Omissions by chindu

Chindu categorized this magnanimity as a non-event. No blaring front-page articles or thumping editorials.
The Pioneer > Online Edition : >> PM’s concert in ‘Q’ major
Despite all this evidence, Mr Singh’s Government unlocked Quattrocchi’s UK accounts and enabled him to lay his hands on this ill-gotten wealth. Thereafter, it deliberately goofed up the extradition process when he was arrested in Argentina and now, just before it demits office, it has got Interpol to withdraw the ‘Red Corner Notice’.

It is only natural that Congress would try to shield Sonia's boy-friend, by all means. But I blame the BJP, which, when it was in power for five years at the centre, did little to bring the culprits to book.

Their dreams shattered, aggrieved Moaist supporters vent their frustration in Chindu.

Cancel Water-Boarding 101The military should close its torture school. I know because I graduated from it.
By David J. MorrisPosted Wednesday, April 22, 2009, at 12:20 PM ET

The release of a newly declassified congressional report on Tuesday suggested that some of the brutal interrogation techniques used during the Bush administration were developed in the Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape (or SERE) military training program, which was designed to teach American soldiers how to resist interrogation. In January, David J. Morris detailed his own experiences with SERE. The article is reprinted below.

On his first day in office, President Obama kept his most important campaign promise and began the process of closing Guantanamo. But this eliminates only the most visible part of the U.S. torture bureaucracy. In order to ensure that the atrocities of Guantanamo aren't visited upon the world by future administrations, Obama must also eviscerate the structures that enabled and supported torture. At the top of a long list is the U.S. military's secretive torture school, known as SERE, which stands for Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape.

Founded in the aftermath of the Korean War to train U.S. servicemen to withstand enemy interrogation, the school was central to the development of the notorious "enhanced interrogation techniques" at Guantanamo. It was the SERE program that sent instructors and staff psychologists to Guantanamo shortly after 9/11 and provided the technical expertise on tactics like water-boarding. As Jane Mayer put it in her study of U.S. torture policy, The Dark Side, "SERE is a repository of the world's knowledge about torture, the military equivalent, in a sense, of the lethal specimens of obsolete plagues kept in the deep-freeze laboratories of the Centers for Disease Control."

Sidd vardjan says in his harangue on Gujarat that whenever jejadi terrorists hit somewhere in India, several ulemas issue statements condemning the attacks. But when Hindu fundamentalists attacked innocent muslims in Gujarat, Orissa, Karnataka,etc.. no Hindu sanyasins condemned them. Sidd Varadjan's mulish-idiocy made me laugh nonstop for half an hour in the morning...
What that sucker think..? A statement condemning terrorist attack would absolve off the ulemas and their mad-rassas from the crime of breeding jehadis?
If some statements condemning 'Hindu terrorism' from some sanyansins, are all that Sidd want to prove the 'secular bend' of the Hindu mind, I can send him several containers full of statements to his den.
I wonder where The Hindu picks up such idiots from, to fill up its editorial department...

Today a colour pic of Brinda appears on the last page of the Hindu, with a synopsis of all the letters she wrote recently. I wonder what is the relevance of that story; other than the letter-writer being the sweet heart of Ram.

Another person, who used to appear every day for silly reasons, was our vice prez, Hamid Ansari. But he has wholly disappeared from the pages of the Hindu. What happed? Did he fall out with Ram?

S.Late,
Interesting piece of news. It is part of the larger problem of ethics, if a small number can be subjected to pressure for the greater good, is it worth it?
This has been a conundrum since ancient times.

Kuttychathan,
I'm not sure what happened to Hamid. Probably since he's a Congress supporter, LiC is relegating him till the Left makes their peace with him.

This blog has time and again pointed out the inconsistencies by the various writers of Chindu. They fall into several categories from the wacko insane (Krishna I) to hyper secular (Malini P) to the blind dogmatic(LiC) to the high school suck up(Khare and others). Siddharth Varadarajan belongs to a different category by himself. A very shrewd manipulator of facts without evidence and presenting them as opinions, Sidd knows fully well that Chindu will give him deniability in any case. His recent article, Where silence prevails, justice will not is a prime example.
His main motive is to tarnish all Hindus in general and Narendra Modi and the BJP in particular for the Gujarat riots and he will go to any extent to do that. For example he claims the Gujarat riots were created as a response for Kashmiri Pandits,
Sanjay Tickoo, a young Pandit from Srinagar, told me. “Riots were organised in Gujarat in our name. But tell me, what do the poor Muslims of Gujarat have to do with our plight?”,
Where exactly is the evidence to that? Siddarth provides no evidence just leaves the statement hanging as if it is fact. This is pathetic journalism. Moving on, another example is the statement of Sri Sri Ravishankar providing an analogy between the camps for the Kashmiri Pandits and the Sri Lankan Tamil refugees.
But Mr.Varadarajan ever the secular pinko apologist states,
But I must also confess to feeling bad that Sri Sri, who is one of India’s most influential godmen, missed an opportunity to prick our conscience by also remembering the callousness of the Indian authorities towards other internally displaced persons like the Muslims of Gujarat or the Christians in the Kandhamal district of Orissa.
Again this stretches the truth significantly, unlike the Pandits who were evicted in their entirety, the minorities in Orissa and Gujarat for the most part have returned back and the state Governments have given evidence supporting their return. There are certain cases where camps are created for the poorest or for people whose homes were totally destroyed.
That doesn't mean that everyone affected by the Gujarat and Kandhamal riots is out on the streets as Sidd would want us to believe.
The entire article is filled with such crap and pseudo secular bullshit that it makes reading it only raise any sane person's blood pressure.
Someone once mentioned that Siddarth Varadarajan scans this blog from time to time. If he is reading this, we here would like him to provide some real facts than just manipulating news and providing analysis to his convenience without any backing.
