New Delhi: The controversial deposition by David Headley about Ishrat Jahan have ruffled feathers of the treasury and opposition. The Bharatiya Janata Party seeks apologies from the opposition while the opposition still targets the ruling dispensation for the fake encounter case.
“The political parties, who love such terrorists, should construct their idols in their party offices and offer prayers in front of them every day,” said BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. He also added, “It is only these people, who call India an intolerant nation. It is only these people, who are calling fidayeen Ishrat Jahan a martyr and also called Afzal Guru a great figure.”
He also said that the Opposition, which is targeting the BJP, should be asked to put forth their views on tolerance and intolerance.
The BJP leader stated that in view of the opposition targeting the government, the former must be asked to explain their views on tolerance and intolerance.
“Tolerance is not hailing the terrorists and calling the nationalists as anti-national. The entire sequence of events is extremely unfortunate,” Naqvi said.
The controversial deposition had invited ridicule from every corner. Vrinda Grover, the lawyer for Ishrat Jahan had stated that Headley’ version was not valid as answers based on multiple choice options cannot be considered as evidence as per Indian law.
Shamima Kausar, mother of Ishrat Jahan was disappointed with the deposition.
“I feel there is a conspiracy to defame my daughter in order to save someone. Who would know it better than a mother that how good her daughter was? My daughter was a very nice and kind person, and could not kill anyone,” said Shamima Kausar and she also added “It’s a conspiracy to defame my daughter, who was killed in a fake encounter. She was murdered,”
