“In the video, Abd Al-Rahman describes Hindus as ‘hateful’, and accuses them of perpetrating crimes like expulsion, imprisonment, rape and killing, and other insults, on Muslims….Abd Al-Rahman maintains that Muslims of India are suffering today under the occupation of Hindus.” Sound familiar? That’s because it is. Whether it’s Gaza or India, Burma or Bosnia, Islamic jihadist rhetoric is everywhere the same: Muslims are being unjustly treated under an illegal “occupation,” are striking out because of legitimate grievances, etc. Part of this is because, in the absence of a caliph, only defensive jihad is currently permitted under Sunni Islamic law. Thus grievances always have to be retailed in order to justify jihad attacks. But while the grievances always shift, the jihad always remains.
“Jihad group calls for attack of Indian targets worldwide,” Zee News, May 20, 2014:
Washington:A jihad group has released a 10-minute video that calls on key fundamental Islamic leaders to attacks Indian targets worldwide in retaliation for the alleged atrocities commited [sic] against Muslims in India.
According to a translation provided by the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor of the Washington DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the jihad group goes by the name of Ansar Al-Tawheed fi Bilad Al-Hind (The Supporters of Monotheism in the Land of India).
It quotes its leader, Abd Al-Rahman, as appealing in Arabic to Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad; Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri; the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, and Al-Qaeda’s leaders in Yemen (Nasser Al-Wuhaishi), in Somalia (Mukhtar Abu Al-Zubair), and in North Africa (Abu Mus’ab ‘Abd Al-Wudoud), to come forward to protect the Muslims of India.
In the video, Abd Al-Rahman describes Hindus as “hateful”, and accuses them of perpetrating crimes like expulsion, imprisonment, rape and killing, and other insults, on Muslims.
MEMRI further quotes Abd Al-Rahman as mentioning the Kashmir dispute and the 2002 massacre of Muslims in Gujarat in the video.
Abd Al-Rahman maintains that Muslims of India are suffering today under the occupation of Hindus.
The video concludes with Abd Al-Rahman seeking the support and advice of these Islamic leaders to attack Indian Government interests and its economic centers in India or abroad until the government collapses.
