Kerala has always been a safe haven for Islamic extremists, throughout the nation, thanks to the Muslim-dominated Malappuram district and the coastline which is predominantly under Islamic control. Many of the jehadi terrorists, including Kashmiri extremists, have one time or other, stayed in Kerala, without any hindrance.
With Islamic groups like NDF, PDP, SIMI, Islamic Students? Movement (ISM), having links with several jehadi groups all over India and a pro-Muslim government in the CPM-LDF, the extremists never had it better. But, be it CPM-dominated LDF or Muslim League-dominated UDF, the field is open for jehadi operations. All the Al-Umma cadres of Coimbatore, who were involved in the attempt on L.K. Advani, were arrested from Malappuram.
Now in a startling disclosure, threatening the security of the state, Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has informed the Kerala Assembly that central intelligence agencies have warned the state of Islamic, Naxal and LTTE attacks and asked it to strengthen security.
Based on Home Minister'sstatement and media reports, there is proof of jehadi-Naxal-LTTE axis. With a clear forest route available from Andhra Pradesh to Kerala, there is proof of ?PWG? movement in Kerala. A Tamil Nadu-based Naxal Sunderamoorthy, who was arrested recently disclosed his stay at Nedumkandam and Pullemedu in Idukki. An LTTE cadre Sadarathinam of Vavuniya, Sri Lanka, was also arrested in Nedumkandam recently. With a large Tamil population, it is easy for Tamil extremist groups to merge with the populace. There are also media reports that LTTE and Naxal/Maoists are using the huge estates, acquired by NDF, for training purposes.
ISI and Bangladesh intelligence are active in several pockets of Kerala. Lakhs of Bengalis who are involved in construction activities in Kerala are actually Bangladeshis and ISI is very active among them. Thousands of Pakistanis who are staying in Malappuram without any documents are allowed to roam free, due to LDF/UDF tie-up with Muslim groups.
LTTE is using the jehadi groups for logistic purposes, since they control the coast. Fuel, medicines and food supplies go to LTTE from Kerala/Tamil Nadu coast. The Maoists, Naxals and LTTE give explosives to jehadis in return. There are also reports that weapons to LTTE come in containers and they are handed over to them by jehadi groups.
Kerala has its cup of problems full, and if LTTE and Naxals join the jehadi groups, who will save ?God'sown country??
