Mangaluru: I am innocent, whole family is distraught due to ‘terrorist’ label – Abdul Rauf


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, Aug 20: “I am innocent. Media has labelled me as terrorist. My whole family is undergoing mental agony due to this. This situation should not happen to anyone be he a Hindu or a Muslim,” said Abdul Rauf, a resident of Govindoor in Beltangady.

Rauf was speaking at the press conference organized by MLA U T Khader at the Circuit House of the city on the morning of Tuesday, August 20.

Abdul Rauf said, "I am working at Al Madeena at Manjanady. I am totally unaware about the situation. Soon after the media highlighted about the arrest, I received many calls from the police, family and friends. Media claimed that it got information from sources. If it is true, they need to reveal the source. During my eighth standard in school, I joined Al Madeena as an orphan, completed my education and now I am working there. I am totally unaware as to how my name was highlighted in media about my arrest.

“I have complained about this to the superintendent of police and have asked him to conduct investigation on the false allegations on me by media. I am deeply saddened by this development. Whether it is a Hindu or a Muslim, such false allegations should not be made by the media. I have come from a poor background. My mother fainted when she heard this news which was a shock to her. Media has said that they got this information from sources. Now the media itself has to clarify the source and give a clarifying statement,” he said.

It may be recalled, sections of the media reported that satellite calls made from Nyayatarpu village in Beltangady to a location in Pakistan. It was reported by a few media channels that the calls were intercepted after a terrorist disclosed details of the satellite call during an interrogation. 

Reliable authorities in Dakshina Kannada rejected reports of an arrest made by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Beltangady. Superintendent of police BM Laxmi Prasad further clarified that police are not looking for suspected terrorists in Beltangady.

The reports of satellite calls to Pakistan and arrest emerged at a time of heightened security in Dakshina Kannada and other parts of Karnataka after an alert was issued in the state.

    Dear first ducate your madrasa maulanas to stop provoking youth against other religion and india... naturally everything will stop... Modiji is taking correct steps and trying to resolve terrorist issues.. 1 or 2 things might turn out wrong, but he has to try his best.. if he keeps mum like congis did thinking it will hurt one caste people then there will be no attempt to end terrorism and be in peace... have you never seen people attacks and so many being killed by terrorist.. be patience and spread peace and love....

    this peace and love should come from all religion people.... but right now the world is facing issue from terrorism ..... in the name of caste stating that if you kill other caste people you will reach jahanum.... even educated people fall for this kind of stupid preaching.... god know when human beings will learn that one day everyone are going to die and there is no use of religion and its not going to save us from death...

    Whereas RSS and its subsidiaries can freely propagate hate among innocent youths from backward classes :)

    and kids of top guys will be climbing the ladder by getting quality education, then high position in MNCs within or outside India.

    In most of the muslim orphanages, they even take care of children,who have lost their father or who's parents can't afford their childrens education etc. So, don't jump into wrong conclusion.

    This is fishy for sure.. I am not saying he is a terrorist but there is something fishy in what he said. If he is honest he need not worry and law will take its own course. My personal opinion is there is nothing wrong in investigating anyone who is a suspect. I know for a fact that there are people who just live in lies . They can go to any extent and they are so cheap and keep telling lies and go to police station to file a false complaints.

    Dear Abdul, I believe you and what you have stated. I am sure you will be proved innocent.
    Have belief in yourself and the law of the land. Fight your case hard, if needed.
    I have a firm conviction that no innocent person should be punished simply because he or she belongs to a particular religion.

    Dear Abdul,
    We all know there is only one God ! Isn't it?
    Whether I pray to Bhagvan or you pray to Allah or the Christians pray to Christ/God, our prayers reach only one entity, i.e. called God. So, we all are equal and same and I always felt there is no difference. Differences between us have been created by humans, not by God. Once we all realize that, then there will be no fight or misunderstanding among people.

    Such media should be banned and responsible sources need to be imprisoned for spoiling the entire life of the victims.. Most of the media indulging in false propaganda for decades against youths belong to particular one community and later period of time they turn blind eyes when the accused get clean chit. Still there are many youths perhaps they now become old languishing in jails on terror charges across India without any trial.
