Sambit Sonar | HENB | New Delhi | May 17, 2021:: On Monday Delhi Police uncovered an assassination plot against Dasna Devi Temple head priest Yati Narsighanand Saraswati who was under killing threat of various Muslim outfits for his sharp comment on Islamic Prophet Muhammad.
The accused, identified as Jan Mohammed Dar alias Jehangir, who hailed from Pulwama of Kashmir, was allegedly paid with Rs 41,000 to bump off the head priest of the Dasna Devi Temple. He was picked up from Hotel Shiva in Paharganj about a week ago ago, but the arrest was kept under wraps.
The Delhi Police recovered a saffron kurta, a white pyjama, a kalava (holy thread), a string of beads (Rudrakhsha mala) , sandalwood paste and a box of Kumkum (vermillion) along with a .30 bore pistol and two magazines containing 15 live rounds.
A carpenter by profession, Jan Mohammed Dar had reportedly come in contact with Jaish-e-Mohammed operative Abid in December 2020. Abid, who operated from Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, motivated Dar to work for the terror outfit and maintained contact with him via Whatsapp, the police said. On April 2, 2021, Abid met Dar in Anantnag and reportedly tasked him with killing Swami Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati. He also showed him the priest’s videos that had gone viral for their controversial content, the police said.
On April 23, Dar left for Delhi, where he met Abid’s contact Umar.
“They continuously chatted with each other on Whatsapp. In February, Dar came to Delhi with his sister and her father-in-law for the treatment of his nephew, who had heart disease. Once he returned to Kashmir, Abid entrusted him with the task of assassinating Dasna Devi Temple head priest Yati Narsighanand Saraswati,” a police officer privy to the details of the interrogation said.
The police officer also said that Dar received training from Abid, who also gave him Rs 6,500 in cash. Abid also made an online transfer of Rs 35,000 to Dar and asked him to procure a weapon from his friend in Delhi.
“He was asked to dress up like a Hindu monk to gain an entry to the temple. Police are now on the lookout for Abid’s friend, who provided Dar with a weapon,” the officer said. An FIR under Section 120B of IPC (criminal conspiracy) and under Arms Act was registered following some inputs and an investigation was initiated.
Dar was arrested previously by J&K Police for stone-pelting during protests in the aftermath of Burhan Wani’s death in 2016.
Notably, this is not the first time that Islamic terrorists have tried to operate under the guise of observant Hindus to gain access to their target without drawing suspicions and executing their nefarious plans. In October 2019, Hindu Samaj Party leader Kamlesh Tiwari (former Hindu Mahasabha president of Uttar Pradesh) was assassinated by two Islamic terrorists, Farid-ud-din Shaikh and Ashfaq Shaikh, in his office-cum-residence at Lucknow. The assailants came dressed in saffron kurtas to give him a sweets box with an address of a sweet shop in Surat city in Gujarat.
The assassination attempt against Dasna Devi Temple head priest Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati came into force a month after he made critical remarks against Islam and the debauchery in the character of Prophet Muhammad.
Islamic outfits active in India, whether home grown or foreign roots, have their plans to kill Hindu leaders, priests and monks to spread a unrest in India to create a communal situation for fulfilling Ghazwa-e-Hind in the subcontinent.
