NEW DELHI: Following the arrest of two suspected terrorists, both associated with the Popular Front of India (PFI), the Bihar Police also recovered an eight-page document that talks of ‘establishing Islamic rule in India by 2047’.
The Bihar Police on Wednesday arrested Mohammad Jalaluddin, a retired police officer from Jharkhand and Athar Parvez – have been arrested for indulging in anti-India activities.
Parvez is a former member of the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and is currently with PFI and the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI). SIMI, a terror organisation, is banned in India.
The eight-page document: ‘India Vision 2047 – Towards rule of Islam in India’, was recovered from the premises of the accused from Patna’s Phulwarisharif area.
The document talked about after independence Muslims are systematically and increasingly getting marginalised in their homeland. It said that the rise of sectarian Hindutva forces has further bothered to consult Muslims even on the matters concerning Shariat.
The document also talked about how the community faces a leadership crisis.
It further reads that “2047 CE is not a watershed in history, but it signifies the end of a century of independent India and the beginning of a new one pregnant with changes, positive and negative, cataclysmic or otherwise”.
“We dream 2047 where the political power has returned to the Muslim community from whom it was unjustly taken away by the British Raj,” it said, adding that the roadmap towards this first starts with the socio-economic development of the Muslim community for which a separate roadmap was already provided in the name of Empower India Foundation.
It also said that socio-economic development and the resultant empowerment would lead also to political empowerment which would then act as a virtuous cycle towards better socio-economic development and further political power.
“We have given ourselves a target of 2047 CE to bring about an Islamic Government in this country,” the document read.
“If we look into the history of Islam, Muslims were always in minority and for victory, we do not need to have a majority. Popular Front of India (PFI) is confident that even if 10 per cent of the total Muslim population rally behind it, PFI would subjugate the coward majority community to their knees and bring back the glory of Islam in India,” it said.
The document also stated that to achieve the goal, the roadmap has been prepared to be kept in mind by all the PFI leaders and accordingly guide the PFI cadres, in particular, and the Muslim community, in general towards this goal.
The document talked about four stages for the 2047 document and stressed the need to unite Muslims under one flag of PFI and focus on expanding and recruiting new members.
The document also talked about giving training in attacking and defensive techniques, and the use of swords, rods, and other weapons.
In the second stage, the document stated that it need to strengthen and spread the narrative of grievances far and wide, endeavour for mass mobilization under the leadership of PFI and use “violence selectively” to demonstrate strength and terrorise the opponents while limiting exposure of our trained cadres to security forces.
It further said that those with talent are to be spotted and recruited to be given advanced training on weapons including “firearms and explosives”.
The document asserted the concepts such as ‘National Flag’, ‘Constitution’ and ‘Ambedkar’ to “shield the real intention of establishing an Islamic rule” and to reach out to SCs/STs/OBCs.
“We would reach out to executive and judiciary and also strive to infiltrate our members in these at all levels in order to gather information and get a favourable outcome in matters of our interest.
Further, liasoning is to be established with foreign Islamic countries for funding and other help,” the document said.
In the third stage, Party should form close alliances with SCs or STs or OBCs and win elections at all levels at least in a few seats.
“The Party should gain the trust of 50 per cent of Muslims and 10 per cent of SC/STs/OBCs in this stage. Political victories should be utilised to further expand the organisation and the Party,” the document said, adding that it needs to create a split between RSS and SC/STs/OBCs by projecting that RSS is an organisation interested only in the welfare of upper caste Hindus.
It also highlighted to discredit of existing “so-called” secular parties by questioning their secularism and projecting the need for Muslims and SC/STs/OBCs to have their own parties to project their interest.
The document then also talked about uniformed marches and intervening physically in the defence of the community wherever required and attacking anyone against its interest.
“Stockpiling of weapons and explosives should be done in this stage,” it said.
“In the final stage, Party should become the undisputed leader and representative of the entire Muslim community by sidelining all other Muslim organisations,” it said, adding that at this stage, this vote share would be sufficient for the party to gain political power at the national level.
Once in power, all important positions in the executive and judiciary as well as the Police and Army are to be filled with loyal cadres. The doors of all government departments including the Army and Police would be opened to be filled with loyal Muslims and SCs/STs/OBCs to correct the past injustice and imbalances in their recruitment, it said.
“Those against our interest are to be eliminated,” it said, adding that the cadres would also act as a safeguard against the influence of security forces by our opponents.
When we have enough trained cadres and stockpiling of arms, we would declare a new Constitution based on Islamic principles, the document said.
It also said that there would be systematic and widespread elimination of our opponents and return of Islamic glory.
Sharing its plan in its 2047 document, it further stated that the rising Hindutva forces, RSS and their puppet government at the centre are giving enough issues to foment grievances of our brothers and made them believe that the RSS-controlled union government is hell-bent to suppress Islam in the country.
“The deficit of trust between the government and the Muslim community has become so wide. The Muslim community should always be reminded about the atrocities perpetrated upon them during the demolition of Babri Masjid, communal riots and lynching of Muslims,” it said.
The document also asked the state units to make concerted efforts to make Muslims believe that the RSS-led government was planning to declare India a Hindu Rashtra and drive Muslims out of the country.
It further talked about the mass mobilisation for regaining the glory of Islam.
Through the mass mobilisation agenda, we aim to rally as many Muslims as possible behind PFI for which we have to reach them and educate them about the seriousness of the situation. “Mass mobilisation includes three components – Inclusiveness, Outreach and Engagement (mobilisation),” it said in its plan.
It also said that the well-trained trainers were being sent state to state to impart training to PFI members in weapon handling and explosives.
The document also pointed out the shortage of trainers and the number of potential trainees and stressed identifying resourceful candidates.
It also stressed finding a place for running the proper secluded training centres/locations for conducting advanced PE courses.
It asked the state units to acquire plots in Muslim-dominated localities or remote locations in order to set up proper training facilities and depots for stock-piling of arms and explosives.
“Locations of these centres should be under the knowhow of only selected persons. We have a long way to cover in order to train all PFI cadres and sympathisers in basic PE as well as build our own dedicated army of trained PE cadres before we can achieve our goal,” it said.
It also asked about the need for the collection of information against Hindu or Sangh Parivar leaders.
“It is imperative to collect and keep ready detailed information about the personal details of Hindu/RSS leaders and locations of their offices before the stage of the final showdown comes. The information wings at various levels should keenly follow up and update their database. Tracking their activities would also help us in responding to their atrocities. Keeping in view the importance of the information wing in the roadmap of our final goal, the working of the wing at all levels needs to be strengthened and sharpened,” the document read.
The document also talked about help from friendly Islamic countries.
“In the last few years, PFI has developed a friendly relationship with Turkey, a flag-bearer of Islam. Efforts are on to cultivate reliable friendship in some other Islamic countries,” it added.
