After 2012, the execution of the terrorist, 26/11 Mumbai terror attack once again hit to limelight with the biography of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria which now turned into a controversy. The memoir named ‘Let Me Say It Now’ revealed a few ground shattering facts about the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks that took place in 2008. Maria reveals how he unravelled the ISI and Lashkar-e-Toiba’s plot to trigger communal disruption in India.
Apart from the wrecked havoc in the city, the 10 Pakistani terrorists were also set to create a rift between the Hindu and Muslim communities. Maria in his book stated that they have found an ID on Kasab which had his name as “Samir Chaudhary”, a resident from Bangalore. Not only this, all 9 other terrorists were made to seem like they were disgruntled Hindus who were against India because of ‘atrocities’ against Muslims. They were also seen with saffron or red thread to be tied around their wrist which is believed to have been a Kalawa
According to Maria, the whole plan was to make the blasts and firing as the Hindu terror attack. However, with the police taking Kasab into custody live, the hatched plan burst out. He also disclosed that Dawood Ibrahim’s gang was given the responsibility to kill Ajmal Kasab. He then paid homage to martyred Mumbai constable Tukaram Omble whose heroic feat of capturing Kasab alive was key to foiling the plan.
