Jaipur, Oct 23 (IANS):  A senior Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader was present when the conspiracy to carry out a blast at the shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer was hatched, according to the charge-sheet filed in the case.

However, the RSS leader Indresh Kumar has not been named as accused in the charge-sheet filed by the Rajasthan Police’s Anti-Terrorist Squad in an Ajmer court Friday.

Holding supporters of radical Hindu group Abhinav Bharat responsible for the Oct 11, 2007 blast, in which three people were killed and 30 injured, the ATS has charged Devendra Gupta, Lokesh Sharma, Chander Shekhar Lave, Sandeep Dange and Ramji Kalsangre with murder, attempt to murder, conspiracy, harming or defiling place of worship and other crimes.

Gupta, Sharma and Lave are in judicial custody while Dange and Kalsangre are absconding.

Another accused, Sunil Joshi, died during the course of investigation.

The 806-page charge sheet says that the conspiracy for the bomb blast was hatched during a meeting held in room number 26 of Gujarati Samaj Guesthouse situated near MI Road in Jaipur Oct 21, 2005. The accused had checked in under false names.

According to the charge sheet, Indresh Kumar was present at the secret meeting in which six other functionaries of the outfit were also present.

‘Indresh suggested that they attach themselves to some religious organisation so that they can pass themselves off as pilgrims,’ the charge-sheet says.

Swami Asinanand of Abhinav Bharat Sangthan and Sadhvi Pragya of Jai Vande Matram Sangthan were also present in the meeting where not only was the conspiracy hatched but different tasks were also assigned to some of the conspirators, the ATS said.

‘Indresh has so far not been made an accused in the case as further investigation are required, but he seems to be a conspirator,’ a source in the ATS said.

According to the ATS, the bombs were made in Indore and the area where the bombs were to be planted were identified in a meeting held in Dang area of Gujarat between Feb 11 and 13, 2007.

RSS leader chargesheeted for Ajmer Blast

NDTV Correspondent, Updated: October 23, 2010 18:53 IST

Jaipur: The Rajasthan ATS on Friday filed a charge sheet against five 2007 Ajmer blast accused, accusing them of murder and defiling a place of worship.

A senior RSS leader, Indresh Kumar, is among those named in the charge sheet, which says the blast at the Ajmer Dargah three years ago was the result of an elaborate conspiracy hatched by a group of Hindu radicals.

The chargesheet says:

  • Indresh took part in a meeting in Jaipur on October 31, 2005 with seven others
  • In the meeting he exhorted members to do radical acts
  • Indresh said being part of religious organisations will help them avoid suspicion and accomplish their mission
  • Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blast case, was also present in that meeting.
Police say there is not enough evidence to frame charges against Indresh yet, but there’s every possibility he will be questioned.
The Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot, says the RSS must accept the truth.”The RSS should accept the truth which has come out,” said Gehlot.”The ATS has done a very good job as it was very important for the truth to come out and it is now in the open. A link was found between Ajmer Sharif blast, Jaipur and Malegaon blasts and the wrongdoers were caught. I think the ATS has done a good job for which even the central Government had thanked them,” Gehlot added.

But the man in the eye of the storm, Indresh Kumar, claims he’s being framed. “It is a political conspiracy,” he told NDTV.

“The RSS has been consistently working to undermine and upset the pluralistic ethos of India,” said Manish Tewari, Congress Spokesperson. (Read: Congress accuses RSS of ‘disturbing’ communal amity)
The 806-page charge sheet was filed by the Anti-Terrorist Squadin the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Jagendra Kumar Jain in connection with the blast on the premises of the Dargah of Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti that left three persons dead and 15 others injured.The accused have been charged with sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 120B (conspiracy) and 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship) of IPC among others.The prosecution has cited 133 witnesses.

The court fixed October 26 for arguments on the charge sheet.

Rahul Gandhi – RSS and SIMI both are terror group

9 Oct

Am not politically too much aware to really judge if equating RSS with SIMI is justifiable. But, there is no doubt RSS, VHP, Bajrang dal, Shiv sena are all extremists groups and have more than once contributed to unnecessary and despicable communal and social tension in the country.

http://ibnlive.in.com/news/rahul-has-committed-a-political-crime-bjp/132596-37-64.html?from=tn

If only these political parties had the guts to demand apology from their own allies to the country whenever they did  something wrong. It’s easy to dance on the opposition’s head!!

Booming industry of Hindutva Terrorism

6 Oct

With the emergence of Hindutva fascist forces and their alliance with Neo consand Zionists,  India witnessed a sharp increase in the number of research institutes, media houses and lobbying groups.  According to a  study by Think Tanks & Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania,  India has 422  think tanks, second only to the US, which has over 2,000 such institutions.

Out of 422 recognized Indian think tanks, around 63 are engaged in security research and foreign policy matters,  which are heavily funded by global weapon industry.  India’s Retired spies,  Police officers,  Military personals, Diplomats and Journalists are hired by such  national  security &  foreign policy research institutes which gets enormous fund from  global weapon industry.  These dreaded institutions  are in fact has a hidden agenda.  Behind the veil, they work as the  public relations arm of weapon industry.  They  create fake terror stories with the help of media and intelligence wing,  manipulate explosions  through criminals in areas of tribals, dalits or minorities in order to get public acceptance for weapon contracts.

By creating conflicts in this poor country, Brahmin spin masters get huge commission from the sale of weapons to government forces. To this corrupt bureaucrats,  India’s  ‘National Interest‘ simply means ‘their self Interest’. Their lobbying power bring more wealth to their families as lucrative jobs, citizenship of rich countries and educational opportunities abroad.

Mentionable that India is one of the world’s largest weapons importers. Between 2000 and 2007 India ranked world’s second largest arms importer accounting for 7.5 % of all major weapons transfers.  It stood fourth among the largest military spender in terms of purchasing power in 2007 followed by US, China and Russia.

Over 1,130 companies in 98 countries manufacture arms, ammunitions and components. 90 % of Conventional arms exports in the world are from the permanent five members of the United Nations Security Council namely USA, UK, Russia, China & France. The countries of Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East hold 51 per cent of the world’s heavy weapons.

The Defence Offset Facilitation Agency estimating the expenditure on the sector at USD 100 billion for next five years. At least 38 court cases relating to arms agreements are still pending against bureaucrats and military officers. Hindu fascist forces currently enjoy upper hand in media, civil service, judiciary, defence and educational streams of Indian society. Sooner or later, 25,000 strong democratic institutions in India will be collapsed and the country will be transformed to a limited democracy under the rule of security regime like Turkey or Israel.  Hindutva’s security centric nationalism never was capable of bringing peace and protection to the life of  our ordinary citizens.

According to Global Peace Index, India currently ranked on bottom, (122 with 2.422 score).  Interestingly, our favourite arms supplier, Israel  is among the worst performer  when it comes to peace ranking. (141).  It reminds a simple fact that the  peace cannot be attained by sophisticated security apparatus.

Further more, India topped  on Asian Risk Prospects -2009,  with the highest political and social risk, scoring 6.87, mainly because of internal and external instability (PERC)
