Al-Qaeda warns of attacks in Delhi, Mumbai, UP, Gujarat

New Delhi: Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) has issued a chilling warning of carrying out ‘suicide bombings’ in Delhi, Mumbai, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat in a bid to take avenge the insult to the Prophet Mohammed.

“The saffron terrorists should now await their end in Delhi, Bombay, UP, and Gujarat. They should find refuge neither in their homes nor in their fortified army cantonments,” a threat letter by the AQIS read.

It said that the “hearts of Muslims all over the world are bleeding” and are filled with feelings of revenge and retribution.

Former Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Nupur Sharma had allegedly made controversial remarks against Prophet Mohammed following which she was suspended by the party.

The controversial statement made by Nupur Sharma set off an international furor. Several Muslim nations, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Indonesia, and Iran, as well as the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, have officially protested their statements and demanded an apology.

However, the chilling threat issued by AQIS has alerted the security agencies in the country.

The letter also mentioned Ghazwa-e-Hind — the battle for India — in which they said the victory of Muslims in the country.

“At the same time, we bring tidings of death and destruction to the rulers of India, of executions and hangings, of imprisonment and being bound with chains,” read the letter.

Meanwhile, suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma was provided security by the Delhi Police in the wake of death threats she has received over her controversial remarks.

She had lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police on May 27 alleging that she has been receiving death threats and target hatred against her.
