NEW DELHI, November 6. /TASS/. Al-Qaeda is training Indian Mujahideen terrorist group militants on the territory of Afghanistan and Pakistan, The Hindustan Times said quoting sources in Indian intelligence bodies.
India’s Prime Minister says that Muslims living in India will not support al-Qaeda terrorists.
According to the outle,t the source in India’s intelligence said that they managed to get information on a plot to kidnap foreign citizens and to make Syria and Iraq, where violent terrorist attacks happen regularly, out of India. He said India’s intelligence service managed to tap conversations between al-Qaeda and Indian Mujahideen terrorist group members as well as to question suspects. It has been found out that two terrorist organizations are going to carry out terrorist atatcks in the region.
They are trying to ascertain how the al-Qaeda and the Islamic State cooperate with local extremist groups. It is particularly topical when American troops are being withdrawn from Afghanistan, as the Executive of National Investigation Agency in India, Sharad Kumar, said.
In a video address on 3 September, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri declared the creation of a cell of the terrorist organization in South Asia and promised to release the Muslims of Burma, Bangladesh and Indian states Assam, Gujarat and Jammu and Kashmir, from injustice and oppression and urged all Muslims of India to unite in the name of faith.
There were no al-Qaeda units in the republic, but Lashkar-e-Taiba, Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami and Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen terrorist groups that carried out attacks on the Indian subcontinent were reported to be linked to it.
About 175 milion Muslims live in India, comprising about 15% of the country’s population.
