IM warns on twitter about attacking Mumbai, security tightened


Mumbai, Jul 10 (PTI): A twitter account, purportedly belonging to terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM), has warned that the next target would be Mumbai, prompting the state authorities to tighten security across the city.

A Maharashtra ATS official said the initial assessment suggests that the account does not appear genuine but the investigators are not taking the matter lightly.

"All the officers of the ATS have been instructed to be alert and city police has been asked to ensure tight security," the official said.

Hours after Sunday's Bodh Gaya serial blasts, a tweet by @IndianMujahidin - which claims to be the IM's official Twitter account - said: "9 Dhamake Humne Karay (We carried out the nine blasts)".

The tweet about Mumbai -dated July 5, two days before the Bihar blasts - reads, "Hamara Agla Target Mumbai Hai. Rock Sago Toh Rock Lo, 7 days Left (Our next target is Mumbai. Stop us if you can. Seven days left)."

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is also probing the authenticity of the account.

Mumbai police sensitised its personnel and tightened the security across the metropolis.

Joint Police Commissioner (Law and Order) Sadanand Date refused to respond to the twitter post but added, "Going by the current situation, we have sensitised our policemen and appropriate steps are being taken to ensure security at vulnerable places. We have also alerted the security men at vital locations."

"We appeal to the citizens to be alert and inform the policemen in case they find any suspicious object," Date told PTI.

Nakabandis were being conducted and patrolling had been intensified at strategic locations, police said, adding that frisking at the suburban railway stations was being done and dog squads were put on service.

"Vehicles are being stopped randomly for checking," said a police official.

Railway compartments were being checked and announcements made to report to police in case passengers found any suspicious object, a railway policeman said.

    This image problem can be rectified only by muslim majority countries by their behaviour with terrorists and minority rights. A clear message in ACTION that our religion does not endorse terrorism in any context will go a long way.
    People draw a few conclusions based on how minority is treated in these countries . Any other method of expressing this message of peace will bite dust. This is applicable for all countries .

    Jossey 's comment of namo a feku, let him speak of the corrupt free and truthful congress central govt, under the leadership of Illetrate Italian madam.(IIM). Our economy, growth, currency, fiscal deficit,current account defecifit and most importantly Inflation have all hit the roof. Because of corrupt unethical practises and if changes can be made, it can only be done by the Rambo NaMo. The leadership of Congress like Sonia G, Rahul (Amul) G, manmohan G, can't even tell the people of India, the reasons for this downturn. All citizens of this country need to have understanding from these unaccountable politicans who has put them and this mess and tell why should they be voted back to power in 2014 inspite showing such a decimal record.

    Dirty terrorists. Stop killing innocent people. Govt should ban all organizations such as popular front of india which advocate hate and injustice. The plan of terrorists is to destroy Mahabodi temple, but the plan of god is to make the buddha temple famous through u r plan. The result will be the terrorists loose and lost.

    This holy month of Ramzan is for patience, peace, sharing, good will, understanding, spirituality and unity.
    The word ISLAM means submission to God. Islam is also from the root “salaam” which means “peace”. All other religions are named after something important to them. Like Christianity after Christ, Hinduism after Valley of Hind, Buddhism after Buddha, etc. Islam however is based on Peace. This speaks a lot in itself.
    Sadly due to 7% of politically affiliated Islamists, Islam has been associated with Terrorism irrespective of the fact that has been no such evidence from any authentic source of knowledge. You should understand that these terrorists don't represent the 97% peace living Muslims all over the world.
    ‘Jihad’ is the most misunderstood of all terms in Islam. Literally, it means “struggle”. Early English translators however translated it as “The Holy War” and this is where the misconception cropped up from. In fact, as far as killing of innocent people is concerned, Islam has equated it to killing of whole humanity.

    The same was ordained to the people by earlier messengers too. The Quran says, “Because of that we ordained the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a human being – unless it be (in punishment) for murder or (and) to spread mischief (oppression & terrorism) on earth- it shall be as though he had slain all mankind whereas, if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he had saved the lives of all mankind. And indeed, there came unto them our messenger with all evidence of the truth: yet, behold, notwithstanding all this, many of them continue to exceed the limits on the land.” [Quran 5:32]
    Islam doesn’t allow any lay man to kill even a proved guilty person like Hitler. Even that authority is only to the Ruling Government, not any individual or a group. The terrorists choose to quote a verse alone, giving no clue about the verses that precede and follow it.

    India is the only country i guess where terrorist have the courtesy of saying their next target...reality check on Indian internal security. Another fact is when ever such statements are made security is beefed up,cctv are installed etc.after some days everyone will think its prank and back to the normal..then the blasts really come true. Then the blame game starts..we had the intelligence..we had warned etc.. What a funny situation..in a country where deaths are just statistics human lives do not really matter.
