Saga: Mumbai attack was a joint IB-CIA-Mossad-RSS project
By Amaresh Misra

With the row over India getting access to David
Headley growing acrimonious each day, the CIA's double agent saga seems
all set to open up a can of incredible worms.
First, the case unmasks the pro-US face of the Indian
English media. When the Headley saga first came to light, Vir Sanghavi of
the Hindustan Times carried an editorial piece claiming that if
'Headley is CIA, and knew about 26/11, the CIA knew about the attack.' In
other words, Sanghavi accepted the 'conspiracy theory'–which in the eyes
of the English media was 'peddled' by Aziz Burney and this author during
the terrible aftermath of 26/11–that the event was a CIA/Mossad/RSS/ISI
In November-December 2008, Vir Sanghavi and his cohorts in the English
media attacked both Aziz Burney and this author for spelling forth the
'conspiracy theory'. Then after Headley's name surfaced, they changed
tune, without of course admitting their debt to Mr. Burney or this author.
fact of the matter is that in the 2009 Parliamentary elections, the
English media was all set to project Lal Krishna Advani as India's next
Prime Minister. It was the feverish anti-RSS,
anti-Mossad work done by Aziz Burney and this author that went a long way
in ensuring the victory of Congress and secular forces.
Now when the CIA hand behind 26/11 is slowly being unraveled, the English
media is seeing red. It is again trying to portray Headley merely as a
Lashkar operative, severing thus his links with the CIA.
This highlights the second point, that basically Headley and the CIA
cannot be de-linked. Thank God the government of India put into place the
NIA, a new National Investigative Agency. The NIA was set up, as the IB
and other Indian agencies, especially the IB, had not only gone
anti-Muslim-they had gone anti-India. This was proved in the case of
Azamgarh boys picked up in and around the Batla House encounter on various
bomb blasts charges. Most of the boys were products not of madarsas, but
modern schools. They were youngsters in their teens; they had made a mark
for themselves in professional courses and were holding jobs in the new,
professional sector of the economy.
When Shri Digvijay Singh, the General Secretary AICC and the most secular
leader of the India, went to Sanjarpur (under the banner of Anti-Communal
Front) in Azamgarh to find out the facts for himself, he was shocked to
find that Zeeshan, a boy from Azamgarh who on the fateful day of the
Batala House encounter was giving his exams, had more than 50 cases
slapped over him in more than three states–which meant that his parents
could go on fighting cases for more than 100 years and yet Zeeshan would
be in jail.
There are dozens and hundreds of Zeeshans from Azamgarh and other
districts of UP, Gujarat and Maharashtra languishing in various Indian
jails on unsubstantiated charges. This in fact is India's Guantanamo Bay
story–that right here in the world's largest democracy the Indian security
services like the IB have secret detention and torture centres where
innocent Muslim youths are tortured and put to death. The IB today has
been infiltrated heavily by
RSS, Mossad and CIA. In fact, this one
agency is an anti-national agency—it is obstructing the work of NIA and
secular Indians like Shri Digvijay Singh. Soon, in India's interest, the
IB will have to be closed down. All its communal officers will be hunted
down and tried in a court of just law.
The IB knew about Headley—this is proved by the fact that the SIM cards
used by the ten 26/11 terrorists were purchased by an
Intelligence Bureau (India) (IB)
informer. Till date, the investigations into the 26/11 case, which the IB
is handling, have been unable to state as to how the ten terrorists got
hold of the SIM cards.
The State IB chief of Maharashtra told a very senior Mumbai Police Officer
just after 26/11 that he was ‘entirely in the dark about 26/11
investigations as Delhi (meaning the chief IB office) was handling it'.
Basic information about 26/11 was not shared with secular Indian officers.
The Headley lead would never have come to the fore had the NIA not stepped
IB training criminals [read
here Charge-sheet against IB]
Now comes the news that the IB has set-up training camps in Gorakhpur,
where it trains criminals–and then uses them to kill Muslim under-trials.
The name of Chota Rajan is used as a convenient scapegoat. It is in this
manner that dozens of accused in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts, several
other such accused in other cases, Muslim businessmen and men of influence
have been eliminated on a systematic basis in Maharashtra. The latest in
the long list of victims killed allegedly by IB is Shahid Azmi, the lawyer
defending the accused of the 2006 Mumbai train blasts. Shahid had hit upon
evidence which proved the innocence of the accused-and that is why he was
bumped off, again by criminals with Nepal–Gorakhpur links!
In fact, the state of Maharashtra holds the dubious distinction of almost
institutionalizing the extra-judicial killing of Muslim youth and
personalities. Headley was in India months and years before the 26/11
attack; he even surveyed Pune where a blast took place as late as February
2010. It beats one’s imagination as to how the IB did not know about
Headley and his movements. There can only be two scenarios: that the IB is
totally incompetent–or that the IB is heavily infiltrated by CIA and
Mossad: the agency knew about 26/11 and did nothing to stop it.
This places the IB at par with Headley, as executioners of 26/11 and mass
murderers. There can be no other honest conclusion.
Headley holds the key to the fact that 26/11 was not just a mere Lashkar
operation–that it was a joint Mossad-CIA operation, conducted with
possible ISI and
If the charge-sheet against
Raj Kumar Purohit and Sadhvi Pragya,
accused in the Malegaon and other blasts, is read, it is clear that there
was always some sort of collusion between the
RSS and the ISI. The so-called
Hindutva forces, took money to the tune
of crores of rupees from the ISI! The IB knows about this transaction but
is keeping quiet!
The Headley saga has links to Abhinav Bharat and pro-Hindutva
terror groups. The pro-Hindutva terror groups are widely believed to be
behind the Pune blasts where a combination of RDX and Ammonium Nitrate was
used. Right after the visit of Shri Digvijay Singh to Maharashtra in
February 2010, the state home secretary spoke of the possibility of the
involvement of Hindutva groups in the Pune blasts. Other officers,
including the ATS chief Raghuvanshi, purported to be an RSS/opportunist
also spoke of this possibility. But then RR Patil, the Maharashtra Home
Minister whose role during 26/11 was disastrous and who was removed from
his post in the wake of the attack on Mumbai (but who was restored after
the 2009 assembly elections), made amazing statements ‘that those who take
the name of Hindu organizations in the Pune blasts will be punished'!
How can a Home Minister make such a statement? Now we hear that Rakesh
Maria, a notorious anti-Muslim officer, with pro-Israeli links, a man who
has killed and tortured innocents, has been made the new ATS chief and
Raguvanshi has been promoted! Secular organizations in Maharashtra were
demanding that Raghuvanshi be removed and that an honest, secular officer
be made the ATS chief so that
Hemant Karkare's seminal work in cracking
the shell of Hindutva communalism could be promoted!.
But Rakesh Maria is even worse than Raghuvanshi. It seems that the NCP in
Maharashtra has taken a clear anti-Congress, anti-national line. RR Patil,
who is a third grade, uncouth, thoroughly communal, NCP leader should be
removed from his post. The Maharashtra chief minister should act, because
if the NIA gets access to Headley, the latter's links with Hindutva
organizations–and the whole
RSS-Mossad-CIA-ISI-IB nexus–will be
exposed. This nexus is working overtime to destabilize the Congress
government and undo the commendable work done by the party under the
secular leadership of Sonia Gandhi.
