India should be declared ‘Hindu Rashtra’ - Uddhav Thackeray July 25, 2016 13:34

The Shiv Sena has demanded that India be declared a "Hindu Rashtra." In an interview to the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna, Sena president Uddhav Thackeray lashed out at the Centre over the situation in Kashmir and said that for the common man, nothing had changed under the new government."Once the elections are here, the Prime Minister tours states. Then he had also gone to Kashmir. Why doesn't the Prime Minister go to Kashmir now and stand behind Hindu brethren?" questioned Uddhav, adding that the Shiv Sena is willing to fight for the sake of Hindutva."What are the Hindus in other political parties doing? Or are they ashamed of calling themselves Hindus?" he lashed out. Uddhav said that there is no option other than to declare India as "Hindu Rashtra." "Enough of pandering to secularism. Secularism has led to injustice against Hindus," he alleged."It is difficult to understand what is happening in the country," charged Uddhav, "the lives of the common man continue as it is. The fog of uncertainty over their lives has not lifted." "The government has changed, but did the lives of common people change? What are you going to do about it?" he asked.The Sena chief said: "If speaking about Hindutva is a crime, at least shed the false pretensions of secularism - as the country is now stuck between the two (Hindutva and secularism). "When Hindus are being targetted and attacked, where are these secularists? What about the Sanatan Sanstha, which is being crushed like a snake? We don't support them, but let the truth about the Sanatan Sanstha come out once and for all. Merely talking and labelling them will not serve the cause of justice," Thackeray said."The Hindus are in a majority, yet they are subjected to atrocities. They elected this government with the hope and confidence of improving their lot, but the same old story as before (Congress rule) continues," Thackeray said."We have to decide now, enough of this 'secular' stuff. The only option left is to declare India a 'Hindu Rashtra', if attacks on Hindus have to be prevented," Thackeray said in his annual birthday eve interview.By Premji

Visa extension denied for Chinese journalists July 25, 2016 12:51

Chinese media, which is familiar with journalists being thrown out of Beijing, has accused India of "having a suspicious mind" and has threatened it with "serious consequences", for expelling three of its journalists.India has expelled the Chinese journalists because it believed that they were impersonating people to gain access to sensitive and restricted areas and were therefore a security threat.The state-run Global Times pooh-poohed these reports and said that New Delhi's real reason was to take "revenge due to the Nuclear Suppliers Group membership issue". “If India is taking revenge due to the NSG membership issue, there will be serious consequences,” the editorial in the Global Times said.“There were reports that India expelled the journalists because it believed they were mocking people to gain access to restricted areas and hence were a security threat in Delhi and Mumbai. Also, there were reports of meeting Dalai Lama,” stated the editorial."On the visa issue this time, we should take actions to display our reaction. We at least should make a few Indians feel Chinese visas are also not easy to get," Global Times wrote."Crowned by Western public opinion as the world's biggest democracy, the Indians have a strong sense of pride," Global Times wrote. “The act has sent a negative message to China and communication between the two countries will be affected,” stated the editorial.The journalists were impersonating people and meeting with Tibetan activists exiled from China, Global Times quoted one of its own former India-based journalists as saying there was "absolutely no need for" Chinese journalists to impersonate anyone."It is completely normal for reporters to request interviews with the Dalai Lama group," said Lu Pengfei, former India-based special correspondent with the Global Times, according to the article. "No matter whether Chinese reporters apply for a long-term or a temporary journalist visa, they will come across many troubles. Complaints about difficulties of acquiring an Indian visa have also been heard from other Chinese who deal with India. In contrast, it's much easier for Indians to get a Chinese visa," it added.By Premji
