Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the alleged mastermind of 2008 Mumbai terror blasts has been detained on the orders of the Home Ministry of Pakistan’s Punjab province.

“It was after pressure from the US authorities, Pakistani government has decided to keep Lakhvi under arrest. ” sources said.

The judicial decision to release Lakhvi was severely criticized by both India and the US. As a response to the release order, Indian External Affairs Ministry had summoned Abdul Basit, Pakistan`s High Commissioner to India and sought an explanation for the terrorist’s release. US too had put pressure on the Pakistani Government to keep Lakhvi under arrest.

Earlier, Lakhvi’s appeal against his third detention order was accepted by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday, ordering his immediate release. Lakhvi was granted bail in both cases against him, the Mumbai blasts case and the six-year-old case pertaining to the kidnapping of an Afghan national, Dwan, the Pakistani news agency reported.

On March 2, the IHC directed the Pakistan government not to register any new case against Lakhvi without informing the court.

A Different Take on Masculinity: Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota

Abhimanyu and Radhika are childhood friends. She has seen him grow from pain to pain without feeling it.

Once Salman Khans heroine in “Maine Pyar Kiya”, Bhagyashree’s son Abhimanyu is now out to make his quirky debut as a boy-man who cant feel any physical pain.

The trailer of his first film “Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota” has him bleeding through his head and nose as he walks down the street talking to us about the rare congenital disease that precludes pain.

The idea of not feeling any physical pain could serve as a decent metaphor for the desensitised times that we live in. But then I am not sure Vasan Bala, who has served as an assistant on dark films like “The Lunchbox” and “Raman Raghav”, wants us to assess his film as anything but what it is:a film about a guy who can’t feel any pain.

The protagonist’s ambition, perhaps echoing the modest aspirations of the film’s debutant hero, are severely restricted. So I suspect, is the appeal of this whimsical piece of cinema which also stars the very watchable Radhika Madan.
