New Delhi, Jan 19, 2017:  The Dangal star Zaira Wasim, a sixteen-year-old Kashmiri girl was trolled for meeting J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today came to the defense of her.

Venkaiah wondered why “ultra liberals” are silent on the issue. “Why did she have to tender an apology for meeting the CM of her own state? Why is everyone silent now? Where are the so-called ultra liberals now?” Naidu, who holds the portfolio of Information and Broadcasting, questioned, mentioned PTI.

While addressing a function of Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) here the Urban Development Minister came up with this issue.

The incident, according to him clearly shows the irony of the pseudo liberals who vehemently came out to speak against the growing “intolerance” earlier, Naidu urged the people to stand up by her side. The trolling began when Zaira’s picture came up with Mehbooba. She featured as a young Geeta Phogat in the recently released Bollywood movie Dangal.

It is a great achievement, said Naidu that children from Jammu and Kashmir are coming into the mainstream and are showcasing their talent and inspiring thousands of other youngsters. “Zaira’s episode shows how pseudo liberals react to different situations, adopt different standards. What is wrong committed by this young talented artist from Jammu and Kashimir?” he said.

The minister also said, she has shown the path and one should feel proud and appreciate her than trying to be verbally violent. Commenting on the controversy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi replacing Mahatma Gandhi in the 2017 calendar and diary of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), Naidu said “creating unnecessary” issues by certain people has become a routine. Venkaiah also said “What is the issue, I don’t understand? PM Modi has been promoting Khadi from day one. He is appealing to the people to use khadi and its sales has increased over 30 per cent”.

Commenting on those who are criticizing the issue, he said it is the very same people who have never followed the Father of the Nation. “There was no photo of Gandhiji for 5 years during the Congress regime but they had no objection at that time,” he said.

  • Jaish-e-Mohammad, a teenage suicide bomber who was killed this Sunday threatens attacks across India in a video.
  • The video shows how teenagers are brainwashed while sitting between terrorists and rifles.
  • The video has brought out the various reasons why the Kashmiri youth is turning towards terrorism.

A teenage Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) suicide bomber killed on Sunday in Kashmir had threatened terror attacks across India in an undated video which announces the “roaring” resurgence of his outfit headed by the Pakistan-based militant Masood Azhar.

The video, which gives a peek into how Kashmiri teenagers are being brainwashed into believing that they are targeting enemies of Islam, was apparently recorded in a house in the Kashmir Valley.

The Pakistan-based militant outfit on Monday released the eight-minute video online in which Fardeen Khanday, son of a Jammu and Kashmir policeman, urges Kashmiri youth and Muslims across the country to join the “fight against India”.

Seated between three AK assault rifles, a huge cache of ammunition, grenades and communication devices, Khanday appears calm even as he says that “by the time the video is released I will already be a new guest in heaven”.

Khanday, 16, was killed after he and two other Jaish suicide bombers attacked a paramilitary camp in Pulwama in south Kashmir on Sunday. Five Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in the attack. The other two attackers were also killed.

He said it was being made out as if unemployment was driving Kashmiri youths to take to militancy. “But the fact is that it is nothing (but) propaganda.

“The importance of jihad increases when infidels occupy our land and threaten the modesty of our women.

“My friends and I have listened to the call of Quran and plunged into the battlefield of jihad. This will continue till the last occupying soldier is present in Kashmir,” he says in Urdu with a thick Kashmiri accent.

According to police, Khanday, a resident of Tral in south Kashmir, which was the slain Burhan Wani’s hometown, joined militants only three months ago after his family reported him missing on September 15.

In the video, he also talks about the demolition of Babri Masjid as well as attacks on security forces blamed on the Jaish.

“Even after repeated claims by Indian security forces and agencies, Jaish-e-Mohammad has not been wiped out from the Valley. Jaish is not so weak. It is impossible to stop Jaish-e-Mohammad… We are roaring,” Khanday says in the recorded video. IANS
