What is Al Qaeda’s Uttar Pradesh connection
Al Qaeda announced the 2014 India Subcontinent. Intelligence agencies later revealed that the head of the Al Qaeda India subcontinent is a resident of Sambhal in Uttar Pradesh, whose name is Maulana Aseem Umar. Long ago Asim Umar shifted to Pakistan which later joined Al Qaeda. A few years ago, Maulana Asim Umar was killed by Afghan agencies in Afghanistan.
But the sleeper cells of Al Qaeda have been continuously caught from UP. All agencies including Delhi Police are involved in catching them.
