Talib Hussain & Riyaz Attari: Opposition Party Congress has now become aggressive over the alleged connection of the arrested accused in Udaipur’s Kanhaiya murder case and the arrested LeT terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). On the streets of the national capital Delhi, the Youth Congress has put up big posters with pictures of both the accused, questioning whether “this is BJP’s nationalism or terrorism”? At the same time, party spokesperson Pawan Khera has also surrounded the party which is in power in the country by holding a press conference.
Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera has said that two incidents that took place in the last one week have exposed the tricks, character and face of BJP. He said that earlier one of the accused involved in the Udaipur massacre turned out to be a BJP worker. After that, one of the two Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists caught in Jammu and Kashmir, Talib Hussain Shah turned out to be an office-bearer of BJP. Pawan Khera claimed that Talib even had a picture with the Home Minister of the country. When he was caught, he was planning an attack on the pilgrims going for the holy Amarnath Yatra.
Attacking the BJP, he said that there is a relationship with terrorists, what is this relationship called. Congress spokesperson said, Is it not a matter of shame for those who talk of nationalism? This is not the first or second time that BJP leaders or workers have been found indulging in terrorist activities. There are many such incidents. He said that two years ago also a similar case had come to the fore in Jammu and Kashmir when former BJP leader and Sarpanch Tariq Ahmed Mir was arrested for providing arms to terrorists.
Pawan Khera said that Ahmed was accused of giving arms to Hizbul commander Naved Babu, who was arrested along with DSP Devinder Singh, who helped the terrorists. He said that the NIA had also clearly said that Tariq is an aide of Devinder Singh. If Devinder Singh’s case was investigated properly, everything would have clear but then the investigation was stopped midway. The Congress spokesperson also referred to the bust of illegal telephone exchange in Madhya Pradesh and said that one of the 11 ISI suspects arrested then, Dhruv Saxena, was a member of the BJP IT cell.
He also said that in Madhya Pradesh itself, Bajrang Dal leader Balram Singh was arrested in the case of terror funding. In the year 2017, a special NIA court sentenced BJP leader from Assam, Niranjan Hojai, to life imprisonment in the case of financial aid to terrorists. Pawan Khera said that Niranj Hojai was found guilty in the case of financial scam and terror funding of one thousand crore rupees. He said that with the money received from Niranjan’s funding, terrorists used to buy weapons which were used against the security personnel engaged in the service of the country.
Congress spokesperson Pawan Kheda alleged that the BJP did not even fail to give a ticket to a convicted terrorist for power. He claimed that the BJP had given ticket to Masood Azhar’s close aide Mohd Farooq Khan from ward number 33 of Srinagar in the civic polls. Pawan Khera claimed that Farooq was also associated with Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.
He accused the BJP of playing the game of destroying the country under the guise of nationalism. Pawan Khera said Nupur Sharma also of your party and Riyaz Attari also of your party? Talib Hussain also of your party? Taking a direct attack on the BJP, he asked how many such fringes you have got yourself to be in the mainstream?
