New ISIS document reveals 'grand plan' to wage war in India, trigger 'Armageddon'

ANI 

A recruitment document retrieved from Pakistan's lawless tribal lands has revealed the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria's (ISIS) 'grand ambition' to ignite a war in India, build a new terror army in Pakistan and Afghanistan and provoke an Armageddon-like 'end of the world' situation.

The 32-page-document, titled 'A Brief History of the Islamic State Caliphate (ISC),' has been obtained by American Media Institute (AMI), and says that 'The Caliphate, according to the Prophet', seeks to unite various terror factions in Afghanistan and Pakistan into a single army, the USA Today reports.

The document, which highlights a 'never-before-seen' history of the ISIS, describes future battle plans and urges Al Qaeda to join the group. It says that the self-styled Islamic State leader should be recognised as the sole ruler of the world's one billion-strong Muslim population under a religious empire called, 'caliphate'.

It also warns that 'preparations' are on for an attack in India and predicts that an attack will provoke an 'apocalyptic confrontation' with America.

The document also urges the to 'swallow the bitter truth' that the caliphate will survive and prosper until it takes over the entire globe and beheads every last person who rebels against Allah.

U.S. officials are concerned about the recruiting efforts of the ISIS, as the group has stepped up its online outreach.

Confronted with efforts by the Islamic State to inspire Americans to commit violence, the F.B.I. in recent months has apprehended people suspected of being Islamic State sympathizers soon after they came onto the government's radar.

The F.B.I. has arrested and charged at least 25 people in the past three months with having ties to the Islamic State or other terrorist groups, compared with 20 people arrested over the previous year, according to court records.

The revelation came after former Punjab DGP K P S Gill claimed that the terror attack that took place in Gurdaspur, Punjab recently was carried out under the umbrella of the ISIS.

At least six people were killed and nine injured after three terrorists, who were armed with mortars and night-vision devices, apart from AK-47s, crossed the Ravi on the border and came to Dinanagar by taking the route to the railway track.

The GPS devices showed they were activated at Talwandi Point in Gurdaspur's Parmanand village and their next target was civil lines in Gurdaspur town, around 25 km from Dinanagar.
