Zawahiri died in Kabul at 6:18 am.

Convoy of Jihad

In September 2014, Ayman al-Zawahiri announced the creation of a regional affiliate of Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), taking advantage of sanctuaries in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

“A new branch of al-Qaeda was established in the Indian subcontinent, which is striving to raise the banner of jihad and restore Islamic rule throughout the subcontinent,” the al-Qaeda chief said.

Remarks of the Prophet

In June this year, the Zawahiri-led terror outfit issued a statement calling for suicide attacks against India in Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Mumbai and New Delhi over controversial remarks about the Prophet of Islam by suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma. Threatened to do so.

Row of hijab

In April 2022, al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri used the hijab controversy in Karnataka to target democracy in India. In a nearly 9-minute video clip released online by the terrorist organization, and verified by the US SITE intelligence group, Zawahiri appeared to confront a group of students protesting the hijab at his college in early February. But praised a college student from Karnataka.

“May Allah reward him for exposing the reality of Hindu India and the illusion of its infidel democracy,” the al-Qaeda chief said in an Arabic video clip. Addressing the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent, he said that they should realize that in the real world “there is no such thing as respect for human rights or the constitution or the law”.


In a video released in July 2019, the al-Qaeda chief called on the “Mujahideen in Kashmir” to deliver “unrelenting blows” to the Indian Army and government in Jammu and Kashmir.

Zawahiri also said that the “fighting in Kashmir” was not a separate conflict but part of the Muslim community’s “jihad against a wide array of forces” worldwide. He appealed to “nameless” scholars to push the point.

Officials then said the video was an attempt to unite disaffected terrorist ranks in the Valley.

In another video message in May this year, Zawahiri called the abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, a “slap on the face of Muslims”. Drawing parallels between Kashmir and Palestine, the terrorist leader criticized Arab countries for supporting India on the Jammu and Kashmir issue.
