Amidst the ongoing controversy over the hijab in different parts of India including Karnataka, now the global terrorist organization Al Qaeda has entered. On Tuesday, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri encouraged Indian Muslims to respond to “this persecution”.
In the nine-minute video, which was checked by Site Intelligence Group, Zawahiri praised Muskan Khan, a college student from Karnataka. Let us tell you that Zawahiri took over the command of Al Qaeda from terrorist Osama bin Laden.
Significantly, a video of Muskan Khan in the hijab case went viral on social media, in which she entered the college wearing a hijab and was also protesting against a group wearing a saffron cap and shouting “Jai Shri Ram”. She was ‘God’. He is seen raising slogans of ‘Hu Akbar’.
According to a report, Al Qaeda has shared a video titled ‘Great Woman of India’. The jihadi terrorist said that he came to know about Muskan Khan from the video and social media and was so impressed by the slogan “Ek sister” and “Takbir ke” that he decided to write a poem in her praise.
After reciting the poem, Zawahiri attacked countries that banned the hijab, along with Pakistan and Bangladesh. He accused these countries of being “allies of the West”. This is Zawahiri’s first video since November and according to Muskan Khan is not only one of the “most wanted” jihadi terrorists, but is also actively involved in contemporary affairs.
In 2020, Zawahiri was reported to have died of natural causes, but months later an unidentified video surfaced that he was alive. Sources say that he is based somewhere in Afghanistan.
