  • eknath khadse on muslims

    Eknath Khadse's claim that 'namaz is yoga; Maharashtra's Minorities Affairs Minister Eknath Khadse courted controversy after comparing yoga with namaz, evoking a sharp response from the opposition here today. While the Congress called Khadse's statement a "despicable" one which is intended to hurt sentiments of the minority community, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) said that the minister got his analogy completely wrong. "Namaz is nothing but Yoga. All actions that one does in Namaz is done in Yoga as well. So only Yoga has been renamed a Namaz, but we have not forced anybody to do Yoga. If somebody wants to do it, they can do it. It is an individual choice," Khadse told reporters here. (PTI)

    Indian Railways to remove chains from trains
    Pulling a chain to stop a train will soon be thing of the past as the Railways has decided to do away with it as the facility was prone to regular misuse and led to loss of revenues to the public transporter. Passengers would instead get in direct touch with the loco pilots in case of emergency. They would be provided the contact number of the drivers. The measure has already been initiated by the Railways by removing the chains in existing coaches, officials said, adding communications have been sent to the coach manufacturing units as well.

    now is the time for pre-emptive action; as a concerned citizen of my country, I hereby authorise the indian armed forces to strike before being struck--ala the the Israeli armed forces in the 1967 arab israeli war. In six days the Israelis decimated UAR forces five times its size. Go for it, my fauji brothers.
