As India celebrates the Amrit Kaal of independence, the banned extremist Islamic organization People’s Front of India (PFI) has called on its followers to make India an Islamic state by 2047.
According to the eight-page document, “Vision 2047, India towards the rule of an Islamic State”, seized by the Phulwari Sharif police station in Ahmad Manjil, on the outskirts of Patna, last night at a training allegedly managed by PFI, the year 2047 signifies the end of the century of “independent India” and the beginning of a new one full of changes, positive and negative, cataclysmic or not.
“We dream of 2047 when political power returns to the Muslim community from whom it has been unjustly taken away by the British,” the document states.
The sensational document was found along with 26 PFI flags and literature by police during searches in predominantly Muslim areas, as intelligence services sent information targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his July 12 visit to Bihar Assembly.
Police have received reports that in the past fortnight suspected terrorists have been staying in the area and receiving martial arts training from trainers sent from Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
While an FIR has been filed on the matter, Patna police on Thursday arrested three suspected militants identified as Mohammad Jamaluddin, a retired Jharkhand police sub-inspector, Ajzar Parwej and Arman Malik. The FIR further names 25 other people, many from outside Bihar, for planning to foment communal tensions during the Prime Minister’s visit.
According to the seized documents, PFI’s vision document says that even if 10% of the total Muslim population joins their organization (PFI), “we will bring the majority community LOOSE to their knees and bring back the glory of Islam to India.” .”
The pamphlet suggests steps towards Islamic domination and asks Muslims to organize themselves regardless of their sects and affiliations.
“All frontline organizations should expand and recruit new members, facilitate entry of members into the civil and judicial services, and create differences within the RSS by isolating OBCs, EBCs, SCs, and STs and projecting an organization Superior Community,” the document reads.
PFI leaders had gathered in Phulwari Sharif on July 6-7, five days before Modi’s arrival in the state. According to the police, PFI had received money from neighboring Islamic countries and three of their accounts were seized. The money had come from Turkey, Pakistan and Bangladesh, police said.
Athwar Parwej, one of the arrested defendants, was an activist with the now-banned Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and had facilitated legal aid to imprisoned members of the organization. His brother was also blamed in the “serial Gandhi Maidan explosions” that took place in October 2013, when then-prime minister candidate Narendra Modi was addressing an election rally.
Police said those who had come from Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal were training local Muslim youths in swordsmanship and martial arts and brainwashing them. They were found in local hotels with changed names.
