Top News TEN months after a Nagpada teenager and his driver died after their car fell into the elevator shaft of a multi-storey building in a South Mumbai neighbourhood the Mumbai Police have been asked by a metropolitan magistrate’s court to re-investigate the deaths this time turning the spotlight on whether there might have been negligence in maintaining the elevator Over the last weekend in a similar case a 12-year-old girl died when she peeped into an elevator shaft of a Bandra building and the lift car that was on its way down hit her head Hafeez Patel (14) and his driver Javed Ahmed (26) died on April 20 2016 and a police probe found that the teenager was behind the wheel The minor was booked under Sections 304(a) (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and 279 (rash driving) of the IPC and the driver was booked under Section 5 (responsibility of owners of motor vehicles for contravention) Subsequently investigators had sought permission to file an “abated summary” report as both the accused were dead In February this year a metropolitan magistrate in Mazgaon court ordered further investigation whose report was to have been submitted by March 17 Advocate Nazima Siddiqui who represents the Patels had claimed that the Nagpada police never submitted their investigation report Inspector Pandurang Sanas one of the lead investigators however dismissed the development “We have submitted a closure report but it is pending with the court The father of the deceased pleaded to the court saying his son is not an accused There is nothing to investigate further and we have not been asked to re-investigate The lift maintenance company has not been made an accused” he said Hafeez’s father Aiyub had submitted to the magistrate’s court that the lift maintenance company had ignored two calls regarding the malfunctioning elevator Aiyub told the court that a maintenance team inspected the place of incident but ignored the damaged part of the lift “If the company had taken proper care the accident could have been avoided” Aiyub told The Indian Express According to the court order the IO had mainly relied on the report of the electric inspector According to the police based on CCTV footage the incident took place at 1222 pm However the duo were found dead in the mangled car nearly five hours later The magistrate’s order said there appears to be a lacuna in the mechanism of the lift “IO failed to make investigations regarding the averments made by the applicant Aiyub Patel … Accused would be liable even though there has been a degree of negligence on the part of the other side Negligence of the part of the maintenance lift cannot be overlooked on the ground that that child in conflict with law Hafeez Patel acted in rash and negligent manner Whether (there is) negligence or not would be further subject for investigation Thus it is necessary to make further investigation with respect to the contention raised by the applicant Aiyub Patel” read the court’s order For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Praveen Swami | Updated: December 19 2014 1:39 pm The Taliban’s justification of the carnage may be self-serving but it also tells us that their acts had context (Source: Archives) Related News For the most part the language we have used to describe the massacre of 132 school children in Peshawar has consisted of cliché: the perpetrators were evil cowardly animals This language of righteous rage tells us next to nothing about the perpetrators and why they acted as they did The Taliban’s justification of the carnage may be self-serving but it also tells us that their acts had context It is important to understand this context because the ideals that drove the perpetrators are inexorably shaping Pakistan’s destiny no matter what the outcome of the war between the state and the Taliban might be The story dates back to the late-1970s to when military despot Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq flush with Saudi cash and United States arms launched his great jihad against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan The jihad saw the recruitment of thousands of young men from Pakistan’s northwest The recruits were mainly young men with some elementary secular or seminary education and ambitions far greater than the roles traditional tribal society had assigned them Following 9/11 the Islamic utopia these men had sought to build in Afghanistan imploded and they returned home In 2004 the US pushed military ruler General Pervez Musharraf into action against Arab Chechen and Uzbek jihadists operating from Pakistan’s South Waziristan Agency with the help of local warlords who had fled Afghanistan after 9/11 The offensive proved disastrous Facing rebellion from within his force Musharraf sold the US the idea that he could co-opt the jihadist leadership using his intelligence services In April 2004 key warlord Nek Muhammad Wazir agreed to stop support to foreign jihadists In a video recorded in the spring of 2004 Nek Muhammad garlanded Lieutenant General Safdar Husain head of Pakistan’s XI corps “The most important thing” he said “is that we are Pakistani soldiers too The tribal people are Pakistan’s atomic bomb When India attacks Pakistan you will see the tribals defending 14000 kilometres of the border” Days later though the Shakai agreement unravelled Nek Muhammad refused to hand over foreign jihadists He began assassinating traditional tribal leaders who competed with him for power The warlord’s story goes to the heart of who the Pakistani Taliban’s leadership are The son of a farmer from the village of Kalosha in South Waziristan Nek Muhammad was schooled at an influential Islamist-controlled seminary the Jamia Dar-ul-Uloom before going to study at a college run by the secular-nationalist Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party He soon dropped out and set up a shop in the main bazaar of Wana South Waziristan’s main town Less than 18 years old at the time Nek Muhammad volunteered for service with the mujahideen in Afghanistan He was operating alongside the Taliban by 1995-1996 He became close friends with Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan chief Tahir Yaldashev and Uighur jihadist Hasan Mohsin Following the events of 9/11 Nek Muhammad returned to Waziristan and grabbed power in the Shakai valley using his al-Qaeda contacts Pakistan’s army still hoping to plant jihadists back in power in Kabul wasn’t displeased Every peace deal since Shakai has ended in the same way for pretty much the same reasons In February 2005 the Pakistan army signed a peace deal with Baitullah Mehsud then chief of the Pakistan Taliban operating in South Waziristan Within months clashes broke out again In the Mohmand Agency Taliban commander Abdul Wali who prefers the pseudonym Omar Khalid Khurasani and was among the Lal Masjid jihadists was handed total power “Polio vaccination was stopped sharia courts were established women were directed to wear the veil in public and criminals were arrested and judged in sharia courts” the journalist Amir Mir reported Perhaps the most unsuccessful peace effort involved Maulana Fazlullah now head of the Pakistan Taliban whose jihadists barred Swat’s girls from schools and unveiled women from the streets In February 2009 Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s battered provincial government agreed to implement the sharia-based Nizam-e-Adl laws conceding Fazlullah’s demands Floggings beheadings and suicide-bombings replaced the law “None of the agreements with Taliban factions involved in attacks in Pakistan” journalist Daud Khattak has recorded “lasted for more than a few months and the breaking of each agreement resulted in severe bouts of violence including attacks on government installations security forces and civilians” The Pakistan army’s Zarb-e-Azb offensive in North Waziristan the war that built up to the Peshawar carnage is the latest in a series of similar campaigns: Rah-e-Rast Rah-e-Nijat Sher-Dil Khyber 1 Khyber 2 even the farcically-named Daraghlam (I’m Coming) Bia Daraghlam (Here I Come Again) and Khwakh Ba De Sham (I’m Going To Fix You) Zarb-e-Azb has military experts agree gone further in targeting jihadist combat units than its predecessors Yet these offensives have done nothing to erode the actual reach and influence of jihadism across the country The army has in particular remained allied to pro-government jihadists east of the Indus in the plains of Punjab and in Sindh The state may fight jihadist fighters but not their project For decades scholar Pervez Hoodbhoy has written Pakistanis have been taught that their country’s “raison d’être was the creation of an Islamic state where the sharia must reign supreme” It’s a task successive governments both military and civil have participated in since 1953: it was after all so-called democrat Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who proscribed the Ahmadi minority The jihadists see themselves as revolutionaries fighting to build the utopia promised in 1947 Large numbers of Pakistanis especially an affluent but disenfranchised petty bourgeoisie fed up with both an elite-run democracy and military rule don’t disagree with their ideals The state has neither the will nor the desire to reinvent the idea of Pakistan: no government after all has even shown a desire to overturn Pakistan’s toxic blasphemy laws Even as Taliban violence has escalated polling data shows support for violent Islamist groups has held steady expanding in some regions The data also shows that India notwithstanding visiting journalists’ accounts to the contrary is seen as the principal enemy There are some like Hafiz Muhammad Saeed who have cast the killing as an Indian plot thus seeking to protect the jihadist ideal from the acts of its practitioners There are others who have even refused to condemn the Peshawar slaughter Umberto Eco the great Italian scholar and author described a visit to an amusement-park house-of-horrors thus: “there are mirrors so on the right you see Dracula raising the lid of a tomb and on the left your own face reflected next to Dracula’s while at the same time there is the glimmering image of the Ripper or of Jesus duplicated by an astute play of corners curves and perspective until it is hard to realise which is which” Five decades ago and more Pakistan threw away the moral compass that could have guided it out

Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Tuesday asked the chief minsiter to welcome him as a state guest as it will not only send a positive message to over 50 lakh NRIs settled across the globe but also improve bilateral ties between India (Punjab) and Canada AAP MLA and chief whip Sukhpal Singh Khaira said that it’s a matter of record that Captain Amarinder Singh was one of the seven signatories to the “Amritsar Declaration” dated 1st May 1994 wherein seven Akali outfits including that of Simranjit Singh Mann had merged to form Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) The aim and objective of “Amritsar Declaration” read out before the Akal Takhat Sahib at Amritsar was to demand an independent and sovereign Sikh state in other words “Khalistan” Therefore the logic rolled out by Captain Amarinder Singh to oppose the visit of Harjit Singh Sajjan also applies to him for being a part of the “Amritsar Declaration” Another reason for Capt Amarinder Singh to oppose Sajjan is also a part of the larger political conspiracy hatched by the Congress leadership under a “tit for tat” policy said Khaira In order to settle scores with the Canadian government for passing the Sikh genocide resolution the Congress high command has directed Captain Amarinder Singh to oppose Harjit Singh Sajjan on flimsy grounds by calling him a “Khalistani sympathiser” said Khaira “If Union Finance and Defense Minister Arun Jaitely and External Affairs Minister Sushma Sawaraj can receive and meet Sajjan what prevents Captain Amarinder Singh from honouring him I am sure the central government must have checked the antecedents of the visiting Canadian Minister before engaging him in a dialogue If the chief minister can invite and host his Pakistani friends despite the fact that Pakistan is hell bent to destabilise the unity and integrity of India what prevents him from meeting his own Punjabi Sikh colleague” asked Khaira For all the latest Chandigarh News download
