US kills al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in an airstrike

New Delhi :

The US has killed Al Qaeda leader

Ayman al-Zawahiri

in a successful airstrike in Kabul city of Afghanistan.

Zawahiri's hatred for India was well known, he has issued threats to India many times.

Zawahiri and his organization tried for 'entry' in Kashmir for many years but in this they got little or no success.

Zawahiri's organization had threatened India this year as well.

Zawahiri compared the situation in Kashmir with that of Palestine in the past.

Not only this, he also criticized countries like Saudi Arabia for supporting India.  

Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, a terrorist organization affiliated with Al Qaeda, was formed in the year 2017 in Kashmir but after the elimination of terrorist Zakir Musa, this organization ceased to exist.

In 2014, Zawahiri issued the first statement regarding India while speaking on Islamic unity.

She had also issued a statement regarding the Hijab controversy in the month of April this year.

By issuing a statement in June, he had warned suicide bombers of carrying out blasts in Delhi, Mumbai and UP.

Indian officials said on Tuesday that the killing of Zawahiri could be a major setback for al-Qaeda supporters and allies in India.

He, however, expressed concern over the Taliban sheltering Zawahiri in Kabul and said such facilities may also be available to a terrorist organization that primarily targets India.

Officials privy to the developments said that Zawahiri's killing is likely to affect the morale of al-Qaeda supporters and activists in India. Recently, he was campaigning in India and rebuilding al-Qaeda's organizational system. were trying to.

He said it could also adversely affect the designs of its regional allies such as Al-Qaeda (AQIS) in the Indian subcontinent.

Officials said the very close ties between the Taliban and al-Qaeda are evident from the fact that Zawahiri was living in a posh area of ​​Kabul and this close al-Qaeda-Taliban relationship is against Indian interests.

Officials said the Taliban, which is harboring al-Qaeda, may also provide similar facilities to Pakistan-based organizations such as Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba, which primarily target India.

In addition, Indian security agencies estimate that infighting within the Taliban may intensify as the Haqqani network, believed to be very close to al-Qaeda, may seek revenge for giving information about Zawahiri to US officials.

A worrying fact before India is that if disenchanted with al-Qaeda, its members may join the Islamic State and its regional ally Islamic State-Khorasan Province (ISKP).
