In a major breakthrough, India’s NIA has arrested an individual named Chauhan, a member of the Hindu extremist group, who masterminded the Samjhauta Express bombing in 2007 that killed more than 70 innocent Muslims, mostly Pakistanis. His group has been found involved in hundreds of acts of violence and terrorism across India. This has certainly exposed the Hindu extremist groups involvement in terror activities inside India. Chauhan was held from Indore, and already a Hindu Swami Assemanand, a member of the RSS, has made confessions of involvement in the then Indian army’s serving Colonel Prohit-led act of disastrous blast. Primarily the Indian police and government officials hurled their traditional accusation on Pakistan and LeT but later a retired Indian police official in his bestselling book also unmasked a number of Hindus, including a serving Colonel and Major of the Indian army who have been providing IEDs and bomb-making components to Hindu assailants. This is Hindutva terrorism and it is as deadly and dangerous as any other form of terrorism.
