The story of Ramla Akhtar & her toxic partner, Olga Leonidovna Ozerova (Russian Extreme Travels), is like, unfortunately, many other ones. This is the story of repeated mistakes and wasted talents which led to a life lost far away from all legitimate expectations. Though very ordinary, it became something unexpectantly bigger, involving state authorities of three countries (France, Pakistan, Russia), a remote mountain community and its foreign visitors, a massive use of social media and an amazing amount of disinformation. Thanks for a fiction appetence and gifted with stage skills, this author decided to enter into spheres unknown from her. There is a lot to learn from this fiasco. We will, however, focus on four teachings for Ramla, aka Rmala Aalam and Olga Leonidovna Ozerova, aka Olga Sim, from Russian Extreme Travels.
- First lesson: don’t mess with French politics
- Second lesson: avoid geopolitical issues
- Third lesson: stop outraging Muslim people with your hopeless French far-right flirt
- Fourth lesson: don’t forget France is a State of Law
This paper would be better understood after reading its previous articles:
– How a self-called anti white-supremacist, anti-colonialist and Metoo Pakistani activist unveils her mask in favor of French neo-fascist far-right?
– What Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam expects from far-right support & how is it connected with geopolitics?
First lesson: don’t mess with French politics
You have never been in Europe. You don’t know France. Wikipedia says: “French is estimated to have about 76 million native speakers and about 235 million daily, fluent speakers and another 77 to 110 million secondary speakers who speak it as a second language to varying degrees of proficiency, mainly in Africa“. USA today reports: “it becomes the world’s most commonly spoken language by the year 2050, according to a study by Natixis, an investment bank. The language beloved by Parisian poets, Russian aristocrats and international diplomats is set to reclaim its title.” Belonging to the Breton minority whose native language is dying, I take no pride of this situation. But, as a matter of fact, the biggest part of what concerns France and French people is in French language. And, Ramla Akhtar, you don’t speak this language. It is not like in India, in Pakistan or in many other countries where English is largely used.
French politics is complicated. It is just not understandable for any non-French speaking person. You pretend having an idea about my writings. I just use English unfrequently. Most of my papers are in French. How can you consider having any comprehension about my politic opinions while ignoring all this material, while you false quote my English texts and post oriented assumptions about my French articles? Then, you just report what goes thru your instable mind. One day I am a fascist. Another day I am a leftist. One day I am a coward, a clown in panic. The same day, I am a very dangerous person, who terrorizes you, threatening you to death. None of this makes sens.
You don’t know what is the complex French administration. You targeted the Nantes mayor for your calumnious denunciations, but you also tried the same attempt with Georges Pennel a far-right politician that nobody knows and who is not even elected by the administrative region Nantes belongs to. It does not work.
Let’s go to normal French people. You are external to Descartes’s way of thinking. You don’t collect facts. You don’t analysis anything. You cook fictions. You use insults and you spread fake news. It is blatant for all of those to whom I presented your case (Nantes Municipality, High Court, governmental agency, lawyers, Muslims). They consider your frenetic unsupported statements are neither credible nor acceptable. Your way is not the way it works in Europe. May be, you remember some of your British education? In the UK it is called “Habeas Corpus”. In France, it is “présomption d’innocence”. Law of Lynch does not work, here. You don’t get innocents condemned just because you excite a crowd or because you promise death to judges. I will add that French justice is not a parody. It cannot be instrumented via anonymous tweets. This is a formal and independent process. Moreover, calumnious denunciations, in this country, are punished (article 226-10 of the Criminal Code).
You should know, very few French people have my positive views on Pakistan. They are not ready to follow your attacks against a French Christian person. When I was in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, the French ambassador told me: “I beg you. Please, don’t go to Afghanistan, don’t go to Pakistan. If you have a problem, we will not be able to get you back.” I went to both countries. But look at the last map of French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Only Islamabad can be accessed under “heightened vigilance”. All other regions are “not recommended, (unless there is an imperative reason)” or are “formally not recommended.”
Hunza is pertinently showed as a tourist icon. It is true for some places like Pamir Serai guest-houses. Some believe it is the same situation everywhere in the country. In English you can, may be, read: “Pakistan makes it to first place on ‘best holiday destinations for 2020”. In France, Pakistan is considered as number 11, among the 20 most dangerous countries of the world. I don’t fully agree. I faced dangers in other countries. But, the fact is there is a strong suspiciousness. You have exactly the words for ringing the alarm of distrust, in France. I will not enter into too many details on how the kind of “justice” you promote is considered by French people. I will just remind that Asia Bibi was awarded Paris honorary citizenship. This a very special distinction for Human Rights. She met on February 28, 2020, with President Emmanuel Macron for being granted political asylum. See:“Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi receives invite to live in France“.
You don’t know France. You don’t understand this country. For your personal comfort, avoid looking like a pitiful pug barking and trying to run far behind events or situations. You have absolutely no chance for being taken seriously by any normal French person. You might say: “OK, but far-right will help me!” We will look at it later.
Second lesson: avoid geopolitical issues
Your friend, Olga Leonidovna Ozerova, from Saratov, suggested you to object with separatism accusations while I was challenging the way you wanted to involve male and female foreign visitors in your pornographic tale about Chapursan valley. See: “Report of a French traveler about the Chapursan Valley, Pakistan“. You did not take the full measure on how it was inappropriate.
“La grenouille qui veut se faire plus grosse que le boeuf” – Jean de la Fontaine (1621 – 1695)
First of all, your fight for depriving a simple mountain family from its tourist revenue has nothing to do with relations between sovereign states. It is a sordid revenge from a middle aged woman against the father of her child, nothing more. Let’s keep it at its proper level. It was already reckless involving, here, strangers as alleged victims or tormentors, expecting none of them would talk. It resulted into your defamation scheme made a public local case against you. It led to revelations about your child abuse and neglect.
Second, your informant did not tell you that “meddling for provoking separatism” is a recurring sentence from the Kremlin in its anti-Western rhetoric. It is a kind of reflex for the official propaganda and also for those unable to think politically on an independent way, as it is, unfortunately, the case for many Russian people. As I heard numerous times in Russia: “We don’t talk about politics. It is the job of specialists, professional people”. Please read the Nobel Prize, Svetlana Alexievich: “Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets”. “Foreign meddling” spontaneously came out of your friend’s mouth without further reflexion. It is used, actually, to counter questions about Human Rights violations, altough Russia (as FURSS) signed the Helsinki accords in 1975: “Respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the freedom of thought, conscience, religion or belief”. In the siloviki empire, separatism is not used for what it really means, the way normal citizens should understand it. You should learn that, indeed, Kremlim was and is at the command of separatist wars in Transnistria (Moldavia), South Ossetia (Georgia), Abkhazia (Georgia), Crimea (Ukraine), Donbass (Ukraine). Kremlin tries to fuel and/or to instrument separatism in all European countries: Baltic states, Zakarpattia (Ukraine), Scotland (UK), Catalonia (Spain), Brittany (France), Corsica (France) without mentioning the promotion of different exits from UE. The tragic irony for a country being the first world actor for separatism is that, under Putin’s regime, even non-violent separatism is considered as a crime and punished under terrorism charges. Your allegations of separatism promotion about me against Russia (information you pretend having “found” in texts you are not able to read) or against Pakistan (where you tried to place it) are irrelevant.
Third, the same Ms Ozerova, wrote that “Russia Beyond“ where I published articles in 2018 & 2019 was an anti-Russian website. I gave her all information to prove it was a Russian state media belonging to RT (Russia Today). She was resistent to any evidence. You used this accusation too. Wikipedia: Russia Beyond is a multilingual publication, one of the brands of “TV-Novosti”, an “autonomous non-profit organization”, funded by the Russian government, offering news, comment, opinion and analysis on culture, politics, business, science and public life in Russia. Previously, it has also covered Russian and international politics and has been criticised for being a Russian propaganda outlet.” “Russian propaganda” became the “anti-Russian propaganda” you endless repeat, including to Russian Government. Even from the creepiest trolls, I never read something like that. Amateurism, dilettanteism, madness, deliberate lie, who knows? How could someone believe you?
Fourth, you are talking about the Mistral deal which was one of the major internal and external issues for France, for two years. It was a complicated subject for many people who really worked on it. It was a question of geopolitics, of employment, of credibility for future exportations, of foreign influences, of military alliances, of peace or war responsibility, of potential large financial penalties and of massive propaganda. Many Russian and French specialists got lost. How, can you pretend having one single world to say about it? It is none of your business, sure. So what? Freedom of speech. But it was absolutely none of your interests, skills or knowledge. The farce was guaranteed. But you went on. You were so rushing for calumnies and false news cooking, that you did n’t even read properly the only English document you looked at, the one you claimed to have disocovered thanks to Google. You consider two Mistral invasion vessels are one submarine… How could you believe a nuclear power like Russia would need to buy submarines? Russia is a submarine exporter, not an importer. We sale submarines to Pakistan and Australia, not to Kremlin. You are in such a confusion. Then, how could you have any idea about how I complied with my moral duty in this affair? I don’t serve Trump or Putin. Like it or not, I serve the interest of my country, in accordance with its values and its democratic principles.
Ramla Akhtar, You should better leave geopolitics to experts.

Third lesson: stop outraging Muslim people with your hopeless far-right flirt
For a presentation of Ramla Akhtar connection with French far-right, see: “How a self-called anti white-supremacist, anti-colonialist and Metoo Pakistani activist unveils her mask in favor of French neo-fascist far-right?“
Behind a sort of modern so-called activism, your core speech is based on hatred, revenge, anti-white & anti-European racism, conspiracy theories and extremism. By many aspects you are consistent with the expression of most radical wings of French far-right. Nevertheless, if they have same methods than yours, these fanatics just hold completely different targets. They hate color people, Muslims and, particularly, Pakistani people. I published on Agoravox articles in French about Pakistan: first article, second article, third article, fourth article. You should read, in the below exhibit, a couple of far-right troll comments I countered under these papers. I had to ask the moderators to remove the worst of them. I had to block some contributors because their racism against Pakistanis was just unbereable and illegal. For many reasons, you are the kind of person far-right does not only distrust but positively abhor.
Now, on a Pakistani and Muslim point of view, your indecent flirt with far-right is a shame. Let’s read some quotes from Al Jazeera “France opens probe into racist violence by far-right activists”:
“Al Jazeera investigation exposed Generation Identity (GI) activists carrying out a racist attack on a teenage girl and admitting to a series of other assaults on Muslims and Arabs…”
“The assailant, identified as Remi Falize, in a secretly filmed conversation, afterwards said: “Girl, or no girl, I couldn’t give a f***. They are just Arabs…””
“The 30-year-old supermarket worker was later caught on camera saying that if he was diagnosed with a terminal illness, he would go to Lille’s Wazemmes market and “sow carnage” against Muslims…”
“Verhassel was also secretly filmed encouraging members of the Citadelle (a far-right headquarters) to violence…”
“Al Jazeera’s investigation also revealed close ties between GI and Marine Le Pen’s National Front (renamed, Rassemblement National), one of France’s largest political parties…”
Fourth lesson: don’t forget France is a State of Law
No professional politician would like to be sentenced for defamation (law of July 29, 1881) especially while cooking false accusations of paedophilia. Myriam Badaoui, having a personality very similar to yours, was a tragic experience. With the testimonies about your child abuses, Ramla Akhtar, your unsupported assumptions about the whole community of a valley, would be extremely seriously questioned.
Nobody, in France, would stand a new Myriam Badoui, even (or even more?) from Pakistan.
The Outreau trial was a 2004 criminal trial in northern France on various counts of sexual abuse against children. The trial and the appeal trial revealed that the main witness for the prosecution (Myriam Badoui), convicted for the abuse, had lied about the involvement of other suspects, who were in fact innocent. Several innocent suspects had nevertheless spent years jailed on remand and one died while in prison.
The trials resulted in a national outrage in France, with journalists, politicians and the public opinion questioning how such a miscarriage of justice could happen, with innocent men and women being held for years in jail on unfounded suspicions. In January 2006, a parliamentary inquiry was created, with President Jacques Chirac calling the affair a “judicial disaster”.
The incredible success of the very recent Yoann Barbereau’s book, “In the jails of Siberia”, opened the last closed eyes. False allegations of pedophilia would immediately backfire for any responsible French person.
The hand of justice, until now, did not catch a Pakistani cybercriminal. Such a criminal, in France, would be in troubles. That’s what happened to Jean-Claude Blanchard, the Front National politician of St Nazaire, who organized a far-right counter demonstration against one of ours. Later, he has been convicted of defamation against a Muslim association. He is a malevolent fish but a small fish. This is the story of a “local figure” who was stupid enough to play a troll game. Burnt once, he will not do it twice. Gilles Pennelle and Marine le Pen have too high expectations for compromising themselves in your conspiracy tale.
I have no doubt any contact with you, even from those you believe in, will be, very quick, seen has corona virus in France. Nobody would like to enter into your fanatic game.
Anyway, it will be your decision to tarnish the reputation of your country and to counter the efforts of your compatriots for enjoying the international recognition level they legitimately expect. You will have to answer to them.
Some racist comments received under Bernard Grua articles about Pakistan on Agoravox
- “I don’t go to places where women are forbidden to wear skirts. And then that’s all.” https://www.agoravox.fr/commentaire5316680
- “Me what I like with the Afghan or Pakistani colonialists is their respect for the native: “All I want is justice, because the men who raped me walk around in freedom”. https: //www.breizh-info.com/2018/10/02/103161/telford-viol-extra-europeens (far-right web magazine). If these savages tease bobos (bourgeois-bohemes) in search of exoticism or the racist feminists, that they can continue in all impunity is only the price to pay to satisfy the morbid inclinations of the well-thought-out gauchiasserie … https://www.agoravox.fr/commentaire5317396
- “Pakistan !? Could it be this charming country that wanted to hang a Christian who had had the immense guilt of drinking from a well reserved for Muslims?”
- “Islam as a religion is the primary producer of violence and fanaticism. It is enough to read the Koran including Fatiha which is the culture of hatred, according to verse 7 of the first sura, to have the heart clear. One cannot erase from memory, the hatred instilled, for years, through the five daily prayers so easily”. https://www.agoravox.fr/commentaire5568929
- “The person we talk about (Ramla Akhtar) is a miror of what is done in this Muslim world almost everywhere. Their concerns are not the truth of the facts, no, it does not matter, nor are they substantiated arguments, what interests them is to modify the facts, to remake old stories in adapting them to their religious ideology, even the story that unfolds before your eyes is changed ….” https://www.agoravox.fr/commentaire5570180
