Aam Aadmi Party and it’s Pakiphilia


When we look at the support emanating from Pakistani media, political parties, anti-India activists and groups for Arvind Kejriwal and AAP as well as the recent statements, views, ideologies and background of the core thinkers, policy makers and strategists of  AAP, we find an uncanny similarity. It puzzles me no end that both of these two constituents have a similar view on Kashmir, which is one of the most important issues in India’s integrity, sovereignty, security, external affairs and also political spheres. So when I did some study and went deeper into this puzzle, a Pandora’s Box opened before me. And what prompted me to go deeper was the controversy of the image of a map of India in AAPs official website, which showed parts of Kashmir in Pakistan and at the same time news of ever increasing donations and  support from Pakistan to AAP as well as known India baiters inside India aligning with AAP.  Below is the content of my study based on hard facts presented in a logical sequence.

 

Elections in a democratic country like India would come and go but certain issues related to national security and sovereignty can’t be compromised for the sake of rhetorical vote bank politics. Therefore, it is imperative that important political leaders having national ambition must make their stand clear on such issues, be it inside the parliament or outside it and do not end up benefitting India's adversaries by their irresponsible statements or actions. But one wonders if this act of Aam Aadmi Party of showing parts of Kashmir as part Pakistan was one of folly or a deliberate one. It is observed that Arvind Kejriwal and his group only express their opinion & road map on issues which have a one-sided public view viz., corruption, misgovernance, price rise etc. But they don’t clear their views and road map  on such sensitive issues like Kashmir or Maoist problem, Jihadi terrorism & threat to our nation from forces like IM, SIMI etc., cross boarder terrorism sponsored by Pakistan, India’s foreign policy towards Pakistan, Bangladesh or China, Article 370, uniform civil code etc.,  where opinions are divided but which need a solid stand.  Moreover, the individual known stand of important ideologues, who are part of the Aam Aadmi Party, on issues ranging from Kashmir to Maoism is extremely alarming. For any political party, India's complete integrity and sovereignty should be of top priority. But it is observed that the ideologues of AAP have blatant disregard for India's integrity & security, armed forces & law enforcement agencies in their fight against religious fundamentalists of the Jihadi variety, terrorists & separatists.

 

Arvind Kejriwal is on record wooing disgruntled elements of Muslim community by terming Batla House encounter and the sacrifice of police men like Mohan Chand Sharma as fake. Even after the court proved him wrong, he has not apologized for his blatant distortion of facts and disrespect for honest police officers. Similarly, Kejriwal  termed Ishrat Jahan as innocent, walking the pseudo-secular line but the reality is that not just US court convicted David Headly confirmed that Ishrat was a suicide bomber, but even Yaseen Bhatkal during his interrogation, confessed that she was a member of LeT.  Soon after Ishrat and her 3 accomplishes were killed, LeT had owned up Ishrat, with its Lahore-based mouthpiece 'Ghazwa Times' describing her as an LeT activist & martyr. Infact,  Kejriwal took more interest in Ishrat than his own party's murdered RTI activist Santosh Koli. He never went hard to get a probe done on who killed her. Kejriwal didn’t hesitate to ask for support from well known Bareilly(UP) based cleric Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan, who was arrested for Bareilly riots.  Maulana Khan had also issued fatwa for beheading of Taslima Nasreen and  supported assassination of  US President Bush. Similarly in 2011, he met Imam Bukhari of Delhi’s Jama Masjid for garnering his support. Imam Bukhari has a non bailable warrant on him for over a decade  though no govt. is having the guts to arrest him, alongwith dozens of other criminal cases including for openly calling Islamic Rule in India. I think Kejriwal can't be so naive to not know the nature, ideology and loyalty of such Jihadi hate speech makers but he clearly played sick communal card by meeting and asking for support from these clerics. AAP’s senior founder member Prashant Bhushan called for a referendum on the Indian Army’s presence in Jammu & Kashmir and supports Pakistan’s claim on Kashmir. He also ran a signature campaign for clemency for Afzal Guru, who was convicted with death sentence for 2001 attack on Indian parliament. If the temple of our democracy is attacked by foreign terrorists, supported by local traitors, an open support to them in the form of pardon letter signature is unpardonable in my view. In fact so popular is Prashant Bhushan and India's AAP in Pakistan that the issues raised by him on referendum in J&K gets solidarity across the border. In Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK), the Ministry of Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan has on its webpage an article titled, ‘Listening to the Voice of Aam Aadmi Party in order to hold Plebiscite in Occupied Kashmir is demand of the hour'. The article states that, ‘Ch Muhammad Barjees Tahir, Federal Minister has said that India must give up harping on the tunes of Integral Part and listen to the tunes of Aam Aadmi Party which has demanded plebiscite in occupied Kashmir. He said that voice from inside India in support of referendum is the reflection of common Indian's thinking and is the need of the hour. The shocking aspect of the whole saga is the manner in which Pakistani Government agencies have been trying to portray that what AAP says in India is the thinking of the common man of this country. So, Aam Aadmi Party members are actually projecting themselves as representatives of the common man in India and their controversial anti-national statements are being used by  Pakistan to portray to the world that this is the sentiment of the common man in India.  Prashant Bhushan, meanwhile, went on to demand a referendum on the deployment of security forces in Maoist-affected areas. Not surprisingly, Binayak Sen, found guilty of colluding with Maoists and waging war against India, is a prominent member of the AAP. Sen, a convict now out on bail, is helping AAP make policy decisions. Every Indian should be beware of a party that employs such convicted terrorist sympathisers under the guise of "expertise". Political scientist and psephologist Yogendra Yadav, has a disturbing connection with Naxalite groups.  It is not a coincidence that Kamal Mitra Chenoy, whose biases for Kashmiri separatists, Maoists and similar other anti-national elements are well known, is a leading thinker and policy maker in AAP. He also wants the Left leaders to join the AAP  to  finish their unfinished agenda of the Left movement.

 

People like Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan, Yogendra Yadav, Manish Sisodia, Kamal Mitra Chenoy, Medha Patkar, Sanjay Singh, Shazia Ilmi, Gopal Rai and Dilip Pandey are Indians but only in name. This group is no more than mercenaries whose single-point agenda is to destabilise India and break India into smithereens. This would help forces like American-based Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation, US’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Pakistan dreaded intelligence agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI), and China, to mention only a few, play their nefarious games in the region with utmost ease and destroy Indian culture, civilisation and society. A complete entourage of Naxals from hardcore Sabyasachi Panda and Soni Sori to over ground supporters such as Alok Dixit, Binayak Sen, Kamal Mitra Chenoy and the Jihadi Islamists like Raza Muzaffar Bhatt, Kamal Farooqui, Tauqeer Raza, Rizwan Kaisar have joined the AAP. Kamal Farooqui was thrown out by unarguably the biggest practitioner of the Muslim appeasement in Indian politics – Mulayam Singh Yadav for trying to protect the Indian Mujahideen head Yaseen Bhatkal but the AAP lapped him up without any compunctions. The Party perhaps has every single person who signed Afzal Guru’s clemency petition as its member. There are others like Babu Mathew in AAP ranks, who signed Ajmal Kasab’s mercy petition. Add to this is the vigorous efforts for online fund collection made by Kejriwal’s trusted lieutenant, Shazia Ilmi, during her visit to the Middle East in February, 2014 to enable her party to fight the 2014 general elections.

 

Not for nothing are the Islamists in Pakistan cheering for the Aam Aadmi Party and mobilising funds for it. It is hard to believe that Pakistan, whose very existence depends on enmity towards India and whose state policy is to see the destruction of India -politically, economically, socially and militarily is today supporting and contributing to AAP for a corruption free, secular, developed India with good governance and accountability at every level of governance. It must be a deep conspiracy and certainly they see major gains from AAPs coming to power in India, which will expedite their goal of annexing Kashmir, divide India into many parts in religious lines to complete their unfinished agenda in Hyderabad, Junagarh, UP, Bihar and many others parts?

 

Though it is difficult to identify the sources responsible for nurturing and financing the self-confessed anarchist Kejriwal and his AAP, it will be pertinent to recall that Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott had highlighted in their extensively researched book “The Seige”, that Major Iqbal of the ISI had boasted about planting in India of a super spy agent codenamed “Honeybee” and  that there was a retinue of chuhes (i.e., rats) working for the ISI across India. Till now the Intelligence Bureau is unable to trace and arrest the so-called Honeybee and his or her rats. An alert was, however sounded by the Bureau in January 2014, warning that the ISI and LeT were trying to infiltrate into Indian political parties. In these circumstances, the startling revelations made by Aamna Shahwani in “The Afghanistan Times” on March 4, 2014, certainly point to the urgent requirement of identifying the hidden hand of Pakistan’s Honeybee and has cited more than one proof of the AAP being funded and supported by the ISI of Pakistan. Recently the Washington-based “Association of Indian Muslims of America” issued an “appeal to Indian Muslim citizens and voters to raise funds for and support Aam Aadmi Party” in the upcoming 2014 general elections. Showering praise on the Aam Aadmi Party, it’s press release displayed Kejriwal’s photograph and his famous ‘broom’ to enthuse the Muslim voters. The press release claimed that AAP will help the deprived Muslim community of India escape the police brutality, denial of justice, etc. The ISI and many other spy agencies have been using the methodology of bogus online funding to destabilise nations hostile to them. Several members of the American Indian Muslims Association were in close touch with the ISI of Pakistan through Dr.Ghulam Fai of Kashmiri American Council, who was arrested by the US police in July 2011 on charges of illegal activities and espionage. Interestingly the shadowy Pak agent Dr. Fai was also responsible for getting bogus online funds rolled over by the ISI through online donations for promoting the cause of Kashmiri secessionists. Bogus online funding is a well known trick used for espionage. RSN Singh, a former military intelligence officer who later served in the RAW recently said that the ISI has been funding politicians in India. In the intelligence circles the identity of these politicians are very well known. Has the ISI found new recruits in AAP to destabilize India? Are the services of the ISI & LeT now being obtained to influence vote-bank politics?

 

Is our nation so spineless & irresponsible that anybody can say anything to suit their political need without any accountability? Does Indian democracy give license for senseless behaviour & utterance? Are Kejrial and his group not bartering national security for vote bank politics? This clearly shows that the Aam Aadmi Party is playing a cynical game to tap Muslim angst over terror probes and playing the appeasement card for electoral gains. For them votes are evidently more important than national integrity and security. First by doubting the existence of the terrorist organizations, then by doubting the authenticity of the encounters, and lastly by questioning the accession of Kashmir in India and role of our security forces, they are  aiding & abetting the disruptive forces of terrorism & their sympathisers – thus they are hell bent on demoralizing the security forces & intelligence agencies and thereby endangering the sovereignty & integrity of the nation.

 

Today, India is  fighting on two fronts - one against the corrupt Congress and the other against the anti-national AAP. While the former is plundering the nation, Kejriwal is following the policies of former Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) President Mikhail Gorbachav. Gorbachav too talked of reforming state economy by introducing glasnost ("openness") and perestroika ("restructuring"). He ultimately ended up dividing USSR into many independent states. Pakistan and other enemies have  never accepted India as one nation. Their stand is that India is a country of many nations, and hence is likely to disintegrate one day. Voting for Kejriwal and AAP will surely accelerate this process. Every Nationalist Indian would shudder to even think of this calamity. Every patriotic and nationalist Indian should be aware of these anarchists and nib them in the bud, as they are a threat to our unity, democracy and freedom. Its growth will be disastrous for our nation.
