ISIS designs currency for Jammu and Kashmir
New Delhi, June 13: Sirajjudin was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) recently. In the chargesheet filed against this alleged ISIS operative from India, there are details that would leave one shocked.
His chats are the most telling and it goes on to show how much of a leaning he had towards the ISIS.
For one, he was adamant to set up a module in India.
Secondly he had planned on going to Syria and then returning to India and set up a module in Kashmir. He wanted India and Pakistan to stay out of Kashmir and wanted the state to be governed by the Caliphate. Interestingly he had also designed the currency for Kashmir.
A currency for Kashmir:
The investigation conducted by the NIA suggest that Sirajjuddin and his associates had planned on carrying out a series of attacks. There was a two pronged plan. While one was to undertake lone wolf attacks the other was to establish the Caliphate in Kashmir.
If one looks closely at the map designed by the ISIS, it has portions of Gujarat in it and the whole of Jammu and Kashmir. Sirajjudin who makes references to this feels that it is only through Kashmir that they can establish the outfit. He felt that Kashmir must be governed not by India or Pakistan, but the Islamic Caliphate as is the claim of the outfit in Syria.
Interestingly in one of the chats he shares an image of a note in the 20 denomination. The note has the letters, ISIS Welcomes you to Kashmir. This according him should be the official currency of Kashmir.
Sirajuddin in a chat with one UAE operative says that he has managed to gather 300 recruits for the ISIS. This is a claim which the NIA doubts.
He constantly speaks about overcoming the Hindus in India and says that over a period of time, the Constitution should be replaced with the Caliphate. further he seeks out information on how to reach Syria. He felt that he should train for sometime in Syria and then return to India.
