Congress, BJP and the so-called Hindu terror-III

Congress, BJP and the so-called Hindu terror-III

Nothing new in the stories of HT: Headlines Today has not found out anything new, as now I have found out that it is just rehashing the stuff that was already circulated during November-December 2008. Perhaps, HT channel was not at that time or not popular. In www.indiainteracts.com, I have posted the following how the Congress colluded with the media to plant such half-baked, sensational stuff before the elections.

None of the links work today!: “The NDTV, NEWS-X and CNN-IBN have been also adopting the same pattern blowing hot and cold’, thus I wrote on 16-11-2008, but today (17-07-2010), when I tried none of the above links are working with the following message:

Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested URL: /NewsDtls.aspx

Therefore, as readers and Indiand we cannot keep quite for this type of propaganda.

HT picks up the old stuff in July 2010: Thus, it is evident that the TV-channels, particularly, TIMES-NOW had removed the stuff put on in the websites subsequently for the best reasons known to to them. Now, Headlines Today rehashes the same stuff, with the claim that they had exclusively accessed material – in the form of video tapes and witness accounts available with investigators – that puts elements within the Sangh Parivar under the scanner[1].

Were Hindus fools to colloboate with SIMI to bomb Muslim targets or SIMI was so idiotic to help Hinduss? Ironically, in the narco tests, Purohit says Muslim groups helped him bomb SIMI office in Malegaon[2] and the ATS was taken aback and tried to suppress the facts. Not only that even the RDX was obtained through the Jihadi terrorists across the borders through PK and IOK. Sankaracharya was reportedly helped in getting the RDX, as he was having influence over POK Jihadis.

How Bangladeshi nationals including oned woman detained turned to Hindu terrorists? The INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK reported as follows: Ajmer blast: People detained for questioning, 12 Oct 2007, 0851 hrs IST, INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK:

“NEW DELHI: Police has detained 3-4 people for questioning in its probe into the Ajmer dargah blasts, Times Now reported. According to the channel, police is also working upon the sketches of the suspects. Police sources said that detentions were made based upon the suspicious movements of these individuals. Two among those detained are Bangladeshi nationals and one is a woman”. What happened to those Bangaladeshis?

How the same Digvijay Singh and media speak the same stuff after three years? Digvijay Singh accused Sangh Parivar as follows in 2008:

Digvijay Singh equates VHP, Bajrang Dal to SIMI

Nov 14, 2008 http://news.outlookindia.com/item.aspx?633203

Bhopal, Nov 14 (PTI) Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh equated right wing organisations Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to the banned Students Islami Movement of India (SIMI).

“These (SIMI, VHP and Bajrang Dal) outfits were all involved in similar anti-national activities,” Singh, AICC General Secretary alleged.

Talking informally to reporters, Singh said that whether it was ‘Muslim terrorism’ or ‘Hindu terrorism’, both worked to harm the nation’s security.

When asked if the Bajrang Dal should be banned, he said that it would be much better if the RSS which was the fountainhead of the Bajrang Dal was outlawed.

Singh said that there were only five recognised Peeths of Shankaracharyas in the country but the VHP had made many Shankaracharyas.

“The Maharashtra ATS should be congratulated for exposing the role of right wing terrorists in the Malegaon blasts,” Singh said.

The former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said that he alone in the Congress is capable to take on the Sangh parivar by talking consistently of Hindu terrorism, he was defending other state Congress leaders who are mum on right wing leaders.

Now, again he comes into picture and talks nonsence in the TV-channels[3]. Now, He claimed that the first instance of Hindu terror came to light in Bhopal in December 2002. During his tenure as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Singh said that the administration managed to track some of the sleeper cells and individuals involved in these activities, including bomb-making[4].  He also alleged that Madhya Pradesh Government, ‘for some strange reason’, closed investigation in two high-profile murder cases of Sangh functionaries Sunil Joshi and Ramchandra Kalangsara.

Conclusion: I just reproduce the conclusion as follows, which is applicable now also: The collusion of ATS with the media has been evident and it is very dangerous in the secular context of India. Moreover, the twisting, distorting and  misinterpreting of news reported and reporting with blatant lies, as a careful viewer, reader and observer could note from the media coverage, is unethical, immoral and against any journalistic code. Sensational reporting could not go to the extent of scandalous, as the politicization of the issue has not been touched upon, because of the elections. The political leaders could talk anything and get away with it. As the PM responded on the Malegaon blast on board in 2006, he could not keep silence about what has been going on now in the same issue. The media has tried to saffronize the terror from green. Ironically, the allegations of the saffron terror is inspired from the green and even purchased from green, if the media reports are to be taken as “gospel truth” or “Koranic revelation”.

If the Hindu ideologists start interpreting that as the PM has been a Sikh, the defence minister a Christian and the entire media has been Christian and Mohammedan and consistently anti-Hindu, these things are happening, how the others would take it? Of course, above all the Sonia factor has been there! Now all the secular elements have been keeping quite or playing cautious role realizing the grave situation, as it might misfire in any direction.

Anyway, a common man, a careful viewer, critical reader and sensitive observer could easily point out the double standards of the media, politicians, ideologists and other secular intellectuals. Though, very often, people are blamed for forgetting the past, just-past events, wherever, the impact has been there, they actually do not forget and such imprints continue to make them sensitive. Therefore, the hypocritical, duplicitous and two-faced standards of any discipline would be exposed. Hence, it is better, they behave responsibly, instead of treading a dangerous path of manipulations, meddling and even fraudulent ways.

ATS and TV channels solve all bomb-blast cases in India!

July 17, 2010

ATS and TV channels solve all bomb-blast cases in India!

VEDAPRAKASH

ATS’ skill of cracking codes has been astonishing: In my earlier posting[1], I tried to show how the media has been getting details from ATS and reporting sensationally. Today morning (16-11-2008), the same channels tried to establish as if the so-called accused have only carried out such bombing not only in Malegaon, but also in Ajmer, Hyderabad and other places. The skill of ATS (Anti Terror Squad) of Maharastra has been record breaking in clearing off almost all pending bomb-blast cases in India with astonishing speed. Even the FBI, CIA, KGB and other international investigative teams might have been so thrilled to note the newly-developed skills of India and planning to outsource their services. The moment Obama takes over, suitable Indian-origin American might be nominated specifically to co-operate and collaborate with Indian counterparts.

Narco-tests, Brain-mapping method of questioning to be learnt from Indians:  The marvellous, fantastic and amazing results achieved by the ATS might have made the American sleuths grimace and shrug their shoulders  murmuring with usual outbursts of “fuck off”, “Son of bitch” and so on and hotly debating with their sexy-counterparts in their headquarters. In a forth-coming Hollywood or Bollywood film, such events might be incorporated. Though, the media and ATS know its uselessness legally, they continue to sensationalize, exaggerate and dramatize the “unknown” eyewitness account with the stunning, revealing, shocking revelations, confession etc., of Lt. Colonel Srikant Prohit!

Amazing technique of putting everything under “scanner” and “radar”: As the ATS has utilizing all scanners and radars, the shooting down of an IAF helicopter killing one officer in Chattisgarh[2] could not be scanned or monitored by radar[3]. Anyway, the scanning process has been successful in getting evidences from Colonel Pruohit who has   confessed everything about the bomb-blasts[4].  Ironically, the wreckage of earlier missing copter[5] was also fund on 13-11-2008!

The secret of success of Obama and ATS: The coincidence of the success of Obama and ATS has been the TV-channel campaigning and selling of hot-stuff. While Obama spent millions of dollars, ATS is getting from the TV-channels for feeding their sensational news. The way in which they have been getting details from the ATS and starting broadcasting immediately with suggestive interviews, prompting clippings and exiting news-casts have been amazing. As the “Saffron terror” is picking up, the sensex figures are forgotten.

Pakistan might request Secular India to send ATS immediately: So far RDX has been phenomenal with the Islamic / Jihad terrorists, but now the Prohit would browbeat them. Ironically, he could not only procure RDX, get it converted to bombs only through the Mohammmedans, but plant with a woman-Sanyasi, as the Men of Islam or Hindu religio is unfit to do it. Pakistan media has been so thrilled with the headlines stating that the “Hindu military Officer” has been involved in bombing[6]. As Pakistan has also been infested with such bomb-menace, it might request India to send the ATS, so that all the bomb-blast cases of Pakistan could be cleared off immediately within a week or month.

RDX with the “Hindu terrorists”: The Hindu’s report[7] has been dubious[8]: The ATS Special prosecuter Ajay Misar told the Nasik court, ” It has been learnt that some portion of the RDX was given to a person named Bhagawan, to be used in the Samjhauta blast. Some of it was used for Malegoan blast. However, this aspect is yet to be investigated. It will come to light over the next three days”! Lt Colonel Srikant Purohit allegedly procured[9] 60 kgs of RDX from Jammu and Kashmir in 2006, a part of which is suspected to have been used in the Malegaon blast and also in the Samjhauta Express train explosions, the prosecution told a court in Nashik on Saturday (November 15), giving a new dimension to the ongoing Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) probe. Purohit, arrested in connection with the Malegaon blast was on Saturday produced before a Nashik court which granted further police custody till November 18 for detailed questioning. The Army officer, among ten arrested in connection with the Malegaon blast, has been subjected to brain-mapping and narco-analysis tests. Special Prosecutor for the ATS, Ajay Misar told the court that a witness submitted that in 2006 Purohit had claimed he had 60 kgs of RDX in his possession which he had got from Jammu and Kashmir. The RDX is suspected to have been used in the September 29 Malegaon blasts that left six dead and the twin explosions in Samjhauta train last year that killed 68 people. Purohit gave a portion of the RDX to one Bhagwan who is suspected to have used in Samjhauta Express blast, Misar said.

How RDX reached from Kashmir: Purohit, 36, who was with Military Intelligence, had told the authorities that he had thrown RDX into the Jhelum River, the special counsel said. However, it is suspected that he transported the RDX to Deolali in Nashik, he said.  Interestingly, Purohit had interacted with the ATS in the past and in 2005 had even given a talk on operational techniques and strategies to them. The investigators suspect that he is closely linked to a little known right wing group Abhinav Bharat. Purohit is also alleged to have conducted an arms and explosives training camp for members of this group in Panchmarhi in Madhya Pradesh between October 16 and 21 2006, Misar said. The ATS also told the court that it was investigating the source of the RDX which Purohit had obtained.  The Public prosecutor told the court that they had found evidence of links between arrested Sadhvi Pragya Thakur Singh and self-styled guru Dayanand Pandey. The ATS has found during the course of the investigations that Pandey had introduced Purohit to Ramji Kalsangra, who is wanted in the Malegaon blast, Misar said.

Torture of Prohit denied: The court dismissed an application filed by Purohit”s father-in-law alleging torture in police custody after the army official denied it to the court. Also medical records did not show any evidence of physical torture. Meanwhile, the Haryana Railway police team is in Mumbai and will interrogate Purohit and Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur. It was established that the suitcase bombs, which blew up two bogies of the Indo-Pak Samjhauta Express train in February last year, were assembled in Indore.  The Haryana Railway police said their investigations in the Samjhauta probe led them to Indore after clues that the suitcase-bombs were assembled in Indore. Haryana Railway police also questioned Dayanand Pandey in connection with the Samjhauta Express blast. The Haryana Railway police said that it was a ‘routine investigation”.

‘I wanted to avenge SIMI”s attacks”:  The narco-analysis test conducted on Malegaon blast accused and mastermind Lieutenant Colonel Srikant Purohit has revealed the shocking information[10] that during his tenure in the Military Intelligence wing of the Army, he had utilised all information he received to plan the Malegaon blast. Purohit also confessed that he conducted Malegaon blast to avenge the attacks of Simi. During the narco-analysis conducted in Bangalore last week, Purohit revealed that he had gathered information about a local group in Malegaon which specialised in assembling bombs. This group also assisted terror outfit Simi in their attacks[11]. Purohit goes on to confess that he had convinced the bomb-making group to assist him in the attacks which he planned along with Sadhvi Pragya and her mentor Mahant Amritanand alias Dayanand Pandey. When asked as to why he placed the bombs in motorcycles, Purohit said he wanted to avenge Simi’s attacks and use similar tactics so as to mislead the police. Purohit said, “While serving as an officer in the Military Intelligence, I was assigned the job of collecting information on terror outfits in the Maharashtra region. I zeroed in on a group in Malegaon, which had helped Simi.” Purohit further said, “I got in touch with this group and convinced them to assemble bombs for our outfit. I even resorted to threatening this group to do this work. We had planned on carrying out a terror strike at Malegaon this year and the planning was undertaken by Thakur and her mentor Pandey along with me.” Purohit also said, “The bombs that were finally assembled were very similar to the ones used during the Malegaon blasts of 2006. We also decided to use the same modus operandi by planting the bombs on motorcycles. We wanted to avenge the attacks by Simi and secondly we thought by using similar tactics, we could mislead the police.”

Purohit says Muslim groups helped him bomb SIMI office in Malegaon: Though, the above TV-channel did not name the group that helped manufacturing bombs for Prohit, the Times of India reports specifically as follows[12]:

“MUMBAI: Lt Colonel Shrikant Purohit, who shocked the country by turning out to be the first serving officer to have been allegedly involved in a terror plot, has now left the investigating agencies completely baffled by the statements he made during the narco-test. According to sources, Purohit told his interrogators that he had roped in some members of Malegaon”s Muslim population to assemble the bomb and plant it near the SIMI office in the weavers” town on September 29 this year. The Army officer said the logistics for the blast were provided by fanatical Hindus, according to sources close to the investigation.

During the second narco-test that he was subjected to in Bangalore on Wednesday, Purohit, sources said, admitted that he monitored the Malegaon operation at the instance of a Faridabad-based spiritual mentor of Abhinav Bharat who was exhorting his followers to retaliate for “atrocities against Hindus,'” including the murder of VHP”s Swami Lakshmanananda Saraswati in Orissa. Investigators have so far not been able to identify the guru. Investigators said Purohit”s answers indicated that the Hindu conspirators in the Malegaon operation did not know what their Muslim counterparts were doing. If true, they also speak of his success in infiltrating not only Hindu organisations but also Muslim groups.
“Hindu terrorist” recruited and procured bombs from “Islamic terrorists”! Results of narco-tests are not admissible in court as evidence. Their reliability has been called to question also because the replies are in response to leading questions, and the subject is semi-conscious. In fact, it is also felt that that someone with an army training like Purohit can beat the test. If Purohit was misleading his handlers, this could be to save his fellow Hindutva radicals. If that was his intention, he did a good job of it. During the narco-test, Purohit gave details of how he recruited Muslims for the Malegaon plot. According to sources, he said that RDX used in the blast was procured from a colony in Pune which is inhabited by Kashmiri Muslims. The officer claimed to have directed the bombmakers to the colony, who assembled the device in Nasik”s Bhadrakali area. The Army officer is reported to have said that the entire operation cost only Rs 25,000.
Bihari police comes to Maharastra: No problem here!: According to railway police sources, the team may meet Thakur and other accused arrested by ATS. Thakur had taken ‘deeksha” from Swami Awdeshanand Giri, Mahamandleshwar of Joona Akhara, who has a big ashram at Ambala Cantonment. Bharti Arora, a member of Special Investigating Team probing the Samjhauta Express blast[13], had then claimed a vital clue was found in this regard. The railway police had also taken a few persons into custody for interrogation but no concrete lead was found. In the mean time, the prime accused in the Malegaon blasts case, Purohit, appeared before the Nashik court today and rubbished claims made by his lawyer that he was tortured by the Anti Terror Squad (ATS) police[14]. Purohit was produced before the court as the ATS sought to extend his remand.  The Armyman in his narco analysis has confessed to wanting to avenge terror attacks carried out by Students Islamic Movement of India (Simi). The Narco tests, though not admissible in court, could throw up vital clues for investigators. Purohit revealed that other alleged conspirators, Thakur and Pandey, who are now under arrest, were also involved in planning the attack. Purohit met the Sadhvi through Pandey, sources revealed. He also said that Pandey was also involved in the Ajmer and Nanded blasts where more than 500 people were trained to carry out the attacks. Some of what Purohit said about the role of Pandey has been corroborated by the ATS in court. Pandey is now emerging as a key link as the ATS told the court that Pandey fixed the meeting between Purohit and Ramji Kalsangra. The ATS also said that Pandey told Purohit to arrange for explosives and received money from Abhinav Bharat treasurer. The revelations could help piece together the Malegaon puzzle. However, ATS is questioning four principal players in the Malegaon case. This includes Col Ajay Rahirkar, Bhonsala Military School”s former principal. Rahikar is said to have transferred huge amount of funds to Pandey”s account[15].

Lt Colonel Purohit involved in Samjhauta blast? If the stunning new revelations in the Malegaon blast investigations prove to be correct, Lieutenant Colonel Purohit, the serving army officer implicated in the blast, may have sourced RDX explosives for the Samjhauta Express blast of 2007, thus the NDTV started unveiling the story[16]. However, there are several unanswered questions at this stage, even though for the moment, the court has agreed to grant investigators three additional days custody of the Colonel.The public prosecutor told the court in Nashik that Purohit was the man who sourced army RDX for Samjhauta train blast of 2007. They claimed that he sourced 60 kg of Army”s RDX when he was posted in Deolali in Nasik in 2006. He didn”t turn it over to the Army depot, but claimed he had thrown it into Jhelum river.The RDX was handed over to man called Bhagwan, who used it for Samjhauta Express blasts. All the information is based on eyewitness statement of a fellow Army man. The court was also told that Purohit is the mastermind of the Malegaon blasts. These sensational claims got the ATS the desired result. Purohit”s custody for another three days. But serious questions remain over the claims made given that no trace of RDX was found in the Samjhauta Express explosions. The final mix of explosives remains a mystery since a new combination was used. Initially, the usual suspects, Lashkar, HuJi, were blamed, but nothing was proven. Moreover, storing RDX for over a year without being detected is difficult. Police sources say that what is said in court shouldn”t be given too much credence, since claims are often amplified in order to extend his custody, but even by those standards, these claims are bound to raise questions about how much of all this can be backed by evidence.

Prurohit linked to Ajmer Sharif blast?  In what comes as a sensational new finding (as reported today morning 16-11-2008) in the Malegaon blast probe, TIMES NOW[17] has learnt that the terror network is wider that previously thought. A day after the Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) claimed that the alleged mastermind being the Malegaon blast – Lt Col Prasad Purohit was closely involved in the Samjhauta train blasts, sources have now told TIMES NOW that there could be a possible link between Purohit and the blasts at Mecca Masjid Hyderabad and Ajmer Sharif in Rajasthan.

Mastermind of Ajmer blast: About Ajmer blast, there were several other theories and accusations[18]. In fact, originally, it was linked with HUJI- terrorists[19]. During the Narco analysis of Lt Col Purohit, he revealed that the Ajmer Blast was masterminded by Swami Amritanand and that everything had happened at his behest, told sources. TIMES NOW also learnt that Purohit could have played a very vital role in executing the blast, added sources. Intelligence agencies are now comparing the modus operandi of Abhinav Bharat with the blasts at Ajmer Sharif and Mecca Masjid.  Previously, it was said the strike at Mecca Masjid was the handiwork of a Bangladeshi module with some local help. But after a local court acquitted four youths last week after they were suspected to be behind the blast, suspicion has been raised about the entire line of probe. However, there is no confirmation whether the Rajasthan police team will come to Mumbai to interrogate Swamiji and the Colonel. Two persons were killed and 28 injured on October 11 when a bomb went off inside the complex of the highly-revered sufi shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer.

Shivraj Patil knows the possible attack? The strike had come just days after Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil had warned of a possible attack during this year”s festive season. The bomb was hidden inside a tiffin box and placed in the main courtyard called Aasthan-e-Noor, just outside the 750-year-old mausoleum of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. Sources in the ATS told TIMES NOW that during Purohit”s narco-analysis test, he has specifically taken Swami Amritanand”s name. And upon further questioning, he said that the Swami was responsible for executing the blast at Ajmer Sharif. This revelation of Purohit”s alleged links to the other blasts comes just a day after the ATS claimed his involvement in the Samjhuata train blast of Feb 2007. The ATS said that it was Purohit who had sourced the RDX which was used in the blasts.

‘Historic Mecca Masjid’ blast: The Abhinav Bharat of which, the trio of Dayanand Pandey, Sadhvi Pragya Thakur and Lt Col Purohit are also linked to the Mecca Masjid blasts.  On May 18, 2007, nine people were killed and many others injured when a bomb went off at the historic Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad. The bomb exploded around noon when thousands of people were gathered in the mosque for Friday prayers. Police had also recovered two unexploded bombs from the vicinity of the mosque.

“Accused Pandey master of disguise”: That Dayananda Pandey has become a respectable saint is described like this by TIMES-NOW[20]. With each passing day the Malegaon probe seems to be getting murkier as Dayanand Pandey, alias Sudhakar Dwivedi alias Swami Amritanand Dev Teerth Maharaj, who was arrested in Kanpur for alleged involvement in the Malegaon blast, comes through as an ambitious man who rose quickly in the past few years and had quite a few contacts among politicians, retired bureaucrats and Armymen. Sources said 35-year-old Pandey, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, first tried to establish himself at Kanpur. He then shifted to Varanasi and reached Jammu in 2005-06, where he floated the Sarvagya Peeth. The original Sarvagya Peeth is in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and investigators believe Pandey opened the Peeth in Jammu on his own. Now, investigators reveal that Pandey is a master of disguise, a smooth operator and has even worked in the Air Force for five years. Sources also revealed that Pandey is a double MA and is tech-savvy. Pandey is believed to have told Mumbai Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) sleuths that he joined the Air Force wing of National Defence Academy in 1989 but dropped out in 1990. He claimed that he had Masters Degree from Lucknow University, in philosophy, history and geography. Investigators say initial interrogation has revealed that Pandey is a master of disguise and had four separate identities and names at different times and places.

In Kanpur, he is known as Sudhakar Dwivedi, in Faridabad, he is known as Swami Amritanand Dev Teerth, and in Jammu he is known as Shankarcharya or Peethadheeshwar. The Sarvagya Peeth website refers to Pandey as Jagat Guru Shankarcharya Swami Amritanand Dev Teerth of Sharda Sarwagya Peeth. Investigators say Pandey is a self-proclaimed Shankarcharya and has no association with other established Peeths in India[21]. Sources at the Faridabad temple said Pandey used to shuttle between the establishments in Jammu, Faridabad and Kanpur. At Faridabad, he had about 50 visitors on any given day that he was there. Most of the visitors came through appointments and many would sit through the night till early morning to meet him, said officials at the temple. Police believe that Lt Col SP Purohit, one of the suspected masterminds of the Malegaon blast, too met the Swami at this temple.

Mastermind or masterminds? Earlier in the case of Islamic / Jihadic terrorism, the NDTV reporter[22] was arguing fantastically about the discovery of “mastermind” by the Police and investigative agencies in different parts of India. So the TV-channels started ridiculing as to whether there had been one ‘mastermind” or many “masterminds” found by the police? Now also in the stories of ATS and fabulous reportings of TV-channels, not only the “masterminds” and even the “targeted persons” changed several times. Unnecessarily, many respectable Swamijis were drawn and shown in the channels as “criminals”, “bombers” and “murderers”. Shamefully, the same channels, never shown who was the Swami Lakshmanananda and why he was killed? They never bothered about the four killed along with him including a woman-sanyasi, and a youth. None know their faces. But take the case of the allegedly raped nun, who has been evaded! She has become international figure and she would be declared as “Saint” immediately by the Vatican! This is hypocrisy!

The NDTV, NEWS-X and CNN-IBN have been also adopting the same pattern blowing hot and cold.

Conclusion: The collusion of ATS with the media has been evident and it is very dangerous in the secular context of India. Moreover, the twisting, distorting and  misinterpreting of news reported and reporting with blatant lies, as a careful viewer, reader and observer could note from the media coverage, is unethical, immoral and against any journalistic code. Sensational reporting could not go to the extent of scandalous, as the politicization of the issue has not been touched upon, because of the elections. The political leaders could talk anything and get away with it. As the PM responded on the Malegaon blast on board in 2006, he could not keep silence about what has been going on now in the same issue. The media has tried to saffronize the terror from green. Ironically, the allegations of the saffron terror is inspired from the green and even purchased from green, if the media reports are to be taken as “gospel truth” or “Koranic revelation”.

If the Hindu ideologists start interpreting that as the PM has been a Sikh, the defence minister a Christian and the entire media has been Christian and Mohammedan and consistently anti-Hindu, these things are happening, how the others would take it? Of course, above all the Sonia factor has been there! Now all the secular elements have been keeping quite or playing cautious role realizing the grave situation, as it might misfire in any direction.

Anyway, a common man, a careful viewer, critical reader and sensitive observer could easily point out the double standards of the media, politicians, ideologists and other secular intellectuals. Though, very often, people are blamed for forgetting the past, just-past events, wherever, the impact has been there, they actually do not forget and such imprints continue to make them sensitive. Therefore, the hypocritical, duplicitous and two-faced standards of any discipline would be exposed. Hence, it is better, they behave responsibly, instead of treading a dangerous path of manipulations, meddling and even fraudulent ways.

[18] Ajmer blast: People detained for questioning

12 Oct 2007, 0851 hrs IST, INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK

NEW DELHI: Police has detained 3-4 people for questioning in its probe into the Ajmer dargah blasts, Times Now reported. According to the channel, police is also working upon the sketches of the suspects.
Police sources said that detentions were made based upon the suspicious movements of these individuals. Two among those detained are Bangladeshi nationals and one is a woman.

Sources also told the channel that the crude bomb used in the blast contained ball bearings and sharp iron wedges.
Meanwhile, a damaged mobile phone found at the site of the explosion has triggered suspicion among security agencies that the device could have been used to set off the blast.

The damaged mobile phone has been sent for forensic examination to ascertain its International Mobile

Equipment Identity (IMEI) number which could help investigators identify its user, Union Home Ministry sources said.

What has made the security agencies suspicious about the possibility of using a cell phone to trigger the explosion was that a similar method was deployed to set off the blast in Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad in May this year.

A bomb blast just outside the sanctum sanctorum of India”s best known Sufi shrine at Ajmer killed was triggered just ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr weekend. The strike came days after Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil had warned of a possible attack during this year”s festive season.

The bomb was hidden inside a tiffin box and placed in the main courtyard called Aasthan-e-Noor , just outside the 750-year-old mausoleum of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, the Sufi shrine revered not only by Muslims in South Asia but people of all faiths.

Two persons were killed and 17 others injured when a low-intensity blast took place at the shrine of the 13th century Sufi shrine in Ajmer on Thursday evening.

[21] This type of remark is irrelevant, incompetent and irresponsible by the media persons, as in Hyderabad, a Mohammedan claims that he is a “Jagartguru” implying Sankaracharya.

[22] Srinivasan Jain was asking irrelevant questions and the AC-Crime, Mumbai warned him not to confuse the issue.
