    The video ends with him being killed in a fight. The video which was made by Al Isabah Media. As scroll.in reported, their page on Facebook has over 2800 likes. The video has been translated into Tamil as well as Urdu in addition to the Hindi subtitles in the videos. ISIS leader Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi's video earlier has also been translated to Hindi and in a message published last month he has also called on Muslims from India to come and fight for the dignity they deserve.

    ISIS will be a force to be reckoned with in the future. It is already the richest Jihadi organization in the world by far, and they seemed to have much larger/grander plans for the world than anyone has had before.

    jihadi group posts photo, online tribute to Mumbai youth ‘killed’ in Iraq

    Arif, an engineering student, was one of the four men from Thane who were believed to have joined Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
    Tweet This

    Two days after Kalyan youth Arif Ejaz Majeed was reported killed fighting alongside Islamist insurgents in Iraq, the Indian jihadist group Ansar ul-Tawhid has issued an online tribute to the 23-year-old engineering student, hailing his “martyrdom”.

    In the Ansar al-Tawhid eulogy, addressed to “those who are searching for paradise”, Arif is shown dressed in an Arab kaffiyeh, holding an assault rifle. The image, the first of Arif from the battlefield, was posted online on Twitter accounts and online fora linked to the Ansar ul-Tawhid.
    The picture identifies Arif by a nom de guerre, describing him as “Shaheed Arif Majeed (Abu Ali al-Hindi) Rahmat Allah [may God’s mercy be upon him]”.

    The Urdu-language poetic tribute says: “We gave meaning to the ritual of love [for God], though it hurt our hearts and cost us our lives; our sacrifice adds glory to the assembly of martyrs, attained after sacrificing many dreams.”

    Arif was one of four youths in their 20s from the same neighbourhood of Maharashtra’s Thane district who were believed to have joined the Islamic State (formerly the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS), the Islamist group that has conquered large parts of Syria and Iraq.

    The Ansar ul-Tawhid has been the most active of Indian jihadi groups online, posting videos of its cadres training in Pakistan’s North Waziristan and in southern Afghanistan. In recent weeks, the organisation has released Tamil, Hindi and Urdu translations of ISIS leader Ibrahim Awwad al-Badri’s claims of being the caliph of all Muslims.

    Intelligence sources in New Delhi told The Indian Express that the picture on the eulogy bears out speculation that the Thane men had made contact with the Ansar ul-Tawhid, a hardline faction that broke with the Indian Mujahideen (IM), and whose cadres are now believed to be training with jihadists in the Afghanistan-Pakistan borderlands.

    Searches of computers seized by investigators from the homes of the youths have indicated that they often visited forums linked to the IM and the Ansar ul-Tawhid, the sources said. However, it remained unclear whether the men had made contact with the Ansar ul-Tawhid before or after leaving for Iraq.

    A Facebook account believed to have belonged to Arif Majeed has a flag of the Islamic State on its profile page, posters propounding the caliphate, and pictures that suggest the ummah has been asleep even as the community bleeds. The last post was on March 27, quoting one Abu Walid: “All those clothes in your cupboard and you don’t get to choose what to wear in the grave.”

    Dr Ejaz Badruddin Majeed, Arif’s father, declined to comment on the appearance of his son’s picture on a jihadi forum. Close friends of the family said on Friday, “We have lost our son. What bigger loss could we have faced? It is a closed chapter for us now.”

    Earlier this month, Ansar ul-Tawhid posted on its Twitter handle a tribute to Anwer Bhatkal, a distant relative of alleged Indian Mujahideen founder Riyaz Bhatkal, who it said had “attained martyrdom” in the Afghan jihad.

    The organisation’s websites and online discussion boards have carried several appeals to Indian Muslims to join the Islamic State in Syria, urging them to train for an eventual insurgency in India.
    In recent weeks, the Ansar ul-Tawhid has carried several texts and videos on the Islamic State’s ideology and military campaign, translated into Indian languages. Intelligence officials believe the organisation’s campaign, electrified by the Islamic State’s success against militarily superior forces, sees it as a patron of future jihadist operations in India.

    The Indian Express has through July and August been the first to publish a series of reports on the Kalyan men, the killing of Anwer Bhatkal, the operational plans of the Ansar ul-Tawhid, and the shadowy lines that seem to connect the Indian Mujahideen with jihadis in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

    Shia youth ‘who fought ISIS’ gets grand welcome home in Lucknow

    Shia youth ‘who fought ISIS’ gets grand welcome home in Lucknow



    A PhD student in Shia theology who claims to be the only Indian to have fought against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS, or IS) was on Sunday given a rousing welcome by the Shia community here on his return home.

    Maulana Syed Abbas Nasir Saeed Abqati, 28, the son of prominent Shia cleric Maulana Agha Roohi, was studying at Najaf University in July when clashes with the ISIS broke out in Iraq. He claims to have enrolled for the force comprising civilians and others that was trained by the Iraqi forces and fought the ISIS for one month.

    Felicitated at a function at Shia College on Nakhas road here, Abqati said he would go back after three months.

    Thousands of Shia youths in Lucknow alone had earlier registered themselves as ‘razakars (volunteers)’, seeking to go to Iraq to fight the ISIS, but were denied permission by the government.

    A campaign by Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawwad to send youths to Iraq as volunteers had been severely criticised by Sunni clerics, particularly Syed Ahmed Bukhari, the Shahi Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid. The news of Abqati’s “feats” in Iraq though had reached home and been celebrated by Shias.

    Abqati claimed that Iraqi Army regulars, the Sarai Salam army of influential Iraqi leader Muqtada al-Sadr, civilians and people from several countries had been selected to set up an “anti-terrorism squad” and guard vulnerable locations.

    “I was given one-month military training by Iraqi army regulars. There were people from several other countries, whose identity I cannot reveal. I was the only Indian and after the training we were sent to Samarra (around 125 km from Baghdad) to defend holy shrines during Ramzan,” Abqati told The Indian Express.

    “It crossed my mind that some legalities may be involved in me taking part in a military exercise involving a foreign country. But when your house is under attack, you will not run to seek permission from the government. You will first defend yourself. The fatwas by various clerics also become immaterial when your life is in peril,” Abqati said.
    Slamming ISIS for calling itself Muslim but killing innocent people, he said at the felicitation: “Children are being slaughtered, women captured and sold in the slave market. People who do not embrace Islam are being killed. There is even some mercy in killing, but ISIS are stone-hearted people who are against humanity.”

    Talking about his own experience, Abqati said: “At times there was gunfire. We defended the city too and ISIS was pushed back. We held our fort for the whole of Ramzan. Once there was replenishment, I returned.”

    He was hopeful of returning to the warfront, the young cleric said. “Now I am trained and there are lots of secrets which cannot be shared. If there is any need, I will again take up arms.”

    Indian jihadist ‘kills 55 for ISIS, quits because no pay’

    An Islamic State recruit from Greater Mumbai was intercepted in Turkey, and then
    interrogated and arrested by India’s secret service. Suspected of killing up to
    55 people, he allegedly left because they didn’t pay enough, India’s media
    reported.

    India’s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), National Investigation Agency (NIA) and
    Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials have all arrived in Istanbul to take Kalyan
    city native Areeb Majeed into custody, Mid-Day quoted a senior airport official
    as saying.

    Following an eight-hour interrogation, authorities took the suspect into NIA
    custody. Majeed appeared in court on Saturday, where the judge decided that he
    will remain in NIA custody until December 8.

    There are conflicting reports as to how Majeed got to the Islamic State’s (IS,
    formerly ISIS or ISIL) camp in Iraq and what kind of attacks he was involved
    in.

    “He is suspected to have killed around 55 people as part of ISIS and he
    returned because he was not paid by the terrorist group,” a senior IB
    official told Mid-Day.

    Other media reports suggest the opposite. Citing other anonymous sources, the
    Hindustan Times said the IS allegedly gave Majeed $2,000 to cover treatment for
    injuries received during fighting in Iraq. If that is the truth, local
    authorities suspect that the Islamic State planned Majeed’s homecoming to India
    for some purpose.

    “During combat, he was shot in the chest while a second bullet grazed him.
    When a medical facility where he was being treated was destroyed in an air
    raid, he crossed over to Turkey,” an unnamed central counter-terror
    officer said. Majeed then contacted his family to discuss his return home.

    “We have reason to suspect what Majeed has told us so far. Not only was he
    given money by IS fighters, he was allowed to leave territory controlled by
    them. It is quite possible he may have contacted his father on their
    instructions. We need to verify and re-verify all his claims. That’s why the
    NIA was allowed to register a case against him,” the official said.

    ‘How I joined ISIS’

    The 23-year-old ended up fighting for the Islamic State after visiting “more
    than 20,000” jihadi websites while living in Kalyan, DNAIndia reported. The
    outlet suggested that after this wild jihad-surf the youngster became
    self-radicalized.

    Majeed,along with three friends, decided to travel to Iraq to join the radical
    Islamist group.

    “Majeed has told his interrogators the IS does all its recruitment online.
    Its spotters visit jihadi websites and contact possible candidates through
    social media. That was how he was spotted,” the Hindustan Times said,
    quoting another officer.

    One of the IS contacts paid for their travel, which was reportedly arranged
    under the cover of a pilgrimage tour to Iraq.

    The four young men arrived in Baghdad at the end of May. They were instructed
    to separate from their tour group and take a taxi to Fallujah, which is close
    to the current IS stronghold in Mosul.

    Another IS contact helped the recruits reach a camp, where they were
    brainwashed about the group’s ideology, media reports quoted security officials
    as saying.

    Afterwards, they were moved to an Islamic State training camp, where all four
    were taught how to use AK-47s and explosives.
    While still quite confusing and sketchy, Majeed’s story may soon have
    interesting developments, as his three other friends were also due to travel
    back to India in the next couple of days, according to DNAIndia.

    ‘IS recruiting Indian youth online’

    Indian NIA books Majeed, an Indian student recruited and trained by IS, flown to India by Indian intelligence agencies

    Areeb Majeed, an arrested Mumbai student-turned-Islamic State (IS) fighter, was given $2,000 by the terrorist group to get himself treated after being injured in combat, Indian media reported on Sunday.

    “We have reason to suspect what Majeed has told us so far. Not only was he given money by IS fighters, he was allowed to leave the territory controlled by IS. It is quite possible he may have contacted his father on their instructions. We need to verify and re-verify all his claims. That’s why the (Indian) National Investigation Agency (NIA) was allowed to register a case against him,” said a central counter-terror officer requesting anonymity.

    The officer added that it was also possible that Majeed may have been given a task in India by IS.

    A day after he was flown home from Turkey by NIA and Indian intelligence officials, the 22-year old Majeed was produced in a Mumbai court on Saturday and remanded in the NIA’s custody till December 8. He has been booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (conspiring and preparing for terror activities) and Section 125 of the Indian Penal Code (waging war against an Asiatic power that is in alliance with the Indian government).

    “Majeed has told his interrogators the IS does all its recruitment online. Its spotters visit jihadi websites and contact possible candidates through social media. That was how he was spotted,” another officer reportedly said.

    Majeed travelled with three friends – Shaheen Tanki, Fahad Sheikh and Aman Tandel, all from India’s Maharashtra’s Kalyan town – to Iraq earlier this year in May on the pretext of a pilgrimage and was taken to the IS stronghold of al-Raqqa, the officer said. All four were trained in handling weapons like AK-47 and explosives.

    “During combat, he was shot in the chest while a second bullet grazed him. When a medical facility where he was being treated was destroyed in an air raid, he crossed over to Turkey with other IS cadre,” the official said.

    Majeed then got in touch with his father, saying he wanted to come back. He landed in Mumbai on Friday under NIA escort. Maharashtra Police sources said he was still highly indoctrinated and had told his interrogators that he believed the IS’ actions were justified.

    Based on his interrogation, the NIA is also looking into a travel firm that facilitated the four men’s trip, agency sources said, adding that the firm – with a presence in many Indian cities — helped with visa arrangements. NIA prosecutor Geeta Godambe said the agency wanted to unearth the entire conspiracy.

    In court, Majeed, dressed in a dark brown Pathan suit, was asked by the judge why he had not hired a lawyer. “I was in NIA custody and did not get the time to hire a lawyer,” he answered.

    Addressing a conference of police chiefs from across the country in the Assamese capital, Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh touched on the threat from IS, saying, “Some Indian youths have been attracted to IS. We cannot take it lightly.”

    Indian police arrest 'jihadi tweeter' said to be behind pro-IS tweets

    BANGALORE: Indian police on Saturday arrested a 24-year-old executive believed to be the handler of an influential Twitter account supporting the Islamic State group, officials said.

    Mehdi Masroor Biswas, employed with an Indian food conglomerate in the southern city of Bangalore, is alleged to be the handler of the Twitter account [MENTION=4401]sha[/MENTION]miWitness.

    The account had 17,700 followers, including many foreign fighters, until it was shut down following a report by Britain's Channel 4 News on Thursday.

    Tweets from [MENTION=4401]sha[/MENTION]miWitness contained jihadist propaganda as well as information for would-be recruits and messages praising fallen fighters as martyrs.

    “He has been taken into custody,” police director general L.R. Pachuau told AFP.

    Police raided his house in an upscale suburb of Bangalore early Saturday and seized “incriminating documents, Islamic literature and many photos”, Pachuau said.

    Pachuau added that details of his arrest would be revealed at a news conference later Saturday.

    The Channel 4 report quoted Biswas as saying that he had personally not joined IS ranks in Iraq and Syria because his family was financially dependent on him.

    “If I had a chance to leave everything and join them I might have,” he was quoted as saying.

    However, in an interview to the Indian Express newspaper published Saturday Biswas said his claims to Channel 4 were meant to get the television reporter off his back.

    “When Channel 4 called me first and asked if [MENTION=4401]sha[/MENTION]miWitness was my Twitter handle, I did not oppose it... my outright rejection would not have convinced them. I therefore decided to admit that I was indeed [MENTION=4401]sha[/MENTION]miWitness in the hope that they would not air the programme,” Biswas told the daily.

    The Press Trust of India news agency said Biswas was likely to be charged with cyber terrorism and sentenced to life imprisonment.

    The IS militant group has made extensive use of social media for propaganda and recruitment, as well as for disseminating grisly execution videos.
