RANGA BILLA RULING INDIA: Former Interior Minister and Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior Senator A. Rehman Malik today on Thursday has said that today he is exposing the ‘Ranga Billa of India’ for their crimes against humanity, Ranga- the Modi and Billa- the Amit Shah. He said that despite infamous for their brutalities against religious minorities, mass killings and killing of their political opponents in fake encounters yet the both crime partners are ruling the India. He said that they killed the witnesses, investigators and judges and managed acquittal so they both are in power today because of gun.

APPRECIATION of USCIRF & DEMAND OF INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS: He appreciated the US Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) for its call for global blacklisting of India. He writes “I would like to compliment and appreciate the Chair and honourable members of USCIRF for their excellent and persistent deliberations in identifying the crimes against humanity, religious violations and damaging interfaith harmony by Indian Government. However, he expressed that mere call for global blacklisting of India will not be enough but international sanctions should be imposed against India. He has urged the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) to advise the United Nations to constitute a high powered commission to investigate gross religious violence in India and place India under International sanctions until the safety of life of religious minorities is not ensured. He has appreciated the chairman and members of USCIRF for its recommendation of global blacklisting of India over religious freedom violations.

BUTCHER OF GUJRAT: In his press conference, he made public the detailed letter he has written to Chairman USCIRF in which he has exposed the religious violence by India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his crime partner Amit Shah. In his letter to Chairman USCIRF, Senator A. Rehman Malik writes that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was rightly titled as ‘The Butcher of Gujrat’ that remains part of the world record and his travel to USA was banned for seriously violating International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA). While exposing the unprecedented brutalities of Narednra Modi and Amit Shah, he writes “I without going into further details would like to reiterate that Narendra Modi did not cease his persecution of Indian Muslims and continued to brutally oppress innocent Kashmiris and other minorities after becoming Prime Minister.

REVOKING OF KASHMIR STATUS, CAA & NRC TO FURTHER VICTIMISE RELIGIOUS MINORITIES: Using the Indian Security Forces, other Government organs of India including RSS, Narendra Modi further unleashed his reign of terror by introducing verifiable draconian measures to increase violations against the Muslim community in Kashmir & rest of India. The letter reads that motives behind the most recent moves of PM Narendra Modi were to further victimise religious minorities in India as per the ideology of RSS. He said those moves included the scrapping of the status of Kashmir status by revoking the Article 375 and 35-A, Issuance of New Domicile Law for held Kashmir to allow settlement of non-Kashmiris including RSS in Kashmir, Imposition of CAA and NRC that paves way of increased inhuman persecution of targeted minority groups are parts of RSS ideology to. He tells that peaceful protests against CAA and NRC by public were crushed through disproportionate violence and brutalities by security forces, all across India and this crime against humanity is still continue.

REPLICATION OF GUJRAT RIOTS: Senator A. Rehman Malik observes that once again, like Gujrat, engineered Genocide against Muslims in Delhi, through trained assassins of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), while State Police was ordered to deny protection to Muslims and to facilitate the RSS cadres. He pens “The 2020 Delhi riots were multiple waves of bloodshed, property destruction, and rioting in Delhi, beginning on 23 February and caused chiefly by Hindu mobs attacking Muslims. The Delhi riots were replication of Gujrat riots when Narendra Modi was Chief Minister and Amit Shah was provincial Home Minister. The riots were actually initiated by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Hindutva to pursue their ideology in Delhi also to dent the Aam Aadmi Party and its head Arvind Kejriwal. The social media is full of video clips of the cruelty exercised by RSS and no one dared to take action against them.”

CRIMES OF MODI: Senator A. Rehman Malik further writes to Chairman USCIRF that I seek to draw your kind attention to the fact that the Narendra Modi and his associates, are ruthlessly and brutally using Indian State organs to force Hindutva Ideologies upon the minorities, and depriving them of their basic rights, that were guaranteed under Indian Constitution and fall under relevant UN charters. He adds “the unabated atrocities by the RSS, against innocent Muslim majority in Kashmir, Muslims in other parts of India are morphing into a Communal Cleansing through Genocide, and exhibit the worst example of religious persecution in modern history. Kashmiri Muslims are killed, disposed of and some Muslims are still missing and they are forced to submit before Hinduism and on refusal they are threatened and violence is perpetuated against them. The Muslims Kashmiris are under Curfew for the last seven months and it is one of the most glaring religious violation by the Indian state run by the RSS.

CRIMES AND MURDERS BY AMIT SHAH: Senator A. Rehman Malik in his letter has given a brief details of the fake encounters carried out on the directions of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah as then Chief Minister and Home Minister Gujrat respectively. He writes “Several Journalists with conscious, were courageous enough to speak out against the gross violations by Indian Government-Patronized RSS, during the engineered massacre of Muslims in Gujrat, following Godhra Train incident in 2002”.

He has also referred to well-known Indian investigative journalist Rana Ayyub, who in her book “Gujarat Files: Anatomy of a Cover Up” has exposed the involvement of Amit Shah in killings of many Muslims and political opponents including murder of Mr and Mrs Sohrabuddin Shaikh, witnesses of the murder Mr. Tulsiram Prajapati and Azam Khan, murder of home minister of Gujrat Mr. Haren Panday and the judge of CBI Justice Brijgopal Harkishan Loya and etc. He said that the police officer namely DG Vanzara who conducted the fake encounter and from jail he wrote a long letter to the Gujrat government in which he described Amit Shah as “Evil Influence” on Narendra Modi. He added that in the letter DG Banzara accused the Gujrat government of ordering the fake encounters and then deliberately ensuring that police officers remain in prison to save the own skin. He has quoted few abstracts from her book in the letter and has urged the Chairman USCIRF to investigate and record statement of Ms. Rana Ayyub – the author of ‘Gujrat Files’ and other eye witnesses which may be made part of USCIRF Report. He said that Rana Ayyub has a lot of evidence against Amit Shah but in fear of threats to her life, she couldn’t make public.

BJP AND RSS PATTERN OF VIOLENCE: Senator A. Rehman Malik in his letter further writes that pattern of violations by RSS, BJP, Indian Government of Modi clearly suggests beyond any doubt that the present Indian state under Prime Minister Modi are bent upon to increase more religious violations against Muslims forcing them either accept to be Hindu or get ready to be killed.
CONCLUSION: Senator A. Rehman Malik pleas “to meet the ends of justice, I request you that, Investigative Journalist, Ms. Rana Ayyub, along with other living witness may be provided security and protection, and invited to offer their evidence and reveal the facts that led to the carnage at Gujrat, now remembered as the Muslim Massacre. He adds that it will be in the interest of justice if the head of the Aam Aadmi Party Mr. Arvind Kejriwal is also called as a witness along with and few other victims, who suffered at the hands of RSS, to record the statements for this honourable Committee. He writes “I urge you, in the interest of humanity, and religious freedom, that a high powered Commission may be proposed by UN to investigate these violations, and to place India under International sanctions until the safety of life of Muslims and other minorities is ensured, as per proposed TORs as under:-
PROPOSED TORs:

Subject: GROSS VIOLATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY / RELIGIOUS VIOLENCE BY INDIA.

I would like to compliment and appreciate the Chair and Honourable Members of USCIRF for their excellent and persistent deliberations in identifying the crimes against humanity, religious violations and damaging interfaith harmony by Indian Government.

Mr. Narendra Modi, was rightly titled as ‘The Butcher of Gujrat’ that remains part of the world record. Upon identifying the gross atrocities conducted by him as , United States of America, under US Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), banned his travel to USA for seriously violating International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA).

I without going into further details would like to reiterate that Narendra Modi did not cease his persecution of Indian Muslims and continued to brutally oppress innocent Kashmiris and other minorities after becoming Prime Minister.

Using the Indian Security Forces, other Government organs of India including RSS, Narendra Modi further unleashed his reign of terror by introducing following verifiable draconian measures to increase violations against the Muslim community in Kashmir & rest of India:

Scrapping of the status of Kashmir status by revoking the Article 375 and 35-A in sheer disregard to the will of the Kashmiri people and their leadership, as well as the UN Resolution, that asked for Plebiscite for self-determination.

Issuance of New Domicile Law for held Kashmir to allow settlement of non-Kashmiris including RSS in Kashmir aimed to force-in demographic changes.

Imposition of The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) that paves way of increased inhuman persecution of targeted minority groups. Peaceful protests by public were crushed through disproportionate violence and brutalities by security forces, all across India and this crime against humanity is still continue.

Once Again, like Gujrat, engineered Genocide against Muslims in Delhi, through trained assassins of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), while State Police was ordered to deny protection to Muslims and to facilitate the RSS cadres.

I seek to draw your kind attention to the fact that the Narendra Modi and his associates, are ruthlessly and brutally using Indian State organs to force Hindutva Ideologies upon the minorities, and depriving them of their basic rights, that were guaranteed under Indian Constitution and fall under relevant UN charters.

The unabated atrocities by the RSS, against innocent Muslim majority in Kashmir, Muslims in other parts of India are morphing into a Communal Cleansing through Genocide, and exhibit the worst example of religious persecution in modern history. Kashmiri Muslims are killed, disposed of and some Muslims are still missing and they are forced to submit before Hinduism and on refusal they are threatened and violence is perpetuated against them. The Muslims Kashmiris are under Curfew for the last seven months and it is one of the most glaring religious violation by the Indian state run by the RSS.

The 2020 Delhi riots were multiple waves of bloodshed, property destruction, and rioting in Delhi, beginning on 23 February and caused chiefly by Hindu mobs attacking Muslims. The Dehli riots were replication of Gujrat riots when Narendra Modi was Chief Minister and Amit Shah was provincial Home Minister. The riots were actually initiated by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Hindutva to pursue their ideology in Delhi also to dent the Aam Aadmi Party and its head Arvind Kejriwal. The social media is full of video clips of the cruelty exercised by RSS and no one dared to take action against them.

Several Journalists with conscious, were courageous enough to speak out against the gross violations by Indian Government-Patronized RSS, during the engineered massacre of Muslims in Gujrat, following Godhra Train incident in 2002. I am quoting here the revelations made by well-known Indian investigative journalist Rana Ayyub, in her book “Gujarat Files: Anatomy of a Cover Up”. The crux of her investigation, pertaining to Amit Shah, now Union Home Minister of India, is as follows;

The Gujarat home minister, Amit Shah was involved in the killing of the three Muslims who were falsely accused of terrorism by accusing them of being members of ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’. Three weeks later, Amit Shah was arrested on charges of orchestrating the killings. He was put into jail after a trial in 2014 for ordering the fake encounters of ‘Sohrabuddin Sheikh’, his wife ‘Kauserb’i and murder of witness ‘Tulsiram Prajapati’. These three innocent Muslims were all killed in 2005 and 2006.”

Azam Khan, a contract killer, was given the contract of killing of former Gujarat home minister Haren Pandya by police officer D.G. Vanzara in 2003. The murder of former home minister still remains a mystery as neither police nor CBI got themselves involved in this while his family kept calling it a political murder. In 2010, the sole testament and consistent witness of the case, Azam Khan, was also eliminated through assassination.

According to the investigations, when Shaikh and his wife Kauserbi were travelling from Hyderabad to Sangli in a bus in November, 2005, , the Gujarat and Rajasthan police stopped them and shot them dead near Gandhinagar. The wife, Kausarbi was also allegedly raped by a sub-inspector before being murdered. The Gujarat police falsely claimed that Sheikh had links with Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, and that he had a plan to kill the, then chief minister Narendra Modi. However, a Special Investigation Team constituted by the Supreme Court later found that they had been killed in a fake encounter. On the other hand, Prajapati, being the sole witness of the murders was also shot dead in police custody in December 2006. During investigation, the police claimed that he was trying to escape from custody.

The first arrests made were of deputy inspector general D. G. Vanzara and Rajasthan police officer Dinesh MN. The Crime Investigation Department gathered phone call records that revealed frequent phone calls of Amit Shah with D. G. Vanzara, Dinesh, superintendents of police Rajkumar Pandian and Vipul Kumar. The call records from September 2006 to January 2007 revealed that Amit Shah remained consistently in touch with D. G. Vanzara and Pandian during that short period of time around all three killing.

The number of calls increased every time there were developments in the case. The Gujarat CID report pointed out that the frequency of these calls was unnatural and uncommon in nature as they were against the minister’s official protocol. The police officials involved in the encounter remained in jail since 2007 and were granted bail in 2014. After they were arrested the investigating officer was transferred and the case was handed over to Inspector General Geeta Johri, who was later criticised by the Supreme Court for not conducting a fair investigation.

It is evident, and cannot be ignored, that all the witnesses were systematically eliminated through assassinations, and in each case, police implicitly was beyond doubt.

In brief, Amit Shah used police to kill Mr & Mrs Sheikh, and the eye witness. It was extremely unfortunate that a sub inspector, holding a position of trust, raped Mrs. Shiekh before murdering her. Unfortunately, he had full backing of Narendra Modi, who was then Chief Minister.

Ironically, Narendra Modi upon being sworn in as PM of India, rewarded Amit Shah by securing him a berth in his cabinet, as Union Home Minister, a position, where he has free hand to conduct murders and associations in name of Hindutva.

Narendra Modi and Amit Shah Duo has earned the notorious title of ‘Ranga Billa’, implying that whosoever crosses their path, meets the fate of the witnesses and Judge Loya of Gujrat massacre case. Such was the terror of Extra Judicial Murders by the Chankya of modern times, Amit Shah, and the Butcher of Gujrat, Narendra Modi, that none dared to step out and give evidence against either of their cohorts.

Under the duress of then CM Gujrat, Narendra Modi, Rana Ayyub was prevented to publish her findings in the then famous expose magazine Tehlka, that demonstrated Narendra Modi’s central dominating role in the massacre.

A sole witness of Narendra Modi’s involvement in the massacre was Sanjiv Bhatt, a former Indian Police Service officer from Gujarat. He is known for his role in filing an affidavit on 11th April 2011 in the Supreme Court of India against the then Chief Minister of the Government of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, concerning Modi’s alleged role in the 2002 Gujarat riots. He claimed to have attended a meeting at Modi’s residence, during which Modi allegedly asked top police officials to let Hindus vent out their anger against the Muslims.

After the 2002 riots, a group of social activists had formed the Concerned Citizens Tribunal to analyze the riots. Gujarat’s home minister Haren Pandya (who was mysteriously killed later) had allegedly told this tribunal that Modi had organised a meeting of several police officers on 27 February 2002 after the Godhra train burning, in which over 63 Hindu pilgrims had died. Pandya claimed that, in this meeting, Modi had asked the police officials not to come in the way of “the Hindu backlash against Muslims”. Pandya had named several police officials who attended this meeting and he was later assassinated by unidentified men.

Bhatt in his affidavit, had mentioned six witnesses, who could testify his presence in the alleged meeting held at Modi’s residence but later-on KD Panth prime witness was turned hostile to help Modi escape any negative outcome. Bhatt was suspended on 8 August 2011 by the Gujarat government, accusing him of unauthorised absence from duty. He was contacted many times by Amit Shah and Modi’s agents to destroy all the evidences against them. Eventually, he was dismissed from police service on the basis of same grounds of “unauthorized absence” in August 2015. Apparently the witness is still alive, and may be willing to provide evidence if protection is assured to him.

The above pattern of violations by RSS, BJP, Indian Government of Modi clearly suggests beyond any doubt that the present Indian state under Prime Minister Modi are bent upon to increase more religious violations against Muslims forcing them either accept to be Hindu or get ready to be killed.

To meet the ends of justice, I request you that, Investigative Journalist, Ms. Rana Ayyub, along with other living witness may be provided security and protection, and invited to offer their evidence and reveal the facts that led to the carnage at Gujrat, now remembered as the Muslim Massacre.

It will be in the interest of justice if the head of the Aam Aadmi Party Mr. Arvind Kejriwal is also called as a witness along with and few other victims, who suffered at the hands of RSS, to record the statements for this honourable Committee.

The downgrading of India to “Countries of Particular Concern (CPC)” through USCIRF Report-2020, is insufficient to convince India for ceasing the atrocities unleashed through RSS and Hindutva, against Muslims and Minorities in India.

I urge you, in the interest of humanity, and religious freedom, that a high powered Commission may be proposed by UN to investigate these violations, and to place India under International sanctions until the safety of life of Muslims and other minorities is ensured, as per proposed TORs as under:-

To investigate and record statement of Ms. Rana Ayyub – the author of ‘Gujrat Files’ and other eye witnesses which may be made part of USCIRF Report.
To further verify Narendra Modi’s and Amit Shah’s role in Gujrat riots and extra judicial killing of Mr. & Mrs. Sohrabuddin Sheikh.

To examine the police witnesses who are living testimony against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah brutalities against religious minorities in India.
To investigate the unprecedented brutalities and religious violence in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) and rest of India by PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah.

To record statement of Head of Aam Aadmi Party Mr. Arvind Kejriwal for violence against religious minorities during Delhi riots that broke out after passage of controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) by Narendra Modi.

The investigations as per above TORs will bring ample evidence against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah about their brutalities, cruelties against Muslim minority in India.
With best wishes.
Yours Sincerely,

(Senator A. Rehman Malik)
