According to new reports, ISIS has declared its plans of carrying out guerrilla attacks on India from Pakistan and Bangladesh. The organisation hopes to take help from terror groups in the two countries.

In an interview given to Dabiq, the online ISIS magazine, the ‘amir’ of ISIS members in Bangladesh, Shayk Abu Ibrahim al-Hanif revealed these plans. Hanif claims their plans include wiping out Hindus and imposing Sharia law in India.


Ibrahim al-Hanif mentions taking help from militant Islamist group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Wilayat Khurasan, along with local mujahideens to carry out attacks in India, reports Hindustan Times.

Hanif further mentions that their main target would be Hindus since they are the reason behind the trouble Muslims are facing in India. He further went ahead to reveal his plans regarding toppling Sheikh Hasina’s government in Bangladesh.

Bengal is located on the eastern side of India, whereas Wilayat Khurasan is located on its western side. Thus, having a strong jihad base in Bengal will facilitate performing guerrilla attacks inside India simultaneously from both sides and facilitate creating a condition of tawahhush (fear and chaos) in India along with the help of the existing local mujahidin there… This would allow IS fighters to enter with a conventional army and completely liberate the region from the mushrikin (disbelievers), after first getting rid of the ‘Pakistani’ and ‘Afghani’ regimes.
