        With defeat staring in Syria and Iraq, ISIS is now concentrating on Afghanistan ! With dropping of MOAB, a number of Indians are said to died ! They would also try to establish networks in India, which is evident from the recent arrest and the arrest made earlier related to bombing of the Ujjain p enger ! Needless to say, India needs to be on high alert ! These guys have even dodged the western intelligence ! Greater cooperation with US & Afghani intelligence agencies is required in this regard !

          All those who are arrested all over India should be accused of having links with IS IS. Especially those who oppose Brahminism.

            India Russia China should seek an international investigation into who is controlling these terrorists groups The US and its allies have already said they create these terror groups to overthrow governments Those who resist an investigation may be guilty

              Stop radicalization of youths with religion based politics. Killing human by fringe elements or creating hatred shall not serve purpose. Create healthy brotherhood to negate any kind of radicalization by anyone. Let peace is only way to live and let others live.

                  Yep and so your calims falls apart when you know in your heart that they are your sunni muslim brothers. How is it possible when all terrorists are sunni muslims? Is it because Mohammed was a terroeist?

                    Good work done. Hope these are the real people sent by terror out fits and not decoys. For such persons, aiming to carryout terror activities, law with much harsher punishment, need to be enacted and applied.

                                  ISIS Terrorists are growing in India, merely due to Simple Silly but Serious Secular mistakes done by pseudo?secular Nehru & his cons ution writer clerks?? Both failed to do even common civil code for India. Rest cons ution has no meaning, from view of Muslim sisters? They forced 1-wife act by Law on poor Hindus, forcing them to go courts even for simple mutual divorce; wasting a lot of money and prime time in Life; so Hindus waste 2-3 years at courts and hence their po tion is growing 50 slow compared to Muslims. However they left Muslim men free to do 4-shaadi gifted Verbal Talak!! resulting Grave in-Human In-Justice on millions of Muslim sisters like Shah Bano. So Also resulted Muslim po tion to grow 50 faster than others, then their poverty, resulting in ISIS Terrorist, after taking education in Madr ah, at cost of we the majority Hindu Tax payers!! Now bad need to Just Reverse Mr. Ambedkar wrong Laws at Once? To get rid of growing ISIS Muslim Hard-Core Terrorism ??

                                      This is how govt plays that this news is to overshadow the Mallya bail within hours of arrest. May be picked up innocents as scapegoats to hide the Mallya case failure. Govt just fooling people from last 3 years nothing else.

                                          This is an ault on muslims. In a state with innumerable illegal businesses, terrorism, like meat trade, is an exclusive muslim trade. In lieu of tackling down terrorism, Yogi government is signalling that muslims will not be able to carry their will like before.

                                                  So called secular Hindus are responsible for spreading of Islamic terrorism and Islamist in India. Every Hindus working for congress, cpim, ncp, tmc is reposnsible for this. They must keel themselves for promoting enemy of our temples and god statues in beautiful temples.

                                                        This was happen only the nationalist Govt runs the business and Govt should deal with iron hand to avert any terror activities to save innocent lives. Now all sicular party will cry that several vote has lost because of arrest. If Mullah family in Govt. sure they should have given information to run away to these culprits. Good job done by Police of respective state. Also one more observation, that all non congress govt arrested these culprits which must note.
