Many interesting issues are raised with this new happening and that is why I have posted in separately so that the questions that are going abegging are not lost in the maze of other extraneous issues that are there on other threads. Earlier the terror organisations and its foot-soldiers were basically from the lumpen elements of the society and so it was understandable that such elements could be indoctrinated since beyond religion, they had not much of a societal life. But now it appears that the educated and upward mobile people, who are savoring the essential goodness of life, are also joining in the fray. Is it: (a) That because they are educated they perceive more acutely and incisively that the society is not giving its due to the Muslim? community. (b) That because they are educated they feel that Islam per se is globally under attack and hence they should chip in? Targeting India is purely because of location and not out of animus? (c) That they are being recruited by the ISI so as to make their operations sophisticated as also to throw the Indian intelligence off the scent? Police Approach to Investigation and Arrest. The usual way is to keep the suspects under surveillance, let the organisation grow. As it grow, the surveillance is stepped up so that the net to be case increases whereby more elements can be put out of circulation when the net is pulled in. In this case, the terror organisation has not been allowed to grow and instead, even before they could get into the act, they have been rounded up. Is it because: (a) The State Govt is wary that the communal situation in the State, which is already nothing to write home about, given the slur of moral policing, did not want a incendiary situation to develop, having learnt from the aftermath of Gujarat, and so preferred to nip it in the bud? (b) The State Govt does not wish to build a reputation that their State is the next hub of terrorism after Hyderabad, since this is a BJP ruled State and hence sensitive to appear appeasing the Muslims. (c) They have good reasons to believe that the organisation has made inroads already and so the time was to act, but have not released all the details? However, if as Raman states - The forensic evidence available so far is not adequate to reconstruct the conspiracy in a manner that will carry conviction to the courts and the Muslim community, then these premature arrests make no sense and instead making the whole issue appear perverse.
