Al Qaida’s Zakir Musa calls Indian Muslims “shameless” for not joining jihad

Former Hizbul Mujahideen commander Zakir Rashid Bhat alias Zakir Musa, who recently joined Al Qaeda to establish Islamic State of Kashmir, has released an audio recording calling the Indian Muslims as beghairat qaum (shameless community) for not joining Islamic jihad for the Ghazwa-e-Hind (the final and last battle for the conquest of India).

Ghazwa-e-Hind is a radical Islamic term predicting the conquest of the whole Indian sub-continent by Muslim warriors “in the last and final battle”.

In the 4-minute audio clip, shared via Telegram and WhatsApp groups, the tech-shavvy terrorist insisted that the “war” is not just limited to Kashmir. “It is a war between Islam and the infidel,” he said.  “Our beloved prophet has assured Jannat to those who participate in the conquest of Hind,” he added.

Musa spoke in Kashmiri-accent Urdu. This was Musa’s first direct address to Indian Muslims as an Al-Qaeda operative. According to this report, two senior officials of Jammu & Kashmir Police confirmed it was Musa’s voice.

Musa began his audio message with a call to his supporters to come meet him with their weapons. “Those who claim to represent me must visit me with their weapons and I will serve them well,” the Al Qaeda terrorist said with a scornful laugh.

The clip shows a black Al-Qaeda banner, with a world map embed in it, as a background against Musa’s picture with Kalashnikovs rifles emblazoned on his two sides. The clip was interspersed with Islamic quotes in English and Urdu and pictures of Al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden, who was killed by the US Navy Seals in Pakistan in 2011. In addition, the clip carried a background display of the picture and quote of Al Qaeda’s former recruiter Imam Anwar al Awlaki, who was killed in Yemen in 2011.

“The fact that the whole world is against one religion shows just how powerful that religion is,” reads a background quote.

In an oblique reference to Hurriyat leaders who have been insisting on resolution of the Kashmir issue under UN resolutions, Musa quoted Laden, “If they want to solve our tragedies of today in the United Nations, then they are merely hypocrites who are seeking to deceive Allah and his messenger and the believers. Are not all our tragedies only because of the UN?”

In a rant against Indian Muslims, for calling that ‘Islam is for peace’, Musa said, “Indian Muslims are the most ‘beghairat qaum’ (shameless community) in the world who cannot speak up against ‘oppression’ and ‘injustice’. Is this what our Prophet and his ‘salafs’ (followers) have taught us? They should be ashamed of calling themselves Muslims.”

Referring to the Islamic Jung-e-Badr (The battle of Badr) of 624 CE, Musa said Indian Muslims have forgotten about the historic battle. “They were 313 and ruled the world. We are crores now but only as slaves,” he said.

The terrorist, who had succeeded Burhah Wani earlier, urged the Indian Muslims to show the “muscle of Islam” by joining jihad. “You still have a chance to stand up and join us. Come forward, we establish Sharia not just in India but across the world,” he said.

Zakir Musa recently featured in the list of 12 dreaded terrorists, operating in the Kashmir Valley, released by Indian Army. He has been marked as A++ category terrorist by the Indian Army.

Earlier, Musa as the Hizbul Mujahideen commander had called the separatist Hurriyat Conference leaders “hypocrites”, “infidels”, “followers of evil” and had threatened to chop off their heads and hang them in Srinagar’s Lal Chowk “if they create hurdles in the path of making Kashmir an Islamic state”.

Musa parted ways with the Hizbul recently in a step that could be a tactic to pander to Islamist crowd in Kashmir while keeping a ‘secular’ facade to get international and intellectual support.
