December 18, 2016: Bangladesh’s Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal assured that India has the full support of Bangladesh on the issue of tackling terror. He said that Pakistan should be isolated for supporting terror acts and harboring terrorists.

The PTI report stated that the holdup in the Teesta water sharing treaty with India has led to anti-India passions in Bangladesh due to fundamentalist organizations like Jamat and the opposition parties.

“Pakistan has always harbored and supported terrorists. We feel those who support terrorism should be discouraged and isolated. We should do everything to discourage and condemn such attacks. Such kind of terror attacks should not be carried out against any country,” Kamal told PTI in an interview.

He said that India is one of the most affected countries of cross-border terrorism and Bangladesh shares the pain and agony of India and standby by it in its fight against terrorism.

India pulled out of SAARC Summit after the high tension with Pakistan after 18 jawans were killed in the Uri terror attack. Afghanistan, Bhutan, and Bangladesh also pulled out of the summit in Islamabad in November, indirectly blaming Pakistan for creating an unhealthy environment for the summit that resulted in its collapse.

Kamal said that the relation between the two countries does not depend on the single Teesta water sharing treaty. However, he hopes that the pact will be a reality in future.

“Any treaty is done on the basis of mutual interests of both the countries. A treaty cannot be signed by neglecting the interests of a country which is party to it. We feel that Teesta treaty will happen in future. The way the bilateral relations are moving forward, we are hopeful that Teesta treaty will happen sooner or later,” he says.

“The bilateral relationship won’t depend on this treaty. It is true that Bangladesh is facing some problems. Water is essential for both the countries,” he says.

Last year when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Bangladesh and signed LBA, it strengthened the bilateral relationship.

Kamal said that Bangladesh and India have been working together in combating terrorism. Both the countries have been sharing information and intelligence. Bangladesh has been taking stern action on whatever information Indian intelligence agencies has provided them. NIA and Bangladesh agencies are working together. The transit point used by Pakistan to smuggle fake notes in India has been sealed and tapped by Bangladeshi police and intelligence agencies.

Kamal remained noncommittal on opening the border for the Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar who have crossed the border to flee the violence. He said that that they cannot open their borders every time they are attacked. An international opinion is required against this continuous genocide.

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
