“Saffron Terror” This was a bigger conspiracy hatched by then Congress Government and its senior ministers. Never in the history of India did anyone drive Communal wedge as deep and in such a conspiratorial manner against Modi & fundamentalist right wing hindu organisation, as Sonia Gandhi led Congress Party, from Anti-Godhra campaign to the invention of “Saffron Terror“, to Fake Encounters with religious slurs, Congress had a cloaked dagger. The concept of ‘Saffron Terror‘ is nothing but a political conspiracy against the Hindus, against Modi, against RSS and its senior leaders.
Perhaps under the pressure from a Catholic Sonia Gandhi, the UPA Chair person and the guiding force of ruling Congress party in India to equate the uncontrollable Jihadi Islamic Force and the Separatist Christian-Maoist nexus with the right wing pro-active Hindu force in India by notorious word ‘Saffron Terror‘.
A series of low-intensity terror attacks targeting Muslims were conducted to create a “Saffron Terror” background, & 26/11 was the culmination. Hindu extremist organizations have been accused of involvement in terrorist attacks like 2006 Malegaon blasts, Mecca Masjid bombing (Hyderabad), Samjhauta Express bombings and the Ajmer Sharif Dargah blast. In this post, we will focus on each such terror allegations Hindu Fundamentalist.
The issue in essence is simple, The then Congress government claims its investigation primarily carried out during UPA 2 when P Chidambaram was home minister led them to the conclusion that various groups with links to RSS had a role in 4 key terror attacks between 2007 and 2008. The term ‘Saffron Terror‘ was used by ministers in the former UPA government when members of right-wing fundamentalist groups were named in connection with terror incidents like the Samjhauta blast and the 2008 Malegaon blast.
Central Government released a secret annexure of document which was circulated during a meeting of the home ministry in 2007.
This secret annexure not just gives the names of various Pakistan-based groups as those responsible for the attack but also the names of their Pakistani and Indian handlers.
Watch This Explosive Video, Before We Go Into Case By Case Detail :
According to the MHA note of 2007 that details the progress of investigations and prosecutions of major terror cases from 2005, there was sufficient evidence to indicate that the blasts at Malegaon and the Samjhauta Express were carried out by Islamic terrorists. Moreover, it had no mention of Hindu fundamentalist groups or ‘Saffron Terror’ as had been made out by politicians from the Congress, following the attack.
Malegaon Blasts : 8th September 2006
Four bomb blasts hit Malegaon on September 8, 2006, leaving 31 persons dead and 312 injured. Nine persons were arrested in relation with the case, while four others were absconding.
The explosives contained in these bombings were “A cocktail of RDX, Ammonium Nitrate and fuel oil” the same mixture used in July 2006 Mumbai train bombings.
The secret MHA annexure said :
“According to confessions, the accused persons belong to SIMI, a banned organisation. There were riots in Malegaon in 2001-02 in which Muslim community suffered and police allegedly acted against them, as per their confessions. The accused, therefore, conspired to take revenge from the police, government and the other community and decided to get weapons from abroad,”
The note not only details groups involved in the attacks – SIMI, HuJI, it also names the individuals involved and the planning that went into its execution. As per the document, the occasion for these blasts was carefully chosen so as to incite communal riots in Malegaon. The two arrested accused namely Shabir Masiullah and Sheikh Mohd. Ali Alam Sheikh had been to Pakistan for weapons training in 2006.
Ajmer Dargah Attack: 11 October 2007
The Ajmer Dargah blast occurred outside the Dargah (shrine) of Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer, Rajasthan allegedly by the Hindutva organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its groups. On 22 October 2010, five accused, of which four allegedly belonging to the Hindu nationalist group RSS were arrested in connection with the blast.
Senior Ex-RAW officer, RSN Singh said that several blasts of low intensity were planned and conducted by the politicians and then they used NIA, SIT to frame Hindu outfits.
It was then Home Minister, Sushilkumar Shinde, who forced Bhavesh Patel to implicate RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. In his letter, Patel also blamed several other UPA ministers, including Minister of State for Home RPN Singh, Coal Minister Sri Prakash Jaiswal and Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh, for trying to frame RSS head Mohan Bhagwat & several others from RSS & VHP.
Mecca Masjid Bombing: 18th May 2007
The Mecca Masjid bombing occurred inside the Mecca Masjid, a mosque in Hyderabad. 14 people were reported dead in the immediate aftermath.
Though the SIT of Hyderabad Police arrested ‘South India commander’ of the LeT, identified as Shaik Abdul Khaja alias Amjad, from Afzalgunj area of the city. Police said that the arrested was linked to Mohammed Abdul Shahid Bilal, a key suspect in the bombing.
But the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and ATS questioned former members of the RSS On 19 November 2010, the CBI produced Swami Aseemanand before the court in connection with the Blast. It is important to note here that Aseemanand made a confession, which was “confidential”, which he later retracted.
It is explicit from the NIA charge-sheet that Aseemanand’s retracted confession almost exclusively constitutes the backbone of the NIA case. The leak of Aseemananda’s alleged confession to the media (Tehelka), which is shocking and deliberate, was part of the design to politicize the case, conduct and conclude a media trial, and to create, at the global level, the notion of “Saffron (Hindu) Terror” for political purposes of the ruling party, Congress.
Samjhauta Express Blasts: 18th February 2007
The twin blasts shook two coaches of the Samjhauta Express around midnight on 18 February 2007. Sixty-eight people were killed in the ensuing fire and dozens were injured.
It has been allegedly linked to Abhinav Bharat, a Hindu fundamentalist group. In November 2008, it was reported that the Maharashtra ATS suspected the attacks were linked to Prasad Shrikant Purohit, an Indian army officer and a member of Abhinav Bharat.
Now comes the interesting part. Except the Indian investigators under Congress, all others pointed fingers at the LeT to be responsible.
“Qasmani Arif, chief coordinator of the relations of LeT with other organizations, has worked with LeT to facilitate terrorist attacks including, the bombing of February 2007 in the Samjhauta Express in Panipat (India).”
This is what resolution [No 1267] of the Committee on Sanctions of the United Nations Security Council [UNSC] dated 29.6.2009 declares. Adding that Qasmani was funded by Dawood Ibrahim and he did fund-raising for LeT and Al-Qaida, the UNSC said: “In exchange for their support, Al-Qaida provided support staff for the bombing in February 2007 in the Samjhauta Express in Panipat.” This resolution is available on UN site.
Six months after the UN and the US announced sanctions against LeT and Qasmani, the Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Mallik himself admitted that Pakistani terrorists were involved in the Samjhauta blast.
Why were these clinching pieces of evidence not pursued? How did the blame shift from Islamists to Hindus???
Why did NIA not name Arif Qasmani as suspect/accused in the Samjhauta blast? Why it did not seek the extradition of Arif Qasmani from Pakistan? What effort did the NIA make to secure the evidence on the basis of which the UNSC had declared Arif Qasmani as the accused in the Samjhauta blast? What effort did it make to secure the evidence on the basis of which the US Treasury Department had declared Arif Qasmani as the perpetrator? Did the NIA write to the Ministry of External Affairs or the Interpol directly for assistance from the US and the UN in the above? Whether it asked the MEA to seek the co-operation of the group established between India and Pakistan for sharing of the information?
The answer is None…!!! you know why???
It because of the rise of Nationalist Pro-Hindu PM Mr. Narendra Modi, and they wished to malign his hardcore hindu nationalist image at any cost.
Congress were intended to set a perception parallel to Muslims, that if you are a Hindu You are a terrorist.
