Ram Ohri’s latest book, Global War Against Kaffirs: Rise of The Islamic State, deals with the threat posed by the ISIS and assorted Islamic outfits to the nation of Bharat, especially the Hindu identity of Bharat. It takes the reader into the chilling world of the newly formed Caliphate, its bloody history and brazen bid for world domination. The author warns the strategic analysts and police and army officers about the threat posed by the most ruthless menace they might have to face in the years ahead. The high-decibel emphasis on use of social media for attracting and training the Muslim youth for global holy war has been responsible for fast-paced growth of the ISIS.
The difficult-to-put-down book chronicles the Islamic State’s doctrine of seeking victory by staging awesome momentous attacks, advocated by Abu Bakr Naji in his tactical tome, ‘Management of Savagery’. Naji’s thesis for winning Islam’s holy war is no longer confined to the ISIS. It has become the standard operating procedure adopted by several militant Islamic outfits across the world, including those floated by Pakistan. In his online tome published in 2004 Naji had advocated recourse to spectacular attacks on enemies of Islam for attracting the faithful to join the global jihad. The emphasis on staging spectacular attacks, called tarbiya bil-ahadath in Arabic, was faithfully reflected in the 9/11 attack on twin towers, the targeting of Bharat’s Parliament in December, 2001, and the gruesome Mumbai carnage of 26 November, 2008. The recent attacks on Pathankot Airbase and storming of the Bharatiya Army camps in Uri and Nagrota cantonment by Pakistan-sponsored fidayeens are copycat examples of the use of the doctrine of savagery.
Additionally, Abu Bakr Najihas emphasized the need for creating enclaves of vexation and exhaustion controlled by the faithful to outwit and overwhelm the enemy by pushing him into the abyss of fatigue and weariness. These enclaves are popularly known as ‘no-go’ zones where the police and non- Muslims cannot enter without facing stiff resistance from gangs of rowdies and rioters. Molenbeek in Belgium from where attacks on France were organized in November, 2015, is a classic example of a no-go area where a police car has to be followed by one more vehicle carrying another armed detachment to protect the first police car!
Among other things, the author has drawn attention of the police and security forces to the ultra-clever tactics prescribed in the e-book, ‘Black Flags from the Islamic State’, for massive upgradation of the combat efficiency of fidayeens by making them go through an exceptionally tough training regimen. The dicey role of fifth-columnists embedded by the ISI of Pakistan for subverting Bharat and the umbilical connection between the ongoing Kashmir militancy and global jihad has also been discussed threadbare by the author.
The book analyses the far reaching geo-strategic changes in West Asia and Afghanistan and their future impact across Pakistan, Bharat and Bangladesh. It analyses the rapid fire spread of the ideology of the Islamic State from West Asia to Europe, Africa, Caucasus in Russia and Mindnao and Sulu islands in the faraway Philippines.
The Global War Against Kaffirs, is a ‘must read’ book about Tomorrow and the Day after. It warns the security experts and police officers about the geopolitical threats which Bharat will have to face in the years ahead!
The above highlights of the book Global War Against Kaffirs: Rise of The Islamic State were shared with HinduPost along with the invitation.
It is vital that our security forces are made aware of the ideological threat facing our nation and civilization. Even ordinary citizens need to be made aware of the dangers which we face. The alarming rise of IS supporters across Bharat is evident in the number of IS terror cells busted by security agencies just this year – something which HinduPost has been tracking.
Books like these and experts like Sh. Ram Kumar Ohri (IPS) should be essential reading for anyone concerned with the safety & security of Bharat. Unlike UPA era, when Islamist hate preachers like Zakir Naik were afforded state protection and hailed as ‘modern face of Islam’ by media hosts like Shekhar Gupta, it is good to see a current MP like Dr. Satyapal Singh attend this book release.
But more needs to be done, and such books and discussions should be made an integral part of security training for police and paramilitary forces across the nation.
