Ramzan ka Bakra

TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao (BJP ally) at an Iftar party in Hyderabad.

Little does KCR realise that his day-dream (Telangana) is going to be a nightmare and re-establishment of the erstwhile Nizam's Islamic theocratic state - both geographically and ideologically. Do we really need to create another Pakistan in the Deccan, and partition India a second time?

This brings us to the million rupee question. Why is the BJP supporting the creation of this Muslim-dominated Telangana state? Go figure...

The BJP (and its ally TRS) are no better than a pair of Bakras being hand-fed before the Eid slaughter.

Please enjoy your Haleem and Biryani while you still can.

What Viqaruddin's confession reveals about the Islamic mindset

The "devout Arab-wannabe" Viqaruddin Ahmed, who was arrested in Hyderabad recently, is a prize catch not only for the Andhra Pradesh police but also for national security, if one is to go by his confessions to his interrogators. Hyderabad police officers have interrogated Ahmed for over a month now. In a confessional statement, Ahmed has revealed how he had planned a 26/11 style attack, apart from plots to assassinate Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and other Bharatiya Janata Party-Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leaders.

Ahmed confessed that he was planning a 26/11 style terror attack in Hyderabad this year.

Viqaruddin Ahmed was wanted in connection with three attacks on policemen since 2008 in which two policemen were killed.

The latest attack occurred on May 18 this year in which an armed reserve police constable was shot dead. Ahmed was arrested last month from the home of a doctor in Secunderabad on the basis of information provided by his brother Sulaiman.

Ahmed has spoken of a 26/11 style attack which he had planned to undertake in December.

He told the police that he had travelled to Pakistan and Bangladesh where a 26/11 type attack plan was hatched by the Harkat-ul-Jihadi Islami. He returned to Hyderabad to raise funds for this attack.

A terror operation of that magnitude, Ahmed is alleged to have told his interrogators, needed at least Rs 30 lakh (Rs 3 million).

Interestingly, he confessed that he had raised Rs 10 lakh (Rs 1 million) from Hyderabad city alone. He is alleged to have identified the individuals from whom he collected the money, but the Hyderabad police have kept those names under wraps lest it hamper the investigation.

The plan, according to Ahmed's confession, was to carry out a 26/11-like attack on Hyderabad in December. 'We were planning to procure AK-47 rifles for this operation,' he allegedly stated.

Viqar also told the police that he tried to assassinate Narendra Modi earlier this year when the Gujarat chief minister arrived to inaugurate the Ramol Chowk police station in Vatva, Ahmedabad.

Ahmed secured entry to the venue in the guise of a reporter. A press card with the name Imran, designating him as a crime correspondent, and fake identity cards of some television channels have been seized from him.

Ahmed allegedly revealed he aborted the plan after he discovered a large number of security personnel had been deployed at the venue. A source in the Hyderabad police, who has been interrogating Ahmed, said that they have recovered pen drives with the names of important BJP-RSS leaders from the alleged terrorist, giving rise to the fear that these leaders were on his hit-list.

Ahmed allegedly told the police that he was very close to Shahid Bilal, who the Hyderabad police accuse of masterminding several attacks in the city. Both men lived in the same area in Hyderabad and were in touch till Bilal fled to Bangladesh. Bilal, who is said to have been murdered in Pakistan, is said to be responsible for Ahmed's transformation from small-time goonda to alleged terrorist.

Bilal, Ahmed allegedly revealed, planned and executed the twin blasts at Hyderabad's Gokul Chat and Lumbini Park in August 2007, which killed over 50 Hindus.

Muslims support BJP for the creation of Muslim-dominated Telangana?

Readers' comment:

Nizamabad has the largest number of Muslim voters in this election. Their voting percentage is around 40%. They stuck with TRS and BJP even though they did not like the alliance.

Even a child knows that TRS/BJP have only teamed up for Telangana statehood issue. BJP candidate Y. Lakshminarayana resigned for the cause of Telangana. I'm sure Muslim voters of his constituency appreciate his stand and have voted for him.

We all know how much Muslims hate the BJP, but they love the idea of an Muslim-dominated Telangana state even more. Hence their unprecedented support for the BJP candidate.

The myopic BJP may be gloating that its candidate won the Nizamabad Urban constituency, but the biggest loser is India.

In its greed for votes, the BJP has eagerly became an "useful idiot" for Islamic expansionism.

Islamists reward TRS and BJP for supporting a separate Muslim-dominated Telangana state

July 28th, 2010

Muslims appear to have voted en masse for the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) - BJP alliance.

Telangana, who are a dominant force in the 12 Assembly constituencies that went to polls on Tuesday, seem to have supported the TRS which had an alliance with the BJP.

The TRS had joined hands with the BJP by not fielding a candidate in the Nizamabad Urban constituency, where the APCC president, Mr D. Srinivas, tried his his luck again after losing to the BJP’s Mr Lakshminarayana in 2009.

Initially, the TRS chief, Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao, announced that the TRS would have a “limited’ understanding” with the BJP that would be limited to Nizamabad. As the campaign progressed, however, Mr Rao shared dais with the BJP leader, Mr Ch Vidyasagar Rao, in Vemulawada, Dharmapuri and Sircilla, while others including the legislator, Mr G. Kishan Reddy, joined him in the campaign.

The Congress took advantage of this, assuring the Muslim community that it would continue to protect the community’s interests. The differences intensified when the TRS took the support of Muslims for granted in many constituencies. In Dharmapuri, Korutla, Vemulawada and Huzurabad, Muslims decided in the last minute to vote for the Congress. But in Sircilla, Muslims voted for the TRS candidate despite lack of any assurance from the TRS over its future alliance with the BJP.

“TRS is taking us for granted. The party has not even bothered to dispel our apprehensions over its relations with the BJP. Yet we will vote for a separate Islamic Telangana.” said Mr Ahmadulla, a tailor from Korutla. Educated Muslims made it clear that they would support the TRS as they are for a separate state.

In Nizamabad Urban, minority voters turned up in large numbers to polling booths since morning despite the Jagne ki Raat on Tuesday night.

As a result of Muslim voters who support the creation of Muslim-dominated Telangana, BJP candidate Y Lakshminarayana won for the second time from Nizamabad Urban in the recent bypolls, by defeating the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee President D.Srinivas.


But Telangana does not find any mention in the whole speech of D.Srinivas. This looks a bit strange considering that his rival -- BJP candidate Yendala Lakshminarayana is fighting only on the Telangana plank, not on Hindutva plank.

Lakshminarayana, in fact, was the sitting MLA-elected in 2009. He vacated his seat for the sake of Telangana, necessitating the by-election. Though in this rich agro-based town, the T-cause strikes less resonance than in the rural hinterland, the T sentiment is not absent. "Everybody is united on the Telangana cause and with each passing day the sentiment is spreading," Lakshminarayana tells us in the course of a padyatra in the city bylanes. "Last time I won by 11,000 votes, this time we will win by 30,000," he says. An enthusiastic camp follower -- in sharp contrast to the state of affairs in the Congress camp, pipes in : "No, no, he will win by a bigger margin; the opponent will lose his deposit."

But what about the 50,000-60,000 odd Muslim votes, the minorities are surely not going to vote for a BJP candidate? this correspondent asks Lakshimnarayana. The determined candidate is unfazed. He says: "This time there is unity amongst all sections on the Telangana issue. They will vote for me." There are 2.4 lakh voters and in 2009 merely 96,000 had cast their franchise.

Analysts say that just because his opponent is a BJP man, Srinivas cannot take it for granted that the Muslims will vote for him. "It can be like 2009, when most of the Muslims abstained from voting. "If they feel that they are given a choice between the devil and the deep sea, they might not go to the polling booth," says a local analyst. He adds: "Srinivas does not have any equity with the voters whether Hindu or Muslims."


The BJP on Sunday accused the ruling Congress and main opposition TDP of entering into a pact to defeat the "Telangana sentiment" in the coming byelections.

"Congress and TDP are bitter rivals. But they don't want Telangana sentiment to win. If sentiment is there, it will go against them. That is why TDP has fielded a non-Muslim candidate in Nizamabad though they initially wanted to field a Muslim candidate. This is what people of Nizamabad say," BJP National Secretary K Lakshman told reporters in Hyderabad.

The Congress reciprocated by fielding a "weak" candidate against strong TDP nominees in other seats, he claimed.

"Congress and TDP MLAs did not quit their posts in support of separate Telangana as decided by the all-party Joint Action Committee. Now, they want to defeat those who resigned for the sake of Telangana. They do not want 'Telanganaism' to be robust," Lakshman said.

But the electorate has seen through the designs of the two parties and "their bluff" would be called in the bypolls, he claimed.

BJP MLA from Nizamabad Urban constituency Y Lakshminarayana, who had quit his post, is the sole candidate of the saffron party who is in fray in the bypolls, that was held on July 27.

The BJP did not even contest the other seats. Why?


Referring to the victory of the BJP candidate Y Lakshminarayana in Nizamabad Urban constituency against the state Congress president D Srinvas, KCR thanked the Muslims for supporting even BJP candidate for the sake of Telangana.

"Without the support of our Muslim brothers and sisters, a BJP candidate could not have won. They have done it for the sake of Telangana and revived the spirit of communal harmony and composite culture, for which Telangana is known," he said.

"Pious Muslim" Viqar threatens Kafir prison officials, demands comforts

Syed Viqaruddin Ahmed

Bhagyanagar, 03 Aug 2010:

"Tere ku nai maloom main kaun hoon?" is his `favourite' oneliner and his demands inside the Cherlapally prison would remind one of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving gunman in the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai.

From demands for steaming hot mutton biryani, chicken curry to TV and other comforts, Syed Viqaruddin, the jihadi accused of killing four policemen, has become a nightmare of sorts for the staff with his tantrums at the Cherlapally prison.

Prison sources told Express that Viqaruddin, known to be very short-tempered, reportedly abuses the staff for most part of the day. "He threatens us with serious consequences when we tell him that he cannot be served biryani or any other dish of his choice inside the jail. He abuses in the filthiest language, sometimes just for the heck of it," sources said.

"You don't know who I am,'' is what he says often.

Recently, when he was served the regular dal and rice meal, he hurled the plate at a staff. "Sometimes he enquires about other prisoners lodged in the barracks and goes abusive if told to mind his business. He hates policemen and makes it obvious by abusing the entire department," sources said.

He insists on meeting with his accomplices, particularly his relative Suleman arrested along with him.

"Tu kaun hai rey mereko bolne wala (who are you to tell me)?" is how he shouts when told that he cannot meet them.

The self-styled leader of Tehreek Galba-e-Islam had even abused his interrogators, a few senior police officials, when he was quizzed soon after his arrest.

"His attitude is similar to that of gangsters rough, abusive and violent," a senior police official said.

Meanwhile, the Madhya Pradesh police, unhappy with the AP police for not sharing the details of Viqar's interrogation with them, shot off a detailed questionnaire seeking information gathered about Viqar. They suspect Viqar's role in the shootout at Khandwa in 2007 in which an ATS constable and some others were killed.
