Can India survive an ISIS infiltration?
As the looming threats of ISIS infiltration into India from Pakistan in the North and Bangladesh in the East continue to grow, it raised serious concerns over India’s national security at the highest level.
The report came to a head after the recent interrogation and revelation of an alleged JMB (Jammat-UI-Mujahideen Bangladesh), Mohammed Mosiuddin, who was arrested in July 2016 from Burdwan, West Bengal.
According to news sources, India authorities obtained information that, JMB who had claimed responsibility for the Dhaka Bakery Attack, have plans that go beyond targeting foreigners at Kolkata’s Mothers house and lone wolf attacks in Srinagar.
Reports reveal that JMB intends to establish a Caliphate in Bangladesh and publicizing the presence of ISIS in India and recruiting for the Jihadist cause. It wants to also coordinate with Pakistan based groups like Lashkar e Taiba and Jaish e Mujahideen to launch attacks in eastern and southern India, where Mosiuddin was based; NDTV.
The problem is further exacerbated as the last strong hold of ISIS is being taken down in Mosul- Iraq and Raqqa-Syria by allied forces, experts say that hundreds of fleeing militants are returning to Southeast Asia and only a few of them identified. While there are growing concerns that the returnees may continue their ideological battle with the help of local or home grown extremist such as JMB, more are expected to make their way back to the region.
Although, the Prime Minister of India and Prime Minister of Bangladesh met to discuss this common ground threats of terrorism and vowed to tackle the problem together, they are still left without advanced tools to help tackle the menace of these sophisticated operations.
WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING
Brain Fingerprinting technology can be used on returning ISIS fighters, JMB and other suspect Jihadist group in India to gather organizational intelligence and possible targets. The system can also help to identify knowledge of bomb making or IEDS, which could point to level of sophistication of the suspect.
The technology does not require the suspect to tell the truth or not. It detects knowledge on specific information whether “present” or “absent.”
As terror groups appear to be growing and Jihadi operations becoming more elaborate, India authority needs more sophisticated tools and strong legislation to hedge these operatives immediately before it becomes too late.
Brain Fingerprinting is the most advanced investigative and intelligence gathering tool that the India law enforcement and intelligence community needs to help counter the imminent threat of terrorism to prevent collateral damage to lives and property.
