'WHO Killed Karkare’ by former IG police SM Mushrif may not be a beautifully written account of the deep-seated malaise called Brahmanism. But it surely is a chilling reminder of the horror we all are experiencing. Apart from backing his arguments up substantially by narrating firsthand accounts and observations and a thorough research, the author makes his book a must read for a few other reasons as well. It is a daring initiative to challenge the most powerful lobby in the country that is uncontrollably powerful and profoundly manipulative, having succeeded over decades in building a sound support system and wherewithal in terms of controlling media and intelligence agencies. Taking on the two most powerful agencies in the country, the IB and the police, Mushrif’s authoring such a treatise is a rare act of daredevilry. That he is a Muslim makes it all the more special keeping in view how Muslims in India have been forced into silence and how over a period of time they have been left with no option but to stay at the backfoot. Mushrif makes a special mention of Maharashtra Police, Delhi Police, Gujrat Police and a “section” of the J&K Police that he believes are driven by a pro-Brahmanist and anti-Muslim agenda.
 
 It is an incredibly gripping eye-opener that takes a reader through the dark lanes of a malignant phenomenon - the Hindutva. And how dangerously widespread its tentacles are in every institution of the country that matters in terms of policy making, security and law and order. And how desperate its ideologues are to gain absolute power by fanning communalism and targeting Muslims by portraying them as a threat to peace, development and the very existence of the ‘nation’.  Trying to find out the genesis of this scourge, Mushrif goes back to 1893 when the first major pre-planned Hindu-Muslim riots broke out.
 
 Though the author has dedicated the book to late Hemant Karkare mentioning him quite regularly in his chapters, it however is a reflection of a far broader and bigger sinister game that goes much beyond Karkare’s murder at the CST-CAMA point on 26/11. Mushrif demands a thorough probe into the murder that is shrouded in thick mystery. It is an ode to Karkare for the “yeoman’s” services he rendered to the nation by cracking down on the Brahmanists who were behind a series of terror acts that rocked the country in a highly organized manner, giving Muslim bashers and the security agencies enough reason to launch a scathing tirade against the beleaguered community.
 
 Mushrif cites a number of dubious encounters carried out by police and the subsequent investigations monitored and doctored by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) to suit the fanatic RSS and its various subsidiaries. All this to make sure that every terrorist act that takes place is blamed on Muslims, for that is where the Brahmanism draws its oxygen from. Mushrif’s expose` puts a huge question mark on the credibility of India’s premier intelligence agency that is primarily responsible for the internal matters of the country. The book talks about the omnipotence of this organization, so much so that according to the author, at times the Home Minister and even the Prime Minister can be helpless before the IB authorities. And the Hindutva zealots, appointed as intelligence agents, get away with everything that they perpetrate to further the Brahmanist agenda.
 
 The daily routine of the prime minister of India begins with a 15-20 minute briefing by Director IB (DIB) who briefs him about the important developments that happened during the last 24 hours and a forecast of the future developments based on social, communal, regional and international intelligence that the organization gathers through its sources. The DIB also briefs the Home Minister on daily basis. The Defence and the Foreign Affairs ministries are also briefed occasionally whenever there are some important inputs regarding them. This is where, according to Mushrif, the Brahmanist elements subtly and intelligently play their cards insulating the organization from all other state and central agencies.
 
 Under the pretext of ‘Top Secret Information’ and ‘Secret Operation’, there is no communication between various government agencies pertaining to PMO, MHA, MoD and MFA regarding matters concerning IB’s activities.
 
 The book according to the author has been written with a dual purpose of trying to find out answers to a number of questions regarding communalism in India and salute Hemant Karkare for exposing an all-pervasive and fast growing Brahmanist terror-network that got away with almost everything that it did blaming it on Muslims and then ‘proving’ it too. This of course only till Karkare busted the sinister gang of the rabid Hindutva zealots, bringing to fore the deadly nexus between Brahmanist forces, police, intelligence agencies and some army officers.
 
 Despite the presence of some RSS elements in RAW, Mushrif asserts there is a marked difference between the two organizations. “The RAW was set up twenty years after independence by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and hence it could not be Brahmanised as much as the IB, though serious efforts were made to that end too,” writes Mushrif, adding “There have been many officers in the RAW professing Brahmanist ideology but they could only be called as one-off cases.”
 
 Since the role of RAW is predominantly related to focusing on Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Sri Lanka and other countries, Mushrif writes it has a very little role to play in the internal developments of the country. The author points out an interesting fact to illustrate how communally motivated the IB is. Till 1993, there was not a single Muslim officer in the organization. The IB was formed immediately after the independence in 1947.
 
 Putting in place a multitude of media reports and analysis, the author backs his assertions up successfully by doing a comparative study of these stories and drawing conclusions. Every question raised by Mushrif has a sense to it. He questions a number of findings related to terror incidents, including the December 13 Parliament attack.
 
 Whilst he uses a number of media reports and news items to enunciate his view point, Mushrif also refers to the absolute control that the Brahmanists have over media.
 
 “Media is a very powerful weapon in the hands of the Brahmanists, and they use it very effectively. They have gained a near total control over the media from the beginning and have very jealously held on to it,” goes the author, adding “One doesn’t know at what level and in which capacity they are ensconced in the print and electronic media and who is actually calling the shots. They are like electrons, which are not seen, but their presence is certainly felt. Barring a few exceptions, if one reads any mainstream newspaper, we get a feeling some Brahmanist force is controlling it.”
 
 Mushrif’s claims would appear readily true to everybody who has followed the sudden flurry and the growth of a umber of news channels that coincided with the rise of the NDA in the nineties. An organized Muslim bashing by these channels is no secret. And their sustained efforts to help police and other agencies in creating and publicizing monsters like Indian Mujahideen and Deccan Mujahideen have successfully worked for the Brahmanists.
 
 Although a commoner is prone to believing such high drama  with ease because of the way media presents it, the fact remains that there is no proof that these organizations actually exist or that they are a creation of the Muslims. An investigative story run by Tehelka some time back found nothing anti-national about SIMI, the Muslim student organization that has been demonized by police and media.
 
 After going through the book, one wonders how this all-encompassing menace could be tackled. However secular the ruling party at the Centre may be, would it be possible to make India truly secular when the policies of the nation are drafted by these satanic forces?

spine-chilling breakthrough

The irony of the situation is trhta the intelligence agencies of India, particularly RAW and IB are no more secular in outlook and conduct, since the last 20 years or so these organisations of national importance have been badly infiltered in by fascist Brahmanical forces like RSS.
