More exposure on Teesta

The self proclaimed messiah of the Muslims, the Shrill and raucous Teesta has been using unethical and questionable means to propagate many myths about "Muslims oppression". Not too long ago it became clear that a few "victims" in Naroda Gam were propped up by Teesta by fabricating false charges. And now there's more embarrassment for Ms. Setalvad, who had no qualms going all over the world pouring vitriol on Hindus and Modi in particular. Read here. Excerpts follow -

Raees Khan, who has been accused of distorting facts in the affidavits of six Naroda Gam witnesses, alleged Friday that activist Teesta Setalvad has been threatening him and said he has filed a police complaint against her.

The man was threatened for turning inconvenient -

Khan said late on Friday evening that he had to take this step as calls were made to him from Ahmedabad railway station warning him and his family of dire consequence if "I turn out to be a nuisance to Teesta".

The threat -

"Do not say anything about Teesta. Do not address the media. Keep strictly away from media persons. Even if one word is spoken against Teesta, you and your family will have to pay a heavy price," Khan quoted the caller as saying.

And it is Teesta threatening -

"'I will send you to a place from where you will not return', Teesta had warned me recently when I asked for my two months' salary dues," Khan said.

And this pioneer report mentions Teesta indulging in bribing witnesses to claim "victimhood".

"Oppression" huh Teesta?

Overground jihadis

Abdul Rahman Antulay is sceptical of the circumstances under which Hemant Karkare died. It has been a day since he expressed his concern and is still unapologetic. On the contrary he claims his remarks have indeed helped the UPA government, which is a give away of the Congress's intentions. And he sat smiling when the opposition benches in the Lok Sabha demanded his removal. It did not seem to bother him that Karkare was accompanied by Ashok Kamte, Vijay Salaskar and others when they were all gunned down by the terrorists.
Public, political and intellectual discourse have denigrated to levels unimaginable. It is "liberal progressive" to smell a rat in everything. It is the same looney liberalism that questions singing of the National Anthem and our National Song. It has become unfashionable, indeed loathsome, to be seen as a nationalist. Talks of sedition, justification of jihadis have come to be celebrated in our "liberal" media. What ought to be a discussion in the national interest and security is reduced to propagating the "minority oppression" myth. Even such important national matters as security are trumped by the "concern for minority" argument.
The proposed anti-terror bill and the National Investigating Agency (NIA) have been opposed by the usual overground jihadis claiming they will be used against the minorities. And Antulay is indeed the minority affairs minister. It seems his understanding of the ministry's job is different. Apparently he seems to think, it is his bounden duty to protect jihadi Muslims. He gives us enough indication on what the government intends to used the NIA for. In this report he claims, (quote from the report) "On Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan's statement that there was no need to hold an inquiry into his demand, Antulay said he had no problem with it because now the matter could be dealt with by the proposed National Investigating Agency (NIA), a federal agency". The matter here is Karkare's killing by the jihadis. So rather than an unprecedented terror attack galvanising the political class in acting expeditiously to secure our citizens, it has become an occasion to "protect" the minorities and tools and laws devised to "counter" terror will now be used to "investigate" the supposed oppression of the minorities. With such leaders, do we even need jihadi's the bring this nation down?
Overground jihadis have infiltrated everything, the media, the parliament etc. And thay are not in short supply either. So when anyone points to Pakistani flags being hoisted on Indian soil or point to Pakistani jihadis, we are told to be "mature" and "understand" their "grievances". Never mind that such actions are against our constitution and patently anti-national.
Now as the din over the Mumbai massacre has begun to subside, the usual looney liberals have begun their "secular" agenda. Groundwork has begun to bail out Ajmal Kasab, the lone jihadi caught alive in Mumbai. There are stories of his beloved parents in Pakistan, his pictures from the hospital, suggestions of the sufferings he apparently underwent. Within a few days the same "enough is enough" actors will be raising their pitch in defense of the "poor oppressed misguided" Ajmal, conveniently forgetting that he set his foot on our soil to massacre innocent Indians and carry out the jihadi agenda. Also, there is already talk of seeking a "fair" trail for Ajmal. This talk presumes that Ajmal will not get a fair trial in India. A treasonous argument. "Fair", in this case, could only mean one thing, acquittal.
When the entire world has now realised Pakistan's role in terrorism and its support of global jihad, we have our "intellectuals" telling us they are "oppressed" and "misguided" souls. What is more baffling is that rather than "guide" the "misguided", it is the majority Indians that get preached! Which is the same as asking the prey to stay still while the predator adjusts him aim.
It is also the same looney liberals that have ended the fear of consequences amongst the wrong doers. In seeking to justify every terrorists actions against our nation, they have only emboldened them further. The liberals never for once stop to think the harm they are causing to the nation and the disservice they are doing. Reams of papers and hours of programs are produced, complete with "expert" opinions that justify everything from sedition to terrorism. And there is no second thought given to the means applied in achieving this goal. Many a myth goes unchallenged, stories pass for facts, numbers are twisted to suit their "secular" interpretation, inconvenient facts, blatant abuse of the laws are completely ignored.
Unless this "secular" noise is filtered and drowned out, there can be no clear, constructive discussion on the national interest. The overground jihadis must be defeated first. That is the first step towards tacking terrorism.

And now, blind men can rape!

A majority of the nun rape cases are very peculiar in nature and this one (Orissa nun rape case) is no exception. The usual drill is allege rape, prop up a "victim" nun, get a cahoot media to sensationalize the story, hold talk shows condemning the majority community and claim threat to India's secularism.
But, as investigations throw light on the matter, truth, it turns out, is usually on the contrary. This inconvenience always begets silence. Apparently, secularism cannot be under threat now.
A BJP MLA from Baliguda, Orissa has claimed that one of the suspects arrested by the Orissa police is a blind man. So now, the blind can rape. This is one curious case. It began with the nun alleging rape, a pliable media ran this story, then the nun went underground, refused to co-operate with the police, refused to come back to Orissa, the courts had to step in and order the nun to co-operate, next the nun claims a Hindu man saved her from being raped and now the police have arrested a blind man as one of the suspects. And since the inconvenient facts began to emerge, the "conscientious" media has ignored to cover it. You would think that rational minds would apply the same yardstick in passing judgements, but then we are talking of secularism in the Indian context.

Spontaneous victim theory

Radical muslims, despite history telling us otherwise, could never be aggressors. They can only be victims. That's the "secular" belief. And to prove this the "secularists" can postulate any number of convenient theories obfuscating facts suggesting otherwise. And the human rights business runs solely on this principle. The moment you prove this victimisation false, they will all be out of a job the very next moment. Hence the zealous need on the "secularists" and "human rights" activists part to perpetuate this mythical victimhood amongst the muslims. And this eagerness to paint all Hindus evil leads them to apply unethical means in manufacturing "truth", of which Teesta Setalvad in the beau idéal.
Her attempt at propping up Zaheera Sheikh, under duress, to perpetuate falsehood is one such example. And here, (excerpts later) there's more embarrassment for the "secularists". When it comes to applying questionable means in attaining one's goal, except physical violence, there is hardly any difference between the terrorists and the "secularists". Is it any surprise then that their heart bleeds for the terrorists?
Excerpts begin [Emphasis added] -
In a shocking revelation, six victims of the 2002 Naroda Gam riots have told the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that their statements submitted at several places in connection with the case were fabricated and recorded without their knowledge.
Wondering why or how could the "victims" not have any knowledge of what they were alleging? Here's why -
Tell SIT that human rights groups, relief camp authorities made them sign statements written in English, which they could not understand
And here's another Zaheera -
In her deposition before the SIT in February this year, victim Madina Pathan (25) retracted from her statement in the affidavit filed before the Supreme Court in 2003 and told the SIT that no one had raped her that day.

More lip service

Manmohan Singh has apologised to the nation over the Mumbai attacks. However, he owes much more than that. He, along with Sonia, has blood on his hands. Sitting over specific intelligence inputs is akin to complicity in murder.
That it took Manmohan Singh this long to realise his folly is a sorry indication of his clouded intellect. This realisation ought to have dawned on him back in Aug. 2004 (soon after he took over as our PM) when a bomb went off in Assam (ironically represented by him in the Rajya Sabha) killing innocent school children. That should have been the incident to startle Singh from his slumber and jolt him in action. Since then, there have been at least a dozen major terror attacks on our soil and yet it is now, after about 3000 lives have been lost, he realises his mistake. Unconvincing. So much for his concern for the aam aadmi!
There is one critical realisation that has not yet dawned on Singh. It is actions that define a leader, not words. Throughout his tenure, all that Singh has ever delivered is sermons to the nation. What baffles one and all is when Singh knew so much on what the government should be doing, why has there been no action on his part. L K Advani, in the Lok Sabha, rightly asked the question, "Are you here to govern or tender advice?". And Arun Shourie, in the Rajya Sabha, has made a compelling argument indicting the ruling dispensation of criminal apathy are dereliction of duty.
Perhaps no other Prime Minister has hurt our national interest so much as Manmohan Singh. He has been nothing short of a monumental letdown.
The people of the nation are angry precisely because of the UPA's failure to act on any significant matter. The current outpour is only a culmination of over 4 years of frustration. Mere words or assurances will no longer placate the them, action, rather concrete and decisive action in the nation's interest will. The opposition too has vowed its complete support to steps in this regard. It is questionable if the PM will shun partisanship and appeasement to stand up and deliver for the nation.

We won't learn, we are Congressmen

That is the message from the Congress leaders. Mumbai was a war zone for about three days. Hundreds of innocent Indians died, some of our bravest men lost their lives protecting us and yet the Congressmen fail it get it.

Vilasrao Deshmukh and R R Patil stepped down, not willingly and accepting failure, but rather reluctantly and under pressure from the 'high command'. No concern for integrity and morality. Narayan Rane is even worse, having failed to score the CM chair, the man has now revolted against his party. Our country burns and the Congressmen squabble for power. That is Congress's definition of national interest for you.

Conspicuous by absense

The usual shrill voices of the bleeding hearts group inc. is curiously silent on the Mumbai attacks. No "concern" for the victims lives? The victims do not have human rights?

Shocking beyond words

What kind of a government ignores threats to its own citizens and sovereignty? The callous apathy of sitting on specific intelligence inputs without doing anything about them is unpardonable. This pioneer news report makes the governments negligence clear.
Some excerpts -
Two days before the terrorists struck at Mumbai, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) had intercepted this chilling message: Char halal ho gaye jenab (four have been killed).” Already in possession of information about a possible attack on Mumbai by sea route, the RAW passed on this message to the Coast Guard to increase vigilance along the coast. The matter ended there. No one cared to react. Two days later, the terror boat made a safe landing at the Cuffe Parade port in Mumbai coast.
And here is specific intelligence input [Emphasis added] -
This is just one piece of input that went abegging. The terrorists were in constant touch with their ‘masters’ across the border and several of their messages were intercepted by the Indian intelligence, who passed them on to both the Centre and the Maharashtra Government. There were similar other specific inputs which intelligence officials processed and warned of an imminent attack on Mumbai. Some warnings specifically mentioned Taj and Oberoi hotels as possible targets. For once, it would be unfair to lay the blame at the door of RAW, Intelligence Bureau or National Security Adviser.
But where is accountability? Resignations are nothing but escape routes for politicians. The UPA and the Maharashtra government ought to be tried in court for negligence and dereliction of duty. And sadly, none of the mainstream "secular" news media and the self proclaimed conscience keepers of the nation hold the politicians accountable. All we ever hear from them is pontification.
The exemplary Arun Shourie too has completely exposed the UPA's callous apathy and failures to carry out its duties. Please read it in its entirety. With leaders like the UPA constituents who needs enemies.
