As per a recent report published by News18.com, at least three youngsters in Kerala have been suspected to have joined the Islamic State (IS). The three are believed to be radicalized into the Salafist ideology at Attikkad village near Neelambur Forests in Malappuram District.
The missing trio — Abdul Rahid Abdualla and Hafesuddin from Kasaragod, and Easa from Palakkad — are believed to be a part of the IS network. As per the report, nearly 200 people (Dammaj Salafi Sect) living in 50 houses kept themselves away from modernity and recreated a true Islamic ambiance at Attikkad. Beyond following true Salafis, they devoted themselves to imitate life in the times of the Prophet himself.
The Attikkad village is completely apolitical and dominated by a non-polluting plainness. The village lacks the existence of modern education, phones, and TV gadgetry. After this came to light, intelligence agencies are trying to find any links between Attikkad and Islamic State.
Reports also throw light on how the villagers are leading a secluded life to recreate a Prophet age in the jungles. They are also trying to start a goat farm to replicate life in Arabia in the 7th century.
