Here some shameless Indians as usual putting there nonsense here and branding others which is absolutely against the forum. These shameless Indians think they are over over smart and with their fake ego whatever they say is right. They usually do not stop until they are humiliated on their face. This time these idiots are wanting something similar.

On topic from some report what I have seen about the youth is that he is just a wannabe punk who was chatting in a facebook page and there expressed his desire to form a terrorist cell and plan to blow the federal reserve bank. That was picked up by FBI agent who then contacted him and perused him to carry out the attack for Al Qaeda and provided all material support though he was continuously monitored. Seeing this kids it does not look like it does not look like ****** mullah but his effort and activity has given the Bangladeshis a bad name...

The following link contain video and picture of the guy...

Suspect arrested for Fed Reserve Bank attack plot - CBS News


The following video is from FOX news though I do not like this but it is more detailed report....

But in some places they mentioned him as Pakistani and middle eastern...


If this is the case, many in the world especially Bangladeshi can easily be victim of such trap. For example, BD people on this forum relentlessly use abusive words about BD politicians and they can be arrested plotting such entrapment. If a 21-year boy is on a way to be violent, he needs counseling at least in USA. What would be the case for a white boy who didn't yet commit any violence? Surely US authority would follow a correctional way and for this boy they plotted entrapment and found no big connection. USA is axing on its toe from sheer paranoia. Even on PDF many Pakistani abuse their govt., president while Pakistan is known for its poor democracy. But USA is heading towards police state. One of my friends working in NYPD told me that his FB account is monitored by authority and there are many such obstacles for him there, so he doesn't use FB or social networking a lot.

On Topic :-

Rule of thumb - Never believe what the western media feeds you. As simple as that.

Its another conspiracy by the Elite-controlled US Government. As one guy said earlier in the 1st page..its probably another FBI job. Those who cant swallow it..too bad for you.


Cheers!!!

The media is not controlled by the US Government. They are typically influenced by corporations, particularly the ones that have shares in them.

Conspiracy or not, that Nafis fella was a fool to have gotten involved in the ring in the first place. Certainly, there were some twists to this sting operation by the FBI. And there's no evidence of him having any links to terrorist groups.

Rule of thumb: Don't get involved in shady activities, particularly the ones that say bombs and stuff. It doesn't matter which part of the world one is in.

They'll catch you even with the slightest evidence of actually implementing those intentions. There's a fine line between that.

And besides, many Muslims study in US universities and elsewhere in the Western World.

"Fascist America" is already in many discussions on the Internet.

Particularly after the US decided to go for "indefinite detentions" of suspects.

Just went through the video, thanks Capt. Planet. Hope this idiot rot in American jail cells for the rest of his life.

You see Capt. Planet, what Indians do in pdf, what kind of jokes they make, makes very little difference in real life. If you are willing to engage them, they will entertain you, think about that.

But what this young man did is of entirely different magnitude. He just labeled an entire country as a terrorist country and painted all of us Muslim Bangladeshi's with a broad brush. So lets not worry about what Indians say here and lets worry about the real problem.

I am waiting to find out more details about the family of this idiot, what school he went to, what mosque he went to and precisely how he developed these terrorist world view that motivated him to blow up building full of people following the path of Osama Bin Laden. Has Bangladesh really gone to that level? This really makes me worried.

This however may also be a boon for Awami League now, and prevent BNP-Jamat coming to power. Lets see how well Awami League is able to seize on this opportunity and run with it. All bets are off now. This idiot could become a game changer.

This idiot could be a guinea pig as well...just a possibility. Our pro-active police have already knocked his door in BD, do you smell anything? Don't forget prince Joy lives in USA, his research at Harvard on militant uprise in BD and in our army had connection with BDR mutiny. And also don't forget USA vanished a country on false propaganda without any shame. So a 21-year boy might suffer for dirty politics...just saying the possibility seeing everyone's excitement.

If he were a terrorist or any ultra connection were proved, I had nothing to say because I hate taliban/al-qaeda. The way he was trapped many good people will fall victim this way only for showing their hatred to anyone.

Price Joy!! It's just amazing!!! :woot:

That guy owns various property in Jacksonville, Florida. And owns shares in various US corporations. Where'd you think he got all the money from in such a short time?

I mean, it's amazing that Western nations send aid money, while that money goes into the pockets of the ruling corrupt, and sent back to the country of origin :rofl:

As I said, it's just amazing level of hypocrisy.

And oh, here is his "research" regarding extremists in Bangladesh Army:

Detectives grill Nafis' family | Bangladesh | bdnews24.com

Detectives grill Nafis' family

Liton Haider

Chief Crime Affairs Correspondent

Dhaka, Oct 18 (bdnews24.com)— The police detectives on Thursday raided the Jatrabari residence of Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, who has been arrested in the United States for allegedly attempting to blow up the New York Federal Reserve Bank, and questioned his family members.

"His family lives at 107/4, North Jatrabari residence. His father Quazi Mohammad Ahsanullah is a Vice President of the National Bank," Deputy Police Commissioner (Detective Branch) Monirul Islam told bdnews24.com immediately after the raid.

He added that Nafis was a student of the North South University and before that, had studied in the Dhaka College. The police official added that he also had a sister.

The 21-year-old Nafis was arrested by the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Detectives later briefed journalists about the grilling at a press conference.

Islam said they were verifying whether Nafis had any links to the militants while he was in Bangladesh.

"His guru will also be traced if it is found he had been a disciple of someone in Bangladesh."

Islam said their drive to find more about Nafis is spontaneous and that they did not get any request from US.

Nafis's father was unwilling to believe what was revealed to him about his son. He believes Nafis was framed. He sought police cooperation in getting in touch with his son to talk about the matters, Islam further said.

Nafis was studying cyber security in America.

The bomb charge

The US Department of Justice said in a statement on Wednesday following the arrest that Nafis had been charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and provide material support to al Qaeda. He faces life sentence in prison if convicted.

The FBI said on Wednesday morning (evening in Bangladesh) Nafis parked a van laden with 'explosives' in front of the bank in Manhattan and went to the adjacent Millennium Hilton Hotel. From there, he repeatedly tried to set off the mobile phone detonator of the 1000-pound bomb. However, it did not explode as the explosives were fake.

The NYPD said that Nafis was led on by an undercover FBI agent into their trap. He was under surveillance since July after he tried to search out reliable associates to carry out the attack on behalf of al Qaeda.

Bangladesh Foreign Ministry said it is working to confirm Nafis's identity with US State Department.

"Bangladesh embassy in Washington has been in contact with the US State Department. We are trying to confirm Nafis's identity. Bangladesh embassy will seek consulate access if it is confirmed that Nafis is a Bangladeshi citizen," said the ministry's Director General (America) Mahfuzur Rahman.

Consulate access means allowing a diplomat from the embassy to meet Nafis in person to talk.

According to the complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court, Nafis travelled to the United States in January 2012 on a student visa.

Once in New York, he claimed to be in contact with al Qaeda members overseas, although federal agents found no evidence that he was working for al Qaeda or that he was directed by the organisation, according to Reuters, which quoted an unnamed US official.

The complaint also said that Nafis planned to create an anarchy that could upset the US economy. He initially planned to kill a high-ranking government official, whom the US official identified as President Barack Obama. Later, he changed the plan and targeted the Reserve Bank, New York Stock Exchange and the US Military base in Baltimore.

To create a cell to help him carry out the bombing, Nafis began to seek out recruits, eventually bringing on board an undercover agent working for the FBI. The infiltrator supplied him with the fake explosives to ensure that the bomb did not go off and catch Nafis red-handed.

White House Spokesman Jay Carney said President Obama had been briefed about the arrest.

"Attempting to destroy a landmark building and kill or maim untold numbers of innocent bystanders is about as serious as the imagination can conjure," said Mary Galligan, FBI Acting Assistant Director-in-charge. "The defendant faces appropriately severe consequences."

Bangladesh's Ambassador to Washington Akramul Quader and UN Resident Representative A K Momen said that they had found out that Nafis lived in the 'Jamaica' suburb of New York, which housed mostly Bangladeshis. They are trying to find out more details.

Discomfort for expats in US

His arrest has created more discomfort for the Bangladeshis living in the US. After the 1/11 attack in 2011, US citizens with origins in Bangladesh, viewed as a 'moderate Muslim country', have been under surveillance.

Later, Bangladeshis Ehsanul Islam Sadequi and Mosharraf Hossain were jailed for plotting two attacks in Georgia.

The story of Nafis has been the top news in the US media since his arrest on Wednesday, increasing concern of Bangladeshis in the US.

International terrorist networks were still engaged in plots to launch attacks, the US Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Peter T King of Seaford, who is currently serving his 10th term in the US House of Representatives, told reporters after Nafis' arrest.

Confusion about Nafis' roots

Ambassador Quader told bdnews24.com, "Bangladesh's name is everywhere in the media now. We've communicated with the State Department to get the name of the arrested youth's father and his address. We also want to know where he was studying."

"At first, we'll have to be sure about his citizenship. He may not be a Bangladeshi despite carrying a Bangladeshi passport. Rohingyas are also collecting Bangladeshi passports," he added.

UN Resident Representative Momen told bdnews24.com, "Even if Nafis is a Bangladeshi, it is a separate story. The people and the government of Bangladesh do not believe in terrorism."

There is some truth to that someone smarter would not get caught like this, but all terrorists are dumb idiots in my opinion.

I do not feel much sympathy for the mother or his family, sorry to say it. I am more curious about his upbringing to find out what made him like this:

- his family upbringing
- mosque he went to (he does not sound like a mosque going guy, but I could be wrong, likes Eminem?)
- his English medium school, was it one of those Arabic leaning schools in Gulshan
- his academic records
- his basic intelligence, IQ etc.

Perhaps that school is one of the most expensive in Dhaka run by Australian authority..not Arabic leaning. Hope one knows well about English medium schools in Dhaka will shed light on this.

You know, it's not beyond belief that he could go to court, plead innocent, win his case, and walk out a free man. These entrapment cases are often very difficult for the FBI to pull off successfully.
