‘Journalist’ lies to draw false equivalence between convicted Indian Mujahideen terrorist Yasin Bhatkal and Sadhvi Pragya

Based on Ayyub's theory of equivalence, there exists no difference between a convicted terrorist belonging to Indian Mujahideen and Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, who is still an accused and not convicted by any courts for her alleged role in the 2008 Malegaon case.

Rana Ayyub, a quintessential troll who masquerades as a journalist and often indulges in Hinduphobia and fake news, has in her new anti-Hindu propaganda, attempted equate convicted Islamic terrorist Yasin Bhatkal and Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, who is incidentally still an accused in a case and was a victim of severe brutality and also, of Congress’ attempt to concoct fake ‘Hindu terror’ narrative.

Rana Ayyub has posted an image of Indian Express news reports, where one of the reports concerning Sadhvi Pragya Thakur has been published adjacent to a report on dreaded Indian Mujahideen terrorist Yasin Bhatkal.

According to Rana Ayyub, a Hinduphobic troll who often masquerades as a journalist, the two reports depicted the ‘story of new India’. She went on to lament that the Indian Express report was on “two alleged terrorists, one with a Muslim name, another a Hindu name” insinuating, that Yasin Bhatkal was treated unfairly because he has a Muslim name or that Sadhvi Pragya is treated with kid gloves because she has a Hindu name.

Based on Ayyub’s theory of equivalence, there exists no difference between a convicted terrorist belonging to Indian Mujahideen and Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, who is still an accused and not convicted by any courts for her alleged role in the 2008 Malegaon case. In fact, the court had dropped MCOCA charges against Sadhvi and the NIA had given her a clean chit in the case.

Further expressing her sympathies, Rana Ayyub refers to terrorist Yasin Bhatkal as an ‘alleged terrorist’. However, Yasin Bhatkal is the founder leader of the terrorist organisation Indian Mujahideen (IM) and was listed as the NIA’s most wanted terrorist. Yasin Bhatkal is accused of direct involvement in over 10 separate terror attacks in India. He is an accused in 2008 Delhi terror attack, 2010 Varanasi bomb blasts. He is also suspected to have played an active role in the 2006 Mumbai serial train bombings.

The 2013 Hyderabad bombings were planned and executed by Jaish-e-Mohammad backed Indian Mujahideen headed by Yasin Bhatkal alias Mohammed Ahmad Siddibapaa. The Hyderabad blast killed 18 people and injuring nearly 130 innocent people. Yasin Bhatkal was, in 2018, convicted in the Hyderabad twin blasts along with others. 

Yasin Bhatkal was finally captured by the police authorities in 2013, which break the back of the Islamic terrorist group Indian Mujahideen. During initial interrogation, Bhatkal had himself admitted of recruiting young men from Bihar to carry out terrorist attacks across the country, but our so-called liberals like Rana Ayyub gives them a clean chit by calling them an ‘alleged’ terrorist.

Yasin Bhatkal had also admitted his involvement in carrying out the 2011 triple blasts in Mumbai. He admitted to the investigative agency that he was the mastermind behind the blasts. Shockingly, Bhatkal had also admitted that he was satisfied with whatever he has done and had no remorse or regret for carrying out terrorist acts.

On the contrary, Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur is still an ‘accused’ in the 2008 Malegaon blast case. In 2016, the NIA took over the case and filed a charge sheet in 2016 which exonerated Pragya Singh Thakur and dropped charges under MCOCA against all accused. She is currently under trial for multiple charges under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act but out on the bail.

It is not surprising to see Rana Ayyub sympathising with the cause of Islamists by whitewashing their crimes but what interesting is their relentless campaign to target a woman who has been allegedly tortured during her trial on the pretext of being part of ‘Hindu terror’ network.

The liberal pro-Islamist ‘journalists’ like Rana Ayyub do not want to leave out a chance to express their ‘Hinduphobia’ and often overlook the huge difference between the status of an accused and a convict while absolving an actual terrorist for all his crimes by calling him as an ‘alleged’ terrorist.
