Hindu Qaida

London, Nov. 7: Dhiren Barot, a Hindu boy who grew up in a traditional Indian family in London and then converted to Islam before becoming a top-ranking al Qaida terrorist, has been jailed for life in Britain.

Dhiren is charged with plotting to blow up the New York Stock Exchange and carry out attacks in Britain with gas-filled limousines and a “dirty bomb”. Now 34, he will be 74 before being considered for parole. “You are, Mr Barot, a determined and dedicated terrorist, a highly intelligent and extremely dangerous man,” Judge Butterfield said.
