Dangerous jihadist plot against India exposed

Investigation into the case of gruesome murder of Kanhaiya Lal which is being conducted by the National Investigation Agency and Anti Terrorist Squad in India, it was reveled that Pakistan-based jihadist outfit Dawat-e-Islami with the help of other militancy outfits had formed a 40member team in Rajasthan with the nefarious agenda of targeting Nupur Sharma, former Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and those who are defending her or voice in her favor. According to information, these jihadist nexuses had prepared a hit-list, which was supposed to be executed by its members.

As per reports, the 40 people linked to Dawat-e-Islami were assigned with the task of “teaching a lesson” to those who publish posts on social media in support of Nupur Sharma.

The investigation agencies found out about the conspiracy by checking the call details of terrorists Riyaz Attari and Mohammad Gos, who were arrested for brutally killing Hindu tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur for a social media post supporting Nupur Sharma.

During the investigation, 20 mobile numbers of 10 people from Pakistan were investigated. Reportedly, the 40 people from India were given a target list to spread panic in India by publishing beheading videos in Taliban style. People associated with Dawat-e-Islami in six districts in Rajasthan were given the task of teaching a lesson to people for supporting Nupur Sharma.

Notably, NIA interrogated six people, including Sadar Mujeeb Siddiqui of Anjuman Talimul Islam, Maulana Zulkarnain, former Sadar Khaleel Ahmed co-secretary Umar Farooq, and two lawyers in Udaipur on Tuesday. These people were questioned after being taken into custody by the investigating agency. NIA also searched the house of Sadar Mujeeb. During the investigation, NIA also found that objectionable religious books were being sold in Ajmer at the shops opened by Dawat-e-Islami. The booksellers were paid Rs 250 per day to sell those books. Riyaz and Gos used to distribute such books from these book shops.

Meanwhile, global jihadist outfit Islamic State (ISIS) has made fresh a fresh attempt to make its presence felt in Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and has claimed responsibility for the murder of an assistant sub-inspector of police.

As per reports, ISIS released a purported video of the attack to claim responsibility. The video was released by the propaganda arm of the terror group, Amaq, which showed grainy video filmed using a body camera.

As per security officials, jihadists have started using body cameras to film their attacks with the nefarious agenda of glamourizing their actions, hoping it would attract other Muslims towards jihad.

So far, ISIS and Al Qaeda have tried to make inroads in the valley using their local affiliates Wilayat-e-Hind and Ansar Ghazwat ul Hind, respectively.

But, due to the sustained efforts of the security forces, neither of the two foreign groups has managed to gain a foothold in Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, the establishment media a few years ago made a full-court press to convince Americans that “Allahu akbar” was a benign phrase that only greasy Islamophobes could possibly be concerned about.

In the New York Daily News, Zainab Chaudry of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued that non-Muslims shouldn’t “believe the worst” about “Allahu Akbar” because Muslims don’t just scream it while murdering non-Muslims, but use it in a variety of contexts. She even offered this chilling advice, certain to get people killed were it ever heeded:

“So the next time you hear Allahu Akbar — whether it’s in a media report, on an airplane, or in a shopping mall, remember that the phrase used by millions of Muslims and Christians daily to praise God regardless of their circumstances, can never be justified for use when harming His creation”. So stay put, evidently; fleeing would be “Islamophobic”.

On CNN, Omar Suleiman — the imam who prevailed upon Google to alter their search results so as to bury any negative information about Islam — also argued that Muslims say “Allahu Akbar” in a variety of contexts, many of them positive. And the New York Times actually tweeted that the phrase

“Allahu Akbar” had “somehow” become “intertwined with terrorism”.

Somehow! How could this have possibly happened? Could it have anything to do with the thousands of Muslims who have screamed “Allahu Akbar” while in the process of murdering or trying to murder infidels?

It may be mentioned here that, Allahu Akbar is one of the most frequently used slogans by the radical Muslims and jihadist outfits.
