We condemn Al-Qaeda's call for Jihad in India

And doubt it is a conspiracy to create communal tensions and division in the Indian Society.

New Delhi (4 September 2014): US media and intelligence agencies said today that al-Qaeda has established a new branch to wage "jihad" in India, "return the Islamic rule" and impose sharia in the Indian sub-continent. We condemn the brain behind the news. As Muslims we also condemn the terror laced ideology of Al-Zawahiri and his satanic clan. We also warn remain away from India, the homeland of 20 Crore Muslims.

The unconfirmed circulated by US media says that creation of a group "Qaedat al-Jihad in the Indian Subcontinent" was announced by As Sahab, al-Qaeda's official media outlet, in a lengthy video posted on social media outlets including You Tube.  Government of India has alerted security agencies and IB is investigating authenticity of the news. We hope untainted investigation and to take US media reports on their face value.

Indian Muslim youth need to be doubly vigilant otherwise they may be trapped. Any doubt on their activity may land them behind the bars for years and years. Do not open doubtful messages and never respond to the calls of unidentified persons.

Be aware, this may be a well-planned conspiracy also to create trouble and communal divisions in Indian society before upcoming by elections and assembly elections especially in J&K, Maharashtra and also in Jharkhand where efforts are being made to unleash communal passions and polarize the electorate.
