Power Grid says fear of tripping at 9:09 PM on 5 April baseless

Once the Ministry of Power made its statement, the critics cut a sorry figure, with politicians asking why the prime minister's statements call for clarifications and 'experts' saying this was avoidable

Terrorist links of Tablighi Jamaat include Masood Azhar, Osama bin Laden

Maulana Masood Azhar, the founder of the terrorist group Harkat ul Mujahideen which underwent several name changes to finally become Jaish-e-Mohammed, is not only a member of the Tablighi Jamaat but also a once close associate of Osama bin Laden

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillor Tahir Hussain is facing allegations that he has had a hand in instigating the riots in Delhi over the amended citizenship law (CAA). The family of Intelligence Bureau (IB) security assistant Ankit Sharma, who was killed in the violence, has accused Tahir Hussain of conspiring to kill him.

Tahir faces an additional allegation that miscreants threw stones and hurled petrol bombs at people from his Chandbagh home on 25 February. Tahir continues to deny this, but now a video has surfaced, in which a lot of stones and petrol bombs are seen on the roof of his house.

On the roof of Tahir Hussain’s house, stones filled in sacks and petrol bombs kept in carats have been found. Tahir is currently not at home.

Twitter users like the following have posted videos that show miscreants throwing stones and petrol bombs from the roof of Tahir Hussain’s house earlier. There are tweets with videos with members of the family of Ankit Sharma testifying against the rioters.

Tahir denies his role in the riot. He said that he was not in his house at the time of the incident. “BJP leaders are plotting to discredit me,” he said.

The Delhi High Court heard on Wednesday a case of riots in the capital where Justice S Muralidhar (transferred to the Punjab-Haryana High Court last night) reprimanded Delhi Police for not registering an FIR against politicians for “hate speech”. The hearing continues today (Thursday).

The collegium had recommended his transfer a week earlier, which the government approved on Wednesday night.

More than 30 people have died in the violence that raged in Delhi on 24 and 25 February. More than 200 people are injured.

Most of the injured are admitted to GTB Hospital in Delhi. The hospital administration said that the condition of 10 of them is very serious.

Eighteen cases of rioting have been registered in different police stations. The police have arrested 106 miscreants.

Violence has stopped in sensitive areas for the time being, but tension persists.

Meanwhile, a large section of the mainstream media, both Indian and foreign, has been building a narrative that is beyond ridiculous. According to them, Hindu mobs have been pouring into the streets since last Sunday, asking people what their religion is, and killing the interrogated persons on knowing they are Hindu!
