Foreigners who attended Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz to be tried for violating visa rule

Sirf News has accessed from the police the records of many Tablighi Jamaat associates who have returned to or been to the Northeast and non-Muslims who passed through the area and returned to the states of the region

Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

On Wednesday, terrorists attacked the famous Dharamshala gurdwara in Kabul, killing 11 people and leaving 11 injured. Terrorist organisation Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the attack but Indian security agencies suspect the Haqqani network, a terrorist organisation backed by Pakistan, to be behind the attack.

Indian agencies had been alert for an attempt to attack the offices attached to the Indian embassy in Kabul.

India has strongly condemned this attack and termed it “cowardly”, expressing condolences for those killed in the attack. According to a press release issued by the Ministry of External Affairs, India will provide all possible help to Hindus and Sikhs in Afghanistan.

India said at a time when the world is fighting the coronavirus pandemic, such a dastardly attack on a religious place of minorities in Afghanistan shows the satanic instincts of those who do it and those who help the terrorists. India has praised the security personnel of Afghanistan who took on the attackers and are bravely protecting Afghanistan and its people.

India had expressed confidence in the government of Afghanistan, responsible for peace and stability of that country, but Kabul seems to have no deterrence power to fight terrorism.

Indian intelligence agencies suspect that behind this is the hand of Pakistan’s agencies, which are trying to increase their strength in Afghanistan after the new US-Taliban peace agreement. This is the second attack after the peace deal, meant to intimidate India, a source said.

Indian security agencies have information that the Haqqani network, a terrorist organisation backed by Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI, may attack the Indian embassy or other Indian officials in Afghanistan. However, the security system at the Indian facilities is so strong that the terrorists attacked a religious site of Afghan Sikhs and Hindus.

This gurudwara had been on the radar of terrorists. On the request of India, the Afghan government had strengthened the security system there much earlier, but it proved inadequate.

The Haqqani Network is an internationally banned terrorist organisation. The ISI has nurtured it in the same way as supporting the Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba to carry out terrorist attacks in India.
