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.

Now Tamilnadu Radicals recruit, export and receive back ISIS terror for home-grown terror (1)!

IS-inspired terror module busted, six held in Kerala[1]: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday 02-10-2016 arrested six members of a fresh terror module, allegedly inspired by the Islamic State (IS), a senior NIA official said. Five suspects were arrested when they assembled on a hilltop at Kanakamala in Kannur district of Kerala to plan their next move, said the NIA official. The other accused was arrested from Kuttiyadi in Kozhikode district. The six terror suspects are in the age group of 24-30 years and one of them is from Tamil Nadu. This again proves that Kerala has been breeding ground for terrorism with support from the locals and as well as relatives. It is intriguing as to how the parents have been keeping quite, obviously, knowing that their sons and daughters were doing something wrong, criminal and against the law of this land. The Central government directed the NIA to investigate the said conspiracy and a case under the antiterror Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act was registered. The accused have been identified as[2]

  1. Manseed alias Omar Al Hindi (30),
  2. Abu Basheer (29) from Coimbatore,
  3. Swalih Mohammed T. (26),
  4. Safwan P (30),
  5. Jasim N.K. (25) and
  6. Ramshad (24).

That youngsters with BEs, B.Techs, IT degrees and all have been engaged in terror modules only prove that they have been involving themselves willingly.

mosques-dargahs-and-madrassas-should-teach-against-terrorism-to-create-awareness-among-the-muslim-younthWhy radicalization has been so easy in Islam: The ring leader, Manseed alias Omar al Hindi (30), from Qatar four days back was the trigger for the arrests though the group was on the radar for four months now[3]. The accused, who were radicalised online, had formed a group called ”Ansar-ul-Khilafah Kerala” (soldiers of the Caliphate as propagated by IS) on Telegram — a web-based application platform, a senior Home Ministry official told The Hindu[4]. That is, a Muslim youth in the social media is attracted or attracting others to radical Islam proves his pre-determined mentality. In facebook, twitter, whatsup etc., it can easily be noted that 98% Muslims have been behaving only in this manner. They force non-Muslims with their perverted, dogmatic and fundamentalist Islamic ideas turning to jihadi type and ultimately to terrorism. All this type of activities are not possible without the moral, logistic and financial supports from parents, friends and the vested groups who have been working against the interests of this country.

tamilnadu-jihad-hi-tech-jihad-with-isisYoungsters with BEs, B.Techs, IT degrees and all have been engaged in terror modules: One of the accused, Jasim N.K. (24) — an engineer and the only one with an active Facebook account — was following Islamic preacher Zakir Naik and posted several messages against killings in Syria by the Assad regime and also about children and women killed in Palestine. His social media account also said that he was a keen follower of football and cricket and he last posted a message on May 3. The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which made the arrests on Sunday, said the accused were inspired by the IS and had assembled on a hilltop at Kannur in Kerala to plan blasts and attacks against key politicians in Kerala and Tamil Nadu when they were apprehended. However, no explosives were found on them, said the official. “We had been tracking the group for few months and then Manseed reached Kerala from Qatar four days back. We decided to keep them under watch but then they assembled at a hilltop in Kannur, we suspected that they might carry out some attack immediately, so they were apprehended,” a senior NIA official said. Manseed, a resident of Kannur, is married and was working in Qatar for the past few years. Another accused, Abu Basheer (29) alias Rasheed is a mechanic. The third accused, Swalih Mohammed T. (26), works at Club Mahindra in Chennai, and the fourth, Safwan P. (30), works as a designer for a newspaper. The other two suspects, Jasim N.K. (25) and Ramshad (24), are cousins. Ramshad worked as an accountant. “We are going through their social media accounts and have confiscated their phones and other electronic devices. They were radicalised online gradually and were brought together by Manseed,” said the official. The NIA was investigating whether Manseed was getting directions from someone else to carry out attacks here.

is-jihadi-from-tirunelveli-indian-expressTamilnadu youth arrested on 02-10-2016 Sunday in connection with terrorism: Following the detention of six persons from Kerala by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) allegedly linked to the Islamic State organisation on Sunday 02-10-2016, the investigative agency on Monday 03-10-2016 detained another person Subahani Haja Moideen, belonging to Kerala in Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu[5]. The detention comes following the interrogation of the six who were arrested earlier[6]. The NIA had earlier on Sunday said,”Information was received that some youths from Kerala and Tamil Nadu along with their accomplices have entered into a criminal conspiracy to commit terror acts by collecting explosives and other offensive material to target important persons and places in various parts of south India.” This again proves the links among the radical groups working in Kerala, Tamilnadu and Karnataka, particularly in Southern side with hilly and forest areas.

subahani-haja-moideen-arrrested-on-05-10-2016-no-remorse-or-guiltSubahani Haja Moideen also known as Abu Meer, a resident of Tirunelveli working for IS – arrrested on 05-10-2016: The NIA has arrested a suspected ISIS operative, who had conspired to carry out terror activities in the country and was planning to collect chemical explosives from cracker manufacturers in Tamil Nadu[7]. Earlier, it was reported in detail as to how Batkal brothers and others were collecting chemicals, Potassium Nitrate, Ammonium Nitrate, etc., and manufacturing bombs, planting them and exploding killing hundreds and injuring thousands of innocent people. Therefore, the Tamilnadu IS handlers have also started such strategy is revealed through his activities. The accused identified as Subahani Haja Moideen, also known as Abu Meer, a resident of Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, was arrested by the NIA on Wednesday 05-10-2016 in connection with a case related to activities of the banned ISIS in India[8]. He worked with the IS between April and September, 2015, and is being described by the agencies as the closest any In dian recruit has come to seeing the action in West Asia[9].

gone-for-hajj-returned-as-isis-terroristGone for Hajj in March 2015 to returned as IS terrorist in October 2016: The accused was radicalised and recruited in ISIS through social media platforms. He had left India for Istanbul from Chennai last year March 2015 on the pretext of performing ‘Umrah’, the NIA said in a statement on Thursday 06-10-2016. It is not known as to whether he got any financial grant from the government in this regard. After reaching Istanbul, he crossed over along with other people who hailed from Pakistan and Afghanistan to Iraqi territory under control of ISIS. Thus, Istanbul has been basis for the terror recruitment, assembly and distribution as planned by the ISIS. This proves the local logistic support to ISIS from Istanbul. From there, he was taken to Mosul where he underwent detailed ‘religious training’ followed by combat training, which included a course in automated weapons before being deputed to fight war for almost two weeks. During the war, he told interrogators that he was paid $100 per month as an allowance by ISIS besides accommodation and food. However, he told interrogators that he could not withstand the violence and war misery in Mosul and decided to leave especially after he saw two of his friends getting charred. He was jailed for 40 days by ISIS and tortured. Again he was produced before a Islamic judge who sent him to Syria. Considering the seriousness of his knee injury, an IS “court” let him leave. The circumstances of his departure are likely to be closely probed, though[10]. He claimed that he was allowed to cross over to Turkey from where he contacted his family with the help of the Indian consulate at Istanbul.
