MEA confirms no Indian casualty in Munich shooting incident July 23, 2016 12:15

An 18-year-old German-Iranian national has opened fire in Munich’s Olympia mall, killing nine and injuring 16 others before shooting himself dead. Armed with a handgun, the attacker had opened fire at a nearby McDonalds restaurant, before carrying out the rampage in Olympia Mall. The motive behind the attack is yet to be ascertained.The Indian Embassy in Germany tweeted saying that all Indians in Munich are safe and they could reach out to the consulate in case of ‘any difficulty’. No Indian casualty has been reported from the Munich shooting where a lone gunman has killed at least nine people and later shot himself. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had spoken to Indian Ambassador in Germany and confirmed that no Indian has been harmed in the attack. The shooter opened fire near a fast-food restaurant and then again at the nearby Olympia shopping center in the north of the Bavarian capital, just before 6 p.m. local time (1600 UTC). Police at one point engaged and shot at him, only for him to escape. They later found him dead, killed by a self-inflicted gunshot. Munich police chief Hubertus Andra described the operation as "without doubt my most difficult day" in the role. "Three youngsters" were among the dead, Andra said, while children were also among the injured. "The motive, and the background of the crime are still totally unclear, the investigators are working full tilt and will continue into the night," Andrä said, adding that the process should move relatively quickly, as police were confident that they had identified the suspect. Defining whether the shooting was a case of somebody running amok, or an act of terror, would require more information on a possible motive, he said. Initially, police had worked on the assumption of "up to three" shooters; Andrä said that eyewitness reports forced police to presume that more than one person was involved. Two people had left the scene at speed in a car, prompting suspicion, but police investigated them: "They have nothing to do with the incident," police chief Andrä said. French President Francois Hollande called the shooting a "terrorist attack" and a "disgusting act that aims to foment fear in other European countries.""Solidarity with Germany in the challenge they are facing at the moment," wrote French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.By Premji

Terror monger Zakir Naik praises Modi July 22, 2016 16:53

The preacher televangalist Zakir Naik who is being alleged for coercing and forcing people to convert to islam and for joining the ISIS has now claimed that he is an Indian Muslim and praises Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The terror monger is being investigated by agencies for the alleged illegal activities.In an interview, Zakir Naik praised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for reaching out to Muslim countries. The Mumbai-based preacher called terror outfit Islamic State or ISIS ‘un-Islamic’ and said he is proud to be an Indian Muslim.“Modi is the only prime minister of India who has visited so many Muslim countries in just two years. This will strengthen relations between India and other Muslim countries. It will strengthen relationship of Hindus and Muslims too. If his intention is to maintain unity between Hindus and Muslims and between India and other Muslim countries, I am totally for him,” Naik said“Jihad means to strive and struggle to make the society better. It also stands for self-defence. But the Indian media has hyped jihad. Besides non-Muslims, it is misunderstood even by Muslims. IS is killing innocent people which, according to the Quran, is a sin against humanity. I call them anti-Islam state. They have given a wrong meaning to Islam. If someone killed Muslims in Gujarat that does not justify killing innocent Hindus in Mumbai,” Naik said.“I have never forced anybody to embrace Islam. Thousands of people have embraced Islam after hearing my speeches but God has given them guidance. If someone wants to come in the religion of peace, I cannot stop him. Under Article 25 of the Indian Constitution, one has the right to practice and propagate one’s religion,” said the Islamic scholar. Zakir Naik said ”I am very happy and proud to be an Indian and an Indian Muslim.”By Premji
