I am really filled with sorrow to post such posts on my blog. Such a wonderful and peaceful city is now the hub of terrorist activities. Kindly post your comments on this issue on this blog.
Come lets make Belgaum a safer and better place.
Suspected Islamic terrorist Liyakatali Sayeed, who was arrested on May 14 from his house at Kusru Nagar in Malmaruti extension, is a dedicated Jihad activist.
Sources close to the this website’s newspaper said that Liyakatali was involved in Jihadi activities and tried his best to misguide and motivate educated Muslim youths in Belgaum to join the cause.
Liyakatali, who had returned to Belgaum from London nine months ago, had succeeded in influencing a few Muslim youth. After striking up a friendship with them, he would show them CDs of atrocities on Muslims across the world, telling them to adopt ‘tit for tat’ methods.
According to sources, a few young Muslims responded positively to Liyakatali. It is said that he provoked the youth to take revenge for the post-Godhra riots in Gujarat. He also took part in the protest rally against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi at Rani Channamma Circle on October 30, 2007. He had covered his face to shield his identity. The video clippings, which are in police possession, have confirmed Liyakatali’s participation in the agitation. He was seen shouting slogans to hang Modi, according to sources.Sources said that Liyakatali identified a few images when the police showed him the video clippings.
Liyakat had produced an LPG bomb at a house in Azam Nagar before carrying it to Shindholli for the `ignition test.’
However, the police are unable to find since how long Liyakat has been engaged in these activities. He was in London for many years running his security agency before coming to Belgaum to attend his sister’s marriage, which was held recently. The top police officials have declined to comment on whether Liyakat had been involved in such activities even before he landed in India.
Meanwhile, Nasir Patel, another arrested was produced to Court in Belgaum on Saturday. After being in police custody for sometime, he has not been remanded to the judicial custody. A resident of Azam Nagar, Nasir Patel had stored objectionable information and literature in his PC.
President of Rashtriya Hindustan Sena Pramod Mutalik has alleged that at least three police officials in Belgaum are involved in abetting the suspected terrorists. He said his association had already informed the names of the three officials to the higher authorities.Mr Mutalik also said several areas in Belgaum were housing muslims of Bangladesh origin. These areas, he alleged had become a haven for terror activities and called upon authorities concerned to drive all residents staying illegally in Belgaum.
Several muslim leaders of Belgaum led by the Belgaum (North) MLA, Feroz Sait met Superintendent of Police Hemant Nimbalkar on Saturday to ensure that none of the innocent youth were affected in the process of investigation
