RAW’s hit men around

India’s stumble-and-fumble kill-Khalistani operations

To India’s chagrin, the Czech Supreme Court has ordered extradition to the USA of a US-educated engineer, Nikhil Gupta.  He was suspected of international trafficking in narcotics.  He was arrested at a Czech airport on 30 June 2023.  He could not convince the Czech authorities of his credentials (a touring businessman).

The FBI had already briefed Czechoslovakia about Gupta’s antecedents.  During captivity, Gupta admitted that he was booked for narcotics smuggling in Gujarat state (cases actually washed off). He was assured of impunity from drug cases in case he helped hit Khalistani activists. The audio-video evidence indicated that Gupta tried to hire a US national (actually the FBI’s under-cover agent) to kill Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.

As a counterweight to rising China, India is hobnobbing with the USA.  To scuttle the BRI/CPEC, the UAE and India have agreed to build an interconnecting submarine tunnel. The USA has agreed to share commercial nuclear-reactor technology with India. Despite burgeoning multifaceted strategic and trade cooperation, the USA rejected India’s request to hush up the case.

Notwithstanding the US efforts to woo India, it warned it that:”It was treating an alleged plot to assassinate a Sikh separatist in the United States with ‘utmost seriousness (AFP/Reuter, December 20). India intended to appeal to the Czech Constitutional Court against Gupta’s indictment. However, Gupta has already been reportedly extradited to the USA.  The US Department of Justice has made public the damning evidence against Gupta. He has been charged with murder-for-hire.

According to the indictment, the murder plot was foiled by US officials who set up a sting just days after the killing of Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Gupta wanted to kill a number of other separatist Sikhs in the USA and Canada. In retaliation, Canada has stopped its official visit to India for trade negotiations.

In line with Ajit Doval “offensive-defensive policy”, India has embarked upon Chanakya’s koota yuddha (no-holds-barred war) or maya yuddha (war by stratagems) policy. Attacks on Naga insurgents, so-called surgical strikes on Pakistan, abolition of Kashmir statehood, and annexation of Nepalese territory (Kalapani) are manifestations of the new policy. Cornerstones of the new policy are deceit, deception, and decimation (violence).

The metamorphosis in India’s “soft’ policy remained unnoticed by the world community. It appears that India told world leaders “You better stay mum like you stayed at Mossad or CIA assassinations or renditions”. India’s argument is that if the USA and Israel could act as judge, jury and executioner, “why can’t I?”

Like Mossad and the CIA, India, too, gets its targets vetted by a conglomerate of hit men, psychologists, and other technical experts. India collected a wealth of information from the CIA’s and Mossad’s modus operandi and tactics.

The “peaceful” face of India has been unmasked by its koota yuddha and maya yuddha policy in international arena. The real terrorist is India, not Kashmiris or Khalistanis

It baffles one’s imagination how India managed to plant bombs in seminaries in Pakistan, or kill “targets” in congested Pakistani cities. Like Mossad, India also has  specialized in use of drugs and poisons to “eliminate” targets. Those killed in India’s covert operations include:

(a)        Hardeep Singh Nijjar. He was killed near a gurudwara in Surrey, Canada, by two unknown assailants in June 2023.

(b)        Rayaz Ahmed alias Abu Qasim. Shot dead in a mosque in Azad Kashmir in September 2023.

(c)          Bashir Ahmed Peer of Hizbul Mujahideen. Shot dead at point-blank range in Rawalpindi in February 2023.

(d)        Al Badr commander Syed Khalid Raza. Killed by a single shot in the head in Karachi in February 2023.

(e)        Khalistani extremist Avtar Singh Khanda. He was poisoned and died from “unknown causes” at a Birmingham hospital in June 2023.

(f)        Aijaz Ahmad Ahangar. Killed in Afghanistan’s Kunar province in February 2023.

(g)        Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Mistry Zahoor Ibrahim (one of the IC-814 hijackers). Shot dead in Karachi in March 2022.

(h)        Khalistan Commando Force’s Paramjit Singh Panjwar. Shot dead in Lahore by two gunmen in May 2023.

(i)         Lal Mohammed. India portrayed him as an ISI operative who pushed fake currency into India. He was chased and shot dead on the outskirts of Kathmandu (Nepal) last year.

(j)         Khalistani activist Harwinder Rinda. He too mysteriously died in a Lahore hospital in November 2022.

(k)        A day later, Khalistani activist and Rinda’s aide, Happy Sanghera, was killed in Italy.

(l)         Khalistani activist Kulwinderjit Singh Khanpuria. He was abducted from Bangkok, but his arrest was shown to have been made in Delhi (rendition).

(m)       In June 2021, a powerful blast rocks Hafiz Saeed’s abode. Earlier, his companion Talha Saeed was injured in a blast in Lahore. Maulana Masood Azhar. In 2019, India managed to plant a bomb at his seminary at Peshawar. It is speculated that he happened to escape unhurt.

Alongside assassinations, India continued its hybrid warfare or fifth-generation propaganda warfare. This muffled warfare was well exposed by EU-based EU DisinfoLab. It revealed an India-sponsored dis-informational network of 265 fake media outlets in 65 countries, including the US, Canada, Brussels, and Geneva. The network was being run by the Srivastava Group of India. Srivastava ran a think tank called International Institute for Non-Aligned Studies.

The European Union delegation’s visit to Kashmir has catapulted an unknown and rather inconspicuous name to the limelight: Madi Sharma. It was Madi Sharma’s NGO Women’s Economic and Social Think-Tank or WESTT which orchestrated this visit and Sharma had sent out invitations to these MEPs promising “a prestigious VIP meeting with the Prime Minister of India’’.

The Institute paid for the travel and accommodation of an unofficial far-right delegation of 23 European Union parliamentarians to Srinagar on 30 October 2013. The trip was arranged by Indian intelligence surrogate Madi Sharma who posed as a self-styled “international business broker”.

In an interview with Europe-based The Parliament magazine she admitted that ‘The only qualification I have is a Certificate of Professional Competence which means I can run a fleet of lorries’. To Madi, “the most inspirational and influential book she has ever read is Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. The delegation’s shikara (boat) ride in Kashmir Lake (Dal) pictured Kashmir as heaven in serene peace. However an MP who slipped away termed the Kashmir visit as a “PR stunt”.

Digital Rights Monitor found More than 84,000 fake tweets were generated with false hash tags, with 6688 tweets/hour being made at the peak of the trend. Macdonald-Laurier Institute, a registered Canadian charity, published a Pakistan-bashing report Khalistan— A project of Pakistan which found mention in almost all leading Indian newspapers. Another pro-India “think-tank” is the “International Terrorism Observatory” chaired by Roland Jacquard.

The “peaceful” face of India has been unmasked by its koota yuddha and maya yuddha policy in international arena. The real terrorist is India, not Kashmiris or Khalistani.
