NIA arrested suspected ISIS operative Shakul Hammed in Chennai!

Shahul Hameed, Chennai arrested by NIA -and Khaja Moideen

Shakul Hameed arrested from Otteri, Chennai on 18-09-2017[1]: It is shocking to note that more radicalized Muslims are arrested from Chennai, when demonstrations, protests and agitations have been going on condemning belief-systems of others, against the killings of Royingyas, demanding self-rule and so on. How the land of Periyar has been accommodating this – has not been discussed so far, for obvious reasons. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested Shakul Hameed, a Chennai resident [(A-3), son of Mohammed Zackariya, resident of House No. 59, S. S. Puram, A-Block, 10th Street, Ottery, Chennai-12] on Monday (18-09-2017), on the charge of propagating the Islamic State ideology and involving in a conspiracy to stage terror attacks in parts of Tamil Nadu[2]. He has been BBA graduate, pursued MBA, but could not complete. Actually, his father gave a complaint that he was missing. However, when he was arrested, his family members cried foul and claimed that he had returned recently after a work-related trip from Dubai. The case was registered suo motu at NIA Police Station, New Delhi, on January 26,2017 under Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC and appropriate sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against nine persons, including Hameed[3].

Who were the nine arrested in January 2017?: In a statement, the NIA accused Shakul Hameed and eight others of hatching a conspiracy to launch attacks to further the activities of the proscribed terrorist organisation[4]. They are –

  1. Haja Fakkrudeen (Cuddalore),
  2. Khaja Moideen (Cuddalore),
  3. Shakul Hameed (Chennai),
  4. Ansar Meeran (Chennai),
  5. Masood Asarudeen (Tirunelveli),
  6. Sadiq Basha (Nagapattinam),
  7. Mohammad Sayed Abu Thahir (Karur) and
  8. Mohammed Thabraze (Chennai).
  9. Nouman Jaleel is from Telangana.

A case was registered suo motu under section 120B of the IPC, besides sections 17, 18, 18-B, 20, 38, 39 and 40 of the UA (P) Act against the nine accused at the NIA police station in Delhi on January 26, 2017[5].

Shakul Hameed collaborated with Khaja Moideen and Haja Fakkurudeen:  “The accused people and their associates, with the intention of furthering the activities of the proscribed terrorist organisation Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)/Daesh, had hatched a criminal conspiracy from 2013 onwards and formed a terrorist gang which had raised and received funds, organised meetings, recruited and facilitated the travel of some persons to Syria to join the ISIS/ Daesh,” the statement said[6]. Investigation had revealed that main accused Haja Fakkurudeen, a Singaporean citizen of Indian origin and a native of the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu, joined the IS in Syria in January, 2014, along with his family, the NIA said[7]. With families, they are joining, means, that they are taken care of monetarily, besides, brainwashing to fight on the battlefield. The terror-training is done with domestic approval, family co-operation and breeding violence in all aspects. He visited India twice between November, 2013 and January, 2014, and held conspiracy meetings along with co-accused Khaja Moideen, Shakul Hameed and others at various places in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka with the intention of recruiting more people into the IS, it said[8]. All these meetings could not have been held without involving the logistics of others. In other words, more Muslims have been involved I such activities that the arrested ones. In pursuance of the conspiracy, Shakul Hameed attempted to migrate to the IS-controlled territory in Syria in August, 2015 through Turkey, but was intercepted by the Turkish authorities and deported to India[9]. He would be produced before the NIA special court in Chennai, the statement said[10]. On September 15, Khaja Moideen alias Abdullah Muthalif, son of Chinna Thambi Ambalam of Cuddalore district, was remanded in the case by the Chennai NIA special court[11].

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[12]. The accused, identified as 30-year-old M. Haroon Rasheed [36], is suspected of collecting and sending funds to the terrorist organisation[13]. Haroon Rasheed, son of Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Sarkarai street[14]. He had made three donations to ISIS and he was tracked through those transactions[15]. 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?

Swalih was settled in Chennai for some time now with wife and 2-year-old son.

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 November 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[16]. 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[17]. 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.

kadayanallur-subahani-haja-moideen-bomb-making

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.

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.
