I.M.HINTS AT ACT OF SUICIDE TERRORISM

INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM MONITOR--PAPER NO. 679

B.RAMAN

The statement purporting to be from the Indian Mujahideen (IM) disseminated by E-mail on September 19,2010, is shown as having been signed by one Al Arbi the same day. It refers to certain anti-Muslim incidents which allegedly took place in Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh on the day of Eid (September 11). It also refers to the day when the total number of people allegedly killed by the security forces in Jammu & Kashmir crossed 100 ( September 17). This would indicate that this message must have been drafted between September 17 and 19.


2. The statement is in good English with very few grammar or typing mistakes. It has been drafted by one well-versed in the Holy Koran. Many of the religious allusions have been taken from some past messages of Osama bin Laden, but bin Laden has not been mentioned anywhere by name. The last para of the message has been borrowed almost word for word from a message against Gen.Pervez Musharraf and the Pakistani Army issued by bin Laden in September 2007 calling for the wrath of Allah on them for the raid into the Lal Masjid of Islamabad in July,2007. It reads: "O,Allah,deface them, break their backs and heads, split them up and destroy their unity; O, Allah, afflict them with the loss of their near and dear ones as they have afflicted us with the loss of our near and dear ones;O, Allah, we seek refuge in You from their evilness and we place You at their throats; O,Allah, make their plotting their destruction; O,Allah, suffice for us against them with whatever You wish; O,Allah, destroy them for they cannot escape You; O, Allah, count them, kill them and leave not even one of them. " There are only two minor changes. bin Laden had not said "deface them". He had also not said "and heads". One does not know wherefrom bin Laden had originally taken his curse against Musharraf and the Pakistani Army. bin Laden's curse against them has been converted by the IM into a curse against the Indian people and officials. I had referred to bin Laden's message of September 2007 in my book "Terrorism---Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow--Page 234.


3. The statement does not directly claim responsibility on behalf of the IM for the attack in Delhi on September 19 in which two Taiwanese tourists were injured. However, it indirectly hints at its responsibility by saying: "In the name of Allah we dedicate this attack of retribution...."


4. In its reference to the forthcoming Commonwealth Games, it says: "On the one hand Muslim blood is flowing like water, while on the other hand you are preparing for the festival of games. This is surely not a Child's play. Mind you this is the initiative from the Lions of Allah and we warn you to host the Commonwealth Games if you have a grain of salt. We know that the preparations for the Games are at its peak. Beware we too are preparing in full swing for a Great Surprise. The participants will be solely responsible for the outcome as our bands of Mujahideens love death more than you love life."


5. It has highlighted in red ink the following words: "Our bands of Mujahideen love death more than you love life." This could be a hint or threat that it is planning to commit an act of suicide or suicidal terrorism. The IM has not so far indulged in either.


6. While over 75 per cent of the statement is about alleged atrocities against Muslims in Jammu & Kashmir, there are also condemnatory references to the death of two IM suspects during a raid by the Delhi police on September 19,2008, to the arrests of some alleged members of the IM by the Anti-Terrorism Squad of the Maharashtra Police in connection with the Pune Bakery blast of February 13 last and some alleged anti-Muslim incidents in Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh on Eid day. While the IM has threatened to launch a campaign of reprisals in solidarity with the Muslims of Kashmir, its initial attacks could be in Delhi, Mumbai and Ratlam. ( 20-9-10)

Sir, this is what I was mentioning in one of my comments. Indians lack original thinking. Like Bollywood, don’t take pain, Copy good foreign movie & paste here with some changes. Same here, just copy & paste, copy & paste, copy & paste! Outsourcings ke side effects! Ha Ha Ha!

As far as Allah Mian's wrath & all that is concerned, we know on whose side Allah Mian is & whom he is going to punish. Allah Mian is watching how Muslims are being treated in India & in Pakistan & China & other places. Allah Mian is watching that when poor Muslims are suffering & dying In Pakistan due to flood, its rich are not still not opening their wallets, while, Christian west & Hindu India is donating money for them.

Allah Mian is also watching how Hindu Indians & Christian west is helping poor Muslims in Afghanistan in their need; he is also watching who is bleeding Muslims in Afghanistan day & night through its proxies. So I know Allah Mian is going to support us. I am not worried about it.

On serious note, this is the price we ll have to pay for being neighbour of Pakistan. As I always fear, in coming months as Pakistan further descends into Chaos & Pak govt loses control over admn., there ll be more & more jihad & not less, which ll consume it. We shld prepare ourselves for it.

@ambi & all readers,

IM terrorists are about as much Indian as Pakistanis are or Macaulay's children are. Just like IM terrorists the later two versions were also born in India.

For IM terrorists their karm is Pakistan their Dharm is Pakistan so obviously:
1) They are Pakistanis; or
2) There is a Hindu/Yahoodi/Xtian conspiracy to.....

Take your pick, the pick that accords with.....



@ambi,

Allah Mian is watching the blood of Muslims flow:
1) because they deserve it,
2) because it is part of the cognizance that (s)he is taking while watching muslims killing muslims,
3) because it is part of the cognizance that (s)he is taking while watching gazzillion/brazzillion muslims enjoying the same treatment as their neighbours.

Take your pick, the pick that accords with.....
