  • tags: no_tag

    • Nasir, the alleged mastermind of the Bangalore bomb blasts who was handed over to the Bangalore police on Friday, has revealed to investigators that he had links with Abdul Nasir Madani, leader of the Peoples’s Democratic Party (PDP), the police said in Bangalore.
    • Madani was the first accused in the 12 serial bomb blasts that killed 33 people and injured 153 others in Coimbatore on February 14, 1998. But he was released after the police failed to prove his involvement.
    • The police said that Nasir reportedly revealed to investigators that he was responsible for converting youth in the banned SIMI through Tareequath classes (a meeting of like minded) to the Jihadi ideology. The police said that Nasir and his associates regularly visited Hyderabad to attend similar assemblies.


      The classes took place every Sunday and Wednesday and almost all the accused in the Bangalore serial blast attended these classes in Kerala and Hyderabad, the police said. The classes were mainly against the RSS and alleged atrocities on Muslims in India, Afghanistan, Lebanon and Palestine.
