    by the way I am expecting that some of statements will change, once the sailors reach India, a new story might be propagated....which will essentially be defaming Pak Navy, which did a wonderful job

    Mr. Burney and the activists/lawyers & PN did their job, the families will be reunited with their loved ones. That's all that matters in the end, with God as the witness.


    their media is a hostile one; but that's no new news. Action speaks for itself.

    Freed Indian sailors reach Delhi
    'Pakistan Times' Wire Service
    NEW DELHI: Anxious parents, wives and children holding posters that said "Thank You, Burney Uncle" waited for hours at the Delhi Airport this morning. This wait, so different than the agonising 10 months while their men were hostages for Somali pirates.

    Ending a 10-month-long ordeal, six Indian sailors, who were part of the 22-member crew MV Suez vessel that was recently freed by Somali pirates, reached Delhi from Karachi on Friday. They reached the national capital via a Dubai-Delhi flight. They had reached Karachi yesterday onboard the Pakistani naval ship PNS Zulfiqar. Besides six Indians, the 22-member crew included four Pakistanis, one Sri Lankan and 11 Egyptians.

    External Affairs Minister SM Krishna has thanked Pakistan for the help provided to ensure safety of the Indian sailors. Relived that the ordeal has ended of the sailors, Krishna said that India appreciates timely help extended to sailors by the Pakistan Navy.

    Somali pirates released the crew of the Egyptian-owned ship, who were held for about 10 months, after a ransom of USD 2.1 million was reportedly paid. Pakistani Human Rights activist Ansar Burney played a key role in the negotiations with the pirates for releasing the crew members. The posters that thanked him at the Delhi Airport Friday were a tiny manifestation of what he means to the families of the Indian sailors. However, within hours of being declared free, the Suez was attacked again by pirates.

    Pakistan deputed a warship - the PNS Babur - to escort the Suez to safer waters. India has been accused of ignoring pleas for help, both from the crew and from the family. Sailors and their families say the Indian government ignored cries for help. After criticism, India deputed the INS Godavari to pull up along the Suez. At this point, India claims, aggressive manouevres by the Pakistani warship led to it grazing the Godavari. Strong statements were issued by both countries.

    The Suez ran into technical trouble while it was being escorted to Salalah in Oman. The 22 crew members of the Suez were then transferred to the PNS Babur. They finally reached Karachi on the PNS Zulfiqar. As a gesture of goodwill, the owners of MV Suez, Red Sea Navigation, had borne the expenses for repatriating the sailors to India.

    It is idiotic and foolish to negotiate with terrorists or pirates as the case maybe. We have done it in the past when we negotiated for the release Rubia Sayeed and IA flight 814. The ill effects of these idiotic misadventures by us cost the lives of hundreds of Indians. I sincerely hope the GOI has learned its lessons. Maybe these are the first lot of Pakistanis to be captured by Somali pirates and so we see this ecstatic rejoicing. What is the rejoicing all about? Well it is about a nation giving in to the demands of pirates. I sincerely hope that India never falls for this cr@p. One out of every five international commercial merchant ship has India sailors abroad. We simply cant afford this submission to the pirate's will.

    Back home at last, Suez sailor says he owes his life to Pak


    Sachin Pawshe claims the Indian government did nothing for its six citizens on board the ship, but is all praise for the Pakistani navy and human rights activist Ansar Burney who helped secure their release

    The irony must not be missed. The Indian government, which was recently praised by Pakistani sailors rescued from Somalian pirates for taking good care of them, is being criticised by Indian sailors across the border.

    Sachin Pawshe, who was aboard the MV Suez, an Egyptian merchant vessel that was also hijacked by Somalian pirates in August last year, was part of the 22-member crew that was rescued by the Pakistani Navy earlier this month and brought to Karachi on June 23.

    While full of praises for the Pakistani Navy, and former Pakistani Human Rights Minister Ansar Burney, Pawshe says the Indian government has done little to help them.


    Pawshe, who left home last year to work as an oiler on the Suez and returned to his Kalyan (E) home on Friday evening, says, “We, as Indians, keep saying random things about Pakistan. But it was their Navy and a gentleman from Pakistan who ensured our safety and release.

    The Indian government did nothing to ensure that six of its citizens were brought back home.”

    Pawshe said after the ship was hijacked by the pirates, the crew was kept in pathetic conditions.

    “We were given very little food. They gave us boiled rice, potatoes and pasta once in a while to eat. We were often starved,” narrated Pawshe.

    He added that the pirates would often strip them and beat them.

    They would often lose their tempers and thrash us. At times, when negotiations did not go their way, they would simply pick up a few of us and start punishing and kicking. We had no option but to silently endure the inhuman treatment,” added Pawshe who has been in the shipping profession for the past three years.

    All praises for Pakistan, he said, “They rescued us and treated us really well. In fact, the clothes that I am wearing right now were given by the Pakistanis. I owe my life to them.”

    On his return, Pawshe cut a cake saying that from now on he would celebrate his birthday on June 24. “I got a fresh lease of life on this day and this would be my birthday from now on,” he said.

    Pawshe plans to get back to his profession in the next couple of months. “After having been through so much, I am not scared of anything anymore. Moreover, I am going to be promoted to a junior engineer in a couple of months,” he said. His mother, Sumitra Pawshe, an ex-corporator from Kalyan, was however not too pleased with his decision.

    The pirates released the MV Suez and the crew aboard after a $2.1 million ransom was paid to them by a Pakistani organisation, the Ansar Burney Trust, named after the known human rights activist and former minister.

    However, it was not an easy journey back home for the sailors as they were nearly hijacked by another group of pirates on their way out of the troubled waters.

    To add to it, they had to be shifted to Pakistan Navy’s vessel PNS Babur as they had to abandon MV Suez after the fuel ran out and a tug boat failed to reach them due to bad weather.

    The ship ran out of fuel in a stormy weather when it was on its way to the Omani port of Salalah after being released.

    The crew reached Karachi in Pakistan on June 23 and on Friday the six Indian crew members aboard MV Suez were sent to India. The 21 other Indian crew members apart from Sachin Pawshe belong to Shimla, Ambala, Rohtak and Jammu.

    I thank you, the people of Pakistan, and especially Mr. Ansar Burney, without whose undaunting efforts many families in India might not have seen their loved ones!

    This act is worth more than all the praise in the world.
