NEW DELHI: Al-Qaeda on the Indian subcontinent (AQIS) has threatened suicide attacks in New Delhi, Mumbai, UP and Gujarat over insulting statements made recently by two senior leaders of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against the Holy Prophet (as) ).
In a statement, AQIS said: “Saffron terrorists should now wait for their end in Delhi and Bombay and in UP and Gujarat.”
“They will find no refuge either in their homes or in their fortified military settlements. May our mothers be deprived of us if we do not avenge our beloved Prophet as,” the statement said.
The organization has threatened to kill those who insult our Prophet as, and we will tie explosives with our bodies and the bodies of our children to blow up the ranks of those who dare to dishonor our Holy Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, Indian media report.
It went on to write, ”[They] they will not find pardon or pardon, no peace and security will save them, and this matter will not be closed by any words of condemnation or sorrow. “
Al-Qaeda said, “Hindu terrorists are occupying India,” adding that they will fight for the dignity of the Holy Prophet.
BJP’s blasphemous remarks last week sparked outrage around the world as many Muslim countries demanded a public apology from Narendra Modi’s government.
The 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) said in a statement that the insults came in the context of an increasingly intense atmosphere of hatred of Islam in India and the systematic harassment of Muslims.
Meanwhile, the Indian government has tightened security following threats.
A federal interior ministry official said intelligence agencies were checking for authenticity. “We have also ordered the state police to ensure that public gatherings or protests are not allowed as they could be targeted by a militant group,” a senior Interior Ministry official in New Delhi said.
