Dhaka, July 6: International terrorist group Islamic State has released a video on Wednesday calling for jihad in Bangladesh said the attack on Bangladesh was ‘revenge’.
Threatening more attacks on “crusaders” and “crusader nations”, the video believed to be issued from Raqqa in Bangla was first found in an IS-affiliate website and then released on YouTube early on Wednesday.
Three of the speakers in the video are of Bangladesh origin, but they could not be identified immediately.
“We will not stop until Shariah law is established all over the world,” one speaker said. “The jihad that has come to Bangladesh now has been promised by Prophet Mohammed.”
“We don’t have anything to lose,” he added.
Describing the current form of democracy as a ‘Shirk or unforgivable crime’, he added, “Don’t you know that it gives power to people to enforce law and have power whereas the power belongs to Allah only?”
Terming the government as kafir, the second speaker said, “The government has changed Allah’s law and has imposed man-made law. They are all ‘Kafirs’ now. It is our religious duty to fight against it.”
“The Holey Artisan incident is our revenge for the countless Muslims who were killed,” he said.
The third speaker urged everyone to join the jihad.
