What if Kenneth Haywood was Karim Hasan?

Kenneth Haywood is safely esconced in his Arizona home in America, leaving a trail of unanswered questions about the email that was allegedly sent through his wi-fi internet connection just before the Ahmedabad blasts.

Had the email been sent from the connection of one, say, Karim Hasan, would he have been so fortunate? He would certainly have been declared the mastermind of the blasts and a dozen other cases would have also been slapped on him.

But Kenneth Haywood is an American citizen. He is no Karim Hasan. Editor, Roznama Sahara, Aziz Burney in his series of special editorials, has raised the issue. "He was called by ATS but he didn't go, the narco test was not conducted, why?

...even his passport was not seized and later no lookout notice was issued at the airports and he managed to slip out of the country so easily....

"The escape of any other citizen during the course of investigation wouldn't have raised a storm but in this case, there was no brouhaha, why?" questions Burney. "He had a confirmed ticket, proving that it was all well-planned". "Did the US pressurise the Indian security agencies in letting him out?"

But Kenneth Haywood is no Karim Hasan.

Also, if you still consider me a cynic and suffering with a persecution complex. Read this:

There is an Indian in America who was in a similar position of Kenneth Haywood. About two years back his computer was traced to send emails to the president of US George W. Bush and the Vice-President Dick Cheney.
His name is Vikram Buddhi who is son of a navy captain. And he is languishing in a US jail.
Why in this case there was such haste? Because he was White and an American?...Read this at Twocircles.Net

It used to be like this: Chamar ki aulad hai band ker do, Bhangi ki aulad hai band ker do etc: the language of police walas. Treatment used to be different for Pundit Ji's son, Thakur Saheb ki aulad. Now: It is miyan hai sala: band ker do. Time has changed so has the image of muslims. They are gradually becoming the untouchables of 21st century to be discriminated upon.
worth reading this story on CNN.

This is happening in heartland of democracy,USA. This country used to advocate for human rights ,civil liberties, freedom of speech, religion, press etc
that is engraved in US constitution..........

Janaab Adnan,

There seem to be two reasons:
1. Being a White
2. Being non-Muslim

Whites are elites, they are treated exceptionally well both in the stupid Arab world and the foolish East.

Why reason #2? Would it be same if here were an American Muslim? I sadly say 'No'.

BTW, he was quite outspoken in the Media about police demanding him bribe. It could be a factor too.

How true! Untouchables of 21st century!!
I agree, since I personally know multiple people from IT industry who were denied rented accomodation for being a Muslim, by the Brahmins & Jains, in the upcoming areas of Poona.

This accommodation issue has been mentioned by so many people.

There might be cases where the reason is because the person is muslim.
But frankly, i think most of the time the reason is because of the cooking culture. I have seen few of my friends not renting out their house to kerala people as well because they think that kerala people cook fish everyday and hence spoil the house.

That too you have mentioned Brahmins & Jains. Both of them might be very particular about non-vegetarians staying in their house.
