A bunch of handwritten notes were recovered from Jamesha Mubin’s house, the key accused in the Coimbatore blast case on Thursday, November 3. These contained notes on hadith (record of the words, actions, and the silent approval of Prophet Muhammad) and jihad (fight against enemies of Islam).

One note says humans are divided into Muslims and non-Muslims. Apart from that, the police had also found a note on who has the duty of jihad, and who does not have such a duty.

Taking to Twitter, Alphonse also asked, “How did the criminal get it? Let the BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party] answer!”
