Qaedat al-Jihad/al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS)

On 3 September 2014, Ayman al-Zawahiri declared in a video message, titled “War should continue, message to the Muslims of Kashmir,” that al Qaeda launched Qaedat al-Jihad in the Indian sub-continent. Zawahiri said that "Establishing Al Qaeda in the Indian subcontinent is the result of two years of work to unify the Mujahideen. The rise of this new branch demonstrates that jihad under the leadership of Amir of Believers, Mullah Omar (head of the Afghan Taliban) is expanding." According to the al Qaeda leader the group’s objective is to: "Establish sharia in the land and to free the occupied land of Muslims in the Indian sub-continent.” Zawahiri also said that the group "will serve Muslims in Burma, Kashmir, Gujarat, Bangladesh, Ahmedabad and Assam."Video: 17 November 2015, 'Jihad Memories'  via As-SahabTTP Response

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.
