Stephen Tankel Discusses the Indian Mujahideen

Apr 07, 2014

The Indian Mujahideen (IM) is a loosely organized indigenous Islamist militant network. According to South Asia security specialist Stephen Tankel, the IM represents part of a larger universe of Islamist extremist entities operating inside India, many of them connected to external organizations such as the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba. 

Tankel's latest report, Jihadist Violence: The Indian Threat focused on the IM, an organization that arguably constitutes India's chief indigenous jihadist threat. Here, he discusses some of the findings of his report. You can download the publication at the Asia Program's website or at the bottom of this page.
