Social media accounts linked to known supporters of the Islamic State (IS) on Monday posted images of two boats carrying armed IS fighters from the latest IS nasheed video — a video with English subtitles accompanied by a chant — released by its media wing, Al Hayat Media, claiming that it showed “a boatful of Indians”.

They claimed that one of the men was Abu Turab al Hindi, Indian Mujahideen commander Muhammad “Bada” Sajid who was killed in Syria.

The accounts also posted a separate image from the latest nasheed video of a purported Indian in the ranks of the IS, identifying him as Abu Qaqa al Hindi.

“Do any one recognized anything? The latest hayat media nasheed have a boatful of Indians,” tweeted @cihadci2 at 12:27 pm on Monday.

This was accompanied by an image from the video of about a dozen IS fighters carrying assault rifles and an IS flag on two adjacent boats out on sea.

“They sold themselves and their belongings to their master,” says the English subtitle.

The account is believed to be operated by Fahad Shaikh, one of the four youths from Thane who reportedly joined the IS in May last year. “Among them is the lion leader of former Indian Mujahideen group who was ighemasi in Kobane. Abu Turaab al hindi,” said another tweet.

Sajid was named by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) as one of the perpetrators of the IM bombings in Delhi, Ahmedabad and Jaipur in 2008. As reported by The Indian Express, online jihadist media reports had claimed that Sajid had joined IS forces and was killed in Syria.

“May this boat doesn’t stop until it conquer whole of India from Mushrikeen. And we invite you to keep filling it,” said another tweet.

Pro-IS accounts also tweeted a still from the video of an IS fighter with his finger raised, identifying him as a “Mujahid from India”.

“Abu qaqa al hindi, a Mujahid from India,” tweted @cihadci2.

Fahad was earlier believed to be operating the account @magnetgas which was suspended on 21 occasions, only to resurface with a serial number suffixed to @magnetgas.

He later shifted briefly to the handles @pneumatic11, @tungsten9 and @helium61 which were also suspended. Since then, he has used several variations of the handle @cihadci which have also been suspended.

      THE ARMED IS TERRORISTS ON BOATS MUST RAISE THE ALARM BELLS IN DELHI MUMBAI AND ALL NAVYS , COAST GUARD , CUSTOMS , COASTAL POLICE INTELLIGENCE CIRCLES AND CONCERTED EFFORT AND RESOURCES POURED TO NEUTRALISE THE EMERGING THREAT .WHILST SOME MEASURES WERE TAKEN AFTER MUMBAI ATTACKS , THE MONEY SPENT IN PURCHASING BOATS FOR THE NAVY COASTGUARD , CUSTOMS INTELLIGENCE POLICE WAS LARGELY WASTED AS THESE BOATS ARE NOT SEAWORTHY IN ROUGH WEATHER AND POOR MAINTEANCE . THE ENTIRE EFFORT TO MOBILSE THE AGENCIES INVOLVED UNDER NAVYS COASTAL COMMAND APPEARS TO HAVE FAILED AS THE CIVILAN ORGANISATIONS ARE UNWILLING . THE NEED OF THE HOUR IS TO QUICKLY MOBILISE THE REQUIRED MANPOWER OF NAVYS MARINES AND COASTAL POLICE SETUPS AND NEW BOATS BIGGER AND MORE POWERFUL BASED ON AMERICAN MARINES COMMANDO SETUP PURCHASED WITH DEDICATED MAINTENANCE AND MANNING FACILITIES . THE INDIA COAST THOUGH PROVIDED WITH RADARS AND REGULAR AIRCRAFT PATROLS OF NAVY AND COASTGUARD IS STILL VULNERABLE TO A DETERMINED ENEMY EFFORT AND MORE RESOURCES MANPOWER NEEDS TO BE PUT TO COVER THE FRONTIER 24X7 365 DAYS IN ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS WITH MAXIMUM TECHNOLOGICAL , SPACE AND INTELLIGENCE INPUTS . HAVING SEEN THE COAST AS A SAILING SEAFARER FOR LAST 35 YEARS THINGS LOOK BLEAK AND THE GOVT NEEDS TO WAKE UP FROM SLUMBER

        After eating Indian food and water, and wasting their fathers money, the rascals had sold themselves to unknown persons. The local jamath must excommunicate them

          Secularists Congress, Samajwadi party, JDU are greater threat and menace to India rather than handful of ISIS activists. GOI should tame the opposition as they are trying to wag their tail.
