Sarfaraz Nawaz had joined Students Islamic Movement of India in 1995 and attended Nadwat-ul-Ulema in Lucknow and then worked at the SIMI HQ in Delhi in 2000. He was an Lashkar-e-Toibba operative in India. Basically, hired by LeT, this SIMI member was trained by LeT. 
He had attended meetings in Muscat along with Jasim alias Tahsin (a citizen of Pakistan) and another LeT operative named Ali. Jasim and Ali had discussed targeting Indian scientists from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The targets?
- Suresh Kumar
- A female Muslim scientist from UP (a lady scientist working in Agni missile project)
- G Madhavan Nair, Head of ISRO
In December, 2005 an attack was carried out on scientists of Indian Institute of Science, where one died (Professor MC Puri, retired Professor Emeritus in the Mathematics Department of Delhi’s IIT) and four got injured.
The main target, says Nawaz, are the scientists who work on India’s Space Programme. That is very significant.
It is not that the operatives of this Pakistan’s ISI-backed terrorist organization are just after India’s weapon-making know-how.. but they are after its progress itself! In fact, they cannot even tolerate that women – specially a Muslim – can be doing something at the forefront of science….. who they religiously believe, are no better than dogs or donkeys.
I have said this before as well, that in my eyes, the one main Litmus Test of knowing who is the recipient of Missile Proliferation and who is not is to see if that country has any Space Program. You CANNOT send a missile up in the air without having the satellite launching know-how. That is the reason why the world is fuming at the so-called satellite launch by North Korea. It is fairly obvious in which group Pakistan falls.
Some target progress and some target those who progress! This is the difference between those who have an Knowledge-defined Consciousness and Evil-defined Consciousness. The former group around the world hold conferences to find ways to find new and new ways to take humanity to the next frontier. They collaborate and exchange and compete with each other to do better and better. The latter look for ways to hold the ENTIRE humanity to its lowest possible consciousness-level! And since they love dwelling in that range of consciousness, they would like to hold the entire mankind at that level as well in that dark hole of ignorance and evil-laced world.
Really speaking that’s what it all comes down to – Knowledge vs Ignorance/Evil. Nothing more.
It doesn’t matter who wins “a” physical battle – Knowledge is the only salvation for Ignorance and Evil.
The very existence of Knowledge is the defeat of Ignorance.

2. Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 9 :: Hadith 493
The things which annul prayer were mentioned before me (and those were): a dog, a donkey and a woman. I said, “You have compared us (women) to donkeys and dogs. By Allah! I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in (my) bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I disliked to sit and trouble the Prophet. So, I would slip away by the side of his feet.”
