The SIMI and the ISIS have tried to rile up the Indian Muslims with the objective to fight for a Caliphate and overthrow the democratically elected government. Riots in Delhi show how Indian Muslims have been tricked by such outfits
In the year 1996, the Students Islamic Movement of India had issued a statement. It said that democracy and secularism had failed to protect the Indian Muslims. The sole option now is to fight for a Caliphate, the SIMI had said.
The statement is eerily similar to the one put out by the Islamic State during the northeast Delhi riots. The ISIS too had said on its Telegram channel that it was time for the Indian Muslims to unite and overthrow the democratically elected government.
