Raids reveal 'evil designs' of Jehadi Terrorism
8/18/2006 7:19:06 AM HK

Kozhikode: In connection with the arrest of SIMI terrorist from Kochi, Police today raided Nanma Books an Islamic Fundamentalistic publishing house in SM Street and MIF publications,Islamic fundamentalist book shops in Cherooty road,Challapuram and KSRTC Bus stand here.Police also conducted raid in SIMI terrorist's house in Earattu petta and recovered several proofs linking them to ISI.Police collected many valuable proofs from these places and many inflammatory books glorifying Jehadi terrorism.

There are more than 20 publishing houses in Kozhikode, specifically for propagating Jehadi propagandas. Pamphlets inciting Hindu hatred, CD’s and Audio cassettes with hate sermons are also in store in many of the Islamic Shops in Kozhikode city.It is from here, Books, CD’s and Audio cassettes are exported to Middle east countries and to other parts of Kerala.

The main content of their books contain references to the ‘upper caste dominance’, ‘Muslim tortures’ and ‘resistance movements’, which are the terminology used in the literature of the extremist outfits to magnetise persons who do not subscribe to their hard-core ideology.This point to a grand design slowly evolved by the extremist organisations operating in the state.

Such references create an impression among the public that these organisations are fighting the cause of justice and are not confined issues concerning the Muslim community alone.

The documents seized by the Ernakulam police also contain the list of incidents which the SIMI considered ‘torture of Muslims,’ which include the Nadapuram violence. Similar literature has been recovered from many parts of the state which is meant to create a kind of persecution phobia in the Muslim community.

Inflammatory pamphlets were distributed secretly during the Nadapuram incidents and after the Marad massacre. The visuals of Gujarat violence, the communal riots in North India and police excesses in Kashmir are also used to whip up communal passion among the youth.

The Muslim persecution is then linked with the upper caste torture of the Dalits and the Backward Classes. The presence of some non-Muslim persons in the campaign will give a ‘secular’ and ‘progressive’ look to the whole issue.

The youths, who pass through these ‘structured programmes’, will be the ideal recruits for disruptive activities. They will be further energised by the examples of resistance movements in Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq
