Highlights 8th July 2006


GLOBAL JIHAD: The headquarters of Islamic terrorism is London, England, where the Anglo-American Establishment sponsors the radical "Muslim Brotherhood" in order to advance its long-term goal of plutocratic global dictatorship.These globalists have fabricated a bogus "war on terror" to crush the remaining vestiges of nationalism and democracy in both Muslim countries and the West. Expect more incitements like the current "Miss World " imbroglio to convince both sides the other endangers its way of life


[BANGLADESH] Border people not only inhabit and cultivate those remote areas, they also form our first line of defense against occupation, an occupation that is encouraged through void. If BSF succeed in cleansing border area of those people through killing and intimidation, then there will be a new border; and there will be again cleansing through killing and there will be again a new border; until Bangladesh is reduced to such an expanse that every people is within rifle range of BSF. During last AL regime, one top-ranking military official had put his sermon: "Protecting every inch of land through blood has become obsolete an idea now-a-days." Perhaps he tried to appease pro-Indian section of the then ruling party and the blindly pro-Indian intelligentsia (the Bharot-panthee Rajakars), to realize his vested interests after.

3. [
BANGLADESH] When contacted, Lt Col Asadur Rahman of 41 Rifles Battalion said the BDR and BSF traded about 600 gunshots, leaving a Bangladeshi girl injured. He, however, could not confirm the death of the two BSF men during the shootout.Local people said they have heard over 1200 shots during the border fight that continued until noon with intervalsThe injured Bangladeshi minor girl is Halima Khatun, 12, daughter of Abdul Haque of village Komorpur. Halima received bullet while she was asleep at their house in the frontier village.

4. [
INDIA] The Indian Navy was the first to get these missiles, and Indian generals also want to install BrahMos missiles on the Sukhoi Su-30-MKI Flanker multi-purpose fighters being produced by New Delhi under a Russian license. BrahMos Airspace Ltd. was established in India in 1998 by the Machine Building Research and Production Association (NPO) from Reutov, outside Moscow, and the Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of the Indian Defense Ministry for the purpose of mastering production of these supersonic anti-ship missiles. Company documents said the new joint venture would develop, produce, market and sell BrahMos cruise missiles.

5. [
INDIA] India has given a security guarantee to Sri Lanka in case of an LTTE misadventure in the hinterland, to which India would respond "appropriately". Officials said that during talks with his Lankan counterpart, the Indian foreign secretary, Shyam Saran, assured that Sri Lanka's territorial integrity was paramount to India. India will respond to the situation with all available resources, including a military response.

6. [
INDIA] The Government of India has sanctioned construction of new border outposts (BoPs) of the Border Security Force (BSF) along the Asom-Bangladesh border, which will considerably improve surveillance along the international border. BSF sources told The Assam Tribune that Dhubri district of Asom has around 134 kilometres of international border including around 50 kilometres of riverine with Bangladesh and at present the BSF has 40 BoPs along the border to keep vigilance to prevent infiltration of foreigners and smuggling. Sources revealed that the Government of India has sanctioned construction of five additional BoPs along the international border, which would improve surveillance along the border, as the gap between the BoPs would be reduced considerably.


7. [
BANGLADESH] Compared to Bangladesh's neighbouring countries, one of which claims to be the world's largest democracy but controls its minorities through dropping bombs from sky, carpet bombing, another one of its neighbouring countries constitutionally declared its minorities as non-citizes and exterminates them, one can easily say Bangladeshi minorities live in relative safe heaven in Bangladesh with its relatively higher percentage in government jobs, enjoying citizenship rights and their democratic representation. No doubt, there is still room for improvement always through good will and mutul appreciation.

8. [
INDIA] Nathu-la is also set to bring immense benefits to Bangladesh too. When Changrabandha border post in Jalpaiguri on Indo-Bangladesh border will become operative, Chittagong via Jamuna River Bridge would be much closer to Lhasa than Kolkata port. And China would definitely try to utilise better road and all-weather port facilities at Chittagong. And from there to other countries like Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries.

10. [
INDIA] The increasingly common, business-centric view of India suppresses more facts than it reveals. Recent accounts of the alleged rise of India barely mention the fact that the country's $728 per capita gross domestic product is just slightly higher than that of sub-Saharan Africa and that, as the 2005 United Nations Human Development Report puts it, even if it sustains its current high growth rates, India will not catch up with high-income countries until 2106. Nor is India rising very fast on the report's Human Development index, where it ranks 127, just two rungs above Myanmar and more than 70 below Cuba and Mexico. Despite a recent reduction in poverty levels, nearly 380 million Indians still live on less than a dollar a day. Malnutrition affects half of all children in India, and there is little sign that they are being helped by the country's market reforms, which have focused on creating private wealth rather than expanding access to health care and education. Despite the country's growing economy, 2.5 million Indian children die annually, accounting for one out of every five child deaths worldwide; and facilities for primary education have collapsed in large parts of the country (the official literacy rate of 61 percent includes many who can barely write their names). In the countryside, where 70 percent of India's population lives, the government has reported that about 100,000 farmers committed suicide between 1993 and 2003.

11. [
NEPAL] While the army adhered to its loyalty to the crown despite being re-christened Nepal Army from the earlier Royal Nepalese Army to remove its association with monarchy, Nepal's judiciary has decided to clip the king's influence on judges.Nepal's constitution gives the king the power to appoint judges. Though parliament axed the king's executive and legislative powers, it has not curbed his judicial authority. But now, the Judicial Council, comprising of the chief justice and other judges, has decided to change the provision.

12. [
NEPAL] Maoist rebels in Nepal have angrily denounced a government move to ask the UN to monitor the number of weapons held by both sides ahead of elections. They say that the move should not have been made without consulting them. Both sides clinched a landmark power-sharing deal last month after the king abandoned direct rule in April. Meanwhile the government has extended the tenure of a judicial commission formed to probe alleged atrocities against pro-democracy activists. A spokesman for the commission told the BBC that it is now expected to furnish its report by September this year.

13. [
PAKISTAN] There is a whiff of "regime change" in the air these days, but not where you might expect it. Not in Iraq, where the conservative U.S.-backed Shiites are already in power. Not in Iran, where White House threats have served to unite, rather than divide, that country. But in Pakistan, where President Pervez Musharraf has recently fallen out of U.S. favor.


14. [
BANGLADESH] The most wanted criminals of Dhaka, now in hiding in India, seem to have been disappointed at the major political parties' apparent lack of enthusiasm about the idea of engaging the goons for advantage in the upcoming general elections. Some of the notorious criminals are, however, still optimistic about a change of mind of, at the least, a section of the politicians immediately before the polls. Neither the ruling BNP nor the main opposition Awami League has so far invited the crime lords to work for them, although the elections are barely five months away, sources in the underworld said. The major parties used the services of the 23 criminals on the police's most-wanted lists during previous elections, the sources said.


[FLASH]Two Pakistani nations and six other Islamists were arrested by Bangladeshi police on suspicions they might have connection with some extremist groups in southern Jhalkathi town Friday night. The Pakistanis and the others claimed they are the members of a religious group "Dawat-e-Islami" (Invitation Islami) and they were arrested from a mosque in Jhalkathi, 263 km from Dhaka. Police and the private television channel Ntv on Saturday said the team of eight persons reached Jhalkathi from southern Barisal district in the morning, but their dissimilar talks creates suspicion in the minds of local people, who informed police. Police then arrested them Friday night and recovered some Islamic books from them. Police officer Habibul Islam when contacted by phone said they will be interrogated rigorously. A Pakistani national Golam Sabbir was quoted as saying he had visited Bangladesh twice earlier and every time he stayed for three months.

15. [BANGLADESH] The leading political parties such as Awami League, B.N.P. Jatiya Party, Jamaat-I-Islami Bangladesh etc. also attacked on one another in many different times. Presently, the names of various Islamic militant groups have been heard in the cases of bomb and grenade explosions for the last 5 years, such as Harkatul Zihad, Hijbut Tahrir, Hijbut Taohit, Sahaba-Sainik Parishad, Talamiz-I-Islam, Jama'atul Mujahidin Bangladesh (JMB), Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh (JMJB), etc. Many claim that Jama'atul Mujahidin Bangladesh (JMB), Harkatul Zihad, Ahle Hadith and other Islamic militant groups, which were involved in major bomb-attacks in the last five years, are either secret wings of Jamaat-I-Islami Bangladesh or its patronized organizations. Generally all parties, either governmental or opposite, rear terrorists, who dare to commit any fatal crime. 6. The Torrents of Illegal Weapons and Ammunition: The availability of weapons and ammunition can turn a sober nation into aggressive one. An illiterate and poor people, empowered by weapons, will be prone to committing terrible crimes. At the time of war, Indian government supplied arms including bombs, grenades and mines to freedom-fighters as well as trained them about how to use explosives. As a result of these, after liberation, 1972-1975 years were highly chaotic, and frequent bomb-bursts occurred all over the country. Even after the liberation, the supplies of illegal arms and ammunition were intruded in Bangladesh through Indian borders and are still getting intruded. There is an evidence of the supply of illegal arms and ammunition including 233 grenades, seized by the army in border areas in November, 1974.

16. [
BANGLADESH] A Bangladesh weekly newspaper office was reported to be bombed. It was alleged that an Islamist organization was behind the bombing incident. According to a report filed by Dr. Richard Benkin, on 05 July, at 11:35pm, local time, two explosions rocked the office of Weekly Blitz, the independent newspaper of maverick editor, Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury. Report went on to add that Choudhury was not on the premises at the time of the bomb explosion, and report reveals that no one was injured in the explosions.

17. [
BANGLADESH] Investigators believe that none of the incidents actually had anything to do with internal politics of either the Awami League or the BNP. The forces behind the carnage have succeeded to remain invisible because of the general lack of political will to uncover the truth, punish the real criminals and take effective measures to protect the nation from such brutal acts.The intelligence agencies in its several reports indicated that Islamist forces were taking the opportunity of the situation.

18. [
BANGLADESH - Book Review- CHT 'The Chittagong Hill Tracts: A Victim of Indian Intervention By Mohammad Zainal Abedin - Reviewed by A K Zaman] The writer has indicated that Indian North-East region bordering CHT is geo-politically and strategically very important and volatile. Besides, this region is also rich in natural and mineral resources. In fact, CHT area is also considered as sensitive and strategically significant from Indian defence and security point of view. The writer truly reflected the intervention and involvement of India in order to destabilize the CHT region to help her to subdue insurgency in one hand and to get direct access to North-East region. On the other hand this will also enable her to contain China. The writer has pin-pointed that India uses the Chakma insurgents to keep constant pressure on Bangladesh and weaken it slowly and swallow it finally. He has precisely asserted that by doing this India will be able to intrude its own citizens through 'push-in' in CHT area from its North-East region. The writer has cautioned about the pernicious tendency of India. He showed arguments that where India herself has been ruthlessly suppressing and torturing the innocent tribal people of North-East and Kashmir with a view to occupying their lands. The writer has also proved that the implicit presence of India trained insurgents in CHT area will simultaneously jeopardize the interest of the Bengalis as well as the tribals of CHT.

19. [
INDIA] Police have succeded in identifying the check posts and the route taken by the terrorist involved in the attack which revealed that they came from Bangladesh, Inspector General of Police (Faizabad) A K Gupta told newsmen here on Thursday. Enough evidence has been gathered about the route and activities of the arrested terrorists, but it could not be divulged due to security reasons, he said.


20. [
INDIA - North East] "It's not only the Pakistan's Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) agency which is aiding and abetting the North East India insurgents. Even the United States of America's Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)," said Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar. "ISI is still active in Bangladesh and continues to back North East India insurgents with the full support of the CIA," Sarkar said adding that he has communicated to the Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on the CIA's involvements - hand in glove with the Pakistani's intelligence agency to "aid and abet" the North East militants outfits.

21. [
INDIA - North East] According to premier intelligence agencies, the Shiliguri corridor faces threat not only from this pattern of free movement of personnel and goods through the border areas, but also from insurgents operating from Bhutan and particularly in Assam. The United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) militants have been using the corridor for their movement for a long time. The recent emergence of another insurgent outfit, called the Kamtapur Liberation Organisation (KLO),7 in north Bengal, is adding to the worries of the security forces. Intelligence reports indicate that, in 1993, certain members of the Rajbongshi community belonging to the ranks of the All Kamtapur Students' Union (AKSU) approached ULFA cadres in the Kokrajhar district of Assam and sought arms training from them.

INDIA - ULFA] There are two ways of looking at the shift in ULFA's posture. First, of course, is the most common approach accepted by analysts, which focuses on ULFA's emerging compulsions and its links with the Bangladesh government. Concomitant to such an approach is the need for the Indian government to respond in terms of the increasing foreign (read Bangladeshi and Inter Service Intelligence [ISI], Pakistan's external intelligence agency) promotion of the ULFA. This perspective, however, fails to assess the threat in its entirety. What is missed is the more important element in the shift: a tactical transformation in the social base of the ULFA.This shift is probably analogous to the vote-bank politics practiced by established political parties in India. This shift neutralises the erosion in the traditional support base of the ULFA in Assamese society, and widens its base among the immigrant community, who are, in no measure, numerically insignificant. As M.S. Prabhakara noted.

[INDIA - ULFA] The official said that considering the "relatively small amount (of Rs 15 lakh) in comparison to crores of rupees that the outfit normally demands, it is obvious that lower cadres of the Ulfa are involved who have the clearance and signature from the top brass".

24. [INDIA - ULFA] Amidst all the hue and cry, four ULFA cadres from western Asom alleged that the chairman of the outfit was in hand in globe to eliminate the cadres and leaders from lower Asom. In an e-mail message to a section of Guwahati based scribes on June 16 last, four cadres namely Bijoy Kalita, Rudra Barua, Hemanta Kalita and Kamal Ahmed claimed that ULFA political chief Arabinda Rajkhowa had maintained a hidden agenda to defuse the leaders from lower Asom in the outfit. More shockingly, the group alleged that few missing ULFA leaders including Benning Rabha, Abhijit Deka and Nilu Chakravarty (who were missing after the Bhutan operation) were killed by the outfit cadres following the directive of Mr Rajkhowa. The ULFA chief immediately rejected the allegation and termed it as a motivated attempt to malign the image of ULFA. But the very next day, the four cadres once again challenged that their allegation were based on facts. The four cadres had come out with more allegations against Mr Rajkhowa very recently.

25. [INDIA- NSCN] This is Muivah's second visit in less than two years and his chairman, Isak Chisi Swu, who is much older, has returned to his base in Manila and Bangkok after the initial rounds of talks with the Indian government on the Nagas' future. Muivah is the main force here who sets the pace for negotiations; others follow him. This is worth pondering, especially in the absence of an influential and equally articulate and skilled second rung of leadership within the organisation, which could take over from Muivah and Swu eventually.

26. [
INDIA - NSCN] The chairman of the NSCN (IM), Isak Chishi Swu, in a statement issued on the occasion of the 25th Republic Day of the outfit, has said that the NSCN would never enter into any agreement against the will of the Naga people nor would it take any decision at the expense of their rights. Isak Swu, whose statement was read out in his absence at the Republic Day celebrations held at the NSCN (IM)'s council headquarters at 'Camp Hebron' also extended friendship to the Nagas' neighbours, asserting that the Nagas cannot live in isolation from their neighbours and Naga people have to depend on their neighbours and their neighbours on, Naga people for peace and prosperity.

27. [
INDIA - NSCN] The NSCN (IM) has today rubbished the statements of K Padmanabhaiah, the Emissary of the Indian Prime Minister to the peace talks that the former was working to have a "federal relationship" within the Union of India. Th Muivah: "We will not distance ourselves from taking on the issues and we always mean what we say." Talking to an Amsterdam based Naga International Support Center (NISC), NSCN (IM) General Secretary Th Muivah said they had not discussed anything with regard to the federal relationship within the Union of India.


28. [
BANGLADESH-DGFI] In an unprecedented move, the Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI) and some Islamic political parties are preventing the Bangladesh Bank (BB) from circulating its recently finalised new guidelines for Islamic banks. Going out of its jurisdiction, DGFI in a report to the finance ministry recommended that the central bank forms the guidelines in line with the wishes of a focus group comprising 'Islamic economists, bankers and Shariah Council experts'. The central bank should not modify or add any idea to the focus group recommended guidelines, wrote DGFI. The report all along echoed the recommendations of various Islamic groups and advised the central bank on how to protect the interest and image of the four-party alliance government.

29. [
BANGLADESH - R&AW] Indian Professionals working in ADB, ESCAP, World Bank (e.g. Proful C. Patel) etc overtly and covertly push Indian agenda forward at all times. Thus they have managed to materialize their sinister plan (I use instead of conventional design) on a far longer, tortuous Asian Highway route through insurgent-infested, hilly northeast India; elbowing out shorter, straighter route through peaceful Bangladesh. Like a drop on arum leaves, we have lone Anwar Chowdhury in the UK High Commission, here. He hails from greater Sylhet, the part of Assam that came out of Indian Union through referendum and he comfortably speaks in Sylheti (more appropriately Sunamganji) dialect. But he too is silent over BSF killings. He is rather busy with the notorious Tuesday Group poking their collective nose into our purely Bangladeshi affairs.

30. [
BANGLADESH - R&AW] It's a deadly serious matter needing attention at all levels of Bangladesh society. What have Hindus or Dalits got to do with Buddhists and Christians? It's a fiction organised by Indians Intelligence with the help of of a few internal agents. Is it not amazing that an Indian representative of Amnesty International sits Indian RAW , BHBCUC and Daniel Pipes, a vile and clever extremist thug, to discuss Bangladesh? Who is discussing the master abuser of Human Rights: India? No one. While Sikhs, Dalits (Untouchables), Tribals, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims face daily pogroms Indian in America and Europe organise propaganda against Bangladesh. Would Indians dare to organise such events against other Islamic nations or even Pakistan? We are easy meat, or so they think. All Bangladesh nationals, wake up against such Indian design.

31. [
BANGLADESH - ISI] It seems the D-company of Dubai and Karachi fame is not entirely done. While Indian intelligence and the rest of the world concentrate on Pakistan and Dubai - which Dawood called his home - he has been deftly but surely moving onto newer pastures in Bangladesh.

There was a recent meeting in secret of Dawood with two Bangladeshis - one a powerful young Bangladeshi politician of the ruling alliance and other an intelligence officer . The meeting has raised alarms in the Indian and Western Intelligence circles.

The meeting was ostensibly to discuss ways to smuggle in arms into Bangladesh for the terrorists within the country. It is well known that Khalida Zia is very close to ISI of Pakistan.

32. [
INDIA - R&AW] A Director in RAW (Research & Analysis Wing), the country's premier external intelligence agency, has been asked not to return to work, all his files and computers have been seized. A computer systems analyst in the National Security Council Secretariat, the nation's top intelligence processing unit, is under arrest, his residence raided. And now a Navy commander who headed the secretariat's National Information Security Co-ordination Cell is being questioned in what is turning out to be an unprecedented security breach in the highest levels of the intelligence establishment. The breach, detected only a month ago, involves alleged leakage of sensitive information to foreign agents.

33. [
INDIA - R&AW] This is the first time that the intelligence bureau has been asked to look into espionage activities in RAW and carry out raids in its office after the Rabinder Singh episode. RAW's counter-surveillance wing had then cut a sorry figure after Singh managed to escape from the country.

34. [
INDIA - R&AW] The Research and Analysis Wing (RAW ) of India is different in nature than that of the intellegence of any other country .RAW is the creator Brahma' the Supreme Being' who creates the nation. It gave birth to Bangladesh. RAW is Yamaraj' the God of death. It has already killed half a dozen countries including Goa' Daman and Diu' Hyderabad' Pondicherry' Jammu' Kashmir and Sikkim. The last victim is Sikkim. RAW is Vishnu who takes care of politics' economy' religion' water policy and people's policy of other countries' which it' at the moment' is doing in Nepal. Therefore it is necessary to understand the objectives and organizational pattern of this agency.

35. [
INDIA - R&AW] It is important to understand the invisible chemistry unofficially interactive in the process of development of any bilateral relationship that has been frequently occurring since the WW-II. For national security reasons, political and military leaders sometimes had been forced to become double dealers to establish initial diplomatic ties with other states. Thirty-five years ago, in September 1968, when the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was founded with Rameshwar Nath Kao at its helm in India, then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had reportedly asked him to cultivate Israel?s Mossad. She believed, so the reports go, a relation between the two intelligence agencies was necessary to monitor developments that could threaten both India and Israel. The efficient spymaster that he was, Kao established a clandestine relationship with Mossad. In the 1950s, New Delhi had permitted Tel Aviv to establish a consulate in Mumbai. But full-fledged diplomatic relations with Israel were discouraged because India supported the Palestinian cause; having an Israeli embassy in New Delhi, it was believed, would rupture its relations with the Arab world.

36. [
INDIA - R&AW] Security and strategic affairs experts warn that India's counterintelligence costs will rise dramatically after Nathu La opens because of its proximity to a wide swath of eastern and northeastern India, where Beijing is alleged to have stoked insurgency for decades. "Chinese spies and agents on subversive missions will find it easier to slip in through Nathu La," said Maloy Krishna Dhar, a retired joint director of India's Federal Intelligence Bureau and author of Open Secrets: India's Intelligence Unveiled. "India is inviting trouble. The Chinese will stoke insurgency, monitor troop deployment and movement along the disputed border and gain access to vital installations like refineries and highly sensitive warfare training centres."

37. [
INDIA- NSC] Authorities probing the spy ring at the National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS) have taken former Naval Commander Mukesh Saini, who earlier headed a key cell in the prestigious organisation, into custody for questioning about his alleged links with a US diplomat. Though there was no immediate confirmation about whether Saini had been formally placed under arrest, informed sources said he was picked up from his residence on the intervening night of July 3 and 4 and subjected to intense grilling by Delhi police and Intelligence Bureau sleuths handling the case.

38. [
INDIA-CIA] There are lot of red faces in the Indian intelligence agencies with the Third Secretary in the US Embassy in India, Rosanne Minchew, reportedly gaining access to the country's higly sensitive secrets, including nuclear information. Minchew, who was running a ring with "insiders", has escaped to the US.

39. [
INDIA-CIA] Top Government sources told The Indian Express that since it has now been confirmed that US Embassy official Rosanna Minchew first established contact with NSCN's systems analyst S S Paul during an IUSCSF programme in March 2005 and had several ''unauthorised'' meetings with her, the feasibility of the bilateral programme was under review. So far, three plenary sessions have been held, the last in New Delhi in January. Five working groups have been announced and two more are under consideration.

40. [
PAKISTAN- ISI] In his biography, Ghadaar Kaun? Nawaz Sharif Ki Kahani, Unki Zubani , Sharif, who was toppled by the military in 1999, said he had received complaints from his Indian and Bangladeshi counterparts that the ISI was engaged in efforts to destabilise those countries. Sharif said when he attended an India-Pakistan-Bangladesh tripartite meeting in Dhaka during his second tenure, then Indian prime minister I K Gujral expressed 'good sentiments' to improve ties with Pakistan but complained about sabotage activities being carried out ISI in India.

41. [FORUM BUZZ:] Do you know Dr Ullah how people crack jokes about you? Two Mukto-Mona readers / contributors sent me long emails cataloging samples of your unsubstantiated assertions, lies and deceptions. I simply deleted those messages with a request to the senders not to send such messages against you or anybody else to me. I asked them to go public if they really have some substance (which I believe they have) to prove your unsubstantiated claims (including your “non-existent” Cornell University fellowship). I can cite some of your totally fabricated stories. One of them was that “repatriated” Bengali soldiers killed Sheikh Mujib, while the fact is that all the officers (including Col. Faruq and Major Dalim) and soldiers were Freedom Fighters. Another fantastic article by you, full of fantasies, on Central Asia made me laugh for days. Please give a break and concentrate on Agriculture, which is your field, NOT history or politics. By the way, according to one of your bitter critics, who wrote to me (and I am sure to many others), that he did not find any worth mentioning research work by you in any journal or book on botany, agriculture and other fields of your expertise and (should be) areas of interest.
