On Thursday, Headley had testified before the court that Ishrat Jahan, a 19-year-old girl from Mumbra near Mumbai, was killed in an unsuccessful Lashkar-e-Toiba operation in Gujarat. Ishrat, who was killed in an alleged fake encounter in Gujarat in 2004, was claimed to have been in an operation along with her associates to kill then chief minister Narendra Modi. Headley’s statement, which he had made earlier in 2010 before the FBI and NIA, created ripples within the BJP and the Congress.

    This Headley deposition (to a Mumbai court) is immensely useful in the legal case ,and fo building a case against stan for not taking action against 26/11 and Pathankot conspirators and therefore no further talks on stan . Please continue the charade of "people to people contacts", but continue to harm stan at every given opportunity ...

      That's the reason Congress wanted to give "Bihar ki Beti" a clean cheat (by conuous silence) so the Jehadis are encouraged more to deploy the "right" people in "right" places! Can any of Congi supporter deny this?

                  Destruction of any Shiv Sena et by a Muslim group, albeit stani, would have created a riot and further cleaving of Hindu Muslim unity in India. Sickular media / Congress and non-BJP parties may like to keep politics away and recognise the insidious design of stan.

                      The congress leaders had great capacity to judge that Modi will emerge as a great leader.We should salute that skill in the congress leaders.But they abused the skill to give trouble to Modi in whatever way possible including taking anti-national steps.
