Last month, IS operative Mohammed Shafi Amar was declared a global terrorist by the US Treasury Department. Amar, who was born in Bhatkal in Karnataka, became a head recruiter for the terror outfit in India after his brother Sultan Armar died in March 2015. He has recruited close to 30 Indians for the IS, according to Indian intelligence agencies. Amar is often called ‘Chhote Maula’, ‘Anjan Bhai’ and ‘Yousuf al-Hindi’.

More details awaited.

    As long as Quran exists on earth, ISIS will remain an ideology many Muslims in India and the world. IS is other side of the same coin called peaceful Islam.

      Dawood Ibrahim runs his business in India in hindered ... Zaved Miandad goes to Bal Thackreys residence for dinner ... Hasina Parker is a woman don who is Dawood Ibrahim's sister and was running his business in India ... Yakoob Menon hanging and funeral was given more priority than the APJ Kalam funeral .... How can the media join the radical Muslims in gloryfying Yakoob and give headline coverage to the mammoth mayyat of Yakoob when they should have covered the largest mayyat of the ex president where the crowds were most behaved ... Hindus are ashamed and police and press sold off to the muslim Mafia .... this will continue till we ignore the cries of our Hindus being silenced by the radicals like the Kashmiri Pundits.... Lakshmananda Saraswati death was not condemned by the press however they were showing false reports of Hindu crowds raping a nun in Khandamal .... Each and every grotesque behaviour of the radicals is masked under their human rights to practice their religion ....

        Very valid questions.. but don't we know what the media is all about? it is all abut TRP, noise, filth, sensation and one up on others. Truth and national interest is the last priority. They are no longer news media or news channels. They are noise media. They have so called secularists and liberals whose only job is t take a contrarian view form a safe and secure distance more often enjoying the tax payers hospitality..

        India is focussed only on declaring Azhar Massod and Dawood and Slahuddin as terrorists in The UN... However we missed the bus to fail to react to violent radical islamic protests in the country... Our Appea t policies are our ruin our formation of a minortiy commission and giving reservation to minorities is our weakness. Allowing the Muslims to multiply like rats will be our end ....

          ISIS Indian sympathisers should be beheaded in public and their bodies should be tied to Swines and creameated .... They should be beheaded by the women who were widowed by ISIS. Many Indians have been killed by ISIS .... The whole world is mourning their dead however we still want to look the other way when it comes to a radical Muslim behaviour hurting Hindus ... When will Hindus mourn their dead from the scores of genocide conducted by Jehadis and crusaders ... Modi laid a wreath on the Hollucast Memorial at Israel ... He should set up a similar one in India in each and every state and district reminding us of the Black Diwali of 1971 when Pakistan Army killed 5 million Banadeshis both Hindu and Muslim who were wearing Sarees i.e. showing their Hindu culture roots ....

            Terrorism is funded by fake indian currency . There should be a law so that authorities can drag all muzzie counterfeiters in public and then behead them in full public view . This will reduce 90 of terrorism and kashmir issue.

              just look up abdul karim telgi . This guy is the greatest jehadi in india . This guy is in prison . Actually a law should be made so that these guys are brought to public and their laws chopped off , just like what is done in their guruji state saudi arabia.
