HYD Blasts: Who can dare to arrest leaders supporting HuJI SIMI?

Do not link Hyderabad Macca Mosque blast with last year’s Malegaon blast: Patil. CM for CBI probe in suspected SIMI, HUJI blast: Media report. Correct, Mr Patil Mr. YSR!  But can we link the blast with the leaders and others who support HuJI and SIMI? Have you dare to file FIR against those? If not then why is drama of CBI enquiry? Collect votes to rule and give liberty for explosion. Are we communal to say like that?

 

Reports are reaching to Indian security agencies. These say the Harkat ul-Jihad al-Islami (HuJI), widely regarded as al-Qaeda’s operating arm in South Asia, is operating with impunity despite the US listing it as a terrorist group.

“HuJI has been consolidating its position in
Bangladesh where it boasts a membership of more than 25,000 activists, of whom at least 3,000 are hardcore. It is running over a dozen training camps in Bangladesh,” the official said. Intelligence agencies say its original mission might have been to set up Islamic rule in Bangladesh, but, over the years, its ambitions and geographical spread of its role have grown substantially.

 

Hyderabad a link with HuJI-JeM

The December 28, 2005 attack at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), in which a Delhi University mathematics professor was killed, was also attributed to the HuJI-JeM combine. Intelligence sources indicate that Shahid, a Hyderabad local based in Bangladesh and linked to HuJI-B and JeM, played a key role in the IISc attack.

 

Deoband a link with HuJI

Nothing links HuJI-B, at an organisational level, with India except for the fact that Mufti Abdul Hannan, HuJI-B’s Operations Commander, who been trained in Peshawar in Pakistan and fought in the ‘jihad’ in Afghanistan and was accidentally arrested in Dhaka on October 1, 2005, had, spent six years in the Deoband madrassa (seminary) in Uttar Pradesh (UP). What is, however, increasingly a worrisome affair is HuJI-B’s increasing involvement in terrorist attacks in Indian urban centres in recent years.

 

Harkat-ul-Jehad-i-Islami HUJI is a Bangladesh based  terrorist organization  which is a branch of Jaish E-Mohammad and belong to Deobandi school of thought which believe in violent Jihad. Deobandi school of thought has its headquarter in India. But this Darool Uloom Deoband madrassa never come under scrutiny of security agencies or media. Political parties always portrayed it as major patriotic organisation instead.Darool Uloom Deoband madrassa is paramount inspirational force behind global jihad which produced major terrorists including Massod Azher of Jaish, Mullah Umar of Taliban.

Who did start his roadshows from Deoband? Who can dare to file FIR against Rajkumar Rahul? Can there be an enquiry on the role of so called secular media?

 

Kolkata a link

HuJI-B’s direct involvement also came to light in the terrorist attack on January 22, 2002, at the American Center in Kolkata. An early morning attack by a group HuJI cadres left five policemen dead on the spot. Both Kolkata police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigated the incident, responsibility for which was claimed by two organisations, HuJI-B and the Asif Reza Commando Force (ARCF). In fact, the ARCF was an adjunct of the HUJI, formed and manned largely by Bangladeshi migrants in India and some experienced HUJI-B cadres in India who were trained at ISI- backed training camps in Pakistan. It was formed in the third week of December 2001 at a village, 15 kilometres from the Habibpur town, populated by illegal Bangladeshi migrants in the Malda District of West Bengal, following a meeting of middle-ranking HuJI-B leaders and Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) activists, who chalked out plans to float an affiliate of the outfit for local operations.

 

Harkat-ul-Jehad-i-Islami (HuJI) activist Mohammed Abdul Sahed alias Bilal, wanted for the blasts on the Samjhauta Express, has emerged as a key suspect in the bomb attack at the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad. A SIM card believed to have been used to trigger the explosive device at the mosque yesterday was purchased from Kolkata and its trail had led to a link with Bilal, sources in the team probing the attack said. They said that indications had emerged that Bilal could have masterminded the attack with some cadres of the banned SIMI and sleeper cells of Jaish-e-Mohammed. Both HuJI and Jaish follow the Deobandi sect of Islam.

Who oppwsed in NDA rule the ban on SIMI? If Sonia Gandhi, Ambika Soni and Sri Prakash jaiswl among them then who can dare to file FIR against them. Salman Khursheed is the chief of UP Congress. Few weeks back he pleaded in the Supreme Court for lifting the ban on SIMI.

 

SIMI HuJIa a link with Samjhauta and Varanasi blasts

SIMI enjoyed a close working relationship with the Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) in Bangladesh and its students’ wing, the Islami Chhatra Shibir (ICS). Over the years, while old linkages have continued, a new nexus has been established with the Harkat-ul-Jehad-al Islami Bangladesh (HuJI-B). Investigations into the July 28, 2005, Shramjeevi Express explosion near Jaunpur and the Varanasi serial blasts of March 7, 2006, indicated a role played by SIMI ansars (full-time cadres) and the HuJI-B’s cadres/agents. The prime conspirator of the Varanasi blasts, thirty-two year Waliullah, the Pesh Imam of Phulpur in Allahabad, who was arrested on April 5 near Gosainganj, on the outskirts of Lucknow, was a SIMI ansar who had earlier been arrested in 2001, along with three of his brothers, on charges of harbouring terrorists. Mohammad Zubair, a resident of Bahraich in Uttar Pradesh, who was involved in the attacks in Varanasi‘s Sankatmochan Temple and the Railway Station and was subsequently gunned down in the Handwara area in the Kashmir Valley, was also a SIMI cadre. Babu Bhai, the man behind the Shramjeevi Express blasts near Jaunpur, was, again, a SIMI ansar who received training at an ICS-run training camps in Ukhia, Bangladesh.

 

These three young men were products of a continuous recruitment drive by SIMI cadres for the HuJI-B in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur, Allahabad, Kanpur, Lucknow, Ambedkar Nagar, Aligarh, Azamgarh, Sonauli, Ferozabad, Hathras areas. Till the first quarter of the current year, SIMI old-timers like Mohammad Aamir, Mohammad Salman, Mohammad Rehan and Shariq Fahim, most of whom have spent time in Bangladesh, were in charge of such operations. SIMI cadres, according to sources, are also involved in safe transportation of explosives, as well as the creation of channels for funds and securing safe houses for HUJI-B cadres.

 

Waliullah’s interrogation threw further light on the October 29, 2005, explosions at New Delhi. He revealed that one of three Bangladeshis, involved in the Varanasi attack was in fact a part of the team that carried out the blasts in New Delhi as well, along with cadres from LeT.

Despite these and other incidents, security planners appear to be failing to take adequate note of the emerging threat from Bangladesh, and to frame strategies for its effective neutralization. Porous borders with Bangladesh and the increasing population of illegal migrants in India compound a problem that is yet to be adequately acknowledged within the realm of Indian politics. A continuous monitoring of the support network that the outfit thrives on will be key to HuJI’s neutralisation. In this, there is an urgent need to look beyond the electoral opportunism that has dominated the political orientation towards illegal Bangladeshis in India.

 

Do Congress and left not encurage Bnagladeshi infiltration? Who are providing them ration cards and enrolling their names in voter lists? Are they not solid voters of them to blast inHyderabad and other mosque as well as Sankatmochan temple of Varanasi?
