Inputs in the circular
The circular said, “Input received from sister agency about the planning of Pak-ISI to target individuals, including RSS cadres and army areas in other places in India and threat from global terror outfits to indulge in spectacular action by resorting to an explosion of bombs/IEDs in places of mass gathering/mass transport/religious places, etc.”
“The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) released a statement regarding the Dhalpur eviction in a Twitter thread, condemning the systematic persecution and violence ramped up against the Muslim community in Assam, claiming lives of Muslims during protests against eviction drive of hundreds of Muslim families from the state,” the circular further said.
