Mumbai terrorists, hold hostages, demand all Mujahideens to be released

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

We want all Mujahideen released: Terrorist inside Oberoi
27 Nov 2008, 0948 hrs IST, AGENCIES

MUMBAI: A militant holed up inside Mumbai’s Oberoi Hotel told a news channel on Thursday that seven attackers were holding hostages inside the  luxury establishment.

“There are seven of us inside hotel Oberoi,” the man identified as Sahadullah told the channel. “We want all Mujahideens held in India released and only after that we will release the people.”

“Release all the Mujahideens, and Muslims living in India should not be troubled,” he said.

Fresh firing erupted early on Thursday in Taj hotel as commandoes moved in to flush out terrorists holding some foreigners hostage after a night of terror targeting ten places in Mumbai.

Smoke was seen billowing from the new building of the Taj Hotel — which stands next to the old building where terrorists are holed up.

While NSG operation was on in the old building, fire brigade personnel were trying to douse fire in the new wing.

Army commandoes moved into the luxury Oberoi and the Taj Mahal hotels to flush out terrorists holed up hours after an unspecified number of heavily armed gunmen went on a rampage in ten places in South Mumbai killing 101 persons and taking some foreigners hostage.

Fire and smoke was seen billowing from the hotel as firemen struggled hard to rescue over 100 people still trapped inside.

Five suspected terrorists were killed in two separate incidents overnight including two during a gun battle in the country’s iconic landmark Taj hotel, police said.

Maharashtra deputy chief minister R R Patil said nine suspected terrorists have been arrested. Schools and colleges were ordered to be closed.

Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh said five police officers including Anti Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare were killed in one of the worst terror strikes in the country’s financial capital that in all claimed the lives of at least 11 police personnel.

“The operation (by security forces) is still going on,” he said. Besides army commandoes, naval commandos and Rapid Action force personnel joined in the operations to rescue those stranded in the two hotels. Five columns of Army and 200 NSG commandoes have been rushed. Two sten guns have been recovered by police so far, he added.

Deshmukh said it was not immediately known how many terrorists were involved in the audacious attack in ten places that shook the western metropolis. The chief minister said the Taj and Oberoi are not in control yet. He said there are no terrorists in Cama hospital which was also targeted by gunmen.

Police reported that some hostages were still being held at the Taj Mahal and Oberoi with eyewitnesses saying the gunmen had targeted foreigners after they kept shouting: “Who has US or UK passports?” Several guests were also stuck.

Fire was still raging in the old wing of Taj hotel several hours after it was rocked by five to six blasts and enormous clouds of black smoke rose from the century-old edifice on Mumbai’s waterfront.

Islamic millitants take over Mumbai as Indian intelligentsia goes Hindu witchhunts

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

Pity the Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS), for missing the forest for the trees. It seems to have spent a disproportionate amount of energy on the Malegaon blasts. which allowed to the real enemies to walk in, and take over Mumbai.

As far as terror goes Hindu organizations are at the bottom of the pile. The less said about the media the better Media frenzy over phony Hindu terrorism

In all, the indian intelligentsia and establishment is terribly guilty of misleading the gullible public by attempting to dilute Islamic terrorism and equating it with phony Hindu terror. The truth is quite the opposite. Hindu scriptures and ethics do not sanction killing of innocents, whereas Islam glorifies jihad against kafirs which is a sacred duty of every good Muslim, carrying the highest of rewards.


Statesman News Service
MUMBAI, Nov. 26: At least 80 people, including at least one foreign tourist, were killed and some 200 injured as terrorists struck in yet another series of planned and synchronised attacks in the heart of India’s financial capital around midnight Wednesday.
Terrorists sprayed bullets from automatic weapons and hurled hand grenades at multiple near-simultaneous strikes at over a dozen spots across the metropolis, including at the five-star Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels, Victoria Terminus, Vile Parle, Santa Cruz, Worli and Leopold Cafe in Colaba.

Till well past midnight, terrorists holed up in the Taj and Oberoi hotels exchanged fire with security forces. Reports said the terrorists holed up at both hotels have taken several guests including some American and Western nationals hostage and have gathered them on one floor.

Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare, additional police commissioner Ashok Kamte and Mumbai Police “encounter specialist” Vijay Salaskar died while taking on the terrorists.

A little known outfit ~ “Deccan Mujahideen” ~ claimed reponsibility for the attacks.
An NSG team has been rushed to Mumbai from the Capital, and Army commando teams have entered the Oberoi hotel. At least two terrorists are reported to be holed up at the Oberoi.
The Navy, police and security teams were also trying to flush out an unknown number of terrorists at the Taj Mahal hotel.

While five blasts were reported from the Taj Mahal hotel, another took place at the Oberoi. The lobby of the latter and the roof of the former were on fire.

Karkare (54), who was probing the Malegaon blast case, was shot when leading the operation at the Taj. He was hit by three bullets in his chest. Kamte, a 1989 batch IPS officer, was killed while fighting terrorists at Metro Cinema along with Salaskar.

Three MPs and 200 people were stranded in the Taj Mahal hotel. The body of a foreign woman guest has been recovered from the hotel. The terrorists were reportedly hurling grenades and firing from the hotel’s roof.

Two terrorists were killed in a shootout near Chowpatty beach, hours after the initial attacks.

Several suspected terrorists have also been arrested, police said.
The terror strikes began at the Cafe Leopold in Colaba area about 9.30 p.m. At 10.33 p.m. a couple of terrorists entered the passenger hall at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), formerly known as the Victoria Terminus, armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades, and opened fire and threw grenades, Mumbai General Railway Police Commissioner Mr AK Sharma said.
At least 10 people died in the station premises, police said

Three persons were killed in a bomb explosion in a taxi on Mazgaon Dockyard Road and an equal number were gunned down at Taj Mahal Hotel.
Gunmen also fired indiscriminately at Colaba’s posh Café Leopold, popular with foreign tourists, where it all started.

Random firing also took place at the Ramada Hotel at Juhu, at Nariman Point, and at Cama Hospital in south Mumbai. A blast was reported in a taxi under a flyover in suburban Vile Parle. A petrol pump was blown up in south Mumbai, the epicentre of the attacks.
Firing also took place near Metro cinema, barely a kilometre away from CST. An eyewitness said the attackers hijacked a police vehicle after opening fire at two policemen in the vehicle.
Reports said the terrorists sprayed gunfire from inside vans, and from atop trees and the roofs of buildings.
Eyewitnesses said some people suspected to be terrorists entered the CST building from outside the reservation counter and opened fire indiscriminately.
Two explosions also went off outside CST and eyewitnesses reported they heard gunshots outside the railway station building. A police officer said he saw two people armed with automatic weapons at CST.

“They opened indiscriminate fire and fled inside. They are reported to be holed up between platform seven and eight,” he said.

Police evacuated the CST station completely and halted all incoming trains as terrorists were sporadically firing from inside the grand old Victorian terminal of Central Railway.

Here a grenade was lobbed at the police in a bid to deter them from entering the station premises. Some policemen were reported injured.

Two armed terrorists reportedly reached the nearest GT Hospital near CST station to prevent entry of the wounded victims of their attack. The hospital has been cordoned by security forces.

Huge confusion prevailed as initial reports ascribed the firing to gang war but the picture soon became clear given the professional vehemence of the attacks.
Far from south Mumbai, a well-to-do suburb of Vile Parle also reported a car bomb blast which killed at least five people. Reports of car blasts were reported from Mazgaon and neighbouring localities. Firing was also reported from the north Mumbai locality of Borivali and near the Maharashtra state Assembly building.

Sixty bodies and over 200 persons injured were brought at St George’s Hospital, hospital sources said. Seven bodies were brought to GT hospital while two bodies were brought to Cooper hospital. Four bodies were brought to Mumbai hospital.

Police commissioner Mr Hasan Gafoor has asked Mumbai citizens to “stay inside wherever they are” and not to venture out as the entire city and suburbs along with rest of the state has been put on the highest ever alert sounded.

In New Delhi, Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh assured the Maharashtra government of all assistance. The Opposition leader, Mr LK Advani, spoke to the PM who confirmed the terror strikes. The Centre decided to immediately dispatch National Security Guard commandos to supplement the efforts being made by local police and the CRPF.
Maharashtra chief minister Mr Vilasrao Deshmukh, who cancelled his Kerala trip and returned to Mumbai, strongly condemned the terror attacks and said stringent action will be taken against culprits involved in the incidents. He asked the people to stay indoors for their own safety and maintain calm.

A nationwide alert was sounded and all airports in the country put on high-security surveillance following the attacks that came less than a month after over 50 people died in serial terror bombings in Assam. All 5-star hotels in Delhi were put on alert.

Islamic terror attack in Mumbai: The idea is to strike into the hearts of the enemy and make them live in a state of perpetual terror

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

Rajaram: Jihad, Terrorism and Dhimmitude
In the Pakistani official manual, The Quranic Concept of War by Brigadier Malik, it is explicitly stated: “Terror struck into the hearts of the enemy is not only a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved… Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him.”

The idea is to make the enemy live in a state of perpetual terror. The authority for this is the Koran (Anfal 59-60): “Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.”

This is the seed of indiscriminate terror employed by Grand Masters of the Order of the Assassins centuries ago, and by Osama Bin Laden and a host of others today. This belief in the power of domination through terror, and its legitimacy, is what needs to be defeated. But first, it is necessary to recognize that this legitimacy rests on the scripture itself.

The basic truth is— terrorism runs like a thread throughout Islamic history. It is futile to try to separate Islamic terror from Islam.

The principles of jihAd elaborated in countless compendia composed by Islamic scholars, have been generalized from concrete practices of the Prophet, and confirmed by Allah through ?revelations? in the Quran. In turn, these principles have guided all swordsmen of Islam throughout these fourteen countries and in many lands.

India has had a prolonged experience of jihAd from the day when the first Muslim army stepped into Sindh in 712 CE and won its first victories after suffering a number of defeats for 78 years. Lands in Seistan, Khurasan, Transoxiana and Afghanistan where Hindu religion and culture had flourished for long, had been subjected to jihAd in earlier years. We are citing some of the prominent jihAds waged in India by the most famous mujAhids. Rest here

To this day, militant Islam sees India as “unfinished business” and it remains high on the agenda of oil-rich Moslem countries such as Saudi Arabia rest Islam’s Other Victims: India

Muslim appeasement has crippled India

Why terrorists can relax in India

Prophet Muhammad on Holy War Against Al-Hind (India)

Andre Wink describes that this aspiration to conquer India had existed since the time of the Prophet, as is evidenced by the sacred texts:

“… in the hadith collections the prophet Muhammad himself is credited with the aspiration of conquering India. Participants in the holy war against al-Hind [the Hindus] are promised to be saved from hell-fire… Thus also an eschatological work which is called the Kitab al-Fitan (’Book of Trials’) credits Muhammad with saying that God will forgive the sins of the members of the Muslim army which will attack al-Hind, and give them victory.”11 source


In one of the Hadiths (Muslim scripture) the Prophet Muhammad is
quoted as saying “Two groups of my Ummah Allah has protected from
the hellfire: a group that will conquer India and a group that
will be with Isa ibnu Maryam (Jesus, son of Mary).” The first
attempted invasion of India by Muslims occurred in 636 CE — under
Caliph Umar, within four years of Muhammad’s death. The first 16
invasion attempts utterly failed.

When cowards run the State, the nation bleeds

Wondrous Treatment Of Kafirs In Islam

After reading the above passages you should be able to comprehend the true nature of a muslim and the reason behind the countless killings, rapes, arsons, and loots done by muslims throughout history. Now I will quote from the Quran below to support what I have stated above. The chapters and verse numbers are also stated here for refernce.

Verses from the Koran:

VIII/12: When thy Lord inspired the angels (saying:) I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.

Here one can clearly see that the Quran is openly saying to the muslims to give a torturous death to those who are non-believers of the Islamic faith.

XCVIII/6: Lo! those who disbelieve, among the people of the Scripture and idolaters, will abide in fire of hell. They are the worst of created beings.

From the above passage you can clearly see that according to Mohammed, Allah has reserved a special place for non- mulsims–HELL!

IX/5: Then when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor- due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

This verse tells us that muslims are free to convert non-muslims by force and brutality. If unsuccessful in doing so, they are free to kill.

IX/73: Oh Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites! Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey’s end.

LXIX/30-37: (It will be said)Take him and fetter him and expose him to hell fire. And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits. Lo! he used not to believe in Allah the tremendous, and urged not on the feeding of the wretched. Therefore hath he no lover hear this day nor any food save filth which none but sinners eat.

Here we get a description of how to punish Non Muslims. This is in practice even today in Islamic countries. In fact, the Sikh Gurus and their families were tortured by muslims as prescribed in the Quran. For example, Sikh guru Tegh Bahadur on refusing to accept Islam, was brought to the prison in a cage like he was a wild animal. Three of his disciples were murdered in front of him. One of them was Bhai Mati Das. He was sawed alive. The other was wrapped up in cotton and burnt alive. Bhai Dyala, the third one, was boiled alive. Guru Tegh Bahadur himself was brutally tortured and killed in a similar fashion. We see further support of these types of torments in the verses below.

XLIV/43-50: LO! the tree of Zaqqum (The tree that grows in the heart of hell bearing fruits like devil’s heads) – the food of the sinner. Like molten brass, it seetheth in their bellies as the seething of boiling water. (And it will be said): Take him and drag him to the midst of hell, then pour upon his head the torment of boiling water. Saying: TASTE! LO! thou wast forsooth the mighty, the noble! Lo! this is that whereof ye used to doubt.

IX/123: O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you and let them find harshness in you and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him).

IV/144: O Ye who believe! choose not disbelievers for your friends in place of believers. Would you give Allah a clear warrant against you ?

This verse clarifies the fact that a true Muslim can never be a friend of a person of another faith. People who believe otherwise are under delusion.

IX/29: Fight those who do not profess the true faith (Islam) till they pay the jiziya (poll tax) with the hand of humility.

This verse in Quran gave birth to the law that all non muslims living in an Islamic state have to pay the jiziya or poll tax for the privilege of being there. These people are called zimmis and are allowed to live and work in the Islamic lands under the following 20 disabilities: (one has to wonder if apartheid was derived from this)

  1. They are not to build any new places of worship.
  2. They are not to repair any old places of worship which have been destroyed by the muslims.
  3. They are not to prevent muslim travellers from staying in their places of worship.
  4. They are to entertain for 3 days any Muslim who wants to stay in their homes and for a longer period if the muslim falls ill.
  5. They are not to harbor any hostility or give aid and comfort to hostile elements.
  6. They are not to prevent any one of them from getting converted to Islam.
  7. They have to show respect to every Muslim.
  8. They have to allow Muslims to participate in their private meetings.
  9. They are not to dress like muslims.
  10. They are not to name themselves with Muslim names.
  11. They are not to ride on horses with saddle and bridle.
  12. They are not to possess arms.
  13. They are not to wear signet or seals on their fingers.
  14. They are not to sell or drink liquor openly
  15. They are to wear a distinctive dress which shows their inferior status and separates them from Muslims.
  16. They are not to propagate their custom and usages among the muslims.
  17. They are not to build their houses in the neighbourhood of muslims.
  18. They are not to bring their dead near the graveyards of the muslims.
  19. They are not to observe their religious practices publicly or mourn their dead loudly.
  20. They are not to buy muslim slaves.

Here again I have stated another handful of facts which expose the true nature of Islam. Any logical person by now should have realized that Islam is meant for the lowest of the low. The followers of Islam are mindless tyrannical demons who know nothing better than killing and torturing people in the name of Allah. And they do this because a pervert named Mohammed, among other things, promised his followers 72 Houris (Beautiful Virgin Women) and virility of 100 men in ‘Jannat’ (Heaven). This is very puzzling–why virility of 100 men and only 72 houris? Why not 100 houris? The answer is very simple–the prophet Mohammed promises these “pious” muslims that they will also be given 28 young boys in addition to the 72 houris for their sexual pleasure.

Anti Hindu Marxist historians whitewash Indian history of Islamic atrocities

Censoring of Indian History

By Nithin Sridhar

THE history of India has been whitewashed and distorted, first by European rulers, and after Independence by eminent historians of India and their supporters—the leftists, seculars and self-claimed progressives of India to meet their own ends. They have painted the pre-Islamic invasion period as a Dark Age and have glorified the Islamic period to be very peaceful and prosperous.

Ram Swarup says, “Marxists have taken to rewriting Indian history on a large-scale and it has meant its systematic falsification. They have a dogmatic view of history and for them the use of any history is to prove their dogma. Their very approach is hurtful to truth. The Marxists’ contempt for India, particularly the India of religion, culture and philosophy, is deep and theoretically fortified. It exceeds the contempt ever shown by the most die-hard imperialists.”1 Some of the common claims of these so-called eminent historians are:

1] The Aryan Invasion Theory is true.2

2] Large-scale destruction of Buddhists and Jain temples was done by Hindus in pre-Islamic India.3

3] The Muslim rulers were religiously tolerant and Islamic rule was prosperous. The eminent historians deny the destruction of Hindu temples or the killing of Hindus at the hands of Muslim rulers. They also deny the religious motive behind the killing of Hindus at the hands of Muslim rulers.4


1. Indian Express, January 15, 1989, quoted in book Hindu Temples: What Happened to Them, Vol.-1 by Sita Ram Goel.

2. For example, JNU historian Romila Thapar. (Article titled “Romila Thapar Defends the Aryan Invasion Theory!” by Vishal Agarwal, published at

3. In a letter published in The Times of India dated October 2, 1986, Romila Thapar had stated that handing over of Sri Ram’s and Sri Krishna’s birthplaces to the Hindus, and of disused mosques to the Muslims raises the question of the limits to the logic of restoration of religious sites. How far back do we go? Can we push this to the restoration of Buddhist and Jain monuments destroyed by Hindus? Or of the pre-Hindu animist shrines? (Quoted in book- Hindu Temples: What Happened to Them, Vol. 2. The Islamic Evidence by Sita Ram Goel.)

4. In his book Medival India (NCERT 2000), Satish Chandra writes, “The raid into India (by Timur) was a plundering raid and its motive was to seize the wealth accumulated by the Sultans of Delhi over the last 200 years. Timur then entered Delhi and sacked it without mercy, large number of people, both Hindus and Muslims, as well as women and children losing their lives.”, but Timur repeatedly states in his memoirs, the Tuzuk-i-Timuri, that he had a two-fold objective in invading Hindustan. “The first was to war with the infidels,” and thereby acquire, “some claim to reward in the life to come.” The second motive was “that the army of Islam might gain something by plundering the wealth and valuables of the infidels.” He further says excepting the quarter of the saiyids, the ulema and other Musulmans, the whole city was sacked.

Negationism and the Muslim Conquests

Hindu Slaughter: the account of the Islamic conquests of India

The magnitude of Muslim attrocities in India is so great that I grossly understimate their scope simply by attempting to describe them, especially within the scope of this short essay. By the sword of Islam, an entire civilization was destroyed and the number of dead easily number in the many tens of millions over several hundred years 14. The value of the booty – jewels and unbored pearls and rubies, shining like sparks or like wine congealed with ice, and emeralds like fresh sprigs of myrtle, and diamonds in size and weight like pomegranates 15 – can never be measured. According to Durant, As a result of [this] fanaticism, thousands of temples which had represented the art of India through a millennium were laid in ruins. We can never know, from looking at India today, what grandeur and beauty she once possessed. India before Islam was one of the most advanced civilizations of all time. Rest Here

Mumbai terror: Islamic millitants were looking for British, Americans, says witness

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

Attackers were looking for British, Americans, says witness

November 27, 2008 03:55 IST

British national Alex Chamberlain, who works for the Indian Premier League in Mumbai, was in a restaurant at the Oberoi hotel when he heard gunfire, and barely managed to escape.
When the terrorists stormed the building, he and a group of people were ushered into the kitchen. Chamberlain told Sky News that one of the waiters was shot in the arm.

“They were talking about Britons and Americans specifically. They shot people completely unnecessarily,” he said.

The group of about 30 to 40 people were then “marched up like sheep” by a “young guy with a sub-machine gun, who was about 22-23.”

The gunman then told people to stop and asked them to put their hands up. The attacker asked if any of the people were British or Americans.

Chamberlain said: “My Indian friend told me ‘don’t be a hero’ and tell him you’re Italian and that kind of stuff’.”

Chamberlain said he got to about the 18th floor of the hotel and there was a gunman below them, and there were gunshots above and smoke everywhere.

The Briton and another person managed to sneak out of a fire door “without the gunman seeing us”, where they stayed for about 15 minutes.

“I phoned my girlfriend and told her I loved her and thought it would be the last time I would talk to anyone,” Chamberlain said.

He then walked “slowly downstairs expecting to see somebody with a gun around the corner” but they had gone.

He then smashed a window. He said: “the smoke was so thick I thought we were going to suffocate”.

Chamberlain said he walked into the lobby and when he came out into the street there were about 20 police officers there “looking just as scared as any of us” and a few fire engines.

Islamofascism, islamofascist, jihadi added to Oxford dictionary

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

Controversial ‘Islamofascism’ added to Oxford dictionary
Nick Juliano, Published: Tuesday July 3, 2007

In its latest update, the Oxford English Dictionary now includes “Islamofascism” and related words, which came into vogue in recent years in the context of President Bush’s “war on terror.”

Islamofascism is one of nearly 2,700 new entries added to the dictionary in the last three months, according to a press release from Oxford University Press.

Other words added to the dictionary include Islamofascist, Islamophobe, Islamophobic and jihadi.

The dictionary’s subscription-only Web site, accessed Tuesday afternoon by RAW STORY, defined Islamofascism as, “the advocacy or practice of a form of Islam perceived as authoritarian, intolerant, or extremist; [specifically] Islamic fundamentalism regarded in this way.” The dictionary’s first citation of the phrase comes from a 1990 article in London’s Independent, which observed “authoritarian government, not to say ‘Islamo-fascism’, is the rule rather than the exception” in Islamic societies.

Wikipedia says the Oxford American Dictionary defines Islamofascism as “a controversial term equating some modern Islamic movements with the European fascist movements of the early twentieth century.”

Islamophobia is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “hatred or fear of Islam, [especially] as a political force; hostility or prejudice towards Muslims.”

The term was introduced by a French writer to describe the Iranian Revolution of 1978, according to a Wall Street Journal column by Roger Scruton.

Scruton said the term has become popular since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, because “it provides a convenient way of announcing that you are not against Islam but only against its perversion by terrorists.”

Some say the term carries more political and xenophobic weight, though. Spencer Ackerman, blogging at The New Republic last year, wrote of a trip to Dearborn, Mich., which has a high population of Muslims who were upset over Bush’s invokation of the phrase.

“It doesn’t diminish the crimes of the Taliban to observe that a Nazi would find Taliban-ruled Afghanistan unrecognizable,” Ackerman wrote “‘Islamofascism’ merely strokes an erogenous zone of the right wing, which gains pleasure from a juvenile reductio ad Hitlerum with the enemies of the U.S.”

Dhule cops: Muslims mastermind all acts of terror, Hindu action a mere retaliation

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

HJS Special Report: Highlights: Abduction, Rape, Murders of Hindus in Dhule!

Muslims mastermind all acts of terror, Hindu action a mere retaliation: Dhule cops on riot
Mon, Nov 17 04:40 AM

While the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad questions suspected radical Hindus who it alleges masterminded the September 29 Malegaon blast, policemen probing the October 5 riots in Dhule, while seeking remand of one of the riot accused, have stated: “It is an established fact that Muslims are the masterminds behind all terrorist activities across India.”

The statement was made while seeking remand of a local Muslim leader Shaabir Khan alias Shaabir Bhangarwala who is accused of instigating the communal violence in Dhule last month which claimed nine lives and left many injured. Khan has been booked in two cases of murder, rioting and looting while other male members of his family have been booked in seven cases each.

The remand application for Khan was filed before the Dhule Additional Sessions Judge A Baviskar. Stating that Khan was one of the prime accused in the murder of one Imran Sheikh, police also tried to justify the act of the hardline Hindu Rakshak Samiti (HRS) which is being blamed for the violence in Dhule after the Malegaon blast. Seeking Khan’s custody, the police stated that what the Hindu group had done was “mere retaliation to what has been happening in the country for past few years.” Two men of the HRS group have been under arrest since the riots.

Khan’s advocate Runwal P S said: “In the FIR, the police states that around 800-1000 people have been a part of the riot but the remand has 50 names with 47 belonging to the Muslim community. It is clear that the police is acting unconstitutionally and is hell bent on giving the probe a communal twist.”

When contacted, Dhule SP Sunil Kolhe said: “We cannot make such a grave mistake and engage in such stereotyping. I will look into the matter. If such an act has been done by our men, we will see how to contain it immediately.” End

MAHARASHTRA Deputy Chief Minister RR Patil has categorically denied The Indian Express report that the Maharashtra Police have submitted a statement saying Muslims are the masterminds behind all acts of terror in India, and Hindu action is mere retaliation.
But the Express is in possession of a copy of the statement made by the police in Dhule, that proves otherwise.

In its application for remand of a local Muslim leader, Shaabir Khan alias Shaabir Bhangarwala, accused of instigating last month’s communal violence in Dhule which claimed nine lives, the police said: “Bharat deshaat baryach pramanat thikthikani bombspot zaale asun tyaamadhey bombspot ghadvun aanare vyakti yaa Muslim samajachya nishpann zaalele aahet.” Translated from the Marathi, it reads: “It is an established fact that Muslims are the masterminds behind all terrorist activities across India.” After the Express first reported the statement on Monday, Patil, who is also Maharashtra’s home minister, said: “I have spoken to the Dhule SP and he has told me that there is no such mention in the documents. I have clarified it.” The police filed the remand application before the Dhule Additional Sessions Judge A Baviskar.

According to the police, “the October 5 riot was mainly instigated by inflammatory speeches made by (Shaabir) Khan who had just returned from Haj a day before.” Khan was arrested a week after the violence.

The police also tried to justify the actions of the Hindu Rakshak Samiti (HRS), which has been blamed for the violence in Dhule days after the Malegaon blast. What the HRS did was “mere retaliation to what has been happen ing in the country over the past few years”, the application said.

Two HRS activists have been arrested since the riots. Khan has been booked in two cases of murder, rioting and looting, while other male members of his family have been booked in seven cases each.

Khan’s lawyers have moved the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court, challenging the rejection of his bail plea.

It is an established fact that Muslims are the masterminds behind all terrorist activities across India.

Islamic terror attacks in Mumbai; 80 dead, over 900 injured, warned in September by IM

Posted by jagoindia on November 27, 2008

Pictures of terrorists here

In Sep 15, 2008 edition of Deccan Herald, IM’s warning on Mumbai attack was published

Next Mumbai: Indian Mujahideen
The Indian Mujahideen, which has claimed responsibility for the Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Jaipur blasts killing at least 130 people in a span of four months, has now threatened to carry out attacks in Mumbai, report Agencies.

Accusing Mumbai Police’s ATS of harassing Muslims, Indian Mujahideen said in its email that it was closely watching the ATS.
“You should know that your acts are not at all left unnoticed; rather we are closely keeping an eye on you and just waiting for the right time to execute your bloodshed. We are aware of your recent raids at Ansarnagar, Mograpada in Andheri and the harassment and trouble you created there for the Muslims,” the group said in the email they sent to various media houses on Saturday evening.

“If this is the degree your arrogance has reached, and if you think that by these stunts you can scare us, then let the Indian Mujahideen warn all the people of Mumbai that whatever deadly attacks Mumbaikars will face in future, their responsibility would lie with the Mumbai ATS and their guardians – Vilasrao Deshmukh and R R Patil,” the email said. “You are already on our hit-list and this time very very seriously.”

Mumbai: In one of the most violent terror attacks on Indian soil, Mumbai came under an unprecedented night attack as terrorists used machine guns, including AK-47s, and grenades to strike at the city’s most high-profile targets — the hyper-busy CST (formerly VT) rail terminus; the landmark Taj Hotel at the Gateway and the luxury Oberoi Trident at Nariman Point; the domestic airport at Santa Cruz; the Cama and GT hospitals near CST; the Metro Adlabs multiplex and Mazgaon Dockyard — killing at least 80 and sending more than 900 to hospital, according to latest reports.

The attacks have taken a tragic toll on the city’s top police brass: The high-profile chief of the anti-terror squad Hemant Karkare was killed; Mumbai’s additional commissioner of police (east) Ashok Kamte was gunned down outside the Metro; and celebrated encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar was also killed.

The attacks appeared to be aimed at getting international attention as the terrorists took upto 40 British nationals and other foreigners hostage. The chairman of Hindustan Unilever Harish Manwani and CEO of the company Nitin Paranjpe were among the guests trapped at the Oberoi. All the internal board members of the multinational giant were reported to be holed up in the Oberoi hotel.

Two terrorists were reported holed up inside the Oberoi Hotel. Fresh firing has been reported at Oberoi and Army has entered the hotel to flush out the terrorists.

An unknown outfit, Deccan Mujahideen, has sent an email to news organizations claiming that it carried out the Mumbai attacks.

The Army and Navy in Mumbai were put on alert. 65 Army commandos and 200 NSG commandos were being rushed to Mumbai, Home Minister Shivraj Patil said.

The Navy commandos too have been asked to assist the police. Special secretary M L Kumawat is in constant touch with the state police.

Some media reports attributed the attack to Lashkar-e-Taiba. There were also unconfirmed reports that some of the terrorists came in by sea. A boat laden with explosives was recovered later at night off the Gateway of India.

Well after midnight, sources said two of the terrorists were shot and wounded at Girgaum in south Mumbai. The two were driving in a commandeered silver-coloured Skoda car. Earlier, these men had sprayed bullets from a police Bolero, outside the Metro Adlabs multiplex.

The attacks occurred at the busiest places. Besides hotels and hospitals, terrorists struck at railway stations, Crawford Market, Wadi Bunder and on the Western Express Highway near the airport. Several of these places are within a one-km radius of the commissioner of police’s office.

“This is definitely a terrorist strike. Seven places have been attacked with automatic weapons and grenades. Terrorists are still holed up in three locations Taj and Oberoi hotels and GT Hospital. Encounters are on at all three places,” said Maharashtra DGP A N Roy.

St George’s Hospital and G T Hospital were said to have received 75 bodies and more than 250 injured people, additional municipal commissioner R A Rajeev said. Bombay Hospital got two bodies and 30 injured people were admitted there; Cooper Hospital, Vile Parle, got three dismembered bodies.

Three of the deaths occurred inside the Taj and one G T Hospital attendant died in a shootout inside the hospital. There were reports of people cowering under tables and chairs at both the Taj as well as G T Hospital.

Metro Junction resident Manoj Goel said: “My brother, Manish, died in the firing at Colaba’s Hamaal Galli.” Cops fired back at the men — probably from one of the Lashkar groups, dressed in black and with backpacks and SRPF, Crime Branch, ATS and teams of military commandos were summoned to the spot. Train services at CST were suspended and all roads leading to and from south Mumbai were blockaded.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh cut short his Kerala visit and was returning to Mumbai. He described the situation in Mumbai as “very serious”.

Deshmukh promised “stringent action” against the assailants but the mood across Mumbai was not so optimistic.

There were reports of firing around several landmark buildings in the Colaba-Nariman Point area, including the Taj hotel, Oberoi and other tourist attractions and pubs like Leopold’s. The top floor of Oberoi was said to be on fire amid reports of blasts in the area and blood-smeared bodies were being brought out of the Taj lobby.

Terrorists were said to be holed up at the Taj as well as G T Hospital and cops scampered to cordon off these places. A white flag was seen fluttering from an Oberoi Hotel window around 11.20 pm, where a blast was said to have occurred.

The blast on the Western Express Highway — near Centaur Hotel outside the airport — occurred in a taxi, deputy commissioner of police Nissar Tamboli said.

The firing and bombing started close to the Gateway of India. The gunbattle then moved on towards CST and raged on for over an hour from 10 pm, sending commuters running out of the station.

The assailants also fired into the crowd at CST and people on the trains and then ran out of the station themselves and into neighbouring buildings, including Cama Hospital, after being challenged by cops.

SRPF personnel then entered the iconic BMC building — just opposite CST — to take aim at the assailants, BMC commissioner Jairaj Phatak said. “We fear some of the assailants are still inside the station and we want to catch them if they come out,” a police official said.

Vikhroli police station senior inspector Habib Ansari was on his way to work from his Colaba home when he saw two armed men, with sophisticated weaponry, trying to run into bylanes near the Gateway of India.”I rushed back to Colaba and all policemen, including GRP and RPF personnel, were called up,” he added.
