Once again after the exposure that the UPA government tortured officials to create the ‘Hindu terror’ or ‘saffron terror’ narrative, and the disclosure that the Indian National Congress dispensation distorted the story of encounter killing of Ishrat Jahan, Sonia-Rahul Gandhi’s party is in the dock. Mumbai’s former police commissioner Rakesh Maria has made a sensational disclosure about the Mumbai attack in his book. He has written in his book Let Me Say It Now that if the Lashkar plan had been successful, the headlines of ‘Hindu terrorism’ would have appeared on all newspapers and TV channels following the 26/11 terror attack on India by Ajmal Qasab (Kasab) and his gang.
Maria wrote in his book that if the Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, who was involved in the Mumbai attack of 26 November 2008, was killed on the spot, the world would probably have considered the incident to be an instance of Hindu terrorism. The Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba, which carried out the 26/11 attack, hatched a very dangerous conspiracy to make it look like a terrorist attack by a Hindu outfit of India.
Reacting to the book, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that the Indian National Congress (INC) had tried to mislead the country in the name of Hindu terrorism. He said that the INC had to bear the brunt of this in 2014 and 2019. “The public vanquished them,” he said.
On Maria’s book, Goyal said he should have disclosed these things when he was the commissioner of police. Goyal asked what for Maria waited so long.
Goyal said, “The first thing was why Maria said all this thing right now. He should speak all these things when he was the police commissioner. In fact, if any information in the service rules is with the senior police officers then action should be taken against them. I think there was a very deep conspiracy by the Congress, by the UPA. Another example of lies and deceit was seen when he tried to create a completely false Hindu terror… at the behest of Chidambaram Sahib.”
“I condemn the Congress and all those who tried to mislead the country with false allegations of Hindu terror. His fault was in 2014 and in 2019 … the people of the country defeated him completely. I understand Terror has no religion. Terrorist is Terrorist and our government strongly condemns what Congress tried to implicate some people on false charges,” Goyal said.
In this book, Maria has made a big disclosure about Ajmal Kasab, the only terrorist alive after the 26/11 Mumbai attack. In it, he wrote that Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI had tried to bring the 26/11 Mumbai attack to Hindu terrorism. Fake identity cards were sent along with 10 attackers to prove them to be Hindus.
According to Maria, the Mumbai police did not want to release the photo or more information about the terrorist Kasab. Police had tried their best not to leak the terrorist’s details in the media. The retired IPS officer also claims that the face of Pakistan was being exposed during the court trial, hence the gang of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was found to have killed Kasab.
Before this, one of the officials referred to in the first paragraph of this story, RVS Mani, had already revealed how the UPA regime was manipulating the Kasab story.
