SURREY, B.C. – A talk show host in Surrey, B.C., says bullets were fired at her car and her opinions on gang violence might be to blame.

Ashiana Khan is CEO of Media Waves Communications, an internet radio station that streams in English, Punjabi and Hindi. She hosts a show that tackles local and national social and political issues.

On Saturday night she was driving home from a family dinner when she heard a loud gunshot, she said. It felt like someone had hurled a rock at her vehicle, but when she heard a second shot, she realized it wasn’t a rock.

“I thought I was dead,” she recalled. “When I got to my senses, I started feeling my body, touching my body, (to see) if I’m alive or dead.”

Khan was so stunned she barely remembers speeding away and pulling over, she said, and it was only once she reached the roadside that she realized she wasn’t hurt. She called 911 and waited inside her car until police arrived, too terrified to get out.

Surrey RCMP confirmed they’re investigating an apparent shooting on Saturday night and the vehicle had damage consistent with being struck by bullets.

All this attack by these gangbangers does is prove Ashiana Khan’s point about gang violence. They clearly didn’t like that her speaking publicly about criminal activity by gangs (including violence and intimidation) does much to expose their illegal activities to the light of day when, like the cockroaches they are, they prefer to operate under cover of darkness.

An INTERNET radio station.

And from The Best Radio Station In Vancouver, CKNW? Not a peep from brave Simi Sara as this is coming from her “community”, being a hyphenated Canadian and all. If she did say something, somehow she would blame Trump for it.

Kudos to Miss Khan. You catch flak when you are over the target.

Just sayin’

If I were this young lady, I would refrain from any further comment. Whatever was said, the shots fired at her were a warning. These gangsters are not worth losing your life over. Look what happened to Denver talk show host Alan Berg in 1984. Assassinated by a white supremacy group for his out-spoken views.

Kudos to Ashiana for drawing attention to an issue that has plagued her community for decades, and taken hundreds of lives.
What the hell was with the 5 gutless MLA’s who did not show for the rally?

Ive often wondered why Simi (I hate BCL and DJT) Sara has not given more editorial comment on the endless gang/gun/violence and mayhem created by INDO Canadians in Surrey. You would think she might have an opinion about the culture that allows parents to not notice their young sons driving expensive cars and keeping odd hours.
But if Christie Clark drove through a red light she could wail for days.

13….perhaps it’s because Ashiana is brave and committed to being a serious voice in helping her community deal seriously with the gang issue, and Simi just wants to hear her own voice..
