Islamic State (IS) may carry out terror strikes anywhere in the country using a single terrorist also known as ‘lone wolf’ to create a mayhem, Union minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju reports The Times of India.
“Challenges are there. We have to accept that it is a reality. The threat is there,” Kiren Rijiju said. In a statement that has a potential to trigger a controversy, Rijiju said Muslims from the southern states were “attracted” more to the IS ideology than their north Indian counterparts.
“It is a reality (some south Indian Muslims getting attracted to ISIS). It is a fact. But we should not undermine our vigil in other parts of the country,” he said.
Rijiju said some web portals are under watch for their role in spreading the IS propaganda, but it is important to note that the servers of the web portals were not located in India.
