IB demons are out again

After a respite of sorts since the confession of Aseemanand a year ago, IB, in the guise of Delhi Special Police, swooped upon Muslim youth once again. Members of the so-called “Indian Mujahidin” (which remains an enigma with many believing that its virtual HQ is based in the IB computers in Delhi) have been again arrested in droves since the last week of November, including two from the Okhla area of Delhi itself.

A Delhi police statement on 30 November made the startling headlines next day that “North Bihar” is now becoming another “Azamgarh” which was re-christened as “Atankgarh” (terror town) by IB, Police and the ever-obliging Indian “mainstream” media. So Azamgarh as a “hub of terror” is now a forgone conclusion though we already have more such “terror hubs” like Bhatkal on Karnataka's western coast. Malegaon, too, is etched in public memory as a “terror hub” though Hindutva terrorists have been found responsible for both 2006 and 2008 blasts there. Udupi, yet another South Indian town is now being dubbed as a “terror hub” by these very Goebbelsian forces… The latest entrants defamed as “another Azamgarh” are Mirganj, Sitamarhi, Araria, Darbhanga and Madhubani where, the IB enlightens us, madrasahs have “doubled” these past few years.  And what is the proof? IB is so sure of its facts that it told its beloved stenos in the media that IM has established “seven sleeper cells in the area”. So madrasahs too are now decidly schools of terror though no madrasah across India has ever been found teaching terror or involved in terror in any way to date despite the best efforts of the likes of Advani and his equally communal successor. But Goebbelsian lies have their own logic - the more you repeat them the more true they become.

More intriguing in this whole saga is that in one stroke Delhi Police has solved three upto now blind blast cases - Jama Masjid firing prior to the Commonwealth Games, German Bakery case and Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy Stadium blast, while Bihar, U.P. and Maharashtra cops are finding it hard to conceal their rage and disbelief.

IB has found that the arrested people though belonging to other places have fake Bihar addresses on their passports! The blinkered, communal and lazy armchair sleuths are unware that Bihar, in particular, is a source of many fake passports in India. It is an open secret that people who have difficulty in getting passports from other places use agents there who do it for a paltry fee.

This sensational disclosure comes in the wake of the bail of Malegaon 2006 accused and first-of-its-kind compensation to the Makkah Masjid accused… What could be a better way to keep the myth of “Muslim terrorism” alive than a new wave of wholesale arrests! A lot of cash awards, medals and promotions are to be won from an eager and thankful State. And more than that, their boss, the Home Minister, is now neck-deep in trouble for daring to touch Hindutva terrorists. At the annual conference of the Directors General and Inspectors General of Police last September a special director of the Intelligence Bureau had said that Hindutva terrorists are being probed in 16 terrorist cases out of which four are proven. What better way to get out of this mess than to revive the “Islamic terror” myth! After all, this brand was created and kept alive by IB whose boss is the very same Home Minister. We have a long tradition of human sacrifices (bali) in this country, and no sacrifice is too much when political power is at stake.
