China refutes media reports of Indian diplomat's mistreatment

(Xinhua)

09:33, January 05, 2012

BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday said media reports that an Indian diplomat was mistreated in a court case in the eastern Chinese city of Yiwu were not factually accurate.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the remarks in response to a question at a regular press briefing.

Some media reports said that S. Balachandran, from the Indian Consulate General in Shanghai, was not allowed access to food and medication and was attacked by an angry crowd while offering consular assistance to two Indian businessmen on trial in Yiwu, Zhejiang province.

The Indian Embassy in Beijing on Tuesday urged Indian nationals not to do business in Yiwu after the release of the reports.

Hong said, in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and other relevant laws and regulations, China has always protected the personal safety of foreign consular officials and provided them with assistance when carrying out their duties.

He stressed that China is a country under the rule of law and relevant Chinese departments have always protected the legal rights of Indian citizens in China according to law.

The case is an individual one triggered by economic disputes and China's judicial department is now handling the case in accordance with law, he said.

China attaches great importance to friendly relations with India and hopes the Indian side will treat the case in an objective and fair manner, Hong added.

Hong also called on the Indian authorities to educate and guide the country's businessmen in China to abide by Chinese laws and regulations, practice honesty and trustworthiness and operate legally.

He said that Yiwu, as China's largest small-commodity distributing center, welcomes business people from worldwide to do business in the city.

Here is my letter to the press dated April 28, 2006:---------------START QUOTE-------------Dear Editor:Regarding the case of a novel by an Indian sophomore at Harvard: a graduate student from the Indian subcontinent at Boston"s Northeastern University was accused of plagiarism because the quality of English in assigned work she turned in for a course was incomparably superior to anything she was capable of writing and, to prove this, she was required to answer the same questions in the presence of a faculty member. She wrote about thirty pages in perhaps two hours which exactly reproduced what she had earlier turned in. The faculty member alleged she had copied from papers she had with her. In her rebuttal, the student wrote this faculty member was watching her like the proverbial "hawk" throughout this session and her charge of copying was a "damnable lie". She explained, in her rebuttal and to her faculty adviser, that she had "memorized" what she reproduced in the presence of the faculty member. The lying faculty member was obliged to leave the university.The Harvard sophomore, an Indian-American, says (New York Times, April 27 "06, Internet) she had read the books from which she is alleged to have plagiarized three or four times, that she has a "photographic memory" and had last read the books some time before she wrote her own book. Psychologist B. F. Skinner, whose plagiarism I exposed (see letter dated February 26 "05 below), upon which he was awarded an honorary doctorate by Harvard and I was mugged in a Harvard seminar (see letter dated May 11 "05 below), wrote in his "Notebooks" that the practice, several thousands of years old and still continuing, of Brahmin priests memorizing entire books (such as the Vedas) may have had a (genetically) "selective effect" endowing them with superior memory (and other cognitive abilities). Memorization of very long texts is still the standard way students learn, at all levels, in the Indian subcontinent and the practice is not limited to Brahmin priests (the Northeastern University student was Muslim). Such ability, commonplace to Indians, is astonishing to Americans. The Harvard sophomore, of Indian origin with near perfect SAT scores, can be expected to have genetically superior memory and her explanation of how she came to reproduce portions of books she had read is believable. This does not mean that she did not intentionally plagiarize, just that her explanation is credible.Skinner, author of "Verbal Behavior", describes playing the "sedulous ape" to established authors as a way budding authors learn. Examples of similarities between the Harvard sophomore"s novel and the novels she read (Boston Globe, April 25 "06, Internet) would have fit this description if the similarities were intentional. The similarities could be unconscious yet intentional (there are unconscious intentions). But they could have been both unconscious and unintentional, because of the way a person"s verbal repertoire is formed. Skinner"s own plagiarism was infinitely more serious (see my paper in BEHAVIORISM, Spring, 1976). Skinner was voted by American psychology department chairpersons as the most influential living psychologist and, along with Sigmund Freud, one of the two most influential psychologists of all time. A survey showed that his world-wide reputation exceeded the combined reputation of the thirty or so Nobel prize winners in the Boston area. It was based on his position of "radical behaviorism" which he defined in terms of his opposition to what he called "mentalism" and Freud, of course, is the great mentalist. For his position to be viable, he had to provide an account of the so-called "higher mental processes" such as language, which he did in "Verbal Behavior". By showing that his account of language was simply a refinement of the work of Freud, my paper in BEHAVIORISM eliminated any basic distinction between his position and Freud"s and the basis for his claim to being a great and original thinker. In a question and answer session with thousands of his followers who packed the grand ballroom of the Hilton hotel in Chicago in May, 1977, he was very angrily denounced by his own followers, such as by one who stood up, livid with rage, shouting, referring to my paper and its implications ("SATISH CHANDRA HAS SHOWN..."), for the fraud he had perpetrated on them and the world; his world-wide reputation and appearance on TIME magazine"s cover, etc., were due to the fundamental importance of the basic nature of human beings, for prescriptions on how they should live and be educated and governed, issues of freedom, etc., of whether they are machines or have a mind or soul and how they function. Skinner acknowledged "similarities" between him and Freud shown by "Chandra" in "BEHAVIORISM", but had no response beyond first emphatically and aggressively saying "Or Jesus Christ! Or B. F. Skinner!" in the same breath, then minimizing the importance of such matters by appealing to the general state of ethics and what is acceptable in academia with a light-hearted "what--Miller wrote it, Gallanter takes credit for it, Pribram believes it!" (these were co-authors of a book in cognitive psychology). Upto then, Skinner had had his critics such as Chomsky of M.I.T. but had, correctly, maintained that Chomsky"s review of "Verbal Behavior" was based on very poor scholarship and a misunderstanding of his position. He could not say that about my paper in BEHAVIORISM, the principal vehicle for theoretical work in radical behaviorism, whose editor called me with profound emotion about a day after he received it and wrote to me "Heartiest congratulations on what I regard to be a major contribution to work in the field". From Germany alone, more than two dozen psychologists wrote me requesting reprints, besides every behaviorist in the United States. That paper was effective in a way that Chomsky"s was not and killed behaviorism ( the journal"s name has been changed to "Behavior and Philosophy"). Skinner himself wrote to me (see excerpts from his letter on my web page: http://www.Psychotherapy.eboard.com ) about that paper, before the above session with his followers, "...want to tell you, while the spell is on me, how much I admire what you have done. You have made a much more courageous use of the autoclitic and the atomic operant than I did, with breath-taking results. Seldom have I read a paper that seemed to me to contain so much that was new and forward-moving...", etc. But after the above session with his followers, his behavior was very different (see the letter sequence below).Verbal behavior is a far more complicated matter than either Skinner or Freud (or cognitive psychology) provide for. For example, person A can show induction from person B"s verbal behavior without ever coming into contact (as conventionally understood) with person B"s verbal behavior. The Harvard sophomore, though, had repeated, extended contact with the other author"s books. In an example (Boston Globe, April 24 "06, Internet) both authors refer to "170 specialty stores". This puts a question mark on intentional plagiarizing, because an intentional plagiarizer would have changed the number to something other than 170.Satish Chandra ---------------END QUOTE-------------This is from my press release of July 11, 2011(see my blog):-"The violence Ram Dev and followers faced was not a billionth part of the violence I faced in a Harvard University seminar which I described in my letter dated July 27, 1982 to Indira Gandhi as prime minister as "the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India". In her reply dated July 29, 1982 she wrote "Dear Mr. Chandra, I have received your letter dated July 27, 1982 and am passing it on to my Principal Secretary to deal with it. Sincerely, Indira Gandhi". But I never heard from the Principal Secretary, P. C. Alexander and as I wrote in my blog "This bugger should be hung up by the heels and asked why". For six and a half months I lived in an M.I.T. library which used to be open 24-hours, sleeping on the chairs at night and going without food for up to three weeks at a time. When I felt sick due to starvation and went to a Cambridge hospital, they refused to admit me. When I went to another Cambridge hospital, the doctor, refusing to admit me said "This is not the Holiday Inn!". The entire Indian community at M.I.T. knew I was starving and being persecuted because my work had put me in a position of leadership in my field and the Indian government sent a minister/secretary to speak to them and reassure them. Later, when I was similarly starving in an M.I.T. dormitory where an Iranian let me in during summer vacation, 1980 -- my pulse was 49 when I once checked it -- and where an Indian graduate student said to his Indian dinner guests while I lay starving on a couch a few feet away "If you start talking like this, CIA peeche par jati hai (the CIA gets after you)", I was almost jailed by M.I.T. campus police when this Indian falsely accused me of stealing a handful of cereal. As I wrote in an article titled "The Soviet Coup" two decades ago, "Year after year after year, I had trouble buying enough flour -- the cheapest source of calories besides margarine -- to keep my weight from falling" to about half of my normal weight."This is from my press release dated April 26, 2011 (see my blog):-"The biggest scandal in India is C.I.A. rule over India through RAW and C.I.A.-RAW"s control of India"s prime ministers, politicians and media. The Indian press has been full of headlines like "Indian-American wins Pulitzer prize for book on cancer". What is so great about a history of cancer? Has he found a cure for cancer? I have. The entire physiology of an organism can be conceived of as a network of interlinked biological clocks. The disease process in cancer involves changes in biological clocks. In my laboratory research with rats I discovered a way to drastically modify biological clocks at a very fundamental level which provides a way to alter the disease process in cancer, as well as do other things such as drastic changes in perception. The physical world or a particular physical object is a collection of properties (color, size, shape, etc.) which are products of perception formed during phylogenesis (evolution of the species) and ontogenesis (conditioning during the life of a particular organism). Miraculous acts of Indian Yogis in altering both their own physiology (such as living on little or no food) and properties of the physical world (such as overcoming gravity or walking through walls as Deepak Chopra, M.D. described seeing Maharishi Mahesh Yogi do in one of his books) are a matter of altering biological clocks, such as drastically slowing down breathing rate."What else has this scientist done? I have written:"India"s government lends hundreds of billions of dollars to the U. S. government in exchange for worthless U. S. paper but seeks foreign investment and World Bank loans for projects in India, giving ownership and control of India to India"s enemies, despite the unlimited capital available to India by simply printing the money; see "How India"s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More" in my blog; as is described there, the United States has been applying my proposal about money by stealth and now also openly but Manmohan Singh refuses to do so because this bugger -- a CIA appointee -- does what serves the United States", not India"s, interests." Manmohan Singh told George W. Bush, with whom he castrated India, through the nuclear deal, both militarily and economically (see my blog), that Indians "deeply love" him. When Atal Behari Vajpayee was prime minister, he had once gone to Bombay and spoken to the stock exchange about applying my proposal about money to India"s economy, after which he had to abort his flight back to Delhi for fear his plane will crash. The murders of several politicians by air crash have been committed by CIA-RAW. A recent example was the murder of the Andhra Pradesh chief minister by air crash. In my blog ("Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S." which can be found by a Yahoo/Google search with the title) I have described how Indira Gandhi when prime minister in 1980 went to her kitchen with the then U. S. Vice President and former CIA Director, George Herbert Walker Bush, to arrange for the murder by air crash of her son Sanjay Gandhi who had taken to slapping her in the presence of others under my influence and the then CIA Director, Frank Carlucci, publicly claimed credit for that air crash via a letter that appeared in National Review. See IndianAirForcePilotsMurderDOTblogspotDOTcom . This is what you should know about CIA-RAW:-I am India"s expert in strategic defence, the father of India"s strategic program including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program and the world"s greatest scientist; my biography can be found in Marquis" Who"s Who in the World, 2012 and earlier editions and in my blog titled "Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.", which can be found by a Yahoo/Google search with the title, I have shown that all terrorism and insurgencies in the Indian subcontinent and in much of the rest of the world are sponsored by the C.I.A. Both Pakistan"s ISI and India"s RAW function as branches of the C.I.A. and participate in terrorism and insurgencies throughout the subcontinent, under direction of the C.I.A. The goal of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and partial occupation of Pakistan is eventual occupation and overt colonial rule over the subcontinent as a whole; India is already under covert CIA rule, through RAW.In the above blog I have described the continued control of Indian intelligence agencies by British and later American intelligence agencies after 1947. India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was split off from the Intelligence Bureau which had continued after 1947 to be loyal to the British. Later the Americans supplanted the British and RAW functions as a branch of the CIA against India. As part of this relationship, CIA-RAW exercises extensive control over the Indian media and, among its various activities, engages in sabotage of indigenous research and development to keep India dependent on other countries for defence and other equipment (the nuclear deal is just another CIA-RAW operation of that kind, though of a scope and with consequences far graver than any such operation till now).An example of this is a Bharat-Rakshak discussion thread about a black box installed by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in the indigenously developed Arjun tank that documented the sabotage of its engines during trials by the Army; such sabotage has been the basis of the Army"s rejection, on RAW"s prompting, of the Arjun tank in favour of imports (as I said in the above article, India‘s Army is the collaborator Army that helped the British rule India and, even after Independence, all its regiments and units have retained their former identities and regularly celebrate the anniversaries of their founding by the British). A CIA-RAW operative, who served as a moderator on Bharat-Rakshak and controlled the forum, locked away this discussion thread so that numerous posts that had appeared documenting the sabotage of the Arjun tank were covered up. The major metropolitan newspapers, on most of which CIA-RAW exercises extensive control, have made no mention of the black box -- which was like the flight data recorder in aircraft -- installed by DRDO in Arjun tanks and the shocking findings about the sabotage even though a report on this was provided to them by the Indo Asian News Service (IANS).There is across the board sabotage by various means by CIA-RAW to keep India down technologically, economically and militarily. RAW"s grip over India is comparable to the old KGB"s grip over the Soviet Union, with the difference that whereas the KGB worked for the good of the Soviet Union, except toward the end, RAW has always worked for its imperialist paymasters. The role of politicians in governing India is insignificant compared to that of CIA-RAW but RAW has no place in the public"s consciousness or in discussions of public affairs in India.An important point about the sabotage of Arjun is that people on the Arjun discussion thread on Bharat-Rakshak were aghast at the Army"s behavior and calling for Army brass being tried for treason, etc. but it will be a mistake to stop with the Army; it is RAW which is behind such sabotage not just of Arjun but of India"s interests, technological, economic and other, in a lot of areas. RAW has operatives in the Army at various levels but it is necessary to go to the root of the problem. RAW has to be destroyed and I have suggested that a brand new external intelligence agency be formed with the help of military intelligence (RAW is supposed to be India"s external intelligence agency but at least 90% of its activities are within India, against India).The destruction of RAW does not mean simply disbanding the agency and letting its employees continue their service to the CIA through other organisations, old or new, or in other roles. It is a mammoth agency with just the number of joint secretaries in the hundreds. It is India’s real ‘government’ and the politicians and civil servants largely obey its dictates. It puts the words in the mouths of cabinet ministers, etc., and determines most policies that are, erroneously, attributed to them. Any one, even a prime minister, whom CIA-RAW considers inconvenient is eliminated, if necessary by death, as I have said regarding the deaths of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and, later, Rajiv Gandhi in my article titled ‘How India‘s economy can grow 30% per year‘ in my blog. Over the past many years, I have shown how almost all terrorist incidents in India since 1983 have been carried out by outfits controlled by the CIA either directly or through intelligence agencies in the region, including India’s RAW. The Jain Commision of Inquiry, which went into Rajiv Gandhi’s death, acknowledged that the LTTE, which carried out his assassination, was created and controlled by RAW. It was an open secret that MQM, in Pakistan’s Sindh province, when it was known as a terrorist organization, was a creation of RAW. But the same is true of many terrorist outfits that operate in India.Another example of RAW’s multifarious activities, that I have described in press releases, articles and letters to the press since 1987, is its spreading heroin addiction and AIDS first in India’s Northeast then elsewhere to provide the United States with a population to use as guinea pigs for AIDS vaccine development, after the CIA was assigned the task of roping in a population for this purpose. I have described how Both Rajiv Gandhi (after being threatened with exposure of the Bofors and HDW kickbacks by Swedish and German media at the CIA‘s instigation) and Vajpayee cooperated in this. But terrorism, etc., are the least of its activities; I mentioned those only because the existence of terrorism is publicly known. Its sabotage of India’s research and development activities, of which the sabotage of the Arjun tank is just one example, is among the deadliest of its activities.The recent Lokpal movement is another illustration of RAW"s activities. I have written:---------------------START QUOTE---------------------Just as RAW-induced cricket fever sweeps India and does no good and a lot of harm to India, replacing real victory and supremacy over white countries, for example, with fake "victories" and "supremacy" over enemies, Hazare"s fake fast was entertainment -- the arrests and conflicts with government are meant to generate support and make/keep him a hero -- sponsored by CIA-RAW to keep India "Gandhian" -- and so poor, weak and enslaved -- due to the recent disclosure that M. K. Gandhi, a lifelong British agent, was a homosexual who wrote to the white man "How completely you have taken possession of my body. It is slavery with a vengeance". Nehru admitted to U.S. ambassador Galbraith that he was a lifelong British agent. In my press release dated May 31, 2011 I said "In a letter which appeared in Indian Express, Delhi, under the heading "The Organ and the Keys" two decades ago, I described how RAW was supporting the half dozen terrorist groups in Sri Lanka against one another, playing them like the keys of an organ, bringing them all under its control to produce whatever music it wanted. I have said Anna Hazare"s fast was sponsored by CIA-RAW (see my blog below) but now RAW is also supporting Baba Ram Dev and if it makes him prime minister, will keep the threat of bringing his office under Lok Pal and, with true or false charges of corruption against him, keep him under its control. The Intelligence Bureau, out of which RAW was created, did this for half a century under the British -- instigating Hindu-Muslim conflicts and partition of India, etc. -- and continues the tactic to this day. Other activities of CIA-RAW, the real ruler of India, are deadlier, such as sabotaging its defence and economy. ... In the same letter in Indian Express I pointed out that a New York Times report shortly before the 1991 General Elections and Rajiv Gandhi"s assassination said that Rajiv Gandhi told the foreign media in New Delhi that the Indian armed forces had "gone berserk in Kashmir. Human rights have been violated in Kashmir", that this comment of his was directed at U.S. lawmakers who control the CIA money which elects and keeps India"s prime ministers in office and that the Indian press had failed to report this comment, controlled as it is by the CIA. His assassination followed within days of the publication of this letter of mine." The entire so-called freedom struggle under M. K. Gandhi consisted of such fake struggle with the government managed by the Intelligence Bureau after the British set up the Indian National Congress through the Britisher A. O. Hume after they had killed over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857, depopulating entire regions so there were not enough men left to till the land: The Guardian (August 24, 2007, Internet, report by Randeep Ramesh): "India"s secret history: "A holocaust, one where millions disappeared...": Author says British reprisals involved the killing of 10 m, spread over 10 years:..."; see my blog. ------------------END QUOTE-------------------The nuclear deal and its various aspects -- replacing indigenous production of uranium and reactors with imports, the capping, rollback and elimination of India’s nuclear weapons program, media control and buying up politicians, scientists, etc. for this purpose -- is just the largest and deadliest of such activities, leaving out the 24-hour satellite surveillance and all the crimes, at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars per year for the past 34 years, against India’s greatest scientist, described in my article titled ‘How India‘s economy can grow 30% per year‘ in my blog. The point is that all the tens of thousands of RAW employees are guilty of the gravest treason and deserve the death penalty. So do all those -- politicians, civil servants and others -- who are willing collaborators of CIA-RAW.Satish Chandra--------------END OF POST---------------Satish Chandra

This puts a question mark on intentional plagiarizing, because an intentional plagiarizer would have changed the number to something other than 170.Satish Chandra ---------------END QUOTE-------------This is from my press release of July 11, 2011(see my blog):-"The violence Ram Dev and followers faced was not a billionth part of the violence I faced in a Harvard University seminar which I described in my letter dated July 27, 1982 to Indira Gandhi as prime minister as "the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India". In her reply dated July 29, 1982 she wrote "Dear Mr. Chandra, I have received your letter dated July 27, 1982 and am passing it on to my Principal Secretary to deal with it. Sincerely, Indira Gandhi". But I never heard from the Principal Secretary, P. C. Alexander and as I wrote in my blog "This bugger should be hung up by the heels and asked why". For six and a half months I lived in an M.I.T. library which used to be open 24-hours, sleeping on the chairs at night and going without food for up to three weeks at a time. When I felt sick due to starvation and went to a Cambridge hospital, they refused to admit me. When I went to another Cambridge hospital, the doctor, refusing to admit me said "This is not the Holiday Inn!". The entire Indian community at M.I.T. knew I was starving and being persecuted because my work had put me in a position of leadership in my field and the Indian government sent a minister/secretary to speak to them and reassure them. Later, when I was similarly starving in an M.I.T. dormitory where an Iranian let me in during summer vacation, 1980 -- my pulse was 49 when I once checked it -- and where an Indian graduate student said to his Indian dinner guests while I lay starving on a couch a few feet away "If you start talking like this, CIA peeche par jati hai (the CIA gets after you)", I was almost jailed by M.I.T. campus police when this Indian falsely accused me of stealing a handful of cereal. As I wrote in an article titled "The Soviet Coup" two decades ago, "Year after year after year, I had trouble buying enough flour -- the cheapest source of calories besides margarine -- to keep my weight from falling" to about half of my normal weight."This is from my press release dated April 26, 2011 (see my blog):-"The biggest scandal in India is C.I.A. rule over India through RAW and C.I.A.-RAW"s control of India"s prime ministers, politicians and media. The Indian press has been full of headlines like "Indian-American wins Pulitzer prize for book on cancer". What is so great about a history of cancer? Has he found a cure for cancer? I have. The entire physiology of an organism can be conceived of as a network of interlinked biological clocks. The disease process in cancer involves changes in biological clocks. In my laboratory research with rats I discovered a way to drastically modify biological clocks at a very fundamental level which provides a way to alter the disease process in cancer, as well as do other things such as drastic changes in perception. The physical world or a particular physical object is a collection of properties (color, size, shape, etc.) which are products of perception formed during phylogenesis (evolution of the species) and ontogenesis (conditioning during the life of a particular organism). Miraculous acts of Indian Yogis in altering both their own physiology (such as living on little or no food) and properties of the physical world (such as overcoming gravity or walking through walls as Deepak Chopra, M.D. described seeing Maharishi Mahesh Yogi do in one of his books) are a matter of altering biological clocks, such as drastically slowing down breathing rate."What else has this scientist done? I have written:"India"s government lends hundreds of billions of dollars to the U. S. government in exchange for worthless U. S. paper but seeks foreign investment and World Bank loans for projects in India, giving ownership and control of India to India"s enemies, despite the unlimited capital available to India by simply printing the money; see "How India"s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More" in my blog; as is described there, the United States has been applying my proposal about money by stealth and now also openly but Manmohan Singh refuses to do so because this bugger -- a CIA appointee -- does what serves the United States", not India"s, interests." Manmohan Singh told George W. Bush, with whom he castrated India, through the nuclear deal, both militarily and economically (see my blog), that Indians "deeply love" him. When Atal Behari Vajpayee was prime minister, he had once gone to Bombay and spoken to the stock exchange about applying my proposal about money to India"s economy, after which he had to abort his flight back to Delhi for fear his plane will crash. The murders of several politicians by air crash have been committed by CIA-RAW. A recent example was the murder of the Andhra Pradesh chief minister by air crash. In my blog ("Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S." which can be found by a Yahoo/Google search with the title) I have described how Indira Gandhi when prime minister in 1980 went to her kitchen with the then U. S. Vice President and former CIA Director, George Herbert Walker Bush, to arrange for the murder by air crash of her son Sanjay Gandhi who had taken to slapping her in the presence of others under my influence and the then CIA Director, Frank Carlucci, publicly claimed credit for that air crash via a letter that appeared in National Review. See IndianAirForcePilotsMurderDOTblogspotDOTcom . This is what you should know about CIA-RAW:-I am India"s expert in strategic defence, the father of India"s strategic program including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program and the world"s greatest scientist; my biography can be found in Marquis" Who"s Who in the World, 2012 and earlier editions and in my blog titled "Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.", which can be found by a Yahoo/Google search with the title, I have shown that all terrorism and insurgencies in the Indian subcontinent and in much of the rest of the world are sponsored by the C.I.A. Both Pakistan"s ISI and India"s RAW function as branches of the C.I.A. and participate in terrorism and insurgencies throughout the subcontinent, under direction of the C.I.A. The goal of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and partial occupation of Pakistan is eventual occupation and overt colonial rule over the subcontinent as a whole; India is already under covert CIA rule, through RAW.In the above blog I have described the continued control of Indian intelligence agencies by British and later American intelligence agencies after 1947. India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was split off from the Intelligence Bureau which had continued after 1947 to be loyal to the British. Later the Americans supplanted the British and RAW functions as a branch of the CIA against India. As part of this relationship, CIA-RAW exercises extensive control over the Indian media and, among its various activities, engages in sabotage of indigenous research and development to keep India dependent on other countries for defence and other equipment (the nuclear deal is just another CIA-RAW operation of that kind, though of a scope and with consequences far graver than any such operation till now).An example of this is a Bharat-Rakshak discussion thread about a black box installed by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in the indigenously developed Arjun tank that documented the sabotage of its engines during trials by the Army; such sabotage has been the basis of the Army"s rejection, on RAW"s prompting, of the Arjun tank in favour of imports (as I said in the above article, India‘s Army is the collaborator Army that helped the British rule India and, even after Independence, all its regiments and units have retained their former identities and regularly celebrate the anniversaries of their founding by the British). A CIA-RAW operative, who served as a moderator on Bharat-Rakshak and controlled the forum, locked away this discussion thread so that numerous posts that had appeared documenting the sabotage of the Arjun tank were covered up. The major metropolitan newspapers, on most of which CIA-RAW exercises extensive control, have made no mention of the black box -- which was like the flight data recorder in aircraft -- installed by DRDO in Arjun tanks and the shocking findings about the sabotage even though a report on this was provided to them by the Indo Asian News Service (IANS).There is across the board sabotage by various means by CIA-RAW to keep India down technologically, economically and militarily. RAW"s grip over India is comparable to the old KGB"s grip over the Soviet Union, with the difference that whereas the KGB worked for the good of the Soviet Union, except toward the end, RAW has always worked for its imperialist paymasters. The role of politicians in governing India is insignificant compared to that of CIA-RAW but RAW has no place in the public"s consciousness or in discussions of public affairs in India.An important point about the sabotage of Arjun is that people on the Arjun discussion thread on Bharat-Rakshak were aghast at the Army"s behavior and calling for Army brass being tried for treason, etc. but it will be a mistake to stop with the Army; it is RAW which is behind such sabotage not just of Arjun but of India"s interests, technological, economic and other, in a lot of areas. RAW has operatives in the Army at various levels but it is necessary to go to the root of the problem. RAW has to be destroyed and I have suggested that a brand new external intelligence agency be formed with the help of military intelligence (RAW is supposed to be India"s external intelligence agency but at least 90% of its activities are within India, against India).The destruction of RAW does not mean simply disbanding the agency and letting its employees continue their service to the CIA through other organisations, old or new, or in other roles. It is a mammoth agency with just the number of joint secretaries in the hundreds. It is India’s real ‘government’ and the politicians and civil servants largely obey its dictates. It puts the words in the mouths of cabinet ministers, etc., and determines most policies that are, erroneously, attributed to them. Any one, even a prime minister, whom CIA-RAW considers inconvenient is eliminated, if necessary by death, as I have said regarding the deaths of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and, later, Rajiv Gandhi in my article titled ‘How India‘s economy can grow 30% per year‘ in my blog. Over the past many years, I have shown how almost all terrorist incidents in India since 1983 have been carried out by outfits controlled by the CIA either directly or through intelligence agencies in the region, including India’s RAW. The Jain Commision of Inquiry, which went into Rajiv Gandhi’s death, acknowledged that the LTTE, which carried out his assassination, was created and controlled by RAW. It was an open secret that MQM, in Pakistan’s Sindh province, when it was known as a terrorist organization, was a creation of RAW. But the same is true of many terrorist outfits that operate in India.Another example of RAW’s multifarious activities, that I have described in press releases, articles and letters to the press since 1987, is its spreading heroin addiction and AIDS first in India’s Northeast then elsewhere to provide the United States with a population to use as guinea pigs for AIDS vaccine development, after the CIA was assigned the task of roping in a population for this purpose. I have described how Both Rajiv Gandhi (after being threatened with exposure of the Bofors and HDW kickbacks by Swedish and German media at the CIA‘s instigation) and Vajpayee cooperated in this. But terrorism, etc., are the least of its activities; I mentioned those only because the existence of terrorism is publicly known. Its sabotage of India’s research and development activities, of which the sabotage of the Arjun tank is just one example, is among the deadliest of its activities.The recent Lokpal movement is another illustration of RAW"s activities. I have written:---------------------START QUOTE---------------------Just as RAW-induced cricket fever sweeps India and does no good and a lot of harm to India, replacing real victory and supremacy over white countries, for example, with fake "victories" and "supremacy" over enemies, Hazare"s fake fast was entertainment -- the arrests and conflicts with government are meant to generate support and make/keep him a hero -- sponsored by CIA-RAW to keep India "Gandhian" -- and so poor, weak and enslaved -- due to the recent disclosure that M. K. Gandhi, a lifelong British agent, was a homosexual who wrote to the white man "How completely you have taken possession of my body. It is slavery with a vengeance". Nehru admitted to U.S. ambassador Galbraith that he was a lifelong British agent. In my press release dated May 31, 2011 I said "In a letter which appeared in Indian Express, Delhi, under the heading "The Organ and the Keys" two decades ago, I described how RAW was supporting the half dozen terrorist groups in Sri Lanka against one another, playing them like the keys of an organ, bringing them all under its control to produce whatever music it wanted. I have said Anna Hazare"s fast was sponsored by CIA-RAW (see my blog below) but now RAW is also supporting Baba Ram Dev and if it makes him prime minister, will keep the threat of bringing his office under Lok Pal and, with true or false charges of corruption against him, keep him under its control. The Intelligence Bureau, out of which RAW was created, did this for half a century under the British -- instigating Hindu-Muslim conflicts and partition of India, etc. -- and continues the tactic to this day. Other activities of CIA-RAW, the real ruler of India, are deadlier, such as sabotaging its defence and economy. ... In the same letter in Indian Express I pointed out that a New York Times report shortly before the 1991 General Elections and Rajiv Gandhi"s assassination said that Rajiv Gandhi told the foreign media in New Delhi that the Indian armed forces had "gone berserk in Kashmir. Human rights have been violated in Kashmir", that this comment of his was directed at U.S. lawmakers who control the CIA money which elects and keeps India"s prime ministers in office and that the Indian press had failed to report this comment, controlled as it is by the CIA. His assassination followed within days of the publication of this letter of mine." The entire so-called freedom struggle under M. K. Gandhi consisted of such fake struggle with the government managed by the Intelligence Bureau after the British set up the Indian National Congress through the Britisher A. O. Hume after they had killed over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857, depopulating entire regions so there were not enough men left to till the land: The Guardian (August 24, 2007, Internet, report by Randeep Ramesh): "India"s secret history: "A holocaust, one where millions disappeared...": Author says British reprisals involved the killing of 10 m, spread over 10 years:..."; see my blog. ------------------END QUOTE-------------------The nuclear deal and its various aspects -- replacing indigenous production of uranium and reactors with imports, the capping, rollback and elimination of India’s nuclear weapons program, media control and buying up politicians, scientists, etc. for this purpose -- is just the largest and deadliest of such activities, leaving out the 24-hour satellite surveillance and all the crimes, at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars per year for the past 34 years, against India’s greatest scientist, described in my article titled ‘How India‘s economy can grow 30% per year‘ in my blog. The point is that all the tens of thousands of RAW employees are guilty of the gravest treason and deserve the death penalty. So do all those -- politicians, civil servants and others -- who are willing collaborators of CIA-RAW.Satish Chandra--------------END OF POST---------------Satish Chandra

Beijing should revoke the diplomatic status of this irresponsible and morally bankrupt "diplomat" named S Balachandran. His intention, by saying he was "mishandled" was a deliberate selectve word for the press after his theatric "collapse". It was all for the international press"s consumption. He was playng to gallery to make China look bad. Kick him out of Beijing or make him persona non grata if he continues to be in China!
