Bangalore blasts: Cops look out for Al Ummah man

Cops look out for Al Ummah man
26 July, 2008, By Bala Chauhan


July 26 : A key functionary of the banned outfit Al Umma, from Bengaluru is hotly being pursued by the police for his alleged involvement in the serial blasts on Friday. He was arrested earlier for his alleged involvement in the February 1998 serial blasts in Coimbatore in which 58 people lost their lives, and was released recently.

Al Umma is a Tamil Nadu based organisation, which was banned. It was in the news for involvement in the Coimbatore blasts on the eve of BJP leader LK Advani’s election rally.

In August 2007, the Special Court, Coimbatore had convicted Al-Umma founder S.A. Basha and 152 others found guilty in the blasts.

The organisation had become active in Tamil Nadu after the Babri Masjid demolition on December 6, 1992. They had made improvised explosive devices using gelatin sticks for the blasts. These were stolen from the quarries in the region and fabricated by the members of the organization.

The serial blasts in Bengaluru could allegedly be a joint operation of Al-Umma and the Students Islamic Movement of India, said official sources.

“Members of both the organizations are present in the city and the state. They could have jointly triggered the blasts, to protest against the newly installed BJP government. The perfect synchronization of the serial blasts is reminiscent of the Coimbatore blasts. Al Umma had also earlier struck in the city a couple of years ago, when three of its members were killed in a police encounter in Sanjaynagar,” said the officer.

What the Islamic Invaders Did to India: Rizwan Salim On The Anniversary Of The Babri Masjid Demolition In The Context Of Indian History

Posted by jagoindia on July 29, 2008

What the Islamic Invaders Did to India
by Rizwan Salim, 12 Nov, 2007

Rizwan Salim is a reviewer of New York Tribune, Capitol Hill reporter, assistant editor of American Sentinel.

On the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition (December 6, 1992), it is important for Hindus (and Muslims) to understand the importance of the event in the context of Hindustan’s history, past and recent, present and the future.

Savages at a very low level of civilisation and no culture worth the name, from Arabia and west Asia, began entering India from the early century onwards. Islamic invaders demolished countless Hindu temples, shattered uncountable sculpture and idols, plundered innumerable palaces and forts of Hindu kings, killed vast numbers of Hindu men and carried off Hindu women. This story, the educated-and a lot of even the illiterate Indians-know very well. History books tell it in remarkable detail. But many Indians do not seem to recognise that the alien Muslim marauders destroyed the historical evolution of the earth’s most mentally advanced civilisation, the most richly imaginative culture, and the most vigorously creative society.

It is clear that India at the time when Muslim invaders turned towards it (8 to 11th century) was the earth’s richest region for its wealth in precious and semi-precious stones, gold and silver, religion and culture, and its fine arts and letters. Tenth century Hindustan was also too far advanced than its contemporaries in the East and the West for its achievements in the realms of speculative philosophy and scientific theorising, mathematics and knowledge of nature’s workings. Hindus of the early medieval period were unquestionably superior in more things than the Chinese, the Persians (including the Sassanians), the Romans and the Byzantines of the immediate proceeding centuries. The followers of Siva and Vishnu on this subcontinent had created for themselves a society more mentally evolved-joyous and prosperous too-than had been realised by the Jews, Christians, and Muslim monotheists of the time. Medieval India, until the Islamic invaders destroyed it, was history’s most richly imaginative culture and one of the five most advanced civilisations of all times.

Look at the Hindu art that Muslim iconoclasts severely damaged or destroyed. Ancient Hindu sculpture is vigorous and sensual in the highest degree-more fascinating than human figural art created anywhere else on earth. (Only statues created by classical Greek artists are in the same class as Hindu temple sculpture). Ancient Hindu temple architecture is the most awe-inspiring, ornate and spell-binding architectural style found anywhere in the world. (The Gothic art of cathedrals in France is the only other religious architecture that is comparable with the intricate architecture of Hindu temples). No artist of any historical civilisation have ever revealed the same genius as ancient Hindustan’s artists and artisans.

Their minds filled with venom against the idol-worshippers of Hindustan, the Muslims destroyed a large number of ancient Hindu temples. This is a historical fact, mentioned by Muslim chroniclers and others of the time. A number of temples were merely damaged and remained standing. But a large number-not hundreds but many thousands-of the ancient temples were broken into shreds of cracked stone. In the ancient cities of Varanasi and Mathura, Ujjain and Maheshwar, Jwalamukhi and Dwarka, not one temple survives whole and intact from the ancient times.

The wrecking of Hindu temples went on from the early years of the 8th century to well past 1700 AD a period of almost 1000 years. Every Muslim ruler in Delhi (or Governor of Provinces) spent most of his time warring against Hindu kings in the north and the south, the east and the west, and almost every Muslim Sultan and his army commanders indulged in largescale destructions of Hindu temples and idols. They also slaughtered a lot of Hindus. It is easy to conclude that virtually every Hindu temple built in the ancient times is a perfect work of art. The evidence of the ferocity with which the Muslim invaders must have struck at the sculptures of gods and goddesses, demons and apsaras, kings and queens, dancers and musicians is frightful. At so many ancient temples of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, for example, shattered portions of stone images still lie scattered in the temple courtyards. Considering the fury used on the idols and sculptures, the stone-breaking axe must have been applied to thousands upon thousands of images of hypnotic beauty.

Giving proof of the resentment that men belonging to an inferior civilisation feel upon encountering a superior civilisation of individuals with a more refined culture, Islamic invaders from Arabia and western Asia broke and burned everything beautiful they came across in Hindustan. So morally degenerate were the Muslim Sultans that, rather than attract Hindu “infidels” to Islam through force of personal example and exhortation, they just built a number of mosques at the sites of torn down temples-and foolishly pretended they had triumphed over the minds and culture of the Hindus. I have seen stones and columns of Hindu temples incorportated into the architecture of several mosques, including the Jama Masjid and Ahmed Shah Masjid in Ahmedabad; the mosque in the Uparkot fort of Junagadh (Gujarat) and in Vidisha (near Bhopal); the Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra right next to the famous dargah in Ajmer-and the currently controversial Bhojshala “mosque” in Dhar (near Indore). Hindu culture was at its imaginative best and vigorously creative when the severely-allergic-to-images Muslims entered Hindustan. Islamic invaders did not just destroy countless temples and constructions but also suppressed cultural and religious practices; damaged the pristine vigour of Hindu religion, prevented the intensification of Hindu culture, debilitating it permanently, stopped the development of Hindu arts ended the creative impulse in all realms of thought and action, damaged the people’s cultural pride, disrupted the transmission of values and wisdom, cultural practices and tradition from one generation to the next; destroyed the proper historical evolution of Hindu kingdoms and society, affected severely the acquisition of knowledge, research and reflection and violated the moral basis of Hindu society. The Hindus suffered immense psychic damage. The Muslims also plundered the wealth of the Hindu kingdoms, impoverished the Hindu populace, and destroyed the prosperity of Hindustan.

Gaze in wonder at the Kailas Mandir in the Ellora caves and remember that it is carved out of a solid stone hill, an effort that (inscriptions say) took nearly 200 years. This is art as devotion. The temple built by the Rashtrakuta kings (who also built the colossal sculpture in the Elenhanta caves off Mumbai harbour) gives proof of the ancient Hindus’ religious fervor.

But the Kailas temple also indicated a will power, a creative imagination, and an intellect eager to take on the greatest of artistic challenges.

The descendants of those who built the magnificent temples of Bhojpur and Thanjavur, Konark and Kailas, invented mathematics and brain surgery, created mindbody disciplines (yoga) of astonishing power, and built mighty empires would almost certainly have attained technological superiority over Europe.

It is not just for “political reasons” that Hindus want to build grand temples at the sites of the (wrecked) Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, the Gyanvapi mosque in Varanasi, and the Mathura idgah. The efforts of religion-intoxicated and politically active Hindus to rebuild the Ram Mandir, the Kashi Vishwanath Mandir, and the Krishna Mandir are just three episodes m a one-thousand year long Hindu struggle to reclaim their culture and religion from alien invaders.

The demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on 6 December 1992 was just one episode in the millennial struggle of the Hindus to repossess their religion-centered culture and nation. Meanwhile, hundreds of ancient Hindu temples forsaken all over Hindustan await the reawakening of Hindu cultural pride to be repaired or rebuilt and restored to their original, ancient glory.

Muslims claim site for proposed Uttar Pradesh varsity

Muslims claim site for proposed Uttar Pradesh varsity
Tue, Jul 29 10:38 AM

Lucknow, July 29 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Maywati’s attempts to build a university here for the disabled has run into rough weather with Shia Muslims claiming the land demarcated for the project belongs to a historical mosque.

According to managers of the Shahadara Mosque, about 19 of the 74 acres acquired by the government for building the university in the name of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) national general secretary Satish Mishra’s mother Shakuntala Mishra belongs to the shrine.

Located on Mohan Road on the outskirts of Lucknow, the picturesque Shahadara Mosque was built between 1820 and 1827 by Mallika Kishwar Jahan, wife of the first nawab of Awadh, Ghaziuddin Haider Shah.

Baqar Mehndi, the mutawalli (caretaker) of the mosque for the last 40 years, says the land belongs to Shia Muslims and is registered under the Uttar Pradesh Muslim Waqf Act.

‘If the land is not returned to the Muslims, we will launch a countrywide agitation led by clerics and Muslim organizations against the BSP government,’ Mehndi told IANS.

Shia Muslim leaders have organised themselves under the Shahadara Masjid Bachao Sangharsh Samiti to fight for the cause.

On its part, the government has constituted a three-member committee headed by Additional District Magistrate R.K. Pandey to look into the claims of the mosque authorities.

‘The committee has no meaning since all records are available to clearly show the land belongs to the mosque,’ said Mehndi.

The district administration had assured Muslims in the area that the disputed portion of the plot would not be used till the committee submits its report. However, construction work has already begun on the site.

Several bulldozers have been pressed into service to uproot trees and level the land under police vigil. Workers are raising a boundary wall around the plot.

Mayawati had announced the setting up of the university on Feb 3 this year by ordering the transfer of 74 acres to the Shakuntala Mishra Sewa Sansthan free of cost.

The chief minister also gifted a corpus of Rs.5.1 million to the trust. Later, in the wake of controversy over the government giving away free land to allegedly oblige Mishra, Mayawati changed her decision June 7 and said the government would itself implement the project.

BJP’s Ashok Khajuria asks Kashmiri Muslims to leave Jammu immediately

Posted by jagoindia on July 29, 2008

Well said, Ashok Khajuria. Islam is a cruel, oppressive and violent religion. There should be no place in India for those who follow such a savage belief system. In India our ethos based on peace, harmony, pluralism, democracy and respect for all all beliefs.

Tension over land row heightens, Kashmiris asked to leave Jammu
India’s News.Net
Thursday 24th July, 2008 (IANS)

Tension gripped the curfew-bound Jammu city after some Hindu leaders asked Kashmiri Muslims to ‘pack up’ from here and angry crowds defying curfew staged protest marches Thursday, a day after a man allegedly committed suicide here against the cancellation of land allotted to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB).

Undeterred by the curfew and agitated over the government’s alleged failure to restore land to the shrine board, people in several parts of this winter capital city and its suburbs held protest demonstrations and blocked the Jammu-Pathankote and Jammu-Srinagar national highways.

The protesters were raising slogans against Governor N.N. Vohra and National Conference president Omar Abdullah, whose effigies were burnt at various places.

Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) state unit president Ashok Khajuria in a news conference asked Kashmiri Muslims to leave Jammu immediately.

‘Omar Abdullah should not visit Jammu, and all Kashmiris should leave the region at the earliest. They have no right to be here,’ Khajuria said.

Many areas in Jammu region observed a complete shutdown in response to the general shutdown call given by Amarnath Yatra Samgarash Samiti (AYSS).

‘The protests will continue,’ Leela Karan, convenor of the AYSS, told reporters here.

Karan said the situation could take any turn, and it would be better for the Kashmiris who have settled in Jammu to ‘pack up from here’. ‘They (Kashmiris) have no business to be here when their leaders are rigid in conceding land for the (Amarnath) pilgrimage and pilgrims’ facilities.’

Life in many towns of the Hindu-dominated Jammu region came to a halt with all shops, business establishments and educational institutions closed. The roads were deserted.

Divisional Commissioner (Jammu) Sudhanshu Pandey told IANS: ‘The indefinite curfew was imposed at dawn as a precautionary measure.’

The lull that had descended in Jammu after a 10-day-long spell of shutdowns and curfews was broken Wednesday when Kuldip Kumar Dogra allegedly committed suicide to protest the government’s ‘inaction’ on the land row.

Dogra, in his late 20s, appeared at Parade Ground, where activists of the AYSS were on a hunger strike Wednesday. He made an emotional speech to the gathering, saying the revocation of the land transfer order to the shrine board had driven him to desperation. He said he was ‘sacrificing my ife for the cause’, eyewitnesses told reporters.

Dogra, who had allegedly consumed poison before making the speech, fell unconscious. He was taken to a hospital where the doctors declared him dead, the police said. His body was cremated at his native village of Bishnah region Thursday.

The police said a suicide note was found in Dogra’s pocket. It said he was upset about Omar Abdullah’s remarks in parliament Tuesday that Kashmiris would die but never give up their forest land.

Karan said the government should register a case against the National Conference president for his ‘communal and provocative utterances’.

The curfew continued in Jammu city but it was repeatedly defied by protesters, who raised anti-government slogans and demanded Governor Vohra’s recall from the state.

The AYSS is demanding the allocation of nearly 40 hectares of forest land to the Amarnath shrine board. The land was first diverted to the shrine board May 26 for setting up temporary prefabricated structures for pilgrims travelling to the cave shrine of Hindu god Shiva in south Kashmir.

The issue triggered massive protests in the Kashmir Valley. Protesters in the Muslim-majority region alleged that the plot would be used to settle outsiders and change the demographic character of Kashmir.

The government rescinded the order July 1. That silenced the street protests in the Kashmir Valley but ignited a counter agitation in Jammu, where people are still demanding allotment of the plot to the shrine board.

Did movie “Contract” inspire Ahmedabad blasts

Posted by jagoindia on July 29, 2008

Movie inspired blast plot?

Mon, Jul 28 01:10 AM

The perpetrators of the Saturday blasts that have claimed 46 lives so far seem to have been distinctly influenced by the plot of the Bollywood film Contract – which released 10 days ago – police sources told HT. In the film, the main villain, Sultan, outlines his plan of first setting off low-intensity explosions in crowded places, and then, when the injured throng the nearest hospital, triggering a much bigger blast at the hospital itself. In Ahmedabad too, there were 19 relatively less lethal blasts at first, which saw the injured being rushed to hospitals.

These were followed by two deadly high-intensity explosions at two hospitals – the Civil Hospital and the LG Hospital – that killed 27 people. “The modus operandi was unique,” Ashish Bhatia, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) told HT. Forensic and counter-terrorism experts of the Gujarat police were engaged in investigations on Sunday, even as the blasts saw a high alert being sounded in several states across the country.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh convened an urgent review meeting to analyse the information trickling in. The meeting agreed upon a list of steps that had to be taken immediately to cope with the growing terror threat, home ministry sources said.

Sources said the central intelligence agencies expressed the view that the so-called ‘Indian Mujahideen’, the group which by email claimed responsibility for the blasts, could well be a smokescreen to conceal the hand of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI). Prime Minister Singh and Home Minister Shivraj Patil will both be visiting Ahmedabad on Monday.

Congress chief Sonia Gandhi may accompany them. Chief Minister Narendra Modi held a cabinet meeting in the morning to take stock, while BJP president L.K. Advani, who holds the neigbouring Lok Sabha seat of Gandhinagar, visited the injured in one of the hospitals.

“There should be a national consensus of tackling terrorism,” he told newsmen, while harping once more on the need to revive Prevention of Terrorism Act, which the UPA government had repealed. More bombs, which had failed to explode, were found in both Ahmedabad and Surat on Sunday.

A sweeper found one in a garbage bin in Ahmedabad’s Amraiwadi area. It was defused by the bomb squad.

In Surat, a live bomb was discovered near Nupur Hospital and two explosives-laden cars were found abandoned in Poonagam and Hirabaug areas. Police investigating the blasts have also found close similarities with the Jaipur blasts in May, last year’s blasts in Hyderabad and the blast at the Sankatmochan Temple in Varanasi.

In all these cases, the explosives were assembled on a C-shaped casing and covered by a layer of ammonium nitrate and petroleum jelly. The bombs were stuffed with sharpnels like ball bearings and bolts, and topped with gelatine.

The explosions were triggered using an analog timer device attached to a nine-volt battery. The entire apparatus was then put in a wooden box and wrapped with plastic or paper and planted inside a plastic bag, which was hung from a bicycle.

Police are comparing post-blast videos of Jaipur blasts and the serial blasts here to establish further links.

Fake currency funding Islamic terror?

Fake currency funding terror?
29 Jul 2008, Pradeep Thakur & Vishwa Mohan,TNN

NEW DELHI: Linkages between terror outfits executing bomb blasts across the country and jihadi cells that have been circulating fake Indian currency notes (FICN) may not be a secret but its extent has caused concern among the security agencies.

Seizures of huge amount of FICN worth crores of rupees from agents working closely with the perpetrators of the twin blasts in Hyderabad had brought the issue to the centrestage when the home ministry took up this issue with the external affairs and finance ministries recently.

Officials in the meeting — chaired by home secretary Madhukar Gupta — elaborated in detail as to how the fake currency was being pumped into India through the porous Bangladesh and Nepal borders for funding terror modules. The meeting followed concern raised by security agencies that they had come across several instances where accused held with FICN had been found linked to ISI handlers from across the borders, sources said.

The home ministry spokesperson said detailed discussions were held with a view to coordinating the effort of all agencies to tackle various issues linked to this problem (menace of FICN) effectively and “to streamline the various processes related to detection, seizure, reporting, analysis, sharing of information, monitoring and investigation of cases”.

Even during the investigation of past terror attacks, the cops had picked up suspects held for FICN seizure while investigating their alleged role in the blasts. In last year’s blast at Gokul Chat Bhandar in Hyderabad, two persons injured and admitted to hospital were found to be those who were wanted in connection with the seizure of Rs 2.36 crore FICN confiscated days before the serial blasts.

The bombs at the Gokul Chat Bhandar were planted minutes before the explosions were triggered and the cops suspected the bombers could have received injuries. The two injured suspects located in the hospital were found to be natives of Assam — from the same region where fake currency is dumped by Bangladeshi contacts for their onward journey into Indian cities.

Bangladesh is fast emerging as a hub of all anti-India operations — from training of terrorists and their infiltration into India to smuggling of arms and ammunition and fake currency. Besides Assam, some areas bordering West Bengal have recently been found to be hyper active for infiltration of jehadis of all kind.

Sources said the intelligence agencies have noticed a sudden influx of youths from northern states, particularly western UP, in the border towns of West Bengal. It is suspected that these youths are going across the border for training in arms and explosives.
