Ex Home Ministry Officer R V S Mani has alleged that the then IG of Central Bureau Intelligence CBI-SIT, Satish Verma had told him that both the terror attacks of Parliment and 26/11 Carnage in Mumbai orchestrated “with the objective of strengthening the counter-terror legislation”
He said that S Verma had “…narrated (to him) that the 13.12. 2001(attack on Parliament) was followed by POTA (Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act) and 26/11 2008 (terrorists’ siege of Mumbai) was followed by amendment to UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act).”
Accusing that apart from these revelations from S Verma of alleging the incumbent governments of “Setting Up” the terror attack on Parliament and the 26/11 carnage in Mumbai, Verma had coerced him (Mani) to sign a statement saying that the home ministry’s first affidavit in the Ishrat case was drafted by two IB officers.
The infamous Parliament Attack, 2001, after which India moved its forces and deployed them on Pakistan`s borders and created a war like situation and for which later on they hanged Afzal Guru without legitimated evidence of this involvement, has eventually turned out to be a big hoax. The same goes for 26/11 Mumbai Attacks, for which India has perpetually been maligning Pakistan in the international front, accusing him for being a terrorist sponsoring state and persuading western powers to pressurize Pakistan on all fronts. Ajmal Kassab of the Mumbai Attacks was no different form Afzal Guru as no decisive evidence was found in his case either.
Same goes with 26-11, India made this event as the most crucial of all, alleging Pakistan for everything and even hanged a guy Kassab, which thanks to our media outlets who tried to prove he was a Pakistani, the case of Kassab was no different than from Guru, no evidence was found against him too.
It must be remembered that before this, Hement Karkare had sought to unveil the culprits behind the Nanded bomb blasts (2006), the Malegaon bomb blasts (2007), the bomb blasts in local trains (2007) and the Samjhota Express incident.
Form the BJP`s government era, event like Gurgrat Massacre and Ishrat Jahan encounter are now again surfacing the Indian Media and S Mani`s revelation is exposing India`s dirty laundry to the world again.
Fake Encounters is not a new thing for India, according to the National Human Rights Commission of India, there were 440 cases of alleged fake encounters in the India during 2002-2007. Most of these happened in the states of Uttar Pradesh (231), Rajasthan (33), Maharashtra (31), Delhi (26), Andhra Pradesh (22) and Uttaranchal (19). From 2008-09 to June 2011, NHRC recorded 369 cases of alleged fake encounters. By June 2011, NHRC had resolved 98 of these cases, while the rest were pending settlement. The states with high number of cases were Uttar Pradesh (111), Manipur (60), West Bengal (23), Tamil Nadu (15) and Madhya Pradesh (15).
Will India be honest to its people this time and exposed and face the truth of corruption that underlies its decaying systems? Or will S Mani face the same fate Hement Karkare faced. Will the world now acknowledge Pakistan`s neutral policy towards its neighbors and India`s hegemonic designs.
