Pure Modi Magic! 

Psuedo -seculars must be grunting and sulking!

But the truth is even Muslims are tired of vote-bank politics and are embracing Modi brand of development politics!

Time to throw out the likes of Mamata, Mulayam, Nitish, Lallu and the Nehru-Gandhi clan lead Congress brigade.

Modi-vate the people to Modi-fy the nation.

Jai Hind!

 

Modi sweep: Muslim majority town elects all BJP candidates

 

 Ahmedabad, Feb 12: It was a straight fight and the BJP created history by winning all 27 seats of town municipality in Salaya, a Muslim-majority town in Dwarka district. Salaya is know for its mega power project and now it will be known for giving Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi another triumph in the development agenda.

Among BJP’s 27 candidates, 24 were Muslims while remaining three were Hindus including one Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidate.

The BJP’s sweep in a township comprising 90 percent Muslims will take wind of many pseudo-secular elements. Of the 27 seats spread over nine wards, BJP candidates won unopposed on four seats in state municipal elections. Voting for remaining 23 seats took place on Sunday (10th February) with Congress in straight fight with BJP. The Congress party candidates even lost deposit on three seats.

Salaya has been enjoying fruits of development with Essar Energy’s integrated energyc company establishing a power unit to generate 1200 mw. Salaya I is Essar Energy’s first coal fired power project and has been built at a total investment cost of US$1.1 billion. Most of the power produced will be sold to the Gujarat state electricity utility, GUVNL, under a long term contract. When all the units are commissioned, the project is expected to generate nearly 2000 mw power.

Salaya will also be getting a world-class marine infrastructure project with a state-of-the-art material handling facility. The bulk handling port will be capable of handling 20 MMTPA of cargo. The jetty is located in the Salaya Harbour, which is naturally protected by two islands – Kalubhar Tapu and Dhani Be.

Essar has been conducting various projects under its social development initiative in Salaya. To empower the local women, Essar Foundation runs a stitching centre in Salaya. The Foundation is supporting the stitching center by providing skills and creating new business opportunities. This will also provide the associated families with an alternative source of income, by establishing market linkages.

The stitching center at Salaya initially started as a small community program by the local Wagher Muslim Community Jamat, with the idea to provide skill development to the women without them having to leave their houses.

The center is also imparting the women several life skills such as basic literacy, personality development, accounts and business entrepreneurship.

Poor Shahid Siddiqui!  He thought he was doing a good job, hiding under cover of a journalist. At no point did his interview seem to facilitate Narendra Modi’s defense. In fact, every attempt was made to put Modi in uncomfortable position with dubious questions, tirelessly repeating the media created lies, most of which have already been evaluated extensively and put to rest by the Supreme court appointed SIT in recent past.

Mr Siddiqui must have thought that accolades must be on its way for putting Modi on the dissection table for the nth time. Alas!  That was not to be. He did not expect Modi to turn the table, stand his ground  and reiterate with further conviction, that what he had always stood for, despite the decade old heaps of lies and accusations. 

So now Mr Siddiqui finds himself thrown out of his party and isolated from the same folks from whom he perhaps expected the most approval. Certainly he himself cannot be blamed like the Deoband Chief Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi, who had to be removed from his post for his “non-secular” comments on Modi.

The pseudo seculars are alarmed and growing intolerant everyday. They wanted a gladiator’s fight – you either kill your enemy in the arena or we will kill you! 

The question is what does the Muslim population in general think.

Is it time to disown these pseudo-secular leaders and parties?

 

 

SP Disowns Shahid Siddiqui for Interview With Modi

PTI, Lucknow, July 28, 2012
 
The Samajwadi Party today distanced itself from Shahid Siddiqui, saying he is no longer a part of the party two days after his interview with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi made waves.”The party wants to clarify that Siddiqui had left SP long back and joined BSP on whose ticket he contested Lok Sabha election from Bijnor,” party’s national general secretary and spokesman Ram Gopal Yadav said in a statement issued here.

He said that later Siddiqui joined the Rashtriya Lok Dal.

“Siddiqui is not a SP member and has nothing to do with the party,” Yadav said, asking the media not to project him as SP leader.

Yadav said terming Siddiqui as a SP leader was “outrightly wrong”.

Siddiqui, who is the editor of Urdu weekly Nai Duniya, had recently interview Modi in which the Gujarat Chief Minister had refused to apologise for the post-Godhra riots and instead said he would prefer to be hanged if found guilty.

In an image makeover exercise, Modi had said in the interview, “If my government had done this (post-Godhra riots), I should be hanged in public in such a way that it remains a lesson for the next 100 years so that nobody dares to do it (such a crime)”.

Siddqiqui was a SP MP before he joined the RLD only to rejoin the Samajwadi Party in January this year.

Ram Gopal Yadav said that Siddiqui may be interested in an alliance with Modi.

SP leader Azam Khan said, “In politics neither friendship nor enmity is permanent. But we can’t maintain friendship with a murderer like Narendra Modi. Modi is an enemy of humanity. I feel this is wrong. It is not right for a person like Modi to have been given an opportunity to give his opinion to a major Urdu daily.”

Reacting to the SP’s move to distance itself from Siddiqui, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said, “As a journalist it is not necessary to only publish the views of those you agree with. His paper won’t only publish news related to Mulayam Singh Yadav.

“As an editor, he has the right to interview whoever he wishes. However, it is an old habit of SP to alter their actions to cater to their votebank. How can you demand clarifications and not listen when answers are provided,” he said.

Gujarat BJP leader Yatin Oza said, “For the first time someone has asked Modi about his view. For this removing a senior member of the party is politics of minority appeasement and hypocrisy. This is an autocratic way of functioning. 

This is an unwritten rule. Praise the incorruptible Modi and you are guaranteed to face the ire of all the secular media, its bogus activists and its ugly politicians. Even Anna Hazare, the present darling of India, had to backtrack and offer some explanation for spilling out the truth.

 

Narendra Modi writes an open letter to Anna

 New Delhi: A day after Anna Hazare praised Narendra Modi for the development work the Gujarat Chief Minister had undertaken, Modi posted an open letter on his blog addressed to Anna Hazare, hailing the veteran Gandhian and anti-corruption activist.

 Here’s the full text of Narendra Modi’s open letter to Anna Hazare:

 

My heartfelt feelings in an open letter to Annaji

Respected Annaji,

On the eighth day of fasting in the Navratri I am inspired to write to you early at 5 O’clock in the morning.

When you were sitting at fast in Delhi during that period, I too was fasting on the occasion of Navratri, the period that symbolizes the embodiment of Divine Shakti. I was pleased indeed that by the grace of Maa Jagadamba I happened to be a co-traveller in your crusade albeit indirectly.

Observing the Navratri fast and being busy in election campaigning, I was fortunate to have the darshan of Mother Kamakshi in Assam. Your fasting was in progress and naturally I did pray to Kamakshidevi about your health and I feel certain that a divine power has been kind enough to bestow her blessings on you.

Yesterday I was back from Kerala campaign to Gandhinagar at 2 am.

And it was yesterday that I got the encouraging news of your expressing kind words for Gujarat and me.

I am fortunate and grateful to get your blessings.

Respected Annaji, my respect for you is decades old. Before I entered politics I was full time RSS pracharak. At that time national leaders of the RSS who came to attend our meetings invariably discussed your rural development activities so that it could be emulated. It has tremendous impact on me. In the past I also had the good fortune of meeting you.

I and my state of Gujarat are indebted to you for the courage and conviction you showed in saying good words for me and my state. In this show of courage you exhibited commitment to truth and a soldier-like conviction. And because of this your opinion has been universally accepted.

I request you to also bless me that your praise will not make be complacent and commit mistakes.

Your blessings have given me the strength to do what is right and what is good. At the same time my responsibility has also become more. Because of your statement crores of youth would now be having great expectations and therefore even a small mistake of mine will disappoint them. Therefore I have to remain vigilant and I seek your blessings for the same.

Respected Annaji, in this delicate moment, I should say that I come from a simple family and am a common man too. In my family no one is even distantly connected to politics or remains close to power; I do not have illusions that I am a perfect individual. Like a common man I too have my own limitations; good and bad qualities.

I pray that I am always blessed by Mother Jagadamba so that bad qualities do not take possession of me. Always thinking of doing good to Gujarat, I would devote myself to the progress of Gujarat and therefore like to wipe out the tears from the face of the poor. For doing all this I pray that I am never short of your blessings, and this is my humble request.

Respected Annaji, you are a Gandhian and a soldier. Yesterday during election campaign in Kerala when I heard about your blessings for me and my state I feared that you will be subjected to vilification. A certain group inimical to -Gujarat will not let go this opportunity to malign your love, sacrifice, penance and commitment to truth. They will try to tarnish your name because you spoke well of me and my state.

As bad luck would have it this has come true. Once again this inimical forces have come to the fore. On the occasion of Navratri I pray to Maa Jagadamba that no one sullies your fair name.

You will be aware that whosoever talks good of Gujarat he or she will be subjected to the vilification campaign.

In the past a senior Muslim parliamentarian from Canoor constituency hailing from the Communist Party Shri P Abdulla Kutty was ostracized from the party following his praising of Gujarat’s development.

The superstar of this century Shri Amitabh Bachchan when he worked free for Gujarat Tourism was also attacked by this same group of inimical forces. They spread falsehoods against Bachchan so as to snap his old ties with Gujarat. At a public function in Mumbai where Bachchan was invited this group had stopped him from entering.

Also a campaign was let loose to malign the leading Gandhian of Gujarat Shri Gunavant Shah who is speaking for the atma-gaurav of Gujarat.

Maulana Ghulam Vastanavi of Gujarat who was elected as head of the Darul Uloom of Deoband was also subjected to vilification campaign when he praised the development of Gujarat. He had publicly said that Gujarat is surging ahead on the road of fast paced development, and without any religious discrimination everybody was getting the fruits of development. Soon he was silenced by undue harassment by the same forces.

Recently, Major General IS Sinha (sic) of Golden Katara division of Indian Army when he praised the development of Gujarat he too was beleaguered by the same forces and there was even a demand for disciplinary action against the major general.

These are only a few examples. But Gujarat’s real developmental journey is an anathema to this group bent upon heaping calumny on my state. Whenever the name of Gujarat is mentioned these forces immediately swing into action to spread canards and falsehoods.

Respected Annaji, Gujarat’s six crore people do not want that, the same group should sadden you.

I am still afraid that, this group will put you in trouble. May God give you strength.

I humbly bow to the sacrifices and penances you have made for the country. Let God bless you with supreme health so that many like me would be beneficiary of your guidance. This is my heartfelt prayer.

Yours

 (Narendra Modi)

 

 Did Modi get a clean chit from the SIT team?  The answer is both YES and NO.

It depends on which side of the secular fence you belong, who do you want to believe and whose half-truth you trust more. 

In India, the ‘seculars’ even judge the court’s verdict and unfortunately the court often responds to their demand shamefully.

And in India, you can be guilty just because the ‘seculars’ say so.

 

A witness for the persecution

Ravi Shankar Etteth

In the early 14th century, Bertrand de Goth, the archbishop of Bordeaux informed Pope Clement V that the Knights Templars — a religious order of warriors formed in 1119 AD to protect Christian pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem from Muslim marauders — were guilty of blasphemy and sacrilege. Though no proof existed to support the charges apart from confessions obtained through torture — including that of grand master Jacques de Molay — the Templars were found guilty and hundreds of knights were burned at the stake. Narendra Modi has, perhaps, become the modern de Molay. The 600-page SIT report indicts Modi for complicity in the Gujarat riots. But in a bizarre denouement, the SIT also confessed it had no proof to prosecute him.

In democratic India, the partition riots of 1947 baptised the ancient rivalry between Hindus and Muslims with blood; an enmity that began in the decade starting 1010, when Ghazni massacred thousands of non-Muslims.

Post-1947 communal obituaries tell their own story — more than 8,000 recorded deaths between 1953 and 1990 of which 964 occurred in Gujarat alone, according to an Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies report. The majority of these happened during Congress rule: 183 in Ranchi in 1967; 512 in Ahmedabad in 1969; 2,000 in Moradabad in 1980; 146 in Maharashtra in 1984. The biggest ever pogrom in India after 1947 was during 1984 when 2,733 Sikhs were killed by Congress-led mobs. Rajiv Gandhi reportedly explained, “When a big tree falls, the earth shakes.”  

According to a Citizens for Democracy document, “On October 31, Congress party officials provided assailants with voter lists, school registration forms, and ration lists.” So, in retrospect, does this make Rajiv the Modi of 1984? And the Congress, the VHP of the Nineteen Fifties to the Eighties? In the end, it is all politics, stupid. And politics is economics. After Nano found sanctuary in Gujarat, a beaming Ratan Tata embraced Modi in public. Anil Ambani has pledged Rs 50,000 crore as investment in Gujarat. Vibrant Gujarat netted Rs 20.83 lakh crore in MoUs.

It is Gujarat’s economic power that prompted Darul Uloom vice-chancellor, Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi, to declare that “all communities” are prospering in Modi’s Gujarat and there was “no discrimination against the minorities in the state as far as development was concerned.”

In a trial by TV, pop-secularist Javed Akhtar yelled that “everyone” knows what a religious fanatic Modi is. By this yardstick, is corporate India non-secular?

Narendra Modi is the man everyone loves to hate. He is also the man everyone hates to love.

The Hindutva of Development is the Rupee-yatra of late 2000 — Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Himachal follow Gujarat — and aids the development of modern Hindutva. Modinomics threatens Manmohanomics; in this age of scams, spiralling prices and coalition pressures, the Congress party is returning to minority politics as its survival strategy for the next decade.

Analyse this — the minority vote is the heart of India’s secularism; Marxist historian Bipan Chandra, in his book Communalism in Modern India, writes; “Communal tension and riots… did not occur in India on any significant scale till 1946 (472). A clear relationship between communal riots and politics was established for the first time in 1946, when the Muslim League gave its direct action call on August 16, 1946.”

In 2011, the SIT has not been able to establish a clear relationship between Modi and the genocide of 2002, though he has been declared guilty. But Narendra Modi is indeed responsible for the deaths of 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus—morally — because they happened on his watch. The responsibility for 58 deaths of Hindu karsevaks in Godhra also lies with him. The morality of secularism is being put to a macabre test by the politics of opportunism. Meanwhile, the ghosts of Godhra haunt the political subconscious, unpartisan and unavenged.

The author is Executive Editor of this newspaper.

Those who have seen through the design of the India pseudo secular media, know that Narendra Modi does not need any further certification. From sportsmen to filmstars, industrialist to foreign dignitaries,  famous names from many walks of life had already endorsed the Gujarat CM for taking the state to a never before stage of development.

Only people who despise Modi because of his stance that not only is he incorruptible himself but he also does not allow others to indulge in corruption (unlike our esteemed PrimeMinister, trying to hold his head amidst scams all around him) and those who feel insecure by his brand of honest, transparent and focused development, keep on dragging the bogey of the controversial ‘Gujarat Riot’ to try tarnish his image and instigate people against him.

Secularism for me means ”India First”, claims Modi. But that is not enough for the Modi-bashers, including the UPA government.

Totally dumbfounded by the staggering success of the recently concluded Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors Summit, where 7,936 memorandums of understanding (MoUs) for Rs.20,83,000 crore (about $462 billion) worth of projects have been signed in the two-days, it is reported that the finance ministry is asking the nationalised banks not to get involved in the process and better if they keep off.

It is nice to see that educated Muslim leaders are also tired of vote-bank based appeasement policies of the UPA and are giving a call to their community to participate in honest, developmental politics.

 

New Deoband chief lauds Modi’s Gujarat

Yagnesh Mehta, TNN, Jan 19, 2011, 01.31am IST

SURAT: The new Darul Uloom vice-chancellor, Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi, said “all communities” are prospering in Narendra Modi’s Gujarat and there was “no discrimination against the minorities in the state as far as development was concerned.” He was talking to TOI here on Tuesday.India and the fount of the Deobandi thought, which has adherants well beyond the country’s borders, especially in Pakistan and Afghanistan.Darul Uloom chief is seen as a possible change catalyst in this conservative seminary.Deoband chiefhas obviously been impressed by the economic progress of Gujarat. He said, “Development has undoubtedly taken place in Gujarat and we hope it will continue. I ask Muslims to study well. The government is ready to offer jobs (to them), but for that, they need good education.”

This is arguably the most significant endorsement of Modi. Darul Uloom, based in Deoband in Uttar Pradesh, is a leading Islamic seminary in Vastanvi, himself a Gujarati from Surat, is an MBA graduate and has been instrumental in introducing modern subjects in institutions run by Darul Uloom in Gujarat and Maharashtra, including medicine, engineering and allied subjects. His recent election as the

It’s not easy for the man holding this chair to be charitable towards Modi, the person who has been accused of persecuting Muslims during and after the 2002 Gujarat riots. Asked about the riots, Vastanvi didn’t give Modi a clean chit, but stressed that it was now time to move on.

“The issue is almost eight years old now and we should move forward,” Vastanvi told TOI on Tuesday. “Rioting anywhere — in Gujarat or in any other part of the world — is bad for humanity and it should never happen. Gujarat riots were a blemish for India and all culprits should be punished.”

Vastanvi said “there are not as many problems in Gujarat as has been projected.” Asked about justice for the Gujarat riot victims, he said the riots had worsened “because the police did not act due to political pressure during those days”.

But he differed with what many activists working among the riot victims or the UPA government at the Centre claim about continuing discrimination against Muslims in Gujarat. He said, “As far as relief work riot is concerned, it has been carried out very well by government and people of Gujarat.”

The Vastanvi hails from Vastan village near Surat and his initiation into Islamic studies began at a seminary here.

Bad news for Modi – haters and pseudoseculars from all side.

 

SIT clean chit to Modi in riot cases: sources

CNN-IBN

New Delhi: In what could be the biggest relief for the Gujarat chief Minister Narnedra Modi, sources have told CNN-IBN that the Supreme Court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) is likely to give a clean chit to the beleaguered chief minister in the post-Godhra riot cases.

Sources confirm that the SIT has found no direct evidence of Modi’s role in willingly allowing post-Godhra riots. SIT had submitted its status report to the Supreme Court last week.

Zakia Jafri, wife of former Congress MP Ehsaan Jafri, had alleged that Modi had deliberately allowed the rioters to go on a rampage in 2002.

Ehsaan Jafri was killed by the rioters in Gulbarg society after which the Supreme Court had asked the SIT to investigate Zakia’s complaint in April last year.

Modi was then summoned by SIT and grilled for about nine hours in March 2010.

Meanwhile, Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Brinda Karat called the leak of SIT report a shocking incident.

“It is very shocking that from Supreme Court and SIT there is a leakage of this kind. The report was given in a sealed cover by the SIT to the Supreme Court. I believe this is an effort to create an opinion that Narendra Modi is innocent, as far as victims are concerned they certainly see his role. The issue is that how was the report leaked,” said Brinda outside Parliament House in New Delhi on Friday.

 

Teesta in real trouble

December 04, 2010   5:32:20 AM

Abraham Thomas | New Delhi

 

  SC takes serious exception to her writing to UN body on Godhra trial

  Refuses to entertain her plea challenging trial court order on Rais

Social activist Teesta Setalvad faced the ire of the Supreme Court on Thursday for taking her grievances in the ongoing Godhra riot cases before an international human rights agency at a time when the apex court was monitoring the progress of the investigations.

The court was referring to two letters sent by Setalvad’s NGO Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP) to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights based in Geneva as recently as October 5 and October 7 this year.

In another setback to Teesta, the apex court refused to entertain an application where the activist challenged a recent trial court order which directed recording of statement of her former aide Rais Khan. Khan had made sensational allegations against Teesta-tutored witnesses and filed false affidavits in riot cases to mislead the Supreme Court.

Claiming that Khan’s “personal enmity” had led him to turn against her, Setalvad in her application demanded stay of proceedings before the Special Judge hearing the Gulbarga Society trial. On November 3, the Special Judge allowed Khan’s statement to be recorded by the special investigation team (SIT), entrusted with the probe.

The apex court Bench of Justices DK Jain, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam felt that the remedy to challenge the Ahmedabad court’s order was before the Gujarat High Court. “This application is in an ongoing trial. If you are aggrieved, move the appellate authority under the Code of Criminal Procedure. How can we become the appellate authority?” the Bench said.

On the letters addressed by Teesta to the international body, senior advocate and amicus curiae Harish Salve informed the Bench that the SIT was “disturbed” over the constant airing of grievances by Setalvad to the international body. The letters addressed to SIT chairman RK Raghavan had complained about the poor witness protection in the Godhra cases and even contained information of how her former aide Rais Khan was bought over by the other side.

Agreeing with Salve, the Bench remarked, “What business has the international body to know what is happening in our courts…it is very serious as it’s a reflection on us.”

Teesta’s advocate Kamini Jaiswal justified the action which further provoked the Bench. “If you are justifying this, then we have to consider it in a different perspective,” the Bench said.

When Jaiswal said there was nothing wrong in forwarding the letter as CJP was part of an international body, the Bench retorted, “You may be associated with hundreds of organisations…We cannot involve outside agencies to oversee what we are doing.”

When Jaiswal took the plea that the letter apprised the Geneva-based body about need of witness protection, the Bench replied, “Will Switzerland provide you witness protection and not the Supreme Court?”

The Bench posted the matter for December 15 giving time to Teesta to seek instructions after her lawyer feigned ignorance about the contents of the letters.

What annoyed court

  Setalvad’s CJP sent letters to UN Commission on Human Rights in Geneva

  SIT was ‘disturbed’ over constant airing of grievances by Setalvad to international body

  Letters complained about poor witness protection in Godhra cases

  Also contained information of how Rais Khan was allegedly bought over

  On Rais Khan, SC told her to move appellate authority under CrPC

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is in trouble.

A man who is used to be in the news for his pro-Islam, pro-Pakistan stance and his anti Hindu rhetoric suddenly finds himself in the headlines for the wrong reason. Rahul Bhatt, his son is under scanner and is heading for intense interrogation by National Investigation Agency because of his alleged links with the US-based terrorist of Pakistani origin David Coleman Headley.

A person used to accusing others is suddenly finding himself desperate to defend his son now. Upset over reports attributed to security agencies and the Union Home secretary that they have not cleared his son of any wrongdoing in connection with his dealings with terror suspect David Headley, Mahesh Bhatt said that he is hurt and claimed that his son, Rahul is a true and responsible Indian and that his heart is clear and he doesn’t require any clean chit from anyone.

This has certainly been a spoiler to the excitement that he must have felt on being invited by the Pope to Vatican City to discuss ‘global peace’. He and his daughter Pooja are the only Indian artists invited by the Pope, he had boasted. Perhaps the Pope was pleased of his effort in leading the delegation to meet the President on the so called Orissa violence. That part of the global peace process that happened in Orissa, India started after a octagenarian, Hindu Swami, was peacefully gunned down by accomplishes of the religion of peace.

Mahesh Bhatt had lead several such delegations before. Being part of the Indian pseudosecular, intellectual, minority rights activists crowd, he was also found in Mangalore where he was called again to lead a delegation to protect Christians Citizens from Hindu Radicals. “The idea of proselytising is India’s gift to the humankind” he had claimed, thus equating Buddhism’s spread beyond Bharat, by knowledge and wisdom, to the barbaric spread of Christianity and Islam worldwide that had left millions of people dead and still continues to do so.

He, like so many other selective minority rights activists of his kind, however has never been seen in Jammu & Kashmir to stand by the Hindu / Buddhist minority victims of the state, nor has he been ever heard to spend a few words on the plight of the Hindu minorities in the Christian dominated North East of India or the Islamic states of Bangladesh or Pakistan.

His love for Islam and its followers is well documented. He is often seen leading Muslim protests or addressing seminars to defend Islam. When islamic terrorism, SIMI amd Indian Mujaheeddin were ripping apart cities after cities, in serial bomb blasts, his heart was bleeding for the muslims, “Where there is fear, there is no Islam and where there is Islam, there is no fear.” in one such seminar.

Before the last Lok Shabha elections, he advised the Muslims to vote for Congress Party, to defeat communal forces and give strength to secular forces. “I think that this is the secular party and want to do something for Muslims”. A fine example of sick-secularism, indeed!

After the July 2005, suicide bombings in London that left 56 people dead in a bid, he felt the need to show Islam as a religion of peace and planned a movie titled “Suicide Bomber”, to star his son Rahul in the role of a young Asian Muslim planning to trigger the blasts in London. “The movie is inspired by the London bombings and my son will make his film debut by playing the key role of the suicide bomber who is of Asian origin …. I have been researching on the script since the bombings and through the movie I plan to highlight that Islam is a religion of peace and not dreadful as it is perceived by the world, …….I will attempt to bring out the virtues of Islamic living and also show how the state (government) can sometimes be a demon. The film will delve into the heart and mind of a suicide bomber,” he added.

One can at least easily delve into his heart and mind.

I draw a lot of inspiration from the life of Prophet Mohammad, he had once claimed

He was there to play the ‘muslim victim’ card with his nephew, actor Emraan Hashmi, when the latter cried ‘religious discrimination’ while trying to buy a flat, but then had to hastily retreat when a Mumbai social worker accused them of  ‘fomenting communal tensions to gain cheap publicity’.

It is possible that there were some childhood trauma that may have contributed to the strong anti – Hindu feelings that this person, who unfotunately carries the name of Lord Shiva, emanates. Reportedly he officially converted to Islam to marry actress Soni Razdan so that he could keep two wives.

His love and compassion for Pakistan had often crossed limits. He was unhappy about certain movies  being made in India (ex. Gadaar, Sarfarosh) with anti Pakistan messages, claimed that he personally condemned those films which contained excessive anti-Pakistan rhetoric, and was happy to see that such films had failed at the box office.

“Do not point a finger at Pakistan”, he had ranted, reportedly, while giving his reaction to the massacre and mayhem in Mumbai 0n 26/11, to India TV.

Well Mr Bhatt!  It looks like your dream story of Rahul Bhatt as a suicide bomber is getting a realistic touch here. And the fingers that were pointing towards Pakistan could slowly turn to your direction.

Unless, off course, unseen threads are pulled by unknown authorities, we hope to find more on the case in future.
