Wilayah al-Hind – ISIS’ Kashmir Cell Blasts Separatists, Pakistan For Double Game: TOI


Two militants of ISIS’ Kashmir Cell – Wilayah al-Hind were neutralized by the Indian Army in an encounter in Shopian on Tuesday. Police sources told media that said the two militants, Sayar Ahmad Bhat and Shakir Ahmad Wagay were linked to Wilayah al-Hind and were wanted for terror activities in Kashmir.

Even though the police called them ISIS-sympathizers instead of militants of Wilayah al-Hind, a screenshot of the ISIS statement in Arabic suggested that the terror group owned the affiliation of the two terrorists.

While police were still verifying the authenticity of the ISIS claim, the screenshot was circulated on social media. Kashmir police sources said both Sayar and Shakir were school dropouts. While Sayar was reportedly missing since March 17, Shakir left his home on January 04, this year.

According to Times of India, a five-minute Wilayah al-Hind promotional video with Shakir as a proselytizer was shared on Whatsapp groups by ISIS sympathizers in Kashmir.  Read More
