Terrorist organisation Al Qaeda in the Subcontinent (AQIS) has issued a threat relating to India saying that they are ready to blow themselves up in Gujarat, UP, Bombay and Delhi to “fight for the dignity of our Prophet”.
The threat statement said, “saffron terrorists should now await their end in Delhi and Bombay and in UP and Gujarat”.
“They shall find refuge neither in their homes nor in their fortified army cantonments. May our mothers be bereaved of us if we do not avenge our beloved Prophet.”
“We shall kill those who affront our Prophet and we shall bind explosives with our bodies and the bodies of our children to blow away the ranks of those who dare to dishonor our Prophet… [They] shall find no amnesty or clemency, no peace and security will save them and this matter will not close with any words of condemnation or sorrow,” it added.
The threat statement mentioned “Hindutva terrorists occupying India” and said “we shall fight for the dignity of our Prophet, we shall urge others to fight and die for the honour of our Prophet.”
The threat statement, shared by some social media users, referred to controversial remarks by Nupur Sharma, a BJP office-bearer, against whom the party has taken action.
In related news, the Mumbai Police registered a case against Sharma on May 28 for allegedly making objectionable remarks against Prophet Muhammad during a television news debate based on a complaint lodged by Irfan Sheikh, joint secretary of Raza Academy, a Muslim outfit.
Sharma was charged under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), 153A (promoting enmity between groups) and 505(2) (statements conducing to public mischief), police had said.
She was suspended from BJP on June 5 over allegedly insulting remarks against the Prophet Mohammed that drew condemnation from several Islamic nations.
