Terror struck the national capital this evening leaving at least eighteen people killed and over 90 injured in six near simultaneous blasts in a span of 17 minutes in three crowded market places.

Indian Mujahideen, shadow amalgam of banned SIMI and Lashker-e-Taiba, claimed responsibility for the serial blasts through an email sent to news organisations at almost same time when the blasts took place.

The first explosion rocked Gaffar market area of Karol Bagh in Central Delhi at 6.15 PM. The explosive was kept near a Maruti car. The impact of the blast was so severe that an auto was thrown up several feet.

This was followed by three blasts in Connaught Place area and two in Greater Kailash in South Delhi.

An unexploded explosive device was found at India Gate.

In Barakhamba Road, one of the bombs was suspected to be placed near Nirmal tower. The second blast in the CP took place near Gopal Das Bhavan. Both the buildings house private offices and banks. The third blast took place in central park.

In the GK-I blast, more than a dozen people were injured and ten shops were damaged in the explosion that took place at around 6:40 pm. The bombs were hidden in a dust bin.

Prelimnary examination of the blast site said that low intensity ammonium nitrate tied to integrated circuit had been used in almost all the serial blasts in the nation Capital.

Two persons have been detained by the police for questioning.

Last night as per his job,das visited the site of "gaffar Market"

It was in the opposite side of the market in the area inhabited by people with lower income gruop.So most people killed were poors and residents.

There is SIMI ie Student Islamic movement of India,which wants to bring an Islamic rule to all over India(including Punjab).As per them tax for Muslims should be Jakat and for non Muslims it has to be ziziya(They say that both Muslims and non Muslims pay tax and names are differnt and no oppresion as per thier interpetation of Islam).

Das also longs for thr Sikh rule in India but off course not by such hypocracy ie killing people from other faiths even before the rule has come.Allah will damn such guys.Akal Bless.

The email message contains the address “Al Arabi”, pointing to a link with the Arabs of Al Qaeda who are today headquartered somewhere in Pakistan or Afghanistan. Although the “Indian Mujahideen” are seen by some as a hardline splinter group of the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), or a bunch of SIMI activists who have managed to evade arrest and have become more radicalised, important quarters in India will soon point fingers at Pakistan. The “Indian Mujahideen” email also contains a reference which some Indian newspapers find “mysterious”. The email claims that the latest blasts were plotted “to salute the memory of two of its inspirational martyrs, Sayyed Ahmed and Shah Ismail”. The reference is to Sayyed Ahmad Shaheed of Rai Bareilly and his disciple Shah Ismail, a scion of the family of the great Muslim thinker, Shah Waliullah of Delhi. Sayyed Ahmad Shaheed and Shah Ismail waged a jihad against the Sikh empire in 1830 and were both martyred in Balakot in the Hazara division of the NWFP. These two great martyrs are today the inspiration behind the jihad pursued by the Pashtun warriors of Pakistan “against the Americans”. In the past, the training camps of the jihadi organisations were located near the tombs of Sayyed Ahmad Shaheed and Shah Ismail.

Another look at the blasts

1. Partition was not demanded by TSP muslims but rather by UP muslims
In the 1946 elections anti-Jinnah muslims won 60% of the vote in NWFP, 25% in Pakjab and 30% in Sindh
2. Much of the partition rioting was done by IMs in residual India
and the rioters mostly stayed back
3. In the Nizams kingdom, virtually every able bodied muslim male joined the razakars
4. Aligarh univ, both pre and post partition has been a rabidly islamist univ
5. Both pre and post partition, muslim ghettos have been no-go zones
6. Islamism was temperorily put on hold thanks to sikh reprisals and the fear it induced in IMs
7. As the fear in IMs in item 6 has evaporated thanks to vote bank politics, they are back to their old ways in trying to carve out another Pakistan
8. Thanks to gandhist and nehruvian secular whitewash, the hindu public is unaware of items 1-7
9. 1 day of direct action in 1946 kolkata killed 5000 hindus, equal to a 100 blasts
meaning giving in to the terror of the blasts will simply cause more violence
10. Active policing, not riots, is the best way to ensure success against islamists

More Questions Than Answers
Why does the IM talk of only three e-mail messages, when the media had received five e-mails, all purporting to be from the IM? What accounts for the other discrepancies?

B. Raman

The group calling itself the Indian Mujahideen (IM) has so far sent five e-mail messages to sections of the media since it made its appearance in November last year. The first message was sent a few minutes before the serial blasts in three towns of Uttar Pradesh in November last year. The second was sent after the blasts in Jaipur in May,2008. The third was sent before the blasts in Ahmedabad on July 26, 2008. The fourth was sent after the press conference held by the Gujarat Police in August, 2008, in which they claimed to have solved the case relating to the Ahmedabad and Jaipur blasts, identified the perpetrators and arrested many of them. According to the Gujarat police version, it was the Students' Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), which is now operating as the IM. The fifth message was sent before the blasts in New Delhi on September 13, 2008.

The first, second, third and fifth messages claimed responsibility for the blasts and the fourth debunked the claims of the Gujarat Police of having solved the case and tried to convey the impression that the arrested persons had nothing to do with the blasts. Surprisingly, the IM has not sent any e-mail messages claiming responsibility for the serial blasts in Bangalore on July 25, 2008.

Intriguingly, the IM describes its latest e-mail warning of the New Delhi blasts as "our third consecutive e-mail". It says:

"The INDIAN MUJAHIDEEN accepts the sole responsibility of Delhi serial blasts, and we claim this, through our third consecutive email, which is, unfortunately, still a mystery for you. It is very sad to see the bad condition of your cyber forensics who have still failed to find out our technique of sending the "Message of Death"."

Why does the IM talk of only three e-mail messages, when the media had received five e-mails, all purporting to be from the IM?

A careful study of all the e-mail messages purported to have been sent in the name of the IM indicates the following:

While the first two e-mail messages were virulent in their content, they were not obnoxiously abusive in their language. The last three messages were not only virulent in their content, but also obnoxious in their language. I had pointed out in my earlier paper cited above that in the message about the Ahmedabad blasts, they had used the word bastard which normally Al Qaeda and pro-Al Qaeda organisations are never known to use. The latest message on the New Delhi blasts are even more abusive than the previous two messages regarding the blasts in Ahmedabad. P.C.Pandey, the DG of Police of Gujarat, has been abused as a rascal, a bastard, a corrupt old hag, a base-born criminal and a filthy loyal dog of Narendra Modi. These are typical of the Mafia underworld of Mumbai and Gujarat.

The Gujarat Police and the Rajasthan Police and their Police chiefs have been severely condemned in the latest and a specific threat of terrorist attack has also been held out against A.K.Jain of the Rajasthan Police. But, significantly, there is no criticism of the Karnataka Police and its chief. There is not even a reference to the investigation by the Bangalore Police, whereas the investigations by the Ahmedabad and Jaipur police have been debunked and their claims of having solved the cases have been questioned.

Similarly, there is no reference to the UP Police investigation of the blasts of November last.

The language used in the third and fourth messages about the Ahmedabad blasts and the fifth message about the New Delhi blasts, which are very abusive, differ from the language used in the first message about the UP blasts and the second about the Jaipur blasts.
Why such discrepancies? It is important to find answers to them before we come to definitive conclusions about the IM. Just as the proof of the pudding is in the eating, the proof of the terrorist is in the catching. Unless and until we are able to identify and neutralise or arrest the right persons, who are the brains behind the IM, we will have more surprises. We have arrested many perpetrators of individual blasts, but I am not sure we have arrested the brains. By thinking and prematurely projecting that we have identified and arrested the brains, we will make ourselves liable for more surprises, which could damage the credibility of the police in the eyes of the public.

In the latest message, the state governments of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have been criticised for their alleged harassment of the Muslims, but the main brunt of the criticism has been on Maharashtra and the Mumbai Police. Having attacked the national capital in New Delhi, they could next target the economic capital in Mumbai.

From these messages, it is apparent that the IM does not as yet have a strategic objective such as the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate or the "liberation" of the Muslims of India. Its objective till now is purely tactical to wreak vengeance on the Hindutva organisations and the various state governments accused of harassing the Muslims.

New Delhi seems to have been targeted not only to exhibit their capability for action in the capital, but also to wreak vengeance on the government of India for its failure to prevent the demolition of the Babri Masjid in December,1992. The message says:

"Babri Masjid was and will remain to be our glorious self esteem and Inshallah, we will prove it to you a hornet’s nest in which you have immersed your bare hand, unaware of the pain to come. If you are prepared to suffer the results of this issue,then by the will of Allah, verily! We will make you face it, and if you feel you are wise enough, then here we announce our ultimatum:Vacate the land of Babri as soon as you can."
