The American magazine ‘Foreign Policy’ has exposed the links between India and terrorists before the world in its article “Indians and Central Asians are the new face of the Islamic State.” According to the article, an increasing number of Indian and Central Asian links to plots outside their regions is dangerous for the neighbouring countries.
In India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has advanced a series of policies promoting a Hindu nationalist narrative openly hostile toward Muslims. For Indians, the international role has been more limited, with Indians for the most part appearing in attacks in Afghanistan and in limited numbers on the battlefield in Syria, it added.
The threat emerged most recently with the attack by the Islamic State in Khorasan Province on Jalalabad prison in early August. It follows the earlier decision by ISKP to use an Indian fighter to attack a Sikh gurdwara—a place of worship—in Kabul, the article stated.–AFP
