Mumbai, Nov 26: When this correspondent once asked a Pakistan journalist about Sajid Mir alias Sajeed Majeed, he said that the man in question is a maulvi in Pakistan and there is nothing more to him. It was quite evident that in Pakistan under the watchful eyes of the ISI, it is very hard to tell the truth especially when it comes to naming strategic assets who are used to attack India.
The statement by senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy that when a Pakistan cricket team comes to India then ISI agents too visit is an interesting one and there has been one major instance in the past to support that view.
Bengaluru, Nov 26: When we speak about the 26/11 attack, we often refer to the likes of Hafiz Saeed and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi. However, if one were to look at the investigations that have been conducted both by India and the United States of America, it becomes clear that the operative who managed to do the most damage was Sajid Mir.
Sajid Mir is an often discussed name and while the world swears that there is a man of this name who exists, Pakistan till date terms him as a fictitious character.
France, like India has been on the hit-list of Jihadis for quite sometime now and the attack on Charlie Hebdo for the second time since 2011 shows just that.
Yakub to ship 60,000 rounds of ammunition through the sea into India. Ahmed Yakub was appointed and cleared by Sajid Mir who incidentally was the handler of David Headley. This bit of the investigation was even confirmed by the US Treasury.
Abu Jundal alias Zabiuddin Ansari, the Hindi tutor of the ten terrorists who carried out the 26/11 attack says that the elusive Sajid Mir was very much in the custody of the Pakistani officials, but was let off easily two days after the attack.
Jundal who was one of the men in the control room at Karachi when the attack was taking place had stated earlier that Sajid Mir who goes by the alias Sajeed Majid was also part of the control room.
In a week from now it will be five years since the most horrific attack on Indian soil- the 26/11 attack. David Headley, the former CIA mole turned rogue will without a doubt continue to be the most mysterious person in this entire episode.
Reading his interrogation report over and over again would indicate that Headley has not spoken everything that one should know. Be it his ISI contacts or even the Ishrat Jahan episode, Headley never speaks anything clearly. An officer with the National Investigation Agency who had questioned him in the year 2010 tells rediff.com that Headley appears to be clear, but is clearly hiding a lot. Although he has nothing to lose at the moment, it is clear that he is still under pressure.
While there is a lot that has been spoken about the Lakhvis and the Saeeds, the man who is still on the lose is the international operative, Sajid Mir. No amount of coaxing, no amount of requesting by either India or the United States of America have led to Sajid Mir, which goes on to show how important this man is.
