Four IS suspects arrested in Bangladesh claim training in Pakistan

DHAKA: Bangladeshi police arrested four suspected members of Islamic State in the capital, Dhaka, on Monday, including a regional coordinator for the militant group who told police they had been trained in Pakistan.

Reports of the growing influence of Islamic State, which controls territory in Syria and Iraq, have raised alarm bells across South Asia, though it remains unclear whether militants organising under the Islamic State name in the region are acting on their own or as part of a centralised initiative coming out of the Middle East.

“We arrested them in the city early on Monday, carrying a huge number of leaflets related to militancy for training, a laptop and other materials,” Shaikh Nazmul Alam, deputy police commissioner with Dhaka’s detective and criminal intelligence division, told reporters.

The suspected coordinator, whom police identified as Mohammad Sakhawatul Kabir, told police that he and the other three men had received training in Pakistan, Alam said.

The Pakistani authorities were not immediately available for comment.

    These moderate muslims received training in, of all places, Pakistan. You know, the country that is assisting in the fight against terrorism. Pakistan. Playing both ends against the middle. The sooner that country is put on the list of terror supporting toilet bowls the better. Of course, with so many of them in Canada, can’t see that happening any time soon.

    These are fanatic muslim supremacists no doubt related to the Bangladeshi filth who collaborated in the massive atrocities committed by the occupying Dumpsterstani army against innocent Hindu and muslim people prior to independence. Their wet dream is a hallucination consisting of the conquest and slaughter of all infidels found in Northern India so a new interim sunni muslim caliphate will then arise stretching from iran to Burma.
