A Popular Front of India (PFI) activist who carried sharp weapons was arrested near Payyambalam beach in Kannur during a rally organized in support of the Ahmedabad serial bomb blast convicts. An exotic dagger was seized from the hands of 19-year-old Farhan Sheikh living at Khadeeja Manzil near the Chalad post office.
Even after the protest got over, a few PFI members refused to vacate the premises. When police asked them to disperse peacefully, the Islamists turned abusive and created a commotion. This made the local police suspicious and the deadly weapon was seized when they searched the accused.
Sheikh was arrested by Kannur Town Circle Inspector (CI) Sreejith Koderi. Locally called an S-knife, they were mostly found in the hands of the Islamic invaders who swept across Malabar. This weapon was almost 9 inches long and is known to inflict severe damage.
The CI confirmed that Sheikh took part in the entire protest march while carrying the weapon in his pockets. The Islamist admitted that he has been an active worker of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) for the past 4 years. Sreejith said that a case has been registered against the accused under the Arms Act. Sheikh was produced in court after questioning and remanded to judicial custody.
It is believed that similar weapons were used in the cold-blooded murder of Bajrang Dal activist Harsha in Shivamogga on Sunday. Police are wary since the radical Islamists have been brainwashed to draw their daggers for even trivial matters.
PFI is suspected of supplying and training its radical cadre on using these weapons on the unsuspecting public. Such protests organized by the PFI that challenge Bharat’s judiciary are happening all over Kerala.
Radical elements are organizing such protests unhindered by either the administration or the political class and police have remained mute spectators unless the PFI turn on the police itself. There are allegations that PFI goons from Kerala are behind crimes that happen in Karnataka and the ease with which they cross borders is causing suspicions.
The 49 terrorists convicted in the Ahmedabad blasts case are Muslims from different states, and except 38 of them face the gallows (at least for now), including three Keralites.
