Quote:
An Indian engineer, A Suryanarayana from Hyderabad and his Afghan driver have been kidnapped in south Kandahar in Afghanistan.

Suryanarayana is an employee of the Bahraini company 'Al Mayyad' which is engaged in telecom and construction business in Afghanistan.

Taliban insurgents have claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.

A Taliban spokesperson said that the Taliban council would decide the fate of the abducted men.

The worker was held at gunpoint on the Kandahar-Kabul highway in the Hassan Kariez district of southern Zabul province.

The Indian government is in close touch with authorities in Afghanistan and the Bahraini company to secure the engineer's safe release, Minister of State for External Affairs E Ahamed said.

Fate of workers

This is the third incident targeting an Indian in Afghanistan in the last few months.

Four months ago, Maniappan R Kutty, a jawan of the Border Road Organisation (BRO), engaged in building of Zaranj-Delaram highway, was abducted by the Taliban.

Three days later his body was found in the Kandahar province.

In February this year, Indian engineer Bharath Kunmar, working with a Turkish firm, was killed in a bomb blast in Farah province.

Indian doctors working in various hospitals in Afghanistan also received threats from the Taliban, which were ousted from power in 2002. New Delhi has taken up with Kabul at the highest level the issue of security of all Indians working in Afghanistan.

The matter was also discussed when Afghan President Hamid Karzai visited Delhi earlier this month.


Well, Just because Indians are doing a great deal for the people out there in Afghanistan, I think Afghan government should ensure proper security arrangements for them. I do not know why they are killing or warning Indians. Indians are helping in rehabilitation of their own country. They never destroyed or never with the country that invaded them.

India has been fighting a war with Pakistan over the Kashmir Region, Right now it seems to be calm, But the situation between Hindu's and Muslims are a great factor. Islamic Countries tend to stand with other islamic countries and those who did this are radicals.

Is it right to kill or kidnap persons who come thousands of miles just to rebuild the a sloppy and a failed country ? Certainly not!!!

Indians just came to help them and they are trying to kill Indians.

Oh! look - Taliban!

But didn't George "Rambo" Bush already freedomize™ Afghanistan ?
Didn't he and his squad of heroic policy makers move on to Iraq after they were done cleaning up the "terror" and "threat" in Afghanistan ?
Why is the American "war on terror"™ now concentrated on Iraq and Iran, when there remains work to be done in Afghanistan ? It sure started out with Afghanistan and Osama.

And what happened to Osama Bin Laden ?
Was he masquerading as Saddam Hussein ?

Or was Afghanistan merely a point-of-entry, to start the "war" that American people will continue to believe is about terror - long after they've started bombing several other sovereign nations ?

Isn't there enough reason to believe that they're merely interested in forcefully installing favourable puppet governments in these nations and not in eradicating any supposed terror threat as such ?


As per the latest updates, Taliban have killed the abducted person.

Yet another token of the huge success that is the American "war on terror"™.

The abuducted Indian Engineer Suryanarayan hass been killed by Taliban. His face was thrashed brutely and his head was not attached to his body showing how cruel and sick the taliban people are. Shame on Afghanistan government.

Please do keep in mind that there are literally thousands of foreign workers in afganistan. The afghan government dosnt have the funding or manpower to assign military escorts to each one. Even then, would it really do much good? A terrorist unit with a few assualt rifles could take out a soldier or two on the back of a jeep easy. It only takes a few bullets to kill someone. Afgan troops arn't equipped with the latest gear, and are poorly trained.

Well its a pity that instead of making condolences to the victim you are making excuses or showing that this cruelty is unstoppable.

May be you do not have any heart or you are just trying to act smart. I think the later one is correct.

I understand that it is not possible to provide military escorts to everyone. But a strong political will was needed from Afghan government which the governement of Afghanistan never showed. Atleast there could be some efforts to negotiate with the abductors. Afghan governemnt never put the pressure on the abductors which was badly needed at that time. Who knows with some efforts of Afghan governemnt, an innocent life could have been saved. Even the Afghan Interior Ministry has no information about the killing of the Indian engineer even when the news was in the headlines of all major News channels all around the world.

Its surprising that Indians are not crying foul about Pakistan this time!
It usually happens that whenever any harm comes to an Indian, whether in Afghanistan or any other place, the Indians put the blame on Pakistan just as a habit. Maybe this time, indian people have themselves realized the extent of involvement of Indian Army in Afghanistan and their "anti-terror" activities there, while Pakistan has no physical presence there.
And what about the Americans in Afghanistan? Arent they the ones who have installed the Afghan Government and control them? Shouldn't they be blamed for ANY act of terror inside Afghanistan? Surely, Indians don't have guts to put any blame on Americans.

Look, if you wish to offer condolences or condemnations, offer them

Otherwise kindly **** off.

Nobody asks for your expert opinion here.

Man, how many times do i have to tell you that this post is not about pakistan. whay do you always put your long, ugly neck in and cry "pakistan, Pakistan". Create a new topic if you want to discuss about the terrorists and pakistan. I am sure you can open thousands of new threads on this topic.

Isn't it surprising to you ?
Oh, is the credit misplaced ?
You're right, we shouldn't forget Pakistan whose constant support to Taliban and asylum to it's top leaders has helped it grow.
Let's give the credit where it's due.

Kargil, 1999 ? For example ?

Indian Army involved in "anti-terror" activities in Afghanistan ?
You don't know much do you ?
Did you know that India did not support the invasion of Afghanistan ?
Pakistan, on the other hand, did.

If you know anything about this news story, you'd know that the person who was abducted and killed was not a Indian soldier fighting "terror" and meddling with other people's business - but an engineer working on the reconstruction of roads.
Perhaps Pakistan should also spend their resources helping a country rebuild instead of funding the descructive forces within.

From your absolutely off-topic, irrelevant and biased rant, I can say that you're from Pakistan. Please try to gather more facts before you end up making ridiculously biased comments.

How about the physical presence of Taliban in Pakistan ?
How about some top Taliban and Al Qaeda leaders being Pakistanis, many hiding in Pakistan, and many more still operating from Pakistan ?

Pakistanis should be thankful that their self-appointed military ruler started licking American boots as soon as Bush decided to go Rambo in Middle-East.
But as we all know, alliances between small muslim nations and America always end with the small muslim country getting bombed silly by Rambo.

You should ask your military ruler.
He has always openly supported the Rambo war on terror.
Don't you have the guts to face the facts ?

Need I remind everyone who exactly provided material support for the Mujhadeen (sp) in their fight against the soviets? Our cold war manipulation of world politics provided some very bad people with weapons. It isn't merely pakistan's fault.

Of course this is for discussing the news.

Here, the topic description does not include that you can start rattling your ******* *** about everything you want to and that s exactly ibay was doing.

We dont need another damn thread about cursing the terrorists.

we have enough of that already

Since it does not say you can curse some country in this forum and since that is what ibay was doing, I have every right to oppose that.

And so keep off and dont interfere...

SO you dont need to go around supporting ibay.

it was terrible , a india died while helping other countries ,

as someone said afghanistan cannot provide security for everyone , but it is alos true that indians are buidling roads schools , power projects houses , but still they are not allowed to provide security for thier own men , cuz the paki gov doesnt want indian army inside afghanistan ,

but india is commited to help afghan people , cuz we have been freinds for a long time , like Iran , i am proud to be an indian , i wish that india helps afghanistan more , and one day afghanistan will be able to defend itself ,

as for the pakistani connection , dont even get me started , it is true that the usa funded pakistani and the taliban to fight the russians , but it is also true after the war the pakistanis funded the taliban and helped in spreading terror all aover the world , even so that if u capture binladen and he has a chance to escape , he would head straight to pakistan ,

cuz everyone knows what goes on there , i think it is high time pakistan should be declared a terrorists state , or else it will plague the whole world with terror

It's a tragic incident as are all such incidents. It's also totally unneccessary and an act of pure evil. There is no point to such behaviour. Those responsible for the man's murder cannot possibly claim that they were doing something good, nor was it for a good reason.

These men are not close to God, nor does their behaviour show any affinity with God. The murderers behave as they do for power and control, and for their own selfish reasons. They break and destroy and do nothing positive to benefit mankind or improve the world. Such men will go down in history as another example of evil men who create human tragedy.

The fact that the victim was working on building a better country for all Afganis makes the incident worse and more tragic.

Now the afghans(taliban) blames the ISI for the Killing and say they have no role in it, which the ISI promptly denied

By the way, the ISI stands for Inter Services Intelligence.
That would be Pakistan's Spy Co.
Devil
there is a big difference between taliban and afghanis ,
