Should we trust a terrorist? Twitter war over David Headley’s revelation


26/11 accused David Headley’s revelation that Ishrat Jahan was a member of the terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba, has kicked off a new twitter debate.

Headley, while testifying before a Mumbai court on Thursday via video-link from the US, said that Ishrat Jahan, who was killed in police encounter in 2004, was a Lashkar member.

He said, “Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi told me about botched operation of Muzammil in India, he explained about the operation. The operation was about to shoot police at some naka. One woman LeT named Ishrat Jahan was involve d.”

The Gujarat’s BJP government has often been accused of carrying out a fake encounter of Ishrat calling it extra-judicial murder.

But the new revelation by Headley on Ishrat’s identity has ignited an intense debate on social media platforms.

While the supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other nationalists have launched scathing attack against their rivals using ‘i-told-you-so’ analogy, others questioned the deposition of a terrorist.

Here’s an example of how the twitter conversation is shaping up on Ishrat Jahan.
