Madrasa owner held for planning terror attacks: NIA

New Delhi (PTI): A self-proclaimed cleric has been arrested by NIA officials for allegedly planning terror attacks in the country.

Abdus Sami Qasmi, a resident of Seelampur here, was arrested from Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi district. He has been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into the conspiracy to form a terror organisation and to launch terror attacks in the country, NIA officials said.


Adbus Sami has been delivering provocative and inflammatory speeches in the support of ‘Caliphate’, they said.

He has launched a few websites wherein his speeches have been uploaded. Abdus Sami has been allegedly instigating and motivating youth for anti-national activities and has visited various parts of the country in order to deliver his ‘Takreer and Bayaan’ (speech and statement), the NIA officials said.

He runs a trust and madrassas and some of his financial transactions in this connection have allegedly been found to be of suspicious nature and the same are under investigation, they said.

Abdus Sami was arrested yesterday by the NIA with the active support of Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad yesterday. A Non-Bailable Warrant against him had earlier been issued by the Special NIA court here.


  1. How can a self proclaimed claimed cleric runs a trust, madrassa (school) and have questionable financial transactions ?????

    1. How can anyone proclaim himself a cleric, unlike any organised body isn’t there a structure, a hierarchy, a central authority.

    2. If he is running a madrassa then parents are sending in their school children to him, why would so many parents send their children to the madrassa when Adbus Sami has known to be delivering provocative and inflammatory speeches in the support of ‘Caliphate’? We all know that Islam is a religion of peace, don’t these people know this little, that we all know?

    3. Financial Transactions ??? Why would some one give a person who preaches hate money?

    Perhaps we would have to wait for the “actual” report from the “learned” Sheikh, but these are some of my questions….if I may.

    Peace, Shanthi, Salam, Shalom?

  2. .. just an excerpt from Putin’s speech at the Duma, that fits very well here.

    “In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture.”

    • Mr. Deepak Shetty,

      The erstwhile U.S.S.R. and present leaders have always been despots and one of their prominent Communist Party leaders, Josef Stalin, is considered amongst most brutal men in history, responsible for the death of scores of millions. The same is the case with the Chinese Communist leader, Mao Tse Tung, a man responsible for death of millions of people, mostly during the Cultural Revolution, with his foolish and impractical ideas. Mao kept the masses in utter poverity and led an opulent and luxurious life and had a lot of fun, without any media glare, as even today the media in China is completely muzzled and it does not cover news and events without government control. Tourists are taken on conducted tours to the selected places in Chinese cities and rural areas (that serve as show pieces) and unlike New York, the tourist cannot have the freedom to go to Times Square and, after having seen that, say, “Well, having seen Times Square, I want to see how life goes on in the seedy places in Harlem?”

      In countries ruled by totalitarian regimes, the leader has his final say and no one can oppose it, unless he is ready for the worst. During World War II, U.S.S.R. had captured many countries with force, namely Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and others, some of which have become independent from 1991 onwards. In spite of what Putin says, he can hold Russia only with total control (and iron grip) and if countries like Russia and China have democracies like America, Europe and elsewhere, they will break up into many parts, because these places unlike Japan, Korea, Taiwan, etc. (which are one racial stock), are very diverse and people are clamouring for freedom, free press, free judiciary, freedom to express and worship, etc. Due to the one racial stock theory, both West Germany (capitalist) and East Germany (communist) unified in 1991.

      I agree with you that there should be uniform laws in India for all religions, without hurting the people’s sentiments. A man should be allowed to have one wife (and not more) at any given time, all males and females should have the freedom to enter any temples of worship of any faith and all should stand in the queue to worship the Almighty – whether he is a celebrity or the poorest of the poor. In short, to have an audience with the Almighty, no VIP status should be permitted. However, powerful or rich a man is, when he is dead he is buried by Christians cladded in a pair of clothes, others bury the dead body tied in a shroud, people of other faiths do cremation and others have rituals and ways. All temples of worship should have their revenues and expenses audited, just to ensure that some priest or priests or administrative staff are not involved in irregularities or jugglery by enriching themselves by pilfering money donated to God and, naturally, meant to be spent on charitable and good causes. These institutionss should be made to issue receipts for cash, cheques or donations in kind to ensure that donors are not giving black money, but legitimately earned monies. I have heard there re multi-millionaire priests.

      All schools run by religious bodies should be monitored by the authorities to ensure that students are given formal education and not taught some trash that will regiment their minds and transform them into terrorists for perceived religious causes.

      Putin is a dictator and, if I recall correctly, he led a senior position in the K.G.B. and was finally posted in Berlin, erstwhile East German capital. probably spying on N.A.T.O. and European countries.

      Mr. Shetty, your views cannot be imposed on India without disastrous ramifications, because it is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Some armchair critics, who do not know anything about India, nor have taken the pains to study it, will say if Japan has Japanese, Germany has German, why Hindi is not the national and business language in the country? Thy do not realize that Japan and Germany are one racial stock. This simile, is not applied in Switzerland (four national languages), Singapore (three national languages, one of which is Tamil), though they are small in areas and haves lesser populations. In India, everybody does not know Hindi and secondly how many books are available in Hindi for engineering, medicine and plethora of other subjects?

  3. WOW!! Shocking!!!! Madrassa involved in terror planning??? Noooooooo!!!!! I sincerely request all the ‘brave’ journalists, ‘brave’ social activists and geniuses from Beef Club to immediately launch a serious campaign to fight for the rights of this innocent victim of ‘sangha parivaaara’ conspiracy!! Also, start returning everything from your aadhaara card to degree certificate to protest against this!!!

    • WOW!! Shocking!!!! Madrassa involved in terror planning??? Noooooooo!!!!! -Atheist Mr.Original Pai

      Sir,Your statements are the truth exactly Sangh Parivar wanted to create in the minds of majority by picking innocent people.If it is the case of RSS swayamsevak,the RSS would have quickly disowned him and even provided legal cover(Meenakshi Lekhi legal advisor to saffron terror)

      To remind you regardless of legal course of action one is suspect until the court award him sentence. Be it a Akshardham attack or picking educated Jr.DRDO Engg. or false encounters mass media is always played biased.They acted like Supreme court already passed verdict with falsification of actual facts.

      My life has been totally ruined, Mufti Qayyum narrates horror in book

      The real story behind the fake Hubli Terror Conspiracy

      This witch hunt is stated since 1990 by then Congress government after diplomatic ties with Israel legacy is continued by BJP on the behest of RSS. Sadly in many cases suspects are acquitted but no one or who is the actual conspirator in the said case.All the cases suspects are tortured and forced to sign on blank paper or used threat to immediate family members.Those acquitted might have already passed the crucial years of life to establish.

      Sadly,The Indian justice system became corrupt.It has set an example by working round the clock while delivering death penalty for Muslim only convict.Will the same court work 24hrs to clear the 500 odd death penalties to send them gallows?Instead of being hauled up before the law for instigating Muzaffarnagar pogrom, BJP lawmakers have been feted for their noble deeds .


      In other hand PM Modi’s Home Ministry is asking public prosecutor to ‘GO SLOW’ on saffron terror.Covering Up Saffron Terror closure of Modasa bomb blast case is just the beginning.We will see all the saffron terror accused will have ‘aache din’.

      To Mr.Jay,

      The Madrasa are falls under the jurisdiction of wakf board appointed by the respective state government.All the financial transaction are audited and send to the government. The qualification in Islamic teachings is attained qualify one to reach highest position.The one is also first in line who will be responsible to answer Almighty at the day of judgement.Islam is always remained religion of peace.Sadly it became victimised by insiders and outsiders.

      I would like to invite you could visit few hours to one of nearest Madrasa as a part of fact finding team. You have full liberty to ask the questions and raise your doubts in your visit. To remove misconception you need to believe in seeing.

      Jai Hind

  4. Who is this ‘maddy’ from some madarassa?

    Well, I hope the Beef Janatha Party (BJP or simply put, the Beef party since they have so much beef against beef) lock the fellow and throw out the keys for good.

  5. “In Russia live Russians.-Mr.Deepak shetty

    Sir, The Republic of India is multilingual and multicultural country. Each state has their unique identity. But you are trying to impose on the indigenous people of the soil it will backfire.

    When North Indians are not welcome in Maharashtra within the sovereign on India,Hindi is not affluent language in Tamil Nadu,how does India stood up to diverse nation?

    Jai Hind
