Indian origin Jihadis in Syria

May they meet their 72 raisins soon! This should be an alarming development for the
Indian security establishment, if it is awake and not hallucinating about "Hindu terrorism" (sic).

The cryptic comment by the Syrian envoy, cautioning
about foreign funding of Mosques is also very
insightful and telling. This advice from a diplomat representing a
Muslim country will fall on deaf "secular" ears in New Delhi.

NEW DELHI: Indian-origin jihadi fighters have been found fighting along with the rebels in the raging civil war in Syria. "This is one of the reasons why we think India should play a more pro-active role, because this expanding conflict will not leave anyone untouched," said Bouthaini Shabaan, political adviser to Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad, in a conversation with TOI. She quoted UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi as saying that there were almost 38 nationalities of fighters in war-torn Syria.

"We don't want this to become a sectarian conflict," she added.
She said she had told foreign
minister Salman Khurshid that India should be wary of countries funding mosques here since Damascus was living with the consequences of such action.
