IB, RAW confirms that Kundankulam nuke protest are funded by ANTI NATIONALS, Says Dr Swamy

In Tamil Nadu on November 9, 2011 at 4:15 pm

From his press statement

 

“Now that the Intelligence Bureau and RAW have submitted reports to the Prime Minister that the anti-Koondankulam Nuclear Reactor agitation has been financed by anti-national, foreign inspired Christian missionaries, aided by the LTTE left overs, the Prime Minister cannot hesitate any more to give a direction to the Tamil Nadu Government under Article 256 of the Constitution, to clear the area around the Nuclear Reactor of all demonstrators, after issuing an eight hour warning to them to leave the area. If the Tamil Nadu Government does not act according to this direction, the Centre must declare the whole Tirunveli and Kanya Kumar districts as disturbed areas and ask the CRPF to take over the administration of the law and order of the area.

Koondunkulam Reactor was about to generate from 20th November the capacity of electricity of 1000 MW and another 1000 MW in February, 2012. This anti-national foreign inspired agitation has caused delay for meeting the schedule and caused great hardship for agricultural and industrial production in the State. Hence the Chief Minister must stop playing cheap politics in the national interest and act before she is forced to act.”

Swamy’s letter to PM on the nuke issue !

In Tamil Nadu on October 17, 2011 at 11:17 am

I demand an explanation from the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh  as to why his Secretary Mr. Pulok Chatterji, with the help of the Maharashtra Chief Minister  Mr. Prithviraj Chavan, has entered into negotiations with the Catholic Church in Mumbai  to help resolve the protests taking place against the Kudankulam Nuclear  Plant.  Does this mean that the Catholic Church is behind the agitation in which case it is highly objectionable  and calls for action under IPC Sections 153A & B, 295A and 505(2).  It also exposes that the PMO is under the clutches of the Catholic Church probably due to the extra-constitutional authority exercised by the now ailing Ms Sonia Gandhi who appears to regard Mr. Pulok  Chatterji with the PMO as her personal civil domestic servant judging by his role when she was hospitalized in New York. During the period of her hospitalization, Mr. Pulok Chatterji was frequently seen arranging for pizza and other snacks for her large Italian entourage numbering about fifty and living in plush apartments in New York close to the hospital.

The Prime Minister, if he is committed to secular, that is, not prejudiced against the majority Hindu community and biased in favour of the Christians because they are patrons of Ms. Sonia Gandhi, should put an end to this condemnable negotiation on the viability of the Kudankulam Plant.  The Church has no business to decide whatsoever on whether a new reactor set up after Government approval is to be opposed or supported.  Let the Catholic Church restrict itself to religious matters otherwise persons like myself would be free to investigate the practices of the Church such as in appointment of Bishops on direction from the Vatican, and receipt of funds from abroad.

Mumbai Church leader who is close to Pope met PM to discuss KNPP issue

Govt feels Jaya will eventually support Kudankulam N-project – Rediff.com India News.

 

The assessment of government in New Delhi [ Images ] is that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha will, eventually, support the Indo-Russian joint venture Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project.


The state is having steady growth of industry and with so many development projects lined up, power becomes the basic necessity.Even though the state cabinet has recently passed a resolution pertaining to the halting of construction activities at Kudankulam nuclear project, reality is that Tamil Nadu is in dire need of power.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [ Images ] wrote to Jayalilta on Wednesday, “Apart from the safety and livelihood aspects, where the government and the people are on the same side, I also took the opportunity to mention that Tamil Nadu is one of the most industrialised states of the country whose power requirements are growing constantly. Of the 2000 MWe power to be generated by Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project Units 1 and 2, the allocation of power to Tamil Nadu is 925 MWe. In case the prospects of availability of this power are suddenly withdrawn this would impact on the state’s development and industrialisation plans.”

It’s believed that Jayalalitha is unable to take a clear view on the project due to local elections which are fought keenly.

Meanwhile, anti-Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project activists have resumed their protest fast in Tirunelveli district. The most effective protests to the project is coming from the Churches and the Christian community leaders around the project.

Most of the planning of anti-project agitation is done by local priests and bishops. They are providing motivation and resources.

Recently the meeting took place at Bishop Roach Higher Secondary School near the protest venue to discuss the strategy. 

Interestingly, PMO is quite active in responding to the anti-project activists. On Wednesday evening Mumbai’s   most respected and powerful Church leader, who is considered close to Pope Benedict XVI in Vatican, met PM Singh to discuss the KNPP issue.

According to a source in PMO, the protest against nuclear power plant is taken seriously by government.

New Delhi understands that the protests have started after disaster in Japan’s [ Images ] Fukushima. Since the protesters are under spell of Churches in South India [ Images ], the Christian leaders were called to New Delhi to settle the issue amicably.

An Islamic seminary in the eye of a storm

In Tamil Nadu on October 10, 2011 at 5:16 am

A reputed Islamic seminary in Tamil Nadu is in the eye of a storm over its reported move to deviate from the traditional ideology,� which Islamic scholars fear would lead to extremist line of thought spreading its tentacles.� The� scholars� have expressed concern over the proposal� of the secretary of� Al-Baqiyathus Salihath, the 100- year-old Islamic seminary located in Vellore, Tamil Nadu, to change the syllabus.

The Bakavi Association, an organisation� of Islamic scholars who have graduated from this institution, says that the revised curriculum would instil among the students intolerance towards other religions, which will have disastrous impact in the future.

The scholars allege that new generation movements like Thableeg Jama’at are behind this move.

To discuss steps to be taken for preventing the move,� Bakavis across the country will meet at Vellore on Monday.

“The revised curriculum cannot be accepted.� Those who graduate from this institution are supposed to lead the community. If budding scholars are brainwashed and extreme ideology is instilled in them, it will have a disastrous impact on the community as well as the country,’” said Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Museliyar, a member of the Bakavi Association, who is also an alumnus of� the seminary.

Scholars believe that deviating from the ideology followed for more than 100 years would prove to be detrimental to the society.

“The new curriculum is entirely against the traditional Sunni ideology. It suggests� prohibition of Milad and Purdha recital. It is also learnt that the proposed curriculum has some elements which teach� intolerance to followers of other religions,” Museliyar told Express.

Museliyar, who is also general secretary of the All India Sunni Jam-Iyyathul Ulema general,� alleged that the secretary of madrasa Al-Baqiyathus Salihath was behind the move to revise the curriculum. “The secretary is a person who supports Thableeg movement. The Bakavis Association will never allow the move to introduce the new curriculum. Further decisions will be taken at the conference to be held on Monday,” he said.

Abdul Azeez Bakavi, the secretary of the Bakavi association, said that the institution that has been propagating Sunni Islamic ideology for the last 100 years would become a hub of� ‘bad ideas’ if curriculum change was allowed.

“The secretary of this seminary has been introducing changes over the past few years. Following this, there has been a considerable fall in the number of students enrolling there. There used to be 450 students in a year, now it has come down to 200.� This means� the community itself is against the deviation in curriculum. If this continues, the institution will lose its relevance,”� Bakavi said.

A channel that presents the wealth of Indian art forms, features discourses on Hindu literature and scriptures, and interesting discussions and debates on current issues —this is what Krishna TV, to be launched on Thursday, seeks to be.

“At a time when television is being considered a threat to the civilization, this channel would take the middle path between entertainment and spiritual channels. It will initially be launched in all parts of Tamil Nadu, except Chennai. We will launch it in Chennai later,” said S. Krishnaswamy, proprietor of the channel.

The main objective of the channel is to propagate a value-based understanding of Indian practices. “There are many misconceptions about these beliefs and practices among the youth, due to existing superstitions.

The channel attempts to eradicate them and provide a foundation for spirituality,” he said, adding that the channel is a not-for profit initiative.

Subramanian Swamy, Janata Party leader and one of the proprietors of the channel, said that the need of the hour is to have informed discussions among various scholars on current issues. The channel would present such programmes that kindle youngsters’ interest in present day issues, he said.

Concerts, classes

A powerful bomb placed in a bus parked in a depot in Madurai  was on Friday defused by police who said it could have been placed to cause disturbance before the next month’s local body elections in Tamil Nadu.

Police said the bomb did not work because the wires had not been properly connected.

But it was powerful enough to have caused extensive damage, they said, adding a petrol bunk was also located in the premises of the depot.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Velladurai said the bomb was a sophisticated one with unsophisticated wiring.
