UPA govt insider reveals shocking details of how ‘Hindu terror’ bogey was maliciously manufactured

An explosive interview by Times Now has revealed how the then UPA government went to great lengths to create the false narrative of Hindu terror and falsely blame Lt Col Shrikant Purohit for the Malegaon blasts. The interview aired on Friday night with the former undersecretary in the Ministry of External affairs RVS Mani revealed details about how the narrative was created around the Malegaon blasts case, the Samjhauta Express blast case and the Batla House encounter case to paint a picture of saffron terror.

RVS Mani, who served as undersecretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs from February 2006 to August 2010 has revealed several details and stated that Col Purohit was framed by the UPA government because he was breaking the back of the groups involved in Islamic radicalisation.

RVS Mani stated that the Malegaon blast case was registered with the local police. He has raised the following points on how Col Purohit was arrested and tortured and the whole narrative has a number of glaring loopholes.

The points raised by the former undersecretary are:

  1. Col Purohit was deliberately framed by the Congress government
  2. Within barely a month of the Malegaon blast, a serving Army Officers (Col Purohit) was arrested. Also, how did the case get transferred from the local police to the ATS within 4-5 day? The blasts happened at the end of September and Col Purohit was arrested on 4th November.
  3. Col Purohit was deliberately hounded and tortured because he was breaking the back of groups like SIMI. He was exposing the links between the terror groups involved with radicalisation and politicians and powerful individuals.

RVS Mani also raised questions on the manner of Col Purohit’s arrest. Stating that protocols were violated and norms were not followed at that time and it was a pre-planned framing.

RVS Mani also discussed the Samjhauta Blast case. He stated that a Pakistani national named Arf Kasmani from a Karachi based group claimed the responsibility for the blasts. Also, later links to SIMI and other such organisations were exposed. He states in all the years of his service he has never come across a single actionable input regarding Hindu Terror and the term was deliberately coined.

He also went on to discuss the Batla house encounter and stated that it was Digvijay Singh who used to barge into meetings of the Home Ministry and dictate terms on how the investigations should take place.

He added that though the then Home Minister Shivraj Patil was present at the police headquarters on the day of the Batla House encounters and was receiving regular updates. However, he never countered the UPA’a narrative of a ‘fake encounter’. A detailed enquiry by the then Joint Commissioner Amulya Pattnaik was conducted on the encounter, the Home Ministry officials were pressurised by Digvijay Singh to review the inquiry. He added that he and his colleague reviewed the inquiry reports and found no discrepancies but still the Batla House encounter was deliberately called a fake encounter by the UPA. He added that Digvijay Singh used to barge into meetings and made several attempts to dictate the terms of the inquiry.

Times now has raised certain startling points after the interview. They are :

  1. Was the consent of the Central government taken before arresting a serving Army officer like Col Purohit?
  2. Was there a proper court of inquiry or court marshal done by the Army as per norms? If not, why?
  3. Why did the Army reinstate Col Purohit with full honours after he was granted bail? If he was really involved, why would the Army grant him his full honour?
  4. Was Col Purohit targetted because he was exposing the nexus between politicians and terror groups?
  5. Did Col Purohit pay the price for his honesty and service to the nation?
  6. Was the false bogey of Hindu Terror was coined to counter the narrative of Islamic Terror?

The Congress party needs to answer these questions.
