‘Pakistan Zindabad’ poster in Hajipur threatens bomb blasts in station and Sonepur Mela, demands release of radical Maulana

The poster threatening bomb blasts at the Hajipur Junction and Sonepur Mela had gone viral on social media on Thursday. It had demanded the release of a Maulana named Mohammad Shabbir, who was arrested in September over radical activities.

The picture of a poster at Hajipur that threatened to bomb-blast the Hajipur railway station and Sonepur Mela has caused the administration to deploy additional security measures in the area. As per reports, the image of the poster had gone viral on social media in Hajipur area on Thursday.

Reports say that on Thursday, the poster went viral on social media. It said, “Jihad, Jihad, Jihad, Pakistan Zindabad, Release Mohammad Shabbir or Hajipur Junction and Sonepur Mela will be blown away within three days.”

Reports say that a local student had first noticed the poster near the Samaharnalaya Gate at Hajipur. The student and some other persons had shared the image of the poster on social media which went viral soon, creating panic among the people. The Hajipur administration was soon alerted and upon SDPO’s order, police personnel were sent to scan the Hajipur station and nearby areas.

Security checks were initiated and metal detectors were used to scan every corner of the busy railway station. The police have also requested citizens to immediately alert the forces if they see any suspicious object or person. The police reportedly failed to locate the poster that had gone viral.

Who is Mohammad Shabbir

Mohammad Shabbir is a local Madarsa teacher who was arrested in September over allegations of running a terrorist sleeper cell. A local Muslim family in Hajipur had alleged that Shabbir was instigating their son Khalid to join terrorist activities. Shabbir had kidnapped Khalid and had fled to Mumbai. He was eventually arrested in Mumbai by Hajipur police and is currently under custody.

Khalid, a 12-year-old boy from Bihar’s Vaishali district, was allegedly being pressurised by Shabbir to join radical Islamist activities. Shabbir, who was a Maulana in a madarsa in Patepur, had urged the family to allow the boy to stay with him and had enrolled him in a school in Patna. However, when the family was notified by the school administration that Khalid’s activities were suspicious, they found that Khalid had an expensive smartphone, where Shabbir used to share messages related to jihad and violent Islamist ideologies.

Shabbir was allegedly involved with a group named Al-Furkan and was trying to get Khalid involved with the group. When Khalid’s family tried to take him back, Shabbir had kidnapped Khalid. He was eventually arrested in Mumbai.
