RSS And BJP: Hindu ‘Extremists’ on the Radar of PFI

An intelligence note accessed exclusively by media shed light on the criminal plans of the Islamist organization PFI. It said the PFI has taken recourse to depute ‘Bayathees’, an Arabic term that means ‘agents of death’ or ‘Fidayeen’, who pledge their allegiance to their Amir (Chief) either to kill or get killed.

The Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) Monday revealed that the RSS headquarters in Nagpur and several top BJP leaders were the Popular Front of India (PFI) targets.

Reportedly, the members of PFI had plans to collect information about the movement of RSS leaders during the annual Dussehra event organized by the Hindu outfit. The divulgence comes just a week after NIA, CRPF and the state ATS raided people associated with PFI in 10 states and arrested hundreds of people.

“The PFI is planning a serious and menacing way to disturb public peace and tranquillity. They are “upset” after their senior leaders, E Abubucker, EM Abdur Rahiman, and others were detained in Tihar prison in New Delhi,” the note said.

The bayathees are asked to target the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Enforcement Directorate (ED), police and other government officials, who the organization perceives to be working against their interests. They have also been instructed to attack Hindu outfits and leaders to communalize the situation and stoke hatred among people.

NIA had on Thursday last week conducted raids across 10 states, including Assam, Bihar, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, and Telangana and arrested 106 PFI activists for allegedly supporting terror activities in the country.

The agency arrested 106 cadres, including top leaders of the organization. The maximum number of arrests was made in Kerala (22) followed by Maharashtra and Karnataka (20 each), Tamil Nadu (10), Assam (9), Uttar Pradesh (8), Andhra Pradesh (5), Madhya Pradesh (4), Puducherry and Delhi (3 each) and Rajasthan (2).

As per reports, the raids were conducted by joint teams of NIA, Enforcement Directorate (ED), and respective State Police, and the Union Ministry of Home Affairs was monitoring the action against the organization.
