  • Tricking in the name of studies in private madrasas is worrying- Biswa Sarma
  • Bangladeshi citizens conducted training camps during the pandemic – Sarma

Assam News : Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday said the state is turning into a hotbed of “jihadi activities” and five “modules” of Bangladesh-based terror outfit Ansarul Islam have been busted here in the past few months. Sarma told a press conference that six Bangladeshi nationals belonging to Ansarul Islam came to Assam to mislead the youth and one of them was arrested in March this year during the busting of the first module in Barpeta.

Worrying to mislead in the name of studies in private madrasas

He said that it is worrying the imams from outside Assam to trick Muslim youth in the name of studying in private madrassas. “Jihadi activity is very different from terrorist or extremist activities. It begins with several years of deceit, followed by active participation in the promotion of Islamic fundamentalism, and finally moves to subversive activities.’

Operation of many training camps during the pandemic

Bangladeshi nationals who ‘illegally entered’ the state in 2016-17 conducted several training camps during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Of these, only one Bangladeshi has been arrested so far, and I appeal to the people to inform the local police if anyone from outside the state becomes a teacher or imam in a madrasa,” he said.

Strings related to Bangladeshi terrorist organization

Let us tell you that in the investigation of Assam Police and central agencies, the links of 11 people arrested in the state last week were confirmed to be linked to Bangladeshi terrorist organization Ansarul Bangla Team. State’s Special Director General of Police (Law and Order) GP Singh, after holding a meeting with the investigating teams in Morigaon, had said that the arrested people have been questioned by the Assam Police and central agencies. He said that the police was keeping a watch on private madrasas across Assam to trace any suspicious activity and action would be taken if any information is received in this regard.

“I have reviewed the investigation and so far its progress is satisfactory, but there is still a long way to go,” he said. Clear evidence has been found about financial links between the two arrested in Morigaon and the jihadi organization. It also appears that there is a link between these people and those recently arrested in Tripura and Bhopal. A total of 11 people have been arrested so far from Morigaon, Goalpara, Guwahati and Barpeta for their alleged links with the terror outfit, the senior official said.
