Mahesh Bhatt’s wife peddles fake news about Junaid being lynched for being a Muslim, urges people to remember this when they vote

When Soni Razdan says Junaid should be remembered while voting, she is not wrong. Every single citizen of this country should remember how a murder over seats was turned into one over beef and how Hindus were demonised over a lie. 

The first phase of polling for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections have just concluded. With 6 phases to go, several people have come out of the woodworks to campaign for their favourite politicians and political parties. The Left has put all its might to defeat PM Narendra Modi, even if it means spreading fake news. Has-been actress Soni Razdan, wife of Mahesh Bhatt and mother of actress Alia Bhatt took to Twitter today to fear-monger and lie to campaign against PM Modi.

She tweeted a poster that had the face of Junaid Khan. The poster read, “I am Junaid Khan, Muslim boy, age 15. I was killed by a mob on a train for being Muslim. #RememberMeWhenYouVote”.

Peddling the Muslim victimhood card is the favourite ploy of the self-proclaimed “liberals” of India to fear-monger against Narendra Modi. They have long tried to convince people that PM Modi is a divisive figure who is out to get Muslims. Invoking Junaid Khan and claiming that he was lynched for being a Muslim is a part of that narrative.

However, is it true? Was Junaid Khan lynched by a fanatic Hindu mob just because he was a Muslim boy?

The answer is no. No less than the courts of India have held that his death had nothing to do with his religion.

In 2017, an unfortunate crime took place. A young man called Junaid was murdered in a moving train. The unfortunate murder was given an interesting turn by the usual suspects. Many media houses reported how Junaid was killed because of the suspicion that he was ‘carrying beef’. The country’s “liberal” elite had taken to social media and the streets to claim “not in my name” when the beef theory peaked.

However, while the politics of the case peaked and the Muslim victimhood was peddled lock, stock and barrel, on 28th March 2018, the High Court nailed the lies of these elements. The judgement makes it amply clear that the fight started over seats and “caste” slurs. The High Court observation too doesn’t mention beef or religious slurs to be a part of the reason for violence.

The High Court had observed:

Extract of High Court Judgement

The High Court in its judgement observed categorically that, “The incident seems to have taken place over the issue of seat sharing etc. in the train and there is neither any evidence of any preplanning to cause incident deliberately or intentionally or the create disharmony”.

It is essential to note here that nowhere in the FIR as well was the word “beef” mentioned anywhere.

The High Court makes 3 interesting observations in the portion attached above :

  1. The incident seems to have taken place over the issue of seat sharing
  2. There is no evidence of preplanning
  3. There was no intention to create disharmony

This judgement was passed during the bail hearing of one of the accused, Rameshwar Dass.

Despite the facts of the incident being clarified by the Punjab and Haryana High Court in March 2018 itself, the lies surrounding this case and the motivated narrative refuses to die down. The reason for drumming up this incident is extremely simple: Without the Muslim victimhood card, the assorted Leftists and “Liberals” won’t have much to go after Modi for. Since his days as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, the ecosystem has hounded Modi and concocted a story of sectarianism around him. Their hate is so acute, that in the process of demonising Modi, they started demonising Hindus.

Even in the Junaid case, Hindus ended up being branded as communal and violent. Some even went on to ask what was the difference between Islamic terror and ISIS and “Hindu terrorists”. It was all a lie.

At the time this High Court order was pronounced, some other prominent lies were busted in the same week. The concocted bogey of “Hindu Terror” by Congress was shattered when on April 16th 2018, all accused were acquitted of all charges by a special NIA court. The saffron terror bogey was demolished. Interestingly, Soni Razdan who is peddling lies today is the wife of Mahesh Bhatt who was present at the launch of a book called “26/11 RSS Ki Saazish”.

There was another lie that had gathered steam at the time that Hindus had filled balloons with their semen and were throwing it at girls. This ridiculous lie was busted when the forensic reports confirmed that the balloons were not filled with semen but perhaps only with shameless Hinduphobia. The latter is my deduction, I must confess.

So, when Soni Razdan says Junaid should be remembered while voting, she is not wrong. Every single citizen of this country should remember how a murder over seats was turned into one over beef and how Hindus were demonised over a lie.
