Daesh claims setting up branch in Indian Kashmir

In a statement late on Friday, Daesh said the “Wilayah of Hind”, literally translated as “province of India”, was now active in the volatile Kashmir, a region which has seen years of bloody violence between the majority Muslim population and the Indian troops. The statement, released by Daesh’s Amaq News Agency, also claimed responsibility for clashes on Friday that led to casualties for Indian army in the town of Amshipora in the Shopian district of Kashmir. A Daesh militant, identified as Ishfaq Ahmad Sofi, was killed in the clashes, according to Indian officials. Daesh's announcement on establishment of the new province comes nearly a month after the terrorist group, once active in regions in Iraq and Syria, carried out massive bombings at churches in Sri Lanka, which is located south of India. More than 250 were killed in those attacks which sparked global concerns about the spread of Takfiri ideology to areas outside the Middle East. An Indian military official said on Saturday that Sofi had joined several militant groups in Kashmir before becoming a Daesh member. Indian forces had been hunting him for his suspected involvement in several grenade attacks in the region. Kashmir, India’s only Muslim-dominated state, has been gripped by decades of heavy-handed crackdown on a movement which seeks either independence or a merger with Pakistan. India, which has more than half a million troops stationed in Kashmir, has repeatedly blamed Pakistan for militancy in the region. The two nuclear-armed neighbors both claim Kashmir in its entirety and have fought two wars over the Himalayan region.

As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
