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 some in India may still choose to look the other way. They say you cannot wake up those who are pretending to be asleep, will our allegedly “secular” Adarsh Liberal brigade wake up and smell the coffee?
Will Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United wake up? Whose leader Ali Anwar had called Ishrat Jahan as ‘Bihar’s daughter’, which led to infamous epithet of “Ishrat ke Papa” for Nitish Kumar.
Will Sharad Pawar from the NCP wake up, who had proclaimed Ishrat as “innocent”?
Will Rana Ayyub wake up? She had declared Ishrat Jahan innocent multiple times:
Will Nikhil Wagle wake up, who “admired the fight” of Ishrat’s family?
Will Communist leader Brinda Karat wake up? Who inaugurated an ambulance dedicated to Ishraat? “In memory of Shahid Ishrat Jahan”
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:
A clear indictment! Kudos to Padma awardee Nikam, satyagrahi Headleyji for proving India’s commitment to justice. https://t.co/U5snN7KFY9

I have a feeling David Headley will also confess that Chhota Rajan is actually a patriot who has been portrayed as a gangster by the cops.

Yes. He appears to be quite ‘user friendly’ for the govt of the day, saying the right things, taking the right names https://t.co/LREY1wTZMt

Bhakts now swallowing Headley as gospel are upholding cops right to kill with impunity on street! May the Great Humanist save India.
