later sent back to his hometown.He now has to recruit 3 and hence establish a chain.Only few trained terrorists are enough
in the age of explosives , numbers don’t matter. Confessions have been obtained (about the above).

by the ISI.

of Maulana Azhar‘s speech runs as follows
Babri Masjid we are ashamed
will not rest till you are restored to your former glory
are martyrs – Allahs guests – married to the Hoors of Jannah!
death which life envies,a million times better than life.
infidels are trying to efface Islam from the face of the earth
youth on the true road to Islam must be willing to wield AK-47, Pistols, Rocket Launchers.We have to liberate Kashmir from
Indian rule.Soldiers of Islam – Holy warriors from 12 countries. We fight for religion, not politics. We want Islam
to rule the world. We want the destruction of USA & India.
Allah has ordered this jihad. We have no option but to follow his order. The Fidayeen (suicide) attacks on Indian soil
was intended to warn India to withdraw its forces from J&K & stop the farce of talks. We reject Democracy. The notion
of soverignity of people is Anti-islamic. Only the Allah is sovereign.
