Indian Newspapers recent income has been mostly based on selling news about Muhammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lad Indian Government claims to be a trained terrorist of ISI.
But what kind of news comes to mind? One would think they came with some further information about him to prove his crime. Well, the news that has been coming these days is more of a television soap-kind.
Abhishek Sharan of Hindustan Times reported this mind-blowing piece of news.
‘Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured after the recent Mumbai attacks, who recently had expressed his desire for non-veg food and Big B’s movies is being served veg food from prison’s canteen.
‘Kasab is fed by a canteen, not far from his solitary cell inside the heavily-guarded lock-up.
‘This is the diet chart of Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab (21), the lone survivor of the terrorist squad that struck Mumbai on November 26. He is lodged at one of Mumbai Crime Branch’s lock-ups.
7.30 am: Light breakfast — two pavs, two vadas, a cup of black lemon tea.
11.30 am: Lunch — vegetarian thali comprising two chapatis, two or three cups of rice, dal, a curry, a dry vegetable preparation, papad, sliced onions, salt.
3 pm: A cup of black lemon tea.
7.30 pm: Dinner, identical to lunch.
‘Girish (name changed), a canteen employee, said Kasab was never allowed any non-vegetarian food. “He is doing fine with this,” he said.
‘Girish said the canteen is paid a “measly Rs 25” for each meal of Kasab’s.
‘The canteen employees said Kasab looks forward to his twice-daily cups of tea. “He takes only black lemon tea, which has herbal qualities,” Girish said…’
Another similar report, published in The Telegraph-India, titled ‘Kasab giggles at AK-47‘ seems to be presenting the next episode of the serial. Below is an excerpt:
‘Show him the gun he used to kill a police officer, and Ajmal Kasab doesn’t even try to look grim.
‘In fact, the “baby-faced assassin” can’t stop laughing in court.
‘The Pakistani gunman, the only one taken alive during the November 26 attacks, continued to smile away as a police officer told the special court how Kasab shot assistant sub-inspector Tukaram Oomble and identified the AK-47 he had used.
‘When the assault rifle was shown to him, Kasab giggled. Then he looked at the media box to his left with a wide grin.
‘Special court judge M.L. Tahilyani, who looked annoyed, asked Kasab to behave. “Yeh serious baat hain. Koi natak nahi ho raha hain yahan (This is a serious affair. No drama is being staged here),” the judge said.
‘It wasn’t the first time that the judge had rebuked Kasab, who has been smiling away in court from the day the trial began in the heavily fortified Arthur Road jail…’
Plus another excellent piece of news from Hindustan Times about Kasab’s obsession with John Abraham.
I guess India has solved all its other problems…
