The India centric orientation of these groups is however under threat by the pan-Islamic ideology of the ISIS. The nervousness with regard to ISIS shows on Hafiz Saeed. He and the military-intelligence establishment of Pakistan seem to be worried about the prospects of these jihadis gravitating towards ISIS, after all nothing attracts jihadis as much as the cause of Caliphate and Ummah.

As a consequence India may expect an increase in the scale and intensity of attacks by jihadi groups in the near future, as a desperate measure to keep their jihadi flock together.

The other enterprise of rewarding the pan-Islamists with Afghan territory has also failed, and therefore these elements too may grow exasperated of their patrons, i.e. Pakistan and join ranks with the ISIS in pursuit of Islamic Caliphate.

Some of them have already turned hostile to Pakistan and were responsible for the attack on Army Public School in Peshawar in December 2014, thus impelling Pakistan military to launch Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

Indian Intelligence agencies have revealed that at least 23 Indians have joined the ISIS and six of them have died.

This is not at all surprising given the psychological, historical and ideological appeal that of ‘Caliphate’ has exerted on the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent. Even Mahatma Gandhi pandered to the idea of Caliphate when he supported the Khilafat Movement (1921-1926) for political exigencies. This agitation, based on Pan Islamic fundamentalist platform served as a major impetus towards Muslim separatism and establishment of Pakistan.

Indicators reveal that despite the overconfidence that regimes of South Asian countries have displayed regarding their insulation against the idea and phenomenon of the ISIS, at the subterranean levels in Muslim societies the idea has caught the imagination of sizeable segment of the youth.

In Pakistan, as per a survey conducted by an agency ‘Pew Research Survey’[1] of Muslim majority countries, 62 percent Pakistanis when asked for their opinion about the ISIS said ‘don’t know’, nine percent said that they were ‘favorable’ and 28 percent were ‘unfavorable’. This graph in respect of other countries is as follows:-

The huge‘don’t know’ category is a cause of concern as it comprises silent sympathizers and potential recruits. In other Muslimmajority countries, this category is significantly lower .

There are mixed signals emanating from Pakistan with regards to the ISIS which is clearly a sign of duplicity, intrinsic to statecraft of the country. The Foreign Secretary Aizaz Choudhary ruled out the possibility of ISIS presence in Pak, but the provincial government of Balochistan in a secret
communication to the federal government, copy of which is doing the rounds of the Pakistani media,has warned about a massive recruitment drive underway by ISIS in Pakistan. It has reported that some 12000 youth have been recruited by the organization in Hangu and Khurram Agency. Further, the intelligence input suggests that the ISIS is in contact with elements within other militant organization like the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah (ASWJ), urging them to switch loyalities, and join hands against Pakistan.
