India conveys to Moscow its opposition to Russia-Pakistan military exercise

Ahead of their annual bilateral Summit, India has conveyed its opposition to Russia over its joint exercise with Pakistan, a nation which “sponsors and practices terrorism as a matter of State policy”, saying it will create further problems. “We have conveyed our views to the Russian side that military cooperation with Pakistan which is a State that sponsors and practices terrorism as a matter of State policy is a wrong approach and it will only create further problems,” Indian Ambassador to Moscow Pankaj Saran said in an interview to Russian news agency Ria Novosti.
Saran’s remarks come ahead of the bilateral meeting in Goa on Saturday between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who will be arriving in India on October 14. Apart from bilateral Summit, Putin will attend the Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa(BRICS) meet on October 16. India has been communicating its unhappiness to Russia over its joint military exercises with Pakistan. However, these concerns have been played down by the Russians who maintain that they hold similar military drills with other countries of the region as well.
Saran also said, “There are some burning issues before the world today which the BRICS countries will certainly address and this includes the question of terrorism and the threat of terrorism faced by all the countries in the BRICS group. So this will be a major item of discussion during the Summit apart from the regional conflicts and the global situation.” On Indo-Russia ties, the envoy said as far as India’s relations with Russia are concerned, the two countries share a special and privileged strategic partnership.

PM Modi proved to the world that India is no longer weak: Rajnath Singh

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said Prime Minster Narendra Modi proved to the world that ‘India is no longer weak.’ Welcoming Modi during the Dussehra event at Lucknow’s Aishbagh, Rajnath hailed the PM for proving India’s strength to the world. Rajnath’s statement can be seen in the context of the surgical strikes the Indian Army conducted in PoK, destroying terror launch pads.
Speaking at the event, the Home Minister said that Lucknow, which is his Sabha constituency, represents the composite culture of the country. He said the city is the ‘karmabhoomi’ of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Breaking from the past PM Modi attended the Ramleela in Lucknow. The move is significant as the Uttar Pradesh goes to polls next year.
During his address, the PM said terrorism is the biggest enemy of humanity. “Jatayu was the first one who fought against terrorism. If a country of 125 crore keep an eye on every terrorist activity, they will never succeed. After 1992 Mumbai blasts, US said that terror is nothing but a law and order problem in our country. But after 9/11 they came around and started talking about terrorism,” he said.

Narendra Modi’s Dussehra address: No mention of surgical strike but a veiled warning to Pakistan

Narendra Modi’s Dussehra address: No mention of surgical strike but a veiled warning to Pakistan

PM Modi saved himself from a spree of sharp criticisms by abstaining from mentioning the surgical strikes in his address. There were speculations that the PM would mention the September 29 strike as Uttar Pradesh is going to polls next year. Had he done so, several fingers would’ve pointed at him for exploiting the issue as a poll plank. However, by saying “India is no longer looked at as a weak country”, Rajnath Singh gave subtle hints that the topic may find its way in election rallies in the coming days.

Modi reiterated his intentions of ridding India of terrorism–a menace that is out to destroy humanity. The PM said that “nobody should be under the impression that they are untouched by terrorism” adding that it is “out to destroy humanity”. His statement that terrorism is a global threat and it has no boundaries and that the global community needs to work together to work against terrorism indicated that his government will be open to carrying out further operations to eradicate terrorists in future.

Dawn newspaper tells Pakistan govt in stinging editorial

The Dawn newspaper Wednesday, in an editorial, asked the Pakistani government to remove Almeida’s name from the list and ‘salvage some of its dignity.’“There are times in a news organisation’s history that determine its adherence to the highest principles of journalism — its duty to inform the public objectively, accurately and fearlessly,” the newspaper said. It made it clear that it carried the story only after verification from multiple sources.Dawn said some of the ‘historically significant’ stories from news organisations across the world have been those that were reported while resisting the state. The newspaper said it will continue to defend itself against ‘any allegation of vested interest, false reporting or violation of national security.’
Amnesty International has also called on the Pakistani government to remove travel restrictions on Almeida and to uphold press freedom.

Militants attack Shiite shrine in Kabul

Militants attack Shiite shrine in Kabul

“A number of attackers have targeted people in Karte Sakhi shrine,” said Kabul Police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi, adding, “Police have evacuated dozens of people from the shrine. A number of civilians and police have been injured.” Police also said two grenades had been detonated during the attack.No group has yet claimed responsibility for the assault, which President Ashraf Ghani condemned as a “clear sign of a crime against humanity”. Ghani vowed the government would use its “maximum capacity” to provide security during Ashura, which will be celebrated on Wednesday, and called on all Afghanistan’s sects to “stand firmly against” the country’s enemies.
The threat of attack targeting Shiites was considered particularly serious during Ashura, and many foreign embassies had restricted their staff’s movements until the end of the week in Kabul.
