As Congress remembers 26/11, the ‘dark day’, social media users remind it of another dark fact

November 26 2008 is indeed a dark day in India’s history. 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamic terrorist organisation based in Pakistan, carried out a series of 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days across Mumbai. While the terrorists were eventually killed, one of them was captured alive: Ajmal Kasab. In early 2009, Pakistan admitted that Kasab was indeed a Pakistani citizen.

A Washington Post report revealed that US intelligence agencies had evidence about Pakistan spy agency ISI’s involvement in the attacks. Indian authorities too found numerous evidences which pointed the finger solely at Pakistan. It was also reported that Pakistani investigators had told India they have found substantial, incriminating evidence that directly connects Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba to the attacks.

In remembrance of this day, Congress’s social media handle put out a tweet expressing solidarity with the victims:

While Congress remembered India’s dark day, social media users had not forgotten another dark day:

While the world was holding Pakistan responsible for 26/11, then Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh & close aide of Rahul Gandhi, had released the book “26/11 RSS Ki Saazish?” (26/11,An RSS Conspiracy?). The book was authored by Aziz Burney, Editor-in-Chief of Urdu Sahara newspaper.

Further, Singh had alleged that Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare had called him two hours before the 26/11 attack in Mumbai to say that his life was blighted by constant threats from those opposed to the ATS probe into the 2008 Malegaon blast in which Hindu extremists were accused. Thus, Singh had exonerated Pakistan and had decided to push the blame of 26/11 attack on RSS and Hindu extremists.

The Congress had rather timidly “distanced” from Singh’s remarks. No top leader (read from Gandhi clan) stepped out to condemn Singh. In fact, general secretary Janardan Dwivedi had this to say:

There is no question of agreeing or disagreeing. It is regarding a conversation between two individuals. Unfortunately one of them Karkare is no more with us. So Digvijay Singh will be in a better position to comment on his statement. Singh has made that private conversation public in a programme and the party has no role into it. Hence only he can comment on it

In the past, in the absence of the internet, history could be rewritten, edited and swept into the carpet. But in today’s world, there is just no place to hide.
