Two days after a car bomb blast occurred in Malappuram Collectorate premises in Kerala, the investigating agencies have found a letter threatening of another blast to avenge Dadri beef victim Mohammed Akhlaq’s murder.
Apart from a few batteries and wires, the police recovered a paper box, a letter and a pen drive. The pen drive contains photographs of PM Modi and videos of Babri Masjid demolition, Gujarat riots, photographs of Mumbai blast convict Yakub Memon and Dadri mob lynching victim Akhlaq.
The recovery of picture of PM Modi perhaps suggests that he is on the hit list of the ‘Base Movement,’ another name for Tamil Nadu-based terror outfit “Al-Ummah.”
Al-Ummah, which came into existence just after Babri Masjid demolition, is believed to be behind the Malappuram blast.
The letter, with the photograph of the killed al-Qaeda head Osama Bin Laden, had references to alleged human rights violations in the country, including the killing of Mohammed Akhlaq in the name of eating beef.
The pendrive also contains the message that the ‘Base Movement’ is determined to carry out more such attacks on courts in Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.
The ‘Base Movement’ has also threatened that there will be another blast.
In the past nine months, low-intensity blasts were carried out in Chittoor of Andhra pradesh, where in April the first blast took place in the premises of a local court compound. Blasts have also occurred in Kollam (Kerala), Mysuru (Karnataka) and Nellore (AP).
Al Ummah had earlier tried to kill BJP Leader LK Advani in 1998 in Coimbatore.
Al Ummah owes its allegiance to Al Qaeda, and has behind the killing of RSS activists in Tamil Nadu, apart from carrying out a blast at Chennai’s RSS office earlier. It is believed that several radical Muslim organisations, along with Al Ummah, had created a “base movement” and are trying to avenge “injustices” done unto them.
