Thousands attend funeral of Egyptians...
Port Said, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
04 Mar 2013

Thousands of residents of the Suez Canal city of Port Said in eastern Egypt rallied Monday, March 4, in a funeral procession for two men killed during clashes with security forces the day before.
Mourners gathered outside a city mosque and performed prayers for the dead Monday. They then began processions carrying the coffins one after another to the cemetery, chanting, "The martyr is the beloved of God".
Mourners chanted against the interior ministry as well as the Muslim Brotherhood, the group from which President Mohamed Morsi hails.
Port Said was revisited by violence on Saturday but the clashes in the city between protesters and police turned deadly on Sunday after 39 defendants in the Port Said Trial were transferred out of Port Said on Sunday morning.
Police fired intense rounds of teargas throughout the day at demonstrators who opposed an interior ministry decision to transfer 39 prisoners from Port Said to Wadi Natroun prison in Beheira governorate, on the other side of the Nile Delta.
Keeping the defendants in Port Said is a popular demand among the city’s residents.
The prisoners are detained on charges related to the violence at Port Said stadium in February 2012, when over 70 Ahly football club fans were killed.
Sunday's clashes also led to the death of another civilian and two police conscripts, according to the health ministry. Over 400 were injured, according to ministry sources.
This comes ahead of the expected second phase of the Port Said trial scheduled for 9 March, where the 52 remaining defendants out of the total 73 will be issued verdicts. Twenty-one defendants were issued with death sentences in the first set of verdicts.
Thousands of Port Said residents have been conducting a campaign of civil disobedience during the past two weeks to protest marginalization policies at the hands of the central government and to demand justice for those killed in recent clashes.
Several media outlets gave conflicting reports of police and army soldiers exchanging fire at the end of the tense day. Egyptian armed forces official Spokesperson Colonel Ahmed Ali denied the reports on social networks.
Military police deployed to secure the gathering. Many people have responded to a popular campaign to collect signatures to delegate the army with managing the affairs of the state.

20th Anniversary of Babri Mosque Demo...
Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh, India
By newspoint
07 Dec 2012

The 20th anniversary of Babri mosque of Ayodhya. The 6th of December 1992 became a historical date in Indian history. After the demolishment of Babri masque in the Hindu’s spiritually city Ayodhya, a rift created between the two communities (Hindu & Muslim) Ayodhya was prohibited by the Government for a long time.
A superstructure called the Babri mosque standing in the city of Ayodhya, came crashing down. It remains even today a traumatic event for the nation, because modern Indians had not yet been weaned on a true history of India but on the Macaulayian version of the destruction of the structure as criminal vandalism.
However, the real act of vandalism was the superstructure built on a hoary and existing temple, and the vandals came from abroad to demolish the temple, and to build a mosque on the same spot. But temples, once it is shown that (prana prathista puj) wordhip was performed to build it, is where God or the deity resides, and therefore a temple belongs to God forever.
Babri mosque was built as an affront to the Hindus. Otherwise it could have been built anywhere else since namaz can be offered anywhere. Hindus can be proud to have prevailed in history because despite 800 years of Islamic and 200 years of Christian domination, Bharat today is still over 80 per cent of Hindus in population, and a continuing Hindu civilisation.

Byte-Hidu’s (Sant) Pious, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“I don’t want to hurt anyone's feelings. We are doing these programs (Bhajan, Kirtan) merely for build Ram temple at Lord RAM birth place in Ayodhya. The Babri Mosque demolition is not good for Muslims but Babar was to attacker and he attacked both Hindu & Muslims. Place of prayer should not be on anyone name like (Babri mosque) BABRI MASJID.”

Byte- Eye witness, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“I am connected with these cases since 1986. It seems that the Court will not sort out this issue.”

Byte- Eye witness, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“The issue (Temple & Mosque) will not give a chance to Politicians. Whether it is Mulayam Singh Yadav (Leader of Samajwadi Party), Mayawati (Leader of Bahujan Samjwadi Party), Maneka Gandhi (Leader of Bhartiya Janta Party) or Sonia Gandhi (President of UPA). Now it should be stopped. If it continues, then there won’t be any development of Ayodhya”.

Byte-Hidu’s (Sant) Pious, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“At that time we were scared looked at the chaos. But now, I felt that incident was caused by political parties. Now we had forgotten old quarrels and live with love both Hindu & Muslim.”

Byte – Resident, Ayodhya, Utter Pradesh
“ Ayodhya has not developed yet because nobody paid priority of Lord Ramachandra. I am a Muslim guy. I can proudly say that I am a resident of Ayoddhya but there did not any kind of development. People here live in amity. Political parties try to create rift again between two communities, they have failed.”
