New Delhi: With the release of a four-minute song “We are jihadi” in Mandarin, terror outfit ISIS stamped their presence in China.

Indian government might have played down the incident of ISIS flags fluttering in Srinagar prior to Prime Minister’s historic address in November. But the release of the song in China definitely testifies the presence of ISIS influence in the Indian subcontinent.

Reportedly, a US-based Kashmiri was behind the hoisting of the ISIS flag. He also released a video revealing the atrocities on Muslims in Gaza. The release of the video was aimed at instilling the idea of ‘jihad’ among the youths of Kashmir.

Notably, Pakistani and Islamic state flags are waved by Hurriyat supporters every Friday which results in disrupting the peace and stability of the region.

However, the ISIS went a step further by releasing the song was to expand their influence in India’s biggest neighbouring nation, China. The song provoked the Muslims in China to take up arms and fight for their just rights. Analysts on Monday said the song, released on Sunday by the ISIS propaganda website “Jihadology”, attempted to strengthen its presence in the country.

The song said: “It’s our dream to die fighting on the battlefield”, “No power could stop us from moving forward”, “Pick up your weapons to revolt” and “The shameless enemy would panic”.

It might be mentioned that this was the first time such a song was released by the outfit to influence the Muslims in China. It was also the first instance when the outfit made a bold attempt to recruit from the country.

Notably, Muslims from China’s Xinjiang Uygur region migrated to Syria and Iraq via Turkey to join the ISIS. It was expected that these militants would return to China and carry out subversive activities in the region.

Amid heightened trade tensions between the US and China, tech giant Apple has joined hands with its suppliers to launch a $300 million clean energy fund in China.

The “China Clean Energy Fund” will invest in and develop clean-energy projects totalling more than 1 gigawatt of renewable energy in China, the equivalent of powering nearly 1 million homes, Apple said in a statement on Thursday.

“At Apple, we are proud to join with companies that are stepping up to address the climate challenge,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.

The Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant said 10 of its initial suppliers have come forward to jointly invest in the nearly $300 million fund over the next four years.

“We’re thrilled so many of our suppliers are participating in the fund and hope this model can be replicated globally to help businesses of all sizes make a significant positive impact on our planet,” Jackson said.
