“Our intelligence agencies must urgently erase the growth of ‘No Go’ zones in Indian cities and uproot the pro-Islamist-cum-Maoist moles embedded in educational institutions. Many radicals like Prof Ali Javed have been strutting across Delhi and major cities like Kolkata and Mumbai, operating in tandem with leftist outfits and traitors. Many of them are reported to have links with anti-India groups based in the Gulf and have connections with Pakistani spies embedded in India.” – R. K. Ohri
The fires of Maoism and Islamism have been smouldering across Jawaharlal Nehru University for several years, but the UPA government chose to ignore the growing student radicalization for reasons best known to itself. Now, on February 9, 2016, the institution has burst into flames with a function organized to eulogise Afzal Guru and to advocate the destruction of the Indian nation.
The two favourite slogans of the radicals of All India Students Association (AISA) and the Democratic Students Union (DSU) were ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Jang Rahegi Jaari Bharat Ki Barbadi Tak’. The reasons for announcing a new war against India are not difficult to seek.
Public memory is proverbially short, but far shorter is the memory of television anchors and column writers. The ultra-soft attitude of the UPA regime towards radical Islamists has be evaluated with reference to Rahul Gandhi’s confidential tête-à-tête with US Ambassador Timothy Roemer in April 2009, warning the latter that the saffron terror (read BJP) was far more dangerous than the Islamic terror of Lashkar-e-Taiba!
When the ultra-radical AISA won the student union elections in 2012, several groups of anti-nationals chanted the famous Maoist slogan, “Lal Salam” and drum beats reverberated across the campus. There were spontaneous celebrations on a scale far more impressive than in April 2010, when AISA and DSU jointly celebrated the massacre of 76 Jawans of the CRPF in an ambush by Maoist guerrillas at Dantewada, Chhattisgarh, under the aegis of ‘JNU Forum Against War on People’.
It is not an accident that the arrested Kanhaiya Kumar and the runaway organizer of the anti-national event, Khalid Umar, are active members of the DSU which organised this gruesome celebration. It is believed that Khalid Umar has been in touch with S.A.R. Geelani and Prof Ali Javed of Delhi University, who held a similar anti-national event at the Press Club of India on February 10, 2016. In these circumstances, it cannot be ruled out that these activists may be in touch with members of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).
Hence it is imperative to entrust the probe in the two cases of sedition and criminal conspiracy (in JNU and the Press Club of India) to the National Investigating Agency (NIA).
Our intelligence agencies must urgently erase the growth of ‘No Go’ zones in Indian cities and uproot the pro-Islamist-cum-Maoist moles embedded in educational institutions. Many radicals like Prof Ali Javed have been strutting across Delhi and major cities like Kolkata and Mumbai, operating in tandem with leftist outfits and traitors. Many of them are reported to have links with anti-India groups based in the Gulf and have connections with Pakistani spies embedded in India.
Time to expose Kejriwal’s radical connections
In order to understand the roots struck in the national capital by radical politicians, one must remember the umbilical connection between Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party with AISA. Our news anchors have forgotten that the Delhi Chief Minister’s right hand man is Transport Minister Gopal Rai, who was a prominent member of AISA and continues to have extensive contacts with the outfit’s leaders in JNU.
An important reason for the BJP’s defeat in the Delhi Assembly elections was its failure to highlight Kejriwal’s Dubai connection. On December 7, 2014, Kejriwal was felicitated by a shadowy Dubai-based organization, ‘World Brands Summit’ with great fanfare. He was flown in to the city, Business Class. While the Indian media noted the gross impropriety of a self-proclaimed ‘aam aadmi’ enjoying Business Class, they failed to see the AAP’s likely link to petro-dollars and fundamentalist groups, both in India and abroad. For several years Dubai has been an important pivot of radical Islam.
In a well-researched article, Baloch journalist Aamna Shahwani (The Afghanistan Times, Kabul, March 4, 2014) highlighted Kejriwal’s Pakistani connection: “In 2013 after Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party won 28 seats out of 70 seats in the Delhi Assembly elections, the Pakistani media was full of praise for AAP. Although the BJP had won a few more seats than the AAP, the well-known Pakistani newspaper, Dawn, totally ignored it and emphasized the AAP victory by front-paging the news. The Pakistani media also started praising Kejriwal for his spectacular success. No one knows why suddenly Kejriwal became a darling of the Pakistani media and chatterati?”
There were celebrations in different cities of Pakistan, especially in the Pakistan-administered Kashmir, heralding the AAP victory. Can Kejriwal explain this celebration of AAP’s political debut in the neighbouring country? There was a big spurt in online donations from Pakistanis to AAP. According to Aamna Shahwani, more support was likely come to AAP from Pakistan because the ISI wanted to have a puppet regime in New Delhi.
In February 2014, some Pakistani journalists and media groups interviewed Kejriwal. Even the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, proclaimed that his victory would help in resolving the Kashmir dispute. The sudden emergence of Kejriwal as darling of Pakistani politicians needs explanation.
Prima facie, the reason is the AAP’s anti-India stand on the Kashmir dispute. Aamna Shahwani has pointed out that at least three members of the AAP had openly delivered anti-India and pro-secessionist statements on Kashmir favouring a referendum, or plebiscite; most prominent was the now-expelled founder member, Prashant Bhushan. Shahwani observed that AAP has many members who had pleaded for sparing the life of Afzal Guru, sentenced to death for his role in the attack on the Indian Parliament.
In another important article titled, ‘Islamists in Pakistan launch online campaign for funding AAP’ (website ‘Covert Wires’, November 17, 2013), researchers Somiksha C. Mohanta and Nazia Murtad drew attention to the fact that Kashmiri separatists were running online donation campaigns for the Aam Aadmi Party. Mohanta and Murtad wrote that the leader of the AAP was not a visionless man, but has a far-sighted vision which enables him to get a proper sense of winning elections. He knows clever ways to earn funding for the AAP from outside India. It was pointed out that Kejriwal constantly claimed that the AAP was clean money from NRI’s via the donation section of the AAP website. The party once boasted that it has received INR 5 million from an NRI based in East Asia, which donation lacked transparency. But the catch, according to Mohanta-Murtad, was that one can never prove whether some foreign agencies were channelizing funds through NRI’s abroad.
Mohanta and Murtad highlighted a recorded instance of an anti-India Indian who donated two months’ salary to the AAP, INR 45,000, ostensibly because “Mujhe yakeen hai aaplog India mein Islami Huqumat Qayam Karogey” (I am sure you will establish Islamic rule in India). [Ibid]
This pro-Kejriwal online activist, Qayyum Endian, described the situation created by AAP as a historical turning point and hailed Kejriwal as the new Jaichand who will initiate the second phase of Islamisation of India. Qayyum Endian further asked Kejriwal to provide assistance to Muslims. His message posted in the online campaigns elucidated that the citizenship filter is a deliberate security breach and even as you have to sign that you are an Indian citizen in the form checkbox attribute, it lets you bypass the obstruction. He suggested that this was a nice way to shoot two targets with a single arrow – managing to create a public perception that they were receiving no foreign funding, but were getting only NRI money. Thus, one could still make a donation to them. When a person successfully makes the payment through credit/debit card, he will receive a Transaction ID like Qayyum did.
Qayyum thereafter urged the public to assist AAP according to his/her capability because, “Allah said that the dust you face in the battle, will return as fragrance …” According to Mohanta and Murtad, this post supporting Kejri’s AAP was first found on a Facebook page titled, “Our Kashmir, Our Concern” running from Muzaffarabad in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir. It aimed at promoting the separatist cause in Kashmir and supporting the Pakistani Army. (See https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=232217923619106 (dead link)). Later, the post found its way to other separatist and Pakistani pages on the Internet. [Ibid]
This same article found by Somiksha Mohanta and Nazia Murtad was also found by Asansol News on their website. Thus, prima facie AAP appears to have got huge funds from anti-India operatives based in Pakistan, Pak-Occupied Kashmir and some Gulf-based entities. (Facsimile of payment through IDBI Bank, posted by Qayyum Endian, can be seen at Covert Wires, November 17, 2013.)
Somiksha Mohanta and Nazia Murtad posed the important question whether Arvind Kejriwal truly deserves the title of Jaichand bestowed on him by Qayyum Endian? The more important question that needs to be answered is whether the AAP really aims at promoting Islamic rule in India, as asserted by Qayyum Endian?
Qayyum Endian cites several reasons why Pakistani and Indian Muslims and even “Good Hindus” (secularism-swearing fellow travellers) should support the AAP. One is that the AAP was the boldest critic of the BJP, which is an important nationalist Indian party and therefore the most anti-Pakistan outfit. AAP suits the Muslims because it has excellently fooled the Indian masses who believe every rubbish which the AAP spits out. For instance, the AAP quickly blamed Narendra Modi and Amit Shah for provoking communal riots in Muzaffarnagar, in Uttar Pradesh, India without any proof. And that qualifies AAP to get funds from Pakistanis and “Endians” like Qayyum.
Unfortunately, our intelligence agencies seem to have missed this highly revealing article of Somiksha Mohanta and Nazia Murad.
It is intriguing that Arvind Kejriwal had a two hour long meeting with the hardcore Mullah Tauqueer of Bareilly, who had issued a ‘fatwa’ in March 2007 promising a reward of Rs. five lakhs to any Muslim willing to behead Bangladeshi writer, Taslima Nasreen. Earlier in 2006, the same Maulana had announced a reward of Rs. 25 crores for beheading US President George Bush, before his visit to India. When asked what he discussed for two hours with Maulana Tauqueer, Kejriwal’s laconic reply was that he didn’t know about the Maulana’s communal background!
We may recall that during Anna Hazare’s dharna at Ramlila Grounds, Kejriwal had removed the painting of Bharat Mata from the stage on being told that it hurt the sentiments of Muslims. This mischief was immediately after meeting Imam Bukhari of Jama Masjid.
More recently, on February 9, 2016, the Aam Aadmi Party celebrated the birthday of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, across Punjab. Posters carrying photographs of Bhindranwale, Kejriwal and other leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party were pasted across Chandigarh and other cities, urging the Sikhs to join the celebrations in gurdwaras.
Prima facie, there is a valid case for investigating Kejriwal’s alleged association with radical Muslims and secessionist Sikh groups working against the Indian nation. His close connections with the AISA, cultivated through his confidante, Gopal Rai, and the AAP’s youth wing, Yuva Chhatra Sangharsh Samiti, thorough investigation. Interestingly, India’s voluble media has never cared to unravel the truth about the AAP managing to enlist the support of several anti-India groups operating in Pakistan, Pak-Occupied Kashmir, Punjab and the sheikhdoms of West Asia. – Vijayvaani, 16 February 2016
