Al-Qaeda using US preoccupation with IS to spread to India, says report

Al-Qaeda has used America's "preoccupation" with the Islamic State (IS) to regain strength in South Asia and preparing to spread its ideology in India from its "home" in western Pakistan, Bruce Hoffman, Director, Center for Security Studies at Georgetown University, told members of the House Armed Services Committee, NDTV reports on February 17. "Al-Qaeda has never changed, and it still sees itself in what it conceives as an existential struggle against the West and against the United States in particular," Bruce Hoffman, stated.

"I think that it's taken advantage of our preoccupation with ISIS to rebuild its strength, particularly in South Asia, where, again, almost completely escaped notice when they created al-Qaida in the Indian Subcontinent which was designed simultaneously to reinvigorate its presence in Afghanistan," he told Congressman Mac Thornberry, chairman of the committee. During a Congressional hearing on terrorism and counter- terrorism strategies yesterday, Hoffman said al-Qaeda "had been preparing to spread its ideology to India", which has the world's second-largest Muslim population.
