Sanjiv Bhatt – Sepoy or Decoy?

Mr. Sanjiv Bhatt, Picture: The Hindu
Last week, National Newspapers covered the news report about sacking of an IPS officer from Gujarat, Mr. Sanjiv Bhatt. I noticed that a very important part of Sanjiv Bhatt's 'life-event' was completely avoided from being mentioned in these news reports, A very relevant detail to the overall scheme of things – but that would change the whole perception of the 'news' then. Obviously this was done with a very clear & firm intent by the Mainstream Media – it is impossible for this to be a simple casual co-incident.
***
Before we go on to talk about the missing detail & much more, a brief look at these news reports from some of the leading national newspapers:

A 1988-batch IPS officer, Bhatt had filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court, claiming that he had attended a meeting at Modi's residence in Gandhinagar on February 27, 2002, during which the Chief Minister had instructed the top police officers to allow the Hindus "to vent out their anger" after the train-burning incident at Godhra earlier that month.”

The Hindu: Gujarat IPS officer who took on Modi after 2002 riots dismissed
In April 2011, Mr. Bhatt filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court accusing Mr. Modi of “complicity in the 2002 riots” in which over 1,200 people, mostly from the minority community, were massacred.
The 1988 batch IPS officer of Gujarat cadre, Mr. Bhatt was suspended by the Gujarat government after he filed an explosive affidavit in the Supreme Court contending that he “had attended the meeting held by the then Chief Minister of Gujarat Mr. Modi who had asked the top police officials to let Hindus vent out their anger against the minority community following the attack on the Sabarmati Express in which 59 Hindus were torched to death near the Godhra railway station.”
Times Of India: Suspended Gujarat IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt sacked
He had alleged in an affidavit in the Supreme Court that Narendra Modi, then the chief minister, instructed the top police officers to allow the Hindus "to vent out their anger" after the train-burning incident at Godhra in February 2002.
We can clearly see a pattern emerging here. While all reports categorically explain the background in great detail and drive home an obvious 'motive' behind the sacking, they have intentionally concealed the very important fact that Mrs. Shweta Bhatt, wife of Mr. Sanjiv Bhatt, had contested Gujarat assembly elections on Congress ticket, directly against Mr. Narendra Modi in 2012.

This is a classic case of what I call: “Spin-Craft” or “Supari-Journalism” - discussed in detail in another post titled Of Distortians, Intellectuals and Spin-Doctors

***

Within a very short span of just four years (2011-2015), Mainstream media made a National Hero out of Sanjiv Bhatt, showcasing him as whistle-blower gone down fighting the Fascist Communal Hindu Nationalist leader of a Hindu majority national party of India (well, this is how the 'sickular' Indian media and the 'communist-evangelical' western media likes to define the democratically elected current Prime Minister of India).

Riding on top of this media frenzy, coupled with a very smart handling of Social Media platform, powered by the 'NGO-Media' nexus; earned him 50,000 plus followers on Facebook and 16,000 plus Followers on Twitter as of today – not bad at all, eh?
For someone to show up from nowhere in 2011 and gain 'national martyrdom' in 2015.

This can happen only in India!


So, who is Sanjiv Bhatt? Let me not get too personal talking about the individual, but I share these links here for the benefit of readers, in case they wish to know more about the Man.

8 Things You Need To Know About The Sacked IPS Officer Who Locked Horns With Modi

TRUTH: Finding it amongst the Lies: Sanjiv Bhatt PPT

***
Now that we know the person and his full background, let us get back to analyze the fine work Sanjiv Bhatt has put together, for which he has been awarded this 'larger than life' National Hero status.

Mr Sanjiv Bhatt suddenly woke one fine morning in 2011 to do something worthwhile for his country and decided to file an affidavit before the Supreme Court. This sudden awakening of “Desh Seva”, almost nine years after the Gujarat communal riots, does not go down very well, to begin with.
IPS Bhatt lobbied with anti-Modi groups | Picture: Jagran.com
While still in the Services as a senior IPS officer, he spent some 'quality time' to connect with the state-level leaders of the opposition - Congress party, (exchanging some 'packages', accepting high-end Blackberry mobile phones); networked with top gun NGOs (such as Teesta Setalvad, Shabnam Hashmi of ‘Anhad’ and Father Sedrick Prakash of ‘Prashant) and the Media (Such as Manoj Mitta of Times of India). These people were still enjoying the 'fruits of communal riots of 2002' and milking the ever flourishing 'anti-Modi industry' at that time. They all joined together for the 'common cause' and helped him draft a legal affidavit which he files at Supreme Court of India on 15th April, 2011.

Two years later, On 30th April 2013, SIT appointed by none other than Supreme Court, gave its verdict stating that Sanjiv Bhatt did not attend Modi's Feb 2002 meeting.



For any law-abiding self-respecting person, legally demolished claims and such indictment should be the end of road, no? Wrong. The new age 'krantikari' & 'secular' activists of independent India find better ways to fight for their rights. 

***
Shweta Bhatt and suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhat  
One year after filing the 'explosive' affidavit at Supreme Court, enters Mrs. Shweta Bhatt. Sanjiv Bhatt fields his wife Mrs. Shweta Bhatt into electoral politics of 2012 Gujarat assembly elections. The battle ground is also set by the Congress – Ground Zero is Maninagar constituency of Ahmedabad, against NaMo.

***
A confession: Sanjiv Bhatt would have been my Hero as well, provided his wife had contested as an INDEPENDENT candidate from Maninagar against NaMo, surely not on behalf of Congress.
***

NDTV, The Congress mouth piece, was ecstatic:

Gujarat polls: Suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt's wife to contest against Narendra Modi, files nomination papers
Maninagar (Gujarat): In a red cotton sari, her husband and suspended cop Sanjiv Bhatt by her side, newcomer Shweta Bhatt filed nomination papers today as the Congress' candidate from Maninagar in Ahmedabad and instantly found the spotlight on her. She is contesting elections against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
"This shows the Congress failed to find a single leader who can contest the election against Modi. The Congress is taking Gujaratis for granted," a senior editor of a Gujarati daily newspaper told Rediff.com
***

Madhu Kishwar in MODINAMA 6 says and I quote:
“Instead of succeeding in getting Modi implicated, Sanjiv Bhatt ended up being seriously indicted by the SIT for his mischief.”
...
“But since the media either ignored the SIT report or joined Teesta Setalvad in attacking SIT and continued repeating the same old hackneyed charges against Modi even after he was cleared by the SIT report, Bhatt continued being treated as a hero who had taken on the “Hitlerian tyrant” Modi.
...
Congress rewarded Sanjiv Bhatt’s wife Shweta Bhatt with a Congress ticket to fight the 2012 election against Narendra Modi. Shweta Bhatt’s campaign was run by a colourful coalition that included Shabnam Hashmi’s Anhad, Teesta Setalvad’s CJP, Togadia’s VHP, Vinay Katyar’s Bajrang Dal and elements of the RSS!
***

As expected, Sanjiv Bhatt abuses the Services “code of conduct” triggering yet another controversy as "Sanjiv Bhatt canvassing for wife against law”
In a letter written to the Election Commission of India, Government of India, and Chief Secretary, Gujarat, Dr. Thakur said, "the acts of the Bhatts prima facie seem to be clear cut violation of Section 123 (7) (a) and 123 (7) (d) of the Representation of People Act, 1951."

" Under these laws, a gazetted officer or a police officer making any assistance (other than giving vote) for the furtherance of the prospects of the candidate's election are defined under "corrupt practices"."

"Sanjeev accompanied his wife all through the nomination and has been seen openly canvassing for her. A distinction must be maintained between the conduct of officers and politicians," Dr Thakur told The Hindu, adding that Section 129 (2) of the same Act declared assistance by a police officer punishable upto six months imprisonment.
***

But the Fans of Sanjiv Bhatt, or may I use their own term – Bhatt Bhakts - don’t have a problem with all this and they refuse to accept the Facts. Quoting from a Blog that routinely celebrates Sanjiv Bhatt:
I don't know about Congress's methods in giving tickets, but if they choose to give a ticket to Sanjiv's wife, so be it. His wife – by supporting the gang of thugs known as Congress – has lost my support, but does that mean Sanjiv's testimony as a professional is contaminated? NO.
Oh yes, by all means YES. Sanjiv Bhatt's testimony, credibility & reputation as a professional; is not just 'contaminated' but becomes suspect of malice, and goes for a huge toss with this Congress ticket. It is a pity that YOU fail to recognize and see it that way. On the contrary, you even go to the extent of re-writing the Services “Code of Conduct” rules just so to accommodate and validate your Hero.

***

Then comes the historic 2012 Gujarat assembly poll results declaring: 

Modi Roars Back to Victory

After losing to Modi, Shweta Bhatt said, "Gujarat deserves Modi and that that's why they have voted for him...It doesn't shock me. It hurts that the people of Gujarat cannot see the hidden truth,"
Let us read it once again: “It hurts that the people of Gujarat cannot see the hidden truth”! Wow, you are 'legally demolished' & 'democratically defeated', still you put the blame on people for not being able to see the 'hidden truth'. This is the level of arrogance and utter contempt you have towards the highest offices of judiciary and the democratic processes.

Anyway, NaMo records a landslide victory for the third time in a row from Maninagar constituency with a record margin of 86373 Votes.

In this interesting observation, Shweta`s plan shows Sanjiv Bhatt`s fight was political: BJP,
BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said: "Congress is exposed thoroughly today. In the last 10 years, they carried out a hate campaign...They defamed Gujarat to the hilt. And Sanjiv Bhatt became a major pawn in the hands of Congress.”
Also, as Paresh Rawal had rightly commented : Modi too would lose election if he contests on Congress’ ticket

So, this was nothing more than political game-plan, full of cheap & dirty tricks all the way, that eventually backfired. Sanjiv Bhatt just played out his role assigned to him by his masters - Indian National Congress.

***
So, here is the summary on an IPS officer who:
  • has a chequered track record,
  • hobnobs with Congress leaders, sham NGOs and corrupt Media,
  • files a bogus affidavit in Supreme Court, nine years after the incident,
  • SIT investigation rejects the affidavit,
  • indicted by SIT for the mischief,
  • fields his wife on a Congress ticket against NaMo,
  • wife loses assembly polls,
  • Continues to stay in public-eye through smart SN and corrupt MSM.
Whistle-blowers and Honest officers while on-duty DO NOT collude with political parties.

Just before publishing this post, read another story: The lesson from Sanjiv Bhatt’s dismissal: there’s nobody to protect whistle-blowing civil servants by Harsh Mander.

It is curious that we find the same old names in circulation, members from the 'gang of extraordinary Fake-tivists', drumming up support for each other.

NDTV does it again ...

For the viewers of 24x7 News Channels - NDTV Does it again and exposed.

Sreenivasan Jain, NDTV old-timer, one of the leading lights from "anti-Modi industry", has established himself and lived off this highly remunerative "anti-Modi" journalism career spanning over 10-12 years.

Sreenivasan Jain

***
 
Sreenivasan Jain goes for the kill - to interview Baba Ramdev.

'I Am a Scientist Baba', Yoga Guru Ramdev Tells NDTV


Starting with some irrelevant details in this article, he finds a suitable spot to insert: 
"In an interview at a luxury farmhouse on the outskirts of Delhi"
But the main target of the article & the interview was something else - read his punch-line below to get the sense of the agenda (emphasis is mine):
"But the normally outspoken Baba, who has in the past been open in his support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, was oddly muted when asked how he rated the performance of the government. "On this, Babaji's no comments!" he said."
Now let us listen to the NDTV clip. To save time, jump straight to the clip position in the above article at 05:40, and carefully hear the Question and the response from Baba Ramdev. 

Clealry, anyone who watched this clip on NDTV would reach the obvious conclusion as stated by Sreenivasan Jain in the above article. Baba Ramdev responds as "No Comments" when asked about the year-long performance of Modi Government. Fair enough!

Now moving over to the more interesting part.

***

I would say Sreenivasan Jain is a big Zero or plain stupid to have played his old trick with none other than Baba Ramdev. 

Baba Ramdev runs his own TV channel from his backyard and can buy half a dozen NDTVs any given morning. Baba is well aware of the dirty tricks these #presstitutes of the likes of Sreenivasan Jain normally play.

So there was a back-up Camera of "Bharat Swabhiman" running and recording the full interview. That was a very smart decision by Baba Ramdev and the duds like Sreenivasan Jain failed to factor that into their scheming of the hit-job.

So let us now look at the Original version:

Baba Ramdev in Open Discussion with Sreenivasan of NDTV (Unedited) 

 

 

Let us quickly move over to the position at 20:50 of the long clip, starting with the same Q as the NDTV version at 05:40.

Listen in to the Unedited and the Original response of Baba Ramdev.

No more comments!

***

I wonder, why Baba Ramdev needs to sit with 'paid-media' like NDTV and waste his time on these 'exclusive' interviews, only to be edited in the studios before going on air, to suit the hidden agenda of #Presstitutes? 

Or, did he plan it such to get a stupid #presstitute like Sreenivasan Jain walk in for an 'exclusive' trap and then get exposed in his own game?

Am not a follower of Baba Ramdev, but I guess the latter must be true!

Moral of the story:
a) For #Presstitutes: Never mess with the Baba.
b) For the viewers: Stop consuming 'Reality News'.

The Trash of India


THE TRASH OF INDIA


This is one single newspaper that I seriously consider as a "The TRASH of India".

Today's edition was an epic and at least a few Million Dollars worth of Media Space.
Here are snapshots of the contents for those who might have actually missed nothing at all, except saving Rs. 5/- and a couple of minutes, before it is TRASHED.

You may like to click these images to enlarge, just in case ...


FRONT COVER Page:

SECOND Page:

Page # 2

THIRD Page:
Page # 3

FOURTH Page:

Page # 4



FIFTH Page:

Page # 5

SIXTH Page:

Page # 6

ACTUAL FRONT Page, at PAGE No. 7: 
The Trash of India Headlines, only in Half a Page ...

Page # 7

The Trash continues, at Page # 3, actually NINTH Page:

Page # 9

TENTH Page:

Page # 10

ELEVENTH Page:

Page # 11




LAST Page:

Page # 24

So that was the 'Main Paper' of today's The TRASH of India for you, 11 out of 24 Pages.
Of course, not considered half a Kilo of newspaper waste in the form of a few Supplements.

And about the supplements of this Trash?  If you put it all together for a month and compile it in one booklet, what you would get is a soft-porn that can be titled -
The TRASH that Tanatalizes India.

It is purely the market dynamics, consumer preferences & buying pattern that decide an advertiser's decision to book media space.

Question: As responsible consumers, do we continue to buy this TRASH and contribute to this insane "in-your-face" advertising tamasha? Think about it ...

Hindu ISI : Understanding Indian Sickular Intellectual


"And there are people still in darkness,
And they just can't see the light.
If you don't say it's wrong then that says it right. "
~ Solomon Burke


There is this growing tribe that I would like to discuss here, define it with some key-words and then list some examples for our better understanding.

Typical Hindu ISI, Indian Sickular Intellectual, also known as 'Useful Idiots' can be defined in the following key-words:
  1. They are Hindu: I am yet to come across a non-Hindu ISI - so this one is almost non-negotiable.
  2. NOT fascinated with Hinduism, do not care to know what Hinduism is all about and  carry a perverted 'evangelical' view of Hinduism.
  3. Absolutely Secular (all religions are same - what is in a religion? etc.)
  4. Being Hindu is Communal,
  5. Closely follow & worship MSM (Mainstream Media) - TV & Print
  6. Highly cultured & curated with Left-Liberal values & ideas,
  7. Anti-Modi, for sure - this is a 'must have’ qualification.
  8. English Medium Educated, (but this tribe is growing very fast even in the Hindi hinterland, thanks to the Lit-Fest events now happening in Tier-II Towns & Cities)
  9. NGO Sympathisers (5-Star Samaj Sevak!), Elite activists.
  10. Slaves of materialistic Urban Lifestyle but romanticize about Social Service & Activism,
  11. Keyboard Warriors. On-line Petitions and Change.Org can actually change the world,
  12. Romantic about Politics, “we can change the world” - from the comforts of our drawing rooms, with the help of latest gadgets!
  13. Fascinated by terms: World-Citizen, Global-Village - but have no idea what it means?
  14. Big fan / aspirants of Ivy League Universities,
  15. AAP-Supporter
To qualify and be a member of this Elite ISI brigade, one would check against at least 10 keywords from the above list of 15. Yes, one must score about 65% to be a part of this Intellectual Circle.

This is the biggest problem India is facing today, internally. There is no other threat bigger than this, no not even Naxalites, Pakistan, ISIS or China. India has to fight its very own - this is the tragedy & the comedy at the same time.

What is even more worrying and astonishing is the fact that these people are coming from good jobs, good education, well groomed, traveled abroad, some are even Professors and Journalists. The sheer ignorance towards facts, lack of wisdom and common-sense among this crowd is simply amazing. But they are all Patriots and they love India. 
Clearly shows exactly where our education system has gone wrong!



These people are popularly known as - ‘Useful Idiots’. 

Oxbridge educated Indian liberal intelligentsia may be more familiar with the term: 
"useful innocents", better understood as "confused and misguided sympathizers". 
Ref: Ludwig von Mises's "Planned Chaos" (1947).

Let us now look at a few good examples of ISI - The Sickularatti

Case # 1:

I enjoyed reading a long chain of comments on FB, and can't resist sharing one particular comment here (it's not really important who wrote this - what is important that I can safely tick minimum 13 qualifier key-words from my above list = 86%, Perfect ISI):

FB comment goes like this and I quote, word-by-word:
“---, unlike you, I do care how development is achieved, which is why I will never support a murderer like Modi. AK does not yet have the blood of innocent citizens on his hands, even if his dictatorial tendencies have suddenly made him more acceptable to you."
Once more:
  • "I do care how development is achieved" - Mind it !!
  • "I will never support a murderer like Modi”
Wow! Those were real gems. This tribe of 'Hindu ISI' do not respect constitutional mandate, they have complete disregard for Indian Judicial system, blindly follow & consume MSM Headlines every single day, and then pass their own unsolicited judgements on FB.
  • "AK does not yet have the blood of innocent citizens on his hands"

Unfortunately, this 'development freak' may like to know that AK has blood on his hands for which nobody needs any court verdict. During AAP public rally on Wednesday, 22nd April 2015, among the cheering AAP supporters, in front of full media & public glare, one innocent citizen Mr. Gajendra Singh Kalyanwat hanged himself from the tree. 
Whether an accident or a suicide - the case is under investigation.

***
Case # 2:

Another gem of a comment is shared below, on the Greenpeace controversy, a classic example just to show the mind of a typical elitist ISI:
"Greenpeace is in trouble because the PMO got jealous of Priya Pillai - as they'll now get jealous of anyone else invited abroad - the only Indian who should travel abroad is big-chested NaMo - and Greenpeace's 'foreign' funds should be granted exclusively for our PM's 'foreign' jaunts - nothing 'paranoid' about it - and now they also plan to get their paws on temple gold to help this cause"
Read it once again and have a hearty laugh:
  • PMO got jealous of Priya Pillai
  • they'll now get jealous of anyone else invited abroad
  • the only Indian who should travel abroad is big-chested NaMo
  • Greenpeace's 'foreign' funds should be granted exclusively for our PM's 'foreign’ jaunts
This is the kind of utter nonsense that passes off as ‘intellectual discourse’ among the highly educated and the ‘arrived' elites. This comment was posted the very same day I had read another story elsewhere - Why Greenpeace appointed a political advisor ...and had even shared it on my FB timeline.

On a more serious note, let me also share an important fact here that this gentleman is a very senior professor, who educates & mentors the impressionable young minds of India. What a terrible shame!

***
Case # 3:

This is another freak comment which I came across just today.

The Comment that would easily qualify as one from an ISI:
"A question to think. If Muslim invaders were savages why did they not kill all Hindus? Why were they not all converted? Why were not all temples brought down? Why?"
Someone tell this friend, go look up on your own and read the history based on facts and data; not the secular curated stuff meant for schools.

Often I come across these Sickularatti ISI, some arrived after an Ivy League Master’s & Doctor's and what not, who still live in a complete denial of historical facts. For the simple reason that they studied Indian history, carefully manufactured and curated for the secular primary & middle school curriculum; and then they all got busy with their preferred worldly education. The sad fact remains that they have completely ignored tons of data and facts in their own backyard and never bothered to brush it up on their own. Now that they are back with so-called wisdom, they liberally comment on these extremely serious matters, only to show their pathetic ignorance.
***
I started keeping the tribe of Sickularatti ISI at a safe distance now and never indulge in a debate with these people. I realized that it is a futile exercise to debate with these "useful innocents". Knowing that they also care for India as much as I do, I am sure they will come back one day, on their own - that would be my idea of "ghar-wapsi" in true sense of the word.


***

Absolute contempt & disregard for any facts and data, based on genuine & verified sources is the single-most dangerous character of these "useful innocents". Oh, that also reminds me, ISI tribe strongly believes & draws wisdom from "peer-reviewed" (JSTOR) literature. I find this "peer-reviewed" concept very funny and amusing. This is typical OxBridge ivy league culture: "you-scratch-mine-I-scratch-yours" - that our ISI conveniently imbibed from the west and have now got so used to - basically, a very convenient & "please-all" kind of happy social network. I have already discussed this subject at length in another post titled: 

The problem lies somewhere in the judgement and understanding of Politics - coupled with English education, populated with ‘Secular’ & ‘Curated’ Curriculum, English MSM that constantly feed them with some 'junk' all the time and finally, complete disconnect with the Ground (मिट्टी) - a deadly combo that makes one an esteemed ISI - a truly Patriotic Indian but at the same time, an Useful Idiot.

This tribe of ISI have been literally following & worshiping the band of paid-media-celebs, few of these leading flames are included in the pic below, who have been reduced to 'Supari Journalists' in the current scenario.



The ISI Sickularatti typically would read up stuff like:

Most extremists in India are not Muslim – they are Hindu

"The media has misleadingly conflated terrorism with Islam. But don't expect Narendra Modi or his ministers to clear up such misconceptions." ~ Aakar Patel

We have already discussed in detail the job of these 'Supari Journalists' in another old post titled: Of Distortians, Intellectuals and Spin-Doctors

On a concluding and positive note: This ISI tribe is so minuscule and so insignificant that it would hardly affect the fabric of this great nation - beautifully explained here in this piece by N Muthuraman:

Does the Nation Really Want To Know?



  • "On any given night, less than 4 lakh Indians watch this show! Yes, you read it right. Less than 4 lakh people!
  • Next time when you watch Arnab Goswami (or Barkha Dutt or Sardesai or any other English news anchor), bear this simple fact in mind – that their reach is 0.033% of the population!
  • Remember, these are the ones who made fun of 31% voteshare! For all you know, this is their way of keeping themselves relevant in public discourse!"
