Any Malaysian Linked to Mumbai Attacks?

Former CNN reporter, Maria Ressa, has quoted unnamed Indian intelligence sources as saying that one of the gunmen, now under police custody, has said that the terrorists pretended to be students, stayed in Mumbai apartments and allegedly carried Malaysian identity cards. They were also believed to be linked to Al-Qaeda. The Times of India reported that the terrorists posed as Malaysian students.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar explained that there are no Malaysian linked to Mumbai attacks. Malaysian IC found in Mumbai, the card could belong to a Malaysian tourist as a number were staying at the hotels affected. But we sure don't want to hear another Malaysian appear as world terrorist such as Azahari Husin (2002 Bali Bombing) and Noordin Mohammed Top ( 2002 Bali bombing, the 2003 JW Marriott hotel bombing in Jakarta, the 2004 Jakarta embassy bombing and the 2005 Bali bombing).

If yes not any Malaysian involved, so why the terrorist using the Malaysian travel document? Malaysia was before linked to few terrorist organization for example, al Ma'unah, al Qa'eda and Jemaah Islamiah. So no doubt if any Malaysian involved in the attacks. May be the travel document found in Mumbai is a single mention but certainly it is a serious allegation indeed. Malaysia should give full cooperation to Interpol in order to prove that its a false allegation.

In my comment in the guardian Comment is Free article above, this is what I wrote:

This is no pure domestic terrorism. As I have argued over and over again, this is fundamentally part of the Al-Qaeda-Taleban ideological network, that is now based not just in Pakistan but also in Bangladesh. The (medieval-minded male) Islamist fanatical groups, that are mushrooming locally from these bases are the most dangeous threat after the Nazis, in the 21st. century. Thus is why, NATO must stay in Afghanistan, in such a just war. And such ideology is so dangeously fanatical as these medieval Islamist males considered themselves the "holy warrior" specifically chosen by THEIR (MALE) GOD to set up the Islamic Empire all over. Such Empire was imaginary at first, but the Iraq War opportunistically made it into possible reality in their extremely warped minds. If only the hard-left especially in the west would realize this and stop siding with these Islamists, especially based in the west, where many have infiltrated hard-left western groups. Besides, what kind of religion is this that supposedly sanctioned the single or mass murder of innocent ordinary people; such are the cowardice acts and barbarians that use religion as their scapegoat to blind unconscious believers and supporters!

Noor Aza Othman,

(Also, I would add further, now these Islamists from Pakistan and Bangladesh has made Malaysia and Indonesia as part of the Al-Qaeda/Taleban bases and this is not imaginary, of which I have commented many times before, due to the rise of Islamic fanaticism in both countries that are influencing dangerously Malaysian and Indonesian Muslims, including the fanatical PAS!)
