Pradeep, India: [ RE: Mangalore: A 'Flat' Question - What if Vehicle Tyre is Deflated for Wrong Parking? ] Reply to Pradeep, India Sep 16, 2014
Impose a hefty amount of fine. Eg: 2000 Rs Upwards for parking in no parking zone. Not to mention these 2 wheelers who park in the 4 wheeler parking zone should be fine upwards of Rs 1000 per voilation.

Now, very soon Scots are going to decide by ballot whether they should secede from the United Kingdom or remain with it.

I personally feel that if Scotland decides to secede, then it would be beset with plenty of problems.

Many banks and estahlishments will close their shops and move to England. Scotland will have to import each and every thing, barring scotch whisky and water. If Scotland becomes independent, then the Government will have to tax the people heavily, just to survive.

Finally, many Scots will leave their country to take up employment overseas.

Siva, USA: [ RE: All Muslims are Not Terrorists! Sad Part is that Some Journos Don't Know That? ] Reply to Siva, USA Sep 16, 2014
I agree with the author but there are a few things he went overboard. For example, this sentence: "..I guess hell broke lose, when these officials found out that this traveler was a Muslim and since he was little reluctant in giving some proper answers back to them, they arrested him and spread some false details about him to certain media personals, who published/broadcast in their respective media sources.."

First let us not belittle the work of security staff. Anywhere in the world today Air travel has become extremely vulnerable. Security forces have a job to do; a serious and responsible one at that. When a traveler does not answer some questions straight, they have a right - sorry, they have a duty to perform - yes, interrogate the traveler and possibly detain until a "all clear" signal is got.
This kind of things happen very often in the USA because the security staff here take their job seriously. No one can question them when they are doing their duty. We need to support our security staff the same way. We need to applaud them for their alertness. It is not just wrong but also extremely condemn-able to accuse them saying that he was interrogated because he was a Muslim. In today's situation better be safe than sorry. If some incidents happen, we will be the first one to throw stones at the security staff.

Yes, if the security staff leaked this to the press, then they have gone against the call of their duty. If they said he belonged to IS or something like that they should be punished. But let us not punish them for being alert and interrogating a passenger who had something in the bag that was suspecious. We should commend them rather then condemn them on the safety count.

A few mistakes of this passenger:
1. Accepting a package without knowing the content. Being a US citizen, Alfie should know that, that itself is an offence in the US and many other countries.

2. Taking any chemical is not adviceable unless you know it is 100% safe. Because you never know what can happen when they are subjected to very high to very cold temperature and varying pressure.

3. Not answering the question properly to security question.

Finally, touchy subject of being questioned as a Muslim. one part of my name sounds like a Muslim name. Most of the time I go through the security here I am questioned as well as screened. It is very painful but I understand where they are coming from. They do not want to take any chance. We all know how Abdul Kalam, and actor Khans have been treated here in the US. Even after scores of article being written about it, the security has not changed their routine because passenger safety and aircraft safety are paramount to them. After 9/11, they know how serious their lapse can be. And if such things can happen in the US, it can happen elsewhere also.

In this case it is mistake of the guy who should be aware of what he is carrying. Security have only done their job. They should check each everything that they feel suspicious. But its media that gave a different angle altogether. By uploading different pictures which were not related to the this matter. It is frightening to see how they try effect peoples mind and portray someone's image. They are trying to influence people to think what they want them think. This cheap and low level of journalism. You don't spat on someone to sell your news paper.

All Muslims are not terrorists,pls do not label any religion. Admit these crpf guilt. they like encounter style,want to be get promoted,and this guy could had lost his job.but the torture IN his mind will always be taunted as terrorists. To me,a guy can be terrorist, solely my opinion, cause, in the hands of corrupt officials, trying to portray INNOCENT VICTIMS,, and label them, as they have no money to fight for justice. AND THEY TAKE THIS ROOT OF Arrogant violence style. SO bLAME THE CORRUPT SYSTEM.

I am with muslim brotherhood, in this case, and appreciate, proper inquiry takes place, along qwith suitable compensation, and the crpf guy who manns the airport should be sent from this place back to his place of origin.

Of course its right to say " All Muslims are not Terrorists" But "Most of the Terrorists are Muslims". This is the reason behind all chaos in security checking for Muslims.

This incident shows how ou media is misusing their power to get the TRP.. Very interesting thing is that TV9 Kannada was shown comletely nonsense and discussed about the terrorism and asking which group of terrorist he represents. And they shown and confirmed that he is terrorist and direct connection with syria .... what a shame TV9 and people should ask TV9 to show the same programme again with respect to this man and ask sorry with viewers. if anybody have touch wit TV9 , please ask them to have to show to viewers about innocence of this man..

Hi Mangalorean Team,

I congratulate you for doing what media is supposed to do. i.e Report the facts and not sensationalize issues to get more website clicks.

Article is well written and puts things into perspective. Anybody who terrorists any innocent human being is a terrorist irrespective of his religion. Any anybody who is innocent is innocent irrespective of which religion he belongs to.

Original RSS Pai does not like U.T.Khadar speaking the truth. For, truth is that the arrested man is not a terrorist, even though a Muslim.

If he were a terrorist and not a Hindu, RSS Pai would have moved heaven and earth to call him a traitor and alleged Congress is responsible for all this!

why hate speeches against only minority should invoke IPC. Any hate speech either against Majority or Minority should invoke appropriate IPC.

For all those who travel by air, this is the very first rule to remember!! If you ever accept any package from a third party, you should always know what the contents are. We should all applaud MIA officials for being very vigilant.
Anand Dsilva, UAE: [ RE: Mangalore: Victim of Malicious News, Now Cleared of Slur, Leaves for Dubai ] Reply to Anand Dsilva, UAE Sep 16, 2014
High time action should be taken against the website who portrayed the news in a twisting manner. I think it is done on a daily basis without understanding the rift that it causes among people of different faiths.

We all need a forum to express our views and dissent but not reach a point where the portals encourages sowing venom. A future generation may grow up only criticizing, hating and being opinioned.

Just like there is a mob and a leader who incites the mob the websites does the same. The headlines itself are crass & deliberately misleading. Shame on them and their patronizers who use or rather misuse to comment insensibly most of them of a very low IQ indeed.

The names of these websites itself indicate the source and the class. There were some afternoon newspapers in Mangalore who also used to sensationalize news mostly about sex, street fights etc. I hope there is a regulatory body that monitors these websites and perhaps they will act by restraining the news, rephrasing the headlines.

all very suspicous indeed. hats of to security personnel. we feel safe to travel from mangalore. as far as the minister is concerned, let him worry about medical health in mangalore.

Well said, Mr. Fali. Hate speeches against minorities has increased under the new Govt.

If the Penal code is invoked against hate-mongers, then our Rampa's Amit Shah, Swami Adityanath and that new fellow minister called Maharaj something will all be locked up.

Also, it is indeed strange that the PM is busy banging on drums to drum up investment but is quiet on such matters.

Funny article but very much true-- sometimes it is very disgusting to see lots of clothes hanging from the balcony of high-class apartments, which spoils the beauty of those structures.

The builders should chalk out some rules i connection with this issue. Well reporting Mr Dsouza.

Original R.Pai, USA: [ RE: Mangalore: Thorough Investigation Should be done on Rumours of Bomb & Terrorism at MIA - U T Khader ] Reply to Original R.Pai, USA Sep 16, 2014
This is an indirect attempt to bully and intimidate the vigilant media and security officials at MIA from doing their job. It makes me feel very secure when I see the MIA officials taking no chance on these cases. They did the right thing by confiscating the questionable material, questioning the individual and taking help from experts in finding the truth. Agreed – it must have been a very inconvenient and frustrating experience for Mr.Abdulla. This is not different from all those thousands of cases in western world where questionable activities in airports are questioned and investigated. Even Sharukh Khan doesn’t get any special treatment. This is the small price we all have to pay in today’s world threatened by a common enemy whose only focus is to hurt innocent civilians as we all saw in 9/11 and Mumbai terror attacks.

Did this politician call any press conference when guys are caught for gold smuggling almost on daily basis? Did he have any explanation as to why the individuals caught in almost every single incident come from the same community? Why is he making such a big deal based on one incident? This is the sad state of politics practiced by Congress party.

The eminent Fali Sam Nariman has laid it out bare of the true character of the jingoistic nationalism as practiced today by Sangh Parivar.

The problem is that Modi is eagerly stuffing judicial appointments with pliant judges who will do his bidding than render impartial justice, so going to judiciary will ultimately be rendered useless.

KCA-UK has been a stage to unite all the Mangaloreans to a substantial degree in the United Kingdom in the course of the most recent 9 years. The deliberations and the activity taken by different members and their families is exceedingly honorable. May Mother Mary favor every single family who have helped in the improvement of KCAUK. Never the less, thank you everyone for being a part of KCAUK family and anticipate your further development in the years to come. May God bless all your hard work.
