Amidst claims by the Kerala police that at least 100 from the state have joined the Islamic State, a new audio clip calling for attacks on Thrissur pooram and Kumbh Mela has surfaced.
The audio clip in Malayalam was circulated on the Telegram group in which an operative calls for war on India. The voice in the 10 minute clip is that Rashid Abdullah, the leader of the ISIS module in Kasargod.
In the clip, apart from calling for attacks, it also advises Muslims to migrate from Darul Kufr to Darul Islam. Further, it says that if it not possible to do that, then people must offer financial assistance to Daulatul Islam and the Islamic State.
Further the clip gives advise on how to carry out the attacks at Thrissur pooram and Kumbh Mela. First go and poison the food, then use trucks to drive them over. Do it like the way, the ISIS fighters across the world are doing it, the clip also advises.
One of supporters killed many at a music concert. Here at least one of us must try to derail a train or use a knife in an attack, the clip also says. Even if they try to end us, they will not succeed. We may suffer losses, but Daulat Islam will always ben active and we will fight till our deaths, the clip further states.
