Submitted by Amitabh tripathi (India), Sep 7, 2005 at 09:23

Respected Mr Daniel Pipes,

A real author must be a visionary which is very much correct in the matter of you sir .Your contribution to whole humanity is really immense.You are like a vigilent inspector of society. Many times you have proven yourself a commited human being who wants this world to be free from virus of violent Jihad.
It is not to be said you have given new dimensions to serious writings and discussions among intellectual class worldwide on the subject of Islamic terrorism.This article is also a piece of your labour and mastery. When this transition phase will be over your contribution will be remembered everywhere with due respect.
The conspiracy to which this article reveals could be a new plot but this only indicates phenomenon of jihadi terrorism. Jihadis everywhere trying to contribute for their so called Jihad even in jail. I have several times said openly that Jihadi terrorism should be seen in its right persepective that it is not a law & order problem, it has ideological root.
If somebody think it is his holy duty to kill others and blow up himself in pieces how can you stop him. The only way to stop him is to stop the source of this ideology, stop the methods of its propagation.
We have to find out the source of this poision from where it gets all of its moral,educational support. If it is like a corporate house we have to find out its headquarters. Its headquarters is in South Asia. Being an Indian I can tell it confidentially that root cause of this problem is very much related with India. Darool Uloom Deoband Madrassa is generator of this factory. Taliban of Afganistans were product of this Deoband and it is located very near to Indian capital city Delhi only 80 km away from this place in Saharanpur of Uttar Pradesh. The real problem is the Indian political system which is totally based on muslim appeasement policy. Every political party feels proud in giving clean chit to this institution. In some way you can compare this problem as you have in America with CAIR.
The need of the hour is to make an uniform policy worldwide to fight against this phenomenon. If the west will take its path and South Asian countries own path then Jihadi terrorism will never be abolished.
Jihadis have two school of thought; Deobandi and Barelvi. The former asserts on Bin Laden brand of jihad and the latter approaches for gradual jihad. Darool Uloom Deoband teaches Bin Laden brand of jihad. Most of contemporary Islamic terrorists belong to Deobandi school of thought. Commander of Jaish-e-Mohammad, Masood Azher and Talibani Mulla Omar were products of Darool Uloom Deoband. Now whole Pakistan and now also Bangladesh have become sanctuary for these Deobandis. The real terror network is here which not only prvides terrorists, but also indoctrinates common muslims to Jihad.
No one can deny the strength of Muslim population in this subcontinent. These Muslims are more vulnerable to this recruitment. All allies of war on terror should come together and share with each other about the situation of Muslim state of mind in their respective countries and then make a policy how to keep them away from violent jihad. Otherwise Britain or America will get nothing by deporting radical clerics from their countries. They will come to South Asia, and Indian political parties will embrace them as their potential vote bank. If west is seriously concerned about rooting out jihadi terrorism it has to pursue Indian government firmly about Islamic institutions.
Finally I have great expectations to Mr Daniel Pipes that at least he should give ear to my suggestions .
