I am truly disappointed in the financial reward. It is a cruel joke. It would have been better not to offer a reward. I can see that amount for an informant but here is a lady who got hold of live bombs and took timely action to save many lives at the risk of her marriage and facing possible ostracizing from her community. I urge Narendrabhai Modi to rectify this mistake and announce suitable reward.
This is Narendra Modi’s Gujarat where a Muslim woman comes forward to expose her own husband’s nefarious, anti-national activity and they (anti-Modi brigade) say that Muslims live in fear in Gujarat!

Shehzad nabbed by police on Sunday
The government of Gujarat has taken a decision to honor a brave Muslim lady Reshma of Ahmedabad who yesterday informed the police about her husband’s activity of making crude bombs and his plan to do bomb blasts in the city. Reshma’s husband Shehzad was later arrested by police with 8 crude bombs and two desi tamanchas.
Reshma living near Chandola lake of Ahmedabad’s Muslim dominated Danilimda area had helped the police earlier also. Few years back, with Reshma’s help, police had nabbed Bangladeshi intruders living illegally in this area.
After her husband’s arrest, Reshma had said that she wanted to save lives of many people by informing the police about her husband’s activities.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today announced on Tweeter :”Gujarat Home minister will felicitate brave Reshma with prize of Rs 25,000 for exposing her husband in national interest.”
Reshma was today visited at her residence by Gujarat Minister of state for Home Shri Praful Patel, Ahmedabad Police Commissioner Shri Sudhir Sinha, Gujarat Police Chief DGP Chitranjan Singh. Shri Patel, Sinha and Singh appreciated and congratulated her for her brave act of public good.Minister Praful Patel presented Reshma a cheque of Rs. 25,000 as a bravery award.
Mr. Patel profusely praised Ms. Reshmaben’s courage despite being a woman, rising above her concern for a close relationship, its repercussion and likely reaction in her close society. He described the act as a great personal sacrifice in the larger interest of the national security.
Chief Minister Narendra Modi described the Ms. Reshmaben’s sacrifice as an exemplary act for the security of six crore Gujaratis, displaying a rare example of communal amity.
Mr. Singh in a word of praise for Ms Reshmaben for setting a rare example of paying more importance to the motherland and nation’s interest rather that her own family. He said that such information or tips lead to solving several criminal cases.
Mr. Sinha offered Ms. Reshmaben a job in the Traffic Brigade and assured to provide her all possible security if required.
Talking to newspersons present on the occasion, Ms. Reshmaben, who studied up to Standard XII in Mumbai, said that she would always side with the law of the land and fearlessly expose criminal activities, even if they were her close relatives, and asked all womenfolk to do the same.
Meanwhile Shehzad was sent to ten days remand by the court today in Ahmedabad.
In another development, the Gujarat Police has taken a decision to hand over the Shehzad case to Anti Terrorist Squad. This decision was taken in view of Shehzad’s confession that he wanted to throw bombs indiscriminately during Ahmedabad’s annual Rath Yatra. Seven ATM cards and sim cards are recovered from Shehzad’s possession.

The Muslims who had voluntarily welded broken hook of wooden Rath during Ahmedabad’s annual Rath Yatra in Muslim dominated Dariapur area were honored by Ahmedabad Police on Monday.
Police Commissioner Shri Sudhir Sinha honored Mohammad Arif, Mohammad Asif, Ahmed Hussain and Shahid on Sunday at Dariapur police station in a function. They were given certificates of appreciation.
It should be mentioned that Ahmedabad’s Rath Yatra passes through about half a dozen Muslim dominated areas on the route.
This year like past many years, the Muslims overwhelmingly welcomed Rath Yatra, they volunteered by setting up stalls to offer free water and sweet drink. They welcomed Jagannath Mandir’s Mahant in groups, took prashad and also repaired a hook of the Rath when Rath yatra had to be halted due to broken hook of wooden Rath.

Attempts yet again to block Amarnath Yatra
The Amarnath Yatra, as every year, would initiate only on Jyeshth
Shukla Purnima, June 15
May 25, 2011,New Delhi – Once again having decided to bar the Amarnath Yatra under signals from the Pakistani separatists ofKashmir, backer of the separatists Mr. Mufti Mohammad Saeed and the central government submissive to the dictates of the separatists, the Jammu & Kashmir Governor Sri Narinder Nath Vohra has humiliated the Dharmic-patriotic sentiments of the Hindus of the country.
For the last several years the Amarnath Yatra has been conducted for two months at a stretch starting from the full-moon day of the bright fortnight of the month of Jyeshtha to the full-moon day of the month of Shraavan. The ice Shivalingam (sign of Shiva – the auspicious one) attains its utmost dimensions on the day of Jyestha Purnima, and after this it gradually starts melting and by Shraavani Purnima it gets melted considerably. On the day of Jyestha Purnima, the macro size ice Shivalingam is there for the devotees to have its Darshan.
The Yatra continues for two months from Jyestha Purnima to Shravani Purnima that attracts about 400,000 pilgrims to Jammu & Kashmir from all over the country and abroad. They gain in spiritual merits by the Darshan, internalize the divine blessings and return with high spirits. The Yatra is very much a spirituo-patriotic pilgrimage and mountain adventure. It strengthens national unity and territorial integrity and there is ample opportunity for much economic activity and income generation for the local populace and the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
For some years now the Pakistani separatists ofKashmirhave been making attempts so that this spirituo-nationalist Yatra discontinues for all times to come for obvious reasons. The terrorists had threatened to jeopardize the Yatra in 1995 and this year also they have issued threats. Once they had even mounted an attack on the Yatra. By mounting a violent movement last year, the separatists of Kashmir had forced the state government to take back the midway Yatra camp land that hosted the pilgrims which the people of Jammu got back for the pilgrims by long-drawn counter movement. Now again under motions from separatists, their supporter Mufti Mohammad Saeed and the central government the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir has opposed the commencement of the Yatra on Jyestha Shukla Purnima, i.e., falling on June 15, 2011 this year, and declared its commencement from June 29, 2011. Paying deaf ears to the suggestions of the Sant fraternity ofJammuand the whole country and the Hindu organizations to start the Yatra on June 15, 2011, he has instead submitted to the pressure tactics of the separatists.
The two-month-long Yatra mobilizes people from all nooks & corners of the country thereby strengthening national unity. It enhances economic development and job opportunities for the people of Jammu & Kashmir. Is the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir against national unity? Is he against enhancement in job opportunities in the state? Is he against economic development of the state? Does he carry a brief for the Pakistani separatists and carry their agenda? The Dharmic and Social organizations of Jammu and the whole country and all commercial organizations ofJammuhave taken a collective decision that like every year the Amarnath Yatra would be commenced from Jyestha Purnima June 15, 2011.
When the prominent citizens of Jammu & Kashmir called on the Chief Minister, he assured them that the Yatra for two months from 15 June would be provided with security cover. On June 15, 2011. the Yatra would be flagged off by Jagadguru Sankaracharya HH Vasudevananda Saraswatiji and former supercop Sardar K.P.S. Gill.
The people of the country are urged upon to assert their Dharmic rights by joining the Yatra from June 15 and have Darshan of Baba Amnarnath. The Jammu & Kashmir Governor is hereby given a clear warning that if he ever tries to bar the two-month long Yatra or create hurdles in its infrastructural arrangements and the streamlining processes, he will have to face with stiff resistance and reaction from the whole country the consequences of which will squarely fall on the Governor who seems to function under pointers received from anti-Hindu elements and separatists.
