Government of Narendra Modi “Crush”: media group linked to IS | India News


NEW DELHI: The communal riots last week in Delhi have been mentioned in an article published by a media group aligned with the Islamic State, Al Talaal Media, on Telegram, with the author claiming that the Muslims of India were being ” deceived “and fed with” poison of nationalism “. The article called on the Muslims of India to “crush” the government of Narendra Modi and join the Islamic State.

According to an update on the SITE News Intelligence Group website, the English article published by Al Talaal Media on February 26, 2020, seeks to attend an audience in the Indian subcontinent and describes the historical and recent “oppression” that Muslims face in India. The author claims that the Muslims of India have been “deceived” and were fed the “poison of nationalism,” citing the 2002 communal riots in Gujarat, the recent “massacre” of Muslims in Uttar Pradesh and the current “oppression of Muslims in Delhi. ” as examples

The article concludes with a call to Muslims in India to “join the caravan of the Islamic State, protect the din and establish the Inshallah Caliphate”, and request protection against “harsh conditions” and “crush the fascist government of Modi. ”

Delhi witnessed communal riots on February 24 and 25 in parts of the northeast district. The violence occurred in the wake of continued protests by a section of Muslims against the Law on Citizenship Amendment.

The groups linked to the Islamic State now seem to be interested in the violence of Delhi in what intelligence sources said could be an attempt to exploit the negative sentiment to radicalize and influence Indian Muslims to join their ranks.

A graphic published on February 27, 2020, attributed to the al-Qitaal Media Center, presented an image of a Muslim man beaten by a mafia during the recent violence in Delhi, with the Quranic verse: “The permit (to fight) has been given to those who are being fought, because they were harmed. And in fact, Allah is competent to give them victory. (They are) those who have been evicted from their homes without rights, just because they say “Our Lord is Allah.”
