Encounter in Ahmedabad
The four youths gunned down a few days ago in Ahmedabad, that is, the laboratory of Hindu Rashtra, were reportedly felled down in an Encounter.
This is a wonderful Encounter in which the police did not get hurt at all. All the same this encounter proved fatal for the four, including a girl student from Khalsa College, Mumbai. Ishrat had no previous criminal record, the Maharashtra police found.
If the four "planned to kill Modi", why had they to be liquidated? How did the Gujarat police arrive at this conclusion? Is it adept at reading the minds? Firearms appeared laid across their bodies. Was this good enough to prove they were terrorists?
The timing of the quadruple murders is uncanny. Modi's ouster as CM was being discussed. MLAs were in revolt. Attention had to be deflected.
Macedonia comes to mind. A month ago a dozen Pakistanis were killed there in cold blood as "terrorists". But later investigation proved they were just migrants in search of a country that would let them in. But the murders were staged to impress USA to prove Macedonia lagged behind none in the global US "war on terrorism". The minister had to resign.
Modi would not resign. He would stick to his guns. That is only way for the Encounter to look genuine.
