As per the Islamic State’s latest edition of its propaganda magazine Al Naba, one of the three attackers involved in the Kabul Gurudwara attack a few days ago is an Indian.
Around 200 worshippers in the Kabul Gurudwara were exposed to an attack by 3 terrorists, who opened fire and tossed grenades on them. The Kabul forces then killed the attackers and freed 80 hostages after a six-hour gun battle. Eventually, 25 Sikh worshippers were killed in the incident.
One of the Attackers is an Indian
IS named one of the attackers as ‘Abu Khalid Al-Hindi’ and also published a photo of him. The photo sees the attacker holding a Type 56 assault rifle and pointing his finger upwards in a Tawhid salute.
However, as per Kerala police’s latest revelation, this photo is actually that of Muhammad Musin, who died on June 18 last year. Musin is an engineering student from Thrikkaripur from Kasargod district of Kerala.
Second Indian attacker in the IS
If the attacker is indeed Muhammed Musin, it makes him the second attacker from India in the Islamic State. Shafi Armar from Bhatkal in the Uttar Kannada district had died in a suicide bomb attack in Raqqa in 2015. He was the first Indian to be designated as a global terrorist by the United States.
