Muslims in India will not allow IS to flourish: Rajnath

NEW DELHI :  Stressing that activities of the dreaded terrorist organisation IS were not alarming, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today expressed confidence that the Indian Muslims will never allow such fundamentalist Islamic groups to spread its tentacles in the country.
Intervening during Question Hour in Rajya Sabha, Mr Singh assured that the activities of IS have been largely contained in the country.  “Situation is not alarming.
They (IS) will not be able to spread their activities. India’s Muslim community is so much gelled with the country’s traditions and its values that it would not allow IS to flourish on our soil,” Mr Singh said.
Answering supplementaries, his deputy Kiren Rijiju told the Members that in all, six cases relating to IS activities have been registered so far and some accused arrested.  He said some of the top political leaders have received threats from IS but refused to divulge names.
“It is not wise to disclose the names but we have the list,” Mr Rijiju said.  He said that security cover under various categories, including Z+, Z and Y was being provided to 286 people.  (UNI)
