Can Al Qaeda Gain a Foothold in India?

When Al Qaeda announced in a video earlier this month that it would create an affiliate in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), reactions focused mainly on the implications for India — a country with a large Muslim population but a low rate of extremist conversion overall. Given the country’s tradition of religious pluralism (which has admittedly not always resulted in peaceful outcomes), Islamic terror groups have traditionally faced some difficulty in recruiting homegrown jihadis. Additionally, India’s domestic intelligence and law enforcements agencies have demonstrated some competency in apprehending the leaders of groups like the Indian Mujahideen. Similarly, while young jihadis from across the region rush to join the new Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Indians remain conspicuously absent from official foreign fighter tallies. In this context, it seems unlikely that AQIS will succeed within India.
