Dismissing reports of the Islamic State gaining a foothold in Kashmir, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today that Indian Muslims would never allow outfits such as IS to have a base in the country.

Singh also said he has complete faith in the Indian youth that they would not let IS misled them.

“Any Indian Muslim who believes in Islam would not allow any opportunity to the Islamic State to have a base in the country,” the Union home minister said.

His remarks came in wake of claims that the global militant outfit was involved in an attack on forces in Srinagar on November 17 in which a militant, Mugees, and a sub-inspector, Imran Tak, were killed.

The group claimed the attack through its propaganda news agency, ‘Amaq’. Photographs of Mugees with the IS flag had surfaced on the social media. Even his body was wrapped in the flag of the banned terror group during funeral.
