Who Is Tarek Fatah |What Tarek Fatah Wants


“His continuous hate-mongering coupled with utterly nonsensical statements found him an untapped constituency in India- a country that’s experienced phenomenal rise in the right-wing ideology since BJP coming to power in May 2014.” Rifat Jawaid,


If anyone can answer this simple question in the simplest way, it would be: he is A Poor Old Attention Seeker. Tarek Fatah is the one who is in very urgent need of Indian citizenship; he sees his career and future here in India.

India is and has been the land of talkative political leaders and attention seekers who are known for their talent to befool masses and attract masses. So, is Tarek Fatah is going to be one of those attention seekers?


Tarek Fatah’s Background: Let’s see his background first and try to understand his potentials. Tarek Fatah was born in Pakistan, and there he tried to gain some political mileage, but unfortunately it didn’t work for him. He, because of his disordered attitude, created himself an unbalanced situation. He sensed for his security and left for Saudi Arabia. He lived quietly there for a longer period, as he was very much aware of the consequences, he could have faced for his fragile behavior and twisted opinion.

Ticket To Canada: After spending a long time, he managed to get Canadian visa on the ground of false threat to his life. He found heaven in Canada. There he relished the free society and freedom for his wild opinions which were purely based on trolls and sarcasm. Currently he is working there as a journalist for his articles appear regularly in Toronto Sun.

Tarek Fatah’s Opinions: Tarek Fatah calls himself an atheist and announces all religions and gods are nonsense. But nobody cares about an atheist in Canadian society. And this was intolerable to him as it could be intolerable to any attention seeker. There he also wrote a few books criticizing Islam, Muslims and Pakistan. Since he didn’t have any unique talent in him as a writer or as a reasonable thinker, he couldn’t make an identity in the field but writing and publications.

Surprising, He Supports Donald Trump: Well, not all ‘Muslims’ are against Donald Trumps. Tarek Fatah is one of the staunch supporters of Donald Trump and his opinion to ban Muslims from entering America.

He Hates Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: One cannot love Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau at the same time. Tarek Fatah doesn’t want like Justin Trudeau’s generous attitude, and generally criticizes him for accepting too many ‘Muslim’ immigrants. By the way, Tarek Fatah himself came to this country as an immigrant. A great deal of hypocrisy, isn’t it!

He Fears Muslims: Tarek Fatah has lots of doubts about Muslims and their intentions. He doesn’t feel himself comfortable amongst Muslims in general. Once, he had reportedly denied taking a medical survive from a Muslim doctor. On other occasions he had expressed his resentment when a Muslim security officer was called in after he had received some threats from someone.

“He was a little known writer in Toronto in Canada before he shot to fame using the same methodology that catapulted many other Islamophobes to international fame overnight.” Rifat Jawaid.

He Loves Hinduism And Hindutva: While Muslims in India are living under the terror of Hindutva forces, Tarek Fatah gives such forces a massive support. He finds his roots in Hinduism, and it is his personal choice. But he aggressively suggests Muslims to find their roots in Hinduism; also suggest them to embrace Hinduism. Well, he doesn’t seem to respect Muslim sentiments.

Canada is Not Cool for Him Anymore: As time passed, Canada didn’t seem cool to him anyone. Nobody cared for his fragile opinion, books or reasons. He had no chance for a career in Canadian politics. Surely, he needed another country where he could satisfy his innate need of attention.

India is the Destination: Canada is a safe place so he’d stay here; he certainly cannot go back to Gulf countries or Pakistan; he cannot be that stupid. And suddenly he gets and idea… India, yes India it is.

India is certainly his place; a great place for his future and career. India has everything he needs. India has the people who entertain those who show their fragility of minds. Rakhi Sawant to Veena Mallik, Baba Ramdev to Arvind Kerajiwal, this country is full of such examples. You can even become the PM of this country only if you have the power to gain the attention of masses.

And thus, Tarek Fatah started making small trips to India, attending some small interviews with news channels. Indian news channels also recognized his ability to bring good TRP.

Indian News Channels Love Tarek Fatah: All that Indian news channels need is heavy TRP, in other words traffic to their channels. There are a few state sponsored news channels who deliberately run news and stories in the favour of the political party of the current government. Disclosing the secret: Zee News loves Tarek Fatah.

He is Making and Learning from Him Mistakes: There is a proverb in Hindi which says you cannot make crocodile your enemy, if you have to stay in the same pond. Tarek Fatah, after making some fun of Hinduism, RSS and India, very soon realized that he cannot survive this way. Luckily, he got another idea: lets troll Muslims and Islam, the majority would like it. And then on, he has been trolling and making fun of Muslims, Islam, their customs, and their leaders. He finds his roots in India, he tells Muslims to do what Hindu leaders tell them to do, he tells Muslims to say Vande Mataram, he tells Muslims to change their name to Hindu ones, he brazenly blames Muslims for terrorism, he praises Hindu organizations and hatred spreading Hindu leaders: only to persuade current ruling party which will help him in getting Indian Citizenship. He openly seeks Indian citizenship, so that he can do this on a permanent basis.

Does He Have Political Career In India:  Political Pundits say NO. Tarek Fatah calls himself a communist, but no communist leader has spoken in his favour as of now. While India is seeing student leader Kanhaiya Kumar as a shining communist leader, he calls him an ‘idiot’. There are some states like West Bengal and Kerala where the communists have strong presence due to the strong support of Muslims. But Tarek Fatah doesn’t like Muslims. The Current ruling party of India, BJP, does have a soft corner for him due to his anti-Muslim sentiments and his acclaims for RSS (Hindutva Force).

Though, he cannot bring votes to any certain political party, he can certainly bring good TRP to news channels.

“People like Fatah fail to realise that Indians in general and Indian Muslims in particular don’t need to learn patriotism from a ‘traitor’ like him. A person, who has struggled to return to Pakistan since 1989 wants Indian Muslims to learn all about nationalism from him.” Says Editor-in-Chief Rifat Jawaid rightly expresses his opinion.
