isisnew-03-1464894140Islamic State group wants Kashmir under its caliphate and not under Pakistan, said a media report today.

The Times of India, quoting from the web chats of IS members from different countries, including India, that are part of a charge-sheet filed by the NIA against Indian Oil assistant manager Mohammad Sirajuddin, reported that the group believes in Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s caliphate as the final arbiter of Kashmir’s fate.

“In one of the chats, Jundhulla Minaa, a UAE-based IS operative who Sirajuddin grew close to, claimed: “Kashmir is Kashmir IS… Kashmir will be Islamic State… Inshallah!!”,” reported the newspaper.

Sirajuddin felt that IS, if it chooses to launch a ‘Quest for caliphate’ in Kashmir, will have two battle fronts — the “Indian Kuffar (apostate) Army” and the “Pakistani Jehadi groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba, JeM and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen etc.” as these outfits will never accept a merger with IS as “their foundation is based on nationalism and patriotism”.

The charge-sheet also mentions that IS members celebrated the death of VHP leader Ashok Singhal on November 17, 2005. “While sharing the news of the death, Sirajuddin commented ‘Good News’…,” it says.
