provides safe havens to terrorists President Donald Trump last week hit out at Pakistan for providing safe havens to terror groups that kill American soldiers in Afghanistan He also warned Pakistan that it has "much to lose" by harbouring terrorists India’s ambassador to the US Navtej Sarna said on terrorism India and the US have a strategic convergence in a host of areas including in its fight against terrorism "We welcome the new Afghan policy because we share the concerns and the objectives that the safe havens that have been given to terrorists in Pakistan The cross-border operations that are carried out from there concern us as much they are for the people of Afghanistan Therefore we share the policies announced by the Trump Administration which we welcome" Sarna said Representational image IBN live Addressing the Hawaii-based East West Center a top American think-tank Sarna said on terrorism there is a very strong joint statement between India and the US issued during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit in June He also said Pakistan should not be using its territory or the territory under its control for fomenting terrorism under its control "There is recognition of the fact that connectivity projects while they’re welcome they have to go by certain basic rules and regulations of transparency of respecting territorial integrity and sovereignty and ensuring that in the process are not trampling the political and economic rights of the countries that are involved" Sarna said He also met Tulsi Gabbard the first ever Hindu elected to the US House of Representative in 2013 is the three-term Democratic Congresswoman "There is cooperation in maritime security PACOM (Pacific Command) here is playing an important role India today is doing more

partnership between India and the US was very much evident during the visit of Prime Minister Modi and his discussions with Trump he said adding that this should not be seen through the prism of any third country "I think in terms of facing the challenges whether there be of global terrorism whether it be of issues of maritime security whether that be the freedom of the seas and navigation and connectivity issues these are all issues which democracies have to handle and it becomes much easier to handle them together" he was quoted as saying by the Hawaii Radio Responding to a question he refuted reports that the Indo-US relationship is to counterweight China "Well you know I’m not very sure whether it is useful to see these relations to the prism of any other relationship I think the India-US relationship has a strong logic of its own Its relationship between the world’s largest and the world’s oldest democracies It is a relationship based on convergence of fundamental values freedom of individual liberties" he said "Of course there is a very strong people-to-people link now that we have a very successful and increasingly powerful diaspora of about three million people of Indian-origin in the US So I would rather take this relationship on its on its own basis and not look at it from the prism of any third country" Sarna said in response to a question According to the envoy India has a very broad-based relationship with China which has multilateral aspects and also strong economic and investment "Then we have recently resolved an issue (Dokalam standoff) at the border through diplomatic channels BRICS (Brazil Russia India China and South Africa) is something which faces many of the challenges of the world And it gives a platform for major emerging economies to come together and to implement these issues" he said New Delhi:Former RJD MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav has been given ‘Y’ category security over a week after former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi was accorded the top ‘Z-plus’ security cover by the Centre The move comes months ahead of polls in the state The BJP-led NDA had been wooing Pappu Yadav who is an influential leader of his community in the Purnea-Madhepura belt Pappu Yadav IBNLive Reacting sharply to the security cover to its rivals Janta Dal United saw a "conspiracy" in it and accused the Centre of "direct interference" into the affairs of a state In a letter to the Chief Secretary of Bihar the Union Home Ministry said that the state government was requested to categorise Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav as ‘Y’ (threat) category protectee in view of "threat perceived to him from political rivals criminal the CPI (Maoist) and also in view of the upcoming Assembly elections in Bihar" Yadav a Lok Sabha MP after being expelled by the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) for six years for anti-party activities in May this year launched a new political outfit called Jan Kranti Adhikar Morcha The Union Home Ministry has in its communique said that the matter regarding security arrangements of Pappu Yadav has again been examined in the ministry in consultation with the Central Security Agencies "As per their report in view of threat perceived to Pappu Yadav from political rivals criminal and the CPI (Maoist) and also in view of the upcoming Assembly elections in Bihar the state government may categorise him as a Y (threat) category protectee and provide him full component of Y category security "Government of Bihar is therefore requested to categorise Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav as a Y (threat) category protectee and provide him full component of Y category security cover immediately in order to avoid any untoward incident" the Home Ministry said in its missive on July 27 Reacting sharply to it JD-U general secretary K C Tyagi said"After Manjhi was give Z plus security it is now turn of Pappu Yadav to get Y category security How can the Centre decide all this without involving the state "Other rebel leaders from JDU and RJD have also been provided similar security by the Centre earlier This is some sort of a conspiracy against the state government I strongly condemn the security given to Pappu Yadav" Tyagi said More Manjhi who was given Z plus security over a week back was removed as the Bihar Chief Minister early this year and had later floated his own political party called the Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) Manjhi later forged an alliance with the NDA in principle but the seat sharing between the two is expected to be decided at a later stage The 243-seat

heights of enlightenment” the actor said For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Updated: May 1 2014 3:43 pm Google India Managing Director Rajan Anandan Related News In this Idea Exchange moderated by Deputy Editor Subhomoy Bhattacharjee Google India Managing Director Rajan Anandan talks about the impact of the Internet on urban voters data requests the company gets from the government and Google’s mission of ‘digitising’ India SUBHOMOY BHATTACHARJEE: There is a lot of buzz around social media in these elections and you are also the chairman of the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) What was the standard you used to say that India has 213 million Internet users How credible is that number IAMAI together with IMRB does annual research among thousands of respondents in urban metro and rural areas That’s how we got the 213 million number It’s a very robust number which is validated through carrier data as well as figures provided by companies such as ours The quarterly financial reports of telecom companies report the number of active mobile Internet users they have So if we add up the numbers of the top five telcos it’s about a 150-160 million active mobile Internet users And we know from our own data that there are over 200 million users What’s interesting is that it took 10 years for India to go from 10 million Internet users to a 100 million but three years to go from 100 million to 200 million Today we are adding about 4 million new users a month So by end of this year India would have 250 million users And by the end of next year even at the current growth rate we should have over 300 million So for an Internet company India is important and strategic Regardless of where an Internet company is launched today India very quickly becomes a large user base for it So Sequoia India invested in Truecaller a Scandinavian start-up This is the first time that it has ever happened And the reason is that though Truecaller is a global platform India is its largest user base India is one of the few markets in the world where we are seeing Web 10 and Web 20 happening together In developed Internet markets like the US or UK and even China the Web had two distinct phases There was a Web 10 which was Yahoo Amazon Google — all of which were launched in the ’90s Web 20 is a social mobile local and video phenomenon — YouTube smartphones all those came up in the late 2000s In India all of that is at the same time Everything that took about 20 years to happen in the west in India it is going to happen in the next five to seven years This year the number of smartphone users in India will double from 70 million to 130-140 million So if you think about the current election our view based on some research we did four-five months ago is that urban India is going to be significantly influenced by the Internet Forty per cent of registered voters in urban India are on the Internet And our research said that 42 per cent at that time were undecided Whether it will have an impact or not we will know after the elections but the activity levels are quiet stunning Sunil Jain: At one time Google was talking of speaking to the Election Commission about putting a lot of data out there and then some people said it would compromise security and the whole thing just collapsed So what exactly happened We had partnered with the Election Commission to take existing public data and make it much more easily accessible For example if you put your voter registration number we can tell you where your nearest polling booth is So that was the partnership we had announced and then as you said there were multiple people who felt that it would compromise security so we didn’t do that It was unfortunate because it would have been a very valuable service for the voters Sunil Jain: Edward Snowden has accused Google of giving the US government access to your data I want your comments on that Also has Google come out with a new policy to take on the possibility of someone snooping on our emails First we take our users’ data security very seriously No government can have access to the data and we have never given backdoor access to the US government or any government in the world Larry Page our CEO has been very clear about this Secondly when governments do request data we have a well-documented process of how we review that data and where it merits the case we do release the data The data that we release to the government is published on Google’s transparency report So you can go online and it will tell you exactly how many requests we got in every country and what we complied to So this whole idea that there is a backdoor to Google and Google is being paid to give information to the US government is absolutely incorrect In response to your second question well when you sign up for any Google service there is a set of service requirements where you can say ‘Look I don’t want to do this or that’ etc But what we have found is that a lot of people do not read the fine print So we are trying to make it even clearer through notifications Anant Goenka: A Google researcher recently said that 21 or 25 major news organisations around the world have a cyber security risk Are governments putting pressure on services like Google or Yahoo to get data out In the Google transparency report you’ll find a large number of requests from specific governments around the world including India US is number one and India is number two Over the last three to four years the number of requests has been increasing every year That is explainable since we were 30 million users four years ago and now we are 200 million So as more and more people get online more and more reasons the governments might have So in terms of whether governments are sending more requests to Google for data the answer is yes How we deal with that is very important We have a process to review every single data request If the data request has merit say it violates the local law or our service agreement then we would comply But if it doesn’t then we wouldn’t So at times there is friction between Google and specific governments because there is request for data which we won’t provide Sunil Jain: If the government asks you for my mail can you give it to them If there is a court order a valid one Say there is a specific request from any user or government to take content down from YouTube If the content violates local law or we get a court order we will take it down If it violates our terms of service we will take it down Child pornography — we will take it down Sunil Jain: If the government wants will you take it down It’s not if the government wants it has to be a court order Ritu Sarin: What kind of data does India ask Google for and who sends the request from the government The requests relate to all kinds of data We get requests from local police authorities from the defence department from the home ministry and across all different government agencies — state-level local-level central-level Ritu Sarin: When you say court order do you mean the order of the home secretary which is what interception laws in India want It has to be a valid court order Courts do give us orders sometimes to take content down It’s not easy to do Some local government can’t wake up someday and say they want to do something They have to give us a court order Ritu Sarin: So if I have a lot of negative writing about me on Google and I make a request to you to remove it what would you do You send us a request and we will review it If the content violates our terms of service or the local law we’ll take it down If it doesn’t we will let you know then you have the last option — which is to get a court order Ritu Sarin: What about personal slander It has to be proven We get a lot of requests of defamation for satire Satire doesn’t violate local laws Rishi Raj: Users access Internet through telecom operators Some operators have started talking about revenue-sharing which has not been taken seriously at the regulatory level What’s your view on that and are you prepared for revenue sharing It is important to keep in mind the numbers Telecom in India is a $40 billion industry E-commerce in India is a $25 billion industry and the digital advertising industry search display and online classifieds is $800 million So the money is still clearly in voice and data The more consumers use smartphones the more bandwidth that they have the more time they spend on the Internet the more they consume We are using Google Fiber to test the limit — can households really consume 100 mbps Yes if you give it to them So as consumers use more data the carriers that provide the infrastructure to give that sort of data will be able to charge for it I live in Chanakyapuri and I pay several thousand rupees to get broadband and I don’t get broadband Will I pay Rs 10000 to really get 10 mbps You bet so give it to me Thus telecom industry should tap into this appetite for data consumption Also we should separate India from the rest of the world because in India there is a massive shortage of bandwidth There are so many consumers who would like to consume broadband but cannot because there is a shortage Anant Goenka: How active are you in funding think-tanks policy initiatives or other offline activities There are different kinds of Internet markets — the nascent ones where Google’s mission is to accelerate the development of the Internet ecosystem the well-developed ones and those which do not have progressive policies A lot of markets like India and Brazil are not very developed Despite 200 million Internet users only 20 per cent of the country’s population is online Internet cannot transform India if only 20 per cent of the population has access to online services so you will see us doing a lot of work with institutions NGOs and the government in digitising India Anant Goenka: You are also getting into the content space and are beyond a search engine now We are not in the content business We are clear we don’t want to be in it We are doing a huge amount of work to drive adoption of our products Many companies do not know how to set up Hangouts so we help them understand and set it up Once you set it up for companies they start using it frequently Some political parties are very good at doing Hangouts SUBHOMOY BHATTACHARJEE: In India a lot of what we see is Google-generated content Specially in this election a lot of debate is happening on Google products like YouTube After the election some parties would be sensitive about what information or content is circulating on Google Between the last election and this one the number of Internet users has gone up We have gone from having very few urban registered voters on the Internet to having half of them on the Internet We have gone from having no social networks — last election Facebook had 10 million users in this election it has almost 100 million We have gone from a non-existent YouTube to 60 million Indians on YouTube Twitter not around to Twitter being around So more than what Google or Facebook has done urban India is now on the Internet and for various reasons they seem to be interested both in consuming and participating and having points of view This election the Internet will impact urban India Next election it will not be urban India it will be India 2018 will be India 2018 will be 600-700 million Internet users half of them on broadband networks and 300-400 million smartphone users The content on the Internet is generated by users So coming back to your question let’s take getting consumers online Most Internet users are coming on through mobile devices that cost less than Rs 6000-7000 — these did not exist three years ago So what we had to ensure is low-cost Android devices that will allow users to get online India has the lowest cost of handsets in the world We also doubled the number of Indian women on the Internet We launched a new initiative called ‘Helping women get online’ We have aggregated content from women-oriented content partners We are also getting people who are already online to stay online We started the online shopping festival called ‘Cyber Monday’ Why Because only 20 million of the 200 million ever buy online China has 550 million users 250 million buy online Now we are working on how to get the non-video local language content Only 70 out of the top 1000 newspapers are online Very few of the leading non-English magazines are online Archna Shukla: So this is all business development isn’t it No it’s market development there is no revenue involved in any of this But if you get half-a-billion Indians online there will be monetisation My point is that India needs to get the next 300 million people on the Internet And the question for a company like Google is ‘What are we doing to accelerate that’ as opposed to ‘Can we come up with a new widget’ Our widget is that we have Android and we have local area partners who make it at Rs 6000-7000 How do we get partners to make Android at Rs 3000-4000 It’s quite unfortunate that only 30 per cent of Internet users in India are women Kuwait has more percentage of women online Isn’t that interesting — the Middle East has more women on percentage basis who are online than India Anushree Bhattacharyya: MotoG and MotoX have been retailed by Flipkart exclusively At the same time some companies like Canon are telling consumers not to buy products online What are your views on that Also after Flipkart and Myntra what is the next stage of e-commerce in India In 2012 12 million users bought non-travel products online In 2013 there were 20 million such users buying electronics apparel baby products etc For any brand to not be online is a missed opportunity MotoG had the most successful launch of any smartphone ever that too on one e-commerce site only About where e-commerce will go we are still in the first half day of the Test match If you want to know where e-commerce will go in the next six to seven years just look at China Chinese e-commerce industry has now crossed $300 billion it is bigger than the e-commerce industry in the US Taobao when it goes public will be more valuable than Amazon Taobao makes twice as much revenue as Amazon and is three times as big as eBay And TaoBao is only in China Ashish sinha: When will Google Glass and your other products developed in the US come to India For Google Glass to work you need bandwidth The phone has to work the Internet connection on the phone has to work and then maybe Glass will work So we will launch our products in India at the right time But it’s important to keep in mind that our mission is to get half a billion Indians on the Internet Let’s take an example Small businesses that are online grow 50 per cent faster than small businesses that are offline India today has 47 million small businesses; only 400000 of them are online today We helped 300000 of them get online by giving them a free website free domain name free hosting etc So imagine what will happen to the Indian economy if we get 10 million businesses online That is more important than a thousand Indians running around with Google Glass We are focussed on making the Internet valuable to the society Take the NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning) project of the HRD ministry All IIT classes

this had led to the ‘hacking’ of the Wikipedia page of Jamshedpur FC terming the ISL newbies as ‘Curry Leaves of Kerala Blasters’ In an apparent act of retaliation from Jamshedpur supporters the Wikipedia page of Kerala Blasters was also hacked and the Kochi-based side was described as ‘old age home’ in a reference to the recent signings of a few above 30-year-old players The comments at the Wikipedia pages of both the teams have since been removed and the original pages restored Asked if he knew about this incident Kerala Blasters CEO Varun Tripuraneni said “I have no idea of anything of
