Kasargod: More Keralites joining ISIS, a cause of concern

Daijiworld Media Network - Kasargod (SP)

Kasargod, Jun 9: The fact that more people of Kerala origin have been joining the dreaded ISIS in spite of having information about the death of people who had joined the force earlier, has been a matter of concern for the authorities.

Recently there was information about Rashid Abdulla from the state, who used to inspire people to join the ISIS and who travelled to Afghanistan sometime back having died in an operation in Afghanistan. This incident too has failed to dissuade the people from joining hands with ISIS.

There is information that six persons have recently joined ISIS. Ashfaq Majeed, his wife, and four children, who left India during January this year, have joined ISIS as per information. It is said that they flew to UAE from here and then reached Nagarhar region in Afghanistan that is under ISIS control via Iran.

The husband and wife were classmates when studying in an engineering college at Malappuram. Ashfaq is from Velamhcherry in Malappuram while his wife is from Kuttyadi in Kozhikode. It is said that her family was not religiously inclined but she got attracted to the philosophy of ISIS. An English newspaper reported that immediately after joining the ISIS Ashfaq spoke to his mother through the messaging application of Telegram app, duly informing her that his entire family had joined ISIS.

It is said that during January two families from Kannur and an unmarried person had joined ISIS at Afghanistan. Anwar, his wife and three children reportedly were killed after they reached Afghanistan. There is no information about Sajid, his wife, and two children, as well as Nizamuddin, who also left India to join ISIS. As per an information, most of the about 20 people who joined ISIS from Kasargod and Palakkad in 2016 have perished.

Sources say that Firoze from Kasargod, who had joined ISIS after reaching Syria wants to surrender. It is said he called a relative two months back to know about the procedure to surrender, kind of punishment he might face if he comes back etc. Some reports say that the ISIS has lost its relevance and its cadres are finding it hard to get food and water.

    Preventive and corrective action must be initiated by the religious heads and leaders of the community. If the government initiates any action, then the opposition especially the so-called sickular parties will stand on the way on the pretext of infringing religious freedom, human rights, freedom of movement and so on.

    Stop all communication lines and facilities that are in use at Kerala... Recent elections also showed their mentality.

    Majority work at gulf don't bother about centre or state governments... They just want land as a point to land between their travel.

    Whole India thinks in one direction but Kerala (West Bengal also ) in a different one.

    This is a serious issue should be dealt with before it go uncontrolled....

    Ahmed K .C mangalore ,they get attracted to the promise of huge money and vehicles ,richness .They are ready to go anywhere as we know where money speaks.Reality is quite different.As we see the pictures of children left back in Syrien,without parents,without food and medical requirements,one has to only pray to God he should send some angels to take care of them.They are trying to do something but not always successful.One cant hold back people who are walking in to the open well that they have seen during the day.They choose people who are educated,and having a good amount of money.

    Even if the news is true, we need not bother.
    If they go outside the country and die in Afghanistan or Pakistan, let them go and get lost.
    Less burden on our country .
    Good if they leave our country and get eliminated.

    It is important to make sure that those terrorists who leave our country to join ISIS should never be allowed to return.
    It is not really useful for us to stop them from going.
    Either shoot them before they leave or allow them to go and die in Syria, Iraq Afghanistan or Pakistan.
    Never take them back after they leave our country.
    Try to catch and kill the recruiters and their financiers.

    Crack these monsters with a new law and eliminate. Left and Congress will come on the way in the name of human rights but this has to be curbed.Otherwise Kerala will become terrorists own country.

    The State Govt wont give a damn about this . Any party that acts would lose their vote bank.
    So they look the other way as such activities happen. Malayalis are migrating to other states esp Karnataka . Many have bought properties in advance as , Plan B in Blore, Mlore Mysore etc. If a Kashmir like uprising takes place nobody want to be rendered homeless.

    This will continue because ISIS portrait themselves as jihadists and has continuously advertising attractive package on websites and other social media for Muslim youths that they will get 72 hours in jannath

    We all feel sorry for them. Most of America and Europe open the door for such war refugees but not a single Arab nations accommodated a single refugees specially women and children s sho were suffering from life. After lots of suffering these idiots never learned the lesson and now come mess up for India where peace freedom has given to every human in India but these idiots never thought to be peaceful. For them comes religion first then wife children. Moreover allowed many marriages per thier belief where one dies then life goes on to next wife more children. It is sad. World has healing from second world war but god know who will explain to such idiots the suffering from wars directly or indirectly by good people like all of us except these jihadist and thier financiers sheikhs their ultimate goal is world dominance of religion where world will end with wars of sufferings of humans. Look at many middle eastern minorities are suffering from such peaceful jihadist of thier so called religious wars on kafirs.
