The solo survived Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev talked to his mom on phone. This phone call is however shared with media and mom still thinks his son is innocent and trapped. Dzhokhar’s mom Zubeidat Tsarnaev holds back tears to talk about his ‘intelligent’ son and screams in front of media; she repeatedly claims, “My son is innocent”.
The prime suspect of Boston bombing, Dzhokhar seemed not much gloomy or rather didn’t show emotions or sorrow as he talked to his mom after long. He seemed quite indifferent while talking and the speech was clear, loud. His voice didn’t show any type of regret or melancholy. It’s hard to think he is the “Boston bomber”, the self-radicalized terrorist. The very angel looking boy, ‘too good to be a terrorist’ according to his friends, bounced terror back in America, appeared to be calm and normal.
When his mom asks if he is in pains he denied the idea totally; in his words, “Of course not. I’m already eating and have been for long time. They are giving me rice and chicken now. Everything is fine”. Mom Zubeidat seemed really happy having heard her son after long gap. But quickly self-radicalized terrorist Dzhokhar adds, “Everything is good; please don’t say anything”, as if it is normal conversation between a son and his mom.
After the death of elder brother Tamerlen, Dzhokhar is the lone suspect in custody and will possibly face penalty. But they are mere facts for Zubeidat. She still doesn’t believe his sons were Boston bombers. She, however, always wears a ‘Hijab’ or head scurf, and sources say, her bigotry is the prime reason of her divorce to husband. And the dead bomber Tamerlan was seeming the one who introduced Dzhokhar in terrorism. The Tsarnaev family in Russia gets monetary supports from different funds and social sources, as people think they are mere victims.
Dzhokhar has a queue of supporters in Russia and they together opened a bank account on his name. Though it’s very bizarre to hear but it is true. Boston bomber has supporters too. He may have killed a cluster of people or paralyzed many for life during Boston marathon, kept his indifference. So, the white-hat boy, the Boston bomber, the most high profile terrorist of America (Okay for now!) talked to his mom keeping it cool.
