Jihad is just not cool. The ISIS which had said once that they want to make Jihad look cool has clearly let down several radicals who had left their homes and joined them in Syria and Iraq.
The Bangladesh investigators apart from questioning the suspects in the Burdwan blasts have also given our agencies vital leads on how Saradha funds had helped carry out this operation.
Finances: Several crores of Indian rupees had been transferred to the Islamic Bank in Bangladesh which were used to fund the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh module.
Areef alias Areeb Majid, the youth who joined the ISIS only to return disillusioned, has been giving a lot of information to the National Investigating Agency (NSA). Majeed a civil engineering student was assigned odd jobs in Iraq and when he landed in the Hind camp in Iraq, due to his background he was told to supervise construction work.
the ISI’s remote control against India has promised separatists in Jammu and Kashmir a handsome pay hike if they disrupt the elections. The highest paid separatist in the Valley is Yasin Malik and Saeed who has been conversing on a regular basis has ensured of a major hike in pay if the elections to be held in the Valley are disrupted.
Conversation intercepted on November 18, 2014: Conversations intercepted as early as three days back by the Intelligence Bureau suggests that Saeed is still in Pakistan occupied Kashmir and has been in touch with the separatists in the Valley.
Areef Majeed has hit the headlines and there are several reports that have been posted regarding his state of mind. While there is no doubt that he was radicalized over the Internet and felt very strongly about the cause being espoused by the ISIS, the story of his return needs to be told correctly.
The Indian government has treaded very carefully and responsibly regarding the issue of the ISIS. Right from rescuing the nurses from Mosul to bringing Majeed back, overseen by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval have been dealt with a great deal of care.
The four youth from Maharashtra who had been radicalized on the internet before leaving for the ISIS were being monitored on a daily basis by the Indian Intelligence Bureau and during each of the conversations with their families they were weeping un-controllably seeking help to return.
In other words, Areef Majeed and the rest had literally begged to be brought back to India.
The National Investigating Agency has registered a case under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against Areef Majeed who returned to India from Iraq after joining the ISIS.
A First Information Report has also been filed. Areef Majeed who returned to India six months after he left to allegedly fight alongside the ISIS has a bullet injury on him which the agencies believe was sustained while he was trying.
