For the uninitiated, on 11 July, the ATS first had arrested two suspected terrorists Minhaj Ahmed and Maseeruddin alias Musheer, linked with al Qaeda’s Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, from Lucknow. Arms, explosive materials had been recovered from their possession. The two arrested men reportedly planned suicide bombings and other such terrorist attacks in the crowded areas of Lucknow and other in the state.

Last year, ahead of Independence Day, several journalists in Lucknow had received an audio message from numbers originating from MalaysiaCanada and different parts of the US. The message was about protests on Independence Day to raise voices against the construction of the Supreme Court-ordered Ram temple in Ayodhya. It demanded a separate nation, Urdustan, for Indian Muslims.
