Rajnath dismisses reports of ISIS presence in Kashmir

Tuesday, 21 November 2017 | PTI | VARANASI

Dismissing reports of the Islamic State (ISIS) gaining a foothold in Kashmir, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday that Indian Muslims would never allow terrorist outfits such as ISIS to have a base in the country.

Singh also said he has complete faith in the Indian youth that they would not let IS misled them. "Any Indian Muslim who believes in Islam would not allow any opportunity to the Islamic State to have a base in the country," the Union home minister said.

His remarks came in wake of claims that the global terror outfit was involved in an attack on security forces in Srinagar on November 17 in which a terrorist, Mugees, was killed and a sub-inspector, Imran Tak, lost his life.

The terrorist group claimed the attack through its propaganda news agency, 'Amaq'. Photographs of Mugees with the IS flag had surfaced on the social media. Even his body was wrapped in the flag of the banned terror group during funeral.

Singh urged the young men, who live near the India- Pakistan border and who have been misled into joining terrorist groups, to return to the mainstream, saying proper assistance would be provided to them.
