West Bengal under Mamata regime is fast becoming a haven for Islamic terrorists. Crude bomb-making sweatshops are mushrooming throughout the state and have almost achieved the status of a cottage industry. However, novice bomb makers sometimes cause explosions while making the bombs. Back in June, 2 men suffered injuries while making crude bombs when the explosives went off. They were engaged in this activity in a vacant school building. In May 2021, shortly after the poll results announcing Banerjee’s third term as the State CM, 11-year-old Seikh Nasiruddin was killed after receiving a fatal head injury, when a crude bomb went off as he was playing with it. The boy had mistook it for a toy.
Recently three neo-Jamaat-ul- Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) terrorists were arrested in Kolkata. It is being suspected that they were setting up terror modules in the state and may have links with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (HuJI) and Al-Qaeda, police said. it will not be incorrect to say that the state ranks close after Kerala in terror activities and as a refuge for Islamic terrorists.
A recent incident has left the residents of the state shocked. Curiously, it was completely blacked out by the “national media.” On the morning of Saturday, July 17, a CD with threatening messages was recovered in front of Uttar Dinajpur Press Club. The message demanded that it should be shown on every news channel as soon as it was discovered by anyone, else they will be victims of dire consequences. Journalists at the Press Club immediately informed the district and the state police and appraised Sumit Kumar, the district Superintendent of police of the demand.
A large posse of the police force was sent for the Press Club from Raiganj Police Station and investigations commenced. The police decided to check the content of the video to further the investigations.
A masked man, in the video, identifying as Tousib Ali from the Islamist outfit threatened state government, commissions and ministers of killing 13000 candidates who had passed the state’s employment examination conducted for the recruitment of Upper Primary school teachers.
The masked man stated that 7 of his relatives had been rejected in the list of recruitment for teachers and were contemplating suicide due to their failure and if they took the step, the state and commission would be held responsible. He further demanded Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called for a press meet in the next 24-hours and took corrective actions, failing which, Tausib Ali will kill all the 13000 successful aspirants of the State Service Commission waiting for their recruitment. He also threatened of killing the Commission Officials and declare that the killing spree with continuing till the upcoming Durga Pujas.
The police have since taken the CD in their custody. Additional Superintendent of Police Arsh Verma has assured that his team was working to find out who had placed the CD at the Press Club and what the real motive behind the threatening message was. Investigations have already started and are underway after authenticating the CD.
