Will use all might if sovereignty threatened: President

Hasimara (West Bengal), Nov 28 : President Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said India is committed to peace but will use “all its might” if its sovereignty is threatened. Speaking at Haismara air base in the eastern sector, the President, who is the supreme commander of the forces, also lauded the India Air Force’s role in humanitarian operations. President Mukherjee earlier presented President’s Standard to two IAF squadrons based here. The squadrons which have been honoured are the 18 Squadron and the 22 Squadron. “Though we remain firmly committed to peace, we will use all our might to protect the sovereignty of our nation. I am confident that our valiant men and women in uniform will rise to the occasion,” the president said. The air base, which is around 15 km away from India-Bhutan border, is considered critical given its proximity to India’s border with China, Bangladesh and Bhutan. Lauding the IAF’s role in recent humanitarian operations, Mukherjee said: “The IAF, besides safeguarding the sovereign sites of our nation, has also been at the forefront of all humanitarian aid and disaster relief operations.” The 18 Squadron initially flew the Gnat fighters, getting the nickname ‘Flying Bullets’. It was was formed in Ambala in 1965. The 18 Squadron was also the first fighter squadron to operate from Srinagar after Independence, making maiden sorties in 1968. It came to be known as ‘Defenders of Kashmir Valley’ during the 1971 India-Pakistan war. In the 1971 war, the 18 Squadron flew in escort duties with Mystere and Vampire across the Pir Panjal mountain ranges. In 1989, the squadron converted to MiG 27 fighters. The 22 Squadron was formed in 1966 in Bareilly, and is known as ‘The Swifts’. In the 1971 Bangladesh liberation war, the squadron drew first blood by shooting down three Pakistani F-86 Sabre jets. It was flying the Gnat Mk-1 aircraft at that time and got the MiG 27 fighters in 1990. The 22 Squadron was involved in Operation Vijay and Operation Parakram as well. The award of President’s standard is one of the highest honours bestowed upon an air force unit or a Squadron in recognition of exceptional service rendered by it to the nation, both during war and in peace. Hasimara is an important air base of the Eastern Air Command in northern West Bengal. It was set up after the India-China war of 1962. It has two MiG 27 squadrons and Akash missile systems.

Nitish government won’t last over two years: Paswan

Patna, Nov 28 : The Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance government in Bihar will not last more than two years, and there will be mid-term polls, union minister Ram Vilas Paswan said on Saturday. “The Grand Alliance government led by Nitish Kumar will not last more than one-and-half or two years, there will be mid-term polls, it is certain,” Paswan, who heads the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), said at a meeting to review the party’s rout in the assembly polls. Paswan said the Grand Alliance — which has the Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Congress — played the “caste card” to win the polls. But this will not work in the long run. “The RJD of Lalu Prasad emerged as the largest single party and the JD-U of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is the second largest party. Here lies the problem, as both will fight for supremacy,” said Paswan, the union minister for consumer affairs, food and public distribution. Paswan’s LJP was part of the BJP-led NDA along with the Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) of union minister Upendra Kushwaha and the Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) of former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi. The NDA was routed in the polls as it won only 58 seats — the BJP 53, the LJP 2, the RLSP 2 and the HAM 1. The LJP had contested 40 seats. Paswan’s younger brother and state LJP president Pasupati Kumar Paras, Paswan’s two sons-in-law, his nephew and another close relative were all defeated.

    Japan to bolster counter-terrorism measures

    Tokyo, Nov 28 : The Japanese government will launch a new task force on December 8 that will take the lead in the country’s revamped counter-terrorism initiatives, the media reported on Saturday. In the wake of the deadly terror attacks in Paris, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he will hold talks with French President Francois Hollande on the sidelines of the UN climate summit in Paris, on plans to work with the international community on counter-terrorism initiatives, Xinhua news agency reported. The new task force will consist of around 40 experts from the foreign and defence ministries, as well as the National Police Agency and other relevant authorities, and will be charged with gathering information pertaining to regions spanning the Middle East, North Africa, Southeast Asia and South Asia, sources with knowledge of the matter said Saturday. The task force will receive orders directly from the prime minister. Following the killing of two Japanese hostages by the Islamic State militant group earlier this year, the government decided the new task force was necessary to collect information in a consolidated manner, with the new entity also designed to be an intelligence hub for other countries in the exchange of information.

    North Korea fails in sub launch of ballistic missile

    Seoul, Nov 28 : North Korea failed in its test-launch of a ballistic missile from submarine after announcing the successful launch of such a missile in May, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported on Saturday. The test-firing of a KN-11 missile from a submarine was conducted in the East Sea roughly between 2.20 p.m. and 2.40 p.m. (local time), Xinhua quoted an official as saying. The submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), however, failed to soar from the waters, the official was quoted as saying, noting that debris from the missile found on the ocean surface proved the apparent failure. If the report is true, it would mark the first test-firing of the SLBM by North Korea since May when Pyongyang made an official announcement of its successful test-launch of a ballistic missile, overseen by top leader Kim Jong Un. At the time, South Korea expressed deep worries about the test-firing, with President Park Geun-hye describing it as a “serious challenge” to national security and regional stability. North Korea reportedly imposed a no-navigation zone in eastern waters off the coastal city of Wonsan from November 11 to December 7. The report came after Seoul and Pyongyang agreed on Friday to hold a vice ministerial-level meeting on December 11 at the factory park in North Korea’s border city of Kaesong. The inter-governmental talks are widely expected to improve ties between Seoul and Pyongyang after a surge in tensions in August, caused by an exchange of artillery fire across the border and landmine explosions in border areas that maimed two South Korean soldiers.

    Shihab Kottukadu Humanitarian stalwart

    Shihab Kottukadu Humanitarian stalwart - Nov 26 2015

    Shihab Kottukad receiving prestigious “Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award” By Mohammed Saifuddin, When you come across any news about the problems of Indians in Saudi Arabia or you read about labor disputes, repatriation of destitute Indians, arranging shelter for sick and disabled, handling death cases, deportation of dead bodies to India, etc. you will find one name very prominently and that is Shihab Kottukadu. An award winning activist, for whom; social service has become such an important part of life that he spends more time in helping others than his regular job. Irrespective of time, either the in late nights or sunny afternoons, Shihab is always ready to help the destitute Indians in Saudi Arabia. Due to his impressive dedication and commitment to social service, the Indian government bestowed him the most coveted Pravasi Bharatiya Samman in 2014 which is regarded as the highest civilian award for any NRI. Regardless, he was honored and felicitated by many organization in India, Saudi Arabia and other gulf countries. Shihab who is famous for his simplicity and down to earth personality, helped to resolve thousands of cases and his most commendable efforts was negotiating the victims of death cases to accept alimony instead of death penalty so that the convicts gets an opportunity to spend remaining life with family. CEO Syed Zia ur Rahman and Joint Editor Mohammed Saifuddin had an exclusive interview with Shihab Kottukadu and discussed various issues and problems being faced by the Indians in Saudi Arabia. Shihab helped many Indian death convicts to get released from jail and live remaining life happily. He said social workers are trying their best to save the death convicts by convincing the families of the dead. But in most of the cases they refuse to pardon the culprits. Upon continuous persuasion, they agree to accept the diyah (blood money) in lieu of the death penalty. Even after that, paying the huge amount as blood money is not an easy task. Most of the convicts are poor labors or drivers and their families are not able to pay huge money to seek their release. The Indian business community plays very crucial role at this juncture and several businessmen come forward to pay the blood money on behalf of the convicts. Shihab Kottukad with Syed Zia ur Rahman, CEO, In one of the famous case, Shihab intervened to save the life of three Indians who has been waiting their execution for murdering another Indian. The journey from conviction to release and returning home was not easy for the three convicts. As the victim’s father, Abdul Qadeer, initially refused to accept any settlement and later on demanded SR 2 million in blood money. Shihab Kottukadu continuously strived to convince him for pardoning the victims and eventually succeeded to get him agreed to settle the case for 25% of his initial demand. It was the 27th of Ramadan when the victim’s father agreed for this. An Indian businessman saved convicts by paying half a million riyals in blood money on their behalf. In another case, an Indian driver employed by Saudi family in Khamis Mushayt collided with a car driven by a Saudi which resulted in latter’s death on the spot. He was ordered to pay SR 225,000 in blood money. Upon intervention of social workers the Saudi family agreed to reduce the amount of compensation by SR 75,000 but the court rejected the settlement by ruling that the wife of the deceased had no right to pardon or reach any settlement on behalf of her dead husband. It said only children have legitimate right to pardon or punish or reach any settlement with the party that caused death. It also ruled that if children are minor then the killer has to wait until children attain maturity. After the court’s rejection of settlement deal, the Indian family had sought help from Inidian businessman in Jeddah Mohammed Alungal through the Kerala Chief Minister’s office. Upon request from the CM, Alungal came forward to pay the full amount as per court order to the family of the Saudi to secure the release of the Indian driver. Following the full payment of the money by Mohammed Alungal to the family of the dead Saudi national, the driver got the breather and his death penalty was cancelled. These are just two examples where Indian businessmen generously contributed to save the lives of Indians. Shihab Kottukad appreciated the business community and specially mentioned Mr. Mohammed Alungal (Jeddah), Mr. Rabiullah and Mr. Ashraf (Shifa Aljazira), Mr. Kamaal (Dammam). These generous businessmen always extend their hands to help the needy. Appreciating the Saudi authorities for releasing several inmates on the auspicious occasions like Eid, national day etc,. Shihab advised the Indian authorities to study this system and implement in India. He said those convicts who spent long time in Indian jails should also be released similarly on the occasions like Republic Day, Independence day, Gandhi Jayanti etc. The Indian government should study the procedures used by Saudi authorities for releasing convicts from jails on national occasions. When asked about the concern of state governments for their expat population in Gulf countries, Shihab said that Kerala government has set a good example by creating a special NRI department which is called NORKA. It also came up with several welfare schemes and rehabilitation programs for Keralites working in Gulf countries. He said the governments of other states like Telangana, Andhra, Tamilnadu, Bihar, UP etc. should follow the NORKA model of Kerala government and their workers in Gulf countries. Shihab Kottukad who came to Saudi Arabia in 1991, handled the first death case in 1993 when the son of his roommate died in a road accident in Madina. His room-mate ran from pillar to post for burial of his son. But due to lack of knowledge he faced several problems and difficulties. Shihab helped him and travelled to Madina to complete the formalities and returned to Riyadh for processing paper work at Indian Embassy. Since his college days Shihab had inclination towards social service. The death of his room-mate’s son changed his mind set. He felt that a lot of people face such problems an there are many issues, which even educated people are not well aware of. So, he thought to serve the community by helping others. He believes in serving to humanity because all the prophets put a lot of thrust on social service. Moreover, service to humanity is always regarded as service to God. Shihab said that lack of proper knowledge is the main reason for people getting in trouble. People do not consider to follow the rules. There are several cases where people got in trouble not only due to ignorance but also due to carelessness towards the law and regulations. We all know the importance of our passport but there are several people who don’t even care to renew it on time. Some parents are don’t even bother to obtain required certifications of their new born children. The other day, a friend called me and inquired in a worried tone if I know someone in Riyadh who can make a new Indian passport at the earliest possible time. I asked him the reason and for whom. He replied that his six year old cousin nephew died of road accident last night and his body was lying in hospital morgue. The deceased did not had any documents; neither birth certificate nor the passport. At this juncture, when they need to perform burial of the son, the family assumed that obtaining a new passport is the only way to ensure the quick burial. They were thinking to get a new passport quickly, through any middlemen. Luckily the family came in contact with Shihab. He clarified to the parents that the passport is not required and advised the parents to obtain medical report from the hospital and accident report from concerned police station. He asked the parents to submit an application at the Indian Embassy explaining all the details with these documents. The parents followed the advice and the Indian embassy officials issued the required letter immediately. As a result, the burial was completed within 48 hours. Shihab not only guided the suffering parents on phone but also offered to visit the parents to help in preparing documentation. He came to the embassy next day to help them complete the procedures. Due to his proper guidance and help all the procedures were completed quickly. Had the parents did not get the proper advice from the genuine source or had they fallen prey in hands of middlemen to apply for passport, they would have faced miserable time by running here and there. Also it would have delayed the burial. In another case, an Indian family had been living in the Kingdom illegally for 14 years. Due to dispute with his employer, Abdul Aziz left his job as Assistant Pharmacist and started working as driver. He neither registered four children born here nor obtained their passports. Due to lack of documentation, all their efforts to obtain emergency certificate from Indian embassy became futile during amnesty period. Abdulaziz has been arrested in routine check and held at deportation center for four months. His family faced the most miserable time of their life as their landlord evicted them for not paying the rent. They were compelled to stay at SAPTCO bus station in Azizia until Indian Embassy intervened for their rescue. The Indian embassy asked Shihab Kottukad to help the family get exit visas. Shihab immediately moved the family to Shifa Al-Jazeera polyclinic and later moved them to rented house until they returned home. Finally, all the family members including four undocumented children got the exit papers and returned home in July 2014. Both the incidents cited above highlights the importance of legal documentation and also shows the hardships being faced by families due to absence of passport or other documents. We all know the importance of the passport as a valid travel document. For those who are living in a foreign country, the importance of passport and other legal documents increase manifold. Children born to Indian families in foreign countries are eligible for automatic acquisition of Indian citizenship. If the parents fail to register their new wards at Indian mission or fail to obtain the passport within one year of the birth, the newborn ceases the right to obtain automatic acquisition of Indian citizenship. Shihab Kottukad highlighted an important legal aspect for new born Indians in foreign countries. He disclosed that the parents of new born babies must register their children at the nearest Indian mission within one year of their birth. If they fail to do so, they have to face several problems in future. Shihab said that delay beyond a year may create problems. If someone applies for passport of a child after one year, than the application has to pass through lengthy process which is similar to that of a foreigner applying for Indian citizenship. In such cases, the rules stipulates that the Indian mission should forward the application of the new passport to the Home Ministry for approval. Passport will be issued only after the clearance from Home Ministry in New Delhi. –
