<b> ULFA-HuJI combine may strike in Assam </b>

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->GUWAHATI: The outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) is planning to outsource terror by hiring foreign mercenaries or Islamist terrorists to carry out violent strikes in Assam ahead of Independence Day, says a top police official.

"It may be possible that the ULFA could hire mercenaries or take the help of jehadi elements, including the HuJI (Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami), to carry out terror strikes in Assam ahead of Aug 15," Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, inspector general of Assam police (Law and Order), told IANS.
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Forget POTA-type law, Patil tells BJP </b>
Kumar Uttam | New Delhi
Gujarat - the latest victim of terror strikes -- and Rajasthan may not be able to enact special laws of their own to counter organised crimes. There are indications from the Union Government that it would not allow the States to have a law of their own on the lines of POTA. 

The laws drafted by Gujarat and Rajasthan are akin to the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) in the Congress-ruled State and have been awaiting Centre's nod for many years.

Well-placed sources confirmed to The Pioneer that Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has told senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Arun Jaitley that after repeal of POTA, the Centre has decided not to allow any new State to formulate anti-terror legislation of its own. Advani and Jaitley, who had called on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday evening to discuss internal security situation in the light of the recent serial blasts in two BJP-ruled states, wanted to know from Patil, who was present at the meeting, why the Centre was proving to be a stumbling block for Gujarat and Rajasthan if the States wanted to have a special law for dealing with terrorists.

"When States like Maharashtra and Karnataka have a special law to deal with terrorists, why aren't you allowing it in Gujarat and Rajasthan? Lack of a tough law in these States emboldens terrorists and they strike at will," the BJP leaders had told Patil.

Sources said the BJP leaders also contended the Home Minister's argument that law and order was a State subject, especially when the Centre was not providing them with "enough teeth" to counter organised crime.

National security Adviser MK Narayanan was more forthcoming in admitting that there had been a change in the modus operandi of terrorists and, unlike the operations carried out by terrorists two years back, there was more "local" involvement in such activities in the current scenario
Congress is telling Indians, we will not do anything, we will allow Indian Muslims to kill Hindus till number is under 1000 per case, frequency is every two to three months and they are not touching our family. Good luck Indians, wait for your time.
<b>The nation that failed</b>

So it is yesterday all over again, and the sameness of the savagery only adds to the legendary Indian sense of sangfroid. Two spirited cities of India, 23 blasts, more than 50 dead, hundreds maimed, and the predictable Day-After theatre of politics feasting on cadavers strewn across the streets of the world's most fatalistic state.

<b>This overwhelming banality of horror tells one simple truth: we can take a lot more, we can shed a lot more blood, we have a lot more people to spare… </b>

<b>Enterprising jihadists are welcome, </b>and the incentives you get in the great democratic republic where no terrorist worth his nihilistic fantasy is denied the right to kill under an equal opportunity scheme is greater than what you can get anywhere else in the world, may be with the exception of Iraq.

<b>It should be now official: India is a dangerous place to be in, unless you are a god's mercenary for whom this wretched country is the easiest battlefield in the war against infidels or an honourable member of the political class that has already abdicated its responsibility to protect the nation.</b>

The frequency of the attacks and their magnitude say a lot about the jihadist and the victim. <b>The killer is precise; he chooses his target for maximum effect; and he seems to enjoy the kind of freedom that is denied to his brotherhood elsewhere. </b>

Ahmedabad comes just two months after Jaipur which was preceded by Hyderabad 2007, Mumbai 2006, Delhi 2005 and the audacious attack on Parliament in the afterglow of 9/11.

<b>Come to think of it: the most favoured nation for those who want to invest in jihad is not the United States or Israel any longer. It is India. Not that Washington and Jerusalem have ceased to be less satanic for jihadists.</b>

<b>India does not have the political will or consensus to identify the threat of radical Islam and confront it.</b> <b>It does not have that necessary iron in the nationalist soul to ensure that life is not disposable at the diktat of a coward trapped in the make believe of a scriptural Caliphate</b>.

What we have got is an apparition in funereal white floating in Ahmedabad, mouthing platitudinous inanities as if it is just another routine mission for him in just another death zone.

<b>The enormity of our national shame cannot be reduced to the size of the Union Home Minister, but the gentleman is symptomatic of everything that is wrong with those who have the political mandate to act. </b>

"We have information but it is not proper for me to disclose that information at this point of time or blame any organisation because it has implications."

It is Shivraj Patil post-Ahmedabad, and it is as enlightening as what he had said about the threat to national security in a television interview immediately after taking over: "The disease within the body is more dangerous"—whatever it means.

Effete and evasive, he is the home minister in a Government that can do nothing but cry "FBI"in utter exasperation whenever it is under attack.

<b>We don't expect from this Government a department of homeland security or an Indian version of America's Patriot Act or extraordinary rendition or, for that matter, a Gitmo in the Andamans for the higher cause of national security. What about an alternative to the "draconian" Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA)? </b>

<b>State governments like Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are not even given the permission to pass their own anti-terrorism laws while Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat are awaiting presidential assent to their bills against terror.</b>

A government that allows a terrorist condemned to the gallows to become a living symbol for the perennially disenchanted but the vote-rich minorities is unlikely to identify radical Islamism as a threat to India. So it will go on triangulate in politically correct malarkey, with the home minister as its bumbling interlocutor.

And India will continue to be savaged. Today, in the post-9/11 statistics of terror, India, a liberal democracy, is second only to post-Saddam Iraq, liberated but at war with itself.

<b>This terrifying truth magnifies the failure of the state—and the entire political class which is never united by grief or fear. Sadly, even when the new generation faces of Kashmir—one of the oldest datelines of Islamic terror—went eloquent about 'Being Indian' in Parliament, the war against India in the Valley found no place in their nationalist script. </b>

<b>As long as India refuses to shed its shameful political expediency, we can only wallow in our victimhood. We deserve better.</b>
AHMEDABAD: Atankvad ko Lalkar (Daring Terrorism) is just one of the 380 videos of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's live speeches posted on YouTube . Across the world, there is hardly a politician with so many videos of speeches uploaded on this popular website.

Many of these speeches deal with terror, calling terrorists maut ke saudagar , or merchants of death, a term which UPA chief Sonia Gandhi first used in the Gujarat Assembly election campaign in December 2007. While Sonia was trying to implicate the BJP rulers for killings in Gujarat riots of 2002, Modi was quick to turn the coinage on its head, directing it towards the war on terror which was his planned poll plank anyway.

Internal Insecurity

For nearly five years now the world media had been celebrating India’s rise. From the state of its stock market to its demographic advantage, from the strength and depth of its democracy to the vast reservoir of talent that flourished in its diversity, it was as if the world could see nothing wrong with India. There are now signs that some of that is changing.

And no, it is not just because of those thousand-rupee bundles displayed in the Lok Sabha. It is because of something much more serious,<b> in fact a failure so serious it could, by itself, lose the UPA the next election. These four and half years are the worst in India’s history of fighting terrorism</b>. Surely somebody in the UPA will bring out statistics to show that overall deaths were more in some other regime’s five years. But this is not just about numbers. <b>It is a spectacular four and a half years of mayhem when not one terrorist has been caught, not one major case solved. Even by the modest standards that Shivraj Patil’s home ministry may have set for itself, this is a spectacularly disastrous record.</b>

The world press, if anything, has been late in catching this. Last week, Somini Sengupta of The New York Times quoted a stunning fact from a report of the Washington-based National Counter-Terrorism Centre. <b>It said, between January 2004 and March 2007, India had lost 3,674 lives to terrorism, second only to Iraq.</b> And we can’t even claim that this is happening because some imperialist occupation army is running amok here.<b> In fact that number, by now, must have crossed 5,000. If this notion spreads globally, it would do more to damage India’s image as an oasis of democratic stability, pacifism and economic growth than any twists in its politics, or even a half-decade reform holiday</b>.

So far the UPA government has had one standard response: compare this with the record under the NDA: Kandahar hijack, Parliament attack, Akshardham. But there is a short use-by date on these arguments. You cannot take them into your next election campaign. Soon enough, the memory of those incidents would have faded, been replaced by new ones: Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Kabul, Mumbai trains, Samjhauta Express and so on. And then the unchecked Naxalite attacks.

<b>Most amazing is the sense of cool with which this government, particularly its home ministry, has responded to these losses.</b> While they can pretend that Naxalite strikes are some sinister happenings in places that are out of sight, out of mind, somebody — most likely the voter — will soon remind them that, while those managing internal security may not care for the lives of policemen in faraway states, never in the history of insurgencies have we suffered casualties like these. In fact, if you go over our five-decade history of insurgencies, the 38 lives lost in the Naxalite attack on the police boat were perhaps the second-largest loss of life by security forces in a day in internal security operations after only the army’s casualties on the night of Operation Bluestar. It is rare for security forces to suffer double-digit casualties in insurgencies. Even during the Kargil conflict it was a rare day’s fighting on which the army lost so many lives, against an entrenched foreign army. <b>The two most striking things here have been the equanimity — frankly, cynical and sometimes sanctimonious indifference — with which this security establishment has treated it.</b>

The talk of Naxalism in a week when two of our most important cities saw serial-bombings and a third had 23 unexploded bombs recovered, is not a digression.<b> It underlines the unmoving, thick-skinned, incompetent and pusillanimous response to terror from this government. What is worse, it is even politically loaded. And while, ultimately, the UPA may be made to pay for it electorally, too many lives are being lost meanwhile, and too much damage is being done to India’s image. The government cannot ride out an entire five years claiming that their predecessors’ record was worse.</b>

Soon enough people will also start reminding them that the NDA’s six years coincided with a state of near-war with Pakistan, when ISI support to terror in India was unabashed and comprehensive and when an active proxy war was on in Kashmir. It is the four years of relative peace with Pakistan that make the UPA’s failure even more striking.

Over the past year or so we have all got focussed on <b>what we saw as the communalisation of our foreign policy: don’t vote against Iran at the IAEA because our own Shias would get upset, don’t sign the nuclear deal with Bush as that will irritate all our own Muslims, conduct your relations with Israel by stealth for the same reason, even stop the two missile development projects with them, no matter how badly your armies may need them.</b> Last week we saw the prime minister fight back on this, and successfully too. But can he do the same with internal security?

The odds are steeper because that issue was communalised first. It began with the last election campaign and the composition of this alliance. There may have been a sound case against POTA because it was misused, but both in public discourse and political action its repeal was made to look like a favour to the Muslims. Then, the same “communalised” politics interfered in police investigations following the serial blasts in Mumbai trains and Hyderabad. Ask senior police officers there — even Congress chief ministers if they’d dare to speak the truth — <b>and they will tell you how they pulled away in fright, under pressure from the Centre for targeting and upsetting Muslims (voters) in their investigations. This proceeded neatly alongside the utterly communalised discourse on the Afzal Guru hanging issue.</b> Each time <b>this government and its intellectual storm-troopers proffered the minority argument in support of this soft policy, it emboldened the terrorists.</b>

They figured they were dealing with a political leadership which had already committed a self-goal by equating counter-terror with Muslim alienation and which had, in the process,<b> totally demoralised its intelligence agencies and police forces. </b>And if it is not guilty of communalising our internal security policy, how does it explain sitting on special anti-terror laws in all BJP-run states when exactly similar ones have been passed for the Congress states? Now you can say special laws are good or bad, but they must be equally so for all citizens in all states. If these laws are good, or necessary, then citizens in BJP-run states have as much need — and right — to get their protection as those in the Congress states. Unless the message is: you want protection, you better vote for us. You vote for others, you are on your own.

<b>It is not going to work. It is morally wrong and politically suicidal. Protecting the citizens’ life is the first responsibility of any government. Surely no government can ensure no terror attack would ever happen. But it has to be seen to be trying, fighting, and being even-handed. This government fails on all three counts so far, no matter how nicely ironed its chief-spokesman’s bandh-galas, how neatly combed his hair. If the prime minister does not fix this in time, his party will be asked really tough questions in the next election.</b>

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Terror won’t stop till we fight it like a war </b>
By Vikram Sood

It has been a bad and bloody month for all of us. Four Indians, including a brigadier, a senior diplomat and two paramilitary jawans, were killed in a suicide attack on our embassy in Kabul. Around the same time, terrorists in Jammu & Kashmir struck against the Indian Army twice, and there were several border violations. And then the blasts in Bengaluru and Ahmedabad. <b>Did anyone lose sleep over all this? Probably not. And this is cause for outrage because after the usual hand-wringing, denunciations, compensations and pontification, we return to life as usual because terrorism doesn’t affect us. It affects “others”.</b>

We forget that terrorism has been with us for decades. <b>We have become numb to casualties — they have been reduced to mere statistics</b>. The blasts we have seen recently are carefully planned acts of terror against soft targets. They are meant to spread fear, to provoke a reaction. <b>They are meant to undermine the economy and to send a signal to India’s majority that their lives are not safe</b>.

As yet, there is no evidence about who was responsible for these acts, though as usual various names are afloat. <b>But the fact is that we have brought this upon ourselves</b>. <b>Yes, we are the victims of terrorism from Pakistan. But instead of dealing with it single-mindedly, we sought to appease; Instead of strengthening our investigation and intelligence network, we issued caveats to investigators. Pakistan may or may not be responsible for the current terrorist attacks, but we must take responsibility for allowing a certain mindset to grow and spread unhindered</b>.

People like Osama bin Laden claim that the West, led by the United States and Britain, are the “crusaders” of the modern world who have occupied the “holy land.” They and their allies — Israelis, Indians and Russians — must be thrown out. The worst offenders, they claim, are the “apostate” Muslim kingdoms and governments in West Asia. These lands have to be freed through jihad. We hear echoes of these instructions in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border regions of Fata and Swat.

<b>In his 1996 declaration of jihad against the US, Osama mentioned Kashmir and Assam as some of the places where there was injustice, repression and aggression by Christians, Jews and their agents.</b> To achieve their goal, Osama and his kind justify alliance with the ungodly and the sinners — drug traffickers, arms smugglers. They also justify killing innocent people and children so long as it was not intended.

Bin Laden has often cited Nagasaki and Hiroshima in his speeches and said that possession of weapons of mass destruction to counter those of the “infidels” is a religious duty. And to carry on with the jihad, it is best to recruit the young and the unattached in the age group of 15 to 25. In February 1998, Osama exhorted Muslims “to kill all Americans and their allies, civilians and military… it is the individual duty of every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible...”

This is not to suggest that all Muslims everywhere believe in this. But there are many in Pakistan today who believe in Osama. And that is why terrorists’ training camps in the hinterland and fulminations from the pulpit continue. In his Friday sermon on July 11, Hafiz Saeed, the Amir of Jama’t ud da’wa, Pakistan, known for his extreme views, urged Muslims to prepare themselves for sacrifices in order to defend Muslim lands, and to protect their “honour and dignity”. <b>Two days later, Saeed declared that it was obligatory upon every Pakistani to wrest Kashmir from Indian occupation, adding that India should not dream of peace in the region as long as the Kashmir issue remained unresolved.</b> Extremists in Pakistan, encouraged by the ISI, the Army and politicians, have long targeted India and not just Kashmir. This is very similar to what Osama preaches to his jihadis.

Jaipur, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, and now Surat. These are warnings about a growing capability and ideology extending beyond Kashmir. They are dropping their visiting cards, with the message that more such attacks will take place.<b> India now needs to make the call. When terror struck America and Britain, they introduced draconian laws. The Bush administration even introduced controversial surveillance laws. In India, we did away with the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA), but did not consider it important to have an adequate substitute. </b>

Battling terror is a long and arduous task: the capability to prevent attacks has to be upgraded constantly, with the knowledge and acceptance that not all attacks can be prevented. <b>Even with our present system there are many attacks that get aborted.  But when intelligence is inadequate and follow-ups incomplete, indiscriminate arrests follow which lead to further alienation.</b>

Heightened intelligence capability, sustained and built over a period of time, which is able to keep pace with the growing threat, skillful investigation and forensics, particularly at the state level, sharing intelligence, national identity cards, CCTVs at important places, speedy justice which is also seen to be fair, a system of governance that delivers what it is supposed to and a media that does not compete for TRP ratings over such issues: All this and more will have to be put in place for us to succeed.  India must get ready to detect, deter and destroy this menace before it destroys us.

“Loyalty” to the ruling party is the key to success. All sins are forgiven if the political boss is happy. Police and intelligence failures are obvious, but it is not due to any inherent flaw in our system. Not too long ago, the officers of the same Intelligence Bureau played the most crucial role in defeating terrorism in Punjab. One of the senior most officers of the Bureau set a personal example for his organisation by risking his life inside the Golden Temple for days to pass on vital information about the terrorist holed up there to the police and National Security Guard.

Atiq Khan

Fake notes with a face value of Rs.20 lakh recovered from Domariaganj branch of the State Bank of India

It was printed in Pakistan and entered U.P. through Kathmandu, Dhaka

Role of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence not ruled out

LUCKNOW: Fake currency with a face value of Rs.20 lakh (20 wads of notes of thousand-rupee denomination) has been recovered from the currency chest of the Domariaganj branch of the State Bank of India in Siddharthnagar district of Uttar Pradesh, bordering Nepal, the police disclosed here on Tuesday.The sensational seizure was made by a team of Reserve Bank of India officials who raided the branch on Monday at the behest of the Uttar Police Special Task Force. Another sum of Rs.70 lakh (14,000 notes in the denomination of Rs.500), for which entries were made in the bank’s cash register, was missing from the chest.

On July 29, the branch cashier Sudhakar Tripathi had been arrested and sent to jail after the police seized Rs.7.19 lakh in genuine currency and fake notes with a face value of Rs.5,000 from his residence. Tripathi allegedly worked in tandem with Abid Sheikh alias Pandit, who was arrested by the STF in Domariaganj the same day. Pandit was allegedly found in possession of fake currency with a face value of Rs.5 lakh. Interrogation showed that he brought the money from Nepal.

Over Rs.50 lakh in fake currency has been seized from Aligarh, Bijnor, Lucknow and Siddharthnagar since a racket was unearthed by the STF in May this year.

Additional Director-General of Police (Law and Order and STF) Brij Lal said here on Tuesday that since the RBI team was examining the fake notes seized from SBI Domariaganj, the amount of fake currency is likely to increase. He said the number, 5CK756601, printed on the fake notes in the denomination of Rs.1,000 was found to be common in all 20 packets.

“Investigations are under way,” he told journalists.

Sources in the STF said the fake currency was printed in Pakistan and entered UP through Kathmandu and Dhaka. STF sleuths have not ruled out the possibility of the Pakistan-based Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) playing facilitator in the nefarious trade.

Pandit’s name in the racket surfaced after the STF arrested here on July 25 four persons, who were found to be in possession of counterfeit currency with a face value of Rs.16 lakh.

On being interrogated, the leader of the four, Suhel Singh, said the money had been supplied to them by Pandit, a resident of Jamoti Thana at Domariaganj in Siddharthnagar district.

Singh also told his interrogators that the fake currency travelled from Kathmandu to Bihar and then to UP through agents and sub-agents. The fake currency was distributed along with genuine notes in different places in eastern UP. Following the arrest of Pandit and recovery of fake currency from the cashier’s residence on July 29, Mr. Lal wrote to the RBI Regional Director on July 30 asking that bank branches in the districts bordering Nepal – Maharajganj, Gorakhpur, Basti, Siddharthnagar, Balrampur, Lakhimpur Kheri, Pilibhit and Bahraich — be examined. Aligarh, Meerut and Ghaziabad districts in western UP were also mentioned in his letter.
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Ban on SIMI to continue: Supreme Court
6 Aug 2008, 1520 hrs IST,AGENCIES

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the controversial order of a special tribunal lifting ban on activities of the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). ( Watch )

A petition challenging the tribunal's verdict was mentioned before the bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, which agreed with the Centre seeking a grant of interim stay.

The Court issued a notice to the SIMI and posted the matter for hearing after three weeks.

The tribunal headed by Delhi High Court judge, Justice Geeta Mittal, had on Tuesday quashed the February 7 notification issued by the government extending the ban on SIMI under the Unlawful Activities (prevention) Act.

The Tribunal had held that the Centre has failed to come up with any new evidence to justify the ban on the organisation.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>SIMI is dangerous </b>
The Pioneer Edit Desk
Tribunal erred in lifting ban
The Supreme Court has done the right thing by ruling on Wednesday that the ban on the Students' Islamic Movement of India will continue, thus staying Tuesday's astonishing order of a special tribunal which lifted restrictions on this jihadi organisation's activities while rejecting the Government's case. Thankfully, the Union Home Ministry did not waste any time and sought the apex court's intervention before the tribunal's order could cause any damage -- the Additional Solicitor-General was not exaggerating when he drew the Supreme Court's attention to the "serious consequences" of allowing the ban to be lifted. While there is reason to believe that the Union Home Ministry was not sufficiently alert to the possibility of the tribunal, headed by a Delhi High Court judge, passing an adverse order, valid questions have been raised about the manner in which the ban on SIMI was set aside and the reasons that were cited to justify the decision. For instance, as mentioned by the Additional Solicitor-General, the tribunal's 263-page order skirts the merits of the case against SIMI, ignoring the Intelligence Bureau reports on members of the organisation indulging in terrorist activities, provided by the Government, even while iterating that there is "no new evidence" to justify the February 7 notification extending the ban till 2010. Strangely, the tribunal has chosen to ignore overwhelming evidence -- as is claimed to have been submitted by the Government -- about SIMI's links with terrorist organisations like Hizb-ul Mujahideen and Lashker-e-Tayyeba. It is equally inexplicable as to why the tribunal has chosen not to take note of the contents of a Cabinet note, which was placed before it in a sealed envelope, and ignore the "deposition of 77 witnesses". These witnesses were not low-level operatives but senior officials of Intelligence Bureau and State intelligence agencies; if their deposition is brushed aside, then there is something seriously wrong with the criminal justice system. If the tribunal was looking for the proverbial smoking gun, then it should have known better: Terrorism is not fought with material evidence.

Ironically, the tribunal's order, clearly flawed and illogical, comes within days of the terrorist bombings in Ahmedabad, Surat, Bangalore and, before that, Jaipur. From Delhi to Hyderabad, Mumbai to Malegaon, Jaipur to Lucknow and Ahmedabad to Surat, the black hand of SIMI is suspected to have played a role in the killing of innocent people. The busting of the terror module in Indore earlier this year, which led to the arrest of key SIMI office-bearers on the run from the law for years, has also been overlooked by the tribunal. India's criminal justice system, including investigation and prosecution, has often come up for scathing criticism in Western capitals in the context of our abject failure to combat jihadi terror. The tribunal's order would appear to justify much of this criticism, as would the inordinate delay in despatching terrorists to their destination -- either behind bars or the gallows. Meanwhile, it is shocking that even as the Government is pressing hard for extending the ban on SIMI, key allies of the Congress and senior Cabinet colleagues of the Prime Minister are pushing for the ban to be lifted. Muslim politics, it would seem, has now degenerated into pandering to jihadis.
<b>UPA Govt rewarded SIMI for carrying out blasts in party-ruled States: BJP</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>BJP speaks</b>

Is this the last deal, or many more are yet to be struck?

SIMI rewarded for carrying out strikes in BJP-ruled States.

Lalu and Mulayam welcoming lifting of the ban are confessional statements that Government opposed the ban on SIMI.

The then Uttar Pradesh Congress president Sriprakash Jaiswal (now MoS for Home) had opposed ban on SIMI in Uttar Pradesh 2001.

Is the failure of the Home Ministry to press the ban on SIMI a larger game plan?

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->The supplementary chargesheet (No 30(A)/2008) against Deshmukh, issued on February 25 this year, said: “Riyajuddin Gayasuddin Deshmukh, police inspector, had, in his house at Jakir Colony, given shelter to his brother-in-law, namely Izaz Ahmed Mohammad Ibrahim… who is a SIMI member and against whom offenses are pending at Buldhana… He was provided shelter at his house, when he himself was officer at the State Intelligence Department at Amravati.”

The explicit reasons for the ban on SIMI in 2001 by the government of India were followed by the crackdown on its two members Mushahid Siddiqui and Aness khan.

The interrogation of the duo led to the arrest of Deshmukh’s son Khwaja Moinuddin Deshmukh and his brother-in-law Izaz Ibrahim. <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
Is this Khwaja Moinuddin Deshmukh related to Kaleem Khwaja?

Given the treason of muslim cops
how about treason of Indian muslim soldiers in army and CRPF etc
