Indian Muslim found operating popular Twitter account supporting ISIS

BANGALORE: While the country was yet to come to terms to the fact that some Muslim youth from Maharashtra had gone to Syria to fight for the Islamic terrorist group ISIS, the latest reports confirm that yet another Indian Muslim youth was giving online support to the terrorist group.

Channel 4, a British news channel has revealed that @ShamiWitness – one of the most popular and followed ISIS-supporting account – was being run by an Indian Muslim youth living in Bangalore.

The youth – apparently named Mehdi Masroor Biswas – works as an executive in some Indian conglomerate and had been living a dual life.

On Facebook, where he would post as Mehdi, his real name, he will post updates about city life and pizzas he ate and other such daily life events, while on Twitter he would transform into a bloodthirsty Jehadi who wants the entire world to be ruled by the Caliph Abu Bakr Baghdadi, the head of ISIS.

This incident confirms the concerns raised by the Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh earlier, where he had said that a part of young Indian Muslims were attracted towards extreme Jihadi ideologies.

While it’s not yet clear what the government of India will be doing to tackle the menace, many people fear that India is on its way to become another Britain, where extremist Islamic ideologies have found a home away from the Middle East and Pakistan.

This fear stems from the fact that left-liberal group in India remains sympathetic to the Islamists and are always looking to bail them out by blaming Hindu fundamentalist organizations.

OpIndia.com will not be surprised if Mehdi Masroor Biswas finds supporters among the left-liberal group in India if he claims that he was “pushed” towards ISIS because he was not happy with RSS and Narendra Modi. Maybe that’s what his lawyers are telling him to claim while Indian police looks out for him.
