US President Donald Trump has announced that ISIS leader Abu Bakr-Al Baghdadi died in a military raid. Baghdadi’s death, who inspired followers to take up violent acts in the pursuit of establishing a global caliphate, would deliver a significant blow to the organization. However, this should not bring complacency since the ideology it represents can still sway people. Although there isn’t clear evidence that ISIS has operatives in India, prudence requires that we stay cautious until there is proof to say with certainty that its influence doesn’t exist. Lowering the guard prematurely could be potentially dangerous.
