Ranaghat atrocity part of ISI’s Operation Equal Blame << News analysis file 1

Subject: Ranaghat Atrocity (Raping Of 72 Old Nun)—A Pak ISI Operation?
This is a serious matter. According to Madhav Nalapat, a well-known commentator, the Ranaghat atrocity of March “was carried out through an extremist organisation based in Khulna in Bangladesh”. “The Sunday Guardian” has front-paged this in its issue of March 22, 2015. This categorical assertion was made by analysts based in the territories of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). This organisation “used recruits from two different faiths for the operation, and arranged their return to Bangladesh within hours of the atrocity”, thereby making it problematic that the actual perpetrators would ever get apprehended. More disturbingly, these sources allege that a section of the local police in the vicinity of the seminary “was aware of the planned operation, and agreed to ensure safe passage” to the perpetrators.”
There is a design behind this plan, it is:
· “designed to ensure that India and Pakistan share the same brackets on issues of human rights highlighted by the “international community” (the usual shorthand for NATO member-states). According to these GCC-based analysts, who track the activities in Bangladesh and Nepal of the ISI and its associated groups internationally, the organisation has since 2011 set up a budget to fund attacks on Christian organisations and priests in India, so as to ensure that the international media report for India in the same way as they do Pakistan, a country where the Christian community has been discriminated against since the 1980s and where members of the community are routinely killed or converted through threats. Such activity has been sharply stepped up since the middle of last year.”
· “Over the past four years, the ISI has liaised through its associates with NGOs and individuals worldwide to “facilitate the preparation of reports which seek to show that India is a country where Christians and Muslims are grossly discriminated against”, said a US-based analyst.”
· “From New York to Geneva to London, squads from the ISI have been active in ensuring that a stream of misinformation reaches policymakers about the situation in India”, a process in which they have been aided by several well-intentioned individuals and groups who have jumped onto the “India is fascist” bandwagon being propelled by some politicians in India eager to discredit the Modi government.”
A revelation in the attached piece is:
· “There is a perception that the ISI recruits only Muslims, when the fact is that in India, more than a third of active and dupe recruits (i.e. those unaware that they are working for the Pakistan-based espionage agency) are Hindus and even a few from other communities”, an analyst based in an Abu Dhabi agency revealed, adding that “it does not take much money or persuasion to ensure that acts of violence get committed in a country where poverty is rife.”
Friends, as we have said in the beginning, all these are indeed serious stuff. We have to take this as such. We hope we will soon have more supporting material during the CBI investigation, that, it has been pointed out, has given to them after spoiling all material for investigation and after facilitating the three accused to go across to Bangladesh.
