In the wake of a protest organized against CAA and NRC on 12/28/19 across the Indian Embassy. It could be a trap to portray Indians and Indian Muslims in a negative light by someone. Reports from the Wall Street Journal, Daily Beast, and Asahi Shimbun including my note at Indian Panorama.
I have had a bad experience as a listed speaker in a protest against the Muslim ban across the White House – thank God, I did not attend the event as I disagreed with the Anti-American slogans and placards. I designed the placards to criticize the specific acts and even Trump or Hillary, but nothing anti-American was acceptable to me. They chose not to accept my suggestions and I did not attend the event, but my name was recorded as a speaker.
Two years later it was discovered that it was Russian conspiracy, several papers have reported it, including Wall Street Journal, Daily Beast and others. I have written a short version of the Indian Panorama. The Japanese Paper Asahi wrote in detail and released on the same day Mueller’s report was released.
“Do you see a correlation in getting the innocent Hindus to develop anti-Muslims sentiments through the communal riots, leading into to complete takeover of the Uttar Pradesh? The likes of which were done here in the United States. Did Russia pay for those riots through the Sangh Parivar organizations to weaken the Indian Democracy? Both Modi and Trump have a special affection for Putin, and both of them want to emulate Putin.”
The Japanese write Tadashi
Tadashi, there is a full chapter on Sharia and Fixing Sharia in the book American Muslim Agenda available at Amazon, Kindle, Barnes & Noble.
Thank you so much for everything.
I attached a web link.
It is written in Japanese but I quickly translated into English (not perfect, I am sorry).
“Anti-Trump pretending approach” Contact from Russia/ activist says his experience
Special counsel, Mueller’s investigation of “Russia Gate” over the 2016 US presidential election ended without confirming the Trump camp conspiracy with Russia. However, aiming at the division of the United States on a theme that produces social discord, such as religion and immigration, Russia’s clever work benefitted President Trump became clear one after another. An activist who received contact from the Russian side explained one end of the trick.
■ ” fake placard” at the demonstration
“I want you to come and speak at the demonstration against Trump’s policy”. Activist Mike Ghouse (67), who lives in Washington, received a phone call from a stranger in the summer of 2016 when the presidential election reached its footpath. He had an accent in his English. I thought, “He was a fast speaking person. Like he didn’t want to give room to have a discussion”
The man said he was a member of the group named “United Muslims of America”. It was a demonstration in Washington against Trump’s “Muslim ban”.
Mr. Ghouse is a prominent activist who advocates pluralism as a Muslim. He was a frequent commentator on the conservative FOX TV. Mr. Ghouse agrees with legitimate demonstrations. But the man’s claim was excessive. “Muslims will rule the United States one day.” Mr. Ghouse repulsed, “It will never happen. Don’t even talk about it. It will create problems.”
This group was a fictional one that Russia created to intervene in the presidential race. Mueller indicted 13 Russians including a businessman close to Putin’s office last February for using social media to develop organized intelligence operations. The indictment stated that the strategic goal of them was to ” to sow discord in the U.S. political system” Themes that are easy to create divisions, such as immigration, race, religion, etc., were selected, and numerous posts were made online.
The fictional organization that contacted Mr. Ghouse was also mentioned in the indictment. Apparently disguised from the support of Mrs. Clinton. However, It was in touch with Americans to put up the placards such as one that Mr. Clinton does not say, ”
I think Sharia Law will be a powerful new direction of freedom.” It was a method to superimpose Mr. Clinton on a claim which general Americans oppose and induce to support Trump.
Mr. Ghouse also received some signs by email. Some of them were anti-American. Mr. Ghouse told him, “These signs are not acceptable. Should be more respecting other individuals.” and did not participate.
Mr. Trump, who repeats the remarks that divide the society, became the president.
Mr. Ghouse thinks Russia meddling was successful. “For democracy to survive, finding the truth is very important. Without checks and balance, there is no democracy” Mr. Ghouse said the significance of the investigation of the “Russia gate”.
