An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Delhi Terror: Police officer dies, terrorist caught giving interviews to media, and everyone is "innocent"!

The terror situation in India gets weirder by the day!

Delhi Police worked on a confirmed piece of intelligence that the masterminds of Delhi bomb blasts were hold up in a house in Jamia Nagar. Mohan Chand Sharma – a decorated Delhi officer led the assault against them.

They killed one guy Atiq, one was arrested (Mohd. Saif) and two managed to escape – and in the battle the decorated police officer died as well due to bullets in his abdomen, thighs and right arm.

The inspector who was bleeding profusely was rushed to the nearby Holy Family hospital where he was operated upon and later put on life support systems. After battling with his severe injuries for nearly eight hours, he was declared dead at seven in the evening.

Two things after this:

First, Zeeshan, an accomplice of these guys was meanwhile making rounds of the TV channels giving interviews when he was arrested!

I want to really know which News Channel was this? And also what is their policy when it comes to choosing their interviewees? Honestly, this is extremely IMPORTANT! Because even cursory look at the Indian media’s BS makes it obvious that they have become the mouth-pieces of terrorists and extremists.. as we will see in the next point SO CLEARLY!

Now, on the second thing – Atiq had been in the cross-hairs of the intelligence agencies since long! And he was being tracked.

The emergence of this new module of IM which coordinated the attacks with SIMI has surprised investigators since Abu Bashir and Abdus Subhan, a close ally of SIMI chief Safdar Nagori, were described as the brains behind these attacks. But special cell of Delhi Police, working with central intelligence agencies, zeroed on Bashir alias Atiq after the Ahmedabad blasts.

‘‘We had information that Atiq had gone to Ahmedabad from Delhi by train before the blasts, along with 10 persons, and returned to the capital on the day of the blasts with 12,’’ said joint commissioner of police (special cell) Karnal Singh.

The operation in Jamia Nagar was planned after confirmed information from central agencies. So, Atiq dies on the scene as does MC Sharma – a decorated Police Officer!

Now, as if the TV channels had not had enough of interviewing terrorists – they go and interview Raqib, Atiq’s brother.. who incidentally WORKS for a news channel as well. What does he say?

“My brother was never involved in terror activities and was framed by the police. And now he is dead.”

So, the police officer died arresting a good-for-nothing loafer roaming around in Jamia Nagar where two guys thought it was imperative to run away from there? I am amazed that the TV channels EVEN show such kind of nonsense DESPITE the effect it has had on the public and security of the country!

Meanwhile we hear that this guy who was arrested has already confessed to his involvement:

Investigators are on the look out for at least ten people who planted bombs following the “disclosure” by Mohd Saif, who was arrested after a fierce encounter in South Delhi in which two other suspected militants were killed, a senior police official said.

    The TV channel concerned was Headlines Today.This chap, Rahul Kanwal who was presenting the show seemed to have left his grey matter at home. He reminded me of Inspector Clouseau of Pink Panther fame. Another nail in the coffin of the English TV media.What is wrong with these chaps.They seem so excitable. Needless Spin is added to nearly every story by all the channels.Their credibility come down with each passing story and day.

    Thanks, Anonymous! It is amazing but Doordarshan of yore seems like good old days! At least there was a dignity… and when they spoke English it was correct and when they spoke Hindi that was correct as well… and the views were presented by people of the caliber of Tejinder Singh (a CEO) and Ramu Damodaran (an IFS officer)…. people who knew what was what!

    These idiots of today’s media can’t even distinguish their elbow from their back-side… no wonder that the lady who simply presented stories she was fed sitting in a camp far away from the main battle field – Barkha Dutt – became a star at the expense of numerous jawans who died. Now people like her and Rajdeep Sardesai do all they can to make sure such jawans keep dying!

    I am pissed with the American media itself – knowing how half-baked (though seemingly thorough the analysis) the news content is (specially during the Afghan War after 9-11.. and how utterly uselessly presented the Musharraf-Bush antics were).

    I have begun reading “Deception” by Adrian Levy.. and am almost half way done…. it is so devastating that it just blows ones mind! I will write about it when I am done. And the worst thing is that all of us Indians who were following the Pakistani story and the Nuke journey in the 1980s and 90s KNEW all those things with some certainty!

    It is the same now. We are seeing a devastation of our nation right in front of our eyes… and its a race to finish… the one who loses will win. Hopefully those who are fighting to finish us will reach the finish faster than us. There seems to be no other direction or solution now.

    I was pained to see some English channels, tried to present a picture of encounter as “fake”.

    For everyone with common sense, the encounter could not be a fake one, since a Police office died in the encounter, huge cache of arms were recovered and two persons escaped.

    But our media people with their “uncommon sense”, always miss the obvious and go after the hidden things. Unfortunately they don’t realise that they cannot cheat their discerning audience.

    Filth doen’t require any evidence, other than its stink, to prove it is filth. This is what we all know, but not our English Channels.
