Pro-Islamist and scandalous Congresswoman from Democratic Party Ilhan Omar, on April 6, 2022, delivered an outrageous speech in the House of Representatives describing the “plight” of Muslims in India and their alleged ill-treatment at the hands of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP. It may be mentioned here that BJP is led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Someone who is ominous regarding Indian politics may have been convinced by the many allegations Omar levelled at Modi. She is fluent and articulate. However, those who are well versed in India’s political scene were quick to see her diatribe for what it really was: a mad rant, driven by her Islamic agenda, founded upon hollow claims, and supported by false plots.
Commenting on Ilhan Omar’s latest attempt to demonize Narendra Modi and putting false allegations against India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, experts said: “Omar has no business speaking about India’s politics at all. Surely, she couldn’t be exasperated by the fact that jihadists are not allowed to wreak havoc in India anymore, at least not with the impunity they previously enjoyed, could she? Was Omar, whose past statements have led to numerous allegations that she is anti-Semitic and favorable toward jihadist groups, pained that Murtaza Abbasi, a Muslim who entered a Hindu temple in Gorakhpur with weapons but was stopped by police, was not allowed to repeat the bloodshed of Akshardham Hindu temple jihad attack that was executed by his namesake, Murtaza Hafiz Yasin?”
Ilhan Omar claims that Muslims’ human rights have been trampled upon in India under Narendra Modi’s governance. She whines: “How much does the Modi government have to criminalize the act of being Muslim in India for us to say something?”
Ilhan Omar is the Somali-born American politician who was earlier accused of marrying her own brother and committing immigration fraud. According to columnist Ashlyn Davis: Omar seems to have forgotten that India is a sovereign state with no patience for foreign parties interfering in its internal affairs. She should be reminded that India has performed the greatest service that Muslims have ever received. India divided itself into three parts, giving up two parts of its very self to Muslims so that they could form Islamic nations while simultaneously accommodating the Muslims who chose to stay in what remained of India.
I must spell it out for Rep. Omar: Muslims enjoy the same rights in India as any other religious denomination. Some may have gotten used to the extra perks that were showered upon them by the previous government, but that’s a thing of the past.
Few, if any, countries on earth have suffered from Islamic jihadist attacks to the extent that India has. The bombings of hotels, the burning of trains, the vandalism of monuments, the gang rapes of Hindu women by influential Muslim men who were shielded from prosecution by political power, bloodshed at Hindu temples, arson attacks on Hindu neighbourhoods by mobs of unruly and frenzied Muslims — India has seen it all.
Unfortunately, the country was ruled for a considerable period by forces that took no concrete action against these terrorizing elements that had held the country hostage for so long. But the inaction of India’s former administrations should not convince Ilhan Omar that bombings, arson attacks, rapes, or killings are “human rights” granted to the group of her choice.
It must be emphasized that although Modi is prime minister, massive mobs of Muslims run riots on the streets of Indian cities every year. This lawlessness is often sparked by motives such as opposing a newly implemented law or demands for special treatment. Often it is a matter of hounding the Hindus who are celebrating their festivals. The Muslims gather quickly in large crowds and begin throwing stones and gasoline bombs, attacking medical staff, killing police officials, and more.
If Omar wants the present Indian administration to applaud such anarchy and approve of this destruction as a “human right” for the jihad-minded among her coreligionists, she is in for a massive heartbreak.
Indians decided to reject the inefficient, corrupt, and Islamopandering forces in 2014 and elected the Modi government to do everything in its power to protect India’s interests and its people and borders from any and every internal and external danger. Indians have sent Modi to the prestigious office of prime minister to right every historical wrong, including reclaiming Hindu temples that were plundered and razed to the ground by Islamic invaders some 500 years ago and resettling the Hindus who fled Islamist cruelty through the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
While Ilhan Omar has crossed the red line by making a foul attempt of demonizing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, she does not utter a single word against recent terrorist attacks in Israel and the continuous notoriety of mega-terror outfit Hamas and other Palestinian jihadist groups. She also remains totally mum when Iran continues spreading terror through its proxies such as Hezbollah, Houthis and Hamas. Ilhan Omar feels shy in condemning the notorious actions of the Pakistani spy agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) and Pakistan’s continuous culture of promoting and patronizing terrorism throughout the region and the world.
Recently, a few agents of the Pakistani spy agency ISI were arrested in the United States by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on specific allegations of bribing members of the US Secret Service deployed on duties to guard President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Has Ilhan Omar uttered a word about this serious case?
While enemies of India and agents of radical Islam are increasingly becoming louder, voices of moderation and advocates of interfaith harmony as well those speaking against radical Islam and jihad are being unfortunately abandoned or ignored by the majority of the policymakers in India and the world. Here may I humbly draw the attention of the Indian policymakers, especially the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), to an unfortunate case where I am facing serious harassment from the agents of jihad and anti-India and anti-Hindu forces. A false case under Digital Security Act (DSA) has been lodged against me with the Cyber Tribunal in Bangladesh for the “crime” of publishing a report based on specific pieces of evidence about notorious activities of an anti-Bangladesh, pro-militancy, anti-India, anti-Hindu and anti-government individual in Bangladesh. On April 6, 2022, I appeared before the Cyber Tribunal in Dhaka, Bangladesh and sought anticipatory bail in this case. The tribunal has fixed August 17, 2022, as the next date. The incident, in brief, is a woman named Shahana Rashid Sanu posted a video of Mizanur Rahman Azhari on March 21, 2021, on her Facebook ID protesting the Bangladesh visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM Modi visited Bangladesh to attend the Golden Jubilee celebration of Bangladesh’s victory against Pakistani occupation forces. In the comment section of this notorious post, several people suggested waging jihad against the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
After committing such a serious crime which is tantamount to sedition and high treason, this pro-Islamist woman had the opportunity to lodge a false case against me under Digital Security Act for reporting her anti-Bangladesh, pro-militancy, anti-India, anti-Hindu and anti-government activities and very surprisingly she even received sympathy and support from at least one police officer in Bangladesh.
Ilhan Omar’s standing in the US Congress and barks against India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and in Bangladesh, an anti-India and anti-Hindu woman Shahana Rashid Sanu’s lodging false case under DSA against me seems to be an unfortunate chronology. It seems agents of radical Islam are gradually winning the momentum. Unless everyone in Bangladesh and India, especially the policymakers, takes a united stand against these evil elements, we may finally witness the demonic rise of Islamists and jihadists in this region.
