The weft and warp of the JNU plot

“Facts don’t cease to exist because they are ignored” - Aldous Huxley            


For the last fifteen years the left-oriented academia of Jawaharlal Nehru University have been actively promoting and propagating divisive politics aimed at the balkanization of India. The Marxism-infected teachers and ultra-leftist parties like the All India Students Association (AISA), Democratic Students Union (DSU) and All India Students Federation (AISF) have been fuelling the fire of divisive religious identity and caste-based politics in an unabashed manner. 


Divisive and communal politics of Leftists


Though in theory Marxists debunk religion and berate caste-based politics, in practice they have been following the strategy of crass opportunism in pursuit of their power-grabbing ambition. They openly embrace the communal agenda of minorities and align with regional outfits like the Samajwadi Party, Janata Dal United, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Hurriyet, et al, and espouse their cause.


The lionizing of the killers of 76 CRPF Jawans in 2010, the communal-coloured support of the beef festival and encouraging glorification of Mahishasur in JNU by the leftist cabal were patently anti-national activities of a provocative nature.


The organizing of a pro-Afzal Guru rally in the Jawaharlal Nehru University on 9 February 2016 was a logical consequence of the tightening grip of Marxists and ultra-Islamic aides embedded in this educational institution. Kanhaiya Kumar (AISF), Umar Khalid (DSU), supported by Shehla Rashid Shora (AISA), were prominent organisers of the anti-national function, deceptively called a poetry-reading session.


Here, seditious slogans lauding ‘Bharat Ki Barbadi’, ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Nara-e-Takbeer Allah-hu Akbar’ were raised, for which Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested while Umar Khalid and others are absconding. (They have since surfaced on the JNU campus, midnight of Feb 21-22, to gleeful reception by friendly news media).


Preliminary investigations have revealed that Umar Khalid, son of a prominent leader of SIMI (before the outfit was banned) had made 800 calls during a span of 8/9 days, including many to Kashmir, Bangladesh and Gulf countries. He had visited a number of universities and wanted to organize anti-national functions in 18 varsities.


Heady brew of Communism and Islamism


During the Congress-led UPA rule, the JNU morphed into a weird educational centre dispensing a heady mix of communism and Islamism to innocent students of impressionable age. A classic example of the Janus like strategy is the dubious conduct of the JNUSU vice president, Comrade Shehla Rashid Shora. Despite being a leading light of the AISA of ‘Lal Salam’ fame, she had conveyed greetings to the varsity’s Muslim students on the birthday of Prophet Muhammad in the year 2013. She shot into fame among Muslim students with that gesture showing her deep commitment to Islam.

After the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar, Shora tightened her grip by addressing a gathering of 3,000 students on 14 February 2016, which culminated in a protest march. A 14-minute clip of her provocative speech was widely circulated on social media sites. According to an AISA watcher, Shehla has emerged a fiery modern speaker who is likely to outmatch the razor-sharp outpourings of Asiya Andrabi of Dukhtran-e-Millat, minus Andrabi’s black veil.


Role of 25,000 Wahhabi mullahs visiting India


Unfortunately, our secularism-doped analysts and committed column writers ignore the fact that the fifth columnists and fellow travellers of Pakistan have successfully laid a comprehensive siege on India. During the UPA regime, led by the ‘Muslims-Firster’ Dr Manmohan Singh, several Islamic outfits were allowed to spread the poison of secessionist ideology.


A classic example of deliberately encouraging radicalization of Muslims was the decision to allow nearly 25 thousand Wahhabi ulemas and preachers from West Asia to visit India in the year 2013. In a secret note to the Central Government, the Intelligence Bureau had highlighted that 25,000 Islamic scholars from 20 countries had gone around eight Indian states, namely Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Bihar, Maharashtra and Jharkhand. They were allowed to address nearly 12 lakh Muslim youth studying in 7000 registered madrasas and preach hardline Islamic doctrines. Their avowed goal was to spread hatred against kaffirs (read Hindus) and motivate the faithful for implementing Sharia law in India. 


It is alleged that some pro-Islamist teachers and students from a few universities and colleges met the visiting Islamic preachers to exchange notes. Some of them reportedly came from the Kashmir valley. It needs to be investigated whether anyone from the JNU had met and communicated with the radical ulemas from West Asia.


ISI’s spy nests in India


In early 2004, a Mumbai-based strategic think tank, chaired by Sundeep Waslekar, published a book titled, ‘Cost of Conflict Between India and Pakistan’, giving details of the activities of the Inter-Services Intelligence of Pakistan in India - largely managed and monitored through thousands of madrasas (i.e., Islamic seminaries) spread across various States. Waslekar’s research highlighted several sinister aspects of the fast-rising network of spies planted across India by Pakistan to subvert and destroy the Indian nation (read the Hindu identity of India).  It drew attention to the virulent anti-national preachings in most Indian madrasas, encouraged by Pakistani agents. Waslekar’s study contained useful details of the ISI activities, presumably culled from a leaked secret official White Paper allegedly prepared during the tenure of LK Advani who was Home Minister throughout the tenure of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).  


Mysteriously, the so-called ‘white paper’, originally tom-tommed by LK Advani as a great expose of the rising crescendo of the ISI’s footprints in India, never saw the light of day. A fairly reliable source disclosed that one important reason for not publishing the ‘White Paper on the Inter-Services Intelligence of Pakistan’ was fear of losing Muslim votes which Advani hoped to garner. According to the Lutyens rumour mills, the former Home Minister was allegedly warned by a left-oriented adviser about the adverse fallout on Muslim voters if the proposed White Paper was made public. 


Mind-boggling sweep of ISI spy nests in India


According to Waslekar, by the end of 2004 itself, the ISI had spread its tentacles all over India by establishing 60 spying centres across the country in which nearly 10,000 spies were employed. Most of the ISI operatives were Indians. As many as nine States, namely Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Jharkhand were actively flooded by the ISI modules. By accident or design, the 25,000 Maulanas from West Asia visiting India in 2013 largely focussed on madrasas in these nine States. Waslekar has explained how an effective network of radicalization through Islamic seminaries has been spread across the country, and to date, his is the most informative narrative of ISI activities across India.  


The latest discovery about a super spy codenamed ‘Honeybee,’ planted in India by the ISI, has given a new twist to the narrative of  pro-Pakistani fifth columnists and fellow-travellers in India. The news that a super-spy, Honeybee, aided by a retinue of ‘chuhe’ (rats), is operating in India was broken by Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott-Clarke in their scholarly book, The Seige. Strangely, the boast of Major Iqbal of the ISI about the cleverly planted Honeybee, highlighted two years ago by Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott-Clarke, did not receive serious notice from Indian intelligence agencies. The name of the same Major Iqbal figured prominently in the deposition made by David Headley in the second week of February 2016 before Justice G.A. Sanap of the Maharashtra Special Court.


Going by Waslekar’s well-researched assessment of 2004, the number of active ISI-planted espionage centres in India has more than doubled, while the funds allocated for espionage across India have been increased five-fold by Pakistan. The well-organised mini-rebellions in the JNU and Jadavpur Universities emphasise the need to ascertain whether the has succeeded in setting up spy nests in some Indian Universities also.  


Battalions of fifth columnists visible across India


An associate of Yasin Bhatkal, Danish Ansari, had admitted in a statement that in 2010,   Yasin Bhatkal had told him that approximately 33,000 mujahideen had been recruited by him all over India and that his close confidante, Waqas, was the outfit’s expert bomb-maker [1]. The statement was recorded under Section 164 Cr.P.C. before a Magistrate by the National Investigation Agency. Yasin Bhatkal further added that the Indian Mujahideen proposed to take over India, but were handicapped by shortage of weapons. 


If Bhatkal’s disclosure is true, his 33,000 jihadis constitute a major internal threat to our national security [2]. To these we may add the 25,000 traitors who applauded Akbaruddin Owaisi’s sedition-laden speech on 22 December 2012, at Nirmal in Adilabad (erstwhile Andhra Pradesh) and the roar of 40,000 mobsters of the Raza Academy who started a riot on 11 August 2012, in Azad Maidan, Mumbai.


Apart from battalions and brigades of fifth columnists, Pakistan has also planted a huge army of fellow-travellers amidst secularism-doped politicians and ‘paid’ media. These quislings constitute a dangerous group whose single-purpose mission is to subvert India and Islamicise the entire sub-continent.


Selig Harrison’s warning about murky role of Communists


In a very perceptive analysis about the future twists and turns in India’s polity, the American strategic analyst, Selig S. Harrison, warned as early as 1960 (‘India: The Most Dangerous Decades’) that in the coming decades, due to machinations of the Indian communists, the centrifugal forces will gather momentum and could break India into a number of states. He predicted that Indian communists would play a major role in balkanising India by manipulating casteist and regional political outfits. He persuasively argued that the growth of regional parties will result in the emergence of regional supremos whose political careers will not depend on their loyalty to the Indian State. They will draw political power from their pretensions to satisfy regional demands, even at the cost of harming the national interest. The communists will play a decisive role in eroding Indian democracy.


Harrison specifically marked out the communists as a major force seeking destruction of the unity of India by fanning a divisive maelstrom. Harrison’s forecast about the communists trying to destabilize India by supporting separatist and casteist political groups was made five decades ago, and is now seeming to come true. 


The time has come for intelligence agencies to step up vigilance on radical leftist outfits and associated Islamic groups who shouted slogans eulogizing ‘Bharat Ki Barbadi’ and ‘Nara-e Takbir Allah-hu-Akbar’ in Jawaharlal Nehru University on February 9, which was followed the next day by preaching sedition at the Press Club of India under the stewardship of SAR Geelani and his henchmen.


This diabolical conspiracy, hatched in collusion with foreign elements, must be thoroughly investigated and exposed to convey a timely warning to Indian citizens about the malefic designs of communist outfits strutting across Indian universities to divide and destroy. The slogan, ‘Jang rahegi, jang rahegi, Bharat ki barbadi tak,’ shouted in the JNU campus, sums up the goal of communists bonding with Islamic radicals.
