    13 suspected Indian IS fighters killed as MOAB hit Afghanistan: Reports
    At least two dozen Indians, including 21 from Kerala, were believed to have joined the IS in eastern Afghanistan last year.

    A combination of still images taken from a video released by the US Department of Defence on April 14, 2017 shows (clockwise) the explosion of a MOAB, or "mother of all bombs", when it struck the Achin district of the eastern province of Nangarhar, Afghanistan.
    Diplomatic sources in Kabul said there was “no confirmation of these reports”. An Indian security source in New Delhi also said: “No confirmation as of now about the killing of any Indian in the attack.”

    Amaq News Agency, the IS media arm, has said none of the group’s fighters were killed in the attack.

    The security source said NIA officials were in touch with families of Indians suspected of being recruited by IS to gather details.

    At least two dozen Indians, including 21 from Kerala, were believed to have joined the IS in eastern Afghanistan, the area that was targeted by the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), nicknamed the “mother of all bombs”, on April 13.

    Did the ‘Mother Of All Bombs’ kill Indian recruits of Islamic State? Officials unsure
    Relatives of these people too said they had no information about the fate of their wards. Thirteen of the missing are from Padanna village in north Kerala’s Kasargode district.

    Before the MOAB attack, two alleged Indian recruits – Mohamed Mursheed and Mohammad Hafeezuddin – had died in the past two months. Hafeezuddin died two months ago but news of Mursheed’s death was conveyed to his family two days before the MOAB attack.

    “After informing us about the death of Mursheed, we are yet to hear from them. I tried to send a message to Ashfaaq Majeed, one of the missing youth who used to send us messages, on Telegram but it elicited no replies,” said BC Rehman, a relative of one of the missing men.

    The security official quoted by Pajhwok said the MOAB attack in Achin district of Nangarhar province also killed former Pakistani Taliban fighter Shahid Omar Afridi, Mumtaz, a retired Pakistani military officer, and commanders Emran Orakzai and Aftab Punjabi from Pakistan.

    The official said important IS hideouts were located in a cave complex that was targeted with the MOAB. Fighters from other parts of the world would come and meet in this complex, the official said.

    Many indian muslims fled india for global jihad. India is failed to stop them.
    Recent Pulama suicide bomber was also indian citizen. There are many Jihadi organisations active in india which posses threat for Peace.

    haha careful what you say here in PDF.

    It's actually a blessing. Let them leave the country, die in Afghanistan or Syria. What's the use of preventing them from going? So that we can have little IS centers in India?

    Rounding them up and killing extra judicially is not possible either.

    True!! You also have Love Jehad, ghar wapsi, gau rakshak, bahu lao beti jao pogroms to systematically kill Indian Minorities like muslims, xtians and dalits.

    I hope Modi brings the Sati culture in Hindustan too. So we can see you murder more people in the name religious intolerance.

    India should also do operations like Zarb-e-azb or Raad-ul-fasad etc, inside India to flush out all the Jihadi scums I guess. :-)

    No. FYI, all of them were Muslims and they were brainwashed and used by ISI using the terror sleeper cells of LeT etc. One of the LeT commander is still rotting in prison in Ernakulam.

    Throughout India where we suspect terror involvement. Afterall its the right of every country to get rid of terrorists. :-)

    That's because in the name of operation forces do commit human rights violation and harras innocents. There are Well documented evidances, not just from India but elsewhere around the world.

    Are you saying that instead of dealing with your home grown terrorism, you are happy to export it?

    Start with RSS... That filth needs to go

    Did the “seculars” do anything about Kunan poshpura village of rape victims?



    Or perhaps these NE women?

    Just 2 examples... i can quote several more... and much more recent.

    These are examples of cases which went nowhere despite international condemnation.

    Err! Would you call Jihadi jack as an example of Britain's home grown terrorism? If you do, then I got nothing to say, stay they way you are. If you don't then you got your answer.

    Indians are shameless people. They literally butcher the low caste Dalits, kill minorities for eating beef , gang rape women on daily basis and than they come here lecturing us about secularism and civilization
