The tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput has opened a can of worms as the skeletons keep tumbling out of the industry’s closet. Karan Johar has rightfully received much of the blame, but there’s a vile director hiding in plain sight who apart from encouraging nepotism, is also a threat to the national security.
Mahesh Bhatt is a radical Islamist someone who is a self-confessed fan of fugitive Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, Mahesh Bhatt in the past has also defended Osama Bin Laden and Islamic terrorism. Mahesh Bhatt is the rot that is eating away Bollywood.
As Mahesh Bhatt gears up for the release of his film Sadak 2 on Hotstar, videos of him singing endless praises of radical Islamic preacher Zakir Naik who has radicalised unsuspecting Muslim youths to take up arms and unleash terrorism.
In the viral videos, Bhatt can be seen passionately defending Zakir after he was banned from entering in the UK. Bhatt said, “At the onset, let me salute Dr. Zakir Naik for daring to lock horns with the mighty British Empire… I salute his audacity which comes from his Imaan… If he had any grey spot in his heart, he wouldn’t have risked locking horns with these bullies… The world is becoming the most entertained and the least informed one… We, as Indians, owe it to our brother (Zakir Naik) who is national pride, (and) a prized treasure.”
Bhatt has the audacity to address Zakir Naik as the pride of India while completely ignoring how he radicalises Muslim youth. Crossing all limits of devotion, Bhatt urged the Indian government to defend Zakir Naik and allow him to preach in the UK. He said, “They call Dr. Naik the warmonger but history knows who is the warmonger. Are you going to believe in the opinions of those people who have the means to lie, buy wordsmiths, get newspapers, have TV networks by their side to market lies and hang a man like Dr. Naik? I will say No.”
However, Bhatt’s blind devotion of Zakir doesn’t end there. He even wanted to make a movie on Zakir’s life. Appearing on the banned channel, Peace TV, Bhatt claimed, “The life of Zakir Saheb is a fascinating story in itself. It contains material for a feature film. I don’t know whether Zakir Naik will want to play the role of a hero in the movie. We can find someone to play his role, provided he gives me permission to do so. Please get the idea approved from him and then only I can make a film.”
For the uninitiated, Zakir Naik is a radical Islamic preacher currently on the run after being banned by various countries and is hiding in Malaysia, as India looks to extradite him. The controversial televangelist came into limelight when the perpetrators of Dhaka terror attack were said to be inspired by his so-called teachings.
Last year, the National Investigative Agency arrested 127 terrorists with links with ISIS and found that all have been inspired by Zakir’s speeches.
There is a reason why Mahesh Bhatt supports Zakir’s ideology. Bhatt’s son Rahul, was involved in aiding and abetting David Headley, one of the main accused in the 26/11 terror attack. It is reported that just a day before the attack, Headley had informed Rahul to not venture into South Mumbai.
Crossing all lines of decency, right after the 26/11 attacks, Bhatt along with Congress leader Digvijay Singh held a press conference where they claimed that the attacks were hatched by the RSS.
Another video has also surfaced where Mahesh Bhatt is not only seen defending Osama Bin Laden and wishes that former US President George Bush be hanged, he is directly supporting Islamic terrorism as he says that terrorism will continue until the ‘injustice’ isn’t stopped. He then proceeds to deliver an open call for conversion to Islam so as to ‘live with respect’.
Mahesh Bhatt was born in a diverse family with a Muslim mother and a Brahmin father but he was estranged from his father. At the age of 20, he married Lorraine Bright and had Rahul and Pooja with her.
After the news of his affair with the late Parveen Babi came to the fore, the couple got estranged. He then married Soni Razdan without divorcing Lorraine as he then converted to Islam so to enjoy the fruits of polygamy. He has two daughters with Soni Razdan, Alia and Shaheen Bhatt.
Another shining example of Mahesh Bhatt’s vile brain came to the fore when he openly said that he would have married Pooja Bhatt had she not been his daughter. He also did a photo shoot where he was seen kissing his own daughter, Pooja.
Mahesh Bhatt is a creep and a vile human being who perhaps has been radicalised by Zakir Naik. Next time, when you watch his movies, remember the money earned by him can be well used to radicalise unsuspecting youths and wreak havoc in India.
