[Reader-list] Gujarat DCP shoots Muslim inspector twice in mock anti-terror drill

Javed very keenly identifies the ATS Inspector as a 'Muslim' and places in the Subject Field " Gujarat DCP shoots Muslim inspector "
The word "Muslim" is nowhere to be found on the very weblink of the article as provided by Javed himself.
Not satisfied with having done so, Javed adds the comment  "Even Muslim police officers are not safe from fake encounters...." (not to be found on the weblink provided by Javed)
One would have to be quite idiotic to not recognise Javed's intentions in making the incident "communal". Whatever be the actual 'story' behind the incident, as of now, there no reports of it having a "communal" background.
It is quite likely that the "Muslimness" of the ATS Inspector will get mentioned and highlighted in further reporting of the incident and commentaries on it. There are many Javed's around to do that. But Javed of SARAI "Reader List" will have the honour of being the first one to do so.
This should please the Moderator(s) of SARAI Reader List.
I just did a string-search for gujarat-dcp-muslim-inspector. It only throws up Javed's  SARAI Reader List mail. Oh Yes! Also a webpage from a site called coastaldigest.com with obvious ideological leanings

Javed's intent, even if to sensationalize the event, is less harmful then
actually shooting a man twice for no fault of his. And it is most important
to tackle the intent of the man with a loaded gun shooting at innocent
people. Whoever that man be. And if he is a functionary of the state then it
becomes even more imperative to tackle it. Thanks.

Dear C.Anupam ,

Did I say that any line has been said about Modi.

Would you google this news and check the subject line which has come
in newspapers .

ATS inspector injured by bullet during mock drill  : PTI

Gujarat DCP shoots cop during mock-drill  : Indian Express

Drill that mocked precautions & exposed inadequacies : Times Of India

And then you have a subject line in SARAI ,as follows

Gujarat DCP shoots Muslim inspector twice in mock anti-terror drill :
Reader-List - SARAI

If you do not understand the intent of Javed's mail, then i regret of
trying to eductae you on his intent.

No more discussion on this from my side . Those who wish to ignore my
suggestions may continue to do so.

Remember ...till they come marching to your door.

Dear Pawan:

I seldom respond on this list. But I think your response is most flippant,
insensitive, callous, off the cuff, prejudiced, and most of all laughable.
Think of it. It's like a nightmare. You go for a drill, perfectly planned
out, everyone presumably knowing their roles, and suddenly you get shot
twice in your stomach. What for? For what reason? Why? The guy was just
doing his job. And he gets shot! Bizarre! Absolute nightmare. This is
outrageous. I am sure no one would like to live this experience. And when
there were clear instructions that no arms to be taken in, why was the DCP
carrying a loaded gun. And if he was why would he shoot someone that too
twice. My mind belies any accident.

And I wonder what would turn you so blind that you'd eagerly defend the
wrong too. I don't think anyone will like to be shot at for no fault of
theirs. And yes if proven that the DCP shot at the guy with malice and for
his religious identity then Modi is to be blamed because he has actively
encouraged this mindset.



PS: Please respond to this mailing list and not to me personally. Thanks.

Not single line has been said against modi or BJP. Why are you
assuming? On what grounds?  On the other hand, if these things are not
brought towards the notice of the machinery which is at work, there
will be more such Saiyads dying in this way.

It is unfortunate that you are diverting the focus of the debate,
which should discuss things about police reforms across the country to
a political issue. You are absolutely wrong about Javed's intention to
post this news item and also using Narendra Modi to make a point here.

And what a convenient subject line made aptly for Sarai . This is how
'Liberals' are used by Javed and others.
