2 Islamists held for ABVP leader’s murder

· Date:July 19, 2012

The Kerala Police on Thursday arrested Islamist student activists Nasim (21) of Konni and Shefique (22) of Pandalam, both in Pathanamthitta district, for the murder of ABVP leader Vishal (19) the other day at Christian College at Chengannur in Alappuzha district.

The First Class Judicial Magistrate Court, Chengannur remanded Nasim and Shefique, activists of the Campus Front of India, the students’ wing of Islamist organization Popular Front of India, in judicial custody for 14 days and sent to the sub-jail in Mavelikkara, Alappuzha. Nasim is a final-year BA (economics) student of Christian College.

Vishal, ABVP’s Nagar Samiti chief of Chengannur, was hacked by a gang of Campus Front activists on Monday in front of the college in Chengannur during a programme to welcome new degree course students to the institution. He succumbed to the hack injuries at the Government Medical College Hospital, Kottayam early Tuesday morning.

Vishal’s funeral was held at his residence in Mulakkuzha, Chengannur on Wednesday. The ABVP observed a State-wide education bandh on Thursday to protest against the inaction on the part of the Government to effectively end the alleged operations of Muslim fundamentalists in the college campuses in Kerala.

The organization said that the Government should ban the Campus Front, which was a new form of banned Islamist organization SIMI. Campus Front’s parent body PFI was responsible for the Taliban-model chopping-off of the right hand of a college professor in July, 2010 for preparing a question paper which allegedly blasphemed Prophet Muhammad.

    This is not the act of few criminals.

    This must have executed by the professional criminals, under direction of top political bosses, who are the “Jihadi” elements of this country.

    Each and every “Jihadi” element of this country has Pakistani support. Our police men can eradicate them from the root, if they are allowed for. But our police forces can not act impartially without the interference of their political bosses.

    All the islamist monsters must be arrested
    What about arresting the rest of the jihadi murderers?Weren’t there about 20 of them with deadly weapons?The monsters must be identified and arrested immediately.Kerala Police’s hands are obviously tied by the HM.Let the case be handed over to the NIA without wasting time.All Hindu organizations must be insistent on this demand.

    Preplanned attack
    I see so many comments in the net from islamists justifying the attack on ABVP students. Though many of them would pretend to distance from NDF and PFI, they never hide their happiness in these kinds of incidents. Friday’s news papers came out with facts found out by police saying that the main accused Nasim is a trainer at a martial arts school and outsiders came with weapons to attack ABVP students anticipating a clash. And definitely the support of the well prepared gangsters would have motivated them to launch a surprise attack on students. We need to learn lessons from these types of incidents.
