How RSS plans to stop West Bengal from becoming West Bangladesh
With growing jihadi activity in West Bengal, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has decided to awaken the people to this menace. With infiltrations by the Jamaat-ul Mujahideen, Bangladesh going up several notches, the state has become a hub of terror activity. Cottage industries have been set up in West Bengal to prepare bombs and a rough estimate indicates that these modules have already prepared over 1,000 bombs.
RSS karyavaha (secretary) for the southern part of West Bengal Jishnu Basu told reporters that the people needed to be told about what lay in store if this kind of jihadi activity went on unabated. "We will also go to everybody and make them understand whether West Bengal will be able to continue its existence or become West Bangladesh," he said.
Basu also said that they would reach people irrespective of their political colour, religious belief and practice to in order to educate them on the danger posed by jihadi activities in the state.
In the name of the IS:
The merger of the JMB and the Islamic State is another cause for concern for the Intelligence Bureau. "It threatens national security and while studying the pattern, it becomes evident that the JMB carries out fieldwork in the name of the IS," an Intelligence Bureau official said. The JMB shares the same ideology as the IS and they have been working on setting up the Bengal Caliphate.
Investigators have also learnt that the Bengal Caliphate being planned by these groups would cover, Bangladesh, West Bengal, Assam and Jharkhand.
Investigations have also revealed that the IS-JMB combine is being headed by Abu Sulaiman, a man of Bangladeshi origin. He is the one who roped Musa into the outfit and convinced him to survey a few targets. It has also been revealed that the outfit members were told not to source any guns or bombs. They were told to focus on knife attacks only.
