Wilayah of Hind, Islamic State is Alive and Kicking in Kashmir

Published

on

For the first time, the Islamic State (IS) has established a ‘province’ in India called Wilayah of Hind. In an official statement through its mouthpiece, Amaq News Agency, the notorious group says the new province will bolster its standing after the group was driven from its self-styled ‘caliphate’ in Iraq and Syria in April this year.

Moreover, IS also took responsibility for Sri Lanka’s Easter Sunday church bombings that left more than 250 people dead. The group claims to have inflicted casualties on Indian army soldiers in Amshipora in Kashmir’s Shopian district.

On Friday, the security forces had neutralized the group’s commander Ishfaq Ahmad Sofi. Before pledging allegiance to Islamic State, Sofi had been involved in several militant groups in Kashmir for more than a decade.

According to a military official, the militant was suspected of several grenade attacks on security forces in the region. He said Sofi would have been the only militant left in Kashmir with IS ties. A police spokesman said it was a clean operation and no collateral damage took place during the exchange of fire.
