Shia outfit announces reward of Rs 1 crore on ISIS, Taliban chief

Shia outfit has announced a reward of Rs one crore each for the killing of the chiefs of ISIS, al-Qaeda, Jamaat-u-Dawa, Taliban and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.

Lucknow: After al-Qaeda's announcement of formation of an Indian wing, an organisation of Shia Muslims has announced a reward of Rs one crore each for the killing of the chiefs of ISIS, al-Qaeda, Jamaat-u-Dawa, Taliban and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen.

"At the meeting of our all India executive on September 6, we discussed the matter of putting reward on killing of these five persons heading five organisations involved in terrorism. The resolution was unanimously passed. We will give the reward to those who kill them," Secretary General of All India Shia Hussaini Fund (AISHF) Syed Hasan Mehdi said.

He said that the organisation will collect Rs five crore for elimination of ISIS chief Abu Bakr Baghdadi, al-Qaeda chief al-Zawahiri, Jamaat-u-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, Taliban chief Mullah Umar and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen chief Azhar Masood.

"We are putting posters across the country including Lucknow, Hyderabad and Jammu and Kashmir to announce the reward as we feel that these terrorists do not deserve to live. They are killers of humanity and innocent persons of all the castes," Mehdi said.

When asked about the source of the fund, Mehdi said there were over five crore Muslims and they would readily contribute for the cause.
