                   In 1947,when the Indian state was born,not many believed that it would survive .The pessimism shown even by top leaders was not without any basis,They believed that India's vast diversity would affect the integrity of the nation.
   The multi-lingual,multi-ethnic,multi-religious ,multi-cultured nation after Partition was quite in a trauma with further voices of difference and further movements to divide the nation.but many movements to secede the nation into more parts never succeeded.
   In India communal violence do happen but these are occasional incidents ,but there are number of unnoticed incidents of religious harmony that are unsung by leaders and politicians...
   Being an Indian ,I am proud ...I enjoy a life of diversity which i can never enjoy in any other nation.Even though I am a Hindu ,I have lot friends who are Christians and Muslims.I enjoy the cultural diversity that imparts me a new identity and experience whenever I travel across the vast Nation.Even in villages ,youngsters want to dive away from the tides of religious exclusion towards an island of harmony.Its time to utilise this harmony to a new hope and spread it to stop communal fights and eradicate poverty  and corruption out of the nation.

          Canadian Government, in the past few months ,denied travel visas to a number of senior serving and retired officials of the Indian Army and other Indian intelligence agencies like CBI..The Canada embassy claimed the visa denial was on the ground that the officials  have served in sensitive areas like Jammu and Kashmir and engaged in violence and human rights violations.
               
Indian Media and Indian Government hit out at Canada stating its action to be Biased and many claimed Indian Army and forces have one of the best Human Rights record among many other top powers.   The Canadian government says that it  only quoted  from the Amnesty International's report which says that India committed war crimes and human rights violation that led to the death of 70,000 people.        
          
The timing of this whole ...Canadian Visa row is interesting ..as .yesterday a new fake encounter case was registered against Indian army.Fake encounters are not new to Indian Army...since last year the number of fake encounters on the LOC and in Jammu & Kashmir has showed a sudden rise..affecting  peace in the state.The first fake encounter that attracted attention in J&K was the killing of five people by the police and 7 Rashtriya Rifles in the Pathribal area of south Kashmir on March 25, 2000.In February 2006, 20 boys playing cricket in Doodhipora in Kupwara district were fired on by  Army personnel killing Four boys.The recent killing of three innocent youths at Sonapindi area, in Machhil sector of Kupwara district is just a new entry to the list.
          
The army has a reputation of Fake encounters and rapes in Manipur and these acts huge human right violation.The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958 played a major role ..The Act, which has been in operation in Manipur since September 8, 1980, and is applicable to all the north-eastern States, allows any commissioned or non-commissioned officer or any other person of equivalent rank from the armed forces to enter and search any premises without a warrant, arrest without a warrant and even fire upon or otherwise use force, even to the extent of causing death, against any person acting in contravention of any law in the notified disturbed area.A review on the law is required to curb injustice from Army.
    
So why is this happening ....a steady rise in fake encounters...The staged encounters is just for monetary benefits and gallantry awards ...to restore peace in Jammu & Kashmir India need to stop this .....or will see more youngsters attracted to Terrorism ....and hatred against the nation would be on rise.I was always proud of India in Battle field and India in Cricket field ....now both seems to just scripted plays for money and fame.

                 Terrorists have launched simultaneous raids on two mosques in Lahore, of the minority Ahmadi Islamic sect,  killing more than 80 innocent people.So why do terrorists who fight for Islam as Jihads target mosques - the holy places for prayer.Terrorists entered the two mosques and gunned down people mercilessly.The attack against Friday worshippers in the mosques was against Ahmadi Islamic sect.The attack was carried out by Sunni Muslim militants on Ahmadi Muslim.

        So what is Ahmadi Islamic sect......A minority Islamic sect founded in 1889, Ahmadis believe their own founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, who died in 1908, was a prophet.This is against belief of most Muslims who  believe the last prophet was Muhammad, who died in 632 .The Ahmadis Islamic sect which is spread across Indian subcontinent is considered as minority in Pakistan and were declared non-Muslims by Pakistani Government on 1974.

        The attack on  Ahmadi Islamic Sect shows how the militant Sunni groups .... find the beliefs of Ahmadis as un-Islamic and against the words of Muhammed - the last Prophet.Pakistani Taliban which first started its fight and jihad against westernisation and America is now turning against  minority sects within the Islamic community.Assassination in name of jihad or in the name of religion should never  be encouraged in any part of the world as no human has the right to take life ...as he has no power to give life.

    As Indian Government and State Governments remain helpless tackling Maoists attacks ...many people are feared dead and many injured in new attacks in West Bengal.Two trains derail after a improvised explosion goes off on tracks near Kharagpur.About 13 coaches of Kurla bound Ghyaneshwari Express derails and a  Goods train rammed into the derailed train causing more havoc.The incident took place at 1.30 AM IST .
        
     The Indian Home Secretary Mr.G.K,Pillai in a press release stated that about 100 people are killed and 150 injured...he also said that it was too early to say that the attack was executed by Maoists ....not ruling out  involvement of terror groups...

        The Train network in India will be affected due to the incident ...as  Kharagpur train line is one of the busiest rail lines in India ...many trains have been diverted to other routes.Railway minister Mamtha Banerjee has rushed to the spot ...but it is really sad  that the Government is remains just a spectator  helpless and unable to crack attacks like this which kills innocent people ... My hearty condolence  to those who lost their life in the incident.Its time the Government expels Home Minister Mr.Chidambaram and the Railway Minister ....as they are unable to crack down attacks like this.India need to change its policy towards internal security completely and look for new high end technology to curb attacks on Railways.
