Rakesh Maria: LeT planned to project the 26/11 attack as ‘Hindu terror’ | India News

MUMBAI: The former Mumbai police commissioner, Rakesh Maria, said Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) had planned to project the Mumbai terror attack 26/11 as a case of “Hindu terror” and that Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Kasab He would die as the Samir of Bengaluru. Chaudhari
In her memoirs ‘Let Me Say It Now’ published on Monday, Maria mentioned about the investigation conducted by him in the terrorist attack of Mumbai 26/11, which was planned by LeT and Pakistan’s hand was also unearthed.
According to excerpts from the book, ISI and LeT (from Pakistan) struggled to eliminate Kasab in jail, as it was the key evidence that linked them to the attack and the Dawood Ibrahim gang had the task of eliminating it.
While describing LeT’s plan to project the attack on 11/26 as “Hindu terror,” Maria wrote: “If everything went as planned, Kasab would have died as Chaudhari and the media would have blamed the attack on the” Hindu terrorists. ”
According to reports, the terrorist organization had also planted fake ID cards with Indian addresses of the terrorists.
In a photograph of Kasab published after the terrorist attack, Maria mentioned that “it was the work of central agencies. Mumbai police struggled not to reveal any details to the media that feared for security.”
In the photograph, Kasab was seen wearing a red thread on his right wrist, which is believed to be a sacred Hindu thread. This led many to believe the theory that the perpetrators planned to blame the 11/26 attacks as “Hindu terror.”
“There would be headlines screaming in the newspapers saying how the Hindu terrorists had attacked Mumbai. On top of the television, journalists would have gone directly to Bengaluru to interview their family and neighbors. But, unfortunately, it had not worked out like this and here I was, Ajmal Amir Kasab of Faridkot in Pakistan, “Maria wrote in the book.
He also said that the heroic feat of Mumbai Tukaram Omble’s martyr to capture Kasab alive was key to thwarting this plan.
According to the book, “Kasab joined the ranks of LeT to commit robberies and had nothing to do with jihad. Such was, however, indoctrination, that Kasab was led to believe that Muslims were not allowed to offer Namaaz in India”.
He was therefore shocked when his visit to a mosque was facilitated near the Metro cinema, Maria mentions in the book.
According to the former police officer, Kasab received a one-week license and Rs 1.25 lakh before being sent to the mission to attack Mumbai.
He (Kasab) gave his family money for his sister’s wedding, he added.
In one of the most horrific terrorist attacks in the country’s history, 166 people died and more than 300 were injured when 10 heavily armed terrorists from Pakistan created chaos in Mumbai on November 26, 2008.
Kasab, the only terrorist captured alive, was straddled on November 21, 2012.
