Many radical elements from Salafi Groups of Kerala & Tamil Nadu under the radar

The contact between the Islamic State (ISIS) supporters behind Sri Lanka’s recent blasts and Kerala is now exposed. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday arrested Riyas Aboobacker (29) from Kerala and the agency in a statement said that he was in touch through online with Zahran Hashim, who was one of the executors of the recent blasts in Sri Lanka which took the lives of more than 250 people. The NIA will produce Riyas Aboobacker before the Court on Tuesday.

The terror investigation agency said that he belongs to the ISIS module based in Kasargod district and is hailing from Palakkad district and was also known as Abu Dujana among the ISIS sympathisers and supporters in the South Indian states. He was also a follower of fugitive Zakir Naik and was in online touch with many ISIS operators from Kerala, now stationed in Syria.

NIA is probing the role of certain Jehadi modules in Tamil Nadu also in connection with the Sri Lankan blasts.

“Today (29.04.2018) NIA arrested Riyas A @ Riyas Aboobacker @ Abu Dujana, 29 years, r/o Palakkad, Kerala in Kasargode ISIS module case (RC No. 02/2016/NIA/KOC) for conspiring to commit a terrorist act. During interrogation, he has disclosed that he has been in online contact with absconding accused Abdul Rashid Abdulla @ Abu Isa for a long time and has been following his audio clips including the clip which he had circulated on social media platform instigating others to carry out terror attacks in India. He revealed that he was also having online chat with Abdul Khayoom @ Abu Khalid (Accused in Valapattanam ISIS Case)who was believed to be in Syria. He has further disclosed that he has been following speeches/videos of Zahran Hashim of Sri Lanka for more than a year and has also followed the speeches of Zakir Naik. He admitted that he wanted to carry out a suicide attack in Kerala,” said the statement issued by NIA.

The NIA had earlier received inputs that a group of four persons has been in contact with some of the accused viz. Abdul Rashid, Ashfaq Majeed, Abdul Khayoom, etc who had already migrated to Afghanistan and Syria. “After verification, NIA carried out searches at three places (two in Kasaragod and one in Palakkad District) yesterday (28.04.2019). Three group members have been interrogated for their ISIS links and their plans.  This case was registered in July 2016 following the disappearance of 15 youths from Kasargod and their subsequent migration to ISIS (14 persons to Afghanistan and one person to Syria). Accused Riyas Aboobacker will be produced before NIA Court, Kochi on April 30,” said NIA.

NIA is probing the role of certain Jehadi modules in Tamil Nadu also in connection with the Sri Lankan blasts. Many radical elements in the Salafi Groups operating in Kerala and Tamil Nadu were in touch with or the followers of Zahran Hashim, the main executor of the Sri Lankan blasts[1].

  1. No problem, after all these ISIS terrorists and Conquistador Inquisitors move their tongues is same way as other DUMEELS and MALLUS, so why care Dravidarism, actually commie christe conspiracy is more important. Only Karnataka and Telengana shd close their borders to any ppl from these states, as also other states, to stanch ISIS Consquitadoer infiltration. Kerala is DEAD, by voting evil bloodthirsty Communism, Native Indian Keralities have lost, THE SYRIAN, Portuguese, Arab, AND ETHIOPIAN Nagas, now calling themselves original Dravider Draculas created bstds have pushed them out. Had Jayalalitha been alive TN had some hopes, its the turn of adi (natives) to be pushed out by a 3 pronged Christian Syrian-Ethiopian DD-ISIS (Head of monster Italian Sonia and FAM AND Those Ethiopian-Xtian-Commie pig M.K Stalin & Co). TN had ONLY one leader with Iron Will-Jayalalitha

  2. Without enquiry, if any solid proof is available, they should be directly sent to their saviour Allah, instead of booking case and dragging on for years to gether.

  3. South India is going to be the play field hereafter to the terrorists and terrorism has been spreading it’s tentacle under the carpet .unless every one is diligent, weithout depending upon them govt, we are going to experience which will be disgusting and cruel

  4. I have heard and read -northern kerala- concentration of smugglers -leading to terrorist activities- given the terrorist development in sri lanka- coordination between national intelligence agencies of Bharat, sri lanka, nepal bhutan and bangladesh- network sharing terrorist chatter and intercept would likely help preempt terrorist threats and in the region.
    this thought must have been discussed prior to recent terrorist blasts and attack- inter agency levels between countries- and between government levels- coordination and cooperation have become more urgent and imperative.

    NIA- must become a larger agency – similar to CIA- to cordinate with defence military foces- to counter this seriously growing threat to our way of life- from internal and external terrorist threats.

  5. The MEA, while issuing passports to any Indian national should explicitly prohibit travel to Syria, Afganisthan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan and other countries with potential to recruit and train terrorists. Such travel bans should be enforced to all existing passport holders. Similarly all those who had returned from these places in the recent past must be kept under strict surveillance by NIA.

  6. The Intelligence Agencies and NIA should concentrate on the SDPI, PFI and Welfare Party activities in South Indian states, Delhi Okhla Area and UP Muslim dominated areas. All these gang members are ISIS supporters and many Muslim Journalists from Kerala and Delhi are involved in this racket. These guys are working in many media organisations as cover to go ahead with their Jehadi activities.

    • Not only Muslim journalists, but many Delhi journos, and Lawyers specially Pakipanjabis and Bangalis. ISIS is the result of Christian Commie infiltration and subversion. Islamic Terror is Communism war, as after crash of USSR and kicking of Communism by China, they were orphans, and communists are basically good for nothing, useless, slime of parasites, some 2 bit 20 years passouts in 3rd class in some social science, farty subjects, not worth even peon job, they survive on tukdas thrown by others. Only thing good at is searching new words, from dictionary.All these fig leaves are just for slogans, bascially its ALL MAFIA OPERATION and the Head of Rattlesnake is satanic Vatican. Its Christian and its bstd progeny communist conspiracy, and target is Eastern Gentle, Dharmic, spiritual Eastern Non Cannibal (Xtian) non bloodthirsty (Xtian secret society of Vatican) societies. Islam is supari killers for these White Xtian barbarians
