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.
