Swamy, leftists demand action against Yashwant Sinha

Email this report to a friend

Amberish K Diwanji in New Delhi

Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha is facing flak from various quarters. His move to ‘let off’ Mauritius-based foreign institutional investors, or FIIs, over the double taxation issue has snowballed into a major controversy.

The latest to fire a salvo at the finance minister is Subramanyam Swami, president of Janata Party. In a media statement, Swamy has described Sinha’s denial of favouring Mauritius-based FIIs as “wholly unconvincing”.

Meanwhile, the Communist Party of India-Marxist, or CPI-M, called for Sinha’s resignation and withdrawal of the double taxation avoidance treaty that “was being misused by FIIs to avoid paying taxes in India”.

“If Sinha wishes to clear his name, he should ask Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to refer the entire matter to the Central Bureau of Investigation, or CBI. Or he should advise the prime minister to grant sanction on my petition to prosecute Sinha for offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act for causing huge losses to the nation,” Swamy said.

He said that his petition seeking sanction to prosecute Sinha on the ‘favoured treatment issue’ was pending with the prime minister for the last ten days. The prime minister has the authority to give sanction to prosecute ministers when they commit offences under the said Act, Swamy said.

Earlier, on Tuesday, CPI-M spokesperson Sitaram Yechuri said at a press conference in New Delhi that the core issue was the Central Board of Direct Taxes circular number 789 which stated that to prove residence in Mauritius, a letter to that effect would suffice.

He said that this was done to benefit the Sinha family, a reference to Sinha’s daughter-in-law Punita Kumar Sinha who is an investment manager with India Fund Inc, a foreign institutional investor headquartered in the US.

A CPI-M statement said that India Fund Inc 1999 annual report said that the company had opened a branch in Mauritius for the purpose of tax residency.

The statement charged that India Fund Inc routed all its investments through Mauritius to avoid paying taxes.

Yechuri said that the assets of India Fund rose from $300 million to $ 700 million in 1999 but that company had not paid one paisa in tax in India, from where it earned the profits. Neither had India Fund Inc paid any tax in the Mauritius since that island nation did not charge capital gains tax nor did it pay tax in the United States since the profits were earned outside of that country.

He pointed out that Mauritius did not have a capital gains tax, thus enabling FIIs to avoid paying any tax in India. “In India, a company pays a dividend tax at source or if he sells off the shares, he pays a capital gains tax on the profits earned. In the case of Mauritius, when that country does not have such a tax, how can they charge the tax?” he asked.

Yechuri claimed that out of 521 FIIs registered in India, only one was registered in Mauritius.

He said that any double tax avoidance agreement, such as the one signed between India and the United States, explicitly states that the profits must be paid in the country where they are earned. This clause was avoided in the case of Mauritius since it did not charge a capital gains tax, he said.

The CPI-M’s central committee charged the finance minister with preventing the Income Tax department from performing its legitimate action of claiming taxes from such countries that were fraudulently cheating India.

Yechuri said that every year India was losing tax revenue worth Rs 30 billion. “This is based on the fact that Rs 400 billion has been invested in the stock markets by the FIIs and that the dollar stock market index has appreciated 80 per cent,” he added.

“This revenue has been denied to our country at a time when the government is lamenting about the lack of resources and the need therefore to cut down on taxes,” said Yechuri.

Drawing a comparison, he said that food subsidies to the poor cost only Rs 11 billion. “This is about one-third of the revenue that India has been cheated out of,” he charged.

Yechuri said that it was the involvement of Sinha’s family members in some of the FIIs that made the finance minister get the CBDT to issue circular no 789 which force the IT department to recognise Mauritius-registered companies as Mauritius-based companies and, therefore, eligible for tax avoidance.

“Prior to the CBDT circular no 789, residence in a particular country was proven by proof of the residence of the company’s management. But what we have in Mauritius are post box addresses, wherein companies give certain post office box numbers as their registration address in Mauritius and are recognised as being based in Mauritius. Thus, they don’t have to pay a tax on their profits,” Yechuri said.

Blasting the Vajpayee government for committing a gigantic fraud upon the Indian people, the CPI-M demanded that the treaty with Mauritius be scrapped immediately.

“Any treaty with any country that hurts the Indian economy must be scrapped,” said Yechuri.

The CPI-M politburo member also criticised Mauritius. He said that Mauritius was luring companies by promising to be a tax haven with minimal taxes. “Mauritius even advertises that it is ready to help companies avoid paying high taxes by helping them speedily set up residence in their country,” he said.

Yashwant Sinha was not available for comment since he is currently in the United States.

His family members first came in to Prominence when Yashwant Sinha offered ‘Resurgent India Bond Worth Matured Value of $5.5b in 1998’. They all four didn’t report any Major Assignment before 1998. And were silently accumulating Loot of Finance Minister – SK Dubey Reported 50%-50% Loot in NHAI Projects in 2002 which was Rs.28,000 crore Scam.

Story Unfolds: Subramanian Swamy’s latest salvo

Swamy sabotaged Islamic banking

http://www.sunday-guardian.com/news/swamy-sabotaged-islamic-banking

NAVTAN KUMAR  New Delhi | 28th Mar 2015

Pressure from Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy led to the suspension of the launch of Islamic banking in India. The launch of State Bank of India (SBI) Sharia Mutual Fund, designed to invest in Sharia (Islamic law) compliant companies, was “deferred” at the last moment in December 2014 as Swamy wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about his grievances against the system and got it stalled.

Though SBI Mutual Fund termed the “deferment” as a commercial decision, Swamy admitted to The Sunday Guardian that he wrote a letter to the Prime Minister in December saying that introducing Islamic banking would be “politically and economically disastrous for our country”. “Yes, I wrote a letter to him (Narendra Modi) and he acknowledged it. He acted immediately and asked the concerned officials to stop it. So it was deferred at the eleventh hour,” Swamy said.

In his letter, Swamy spoke about the Kerala government’s decision to introduce a Sharia compliant bank there, which was challenged by him in court. “…The Reserve Bank under the then Governor Dr Y.V. Reddy had filed an affidavit stating that under Indian secular laws and under the Reserve Bank Act, Sharia compliant is not permitted,” reads the letter.

“Now by another door the same is being attempted regretfully because the present Governor of RBI, who is an appointee of the UPA, and for some inexplicable reason he is continuing as Governor of the RBI, namely, Dr Raghuram Rajan. He is openly encouraging the formation of Sharia compliant financially institutions, which in my opinion will be politically and economically disastrous for the country,” Swamy wrote in his letter. He added that “I trust you will ensure that the dubious funds in the Middle East do not enter our country through legally baptized channels of Sharia compliant financial institutions.”

The SBI Sharia fund had received the market regulator SEBI’s green signal. “A few days before the launch date, CEO and MD of SBI MF, Dinesh Khara, had invited me and he was very sure about the launch. He asked us to support it. But it was cancelled suddenly,” said H. Abdur Raqeeb, general secretary of the Indian Centre for Islamic Finance (ICIF).

The SBI has been saying that it needs to study Sharia Mutual Fund more so that the product can be “reoffered as a better and more attractive fund in future”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been receiving demands from various quarters to introduce a Sharia compliant, interest-free banking, which, it has been claimed, will boost his Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana. In a letter to the PM, the ICIF has urged him “to include the option of an alternate interest-free finance in the banking sector as recommended by Raghuram Rajan Committee on Financial Sector Reforms (CSFR)”.

The CSFR report, submitted by former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Raghuram Rajan, who is now Reserve Bank of India Governor, has observed that “certain faiths prohibit use of financial instrument that pays interest. The non-availability of interest-free banking products results in some Indian — including those in the economically disadvantaged strata of society — not being able to access banking products and services due to reasons of faith.”

“Even after 40 years of nationalization of banks, 60% of the people do not have access to formal banking services and only 5.2% of the villages have bank branches. Marginal farmers, petty traders, landless labourers, self-employed and unorganised sector enterprises, ethnic minority and women — common man of the country. The PM must facilitate interest-free banking in the larger interest of the country,” said Raqeeb.

Former Minority Affairs Minister and Rajya Sabha member K. Rahman Khan said, “I don’t understand why the Sharia compliant mutual fund was deferred suddenly. During my tenure as minister, I facilitated the introduction of interest-free banking. Why should SBI do it when it had already made all the preparations for it?”

According to Raqeeb, interest free banking is not meant for Muslims alone, but for all. “In Malaysia, 40% of the customers of interest-free banking are from other communities. In the United Kingdom, it is 20%,” he said. Sukuk, an Islamic finance product based bond, has emerged as an alternative of investment the world over for infrastructure development and India can also opt for the same. Brazil, one of the BRIC countries, has huge investments in various sectors based on Sukuk. Brazil has a negligible Muslim population.

Sources said that the Reserve Bank of India last year started the process of reviewing regulations on Islamic banking in India by setting up an internal committee. The RBI also allowed a non-banking finance company in Kerala, Cheraman Financial Services, to operate in a Sharia compliant mode.

Globally, Islamic banking is prevalent in many countries, with banks such as Standard Chartered and Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation running Islamic banking divisions, apart from conventional banking operations.

Autocrat’ Kejriwal Shoves Out Rebels

NEW DELHI:In politics, it’s what isn’t said that matters. Right now, a lot is being said about Aam Aadmi Party, the party which emerged from the India Against Corruption movement two years ago. A party holding the baton to change politics is now being torn apart with two factions crying “murder of democracy”.

The mess in AAP is out in the open after two founding members Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan and their supporters Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha were ‘kicked out’ from the national executive for their ‘anti-party activities’ on Saturday.

The day started with the 392-member national executive meet of the party to discuss and vote on the fate of Yadav and Bhushan, whose expulsion was being demanded by national convener of the party Arvind Kejriwal — whom the duo dubbed ‘autocratic’ a day earlier.

The Lokpal of the party, Admiral Ram Das, wrote a letter in which he mentioned a  text message that he received from the General Secretary Pankaj Gupta asking him to stay away from the meeting to “avoid confrontation”. The meeting was attended by 311 invited members, with party MLA’s and MP’s also attending among a large crowd of supporters. Members who failed to show identification, mobile number, and SMS invite were denied entry. Yadav, who sat on dharna for around 20 minutes for not allowing him inside, said A visibly upset Yadav said, “It was a murder of democracy. Everything played out according to a script.”

 Meanwhile, activist Medha Patkar resigned from the party saying, “Yogendra, Bhushan never worked against party.” She added that the party has reduced itself to a “tamasha”.

TAKING PEOPLE FOR A RIDE ON THE CONVERSION ISSUE

http://www.dailypioneer.com/columnists/coffee-break/taking-people-for-a-ride-on-the-conversion-issue.html

Sunday, 29 March 2015 | Kanchan Gupta | in Coffee Break

The right to ‘propagate’ does not mean the right to ‘convert’. And it is this inability to distinguish between the two that highlights the appalling ignorance of those who see nothing wrong with offensive evangelism

Astonishing ignorance laces the arguments proffered by the Left-liberal commentariat and ‘secular’ politicians in defence of religious conversions through deceit, allurement and coercion. A lot of this has been heard in recent days both inside and outside Parliament. Amid the raucous din in Parliament and television studios, a point that is heard over and over again is how converting Hindus to another faith is integral to ‘secularism’,

sanctioned by the Constitution, and must never be objected to as that would hurt India’s pluralism. The Idea of India, it would seem, is hinged on the idea of allowing foreign-funded evangelists a free run. “The Constitution guarantees Christian missionaries the right to convert people to Christianity,” we are told. “In a secular country, the Constitution reigns supreme,” we are reminded. “Violation of rights enshrined in the Constitution will destroy democracy,” we are warned.

A Christian woman appearing on Barkha Dutt’s show, feigning great outrage over ‘persecution’ of Christians by Hindus, especially the clergy (her reference was to the alleged rape of a nun in West Bengal, a crime for which Bangladeshi Muslims have been arrested) absurdly claimed that India has turned into “Hitler’s Germany”. The Archbishop, a Cardinal and the woman who heads West Bengal Minority Commission, who spoke on the issue to the media, poured unadulterated hate on Hindus and have not had the courtesy to offer even an apology now that they have been exposed as liars.

But let’s return to the contentious issue of conversions, which are based on fraud and deceit and whose victims are invariably the vulnerable sections of Hindu society. What does the Constitution say on the Church’s claimed right to convert Hindus and ‘harvest their souls’? Ask the Constitution-thumping saviours of secularism, pluralism and democracy this simple question and they will be stumped.

The ‘Constitution of the Socialist, Secular Republic of India’ is likely the most mentioned and least read book in the world. Everybody loves to flaunt it; very few have actually bothered to read it. This is what Article 25(1) of the Constitution says: “Subject to public order, morality and health and to other provisions of this part, all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right to freely profess, practice and propagate religion.”

Read it out to those who pretend great outrage every time there’s a hint of protest against conversions, and they will pounce upon you: “See, the Constitution gives Christian missionaries the right to propagate their religion.” Wrong. The right to ‘propagate’ does not mean the right to ‘convert’. And it is this inability to distinguish between the two that highlights the appalling ignorance of those who see nothing wrong with offensive evangelism. That the constitutional right to ‘propagate’ does not mean the right to ‘convert’ was clarified by the Supreme Court while upholding the validity of anti-conversion laws (the Freedom of Religion Act 1967 and the Dharma Swatantrya Adhiniyam 1968) in Odisha and Madhya Pradesh.

Chief Justice AN Ray, in his ruling, left little scope for confusion between propagation and conversion. The two, he said, were different. “What Article 25(1) grants is not the right to convert another person to one’s own religion by exposition of its tenets,” Chief Justice Ray ruled. The Supreme Court, in that judgment, also ruled that States, bearing in mind their responsibility to maintain public order, have the right to adopt laws “prohibiting conversion from one religion to another in a manner reprehensible to the conscience of the community”.

Some years ago, Christian organisations, including the Catholic church, raised a huge hue and cry over violence against evangelists in Rajasthan. Then, as now, the BJP was in power and Vasundhara Raje was the Chief Minister. That was enough of a reason, it would seem, for the onslaught that came from the church and the Minorities Commission.

The furore was centred over a Hindi book, Haqeeqat, which was being freely distributed in Rajasthan’s tribal-dominated areas by ‘Archbishop’ MA Thomas and his son, ‘Reverend’ Samuel Thomas, of the Emmanuel Mission International. Here are some samples of what Haqeeqat, which was being used by the Thomases and their associates to convince Hindus in Kota to abandon their faith and embrace Christianity, has to say:

  • “Hindu gods and goddesses are fictitious and were invented to persecute Dalits” (Page 9).
  • “To prevent indigenous people from acquiring knowledge, Saraswati invented difficult Vedas (which nobody can understand)”. (Page 16)
  • “With the progression of time, people all over the world (except India) were freed of their ignorance and they began to disown wicked and cruel gods and goddesses. But in India, because people are (enveloped) in the darkness of ignorance, imaginary gods and goddesses are still worshipped.” (Page 17)
  • “Naked sanyasis are worshipped by (Hindu) women. The moment (Hindu) women see naked sanyasis, they fall on the ground and prostrate themselves before the sanyasis. (Hindu) women pour water on thesanyasis’ penises and then happily drink that water. Ling Devata is gratified when he sees all these repulsive things and feels empowered… These people are ignorant and do not know the difference between what is right and wrong.” (Page 93)
  • “Sita was abandoned in the forest as per Ram’s wishes… Ram later asked Lakshman to kill Sita. In the end, Ram frustrated with life, drowned himself in Saryu. Such are the teachings of half-naked rishis who are praised by Hindutvawadis.” (Page 100)
  • “Lord Shiva, to get people to worship him, dropped his penis on Earth (Devi), shaking the ground and the sky! … . Poor Dharti Devi was shaken by the weight of his penis. Seeing this, all the Gods were scared. It seems Gods would use their penises as bombs! Whenever and wherever they wanted to, they would drop their ‘penis bombs’ to terrorise the people. Thus, they were able to enslave the people… But compared to foreign bombs, these penis bombs were a damp squib.” (Page 106-107)
  • “(Ramakrishna) Paramahansa should have known that Ganga is the world’s filthiest and dirtiest river. How many dead bodies float down this river every day? How many half-burnt dead bodies are dumped into it every day? And Hindus call it the holy river! In fact, all the rivers of India are dirty and polluted… Hindutvawadis pollute the rivers… and then depend on their false Gods to cleanse them…” (Page 122-123)
  • “(For Hindus) men can be Gods, women can be Goddesses… animals are gods, snakes are gods… they (Hindu Gods) fight among themselves, marry among themselves, throw out their wives, run away with others’ wives, they steal, get intoxicated, drink blood, are reincarnated as animals, fish and tortoise, some of them can lift mountains… Some Gods are in same-sex relationships and are yet able to produce babies. These Gods and Goddesses are always armed because they believe in killing and plunder. Some Gods think their penises are more powerful than nuclear bombs. Others like animals live naked among their followers. Some of them spend their time in yogic exercises, others are in samadhi and happy to see the number of blind followers swell… You can wash away your sins by worshipping the penises of Gods.” (Page 146)
  • “How could Arya Hindus bring Aryanisation on this earth. To be Arya, one has to be born of an Arya womb… If Arya Hindus want to bring Aryanisation then they must lend or rent out all Arya wombs to non-Aryans. Non-Aryans should be given Brahmin women so that children are born from Brahmin womb” (Page 182-183).
  • “In modern India, many Ramas of this belief are living a carefree life. They marry several times, desert their wives, marry several times, and leave them. Many Ramas kill their Sitas. They are following their God Rama.” (Page 269)
  • “(Lord) Krishna had a despicable sex life… Shri Krishna is famous because of his love life. He had 16,008 wives. And all Yadav women were his illegitimate lovers. (Hindu) women are drawn towards him because of pornographic and vulgar tales of his sex life.” (Page 391)

The Government of Rajasthan, following street protests, decided to ban it to prevent the eruption of violence. Cases were registered against the father-son duo of ‘Archbishop’ Thomas and ‘Reverend’ Thomas. Immediately thereafter, the campaign of calumny began. It’s not for nothing that Indira Gandhi, incandescent with rage after the mass conversion of Hindus to Islam at Meenakshipuram in February 1981, favoured the idea of States adopting anti-conversion laws and had the Home Ministry prepare a draft Act for circulation among State Governments. Why the draft never became law is another story best kept for another day.

Why some right-wingers are sceptical of Arun Jaitley: A right-winger’s view

http://www.thenewsminute.com/stories/Why%20some%20right-wingers%20are%20sceptical%20of%20Arun%20Jaitley:%20A%20right-winger%E2%80%99s%20view

Arun Jaitley 1

By Kaushik

Arun Jaitley is no stranger to the scathing criticism of the online right-wing. He is an impressive orator and is also known to be an effective political operative, but doubts about his loyalty to BJP have always lingered. At times he seemed to be politicking for his own ends, which do not necessarily line up with what is good for the party at large.

Arun Jaitley continues to cause a storm online even now. Before the new government was formed, it was a common left-liberal refrain to say Narendra Modi is a polarizing character. But after BJP’s comfortable victory, some of us find that Arun Jaitley has become a polarizing character, someone who has divided the right wing. His very intention is being questioned, and I wonder if we should continue to give him the benefit of doubt. We have no patience left for his aristocratic ways.

Arun Jaitley has always been moderately popular. He has never been a politician of the masses, simply because he never took the effort. He is an intelligent and powerful politician who likes to operate in the dark alleys of Delhi’s power circuit. His skill of articulation backed by in-depth knowledge has given him the image of a master-strategist.

To me, he has always belonged to the Delhi clique, representing the ‘coterie culture’. All leaders enjoy surrounding themselves with yes-men who provide ego-massages and also act as messengers or gatekeepers, but not all of them stop communicating with others. Jaitley is not one of them. He might be nice to the people around him, but he is reserved and reveals little to those outside his coterie. This has become fertile ground for conspiracy theories.

A lot was expected from him in his role as the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha. Many of us who were overawed by his articulation on various subjects were naturally expecting fireworks from him in the parliament. But while Jaitley, along with Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, did take up issues against Congress from time to time, on the whole he was ineffective.

The problem rose from the fact that he locked himself up with his coterie in the Parliament. Apart from speaking inside the Parliament, they would not indulge in any other major forum. They were not seen in the courts or the streets. There was an obvious, widening gap between the leadership and karyakartas. Nitin Gadkari did bring about a few changes when he took over from Rajnath Singh. He hit the streets with road shows and Chalo Sansad campaigns to embarrass the UPA government. But he was ousted soon enough.

Right-wingers have always believed that all power in BJP, while it was in the opposition, lay in the hands of the four people close to Mr. Advani, his political disciples. Who belonged to the ‘D4’ depended on who you spoke to, but Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley were constant. The D4 was often held responsible for targeting leaders like BS Yeddyurappa, causing immense harm to the party. The reality will never be known, but perceptions matter. The D4, especially Jaitley, was also perceived to be going easy over the Congress.

It is true, though, that they had no other option. They were lazy no doubt, but the numbers with BJP in the house meant there was little they could do in the Parliament to make a dent on the government. It was often believed that all BJP leaders were spied on by the NTRO in Sonia’s rule. BJP did not have adequate power to fight back so they could have adopted the strategy of playing nice only so they could live to fight another day. But for those with little at stake, this became an unacceptable behavior. Moreover, such coziness bred further conspiracy theories.

Such perceptions have eroded any good faith Jaitley enjoyed amongst many right-wingers. He was not seen doing enough. He was not seen letting himself be martyred for the right-wing cause. While he was an important part of the Modi campaign, and is also called Modi’s Chanakya, party workers never had a consensus over him.

There were further complications with the entry of Dr. Subramaniam Swamy into the BJP. Many karyakartas found hope in Swamy. He was vocal, vicious and took matters to the court. Overnight he became a hero for a sizable chunk in The BJP. He was embarrassing the Congress and seemed more powerful than the leaders of BJP.

Today, everything is assessed by these earlier comparisons between Swamy and other BJP leaders. Before the elections, Swamy’s diehard supporters expected him to get a seat from an urban constituency like Delhi or Mumbai. He was not given a seat, so it was believed that Modi had a special role cut out for him.

After the results were announced, there was only more disappointment for Swamy and his supporters. When even unknown faces of the BJP won on the back of a Modi wave, Jaitley lost. His loss was expected to reduce his chances of a ministerial berth. But he got two of the big four ministries and another smaller ministry too.

For Swamy’s supporters this is a breach of trust. Even though Swamy worked tirelessly for Modi, he has not been given what he deserves. The bitterness of the right-wing has roots here.

Jaitley has unfortunately been disappointing the right-wing, beginning with the Defence Ministry’s affidavit in the Dalbir Singh Suhag case. This was a clear U-turn by Jaitley as before the elections he opposed the government appointment of Suhag.

Not only did Jaitley clear the appointment of Dalbir Singh Suhag, but the affidavit that was submitted in the court was same one prepared by the UPA, which squarely put the blame for investigation of Suhag on “pre-meditated” intentions of Former CoAS Gen. V K Singh, who is now Jaitley’s fellow-Minister.

If Swamy had fought the corruption cases in courts and won hearts, Gen. V K Singh did so by raising national security concerns of multiple dimensions at grave personal risk, while in uniform and at an embarrassingly heavy price. He had won the hearts of millions and this showed in his high-margin electoral victory.

So, attacking and embarrassing a man like Gen. V K Singh, who is seen as an upright man by a majority, caused a sudden shock. Divisions were sharper than ever before. Jaitley is being suspected of carrying forward Congress’ agenda in BJP Govt. And it has looks convincing since he is close to the Gandhi family, Manmohan Singh and Chidambaram.

As if this was not enough, Jaitley did a U-turn on Henderson Brooks Report on 1962 War. He was a Minister in NDA’s 1st Tenure, that too in Law Ministry. One would assume he had a good chance to read it then. Even if not, he had a chance to read at least those hundred pages released by Neville Maxwell. He even blogged about it, asking for it to be released. But once in power, he changed his tune.

His response to the Swiss National Bank issue was also not appropriate. He seemed to have accepted the version given by the bank that there was no new data available on India account-holders. Does that mean all the aggression on black-money issue before elections was humbug?

Dr. Swamy has also made a very serious request the other day, about lawyer MPs of BJP disclosing the list of MNCs, from whom they receive retainer fees. It is well known that the price to not take up a fight against a client is always more than the price of taking up a fight for the client. In spite of giving up practice on paper, when law firms of the MPs are run by their family members, it is a common sense what they are up to. This is by far, the deadliest attack on Jaitley, but is bound to fade away.

On the whole, while it is clearly a Swamy vs. Jaitley fight. For us right-wingers, the impression that Jaitley is a head-worker trusted by the PM remains, but the goodwill to generate mass support is still missing. Maybe, Mr Jaitley will take this into account.

My ‘manifesto’ on our imminent and ultimate collision with global Islamic Terrorism

Many of these my earlier tweets are on what awaits us with our unfinished war with Islam. I have traced it globally to show its sweep and depth.

This also truly forms my manifesto of as a true Viraat Sanaathani.

1. Islamic Ottoman Empire covered large parts of Europe & included most of southeastern Europe to the gates of Vienna.

2. Ottoman Empire At its height the empire included modern Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia, Romania, Greece, and Ukraine.

3. Over almost 600 years of its existence Ottoman Empire had converted most of the population under its control to Islam
from Christianity.

4. Ottoman Empire collapsed and the Christians regained the territories in Europe but under its new policy of secularism.

5. In the heydays of Ottoman Empire Europe was divided into Christian Europe and Muslim Europe.

6. In Christian Europe there was schism between the king and the pope that resulted in the bifurcation of powers known as secularism.

7. With secularism the kings used it to ward off challenges by the clergy.

8. However secularism was ill-equipped when the subjects were divided into followers of warring religions of Islam and Christianity.

9. Though Christians regained their lost territories from Islam their secularist policy left the Muslims remain muslims in the now Christian Europe.

10. With debts and decay staring at their face in most of Europe today, the religious war is rising their head in Europe.

11. This is inevitable because capitalist economy to which secularism is key exists in two extremes of boom and bust.

12. In fact this capitalist economy is actually predatory, not productive as is touted, and its existence is by capturing markets.

13. This policy and practice of elbowing out competitors from market place have already resulted in two world wars.

14. Until WWI the westerner’s (Christo-Islamists’) History was Mediterranean countries focussed. The theatre moved away eastwards in WWII.

15. Islam was never conquered in both wars. Istanbul might have fallen but Islam did not and it is eroding into Europe.

16. Secularism is no divine panacea for poverty and capitalism is bound to collapse right where it started namely Europe.

17. In Europe the Christians who have by now converted to Islam or turned atheists wont be fighting either for secularism or for Christianity!

18. The entire gamut of struggle against Islam is not in the hands of Americans who support Saudis and Pakistan.

19. Europeans are losers and Russians are a collapsing empire and the Chinese would be content to keep the space they have from their own people they suppress.

20. The only force who can challenge and has the capacity to win the marauding hoards of Islam are the Hindus who proved it for 1000 years.

21.Ottoman empire ended in 1922 but the British compensated the Muslims with a Pakistan. Our struggle with Islam is never over, NEVER!

22. The safe haven for Islamic Jihadist terrorism is centered in Pakistan and it is actively supported by the U.S.

23. A so called civilian/military govt of Pakistan that forms a sheen for Jihadi terrorism is collapsing in Pakistan.

24. Collapse of Pakistan is gathering momentum. It is going to unleash the worst disturbance in India.

25. ISIS type of fundamentalist Islam is poised to take over in Pakistan that is not going to respect any borders in the west or in the East.

26. East of Ankara all the way to Lahore this blood-thirsty Islam is going to burst like a valcano.

27. This new mindless raakshasa hoards can and will certainly drag large part of Europe in its vortex.

28. Who is the new Baghdadi in the crumbling Pakistan?

29. Our nation is to enters the unheard of crisis in the collapse of Pakistan and the cruel war will be waged not by armies but by terrorist jihadists.

30. This terrorist jihadism of Islam will be well penetrated appealing to millions of Muslims and Muslims will always be Muslims.

31. While in the western border (Punjab and Kashmir) we face new wave of refugess and in the East particularly Assam with be a theatre of war.

32. Our stupid Media would still be ignoromously talking secularism and anti-Hindu. We have to hang those journos
mercilessly.

33. No development, no democracy, no peace is possible with Islamic Jihadism and Christian secularism. Let this sink firmly in our mind.
