Congress Party concealed the realities of Islamic terrorist attacks by conceiving the myth of the “saffron terror”
In the Mecca Masjid bombing in Hyderabad, 14 people were reported dead, in which the IED contained Cyclotol, a 60:40 mixture of RDX and TNT. It is important to note as they are specially used by the Islamic Terror outfits. 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.
The South Asia Terrorism Portal, the Institute for Defence Studies and Analysis, the National Counterterrorism Center of the United States, and the United Nations reported that Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI) was actually behind the blasts. The South Asia Terrorism Portal cited Vikar Ahmed as the main suspect in the blast. Mohammed Abdul Shahid Bilal, former chief of HuJI’s Indian operations, was also regarded as a key suspect in the Mecca Masjid bombing, later he was shot by unknown gunmen in Karachi, Pakistan on August 30, 2007.
The NIA court in Ajmer framed murder charges against seven persons, including key accused Aseemanand. Devendra Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Chandrashekhar Leve, Bharat Mohan Rateshwar, Jarshad Bhai and Mukesh Wasani have also been charged under sections 302 and 307 of IPC.
