Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri in a video released through its media wing “As Sahab” has asked the global Muslim community or Ummah to adopt prominent jihadist leaders as role models.
The video statement is episode five of the series titled “Deal of the Century or Crusades Spanning Centuries.”
Experts in terrorist groups say that the video calling for the veneration of past and present jihadists is not only going to spark off Islamic radicalization but has also raised terror threat levels in the world.
Zawahiri’s earlier videos in the series had focused on criticizing Arab leaders and “educating” Muslims with the Al Qaeda ideology.
This month Zawahiri also called for jihad against India and Bangladesh for defend the Holy Prophet and threaten to launch suicide attacks in key Indian cities.
Intelligence inputs indicate that Zawahiri is currently based in Afghanistan, though the Taliban regime denies it and says that the terror kingpin is in Iran.
But the fact that is not hidden from anyone is that with the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan, Al Qaeda’s core leadership has strengthened with the terror group armed with the latest weapons, explosives and night vision devices left by the US-led coalition forces on August 15, 2021.
Since then, these groups have begun to attract extremist cadres in preparation for launching terrorist operations around the world, and so far there is nothing to deny the cessation of Qatari-Turkish funding for terrorist groups, which warns that this calm may be caused a terrorist storm that threatens the security of many countries and societies.
Despite the stagnation of traditional terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS did not hide itself and appeared strongly in Afghanistan, under the name “Islamic State of Khorasan Province.”
The strength of the organization has developed significantly, after the release of its main leaders from prisons with the beginning of the Taliban’s assumption of power, as well as the weaponization of the latest weapons, which allowed the organization to target the Taliban itself, and this happened several times after the American withdrawal.
With the growing activity of al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in some countries through their proxies, it is expected that extremism and terrorism will increase exponentially, which calls on the civilized world countries not to disregard it lightly and to equip anti-terror agencies, to repel any potential terrorist attack in any country, in order to protect the lives of civilians who have always been the primary target of terrorists in any operation they carry out.
