The Fight Against Terror Drill

After the Constitutional Court of Spain refused to admit our plea, we approached the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) for justice. Since we approached the ECHR, the Spanish authorities have lost their sleep. Knowing fully well that their case cannot stand scrutiny in an independent court, they have started resorting to ridiculous ways to sabotage the case.

Since the last few months, Roshan Jamal Khan is being subjected to racial slurs. His religion is also being subjected to insults. He is also asked inappropriate questions about his religious belief. He is being subjected to mental torture to break his brave, fighting spirit.

Recently, the Spanish police authorities took photos of him in the prison with the books and magazines that he reads. Roshan Jamal Khan just cannot read inflammatory articles or crime novels as all the books and magazines are scrutinized by the prison authorities before being given to the prisoners. And, how does it concern the police authorities when the highest court of Spain has closed the case by sentencing Roshan Jamal Khan? How can the police probe a person once he has been sentenced? Or, do the police authorities want to post pictures on Facebook?

Earlier, the prison authorities had returned his legal case file that was sent to him by post from Spain itself citing security reasons. What could his case file have endangered is beyond common sense? Even the small, religious booklets sent to him from India, to provide answers to all the inappropriate questions about our religion, was returned.

A word of appreciation for the exemplary, apathetic attitude of the Indian embassy and the Indian Government wouldn’t be out of place here. Leave alone raising even a whimper of protest or helping Roshan Jamal Khan, the Indian Government did not even think it worthwhile to monitor the proceedings in the court.

It was only once that an Indian diplomat visited Roshan Jamal Khan in prison – in February 2011 after the Spanish Supreme Court judgment. That also was to rub salt into his wounds. The diplomat asked Roshan Jamal Khan who was paying for his legal defense. Roshan Jamal Khan told the diplomat that this question was irrelevant now. He said that it would have been better had the diplomat at least come for the hearings if not provided legal help. Thereafter, there was no other visit by any Indian diplomat. The question that comes to mind is what prevented the Indian Government from helping its citizen when its own investigative agencies (CBI & ATS) had given a clean chit to Roshan Jamal Khan? Why has it remained a mute spectator to the plight of Roshan Jamal Khan caught in the fight against terror drill?

All agencies involved in falsely implicating Roshan Jamal Khan in this terror case seem to have panicked after we approached ECHR for justice and are trying to save their skins. But, in panic, they will surely commit more blunders that will expose their phony fight against terrorism.
