Make sure that ISIS has no sympathisers in India
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.
