Jihadist Violence: The Indian Threat

January 23, 2014 // 4:00pm5:15pm



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. This event marks the release of a new Wilson Center publication, written by Tankel, on the IM--an organization that arguably constitutes India’s chief indigenous jihadist threat.
