Ex Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria has made some statements on the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack and said the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) planned to showcase this as "Hindu terror".



He went to say that Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Kasab was supposed to die as Samir Chaudhari and he was even given a fake ID as Hindu to term him as Hindu terrorists.

The book stated that the ISI and LeT have tried their level best to eliminate Kasab, the mastermind behind the Mumbai Terrot attacks in the jail as he was the main evidence in the attack.

"If everything went according to plan, Kasab would have died as Choudhary and the media would have blamed 'Hindu terrorists' for the attack," Maria wrote in the book.

He wrote describing the attacks" it was the handiwork of central agencies. The Mumbai Police tried hard to not disclose any details to media fearing for the security."

"There would have been screaming headlines in newspapers claiming how Hindu terrorists had attacked Mumbai. Over the top TV journalists would have made a beeline for Bengaluru to interview his family and neighbours. But alas, it had not worked that way and here he was, Ajmal Amir Kasab of Faridkot in Pakistan," Maria wrote in the book.

"Kasab joined the ranks of LeT to commit robberies and had nothing to do with jihad. Such, however, was the indoctrination, that Kasab was made to believe that Muslims were not allowed to offer namaaz in India," the book stated.
