New revelations are being made daily in the charge sheet of the National Investigation Agency ‘NIA’ regarding the organizations involved in terrorist and subversion activities. While the Popular Front of India (PFI) has harbored the nefarious intention of making India an ‘Islamic’ state by 2047, global terrorist organizations like ‘IS’ are also helping in furthering this intention in many ways. In the charge sheet filed by the NIA against 68 accused belonging to PFI, it has been revealed that they were engaged in fulfilling their objective through a dangerous strategy. A separate wing was formed for this. The ‘Crypto-BTech-IED’ nexus has also been revealed in another charge sheet of the probe agency. Funds are being transferred by IS to its operatives from abroad through crypto currency. Radicalized youth with B.Tech qualification are preparing IEDs at the behest of IS.
According to the charge sheets filed by the National Investigation Agency on Friday in two separate cases, 68 PFI activists in Kerala and Tamil Nadu were working towards making India an Islamic state. The number of charge sheets filed by the NIA in the PFI case has gone up to four. The first charge sheet was filed on March 13 in Jaipur and the second charge sheet in Hyderabad on March 16. PFI workers were tricking the Muslim youth and taking them on the path of radicalism. For this, they were given training ranging from weapons training to making IEDs, conducting terrorist attacks and raising funds.
The charge sheet presented in Kerala also mentions the brutal murder of Palakkad resident Srinivasan by the PFI cadre. NIA raided more than 100 locations. About 17 such properties were attached, which have been related to terrorism. During the investigation, 18 bank accounts were also frozen. A conspiracy was hatched to spread violence and jihad in a large part of the country. Its aim was to make India an Islamic state by 2047.
The Union Home Ministry had last year banned the Popular Front of India for five years under the UAPA Act. After this, the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization ‘ISIS’ came in support of Popular Front of India. ISIS had published an article in its magazine ‘Voice of Khorasan’ regarding PFI and SIMI. PFI was praised in it. The special thing is that PFI had created many types of wings and units for its purpose. Even a separate reporting wing was created. In addition to physical training, various types of units were formed to provide arms training. The service team also had an important role to play. To meet any target, there was also a hit team along with the service team. Whenever required, targets were assigned by the PFI to its loyal and highly trained cadres of ‘Service Teams’. As ‘Executors’, they are called ‘Dar-ul-Qaza’.

The Islamic State’s role has also come to the fore in the two accused against whom the probe agency has filed a charge sheet in the Shivamogga case in Karnataka. The case pertains to a conspiracy to further the activities of the Islamic State by carrying out activities of arson, sabotage and violence in Karnataka. Prem Singh was murdered on August 15, 2022 in Shivamogga (Karnataka). The local police registered the case, but in September 2022, the NIA started the investigation by registering the case again. Maaz Muneer Ahmed and Syed Yasin, BTech graduates from Shivamogga, were accused of planning to target public and private properties, including godowns, liquor shops, hardware shops, vehicles and properties of citizens belonging to a particular community. For this, he was taught the lesson of fundamentalism through online medium by the handlers sitting abroad. Their aim was also to further the conspiracy hatched by the Islamic State. Both the accused had carried out more than 25 incidents of arson and sabotage.

Maaz and Syed continued to get help from many other terrorist organizations as well. Both these accused were preparing to buy explosives and make IEDs. Syed Yasin test blasted an IED on the Varahi river bank in Shivamogga. There he also lit the Indian National Flag. He recorded a video of the incident to establish his anti-India credentials in the eyes of his bosses. Funds were transferred from abroad to these terrorist operatives of IS. The payment was being made in crypto currency by the online handler. Maaz transferred crypto currency equivalent to about Rs 1.5 lakh from online handlers to the accounts of his friends. Syed Yasin also asked for 62 thousand in the account of one of his friends. When he planned to detonate the IED at the Kadri temple in Mangaluru, it went off prematurely due to a fault in the timer. Right now many other accused are also being interrogated in this case.
