additional charge to an official The Chief Secretary has full powers to give additional charge I have done that several times She is not aware of the rules" He said there was a direction from the Puducherry assembly Speaker on the matter "Some officer is kept out temporarily The officer may be brought back after a week Why is she getting worked up" Parida said He wondered why Bedi is taking on officials in the Union Territory Major political parties in Puducherry have teamed up against Bedi a former Indian Police Service officer and want her recall by the Centre The latest spat is part of the battle for supremacy between elected Chief Minister V Narayanasamy and Bedi over the transfer of Puducherry Municipal Commissioner R Chandrasekaran The issue cropped up when Chandrasekaran held a function on Swachh Bharat Mission without inviting a local legislator who in turn sought action against the official The Chief Secretary in an order dated March 30 gave the additional charge of Municipal Commissioner to S Ganesan Director of Arts and Culture The order specified that Chandrasekaran will report to the Chief Secretary for further posting But Bedi quoting rules said only the Lt Governor has the powers to transfer officials and reinstated Chandrasekaran on the post after cancellation of the transfer orders Written by Khaled Ahmed | Published: December 18 2014 12:47 am The day General Sharif realises Pakistan’s internal dysfunction has been caused by its foreign policy and that only a radical change of this policy can end this dysfunction he will succeed in ‘normalising’

20 The school caters to 500 sons of army personnel The killers were dressed in official paramilitary uniform familiar to the peopleof Peshawar and according to the survivors spoke Arabic signalling an international dimension But “international” here meant different things to different people Predictably Hafiz Saeed of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) with a $10 million bounty on his head declared from Lahore that once again “India has done it” He is so powerful that many clerics joined him slavishly swearing revenge on India whichhad repeated the “fall of Dhaka” inPeshawar on its anniversary dateof December 16 TV channels carried the news that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had rung up counterpart Nawaz Sharif to condole with him and condemn the massacre Indeed the entire world pitched in to show solidarity with a victim state too psychologically damaged by decades of terrorism to understand what was happening The BBC noted that Sharif while condemning the attack had not named the Taliban People got on Facebook wondering if Imran Khan whose government is ruling in Peshawar would condemn the Taliban by name Five hours late Khan came out and condemned the tragic incident When asked if he would condemn the Taliban he said the situation was not yet clear It was clear enough though Taliban spokesman Muhammad Khorasani announced: “The Peshawar school attack was in retaliation for the ongoing Operation Zarb-e-Azb There were six attackers They included target-killers and suicide-attackers” Commentators on TV channels were too shaken to remember that they had to blame India so that Pakistanis could “stand together as a nation” They wanted to know if the powerful people — as semi-warlords are known in Pakistan — would condemn the Taliban directly They noted that Maulana Samiul Haq of Madrassah Haqqaniya in Nowshera neighbouring Peshawar had kept mum Most Taliban leaders were graduates from his seminary giving validity to Kabul’s charge that the savagery in the Afghan terrorist battlefield was not homegrown but had come from Pakistan Haq had helped the Taliban kill former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in 2008 by allowing the hit team to stay the night at his madrassa A book authored by UN Assistant Secretary General Heraldo Munoz who had led a UN inquiry commission into the Bhutto assassination expressed strong suspicion that officers answering to then president Pervez Musharraf had gotthe Taliban to do the job The task before the Pakistan army is complex The violence of the Taliban has been internalised and Pakistanis in general behave abnormally under conditions of stress Last month in Kot Radhakishan near Lahore a mob burned a Christian couple alive on the charge of blasphemy under a horribly flawed law that Pakistan continues to defend on the basis of national consensus Religion has been twisted beyond recognition The Taliban who killed the children in Peshawar asked the victims to recite religious verse (kalima) before dying proving once again how religion has been criminalised Pakistan was much less perturbed when in September 2013 two suicide bombers blew up the All Saints Church located inside the old walled city of Peshawar after a Sunday service killing nearly 100 worshippers leaving 54 orphaned children 16 widows and seven widowers The federal government pledged Rs 200 million as aid but Bishop Humphrey Peters of the Peshawar Diocese is still waiting for the money Jundallah a religious party-based terrorist outfit claimed the church attack but when it took responsibility for another attack on Maulana Fazlur Rehman of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam in Quetta he blamed America instead PM Sharif has called an all-party conference to discuss the Peshawar school massacre but Rehman still scared of naming the Taliban — he has been attacked by them thrice — demanded that the conference accept the entire range of views presented by attending leaders He will most probably name the Americans once again because 80 per cent of Pakistanis will believe him He lives in Dera Ismail Khan in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa which is a gateway district to the Taliban of North and South Waziristan and would be a sitting duck if he spoke his mind The only person not scared is the army chief General Raheel Sharif who has taken the war to the Taliban’s strongholds after his predecessors resisted international pressure and allowed the terrorist “safe havens” to exist In fact the world suspected — the Afghans would swear by it — that the Pakistan army was in cahoots with the Taliban This change of strategy by General Sharif is too radical after decades of a dubious interface between Pakistan and its tormentors This is already old hat if you look at what is happening in the victim Muslim states of the Middle East and Africa He has to take vast swathes of territory back from the killers Pakistan gave safe havens to and then used against its neighbours The day he realises that Pakistan’s internal dysfunction has been caused by Pakistan’s foreign policy and that only a radical change of this policy can end this dysfunction he will succeed in “normalising” the state By foreign policy one means relations with India The irony is in the bipartisan political system of Pakistan both the Pakistan People’s Party and the Pakistan Muslim League have tried by turns to “normalise” relations with India through trade Each time however the army has prevented them from changing the paradigm of confrontation Pakistan has persisted in its foreign policy at the cost of total regional and global isolation The time has come to end

is poisoning US democracy and Israel’s today — swaggering oligarchs using huge sums of money to try to bend each system to their will Reuters Related News Prescriptions of an influential pro-Israel billionaire could end up isolating Tel Aviv It occurredto me the other day that the zealously pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson and Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei actually have one big thing in common They are both trying to destroy Israel Adelson is doing it by loving Israel to death and Khamenei by hating Israel to death What’s the logic Very simple Iran’s leaders want Israel destroyed but have no desire in my view to use a nuclear bomb to do it That would expose them to retaliation and sure death Their real strategy is more subtle: Do everything possible to ensure that Israel remains in the “occupied territory” as the US State Department refers to the West Bank won by Israel in the 1967 war By supporting Palestinian militants dedicated to destroying any peace process Tehran hopes to keep Israel permanently mired in the West Bank and occupying 27 million Palestinians denying them any statehood and preventing the emergence of a Palestinian state that might recognise Israel and live in peace alongside it The more Israel is stuck there the more Palestinians and the world will demand a “one-state solution” with Palestinians given the right to vote The more Israel resists that the more isolated it becomes Iran and its ally Hamas have plenty of evidence that this strategy is working: Israel’s 47-year-old occupation of the West Bank has led it to build more settlements there and in doing so make itself look like the most active colonial power on the planet today The 350000 Israeli settlers in the West Bank reinforce that view by claiming their presence in the West Bank is not about security but a divinely inspired project to reunite the Jewish people with their biblical homeland The result is a growing movement on college campuses and in international organisations to isolate and delegitimise the Jewish state because of this occupation This “BDS movement” — to boycott divest from and sanction Israel — is gaining adherents not only among non-Jews on American campuses but even within some Hillels campus Jewish centres And now Iran has an ally: Sheldon Adelson — the foolhardy Las Vegas casino magnate and crude right-wing pro-Israel extremist Adelson gave away some $100 million in the last presidential campaign to fund Republican candidates with several priorities in mind: that they delegitimise the Palestinians and that they avoid any reference to the West Bank as “occupied territories” and any notion that the US should pressure Israel to trade land for peace there Both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney took the money and played by Sheldon’s rules In case you missed it the RJC the Republican Jewish Coalition held a retreat last weekend at an Adelson casino in Las Vegas It was dubbed “the Sheldon Primary” Adelson personifies everything that is poisoning our democracy and Israel’s today — swaggering oligarchs using huge sums of money to try to bend each system to their will I don’t know if Israel has a Palestinian partner for a secure withdrawal from the West Bank or ever will But I know this: If Israel wants to remain a Jewish democratic state it should be doing everything it can to nurture such a partner or acting unilaterally to get out Because I’m certain that when reports about the “Adelson primary” reached the desk of Supreme Leader Khamenei in Tehran a big smile crossed his face and he said to his aides: “May Allah grant Sheldon a long life Everything is going according to plan” For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsGiven how the Chhath Puja
