The Islamic State group (ISIS) has threatened attacks on India and is planning to send local terror groups from Bangladesh and Pakistan, a report has revealed. The terror group has threatened to send its fighters to India to carry out ‘guerrilla attacks’ in the country. The ‘amir’ of ISIS fighters in Bangladesh, Shaykh Abu Ibrahim al-Hanif, in a recent interview to Dabiq magazine, has vowed to wipe out Hindus from India and implement ‘sharia’ law in both India and Bangladesh.

He also revealed that the ISIS is not only providing training to its fighters in Bangladesh and Pakistan but is also seeking local Mujahideen’s help in the country, a leading English daily reported. Al-Hanif said Muslims are facing troble because of Hindus in India and the intention behind the attack is to get rid of disbelievers in the country.

“Bengal is located on the eastern side of India, whereas Wilayat Khurasan is located on its western side. Thus, having a strong jihad base in Bengal will facilitate performing guerrilla attacks inside India simultaneously from both sides and facilitate creating a condition of tawahhush (fear and chaos) in India along with the help of the existing local mujahidin there…,” al-Hanif was quoted as saying in the magazine.

“This would allow IS fighters to enter with a conventional army and completely liberate the region from the mushrikin (disbelievers), after first getting rid of the ‘Pakistani’ and ‘Afghani’ regimes”, he added.
