Thomas Issac: It is impossible to stop hawala

thomas issacThiruvanathapuram:As per Wikileaks, former Finance Minister Thomas Isaac in his discussions with US political counselor and consulate staff  raised the subject of the informal money transfer system known as “hawala,” and gulf funding of Indian terrorist groups.

He said, it is”impossible” to stop the movement of funds from the Gulf states to Kerala.  Isaac is said to have told the US Political Counselor that money from the Gulf is”definitely funding Indian terrorist groups,” including the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and the group that claimed responsibility for the recent bombings in Bangalore and Ahmedabad,the Indian Mujahideen.

Isaac said it is likely that the Keralites help to get the money to the Indian terror groups, but that the funds come from “wealthy Gulf Arabs.”
