MEA receives request for immediate deportation of South Asia Bureau Chief of WSJ for his “anti-India behaviour”, sent to appropriate department for action

The Wall Street Journal had published an erroneous article, fabricating slain Ankit Sharma’s brother’s assertions to claim “Jai Shri Ram” chanting goons murdered the IB officer

The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday took cognisance of the complaint seeking deportation of Wall Street Journal’s South Asia Deputy Bureau Chief Eric Bellman, asking the Indian Embassy in the United States to file a request for the immediate deportation of the South Asia Bureau Chief of the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), who is based in India, for exhibiting “anti-India behaviour”.

However, the Ministry of External Affairs claimed that request for deportation has not been made as of yet. It added that a complaint was registered against Mr Eric Bellman by a private individual on Govt’s Online Grievance Redressal platform and it had simply referred the complaint to the concerned office as per the standard procedure. A complaint was filed against the WSJ South Asia Bureau chief with the MEA on March 2 following police complaints against the WSJ for its fallacious report on the gruesome murder of the Intelligence Bureau official Ankit Sharma during Delhi riots.

In the wake of ghastly anti-CAA Delhi riots, the American Daily Wall Street Journal published a report with concocted quotes attributed to slain IB sleuth Ankit Sharma’s brother. The report titled as “India’s Ruling Party, Government Slammed Over Delhi Violence” claimed that Ankur Sharma, the brother of the deceased IB officer allegedly said to them that the rioters had come armed with stones, rods, knives, and even swords, and shouted slogans ‘Jai Shri Ram’ before attacking his brother Ankit Sharma, thereby implying that Ankit was killed by Hindus.

However, Ankit Sharma’s brother Ankur Sharma categorically denied the WSJ fabrications and invalidated its report. “I have never given such a statement to the Wall Street Journal. This is a ploy to defame my brother and my family. The Wall Street Journal is lying,” he had said to Prasar Bharati News Service.

Ankit’s family and his brother were consistent in their statements that their Ankit Sharma was dragged by a Muslim mob that had come from AAP councillor Tahir Hussain’s house. Multiple eyewitnesses had also corroborated that Sharma was dragged by an enraged Muslim mob from inside the house of AAP leader Mohammad Tahir Hussain and subsequently killed by them. Sharma, having stabbed hundreds of times with his intestines pulled out, was found dead and abandoned inside a ditch in Chand Bagh neighbourhood.

However, despite Ankur’s repeated assertions blaming Muslim mobs under Tahir Hussain’s tutelage being responsible for his brother’s murder, the Wall Street Journal went ahead to demonise Hindus by blatantly misquoting Ankit Sharma’s brother and passing the buck of barbarity on Hindus.

After WSJ’s lies were busted, police complaints were lodged against the American daily with Delhi Police and Maharashtra Police on the charges of “defaming a particular religion and propagating communal hatred” in connection with its misreporting on the murder of IB sleuth Ankit Sharma during the vicious anti-Hindu Delhi riots.
