AMONG THOSE arrested in connection with the recent terror plot to blow up transatlantic airliners, the key figures seem to be linked to the Tablighi Jamaat, an orthodox Islamic movement that was formed in India in 1927. Its headquarters was in Nizamuddin, Delhi.

The followers of the Tablighi Jamaat have to adhere to strict tenets of Islam. However, now security agencies - not just in Britain but across Europe and in the US- are concerned that the missionary movement has become a sleeper or active cell of militants and has links to Al Qaeda.
