1965 War: Refocus on the Victory Day

Regarding aerial warfare between Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Indian Air Force (IAF), the latter emerged as victorious in the Indo-Pak war of I965. Pakistan Air Force gained a lot of credibility among Pakistan military and international war writers for a successful defence of Lahore and other important areas of Pakistan and heavy retaliation to India. During that war, PAF had destroyed 100 Indian aircraft on the ground and in the air, while damaged more than 10—not counting the undermined losses inflicted by PAF’s night bombing.
Notably, during the war, the whole nation showed solidarity with Pakistan’s Armed Forces and the air of the country was full of anthems and patriotic songs, especially in Noor Jehan’s voice which prompted every soldier to fight harder. There were a lot of national heroes like Brigadier Ahsan Rashid, Major Raja Aziz Bhatti, SQN LDR M. M. Alam, SQN LDR Sarfaraz Ahmed Rafiqui etc., most recognized, many unsung, we remember them always and particularly on September 20, marking the Victory Day.

‘Gyanvapi Mosque’, Turning into Another Babri Mosque Incident

However, on December 6, 1992, the RSS and its affiliates organized a rally involving 150,000 VHP and BJP Karsevaks at the site of the mosque. The ceremonies included speeches by BJP leaders such as L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti. During the first few hours of the rally, the crowd began raising militant slogans. A police cordon had been placed around the mosque in preparation for an attack. Nevertheless, around noon, a young man managed to slip past the cordon and climb the mosque itself, brandishing a saffron flag. This was seen as a signal by the mob, who then stormed the structure. The police cordon, vastly outnumbered, fled. The mob set upon the building with axes, hammers, and grappling hooks, and within a few hours, the entire mosque was levelled. Hindu fanatics also destroyed numerous other mosques within the town.

A 2009 report of the inquiry commission clearly identified BJP, RSS and VHP as the organizations responsible for the incident.

Did Israel’s Mossad, U. S. Gov’t Mastermind 9/11 Attacks In New York?

According to the Gelles piece, Francesco Cossiga, former President of Italy (1985-1992) and former Prime Minister, told Italy’s most respected newspaper, Corriere Della Sera, that the 9/11 attacks were run by the CIA and by Israel’s spy agency Mossad and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.  In November 2007, Cossiga declared:  “… All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe … now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized by the American CIA and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to falsely incriminate Arabic countries and to persuade the Western Powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Gelles said.
Paul Wolfowitz talking to General Wesley Clark 10 years before 9/11 telling him they were going to clean out the Middle East. And then 10 days after 9/11, a general in the Pentagon pointed out to Mr. Clark a memo that contained plans to take down seven Muslim nations in five years. … The ADL understands, that once the American people know that this country or the government and some members of it are, in fact, a party to the conspiracy to take down the Twin Towers in a false flag operation that was designed to create a situation that would so frighten, alarm, and anger the American people that they could direct that anger against the Muslim World and bring the war effort to take down seven Muslim nations in five years. Facts are now coming to light that show Muslims were not responsible for 9/11.”

Who Was Really Behind 9/11? By Eric Margolis September 14, 2019

A large number of Americans still don’t believe the official version of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington. I am one of them. A sizeable Yemeni community lives in Saudi. The bin Laden family originally hailed from Yemen. Saudi also has an important Shia Muslim minority, about 20% of the population, with smaller numbers of other Muslim sects. Most important, the reactionary, ultra-rigid Wahabi religious sect still dominates the nation and royal family. The Wahabis hate Shia, calling them apostates and heretics. A similar dim view is taken of the nine million foreign workers, principally Indians, Pakistanis and other South Asians, who do all of the Kingdom’s dirty work.

India: Gross Human Rights Abuses in Kashmir Continue By Sajjad Shaukat

On August 29, this year, BBC pointed out: “Unprecedented restrictions have put Kashmir into a state of lockdown…In one village the residents said…Two brothers were woken up and taken to an outside area where nearly a dozen other men from the village had been gathered…They kicked us…gave us electric shocks, beat us with cables…we screamed, they sealed our mouth with mud…We told them we are innocent…they did not listen to us. I told them don’t beat us, just shoot us. I was asking God to take me because the torture was unbearable.”
