The daughter of India’s renowned historian, Irfan Habib, has slammed “sanghis’ for spreading ‘lies’ about her association with the junior analyst of the Moody’s Analytics.
Moody’s Analytics last Friday had warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the country may lose domestic and global credibility if he didn’t rein in the members of his party responsible for creating an atmosphere of hate in India.
Embarrassed by the assessment, the supporters of Narendra Modi government took to twitter making light of this warning with some linking Irfan Habib’s daughter, Saman Habib, to the Moody’s analyst Faraz Syed.
Saman has taken to Facebook lashing out at the BJP supporters while clarifying that she had no relationship with the Moody’s analyst.
She wrote, “The sanghis have gone and married me off to Faraz Syed, an analyst for Moody’s who gave that report with a thumbsdown for the Modi govt. The poor chap is being dismissed as ‘marxist historian Irfan Habib’s son-in-law’ among the twitteratti. For all those who care to know, I haven’t ever seen Faraz Syed and am actually married to Amit Misra!!”
The eminent historian, Irfan Habib, had angered the RSS sympathisers after he compared the RSS, the BJP’s ideological mentor, with the terrorist group IS.
Speaking at an event in Delhi, Habib had said, “There is not much difference between the RSS and ISIS as far their wisdom is concerned.”
Saman is working as scientist at Central Drug Research Institute.
