New Delhi: Ex-cop Rakesh Maria’s new book ‘Let Me Say It Now’ has begun to create a controversy of sorts after it claims that ISI wanted the Mumbai terror attack to look like a case of ‘Hindu Terror’. The capture of Ajmal Kasab alive by police constable Tukram Omble demolished the Pakistani secret service’s grand plan to peddle a fake narrative against Hindu organizations.
After the contents of the book came out the BJP General Secretary, Ram Madhav, has come out to denounce the Congress’ attempts to link RSS with the Mumbai attack.
He said, “Some intellectuals had attempted to link the Mumbai terror attack to RSS, they had the support of Congress leaders. Today it is revealed that it was a conspiracy by the ISI, and some so-called ‘intellectuals’ were trying to take this forward.”
The author of the book ‘Let Me Say It Now’ is a former police commissioner of Mumbai who headed the investigation into the Mumbai attack. In his book he reveals that the ISI had created a fake identity for Ajmal Kasab. According to the identity, Ajmal was to be Samir Chaudhari, who hailed from Bengaluru.
Ajmal Kasab also had a red thread on his wrist during the attack to make sure that the fake story of Hindu Terror is lapped up by the Indian public. The ISI knew that the media would take up the issue and blame the Mumbai attack on ‘Hindu Terror’.
Union Minister, Piyush Goyal, also blamed the UPA government for starting the false ‘Hindu Terror’ narrative and said that it was done at the behest of P. Chidambaram.
The Mumbai attack of 2008 was one of the worst attacks by Pakistan based terrorists on Indian soil. 166 people died and 300 injured when 10 terrorists trained in Pakistan unleashed violence at five locations across Mumbai.
