ISIS Video threatening India is fake, claims suspect’s family

Mumbai : In a video purportedly released by terror group ISIS, India is being threatened with revenge over Babri Masjid and the deaths of Muslims in violence in Gujarat, Kashmir and Muzaffarnagar.

According to sources one of the men in the video has been identified as Fahad Sheikh a resident of Kalyan near Mumbai who according to NIA had fled to Syria to join ISIS in May 2014.

“We will come to avenge Babri Masjid, we will come to avenge the Muslims of Gujarat, Kashmir and Muzaffarnagar,” Fahad Sheikh is heard saying in the 22-minute video.

Fahad Sheikh’s family, however, contradicted the claim saying that the video was fake “We have not seen the video yet, just a few photos. In those photos I don’t see Fahad Sheikh,” said Fahad’s uncle Iftikhar Khan to NDTV.

He said that the video could not be trusted. He further added that the video could be fake or a person could have been threatened to record the video.

Fahad Sheikh who calls himself Abu Amr al-Hindi in the video is the only one who has been identified. Investigative agencies are is the process of questioning the families of Sheikh’s companions — Aarif Majid, Aman Tandel and Fahim Tanki.

Post release of the video, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said there is no reason to worry. “We will fight the forces of terrorism together,” he said.
