Make sure that ISIS has no sym­pa­this­ers in In­dia

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - COMMENT -

The news re­port Dhan bad­men held for wear­ing ISIS marked shirts dur­ing pro­ces­sion (Novem­ber 6) is disturbing. Although the 20-22 year old men when ques­tioned in de­ten­tion said that they were only play­act­ing the role of mil­i­tants, things may not be so straight­for­ward. The po­lice have also picked up the owner of the print­ing firm that em­bossed the cap­tion ‘ISIS Pak­istan’ on the T-shirts. This could have been done by anti-so­cial el­e­ments as a trial bal­loon to see how many young peo­ple would be will­ing to be as­so­ci­ated with ISIS. The po­lice should thor­oughly in­ves­ti­gate the in­ci­dent and make sure that this is not re­peated.
