Mangaluru blast: Islamic outfit claims responsibility, warns of another attack


Mangaluru, Nov 24 (IANS): Islamic Resistance Council (IRC), an unknown Islamic outfit, on Thursday claimed responsibility for the November 19 Mangaluru autorickshaw blast and warned of another attack in future.

The outfit has also warned the ADGP (Law and Order), Alok Kumar, who is stationed at Mangaluru and personally monitoring the investigations into the blast case.

"Alok Kumar your joy would be short lived. You pay for your acts of dominance sooner," the outfit warned. The police sources have confirmed that they have taken the warning seriously. The probe in this regard has already been initiated by Central agencies.

Meanwhile, the probe revealed that the suspected terrorist Mohammad Shariq was planning to carry out explosion at Kadri Manjunatha Swamy temple 'Laksh Deepotsav' programme in Mangaluru.

Gokarnanatheshwara temple in Kudroli and Mangaladevi temple in Mangaluru were also his targets. The accused had kept the picture of Hindu God Shiva as his display picture on his mobile to conceal his identity, he said.

The probe has also revealed that the conspiracy was hatched to carry out blasts and put blame on Hindu organisations and to start debate on Hindu terrorism in the country.

A post has been put out on dark net by an Islamic outfit by the name Islamic Resistance Council (IRC) supporting the terror suspect of Mangaluru blast on Thursday. The investigating agencies have taken this development seriously and further intensified operations to get to the roots of terror network.

The statement released by Islamic Resistance Council stated that terror suspect arrested in the case of Mangaluru blast is their brother. The attempt was made to attack a temple in Kadri in Mangaluru city.

"Mangaluru has become fortress of saffron terrorists. Though our attempts this time have failed, we will get ready to carry out another attack by giving slip to state and Central investigating agencies," the statement read.

"Our brother's attempt to attack Kadri Hindu temple has failed. This attack was not successful. The state and Central agencies are trying to arrest our brothers. They are chasing them. However, we have been successful in getting out of the clutches of agencies. In future, another attack will be made," the statement also stated.

The agencies, which suspected the case of autorickshaw blast case to be part of global terror conspiracy, are now verifying the claim by the Islamic outfit.

The post is put out in Arabic language. The preliminary probe revealed the existence of Islamic Resistance Movement organisation and there are no traces or history of Islamic Resistance Council, sources said.

The agencies have found some links of IRC to terror outfit Hamas which is active in Iraq, Iran, Syria and Afghanistan.

The blast occurred on November 19 in an autorickshaw. The cooker bomb was designed to carry out a large scale attack to fuel communal tension in the coastal region and in the state.

The probe revealed that the attacker initially targeted the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai's programme and later wanted to blast it at a children's festival organised by one of the institutions affiliated to the RSS.

Home Minister Araga Jnanendra had declared that the case would soon be handed over to the NIA.

    What is the basis or proof that this warning letter is issued by IRC ? Moreover, they are not idiots to give early warning of the terrorist act or an attack. Did they issue any warning in the last incident. These type of warnings may make public more hyper and restless and may restrict business activities and public gatherings too. Tough job for insecurity agency and police.

    Intention is clear. Get these people at each other's throat. They argue vehemently and a spark is what will lead to fire of destruction. Vehement argument is in aid of a dialogue to communicate across, not to annihilate each other; democracy & dialogue in democracy is very alien concept to many and that is the source of leveraging this disadvantage towards stoking trouble and primary source of this warning/wishful thinking. Bring it on baby, but come out in open - do not hide like a coward while declaring this warning. We have matured enough to understand that our solutions need not necessarily result in annihilation in this perceived zero sum game which is inherently a communication problem (what Mullah says, and what is actually the reality).

    Easy to write these letters. Anyone can write them. Some time later (after the assembly elections are over ) he will be released for lack of evidence. No one will question who was actually behind this letter and cooker blast. The purpose is served. We may witness some more attacks like this before the kar Nataka elections.

    Nawaz, I have only one question for you - why all Muslim brothers go totally silent when terrorists' attacks were done by your utterly mislead youth, who believes your prophets teachings, that if they kill infidels meaning - one who don't follow or believe in Islam should be killed, in fact slaughtered irrespective of their age and the one who kills gets moxha - 72 virgins in heaven! None of you condemn the act - why? Now don't bring fights between the countries for political reason. My question is purely based on what is being taught in Kuran. Do you have an answer? Any religious book should teach Love, forgiveness, tolerance in other words - Love thy Neighbour as you love yourself. Do you know that your silence to such atrocities is nothing but your approval?

    It is really strange that in other news article this following was the news. Quote: "Sources in the intelligence agencies have confirmed that the original target of suspected terrorist was to carry out the blast at the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai's programme. However, since he missed the bus at boarding point Mysuru to reach Mangaluru, his plans were changed." I have 2 questions: 1) This statement from this so called Islamic Resistance Council claims that Kadri Temple was their target as opposed to the news i quoted above where it says that Bommai was their target. 2) When this so called Islamic Resistance Council is such a big Council; how is it is possible that his plans changed by missing a bus. I mean, they are dependent on the bus for their plan of this kind of attack they planned?; and again it was using pressure cooker for the attack?.
