Terror outfit says we did it, promises to target Mukesh Ambani, politiciansJuly 26th, 2008 - 10:59 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 26 (IANS) A little known terror outfit, Indian Mujahideen, claimed to have taken “revenge of Gujarat in the land of Hind” by orchestrating multiple serial blasts in Ahmedabad Saturday that claimed at least 14 lives and left more than 70 injured, and vowed to target industrialist Mukesh Ambani, and Maharashtra politicians Vilasrao Deshmukh and R.R. Patil in the future. In a 14-page e-mail sent to select television channels titled “The Rise of Jihad, revenge of Gujarat”, the Indian Mujahideen claimed responsibility for the serial blasts in Gujarat’s main city.
“You agitated our sentiments and disturbed us by arresting, imprisoning, and torturing our brothers in the name of SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) and the other outfits in Indore, Ujjain, Mumbai, and in other cities of Karnataka.
“We hereby notify you, especially the ATS and the STF and the governments of Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, to release them all, lest you become our next targets and victims of our next attack,” the email read.
The mail hits out at Maharasthra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh and Deputy Chief Minister R.R. Patil for his alleged torture of Muslim communities.
“To the Maharashtra government and Vilasrao Deshmukh and R.R. Patil, we announce the deadline to take heed before it is too late. Don’t think we are unaware of the SRPF (state reserve police force) attacks on our Masjids and our homes…” the mail said.
India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, is on top of the hit list of the terrorist outfit.
“We also alert Mukesh Ambani to think twice before usurping and building a citadel on a land in Mumbai that belongs to the Waqf Board, lest it turns into horrifying memories for you which you will never ever forget,” Indian Mujahideen warned.
The terrorist group also called upon the Andhra Pradesh government, specifically the Hyderabad police, to “release the imprisoned Muslim youth immediately”.
The terrorist outfit termed the serial blasts a revenge for the 2002 Gujarat riots in which over a 1,000 people, especially from the minority community, were killed.
“In the light of the injustice and wrongs on the Muslims of Gujarat, we advance our Jihad and call all our bretheren under it to unite and answer these irresolute kafireen of India,” the email said.
Using harsh language, the mail termed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi a “spineless coward” and called Muslims to fight against Hindu groups like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS)
Referring to the Gujjar agitation, the mail said: “If a petty population of Rajasthani Gujjars can use force for fulfilling their needs, then are we even more subjugated than these backwards?”
