India is already a Hindu Rashtra - Shiv Sena August 03, 2015 17:42

The Shiv Sena on Monday has said India is "one hundred percent a Hindu nation" and the community has no reason to spread terror in its own country. Earlier Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has accused Congress of weakening the fight against terror by coining the term 'Hindu terrorism'."Giving terror a saffron colour and playing politics over it was a cunning and selfish move. Terming Hindus as terrorists and putting a veil over green terror sponsored by Pakistan is being dishonest towards your own country," an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said. "India basically belongs to the Hindus and one hundred percent it is a Hindu nation. Hindus have no reason to spread terror in their own country," it said.The "rumours" spread by Congress have given strength to Pakistan's conspiracies and "have filled the chests of ISI and LeT with pride", Shiv sena alleged. "Were Ajmal Kasab and Afzal Guru sponsored by Hindu organisations? Did Pakistan make a certain 'Kashinath' into Kasab and send him to India to spread terror?" the Sena asked."In this House in 2013, the then Home Minister (P Chidambaram) had coined the new terminology 'Hindu terrorism' in order to change the course of probe. Because of this, we have not been able to fight terrorism as strongly as we would be. As a consequence of coining the new term of 'Hindu terrorism', Hafiz Sayeed (LeT founder) of Pakistan had congratulated the then Home Minister. Our government will never allow such a shameful situation again," Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said.It has become a fashion for the political parties to coin everything related to Hinduism in the bad light. The so called pseudo secularists are fighting for human rights of the terrorists, while they do not raise even their finger for supporting the victims of terror. These intellectuals do not have enough intelligence to see the tolerance Hindu community have displayed for upholding the real secularism. Anybody with a little common sense can see the propagators of terrorism is not Hindus. They should also observe that only because of that this country is having majority Hindus, all the other religious believers are able to co-exist peacefully in this country.The pseudo secularists try their level best to belittle Hinduism. But they are not able realize that they will not be or do not have the guts to criticize other religions. These people are thankless and shameless to tell everything against Hinduism and still carry the Hindu names. It is shame for the people of this country to have these morons in our country.By Premji

The girl was just 9 years old, when she was found by those rangers and surprisingly, even she was deaf and dumb.   A welfare organization in Pakistan supported Geetha to grow her older and in fact, they gave a separate prayer room, where posters of Hindu deities like Ganesha are pasted. Geetha is currently 23 years old and so, the organization authorities are planning for her marriage. Geetha refuses to marry until her parents are found When asked about this, Geetha refused to marry, until she finds her parents. When the situation is like this, Bajrangi Bhaijaan hit the theaters and is even released in Pakistan. Several people, who know Geetha, related Bajrangi Bhaijaan story to her and then the news was out. Indian High Commission supports Geetha     Knowing Geetha situation, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that, the Indian High Commission will meet the girl and assures her all kinds of support.

25 Congress MPs suspended from parliament August 03, 2015 17:05

Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Monday has suspended 25 Congress MPs for five days for unruly behaviour in the House. An all-party meeting failed to break the parliamentary logjam, with the Congress and the NDA are reiterating their stated positions on the resignations over Lalit Modi and Vyapam issues."The Congress stuck to its demand of 'first resignations and then only the house will run'. However, other parties are of the view that the house should function and there should be debates and discussions on a lot of issues, from regional to national," Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said.As Ms Mahajan announced about the punishment, the Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandopadhyay requested her to take a more lenient view, but the Speaker did not relent.It has become a regular practice by the congress to stall the parliament, even after the government agreed for discussion on the matter. The congress that has lost the election and reduced to a mere 44 members which made them ineligible for the post of opposition leader, is determined to stall the development of the country. The irresponsible behavior of the congress members has affected the welfare measures announced by the Modi government. Congress is not able to digest their defeat at the hands of the country’s electorate.The arrogant and adamant attitude of the congress has been viewed by the people of the country, who will be holding hands with Prime Minister Modi to have a congress mukt Bharath. The days of congress are numbered.By Premji

Tips to choose right jewellery for monsoon August 03, 2015 15:05

Usually during monsoon season, moisture and humidity levels will be high and this may damage your jewellery. So, experts advise to go for plastic jewellery items that come in bright and vibrant colours. Also they suggest avoiding metallic jewellery during monsoon. Here are some simple tips that help in choosing correct jewellery. Avoid wearing delicate jewellery as much as possible in the rain as this can cause some metals to tarnish. Choose plastic jewellery that comes in bright and vibrant colours. It is advised not to prefer more accessories during this season. Prefer wearing one bright neck piece, a broad bangle or a long earring to keep you comfortable and also stylish. If you choose wearing long earrings, keep your neck bare or wear a chunky neck piece and pair it with a small stud or ear cuff.Broad bangles and watches with multi-coloured big dials or watches with coloured straps are also great ideas as they alone cover a greater portion of your hand and also make you look trendy. Try to choose water proof jewellery during this season. Metals like gold and platinum don't require a lot of care, but choose wearing simple ones. Silver jewellery has a tendency of turning black and in monsoon it is more prone to corrosion. So, try to avoid them. By Lizitha

Obama strict of cuts in greenhouse gas emission cuts for power plants August 03, 2015 14:52

President Barack Obama will impose steeper cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. power plants, senior administration officials said. “Climate change is not a problem for another generation,” Mr. Obama said. “Not anymore.” Mr. Obama has mandated a 30 percent nationwide cut in carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, when compared to 2005 levels. According to Obama administration officials, the final version, will follow extensive consultations with environmental groups and the energy industry, which will require a 32 percent cut."Power plants are the single biggest source of harmful carbon pollution that contributes to climate change," said Obama. "But until now, there have been no federal limits to the amount of that pollution that those plants can dump into the air." "For the sake of our kids, for the health and safety of all Americans, that's about to change."Gina McCarthy, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, insisted that the rules were "reasonable" and "achievable". "They can cut carbon pollution in whatever way makes the most sense to them," she said. "No plant has to meet them alone or all at once, they have to meet them as part of the grid and over time." "I would never accept a scenario where affordability or reliability came into question," McCarthy said."These will burden Americans with increasingly high-costs of an essential service and a less reliable electric grid for delivering it," said Hal Quinn, president of the National Mining Association.The proposal for 32-percent collective reduction has drawn fierce opposition from the Republican Party, which has described the measures as "overreach," "heavy-handed" and said they would have "devastating consequences for our economy." In a video, Obama has said that the global warming and the reasons behind it were backed up by scientific data, but some Republican opponents disputed the existence of any global warming and others have cast their doubt on whether humans are to be blamed for the phenomenon.Laying out the points on how climate change is a threat to the economy, health, wellbeing and security of America and added that time is of the essence, Obama said in a video.Even when natural gas is gaining popularity, hundreds of coal-fired power plants are dotted across the country to provide about 37 percent of the US electricity supply, ahead of natural gas and nuclear energy.By Premji
