Islamic State Claims its Province in Shopian, Kashmirby Emily Blunt Digital Marketing Service Provider
SRINAGAR- Islamic State’s activities are growing in Kashmir recently. After the recent clash between security forces and a group of militants in Kashmir, the Islamic State for the first time claimed a province. The News agency of IS- Amaq News which brings the Latest Muslims News in India to induce Kashmiri Muslims announced, that their new province is called “Waliyah of Hind”.
Meanwhile, the clash between Indian security forces and the militants of Kashmir occurred in the town of Amshipora in the Shopian district of Kashmir. This clash resulted in Indian Army killing one of one militant which Indian Army claimed had ties with the group.
Ishfaq Ahmad Sofi, the militant was involved in various militant groups in Kashmir for the last one decade. Moreover, he in an interview to a magazine in Srinagar accepted his involvement with IS.
IS’s Attempt at Strengthening its Ground in Kashmir
It appears that this is an attempt by the militant group to strengthen its standing in the region. The group which was at one time controlling thousands of miles of territory in Syria and Iraq has been unable to withstand the Indian Armed Forces in Kashmir lately.
In the past, IS has been unable to strengthen its group in India but the recent attacks at Sri Lanka which killed more than 250 people on Easter proves to be a threat to Indian people as well. We at Carvandaily believe that this Latest News on Indian-Muslims is just a stunt to mobilize Muslim men in Kashmir to join its group.
The director of the SITE Intel group which tracks Islamic terrorists said that the announcement of establishing a province should be taken seriously. But we think that the intelligence need to completely vanish the group in the region which many believe has come to an end with the killing of Ishfaq.
However, many strategists in the region believe that it might be supported have several political groups and people in India which work for Pakistan and have strong influence in Kashmir like Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Geelani.
This might not look threatening but keeping at check at such parties and groups will prevent any such attacks by the so called “Waliyah of Hind” rulers. A spokesperson from the Home Ministry meanwhile did not respond to our request for comment on this incident.
