In a surprising news, Rahul Gandhi’s New York event is to be hosted by some radical Islamists having connections with Muslim brotherhood and Jamaat-e-Islami.
Rahul Gandhi’s event and Jamaat-e-Islami connection
Embarking on his six day visit to the United States, Rahul Gandhi reached San Francisco on 30 May. His visit ends on 4 June after attending an event in New York. As per investigating website DisInfo Labs Twitter handle, the event is to be held in New York’s Javits Centre. Rahul Gandhi will address the NRIs in this event.
Although the event focuses on Indians abroad, it’s organiser list contains names who are extremist and have anti-India links. One of the organisers, named Tanzeem Ansari, is Amir of the Outreach Committee of Muslim Community of New Jersey (MCNJ).
On the part of MCNJ, it is led by Pakistan origin Imam Jawad Ahmed. He is also the Project Director of Islamoc Circle of North America (ICNA). ICNA is a radical Islamist organization, associated with Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islami.This is the same Jamaat-e-Islami that expresses antagonism against India and aligns with Pakistan’s line. It also has linkages with radical and terrorist organisations.
Another coordinator is Mohammad Aslam, a member of ICNA’s close partner organization, Muslims Centre of Greater Princeton. Even the founder of banned terrorist outfit SIMI is an ICNA member.
Anti-India nexus behind Rahul’s event
Minhaj Khan, alongside another self-appointed coordinator for the Rahul Gandhi event, has been associated with the Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), an anti-India lobbying group. IAMC consistently focuses its efforts on criticizing India, using the pretext of human rights and religious freedom. The Disinfo Lab’s research findings indicate that IAMC engages in the dissemination of fake news, intentionally aiming to provoke communal tensions within India.
During the period of Dr. Manmohan Singh government in 2013-14, the Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC) employed the services of a US lobby firm, remunerating them with a sum of USD 55,000. The purpose behind this engagement was to lobby against India at the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF).
Rasheed Ahmed, the Executive Director of IAMC, also holds the same position in the Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA), a ‘charity’ organization linked to Jamaat. IMANA took advantage of India’s goodwill during the peak of the covid pandemic by raising millions of dollars in the name of aiding India, but siphoned off all the money.
Reason behind Rahul Gandhi’s hate speech against India
The thread completely exposes the reality of the event and gives a clear idea of the impetus behind such an event.Neither Rahul Gandhi nor Sam Pitroda, can claim ignorance on this. It is a blatant violation of Indian integrity and reveals why each time Rahul Gandhi uses foreign land to target PM Modi and India.
Prominent Indian politician Shri Rahul Gandhi, during his proposed #RahulInUSA tour,would attend several public events. He may not know, but some ‘coordinators’ who are claiming to be associated with events are Pak Jamaat-e-Islami & Muslim Brotherhood-linked fronts— DisInfo Lab (@DisinfoLab) May 30, 2023
