Sudhir Sawant (President, Bahujan Samaj Federation), Dolphy D'Souza (President, Bombay Catholic Sabha), Feroze Mithiborwala (President, Awami Bharat) & Kishore Jagtap (President, Ganai Sanskrutik Andolan).

Venue: Press Club, next to Azad Maidan, CST.Date: Monday 23rd November 2009 / Time: 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

We unequivocally condemn the witch-hunt that Mahesh Bhattji & his entire family are being subjected to. Mahesh Bhattji as well all know is amongst the very few people from the world of Cinema & the Arts, that has unflinchingly stood by the cause of Secularism & Democracy. Never has there been a time when he has not heeded the call of the oppressed. He has always been there at the forefront of the battle against the forces of religious extremism & obscurantism that threaten to undermine & destroy India & thus the reason that he is being targeted.The way that sections of the police & the media have been attempting to disparage & malign Mahesh Bhattji over the "Headley affair" is truly despicable.
Thus we now call upon the social & political movements to stand by Mahesh Bhattji & extend their solidarity.

The entire matter over the Headley matter has grabbed the daily front pages & airwaves. The Headley matter does prove one point that we have been continuously stating that there was an involvement of certain cells within the country without which the 26/11 terror attack would not have been successful & this has also been attested to by the ex-NSG chief.

It is also clear that the FBI & the CIA, the premier Imperialist organizations that spawn terror, wars, assassinations & coups are using the tragedy of 26/11 to entrench themselves into the minds of the Indian people, albeit with the total co-operation of our government & the corporate media.

The second point is that interestingly Rahul Bhatt himself felt that Headley was a CIA agent & has said so in a report of the Hindustan Times.

Rahul Bhatt who has was courageous & honest to step forward & approach the police on his own accord has stated that - "Headley was passionate about fitness, and Military Special Forces". He told Bhatt and Varak about the Delta Force of the US military and the top-secret force called Special Activities Division of the CIA that carries out covert political action and paramilitary operations. “He claimed to have done a stint with the US army,” said Bhatt. “I always wondered whether he was a CIA agent and used to jokingly call him Agent Headley.”

The fact that Headley was operating from a Training Gym (Moksh), extremely close to the US Consulate at Bridge Candy, as well as the fact that he lived in the most elite areas of the city, atleast proves the fact that he had access to vast sums of money & more over was very confident of operating very openly in what he personally considered to be a friendly & protected environment, a base from which he would travel & execute his orders. He was also very friendly with the personnel at the US consulate & was on a first name basis with a number of US Consulate officials that he met at the gym.. He also shared his house with other White individuals. Similarly Ken Haywood a suspect in the Ahmedabad blasts has received training in the US army & was connected to extremist Christian organizations.

In 1998, Daoud Gilani (David Headley), then 38, was convicted of conspiring to smuggle heroin into the country from Pakistan. Court records show that after his arrest, he provided so much information about his own involvement with drug trafficking, which stretched back more than a decade, and about his Pakistani suppliers, that he was sentenced to less than two years in jail and later went to Pakistan to conduct undercover surveillance operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration.

In 2006, he changed his name to David Headley, apparently to make border crossings between the US and other countries easier, court documents say. At this stage it is possible that Headley then began to work directly for the FBI / CIA covert operations & inspite of his heroin smuggling record, he was given all the right documents.

Over the course of the last two years, he flew in & out of India very easily. The timings of Headley’s visit do coincide with the blasts, most of which we know have been carried out by the Abhinav Bharat.

Worse, both the visas to Headley & Rana were issued "under the discretion of the Consul General" in apparent violation of rules under which clearance of the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs is required for any person born in Pakistan. Moreover the Indian Ambassador has discretionary powers that were used in this case (TOI, 23/11/09). Thus even the penetration of the CIA/FBI within the Indian bureaucracy is highly disturbing & poses a grave challenge to our national security. Do note that the Ambassador under question is Mr. Ronen Sen.

In our estimation Headley is an ISI-LeT operative & aligned to the CIA-FBI-ISI nexus.

Also Headley's connections with Riyaz Bhatkal of the Indian Mujahedeen (IM), go to prove that Headley was working at the behest of the FBI & the IB. That is if one understands that the IM is the creation & creature of the IB. In his recent book “Who Killed Karkare??” SM Mushrif (ex-IG of Police Maharashtra) has clearly implicated the IB in fomenting terror attacks within the country.

Then why is the FBI targeting Headley who is their own asset??

That matter too can be simply explained. Since the Afghan wars of 1979, a number of Pakistanis who were part of the ISI, also worked for the FBI & CIA. To the extent that LeT operatives were deployed by the CIA in Kosovo.

The fact of the matter is that the CIA & the FBI were involved in the planning & execution of Mumbai 26/11. Those who still doubt that only need to answer a very simple question. According to reports that appeared in the 'Outlook' magazine, in mid-September the CIA warned the Government of India about the coming terror attack.

Thus after using Headley in the Mumbai 26/11 terror attacks the FBI is now treating him as a sacrificial lamb. The events over the past year have entrenched the FBI deep into the defense & security apparatus of the country.

Our questions are only two-fold:
1) Why did not the CIA warn the Civilian Govt. of Pakistan or the Military Chief Kayani or the ISI itself ????

2) Now that we all know that the US does pay 1/3rd of the operational & other expenses of the ISI, how is it possible that the CIA forgot or did not inform the ISI or any of the other wings of the Pakistan government of the impending 26/11 attack ????

Thus the CIA & FBI as well as other US & Israeli covert organizations are very deep into Pakistan as we all know. It is the CIA & MOSSAD who are using Pakistan to launch terror attacks across the world. To further their agenda of global hegemony, weapons trade, control over resources & the growing security industry.

What ever your conspiracy theories are:
Whether or not CIA is involved, ISI-Pak army is certainly involved and you guys are still trying to protect Pakistan. Therein lies the problem and the loss of credibility of Mash Bhatt and family
