Mumbai’s former police commissioner Rakesh Maria has made a sensational disclosure about the Mumbai attack in his book. He has written in his book Let Me From It Now that if the Lashkar plan had been successful, the headlines of ‘Hindu terrorism’ would have appeared on all newspapers and TV channels.
He wrote in his book that if the Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, who was involved in the Mumbai attack of 26 November 2008, was killed on the spot, the world would probably have considered the incident to be Hindu terrorism. The Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba, which carried out the 26/11 attack, hatched a very dangerous conspiracy to make it look like a terrorist attack on behalf of the Hindus of India.
Reacting to the book, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that the Congress had tried to mislead the country in the name of Hindu terrorism. He said that the Congress had to bear the brunt of this in 2014 and 2019. The public completely defeated him. On Maria’s book, Piyush Goyal said that he should have said these things when he was the Commissioner of Police. Goyal asked why did Maria just say all these things?

Piyush Goyal said that the first thing is why Maria said all this thing right now. He should speak all these things when he was the police commissioner. In fact, if any information in the service rules is with the senior police officers then action should be taken against them. I think there was a very deep conspiracy by the Congress, by the UPA. Another example of lies and deception we saw when he tried to create a false Hindu terror at the behest of… Chidambaram sahib.
I condemn the Congress and all those who tried to mislead the country with false allegations of Hindu terror. His fault was in 2014 and in 2019 … the people of the country defeated him completely. I understand Terror has no religion. Terrorist is Terrorist and our government strongly condemns what Congress tried to implicate some people on false charges.
Know what is written in the book
Let me tell you that in this book, Maria has made a big disclosure about Ajmal Kasab, the only terrorist alive after the 26/11 Mumbai attack. In it, he wrote that Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI had tried to bring the 26/11 Mumbai attack to Hindu terrorism. Fake identity cards were sent along with 10 attackers to prove them to be Hindus.
According to Maria, the Mumbai police did not want to release the photo or more information of the terrorist Kasab. Police had tried its best to ensure that the terrorist’s details were not leaked to the media. The retired IPS officer also claims that the face of Pakistan was being exposed during the court trial, hence the gang of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was found to have killed Kasab.
