New Delhi, 11 pm, May 29, 2010 - About 200 Jihadists led by one Salim Javed and armed with sticks, stones and swords raising their war cry of "Allah O Akbar" laid siege to a house under S.R. Nagar Police Station at Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh at 10.15 p.m. on Friday, May 28, 2010 to launch a pre-planned attack on Dr. Pravinbhai Togadia, Secretary General of Vishva Hindu Parishad. Dr Togadiya was at the house of a VHP sympathiser for dinner. Dr Togadiya was on the Hyderabad leg of his routine All Bharat tour conducting peaceful organizational programmes. He had no public programme at Hyderabad city – he came there only in the evening after attending an organizational camp programme far away from the city.
VHP President Sri Ashok Singhal has sounded the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister, Leaders of Opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, the Chief Minister and the Home Minister of Andhra Pradesh about the incident drawing their attention to the fact that this Jihadi posture has very serious implications. "After the Godhra incident, this is the first time that Jihadi elements tried to repeat their terrorist act of this nature.", Sri Singhal reminded them. Sri Singhal informed that the Hyderabad police was very lethargic in taking action. It came after 45 minutes and quelled the Jihadists.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad and all its Chapters have taken this threat very seriously. VHP has requested the Central and the State Governments to bring to book the anti-national Jihadists and take stern action taken against them, so that such incidents do not recur anywhere in the country.
