Al-Qaeda has threatened to attack India in response to the murder of Atiq Ahmed


In response to the gangster Atiq Ahmed’s death while being held in captivity, Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) has threatened attacks on India. The terrorist organisation pledged retaliation and referred to Atiq and his brother Ashraf as “martyrs” in their Eid greeting.

Al-Qaeda also pledged to “liberate Muslims” in its 7-page magazine, which was published by As-Sahab, the terrorist organization’s media propaganda arm.

The AQIS was furious and hailed Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf as “martyrs” for having been murdered.

On Saturday night, while being escorted by police to a medical college for a checkup, the gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf were shot dead at point-blank range by three guys posing as journalists in the middle of a media encounter.

The brothers, who were both incarcerated in Prayagraj, were slain in front of media crews at around 10 p.m. while they were in handcuffs.
