Afghanistan under Attack: What is the truth about the war?

It is well known that Pakistan want dominance in Afghanistan under the pretext of strategic depth and they have pursued this policy ever since. They see the Taliban as a tool for themselves. USA left Bagram Base on 5th July 2021 and immediately Pakistan trained warlords inaptly named Taliban started capturing villages after village and even went on to proclaim that they had captured 85% of Afghanistan. The question is: What is happening?

What is happening in Afghanistan?

The Afghan intelligence agency had recently arrested a Pakistan army officer, who was sent to Paktia province in Afghanistan by Pakistan forces to fight alongside Taliban and conduct “destructive activities” in the country, local media reported citing an official.
The officer has been identified Azim Akhtar.

For India, a key security concern is the presence in Afghanistan of more than 7,000 Pakistani terrorists from groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed. These fighters are fighting alongside the Taliban in many areas. India’s concern is also linked with Afghanistan becoming a base camp for these terrorist organization.

The Monk who dismissed the Campaign of Media Mafia

The Monk vs. Media

Yogi Adityanath is monk and is Chief Minister of State of Uttar Pradesh as member of BJP, the ruling party. Had this State been a country, it would have been fifth largest country with population of 23 Crore (230 million).

The BJP and its allies have won 67 out of 75 seats of zila panchayat chairpersons. These are Rural Local Government Election which belies earlier claims that the BJP was a net loser in Panchayat Election held before the second wave of Covid. Zila panchayat chiefs are elected from among the elected members of zila panchayats. One interesting fact about these elections is that these were conducted by ballot papers and electric EVM were not used.

The fake media campaign flops.

What is the game plan of Sharad Pawar?

Sharad Pawar, the proprietor of Nationalist Congress Party has invited Opposition leaders and other prominent personalities for a meeting today. Earlier the 80-year-old Prime Minister-ship aspirant for three decades, met poll strategist Prashant Kishor on Monday — the second time in 10 days. Speculation is rife that he is trying to stitch a coalition of non-BJP parties for the Lok Sabha elections in 2024.

Earlier, the rumor that Pawar had met Home Minister in Ahmedabad, last month, was not denied by any of the parties to that meeting. The Coalition Government in Maharshtra is barely functional. News papers are excited about possible formation of new third front without Congress Party. But look at the guest list of Pawar. His party spokesman Nawab Malik disclosed it on Twitter. According to him:

“Pawar is working to unite all opposition leaders. May be, the meeting was to discuss it. The party’s national executive meeting is also taking place in the national capital tomorrow,”

Following is the guest list:

Prashant Kishor, Farooq Abdullah, Yashwant Sinha, Pawan Verma, Sanjay Singh, D Raja, Justice AP Singh, Javed Akhtar, KTS Tulsi & Karan Thapar, Ashutosh, Advocate Majeed Memon, MP Vandana Chavan, former chief election commissioner SY Quraishi, KC Singh, Sanjay Jha, Sudheendra Kulkarni, Colin Gonsalves, economist Arun Kumar, Ghanshyam Tiwari and Pritish Nandi.

At the outset I wonder, What is the role of Javed Akhtar, a script writer in movies who is out of action for a long time except blurting out provocative statements on twitter. Yashwant Sinha of course will represent Mamta Banerjee. What will SY Quraishi do? Perhaps he is for the Muslims of India? Amazing that after remaining in Government service all his life he is still a representative of Muslims only.

The three journalists namely Karan Thapar, Ashutosh and Pritish Nandi who had always been batting for Congress seems to have been invited as representatives of Congress Party in unofficial way. Actually this is the reason why I am sharing these facts. The activist journalists would for the first time be called upon to report truthfully to the Congress Party about the outcome of the meeting.

That is interesting.

“In The Line of Fire” by Parvez Musharraf, former dictator of Pakistan.

I have had started reading the memoirs of Parvez Musharraf yesterday and I am quite surprised. It is an autobiography which starts in 1947 when Musharraf was a toddler. It is surprisingly well written in the same manner as professional novelist write. In fact it was better written than memoir of Hillary Clinton titled ‘Hard Choices in which the influence of Hillary and Ghost Writer clearly overlaps and is apparent.

Ghost Writer and Lies:

Musharraf seems to have left the matter entirely in the hands of Ghost Writer. However it does not take away the natural talent of Musharraf to lie and deceptive. Read this paragraph from page 77:

Immunity from Covid or Corona may last for decades.

There are two recent studies that suggest that immunity lasts for at least a year and it is possible that it may last for decades, at least for some people. These studies have been made on bone marrow of the persons who have been infected by Corona virus Sars-CoV-2.

The first study on Persistent Cellular Immunity to SARS-CoV-2 Infection is as under:

SARS-CoV-2 is responsible for an ongoing pandemic that affected millions of individuals around the globe. To gain further understanding of the immune response in recovered individuals we measured T cell responses in paired samples obtained an average of 1.3 and 6.1 months after infection from 41 individuals. The data indicate that recovered individuals show persistent polyfunctional SARS-CoV-2 antigen specific memory that could contribute to rapid recall responses. In addition, recovered individuals show enduring immune alterations in relative numbers of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, expression of activation/exhaustion markers, and cell division.

Summary We show that SARS-CoV-2 infection elicits broadly reactive and highly functional memory T cell responses that persist 6 months after infection. In addition, recovered individuals show enduring immune alterations in CD4+ and CD8+ T cells compartments.
