        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.
