In May last year, the Islamic State (also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh) terrorist organization claimed to have established a new “province” in India. This was a unique declaration after the encounter between militants and security forces in Kashmir.
The dreaded terrorist organization, through its Amaq news agency, said that the Arabic name of the new branch is “Wilayah of Hind” (province of India). This claim was rejected by a senior police officer of Jammu and Kashmir.
Previously, ISIS attacks in Kashmir have been linked to its so-called Khorasan Provincial Branch which was formed in 2015 and aimed at “Afghanistan, Pakistan and nearby areas”.
