Islamic terrorism is on the rise in Kerala with international terrorist organisations like ISIS and Al-Qaeda expanding their presence in the state.
A group of students with alleged links with Kerala-based Islamist outfits, hoisted flags of Islamic terrorist organisations in the campus of CH Muhammad Koya Memorial College, Varkala in Thiruvananthapuram district. They also carried out a rally shouting slogans, terrorising the campus.
Video footage released by Janam TV featured students holding flags of terrorist organisations and rallying in solidarity with terrorist outfits. Students also spotted wearing ‘terrorist costumes’ in the video. The channel also released visuals of graffiti glorifying Osama bin Laden. The group has also hoisted the flags of Al-Qaeda.
The graffiti found on the walls of the toilet complex inside the campus feature writings in praise of banned terror outfits and Islamic terrorists like Laden. Even though it has been two months since the incident took place, the college management has not initiated any action against the accused.
The intelligence agencies are taking stock of the development. Meanwhile, the Kerala Police have started an inquiry into the incident. DGP Loknath Bahra informed that an investigation team under IG Manoj Abraham has been entrusted with the inquiry.
