migrate from there and this ‘exodus’ is like that of Kashmir where Kashmiri pandits had been forced to leave their homes and move out of the valley… But the report sent by the DIG of police of Saharanpur range has levelled very serious charges against the BJP In his report RK Raghav has said that in view of the forthcoming assembly elections in UP the BJP has aroused a false sense of insecurity among the Hindus in order to get their votes in the election” Shakeel Shamsi editor of Inquilab in his signed column on the same day writes: “It is ironic that the people who provoked rioters to force thousands of Muslims of Muzaffarnagar to run away and take shelter in Kairana are now levelling allegations against Muslims of creating an atmosphere in Kairana that has compelled a few hundred Hindus to migrate to other places… But if the BJP had looked at the people going out from a human eye it would have also seen thousands of Muslims too left Kairana and settled in Delhi and elsewhere in UP It would have also seen thousands of Hindus who are still living in Kairana peacefully” Orlando Tragedy Daily Siasat in its editorial on June 14 writes: “The authorities have not drawn any conclusion about the attacker at Orlando’s gay night club in the US nor have the real objective of the attack been revealed but commentators have tried to sensationalise the incident and associate it with a particular group The incident of firing is being described as the worst tragedy after the 9/11 attack in the US But the incident is also like the school firing recently where dozens of children were killed Such an incident just before the US presidential election can be a coincidence But it can also be a part of an organised conspiracy Any conspiracy can be hatched to give strength to the anti-Muslim policy of the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump” The daily Munsif on the same day writes: “The gun lobby in the US is a great problem for its president and it is selling arms to the US citizens as if it were vegetables And if the name of the attacker was a ‘Robert’ and not Mateen this incident too would have been considered a case of firing by a deranged person It definitely would not be considered a ‘terrorist act’ But as the present attacker seems to be a Muslim the incident has been linked with Islamist terrorism even though it was a personal act

Lt Col Prasad Purohit and 10other accused in the 2008 Malegaon bomb blasts case will stand trial on terror charges— has said that a conclusion cannot be drawn that Purohit had attended the alleged conspiracy meetings related to the blast in the discharge of his duty as a military intelligence officer According to The Indian Express Purohit had relied on documents from the Court of Inquiry conducted by the army to "exonerate" himself from the case He had claimed that the meetings were aimed at generating counter-intelligence as part of his job File image of Colonel Purohit Courtesy: News18 The special NIA court however in its detailed order said that the incriminating circumstances against Purohit are "not only about his presence in the meetings but also the manner in which he participated and the actual discussion and utterances made by him" according to an India Today report The court noted that in all the meetings held "prima facie it appears that Purohit was acting as a leader and chairperson of the meeting and also his superiors in the army did not have any knowledge of this" MCOCA charges dropped The courthad on Wednesday dropped the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) charges against the accused Special Judge SD Tekale in the 130-page order said that there was insufficient material to charge the accused under MCOCA The court said that while the accused would not be charged under MCOCA they would still face trial under sections 16 (committing/organising a terror act) and 18 (criminal conspiracy) of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and sections 120 (b) (criminal conspiracy) 302 (murder) 307 (attempt to murder) 326 (causing grievous hurt to others) of Indian Penal Code and under the Explosive Substances Act Of the 13 accused named by the prosecution two are still absconding The court discharged three accused — Shyam Sahu Shivnarayan Kalsangra and Pravin Takkalki – from all the charges levelled against them and said it was accepting the NIA’s decision to "absolve them" from the case due to insufficient evidence against them The court said two accused Rakesh Dhawde and Jagdish Mhatre shall be tried only under the Arms Act before courts in Pune and Thane "At this prima facie stage asafe conclusion can be drawn from the statement of witness number 184 that in the Bhopal meeting (where the alleged conspiracy was hatched) Purohit Pragya Ramesh Upadhyay Sameer Kulkarni and Sudhakar Chaturvedi were present" "There was discussion about growing Jihadi activities in Aurangabad and Malegaon and Purohit expressed his opinion to do something for its prevention by expanding Abhinav Bharat Sanghatna in the said area" the court said ‘Conspiracy to establish Hindu Rashtra’ The court said it was accepting the NIA counsel’s submission that the accused persons had made conspiracy to establish a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ and the conspiracy to cause bomb blast was one step towards the objective of the accused The court used strong words in holding that the prime accused must remain to be charged under sections 16 and 18 of the UAPA for conspiring for and committing a terrorist activity "The blast took place near a mosque during the holy month of Ramzan If the place and the timing of the blast is considered at this prima facie stage in the background of available evidence in the form of transcripts (from the conspiracy meetings) witness statements etc it has to be said that the bomb blast was caused with the intention of threatening the unity of the public by targeting a particular community" it said "The intention to take revenge against an individual is one thing but the intention to take revenge against people belonging to a particular religion is another The latter shows the intention to strike terror among people or among a certain section of people" it said The court observed that while his predecessor had discharged all the accused from MCOCA charges in the past the high court while hearing an appeal by Maharashtra government had ordered for MCOCA charges to be reapplied "The high court ruling was upheld by the Supreme Court However the apex court in its order observed that except accused number seven (Dhawde) there is no material to show that the remaining accused persons had nexus with co-accused or with the crime pertaining to the Jalna and Parbhani cases" the court said "The apex court had said it would not like to get into the issue of applicability of MCOCA at that stage since NIA investigation was still on However now NIA has completed its probe and has come to the conclusion that the charges of MCOCA cannot be applied against the accused in this case" it said The court noted that Dhawde was shown as an accused in the Jalna and Parbhani blast cases only after his arrest in the Malegaon blast case During 2003-04 when the Jalna and Parbhani blasts took place there is no record or material to show that Bharat was in existence or that Dhawde was even in touch with the other accused in the Malegaon blast case it said "In such circumstances it cannot be said that the accused persons including Dhawde committed the act in Parbhani and Jalna case as a member or on behalf of a crime syndicate that is Bharat" the court said "In view of all this I hold that all accused persons are entitled to be discharged from the offences under MCOCA as there is no sufficient ground to proceed against them under the said Act" the court said The court dismissed NIA’s and Sadhvi’s claims that the latter had sold her motorbike that was later used to plant the explosive device for the blast The court said Thakur was still shown as the registered owner of the bike and thus despite her claims that she had sold it to someone else long before the incident it was for the Sadhvi to prove that she had no knowledge of where the bike was With inputs from PTI New Delhi: The BJP on Thursday hailed the court verdict in the Mumbai serial blasts case saying it shows India’s unwavering

second in the world “Had a few chances to win the fourth set with a couple of set points Who knows what could have happened in the fifth I would have loved to have played one Yeah that’s it Simple as

hips have all needed medical attention at various times but that has not prevented the patched-up German playing some of his best tennis late in his career What he is capable of producing was in

competitive “As a tournament director it was a great experience… presenting Roger a close friend of mine with the trophy was great “And then obviously playing him again and getting a victory over him is also unbelievable” But no matter what his heart says Haas knows that the time has come when he has to listen to his head and body “It’s just tough to realise the fact that your body is not cooperating anymore Every morning you wake up you have to hope that everything is stable” said Haas a semi-finalist here in 2009 “Yesterday unfortunately the lower back tightened up a little bit so it
