    The Mumbra police have booked six men, including four identified as maulvis, for beating up a 16-year-old boy and trashing his father's car in an attempt to make him enlist to fight for terrorist group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

    Furquan Shaikh, a class X student, was attacked near his residence in Kausa area of Mumbra on January 26, three days after the six men approached the family seeking that he dedicate the rest of his life to fight for Islam, but were rebuffed by his parents.

    According to a complaint lodged by Furquan's mother Parveen Sheikh, the six waylaid the boy outside Arc Compound, where the family has a house, when he returned from a cricket practice. Parveen has told cops that they tried to drag him to a mosque nearby where they wanted him to read from Quran to prove that he is a true Muslim. Some of the men threw stones at her husband's car parked in the compound.

    When neighbours alerted Parveen, she rushed to the spot and managed to free Furquan from the assailants and bring him home. According to Parveen, the boy suffered injuries to rib cage that led to internal bleeding and was treated at Shivaji Hospital in Kalwa. She herself sustained bruises while grappling with the men.

    Parveen's complaint says that the six men first approached the family on January 22. Since she and her husband were not home, they spoke to her daughter Mahzabeen, who told them in no uncertain terms that the family did not believe in violence. The six returned on January 24 and tried to convince Parveen's husband Mohammed Shaikh, a former employee of a shipping company, telling him about the war-like situation in Iraq and Syria. They said that Furquan would be well taken care of and would be sent abroad for training. When Mohammed too told them to leave his son alone, the six accused him of not being a true Muslim and threatened to teach him a lesson.

    During their first visit on January 22, the six men, According to Parveen's complaint, had approached some other families too in the society. However, the Mumbra police have not received any other complaint apart from Praveen's.

    Parveen first lodged a police complaint on January 24 when the men threatened her husband. The complaint was turned into an FIR only after her son was attacked on January 26.

    Parveen's complaint says the men are often spotted at a mosque near their house in Kausa. While she has identified some of the men by their names in the complaint, cops refused to share them with Mumbai Mirror. "The identification is not complete yet. The names with us are what Furquan heard the six men address each other with."

    Additional Commissioner of Police, Thane, Shivaji Bodke refused to discuss the case, calling it a sensitive matter. "An FIR has been registered and investigations are on," he said. The accused have been booked for rioting, unlawful assembly, assault and molestation.

    Hasn't the pseudo-secular brigade reacted against the arrest yet?

    Is this some new form of human trafficking racket? Looks more Luke a criminal case rather than religious thing. Mumbra is a slum like subarb of mostly illegal dilapidated buildings full of poor unemplyed Muslims. It may have lot of thieves prostitutes, petty criminals etc, But I dont think it is typical Jihad factory. Could it be some kind of international racket where agents get money to supply boys to islamic state? Something like the well organized human trafficking rackets where girls are kidnapped, bought and sold into prostitution?

    India seems to have become an easy recruitement ground for ISIS. This is a worrisome development.

    Yes, that's because there are not many able-bodied youths left in Pakistan due to routine blasts, who can recruited for ISIS.

    Actually, yes. Happy recruiting. It will sort the bad apple from the good, or many bad apples at least. We can always put then down or put then inside a very black hole if they ever return from Iraq.
