In 2012, an Israeli Chabad couple suspected to be working for Mossad were expelled from India for spying. The duo, suspected of Mossad membership, was seen as suspicious for holding late-night meetings and renting a house at far above market value. The married couple were suspected of being Israeli agents or spies. Undercover police officers tracked them for a year before filing a deportation order. The state intelligence department said that the couple regularly held meetings at their rented house and were under close surveillance.
As to the exact reasons of what they were doing and why they were deported, the Kerala government informed the High court that British-born Jewish writer Susan Nathan, facing deportation, had “close connections” with Islamic extremist groups in the state. The writer was staying in a house in Kozhikode allegedly arranged by Aboobacker, former Vice President of the banned Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).
If we follow the brief history of Chabad House then it is clear that this spiritual Israeli sect has rubbed off many times on both sides of the law. Chabad Houses are Mossad Safe Houses and are used as a go between for various intelligence agents of every country. Nariman House in Mumbai is one of these Chabad Houses that was involved in the 26/11 attacks as we already reported in 26/11 – What Really Happened At Nariman Chabad House. There are many such Mossad Safe Houses in India which are used as fronts for their operations. For more on the entire history of Chabad Movement refer to our report 26/11 Mumbai Attacks Part II – A High Profile Meet & An Assassination.
Since a long time Mossad has been working on infiltrating Islamic and Hindu radical outfits in South Asia. One such plot was exposed in 2000 when Indian intelligence officials in Calcutta detained 11 foreign nationals for interrogation before they were to board a Dhaka-bound Bangladesh Biman flight on the suspicion of being hijackers.
When the Indian officials realized that they were tabliqis (Islamic preachers), they let them go. They had planned to attend an Islamic convention near Dhaka, but Bangladesh refused them visa. Later, seemingly under Israeli pressure, India allowed them to fly to Tel Aviv.

As reported by The Week:
The eleven had Israeli passports but were believed to be Afghan nationals who had spent a while in Iran. They had secured landing permits for Dhaka and one-way tickets on Bangladesh Biman’s Calcutta-Delhi route through a Delhi-based travel agency.
To the Bangladesh Biman officials the eleven, who were all Muslims, appeared “too murky”. Indian intelligence officials, too, were surprised by the nationality profile of the eleven.
“It is not unlikely for Mossad to recruit 11 Afghans in Iran and grant them Israeli citizenship to penetrate a network such as Bin Laden’s. They would begin by infiltrating them into an Islamic radical group in an unlikely place like Bangladesh,” said intelligence analyst Ashok Debbarma. The pressure exerted on India by Israel for the release of the men, and the hurry with which they were flown back suggested an aborted operation’.
Than in 2014 India’s top counter-terrorism agency had uncovered a suspected plot by a banned militant group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen to assassinate the prime minister of Bangladesh and carry out a coup. The alleged conspiracy was discovered after two members of the group were killed in an explosion while building homemade bombs at a house in West Bengal in eastern India.
The militants were Bangladeshis and were using India as a safe haven to plan the attacks. “The strategy was to hit the political leaders of the country and demolish the democratic infrastructure of Bangladesh,” said a senior Indian Home (interior) Ministry official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “This was all being planned on Indian soil and we could have been blamed if there was an attack.”
Intelligence agencies often operate in other countries by using local hitmen/criminal gangs as a cover and a buffer to avoid detection as we saw happened in the 26/11 Mumbai Attacks. So even when the plot is exposed all evidence will point towards the local culprits shielding the major geopolitical players from the crime – a classic false flag. What is happening here is the use of the local Islamic militia as a cover and India as a base to launch an attack on Bangladesh, and finally throw the blame on India by foreign spies.
For many years, British and Israeli intelligence agencies have been trying to penetrate Indian establishments. This first hand intelligence is needed by them to make decisions on economic policies and gain benefits for their native corporations. India has also set up its massive counter intelligence wing to deal with such penetration. Of late it has become easier for Israeli and British intelligence to penetrate rightwing organizations and thus have access to other departments of the Indian government, aided by a shared ideology on Islamic terrorism. The same tactic is utilized while penetrating the Islamic militant organisations as we saw in the above cases. It is this very infiltration angle and the nexus between rightwing organizations and Israeli intelligence, thus US intelligence, which was uncovered by the slain ATS Chief Hemant Karkare. He was assassinated for the fear of this very nexus being uncovered and the geopolitical players exposed.
This is just a gist of a more comprehensive analysis on the subject of foreign infiltration of radical outfits in India to be published in the next issue of GreatGameIndia – India’s only quarterly magazine on Geopolitics and International Affairs.
