Full confidence in chindu

When SIT charged the fringe NGO brigade, which is a darling of chindu, of cooking up macabre tales of killings, N.Ram got a big slap on his face. He went dumb. He locked himself up in a dark room, crying insolently over the fate of his stormtroopers. He came out after a few days although he was not fully cured of his recurring foot-in-the mouth disease.
Setalvad in dock for 'cooking up killings'- Politics/Nation-News-The Economic Times
The Narendra Modi baiters among NGOs on Monday suffered a major setback when a Supreme Court-appointed special investigation team (SIT) charged a leading activist, Teesta Setalvad, with adding morbidity into the post-Godhra riots in Gujarat by “cooking up macabre tales of killings”.

SIT headed by former CBI director R K Raghavan said “many incidents were cooked up, false witnesses were tutored to give evidence about imaginary incidents, and false charges levelled against the then Ahmedabad police chief P C Pandey”.

Sit report, which was submitted before a bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam, said there was no truth in some of the major allegations levelled by NGOs. According to the report, the untruths included:
A pregnant Muslim woman Kausar Banu was gangraped by a mob, who then with sharp weapons gouged out the foetus;
Dumping of dead bodies into a well by rioters at Narora Patiya; and n Police botching up investigation into the killing of British nationals who were on a visit to Gujarat.

SIT also said the charge that Mr Pandey was helping mob that attacked the Gulbarga Society was untrue. “The truth was that he was helping hospitalisation of riot victims and making arrangement of police bandobast,” senior counsel Mukul Rohatgi said.

Mr Rohatgi also told the court that 22 witnesses, who had submitted identical affidavits before various courts relating to riot incidents, were questioned by SIT. “It was found that they were tutored. The affidavits were handed over to them by Ms Setalvad. They had not actually witnessed the riot,” the counsel said.
Now N.Ram comes out thundering that courts do not trust Modi. But we all trust N.Ram to selectively choose events and interpret them according his chosen prism.

The Liar-in-Chief thinks he could mislead the readers for ever. He has lost the confidence of the readers. It is only a matter of time before the readers make their displeasure known in the only language that he understands.
Meanwhile, the main culprti in the entire episode, whom N.Ram is so desparately trying to defend, is lecturing against muslim communalism.

The LDF had forfeited its moral authority to combat communalism by associating with the PDP, she said, adding that minority communalism was in no way less dangerous than majority communalism, because minority communalism would always add fuel to majority communalism.

Ironic that Teesta does not apply the above sound bites to the Godhra events.

According to the respected Malayalam daily, Mathrubhumi, Teesta said "if we call jamaat-e-islami a cultural organisation, then we will have to call RSS too a cultural organisation. They (jamaat) are not willing to acknowledge the attack of churches in Kashmir or the attack on Hindus in Bangaladesh". These crucial words were left out in Ram's f**ksheet.

Teesta S has really put the Chief n a dilemma. He would love to give space for a secular pet icon like Teesta, but certainly not at the expense of "his" secularism (pretty selective, for sure). He couldn't be seen sympathising with the plight of the Hindus in BDesh.
