Indian Mujahideen claims respoinsibility for blasts
The e-mail sent by the Indian Mujahideen [Images] minutes before the bomb blasts in New Delhi on Saturday is quite similar in its tone and language with the group's previous two e-mails. In Saturday's mail dated '12 Ramadan, 1429 AH' the Indian Mujahideen has demanded 'Vacate the land of Babri as soon as you can.'

The e-mail says, 'Your oppression will always be revenged Inshallah though after years to come. Never assume that we have forgotten the demolition of Babri Masjid and by Allah we can never forget it! It is that grave mistake of yours which will make you taste humiliation for generations to come. Babri Masjid was and will remain to be our glorious self esteem and Inshallah, we will prove it to you a hornet's nest in which you have immersed your bare hand, unaware of the pain to come.'

The e-mail complains about what it describes as the media's biased reporting about the recent anti-Christian violence in Orissa and about the weak and insufficient media coverage of the bomb blasts in Kanpur in which two Bajrang Dal activists died.

It mocks the Gujarat police investigation of the Ahmedabad [Images] blasts and claims that Uttar Pradesh [Images] cleric Abu Bashir is innocent of the crime.

The e-mail hints indirectly that the group may also resort to abduction and ransom.

It threatens 'disastrous consequences of the injustice and oppression inflicted upon the Muslims all over the country.'

It says, 'With this message, we once again declare that our intense, accurate and successive attacks like the one you will see exactly 5 minutes from now, Inshallah, will continue to punish you even before your earlier wounds have healed.'

It declares it planted nine bombs in the capital.

The e-mail targets the police and its investigation against the Students Islamic Movement of India. It names the police of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh [Images], Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

The e-mail describes the police investigation in these states as 'the never ending hostile hatred in your hearts against Islam and its people.'

The individuals behind the e-mail appear to be well informed about the Indian police. It names some Gujarat police officers and predictably Gujarat and Maharashtra's political leaders, but it also claims that, 'We are aware of your recent night raids at Ansarnagar, Mograpada, in Andheri (northwest Mumbai) and the harrassment and trouble you created there for the Muslims.'

The e-mail notes how in 2006, 'in Nanded, there was a bomb blast in the house of an RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) activist where two RSS activists went to Hell. After that in March 2008, there were bomb blasts at two places in Tamil Nadu. This time also VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) activists were arrested by the Tamil Nadu police who confessed that 'Yes. We were involved', claims the e-mail.

The e-mail says the RSS is against 'Muslims, Dalits and Christians'. The Indian Muhajideen has also vowed to fight for injustice and pain inflicted on Kashmiri Muslims during the Amarnath Yatra [Images] crisis. The Sangh Parivar is not its only target. The e-mail also targets the Congress party.

'The Central Congress Government which pretends to be the well wisher of Muslim interests has always treacherously hurt them and used them to come in power since Independence,' the e-mail notes. 'It is this double-faced attitude of the Congress that has secured its vote bank, and still allowed it to silently commit one of the most heinous crimes against the Muslim nation ever witnessed by history -- the demolition of Babri Masjid.'

The e-mail claims 'We have carried out this attack in the memory of two most eminent Mujahids of India: Sayyed Ahmed Shaheed and Shah Ismail Shaheed (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon them) who had raised the glorious banner of Jihad against the disbelievers in this very city of Delhi [Images].'

Lastly, the e-mail warns 'remember, it is not at all difficult for us to attack you in states like Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh [Images], Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Kerala [Images] etc.'
