 Jasodaben PM's Wife Files RTI on her Security !!!!

 Jasodaben PM's Wife Files RTI on her Security

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's wife, Jashodaben, has filed an RTI application asking for an explanation of the sort of security that she gets from the government

After Mr Modi was elected in May, Jashodaben was given round-the-clock security; she is protected by 10 commandos, five per shift, provided by state government.

In her three-page application, Jashoda, a retired school teacher who lives in Brahmanwada village of Unjha town of Mehsana district, has said, Acc to reports, I am the wife of the Prime Minister, I seek details on what other facilities other than security cover I am entitled to...I should be provided a certified copy of the order under which security is provided to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's family 
members, brothers, sisters and me.

She has also stated, I travel by public transport while my security personnel travel in official vehicles. She asked detail about all security person gardening her. 

In April, Mr Modi for the first time publicly declared that he is married - he had not commented before that on reports that he had an arranged marriage when he was 17. In election papers declaring him a candidate for Parliament, he wrote the name "Jashodaben" in a column regarding his marital status. He had left the column blank on previous occasions, including in the last Gujaratstate election in 2012.   

The Congress party had said that Mr Modi's failure to acknowledge his marriage suggested that he does not respect women.  

Jashodaben told a newspaper in February this year that Mr Modi left her after three years, during which they spent some three months together.

School Girl abused, blackmailed, & got Pregnant by youngster

A 16-year-old girl, who was allegedly black mailed and sexually abused by a youngster, got pregnant and gave birth to a baby here earlier this week.

The Kadakkavoor police arrested the youngster late Monday night and produced him before court on Tuesday. He was remanded in judicial custody.

The police said the fact that the girl was abused and was pregnant came to light only when she was admitted to a hospital in the capital city after complaining of stomach pain. She was delivered of a baby boy on October 25.

The police said the accused, Mujeer, 21, of Perumkulam, near Kadakkavoor, was a senior of the girl and had kept in constant touch with her through a mobile phone that he had gifted her. He had allegedly taken photographs of the girl and reportedly used them to blackmail her to succumb to his wishes. He had threatened to ‘destroy her life’ if she told of their relations to anyone, and had also tried to convince her through threats to go for an abortion after learning that she was pregnant, the police said.


However, the girl refused and continued to go to school, without her family or anyone else realising that she was pregnant. She was taken to the Chirayinkeezhu taluk hospital after she complained of stomach ache on October 24. Doctors there told her parents that she was pregnant. She was then shifted to SAT Hospital where she gave birth to a boy on October 25. By this time, Mujeer had gone into hiding, the police said.

The police, who recorded the girl’s statement, managed to trace Mujeer to his friend’s house at Pathanapuram with the help of the Cyber Cell.

Read Interview of Man Who Killed Osama Bin Laden !!!

US Navy Seal Soldier Named Robert O'Neill Claimed He killed"Osama Bin laden"  

US Navy SEAL who claims he killedOsama bin Laden in Pakistan has said that he heard the world's most wanted man take his last breath after he pumped three bullets into the head of the al Qaeda chief.

"I was standing above him when he took his last breath and I heard it," Robert O'Neill recounted. In part two of The Man Who Killed Osama Bin Ladan" Broadcast on media, O'Neill told Fox News that it was just chance that he ended up being the shooter in the famous mission at bin Laden's compound in the Pakistani garrison city of Abbottabad in 2011.
The 38-year-old commando described how after making it into the compound with his team, he entered the room and saw bin Laden.
"Standing on two feet in front of me, with his hands on his wife's shoulders behind her was the face that I had seen thousands of times, Osama," he said. "I recognized him very quickly and then it was just shoot 3 bullet in his head."
After bin Laden's death, the SEALs' mission was not over. O'Neill described the team's harrowing 90-minute flight back to Afghanistan after completing the raid on May 2, saying the team knew at any moment they could be shot down from the sky.
Eighty-something minutes into it, somebody came over the radio to everybody and said, “All right gentleman for the first time in your lives you're going to be happy to hear this -- welcome to Afghanistan,'" he said.
"And everyone was like; oh my God.... we just did it. We just pulled it off and we got him.  And we all lived.  We are all fine. It was Crazy. So then, there was high-fiving and stuff. Guys were, because I mean, we got Osama bin Laden and we are going to live....amazing."
O'Neill said that he and the other SEALs did not think they would make it out of the compound, but he said they felt that the mission would be worth sacrificing their own lives.
"We are going to die eventually, this is a good way to go and it's worth it to kill him," he said they thought. "He's going to die with us."
O'Neill has faced heat from other Navy SEALs who have either discredited his claims or said that it's impossible for O'Neill to know that it was his bullets that struck and killed Osama bin Laden.

Without directly addressing O'Neill and his claims, the military brass wrote a timely letter criticizing SEALs who take public credit for their actions.

Is ISIS Spreading Hands In India..... Read Report

Sad to See! Few Indian Youth of one Community Wants to Join hands with ISIS

 The reports of Indians joining ISIS came from Thane, near Mumbai, there are similar reports from Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Assam and West Bengal and Jammu & Kashmir as well.
The Centre has asked the states to keep a close watch on possible  suicide attacks by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria-inspired youth in big cities.
The latest advisory, issued about a week ago after a meeting of Intelligence Bureau officials and representatives of various Anti-Terrorism Squads from the states, underlines the buzz created by the ISIS among a certain section of youth.
An Intelligence assessment arrived at after distilling reports from across the country has concluded that at least 50 youths from various towns and cities of the country may have gone and joined ISIS, top sources told to media.
Most of these youth are skilled and semi-skilled workers living on the fringes of the mainstream, they said. Most of them were in search of an opportunity to go abroad to earn a better livelihood.
Self-zealot (katarpanthi) through social media and the internet, most found the ISIS ideology very attractive.
While those who have left are unlikely to return in a hurry, they have the potential to create a network of similarly motivated youth. It is from this breed of self-zealot, semi-skilled professionals that a potential attacker is likely to emerge, the intelligence advisory said.  
The targets could be chosen to create maximum impact. For instance, Kurla resident Anees Ansari, who was arrested by the
Maharashtra ATS in late October for allegedly claiming to blow up the BKC-based US consulate-affiliated American School in a Facebook chat, was reportedly angered by the US-led bombing in Syria against the ISIS. Ansari worked in a multinational software firm and had no previous criminal record. His Facebook post talking about the American School tipped off the cops.

Top home ministry officials said, the nationwide is alert to keep a close watch on ISIS-related activities, groups and individuals is likely to be on top of the agenda of the annual meeting of the director generals of police to be held in Guwahati in the third week of this month.

No women, dogs allowed !! This hitler decision given by VC of AMU .....

AMU ban on girl students in library is a shame

 The AligarhMuslim University on Tuesday gets busy in a controversy over not allowing access to women undergraduates to the main library in the campus but the institution said it was due to space constraint and denied having a “sexist approach”.

AMU Vice Chancellor Zameer Uddin Shah said that undergraduate girl students studying at the off-campus Women’s College do not have access to facilities of the MaulanaAzad Library since it was established in 1960 and there was “no fresh ban”.

He noted that all postgraduate girls and women research scholars “have been enjoying round the clock access to the Maulana Azad Library since its inception” and rejected allegations of gender bias, terming them “not only erroneous but mischievous and defamatory”.

Earlier, media reports had quoted him as saying, “There would be "four times more boys in the library if girls were allowed in”.  “The issue is not of discipline, but of space. Our library is packed,” the VC said, justifying why the girls were not allowed membership.
He said Women’s College is more than two kilometres from the main campus and all undergraduate students have access “to a top class separate library of their own”.

He said that a demand was raised on Monday to allow undergraduate girls to access the Maulana Azad Library but it was already burdened.

It can be met only after the “infrastructural issues have been resolved and arrangements for safe transport for girls have been made,” the VC said.

“I gave an assurance that presently we are not able to cater even to the burgeoning demands of boys and graduate girls for availing reading room facilities at the Maulana Azad Library and hence the issue of permitting undergraduate girls would have to wait until we have created necessary extra space. Once the infrastructural issues have been resolved and arrangements for safe transport for girls have been made, then we would certainly have no objection in permitting these girls to get physical access to the central library if they so wish,” he said.

The VC said he was “pained” that an impression was being created “as if AMU is against equal rights to women or that I have a sexist
approach. I want to reiterate that women’s empowerment is today a top priority of AMU and it is an article of faith for me to ensure that girl students at AMU are ready to compete with the brightest and the best in the country.”

Shah said arrangements are already there in place to deliver within 24 hours any book which is available at the main library and is not there at the Women's CollegeLibrary. “In other words, they already enjoy all access to the Maulana Azad Library without being encumbered by the burden of physically visiting the library at all odd hours,” he said.
