Islamists attack AAP legislator after he calls blogger Rifat Jawaid ‘Talibani’ for labelling Indian army as ‘cowards’

Rifat Jawaid has since deleted his tweet calling the Indian Army 'coward'.

Islamists and terror apologists descended upon timeline of Aam Aadmi Party MLA Naresh Balyan after he called out Editor of pro-AAP blog Janta Ka Reporter Rifat Jawaid ‘Talibani’ for calling the Indian Army ‘coward’.

On Saturday evening, Jawaid had tweeted, “Indian army: can’t defend a tweet on secularism and you expect these cowards to defend the country.” Following a controversy, Jawaid deleted his tweet. However, the screenshot of his contentious tweet began doing the rounds of the internet.

His remarks about the Indian army drew the ire of AAP legislator (Uttam Nagar) Naresh Balyan, who went on to label the blogger as ‘terrorist (atanki)’ and ‘Talibani.’

Balyan posted a series of tweets in which he lambasted Rifat Jawaid. “Look at this man harbouring Taliban mentality. He is referring to the Indian army as ‘coward’. Why doesn’t he leave the country and settle in Afghanistan? He should be booked.”

The AAP MLA added, “Just because a PR company deleted a tweet, he is labelling the institution of the army as cowards. What is the difference between this blogger and the militants? Indian army knows how to deal with these terrorists.”

Naresh Balyan emphasised that the tweet of Rifat Jawaid was not just directed at the institution of the Indian army but those soldiers such as Major Mohit Sharma, who laid down their lives in the service of the nation. “This is an insult to 137 crore Indians,” he had tweeted.

The AAP legislator went on to draw a clear distinction between Major Usman and the blogger, labelling the former as a ‘martyr’ and the latter as a terrorist.

In another tweet, Balyan stated, “He (Rifat Jawaid) ran away by deleting his tweet. Who is the coward? You or the Indian army? Think 1000 times before calling the army coward.” He then went on to accuse the pro-AAP blogger of being on the payroll of the BJP.

Islamists soon descended upon the Twitter timeline of Naresh Balyan and abused him for defending the Indian army and calling out the blogger.

“And Aam AAdmi Party at it again. Full of Sanghis like Balyan. Why are you demonising Muslims? Of course, Indian army must answer why it is not standing with its Muslim troops. Why should Rifat Jawaid go to Afghanistan! You should be stripped of your MLA status”, wrote one Islamist.

“AAP is the father of the BJP when it comes to showcasing bigotry. Naresh Balyan is the snake of RSS in the Aam Aadmi Party,” wrote another Islamist.

‘Journalist’ Aditya Menon had tweeted, “These shameless people will not take 2 minutes to label Muslims as Talibani, Bangladeshi or Rohingya.”

Menon has converted to Islam.

“Next time, vote for Congress in Delhi. AAP will move on to Punjab, and maybe even Gujarat by then. But throwing them out from Delhi in the initial years will at least hinder the growth of the modern, and the more polished version of BJP to take birth and spread fangs in India,” remarked Bollywood scriptwriter Hussain Haidry.
