'Be ready India, we are coming', warns Indian IS leader

Abdul Rashid, a fugitive Islamic State (IS) preacher from Kerala, has sent out a warning to India, claiming the Islamic Caliphate will expand and reach India in the near future, reports on May 18. A native of Trikaripur in Kasaragod District of Kerala, Rashid was part of a 21-member group, including women and children, that went missing from Kerala last year and later joined the IS in Afghanistan. He is currently functioning as the leader of the terror outfit's Kerala members in the Nangarhar Province, and is sought by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

"We have lots of people in India, and we tell them: wait, we are coming. The Islamic State is growing far faster than you can imagine. The aim is for the whole world to be ruled by the law of Allah, so he alone is worshipped, not false gods,” the Indian Express quoted Rashid as saying. However, the youth admitted that it is impossible to wage ‘offensive jihad’ in India at the moment. He has called jihadists in the country to travel to Afghanistan and help the terror outfit consolidate the Caliphate, instead of plotting attacks inside India.

“Today, it is impossible to wage offensive jihad in India. Perhaps we can carry out one or two lone wolf attacks, or a strike here or there, but not true offensive jihad. First, we have to consolidate the Caliphate, and then expand its frontiers,” the fugitive pointed out. “Islam spread by the sword, not by peace. The Prophet Muhammad, the Caliph Abu Bakr Siddiq, and those that followed them, conquered the world by the sword, not by doing dawah. Hypocritical scholars misguide the people. Muslim leaders in India claim that it is possible for Muslims to practise their faith 100% in India: we can pray, fast, go for hajj, and so on. But the hypocrites stay silent on the Quranic commandment for Muslims to engage in offensive jihad," he added.
