Video-sharing platform YouTube earns hundreds of millions of dollars every year as advertisement revenue from India – a country with 1,441,719,852 population. According to the community standard of YouTube, it prohibits using the platform for spreading hatred and violent extremism. But unfortunately, for years, an individual named Pinaki Bhattacharya has been running vile propaganda against India, Hindus and large business houses while he also has been giving jihadist instigation to his over 1.7 million followers against India and Hindus.

Furthermore, it is learnt, sitting in France, Pinaki Bhattacharya has been secretly plotting terrorist attacks on Indian Embassy and consulates, while he also is organizing a group of terrorists to launch terrorist attacks on Bangladeshi business houses and stores selling Indian products.

It is further learnt, Pakistani spy agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) as well as several multinational companies are funding Pinaki’s anti-India activities.

According to community standards of YouTube, harassment and cyberbullying, harmful or dangerous content and hate speech are totally prohibited.

Pinaki Bhattacharya violets all as his contents are filled with harassment and cyberbullying, harmful or dangerous content and hate speech. A careful review of the contents on his YouTube channel shall evidently prove it. Despite such a fact, Pinaki has been continuing notorious activities as well as spreading hate speech through his channel on YouTube. In this case, one may ask – why YouTube authorities have not taken this serious matter into notice and imposed a ban on Pinaki Bhattacharya? Why social media platforms such as Meta (Facebook) and X (formerly known as Twitter) too are reluctant on this matter.

It is essential to ask – why are YouTube, X and Meta allowing Pinaki Bhattacharya in running vile propaganda against India, Hindus and Indian products? Why is he also indirectly giving instigation to causing harm to Hindus and Indians? Why authorities concerned in New Delhi and Indian missions abroad have not taken any steps in this regard?

Who is Pinaki Bhattacharya?

Few years ago, Pinaki Bhattacharya was kicked-out of his family by his parents for leaving Hindu dharma and embracing Islam at the influence of Tablighi Jamaat. His father Shyamal Bhattacharya, a school teacher, writer and drama actor grew extremely annoyed at his son’s religious conversion and subsequently an angry father declared him abandoned and ceased all sorts of communication with Pinaki. Pinaki was born in Bogra district in Bangladesh and graduated from Rajshahi Medical College in 1992. This medical college is known as the epicenter of Jamaat-e-Islami activities.

Pinaki’s wife – who also is a physician distanced herself from him on knowing about his ISI connections and cordial relations with Islamists, jihadists and terrorists. During his stay in Bangladesh, a “neo-Muslim” Pinaki under the garb of producing life-saving drugs in his pharmaceutical factory, was in reality, producing illicit sexual drugs, counterfeit medicine and ‘Yaba’ tablets – a dangerous drug containing a mixture of methamphetamine and caffeine and distributing these contraband items through underworld crime rackets in Bangladesh. As such illegal activities caught the attention of law enforcement agencies, Pinaki Bhattacharya fled Bangladesh and landed in France, where he sought asylum with false claims of a “political victim” of the Awami League government. While running business of contraband medicines, Pinaki Bhattacharya was regularly forcing his female staffs into sexual relations.

In France, Pinaki has two jobs – operating an illegal hawala business and running social media accounts including YouTube channels – while his YouTube channel has almost two million subscribers. Majority of the audience of Pinaki’s YouTube channel are half-educated and uneducated people from Bangladesh and West Bengal, while he also has substantial viewers from within Bangladeshi laborers in various countries, including Malaysia and the Middle East. In France, he maintains three employees for his activities – one of whom is a Palestinian female member of Hamas.

Through his YouTube channel, Pinaki Bhattacharya, an asset of Pakistani spy agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) has been spreading venom and running vile propaganda against Bharat, Hindu dharma, Bharatiya Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as well as anti-Islamist and anti-jihadist forces in Bharat and Bangladesh. Other targets of Pinaki Bhattacharya are the United States, Israel, Britain, European Union and secularist forces. Pinaki has also been supportive of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir as well as other parts of Bharat. He has been one of the defenders of Afghan Taliban, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. He openly runs propaganda in favor of Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and even Al Qaeda.

On February 22, 2204 Pinaki put up a Facebook post telling Bangladeshi directors and actors not to work in West Bengal-based OTT platform Hoichoi or any other Indian platforms. He appealed to Bangladeshi actor Mosharraf Karim to not promote his upcoming movie ‘Hubba’ for Hoichoi. The post ends with a veiled threat to Bangladeshi directors and actors. Pinaki Bhattacharya wrote he hopes he would not have to be tough on them.

In one of his videos that has garnered 7.1 lakh views within five days, Pinaki Bhattacharya has compared Hindutva to Zionism, expressed concerns over India’s growing influence in the world and named me as both an Indian and Israeli agent in Bangladesh. He also calls me an enemy of the people and asks his supporters to bully me on social media by branding me as “bastard”.

In the same video, Pinaki had prominently promoted a video published on a Pakistani YouTube channel named ‘The Blank Page Official’ stating: “India has activated powerful assets to counter Bangladesh’s India Out campaign” and made foul attempts of branding Blitz as an “asset” of India and Israel. It also criticized Blitz for condemning October 7 Hamas pogrom in Israel and for terming Hamas as monsters.

According to an Indian website, Pinaki Bhattacharya is anti-Hindu and anti-Bharat extremist. He has been regularly publishing contents defaming Hindu dharma. He even goes further by branding every Hindu as “bastards” while he also does the same with Bangladeshi citizens and media outlets that confront “India Out” activities.

Pinaki became popular amongst radical Muslims and anti-Bharat and anti-Hindu blocs in Bangladesh and Pakistan for his jihadist and anti-Bharat publications. He persuaded Bangladeshi Muslims to wage jihad against the Hindus and join jihadist forces in Jammu and Kashmir in Bharat. He also applauds Hamas for killing Israelis and raping Israeli and Jewish girls and women.

It may be mentioned here that, Al Qaeda-connected Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its ideological allies including Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) are funding, patronizing and running “India Out” notoriety in Bangladesh, while recently, Dhaka’s leading English newspaper The Daily Star published a lengthy opinion editorial criticizing Blitz and me for branding BNP as an ultra-Islamist and Al Qaeda-connected force. On February 1, 2024, The Daily Star editor Mahfuz Anam gave a huge space in his newspaper to an Islamist propagandist named Qadaruddin Shishir.

The most disconcerting revelation pertains to Shishir’s past. During his formative years at university, he was an active participant in Jamaat-e-Islami, an ultra-Islamist militant group in Bangladesh. This isn’t mere hearsay; it’s corroborated by multiple Facebook posts from Shishir, which were later deleted but have been documented. Such affiliations are not to be taken lightly. They raise a red flag about his current role, given that extremist groups like Jamaat-e-Islami often engage in ideological indoctrination that can have a lasting impact.

In the February 1 propaganda stuff, Jamaat-e-Islami’s activist Qadarudding Shishir made foul attempts of hiding facts about involvement of ultra-Islamist Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), which also has connections with Al Qaeda from its recently launched ‘India Out’ notoriety.

Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s hosting Al Qaeda group including Ayman al-Zawahiri was first exposed by eminent journalist and counterterrorism expert Alex Perry, who in a TIME magazine article on April 14, 2002 had exposed Al Qaeda kingpin al-Zawahiri and other members of the terrorist group’s arrival and stay in Bangladesh.

Recently in an interview to Qatari terror-broadcast network Al Jazeera, endorsing BNP’s involvement in “India Out” notoriety, Rumeen Farhana, international affairs secretary of the party said the people of Bangladesh never liked India’s interference in Bangladesh politics. “It’s now crystal clear that India did everything possible to keep the regime in power since 2014”, she alleged.

She said, “Resentment against India reached a boiling point in Bangladesh after Hasina’s Awami League secured a resounding victory in the January 7 elections, capturing 223 seats out of 300 in parliament. Critics alleged the process lacked legitimacy due to the opposition’s boycott and the presence of numerous Awami League-backed independent candidates, raising questions about the fairness of the vote”.

Rumeen Farhana said, “Anti-India public sentiment in Bangladesh goes beyond politics. The border killing, unresolved water sharing of 53 rivers including Teesta, trade deficit all play roles to that”.

This statement of Al Qaeda-connected BNP’s front-ranking leader evidently proves – this party is definitely behind the ongoing “India Out” movement, and at their instructions, BNP activists and its ultra-Islamist andpro-jihadist elements are continuing anti-India propaganda on social media platforms.

It is even learnt from several media reports that members of BNP and its jihadist allies such as Ansar Al Islam (local franchise of AQIS), Hizb ut Tahrir, Hefazat-e-Islam as well as armed cadres of BNP are threatening shop owners and traders in Bangladesh to refrain from selling Indian products. They even are plotting terrorist and arson attacks targeting warehouses of Indian goods.

Taking undue advantage of such evil plots of ultra-Islamist forces, Al Jazeera in its report on February 7, 2024 gave a false description stating – responding to BNP’s “India Out” movement, Bangladeshi consumers have started boycotting Indian products.

Al Jazeera in its report said, “Amid allegations of Indian interference in national elections, there’s a call to boycott Indian goods in Bangladesh. Last week, a supplier for the Indian consumer goods giant Marico faced a chilly reception in Dhaka’s Panthapath area. Grocery shops, usually eager to stock their shelves with its hair oil, cooking oil, body lotion and other products, refused to take new deliveries”.

It further said, “… Simmering anti-India sentiment in Bangladesh has boiled over in the past decade, culminating in public displays such as celebrations in Dhaka last year after India’s loss in the Cricket World Cup final.

“But after last month’s elections in Bangladesh, in which Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina secured a fourth term while the opposition boycotted the polls, a massive “India Out” campaign was launched, alleging Indian interference in Bangladesh politics”.

The Bangladeshi diaspora and opposition groups have fueled this anti-India movement and advocated boycotts of Indian products. This movement mirrors similar campaigns in the Maldives, where Mohamed Muizzu capitalized on anti-India sentiment to win the presidential election.

“In Dhaka, the campaign was launched against the backdrop of India’s traditionally strong ties with Hasina’s government and its strained relationship with the opposition, leading many to believe India favored the status quo”.

Al Jazeera in its anti-Bharat report termed Jamaat-e-Islami activists Pinaki Bhattacharya as “exiled Bangladeshi physician” stating “Exiled Bangladeshi physician Pinaki Bhattacharya, who fled alleged government harassment in 2018, has emerged as the key figure in this burgeoning social media movement accusing Bharat of interfering in Bangladesh’s recent elections to keep Hasina in power.

“Through his more than two million followers across social media platforms, Bhattacharya launched the #BoycottIndia campaign in mid-January, urging them to join “this monumental endeavor”. His call, emphasizing love of homeland and determination to break free from perceived shackles, resonated with thousands”.
