As Jihad Watch previously reported here and here, following the busting of a terrorist module in Bangladesh, the head of an Islamic school in Assam, India, Mufti Mustafa, was arrested for sharing jihad videos with schoolchildren. The videos included the “operation and training content of Taliban to motivate students at his madrasa,” according to the News 18 article by Niloy Bhattacherjee: “As Bangladeshi Terror Module Busted in Assam, Police Reveal Arrested Madrasa Teacher Trained Students in Jihad”:
After 19 students from the Jamiul Huda Madarsa were questioned by the National Investigation Team (NIA) team probing the ABT module in Morigaon on July 31, the Assam Police and the central agencies have interrogated the head of the madrasa, Mufti Mustafa, who along with another suspect, is in police custody.
Sharing jihad videos with school kids is appalling to most Westerners, but is all too commonplace in Muslim societies which ascribe to the notion of jihad as the highest calling as per the Sharia. One hadith states: “The head of its matter is Islam and its pillar is the Salah and its highest peak is the Jihad.” (Sunan At-Tirmidhi 2616) This is why anywhere that armed jihad is active, such as in the Palestinian territories, among Al Qaeda, the Islamic State and the like, children are trained in the way of jihad.
Assam police in India have stated that “other madrassas on radar and once evidence against them are found, action will be taken.”
Islamic jihad isn’t a fringe notion in Islam, as Leftist ideologues would have you believe. A disturbing number of Muslims heed the path of jihad globally. This is why disbelievers are safe insulting any religion but Islam. To blaspheme Muhammad can spell death as seen in the case of French teacher Samuel Paty who was beheaded in the streets. It isn’t a far-away problem any longer. It is on Western soil now.
Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) is an al Qaeda-inspired Islamic terror group in Bangladesh. ABT has been described as a “major threat for Bangladesh’s democracy, aggressively targeting youth for jihad recruitment:
Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) reflects a new and young generationof jihadists in Bangladesh. The main target group for recruitment are highly motivated and educated university students, especially those familiar with the English language and extraordinarily active in social media. In other words, ABT is searching for those who are media and technology savy. Nevertheless, ABT members and sympathises can be found throughout society.
Meanwhile, the government of India has already “shut down 750 madrasas but religious madrasas will continue to operate”. The larger question is: what became of the jihad-trained students as they were dispersed to other Islamic schools?
The global jihad has not gone dormant, even as the mainstream media continues to ignore this grave international threat.
