ISIS jihad video under home ministry scanner, says Kiren Rijiju

PANAJI: The video released by the Islamic State (ISIS), in which about half a dozen fugitive Indian Muslims threaten to wage jihad against India has come under the scanner of the home ministry, Union minister of state for home affairs Kiren Rijiju said.
"The matter came to us and is in our notice," Rijiju said responding to a question during a press conference in Panaji on the ISIS video .
He asserted that those who are involved in these kind of activities would be dealt with strongly to make the country safe.
He also said that "we have already stated earlier that by and large, the Indian society as a whole does not subscribe to that kind of violent ideology".
Stating that a large section of Muslim community in India "does not support this kind of activity," Rijiju pointed out that the community leaders have come out strongly condemning attempts of ISIS to lure the Indian youths.
He also said that we have registered six cases against those are involved with the ISIS. "Many arrests have been made and investigations are on," he said.
"It is out of frustration they are coming with such type of videos and this is not going to affect our security system," he added.
"Since the NDA came to power, we have been dealing very carefully and our process of de-radicalization and counter radicalization steps have been effective," Rijiju said.
