Excellent piece in Swarajya by Mr Jagannathan. The ex – Home Secy has just fallen short of calling the Ishrat Jehan encounter as a genuine one. But after his revelation that crucial contents (the fact that the 4 persons gunned down, including Ishrat Jehan, in the police operation were indeed terrorists) of the affidavit were edited to suit the requirement of his political bosses, it becomes irrelevant whether the encounter is genuine or fake.
I mean does it matter whether a batsman hits a six of the front foot or back? In the record books a six would be registered against his run tally in the game.
The disturbing aspect is the party in power used even national security issues to settle political scores even if it meant compromising national security.
As expected, this issue in not on the front pages of Indian newspapers as it would mean the media is going to have to eat crow.
