BJP, ISI link: Shehla Rashid takes a jibe at media

New Delhi: Shehla Rashid blasted the media for ignoring BJP member Dhruv Saxena news who was caught along with 11 others by Anti-Terrorist Squad for their links with ISI. The JNU Student Union Leader questions Media and BJP for keeping silent over 11 ISI agents arrested in Madhya Pardesh on spying charges.

According to a news item published by Irony of India, Indian media which ran a media trail on JNU student Umar Khalid linking him with Pakistan and JeM with doctored videos, which led to his arrest on sedition charges are silent on 11 ISI helpers who were arrested from MP, according to source one of the accused arrested by ATS is identified as Dhruv Saxena was a BJYM member (BJP’s Youth Wing) and had worked for BJP IT Cell.

Shehla Rashid, the 28 years old firebrand from JNU is famous for her fierce speeches which, when delivered can attract thousands of crowd tweeted :-

Where is the outrage?

The controversy was started by media after a doctored video which was allegedly created by Smriti Irani’s Ex aide Shilpi Tiwari was aired by Zee News and other channels. They immediately linked Umar Khalid with Pakistan’s terror organisation JeM without even trying to authenticate the sources.

Umar Khalid gave a 35-minute speech soon after he was released, he said “I am not ashamed that I was in jail. Criminals are those who are in power, those in jail are the ones who raise their voices.”

“I also don’t think that freedom of expression is in danger. It only belongs to those in power. People like (Pravin) Togadia and Yogi Adityanath have all the freedom of expression,” he said.

“I never followed Islam but I was called Islamist terrorist. It was not just my trial but entire Muslim community’s trial. But I want to ask what if I was practising Muslim? What if I came from Azamgarh and wore a skull cap? That will be enough to give me a terrorist certificate”, he said.

Is this reality? Looking at the present actions from a section of media who are pro-government and has leaning towards Right Wing ideology, we have no doubts they are as guilty as those criminals waging war against the country and its citizens.
