What is the real story behind ISIS Khurashan module in Lucknow?

One terror suspect was killed today as the anti-terror operation in Thakurganj area of Lucknow ended after almost 12 hours in the wee hours of Wednesday. The UP police denied earlier reports of 2 terrorists being holed up in a house in the outskirts of Lucknow. After opening the doors of the house, the police force went inside & found the terrorist dead inside along with weapons.

“At one point it appeared that more than one person was holed up inside the house,” Additional Director General of Police (Law & Order) Daljit Chaudhary said.

Chaudhary said that the operation “stands closed now. Rest of the legal formalities will subsequently take place.”

IG ATS Aseem Arun said that the terror suspect identified as Saifullah, was a member of the ISIS Khorasan module. Saifullah was linked to the group that triggered a low intensity blast in Bhopal-Ujjain train in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday morning, injuring 10 passengers. The morning blast on the Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train at Jabri Railway station was the first instance of a terror strike by an ISIS module in India.

Two other terrorists were also said to be involved with Saifullah. But the information about the involvement of these 2 terrorists has not been circulated by the mainstream media. They belong to the Sangbaaz association of J&K, which had earlier been endorsed by Pakistan, last month. The Sangbaaz association had already created its branches in Kanpur & Lucknow. Its inception can be traced to a song released by the Pakistani Army ‘Sangbaaz’, presenting Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Burhan Wani as a hero. There is a Kanpur Lucknow Khorasan Module which was operating behind the terror plot. This was a planned program with the help of the minority population in the form of a mob.

The other two terrorists were also reportedly caught by the UP Police. But before any significant action could be taken they were grabbed by the Muslim Mob & beaten down to death in Kanpur. They were killed so that there would be no evidence about the terror outfit & also to leave the police clueless.

The Madhya Pradesh Government had earlier provided inputs about the terror outfits to the UP Government, which the Akhilesh Yadav led government chose to ignore. MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan futher confirmed the involvement of the ISIS in the Bhopal-Ujjain blasts. He added that the MP Government had enough proof of the involvement of the ISIS in the passenger train blasts. Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that after planting the pipe bomb they uploaded its photograph & sent it to Syria. The blast occurred in a general coach of the train on Tuesday between 9.30 am & 10.00 am at the Jabri railway station on its way to Ujjain from Bhopal.

With the final phase of the UP election to be held today, there are certain questions to be asked. Why did the UP government or the mainstream media not disclose any information about the other two terrorists, who were also killed? When will the appeasement loving parties in UP (SP, Congress, and BSP) stop shielding terrorists? Will the common man ever understand the evil intentions of the opposition? With a strong Modi-led government predicted to sweep India’s largest state, it was certain that the Islamists would try their best to create mayhem & divert the attention of the people. The 3 terrorists were sent with the motive to cause some serious damage post-election in the state of UP. Their plans could not be properly executed, but we cannot just sit back & ‘discuss.’ For now, we need to contemplate on the fact that a large number of people were involved in shielding these terrorists & if this continues we can’t breathe easy.
