Watch! “Terrorist Bitta Karate proudly says after killing 20 Pandits, I lost count” in a sting video!

The launching of Republic News Channel has one positive side effect on Mainstream Media. All the Pak apologist news channels are suddenly faking patriotism for TRP. The Pro-Separatism anchors like Rajdeep Sardesai are mimicking Arnab Goswami by faking disgust and fury against Hurriyat Activists. Republic Channel has emerged as number one with 52% viewership in its very first week. The reason for the instant popularity of this channel is that they have exposed prominent leaders like Lalu Yadav and Shashi Tharoor with the Sting Audio tapes that no channel dared to show all these months/years.

To compete with the popularity of Republic, India Today has dared to telecast an old video all of a sudden. It is a video of an interview of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) leader Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bitta Karate explaining the way they conduct Kashmir Unrest and how much they get paid by Pakistan for the same.  There is an old video of 90’s wherein the militant had shamelessly boasted about killing more than 20 Kashmiri Pandits. Whether the news is covered by India Today to compete with the popularity of Republic or else, we Indians welcome it.

In the explosive video, the mass murderer by his own admission, Bitta Karate had killed more than 20 Kashmiri Pandits. “I used to kill whoever they gave orders to kill. I could have killed my own mother or brother. I shot each Kashmiri Pandit victim either in the head or the heart and never missed my target. After killing 20 Kashmiri Pandits , I lost count of numbers!” The ruthless young murderer had spoken with conviction in 90’s.

In spite of such a crystal clear statement of confession, the Judge N D Wani had released the terrorist because the prosecution had shown no interest in the case! The brutal murderer got away with more than 20 murders and the Congress which was in rule in Jammu and Kashmir back then, were just mute spectators. The brainwashed Mass murderer told unapologetically that his first victim was a young Pandit from Kashmir named Satish Kumar Tikoo who was suspected to be RSS activist.

Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bitta Karate , after 16 years in jail, got scot-free from the Murder charges in spite of a confession in 2006. Since a decade, he has served his life wholeheartedly for spreading Terrorism in Kashmir. In the recent tapes, now middle-aged Bitta Karate is seen handling separatist movement activities of JKLF. He is seen answering in a sting video wherein the reporter asks, “Do Pakistani funds come first to Geelani and then he distributes further?” and Bitta Karate replies “Everyone gets the funds directly from Pakistan…Geelani, Yasin Malik, me….I got Rs 70 Cr for my role playing in the Kashmir Unrest!”

The irony is that today Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bitta Karate is playing an important role in Kashmir Unrest on behalf of JKLF as a Senior Hurriyat Leader. The Terrorist is caught confessing that most of the stone pelters work for a whole day pelting stones at the army personnel for just an evening meal!

Here is the full video of the coverage by India Today anchor Rahul Kanwal. For how long had the channel sat on the explosive sting video tape is another question. The good news is that the competition is making way for a true journalism.
