Chaos and fear continues to haunt India as the poor continue to pay with their flesh and blood, for a senseless war that has been imposed on them by the followers of a violent ideology.
With rampant news of continued atrocities in Indian Occupied Kashmir and the appalling state of affairs that the Muslim minority in India is being made to go through, a recent statement by the disqualified ex-PM of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has dug out an old and rotting skeleton from the closet.
Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab was allegedly a Pakistani militant and the main proponent of the Infamous Mumbai Attacks under the garb of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group, Kasab was the only attacker captured alive by police.
A narrative that sold like hot cake aired by one of the biggest Pakistani news channels which did an all out expos about Kasab hailing from a Pakistani village, Faridkot, A family belonging to the Qassab (Butchers) community.
In late 2007, he and his friend have been narrated to have encountered members of Jama’at-ud-Da’wah, the political wing of Lashkar-e-Taiba, distributing pamphlets, and were persuaded to join. *Queue dramatic music and women wailing at a distance*
In 2006 Malegaon, a town in the Nashik district of the Indian state of Maharashtra, located at some 290 km to the northeast of state capital Mumbai, was rattled by a series of bombings, the blame was put on groups having links with Pakistan and Bangladesh. The Maharashtra Police blamed the Student Islamic Movement of India, further linking them to Lashkar-e-Taiba and in turn the ISI.
The unlikely twist surfaced recently in India with the arrests of 10 people, including a serving Lieutenant Colonel Prashad Srikant Purohit, a Hindu monk and nun for their alleged involvement in bomb explosions that killed six people in the Muslim-dominated town of Malegaon this year. So far, ten people, including a self-proclaimed Hindu seer and a serving lieutenant colonel, have been arrested for their involvement in the Sep 29 bombing. Besides Purohit, of the accused also include Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, Shivnarayan Singh Kalsangram, Shyam Bhawarlal Sahu, Major Ramesh Shivji Upadhyay (retd), Sameer Kulkarni, Rakesh Dattaram Dhavde and Ajay Rahirkar.
The suspicion is now directed at the extremist Hindu movement Sangh Parivar, a network linked to a former Major, and now in custody, Ramesh Upadhyay who represents the terrorist organization, Abhinav Bharat. The chilling part of the entire episode is the involvement of accused Lt Col Purohit in bomb attack on the Samjhauta Express to which he confessed. During investigation Col Purohit has also confessed to training Hindu terrorists for attacking Muslims, besides training them for attacking Samjhauta Express for which he had also supplied them RDX. He further confessed that it was intended to cause armed conflict between Pakistan and India so that anti-Muslim passions could be nurtured in India, leading to violence.
The Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) claimed that Purohit supplied RDX to one Bhagwan for Samjhauta Express blast. Public prosecutor Ajay Misar said Abhinav Bharat treasurer Ajay Rahirkar had handed Rs2.5 lakh to Lt Col P S Purohit. Mahant Amritanand Dev alias Dayanand Pandey, the self-styled pontiff who was arrested from Kanpur has revealed that it was under his instructions that Lt. Colonel Shrikant Purohit procured RDX from an army depot that was used in the Malegaon blast. According to reports Pandey was present in all the pre-blast meetings in Bhopal, Jabalpur and Faridabad, monitored operations meticulously and was also responsible for arranging the finances that came in through illegal channels.
It is believed that Pandey, a dropout from the National Defence Academy, collaborated with two other accused who are presently on the run Ramji Kalsangara, who allegedly planted the motorcycle owned by the Hindu ascetic Pragya Singh Thakur in Malegaon, and Sameer Dange. The suspects have also been questioned for May 2007 blast at Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad and the April 2006 twin blasts at New Delhis Jama Masjid. In the Mecca Masjid blasts as many as 14 people were killed and over 50 injured. The case was investigated by the city police special wing and was later handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation which could not come to any conclusion.
Investigations into the Samjhauta Express explosion and the Jamia Masjid blast also failed to make headway and police could not across on any tangible leads. Police have already established a strong link between Pandey and some of the suspects in the Kanpur blast case through surveillance. On Aug 24, two members of the right-wing Bajrang Dal were killed there while assembling bombs. After the arrest of Panday police is expecting to get some breaking clues in the 2006 Nanded blasts in Maharashtra as well. The arrests have reinforced growing suspicions over the last few years of a potential threat from Hindu extremists.
With the surfacing of the connection between Army personnel, BJP and the terror activities, the party too has come under heavy scrutiny. Sensing the gravity of the matter and possible questioning in connection with the Malegaon bombings, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Yogi Adityanath refused to assist in the investigations. I dare the police to arrest me and I will offer no help in their probe, he added, amid reports that he was likely to be questioned in connection with Malegaon. The BJP and its allied Hindu extremist groups are also questioning the investigation and blamed that it was an attempt to malign these groups.
They further announced to defend Pragya Singh (Sadhvi) who has confessed her role in the bombing, and to provide her legal help. BJP Initially denied any association with Pragya Singh but later supported her. Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh also accused that those parties that once sought lethal POTA (Prevention of Terrorism Act) charges framed against suspects from minority communities were now asking the government to go easy on the Hindu right-wing extremists.
The probe after arrest of Sadhvi and Col Purohit led to Adityanath, the successor of Mahant Avaidyanath of the Gorakhpur Temple Trust, who is believed to be responsible for the BJPs foothold in eastern Uttar Pradesh and is also known for his Hindu awakening rallies. He justified the attack on churches in Orissa following the killing of a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader. The Hindu reaction (after the killing of the priest) is justified and it is high time that the Hindus should pick up weapons just like our gods and goddesses adorn weapons, had said. Adityanath has been active in reconverting other religious groups, particularly the low-caste converts to Christianity, back into the Hindu fold. In 2005, a large group of 1,800 people were converted in the town of Etah.

Cyril Almeida of Dawn Leaks fame did an interview with the ousted Nawaz Sharif, A tell-all, if you may.
Our respected former three times Prime Minister had the following to say, Militant organisations are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why cant we complete the trial? a reference to the Mumbai attacks.
Now the most potent question remains, Who was Ajmal Kasab?
A lot can be written an said but I will just like to discuss one particular piece of evidence, perhaps the greatest piece of Investigation in the history of this universe, If I say so myself.
My two cents on the debacle are as follows, If you are a person who lives, breathes and sleeps Bollywood then this might be difficult to understand and fathom, nevertheless.
A CID style investigative video where Daya asks the tough questions from the notorious Kasab who now repentant over his mistakes and dying from the shame of killing innocent people in the name ofJihad made a teary eyed confessional, writhing in pain.
Be warned, the following video is not for the faint of heart, it might put you in a fit of uncontrollable hysterics.
“Baghwan mujhe nahi maaf karay gaa” clearly proving him as a Pakistani extremist Islamist Fundamentalist Jihadi.
“kia jihadi saab” – Saab is not a word used in pakistan and especially not by a trained mujahid. The producers of this fiasco need to be sacked, anyways
“Hooinga” – typical indian word, not used in Pakistan
“India duniya ki daur main agay hai” what a weak script man, a trained Jihadi Mujahid on his death bed praising the enemy for running fast? Jokes aside, Really? Really? When is Vivek Oberoi coming out from under the bed for a ‘Amchi Mumbai’ style monologue?
“jihadi ka matlab pata nahi” Look a thesaurus dude, A Google search perhaps? Did the friendly neighborhood Jihadi recruiter not tell you anything, someones been slacking on their job.
“baap ke paas paisa shaid ho” – interesting comment.
“Haan bola tha na” (refering to his objection over validity of the mission) – buddy this part of your acting was a giveaway. Not even a fool would send someone on a so called death defying mission, knowing that this person has doubts over the missions validity. Grow up, cook up better stories before you release them. Oh I forgot, Indians are only good at copying stories, not very good at writing one of their own.
“sarbrah” – Jihadi terminology for a leader is Ameer not sarbrah without exception.
“udhar ki hakoomat” A Pakistani referring to his country as Udhar, cute.
I dont have the stomach to decipher more of this nauseatingly bad directed and produced piece of brain flatulence.
If anyone has a lot of time to kill, as time kills them, Ironically, here is the full 50 minute grand revelation:
I have a friendly suggestion to make to our honorary courts, If Nawaz Sharif is sentenced to any kind of punishment in the future, It should only consist of him being made to watch the Ajmal Kasab Interrogation video on loop.
There is a lot more to say but Ill hold my peace for now, I will for now leave you with an incriminating peace of Investigative reporting by the nations favorite and trusted news channel.
While you are at it, watch this final piece of footage aswell.
