    Till the sympathizers are in full cooperative mood with the radicals, it is going to be a difficult task to eliminate jihadis from free roaming and carrying subversive activities. But we can not remain idle.The time has come to take strong actions against person or habitats of that locality for rendering shelters.

      With the jobs in the Middle East dwindling the Muslim youths in Kerala are running out of options for any kind of jobs, they are the least educated in Kerala, the most stupid, the most cruel to animals and have too much time to do nothing, a perfect combination of youth, wickedness, lack of any opportunities to make a living and are inspired by Islam and its dirty ways.

          There are many "Peace" making schools, "Peace" Training colleges and "Peace Keeping" camps and umpteen number of JEM, LET and ISIS licensed recruiting agents in the State of Kerala, especially Malabar. The soil is very fertile for "PEACE" as it has been constantly nurtured by the sekular Left and and sekular Congress, an ally of the Muslim League. Both the leaders of the Left and the Congress licks the feet of influential mullas and moulanas of the region.

              NIA should look into the role playing by publications, newspapers in creating IS sympathizers/ their fundings also. Many naik likes are also operating here too undetected.

                  There is a clue about who, among Indian Muslims, are more likely to do such acts. It lies in the names.
