We hit terrorists in their backyard after Pulwama: Modi

first_imgGreater Noida: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said India hit terrorists in their backyard after the Pulwama terror attack and accused the previous Congress-led UPA government of lacking courage to take action against Pakistan-based terror groups after 26/11 Mumbai terror attack in 2008. Addressing a rally here, Modi said what his government did post-Pulwama has not been done in decades. “We hit terrorists in their houses. The terrorists and their masters were not expecting this kind of response. The air strikes were done at 3.30 am and Paksitan lost its sleep. They tweeted at 5 a.m. and started saying that Modi has hit us,” he said. Recalling the surgical strike of 2016 in the wake of terror attack at Uri, he said terror masterminds were accustomed to thinking that India would do nothing, but his government has “taught them a lesson”. He alleged that perception about inaction by India was due to the government that ruled India before 2014. Modi said that there was need of action after the Mumbai terror attack that killed 166 people as the world community was with India. “But it needs courage. There were proofs of involvement of terror masterminds based in Pakistan. But what did India do?” he asked. Modi said the forces were ready for action but “Delhi was cold”. He said terror cannot be fought by constraining hands of defence force. Referring to the terror incidents after the Mumbai attack, Modi said these were also linked to Pakistan but the “remote-controlled” government showed inaction. “What did the then government do? They did not change the policy, but (changed) only home ministers. If they had shown the courage, given reply to terrorists in their language, terrorism would not have become such a big problem (for the country),” he said.last_img read more

India rejects as ‘preposterous’ Pak claim of attack plan

first_imgNew Delhi: India on Sunday rejected as “irresponsible” and “preposterous” Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s claim that India was planning to carry out another attack on Pakistan, saying his comments were aimed at whipping up war hysteria in the region.Qureshi told reporters in Multan that Pakistan has “reliable intelligence” that India was planning to attack Pakistan again between April 16 and 20, adding that five permanent members of the UN Security Council were apprised about it. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’In a strongly worded statement, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar termed Qureshi’s comments as “public gimmick” appearing to be “a call to Pakistan-based terrorists to undertake a terror attack in India.” “India rejects the irresponsible and preposterous statement by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan with a clear objective of whipping up war hysteria in the region. This public gimmick appears to be a call to Pakistan-based terrorists to undertake a terror attack in India,” Kumar said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KHe said India reserves the right to respond “firmly and decisively” to any cross-border terrorist attack. India struck the biggest terrorist training camp of terror group Jaish-e-Muhammed deep inside Pakistan on February 26, twelve days after the dastardly Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed. The JeM had claimed responsibility for the attack. On February 27, the Pakistan Air Force retaliated by unsuccessfully targeting several military installations in Jammu and Kashmir. Kumar said it has been made clear to Pakistan that it cannot absolve itself of responsibility of a cross-border terrorist attack in India. “No attempt at creating an alibi for its complicity in such attacks will succeed. Pakistan needs to take credible and irreversible steps against terrorism operating from all territories under its control rather than making hysterical statements to obfuscate the core issue that bedevils our region: cross-border terrorism,” he said. The MEA spokesperson said Pakistan has been advised to use established diplomatic and DGMO (Director General of Military Operations) channels to share any actionable and credible intelligence it has about imminent terror attacks.last_img read more

Controversy over Religious Affiliation of Potential PJD Candidate: Jew or Muslim?

Rabat- It was rumored recently when Moroccan lawyer Isaac Charia asked to join the Islamist party PJD that Charia is a Jew. However, Charia stated subsequently that he is not a Jew, but a Muslim. One of his colleagues in the Rabat Bar Association has said that “Charia has disavowed his religion,” a journalist for Akhbar Alyaoum claims that Charia just wants “fame,” while a PJD official has commented that the controversy “is childish.” MWN investigated this controversy. Contradictory StatementsEverything started when Akhbar Alyaoum stated in its April 19th issue that Charia is a ”Jewish Moroccan lawyer who wants to join the ruling Islamist party PJD”.The article, which was published on the front page of Akhbar Alyaoum, was entitled “Precedent… a Jew  Prepares to Join the Head of Parliament’s Islamist party.”  A few days later, in interviews with many local news websites and newspapers, Charia harshly criticized the media that had promoted rumors that he is Jewish, confirming that he is a Muslim.In a recent phone call with Morocco World News, Charia explained that he is not a Jew  “My name is Isaac Charia, my father is Tayeb Charia, and my grandfather‘s name was Ahmed Charia, the son of Mohamed Charia…,” he said.  “I am from a Muslim family from Andalusia in southern Spain.”He added, “As for my first name Isaac, there are plenty of Muslims who name their sons Isaac. This name is not associated only with the Jewish people.”Issac Charia and the Journalist if Akhbar Alyaoum In his previous interview with Akhbar Alyaoum, when a journalist asked him, “why did you choose to join the Islamist party although you are a Jew?,”Isaac responded that he had decided to join the PJD because he was drawn to the party’s principles against corruption.  Yet, Isaac did not at the time deny that he is a Jew.Amal Aboulaala, the journalist for Akhbar Alyaoum who interviewed Charia, confirmed to Morocco World News that Isaac did not then deny that he is Jewish. She stressed that “he avoided talking about his religion.”“Isaac Charia intended to provide camouflage in his responses to the questions about his religion, because he is trying to achieve fame,” the journalist asserted.Replying to the journalist’s statements, Charia said that Amal Aboulaala misunderstood what he was trying to say. “I avoided talking about my religion, not because I am a Jew, but because I wanted to confirm that PJD is a political party, and we should separate politics and religion.” Charia and his colleagues in the Bar Association Media reports aside, we wondered what is the perception of Charia among his colleagues in the Syndicate in Rabat? Do the lawyers know anything about his religious affiliation?To find answers to these questions, Morocco World News talked to one of his colleagues in the bar Association.Abdelmaoula M., a lawyer in the Rabat Bar Association who knows Isaac Charia personally, told Morocco World News that Charia always avoids talking about his religion with his colleagues.“None of the lawyers in the Rabat syndicate knows about Isaac’s religion,” said Marouri. “I read Akhbar Alyaoum’s interview  with Isaac Charia on April 19th, in which the newspaper reported that he is a Jewish lawyer who wanted to join the Development and Justice party. Later, I was surprised to watch other interviews of Isaac published on many news websites, in which he was stressing that he is Muslim,” he explained.“All I can say about him is that he has disavowed his religion… whether Isaac is Jewish or Muslim, he has disavowed his religion, for unknown reasons.” Issac Charia and the story behind the rumor Regarding the rumor that he is a Jew, Charia explained to Morocco World News that he had sent an open letter to the PJD officials requesting to join the party.“I explained in my letter that I am a liberal and modern Muslim man who believes that we should separate politics and religion. I also expressed that I have ideas that oppose the party’s principles. But, I am interested in the honest willingness of the PJD to fight corruption in the country.” He added, “Yet, I was surprised later that my letter was published on the party’s official website without requesting my permission. My letter was headed with a title that said ‘Precedent… a liberal activist wants to join the Islamist party,’” Isaac explained.Charia explained that PJD officials addressed his article to the media, “in order to paint my request for a liberal activist to join the PJD as a victory for the Islamic party.”Reading the Islamic creed, Isaac renewed his condemnation of those claiming that he is Jewish, and affirmed that he is Muslim. “There is no god but God, and Mohammed is his prophet,” he said.Issac Charia and PJD officials Charia told Morocco World News that his letter is a challenge to PJD officials, saying “I want to know if the PJD can accept people who oppose the party’s principles, and I am still waiting for a response from party officials.”Morocco World News tried to contact Bouanou Abdellah, the president of the PJD in the House of Representatives, but Bouanou refused to comment on the issue, calling the controversy “childish.”© Morocco World News.
