ISIS failed to set up shop in Kashmir
The Islamic State has not been able to make inroads into the Kashmir valley. The Minister for Home (State) Hansraj Ahir told the Lok Sabha that one incident related to the ISIS was reported from the Valley. Slogans were shouted in favour of the outfit, he said.
This was the only major incident that was reported from Srinagar in November 2017. The ISIS has been making attempts to set up shop in Kashmir. However it has failed to generate any traction, Intelligence Bureau officials said.
The Kashmir Valley has only seen the presence of the Hizbul Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad. The agencies have been able to successfully thwart any attempt made by the ISIS to set up shop in the Valley
The social media and the ground level workers are under close scrutiny ever since the ISIS announced its Kashmir plan.
