    The security measures for the Israeli community center ‘Chabad’ in Pushkar will continue to remain in the upcoming international cattle fair. This comes with the Central government’s directions to continue securing the Israeli community center, which no one except an Israeli national is allowed to enter. The place is provided 24 hours armed security by the state government.

    The Israeli ‘chabad’ has been running in this town for the last 20 years, but it was on a small level. But after it was closed down in Goa, where it existed earlier, Chabad was shifted near the old bus stand on the entrance of Pushkar.

    The community center came into limelight after the Pakistani born terrorist David Headley disclosed during his interrogation in America that before Mumbai serial blast he also went to Pushkar and mapped the Chabad center.

    Sources said that considering the fact that the center is located in the major area of the town, the district administration had asked the Chabad officials to shift the center to some other place. “Shifting of the center was also the demand of the Pushkar priest association, which other organisations supported. However, the center administration did not agree to it as it is running on leased premises,” said an official.

    He added that Israelis said that they were using this center as a correction center for the youth coming to India, where they are also taught Israeli culture and feeling of brotherhood. In Pushkar, Israelis form the main tourists and can be seen throughout the year.

    With the cattle fair and Diwali around the corner, suspecting possibilities of disturbance around the area, the central government has directed the state to increase security of the Israeli Chabad.

    For district police, security measures have been a big issue in the past. “With the district police having faced a large setback after the fleeing of notorious criminal Anandpal along with his two associates, now providing foolproof security to the community center is a prime task,” further said official source.

    The police was also found lacking in management last month when there was a bomb scare in the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. The control room located the location of the caller, which was just outside the gate of the dargah. “The department traced the caller’s location continuously, which was traced to the railway station and then Agra. The police was unable to nab him,” added a source.

    In light of the current directions by the Central government, an official source added, “This is the first foreign nationals’ worshipping center where the Indian government is providing such tight security without knowing what happens inside it.”
