Yakub's Angels



Read these words: “The blast victims are calling it justice. But look at Bada Qabrastan, and tell me if this looks like closure. Or, the start of something”. That comes from one among thousands who attended the funeral of Yakub Memon, convicted and hanged, on July 30, for the Bombay blasts of 1993. A very large crowd of Muslims mourned Memon. A terrorist was turned into some kind of hero by the media and some 5-star activists. Before we move on, let’s refresh. The serial bomb-blasts were made of 13 bombs placed at crowded locations. It was also the first time many Indians learned about RDX, the deadly explosive. For the record, it was also the first serial bomb-blast across the world. If you read about such an attack today or watched the events on TV, I’m sure your blood would boil enough to seek instant death for the perpetrators. But 22 years later Yakub (one of the key perpetrators) has been turned into some kind of hero for the Sickulars. How did things come to such a pass?

The SC handed out a death sentence to Yakub. This was confirmed in a review petition and the President also rejected his mercy petition in April 2014. Everything was peaceful and forgotten till the Maharashtra govt announced around July 15 that Yakub would be hanged on July 30. All hell broke loose. Suddenly, a host of lawyers, media crooks and hacktivists sprang up from nowhere to seek commutation of death sentence, mercy for his crime and so on. Over 250 so-called “eminent” persons petitioned the President for mercy and this is a small list from The Hindu:

And among the many Rudaalis from Politics, media and other assorted hacktivists who glorify terrorists and seek sympathy for them are the following:

First, many of them claimed the evidence was flawed – FALSE. Then they claimed Yakub had surrendered (Based on some unpublished note of the late RAW officer B.Raman cleverly exploited by Sheela Bhatt of Rediff) so deserved sympathy and not death sentence – FALSE. Then when none of that could be backed by reason, they claimed they were against death penalty in principle. In short, save Yakub by hook or crook even when the SC had gone through his case with a fine tooth-comb. Let’s look at some of the hypocrites where death penalty is concerned. Some of the hacktivists are the same ones who frequently scream “Death to the rapists” after every incident of rape.

Hypocrisy on the issue was flowing like a river during floods. There are many other such hypocrites but I will have to save space and not make this anymore lengthy. From July 28 onward petition after petition was filed by Yakub’s lawyers while another mercy petition was submitted to the President. July 29 evening the SC rejected the final appeal and the President too rejected the mercy petition. Wait! It wasn’t over!

Late in the night the lawyers of Yakub filed another petition at the residence of CJI seeking a 14 day gap to the execution. All frivolous attempts to somehow stall the inevitable. It is commendable that the CJI again convened the court early hours on July 30 to hear the final appeal. This too was rejected. That the CJI and SC gave so much latitude is worthy of applause. This wasn’t a routine bail case – it was a case of a man’s life hanging in the balance and the CJI did the right thing and a splendid job. The ones who failed our judiciary were Yakub’s lawyers, our criminal media and activists.

The lead lawyer for Yakub, Anand Grover, after the final appeal was rejected by SC early morning on July 30 claimed he had no motives for defending Yakub and was doing it pro-bono. However, he blurted out unconsciously that he was doing this “because he was against Modi”. That’s the real long and short of it. All this nonsense was rightly described by the AG, Mukul Rohtagi, as “abuse of process”. Yakub’s lawyers were abusing the process of law which provided them such luxurious latitude. The abuse of law and the process was merely because of political persuasions and not because of any quest for justice. This is something law-makers will have to address to prevent such frivolous burning of midnight oil for an unworthy cause. It is the same with all the media crooks. They too crooned for Yakub only because of their political persuasions – Hatred for Modi and portray him as the person under whom another Muslim would be hanged. Simple! Political hatred and money, of course:

People are not fooled. Almost everyone suspects the lawyers, activists and media have a huge amount of cash-flow from some yet “unknown” sources that promote Islamic extremism and domination. Although the noise was much less then, similar voices started agitating against the hanging of Kasab and Afzal Guru (both were hanged secretly by the previous govt unlike Yakub).

Grover, Yakub’s lawyer, even went on to quote Shekhar Gupta’s stupid argument – that the Home Minister was chasing crooks like Teesta and NGOs instead of preventing attacks like Gurdaspur being one of his motives to defend Yakub. Are you serious? This is one of your stupid motives for defending Yakub? This is truly shameful for a highly placed lawyer because there is no context or connection. All those who defended and wanted mercy for Yakub had no real motive for justice other than their political persuasions and possibly cash-flow. Many activists and media morons went to the extreme of even slamming the SC for being unfair. This, when the SC had stretched itself beyond normal to repeatedly hear petitions for Yakub way into the early hours of July 30 and stretching the legal process for a terrorist that would never be done for other ordinary persons. Here’s Indira Jaising, a defender of Teesta (and wife of Anand Grover) mercilessly slamming the SC. Shameful conduct!

And it went on and on and on till the final hammer of SC came down on the appeals around 5am on July 30. “The defence never rests” and it never should is what I consider one my best articles. But stretching it to frivolous levels is not defence but abuse of process motivated by political persuasions and perhaps truckloads of money. Rudaali-in-Chief Barkha Dutt stayed up all night and when the inevitable happened, she rushed to Mumbai to meet victims of Yakub and the 1993 blasts and scavenge on their misery. One way or another feed on the wounds of any kind. That’s our media. And, of course, I have even heard stupid questions like whether hanging Yakub would deter anything. Here’s one sample of such stupidity:

There have been many train bombings in Mumbai since 1993. There have been many terrorist attacks since 1993, thousands have died. Each time the Rudaalis demand sparing the terrorist as it doesn’t deter further such acts. The media glorifies terrorists and some Track-2 media idiots also hobnob with ISI operatives in Pakistan in multiple visits. This is downright illogical stupidity. There are laws and punishment for rapes, thefts and murders – Do such laws or punishments deter such crimes at all? Laws and punishments are no deterrent for “evil” that resides within some men and women. There is no cure for that. Most people would have had no problems had Yakub Memon’s sentence been commuted to life instead of death. But the severe chest-beating by all these crooks only made the public angrier. As against petitions to the President for mercy, some victims also started petitions to the President for death to Yakub. I estimated many in the public wanted death for Yakub not so much because they wanted him dead but because they hold these chest-beaters and terrorist-sympathisers in greater contempt.

There are many more media houses but I have named only a few due to text limits. Life sentence is sometimes worse than death. As Mr Red so philosophically says in “Shawshank” – “They send you here for life, and that's exactly what they take away”.

Either way, those sympathising with a criminal like Yakub are no less criminals (I don’t include his defence lawyers in this). There are other reasons for death sentence. India has paid a heavy price in the past. Most people remember the hijacking of IC814 in December 1999 when we succumbed and released three extreme terrorists who have now set up new terror outfits in Pakistan. There’s the case of Maqbool Butt who wasn’t executed and an Indian diplomat in London was kidnapped and murdered – IndiraG later approved the hanging of Butt (read here). And all those hypocrites who claim to be against death penalty in principle remained absolutely silent when India (under UPA) voted in the UN against its abolishment. I don’t suggest India should have gone with the UN proposal but these campaigners remained silent, including the happy-tongue-hypocrite Shashi Tharoor. Terrorists may kill one of a family only once but our media and activists kill the victims’ families over and over again.

Defence lawyers plead for proper process and proper administration of justice for the criminal. If at all the media or activists campaign for anything it should be for justice for the victims. It is the opposite in India and the reason is very simple – POLITICS & MONEY! And just how well do Yakub’s Angels look after him? Here’s the Indian Express (one among many) who grandly splashed his funeral on the front page:

And the headline says “THEY” hanged him? Who the hell is THEY? The Hindus? The BJP? A wretched country called India? Or The President of India and our judiciary? Yakub’s death was merited by the law and not some individual, group or entity. Such extreme filth to honour a criminal and a terrorist! Naturally, more and more terrorists will rejoice the support they find in our media and with criminal activists. The popular president, Dr. Kalam’s funeral is consigned to a column on the margin. And even there IE displays its filthy political pursuit – the PM was there so too other senior ministers, but their grand choice of a pic at the funeral is the worthless juvenile retard that does nothing for India and is mostly abroad. Now you know who the entities IE and other media house bat for! Naturally, it emboldens terrorists to issue more threats as a friend of Yakub did:

A coward sits in a hole in some foreign country. He issues threats to India because he has support from our media and criminal activists. He knows he has great support with these anti-nationals and our fake intellectuals. Parties like CPM and CPI want the death penalty abolished – guys who have murder as their political policy. There are Rudaalis like Kavita Krishnan who hold candle vigils for terrorists while her party too (CPI-ML) and associated Naxals slaughter people as a routine. Yakub Memon acknowledges guilt and seeks forgiveness while these little terror-supporters bat for him. But more than all that GOI must start acting against internal unarmed terrorists who pass as Yakub’s angels in our media and NGOs. They aren’t holed out abroad, these traitors are right here amongst us. These are sleeper cells that are angels for terrorists.

Stratfor Shekhar



Some cricketers like Sreesanth and Chandilya were arrested in the IPL betting case and were in jail for a few days before they got bail. They seem to have been recently vindicated and may return to the game. In contrast, look at how our media and courts deal with a fraud-accused like Teesta Setalvad. I did not comment on the CBI court declining her anticipatory bail because I suspected the Bombay HC will come to her rescue. But she’s a “victim”. Earlier when a court cancelled her bail a battery of lawyers held a “Dial-a-bail” video conference with the Supreme Court to get her bail in the late evening. But she’s a poor “victim”.

When the CBI court rejected her bail she claimed she was a victim of hate and vendetta. Some of her funders are convicted criminals like SantSingh Chatwal. Sant who? He’s the New York hotelier who was awarded a Padma Bhushan in January 2010 by the Congress govt. And then there is Ford Foundation and many others. All these guys were moved to tears by Teesta’s fight for justice. Let us leave it at that. That she was fraudulently funded with help by the Congress is not a big secret. The money trail also makes fantastic reading. I am not going to waste time repeating what is already in the public domain.  For Teesta when courts vindicate Modi it’s not acceptable but when courts slam her she’s being penalised for a petty crime:

Now, in my previous post (Teesta Rudalis) I mentioned all the crooks in the media gathered to mourn her tragedy and situation. Of course, the reason is simple – a conviction of Teesta is an indirect conviction of these crooks who fed on her filth to target political opponents. But it is one particular hypocritical moron who has been screaming his lungs out as if a great disaster has befallen a poor woman who has been working hard for justice. Here’s “Wheeler Dealer” Shekhar Gupta:

Not just SG but all our media crooks danced at the fake cases against Amit Shah. I don’t think people have forgotten the war-dance of Sreenivasan Jain. Never mind! I got curious on why this SG is so agitated against legal prosecution of what are evidently fraudulent financial transactions by Teesta. He calls it mere accounting issues:

So called foolish editors who claim to be experts from finance to “Bahubali” appear to have learned nothing from history. All it took to start off a serious investigation into the greatest political scandal of the 20th century was this – A donation-cheque of $25000 issued to the Republican National Committee to re-elect Nixon, instead of being deposited into the RNC bank account, was endorsed to a Watergate burglar. That was followed by the famous Deep Throat quote: “Follow the money”! Did Shekhar Gupta ever learn this? Does he remember that it was an ordinary endorsement of a cheque to a burglar that finally led to the resignation of a US president? No, obviously not. So why is this “wheeler-dealer” so vocally defending the financial crimes of some political activist like Teesta? What’s his stake? And he even goes on to say CBI is hounding Teesta for some crap like Tampons and stuff:

(By the way, this is the same hypocrite SG who ranted about Kiran Bedi fudging some travel bills to benefit her NGO rather than personal enrichment and considers Teesta’s frauds an accounting issue). And here’s the beauty about Ford Foundation:

Okay SG! Did you ever ask SoniaG how she allowed FF to operate in India then? CBI hounds people for buying tampons and silly love stories with donation money? That’s the intelligence of our so-called editors. Firstly, many disagree, but I am absolutely clear that Teesta is an anti-national and is a threat to national security. Here’s why:

Teesta took the Gujarat riots issue to politicise it internationally. She took it to the Geneva Human Rights Organisation when the matter was already in our courts. What were her motives if not to tarnish the image of India and our courts (other than her political motives for Congress against Modi)? The Supreme Court rightly warned her "You seem to have more faith in foreign organisations than this court. It seems that witnesses would be protected by these organisations," the bench remarked adding that if such letters are written then the court would pass the order without hearing the contentions of the CJP… If you send such letters then we would hear the amicus curie and pass the order (without hearing you)," the court said adding, "All the cases are being monitored by us, we don't like any correspondence of her with foreign agencies". Not an anti-national act? Not for SG, I suppose.

Next, Teesta testifies with the US Commission on religious freedoms (some US based groups against Modi organised this nonsense). You testify with a US commission for your political persuasions and motives? Who else had she talked to and is still talking to? And she LIED even that to that Commission. The fraud that she is, she claims riots happened in Gujarat only since 1998 when BJP came to power. Any idiot (even a fool like Shekhar Gupta would know) that Gujarat has a history of riots – the worst being 1969 and 1985 under Congress rule. This fraudulent liar is who our media Rudaalis claim is a poor victim?

So I had to ask myself the question – Why is SG so agitated about a petty thief like Teesta and political foot-soldier? What is his obsession in whining for her? That reminded me of an old article I had written on this blog – Commie media’s anti-Hindu poison. I recollected the name STRATFOR because I had quoted an article by that organisation in that post. Then it struck me why SG’s tampons are in a twist over this self-confessed petty offender like Teesta. So I posted this tweet asking the question:

When I first wrote about Stratfor and SG being the only contact they had in India, it was written in a different context and a different topic. Now the question that crosses my mind is in the tweet above – Does SG too have tampons to hide in his closet? He has never denied his links with Stratfor. All these agenda-morons who pass for editors often write a lot of stuff in their short resume in Opeds and articles – “Editor for IE, formerly with HT, Rhodes scholar, Eminent political observer” and so on. I have never once seen SG or any media house ever mentioning his being a worker for Stratfor. Obviously, I have to assume, SG is not a social “worker” (like Teesta?) who would do things for free for groups like Stratfor. Would he? And now that I recalled it – this Stratfor is far more sinister it appears. It has links to CIA, it spied on the Bhopal Gas activists to provide information to Dow Chemicals for protective measures. All this went on without the knowledge of SG?

Nobody in the media or the then GOI asked any questions to SG about this sinister organisation. But why would the Congress ask any questions to SG anyway? After all, this “wheeler dealer” was “Doctoring & Nursing” the Congress when it was evidently dying. There is something more alarming in the report that was based on the Wikileaks:

A mix of covert and overt informants? Makes me assume SG had to be a covert operator since he has never disclosed it anywhere (till Wikileaks blew the lid) as far as I know and I am open to correction if someone can provide me such information on his disclosure. And the operators were being paid via Swiss banks and prepaid credit cards? Interesting! So let me understand this from some expert – If I get a payment through a Swiss bank where would that be reflected? If it were me – it would be reflected in my normal Indian bank account. But here’s another thing – operators were also paid by “Prepaid credit cards” – which means it will not be reflected anywhere in any account of mine. Clever operation; eh? And SG was also ignorant of Hamid Gul of ISI being a member of Stratfor? Extraordinary! You can read the full article at Hardnews.

Like I said in my post “Teesta Rudalis”, all those whining for her appear to be worried investigating her may reveal a lot more on our media pimps who dismiss her frauds as “petty offences”. In December 2014 Caravan Magazine ran an article on the phenomenal wealth acquired by SG. Let us assume all that is legitimate – after all SG is an expert in “accounting” but there are other questions he must answer. What was his role with Stratfor? Did they pay him? And why is he called a “Wheeler Dealer” in the Capital? Maybe the GOI should look into all this with a fine tooth-comb. Deep Throat left us with his wisdom for eternity – “Follow the money”.

Teesta Rudaalis



“Just in case we forget this same Teesta in a way justified the Godhra burning of 59 Hindus with this comment on the day of the incident:  "While I condemn today's gruesome attack, you cannot pick up an incident in isolation. Let us not forget the provocation. These people were not going for a benign assembly. They were indulging in blatant and unlawful mobilization to build a temple and deliberately provoke the Muslims in India." So because they Hindus were assembling for the temple the Muslims were provoked and were justified in the burning of people. It is such sick logic that results in the kind of backlash that Godhra brought about”.

That is what I wrote in “Hasta La Teesta.. Baby” in my epitaph to one of the most communal, hate-mongering woman I have ever seen in the public domain. When the Bombay HC lifted the stay on her arrest all the top lawyers of Congress rushed to the SC to get her bail over phone calls and video conferencing. That the woman is so important to Congress signifies her misdeeds over the past 13 years. Her financial misdeeds are now in the public domain so we need not go into all that again. What should shock us is that till the other day our media criminals were screaming CBI, CBI, CBI over the Vyapam scam. But they have problems with CBI acting against Teesta Setalvad. First, let’s see some responses to the CBI raid on Teesta’s home and offices on July 14. Here’s Sreenivasan Jain, Con-Journo par excellence:

Make a good note. Jain argues that it is mere “financial impropriety” so the action by CBI is heavy handed. So these crooks in the media will decide what is heavy handed and when CBI should raid or not raid on so on. Barkha Dutt reflected the same opinion of this moron – financial irregularities. And she drags in that Sickular Amitav Ghosh (who didn’t want Modi as PM) to comment on the issue while interviewing him:

And she wonders if it needs day long raids by CBI as a quote from Ghosh. These guys will decide how long CBI should raid a person, how many places and so on. As if the duration of the raid determines if it’s genuine or vendetta. To defend their pet criminals these Sickulars will put forward all the dumbest arguments. And Amitav Ghosh is supposedly a public intellectual. Yes indeed; one of many of India’s intellectual morons. Okay! Now remember, this is the same Jain who danced all over when CBI filed bogus cases against Amit Shah:

I remember Jain ranting Blackbeard-Whitebeard to implicate both Amit Shah and NaMo. He also came up with a fantastic argument at that time – that Ishrat Jehan and Co had merely come to Gujarat for some “Chota Mota blasts”. So, to these media criminals Chota-Mota blasts are acceptable as long as they are Muslims. Fine! Of course, there is that Wheeler-Dealer of Lutyens – Shekhar Gupta, who once dismissed cases against Teesta as mere “accounting errors”. I am sure Gupta has many such accounting errors in his accounts and therefore can appreciate Teesta’s situation. Here’s what the guy tweeted:

Teesta is being crushed? What kind of moronic argument is that? She is protected by the highest court of the land in a flash like no one has ever been before. This Gupta did not once talk or write about the crimes of Teesta or her swindling and he claims he had arguments with her. What arguments? On the options of whether Modi should be killed or jailed? Let’s not forget, there’s that eternal C5M bimbo Sagarika who came up with a fantastic defence:

Teesta is a bridge builder? Like what? Like Pappu wanted to build a bridge between Bundelkhand and the USA? Such are the moronic utterances of these Rudaalis. Truth is, each one of them knows they are on the wrong foot and are lying through their teeth. But all of them have bathed in the left over dirty water from Teesta’s bathtub and have to defend her in some way or the other. This means even vaguely claiming they had differences with her. Media-scoundrels of the first order! So what’s the real problem?

It must be noted that Teesta was funded by Congress and CPM to campaign against BJP in LS2004 elections and also later against NaMo after the 2002 riots. How did Ford Foundation suddenly find interest in the Teesta couple? Surely, FF doesn’t come knocking at the doors of a political NGO unless the political bosses put in a good word. And you know well who put in that good word to carry out the campaign against NaMo. And is it all just financial irregularity? If that were the case then CBI need not have been involved at all. Local investigating agencies and ED could have imposed some fines and settled it. But that is hardly the case with Teesta.

First of all, why did the CBI have to get involved at all? If Teesta had cooperated with the Gujarat police in investigations and provided documents then there would have been no need for CBI at all. But Teesta dodged the Gujarat police for years. She is an “Inter-state” crime-accused. She commits her crimes in Gujarat and hides in her hole in Mumbai where Gujarat police do not have jurisdiction. She files petitions in Mumbai HC to dodge Gujarat police. And that is the reason CBI had to be involved since they have national jurisdiction.

And what are the many crimes of Teesta? According to the SIT on Gujarat2002, she had filed many fake affidavits from those claiming to be victims of the riots. The Naroda residents have claimed she defrauded them. FCRA violations or mere financial irregularities are quite different from defrauding the public. Our media criminals refuse to recognise this. And the Sickular Commies from media and politics have also organised a grand protest for Teesta over what they call “harassment”:

The motive for all these Teesta Rudaalis is simple: If Teesta is indicted and later found guilty by a court then they all will stand guilty of carrying out the most vicious and malicious campaign against one man based on lies, fraudulent documents and fraudulent transfer and misuse of funds. All of them have used Teesta as their frontline foot-soldier in their political campaign. Teesta even led Zakia Jaffri up a garden path to target Modi and Modi alone and the old lady is now left in tatters wondering if she got justice. All of these Teesta Rudaalis have scavenged on the death and misery of the riot victims and their familes. Their chest-beating and wailing has only started now. Let them mourn
