Mumbai is witnessing something beyond fascism. It is pure police terrorism.
The Mumbai Police under its CP, Param Bir Singh have unleashed an unprecedented terror on Republic Media Network, its Editor-in-Chief, Arnab Goswami, and the entire staff of 1000 journalists by registering an FIR on the Republic TV team.
Never before in my relatively long career in media, as a journalist and an owner of a media brand have I seen or heard in India or Internationally such an act of terrorism by a law enforcement authority, whose primary duty is to protect the rights of the citizens and media.
The pathetic situation in Mumbai reminds me of the reports I read on places like Syria, Lebanon, war-torn regions of Africa. There is no democracy, there are no rights for the media, there is nothing but pure evil and authoritarian rule.
Uddhav Thackeray is misusing the power of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. The Mumbai Police Commissioner who is working under the orders of the Thackeray family has forgotten his sworn duty to the uniform he wears and the oath he took to the office as a police commissioner.
He unfortunately and disappointingly, has taken the reputation of the institution of the Mumbai Police and rubbed it in the shit-filled latrine of corruption that is so visible in Mumbai today. I wonder whether the inquiry into the toilet-paper usage of the Republic Media Network was to clean the shit that has engulfed his surroundings.
I am not surprised that most national media have not come out in support of Arnab Goswami and the Republic Team. I often considered some of them to be impotent journalists or people who prostituted their journalistic principles at the altar of money. They are proving me right and exposing their despicable whorish nature to the people of India and the world.
When a reputed journalist and his entire team have become victims of a vicious and malicious witch-hunt in a democracy, it only means that democracy is a mere word in our Constitution but it has no meaning and that the truth is, we do not live in a democracy but as bonded slaves of moral deficient politicians.
Today, if the people of India, keep quiet over the attack on Arnab Goswami and the Republic Team that fought for justice over the Palghar lynching, Sushant Singh Rajput death, and many more issues when the people of India needed a voice, then we will be crushed by more politicians in governments in the future that will believe that when they are in the position of power, so they can control the life and destiny of any citizen of India.
India is witnessing police terrorism in Mumbai. Terrorism unleashed by orders of powerful people in the government trying to hide truth and dance to the tune of the Bollywood and Drug cartel controlled by the global drug kingpin and terrorist Dawood Ibrahim. Like I mentioned before, a senior intelligence officer told me that USD 50 million is the ‘Supari’ out from Dawood to stop Republic Media Network and Arnab Goswami.
In the last few days, we are seeing an unprecedented misuse of political power through the power of the police. Under the guise of the TRP investigations, a planned attack has been unleashed on the Republic team and Arnab Goswami. The sole objective is to stop the Republic Media Network and Arnab Goswami.
The real objective is to scuttle the truth behind the exposure of the underbelly of Bollywood, Drugs, and Politics-Dawood links which were emerging out of the investigations in the Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Salian.
It is this truth that has rattled everyone, right up to ISI and Dawood. Simply because drugs and its advertising tool Bollywood is integral to its revenue and geo-terror strategies. Arnab touched a raw nerve that is upsetting its business and geo-terror strategies.
The links of the politicians in Mumbai with Dawood are legendary but the political will of right-thinking people in the government and bureaucracy is missing because in politics it is you scratch my back and I will scratch your back syndrome in India.
I do not believe that the attack on Arnab Goswami and Republic Media Network will stop. It will continue to get more sick and vile in the days to come because as a nation we just keep watching, even the Centre and Courts, the institutions that have the power to stop this police terrorism, remain mute spectators at this rape of democracy.
BJP will provide its adequate lip service but will not overtly stop this rape of democracy happening till such time as it does not benefit their political agenda.
The appeal I have is to the people of India, the honest in the media and the officers with integrity in the Mumbai police, this is an Emergency-like situation. If today, you do not step out to do your core duty for the nation and protecting our democracy, tomorrow there might be no voice to save your rights and liberties in our nation. Our Constitution and the principles it was formed on, will be thrown under a truck. So speak up and stand up for the truth.
In the end, the truth will triumph. No dictator has ever survived the might of the people seeking truth and freedom.
My message to Uddhav Thackeray is that you will face a twist of fate, it happens to all those who think that power is perpetual. It is not, it is a temporary responsibility if you use it wisely it stays for a long time but if you use it ignorantly and egoistically, you will lose it as quickly as you got it.
My message to Param Bir Singh is that your past will catch up with you soon. Life is a circle, you always come a full-circle. The truth of your malice and vindictive nature has been exposed. The carpet under your feet is slipping, faster than you know. You will be used and discarded.
India will win!
