    Snoopgate: ‘Scurrilous' allegations against Modi be deleted, SC says

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court said on Friday it will look into the plea for CBI probe into Gujarat's snooping controversy only after verifying that suspended IAS officer Pradeep Sharma complied with its order to delete "scurrilous" allegations against chief minister Narendra Modi.

    Sharma, who has sought probe into the snoopgate, faced stiff opposition from the Gujarat government, which also slapped several other cases on him including one for attempting to flee the country on fake passport.

    The apex court, which also refused Sharma's plea to allow him to travel to the United States to meet his wife and son, who are American citizens, said his application for CBI probe into snoopgate can only be considered after examining that he has complied with its May 12, 2011 order.

    Sharma, the 1984 batch IAS officer, who had sought handing over of the probe of criminal cases against him to the CBI and shifting the trial outside Gujarat, was directed by the apex court to file an amended petition by deleting the paragraphs having "scurrilous" allegations against Modi.

    Since the amended petition was not available during the hearing, a bench comprising justices Ranjana Prakash Desai and M B Lokur said "there was a need to compare the orginal petition and the amended one".

    "Let us see whether you have first complied with our order or not. We want to go through the amended petition," the bench said, adding there was a need to compare the petitions as Gujarat government and Modi's close aide and senior BJP leader Amit Shah alleged that Sharma has retained the scurrilous allegations in the application for CBI probe.

    "If that is so we will compare the paragraphs. We have to see that the order has to be followed. If the order has been complied with we will go into it, otherwise we will not entertain it," the bench said while posting the plea on snoopgate after two weeks.

    Re: Narendra Modi : Indian puzzle for America

    Ricky, did you count 59 Hindus burnt alive, the incident that precipitated the riots? No? That incident was the root cause of riots.

    But were those riots something new? Riots happened before that and after that. During past one year more than a 100 riots took place in UP alone, killing about 150. What about Raj riots? Are they not registering on you?

    Sikh Group Aims to File Suit Against PM During U.S. Visit

    United States

    Fresh on the heels of a failed attempt to sue Congress Party leader Sonia Gandhi, the New York-based Sikhs For Justice is now aiming to slap a lawsuit on Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during his four-day visit to the U.S., which began Sept. 26.

    Singh is here for a two-day “working visit” with President Barack Obama. He will then travel to New York to address the United Nations General Assembly Sept. 28 and will meet with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Sept. 29 (see separate stories).

    Gurpatwant Pannun, who is representing Sikhs For Justice in several lawsuits against Indian political leaders, alleged to India-West that Singh, in his role as India’s finance minister from 1991 to 1996, funded a counterinsurgency movement against Sikhs, giving cash to cops who killed insurgent Sikhs.

    About $200 million was disbursed in “cash rewards” via a bounty system for policemen who executed Sikhs, and 100,000 people were killed extra-judicially, alleged Pannun in the lawsuit. The suit cites corroborating reports of several international civil rights organizations, including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.

    In his current capacity as India’s prime minister, Singh has protected and shielded members of the Congress Party who allegedly actively led the October 1984 attacks against Sikhs, after former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed by her Sikh bodyguards, charged Pannun. The attacks – described as genocide by Pannun and others – reportedly killed 8,000 Sikhs. The suit cites Kamal Nath, currently the Minister of Urban Development, as leading one particularly violent attack in Delhi.

    The suit alleges that Indian security forces used torture techniques such as water boarding; laying detainees on ice for prolonged periods of time; electric shocks and beatings with sticks and leather belts.

    Earlier this month, SFJ attempted to file a similar suit against Congress Party leader Sonia Gandhi, who was being treated for an unknown medical illness at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York. Gandhi allegedly was served with the suit, but security staff at Sloan Kettering told India-West that Gandhi had not received the suit (I-W, Sept. 13).

    The suit is filed on behalf of Inderjit Singh, a resident of Punjab who, along with his father Tehal Singh, was allegedly detained and tortured in 1996 by police for their roles in helping Sikh militants. Singh’s father is a member of the Shiromani Akali Dal, which was actively advocating for a separate nation of Khalistan to be carved out of the Punjab region of India.

    The lawsuit alleges Singh and his father were offered money from the Ministry of Finance to hire informants and private killers known as “Black Cats” to extra-judicially kill young Sikh insurgents.

    Once released, Inderjit Singh allegedly fled the country, but when he returned in 2005, he was again taken into custody and tortured.

    Attorney Ravi Batra, who is representing the Congress Party in U.S. matters, told India-West that the suit was another “headline grabbing gimmick” by Sikhs For Justice, and without merit since the plaintiff is an Indian resident.

    “This is silliness,” said Batra. “If you want to sue God, go to court with $350 and a complaint, and you’ll get a summons to sue God,” he said, adding that a valid address was required.

    "SFJ's ‘red carpet’ welcome, a lawsuit against Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, the leader of a free, independent and sovereign nation, is headline grabbing while insulting law, decency and common sense. It also injures the comity between nations,” said Batra in a press statement.

    “America is better than this,” said the Indian American attorney, noting that the U.S. judicial system has tools “to handle an out-of-control litigant.”

    “President Barack Obama's and America's warm welcome to Dr. Singh trumps SFJ's incendiary press releases," added Batra.

    Re: Narendra Modi : Indian puzzle for America

    Sikhs organizations like to file law suit, some filed recently involve Jay Leno, night time talk show host, banning of assult weapons in California was a violation of their religious rights, They sue any one visiting the US from the Government of India. Against the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

    Jay Leno thought he was poking gentle fun at the lifestyles of rich and famous Republican presidential candidates — Mitt Romney in particular. But last Thursday when Leno’s slide show came to a location cited as Mitt Romney’s summer home — in reality an image of the Sikh holy shrine Golden Temple in Amritsar, India — it sparked a diplomatic incident. And now, a lawsuit charging Leno and NBC with libel. - See more at: Sikh Indian Organization Files Suit Against Jay Leno For Insensitive Joke About Mitt Romney | The Daily Sheeple

    They should sue Leno for being the unfunniest late night talk-show host ever. That's why I watch Conan O'Brien.

    Time magazine sees Narendra Modi as 'America's other India problem'

    WASHINGTON: After the "nasty spat" between India and US over an Indian diplomat, the emergence of Narendra Modi, BJP's prime ministerial candidate, may cause even more tension between them, according to Time magazine.

    Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade, whom US authorities charged with visa fraud involving her maid, has returned to India after being granted diplomatic immunity, the influential magazine noted in its upcoming Jan 27 issue.

    "But don't expect the relationship to rebound quickly," Michael Crowley wrote suggesting "In fact, the atmosphere could soon become even more tense - over a far more prominent Indian also embroiled in a visa controversy."

    Suggesting that BJP "holds the edge" in the upcoming general election by May, he said that "If the BJP prevails, Modi will be India's next Prime Minister.

    "Yet he is persona non grata in the US," he noted "because of his alleged role in a horrific episode of sectarian violence in February 2002."

    "Modi's critics say he condoned or even encouraged the violence - accusations he stoutly denies and for which no Indian court has found him responsible," Time noted.

    In 2005, the State Department revoked Modi's visa under an American law that bars a foreign official who "was responsible for or directly carried out ... particularly severe violations of religious freedom," Crowley recalled

    "When Modi had no national profile, the restriction was inconsequential. But can Washington blacklist the leader of India?" he asked.

    US policymakers are divided, he noted. "A resolution introduced in November in the US Congress calls on the State Department to continue denying Modi entry. It has attracted 43 congressional co-sponsors, including two Muslims."

    "Realists, and US business leaders wishing to capitalise on Modi's openness to foreign investment, say his character should only be a footnote to Washington's wider relations with New Delhi," Crowley wrote.

    "Should Modi win, the Obama administration will be pressured by many at home and abroad to condemn his past and prevent him from visiting the US. But (President Barack) Obama has tended to subordinate principle to the national interest," he suggested.

    Noting that "Over the years, the US has done business with plenty of unsavoury leaders, in countries far less friendly than India," Time said, "By revoking Modi's visa, the US government has made clear its view of him and the Gujarat rampage."

    "But Washington's ties with New Delhi are too important to be confined through that prism if Modi becomes PM," it said, suggesting "Both countries need to step forward and not allow Modi's past to push them back."

    Re: Narendra Modi : Indian puzzle for America

    that organization is full of fools... if they want justice in true sense rather then working to end India-US relation they should have filed the case in Indian courts.... but they just proved they are not after justice.
