New Delhi: Terror organisation Al Qaeda threatened to wage war and attack Kolkata, Delhi and Bengaluru to capture Jammu and Kashmir. This is the first time any terror organization have threatened to target the ‘City of joy’.
But it’s unclear what is the relation of Kolkata with Kashmir. The Al Qaeda jihadist group released a video on their website, “online jihadi” on Tuesday night showing the terror organization’s second biggest leader Usama Mahmood.
He is seen threatening to attack big cities in India like Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata to snatch Kashmir from India. He further said that, “Army deployed in Kashmir will be moved to these cities after we will attack them and this will give us an opportunity to snatch Kashmir from India”.
Big cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru are often targeted by terror organisations but apart from 2002 American Centre attacks, Kolkata hasn’t been on their radar. According to intelligence sources, the ‘city of joy’ is now on terrorist’s target to sow seeds of jihadist movement in the sub-continent.
