The Human rights Mafia, The Vote-hungry Politicians, the left leaning intellectuals, students, MSM and ofcourse the so called “Youth” in J&K are running a carefully calibrated campaign to get Mohammed Afzal, the terrorist convicted in the parliament attack case off the hook.
The first step in this campaign was to have mass demonstrations and threaten more.
The second step was to send a not so subtle threat that carrying out the death sentence awarded to Afzal after a largely free and fair trial would cause more “alienation” in the valley.
Translation- we are going to immediately riot over here and then come over there to bomb and kidnap and kill more innocents in your buses, trains, planes and market places if you hang him. This is called blackmail.
The third step which involves mutual back scratching by the left-wing media, the intellectual class and the Human rights mafia is to make it into a sob story by bringing in Afzal’s aged mother, sister, wife and six year old kid into the picture.The family has submitted a “mercy” petition to the President of India on the terrorist’s behalf. If there is any proof needed that the Indian media indulges in anti-Indian propoganda this is it. They are openly trying to manipulate public opinion by twisting it into a emotional issue rather than just report the news as it is like they claim to do.
Due credit should be given to Mr M.S. Bitta, Chairman of the Anti-terrorist Front who has short-circuited this cynical craft of the propogandist media by leading a delegation of the families of those killed in the attack to submit a memorandum to the President asking him not to show any clemency to this terrorist.
