Headley names Ishrat Jahan, but will India’s “secular” brigade accept?

Continuing his deposition today, Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley, dropped a bombshell. Headley told the court that Ishrat Jahan was a member of LeT. Headley said Lakhvi told him about the botched up operation in India by Muzzamil Butt. He was told that a woman named Ishrat Jahan was killed in the shootout. Headley had revealed this even to the FBI during his disclosures in the US.

But can we honestly expect even this from our “secular” media? Already, some “stellar” “journalists” have begun the plan to discredit David Headley, and are being joined by the usual political suspects:
