Maharashtra ISIS member Fahad Sheikh comments on Dadri lynch mob incident

The killing of 50-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq in Bishara village of Dadri near Delhi on the alleged rumour of eating and storing beef has evoked   responses from Indian jihadists from the Islamic State (IS/Daesh) and Al Qaeda in Syria (Jabhat al Nusra).


In his tweets on October 1, Magnet Gas account -- supposedly run by Fahad Sheikh, one of the four youth from Kalyan to join the militant group ISIS-- has posted a message to Indian Muslims promising revenge by ISIS.

The first tweet, with the hashtag #Revengesoon, said :

"while Hindus in india killed a Muslim man on beef eating rumour .Coconut Muslim are arranging peace conference."

``We love you all, even if you hates us. Soon IS will take the revenge of Gujarat, Kashmir, Muzaffarnagar.''
                                           - Fahad Sheikh,
                                             Indian member of ISIS
                         
In another tweet, he made reference to the recent incident of killing followed after the beef eating rumor with the hashtag revenge soon. The account was suspended after these tweets but has resurfaced again.

Earlier, Maulana Asim Umar, the Indian born leader of Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) wrote in the English language magazine of the terror group Resurgence, of Muslims being suppressed under Hindu supremacy, the communal riots like the Gujarat pogrom, the violence in Assam and the Muzaffarnagar riots calling on the Muslim community to incite a jihad against the Indian establishment. There is no presence of Al Qaeda or ISIS in India, however around 23 Indians have enlisted on the ranks and files of ISIS.

The other Indian jihadi belonged to rival organisation Jabhat al Nusra, Al Qaeda's official wing in Syria. A former journalist from Palakkad, Kerala, Abu Thahir commented on Facebook :

In the name of eating beef your Muslim brother has been killed. What about you ? You enjoyed reading in the newspaper !...''
                                 - Abu Thahir,
                                   Keralite member of Al Nusra

Abu Thahir's Facebook profile was intermittently active in the months of September and October. Writing under the name "Abu Hassan," his Facebook profile is currently deactivated.

Thahir's profile is currently deactivated.


"Haindava Keralam", a right Hindu group has interesting comments about him in an article posted about him in June 2015. The former journalist has compared Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to embattled Syrian president Bashar Al Assad in a Facebook post.
