Rizvi may find it hard to justify U-turn
Gave clean chit to BJP leader first before CBI, later before Liberhan panel
The Babri mosque demolition case made headlines again on Friday with a senior IPS officer Anju Gupta Rizvi deposing before a Special Court that BJP leader LK Advani gave a provocative speech in Ayodhya moments before the mosque was demolished by the Sangh Parivar activists. But Rizvi may find difficult to stand her ground during the cross-examination since twice in the past she had given clean chit to Advani.
“She gave clean chit to Advani in her deposition before the CBI and later before the Liberhan Commission. In two previous depositions, she found no fault with Advani and one fine day she discovers Advani made a provocative speech. Rizvi is certainly going to find it difficult to justify the U-turn,” senior BJP leaders told The Pioneer.
BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy said, “We would like to state that the court deposition does not entail a political rejoinder.” Rudy, who refused to comment on court or judicial matters, also said Indian judicial process was independent.
Those who have closely scrutinised Rizvi’s statement say while she repeated that Advani continuously appealed to karsevaks to climb down of the dome of the mosque, in her U-turn she claimed the senior BJP leader made this appeal because he did not want the karsevaks to get hurt by falling from the dome.
Rizvi, the PSO to Advani on that fateful day, deposed as a prosecution witness in the case in which Advani and other Sangh Parivar leaders have been accused of inciting violence. She is now posted at the Research & Analysis Wing and is married to Safi A Rizvi, the OSD to Home Minister P Chidambaram.
Advani was discharged in the case in 2002 after conspiracy charge was dropped. But, three years later, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court reinstated the charges of intentionally provoking people into rioting, arson and indulging in rioting with intent to create disorder as well as creating discord among communities.
In her deposition before the special court, Rizvi recalled that Advani and other leaders reached Ayodhya on December 5 night and went to Ram Katha Kunj, a single-storey building, the next morning. The roof of the Kunj was being used as a dais by the leaders to address ‘karsevaks’.
Rizvi said when Advani and Joshi reached the place, Katiyar was already making a speech in which he sarcastically said, “Even a bird cannot flap its wings here”. Joshi, Rizvi added, told the gathering that the temple would be constructed at the same site where the mosque existed.
When she went to bring Advani’s fleet of vehicles parked near the control room, for the first time she saw people scaling the walls of the disputed structure between 11:50 am and 12 noon.
Another example of how Hindu women married to non-Hindus turn traitor against the Hindu race. Angana Chatterjee is married to a white Christian professor, Teesta Setlavad is married to a Muslim … need we say more? Offering her womb to a non-Hindu affects a Hindu woman’s brain and she gets pulled into Semitic hatred against the Hindus. They essentially turn traitor.
Notice how cleverly the gutter English media of India is hiding this Anju lady’s surname after marriage, so that the readers don’t get to know she has married a Muslim. Look at the TOI report on this for example. It has also failed to mention that this lady has twice given a clean chit to Advani.
This thing has been orchestrated by Congress — the anti-Hindu party which actively prevents any kind of Hindu revival in its greed for power.
