terrorist violence in Dhaka involving radical Islamists is alarming. Political conspiracies, upheavals in Bangladesh and regular infiltration into our border states pose serious security problems.
Anti Indian regimes of Bangladesh some years ago, before Sheikh Hasina came back to power organized anti India tirade and encouraged fundamentalists.
Several insurgent and separatist groups from NE were allowed to establish safe sanctuaries in BANGLADESH. The then PM of BANGLADESH M/s Khaleda Zia and chiefs of national level intelligence agencies - DFI and NSI established close links with ISI of Pakistan.
A comprehensive plan for a second partition of India was first developed by the Mughalstan Research Institute (MRI) of Jahangir Nagar University (Bangladesh) under the patronage of the two intelligence agencies, Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and Bangladesh’s Director General of Forces Intelligence.
The “Mughalistan Reaserch Institute of Bangladesh” (MRI) had released a map where a Muslim corridor named “Mughalistan” connects Pakistan and Bangladesh via India. After facing humiliating defeat in 1971 war Pakistan vowed to “give India thousand cuts to bleed”. BANGLADESH and Pak intelligence organizations jointly drew plans of second partition of India.
The Pakistani Punjabi-dominated ISI’s influence on MRI is evident even in the Punjabi-centric pronunciation of the word ‘Mughalstan’ (without the “i”), instead of the typical Urdu pronunciation (Mughalistan). Islamic Jihadis in India have been well-armed and well-funded by the neighbouring Islamic regimes, as part of Operation Topac – the late Pakistani President Zia-ul-Haq’s grandiose plot to balkanize India.
Incidentally Osama Bin Laden had thrown his support behind the concept and creation of this Greater Pakistan to “liberate” the Muslims of India from the Hindus. The Mumbai underworld (led by Karachi-based don Dawood Ibrahim who executed the gruesome 1993 Mumbai bombings), Jamaat-e-Islami, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen declared their unified support for creating this undivided Islamic nation in the Indian subcontinent. The Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and Indian Mujahideen were working in tandem with the aforementioned organizations to wage Jihad against the Hindus of India.
It is important to note that in its “holy war” against India, the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba openly declared Hindus to be the “enemies of Islam” who should all be converted or killed. The Lashkar-e-Tayyaba group has repeatedly claimed through its journals and websites that its main aim is to destroy the Indian republic and to annihilate Hinduism. Jaish-e-Mohammed has vowed to “liberate” not just Kashmir, but also to hoist the Islamic flag atop the historic Red Fort after capturing New Delhi and the rest of India.
SIMI championed the “liberation of India through Islam” and aimed to restore the supremacy of Islam through the resurrection of the Khilafat (Islamic Caliphate), emphasis on the Muslim Ummah (Islamic) and the waging of Jihad on the Indian state, secularism, democracy and nationalism – the basic keystones of the Indian Constitution – as these concepts are antithetical to Islam.
The Indian Mujahideen have sent several emails claiming responsibility for several bombings in Lucknow, Varanasi and Faizabad (UP), Bangalore, Jaipur, Ahmedabad and New Delhi in 2007 and 2008. The emails refer to notorious conquerors of India (Mohammed bin Qasim, Mohammad Ghauri and Mahmud Ghaznawi) as their role-models, refer to Hindu blood as “blood to be the cheapest of all mankind” and taunt Hindus that their “[Hindu] history is full of subjugation, humiliation, and insult [at the hands of Islamic conquerors].”
The above mentioned conspirators also created fear psychosis among the border population of BANGLADESH through false propaganda that India would grab BANGLADESH and that they should be prepared to fight as fifth columnists if Indian forces ran over Bangladesh territory. Bangladesh therefore trained criminals to infiltrate in large number to settle in India.
Later a letter was circulated asking people to produce as many children as they could to rule India by power of vote. Minority population of W Bengal and N Eastern states has witnessed alarming increase in border districts.
Many Muslims of Lal Gola a border town of district Murshidbad (WB) and Dhubri and Mankachar of Assam have as many children as 30 to 35 from single father. Political leadership of the states was rather happy with their growing vote bank.
Mean while the Home Ministers of India and BANGLADESH on 28 July 2016 discussed roadmap to combat terror outfits. India has promised full support to BANGLADESH in its fight against “terrorism, fundamentalism and radicalism.” The meeting held just after Bangladesh security forces killed nine alleged militants in a raid on their Kalyanpur hideout on 26th July 2016 in Dhaka .
The photos show militants in groups posing inside a house with an IS flag in the background. Investigators suspect that the background of the pictures is the same as of the pictures of Gulshan attackers, which they had sent to the Islamic State's Amaq News Agency and was released by the agency during the attack on the Holey Artisan Bakery on July 1, 2016.
It is relevant to recall the incident of 1 April 2004. BANGLADESH police and Coast , seized sophisticated firearms; 27,020 grenades; 840 rocket launchers, 300 rockets, 2,000 grenade launching tubes; 6,392 magazines; and 11,40,520 rounds of assorted ammunition .Reports from BANGLADESH media indicated that the consignment was intended for insurgents of NE and the radical religious outfits of BANGLADESH.
Paresh Baruah, military wing chief ULFA was then living in Dhaka, with his team. There he held regular meetings with ISI operatives, Pak High Commission officials and Tarique Rahman son of Khaleda Zia the then PM of BANGLADESH.
The arms seizure took place during the rule of Bangladesh Nationalist Party led by Khaleda Zia and its Four-Party alliance including radical and fundamentalist religious parties. In early 2007caretaker government filed corruption charges against more than 160 politicians, civil servants and businessmen from BANGLADESH.
The name of Khaleda Zia’s son was in limelight for his involvement in smuggling of arms, ammunition and money laundering. In 2013, a Dhaka court acquitted Rahman, of charges that he and his friend, Giasuddin Al Mamun siphoned off 204 million taka to Singapore.
However, on 21 July 16, Dhaka High Court sentenced him to seven years in jail, scrapping acquittal by a lower court three years ago. He was also fined 200 million taka. He lives in exile in England.
The total number of accused charged were 50 in the smuggling case and 52 in the arms case. Political leaders charged included Motiur Rahman Nizami, former Industries Minister under the BNP government; and Lutfozzaman Babar, former State Minister for Home Affairs.
Major General Haider Chowdhury, former Director General for National Security Intelligence, Major General Rezzakul Haider Chowdhury Director General of Directorate General of Forces Intelligence, former Brigadier General ABangladeshur Rahim Director General of National Security Intelligence, former Additional Secretary to the Industries Ministry, Nurul Amin; former NSI director: Wing Commander Shahabuddin Ahmed were also among them.
Bangladesh is considered a key 'transit route' for trafficking and smuggling of weapons in South Asia. All the points of entry i.e., air, land, and sea routes are used for trafficking and smuggling and it is alleged that the Bangladesh-India land routes were used extensively for the business.
Large scale inflow of arms and ammunition was part of deep conspiracy hatched by Pakistan and BANGLADESH political leadership and chiefs of National security intelligence and Forces intelligence.
Planned migration and infiltration of BANGLADESH nationals into India’s border areas continues. In 1971 people from East Bengal came in millions. The population of such immigrants is estimated at well over four to five hundred million.
They have acquired ration cards, voter cards, Aadhar cards and proof of Indian Identity, thanks to wisdom of our political leadership who help them. They occupied countless small stretches of land along highways and roads, established madarsas and mosques, captured river transport system, coal ferrying across rivers and thus literally took over local transport system. Hard core criminal gangs frequently commit heinous crimes in urban areas.
The enemies of secular democratic India are preparing for Jihad and rule India by power of vote.
