India Weaves A Web Of Lies
And Shifts Blame For Violence By State In Jammu On ‘The Phoren Hand’





Three days after peace was restored in Jammu, reports surfacing in some sections of Jammu media claim that the intelligence agencies while doing post-mortem of protests are sniffing a “phoren hand” -- a foreign hand! -- behind what is being termed ‘The Sikh Revolt’ in Jammu.

As per the government drafter and approved ‘reports‘, intelligence agencies have started investigation to track foreign connections in the Indian para-military shooting which claimed the life of an innocent bystander -- a young Sikh man, Jagjeet Singh, 25.

“Intelligence agencies are not denying hands from across the border in the recent clashes,” reports said, “because there were some elements in the protests instigating innocent Sikh youth to attack cops.”

“… not denying hands …“?

The limp wording, of course, reveals no facts but a desperate attempt by the BJP/RSS controlled state authorities to obfuscate and muddy the waters.

If Indian ‘intelligence’ is to be believed, Spain, United Kingdom and Pakistan were all involved.

Intelligence agencies, the ‘reports’ further claimed, are also trying to identify group of motorcycle-borne youth who moved from different areas of the city and attacked people with swords without any provocation.

“When a youth was arrested by the police on August 5, 2014, the arrested youth had disclosed about game-plan for their mentors sitting across the border,” the reports said. “Punjab Police along with Jammu police had conducted a raid on August 5, 2014 and arrested two youth from Miran Sahib area.”

After arresting the youth, the reports said, Punjab Police officer had said: “the terror module, funded and co-ordinated from Spain and United Kingdom, was a joint conspiracy of two Pakistan-based terrorist outfits to carry out attacks.”

But many Jammu-based Sikhs are calling the intelligence probe into the recent revolt “too ambitious” on part of agencies, even given their proven expertise in fictionalizing reports. 

“It was a clear case of instigation,” said Pradeep Singh, a Jammu-based businessman. “Sikhs regard Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale very high -- which is their fundamental right to do so. Removal of his posters provoked the community.”

Notably, protests broke out in Jammu after cops removed posters of Sikh leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. In an ensued ‘police action‘, Jagjeet Singh was killed.

The Sikh body Dal Khalsa accused BJP of being the brainchild behind provocation.

And in the Valley, Kashmiri leaders including Syed Ali Geelani and Muhammad Yasin Malik condemned the state’s action on their Sikh brethren.

Unless we tackle the corruption and politics within our community, the status quo of the riotous circus involving Sikhs provoked by stage-managed RSS and Hindutva morons will continue.

As expected the RSS/BJP/Hindu Administration, true to its character, has again gone back on all promises which it made to the Sikh organizations before they agreed to end the agitation launched after the killing of the innocent Sikh youth. Several Sikh organizations today accused the Hindutava gang of treachery, betrayal and hoodwinking the Sikhs.
