Why JNU burns - Shadowy role of fifth columnists & fellow travellers

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 Student  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-têtewith  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 SAR 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 [Source: www.covertwires.com].  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 Jaychand 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].  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 https://asansolnews.wordpress.com.  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.

Somiksha  Mohanta and Nazia Murtad posed the important question whether Arvind  Kejriwal truly deserves the title of Jaychand 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, need 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.
