Mumbai Serial Bomb Blast 20th Anniversary Sees Masterminds Free

In Mumbai, India, March 12 is the 20th anniversary of the Mumbai serial bomb blasts locally known as Black Friday. But some of the perpetrators of the Mumbai terrorist attacks were freed, and the masterminds behind the conspiracy, Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, have yet to be caught.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, such terrorist attacks on Mumbai have a history of the perpetrators being caught but the masterminds remaining free. Mohammad Ajmal Kasab was executed several months ago by hanging in India for taking part in the Mumbai terrorist attacks in 2008. But Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the founder of the Islamic militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba behind the attack on Mumbai, frequently mocks a $10 million American bounty for information leading to his capture.

The 1993 Mumbai bombing terrorist attacks saw over 100 people convicted and punished. The entire conspiracy was hatched by Pakistan and executed by a group of Indian criminals. Brand new vehicles with unidentified number plates loaded with RDX explosives were used to wreak havoc in Mumbai. Dawood Ibrahim provided the explosives, bombs, arms, and ammunition for the Mumbai blasts. The attacks were coordinated by Dawood Ibrahim.

India has provided evidence that both Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon are responsible for the 1993 Mumbai attacks. But the Pakistani government refuses to hand over the fugitives who are currently living in Pakistan.

While some like Mohammed Shoib Ghansar was convicted and set to the gallows for his part in the Mumbai bombing attacks, Bashir Usman Ghani actually came out on parole to marry his fiancee of two decades. Bashir had gone with Tiger Memon to bomb a fishermen’s colony in Mahim but developed cold feet and did not throw grenades like others and hence escaped the death penalty.

According to Farhan Shah, the TADA court ordered that Bashir return to jail for his part in the Mumbai bombings, “She perhaps realized there was little chance of his appeal being decided by the Supreme Court in the near future and that Shoib may never come out of jail.”

Osama bin laden was also successfully hiding in Pakistan for years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Do you think the 1993 Mumbai serial blast attacks give India justification to authorize such a snatch-and-grab operation for Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon?
