Indian Muslim operating pro-ISIS Twitter account all set to play victim card

As expected, the Bangalore based Muslim executive, who was running a popular and influential ISIS-supporting Twitter account @ShamiWitness, has started the process of becoming a “victim” in the eyes of the unsuspecting public.

OpIndia.com had earlier predicted this possible course of action that could be taken by Mehdi Masroor Biswas, the Bangalore based executive who was outed a by British news channel.

Latest reports confirm that Mehdi is working on this plan, and this could have been suggested to him by his lawyers and “well-wishers”.

The Twitter Terrorist
The dual life of Mehdi – as an ISIS-supporting Islamist on Twitter (above) and as a common Indian man on Facebook (below).

Although he was arrested by Bangalore police earlier today, he used the time given to him in the last two days to talk to the Indian and international media to project his innocence – an increasingly reliable tool by Islamists in India.

As proof of his innocence, Mehdi has claimed that he didn’t operate the pro-ISIS Twitter account, even though he admitted doing that to the British news channel. He claims that he falsely told Channel 4, the British news channel that outed him, that he was the person who operated the @ShamiWitness Twitter account.

Mehdi claims that his email address was used to create the Twitter account and he was unaware of this.

First of all it is indeed strange that a person can use someone else’s email address to create a Twitter account and the other person is unaware. Twitter sends a mail to the email address before confirming the account.

However, assuming that even the email was hacked, there was no reason why he should accept being @ShamiWitness to Channel 4. He could have expressed shock and approached Bangalore Police’s Cyber Crime cell to lodge a complaint about his email account being hacked.

It is clear that Mehdi is trying to obfuscate facts so that he is given benefit of doubt by courts and activists. It is a standard operating procedure by Islamists where they use Media and Human Rights activists to obfuscate facts and conceal the truth.

It has also come to light that Mehdi originally belongs to West Bengal, where Islamists have increasingly become emboldened – first ignored by the Left Front government and now encouraged by the TMC government led by Mamata Banerjee.

Mehdi’s father has already set the ball rolling and is hoping that his son and his family are seen as victims.

“You know being Muslim, we are easily identified as terrorists,” Mehdi’s father told The Indian Express, adding “The days are so hard now. But I can tell you that my son is innocent and has done nothing wrong. If he has landed in trouble it is because some enemy is after him.”

OpIndia.com will not be surprised if Mamata Banerjee takes note of this statement and development and asks Kolkata police to safely bring Mehdi Masroor Biswas by taking over his custody from Bangalore police.
