In Hindi, this terror mail is different

A terror email made its appearance once again on Thursday morning. But just like the terror attack on Mumbai, the email too was a complete break from earlier mails sent to coincide with the serial bomb blasts in Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Delhi.

Unlike the venom-spewing emails that were sent earlier, the latest email, sent to some media houses purportedly by an unknown outfit Deccan Mujahideen, has a very mild tone and tenor. Interestingly, it's written in Hindi. The earlier mails were all in English with a fair sprinkling of Arabic verses from the Quran. The email also did not invoke the 2002 Gujarat riots to justify the attacks. Instead it only said that the Mumbai attack was to avenge the injustices perpetrated on the Muslim community since Independence. This attack is in reaction to what the Hindus have been doing since 1947. Such reactions would keep on happening till we take revenge for each and every injustice perpetrated on us," the email said.

Meanwhile, DGP S S P Yadav denied having any information regarding Deccan Mujahideen, adding that terrorists were using all kinds of names to confuse the security agencies.

"Deccan is a vast area, the group can be from anywhere. I think they can also be from Pakistan because there's a Hyderabad there too," the DGP said. But he was unable to explain why any group from Pakistan's Hyderabad would choose to pre-fix Deccan in its name.

Yadav was also at sea when asked if there are any intelligence reports on terrorist activity in the city, especially after LeT militant Shaikh Abdul Jabbar was caught from the city by the Kerala Police.
