Came across a fellow named Feroze Mithiborwala, an Indian activist who says he’s been a Palestinian supporter since 1967, is active in promoting BDS in India & is an Assad supporter who hangs in Syria with Vanessa Beeley & Eva Bartlett & on the international Assadist circuit with Pepe Escobar & Patrick Henningsen.
In July 2016, the Indian army went on a several month rampage against Kashmiris protesting the execution of the young man whose name cannot be uttered on FB but whose funeral was attended by 600,000 mourners. The army use of pellet munitions against unarmed protesters became an international outrage that exposed the occupation. The scope of the violence was documented all over social media & in leading media around the world, including the NY Times, Al Jazeera, the Guardian-UK.
Isn’t it interesting that in response to such barbarism our man Feroze Mithiborwala joined with others in a petition calling on J & K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to temper the violence, to use minimal force against protesters referred to as “angry mobs.” Most of the petition is addressed to Kashmiri youth, reproaching them for arson, looting, destruction of public property, & attacks on the Indian army of 700,000 soldiers. It is a masked defense of occupation cloaked in a sustained scolding of Intifada.
How does a guy who supports Palestinian Intifada get Kashmiri Intifada so wrong? With the same kind of political methods that aligns him with the forces of counter-revolution in Syria.
This photo which headlined the petition & Scroll article about it clearly shows the relationship of forces between unarmed youth & the Indian army. It contradicts & shames the contents of the petition.
