Five Reasons Why They Love Ishrat Jahan

It is sad that while our soldiers keep dying with great regularity in our proxy battle with Pakistan, #AdarshLiberals find so much love and sympathy for their very killers.

On 15 June 2004, the Pranesh-Amjad-Zeeshan encounter took place. Pranesh Pillai (a.k.a. Javed Gulam Sheikh), Amjad Ali Rana and Zeeshan Johar perished at the hands of the police and inputs were received from the Intelligence Bureau which had just received a new boss in the form of Congress Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

There were many things pointing to the facts that they were terrorists of the Pakistani group Lashkar-e-Taiba and the latest conformation comes from David Headley, an American terrorist of Pakistani origin, who is currently serving a 35-year prison term in the US. They had come to allegedly assassinate the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

These are the facts of the case. Now welcome to India, where #AdarshLiberals and the English media live in a La La Land of their own. This is how they see the case…

An innocent girl called Ishrat Jahan was brutally gunned down by the vindictive Gujarat Police probably at the behest of Modi and he should stand trial for the same. Ishrat was praised profusely in these circles and JDU Bihar’s leader Ali Anwar called her “Bihar ki Beti”.

An ambulance service was started in the name of “Shahid Ishrat Jahan” in Mumbai and the liberals of India shed tears, held candlelight marches, wrote editorials and lamented the loss of an innocent life 24X7.

Even now after Headley’s latest explosive allegations claiming she was a terrorist, they are still living in denial and trying to rubbish Headley’s claims and trying to cling on to their “Shahid”. But the question to be asked is: Why do all of them love Ishrat so much in the first place?

headleyHere are the reasons why…

1. They hate Modi: This is the most simple and straightforward reason. Modi haters absolutely rule India’s (pseudo) intellectual, (pseudo) secular, media, (pseudo) liberal and Civil Society space.

They hate everything Modi does and refuse to acknowledge a single thing about him. Every event that takes place around Modi’s life is twisted to make him look bad. So if the Gujarat police have shot down anyone, then those killed have to be innocent and the police have to be the culprits because they report to Modi.

Every event will be twisted to flog Modi. Here, they did a simple piece of propaganda to make their case effective…

“The Pranesh-Amjad-Zeeshan Encounter Case” became “The Ishrat Jahan Fake Encounter Case”.

They are such masters at branding. They love Ishrat because it gave them a chance to really flay Modi.

2. Aman Ki Asha: The same above mentioned persons have a blind spot for Pakistan. They just love Pakistan. They refuse to accept them as the enemy. They totally overlook the fact that there have been half a dozen wars and conflicts between India and Pakistan.

That’s why you scenes like those at JNU recently where there was a demonstration for a free Kashmir. Pakistan was praised while India was rubbished. That’s par for the course. Since the Pranesh-Amjad-Zeeshan Encounter case has its origins in a terror plot in Pakistan—that had to be edited out.

The fact that Ishrat was with them proved to be fortuitous. After that they totally bypassed the three other terrorists and showered all their affection on Ishrat and the focus was only on her.

There was an assassination plot on Modi? Ignore it.

There were three other terrorists involved? Ignore it.

Ishrat? Just focus on her and her alone!

3. She has been made a symbol: She was immediately made a symbol and after that that is all she became. A symbol of innocence. A symbol of victimization. A symbol of the oppressive Gujarati State. A symbol of Fascist Modi.

In the end, most people didn’t have the foggiest idea of what the terror plot was or how the encounter took place. All Modi haters simply took her as a symbol for everything that is wrong with Modi and love her for that.

4. Warped sense of secularism: Before India got Independence, secularism meant recognizing no religion. Then after Independence we defined it as recognizing all religions. After the 1980s it became only one thing: Minority appeasement.

So in this case a Hindu leader was pitted against a minority terror accused. For #AdarshLiberals, it was no contest and they chose the latter. Adding to the above, Ishrat became a symbol of secularism too.

5. She was a victim killed in an encounter: Ajmal Kasab was an LeT terrorist and killed people in cold blood during Mumbai’s 26/11. He was found guilty of 80 offences and sentenced by the trial court, the Bombay High Court and the Supreme Court.

The President of India turned down his clemency plea. A similar thing happened to Afzal Guru, who was hanged for his involvement in the 2001 Parliament attack case. Now if #AdarshLiberals can show great sympathy for these two and celebrate them, then in the case of Ishrat, there was no trial and no conviction.

When you can even accuse a person who has been convicted by three successive courts of innocence, then Ishrat can well easily be loved. Do an image search of Ishrat Jahan and you will either get a picture of a smiling young innocent Ishrat or one dead on the road.

Even if she was a terrorist as revealed by Headley, it’s quite easy to pass her off as someone quite innocent. It is sad that while our soldiers keep dying with great regularity in our proxy battle with Pakistan, #AdarshLiberals find so much love and sympathy for their very killers.

    RSS & BJP hate secularism & shudras particularly Muslims. Their tools to create hatered are: Untouchability, Beef, India-pak cricket, false accusations on patriotism, terrorism.

  • Sanjib Tripathy

    Thanks for exposing the anti-national elements masquerading as liberals with an overdose of opium like damaging factor, viz., fake secularism. It is matter of time only that the exposure happens to alert the true nationalists.

  • Zohrab

    As per the latest news, now Headley denied giving such a statement branding Ishrat Jahan as and linking with terrorists, I wonder what Sunil has to say after all this blabbering with concocted imaginary piece..!

    • Yadav

      Good attempt at deflecting. headley did no such thing. Guess your religion only teaches you guys to lie and cheat !

  • Zohrab

    Quote/=
    Nikam: There is a women’s wing in the LeT?
    Headley: Yes.
    Nikam: Are there female suicide bombers in LeT?
    Headley: No. I don’t know.
    Nikam: Can you name a suicide bomber?

    [Vrinda Grover: This is a slightly strange sequence of questions since he just told you he doesn’t know if they have female suicide bombers – but the court allows it]

    Headley: I cannot name.
    Nikam: Was there a botched up operation in India?
    Headley: Yes, there was a botched up operation which I learnt when Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi was talking to Muzammil Bhat. Later I asked Muzammil and he told me there was a female member of LeT who was killed in a police shootout at a naka. Exact place I cannot recall.

    [Vrinda Grover: Note what he is telling you – there was a botched up operation somewhere in India, some woman was shot dead, I don’t know who she was, I can’t even remember the place. Later apparently he is asked ‘do you think it was Gujarat?’, and he says yes. This is hearsay twice over, it cannot be seen as evidence in any known jurisprudence. Yet this line of question is allowed, and such answers remained on record even though it cannot be read as evidence in India]

    Nikam: I will give you three options: Noor Begum, Ishrat Jahan or Mumtaz.
    Headley: I think it was the second one. I have heard the name Ishrat Jahan.

    Party rivalry has clouded Raul Vinci ( rahul’s original passport name) to shamelessly support a scummy terrorist! Why is he still a national leader when he supports terrorists!

    • Mihir

      supporting anti nationals should cost rahul, kejriwal, mamta, nitish , lalu , brida karat , sitaram yechury , derek obrien in all state and national elections

  • Rajat Datta

    It is quite clear these people wanted Narendra Modi dead, asassinated by Ishrat and her cohorts. These thugs do not even hesitate to support a terrorist to malign or even eliminate a political rival. These thugs are at it again, giving support to the anti-national elements at JNU in the garb of freedom of speech. Utterly disgusting. On the other hand, the media like NDTV is busy discussing the definition of NATIONALISM.
    What a nation! Rubbishing the nation and hailing terrorists is a fashion while our soldiers are martyred in the icy heights of Siachen. Time to kick these traitors out of the country.

    • Mihir

      ndtv is funded by the vatican church

      • Rajat Datta

        That explains their conduct.

            You still haven’t told me if you would support gay weddings in temples. Have you made up your mind as yet?

            Offcourse they will support her, it is their daughter. But, the evidence against that woman is irrefutable inspite of Chiddu and his leash holder trying to manufacture evidence to the contrary.

          • Yadav

            Are gay weddings banned in Temples ? There is no such ban in Sanathana Dharma unlike false religions like islam and christianity.

          • Rajat Datta

            Whining comes to you naturally.

    There is only one reason , why Isharat Jahan ‘s case was persisted with and the fake encounter case was kept alive.It was to malign Modi . The soul harvesting religious institutions and Jihadists backed groups always felt intimidated by the strong man of Gujrat . Especialy his ability to come back to power purely with Hindu support despite concerted effort to mar his character with unfounded accusations of aiding the communal riot , unnerved this vested interests group . They feared if there was one man who was capable of mobilizing the Hindu support , which was kept marginalized and dormant by these vested interests group , it was Modi . Modi had to be checked by all means . Unfortunately for them , the support on which they counted ( congress ) was already losing its charm over the people and none of the leaders could match Modi . In hard core cut throat politics , a person with such characters and features as — incorruptible nature , fire for Nationalism , ability to perform and above all being devoid of kith and kin who could be used to drag any politician down or hold him to ransom , can make a person a very dangerous proposition to counter .
    The anti Modi camp ,having come to naught in finding an exploitable chink in Modi govts armor by way of corruption ,policy deficiencies etc etc are exploiting the BJP frenzy for Nationalism to project the govt as intolerant to dissent and freedom of speech . Right from fermenting trouble in Madras IIT through Ambedkar periyar circle ‘s anti social activities ,to Hyderabad university and JNU anti National activities , the plot has been constructed well to trap the Govt in to acting against the provocateurs .It is a well laid out trap .They were sure about the govt’s response .It was very much like showing the proverbial “Red ” to the enrage the Bull .

    The over indulgence by this group to paint Modi’s regime as intolerant and one that suppresses freedom of speech is making them throw caution to the wind and become indiscreet . Just like an over indulgent desperate poker player they are coming close to the brink of disaster . The common mass is observing with disbelieve the kind of support anti national forces are getting from the main opposition parties and it will decide what needs to be done . The pseudo elites and intellects who fight for ill contrived extreme freedom of speech are minuscule .The common mass which understands and appreciates simple basic concepts like mother land , patriotism etc swear by them . Come 2019 there will be many million teens who would get universal adult franchise .They will definitely make a difference in favor of Nationalism .

    This is a very Good article, but a very polite rebuff. The clear fact is that all JNU et-al IS DUE TO THE EVIL PRESENCE OF THE AGENT OF ENEMIES OF INDIA AND HINDUS, THE EVIL MURDEROUS OPUS DEI-CIA plant SONIA. The filthy gened half Bastd (rahul or Raul Vinci) and the pack of Italian Street Dogs like TOI, NDTV make a hue and cry about FoE. Same multibedded B.Dutt (remember that she is a Xtian whore a sonagacchi prd like Pronoy James Roy Barkha being reverse of Khabar,she is so ashamed of her mother’s character), that Portuguese product of Goa sluthouse Rajdeep SUAR-desai supported the barbaric 66A and arrested 3 people just for calling that Italian Demoness Soorpnakha. Kindly remember that its a massive Xtian conspiracy to make Hindus history like Mayas, Incas, Aztecs, Tainos, Maoris by playing Hindus against Muslims. The evil bloodthirsty Xtian Opus Dei satans led by that demoness Tadaka Sonia wants to break India, and these street sluts and dogs are all Xtians with Hindu names. ZoomIndia has exposed the hidden Crypto Xtian faces of the likes of Karat, and his big c…t keep Brenda Karat, Yechury et-al. Chinese Pimps of Italy (Mo f) = CPI (M) . D.Raja also Dog Raja so called wife is a Xtian Anne Raja, and his multibedded Xtian s..lt daughter was involved in Pro Pak slogans. If they hate Modi they can leave India for ever. This Italian two bit gutter born Bardancer and worse..is not being begged by Indians to be in India. This White skinned demon and her piglets Raul abd Bianca breathe in India to break it. In any other country she would have been blown to such nano pieces that ITALIAN NAZI CCOKS = INC could not have even found with electron microscope even if she and her piglets would have dared even 0.00001%. But this prostitute had vowed in 2007 that she will destroy Saffron and Sangh.AND WE TOLERATE HER EVEN SUPPORTING TERRORISTS AND KILLERS OF 10000 INDIANS IN BOMB BLASTS RATHER THAN VOWING TO WIPE HER AND HER PIGLETS AND HER FAMILY IN ITALY OR UK OR WHEREEVER TO LAST MAN..HER REGISTERED (BIOLOGICAL UNKNOWN) FATHER WAS A NAZI KILLER OF JEWS..Its a National Duty of all NATIONALISTS to see the end of these families OR HINDUS WILL FACE THE FATE OF RWANDA, BANGALDESH, ..IF BY CHANCE THIS VICIOUS DEMONESS OR HER FILTHY GUTTER BLOOD IS ALLOWED TO TAKE POWER.THIS CHILD KILLER AND HER MEDIA STREET DOGS OF BILLIONARE CORPORATE MEDIA AND DOGS LIKE KEJRI-NITISH ARE TRAITORS AN SHOULD BE BEHEADED OPENLY AND NOW. THE BELOW FAMILIES IF NOT EXTERMINATED IN TOTALITY WILL BRING RUIN AND DEATH ON UNPRECEDENTED MAGNITUDE ON BHARAT..THESE ARE MOST EVIL VICIOUS DANGEROUS COBRAS. THEY HAVE NO SOUL AND WILL KILL MILLIONS (EVEN LET THEIR MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS BE RAPED IN ORGIES FOR TWO PEGS OF LIQUOR AND SOME FREE DOG MEAT).They HAVE to be wiped off from India in totality NOT a single gene of their allowed to breathe

    1. ITALIAN UNCULTURED BARDANCER SONIA AND HER PIGS RAUL,BIANCA, VADRA AND THEIR PIGLETS

    2. VINEET JAIN-INDU JAIN (NEE FERNANDES) THE ANTINATIONAL XTIAN EVIL DEMON GOING WITH FAKE HINDU NAME AS HIS MOTHER’S LACK OF CHARACTER IS WELL KNOWN IN LUTYENS CIRCLES = OWNER OF TOILET OF ITALY = TIMES OF INDIA

    3.NDTV PRONOY ROY AND FAMILY WITH KARAT AND FAMILY (XTIAN BSTD)= NANDIGRAM DEMON TV

    4 AROON PURIE (LARGEST PRINTER OF BIB-LIES IN INDIA) OWNER OF ITALIAN TOILET – INDIAN TODAY GROUP

    5. BARKHA DUTT RAJDEEP SARDESAIS WITH FAMILIES-PORTUGUESE PRDS OF STREETS

    DESTRUCTION OF THEIR FAMILIES MEANS DESTRUCTION OF THEIR EVIL EMPIRES. WE ARE CRORES AND FACELESS THESE ENEMIES OF INDIA HAVE A FACE .THEY SUPPORT KILLERS OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF INDIANS THEIR FILTHY BSTD FAMILIES DESERVE NO MERCY, EVEN A TODDLER OF DEMON IS A DEMON IN MAKING
    AND OFFCOURSE NO CIVILIZED SOCIETY TOLERATES THE DEMON LOONS OF GENOCIDAL MANIACS LIKE STALIN, MAO, POL POT, REKSAS, BERIA, YEZOV. THEY CANNOT BE TACKLED BY LOGIC.THEY UNDERSTAND THE LANGUAGE OF SUHARTO, FRANCO, AND RHEE THE THREE GREAT HEROS WHO INSTILLED TERROR IN EVEIL VILE HEARTS OF THESE RABID MADDOGS OF CHURCH. EVEN SMALL SRILANKA CAN TELL THE STORY OF ITS STRUGGLE AND ULTIMATE VICTORY OVER EVIL CHURCH (JVP-COMMIE AND LTTE INSURGENCY)
    NOW MODIJI TYPE DIPLOMACY WON’T WORK TILL TERROR STRIKES THE VILE HEARTS OF CONGI-COMMIES-MEDIA FAMILIES THEY DESERVE NO MERCY

    For these anti nationals and traitors, there is a new anthem:

    Sare jahan mein achcha Ishrat Jahan hamara…

    • Shyam Shyam

      Isharat’s p#%&# hamara!

    • Mihir

      Sare jahan se bure hindu,jain aur buddhists Re, hum inke tax ke tax enjoy karate aur inko Hi galli pukare,hum besharam itne ki just thalli me khaye usi me cheed kare sare.Yeh bewakoof itne ke hum agar intolerant kahe inko to hemari baton me aaye Bichare

  • Jitendra Desai

    Thanks to portals like this, large number of Hindus are becoming aware of anti Hindus masquerading as secularists.We need to continue such exposures.

    • Mihir

      Abhrahmic religions Judaism, christianity and islam want to dominate the world and vedic religions like hinduism, jainism and budfhism want to live in peace.the holy land of hindus from myanmar in the east to afghanistan in the west to tibet in the north and sri lanka in the south was known as aryavrata and this is the real bharat which has been infested with evil muslim,chritiansand Jews. If all these people are thrown out we can all live in peace in the holy land blessed by God.never has anyone heard of Buddhist,jain or hindu terrorist but we have Islamic terrorism controlled by saudi, qatar,pakistan and turkey,chritians terrorism controlled by vatican, uk and usa and Jewish semitic terrorist state israel which butchers palestineans arab.it is these abhrahimic satanic cult masquerading as religions which are a threat to global peace

      • Jitendra Desai

        Thnx for yr response.Even Vietnaam and Cambodia were part of this Hindu land.This century will witness coming together of 160 crores of Hindus,Baudhs,Jains and Sikhs of the world to defend their common heritage and common land.

        • Mihir

          Yes we should if wewant to live in peace and progress. even thailand should be included which has Buddhist majority as Buddhism is a branch of hinduism. Gautam Buddha was the ninth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Jews are killing palestineans in name of holy land and united nations ignores it completely and when we raise our voice we are called intolerant.This is the hypocrisy of the United nations and vatican

          • Jitendra Desai

            Agree!

          • Mihir

            Unity among vedic religion followers is of prime importance to defeat satanic abhrahimic religions judaism,christianity and islam

        • Yadav

          Exclude Sikhs, my experience with Sikhs is they will side with muslims, they changed bro.

  • Rajalakshmi J

    True.

    Congressi dig vijay singh mourned the death of osama bin laden holding a mass prayer & muslims of India willingly obliged.

    Our Saurabh Kalia & Ahuja have long been forgotten.Media seldom details what our Soldiers go through & WHY in Siachen Glaciers.

    When Svami Lakshmananda Sarasvathi was killed in cold blood by maoists ( agents of christian evangelicals) international media & indian media called it “caste wars”.

    When Mumbai killings by Kasab took place Pakistani media argued (sic) ” hindi spoken by kasab is very much Hindustani hindi unlike Pakistani language…so kasab is an agent of Indian Army & Mossad groomed to malign islam & Pakistan ” .

    Very similar to “Twin Towers being brought down by America to malign Islam & Godhra Arson perpetrated by self combustible coaches to malign Islam ” theories.
