In fact, terrorist organisations like ISIS and Al-Qaeda are the descendants of Kharijites. US and Israel have created terrorist organizations like Daesh and Al-Qaeda. These organizations are tarnishing the name of Islam and Muslims by their evil practices. They aim at defaming Islam so much so that people would hesitate to take the name of Islam.
The Muslim leader in the press release stated we the Muslims of India urge Muslim youth to keep themselves away from such organisations.
