Digvijaya ‘pins’ Mumbai attack on RSS

Digvijaya has lent weight to the theory that 26/11 was a conspiracy hatched by the RSS.

Digvijaya Singh may love stirring the pot,but guess what lies at the centre of the book to which the Congress general secretary has lately lent his weight and voice? That 26/11 was a conspiracy hatched by the RSS,Mossad and CIA.

This is one of the many points that Aziz Burney,group editor of Rashtriya Sahara (Urdu),puts forth in his book,“RSS ka shadayantra,26/11”. It was at the launch of this book on December 6 that Singh claimed he had talked to Hemant Karkare before he was killed,and that he appeared concerned about threats to his family from saffron activists.

Burney calls Digvijaya a “like-minded person”. “When two like-minded people talk,you can’t say who has influenced whom,but yes,we both benefit from each other,” he says.

Since the December 6 speech,Burney has brought out a fresh edition of his book,incorporating Digvijaya’s remarks and the “expected furore” it generated.

The book is a collection of Burney’s writings in Rashtriya Sahara (Urdu),besides contributions from some ideological fellow-travellers,one of whom is Amareesh Mishra. “I have incorporated them because they reinforce what I feel,” Burney says. He says they are important because they have been authored by someone who is “Amareesh” and “Mishra” — in an obvious reference to the writer’s religious and caste identity.

Some of the theories propounded in the book include:

“Communal forces under the patronage of foreign agencies want to destroy India. America wants to destroy Pakistan and encircle China. Therefore,it wants India to get into the influence-zone of America and Israel. That is why Americans,British and Israelis were targeted. The Nariman House,according to eyewitnesses,was a centre for unknown Israelis. It is possible these people may have been involved in the attacks and may have killed their own people.”

“Was the Israeli Rabbi actually killed in the attack?,” the book asks,seeking to know if anybody had seen a photograph showing him injured. Burney adds the building had a hidden CCTV camera at the entrance. Shopkeepers apparently said they were unaware of the arrival of any strangers at the building. “How could nanny Sandra Samuel save a child? Why was she flown to Israel though she was an important eyewitness to the attack?”

For those who may be surprised by the thesis that Jews were killed with the help of Mossad,the book offers a counter-question: “Why not?” Zionism,it is argued,is known for killing ordinary Jews just as Hindutva is known for killing Mahatma Gandhi.

As for the “US link” to 26/11,the proof is David Headley,“who might have been an agent of al-Qaeda or Lashkar-e-Toiba,but who came to India in his capacity as an American”. “When he was inducted into LeT,he was taken in as an agent of FBI,” the book argues. “Whenever he was released after arrest for drug trafficking,he was let off only when he consented to be used by the FBI.” “The forged passport on which he came to India had been made at the instance or FBI or CIA.”

According to another article,“Basically the RSS has lost control of the organisation it had created. In the form of (Narendra) Modi,this organisation has forged a nexus with Mossad,which is in league with the ISI,engaged in destruction.” “Do remember the remote control of many jihadi groups active in Pakistan,Afghanistan and central Asia is in the hands of Mossad or CIA. Recently a group in Yemen was found to have been established by Mossad. Therefore,it is possible the terrorists who attacked Mumbai may have used Pakistan as their base,but they may have been drawn from different countries… At least one of them them,it has been learnt,belonged to Mauritius. It is emerging now that a Saudi (being described as Maulana Bedi) may have gathered these jihadis there and sent them here. It is essential to find out who provided money to him.”
