“I won’t worry even if I’m to be executed as I have dedicated myself to bringing about an Islamic revolution across the globe.” Across the globe, mind you, not just in Bangladesh. “Bangla radicals plan to carry more serial blasts after Ramadan,” from ANI, with thanks to Nicolei:
Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) and Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh (JMJB), the two radical outfits that have been blamed for the serial blasts in Bangladesh are planning to carry out more blasts across the country after the holy month of Ramadan.
Kawser Alam Sumon, a 27-year JMB leader who was caught in Netrakona town round midnight Wednesday, said, that he received calls from JMB chief Shaikh Abdur Rahman to get prepared for carrying on another round of bomb attacks after Ramadan.
“Two or three days ago, our chief Shaikh Abdur Rahman called me on my mobile phone and asked me get prepared for carrying out another round of bomb attacks at the end of Ramadan,” a police official quoted Sumon, as saying.
Officials said that Sumon had also confessed of having co-ordinated the August 17 blasts in Netrakona, Kishoreganj and Mymensingh districts on the directives of Abdur Rahman.
They said that the raid on his brother in law’s house, from where he was arrested, also led to the seizure of video cassettes containing footage of Afghan and Chechen wars and speeches of Osama bin Laden. Sumon’s mobile phone was also recovered during the raid.
Officials said that Sumon’s sister Beauty (22) was also held for suspected links to militancy. She has admitted to being a member of JMB, they said.
Sumon, who has now been place on a seven-day remand by a Netrakona Court, said that his younger brother Zakaria Alam Dipon was also a member of the JMB, reports The Daily Star.
“I won’t worry even if I’m to be executed as I have dedicated myself to bringing about an Islamic revolution across the globe,” an investigator quoted Sumon as saying.
