By comparisonthe Defence Ministers shilly-shallying between behaving like Pakistans Defence Minister and then almost declaring war on Pakistan seems almost forgivable He is not entirely to blame since surely he would have checked with senior officials like the National Security Advisor before making that first statement absolving the Pakistani army Our problem is that it is beginning to seem more and more as if there is nobody at Indias helm in a complex and scary time Al-Qaeda has resurfaced everywhere The American drawdown from Afghanistan draws close and respect for jihadis in Pakistan has reached such levels that Hafiz Saeed led Eid prayers last week at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore In case you have forgottenthis is the man we believe was the master planner of the 26/11 attack on Mumbai This is the man who spends most of every interview he gives spewing venom against India and vowing to destroy the very idea of it In case you have forgottenit is now an established fact that not only was the Lashkar-e-Toiba responsible for the worst act of terrorism on Indian soil but it was ably assisted by the ISI If only our Defence Minister had remembered this he would have hesitated to absolve the Pakistani army from involvement in the LoC attack Speaking of the 26/11 attackmay I remind you that despite all those promises of dealing resolutely with jihadi terrorismnothing has actually happened except a lot of talk So if the ISI thinks that it is a good time to organise another massacre in an Indian citythey would find it as easy to organise it as they did in 2008 The Indian government has taken none of the steps that the Americans took in their homeland after 9/11 Except for some token patrolling in Mumbainothing has really changed Nothing will change until the Indian government accepts at the highest levels of national security that we need to treat jihadi terrorism as war If we had a real defence ministerinstead of a man who got his job due to his loyalty to the Gandhi familyhe would by now have put in place systems whereby the Army and civilian authorities could work together to fight this war We would by now have had intelligence systems that really worked and police stations manned by policemen trained in counter-terrorism As we approach the fifth anniversary of 26/11 it would be fair to say that not only have none of these things happened but senior members of the Congress party have made statements denying that Pakistan was behind the attack So when Shri A K Antony said that the LoC attack was by a group of 20 men who were accompanied by some people in Pakistani army uniformhe was really only continuing to sing the same tune He may have taken his cue from that other Sonia loyalist in charge of national securityour Home Ministerwho famously said when Chinese soldiers crossed into Ladakh that it was not serious He made it sound as if it were no more than a game that both sides played just for fun The truth is that there is nothing funny about the games that the Chinese are playing in South Asia They appear to be working in accordance with a definite strategy to weaken Indiaand who better to help them do this than their old and reliable ally on the other side of the LoC Andwhat is Indias strategy to counter theirs Nobody knows Every time there is a serious problem of national securityour senior ministers behave as ineffectually as amateur fighters in a boxing ring Their antics always make India seem like an insignificantpathetic little country instead of an aspiring regional power What else can one say other

A disclaimer before I start I am a big fan of Mohanlal and pretty much whatever he does goes down well with my dark Mallu mind But then I’m not going to gloat over him getting another mention in the National Awards but how his movie Pulimurugan pushed the envelope on action sequences in Indian movies Movies down south have always packed a bit more punch when it comes to fight sequences and led the way on how to make cars jump in the air when the hero punched the ground instead of the villains Hindi movies have been able to watch and learn However Pulimurugan was not inspired by Tamil films for the action sequences seemed like something straight out of a movie shot in Hong Kong No there was no Jet Li or Chow Yun Fat to take on Mohanlal’s mouche twirling lungi swirling action scenes But Peter Hien’s thinking was clearly what you would have expected while going to watch a Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Though Mohanlal the middle-aged star that he is chose to do all his stunts himself the award would not have come for that The star of the movie was clearly the computer generated tiger which gave a tough fight to Mohanlal paw for paw There was also a parade of international stunt actors in the climax making a beeline only to be overpowered by the animal-like agility of Lal While Baahubali too had some stunning action sequences there was no award last year for action director and stunt choreographer Pulimurugan’s achievement can surely push Bollywood’s dishum–dishum industry to think of more than Ajay Devgn doing splits on 100cc bikes Also read |1971 Beyond Borders movie

party candidates from the community have won elections to municipalities district panchayats and taluka panchayats “The total tally of the winners will go further up because we are yet to receive reports from all talukas and districts from where we had fielded Muslim candidates” said Sufi Mahbub Ali Chisty chief of Gujarat BJP Minority Morcha The saffron party had fielded around 450 Muslim candidates in the local body polls BJP claimed its candidates from the minority community wrested several seats which were earlier represented by Muslims from Congress “BJP has made a big political dent in the Muslim pockets particularly in rural areas which were earlier considered by Congress as its impregnable political bastions” said Chisty In 2010 as many as 160 Muslim candidates had won on BJP tickets In Muslim-dominated Ward No 2 and 7 of Umreth Nagarpalika in Anand district entire panel of BJP — three Muslim (two women) and five Hindu candidates — was elected BJP candidates defeated the Congress-NCP panel which also included candidates from the minority community Aminabibi Malek elected from Ward No 2 said “Muslims in Umreth have voted BJP for development” She is in BJP for 15 years along with her husband Altafmiyan Umreth city BJP president Sujal Shah said: “Muslims in these two wards had also voted for the BJP candidate in the 2012 Assembly elections” Asif Zakaria (48) a share-broker who is among the three successful Muslim BJP candidates from Gondal Nagarpalika in Rajkot district said “Almost 60-65 per cent of Muslims voted for BJP candidates in Gondal because they benefited a lot in business and other activities in Gondal and nearby areas” “Congress only used Muslims as a vote-bank and gave us nothing in return Congress promises of sops for Muslims were only on paper and never translated into action This in fact created a wrong impression among the majority community about so-called Muslim appeasement by Congress So while Congress did not give any benefits they also lost the support of Hindu liberals” said Zakaria A total of 20 Muslim candidates from BJP have won in Gir-Somnath district — eight in Una Nagarpalika eight in Kodinar taluka panchayat and four in Gir-Somnath taluka Muslims comprise almost 50 per cent population of Somnath town and according to Chisty the victory of BJP candidates indicated growing acceptance for the party among the minorites While Congress won all district and taluka panchayats in Saurashtra Gir-Somnath and Porbandar remained the only fortresses of BJP in the coastal belt According to Chisty “Majority of Muslims were not comfortable with BJP due to various reasons and voted for Congress only This situation was exploited by Congress leaders who neither gave them any political benefit nor any share in development But the political scene has undergone a complete change in Gujarat with the emergence of a strong educated middle class some with political ambitions This was driving the Muslim youth particularly in rural and semi-urban areas to BJP to fulfill their political ambitions and work for development of the community” When questioned about BJP gradually making inroads in the Muslim support base of Congress the party’s minority cell chief Ghulam Khan Rauma said: “This is primarily because of Congress is out of power in the state for over 25 years Muslims also want development in their areas and they rightly or wrongly think that they can get benefits only if they are with the ruling party That is why Muslims in several areas have supported BJP But there is nothing spectacular” BJP making gains among Muslims were first seen in the bypoll to the coastal Salaya Municipality of Jamnagar district where the party had swept the elections Muslims comprise 90 per cent of the population there According to Chisty “The political scene has undergone a complete change in Gujarat with the emergence of a strong educated middle class some with political ambitions This was
