(SP).a party often accused of unleashing "goondaraj",every time it comes to power in UP Remember the manner in which he threw out notorious western UP gangster DP Yadav from the party on the eve of the2012 Assembly elections In his four-and-a-half year regime as chief minister Akhilesh has frittered away substantial amounts of his goodwill with the urban middle class He is seen to be at helm of the country’s largest state without any clear sense of direction This is the precise reason why party president Mulayam Singh Yadav has resorted to his methodology of mobilising support on caste/communal lines Ironically Ghazipur and neighbouring Azamgarh – known as communist bastions in the not too distant past – would turn into a battle-field of gangsters irrespective of their affiliation with political parties Like Sarjoo Pandey in the nineties senior leaders cutting across the party lines would describe their criminals as revolutionaries Ghazipur is once again weaving a

after an electronic attack which affected 32000 computersthe term cyber warfare finally gained legitimacy this week A newly published NATO manual recognised it as a formal mode of hostility and sought to place it in the legal framework that conditions international conflict The Tallinn Manual: International Law Applicable to Cyber Warfare is not an official document It reflects the opinions of 20 researchers and practitioners in international lawbut it was commissioned by NATO through its Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Estonia It is the beginning of a deliberative process which should eventually produce an electronic version of the Geneva Conventions Publishing the manual from Estonia is extremely appropriatesince it has been the target of massive electronic attacks In the spring of 2007a controversy had broken out with Moscow over a World War II commemorative statue called the Bronze Soldier of Tallinn Moscow saw itself as the liberator of the city The city did not readily recall the alleged liberation and the issue boiled over into a riot called Bronze Nightwhich gained international attention In retaliationRussia launched cyber attacks crippling Estonian

For a decadeelectronic aggression has been an established way for nations to get their dirty work done Its incidence is rising as nations become more competitive The current attack on South Korea is the third major incident there Earlier attacksin 2009 and 2011were blamed on North Korea Even the present attack may be attributed to it eventually Government officials who revealed that the attacks originated from a Chinese IP address have been careful to insist that the perpetrators have not been identified Other significant attacks in recent times have included allegedly Chinese attempts to

governments and executed by trained workers within the government and the military and by the contractors who sell services to commercial spammers Without definitionit could not be retrofitted into the rubric of war between nations The Tallinn Manual breaks new ground by focusing on effect rather than agency It does not matter if an enemy drops a bomb on a dam a strategy used by the UK to cripple the industries of the Ruhr in World War II or hacks into its control systems to open the sluice gates If civilians are swept away in the resulting flood in the river valleyit is a crime either way But the manual has only started a conversation At the mostit can be presumed to have laid down the ground-rules for NATO to engage in cyber warfare And high timesince NATO appears to have gone beyond cyber defence The Stuxnet wormwhich slowed down Irans fuel enrichment programme by damaging centrifugeswas quite obviously of Western provenance Many issues will remain unresolved For

desperately for resources and marketsis the possibility of economic harm sufficient provocation In that caseis snooping on economically sensitive information sufficient provocation for forceful retaliation Which offers more credible provocationpassive snooping or active interventionsuch as putting down a banking networkan event that South Korea has seen this week While Tallinn has tried to bring cyber attacks within the format of conventional warfarecertain elements resemble irregular conflict The distinction between combatant and civilian is problematicsince the same person may be both Almost all the people who develop and rent out software and botnets for intrusion and attacks are civilians and may be resident in third countries Are they legitimate military targets Answers to these questions have been overdue for a decade Nowthe publication of the Tallinn Manual marks the beginning of a process of definition It has applied the basic principles of the law of war to electronic

Justice Manjula Chellur along with her husband Dr CN Gupta (Express Photo by Amit Chakravarty/Files) Top News The Bombay Bar Association Monday passed a resolution “condemning the action of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur” for withdrawing a bunch of noise pollution matters from a bench headed by Justice A S Oka and assigning it to another bench The move made after allegations by the government of the judge harbouring “serious bias” against the state machinery was reversed on Monday Last Thursday the government had filed an application seeking transfer of all noise pollution matters from a bench headed by Justice Oka The judge had expressed “prima facie” opinion against the state’s view on doing away with silence zones Monday’s resolution states that the Bar Association “strongly condemns and deprecates the action of the Chief Justice in withdrawing a part heard matter from a Judge of this Court on the reckless baseless and unwanted allegation of bias against the Judge concerned” The Chief Justice had referred two of the matters related to noise pollution to a three-judge bench headed by Justice Oka and comprising Justice Anoop Mohta and Justice Riyaz Chagla The Association said that this too was not warranted and has “urged the honourable Chief Justice to refer them to the division bench of Justice Oka” states the resolution Several lawyers had also recently questioned the speedy manner in which the noise pollution matters were transferred by the Chief Justice based on the government’s allegations Chief Justice Manjula Chellur took over the Bombay High Court a year ago after serving as the Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court In March she had faced criticism when she questioned the dress code of journalists while hearing a matter relating to doctors’ strike The Bombay Bar Association meanwhile has also “strongly condemned the conduct of the Advocate General in making the application for recusal of the bench headed by Justice Oka” The resolution states that such an application was made on totally untenable and unwarranted grounds and attempted to interfere with the administration of justice and attacked the independence of judiciary The managing committee of the Advocates Association of Western India (AAWI) had also held a meeting on Saturday “In the instant case the litigant being the state government it should have shown restraint and should not have stooped to alleged bias against a Judge like Justice A S Oka who has been above board and has dedicated himself to the cause of justice for many years” the secretary of AAWI Viresh Purwant had said This is one of the rare instances where lawyer associations have come out in support of a Judge while deprecating the state government’s stand of alleging
