NOIDA, India, June 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – An Indian scholar and veteran political commentator has stated that critics of the “bunkum” natural origins theory of COVID-19 have been prevented from promoting the lab leak theory, due to the threat of “Doctor Fauci and his gang” destroying their careers.
Professor Madhav Das Nalapat, the Director of Geopolitics and International Relations and UNESCO Peace Chair at Manipal University in India, made the comments earlier this month on one of India’s English-language news channels, NewsX.
Nalapat is also the former Coordinating Editor of widely circulated English speaking paper The Times of India.
During the June 3 NewsX discussion on Dr. Anthony Fauci and the origins of COVID-19, Nalapat raised strong concerns about the trustworthiness of the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), in light of his recently published emails. The emails have notably revealed that Fauci was informed about the possibility of COVID having originated in a laboratory, yet despite evidence presented to him, Fauci has consistently downplayed the so-called lab leak theory.
Nalapat pointed to Fauci’s denial of the lab leak theory and his funding of the gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The professor also attacked the NIAID director, claiming that his influence was so pervasive that anyone who attempted to disagree with his denial of the lab leak theory was silenced.
“What is the most disgusting in this whole thing, is the cover-up,” Nalapat said.
PETITION UPDATE (5/12/2021) -
It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in the NIH's funding of so-called "gain-of-function" research may be catching up with him.
In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox's Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.
Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.
But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci's department in the NIH, "collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it."
And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.
So, the evidence - both in testimony and in the court of public opinion - continues to mount.
Could we ask you to consider SIGNING and SHARING this important petition, which calls for Dr. Fauci to be fired and investigated for any role he played in promoting and funding the dangerous research which may have cost the world dearly in lives and jobs lost.
When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than "Mr. Science" himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci's NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.
Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.
Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.
However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition if you agree that Dr. Anthony Fauci should instead be immediately fired and investigated for his role in causing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.
As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.
Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.
And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.
Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to demand that Dr. Fauci be fired immediately and investigated fully for his role in the creation of Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic.
P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.
P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden's return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.

“Any scientist who spoke up was strictly warned that ‘Look here, you are going to have your career destroyed’.”
Nalapat did not reference any specific examples to support his claim but mentioned contacts, in both the U.S. and Japan, who had informed him of the news.
“Friends in the United States and Japan extensively briefed me that this theory [of the natural origin of COVID-19] is complete bunkum,” he stated.
“Then I asked them, ‘What’s wrong with you guys? Why are you silent?’ But they said, ‘If we speak out, Dr Fauci and his gang will destroy us, will destroy our reputations, will destroy our careers. We do not dare to speak out’.”
Nalapat’s comments were followed by a tweet he posted some days later, in which he indirectly attacked Fauci once again: “As yet those who participated in such suicidal ‘gain of function’ experiments have escaped even censure much less punishment.”
The professor is not alone in making such claims. Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin also warned that Fauci was too untrustworthy to give statements on the origins of COVID-19 and described the culture of censorship which surrounded any potential opposition to him.
Speaking on the Megyn Kelly podcast, Rogin called the NIAID director the “Godfather of gain-of-function research as we know it.” He also stated that he had received numerous testimonies from scientists who had been prohibited from speaking against Fauci and discussing gain-of-function research.
“I often talk to scientists who say the same thing, who say, ‘Listen, we really want to speak out about this, but we can’t do it’,” Rogin revealed.
“‘Why can’t we do it? Well, we get all of our funding from NIH, or NIAID […] which is run by Dr. Fauci for years and years and years.’ So we can’t say anything like, ‘Oh, gain-of-function research might be dangerous, or it might have come from a lab, because we’re going to lose our careers, we’re going to lose our funding, we’re not going to be able to do the work’.”
Robert Redfield, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from 2018 through 2021, publicly claimed that he had received death threats after expressing his opinion that COVID-19 had escaped from the Wuhan lab. Redfield did not pursue this by accusing China of having deliberately related the virus, ruling out any accusation of “intentionality.”
But in comments made to Vanity Fair, Redfield said that he had received death threats from fellow members of the scientific community in response for his televised comments. “I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis. I expected it from politicians. I didn’t expect it from science,” Redfield said.
