One Response to Ajit Kumar Doval appointed National Security Advisor

  1. Ajit Kumar Doval as National Security Adviser: Will prove to be ‪#‎Modi‬’s Himalayan blunder
    During the Lok Sabha election campaign many people including some activists and even some Muslim leaders made Muslims believe that given the absence of communal riots, bomb blasts, fake encounters, and arrests of innocent Muslims in Gujarat during the last about 5 years, Mr Narendra Modi would follow the same policy once be comes PM.
    A good number of gullible Muslims fell prey to this propaganda and hoped of the best. But with the appointment of Mr Ajit Kumar Doval, a known Muslim baiter as a National Security Adviser their hopes have been dashed to pieces.
    Being an ex-Intelligence Bureau chief there is hardly any doubt that he would not continue IB’s policy. We will not be surprised if series of bomb blasts, fake encounters and arrest of innocent Muslims starts again. Mr Doval will prove to be a worse national security ill adviser than Mr MK Narayanan.
    Mr Narendra Modi will do well to rectify his mistake; else he will repent for this Himalayan blunder.
