A van ran over pedestrians causing multiple casualties in the London Bridge area. The vehicle has yet again been used as a weapon of terror. The ISIS has made the truck or any vehicle as the choice of weapon. Be it Nice in France, Germany and now London, the vehicle has become the most popular weapons for jihadis.
The Sydney siege is yet another dangerous reminder called Lone Wolf Terrorism. This is a concept that we have seen happening several times and the Kafeel Ahmed-Glasgow case just marked the beginning of that concept. While the reports suggest that the Sydney siege may be a case of lone terror, let us explore how much more dangerous this concept is. A lone wolf terrorist is one who acts independently. He subscribes to a particular terrorist group’s ideology but is not part of it. What better scenario for a terrorist group which has people freelancing for them and propagating their message free of cost without them have to invest anything.
A section of the media referried to Dr Sabeel Ahmed, the brother of the Glasgow Bomber (Kafeel Ahmed) as the Motu doctor of the Bangalore assassination plot. The man himself now informs that this is far from true.
I am working in Saudi Arabia as a doctor since 2008. I am deeply distressed and shocked to see my name crop up in a case that has been under investigation from sometime in 2012. The accusation is that police are fairly sure that a certain “motu doctor” is none other than me.
Firstly, no one, and I emphasize, no one has ever referred to me as “motu doctor.” The news articles have been falsely claiming that during the trauma that I underwent in the United Kingdom. Some journalists have interviewed some persons who used to refer to me as “motu”. This was never the case. Thus, the whole story of me being the “motu doctor” is a deliberate move to defame me and unnecessarily sully my name. Continue reading “Motu doctor- That is not me”
The National Investigation Agency is on the look out for a person by the name Motu Doctor who is alleged to be inovlved in the plot that was hatched to kill prominent Hindus across the country. The NIA had named Motu doctor as the 22nd accused in their chargesheet but had no clue about his wherabouts.
As per a report of the Intelligence Bureau, there are over 23 splinter groups in the country which are regularly plotting assassinations of political leaders in the country. It is a well known fact that Narendra Modi tops this list and is said to be top on the hit list of almost all terrorist groups.
However the latest intelligence bureau report would suggest that there are several splinter groups which have been plotting the assassination of the Gujarat Chief Minister and ironically the IB has also taken the names of some Hindus in this list. While some Muslim radicals have very often quoted the Godhra incident to put Modi on top of their list, according to the Intelligence Bureau there are a around three to four radical Hindu groups comprising four to five members who are also plotting something similar.

Dr Imran Ahmed alias Immu bhai who was arrested in Bangalore in connection with a plot aimed at assasinating scores of Hindu leaders would be crucial to the investigation which had shown signs of withering away. The National Investigating Agency made this arrest in Bangalore while Dr Ahmed says that he had visited the country on a fake passport.
What is ironical about this accused is that he is related to Kafeel Ahmed the Glasgow bomber.
The sentencing of Mohammad Niaz Abdul Rasheed, an Indian national by a French Court in connection with a case of terrorism is proof of the fact that lone wolf terrorism is a major threat. Rasheed a resident of Tamil Nadu was sentenced to 8 years in prison for a criminal conspiracy that involved a terrorist act in France.
Rasheed a resident of Trichy in Tamil Nadu is a mechanical engineer by profession. Belonging to a strata of educated Muslim youth, he is an example of what radicalisation can do to a person. In his early years, he joined with the Students Islamic Movement of India. According to the Indian Intelligence agencies, he joined the SIMI at the age of 21.
