Australia & NewZealand have already protested this. But what are we as Hindusthani doing? Nothing ?? Should we not protest ??? And protest more than others ?????

NEW DELHI, May 21 (AFP) - Indian relatives of Fijian Prime Minister Mahendra Chaudhry on Sunday asked New Delhi to rush commandos to Suva for a surgical military strike to end the hostage crisis in the Pacific nation. Madhu and Mukta Chaudhry, two nieces of the captive Fijian prime minister also said they would locally garner support to pressure Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee on a military option to free their uncle being held hostage in an attempted coup.

"India should help this family. These terrorists are nobody and a surgical commando strike will change the scenario," Madhu said.

"We are going on a hunger strike to press for our demands," Madhu told AFP from the Indian city of Rohtak by telephone, as a Fiji minister freed after two days of captivity by gunmen in Suva said he and his colleagues were pressured at gunpoint to quit or be killed.

The OLDER NEWS goes as follows :

Fiji's president has declared a state of emergency after a group of armed civilians took over the government. President Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara has declared the coup illegal. Coup leader George Speight, a local businessman, said he was acting in the name of indigenous Fijians against a government dominated by politicians of Indian ethnic origin.

A small group of his supporters are holding Fiji's first ethnic Indian Prime Minister Mahendra Chaudry and seven cabinet ministers hostage at parliament in the capital Suva.

The prime minister is said to be locked in an office in the upper floor of the building. Mr Chaudhry's government was elected under a non-racial constitution a year ago to the day. He was the first ethnic Indian to head a government in Fiji.

Fijian nationalist groups have recently held street protests vowing to topple the government and in the past 24 hours there was an attempt to set fire to an historic Indian landmark.
