The Islamic State has vowed to expand its fight to India, citing prophecies that refer to a global war. The threat is made in a new manifesto — Black Flags from the Islamic State — released online on jihadist platforms Tuesday.
“The Islamic State would now expand beyond Iraq and Syria,” states the manifesto. “It would now expand into… India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan (and several other countries).”

In a first, the organisation also offers an analysis of the political situation in India. It notes that “a movement of Hindus is growing who kill Muslims who eat beef. The people who fund these organisations want to grow a huge following of Islam-haters who can turn into potential recruits for future wars in their countries”.

It states that “President Narender Modi (sic) is a right-wing Hindu nationalist who worships weapons and is preparing his people for a future war against Muslims”.

“They have a political wing for the propaganda to get more recruits, and armed militia who can start a terror campaign against their number 1 enemy — the Muslims,” it states.

Future Islamic State battles, it claims, “will rage in every country, and this is why there is (sic) over one-and-a-half billion Muslims in the world”.

“They will fight the New World Order in every land and every place. The peak of this war against the New World Order will be the battle against al-Dajjal (the Antichrist),” it states.

“You will be sucked into the New World Order if you stay in your comfort zone and accept submission to the oppressors, or you can emigrate and fight to defend your religion and your life,” it states.

In the manifesto, the Islamic State describes its theory of how insurgencies against regimes can be developed, and gives supporters detailed instructions on how to operate covert cells, build explosives, and maintain operational secrecy to defeat security service surveillance.

The Islamic State’s strategy, the manifesto states, is to “do hit and run tactics and then go into hiding so (the world) can waste millions or billions of Euros on 100,000-plus police, investigators, and it can shut down its major cities and lose its money”.

It claims that the shutdown after the Paris terror attack cost Belgium 53 million Euros per day. “For what,” it asks. “To hunt 20 people who have basic AK-47 rifles which cost a few thousand dollars maximum.”

Future attacks, it states, “will make groups in the West attack Islam and Muslims in Europe, forcing Muslims in the West to pick up weapons and start a fight to defend themselves”.

The key to building successful covert cells, it states, is recruiting individuals whose commitment can be vouched for, and not using electronic devices.

Fugitive Paris attack mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud, it states, did not use phones or e-mail to communicate with other members of the cell, which carried out the plot.

        It is nowhere written in the book of islam to kill innocent people. These people call themselves a muslim but actually they just want to acquire money and land, in the name of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and truth, thier action seems they're nowhere concerned with Islam. May Allah show u ppl right path, n bring u back in islam.

                Until or unless you will be educated, anyone will come and teach you anything on the name of religion. Please be educated, do comparative study of religion than blindly having faith in your father and gfather religion. Quran teach you to ask for proof if someone say something before following it, what more you want to differentiate write and wrong.

                      Are they now trying say that this all came in effect after new govt came in power? This is how congress works. Divide and rule. First they divided Hindus and Muslims and labeled themselves as secular so that they can label bJP as non secular. Now that they failed miserably in 2014, this is their ploy to divide Hindus. If a learned man reads all what vk Singh said it will be clear to you why the issue was made a propaa- this helped congress and others in bihar. Easy money (votes) earned all these 65 plus easy come easy go!

                                Dear muslim fellows, it is fact that 99% terriorists are purely muslims. unfortunetly disunity of nonmuslims is serious concern for Hindustan. It is reality that if isis try to spread violence in india, ultimately Indian muslims will under the cover of doubt. In this concern Hindus have to unite again as united in Loksabha election 2014 and elected Narendra Modi with huge margin. So filthy isis dont try to sneak in india otherwise u will be destro totally by the hands of Hindus.

                                    The threat of Islam to INDIA is nothing new it is happening since mohammed dia will over come any threat /war eventually.But the question remains whether the world will ever be free from killing of innocents bloodshed in the name of jehad ?My answer is NO.Because nobody dare to go to the roots of problem.Problem lies in the doctrine of intolerence which every terrorists follow.

                                      Dear Tide UK, you are trying to tell us what iosla is about but we, the w world are watching what the people who believe in Islam are doing. You are only brain washed people , have no thought. If you have dare then tell the world what is your reaction to the terror and brutal agenda if ISIL and what is link to Islam - the teachings of Quran and Hadis.

                                        Cowards, that is what is expected from them. This has been their strategy from the beginning to hit and run or get killed. Butchered is the word for these animals.

                                          It delves into a hollow claim only. I am flustered that the report does not clearly cite the source. it is not easy at all for ISIL to expand into India. not to speak of expansion, even ISIL has no presence at all in India. India should not be worried at all but yest it must remain alert to thwart such threat. To spook countries across the world has been ISIL' propaa tactics that it uses to browbeat the people. the new fashion is that it claims the responsibility of every attack happening across the world that can be easily exploited by other rejectionist forces across the world. I don't buy the argument that ISIL can make a safe inroad into India.

                                            Researchers do not have to look root cause for violence connected by muslims here and there. The Islamic philosophy is very intolerant and does not believe in coexistence with any body having different point of view. It has various shades like AL-Quaeda, AL-Shabab, Boko Haram, Taliban, ISIS, Let, JuD, Indian Mujahideen, SIMI, etc. and operates as per the book called Quran (see below): Qur'an 2:191 “Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.”Qur'an 9:123 “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.”Qur'an 9:5 “When opportunity arises kill the infidels wherever you catch them.
