Islamic Terrorism in India

Most Muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims

Jihad by Muslims, now pan India phenomenon, they are killing Hindus at will all over India

It’s 63 and counting. That’s the number of bomb blasts that have happened in India over the last six months. This works out to an average of one every three days! Of course, blasts usually don’t happen singly. Most of the time, they are serial in nature for jihadis have perfected the art of creating a cascade of terror, be it in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Delhi or Guwahati.

The Government will not admit this, but the jihadis have succeeded in their diabolical aim of creating an atmosphere of insecurity and fear across the country. No city, no State is immune to this. Even if explosions haven’t happened in Kerala yet, it doesn’t mean that terror merchants don’t have the State on their radar.

Some 300 persons are believed to have been indoctrinated there already. Intelligence agencies, as usual in the dark, stumbled upon this startling fact only when two Kerala-born militants were gunned down in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir.

From Idduki to Imphal, Kargil to Kanniya Kumari, India lives in trepidation. It is already being compared to jihadi-infested Iraq, Afghanistan and even Pakistan. With nearly 1,000 innocent civilians lost so far this year, and 18,360 total deaths from terrorist depredations in the country (excluding J&K) over the last decade, India has probably overtaken the tally of deaths in those countries.

But why India? There is no convincing answer to this question because nobody knows what the jihadis want. In Iraq, they are fighting foreign invasion and a puppet regime; in Afghanistan they are battling to overthrow Hamid Karzai’s NATO-backed Government; in Pakistan they want to seize power from the incumbent Establishment. But that certainly cannot be their goal in this country. Despite the steady decline in their numerical predominance, Hindus constitute 80 per cent of India’s population, Muslims accounting for a meagre 14 per cent. So, the establishment of Dar-ul-Islam here is about as much a possibility as finding intelligent life on the Moon. Anyway, from Mohammad-bin-Kasim to Aurangzeb, Muslim conquerors pursued this ambition with resounding lack of success. Jinnah, too, knew its futility very well, which is why he bargained for a Muslim homeland to be carved out of India.

So, 300 years after the death of Aurangzeb, the dream of Islamising India would appear a lunatic idea. But do the jihadis really understand this? Judging by interrogation reports of arrested SIMI operatives as well as the elaborate e-mails sent by it and its surrogate Indian Mujahideen, it seems that the goal of establishing Nizam-e-Mustafa in Hindustan is something that actually drives several thousand Muslim youth into the waiting arms of jihadi outfits.

The terrorists’ strategy is two-pronged. First, they wish to destabilise the economy and cripple visible symbols of India’s success — the Bombay Stock Exchange building, Indian Institute of Science and offices of IT giants in Bangalore, to name just two. Alongside, they seek to knock the bottom out of Narendra Modi’s Vibrant Gujarat, paralyse Rajasthan’s tourism-driven economy, and spread panic through Delhi since events in the national Capital have a multiplier effect on publicity.

Their second, but parallel, strategy is to create pockets of Muslim dominance to serve as recruiting grounds through exploitation of the community’s perceived sense of victimhood. That explains the concerted manner in which liberal and “secular” opinion was mobilised in defence of the Batla House terrorists in Delhi and the selective targeting of Bodo people in the Assam blasts — a transparent bid to coerce indigenous populations of the North-Eastern States into submission.

The Assam blasts are, therefore, particularly ominous. They clearly reveal the operational co-ordination between local insurgent groups and jihadi organisations, with Bangladesh playing cupid. Although ULFA began as a terrorist outfit seeking Independence for Assam and expulsion of illegal Bangladeshi migrants, circumstances forced its leaders to seek refuge in Dhaka where Pakistan’s ISI had a field day indoctrinating them. Meanwhile, the rise of Harkat-ul-Jihadi-i-Islam (HuJI) was fostered by anti-India elements there and pushed to making common cause with ULFA and other insurgents in the North-East.

Finding recruits to carry out terrorist acts was no problem because millions of Bangladeshis live illegally all over India. In Assam, the migrants have caused an explosion in the State’s Muslim population in recent decades. In fact, demographers are certain that within the next two Censuses, Assam’s Muslim population will overtake Hindus, courtesy unchecked illegal infiltration from across the porous border and the alarming rate of their reproduction.

A pusillanimous Government in Dispur and Delhi has persistently ignored alarm bells sounded by the Army, indigenous Assamese leaders and Governors like Gen S K Sinha. Having secured the benign patronage of practitioners of votebank politics, Muslims in Assam have become emboldened to form their own political party — AUDF, headed by perfume baron Badruddin Ajmal. Soon, it will be impossible to run a Government there without the participation of AUDF and sometime later, so called mainstream parties may even be compelled to become Ajmal’s junior partners.

In other words, we are probably witnessing the rise of a new version of the pre-Independence Muslim League which, eventually, will legitimise the demand for Assam’s separation. The current effort of the jihadi forces there is to assist the process of Muslim consolidation so that the goal of India’s dismemberment comes that much closer.

If we are serious about reversing this trend, gloves will have to come off. Sadly, there is intense hesitation among India’s middle class to call a spade a spade when it comes to something as sensitive as a communal classification of realities.

While it is nobody’s case that every Muslim is a potential jihadi, the fact is that millions of madarsas all over the country have become terror factories. It is not enough to glibly talk about reforming their curricula by introducing computer training and so on. Let us not forget that al-Qaeda is for all practical purposes a “virtual” organisation that exists largely on the net. So, imparting computer skills can cut both ways. What is needed is the introduction of a stern licensing system for all madarsas so that unregistered jihad factories can be shut down by force if necessary.

Second, and more immediately, the process of identifying and deporting illegal Bangladeshi immigrants from Assam and the rest of India must be seriously expedited.

A Times of India report that over 62,000 Bangladeshis have gone “missing” after entering India with valid documents is absolutely stunning. Just imagine what must be the number of illegal Bangladeshis if so many “legal” visitors have disappeared!

It is well known that HuJI acts as the executor of jihadi terror in most parts of India, working through legal and illegal Bangladeshi migrants. The time has come to serve a firm Quit India notice on them. If they don’t leave voluntarily within a given deadline, they must be forcibly deported and if necessary simply rounded up in hordes and dumped into detention camps.

Shades of Gulag, did somebody say? But then, better a Gulag than the impending dismemberment of India.

India Under Siege
31 Oct 2008

Blasts in Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Delhi and Malegaon— the list goes on. We perhaps believed the worst of the terror run was over. But the pre-Diwali lull proved false. Yesterday, several blasts struck Assam — in Guwahati, Bongaigaon, Barpeta and Kokrajhar — leaving scores dead. Spread over almost the entire state, the horrific attacks proved yet again that enemies of India’s territorial and emotional integrity have organisational and technical capabilities that our law enforcers repeatedly underestimate.

While fanatics demonstrate with sickening regularity their power to strike at will, the official response is invariably an assertion of renewed resolve to fight terror. Assam’s tragedy shows up, damningly, the government’s failure to deliver on that promise.

There were recent warnings that Assam was on the radar of a United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA)-Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI) combine. It should have been on high alert, more so given recent ethnic strife between Bodo tribespeople and Bangladeshi migrants. The north-eastern state’s strategic importance in terms of resource wealth — oil, in particular — and security cannot be overstated.

More, its social fabric has long been stretched thin by students’ movements against ‘foreigners’, fears of demographic change, ULFA’s secessionist violence and ethnic strife fomented by the National Democratic Front of Bodoland. Pakistani and Bangladeshi militants have long been known to be fishing in these troubled waters; home-grown terror in the form of the Indian Mujahideen (IM) has only helped their agenda in the north-east and elsewhere.

In September, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh insisted that the UPA wasn’t soft on terror. This had gone along with a frank admission of gaps in our intelligence network. It may be asked what the home ministry has done since then to reinforce preventive intelligence and law enforcement mechanisms. When it comes to anti-terror combat, it seems India can no longer afford the growing perception of being led by an excessively gentlemanly prime minister and a dandy but weak home minister. For, the prevailing sense of drift has only served to embolden all kinds of challenges to the Indian Union.

Terrorism is now a pan-India phenomenon, with terror recruits being traced to even Kerala. Home-grown extremists — whether of the IM or of the saffron variety — are deepening religious divides. At the same time, Naxalite carnage is beating previous records. Now, regional chauvinism of the Raj Thackeray kind threatens to blow up into an interstate conflagration. People’s representatives can no longer wink at the fact that India’s unity is under siege or play games of electoral one-upmanship.

The prime minister must immediately do something. He should call an all-party emergency meeting, so that the entire political spectrum stands — and is seen to stand — united against balkanisers and hate-mongers of every stripe.

  1. The creation of Bangladesh is proving to be one of the great blunders made by India. The country seems to have forgotten that Bangladeshis are Pakistanis by another name. They have to be sent back. Those who are sheltering/encouraging them to stay on in India for their votes need to taught a lesson by the people of this country.
