They should scan Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore for rest of 14. Why I think they should monitor Chennai also?

<b>Sole terrorist survivor reveals, he was being trained in Pak</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->The Mumbai terror attacks have been in the works for at least a year. The interrogation report on Ajmal alias Abu Mujahid, who the media have been referring to as Ajmal Amir Kasab, reveals that he underwent 21 days of physical training and Darsh-e-Quran (Quran recital) at a <b>Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) camp at Muridke in Punjab in Pakistan </b>last year. This training programme was called Daura-e-Shufa (era of simplicity).

The courses were very intensive and gruelling and not all recruits made the cut. Ajmal did, and was then sent to another LeT camp in the Cherapadi Pahadi region of Muzzaffarabad in PoK in June-July this year. “<b>He does not remember the date, but recalls that he was in training, along with 24 others, when Benazir Bhutto was assassinated,” </b>the interrogation report states. Bhutto was assassinated on December 27, 2007. This timeline is corroborated by the confessions of Fahim Ahmed Ansari, who was arrested, along with four others, by the UP Special Task Force in February this year.

Following this, after a gap of one or two days, Ajmal, the only terrorist captured alive by the police, was sent to <b>Manzera in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) for another 21-day training programme called Markaz-e-Taiyyaba (centre of pure). He was taught how to use automatic rifles, including AK-47s and M-16s, and pistols. On completing his arms training, he had to undergo two months of Khidmat (service) training — as a cook in the camp kitchen</b>.

The courses were very intensive and gruelling and not all recruits made the cut. Ajmal did, and <b>was then sent to another LeT camp in the Cherapadi Pahadi region of Muzzaffarabad in PoK in June-July this year.</b>

For the next two-and-a-half months, he received advanced training from ustads (teachers) in <b>firing AK-47s, rocket launchers and mortars and was also taught how to use GPS systems and marine compasses</b>. The camp commander was a terrorist called Saif-ur-Rahman, alias Chachu (who his fellow terrorist Ismail was trying to call when they were cornered in Mumbai). Ajmal was also trained by terrorists who had returned from Jammu & Kashmir. This bunch of battle-hardened desperados were highly respected by members of the camp and called “Gazi”.

Apart from arms training, Ajmal and the other “students” <b>were also taught how to withstand intensive interrogation and mislead interrogators</b>. The methods were primitive and brutal — they were thrashed for several days during training to prepare them for “hostile interrogations”. Having “qualified”, Ajmal and his cohorts were taught to operate maritime vessels.

His handlers now considered him a finished product. He proceeded to Azizabad in Karachi where he and nine others were briefed about their deadly mission. The group of 10 started in a medium-sized boat from an isolated creek in Azizabad on November 23. Three or four nautical miles into the sea, <b>they boarded Al Hussaini, a larger, sea-faring vessel. They were given a bag each, which contained eight grenades, one TT pistol with one or two magazines, an AK-47 with three double magazines, a gas lighter, a dry fruit packet weighing 500 gm, loose ammunition, one mobile phone with an Indian SIM card and a walkie-talkie. Each of them was also given fake ID cards.</b>

By 12.30-1.00 pm, they were within reach of Mumbai, but the instructions were to launch the operations only after nightfall. So, they slowed down and waited for the sun to set. At 6.30 pm, the group of 10 boarded a rubber speedboat, fitted  with a new Yamaha engine and came ashore in India’s financial capital at 8.30 pm.

From someone I talked to in Mumbai, during IPL T20 matches of Summer over 40% who came over from across the border to watch matches haven't gone back. It's our local nitwits like Mahesh Bhatt, Rahul Bose who's peddle their 'cultural-cross-connection' for personal profit that's needs to be highlighted.

Another person I talked to on the subject of bootlegged/pirated CDs/DVDs from Bollywood begin sold across globe, he told me that he doesn't care for this film industry types or their croc tears since it's them who make boatloads of cash from all that Dawood funded <i>do number ka cash paisa</i>. Never thought about in that manner, but something to ponder going ahead.

TT Pistol's
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Police in Pakistan still commonly use TT pistol as a sidearm </b>though unofficial as it is being replaced by modern 9 mm Beretta and Glock pistols. Both legal and illegal TT pistols<b> are still manufactured in various Khyber Pass factories</b>. 7.62x25mm ammo is also rather inexpensive and locally produced or imported from China, made by Norinco.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

I think India intelliegence agency and Maha Police is just feeding media to regain credibility. They are clueless.
By the way, UPA is waiting for 8Dec result and they think by end of year people will forget whole incidence and within 2 weeks UPA will reduce Oil rate that will bring cheers.
This is actual thinking of UPA brains.

<b>Can UPA tackle jihadi mentality?</b>
By Balbir K. Punj

THE ENORMITY of last week’s incidents in Mumbai, and the earlier bombings in several Indian cities, have exposed the ability of terror merchants to strike at civilian targets across the country at will. Every time these incidents happen there are set reactions from those in power. <b>This time, however, the ruling coalition at the Centre and in Mumbai has been forced into accepting their incompetence and insensitivity and they are trying to save themselves from people’s anger by making Shivraj Patil, Vilasrao Deshmukh and R.R. Patil the scapegoats</b>.

One is reminded of the public rage after India’s defeat in the war with China in 1962 when the defence minister, also <b>Jawaharlal Nehru’s blue-eyed boy, V.K. Krishna Menon, was made the target. </b>The pathetic state of India’s armed forces that the war in 1962 exposed and the poor quality of its leadership had turned the searchlight on Jawaharlal Nehru himself. <b>Two generations later, Congress president Sonia Gandhi has saved her own party’s government by letting her favourite puppet in the home ministry take the blame for a series of security lapses, culminating in the 26/11 incident</b>.

Insensitivity to the tragedy of civilian and military losses was writ large on the behaviour of this generation’s Krishna Menons. <b>Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh took a “filmy” tour around the Taj Mahal Hotel, his deputy R.R. Patil dismissed the attacks as a small incidents that often happen in large cities, and the Union home minister was his usual deadpan n self, unable to put the attacks in perspective. But in a class by himself was the Left leader and Kerala chief minister V.S. Achutananandan when he claimed that but for the NSG Major who died leading the commando team, “even a dog” would not have visited the Unnikrishnan house in Bangalore.</b>

<b>Public anger is fed by the realisation that the government at the Centre has no strategy to tackle the pervasive threat of Islamic fascism. The roots of Islamic fascism are deep and the terrorism that it feeds is a complex phenomenon as one of America’s leading academics, Zbigniew Brezezinski, also national security adviser to President Carter, has pointed out.</b> In our case, the complexity is enhanced by the context. Pakistan is the original inspirer and instigator of jihadi terror, not so much the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. The latter was a foster child of Pakistan’s changing regimes, both civilian and military, because terrorism paid political dividends for Pakistan’s rulers. The theory of defeating India by inflicting a “thousand cuts” on its body was the central theme of Pakistan’s policy for the last two decades.

Even though terror groups have begun to bite the very hands that fed them, the new civilian regime in Pakistan can hardly afford to dismantle their camps and block their funds for fear of a fundamentalist backlash and Pakistani people’s adverse reaction. After all, terror groups like the LeT have umbilical links with the Pakistani Army. That connection was exposed when the civilian government had to withdraw its proclaimed intention of bringing the ISI under civilian control. And it was underlined when Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani had to backtrack on his assurance to send the ISI chief to India in the wake of 26/11 for a joint consultation.

India is on Pakistan establishment’s radar continually despite the fine words of President Asif Zardari in Delhi recently. The aggressive Pakistani military continues to be a force in Pakistani politics despite the change of regime from military dictatorship to elected civilian rule. And the mindset of the younger generation in Pakistan, created by decades of fundamentalist education, cannot be wiped out despite all the goodwill that has surfaced towards India in the last few months.

It has now been revealed that for several years the Indian government was aware of how vulnerable the Indian coast was to terrorist attacks. But if you ask the government what it did, the answer is a big “zero”. <b>The incompetence of this government is brought out by the fact that it took several hours to transport NSG commandos from Delhi to Mumbai because a plane to carry them was not available.</b>

<b>The level of ineptitude in the Manmohan Singh government is so blatant that despite the intercepts by RAW on the modalities of a sea route attack, no action was taken by the guardians of our coast. Even after the vessel carrying the terrorists was located, the Navy let it off when the occupants flashed fake identity cards.</b> Such revelations are piling up and the Manmohan Singh government is taking shelter behind another set of assurances and the elimination of a few heads.

In the wake of the 26/11 incidents and government’s abject failure in anticipating them, and inaction even after getting warnings from its own agencies, analysts have quoted from the bipartisan approach that characterises US foreign policy initiatives. Not only the current administration in Washington, but the incoming administration too has rushed to make common cause with India.

But bipartisan approach in India is difficult so long as the Central government is going to deal with jihadi terror wearing velvet gloves. Railway minister Lalu Yadav wanted the then home minister Shivraj Patil to resign. <b>But what about Mr Yadav himself who went to commiserate with Simi activists’ families when several activists from Azamgarh were found involved in serial bombings? Congress minister Kapil Sibal too joined SP’s Amar Singh to demand judicial probe into the Batla House encounter where a brave police officer laid down his life while trying to apprehend terrorists. The Congress, the SP, the Left and others who collectively prop up this government have been apologists for the very people who were found by our agencies to be working in tandem with LeT and Bangladesh’s Huji.</b>

People who are demonstrating against the political class must ponder if it is enough to demand just stern steps against terror. <b>It is equally necessary for our government to be willing to confront the “jihadi mentality” on the strength of which terrorists from outside and inside build their “destruction capsules”.</b>
