ISI Activities in Assam
Statement Laid on The Table of The House of Assam Legislative Assembly
Under Item No. 12 Dated 6.4.2000
ISI ACTIVITIES IN ASSAM
Shri Prafulla Kumar Mahanta
Chief Minister, Assam
During the recent past, Assam Police has gathered sufficient evidence
to prove that the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI has been
actively involved in fomenting violence and terrorism in the State.
These activities are mainly in the following areas:
SUPPORT TO MILITANCY AND TERRORISM IN ASSAM
Promoting indiscriminate violence in the State by providing active
support to the local militant outfits.
Creating new militant outfits along ethnic and communal lines by
instigating ethnic and religious groups.
Supply of explosives and sophisticated arms to various
Causing sabotage of oil pipelines and other installations, communication
lines, railways and roads.
Promoting fundamentalism and militancy among local Muslim youth
by misleading them in the name of 'jehad'.
Promoting communal tension between Hindu and Muslim citizens by
way of false and highly inflammatory propaganda.
Assam Police is in possession of plenty of evidence to show that the
top ULFA leadership is
in touch with certain officials of the Pakistani High Commission in
Dacca. The ULFA leaders have been travelling to Pakistan regularly.
Pakistani agencies have already imparted arms training to hundreds of
ULFA cadres. According to the statement of scores of arrested ULFA leaders
including their self-styled Vice Chairman Pradip Gogoi, the Pakistani
officials in their High Commission in Dacca arrange for their passport
in various Muslim names and send them to Karachi. From Karachi airport,
they are whisked away in unmarked vehicles to the training centres.
Specific evidence to such trips by dozens of ULFA leaders are already
ISI has procured different passports for Paresh Barua, the self-styled
C-in-C of ULFA in different names. Assam Police has been able to procure
a copy of one passport issued to Paresh Barua in the name of Kamaruddin
Zaman Khan. Documentary evidence suggests that this Bangladeshi passport
has been obtained by fraudulent means with the help of an official of
the Pakistani High Commission.
During the recent Kargil conflict, the ULFA issued a statement condemning
Indian Government's role in Kashmir. The language of the above statement
was exactly the same as that issued by the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, a Pakistan
based terrorist outfit controlled by the ISI. This shows that even the
drafting of the above statement was probably made by Pakistani agencies.
TERRORISM ON RELIGIOUS LINES
Assam Police arrested the following four persons in Guwahati on August
10, 1999 while they were found moving about under suspicious circumstances
and contacting certain persons in different parts of the State.
Md. Fasih Ullah Hussaini @ Hamid Mahmood @ Khalid Mehmood, son
of Syed Habibulla, resident of Hyderabad Sind, Pakistan.
Md. Javed Wakhar @ Md. Musaffar @ Md. Mehraj @ Abdul Rahman Danish,
resident of Karachi, Pakistan.
Maulana Hafiz Md. Akram Mallick @ Musaffar Hassain @ Atabulla @
Bhaijan @ Abdul Awal, son of Md. Abdul Aziz of Village Mukam Shahwali,
Kupwara, J&K State.
Qari Salim Ahmed @ Abdul Aziz @ Sadat, son of Abdul Rashid, resident
of Village Mehilki, Dist. Muzaffarnagar, UP.
These persons had arrived in Dacca from Karachi by Pakistan International
Airlines (PIA) flight on different dates in the third week of July 1999
and had meetings with the ISI officials based in Dacca to arrange for
onward dispatch of a consignment of explosives to Assam. Subsequently,
they traveled to Sylhet and crossed over to India through illegal channels
somewhere near Karimganj.
SPREAD OF HARKAT-UL-MUJAHIDEEN IN ASSAM
During interrogation of the arrested persons, it came to light that
the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, a dreaded Pakistan-based terrorist outfit,
has recruited and dispatched a number of youths from Assam for training
in Pakistan. Based on the information provided by them, Assam Police
arrested a large number of persons who have returned after training
in Pakistan, including some of the top most activists of the Assam unit
of the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen. The chief organiser of HuM in Assam, Md.
Muslimuddin was also arrested. It has come to light that the Naib Amir
of HuM in India, Maulana Md. Fakruddin @ Akram Master also hails from
Goalpara district of Assam. He is at present based in Pakistan.
EFFORTS TO REPATRIATE FUNDS FROM PAKISTAN FOR DEFENDING
THE CASE OF ISI OPERATIVES
Md. Fasih Ulla Hussaini and Javed Wakhar, Pakistani nationals (top
activists of Pakistan based Harkat-ul-Mujahideen) who were arrested
in Guwahati in August 1999, are now lodged in Goalpara jail. Recently
Fasih Ulla moved the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Goalpara for permission
to write to the Pakistani High Commissioner in Delhi to obtain a sum
of Rs. 3 lakhs for meeting their legal expenses to defend their case.
The CJM passed an order dated November 16, 1999, agreeing to the prayer
and accordingly Md. Fasih Ulla wrote to Mr. Ashraf Jahangir Qazi, the
Pakistani High Commissioner stating that he along with his colleagues
have been arrested by Assam Police and asking him to obtain a sum of
Rs. 3 lakhs from his 'guardian' in Islamabad. The telephone number of
the 'guardian' provided in the application 414446 is the
personal telephone of Fazlur Rahman Khalil, the Chief Amir of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.
Copy of Application written by Fasih Ulla through CJM, Goalpara addressed
to Pakistan High Commissioner, New Delhi requesting for obtaining money
from Pak based Fazlur Rahman Khalil, Chief of HuM.
MILITANT OUTFITS ORGANISED ALONG RELIGIOUS LINES
During the last few years, a large number of Muslim militant outfits
have mushroomed in the State. The outfits which have come to notice
Muslim United Liberation Front of Assam (MULFA)
Muslim Liberation Tigers of Assam (MLTA)
Islamic Liberation Army of Assam (ILAA)
United Muslim Liberation Front of Assam (UMLFA)
United Reformation Protest of Assam (URPA)
People's United Liberation Front (PULF)
Muslim Volunteer Force (MVF)
Islamic Sevak Sangha
These outfits have been actively engaged in extortion of money, recruitment
of cadres and training in handling arms and explosives. During the last
two years, Assam Police have arrested 101 MLTA activists, 60 other cadres
belonging to other outfits noted above.
MISUSE OF MADRASSAS AND MOSQUES
Although some of the top arrested militants have been connected with
the activities of Mosques or Madrassas, nobody should jump to a conclusion
that all these sacred religious institutions have been maligned. While
it is necessary to take legal action against those criminals involved
in anti-national activities, care should be taken not to bring bad name
to the sacred religious institution or to the Muslim community in general.
Care has been taken to see that Muslim police officers alone are deputed
for such enquiry in religious places.
A number of audio cassettes of speeches by Maulana Masood Azar have
been found in circulation in various parts of the State. The contents
of these speeches have been found to be highly inflammatory and communally
