Extreme radicalization:A huge number of Indian muslims have been completely radicalized in past few decades. Your friend's numbers do not reflect the reality. I've seen clerics openly enticing anti-India and anti-kaffir sentiments. Don't be a simpleton. Read between the lines.
Sunnis can't openly prosecute Shias because of the Indian system but in small cities Shia-Sunni fights are very common. Indian media don't disclose their identity while counting dead bodies neither it may create nationwide riots.
Only reason we did not witness any terrorist attack throughout the country (except in J&K) in last five years is due to Modi government. They have given free hand to all of vigilence agencies. The previous UPA government was incredibly soft on the potential terror groups for maintaining 'communal harmony'.
Radicalization has degrees and I compared the numbers for extreme radicalization (ISIS).
ISIS in Sri Lanka:
ISIS has claimed to have inspired the current attack on Christians churches in Sri Lanka. One ex-President of Sri Lanka said shat he had warned two years back but everyone laughed at him. So they have a base in Sri Lanka.
In the deconstruction of the events, Sri Lankan government is unable / unwilling to pin role of Pakistan as the conduit to ISIS. But Pakistan's role in encouraging terror network in Sri Lankan is documented in an articles at , . You may have noticed that Govt is unable to say the place/means from which the powerful explosives were smuggled in.
Possible Seepage of NTJ from Sri Lanka into India:
NTJ, the perpetrator in Sri Lanka, has a branch in Tamil Nadu / Kerala in India for some time. While they could get some terror attacks here, but knowing off-the-record ground situations here, I can say they are likely to be quickly contained.
Now ISIS in India:
Latest is that ISIS is opening a branch in "Hind". The exact place may be either Pakistan, or India, or Bangladesh .
Opening a branch in India can also be a diversionary tactic by Pakistan's ISI of re-naming its existing terror-setups led by it because of (i) Balakot strike, (ii) naming of Masood as international terrorist, (iii) too much heat on Pakistan due to international isolation & poor economic health.
Anne Speckhard has interviewed more than 600 terrorists and their associates, including dozens of Islamic State defectors and returnees. She paints a realistic future in . The Guardian has also reviewed longer term past picture in . No country in the world can afford to be unconcerned about Radical Islam. It is a global phenomena and needs coordinated global action.
