Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s name figures in leaked Secret US embassy cable dated 17 June 2009 for reason that should make us worry.

According to leaked Wikileak cable – one Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Taiyyiba(LET) member Shafiq Khafa with his aid Hussain were possibly preparing for operation against Narendra Modi in early June last year. They were also planning tasks of establishment of a training camp, and unspecified work involving a car according to leaked cable. Hussein would coordinate his activities with an India-based colleague identified as Sameer.

The entire cable related to Narendra Modi/Shafiq Khafa that was sent to the related U.S.office on 17 June 2009 is presented below:

17. (S//NF) SCA – India – LT member Shafiq Khafa possibly preparing for operations: Tearline reports, &Hussein, an India-based Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LT) member, continued operational planning on three tasks in early June. The tasks were associated with a possible operation against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendar Modi, the establishment of a training camp, and unspecified work involving a car. Hussein would coordinate his activities with an India-based colleague identified as Sameer.8

18. (S//REL TO USA, FVEY) Separate tearline indicates, &Pakistan-based Shafiq Khafa prepared in mid-June with India-based associate S J for possible operations in India. Khafa was looking for information on possible training sites in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Kerala.8

19. (S//NF) DS/TIA/ITA notes earlier credible tearline suggests Khafa,s network is striving to stand up two teams in southern India that rely on the support of LT members based in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Nepal. Although specific details of planned LT attacks remain unknown, late-May intelligence indicates Khafa,s cells were engaged in surveillance activities of potential targets, likely in southern India. Early-May reporting further suggests Kerala or Tamil Nadu may be used as a base of operations following the establishment of a facilitation team in Sri Lanka, with the estimated time of completion for setting up the facilitation route and camps to be two to three months.

So it can be concluded that Mr. Modi must be protected well. He could be very much on the target of evil terror organization based in Pakistan even now. Looking at the cable, it can be also concluded that Mr. Modi’s security team should work with extra attention when any tour in southern India is planned and organized.
