Does Hindu Terror Exist??

The Bodh Gaya blasts have brought to the fore a shameless attempt by some media organizations & politicians to communalize it by raising the boggy of the non-existent phenomenon called ‘Hindu terror’.

Sagarika Gosh twitted yesterday - “Two big stories this weekend: blast at Bodh Gaya & Modi begins his "virtual" Bihar campaign...”

Digvijay Singh twitted today - “Amit Shah (BJP Gen Secry) promises... a grand temple at Ayodhya, Modi addresses Bihar BJP workers & asks them to teach Nitish Kumar a lesson, next day bomb blasts at Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya. Is there a connect? I don't know."

All the above are inspite of the fact that specific input was sent by the Intelligence Bureau in Oct’ 2012, that Bodh Gaya was on the hit list of the terrorist groups operating in India. Even a fortnight back, the IB had sent the sketches of two suspects who had sneaked into the state capital, but the police could not track the duo. The IB had specifically mentioned that the terrorists were targeting Buddhist places in reaction to the alleged atrocities on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. When an NIA team interrogated David Headley in the US in connection with the Mumbai blasts, he had categorically mentioned that terrorist outfit LeT had prepared a film on the Bodh Gaya temple & was planning to trigger blasts there. Even Indian Mujahideen (IM) member Syed Maqbool, who was caught in connection with German Bakery blast in Pune, had also confessed to the police that there was a plan to blast Bodh Gaya temple. A map of Bodh Gaya was also seized from his possession. Even Delhi police commissioner had warned the Bihar government on a televised press conference, that Bodh Gaya was on the hit-list of terrorists.

With this kind of untimely, uncalled & illogical romance of certain media & politicians with Jehadi Terror, it is not surprising that the northern parts of Bihar are emerging as the strong hold of the ISI backed terrorists outfits. The culprit of the most obnoxious & provocative act of kicking the ‘Jai Jawan Memorial’ in Mumbai was finally traced to the same region.

RSN Singh, a former military intelligence officer who later served in the RAW recently said that the ISI has been funding politicians in India. In the intelligence circles the identity of these politicians are very well known. The Pakistan & the ISI connection of some of the news channels & journalists is also too well known. Has the ISI found new recruits? What was Osama bin Laden to the Americans, Hafiz Saeed is to India. He is the most precious strategic asset of ISI to fight India & is behind every terror outfit operating in India be it SIMI, Indian Mujahideen, LeT or HUJI etc. The systematic destruction of India’s internal security apparatus is not only for vote-bank politics though Modi-phobia is a factor but not the sole reason. It has a larger dimension which is evident from the nervousness displayed by this dispensation with regard to ISI, Hafiz Saeed or Jehadi terror. Are the services of the ISI & LeT being obtained to influence vote-bank politics?
