NEW DELHI : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said Pakistan had launched the Kargil war 21 years ago to distract attention from its internal problems, at a time when India was trying to build cordial ties with it. In his monthly radio address Mann Ki Baat on the anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas, Modi praised the courage of Indian soldiers, and requested Indians to remember the war s martyrs and their families. Kargil war was an attempt by Pakistan to stab India in the back. But it was the valour of the armed forces and strength of India which was visible to the entire world. India was trying to have good relations with Pakistan at the time, but it is said that there are people who try to harm those who want to be good to them. It is for this reason that Pakistan tried to stab India in the back." the Prime Minister added.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee s virtual rally on Tuesday to mark Martyrs Day could be termed as one of the most lacklustre ones since she started the event 26 years ago. The rally is held in memory of 13 Youth Congress workers who were killed in a police firing in Kolkata on July 21, 1993.Banerjee seemed short of confidence as she faced the camera and addressed people from her office, with just one colleague sitting behind her; she sought help from her booth workers and resisted taking the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and even state Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar. Her only target was the Bharatiya Janata Party.
What do all the martyrs who were victims of brutal political assassinations in Lebanon and Iraq have in common? The answer is clear: they all rejected Iran and its armed militias meddling, prioritized their countries interests, and spoke the truth freely. The degree to which the scenes in Beirut and Baghdad resemble is incredible; we could almost go as far as saying that the two popular national movements that openly rejected Iran s interference and accused it of stealing the countries of their wealth are copies of one another.Their rhetoric stressed that things had gone too far, enough was enough; remaining silent was not an option. The accumulated suffering is too great, and the ruling political regimes are riddled with corruption, governing in accordance with their interests and those of their cronies and capitulating to foreign interests and dictates. Observers affirm that the circumstances, events, and the perilous nature of this period have led the Iraqis and Lebanese to prioritize their respective countries' interests over those of their sectarian groups and to push for independent decision making in both countries, to leave the Iranian orbit and redirect their compasses toward the Arabs. True, some parties and individuals inside Iraq and Lebanon are indeed neither inclined toward nor in favor of Arab rapprochement, and they often create obstacles to hinder this kind of rapprochement because they believe that it would threaten Iranian interests in both countries. However, it seems that things are not the same as they had been, as evidenced by the difficult and unenviable situation that the groups who subordinated their countries' interests to foreign directives find themselves in today.

The world knows late Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw as the man who, as the chief of the Indian army in the 1971 Indo Pakistan War following the Bangladesh Liberation War, made great contributions to the creation of Bangladesh. Sam also fought on the Burma front as a Captain of the 12th Frontier Force and was seriously wounded fighting the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. But the world is unaware that another Manekshaw Lt Jamshed Manekshaw (Jimmy) was also defending the Indian territory against the Japanese invasion in the Dohazari region of the Chittagong front during World War II. While Sam survived the bullet wounds, Jamshed died in action in Dohazari and he became an unsung martyr. Lt Jamshed Manekshaw died on May 14, 1944.Lt Jamshed belonged to Bulsar in Gujarat state of undivided India and he worked in Kabul in Afghanistan before he joined the Indian army as a commissioned officer. He was sent to fight against the Japanese Imperial forces in the northeast part of India and in the Chittagong s areas. These areas which were then part of the erstwhile East Bengal are now part of Bangladesh. A large number of Indians, British, Australian and Africans died in action fighting here. Based on their religion the last rites of these brave soldiers were performed in the various war cemeteries built by the British army in the region. They were designated military cemeteries where the martyrs were laid to rest with full military honours. Lt Jamshed Manekshaw belonged to the Parsi community in India; the Parsis are Zoroastrians who fled from Iran to settle down in India. The Parsis who settled down in Gujarat after escaping from Iran facing persecution later spread to various parts of India and excelled in business. They contributed to the economy of undivided India and a few families had businesses in Dhaka and Chittagong too. There was one businessman, Mr Merdhora, who lived in Chittagong then and the British took his help in performing the last rites of Lt Jamshed.
