On Oct 25, 2016 India’s ETVUrdu Network aired a one-on-one interview with me where the host dropped all pretence of civility and revealed his agenda of Islamist hostility towards me.
What went on air was a highly edited version of the original recording to tweak the outcome so the host’s follies could be hidden. Despite the clever edits, the host loses his shirt in the exchange, at one point defending the destruction of mosques in Mecca in the name of development while crying foul over Babri Mosque in India.
Seems there is something innately unethical among the self-righteous promoters of Urdu in India. Hiding behind Urdu, they push the worldwide Islamist agenda of the Saudi Wahhabi Islam.
The network that is supposedly an Urdu language channel is in fact playing the role of an Islamic network promoting Sharia, Muslim victimhood and the agenda of India’s clerics who are holding the country’s Muslim population hostage in a medieval time freeze.
The channel was recently acquired by India’s most celebrated business tycoon Mukesh Ambani, an Indian hero by any account. I doubt if Mr Ambani is aware how his channel is promoting the politics of MA Jinnah of 1946-47 in the year 2016.
It is also worth mentioning that the primary viewership of the channel is NOT in the Urdu-speaking belt of UP and Bihar, but rather it is viewed mostly in the Kashmir Valley by militants influenced by Pakistan’s anti-India propaganda.
