Default New York bank 'bomb plot' foiled: A Bangladeshi arrested for plotting the attack.

US officials have arrested a man for plotting to detonate what he thought was a massive bomb in front of the Federal Reserve building in New York.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, of Bangladesh, travelled to the US with the intent of planning a terrorist attack, the FBI said.

Mr Nafis was arrested after he allegedly attempted to detonate what he thought was a 1,000lb (454kg) bomb.

There was never a threat, the FBI said, as Mr Nafis had been closely watched.

Are we trying to follow the evil footsteps of our South Asian neighbours?

You need only one or two black sheep to tarnish the image of the country.

What a shame. It's all over the news now here in nyc. We are slowly but surely becoming a terrorist country. This will damage our reputation here in US severely.

Putting aside the shameful act, it kind of made me chuckle how he went after a financial institution, as if the US isn't already knee deep in **** financially.

Hello Department of Homeland Security, every time you walk in and out of the US.

The US was actually giving out 5 year multiple entry visas to Bangladeshis quite normally past 2 years. Now we'll see what happens.

Just saw the news on Japanese TV, he had student visa as they say. Since he is 21 years old, I guess, he must have got there very recently, yet went for executing such heinous act which must have took considerable time for plan and prepare. Means what the hell he intended to study there? Was there any intention of study at all infact?

Yes, what a waste of a young life, but grave concern is the mind, the logic behind that not only justify such act but actually work for materialize! These holy crusade knights [minds] are not born and raised in 'Mars', rather just around us BD people too, which we should be well aware of.

There are many justifications used by people who support depraved acts. Just follow the news; a 14 year old child activist is shot in Pakistan in an act drawing universal condemnation, and yet some people are trying to justify it by claiming she was being groomed by CIA etc etc

A common "logic" that may be used in such cases is "they started it when they attacked us; now it is natural there will be reaction against them"....

হামলা পরিকল্পনা: নিউ ইয়র্কে ‘বাংলাদেশি’ গ্রেপ্তার
Thu, Oct 18th, 2012 9:01 am BdST
লাবলু আনসার

নিউ ইয়র্ক, অক্টোবর ১৮ (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম) - নিউ ইয়র্কের ফেডারেল রিজার্ভ বোমা মেরে উড়িয়ে দেয়ার পরিকল্পনার অভিযোগে এক বাংলাদেশি যুবককে গ্রেপ্তার করেছে পুলিশ ও এফবিআই।

বুধবার যুক্তরাষ্ট্রের বিচার বিভাগের এক বিবৃতিতে বলা হয়, কাজী মোহাম্মদ রেজওয়ানুল আহসান নাফিস (২১) নামের ওই বাংলাদেশির বিরুদ্ধে ব্যাপক বিধ্বংসী অস্ত্রের ব্যবহার ও জঙ্গি সংগঠন আল কায়েদাকে সহযোগিতা করার অভিযোগ আনা হয়েছে। দোষী সাব্যস্ত হলে তার যাবজ্জীবন কারাদণ্ড হতে পারে।

এফবিআই বলছে, স্থানীয় সময় বুধবার সকালে (বাংলাদেশে বুধবার সন্ধ্যা) ম্যানহাটানে ফেডারেল রিজার্ভ ব্যাংকের সামনে ‘বিস্ফোরকভর্তি’ ভ্যান দাঁড় করিয়ে নাফিস পাশের মিলেনিয়াম হিল্টন হোটেলে যান। সেখান থেকে তিনি ভ্যানে রেখে আসা সেলফোনে বার বার কল দিতে থাকেন এক হাজার পাউন্ড (৪৫৪ কোজি) বিস্ফোরকে বিস্ফোরণ ঘটানোর জন্য।

কিন্তু ভ্যানে সত্যিকারের বিস্ফোরক না থাকায় সেটি আর ফাটেনি।

নিউ ইয়র্ক পুলিশ বলছে, নাফিস আসলে এফবিআইয়ের পাতা ফাঁদে পা দেন। তার ওপর নজর রাখা হচ্ছিল গত জুলাই থেকেই। ভ্যানটি চালিয়ে আসার সময় যে লোকটি তার পাশে ছিলেন, তিনি আসলে এফবিআইয়ের একজন কর্মকর্তা, যাকে নাফিস চিনতে পারেননি।

ব্রুকলিন ফেডারেল কোর্টে নাফিসের বিরুদ্ধে দায়ের করা মামলায় বলা হয়েছে, চলতি বছরের জানুয়ারি মাসে শিক্ষা ভিসায় যুক্তরাষ্ট্রে আসেন নাফিস। আলকায়েদা নেটওয়ার্কের সঙ্গে সংশ্লিষ্ট এই যুবক সন্ত্রাসী হামলা চালানোর জন্য বিশ্বস্ত লোক খোঁজা শুরু করার পর গত জুলাইয়ে এফবিআইয়ের নজরে পড়েন।

মামলার এজাহারে বলা হয়েছে, নাফিস এমন পরিস্থিতি সৃষ্টি করতে চেয়েছিলেন, যাতে যুক্তরাষ্ট্রের অর্থনীতি তছনছ হয়ে যায়। প্রথমে তিনি চেয়েছিলেন যুক্তরাষ্ট্রের সবচেয়ে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ কোনো ব্যক্তিকে হত্যা করতে। এরপর তিনি রিজার্ভ ব্যাংক, নিউইয়র্ক স্টক এক্সচেঞ্জ ও বাল্টিমোরে সেনাবাহিনীর স্থাপনায় বোমা হামলার পরিকল্পনা করেন।

তার এ পরিকল্পনার কথা জানতে পেরে সহযোগী সেজে এফবিআই কর্মকর্তারাই তাকে ২০ ব্যাগ ‘নকল’ বিস্ফোরক সরবরাহ করেন, যাতে তাকে হাতেনাতে গ্রেপ্তার করা যায়।

ওয়াশিংটনে বাংলাদেশের রাষ্ট্রদূত আকরামুল কাদের ও জাতিসংঘে বাংলাদেশের স্থায়ী প্রতিনিধি এ কে মোমেন জানিয়েছেন, নাফিস নিউ ইয়র্কে বাংলাদেশি অধ্যুষিত জ্যামাইকায় বসবাস করতেন বলে তারা জানতে পেরেছেন। তার সম্পর্কে বিস্তারিত তথ্য উদঘাটনের চেষ্টা করছেন তারা। নাফিস ‘আসলেই বাংলাদেশি কি না’ তাও খোঁজ নিয়ে দেখা হচ্ছে।


এদিকে নাফিসের গ্রেপ্তারের ঘটনায় নতুন করে অস্বস্তিতে পড়েছেন যুক্তরাষ্ট্রে বসবাসরত বাংলাদেশিরা। ২০০১ সালের ১১ সেপ্টেম্বর নিউ ইয়র্কে টুইন টাওয়ারে হামলার ঘটনায় যুক্তরাষ্ট্রের মুসলিম অধ্যুষিত এলাকাগুলোতে বাংলাদেশি-আমেরিকানদেরও নানা ধরনের ধকল পোহাতে হয়। এরপর জর্জিয়ায় দুটি সন্ত্রাসী হামলার ষড়যন্ত্রের ঘটনায় আদালতে দোষী সাব্যস্ত হয়ে কারাগারে যান এহসানুল ইসলাম সাদেকী ও মোশারফ হোসেন নামের দুই বাংলাদেশি।

Yeah, needs to find out where he is from, his college or university, lets here out his family and neighbour. Media needs to go deep and follow up these news to let people know how and why these minds grow up in society. It wont take long to become 'Talebanized' if BD media do not dig deep.

While en route to his target, authorities say, Nafis detailed how his jihadist views were -- at least in part -- formed by watching video sermons by American-born al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed last year by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen.


Nafis was a student majoring in cybersecurity at Southeast Missouri State University from January to May of this year, said Ann Hayes, a spokeswoman for the university.

Whatever is banned/hated worldwide seems to eventually find it's way to Bangladesh. Banned mosquito sprays, horse feed disguised as daal, Yaba, match fixing, extra judicial killing etc etc the list goes on and on. It's really depressing to wake up every morning and realize that everyday the bad news always outweigh the good news in our country. I guess I shouldn't be surprised if religious extremism also finds it's there much in the same way it started in Pakistan.

Best of luck to those who just applied.

He was in my school and then went to NSU after HSC. Didn't even know he went to USA. If he can be brainwashed then everyone can be a terrorist. Not sure how a person like him can change so much in just 5 years.
