The Seven arrested by NIA, plot to kill Hindu leaders and ISIS link! Kerala exporting Mohammeda youth to ISIS after nuns and pastors!

 

Why the Coimbatore terror activities are downplayed?: When the people are made to focus on politics with propaganda, implant of fake news created through social media, media conclaves and so on, important news threatening the safety and security of common-men are sidelined, ignored and even suppressed. Thus, the links of Coimbatore arrested men with ISIS, etc., have been marginalized by the media and daily debates have been going on frivolous issues. Coimbatore has been simmering with the Islamic terrorist activities with the proximity with Kerala, gold smuggling and hawala activities. Unfortunately, or otherwise, Kerala’s link with Coimbatore in ISIS activities have been a regular feature. None could forget that David Coleman Headley stayed at Munaru Guest House with all facilities to him, so that he could get information to carry out 26/11 attack in Bombay.

19-12-2018: NIA raids the houses of seven jailed plotters: A team of National Investigation Agency officials from Kochi in Kerala conducted raids at seven places in Chennai, Coimbatore and Tindivanam as part of their probes into a conspiracy to kill Hindu leaders in Tamil Nadu and Kerala[1]. The raids, which went on for 4 to 10 hours on 19-12-2018, Wednesday, were conducted at Otteri, Mahakavi Bharathi Nagar and Pallavaram in Chennai and at Ukkadam, Kunniyamuthur and NH Road in Coimbatore and in Tindivanam[2]. The NIA team of the Kerala police recently arrested a 7-member gang under for conspiring to kill Hindu Makkal Katchi founder-president Arjun Sampath and Sakthi Sena leader Anbu Mani[3]. From the gang, the NIA team learned about supporters holed up in various parts of Tamil Nadu who were to assist them in their operation[4]. The NIA team obtained a search warrant from the NIA special court in Poonamallee and continued surprise checks[5]. They had invoked provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against the accused[6].

 

FIR No 977/ 2018 registered: The case was originally registered as FIR No 977/ 2018 at B3 Variety Hall Police Station, Coimbatore City on September 1, 2018, under Sections 143 (Unlawful Assembly) and 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code besides provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against the seven arrested accused persons[7]. And the raids carried on now, consequent to further investigation[8]. A group of seven persons from different parts of Tamil Nadu formed a terrorist gang with allegiance to the proscribed terrorist organization ISIS and had entered into a criminal conspiracy to kill some Hindu leaders of Coimbatore, thereby threatening the communal harmony besides the security and sovereignty of India[9].

What recovered at the houses of seven arrested: the details of the houses of the seven arrested and the material recovered are as follows:

  1. S Shamsudeen: According to the police, at 7 am on 19-12-2018, a five-member team of NIA carried out a raid in the residence of S Shamsudeen (20), at Parasurama Street, Pallavaram. His parents live in the house and the search lasted until 8.30 am. However, officials did not disclose if they seized anything from the house.
  2. S Salavudeen: Simultaneously, another team of NIA raided the house of S Salavudeen (25) at Dargha Cross Street at Otteri from 6.45 to 8.20 am. Sources said the NIA took two mobile phones, a DVD, a bank pass book and a copy of the Quran.
  3. I Jaffer Shaddique Ali: The house of another accused, I Jaffer Saqid Ali (29) at Pudu Nagar, MKB Nagar, was searched for two hours by a separate team.
  4. Ashique: at Variety Hall Road.
  5. Faizal Rahman: Faizal at GM Nagar were searched. At Faizal’s house, a 21 cm long dagger, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 2.16 lakh was seized along with Islamic literature and letters written in the letter pad of a Muslim outfit.
  6. S Ismail (25): of Tindivanam in Villupuram district. Inquiries revealed that Ismayil, the mastermind behind the murder conspiracy was a member of the banned terrorist organisation.
  7. Sahul Hameed alias Anwar (23), from Coimbatore

They had no previous enmity with the Hindu leaders but decided to kill inspired by the IS module. They all had befriended each other through Facebook and WhatsApp, while sharing information inspired on similar ideology[10]. As a larger network of terror links was suspected, the NIA took up the investigation into the case. A week ago, Arjun Sampath appeared before the NIA sleuths and submitted evidence for death threats; he received calls from various anonymous numbers[11].

Arjun Sampath deposed before NIA and given details: Recently, Arjun Sampath appeared before the NIA at Race Course, Coimbatore, and gave a detailed account of the threats he got over phone and submitted evidence. NIA also carried out raids in Coimbatore and Tindivanam. The residence of Ashik at Variety Hall Road and Faizal at GM Nagar in Coimbatore were raided. Sahul’s house in Kuniyamuthur and Ismail’s place at Tindivanam were searched[12]. It is alleged that Ismail of Tindivanam was a secret member of ISIS who passed on information to others through a social media website[13]. The men, police found, did not know each other personally but communicated through social media. In Coimbatore, houses of I Jaffer Shaddique Ali in Pudu Nagar, Ashique at Variety Hall Road and Faizal at GM Nagar were searched. At Faizal’s house, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 2.16 lakh was seized along with Islamic literature and letters written in the letter pad of a Muslim outfit.On 2 September, these Muslim youths were arrested along with two others, identified as R Ashik (25) of Coimbatore and S Ismail (25) of Tindivanam in Villupuram district. Based on their confessions, the police arrested Faizal Rahman of GM Nagar, who worked as an auto driver, and Sahul Hameed alias Anwar (23), from Coimbatore. The men are currently lodged at Coimbatore Central Prison.

Home-grown terrorism, non-state players and ISIS recruits: Nowadays, the terrorism has been secularized and differentiated also. “Home-grown terrorism” is talked about, as if “foreign-grown” has been different or less harmful. If a terrorist, whether Indian born or foreign born is identified in the context of J&K, where, it is implied that a terrorist could have been hailing from –

  1. Indian side Kashmir
  2. Pakistan side Kashmir
  3. Pakistan itself.

Hence, the categorization of  “non-state players” and “state players” have been started to be used. Earlier, “State terrorism,” “state sponsored terrorism” and such other expressions were used to stress that terrorism itself is encouraged, promoted and sponsored by a state. Now, after J&K terror activities, 26/11 etc., as ISIS has started recruiting Mohammedan youth from Kerala and other places, perhaps, Indian might be blamed for exporting such youth involving in ISIS. Then UN, USA and other statistical figures given would include – ISIS terrorists –

  1. Recruited from India.
  2. Killed hailing from India.
  3. Brought into ISIS territory through Afghanistan from India.
  4. Intruded into Syria, through Turkey and so on from India.

So just like, Kerala exporting nuns, pastors etc., it has now credibility of exporting Mohammedan youth for ISIS! Really, it is god’s own country, thus its sons and daughters are exported in this way to aboard for holy acts, services and war also.

More Jihadis are arrested in Chennai thowing doubt that Chennai might be  becoming hub of Jihadi terrorists links with ISIS!

More Jihadis are arrested in Chennai thowing doubt that Chennai might be  becoming hub of Jihadi terrorists links with ISIS!

Harron arrested - by Rajasthan ATS 04-07-2017

Haroon Rasheed, son of Mohammed Ali Jinnah arrested on 04-07-2017: Chennai formerly known as Madras has become hub of ISIS terror, as more and more arrests unfortunately, gives such a picture. Ironically, the media has been selective, casual and not so careful in reporting the news and giving factual details about the arrested, their links with locals and aboard and how they have been collaborating and conniving with each other. The media persons always use “suspected”, “sympathizer” and so on without conveying the terrorism, inhuman killings and the most dangerous task carried on by the IS. Rajasthan Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on 04-07-2017 [Tuesday] detained a suspected Islamic State (ISIS) handler from Chennai, reported news agency ANI[1]. The accused, identified as 30-year-old M. Haroon Rasheed [36], is suspected of collecting and sending funds to the terrorist organisation[2]. Haroon Rasheed, son of Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Sarkarai street[3]. He had made three donations to ISIS and he was tracked through those transactions[4]. So he has made just three donations to IS. But, how does he know IS and how he donated money? As a Mohammedan or Muslim, has he donated? He does not have any sympathy for the men, women and children getting killed all over the world through the suicide bombing, bomb blastings and other type of jihadi beheading etc?

Haroon Rasheed came to Chennai in 1987 and is a mobile phone dealer:  “On Monday, he closed his shop at Burma Bazaar around 10.45 pm and went to meet his friends near Muthialpet Post Office. That is when the Rajasthan team picked him up. Rasheed was taken to his home, and an inquiry was held with his family members too,” said an official with the city police requesting anonymity[5]. “During preliminary inquiry, Rasheed said he usually gave money to ‘couriers’ to bring mobile phones from Dubai, including `60,000 recently. But we are looking into the terror angle behind these financial transactions,” said the source in Rajasthan police[6]. Sources in city police intelligence wing said Rasheed was a native of Ramanathapuram district, who had come to Chennai about 30 years ago i.e, in 1987. He was into mobile phone business, including importing them from abroad. Sources said he was the main dealer for a private mobile phone company. Based on Rasheed’s request, his elder brother Imran Khan was allowed to accompany them to Rajasthan.

“The Hindu” way of reporting: The accused was detained from Burma Bazaar area in the city on Tuesday morning following information from two accused, Mohammed Iqbal and Jamil Ahmed, who are already under the custody of ATS[7]. Haroon reportedly runs a mobile phone shop in the area[8]. “The Hindu” reported that[9], “Preliminary inquiries have revealed that the suspect was running a CD shop in Burma Bazaar in Chennai.”, however, it [its special correspondent[10]] started with, “Sleuths of Rajasthan’s Special Operations Group zeroed-in on the hideout of Haroon Rasheed (36) in Mannadi and apprehended him on charges of organising funds and manpower for the banned terror outfit.”! The report states that Haroon is alleged to have transferred funds to the tune of Rs 5 lakh to ISIS fighters abroad and has been taken to Jaipur for further questioning and investigation[11].

Gold smuggling to ISIS recruitment / funding: The ATS had also traced an operative recently in Thiruvallur[12]. It was said that the person in question Jamil Ahmed was a fund raiser for the outfit. There have been reports of several individuals joining the Islamic State in Syria from Tamil Nadu and Telangana. In fact, in Chennai itself, there have been arrests of such handlers. Now, it is believed that nine people, including one from Telangana and eight from Tamil Nadu, had joined ISIS in the year 2016. A senior SOG officer said the arrest had been made based on information they got while questioning Mohammad Iqbal, 32, of Mylapore, who was arrested on February 23 2017. Iqbal had allegedly played a role in transferring funds to ISIS through an agent in Mumbai, identified as Jameel Ahmed. Inquiries with Jameel Ahmed and Mohammad Iqbal revealed that they were part of a gold smuggling racket busted on February 4, 2017[13]. On February 4, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) seized 20 gold bars weighing 3.360kg and Rs 1 crore in cash from four people travelling in an omnibus from Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh to Chennai[14]. The DRI arrested Iqbal (not Mohammad Iqbal who was arrested in Mylapore), Jameel (an associate not linked to the ISIS cash transactions), Jahabuddin and Nizamuddin when the bus reached Arambakkam in Tiruvallur district. The arrests were made based on a tip off from the Intelligence Bureau (IB).

Now, on 04-07-2017 [Tuesday], after arresting Rasheed, the SOG team obtained a transit warrant from a metropolitan magistrate court in Chennai and left for Rajasthan with him. The Special Investigation Division CID of the Tamil Nadu police is also probing the background of the Rasheed and others. The police said there were reports of some people in Tamil Nadu and Telangana joining ISIS. It is believed that nine people, including eight from Tamil Nadu and one from Telangana, joined ISIS in 2016. The police said four college students were in regular contacts with Mohammad Iqbal. The police were keeping a tab on their activities. In April 2017, it was reported that an NIA source told Express that the consignment was sent from Washermanpet in North Chennai to Madurai by a group of youth arrested last August in connection with several low intensity blasts in various parts of South India. The addresses from which the parcels containing the explosives were sent and received belonged to the five youth[15]

  1. N Abbas Ali (27) ,
  2. Mohammed Ayub Ali (25),
  3. M Samsumdeen Karim Raja (23),
  4. S Karwa Samsumdeen (25) and
  5. S Dawood Sulaiman (25).

Of these, four were arrested by NIA in August 2016 in Madurai and Dawood Sulaiman was nabbed in Chennai. NIA suspects they were involved in 15 blasts reported in different parts of the southern states[16].

Chennai becoming hub of Jihadi terrorism: In November 2016 also several Muslim youth were arrested for bombing. Sulaiman, who was working as a systems analyst in a leading IT company’s office on Old Mahabalipuram Road in the city, was arrested afternoon of Nove,ber 28, 2016, soon after he arrived here from his native city of Madurai. The previous night, NIA sleuths had arrested three persons from the temple town of Madurai in the south of the state. Sources said Sulaiman was staying along with his friends in a rented accommodation in Thiruvanmiyur. Official sources said Dawood had gone to Madurai during the weekend and met the other arrested suspects — Abbas Ali, Md. Ayub Ali and Samsum Karim Raja. The three persons were arrested by NIA from the temple town[17]. Sulaiman alone managed to leave the place and later boarded a bus to Chennai on Sunday [27-11-2016] night around 11 pm . “He reached Chennai on Monday [28-11-2016] morning and was nabbed by the NIA sleuths,” a source said[18]. All these incidences cannot be treated as isolated or not connected, as they have been working together with common target of attacking innocent people of India only on the pretext of Jihad, implying that they have been hardened with such hatred of killing. Therefore, Indians have to be careful in identifying, watching and informing the authorities about the movement of this type of  terrorists.
