The family members of Bilal Ahmad Kawa ,who was arrested in Delhi in connection with the Red Fort attack case, on Friday termed his arrest illegal and accused police of framing him in a fake case. They also said that he was never absconding and also owns a house in Delhi. The family and relatives blamed the media for projecting an “innocent civilian” as a “terrorist” and demanded his immediate release. According to his relatives, Ahmad is married and a father to two young daughters. The family members and their relatives demonstrated in the city’s Press Colony on Friday.

They said Bilal Ahmad owns a house near Sadar Bazar, New Delhi, and had gone to the national capital for a medical check-up. “My son went to New Delhi for a checkup as he has a health problem. His brother who lives in Delhi told him to come and he was detained at the airport,’’ said Ahmad’s mother Fatima Begum.

She said that if he was involved in militancy, he would have never gone to Delhi on his own name. “Now my son is being framed in a fake case. He was a frequent traveller to Delhi.’’

She said Ahmad was carrying household and food items when he was picked up by the police at the airport. ‘’The claims of police that my son was planning an attack on January 26 are all fake and fabricated. After his arrest, police told us that he will be released and asked us not to tell anyone about his arrest. But then they released the news in the media.’’

Bilal’s cousin asked that if police were looking for him, how come he managed to get all sorts of documents on his own name. “His house is located near a CRPF camp in Kashmir. There are eight lakh troopers. How come they didn’t arrest him if he was absconding,’’ he said.

Accusing the media of portraying Ahmad’s arrest in a wrong way, he said, “They are forcing people of Kashmir to pick up gun, like they forced PhD scholar Mannan Wani and Burhan Wani.”

    Media these days are the mouthpiece of Govt. particularly Modi Govt. which publishes only things in the way that this Govt. and its Police want it to be published. On the one hand Rajnath Singh the home Minister is on the record that all people in J K are not the terrorist but its police is working as if who ever they find they b them as terrorist. This is one way Govt. helps the society in being angry resulting in taking up arms knowing it well that Govt. is much stronger than an individual. Modi spoke for the youth of Kashmir that those whose hands should be on the mouse should not be on the trigger. But what is this ?

            Hadith About Drinking CAMEL - U-Ri-NE - Sahih Al-Bukhari Narrated Anas: “The climate of Medina did not suit some people, so the Prophet Mohammed ordered them to follow his shepherd, i.e. his camels, and drink their milk and U-RI-NE. So they followed the shepherd that is the camels and drank their milk and U-RI-NE till their bodies became healthy. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels. When the news reached the Prophet Mohammed, he sent some people in their pursuit. When they were brought, he cut their hands and feet and their eyes were bu-r-neD and Br-and-ed with heated pieces of iron.” Prophet Mohammed and his followers than drank camel U-RI-NE.::::: Sahih Al Bukhari - Volume 7, Book 71, hadith Number 590:.---Jai hind.

              Bible quotes:-Jesus served his own uri-ne in a party being drunk (btw Jesus was a drunkard), and thereafter Jesus preached people to drink uri-ne. Jesus, after getting drunk offering people to drink his uri-ne, thereafter, Jesus explicitly teaching/preaching/telling people that those who believe in me can drink and their bellies shall flow rivers of living water. We all know that only living water, which flow from our bellies is uri-ne. And how re-tard-ed one should be to miss that and believe in a convicted felon ( : users4.ev1 /~nami/To_Jerry_Falwell-Who_Was_The_Terrorist.htm) to be his/her god? This is the undeniable evidence that Jesus served his uri-ne and preached urin-e drinking. By the way, we all know that Jesus was a freeloader Paul sucked Timothy’s pe:n:is ( : geocities /noorullah /shamoun-nursing ) as we read:--King James version gospel:--according to John:- chapter:7: V:37 and chapter:7 V:38,--Jai hind.
