Al-Qaeda declares holy war on India

Al-Qaeda declares holy war on India

A group claiming to represent Al-Qaeda has declared holy war on India because of its control over part of the disputed Kashmir region. A statement and a video were sent to a Kashmiri news agency, in Srinagar in Jammu Kashmir state.

A man is seen reading the warning. "We declare righteous holy war against India on behalf of God''.

It has previously been alleged Islamic militants fighting for the Muslim-majority in Kashmir were linked to al-Qaeda, but so far this hasn't been proved.
