May 20, 2016: A 22-minute video released on Friday has sounded alarm in the Indian subcontinent with a well known Indian face of Abu Amir al-Hindi alias Fahad Shaikh of Maharashtra among the group declaring an attack on India in the near future.

As the Indian Intelligence services battle with already established terror groups like the Indian Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba, this acts as a deadly overcast looming over the region. The intelligence has been trying to trace the exact number of fighters recruited by the ISIS from the country and till now, 23 remains the identified number.

“In this land you get to have hatred for the kuffar (disbelievers). In this land you get to perform jihad,” said an Indian fighter identified as Abu Salman al-Hindi, in the video. While the IS fighters are seen to be mocking Indian Muslims for their living in harmony with a majority Hindu population, they are also seen to be urging them to participate in the bigger cause of ‘jihad’ by supporting the organization.

The chilling words come at a time when increasing influence of the fighters is seen to be creating ripples in Bangladesh. Local terrorist factions connected to the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) are reportedly seeking intervention from the jihadist force to launch “guerrilla attacks inside India” with the help of recruits in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Incidentally, a report by the Indian intelligence marks a trend shift in the subcontinent as more and more radicalized Muslim youth who earlier joined Lashkar-e-Taiba and Taliban, are now gravitating towards their new jihadist-leaning favourite – the Islamic State. “If IS does strengthen its grip and ‘liberates’ new territories, its following among Indian youth may pose a threat,” warned a senior official.

The video goes on to inform that its (ISIS’) Indian members would be returning to avenge the demolition of Babri and the Godhra riots. A section of the film also mentions Kashmir. With a severe warning that Hindus are on a mission to convert the Indian Muslims, the video ends on an oath by its Indian recruits who swear allegiance to the organization and echo that they would return and carry out attacks in the country.

Triple Talaq Now Banned In India

While most Hindu personal laws have been overhauled and codified over the years, Muslim laws have been left to religious authorities and left largely untouched.

India’s government on Wednesday approved an ordinance to implement a top court ruling striking down the Muslim practice that allows men to instantly divorce.

The government decision came after it failed to get approval of Parliament a year after the court ruled that the practice of triple “talaq” violated the constitutional rights of Muslim women.

Most of the 170 million Muslims in India are Sunnis governed by the Muslim Personal Law for family matters and disputes. The laws include allowing men to divorce by simply uttering the Arabic word “talaq,” or divorce, three times — and not necessarily consecutively, but at any time, and by any medium, including telephone, text message or social media post.

The government will have another six months to get Parliament’s approval for the ordinance to become law. But in the meantime, suspects can be prosecuted using the ordinance.

Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that nearly 22 countries, including neighboring Pakistan and Bangladesh, have banned the practice and appealed to the opposition to approve the Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill.

India’s Muslim Law Board had told the court that while they considered the practice wrong, they opposed any court intervention and asked that the matter be left to the community. But several progressive Muslim activists decried the law board’s position.

After the Supreme Court verdict, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government introduced a bill criminalizing the practice and it was approved in December by the lower house of Parliament, where his party commands a majority. But it couldn’t get the approval of the upper house, where the opposition controls the majority of seats.

The main opposition Congress party is opposing a three-year prison sentence for the offenders and wants a parliamentary committee to discuss the issue to reach a consensus. It favors a lesser sentence.
