It started with a report of 5 blasts on the morning of Sunday, July 7. The number changed to 7 blasts, then 9 and at last count it seems 13 bombs were placed at the Mahabodhi temple complex in Bihar. Other TV news reports stated that the bombs weren’t crude but sophisticated IEDs. A few days ago when Nitish Kumar and JDU claimed Ishrat was “Bihar ki Beti” little would he have imagined that he and Bihar would get such a rude awakening. In the normal course any sensible politician would stay far away from anyone even remotely tagged as a terrorist but such is the clamour for Muslim votes that our ‘sickular’ politicians don’t think twice before making silly statements when it comes to Muslims accused of terrorism. Bihar seems to have suddenly become a safe haven for all kinds of criminals from rapists to terrorists. That’s not me saying it but a TOI report clearly points out the systematic penetration of Bihar by potential terrorists and terror suspects to make it a Jihadi hub. From this hub the spokes reach Hyderabad, Delhi and other places for terror attacks. How did Bihar get here?
It’s not just Nitish Kumar but in the last decade every major politician from Bihar has been like a ‘Terrorist-wife’. Like a Mafia-wife! From Lalu Prasad to Ram Vilas Paswan they seem to believe the only way to electoral success is flaunting a terrorist. And like jealous mafia-wives they competed to prove who is better in the race. In return, they want people to vote for them. Take a look at this image from The Telegraph, May 2011:
Pawan paraded an Osama Bin Laden look-alike in 2005 for his election campaign. The guy, Khalid Noor, even had a permanent seat in Paswan’s chopper. Jealous little Lalu couldn’t take it. He stole Osama from Paswan it seems and proudly proclaimed “Paswanji ka Osama Bin Laden mere pas aa gaya”. In a newer version of ‘Deewar’ Amitabh Bachchan could have been given the line: “Tere pas maa hai, mere pas Osama hai’. When CMs and MPs flaunt an internationally wanted terrorist as their mascot it definitely sends a signal to other potential terrorists: “You are welcome here”. Since their break-up with the BJP and to combat Lalu and Paswan for Muslim votes the JDU and Nitish Kumar are sending similar messages with Ishrat Jahan as the mascot. Still, despite the extraordinary credentials of these men, they don’t come anywhere near Digvijaya Singh.
The first time I heard much about Diggy was in the 2003 MP elections. He made a grand, arrogant statement that “election victories are managed”. There is no link available for this statement but I state it from memory. In short, Diggy was suggesting that it wasn’t performance but elections were about “managing”. Oh well, he took the people of MP for fools because they dumped him pretty convincingly. Since then, Diggy has been taking the whole nation for fools. After every terror attack Diggy has regularly thrown a spanner in the works of every terror attack with his stupid statements. The worst has to be his endorsement of 26/11 being an RSS conspiracy with some stupid writer. There is the Batla House encounter which he termed as fake even as it claimed the life of a cop. There isn’t a single terror attack after which he hasn’t pointed fingers at RSS, BJP (Particularly Narendra Modi) and has gone to the extent of claiming RSS was running bomb-making factories.
Of course, our media is no less a mafia-wife. In the many interviews that they frequently have with Diggy, not once have they questioned him on why none of his claims and accusations has ever been backed up with evidence. This guy is a typical shoot and scoot operator. There is his famous screw up of wanting an honourable funeral for “Osamaji”. All his nonsensical utterances have now become legendary jokes. While Diggy (and his party too) goes around calling every opponent communal, fascist and so on I wonder why the media doesn’t call his bluff. His string of glorious BS had to finally come undone. There was nobody screwing him either, he did it himself. After the BodhGaya bomb blasts on July 7 here are some moronic tweets Diggy sent out:
On July 8 Diggy was floating around all TV channels “clarifying” the stupidity in his tweets above. He thought as head of the Congress “dirty tricks department” he could get away with his nonsense again. First tweet: I do not recall media or BJP raking up Myanmar it was done by some “sickular” politicians. Next he drags in Amit Shah and Ram Temple and implies BodhGaya blasts were a consequence of Modi asking Bihar to “teach Nitish a lesson”. Ever heard of a bigger moron with such filthy imagination? And then he asks if there is a connect between Modi’s speech and the blasts. So Diggy was airing sermons like a Mullah but wasn’t “politicising” the terror attack. But his biggest piece of moronery was saved for his second tweet (the one in bottom at left).
“Aren’t they suggesting a Muslim involvement…” asks Diggy! Who did? All media reports, based on initial indications and footprints pointed to the Indian Mujahideen. On what basis was he suggesting Amit Shah, Modi etc. were connected to the blasts without any investigation? Never mind! The bigger blunder of Diggy was to equate the IM with all Muslims. So while he and the entire Congress and the ‘sickular’ claim all Muslims are not terrorists, Diggy is the one equating the IM to all Muslims. This was the tweet I sent out on July 8:
I can’t claim my tweet influenced him but sure as hell the hate-monger-in-chief did a complete U-turn and started sermonising in the media that he wanted everyone to hold their horses till the NIA completed its investigations. Well then, what was the haste for him to rush and blame Modi and everyone else or scream “don’t blame Muslims” when nobody was blaming them? One thing seems clear from the experience of the last decade. For the Congress and Diggy regardless of whether the group is IM, LeT, JuD or any other, it shouldn’t be mentioned because it has Muslim members. This is how both Diggy and his party prove hurdles to any serious investigation and closure of any terror case.
Since the last one week Diggy has been going around warning non-BJP states to be alert for communal riots. I have stated in a recent post that India’s history shows that it’s the Congress that has a record of ‘engineering’ communal riots for political gains. Considering general elections are around the corner I estimate the pitch on communal riots is going to grow louder. But the threat is from the Congress party and not from others. Diggy fools nobody but himself and his bosses. The tweet on the left is from Retributions. Rohit Pradhan is a lot more sympathetic to Congress than I am and he rates Diggy to be among the most communal politicians in India. I will just go ahead and make a small correction to the tweet. Diggy is not “among the most” communal politicians. He IS the MOST communal politician in India and his dirty tricks are the ones that people and states should watch out for.
Footnote: TimesNow reported yesterday that an IB alert on a possible terror attack was sent to Bihar govt as far back as October 2012. These were not even generic alerts but specific alerts. What alert was the “Bihar ki Beti” guy watching all the time? The pic below by Satish Acharya says it all. It’s not just Nitish, this is the same fear that haunts Diggy, Sonia and the entire sickular clan.
