Why aren’t the charges against Lt Col Prasad Shrikant Purohit being dropped? Why is he incarcerated without trial for his alleged involvement in cases involving Hindu terror groups when the cases of accused belonging to such groups seem to be floundering?
Was Lt Col Purohit set-up as a pawn in a political game of thrones and exploited by the political establishment, supported by a malleable, pliant Army leadership in 2008?
The US Treasury Department blames the LeT for Samjhauta blasts. David Headley’s Moroccon wife said her husband was involved, but the previous dispensation, which Rohini Salian found convenient to work with, was steadfast in its claim that it was perpetrated by Hindu terrorists which included Lt Col Purohit.
If Modi is allowed to fly high on a platform of Hindu nationalism, his being grounded will be blamed on intrigue by the forces of “pseudo secularism”. This pits Modi as an embodiment of an idea shaded in dark saffron, projected in Presidential style, against the secular formations, pale and wan, poised precariously on a rickety Parliamentary platform.” The real battle, then, is not being envisaged for 2014 but more like 2016 – mid term. Jaitley’s 15 page letter, giving details of all the cases that are zeroing in on Modi and Shah is the beginning of an almighty cat and mouse between the BJP and the UPA. Is there a real fear that Modi will be grounded before take off?
Two Court documents related to the arrest of alleged Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal. The documents were sourced by Canary Trap's Shankar Anand. The first one is the Court Order granting the National Investigation Agency (NIA) 12 days of custody of Mohd. Ahmed Siddibappa alias Yasin Bhatkal and Asadullah Akhtar alias Haddi. And the second one is NIA's application seeking the remand of both the alleged terrorists.
With more details of David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana's visit to India emerge, one question that remains unanswered is what were the Indian security and intelligence agencies doing while the terror duo were roaming freely across the country? Had FBI not tracked and arrested them we would never have known about their activities in India. They might have visited the country again and gathered information for the next terror attack.
