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].

Haroon Rashid arrested - DM 05_07_2017_003_006

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.

How Tamilnadu Radicals recruit, export and receive back ISIS terror for home-grown terror (2)

October 9, 2016

Islamic radicalization, Jihadi fundamentalism and ISIS terrorism cannot be encouraged by any apologia, justification and secularization of terror [How Tamilnadu Radicals recruit, export and receive back ISIS terror for home-grown terror (2)!

consulate-general-of-india-istanbul

Subahani Haja Moideen returned to India with the help of Indian consulate at Istanbul[1]: It is evident that the Consulate has been seized of this matter, though nothing is mentioned about the terror activities in the official website. About visa, fake websites etc., the following details have been mentioned. Obviously, they are run by the ISIS agents. “All visa applicants intending to travel to India are alerted that fake visa websites such as –

  1. e-touristvisaindia.com,
  2. indianvisaonline.org.in,
  3. e-visaindia.com, etc.

are operating with the intention of cheating Indian visa seekers by giving erroneous information and misguiding applicants resulting in wastage of time and in many cases financial loss. In order to mislead applicants, some of these websites have created images and home page templates mimicking the official Government of India website. All visa seekers should note that the correct website for filling online visa / e-visa applications is https://indianvisaonline.gov.in. Visa applicants are also advised not to deal with other websites that do not belong to the Government of India.Visa applicants in the consular jurisdiction of Consulate General of India, Istanbul may seek information on visa procedure either by visiting the official website of the Consulate General of India, Istanbul: http://www.cgiistanbul.org or by sending an email to cpv@cgiistanbul.org[2]. Subahani Haja Moideen returned only through the help of the consulate. But, the returning has been genuine or fake or as a part of terrir activities to be continued in India after training etc., have to be analyzed carefully. Therefore, how the IS-terrorist could return easuly to India is intriguing.

kadayanallur-isis-sivakasi-link

T.N. terror suspect was shopping for explosives in Sivakasi: NIA[3]: “The Hindu” gives such caption, as if it is meant for amusment. Subahani Haja Moideen arrived in Mumbai after a gap of six months in September last year 2015 on an emergency certificate and returned to his ancestral place where he was staying with his wife and managed to get a job at a jewellery shop at Kadayanallur. That he could be accommodated immedyately in spite of his ISIS-terror background proves the well-supported logistics working in Tamilnadu and elsewhere. Whether the Consulate informed Government of India that such type of person is returning, wjether the local police station is aware of the fact or is he monitored by anybody etc., are totally unknown. The Hindu also simply reported that, “However, once back and settled, he again got in touch with ISIS handlers over Internet and was planning to collect explosives and precursor chemicals from Sivakasi at their instance.” He had travelled to Chennai, Coimbatore and other places to meet other local contacts in the conspiracy, collect money and procure explosives for terrorist acts as guided and motivated by ISIS handlers,” the NIA said[4]. How then, he has been given money immediately and who gave? This also proves the terror-money track existing in these states to help the terrorists going out and coming inside India.

Tirunelveli drama with Subahani Haja Moideen (07-10-2016): Suspected Islamic State recruit H. Subahani of Kadayanallur, who was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) officers from Kadayanallur last Monday (03-10-2016), was brought to the town in western Tirunelveli again on Friday (07-10-2016) for conducting a search at his house and the jewellery shop in which he was working[5]. The NIA team led by Superintendent of Police Shaukath Ali that brought Subahani to Kadayanallur in the early hours of Friday kept him at the Courtallam police station and then brought him to Kadayanallur around 10 a.m. After checking the rented house on Khaja Mohideen Mosque Street where he was living, the NIA team also searched for evidence in the nearby jewellery showroom where the suspected IS recruit was working. The team questioned the owner and other workers of the showroom in the presence of revenue officials[6]. “The NIA officers took a mobile phone, four SIM cards and a hard disk from the house of Subahani,” a close relative of the detenue said. When asked about the purpose of the check, Mr. Shaukath Ali declined to answer. As the search and questioning came to an end, the NIA team took Subahani to the Kadayanallur police station for interrogation and left for Kochi in the evening.

Four persons known to Subahani Haja Moideen arrested and let off (07-10-2016): Four persons with suspected links to Islamic State (IS) have been picked up by NIA and are being questioned to probe their alleged association with another suspect arrested from Kannur in Kerala[7]. They were picked up by NIA on Friday night (07-10-2016) after their names were found in the contact list of Abu Basheer, one of the six arrested from Kannur recently, police said. Basheer, hailing from Tamil Nadu, was among the six held for being part of an ISIS inspired module who allegedly conspired to carry out terrorist acts. NIA has so far questioned 11 persons from the city, who were in the Facebook and telephone contact list of Basheer and seized laptops, mobile phones and some electronic gadgets from them. All of them were later let off. The four are residents of G M Nagar area in Ukkadam, where Basheer also stayed some time back and offered “lucrative jobs” abroad to many youths, police said[8].

gimmick-way-of-opposing-terroism-19-09-2016

The apologia of Muslims instead of condemning Jihadi terrorism: The recent arrest of Subahani Haja Moideen from Kadayanallur for suspected links with the Islamic State (IS) has raised concerns in the Muslim community about radicalisation of some Muslim youth[9]. Speaking about how such actions of a few could be used by Hindu right-wing forces to tarnish the image of an entire community, Kader Mohideen, state president, Indian Union Muslim League, said the party has opposed violent ideology wherever necessary. “The IUML has always campaigned against extremism and terrorism, weaning the Muslim youth away from such thinking. Still, some Muslim youth are swayed by their propaganda. The youth must not fall prey to it,” he said. The problem arose mostly due to the fact that many South Indian Muslim youth got most of their religious education in the Middle East. “In South India, most of us follow Islam which is closer to Sufism. The problem today is that the Muslim youth start learning radical ideologies in an extremely religious environment,” he said. Documentary filmmaker Kombai S. Anwar, who made Yaadhum tracing the roots of Tamil Muslims, said the community was paying the price for allowing its leaders to prey on the insecurities of the Muslim youth. He said the latest incident was a wake up call for Salafist and Wahabi outfits that preached a narrow interpretation of the holy text[10]. Condemning the IS as ‘unislamic’, Prof M.H. Jawahirullah, president, Manithaneya Makkal Katchi, said he was sure a majority of Tamil Muslim youth were not lured by the its propaganda. ”There is no political leader or a religious scholar in Tamil Nadu, who has supported the IS,” he said.

is-jihadi-from-tirunelveli-dinamani-cutting

Islamic or Unislamic, terror or non-terror arguments would not help Muslims or humanity: This type of response only proves the secularization of terrorism that is not correct in any context. As for as the Muslim youth are concerned, it is happening again and again. The ISIS recruitment has been well organized and the Muslims themselves helping directly and indirectly in every aspect. It is not the question of which “ism” of Islam is bad or good, terror or not terror etc., as all such “isms” are in one way or the other, ultimately, teaches “jihad” and it is the teaching of ISIS, Taliban, Jaish and other terror groups working in Kashmir also. As the following facts are known, they should be tackled immediately:

kadayanallur-isis-sivakasi-link-subahani-haja-moideen

  1. Educated Muslim youth, in spite of modernization, has been drifted towards ISIS terrorism (and other local categories also). Radicalization starts from home. Mosques, schools and colleges.

  1. Under the guise of getting a job aboard, they are recruited by ISIS and started working for them.

  1. The cellphone, social media, internet facilities are extensively used for such activities.

  1. Passport, Visa, money-exchange and other activities are also done, monitored and taken care of by themselves.

  1. They work knowingly or unknowingly (only for a short period), as they get good “salaries”, families are “taken care of” and other attractive benefits.

  1. In the war front, as they get everything, they are ready to become “shahid”!

  1. The retuned, escaped and other categories are to be suspected, as they could come here and work as spies, handlers etc.

  1. That they are immediately accommodated proves that their activities are known or they have been advised to do so with obligation.

  1. That they easily come and go etc., proves the direct and indirect help of the local, state and other authorities.

  1. International agencies, movements and organizations help directly and indirectly, for their logistics.
