The Indian wing of terror outfit al-Qaeda has mentioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi in its latest video message. Asim Umar, the Indian-born head of Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) has said that there is a war going on against Muslims through World Bank and IMF policies, Charlie Hebdo’s writings, UN charter, sermons by Muftis and Narendra Modi’s words.
The Indian intelligence agencies are analyzing the authenticity of the video titled ‘From France to Bangladesh: The Dust Will Never Settle Down’.
The group also claimed responsibility for killing several secular writers and intellectuals in Bangladesh and Pakistan, including prominent American blogger Avijit Roy who was hacked to death in Dhaka on February 27.
“Like the companions of the Prophet who defended him with their lives, the mujahideen of al-Qaeda have dispatched to hell many who blasphemed against God, and insulted the Prophet,” Umar was quoted as having said in the video.
The group also named Bangladeshi intellectual Ahmad Rajiob Haidar, Rajshahi University scholar AKM Shaiful Islam and Karachi University scholar Shakeel Auj as its victims.
