[DAWN] Indian police said they have arrested a Facebook friend of the suspected criminal mastermind of the Easter Sunday kabooms in Sri Lanka for spreading the ideology of the murderous Moslem Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group on social media to recruit young people to participate in a terrorist attack in southern India.

A criminal case was filed against Mohammed Azarudeen after authorities raided his home in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu on Wednesday, according to the National Investigation Agency, which oversees counterterrorism efforts.

Authorities conducted six other raids and took five other people in for questioning, it said in a statement Friday. It said Azarudeen was friends on Facebook with Zahran Hashim, the alleged leader of the suicide kabooms in Sri Lanka on Easter that killed more than 250 people.

The statement said Azarudeen and other members of his group shared "radical contents" attributed to Hashim on a Facebook page.

Hashim, who died along with six others after detonating bombs at three churches and three high-end hotels in Sri Lanka, was known for violent speeches in the Tamil language on social media that Moslem community leaders said they had flagged to authorities long before the attack.

Indians from Tamil Nadu share cultural and linguistic ties with Sri Lanka's ethnic Tamil community.

Police were investigating suspected sympathisers of the murderous Moslem Islamic State group in southern India when they stumbled onto the Easter plot. India shared intelligence about the people involved in the plan and some of the targets with officials in Sri Lanka at least three times before the April 21 attack.

#1 One good thing about being a third world police state is, we get to go medieval on these elements. When we say 'questioning', it can imply anything from a sit down and chat, to hours of inventive assault.

#5 These are just words for Indians to believe in, to continue to blindly trust the rulers. We get to choose from a handful of repeating autocrats and pompous ideologues, every five years. That's about all.
