed preferred a police complaint, could you kindly specify the police station?
  6. If the answer to #5 is in the affirmative, kindly specify as to when you registered your complaint. Did you ask for the registration of a First Information Report [FIR]? Did police officials ask for supporting evidence for the serious charges of rape and murder threats by known/unknown persons made against you?
  7. Do you believe that India is being hoisted on the legal and constitutional petards by inimical forces?

  8. As you seem to be sure of the political identities of those who issued threats, can you pick up the perpetrators in a line-up?

ஜல்லிக்கட்டுப் போராட்டம் சசிகலாவின் சதிவலை வேலையா? – 3

விரைவில் தமிழக சட்ட சபை கலைக்கப்பட்டு தேர்தல்கள் வரும் இன்றியமையாத நிலையை ஜல்லிக்கட்டு மீதான தடையை நீக்கக் கோரிய போராட்டத்தின் அவலமான முடிவு ஏற்படுத்தி உள்ளது.

புத்திசாலிக் கிரிமினல்கள் ஏதேனும் ஒரு தவறைச் செய்து மாட்டிக் கொள்வார்கள்.

சசிகலாவும், அவரைச் சுற்றியுள்ள மன்னார்குடிச் சதிகார மாஃபியா கும்பலும் அப்படி 3 தவறுகளைச் செய்து மாட்டிக்கொண்டுள்ளன.


எந்தவித உயிலும் படிக்கப்படாமல், சசிகலா – மறைந்த ஜெயலலிதாவின் இல்லமான வேதா நிலையத்தில் தங்கி தமிழகத்தை ஆட்டிப் படைத்து வருகிறார்.

உயில் இல்லாமல் அவர் அங்கு தங்க யார் அனுமதித்தார்கள் என்ற கேள்வியைப் பலர் எழுப்பினார்கள். விடை சொல்லப்படவில்லை.
அக்கேள்வி விரைவில் நீதிமன்றங்களில் எழுப்பப்படும். அன்று பாடு திண்டாட்டமாகி விடும்.


பிரதமர் முதல், தமிழக ஆளுனர் முதல், தமிழக சட்டசபையின் எதிர்கட்சித் தலைவர் உட்பட இந்திய அரசியல் சட்டப்படி மக்களுக்குப் பதில் சொல்லும் பொறுப்பிலுள்ள யாரையும் அப்போலோ மருத்துவ மனையில் ஜெயலலிதா சிகிச்சை பெற்றபோது அவரைச்சந்திக்க அனுமதி வழங்கப்படவில்லை. அந்த நிலையில் ஜெயலலிதா இடைத் தேர்தல் விஷயத்தில் வேட்பாளர்களைத் தேர்வு செய்து, அதற்கான அனுமதியை கை நாட்டு வைத்து அளித்தார் எனக் கூறிய விஷயம் சசிகலாவை சிறைக்கு அனுப்ப வல்ல சம்பவம். உயில் இருப்பது கூறப்படவில்லை. இருந்தால் அதில் கை நாட்டு செல்லாது. செல்லும் என வாதிட்டால், நீதிமன்றத்தில் அப்படி ஒரு ஆவணம் இருப்பதாகச் சொன்னால் அது பல்லை இளித்து விடும்.


இதை எல்லாம் மறைக்க ஜல்லிக்கட்டு கேட்டு மக்கள் போராட்டம் என்ற கூத்தை தமிழகத்தில் இந்தியாவின் எதிரி சக்திகள் உதவியுடன் சசிகலா, நடராஜன் மற்றும் அவர்களது குழுவிலுள்ளவர்கள் நிகழ்த்தினார்கள். சென்னை மெரீனா கடற்கரையில் கூடியிருந்த மக்கள் கூட்டம், “தானாக உருவான மக்கள் எழுச்சி” உருவாக்கிய கும்பல் என்பது கட்டுக் கதை. சென்னையின் மெரீனா கடற்கரையின் தெற்கு எல்லையில் காவல்துறை தலைமை பீடம், வடக்கில் ஆட்சிக் கட்டிலான புனித ஜார்ஜ் கோட்டை. இந்த இரண்டு அமைப்புக்களின் கண்களின் மண்ணைத் தூவி சில லட்சம் மக்கள் சென்னையில் கூடி தலைநகரை “தலை-நரக”மாக்கினார்கள் என்பதை இரண்டு காதுகளிலும் பூங்கொத்தைச் சொருகிக் கொண்டவர்கள் கூட நம்ப மாட்டார்கள். நடராஜன் போன்ற சகுனிகளின் பேராசை மிகுந்த அரசியல் சூதாட்டத்திற்கு ஏமாந்த தமிழக இளைஞர்கள் உருட்டப்பட்ட, பின்பு காயமடைந்த, இறுதியில் பெயர் கெட்ட பகடைக்காய்களானார்கள்.

சசிகலா-நடராஜன் தலைமை தாங்கும் மன்னார்குடி மாஃபியாக் கும்பலுக்குச் சாதகமாக செய்திகள் உருவாக காவல்துறையின் பல பிரிவுகள் ஜல்லிக்கட்டு கேட்டுக் கூடியிருந்த இளைஞர்களை அடித்து உதைத்து, பொதுச் சொத்துக்களுக்கு நாசம் விளைவித்து, ஒரு சில இடங்களில் குடிசைகளையும் வண்டிகளையும் கொளுத்தி, பத்திரிக்கையாளர்களைத் தாக்கி, அதைக் காவாலித் துறையாக்கின. அது நடந்தும், பல உண்மைகளை, தமிழகத்தின் முக்கியமான ஊடகங்கள் வெளியிடாமல் இருப்பது செய்யும் தொழிலுக்கு இழைக்கும் துரோகம். உண்ணும் வீட்டிற்கு செய்யும் ரெண்டகம். அது என்னொரு வெட்கக்கேடு.

சசிகலாவின் சதி வேலை தமிழக அரசியலை சகதி ஆக்கிவிட்டது.

உள்துறையைத் தன் வசம் வைத்திருக்கும் முதல்வர் ஓ பன்னீர்செல்வம் ஆளும் தகுதி இல்லாதவர் என்பது தெளிவாகி விட்டது. ஒரு புறம் அவர் சசிகலாவின் நட்டுவாங்கத்திற்கேற்ப குனிந்தபடி நடனமாடுகிறார். மறுபுறம் டெல்லி அரசியல்வாதிகளின் சித்து வேலைகளுக்கு நெளிந்து கொடுத்து நல்லபெயர் வாங்குவதாக எண்ணி, எளனத்திற்குரியவராகிவிட்டார்.  அவர் கையில் தமிழக ஆட்சி இருப்பது குரங்கின் கையில் பூ மாலை இருப்பதற்குச் சமம்.

குறுக்கு வழியில் அ இ அ தி மு க சட்ட மன்ற உறுப்பினர்களை விலைக்கு வாங்கி ஒரு பேச்சுக்கு ஸ்டாலின் முதல்வராக வாய்ப்பு உண்டு என்று கூடச் சொல்லலாம். ஆனால், அப்படி ஒரு சம்பவம் நிகழ்ந்தால், அது அவருக்கும் சரி, தமிழகத்திற்கும் சரி, நாட்டின் ஒருமைப்பட்டிற்கும் சரி, பெரும் குந்தகமாக முடிந்து விடும்.

இனி மறு தேர்தல் ஒன்று தான் முடிவு.

ஜல்லிக்கட்டு போட்டி தமிழகத்திற்குத் தேவை என்பதில் சந்தேகமில்லை. அதைத் தடை செய்ய PETA பொன்ற வெளி நாட்டின் கூலிப்படை இயக்கங்கள் செயல்படுவது நாட்டிற்கு இழைக்கப்படும் துரோகம் என்பது தெளிவு.

இந்தியப் பசு இனத்தை அழித்து, வெளி நாட்டு ஜெர்ஸி மாடுகளை பாரதத்திற்குள் நுழைத்து, அந்த நச்சுத்தன்மை உள்ள பாலால் நோய்களைப் பரப்பி, அதை குணப்படுத்த மேலும் விஷத்தன்மை உள்ள மருந்துகளை விற்று, ஈனப்பிழைப்பு நடத்தும் பிண வியாபாரிக் கும்பலின் அடாவடி வியாபாரம் இரும்புக் கரம் கொண்டு அடக்கப்படவேண்டும். இந்தியப் பசுக்களின் கழிவுகளான சாணமும் கோமியமும் சிறந்த உரங்கள், பூச்சிக்கொல்லிகள். ஆனால், அவற்றுக்குப் பதிலாக விஷத்தன்மை உடைய ரசாயன உரங்கள் , மருந்துகள், நமது தாய் மண்ணணுக்கு மலட்டுத் தன்மையை ஏற்படுத்துகின்றன.

ஆனால் அச்செயலை நிகழ்த்த பின்பற்றப்பட்ட முறை முட்டாள்தனத்தின் உச்சகட்டத்தின் துச்சகட்டம்.

ஜனவரி 12 2017 அன்றே சசிகலா ஜெயலலிதாவுக்கு இழைத்த துரோகத்தின் பயங்கரத்தை வெளிப்படுத்தினேன்.

அது முதல் “சசிகலா விரைவில் முதல்வர் ஆவார்” என்ற கூச்சல் திடரென உரக்கமான நிசப்தமாக மாறியது.

ஜல்லிக்கட்டு போட்டியைக் கோரி போராட்டம் ஜனவரி 20 அன்று நடு முதுகில் முளைத்த கை போல் உருவாயிற்று. ஜெயலலிதாவின் திடீர், மர்மம் நிறைந்த மரணத்தில் சசிகலாவுக்கும் நடராஜனுக்கும் உள்ள தொடர்பை மறைப்பதற்காக மட்டுமே இது ஏற்படுத்தப்பட்டது என எழுதினேன்.

அப்போதே, இதன் முடிவு இப்படித் தான் இருக்கும் என இக்கட்டுரைத் தொடரில் தெளிவாகச் சுட்டிக் காண்பிக்கப்பட்டது.

சசிகலாவைக் குறுக்கு வழியில் முதல்வராக்கும் கேவலமான பணியைத் துவக்கிய நடராஜன், அந்தச் சதித்திட்டம் வெற்றிபெற இந்திய ஒருமைப்பாட்டிற்கு எதிரான விடுதலைப் புலிகளுடன் இணைந்து நாசவேலையில் இறங்கியுள்ள பாகிஸ்தானின் உளவு ஸ்தாபனம் ஐ எஸ் ஐ, இஸ்லாம் என்ற மதத்தை இழிவு படுத்தும் ஐ எஸ் ஐ எல் ஆகிய தீய சகதிகளுடன் கைகோர்த்துச் செயல்படுகிறார் என்ற குற்றச்சாட்டை அக்கட்டுரையில் வைத்தேன்.

சசிகலா முதல்வராக்கச் செய்யப்படும் சதி வேலை தான் ஜல்லிக்கட்டு போட்டிக் கோரிக்கைப்போராட்டம் என 5 நாட்களாக எழுதி வருகிறேன். ஆதாரங்கள்:



சசிகலா அ இ அ தி மு க வின் பொதுச் செயலாளராக “ஒரு மனதாகத் தேர்ந்தெடுக்கப்பட்டார்” என்பது அரசியல் வெட்கக்கேட்டின் உச்சகட்டம், என ஒரு மாதம் முன்னரே எழுதினேன்.

அவரை தமிழகத்தின்மாற்றாந்தாய்என தமிழ் மக்களின் கருத்தின்படி எழுதினேன்.

இரண்டு மாதங்கள் முன்பே ஜெயலலிதாவின் மறைவுக்குப் பின் தமிழகத்தில் அரசியல் ஆட்டம் காணும் எனக் கூறினேன்.

அதுவே நடந்துள்ளது.

நான் சொன்னபடியே நிகழ்ச்சிகள் நடந்தேறி வருகின்றன என்பதால் இக்கட்டுரையாளனுக்கு வந்திருப்பது மகிழ்ச்சி அல்ல, மிகுந்த மன வேதனை.

2013 முதல் சோனியா அம்மையார் பாகிஸ்தானின் உளவாளி என்றும், சசிகலா தி மு க தலைவர் கலைஞரின் கைப்பாவை என்றும் ஆதாரங்களுடன் குற்றச்சாட்டுக்களை அடுக்கி வருகிறேன்.

1967-இல் திராவிடக் கட்சிகள் தமிழகத்தில் ஆட்சிக்கு வந்தன. அன்று முதல் தேசியம் தமிழகத்தில் மடியத் துவங்கியது.

மறைந்த முதல்வர் எம் ஜி ஆர் இந்தியாவின் ஒருமைப்பாட்டை நம்பினார். அவர் உயிரோடு இருந்த காலம் வரை நிலை கட்டுக்குள் இருந்தது.

1991 இல் தி மு க ஆட்சி இந்தியாவின் எதிரிகளுடன் கைகோர்த்துச் செயல்பட்டதற்காக கலைக்கப்பட்டது.

அதே வருடம் ராஜீவ் கொலையும் நிகழ்ந்தது.

அதன் பின்னணியில் உள்ளது சோனியா அம்மையார் தான் என நான் 2010 முதல் குற்றச்சாட்டை அடுக்கி வருகிறேன்.

அதன் லேடஸ்டான நிலையை 8 மாதங்கள் முன்பு வெளியிட்டேன்.

தமிழகத்தில் இனி என்னென்ன அவலங்கள் நிகழப்போகிறதோ!

ஜல்லிக்கட்டுப் போராட்டம் சசிகலாவின் சதிவலை வேலையா? – 2

ஜல்லிக்கட்டுப் போராட்டம் தேச விரோத சக்திகளின் நாசவேலை!

ஜல்லிக்கட்டுத் தடைக்கெதிரான போராட்டத்தை மறைந்து நடத்தும் தேச விரோத சக்திகள் இந்திய ஒருமைப்பட்டின் தாடையில் இரத்தகாயத்தை ஏற்படுத்தி விட்டன.

இக்கட்டுரை எழுதப்படும் வேளையில் ஜல்லிக்கட்டு நடத்தப்பட ஒரு அவசரச் சட்டம் தயாராகி உள்ளதாக செய்திகள் வெளியாயின.

மீண்டும் உச்ச நீதிமன்றத்தில் PETA தடை கோருமா?

அப்படி ஒரு பிராது நீதிமன்றத்தில் தாக்கல் செய்யப்பட்டால், அது ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளப்படுமா?

அது ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளப்பட்டு, மீண்டும் தடை உத்திரவு பிறப்பிக்கப்பட்டால் தமிழகத்தில் வன்முறை தலைவிரித்தாடும்!.

அது நடந்தால், தமிழகம் இன்னொரு காஷ்மீராகி விடும்.

சுருக்கமாக, இது மக்களை மாக்களாக்கி செயற்கையாக உருவாக்கப்பட்ட அரசியல் சதியின் வெளிப்பாடு!

ஜல்லிக்கட்டுப் போராட்டம் சசிகலாவை முதல்வராக்க பின்னப்பட்ட சதி வலை என விரிவாக, ஆதாரங்களுடன் செய்தி வெளியிடப்பட்டது.

சென்னை மெரீனா கடற்கரையில், தமிழகக் காவல்துறை தலைமை அலுவலகத்திற்கும், மாநிலத்தின் ஆட்சிக் கேந்திரமான புனித ஜார்ஜ் கோட்டைக்கும் இடையே உள்ள காமராஜர் சாலையில், பிரிவினைவாத கோஷங்கள் உரக்க ஒலிக்கத் துவங்கி விட்டன.

இந்தியாவின் முன்னாள் பிரதமர் ராஜீவ் காந்தியைக் கொல்ல உத்திரவிட்ட, லட்சக்கணக்கான அப்பாவித் தமிழ் மக்கள் ஈழத்தில் கொல்லப்படக் காரணமாக இருந்த “விடுதலைப் புலி பயங்கரவாதி” பிரபாகரனுக்குத் தியாகி அரிதாரம் பூசப்பட்ட ஒரு அவலக் காட்சி அரங்கேறியது. அத்துடன் “தமிழ் ஈழம் வேண்டும்” என்ற கூச்சலும் கிளம்பி உள்ளது.

PETAஎன்ற மிருக உரிமைகளுக்காகப் போராடும் தன்னார்வு அமைப்பின் பெயர், அமெரிக்காவில் ஈடுபடும் கேலிக்கூத்தான செயல்களால் “ரிப்பேராகி” நாறுகிறது என்ற செய்தி ஆதாரங்களுடன் வெளிவந்து விட்டது.

ஆதாரம்: https://t.co/B6UT1CbqWr

மிருகங்களுக்கெதிரான கொடுமைகளைத் தடுக்கிறோம் பேர்விழி என்று கிளம்பிய PETA ஏமாந்த சோணகிரிகளின் காதுகளில் பூ சுற்றி, சில்லறை சேற்கும் ஒரு சகதித்தனமான சதி கும்பல்!

பாரதத்தில் கிட்டத்தட்ட 60% மக்கள் புலால் உணவு உண்பவர்கள். பசு மாடுகள், ஆடுகள், கோழிகள், மீன்கள் என பல தரப்பட்ட அசைவ உணவு வகைகளை எல்லா விதமான சமய நம்பிக்கை உடையோரும் இந்தியாவில் உண்கிறார்கள்.

அதற்கு இரையாகும் மிருகங்கள், தங்களை “வெட்டிக்கொன்று உண்டுவிடுங்கள்” என விண்ணப்பம் செய்கின்றனவா? அல்லது கசாப்புக் கடைக்காரர்கள் கருணை அடிப்படையில் தங்களது தொழிலை நடத்துகிறார்களா?

எத்தனைக் கசாப்புக்கடைகள் முன்பு PETA தொடர்ந்து ஆர்பாட்டம் நடத்துகிறது?

அந்த அமைப்பிற்காக ஆஜராகும் வழக்கறிஞர்கள் சுத்த சைவ உணவை மட்டும் உண்டு, பால் கூட [அதுவும் ஒரு விதத்தில் அசைவமே] அருந்தாத மூலையில் முடங்கி உள்ள முனிவர்களா?

எங்கோ இருக்கும் விஷமிகள் இது மாதிரியான கிலிமஞ்சாரோ அமைப்புக்களை உருவாக்கி, உலகில் விஷக்கிருமிகள் போல் பரவ விட்டு அதில் நயவஞ்சக நரித்தனமான பிழைப்பு நடத்தும் நாசவேலைக்கார அரக்கர்கள் கும்பல் என்பதில் யாருக்காவது சந்தேகம் இருக்க முடியுமா?

அபிஷேக் மனு ஸிங்க்வி போன்ற மூத்த காங்கிரஸ் தலைவர்களும் வழக்கறிஞர்களும் இந்த அமைப்பிற்காக ஆஜராகிறார்கள். அவர் பால் கூடக் குடிக்கத் தெரியாத பாப்பாவா? ஜல்லிக்கட்டு பற்றிய கட்டுக்கதைகளை இது போன்றவர்கள் புனைந்து பரப்புகிறார்கள். தடை உத்திரவுகளைப் பெற்று, நாட்டில் குழப்பத்தை விளைவிக்கிறார்கள்.

இது போன்ற பணிகளைச் செய்யக் கூடியவை – தேச விரோத சக்திகள் மட்டுமே.

ஆகவே, தேச விரோத சக்திகள், அமைதிப் பூங்காவான தமிழகத்தை இன்னொரு காஷ்மீராக மாற்றச் செய்து வரும் இழி செயல் என்பதற்கான அனைத்து அறிகுறிகளும் உள்ளன.

தமிழ் ஈழத்திற்கும் ஜல்லிக்கட்டுக்கும் இடையே உள்ள சம்பந்தத்தை அமாவாசைக்கும், அப்துல் காதருக்கும் மத்தியில் உள்ள உறவு எனக் கிண்டல் செய்யலாம். ஆனால், அந்தக் கேலிக்கூத்து காவல்துறை தலைமை அலுவலகத்தின் முன்பே அரங்கேறும் அலங்கோலம் அனுமதிக்கப்படுவது மட்டுமல்ல, ஊக்குவிக்கப்படுகிறது!

அதன் உள் நோக்கம் என்ன?

ஜல்லிக்கட்டுப் போட்டியால் காளைகள் வாழும்.

அவை பசுமாடுகளுடன் கூடி, கன்றுகளை உருவாக்கும்.

இந்தியாவிலுள்ள மாடுகளின் பால் ஊட்டச்சத்து மிக்கது. வெளி நாடுகளிலிருந்து இறக்குமதியாகும் ஜெர்ஸி மாடுகள் வழங்கும் பாலால் நோய்கள் பரவுகின்றன என்பதற்கு விஞான ரீதியான ஆதாரங்கள் உள்ளன.

இந்த நோய்களை குணப்படுத்துவதாகக் கூறி ரசாயன மருந்துக் கம்பெனிகள் வெட்கங்கெட்டப் பிழைப்பு நடத்துகின்றன.

இவை எல்லாமே நாட்டுக்குக் கெடுதல் செய்யக்கூடியவை.

ஆனால் அதெல்லாவற்றையும் விட வேறு ஒரு பெரிய அபாயம் உள்ளது.

இந்தியாவின் வட மேற்குப் பகுதியில் உள்ளதாகக் கூறப்பட்டு வந்த காஷ்மீர் பிரச்சனையை ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை விவாதத்திற்குரியதல்ல எனத் தீர்ப்பு வழங்கி 7 ஆண்டுகள் ஆகிவிட்டன.

அந்த ஒரு விஷயத்தை வைத்தே பிழைப்பு நடத்தும் பாகிஸ்தான் ராணுவத்தின் கையூட்டுப் பெறும் கயவத்தனமான தளபதிகளுக்கு இந்தியாவில் சிக்கலை உருவாக்க ஒரு இடம் தேவைப்பட்டது.

ஊருக்கு இளைத்தவன் பிள்ளையார் கோயில் ஆண்டி என்ற ரீதியில், அதற்காகப் பயன்படுத்தப்படுவது தமிழகம்.

இதற்கான திடுக்கிடும் ஆதாரங்கள் உள்ளன!

இதனால் அரசியல் ஆதாயம் பெறும் சசிகலாவைச் சுற்றியுள்ள சிலந்திவலை பின்னிய ருத்திராட்சப் பூனைகள் பின்னணியில் இயங்குகின்றன. ஆனால் நடராஜன் போன்றோரின் பின்னிலிருந்து பாரதத்திற்குப் பாதகம் செய்பவர்கள் யார்?

கதிகலங்க வைக்கும் ஆதாரங்கள், நாளை!

India doesn’t care about Davos?

Despite keen global interest in the after effects of India’s massive demonetisation, Bharat is under-represented at the world’s top decision makers’ talk-fest at Davos, Switzerland where the annual World Economic Forum [WEF] is underway. A virtual “B” grade team has been sent officially.

A tongue-in-cheek look at the phenomenon:

By Lazy Fly*

I was surprised upon spotting India’s greatest political fixer Maha Guru at the poolside of the 5-star Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park the other day.

“I thought you would be at Davos, doing deals while skiing in the Alps,” I said, noticing the man was without any cocktail drink – his usual trademark.

“Why would I go to Davos, when I can make the deals from here at a very minor fraction of the price?” The query was asked in a sort of squeaky voice – something different from his regular, baritone.

The ‘fixer’ has a spitting image of the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s flunkey, Makhan Lal Fotedar.

The political lobbyist is known as MG which is an acronym of Maha Guru and/or Minimum Guarantee. “The importance of the name changes its forms depending on the time, occasion, location and operation,” the man loves to tell those foolish enough to listen. Often, found citing own aphorisms terming them as the Holy Minds’ Voices, he also referred to with the sobriquet –HMV.

His predictions are of the Nostradamus variety. They are puzzling and can be indicated as prophesies of any eventuality. Thanks to his somewhat archaic language, he also is derisively called Long Playing Old Record [LPOR], cassette tape [CT] video-cassette-disc [VCD]. His actions have earned him other epithets. Some of them are political predicament predictor [PPP], fixer-of the deadly instigation [FDI] and first-class rascally abomination [FCRA].

“You have a sore throat or something? You sound different,” I said.

“I am only imitating that wonderful poison lady Sasikala, who has managed to do everything to destroy this state – well almost. But, I am not overdoing it, wiping tears every 17 seconds as she did during her inaugural speech,” FCRA said in his regular voice.

“I thought your friends can finance any venture. Besides, entry is free at Davos, I hear,” I remarked.

“Yes, it is free to members who pay the annual WEF membership fee of US$ 585,000 [approximately INR 4 crores]! Entry is free in this hotel too. But try ordering a cup of coffee and you will know the truth! But, that is nothing when compared to the costs at Davos. Besides, my friends have better uses for a tidy sum like Rs.4 crores,” LPOR observed.

“VVIP Attendees include United Kingdom’s ‘liberal conservative’ Prime Minister Theresa May, China’s political boss Xi Jinping and US hedge fund headman, Anthony Scaramucci. The last mentioned person is the chief financial advisor to Donald Trump, scheduled to be sworn in on January 20 2017. Surely, India can swing a few deals at Davos,” I said.

“The ladies and gentlemen at Davos are far cleverer than the jokers we usually send from here like that racketeer lawyer Chidambaram. Persons investing in the British Pound didn’t expect Theresa to move mountains or soften the Brexit blow. Hence they moved their investment out of that piece of hard currency causing a minor slump in its sterling value, according to implications in a BBC report,” came the retort.

I tried another tack.

“China’s Xi is expected to make conciliatory noises towards Trump taking a cue from the idea propounded by WEF founder Klaus Martin Schwab. The important advice to world leaders: from Schwab: “Overcome the present mood of divisiveness and negativism.” Xi indicated he has a smooth communication channel with Trump and team. The Chinese president has expressed willingness to meet members of the US president-elect’s team whilst in Davos,” I pointed out.

Trump hates China, revealed a report filed by Guardian’s correspondent Ben Jacobs a year ago. But, Trump actually can do nothing much against China because he owes the dragon nation a lot of money. The credible New York Times has exposed that most of Trump’s bravado speeches are hot air as did the CNN. Trump loves the media the way a snake would love a mongoose. Now do not get long in the tooth and ask me who is the snake and who the mongoose is,” CT argued and began laughing.

I did not think of that crack as much of a joke.

“Let us get serious, MG. The primary concerns at Davos would be Weapons of Mass Destruction [WMD], Brexit, collapse of Euro as a currency, further break-up of the European Union [EU] – to mention just a few. After the monumental demonetisation and the absence of any worthwhile protest against it in India, it would surely attract a lot of attention,” I intervened.

“You are wet behind your ears. Notwithstanding the brouhaha over the 2 month old demonetization drama, India is very low in the list of priorities at Davos. The official delegation, one can safely say, is a ‘low level’ category. The attendees are Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari and Nirmala Sitharaman, Niti Aayog’s Arvind Panagariya, DIPP Secretary Ramesh Abhishek and Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. Have you ever seen Gadkari making any intelligent financial statement? The only reason he is still surviving in politics is because at the instance of the RSS, auditor-journalist Gurumurthy gave him a clean chit a few years ago,” VCD spat his words.

“You are obviously referring to the NDTV report which obliquely made fun of both Gadkari and Gurumurthy. But since then, NDTV has been relentlessly assailed by Gurumurthy and those close to him,” I said.

“You journos are jokers. Former Union Minister Arun Shourie had termed business tycoon Dhirubhai Ambani a thief and a smuggler in the 80’s. Let me quote facts here. Rediff.com put out a story exposing Shourie. The operative sentences read thus: Shourie claimed he first learnt about Dhirubhai through the articles of his former colleague S Gurumurthy, Chennai-based chartered accountant and convenor of the Swadeshi Jagran Manch. The SJM, an organisation espousing the cause of economic nationalism, is affiliated to the Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh, the ideological parent of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. Shourie claimed the point of most of the articles written by Gurumurthy during 1986 and 1987 — many of which he had co-authored – “was that Reliance had done something in excess of what it had been permitted to do: that it had set up capacities in excess of what had been licensed, that it was producing in excess of those capacities. [1] Today, Arun Shourie, the senior journalist, who once enjoyed trappings of power as a junior minister in the earlier incarnation of the NDA under Vajpayee, slams Modi as a dictator. The same Shourie went out of his way to support Modi and his reported ‘Presidential form of government’ during the 2014 parliamentary elections. The politicians are shameless, all of us know. But, are journalists really justified in blaming politicians when they themselves are eating their own words? Having worked for World Bank in the past, Shourie is an economist. Gurumurthy is yet to attack the likes of Ambani, but, praises the BJP, which does business with Ambanis in an unhindered fashion.” The fixer’s speech was punctuated by guffaws.

This was a clear digression. I dragged it back to Davos.

“Here were talking of Davos and you shoved Dhirubhai into it,” I snapped.

“OK. From India’s immediate neighbourhood, apart from China, other attendees are Pakistan President Nawaz Sharif, Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina and Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Former Pakistani Army Chief Raheel Sharif is another attendee. His costs are being met by Saudi Arabia. Raheel heads an international force to tackle ‘Islamic terrorism’ funded by the House of Saud and 36 other Islamic nations most of which clandestinely support ISIS! Double standards are a global phenomenon, boyo!” The Guru’s tone was highly derisive.

“But Davos is important, isn’t it?”

“Depends on which side you are on. There is the financial buccaneer billionaire George Soros. Following Donald Trump’s election, billionaire investors George Soros lost close to a billion dollars. Soros had supported then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the campaign. At that time, he had said the methods of ISIS and Trump were different, but the effect – one to threaten the world into submission – was the same. Trump-friendly hedge fund owners earned a windfall on their stock portfolios. Billionaire Carl Icahn made upwards of $700 million on November 9, while John Paulson reaped over $463 million on the same day, said the Fortune. But, the so-called smart man who had caused a run on the British Pound in the early 90’s, clocked a massive loss. The billionaire investor wrote an opinion piece, saying that “open societies are in crisis” Allow me to quote him verbatim: “Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies,” he wrote for Project-Syndicate, “from fascist dictatorships to ‘mafia’ states—are on the rise.” “Because elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations, electorates have become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism. I find the current moment in history very painful” because is a “would-be dictator” and a “con artist”. It is a clear case griping due to the legendary sour-grapes-trait. Shourie didn’t get to be FM, so he is angry. Soros is in sorrow because his protégé Hillary didn’t get to be President. In his interview, Shourie cited the late journalist Cho Ramaswamy’s views on VP Singh, one of Shourie’s heroes of the 80’s. The exact quotes from Shourie: I supported V.P. Singh despite the warnings of Chandrasekhar, who told Cho Ramaswamy that ‘you tell your friend that he is supporting Singh but he’s a very dangerous man, he believes in nothing’. But at that time, we had so many cases against us in the Express so I told Cho there is a proverb that when your house is on fire you cannot wait for Ganges water. Cho said to me, are you sure it’s not petrol? I would rather like to believe that he is somewhat jealous of the attention Cho got while being alive and also posthumously. Talking of petrol, one remembers that the Islamic brand of terrorism is all about petrodollars,” the deal-maker spoke in a bitter voice.

“Are you saying Davos is mere a talking rendezvous in salubrious Swiss surroundings, in a town that has a little more than 11,000 registered residents and nothing more?”

At that precise moment the waiter arrived with a strange looking cup with a liquid that seemed to have floating white pebbles.

“Stop looking like someone who just saw the abominable snowman called Yeti, Lazy. This is Yulmu, a kind of Korean tea, which is good for health in every way. Yulmu has high protein content, is healthier alternative to a cup of coffee in the morning and what you see floating like pea-sized wooden beads are exactly that – made of a plant called Job’s tears, whose output accords intoxication – more than the stimulant value of tea or coffee. Its genetic names are Coix lacryma-jobi and lacryma-jobi. Coix lacryma-jobi and its variant ma-yuen are harvested as a cereal crops. The output has a soft shell, and is used medicinally in parts of Asia. The material has shells that were used to make rosary beads for use in monasteries in southern Europe. In Korea, the grain comes along with powdered walnuts and almonds. When I heard that this hotel had added it to its menu I specially came here. I have to learn a thing or two about Korea – especially in the light of one of the top industrial houses of South Korea is in the dock in Seoul. That company has a major manufacturing plant in the outskirts of here.”

I somehow felt that the Guru was being evasive about something.

At that moment two men accosted the fixer. The persons were in complete contrast of each other. One wore a single cotton dhoti, a cotton shirt that seemed as though it needed ironing. He also did not wear slippers. The other gentleman was nattily dressed in an outlandish 3-piece suit.

“Friends of yours?” I asked.

“Let me introduce them. The man in the suit is a representative of the family of Goyals who once part-owned this hotel alongside ITC before conflicts of interests resulted in a change in management. The other poorly dressed man is Vaikundarajan, who owns a huge mining empire and a television channel. In the past, the Goyals had a problem or two with the Enforcement Directorate and the Union Finance Ministry about their mineral exports. Vaikundarajan is being accused of stealing India’s rare earths from Tuticorin district worth over Rs.1 lakh crores. This deal is worth several billions of dollars. And that is happening right here and not in an expensive place like Davos. The after effects of this deal can affect the global economy in more ways than one. I am helping them exchange notes. When I say notes, I do not mean the Rs.2000 type, mind you. You will not be part of this meeting, so better run away,” the Guru said.

As I began walking away I saw a flat nosed lady with mongoloid features join the motley crowd of three and wondered whether she was from a South Korean industrial house as hinted by the Guru.


Operative excerpt from the Rediff.com story:

1986 was a crucial year for Dhirubhai. He suffered a stroke in February that year. A few months later, the Express began publishing a series of articles by Shourie and Gurumurthy, which meticulously detailed a host of ways in which the Indira Gandhi government had gone out of its way to assist the Ambanis.

One article was on the subject of how the Reliance group imported “spare parts”, “components” and “balancing equipment” of textile manufacturing machinery to nearly double its production capacities. The article provocatively claimed the Ambanis had “smuggled” in a plant.

Another story detailed how companies registered in the tax haven, Isle of Man, with ridiculous names like Crocodile Investments, Iota Investments and Fiasco Investments had purchased Reliance shares at one-fifth their market prices.

Curiously, most of these firms were controlled by a clutch of Non-Resident Indians who had the same surname, Shah.

Though the then Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee had to change a reply he gave in Parliament on the investments made by these firms, an inquiry conducted by the Reserve Bank of India could not find any evidence of wrongdoing.

Yet another article detailed how the group had been the beneficiary of a “loan mela” — a number of banks had loaned funds to more than 50 firms that had all purchased debentures issued by Reliance Industries.

Vishwanath Pratap Singh was one of the few politicians who took on the Ambanis. In May 1985, as finance minister in Rajiv Gandhi’s government, he suddenly shifted imports of PTA from the OGL (Open General Licence) category. At that juncture, Reliance needed to import this product to manufacture polyester filament yarn.

It was found that the group had “persuaded” a number of banks to open letters of credit that would allow it import almost one full year’s requirement of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) on the eve of the issuance of the government notification changing the category under which PTA could be imported.

It was hardly a coincidence that soon after V P Singh fell out with Rajiv Gandhi, various tax agencies of the Indian government raided the premises of the Express group.

Things got even more difficult for the Ambanis after Singh became Prime Minister in December 1989.

In 1990, government-owned financial institutions like the Life Insurance Corporation and the General Insurance Corporation stonewalled attempts by the Reliance group to acquire managerial control over Larsen & Toubro, one of India’s largest construction and engineering companies.

Sensing defeat, the Ambanis resigned from the board of the company after incurring large losses. Dhirubhai, who had become L&T chairman in April 1989, had to quit his post to make way for D N Ghosh, former chairman of the State Bank of India.

The mid-eighties were also a period during which the Reliance group got locked in a bitter turf battle with Bombay Dyeing headed by Nusli Wadia.

The two corporate groups were producing competing products — Reliance was manufacturing PTA and Bombay Dyeing, di-methyl terephthalate (DMT).

Wadia lost the battle and reportedly became the source of information for many of the Express articles against the Ambanis written by Shourie and Gurumurthy.

In 1985, the Mumbai police had accused a general manager in a Reliance group company of conspiring to kill Wadia, a charge that was never established in a court of law.

Eight years later, a newspaper owned by the Ambanis would accuse Wadia of illegally holding two passports and played up the fact that he was Mohammed Ali Jinnah’s grandson.

By this time, Shourie had built his bridges with the Ambanis and the newspaper concerned, the Observer of Business and Politics, would carry a regular column written by Shourie for which he was suitably remunerated.

In May 2002, as Union minister for divestment in the Vajpayee government, Shourie presided over the sale of 26 per cent of the equity capital of the former public sector company, Indian Petrochemicals Corporation Limited (IPCL), to the Reliance group in May, the same year.
