New Delhi: There has been a long-standing narrative attached to the 2007 Samjhauta Express bombing where 68 civilians were killed. Not only did it cause the disintegration of improving India-Pakistan relations, it established an indisputable historical narrative — the rise of Hindu terror.
NewsX tried to unfurl the single accepted narrative of the story and discovered that 'Hindu terror' could've been a plot invented by the then government to link this incident to a political climate suitable to that time.
In a noting from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on 21st June, 2010, it mentioned that the investigation into the Samjhauta blast by the Haryana police had reached a dead-end. "We may consider the transfer of the investigation to NIA as the Haryana police seem to have reached a dead-end. The successful unravelling of this case may be vital in the national interest," the noting said, which was signed later by the then Home Minister Shivraj Patil.
However, negating the MHA’s facts on the noting, the Haryana police did have evidences which suggested at Pakistan's hand in the blast. An involvement of SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) was suspected and that strong anti-national elements had partaken in the massacre.
The initial investigation into the matter did not point towards the involvement of Hindu terror in the incident. It is highly probable that the UPA regime had scripted a Hindu terror theory pertaining to the fact that the plot was mentioned in a chamber of discussion where the narrative was invented.
Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju, while speaking to NewsX, confirmed that the theory of Hindu terror had been manufactured by the Congress and that any further revelations into the case depended entirely upon the investigation.
BJP MP Satyapal Singh said that it was the biggest folly of the Congress government to link the incident with Hindu terror and condemned the party for creating a religious strife through politics. sdsds
