Jihadi Terror Blanket over South India

via B.R.Haran. published on February 4, 2008

The recent report in a section of media on the unearthing of a “Jihadi Training Camp” in the jungles of Dharwad & Uthara Kannada districts of Karnataka might have been a shocking surprise to the people of India in general and the people of South India in particular. But, for those who have been closely watching and analyzing the concept of Jihad and the spread & growth of Islamic Terrorism in India, it is not at all a surprise and seems to be only the tip of the iceberg. The old notion that “the southern part of the country is a haven of peace” has turned out to be a “myth” now. There are two solid advantages in South India for the Jihadi elements. Firstly, the BJP is very weak and the Hindu organizations like RSS and VHP do not have a wider network, as strong as in North India. Secondly, all the political parties (Congress, Dravidian Parties, Communists, Janatha Dal and Telugu Desam Party) are pseudo-secular and appeasers & supporters of Minorities. With these two advantages, the Jihadi elements have been able to spread their wings, establish training camps and improve their communication network with Maoists, Naxals and even LTTE.

It is an open secret that the NDF (National Development Front) has been unleashing terror in Kerala right from day one. This organization is alleged to have been involved in the murdering of many cadres belonging to RSS, BJP & other Hindu Organisations, with the support of CPM goondas and their youth wings DYFI & SFI. Both the then Congress government & the present Communist government have miserably failed to check the violence & terror unleashed by NDF. With the recent release of Abdul Nazar Madhani, leader of PDP in the Coimbatore blast case, the NDF has become stronger and is continuing its terror acts with gumption and ease. The rousing reception given to Madhani, when he came back from jail, by the Congress and Communists has also emboldened this organization to unleash violence in the state. This organization is alleged to receive huge funds from Gulf countries to conduct its operations. It is reported in Kerala media that, Pan Indian & South Asian terror groups are operating across the state. It is believed that, after the banning of SIMI & ISS (Islamic Seva Sangh), the terrorists belonging to those outfits changed their name & operate as National Development Front and Peoples Democratic Party.

Similarly, the Manitha Neethi Pasarai (MNP) has been very active in Coimbatore & Theni districts of Tamil Nadu. Some time in May 2006, a few MNP activists were arrested in Coimbatore for plotting to murder a Hindu activist and to plant bombs in crowded areas. MNP also indulges in conversion and is conducting classes in the name of ‘Arivagam’ in Theni, to brain wash new converts especially Scheduled Castes, train them and recruit them in to Jihad squads, as reported by the well known columnist Ms. Jaya Menon in the ‘Indian Express’ dated 26th July 2006. the disturbing factor is that, both Theni & Coimbatore are close to Kerala borders and hence MNP can easily coordinate with NDF. When SIMI was banned, its TN Unit changed its name as Tamilaga Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam (TMMK) and when Tamil Nadu government banned ‘Al Umma’ after the Coimbatore serial blasts; the outfit is alleged to have changed its name as Manitha Neethi Pasarai (MNP) and continued its shady activities. Previously, it was SIMI & AU and now, it is TMMK & MNP. Only the names are different, but the activities remain the same. In December 2006, the Jihadis belonging to these groups have murdered Kumar Pandian, Hindu Munnani activist in Thenkasi and the TMMK president of Tenkasi, Sait Khan survived the retaliation. After a few days the militants attacked Pandian’s brother and he sustained grievous injuries. Again on 14th August TMMK activists attacked Hindu Munnani cadres and murdered three of them (all brothers of Manoj Pandian). In the retaliation three Jihadis also got killed. Ten days back, on the 25th of January, the Jihadis tried to blast RSS office at Thirunelveli and they also murdered a BJP local leader Raj Pandian. Recently on the eve of Gujarat Chief Minister Mr.Modi’s visit, the TMMK General Secretary Hyder Ali issued an open threat saying, “Modi would not get back to Gujarat, alive”! Ironically, the TMMK enjoys the support of the ruling DPA alliance.

Likewise, the KFD (Karnataka for Dignity) has also spread its tentacles through out Karnataka to the extent of conducting Jihadi Training Camp. Their growth was first indicated by the violence, which they unleashed in Bangalore early last year, in the name of protests against Iraq President Saddam Hussain’s hanging. It was reported last years itself that this organization is aiding & abetting the terrorists from organizations like LeT in executing their missions like the attack on the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore. This has been proved now! These militants are also responsible for the murder of Sukhanand Shetty, BJP Taluk President in Mangalore last year. The vehicle used by these militants in that operation was bearing a TN registration number, which points to the fact that KFD is connected with MNP. Also, the entire coastal belt from Calicut in Kerala to Karwar in Karnataka seems to be under the control of Islamic militants, which points to the coordination between KFD & NDF.

With regards to Andhra Pradesh, the strength of the Muslim organizations is an open secret and the twin cities of Hyderabad & Secunderabad have born the brunt of terror & violence many times in the past, the recent ones being the Mecca Masjid Blasts and the Twin Blasts in Lumbini Park & Gokul Chat Eatery. The AIMIM in Hyderabad is also alleged to have been helping the Jihadi elements imported from Pakisdtan & Bangladesh. The Pakistani ISI & Bangladeshi Huji hav made inroads deep inside Andhra Pradesh and developed close contacts with the naxalite outfits and has formed many ‘sleeper cells’, as per media reports.

All these Islamic Outfits have joined and formed a new outfit called Popular Front of India (PFI), which was launched on 16th February 2007 in Bangalore. As per the ‘Q’ Branch Police of Tamil Nadu, the decision to launch Popular Front of India (PFI) has been taken at a conference of KFD, MNP & NDF held on 22nd November 2006 at Calicut. The leaders of PFI include K.M.Shareef, President of KFD, Gulam Muhammed, leader of MNP and Abdur Rahman Baqari of NDF and they have decided to confine their activities to South India. The PFI was launched in the guise of coordinating & strengthening grass root level developmental activities through out the country. Though they have announced their agenda as Democracy & Social Service, the Police feel that they may propagate their fundamental and hardliner ideologies. One dangerous aspect in PFI is that the majority of the leaders in this new front are erstwhile office bearers of SIMI. There have been no reports from the police or intelligence agencies and even from the media regarding the activities of all these outfits after the formation of PFI in February 2007. It is almost after one full year, we have come across the detecting of a Jihadi Training Camp and incidentally, in all the four states, the rulers are Muslim Appeasers (Congress in AP, Commies in Kerala, DMK in TN and till recently JD(S) in Karnataka).

Apart from targeting innocent people, Temples, Hindu organizations and their leaders, these terror outfits have also threatened to attack Vidan Sabhas, IT Majors, MNCs and even Nuclear installations. So, it is the duty & responsibility of the concerned state governments and the Central government to ensure that the terrorists are crushed with iron hands, so that, the people live in peace!
