Pakistan’s jihadist military is bankrolled by the US government – Tufail Ahmad

“Indian intellectual thought refrains from taking positions on global issues. … Indian diplomacy is cultivated to be intellectually timid, to hide behind non-alignment and lacks a conception of India’s place in the world. … In any India-US dialogue, America’s Pakistan policy must be on the agenda.” – Tufail Ahmad

Unless we’re able to face China, we will only be left writing books: Arun Shourie – Maxin Mathew

“We have to prove that we’re serious about our own development and security. I sincerely hope he (Modi) doesn’t think that increasing trade with China is going to defang it. China has large trade ties with Japan and the United States, but it is also determined to overcome America in dominance and influence. Unless we prepare ourselves to face China, we will only be left writing books.” – Maxin…

Khorasan Hadith: The dubious prophecy that inspires Muslim terrorists – Michael Crowley

“The prophecy—attributed to the Prophet Muhammad but which many experts call of dubious origin—imagines a Muslim army emerging from the Khorasan region and conquering the Middle East, including Jerusalem, under their black flags. This great victory, Soufan writes, amounts to ‘the Islamic version of Armageddon.’” – Michael Crowley

Tamil Nadu Government’s scant regard for cow protection – B. R. Haran

“While devotees donate thousands of cows and calves in the belief that they would be taken care of well, the HR & CE Department shows scant regard to their religious sentiments and to the welfare of the hapless animals.

Arab money funding terrorism since the 1980s – Taki

“In cahoots with the Saudis and the Kuwaitis, the Qatari ruling family allowed various so-called private businessmen to raise money for jihad. Saudi money funnelled through Islamic charities has been funding terrorism since the 1980s. Ditto the Kuwaitis. These private fund-raisers are an obvious charade. It’s the Kuwaiti, Saudi and Qatari ruling family’s money that ends up in terrorist hands.…

Muslim invasion created Dalits and tribals in India, says RSS – India Today

The BJP’s ideological mentor,…“The RSS … has been actively promoting a rewriting of Indian history and has largely rejected the historiography pursued by professional [Marxist] historians, accusing them of being anti-Hindu.

Eliminate terrorism, Mr Home Minister, not English – Madhav Nalapat

“When the whole world is seeking to learn English, including China … it makes little sense for Rajnath Singh to expend effort on doing away with a language that for decades to come will remain an indispensable component of India’s quest to escape from the 19th century into the 21st. He needs to remember that Narendra Modi got his party elected on the promise of a march to the future, not a return…

India ruled by BJP is not India of the Dynasty – Rakesh Sinha

“Even if we were to adhere to the homilies of pro-Chinese Indian “experts” advocating voluntary amnesia of China’s illegal occupation of 48,000 sq km of Indian territory and PLA’s border adventurism, there are issues which can’t be downgraded. One of them is the Brahmaputra River. Flowing from Tibet, the Sangpo River, also known as the Brahmaputra, enters India. China reportedly desires to build…

Poverty and food salvage in the USA – Linda Hess

“I soon learned more about the 52 million Americans—one in six of us—who are unsure of where their next meal will come from. I also learned that grocery stores and many food-derived businesses discard their excess unexpired food daily instead of donating it: Up to 40 percent of the food produced in the U.S. is wasted.” – Linda Hess

Nothing Vedic in ‘Vedic Maths’ - C. K. Raju

Nothing Vedic in ‘Vedic Maths’ – C. K. Raju

“Promoting the wrongly labelled ‘Vedic mathematics’ suppresses the mathematics that really does exist in the Vedas. For example, Yajurveda 17.2 elaborates on the decimal place value system (the basis of Indian algorithms) and some of those names for numbers are still in use…. That passage shows that the place value system extends back to Vedic times, and it was a late acquisition only in …

“The pro-independence Tibetan leaders need to understand that their utterances and activities are antithetical to the political philosophy and methodology of the Dalai Lama.
