Mockery of Amnesty

Amnesty International did not even try to raise anything similar to a whimper, even though assistance was sought from them (see correspondence on right side), when Roshan Jamal Khan was sentenced by a Spanish Court in a case where no crime was committed, no human life was lost nor any conspiracy proved. But, it issued a statement when 17 bootleggers, indulging in an illegal trade who had destroyed a human life, were sentenced by the UAE. By employing such double standards, the Amnesty International has made a mockery of itself and amnesty also.


A Few Good Men

At the outset, I would like to apologise for the delay in publishing this post containing the names of the journalists who helped us a lot by making the public as well as all concerned authorities aware of the injustice meted out to my brother, Roshan Jamal Khan, in Spain.

The sympathetic reporting by these journalists is a debt that cannot be repaid by us. Besides, highlighting the injustice of the Spanish Government, these journalists have also highlighted the indifference of the Indian Government in securing the release of its law-abiding citizen.

Nevertheless, the continued support of these men & women, who are truly the custodians of righteousness in this age, may, Insha Allah, succeed in securing the release of my brother.

It’s not just Tom Cruise and Demi Moore who can claim to be “A Few Good Men”, but the following journos can also lay claim to be A Few Good Men and Women also :

Press For Justice

Media has always had the good sense to distinguish right from wrong. Be it a small skirmish, fake encounter or big terror acts, the media has always distinguished the wrong from the wronged. Indian media, being free and independent, has always presented facts in the right perspective and highlighted injustices wherever it is being perpetuated. As such, Indians know what button to press to seek justice if it has not been properly dispensed. Therefore, Indians should be grateful that they have an independent media unlike some of its neighbouring countries.

After my brother, Roshan Jamal Khan, was arrested in Spain, the Indian fourth estate stood like a pillar of moral support for us. It gave wide coverage to the wrongful arrest of my brother by the Spanish police. It highlighted his detention for nearly 2 years without trial. I, therefore, wish to express my gratitude to the following newspapers through this post :

  • Indian Express

  • The Times of India

  • Hindustan Times

  • Mumbai Mirror

  • Mid-day

  • Press Trust of India (PTI)

  • United News of India (UNI)

  • Loksatta

  • Navbharat Times

  • Inquilab

  • Urdu Times

  • Rashtriya Sahara

  • Daily Hindustan

  • Nai Duniya

  • Dainik Jagran

  • Amar Ujala
