Islamic State warns of Las Vegas-like attack on Kumbh Mela, Thrissur Pooram in new audio

Trivandrum, 15 November, (Asiantribune.com):

An audio clip surfaced in Malayalam claiming to be from the Islamic State has called for financial help and war against India while living in the country.

The male voice in the 10-minute clip liberally quotes from the Quran in an authentic Arabic pronunciation. It claims that it is the 50th audio clip from Daulatul Islam.

“You use your intellect. Poison them in food. Use trucks. Drive over them at Thirssur pooram or at Maha Kumbha Melam. IS Mujahideen are doing it in several parts of the world. In Las Vegas, one of our supporters killed many people at a music concert. At least you should try to derail a train. Or use a knife,” the clip said.

In Las Vegas, A “lone wolf” gunman carried out America’s deadliest mass shooting in a meticulously planned attack at a festival crowd of 22,000.

Police sources said the voice in the audio clip belongs to Rashid Abdullah of Kasaragod who left to join Islamic State in Yemen.

The clip has surfaced at a time Kerala police have said that about 100 people from the state are suspected to have joined the Islamic State. Quoting sources, PTI had reported that the Kerala Police had collected evidence in this regard, including over 300 voice clips and messages from WhatsApp, Telegram messaging applications and other social media platforms.

The clip in question says that Muslims should go for hijrah (migrate) from Darul Kufr (house of non-believers) to Darul Islam (house of believers). “If you are not able to do that despite your prayers and efforts, then you should financially support Daulatul Islam and Islamic State,” it says.

According to sources, this is the first time Islamic State is making an open call for an attack in India.

“Many are trying to finish IS and khilafat. We have been reduced to nothing in many parts. But, Daultaul Islam is still active and we will fight until the last man,” the clip adds.
