Collusive role of Bollywood Mafia in 26/11 Terror Attack on Mumbai

The riveting narrative of  the bombing of  the Maximum city, Mumbai, on November 26, 2008, by LeT’s  Jihadi goons with the help of Bollywood Mafia has remained buried in monumental indifference of our secularism-doped nation.

It has been ignored by Hindu leaders and intellectuals despite a bold attempt made by the efforts of two British investigative journalists, Adrian Levy and Cathy Scott, to highlight Bollywood Mafia’s role in their seminally researched book, “Siege.

The finger of suspicion pointed at Bollywood’s controversial film director, actor and producer Mahesh Bhatt and his son Rahul Bhatt. Apparently both of them did play a major supportive role in Mumbai 26/11 terror attack. Mahesh Bhatt’s son, Rahul, had been befriended by David Headley who was the prime executor designated by the Lashkar plotters.

Headley had  been provided three local contacts in Mumbai. He was told to get in touch with Basheer after reaching Mumbai. It was Basheer who first took him around the city and also introduced him to two more accomplices.

Mumbai Massacre of 26/11 will remain a defining chapter of the sordid story of our bedraggled civilisation. On the night of 26th November 2008, ten Kalashnikov-wielding jihadi Muslims attacked Mumbai. They simultaneously targeted five locations and shot dead 183 innocents, including 25 foreign nationals.

The major targets were the Jewish Cultural Center, Tata’s  prestigious Taj Palace hotel and city’s main railway station, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, where the largest number of gruesome killings took place.

David Headley and Tahawar Hussain Rana (a Canadian Pakistani) had arrived in Mumbai  five days before 26/11 attack. Earlier they had stayed for two days in Delhi in a budget hotel in Paharganj.

The Pakistani handler of David Headley was Sajid Mir. But during his questioning in USA, after arrest by the FBI, Headley did not disclose this important fact, perhaps deliberately. In fact, Headley was a double agent working for America’s CIA as well as Pakistan’s Lashkar-e-Tayyeba.

At the Jewish Cultural Center, Chabad House,  the terrorists indulged in worst barbarism. The trapped Israeli nationals were sadistically tortured and sexually violated before butchering them, in true Islamic style!

There was no mistaking the fact that  Lashkar gunmen had declared war on Bharatiyas.

The seamy treacherous role of  Bollywood Mafia in Mumbai 26/11 murder mayhem was exposed by the Mahesh Bhatt’s son, Rahul Bhatt during his frequent conversations with Headley.

One day during his exploratory tours of Mumbai’s night life joints, David Headley met Vilas Warek who was a fitness trainer at Moksh fitness centre. He introduced Headley to Rahul Bhatt, son of Mahesh Bhatt, the famous film actor, director and producer.

Interestingly Mahesh’s wife, a practicing Muslim, had raised Rahul Bhatt as a devout Muslim. Soon David Headley and Rahul Bhatt became inseparable operators. Rahul became interested in Headley’s knowledge about weapons and even jokingly called him Agent Headley.

After winning Rahul’s trust Headley tried to take him to AfPak border. Rahul did not agree and shook his head saying that by going to AfPak he might be killed like Daniel Pearl. Headley’s response was that he could even become Muhammad Atta, the notorious Islamic bomber of 9/11 attack on twin towers in USA.

The tone and tenor of conversations between Headley and Rahul Bhatt revealed that the latter was no stranger to the world of terror and knew a lot about Islamic terrorism and 9/11 terror attack on twin towers and Pentagon which had savaged America.

In several e-mails exchanged between the  approver-turned David Headley and his Lashkar handlers, one name appeared repeatedly. It was: Rahul. Also there were reference to Rahul’s city and  Headley’s meetings with Rahul.

After Headley’s arrest and opting to become approver, the role of Mahesh Bhatt and his son Rahul should have come under the scanner of Maharashtra police and intelligence agencies because during his deposition in a Chicago court, Headley claimed that he had told Rahul Bhatt to avoid going  to South Mumbai on 26/11, the day Mumbai was attacked. He also stated that he was planning to make a film featuring Rahul Bhatt because he really liked the youngman.

Mahesh Bhatt’s role in the Mumbai 26/11 terror attack was further confirmed by the warning he gave to his son Rahul that if it became known that he was involved in the 26/11 terror attack, he will disown Rahul. (Source: Hindustan Times, Mumbai, November 10, 2018).

On being questioned, Mahesh Bhatt denied any role in the Mumbai terror attack. On the contrary he claimed that he had helped the Mumbai police in probing the crime. But his claim was not corroborated by the investigators.
