Political Impact of Newtown School Shooting

 

Recently re-elected President of United States Obama said the world would judge the nation by the way it cared for its children, and that Dec 14’s slaughter in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown of United States ‘School Shooting’ executed by 18 year old Adam Lanza left that judgment wanting. 

 

Gun battle debate

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting by youth Adam Lanza in Newtown of United States by a gunman used a military-style assault rifle to kill six adults and 20 first-graders before committing suicide. Several Democratic lawmakers called for a new push for US gun restrictions on Dec 16, 2012, including a ban on military-style assault weapons.

 

School shootings whenever occurred have had a political impact, spurring some to press for more stringent gun control laws. Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the author of an assault-weapons ban that lapsed in 2004, said she would introduce new legislation this week.

 

Gun rights advocates have countered that Connecticut already has among the strictest gun laws in the nation.

 

In the United States, the National Rifle Association is opposed to such laws, and some groups have called for fewer gun control laws. They cite cases of armed students ending shootings and halting further loss of life, and claiming that the prohibitions against carrying a gun in schools do not deter the gunmen. One such example is the Mercaz HaRav Massacre, where the attacker was not stopped by police but rather a student, Yitzhak Dadon, who stopped the attacker by shooting him with his personal firearm which he lawfully carried concealed. At a Virginia law school, there is a disputed claim that two students retrieved pistols from their cars and stopped the attacker without firing a shot. Also, at a Mississippi high school, the Vice Principal retrieved a firearm from his vehicle and then eventually stopped the attacker as he was driving away from the school. In other cases, such as shootings at Columbine and Red Lake High Schools, the presence of an armed police officer did nothing to prevent or shorten the shootings.

 

The problem lies with the second amendment to the United States Constitution which guarantees an individual a right to keep and bear arms. It is for self defense but the presence of a weapon only increases the likelihood of a person using it, even for an argument. Weapons are easily available to anyone above age of 18 in the states.

 

US President Obama noted it was the fourth time in his presidency he had needed to console a community after such an attack, following the shootings in Tucson, Arizona in January, 2011; Aurora, Colorado in July; and Oak Creek, Wisconsin in August.

 

US president Obama attends prayer vigil in grief-stricken Newtown, says America not doing enough to protect children but does not address calls for stricter gun control. US President Connecticut town shattered by Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting by youh Adam Lanza in Newtown of United States by a gunman used a military-style assault rifle to kill six adults and 20 first-graders before committing suicide. It seems that US President Obama is an intelligent leader but he is in a bad situation where his hands tied. US President has a divided house.

Malik equted Babri with 26/11 with intention to evoke Indian Muslims

 

Why did Malik equate Babri with 26/11? Why further did Rehman Malik deny his such equation ob Babri with 26/11? Why is Congress president silent? Why did Rehman Malik unsuccessfully try to evoke sentiments of Indian Muslims? Is there any link of this incident with coming 2014 election?

Jaitley slams Malik’s comment equating Babri with 26/11

The BJP today criticised visiting Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik’s controversial statement equating the Babri Masjid demolition with the 26/11 terror attacks, and termed it as very “unfortunate” and “provocative”.

“Its strange and unfortunate that the Pakistani Minister with just the commencement visit, seen to be commenting on the cross border terrorism emanating from Pakistan, and in the same breath speaking in terms of domestic developments in India,” said senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley while addressing the media here.

“Those comments are completely unfortunate, uncalled for and should really had been rebutted by the Indian ministers present there,” he added.

Malik, on his arrival in New Delhi on Friday, for the operationalisation of the liberalised visa agreement between India and Pakistan, had told reporters, “We do not want any 9/11. We do not want any Bombay blasts, we do not want any Samjhauta Express, we do not want any Babri mosque issue and we can work together not only for peace in Pakistan and India but also for the region.”

Expressing displeasure over the comment, Jaitley said “BJP has noticed, with some sense of concern the statement of the visiting minister from Pakistan.”

“Ordinarily we observe a discipline that we don’t comment on a visit of a foreign dignitary when the visit is on. However during a visit something which is very provocative is said, particularly when it goes unrebutted by the Indian Ministers present, a response is required and therefore we are constrained to make it,” he said.

Touching upon the agenda of the proposed meeting, Jaitley said, “It was broadly understood that the Pakistan will let the Indian Government know that the steps it is taking in relation to those guilty in 26/11, the expedition of trial in Pakistan, bringing people like Hafeez Saeed to book, giving of voice samples of those who were handlers.. these were really the issues.”

“Its regrettable that it went unchallenged, particularly when comments have come from a representative of a nation which has a dismal track record in relation to its own religious and ethnic minority and their rights,” he added.

Jaitley also took a dig at Pakistan’s Interior Minister over his comments on the issue of the torture of Kargil hero Captain Saurabh Kalia by the Pakistani Army.

“He was not expected to speculate on the issue of Major Kalia,” he said.
“I have not examined the case. It has just come to my notice…. when a fight is going on in the border, we really don’t know whether he died of a Pak bullet or he died of weather?,” Malik had said on Friday, stirring a controversy

Pakistan’s minority Hindus feel under attack

For the second time in less than two months, this month a Hindu temple has been attacked on the outskirts of Karachi. The small minority community already marginalized is now living in fear saying their cries of help from the Pakistan government are falling on deaf ears. 

Hindus make up about 2 per cent of Pakistan’s population of 180 million people. They have been facing endless atrocities and injustice in the country. The independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan has noted a worrisome increase in kidnappings of Hindu girls who are forced to embrace Islam

Persecution of Hindu, Christian & Other Minority Women in Pakistan Highlighted at Capitol Hill

he Hindu American Foundation (HAF) hosted a Capitol Hill Briefing last week to highlight the persecution of minority women in Pakistan. 

Persecution of Hindu, Christian & Other Minority Women in Pakistan Highlighted by Hindu American Foundation (HAF) :”An archaic and pernicious system officially prohibited by law, but openly practiced by Muslim landlords in conjunction with support from local politicians and police, this modern day form of slavery is characterized by patterns of abuse, illegal detention, physical violence, and sexual exploitation.” said Kalra.

There is a clear connection between militancy and extremism in Pakistan and the deterioration of women’s rights. 

 “One of the primary structural hindrances for Hindu women in Pakistan has been the state’s refusal to officially register Hindu marriages, which has deprived Hindu women access to basic rights and services,” said Tekchandani.  ”The passing of a Hindu Marriage Act, therefore, is imperative to the safety, and civil rights of Hindu women living in Pakistan.”

Rahul Gandhi’S Power of love and Nehru’s love affairs with Edwin Mountbatten

 

Rahul Gandhi’S Power of love vs. Narendra Modi’ Politics of anger: Both are bachelors. Who wants to follow power of spiritual love: New book reveals Edwina Mountbatten’s ‘spiritual’ affair with Pandit Nehru.

Rahul Gandhi’S Power of love vs. Narendra Modi’ Politics of anger: Both are bachelors. Who wants to follow power of Nahatma Gandhi’s love power of spiritual love with Sarla Devi and Nehru’s so called spiritual love with Lady Edwina Mountbatten? Details may be found at page 372 of the book: Silent assassins, Jan 11, 1966.

Pomela Mountbatten’s new book reveals Edwina Mountbatten’s ‘spiritual’ affair with Pandit Nehru. Edwina Mountbatten, who rubbed shoulders with royalty, danced the Charleston with Fred Astaire and let young men not only fall at her feet but into her bed as well, fell madly in love with India along with one of its new leaders – Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru – India’s first Prime Minister after independence.

On the surface, Edwina and her husband, Lord Louis Mountbatten, were the glitziest couple of their day but beneath the reality was separate beds, separate lives and a flurry of flings that set tongues wagging.

However, the young Pamela Mountbatten saw nothing untoward at first in her mother’s string of male friends as revealed in a fascinating, newly published memoir.

But in time, the ‘eccentricity’ of her family life would inevitably be a source of bewilderment and sadness.

Yet, three-quarters of a century on, the 83-year-old Pamela writes lovingly and forgivingly of a mother who partied, frolicked and fornicated with abandon — and often left her children for some wild venture.

From the start, there was a profound connection between Edwina and Nehru but Pamela saw more.

“A peace came over her mother,” the Daily Mail quoted Pamela as writing.

“She was easy to get along with; a sense of well-being emanated from her.

“She found in Panditji [Nehru] the companionship and equality of spirit and intellect that she craved. Each helped overcome loneliness in the other,” she wrote.

Mountbatten saw this too and let his wife get on with this new phase of her life. For him, Edwina’s new interest was a relief. It got her off his back.

“Her new-found happiness released him from her relentless late-night recriminations, the constant accusations that he didn’t understand her and was ignoring her,” she wrote.

The four of them — father, mother, daughter and prime minister — would walk out together, but always with Edwina and Nehru together side by side up ahead.

“My father and I would tactfully fall behind when they were deep in conversation. But we did not, at any time, feel excluded,” she wrote.

The Mountbattens slipped back into their old modus vivendi, ‘but it was particularly easy now, for my father trusted them both.

In later years, Pamela would pore over Nehru’s letters to her mother, ‘and I came to realise phase of her life. For him, Edwina’s new interest was a relief. It got her off his back.

“Her new-found happiness released him from her relentless late-night recriminations, the constant accusations that he didn’t understand her and was ignoring her,” she wrote.

In later years, Pamela would pore over Nehru’s letters to her mother, ‘and I came to realise how deeply he and my mother loved each other.

But Pamela is convinced that it was a spiritual and intellectual relationship, not a sexual one.

“Neither had time to indulge in a physical affair, and anyway the very public nature of their lives meant they were rarely alone,” she wrote

What was remarkable in all this — as seen through Pamela’s eyes — was her father’s dignity and forbearance, as it had been through all the ups and downs of his marriage to Edwina. He remained loyal to the end.

In 1960, aged 58, she died of a stroke on a tour of the Far East for a charity. She had requested to be buried at sea. As the coffin slipped below the water off the south coast of England, Pamela recalls ‘my father standing with tears streaming down his face. It was the only time I had ever seen him weep. He then kissed his wreath before throwing it into the sea.

It was the last act of a strange marriage but one which, in its own way, had worked. He had defied the gossip, kept up appearances and kept his family intact however unconventional the method.

There were apparently no scenes, no public scandal and, best of all, no acrimonious divorce. The credit for this Pamela gives unreservedly to him.

Similrity in US School Shooting and Gun battle in Peshawar

 Nancy Lanza loved guns, and often took her sons to one of the shooting ranges here in the suburbs northeast of New York City. It was one of her guns that was apparently used to take her life on Friday. Her killer was her son Adam Lanza, 20.

Pakistan loves terrorism and often infiltrates terrorists into India. Now gun battle is going on in Peshawar air port against its terrorists. Pakistan is responsible for 26/11.

What does this indicate?

 

NEWTOWN, Connecticut: Nancy Lanza loved guns, and often took her sons to one of the shooting ranges here in the suburbs northeast of New York City, where there is an active community of gun enthusiasts, her friends said. At a local bar, she sometimes talked about her gun collection.

It was one of her guns that was apparently used to take her life on Friday. Her killer was her son Adam Lanza, 20, who then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he killed 26 more people, 20 of them small children, before shooting himself, the authorities said.

Lanza’s fascination with guns became an important focus of attention on Saturday as investigators tried to determine what caused Lanza to carry out one of the worst massacres in the nation’s history.

Investigators have linked Lanza to five weapons: two powerful handguns, two traditional hunting rifles and a semiautomatic rifle that is similar to weapons used by troops in Afghanistan. Her son took the two handguns and the semiautomatic rifle to the school. Law enforcement officials said they believed the guns were acquired legally and were registered.

 

Militants-police gunbattle follows airport attack in Pakistan

Pakistan Police say they are engaged in a gunbattle with militants believed to have been involved in an attack on the military side of an international airport in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar. Police officer Shafqat Malik says the militants are holed up in a village.

9 killed, 30 injured as militants attack Pak airport.

 

Violence is currently the leading cause of death among young people in the United States according to Striving To Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere (STRYVE).

Schools in the United States are meant to be safe places where students can get an education. However, with the rise in violence among the youth in the last few years, schools have become less of a safe haven and more of a place where risky situations can happen at any time.

A time line done by Infoplease.com illustrates school violence in the past few years.

In April 1999, 14 students (including killers) and one teacher were killed and 23 others were wounded at Columbine High School in the nation’s deadliest school shooting. Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, had plotted for a year to kill at least 500 people and blow up their school. At the end of their hour-long rampage, they turned their guns on themselves.

In May 1999, Thomas Solomon injured six students at Heritage High School, 15, who was reportedly depressed after breaking up with his girlfriend in Conyers, Ga.

In February 2000, six-year-old Kayla Rolland was shot dead at Buell Elementary School near Flint, Mich. The assailant was identified as a six-year-old boy with a .32-caliber handgun.

In October 2002, Robert S. Flores, Jr., 41, a student at the nursing school at the University of Arizona, shot and killed three female professors and then himself.

In March 2005, Jeff Weise, 16, killed his grandfather and companion. Weise then arrived at school where he killed a teacher, a security guard, 5 students, and finally himself, leaving a total of 10 dead in Minnesota.

The list has grown in the past ten years.

List of Pakistan sponsored terrorists attacks in Inida is 100 times longer than the above school shootings in Uinted States.

Rahul’s Power of love? Indira rejected proposal of Spiritual love marriage

 

 

“When Indira reassured Mahatma Gandhi that her love for Feroze was much deeper than this, Gandhi suggested that they subscribe to his marital ideal of Brahmcharya and remain celibate after marriage. Indira, who was irate by this point, turned Mahatma Gandhi’s suggestion down flat, saying, ‘you can tell a couple not to get married …………but when they are married, to ask them to live a life of celibacy makes no sense. It can result only in bitterness and unhappiness,” Details may be found at page 372 of the book: Silent assassins, Jan 11, 1966.

 

Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on dec 15, 2012 accused Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi of practicing “politics of anger” and said it was time people switched to the power of “love” preached by Mahatma Gandhi for the state’s progress

The couplet of Tulsidas in Ramayan is “par updesh kushal bahutere, je aachrahi te nar na ghanere” (those who preach to the world but fail to live up to the same ideals count little in public life).

Indira rejected the proposal of spirtual marriage

Indira went Sevagram to meet Gandhi. Gandhi advised her as Nehru did. Indira, however remained firm on her decision, then Gandhi interrogated her about her sexual feelings for

Feroze and insisted that sexual attraction was no basis for a marriage.

 

When Indira reassured him that her love for Feroze was much deeper than this, Gandhi suggested that they subscribe to his marital ideal of Brahmcharya and remain celibate after marriage. Indira, who was irate by this point, turned Mahatma Gandhi’s suggestion down flat, saying, ‘you can tell a couple not to get married …………but when they are married, to ask them to live a life of celibacy makes no sense. It can result only in bitterness and unhappiness.

 

After hearing Indira, Gandhi gave his consent on the terms that they would marry after the approval of Nehru.

 

Above facts shows:

(1) That for Nehru and Gandhi, Marriage of Indira was less important than her becoming their political successor. Gandhi himself wanted that Indira would be groomed by Nehru as Gandhi made way for Nehru to be his successor instead of Subhash Chandra Bose.

 

(2) Indira and Feroze both were Left leaning youth and involved in the students’ wing connected to the communist party.

Edwina Mountbatten, who rubbed shoulders with royalty, danced the Charleston with Fred Astaire and let young men not only fall at her feet but into her bed as well, fell madly in love with India along with one of its new leaders – Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru – India’s first Prime Minister after independence.

On the surface, Edwina and her husband, Lord Louis Mountbatten, were the glitziest couple of their day but beneath the reality was separate beds, separate lives and a flurry of flings that set tongues wagging.

However, the young Pamela Mountbatten saw nothing untoward at first in her mother’s string of male friends as revealed in a fascinating, newly published memoir.

But in time, the ‘eccentricity’ of her family life would inevitably be a source of bewilderment and sadness.

Yet, three-quarters of a century on, the 83-year-old Pamela writes lovingly and forgivingly of a mother who partied, frolicked and fornicated with abandon — and often left her children for some wild venture.

From the start, there was a profound connection between Edwina and Nehru but Pamela saw more.

“A peace came over her mother,” the Daily Mail quoted Pamela as writing.

“She was easy to get along with; a sense of well-being emanated from her.

“She found in Panditji [Nehru] the companionship and equality of spirit and intellect that she craved. Each helped overcome loneliness in the other,” she wrote.

Mountbatten saw this too and let his wife get on with this new phase of her life. For him, Edwina’s new interest was a relief. It got her off his back.

“Her new-found happiness released him from her relentless late-night recriminations, the constant accusations that he didn’t understand her and was ignoring her,” she wrote.

The four of them — father, mother, daughter and prime minister — would walk out together, but always with Edwina and Nehru together side by side up ahead.

“My father and I would tactfully fall behind when they were deep in conversation. But we did not, at any time, feel excluded,” she wrote.

The Mountbattens slipped back into their old modus vivendi, ‘but it was particularly easy now, for my father trusted them both.

In later years, Pamela would pore over Nehru’s letters to her mother, ‘and I came to realise phase of her life. For him, Edwina’s new interest was a relief. It got her off his back.

But Pamela is convinced that it was a spiritual and intellectual relationship, not a sexual one.

“Neither had time to indulge in a physical affair, and anyway the very public nature of their lives meant they were rarely alone,” she wrote

What was remarkable in all this — as seen through Pamela’s eyes — was her father’s dignity and forbearance, as it had been through all the ups and downs of his marriage to Edwina. He remained loyal to the end.

In 1960, aged 58, she died of a stroke on a tour of the Far East for a charity. She had requested to be buried at sea. As the coffin slipped below the water off the south coast of England, Pamela recalls ‘my father standing with tears streaming down his face. It was the only time I had ever seen him weep. He then kissed his wreath before throwing it into the sea.

It was the last act of a strange marriage but one which, in its own way, had worked. He had defied the gossip, kept up appearances and kept his family intact however unconventional the method.

There were apparently no scenes, no public scandal and, best of all, no acrimonious divorce. The credit for this Pamela gives unreservedly to him.

Power of “love” and Politics of Anger vs.Couplet of Tulsidas in Ramayan

 

Rahul Gandhi should go through the couplet of Tulsidas before preaching Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi about Power of Love and Politics of Anger.

                           

Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi on dec 15, 2012 accused Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi of practicing “politics of anger” and said it was time people switched to the power of “love” preached by Mahatma Gandhi for the state’s progress http://www.newsanalysisindia.com/post/Spirtual-Lover-of-Mahatma-Gandhi.aspx

 

The couplet of Tulsidas in Ramayan is “par updesh kushal bahutere, je aachrahi te nar na ghanere” (those who preach to the world but fail to live up to the same ideals count little in public life).

                                                             

Rahul Gandhi vs. Narendra Modi: Both are bachelors. Who wants to follow power of Nahatma Gandhi’s and Nehru’s love power of spiritual love with Sarla Devi and the same so called spiritual love of Nehru with lady Mountbatten?

 

Further who is adopting Politics of Anger, Narendra Modi or Rahul Gandhi?

 

News of 11/11/11: Cong posters project Rahul as angry young man ahead of UP polls, leads by Rahul Gandhi.

 

Cong posters project Rahul as angry young man ahead of UP polls

Grapevine has been rife that Rahul Gandhi is set to take reins of the Congress party. Going by the latest posters being released by the party for its election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress general secretary seems set for the transition.
 
Headlines Today accessed these posters that hint at Rahul’s big political makeover. In these posters, Rahul stands out as he is seen no longer flanked by mother Sonia Gandhi or Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
 
The only association of his illustrious pedigree is reflected by images of his great-grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru. The link with Nehru is made to project Rahul’s vision of an industrial revolution in UP to draw parallels with what the nation’s first prime minister famously piloted in the late 1950s.
 
The image that these posters seek to portray is that of an angry young man who wants to change the face of the state. The posters cry hoarse about spiralling crime, industrial backwardness, social inequities, the issues on which Rahul wants to pin down the Mayawati-led BSP government and other rivals in the state

 

Why so angry?

 

According to a 2006 Harvard study, 10 million adult men in the United States are so angry, they’re sick. In fact, their disease has a name: intermittent explosive disorder, or IED

 

 

Angry Youths (angry men) in the night dreams

 

Who enters their world and forces them to face themselves!

 

They know they will wake from dreams!

 

They have no idea what time and where they are! They have no idea how they will ended up in these purgatory, find themselves between wakefulness and sleep!

 

They have no idea how to escape the nightmare, or even if they can. They are absolutely powerless to stop dreams, to regain control of themselves, because they can’t  even move.

 

They are frozen and held captive by their own body! http://www.newsanalysisindia.com/post/Angry-Young-Men-Rahul-vs-Sukhbir.aspx
