Suspected Islamic State Terrorists caught near Kolkata; planned to blast Tarakeshwar Temple during Maha Shivratri pilgrimage.


HENB | Kolkata | February 28, 2016:: The state of West Bengal becomes gradually the most preferable terror hub of the Islamic State operatives and other Islamic outfits. A sinister plot hatched by global terror outfit Islamic State (ISIS) to orchestrate terror attack in West Bengal was busted with the arrest of Ashif Ahmed, an operative of the group from Durgapur on Friday, said officials.

As per reports, Ashif during interrogation revealed a plot to attack famous Tarakeshwar temple in Hooghly district. The terror attack would be most fatal at the time of Maha Shivratri festival when lakhs of Hindu devotees are usually assembled in the famous Taraknath Temple at Tarakeshwar every year.

The detailed plan and photographs of the temple was reportedly passed by Ashif to Zari, another IS operative. A mobile provided by Zari was also seized from Ashif’s home in Dhanekhali area, said police.

Both Ashif and Zari were in constant touch with ISIS’s second-in-command in Syria named Yusuf alias Sufi Arman, said officials.

Ashif’s arrest by NIA from the state has jolted the security establishment. The Islamic state is now feared to have penetrated deep inside the minority community in the state.

A recent survey had showed that after Jammu and Kashmir the most number of internet searches on ISIS originates in West Bengal.

An alert is likely to be issued in famous  Shiva Temples in West Bengal during Maha Shivaratri festival to avert any untoward incidents further.

    Animalist Jihadis are not interested in this earthly life. They will do whatever it takes to reserve a seat in their hallucinated heaven of 72 virgins. The suicide bombers and Mullahs fall in this category. They have an excellent knowledge of the Quran and Hadith. They stay away from theological wars and confine themselves in the twilight darkness of Islam. Beheading and raping Kafirs are their favorite hobbies. They are dangerous to humanity but honestly follow Jihadi terror rules. These Mullahs do not compromise with Islamic laws. They don’t respect anything or anybody including their mothers. Hope the world unites & wipes these Jihadi beasts from the face of mother earth and will let the world live in peace. Wipe them out en-masse since we don’t want our stupid legal system to drag on for decades. The brutal Jihadi justice is the answer & I am sure the sickulars, anti-national & Owaisi brothers and Khans & Naiks will agree.

    HYDERABAD: Influential Islamic seminary Jamia Nizamia on Friday issued a fatwa declaring that reason and Islamic faith do not allow Muslims to chant the slogan `Bharat Mata ki jai’.The fatwa, which is an Islamic cleric’s jurisprudential opinion, came after Syed Ghulam Samdani Ali Quadri, a religious figure from the Old City here, approached the seminary for an answer three days ago. Explaining the rationale behind the ruling, Mufti Azeemuddin, who heads the Darul Ifta, or fatwa centre of the seminary, wrote that according to the principles of reason, only a human gives birth to a human and treating the land of bharat as a mother is against reason (Strange that a Jihadi talks about reason while their actions are always totally opposed to common sense & reason).

    The mother of a human is human. No piece of land and no animal and no other object gives birth to humans an excerpt from the fatwa reads.Describing this process as the law of nature the mufti further wrote, this is why calling the land of Bharat as mother is against reason. The religion (of Islam) also says the same thing. The seminary clarified that those who wish to treat the land of Bharat as their mother, then this is the person’s individual religious belief and that the person cannot force others (to believe in this).
    The Mufti concluded by writing that the Muslims of Bharat love the country.
    Commenting on what prompted him to seek a fatwa, Quadri, who heads the religious organisation Seerat-un-Nabi Academy in Qazipura, said that the slogan finds no mention in the Constitution and should not be considered as the only means of expressing love for the country.
