Mumbai: The book named ‘The Betrayal of India: Revisiting the Evidence 26/11’ written by Elias Davidsson, a Palestinian born, was released by Zafru lislam Khan, a Publisher of Pharos Media, on February 10, at the Press Club at Azad Maidan. The book talks about how the 26/11 terror attack was planned.
The author who has done many investigations on terror attacks and mass murders across the world like Hijacking America’s Mind on 9/11, Djerba (Tunisisa), Istanbul (Turkey), Amman (Jordan) and the London bombing of 2005, decided to examine the Mumbai attack of November 2008.
He intended to publish an anthology on various terrorist attacks, each of them treated within 20-30 pages. He discovered the investigation of Mumbai attack would require far more space that could be accommodated within an article.
He allegedly accused the role of the Intelligence Bureau and said that they have prior information of this terror attack but they did not do anything good to safeguard the citizen. They got the 35 mobile number which was likely to be used by terrorist on November 21, five days before the attack but had not informed the Mumbai Police.
The book intends to represent a comprehensive and critical study of 26/11 which covers the whole episode of the event, the responses of police and National Security Guard (NSG), alleged intelligence failure, the mystery surrounding Ajmal Kasab, court proceeding, and assessment of motives.
His major conclusion are that India’s major institution are suppressing the truth on 26/11, India’s judiciary has betrayed its duty to seek truth and render justice.
The Author could not come to Mumbai due to health issues but ensured his message was delivered by Zafrul Islam on his behalf.
