In an exclusive four-part series on radicalisation in India,Tufail Ahmadexamines a variety of conditions and scenarios that have made it possible to radicalise youths in Maharashtra Hyderabad Kerala and indeed India as a whole You can read the first part of the series titled ‘Radicalisation of Muslim youths in India’ here The second part follows: On 9 August the Urdu daily Roznama Inquilabpublished three reports thatshed light on radicalisation of Muslims in Maharashtra in favour of the Islamic State or IS One report quoted Muslim leader Abu Asim Azmi as telling Muslims in Mumbai: "The Islamic State is an un-Islamic organisation which is using Muslim youths by misleading them It has no connection with Islam" As per the second report a letter was sent to the Jalgaon district collector threatening to bomb four train stations including those in Jalgaon and religious places like Shirdi on Independence Day The letter contained slogans such as: "Long live Pakistan Death to India" A third report noted that the anti-terrorism squad (ATS) of Maharashtra had arrested Raisuddin Siddiqui an Urdu school teacher from Hingoli town over his attempt to join the IS File image of Mumbai-based televangelist Zakir Naik who is suspected of having radicalised many Muslim youths with his fiery speeches Screen grab from YouTube These reports reveal the crux of the jihadi problem confronted by Muslims One Azmi’s statement is an act of denial telling Muslims to shut their eyes to the radicalisation of youths even as many Muslim suspects are being arrested Twothe letter containing a slogan like "Long live Pakistan Death to India" underlines a societal process in which pro-Pakistan slogans are legitimate in the eyes of some Muslim and Hindu journalists Similarly the waving of Pakistani flags outside Jammu and Kashmir such as in Bihar’s Nalanda district is seen as a legitimate act by Muslims This is because Indian leaders like Nitish Kumar visit Pakistan unconsciously sending a sociological message to Indian Muslims that they are Pakistanis The same leaders never visit Bangladesh This societal process represents a sociology of the mind that divides Indian society Ideas whether negative or positive have consequences for people and nations whether or not we desire them We are seeing a "new cycle of partition" that could constitute a long-term threat to India’s territorial integrity says journalist Siddharth Singh India has influential organisations like Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind which has said that the Muslim Personal Law cannot be subjected to the Constitution of India Thirty madrassas of Ujjain were in the news recently for seeing religion in food as they refused to accept mid-day meals from a Hindu temple In 2014 youths in Jharkhand’s Dhanbad district wore t-shirts that had slogans like: Islamic State Pakistan However the immediate issue before the Indian state is the pro-IS radicalisation Jihadi organisations succeed only when societies have an existing infrastructure of ideas supportive of their cause Of all the states Maharashtra has witnessed perhaps the most radicalisation of Muslim youths during the past three years It was here specifically from Mumbai that four youths went to Iraq and joined the IS in 2014 Of them Areeb Majeed was brought back from Turkey where he ended up for treatment after being injured in Syria The vital point is this: The four left India much before Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi had declared himself the caliph of all Muslims After this it was thought that radicalisation of Muslims would cease Conversely the recent arrests in Aurangabad district indicate that Maharashtra has continued to experience radicalisation from 2014 through now The following persons all residents of Parbhani were arrested: Naser Bin Yafi aka Chaus and Mohammed Shahed Ali Khan were arrested on 14 and 23 July respectively The ATS also arrested Iqbal Ahmed Kabir Ahmad and Raisuddin Siddiqui separately on 8 August Of the four Chaus was in touch with Farooque a jihadi in Syria Media reports quoting rival politicians put the number of Muslim youths missing from Aurangabad and Nanded regions from eight at the lowest to a hundred These figures are inaccurate but help in understanding the level of people’s concern Perhaps this is why the ATS has begun an "I am anti-terrorist" campaign across Maharashtra in which 25000 college students have enrolled Significantly the Parbhani module was not something that bucked the trend of radicalisation among Muslims In 2015 four Muslim youths from the Malwani suburb of Mumbai went missing Of the four — Wajid Sheikh Mohsin Ibrahim Sayyed Ayaz Sultan and Noor Mohammed Sheikh — two returned but Ayaz travelled to Iraq Before Republic Day this year security officials arrested 14 youths from 12 locations in six cities — Tumkur Mangaluru Bengaluru Hyderabad Lucknow and Mumbai Of them Imran Moazzam Khan Pathan belonged to Vaijapur town and Mudabbir Shaikh to Mumbra both in Maharashtra For links with Pathan another person Khalid Ahmed Ali Nawazuddin was arrested from Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh Much like in Bangladesh where the current crop of jihadis comes from Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh an offshoot of Jamaat-e-Islami many suspects in India too seem to be linked to previously known terror groups like the Indian Mujahideen and the Students Islamic Movement of India or SIMI which grew out of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind For example Chaus wanted to carry out a lone-wolf attack on the police headquarters at Aurangabad to avenge the death of SIMI operative Khalil Qureshi who was killed in a police clash in 2012 Qureshi’s name also appears as Khalil Khilji who was part of a module that sought to kill judges of the Allahabad High Court for a verdict it delivered on the Ayodhya issue Some other cases reported in Maharashtra include: Anis Ansari who was arrested for planning a suicide attack on the American School in Bandra; a 16-year-old Pune girl was detained as she wanted to join IS; three youths from Hyderabad were detained at Nagpur airport as they were heading to join the IS; Shoaib Ahmed Khan and Shah Mudassir both from Maharashtra were detained in Hyderabad; Zubair Ahmed Khan a journalist from Mumbai was arrested in Delhi after he visited the Iraqi Embassy for a visa — to join IS; a policeman was stabbed at Pusad in Yavatmal district leading to the arrest of an Islamic cleric who had radicalised the attacker Abdul Malik and others Also this year five members of a Mumbai family left India to join the IS Currently the number of Indian Muslims with IS in Syria is estimated to be around 30 but it could be higher In June it emerged during interviews by intelligence agencies that some educated and rich Muslim youths of Pune were attracted by the global idea of the caliphate and expressed the view that Shari’a law is not subject to the Indian Constitution Not all of them are enemies of the State but some of them could be radicalised by Islamic preachers To stop radicalisation India must watch the role of Islamic clerics televangelists like Zakir Naik and Brother Imran Urdu journalists as well as various Islamic organisations especially those of the peacefulvariety Stay tuned for the otherparts of the series: Part One: Radicalisation of Muslim youths in India Part Three:Radicalisation of Muslim youths

Congress manifesto release on Wednesday Rahul had attacked Modi saying "It is not about an individual but he (Modi) represents a ideology and that ideology is exclusionary ideology" The Congress vice-president had also said that it is the ideology that makes people fight with each other and and it will bring harm to the country and every Congressman will fight to defeat that ideology Taking a dig at Ajit Singh the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate said the son of Chaudhary Charan Singh who fought for the benefit of farmers has "discarded" his father’s path for power "We respect Chaudhary Charan Singh who fought against Congress policies so that farmers could benefit It’s the dream of a child to fulfill his parent’s dream But his son has left his father’s path In society as well if a son discards the path of his father the society too does not accept him" Modi said "For the sake of power those who discard their father’s principles and even go to the party which troubled his own father do you trust such a person Bagpat needs a grassroot leader" he said Uttar Pradesh will only benefit when people of the state get rid of dynastic politics he said adding this time there is a need for one slogan removing SP BSP and Congress Attacking the Centre Modi said the jawans who have sacrificed their lives for the country are not getting the respect they deserved Talking about ‘One rank one pension’ he said Congress comes out with promises before every elections but never implements them He said the scheme would have been implemented if AB Vajpayee’s government had come to power in 2004 He also said that the government had "little respect" for farmers and pointed out that more farmers have committed suicide than people who have died in terrorist attacks Accusing the government of being soft on Pakistan he said the government was busy serving the visiting Pakistan prime minister with delicacies after its army had beheaded an Indian soldier He said the government at the Centre did not have the courage to tell Pakistan that the visit will take place later "Lal Bahadur Shashtri gave the slogan ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’ Now Congress’s slogan seems to be ‘Mar Jawan Mar Kisan’" Modi said Criticising the poor power scenario in Uttar Pradesh Modi said that in Gujarat if there is a power cut for two minutes it makes front page news but in Uttar Pradesh if it comes for two minutes it becomes news Uttar Pradesh needs a new energy in democracy Questioning the will of the state government Modi said the towns of Gautam Budh Nagar Ghaziabad Baghpat and others could have been made into satellite towns so that the pressure on Delhi could have been lessened Attacking the state government he said they indulge in vote bank politics to come to power and women are not safe in the state Modi said during the Independence struggle in 1857 the message was "free India from British rule and messenger was kamal (lotus and roti) In 2014 the messenger is Kamal and Modi" PTI
