<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Al-Badr terrorist came to India on regular visa</b>
Press Trust of India
New Delhi, October 27, 2006
Karachi-based Mohammed Fahad, one of two Pakistan-trained terrorists arrested in Mysore today, <b>had come to India on a regular 45-day visa on the pretext of meeting his Malayali grandparents.
The parents of Fahad, who was trained by the Pakistan-based Al-Badr terrorist outfit, had migrated to Karachi in 1971.</b>

After joining the terrorist ranks, he was used by the ISI for its operations of targeting important installations in the Indian hinterland, especially in the southern part of the country, official sources said.

<b>Fahad, having a fair knowledge of Malayali, had got his visa stamped for Karnataka and Kolkata and arrived at the Mumbai international airport in February this year.</b>

<b>He came into the net of security agencies after he was spotted at Lal Chowk in Srinagar, after which surveillance was tightened on him, they said.</b>

<b>A Master of Science in analytical chemistry, Fahad had sent Rs 13 lakh through normal banking channels to Al-Badr terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir</b>, they said.

His role in terrorist activities was further substantiated by Al-Badr member Samir Ahmed Bhat, who was arrested in Pulwama district and to whom Fahad had handed over Rs three lakh.

During his stay in the country, Fahad had applied for an Indian passport, ration card and other documents to back his claim of being an Indian.

Mohammed Ali Hussain alias Qassim, the other terrorist nabbed with Fahad, had come into India through Leepa Valley in north Kashmir and had been staying in the Nishat area of Kashmir before moving to Mysore, the sources said.

He is wanted by Jammu and Kashmir Police in connection with several cases.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
<b>ISI-LTTE nexus to target South India</b>
<b>Guilty of complicity -- KPS Gill</b>
It is truly astonishing that a man who has lied so often and so obviously on the subject, should still be constantly sought out for his opinion and assessment on the course of terrorism in the South Asian region and, in fact, the world. It is, moreover, incomprehensible that world leaders still tolerate, acquiesce in, and even encourage this man's continuous mendacity, his baseless boasting, and his incessant and false posturing. <b>Gen Pervez Musharraf must be one of the few dictators in the world who has made such an utter mess of his country, and of regions well beyond, during his tenure, and still gets such excellent Press globally, and constant support and praise from the leaders of the 'free world'.</b>

<b>In return, Gen Musharraf harangues and threatens the very leaders and nations that support him and his perverse regime and its monstrous intelligence wing, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), claiming that the West would be 'brought to its knees' by terrorism, if Pakistan and the ISI did not support the 'Global War on Terror'.</b>

<b>Gen Musharraf is, in fact, the most effective agency of Pakistan's propaganda machine, and has relentlessly propagated fabrications and half-truths, largely or entirely unrelated to the situation on the ground, and that prey on public, Western - and particularly American - ignorance. The sheer brazenness of these fabrications, and the Pakistani propagandist's strategy of offence as the best form of defence, is illustrated by Gen Musharraf's recent counter to Indian allegations of Pakistan's role in terrorism, to which he responded, "There are 21 such places in India where violence continues. The situation in Assam is also visible. So New Delhi should first correct its own matters and then talk to Pakistan." </b>

The reference to Assam is significant: First, it seeks to divert attention from the core problem of Pakistan-backed terrorism in widening areas of the country. Second, it brushes under the carpet the fact that the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), the principal insurgent group in Assam, and the lesser surviving groups in the State, <b>all secure operational bases and safe haven in Bangladesh and also receive significant assistance, weaponry, training and tactical advice from the ISI-DGFI (Directorate General of Forces Intelligence, the ISI's Bangladeshi counterpart) combine that has kept these movements alive long after their complete loss of public support and their abandonment of the original ideology and mandate for which they were purportedly created. </b>In this, consequently, Gen Musharraf is essentially pointing to problems that his country has at least some role in keeping alive. 

The mischief and mendacity in Gen Musharraf's reference to Assam become clearer when they are taken in the context of an earlier statement (on August 28) by Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Tasneem Aslam who declared authoritatively, <b>"India remains afflicted with several insurgencies, including in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura, Bundelkhand, Gorkhaland, Bodoland and Khaplang, which are being suppressed by force." </b>

The audacity of the statement is startling - not even the smallest effort has been made to check out facts before such a statement is issued at the level of the Government. For instance, Bundelkhand (in central India) has never been the location of an insurgency; 'Gorkhaland' is not a location, but was the demand of a brief movement by people of Nepali extraction living in a small area around Darjeeling in West Bengal, which was resolved as far back as 1988. The insurgents in Nagaland have been in a continuous cease-fire and process of negotiations with the Government for the last nine years. 

The major parties to the Bodoland movement have settled for peace with the Government. And finally and most barefaced of all, Khaplang is the name of a factional leader of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim, one of the militant groups in Nagaland currently negotiating with the Government, and not of a place or even an insurgent movement. And yet, nearly two months after this statement was made, none of this has been publicly challenged, no call for explanations has been made by India or demanded by an alert and informed media. The statement, however, will have worked its damage, projecting the idea of an India that must answer for the multiplicity of insurgencies on its soil, rather than a Pakistan that needs to explain its role in a specific set of terrorist movements and actions.

<b>The sudden emphasis on insurgencies in India's North-East, rather than any other regions afflicted by comparable problems, is not accidental, and is significant in both Ms Aslam's statement and Gen Musharraf's specific reference to Assam. This is evidently part of a strategy to shift focus towards an ethnically and geographically distinct region in India, and may well be a prelude for greater covert activity by Pakistani and Bangladeshi intelligence, through local militant groups including the ULFA, in the foreseeable future</b>.

This brazenness is directly related to India's failure to expose Pakistani propaganda, and to adequately demonstrate to the world, Pakistan's continuing role as the source of Islamist terrorism in India and internationally, and of support to terrorist groups across India's North-East. This is despite the immense volumes of hard evidence that is available in terms of arrested cadres from Pakistan and their narratives of Pakistani military and intelligence involvement in their recruitment, training, arming and deployment; the thousands of clearly identifiable weapons and tonnes of RDX, detonators, communications equipment and other materials, overwhelming proportions of which could be traced back to Pakistan with sufficient forensic attention and international cooperation.

In effect, India is part of the conspiracy of silence and appeasement that has allowed Pakistani deniability and falsification to flourish. Through the current 'peace process' and the charade of the 'joint mechanism' for counter-terrorism India continues to provide international legitimacy to a terrorist state and Gen Musharraf's criminal regime.

These are the circumstances - our ignorance, our indifference, our pusillanimity, our inability to understand and neutralise the strategic intent of Pakistan's propaganda and terrorist machinery - that create the enveloping circumstances which allow Pakistan to remain the principal breeding ground of Islamist terrorism in south Asia. India's security forces are constantly called upon to make sacrifices for the defence of the country against Pakistan-backed terrorism; thousands of security personnel and even larger numbers of innocent civilians have lost their lives in Pakistan's covert war on India.<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'> To continue to give Pakistan and its leadership the latitude it currently enjoys is nothing less than criminal complicity in this enterprise of terrorism. India's political leadership and the higher echelons of its policy establishment are squarely guilty of this complicity. </span>

Pakistanis' arrest evokes great interest at Centre

Special Correspondent

RAW conducting its own probe against Fahad and Hussain

# First time in the South that suspected militants were nabbed with evidence
# Evidence to prove their Pakistani connection

MYSORE: The progress of the case relating to the arrest of two Pakistani nationals suspected to belong to the Al-Badr outfit has generated tremendous interest at the Centre and is being monitored by the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

RAW sleuths are here for the past few days conducting their own inquiry against the Pakistani nationals.

The Mysore police trailed Mohammad Fahad and Mohammed Ali Hussain for nearly four months after being tipped off by intelligence agencies before arresting them. They seized from them incriminating documents, a large cache of arms and ammunitions, an AK-47 rifle, chemicals used in the manufacture of explosives, a satellite phone and 20 SIM cards, among others.

Fahad is a postgraduate in Analytical Chemistry from Karachi University. He is also a computer expert and his ICICI bank account helped trace funds routed from the U.S. and the UAE while telephone calls made by him have been traced to Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

The Union Government's interest in the case stems from the fact that it was for the first time in South India that the police could capture two suspected militants with sufficient evidence to prove their malafide intentions and their Pakistani connection.

"This neutralises Pakistan's persistent denial that it was abetting terrorism in India," according to the police investigating the case.

Apart from RAW, Intelligence Bureau sleuths are monitoring the progress of the case.

<b>'Muslims not trusted by security apparatus'</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->New Delhi, November 7: There are scarcely any Muslims working in the country's 10,000-strong external intelligence agency, and neither Muslims nor Sikhs working as bodyguards for the country's top leaders, according to officials and media reports.

The country has its first Sikh Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, but his community is not trusted enough to guard him, according to Outlook magazine this week.

<b>The magazine said Muslims were not trusted by the security apparatus because of fears they could sympathise with Pakistan.</b>

<b>It said none had been recruited by the country's external spy agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), since 1969</b>

<b>The domestic Intelligence Bureau (IB) had decided to recruit Muslims in the l990s, Outlook said, but the organisation still only had a "handful" of Muslim officers.</b>

A government spokesman declined to comment on the report.

<b>An intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Outlook was wrong to say there were no Muslims in RAW but right to say there were scarcely any.</b>

Nor were there any working as bodyguards in the Special Protection Group (SPG) assigned to protecting current and former prime ministers and their families, he said.

<b>"It is an unwritten rule in the SPG that they cannot recruit a Muslim or a Sikh," he informed.</b>

AS Dulat, who served as RAW chief from 1999 to 2000, said he did not recall coming across any Muslims in the organisation but could not confirm the Outlook report.

"If we do not have any Muslims obviously this is a handicap," he said. "If there are no Muslims, there must have been a reluctance to take them in. It is also not easy to find that many Muslims."

Need for Muslims acute

Sikhs have not been used as bodyguards since Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her personal Sikh bodyguards in 1984 at the height of a Sikh insurgency, Outlook said.

Dulat said Sikhs had come "under a cloud" following Gandhi's murder, but found it hard to believe they would still be excluded from bodyguard duties today.

Leaked excerpts of a specially commissioned report, due to be published this month, have shown Muslims are significantly underrepresented in government jobs and in the judiciary but overrepresented in the prison populations in many states.

<b>There are just 29,000 Muslims in India's 1.3-million strong armed forces, according to the defence ministry. </b>

But Outlook magazine's report will also raise concerns about whether India's intelligence gathering will be effective without Muslim agents and officers.

"The need for Muslim officers in intelligence-gathering is acute," another former RAW chief, Girish Chandra Saxena, was quoted as saying<b>. "There are very few people who have knowledge of Urdu or Arabic. The issue has to be addressed."</b>

The Pioneer Edit Desk
Must we squawk like chickens?
There's an apocryphal joke about what is described in ponderous terms as country's "official secrets". According to it, nothing can possibly constitute an intelligence leak in India because, for a leak to occur, there have to be secrets. Ergo, since nothing is secret in our corridors of power, there possibly cannot be any leak! For some strange and mysterious reason, the visible symbols of power periodically choose to reinforce such risible impressions. Levity aside, however, a few months ago, an official of the stature of the National Security Adviser needlessly told his television host that terrorists were planning to blow up India's nuclear installations. The NSA is not supposed to be available to the media to give them "stories". His brief is to obtain information and act on its basis in the most unobtrusive and quietly efficient way possible. For, the flip side of such alarming passion for transparency is that it sends out the wrong message to the intelligence community as a whole. Equally, it may or may not satisfy people's hunger for news and information; but it certainly gives terror-mongers an idea of where and how their own covers might have blown. Then, it's also not uncommon for former intelligence officials to write their 'candid' autobiographies. To what extent are a former spymaster's exchanges and interactions with those he served - may be a former Prime Minister or Home Minister - of any consequence to the public? <b>Shouldn't there be a clause in their contracts that discourages them from writing 'bare-all' tomes?</b> It is perhaps a result of such cavalier disdain for keeping secrets that we continue to hear of countrywide security alerts on news channels and papers. The reference is to the alleged threat of an Al Qaeda plot to cause explosions in airports in South India. Such information should, in the normative course, be considered classified. Government ought to be able to galvanise its security in all the airports without rushing with the information to mass media and creating scare scenarios.

The far greater danger in issuing 'security alerts' at the drop of a coin - usually it's a hoax phone call; in the latest instance the red alert was triggered by a sweeper in Thiruchirapalli picking up a letter carrying an anonymous threat - is that, sooner or later, these will cease to be taken seriously<b>. It also proves that Intelligence in India remains reactive; instead of sitting in judgement on such scraps of information and knowing about their worth from their own network and sources, they go into a huddle under what in psychoanalytical terms will be described as a "panic attack".</b> This would have been laughable were it not for its serious consequences in shape of threat to human life and public property. <b>Until the security establishment pulls itself up by its bootstraps, perhaps there ought to be television debates on whether India should replace it national bird, which is the peacock, with the chicken.</b>  <!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Guwahati: Three people were killed and at least six other seriously injured in a powerful blast that rocked the Guwahati railway station on Thursday evening.

Police said a couple and a child were killed when the bomb went off around 1730 hrs (IST) in the new parking area for cars and autorickshaws in front of the station.

The injured have been rushed to Mahendra Mohan Choudhury Hospital, Chief Public Relations Officer of North East Frontier Railways, T Rabha said.

"We believe the bomb was planted by the ULFA," Rabha added.

The bomb was kept in a cycle rickshaw near the station.

The blast came three days after a bomb attack on a train in neighbouring West Bengal that killed seven people.

It was also the second blast in the heart of the city.

Fifteen people had died in two blasts in busy markets here on November 5.

There has been a surge in violence in the strife-torn state after the Centre called off a temporary ceasefire with ULFA about three months ago.

The ULFA has been blamed for a series of blasts across Assam in recent weeks that targeted markets and key installations like oil pipelines.

Yogesh Vajpeyi | New Delhi
Marine jihadis, Bangladesh main worry
Al-Qaeda creeps in as master trainer in N-E
Surfacing of marine jihadis on India's terror-scope has given a new sense of urgency to creation of a nodal co-ordination agency at the Centre, top security officials attending the Conference of Director Generals of Police ending here on Friday said. But they saw the export of Muslim fundamentalism and terrorism through Jihadis trained in Bangladesh as a more sinister development of recent origin.

<b>"Pakistan is our known enemy and we have to keep enhancing our capabilities to guard ourselves from cross-border terrorism from it. But our porous border with Bangladesh and the fact that we can't dub it an enemy nation makes the challenge from our eastern neighbour much more formidable," </b>said a senior official.

Reports reaching Indian security agencies also say the<b> Harkat ul-Jihad al-Islami (HuJI), widely regarded as al-Qaeda's operating arm in South Asia, is operating with impunity despite the US listing it as a terrorist group</b>.

"<b>HuJI has been consolidating its position in Bangladesh where it boasts a membership of more than 25,000 activists, of whom at least 3,000 are hardcore. It is running over a dozen training camps in Bangladesh," </b>the official said. Intelligence agencies say its original mission might have been to set up Islamic rule in Bangladesh, but, over the years, its ambitions and geographical spread of its role have grown substantially.

Bangladesh has nearly two-dozen Muslim fundamentalists groups, some of which have increased their operation in India perceptibly. These elements, who triggered a series of blasts on August 17 last year in Bangladesh, are now working under the umbrella of Jamatul Mujahideen that has the responsibility of operational control of jihadis in the northeast. Two of these activists arrested recently-- Badrul Alam in West Bengal and Habibur Rahman Assam-- have reportedly confirmed this.

A distinct evidence of this can be seen in Assam, where Muslim Liberation Tiger of Assam (MULTA) is gaining strength. Security agencies see it as one of the most potent threats to national security.

With illegal migrant Muslims from Bangladesh as its main support base, <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>MULTA is demanding a separate homeland in Assam comprising the districts of Nagaon, Dhubri, Kamrup, Karimganj and Hailakandi to carve out "rightful place for Muslims". </span>The organisation has been linked to ISI, Jamaat-e-Islami, Islamic Chhatra Shibir, Sipahi-e-Sahiba and al-Qaeda.

Another report has indicated that al-Qaeda is training MULTA in Bangladesh, and is channelling arms to the MFO from a temporary HQ that has been set up by the ISI in a mosque at Hathijan in Cox's Bazaar.

<b>The MULTA is also a member of the BIM</b>, a grouping of Muslim fundamentalists whose declared objective is to create a Brihot Bangladesh by merging areas of Assam and Myanmar's Arakan province.
<b>The BIM has been convened at the initiative of the HUJI and is reportedly being chaperoned by the ISI and al-Qaeda. Islamic Security Force of India (ISFI</b>)

Among other Indian Muslim fundamentalist groups backed by Bangladesh in north-east <b>Harkat-ul-Mujahideen is operating in Goalpara, Dhubri, Barpeta districts of Assam while Islamic Security Force of India is engaged in the recruitment of Muslims in Lower Assam.</b>

What has given a much darker twist to this export of terror from Bangladesh is the penetration of the jihadi groups deeper into India, intelligence agencies admit.

Three Bangladesh nationals, who were living under assumed names and arrested by UP Police Terror Cell last month, have reportedly admitted their connection with HuJI.

Investigations have revealed the hand of exported Jehadis in the Hyderabad explosion in 2005 and later in Varanasi blasts. Some security experts suspect their hand in recent Mumbai train blasts also.
