In the past, a number of reports have suggested that Indian men have been recruited by the Islamic State for Iraq and Syria (ISIS) for their operations in Syria and other places in the Middle East. A few weeks back, a propaganda video surfaced on the internet. The video describes the life of a young male, Abu Muslim (whose name means 'may Allah accept him') who was recruited from Canada. The video shows him narrating his experience of how he was a street janitor in Canada and then moved to Syria. He calls on people to help them in anyway possible including engineers and doctors. He glorifies the cause of Jihad and asks people to come along with their families who "will be taken care of. We have wide expanse of territory in Syria."
The video ends with him being killed in a fight. The video which was made by Al Isabah Media. As scroll.in reported, their page on Facebook has over 2800 likes. The video has been translated into Tamil as well as Urdu in addition to the Hindi subtitles in the videos. ISIS leader Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi's video earlier has also been translated to Hindi and in a message published last month he has also called on Muslims from India to come and fight for the dignity they deserve.
