NIA arrests two in Hyderabad for aligning with ISIS 13.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The NIA on Sunday arrested two alleged ISIS sympathisers from Hyderabad. The Hyderabad-based youths, Mohammed Abdullah Basith (24) and Mohammad Abdul Qhadeer (19) were arrested for pledging allegiance with ISIS and planning to carry out terror attacks in India. Basith had undergone several rounds of deradicalisation over the last four years. He had made two previous attempts to join the ISIS, but was intercepted and sent for deradicalisation. Basith got lured to the ISIS believing he will go to heaven. In 2014, Basith was in his third year of a computer engineering course, when he made an attempt to join the ISIS. His sister too allegedly wanted to accompany him to Syria. Basith then had said they were given a contact in Bangladesh by their handlers who used to communicate with them through Skype and telegram. "I got inspired by the idea of Jihad after watching online videos. Soon I was in touch with people on FB who were directing me how to reach Syria," he said. The NIA stated in January 28, 2016 that ...

Gaza ceasefire holds after two-day flare-up, protests expected 10.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Israel-Gaza border was quiet on Friday after an Egyptian-brokered truce ended a surge in violence that had shaken southern Israel and the Gaza Strip for two days. But the ceasefire will face its first test later in the day, as Palestinians in Gaza planned on resuming weekly border protests, which at times have become violent. After a quiet night, Israel's military told residents in the south, who had spent much of the past two days in rocket shelters, they could return to their daily routines. A rise in cross-border rockets and air strikes in recent weeks has prompted the United Nations and Egypt to try to broker a truce to prevent another all-out conflict. Since the escalation on Wednesday, Palestinian militants fired scores of rockets including a long-range missile deep into Israel and Israeli aircraft struck more than 150 targets in Gaza. A pregnant Palestinian woman and her 18-month-old child were killed in the Israeli attacks, as was a Hamas militant. Seven people were wounded by Palestinian ...

British-Bangladeshi teacher walks out of jail after acquittal in Dhaka cafe attack 9.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
A former British-Bangladeshi teacher on Thursday walked out of jail following his acquittal in the 2016 Dhaka cafe attack case nearly two years after his arrest in the brazen terror assault in which 22 people, including an Indian girl, were killed. Former North South University teacher Hasnat Rezaul Karim and his family were at the Holey Artisan Cafe and Bakery on July 1, 2016 when five militants with assault rifles and machetes stormed the popular cafe in the capital's posh Gulshan neighbourhood. Hasnat, a 49-year-old British national of Bangladeshi origin, was among the several other diners released by the terrorists in the early morning of July 2 before the army stormed it. Hasnat, though apparently a hostage during the attack, had been kept under close watch since the day. Police detained him in August 2016 under Section 54 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which allows making arrest without a warrant. One of the five attackers killed in the raid to free the hostages was also found to be a student ...

Australia strips citizenship from Islamic State supporters 9.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Five former dual nationals have been stripped of their Australian citizenship due to their involvement with the Islamic State group overseas, a government minister said today. A total of six people have now lost their Australian citizenship since the law was changed in 2015 to enable dual nationals to lose their citizenship rights for actions contrary to their allegiance to Australia, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said. "I can confirm that five more individuals have ceased to be Australian citizens because of their involvement with Islamic State offshore," Dutton said in a statement. Dutton did not identify the five. The Daily Telegraph newspaper in Sydney said they were three men and two women who had flown to Syria and Iraq to join Islamic State group fighters. It is not clear when they travelled to the Middle East and when they lost their citizenship. Australia Broadcasting Corp. said they were aged in their 20s and 30s and might not be aware that they were no longer Australian. Intelligence ...
