A chilling video in Malayalam has surfaced on Telegram in which an ISIS recruit from Kerala is heard planning terror attacks on crowds thronging Indian festival events like Kumbh Mela and Thirssur Pooram. Rashid Abdullah, the chief of the module in Kasargod, Kerala can be discovered in a 10-minute audio clip, liberally quotes from the Quran with an authentic Arabic pronunciation.
“You use your intellect. Poison them in food. Use trucks. Drive over them at Thirssur pooram or at Maha Kumbh Mela. IS Mujahideen are doing it in several parts of the world.”
“In Las Vegas, one of our supporters killed many people at a music concert. At least you should try to derail a train. Or use a knife.”
The audio clip has been transmitted over Telegram Messenger from Afghanistan and has surfaced at the same time when Kerala police have said that about 100 people from the state are suspected to have joined the Islamic State.
The clip further adds: “If you are not able to do that despite your prayers and efforts, then you should financially support Daulatul Islam and Islamic State.”
“Many are trying to finish IS and khilafat. We have been reduced to nothing in many parts. But, Daultaul Islam is still active and we will fight until the last man.”
