Islamic State slams Taliban for trying to build relations with India
The video then reportedly goes on to target the Taliban and its ministers in Afghanistan for trying to build a relationship with India. The video ends with a message to launch attacks on India very soon.Previously, the Al Qaeda had threatened suicide attacks on India in the cities of Delhi, and Mumbai, and in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh and urged the Muslim community to fight for the 'dignity of the Prophet'. "The offenders of the Prophet Muhammad, the pride of humanity, shall find no amnesty or clemency, no peace and security will save them and this matter will not close with any words of condemnation of sorrow," the letter by Al Qaeda in the Subcontinent (AQIS) read.
The BJP suspended Nupur Sharma for her alleged remarks against Prophet Mohammed. While Sharma unconditionally withdrew her statement, the government faced a major diplomatic backlash from Islamic countries condemning the statement. The government clarified that the statement by an individual, who does not hold any position in the government, is not the official stand of New Delhi.
