    LeT Threatens to Strike At Vaishno Devi


    An email threatening to target the cave shrine of Vaishno Devi was purportedly sent by the banned terror outfit Lashker-e-Taiba to a hotelier in Katra to avenge the execution of 26/11 terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab, police said today.

    The email was received by A H Bhat, a hotelier of Devi Grand hotel, on November 24 threatening to target the shrine to avenge the hanging of Kasab, a senior police officer said tonight.

    "Investigation is going on...We cannot rule out either of the two angles to it, one hoax, the other threat from the terror outfit," the officer said.

    "We cannot deliberate on the issue further since preliminary investigation into the matter is going on," he added.

    Police have seized the computer and other equipments on which the email had been sent.

    Efforts are on to decode the email, police said.

    DIG, Udhampur-Reasi, Jagjeet Kumar and other senior officials of central agencies visited Katra and reviewed the security arrangements there.

    Meanwhile, an alert has been sounded in the region with additional security being being put in place.

    Police have intensified frisking people, checking of vehicles and keeping an eye on suspected movements.

    The email could be a prank by some anti-national elements but no chances can be taken, the senior police official said.

    They will only be playing with fire. Consequences will be unpredictable.

    I saw. But there are always some loopholes, it being on mountain having multiple routes.

    Those areas are well patrolled and monitored, from what I remember. @Ray sir, can shed some light.

    I wonder why India doesn't retaliate against LeT bases just like Israel bombs the crap out of the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists. If the LeT does attack, send a massive IAF task force to precision bomb the shit out of the LeT/JuD's massive base at Muridke and other places. Don't treat a terrorist attack as a crime, but as an act of war by a belligerent force.

    At the very least, establish such an official doctrine so the PA and ISI become very cautious about executing any 26/11 type incidents in the future.

    Congress is too pussy though under these new "socialist" Gandhis. Both Indira and Rajiv had a much better grasp on strategic issues.

    Attack Vaishno Devi with what ? Our forces have already butchered thousands of these rats. There are barely few dozens remaining now in JK :laugh:

    I think its just the desperation coming out when militants can see how they are being fundamentally rooted out by Indian forces.

    Right but now instead of regular ground zero militancy in Kashmiri households, these guys would morph into occasional high-profile target hitting squads.
    They would want to repeat Akshardhams, as it doesn't take a full functioning state wide militancy to pull of such missions once in a while.
    26/11 Has proved it to them more than convincingly.
    Our forces must reassess and adjust their strategy accordingly. We cannot be caught behind the curve again.

    I dunno. Vaishno Devi mandir has been targeted before too. Some guys hurled bombs at the langar hall, iirc.

    Unless India makes a clear cut policy of holding Pak to account by declaring a policy of a bullet here and a rain of missiles there something I have been advocating for years now, these rats will continue to hold threats to us.

    I mean this whole thing about avenging Kasabs death is a joke. Kasab got what he deserved after killing so many innocents. It's India which has to avenge the death of its citizens by eliminating the LeT leadership.

    We have an open threat now from the LeT. India has to act if there is any incident in India. No investigation, no dossier. Attack their headquarters, camps. If Pakistan wants to escalate, so be it.

    Its a clash of civilizations for them, they have all the reasoning to connect hanging of that 'Kasab' with their attack on your border posts and plot to attack your places of worship.

    Bollocks. Attack on temples, ban on Amarnath yatra and so many other things have hardly changed any mindset. I see no reason why this will.

    May be we have learned to live in negationism and feel more secure in it... We can't be like "Jihadis". And its 100000000% correct

    I don't think its a prudent approach to go a bullet for a bomb approach. Pakistanis live for this.

    We have to go about this an innovative way. We need to put economic pressure on Pakistan, and at the same time stoke the fires of division there as a response.
    One thing I proposed was to put a Anti-terrorism tax on those MNC's also operating in Pakistan, to force them to leave Pakistan.
    Another thing we can do, is to put pressure on neighbours dealing with Pakistan, to stop doing so.
    And then we should obviously support the Baloch, the Sindhis, the Seraikis, the Barelvis, the Shiites, the Ahmadis, the Xtians etc. to put pressure on Pak.
