Now, they stole my Voice…


Well, almost. Shameful as I feel, that in a country that boasts of being the largest democracy in the world, with a voluminous constitution complete with a list Fundamental Rights, the most beloved of which is the Right to Freedom of Speech & Expression, in a country who’s National Disease seems to be talking, an elected Government chose to steal my voice.

But this time, the thief was caught. As the sun went down, the theft began. It was caught red-handed, like the proverbial “with its pants down”. The sounds of Chor-chor, scared this thief away, the thief ran, ran for its life, faster than Usain Bolt, by the time the Sun rose again.

This was between 22nd August 2012 night to 23rd August 2012 morning. And for those, who are statistically sharp, yes, this was within a week of 65th Independence Day of India…

While we saved our voice from being stolen, I wondered why did this happen. Why did they try to steal “my precious”?

Events, as they unfolded…

Between July 6, 2012 & July 25, 2012, there was a lot of violence between Bodos & Bagladeshi illegal migrants, in Kokrajhar, Dhubri & Chirang districts of Assam. Governments inaction, both State as well as Central, was annoying, visible and came under heavy criticism. Close to 5 Lakh internally displaced people (IDPs) are said to be living in 278 Relief Camps in Kokrajhar, Dhubri , Chirang & Bongaigaon. In one stroke, IDPs in India, went up from a figure of 5,06,000 to 1 million. India now has 1 Million IDPs, with 2,50,00 or so Kashmiris displaced by Militants, 2,50,000 or so tribals & villagers displaced by Maoist Activities & now, 1,50,000 Bodos displaced by Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants & 3,50,000 Stateless, Illegal, Bangladeshi migrants about whom Indian Govt has no clarity.

It is a fact that Assam Riots between Indians & Bangadeshis of July 2012, went largely unreported in the Press. But, for the very active & feverish discussion and placing of facts & figures on Twitter & other social media, Indians would never have known what their brothers in Assam, within India’s very own boundaries, were going through. People on social media were straightforward in their Reporting. They said it, like it was happening on ground. They said Bangladeshi, when they had to say Bangladeshi, a word mainstream media avoids referring to to sing along with petty politicians who can only maintain power by adding voters artificially, who’s very well-being in India will be dependent on them for a short term.

August 8, 2012, while BJP Leader Shri. L K Advani highlighted the whole matter, Congress President from Italy, Smt. Sonia Gandhi was seen gesticulating to her MPs to somehow create a ruckus and drown the voice of Truth about Assam. Loyal pets were soon barking all around. A seasoned speaker, Mr. Advani allowed them to tire out, rose again & finished his speech.

By evening, a lone MP from a party, which is in existence since 1927, raised an Army to fight Indian Army so that Nizam could merge Hyderabad State with Pakistan, was banned till 1957, after Hyderabad integrated with India in 1948, stood up to speak. He started with a clear underlying judgment that these were not Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants, but Muslims from India. He spoke by the Book. First painted a picture of Victimhood, then demanded more money for relief, declared the riots to be “internal power struggle”, demanded dissolution of BTC as well as recognition of these Bangladeshis as legal Indian citizens, went on for a while and then threatened India, the Central Govt, the Members of Parliament, in the name of a Warning, a Warning of the 3rd Wave of Radicalization. Everyone heard. Everyone peed. Peed in their pants. Fear of violence began gripping the nation. MPs took the speech in their stride.

By August 11, 2012, Raza Academy called a large assembly of Muslims in the name of Protest against “treatment to Muslims in Assam & to Rohingyas in Burma”. Some say 10,000-15,000 people assembled, some say almost 50,000 muslims were present. After most of them had assembled, while speeches and stuff went on, they rioted. Police was beaten. Yes, you heard it right. 90% of injured were Policemen. And when Police started detaining rioters, Commissioner of Police, possibly under strict instruction from Chief Minister & Home Minister of Maharashtra, shouted down the concerned DCP and let the rioter go. In the meanwhile, the fear amongst the public was growing. A riot was threatened on 8th August, a riot was delivered on 11th August. Nobody understood or could logically understand the reason for Riots. The fools were burning their own country down for Foreigners, for Bangladeshis & Burmese. But then Khilafat movement gave enough history for expectation of such a situation and thought process. If Police itself was beaten up, where did common public stand. Neither State Govt. nor Central Govt appeared to be taking tough stand to maintain peace. Everyone looked bent on their knees. Afterall, it was Ramzan time.

By August 16, 2012, the anti-social elements, got strength. In the month of Ramzan, threats were getting issued to people of North-east in many parts of India, especially starting with Banglaore. Or let us rephrase that to “Rumors of threats” were passed to people from North-east India in various parts of India, beginning with those living in Bangalore. Trains were pre-booked. I mean, they were booked before the threat or the rumor was issued. Central Govt that controls railway, was all set to take these people back to North-East. As a precaution, Prime Minister & Home Minister spoke to Chief Minister of Karnataka. Then they let the whole world know that a “rumor of threat” had been issued to the people of North-East, living in Bangalore. Naturally, it added fuel to fire. Now, Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai & Mumbai – all had people of North-East flocking to nearest Railway Station to go home. RSS workers reached stations, tried to convince people to stay back. But worried parents & relatives back home in North-East, along with gripping fear in minds of people, especially with events since July 2012, complete inaction from State or Central Govt in Assam as well as Mumbai, were way too strong for anyone to stay back. Close to 25,000 or so people from North-East are said to have left Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai & Mumbai.

Matter was further politicized. Congress led Central Govt started warning about Rumors & Hate Mongering. Suddenly, the famous Pakistan & ISI came into picture, and it was revealed that no Rohingyas were massacred in Burma, the images circulated were of the Earthquake that occurred in 2011, where Buddhist Monks were engaged in Relief work. Govt warned, and rightly so, that hate & rumor mongering should stop. But then it played foul, out of the blue, it included Social Media in its rants. Yes, Government of India got down to rants and like a powerless man on the streets, started warning social media on a daily basis. Many of us remembered the old Indian saying, “Gehun ke saath ghun bhi pis raha hai”. This went on. We saw no real, on-ground effect till then.

On August 22, 2012, evening, a tweet came saying three people’s account had been ordered to be blocked by Govt. of India. One was a known, controversial, aggressive but Nationalist activist, other two, surprisingly were journalists. There was a buzz. Less than 10-15 minutes later another person put another alarming tweet that Government of India has done us in. Cryptic as it sounded, I called the tweeple on the phone. I was told 16 tweeple had been identified by “IB” and the Ministry of Home Affairs will block these accounts soon. As soon as I heard the 16 names, I knew this was not adding up. I knew most of them. I knew what content they tweeted, what language they tweeted, with whom they usually locked horns. I asked the tweeple to publish the names.

As per agreement, all the 16 names were tweeted. The tweeple was either too scared, not knowing what Govt will do with people who’s accounts are being blocked, the tweets with the names were gone in less than few minutes. The account disappeared.

Half an hour later, Twitter was abuzz with the news of Blocking & those 16 accounts being inaccessible from certain ISPs. There was immediate outrage. The Govt was daring to take away our right to speak, our right to ridicule, our right to discuss what we think is right for the nation we love & wish to serve. On one side was verification exercise to know how far the Govt of India had managed to execute their order to Block these tweeple, on the other was the outrage, the anger that didn’t know where to flow, where to explode.

Some tweeple went silently Black. Some of us screamed, Go Black! One after the other, the DPs on the accounts went Black. Along came the calls for #Emergency2012 & #GoIBlocks. By 2.30am, #Emergency2012 was trending at no.2.

Since other ISPs had not yet blocked those accounts, the situation was that of seeing an injured friend, expected to die due to the blow the Govt has given, hours are passing yet death is nowhere. Solidarity was growing. The hurt was increasing. People screamed at the inability of the Govt of India to even execute its own Block Order, properly & effectively. 8yrs of failure to do something good for the Nation was now showing in failure to do even the bad for the Nation.

In the morning, the screaming on the Social Media was unbearable. There was no silence after the death. There was mayhem of an accident. While a huge no. of DPs had gone Black, #Emergency 2012 & #GoIBlocks were top trends. World knew what was going on. International media also knew what was happening.

By 10am or so, the accounts blocked by few ISPs were visible even on those ISPs. Govt issued denial. They denied ever having even thought of curtailing free speech on Social Media. But tweeple are a resourceful bunch. The 4 letters sent by Ministry of Communication & IT, signed by Subodh Saxena, Director DS-II, were available with most of us. Govt was telling white lies. Govt was ashamed, shamelessly.

On 24th August 2012, Narendra Modi, the most successful & illustrious Chief Minister in India, and, choice of majority of Tweeple for next PM of India, joined the Public campaign. With the lines “…sabko sanmati de bhagwan”, the DP of @narendramodi went Black. More people went Black seeing the best Administrator of India, joining people’s protest.

The chapter is not closed, there’s more expected.


Reflections - But Why?

Tweeple are reflective people. It may be in different degrees for each, but they do reflect.

It was clear from the word go, that Govt. was only cooperating with some people in the media. Out of 16 tweeple, I would say, almost 12-13 have countered & exposed newsmedia, its editors, journalists & owners for the failure to perform their duty properly. Media has been accused of bias, under-reporting, slow-reporting, never-reporting and what not. Radia tapes exposure has revealed too much for journalists to live peacefully or to be trusted by a common man. They are agents of the very people they were supposed to track, screen, expose and make accountable on behalf of the people of the country.

While I know of 5-6 people who engage mediapersons daily on current issues, at least one person maintains a Blog that chronicles the shameful deeds of mediapersons. None of these people is a hate monger. Since they only speak facts and that is the very basis of their counter arguments with the mediapersons, the chance of rumor-mongering is nil.

Then, chance of them figuring in IBs list of security threats is also nil. These people could only be a threat to Newsmedia that has stopped serving the interest of the very people who’s Fundamental Right of Speech & Expression has been extended to protect their very existence.

A day later, of course, the thinking was even more profound. A new online media was launched on 15th August 2012. Since mainstream media was failing the common man miserably, Niti Central was welcomed by all. It was becoming apparent that jealous and insecure mediapersons, along with insecure Congressmen colluded and using the general atmosphere of internal insecurity, propaganda, rumor & hate mongering, decided to use fictitious and rather vague descriptions like “incendiary” content, to block these tweeple.

Another aspect that came to notice is that Social Media was now busy discussing Emergency2012, rather than Rs.1.8 Lakh Cr Coal Scam, Rs. 2.5 Lakh cr Public Distribution Scam, Rs.70 Thousand cr CWG Scam, Rs. 1.76 Lakh cr 2G Scam, Rs. 2 Lakh Cr S-Band Scam, K-G Basin Scam, Rs. 29 Thousand cr ADAG Power Scam, Adarsh Scam, Sugar Scam, Rice Scam, Land Scams of Pawan Kumar Bansal & Jayanti Natrajan in Chandigarh & Tamilnadu, Food-grain rotting Scam worth 50,000tonnes or so Annually, $1.3bn Blackmoney in Swiss Banks, Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants in Assam & rest of India, increasing militancy, the weakening link with Jammu & Kashmir, under-performing intelligence, ill-prepared Indian Armed Forces, unfinished National Highways, poor irrigation & agricultural performance, opulent & vulgar expenses by former President, ever rising inflation, ever-falling value of Indian Rupee, worsening geo-political situation, the weakening relations with International Community, the possible interference of foreign powers in India’s internal affairs, repeated, continuous & blatant contempt of Supreme Court orders, the attack on India’s federal structure, the effort to maim the legislature & judiciary, the list of failures goes on.

More than Rs.20 Lakh cr is alleged to have been robbed by this Govt through the scams listed above, between 2004-2012. And even this is an indicative list of scams that have surfaced, a lot more remains underneath their thick skin.

The most profound idea – They were stealing our Voice

After a lot of thinking, it struck that this Govt has left nothing untouched. They have stolen everything, robbed everything, from Land, to Coal, to Oil, to Power, to Airwaves, to Food, to Games, to Houses…this Govt is now addicted to stealing. It is unsatisfied with whatever it has already stolen, it wants to go on stealing, it wants to steal what none can think of, it tried to steal the Voice of the Common Man.

Asaduddin Owaisi - Khilafat 2.0


On 8th August 2012, India was shocked by the utterances made by one of its members in the Lok Sabha. A warning that looked more like a threat, of radicalization & terrorism, in Muslim Youth in the country. Apart from the regular hullabaloo inside the Parliament, not much was done to avoid or censor this nationally shameful speech. While under Privileges of an MP, this member couldn’t be taken to Court by the citizens, the other members of Parliament simply took this threat & language in their stride, moved on, forgot about this incident and created a bad precedent, which will be very unhealthy in near future of India.

Meet Asaduddin Owaisi, Member of “Indian” Loksabha

A short introduction to Asaduddin Owaisi is necessary.

He is a 2nd term member of Parliament from Hyderabad. He is also the President of the party he represents – All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).

AIMIM was known as MIM in the past and was responsible for raising Razakar Army, to fight Indian Army, so that the then Hyderabad State of Nizam could be merged with Pakistan. After integration of Hyderabad with India, MIM was banned till 1957. After 1957, MIM’s charge was taken over by Owaisi Family and MIM was altered to AIMIM, to assure the nation that they will remain committed to India. How much they remain committed is already out in open.

Asaduddin’s grandfather, Maulana Abdul Wahid Owaisi took charge of MIM to ensure political representation of Hyderabadi Muslims. Later, Asaduddin’s father, Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi, also known as Salar-e-Millat, meaning – Commander of the Community, took charge of MIM. The title ofcourse makes you wonder if this was some sort of an Army they were referring to. Salahuddin Owaisi remained Member of Indian Parliament from 1984 to 2004.

Anyway, back to Asaduddin. He tookover from his father and became member of Indian Parliament in 2004 and again in 2009.

From 2006-07 and again since August 2009, Asaduddin Owaisi is a member of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence.

Since October 2009, he is also a member of Ethics Committee.

In short you have a man here, who’s family took charge of a party charged with Treason till 1957, whose father was Member of Indian Parliament for 6 consecutive terms, who has himself been a member of Indian Parliament for 2 Loksabha terms, was a Member of Andhra Pradesh Assembly for 2 consecutive terms, who has a brother who is member of Andhra Pradesh Assembly for 3 consecutive terms.

With this background, you’d expect a Man who has “firstly” respect for India’s Territorial integrity, doesn’t show a soft corner for illegal intruders from across the borders based on similarity of religious identity, respects Indian Constitution, knows how a Member of Parliament should behave.

Of course, such expectations are rarely met. While Rahul Gandhi is the best example of these expectations not getting met, in the current case, Asaduddin Owaisi fails us.

While his antecedents can be obtained from dear Google, here we will discuss his 8th August 2012 speech inside Loksabha.

The Speech

No, we are not reproducing the entire speech here. But those who have interest in reading his entire speech, they can access it here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/103069473/8th-August-2012-Speech-of-Asaduddin-Owaisi

We will only put the key points Asaduddin made in his speech and analyze every point in as much detail as time permits, because that speech smacked of an Islamic Separatist Movement (ISM).

Owaisi said,

1. All 5 Lakh Displaced persons in over 200 Relief Camps are non-Bodos, majority of whom are Muslims.
2. The relief camps are overcrowded, have bad facilities, warns Govt about imminent death of “waves of children” in coming days
3. The Relief Fund announced by the Prime Minister amounting to Rs.300cr is too less, and that it should be increased to Rs.2000cr.
4. That the clash between Bodos & Bangladeshi illegal migrants is, in Owaisi’s considered opinion, “an internal power struggle”.
5. Disallowing of settlement of Bangladeshi illegal immigrants by Bodos in their Territory, is challenged. Wants dissolution of BTC, wants Memorandum of Settlement on BTC scrapped or else wants territories with less than 50% population of Bodos, excluded from BTC jurisdiction.
6. Militant organizations like DNDSC have semi-automatic weapons which must be seized by the State Govt.
7. Objected to the article of Shri. Harishankar Brahma, Election Commissioner, on Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants & Doubtful Voters in Assam, written in Indian Express on 28th July 2012. http://www.scribd.com/doc/103071208/How-to-Share-Assam
8. Warned Central Government & Members of Parliament that if Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants are not rehabilitated, India will face 3rd Wave of Radicalization amongst Muslim Youths
9. Pointed out that IMDT Act, 1983 should have been applied to whole of India and not just Assam
10. Challenged the country to prove that Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants are indeed Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants
11. Questioned where the Bangladeshi Hindus were gone. While Muslim population of Bangladesh rose from 3cr to 13 cr, why has Hindu population halved to 1.5cr. Implying that those immigrating illegally from Assam were Bangladeshi Hindus & not Muslims.

Now each of this point needs to be understood properly, to know what our esteemed Member of Parliament was trying to say.

1. All 5 Lakh Displaced persons in over 200 Relief Camps are non-Bodos, majority of whom are Muslims.

Mr. Owaisi is either unaware of facts, or is exaggerating facts. Here are the facts, as sourced by a Magazine from Govt of Assam.

a. No. of Relief Camps – 278
b. No. of Bodo Relief Camps – 76
c. No. of Muslims Relief Camps – 200
d. No. of Relief Camps of other Communities – 2
e. No. of Displaced People in Camps – 4,46,110
f. No. of Bodos in Relief Camps – 1,29,712
g. No. of Muslims in Relief Camps – 3,15,876
h. No. of non-Bodo, Non-Muslims - 522
i. No. of districts in which Camps made – 4. Kokrajhar, Chirang, Dhubri, Bongaigaon

This data is valid till August 9, 2012





2. The relief camps are overcrowded, have bad facilities, warns Govt about imminent death of “waves of children” in coming days

Out of 278 Relief Camps, 200 are occupied by Muslims. That is roughly around 1579 Muslim persons in each camp. Bodos have 76 Camps with 1706 people in each camp.

While size of each camp may differ, more or less, Muslim refugees have not been given anything less than the Bodos. Density is higher for Bodo Camps.

3. The Relief Fund announced by the Prime Minister amounting to Rs.300cr is too less, and that it should be increased to Rs.2000cr.


This demand must be viewed cautiously. If you see, while building his argument, Mr. Owaisi has first painted the exaggerated picture of victimization, then, he demands more money using those ground.

Most people know or believe that these are Bangladeshi Muslims not Indian/Assamese. They have illegally infiltrated and Congress hides the fact for its own petty votebank politics. India’s relations with Bangladesh are nothing worth mentioning about or even getting warmed up to. This is a fact, in spite of the fact that it is with India’s help that Bangla population of erstwhile East Pakistan could gain independence from its distant brother Pakistan and the exploitation & ridicule at the hands of Punjabi dominated Pakistani Government.

Those who know the history of Assam, especially with respect to creation of Pakistan, demands & designs of Muslim League, one would also be aware of the contemporary Greater Bangladesh doctrine.

In this light, demand for excessive allocation of funds rings alarm bells. There are various cases that have come to light on how Jehad, Terror or Separatist Movements get funded. And without getting into too much details, prudence is the best policy.

Wikileaks had recently revealed that part funding of 26/11 (of 2008) terror attack in Mumbai was done using cash meant for Haj pilgrims. Government of India spends over Rs.600cr annually on Haj.

In July 2012, a Times of India report revealed, that during investigation of 13/7 (of 2011) multiple blast terror attacks in Mumbai, Police came to understand that terror is also funded by Islamic terror outfits by posing as Riot Victims. The size of funds raised through this tactic is not available, but when someone demands raise of Rs.300cr relief fund to Rs.2000cr, raising of eye brows is only Natural.

On August 19, 2012, it was revealed that Syed Salahuddin of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen was channeling money into Jammu & Kashmir terror & separatist movement using a Charitable organization by the name of Jammu & Kashmir Affectees Relief Fund Trust. Over Rs.100cr had been funneled into the Valley by the time security agencies uncovered this route.

Even in case of terror attacks abroad, in August 2006, Daily Times (Pakistani Newspaper) revealed that UK Plane Bombing was funded by Earthquake Relief Fund. Private organization set abroad, sent funds to extremist organization in the name of Relief Charity…

For those who want to read the news first hand, they can access it here: http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2006\08\12\story_12-8-2006_pg1_1

Not only should Govt be cautious about how funds in Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants infested area of Assam get utilized, it should be even more watchful of private organizations sending Charity Funds for Relief Work.

4. That the clash between Bodos & Bangladeshi illegal migrants is, in Owaisi’s considered opinion, “an internal power struggle”.

This is of course to give the impression that Muslims in this part of Assam are Indian and that indigenous Bodos are indulging in “genocide”. Mr. Owaisi either is unaware or is painting a false picture. Govt may be ignoring the facts on the ground, but all the politics over Foreigners Act 1946 & creation of IMDT Act 1983, and its repeal by Supreme Court in July 2005, give a clear indication that these are Bangladeshi Immigrants.

The November 1998 Report on Illegal Migration in Assam, submitted by Lt. Gen. S K Sinha to President of India is a testimony to the actual gravity of the situation as well as loopholes that are preventing Indian Administration from deporting these known Bangladeshi immigrants.

For those who wish to read the report first hand, they can access it here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/103127679/Illegal-Migration-Into-Assam-Lt-Gen-S-K-Sinha-s-Report-of-1998

In May 1997, the then Home Minister of India, Indrajit Gupta revealed that there were over 10 million illegal Bangladeshi immigrants in India or which 3 million were living in Assam itself.

Even though Hiteshwar Saikia backtracked under pressure, in April 1992, he accepted there were over 3 million Bangladeshis living illegally in Assam.

And Mr. Owaisi should know this clearly, that no alien can engage in Power Struggle with India’s indigenous people without such a struggle being declared a War. There simply can be no acceptance for such a Power Struggle.

5. Disallowing of settlement of Bangladeshi illegal immigrants by Bodos in their Territory, is challenged. Wants dissolution of BTC, wants Memorandum of Settlement on BTC scrapped or else wants territories with less than 50% population of Bodos, excluded from BTC jurisdiction.

This is the most dangerous part of Mr. Owaisi’s speech. Note carefully what he’s saying.

Mr. Owaisi is questioning a the decision of the BTC which is not even random in case of illegal immigrants. He wants to bundle all of the Bangladeshi Immigrants under tenants and Labourer category and offer them protection from being expelled out of India.

The Govt of India brought certain amount of peace to Assam without creating a separate Bodoland, by making certain assurances to the Bodos, with the Govt of Assam as a confirming party. Formation of Bodoland Territorial Council was a key promise, that too as a body with Legislative powers over a territory identified in the Memorandum of Settlement for Bodoland Territorial Council. Mr. Owaisi is instigating the Govt to go back on its words to it people, only so that Mr. Owaisi can have illegal Bangladeshis settled in India.

Next, Mr. Owaisi does the unthinkable. He makes reference to Demographic Dominance. The continued illegal immigration of Bangladeshi Muslim has made Muslim population a dominant one in these Districts. While official figures are never put in public domain, figures uttered by public figures with respect & reliability indicate a 90-95% dominance in Kokrajhar, Dhubri & Chirang regions. Now Mr. Owaisi, uses these achievement, to first have recognition of Bodoland itself scrapped. He says, wherever Bodo population is less than 50%, area should be taken out of BTC’s control. Effectively, that could mean all districts under BTC would have to be taken out.

But our dear Mr. Owaisi, we don’t even recognize these Muslims as Indians. When calculating our population, any addition of these Bangladeshis to our Population will be challenged and opposed. This artificially created demographic change (an old Islamic Separatist Movement strategy) will be defeated.

6. Militant organizations like DNDSC have semi-automatic weapons which must be seized by the State Govt.

First, what is DNDSC? There is no such militant organization. A vague reference to a Christian Congregation – Daughters of our Lady of the Sacred referred as (DNDSC) was found, but we don’t even know if they are even present in Assam. In short, Mr. Owaisi was little nervous and not knowing what he’s talking after he had made certain points above.

Now weapons in the hands of civilians must be controlled, but larger question is, what weapons have illegal Bangladeshis procured.

7. Objected to the article of Shri. Harishankar Brahma, Election Commissioner, on Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants & Doubtful Voters in Assam, written in Indian Express on 28th July 2012.


Mr. Harishankar Brahma has only stated the on-ground real experience. Instead of taking his objections and problems seriously and demanding an investigation of his findings that there are many Bangladeshis in Assam and, therefore, Doubtful Voters, Mr. Owaisi’s problem with the Authority of Mr. Brahma on this subject doesn’t augur well for India. Mr. Owaisi should consider Mr. Brahma a man of integrity, intelligence and authority.

8. Warned Central Government & Members of Parliament that if Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants are not rehabilitated, India will face 3rd Wave of Radicalization amongst Muslim Youths

This point received the maximum coverage. A threat, veiled as Warning was made from inside the Loksabha, to the Central Govt & all the member of Parliament, that another large scale adoption of militant ways by Muslim youths should be expected, if Bangladeshis, FOREIGN MUSLIMS, were no rehabilitated within India.

What is this mentality? Is Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi planning Khilafat 2.0? In 2019, a Centenary of Khilafat Movement will be complete. That means, almost 100yrs back Indian Muslim Leaders created a ruckus in India for matter concerning a Muslim Empire, outside India. That mentality ultimately led to partition of India in 1947. Khilafat is the very seed for Islamic Separatist Movement (ISM). This movement nurtures a mentality that disables a person from co-existing with non-Muslims. Govt of India should clamp down on such streaks of behavior, with an Iron Hand.

Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi and many othes like him, who’s heart beats faster & exclusively for the Humanity that has converted to Islam could try & follow my simple suggestion to them. Organization for Islamic Cooperation should be approached. OIC should be asked to negotiate land/territory with Saudi Arabia (which has a lot of surplus land, is the holy land for Muslims) to settle the Stateless Persons, residing in many countries, including Bangladeshi Muslims in India.

Instead of Burdening India, with their love across borders, all the lovers across borders could come together, and find some territory in the Holy Land.

That said, Privileges Committee should look into what Mr. Owaisi has said inside the Parliament. This is wholly unacceptable. Militancy being professed from the Parliament of India, that too for a cause foreign to Indian National Interest, has to be acted upon in a tough manner.

9. Pointed out that IMDT Act, 1983 should have been applied to whole of India and not just Assam

Mr. Owaisi, all I can tell you is to read the Supreme Court judgment yourself instead of some trainee or a an apprentice. Court has repealed the Act. It declared IMDT Act 1983, ultra vires.

I have a bad feeling that Mr. Owaisi didn’t even know which Supreme Court case was being referred to. This, in spite of him being a Barrister from Lincoln’s Inn. The cases he must read are Sarbananda Sonowal Vs. Union of India, judgment given on 12th July 2005 and Sarbananda Sonowal Vs. Union of India, judgement given in 5th December 2006.

10. Challenged the country to prove that Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants are indeed Bangladeshi Illegal Migrants

What is the meaning of this challenge? The Population records of Kokrajhar, Dhubri, Chirang & Bongaigaon will also speak for themselves. 24% jump in Dhubri in 10years, which shares border on its West with Bangladesh, does drop enough hints for what is going on. We will track these illegal migrants down.

But this challenge does show which side of the fence Mr. Owaisi stands…he should know we are watching.

11. Questioned where the Bangladeshi Hindus were gone. While Muslim population of Bangladesh rose from 3cr to 13 cr, why has Hindu population halved to 1.5cr. Implying that those immigrating illegally from Assam were Bangladeshi Hindus & not Muslims.

What a mischievous mind this is? A leader of Islamic Separatist Movement (ISM) is implying that the well-known massacres of Hindus in Bangladesh are a “myth”. And that, possibly in reality, he drops a subtle hint, these Hindus actually migrated to India and were absorbed by India.

This should give a considerable idea on the intentions of Mr. Owaisi. His less than honest comments throughout the speech, exhibition of confidence that these Bangladeshi Immigrants are actually Indian Muslims, should make one totally doubtful of Mr. Owaisi’s intentions for India.

Asaduddin Owaisi’s membership to Indian Parliament must be reconsidered. The concerned authority must relook at his conduct and ask him to leave the Parliament. His repeated lies, voluntary & exhibited allegiance to a Foreign Nation, issuing of threat & warning of militancy, from inside Parliament are a matter of grave concern. His membership of Ethics Committee must be immediately cancelled.

Something more about AIMIM - Very Serious

I found that AIMIM, Mr. Asaduddin Owaisi’s political outfit has formed a Twitter Handle @majlisedeccan. While browsing through this Twitter handle’s tweets, I came across two extremely objectionable tweets against India & Indian Army and only an enemy of Nation could speak this Language.

On July 7, 2012, AIMIM said on Twitter:




Tweet 1:

“…Terrorist Indian army should be shot dead”

Tweet 2:

“Two terrorist jawan of Indian army shot in J&K. One killed. ”


Can any Indian speak this language? Is AIMIM really a different party or the rebellion of Razakars is still alive? Can the court of law allow a person who rejoices death of Jawans of Indian Army, to go unpunished?

The president of this anti-India party, Asaduddin Owaisi is directly responsible for what his party tweets in public.

Interestingly, as I mentioned at the beginning, Mr. Owaisi is a member of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence. Can such a thing be allowed? Can a man who’s Party wishes death to Indian Army be allowed to be on a Standing Committee on Defence itself?

Conculsion

AIMIM should be banned again & disbanded totally. Members operating Twitter Handle @majlisedeccan, as well as Party President Asaduddin Owaisi should be arrested, tried in Court of Law for treason, and jailed.
