Iraqis screwed but Khilafah restored

The pious lot have done it again. After destroying Syria; a war is being waged on Iraq's ancient heritage. Death, disease and food shortage is fast catching up with Iraq's second biggest city-Mosul. Though as per Praveen Swami, nearby UNHRC run refugee camps in Kurd controlled regions are still better off than Delhi's slums!    

Not satisfied with their grand territorial achievements, ISIS has taken the next step and renamed itself Islamic State (not confined to any country) and on first day of Ramadan, announced a Caliphate with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as "the caliph"- leader for Muslims everywhere. Some believe this may cause divisions in Jihadist circles as boys with higher personal ambitions may refuse to work under the new Caliph. Nevertheless, for the time being, there seems to be lots of excitement in Jihadi circles. 

Boys closer home also seem to be excited



PS: Going by social media feeds, ISIS boys seem to be way more hiphop than their boring desi cousins-Taliban. Lots of young 'educated' recruits from western/globetrotter circles running the show.
