One of the Keralaites who was deported from UAE for allegedly propagating radical ideas and being sympathetic to Islamic State (IS) says that he neither had connection with IS nor propagated its ideas.
Jabir, a resident of Thiroor, in an exclusive interview to Asianet News said that he has not propagated any ideas of IS and did not even think about it.
He said that one of his friends were missing and related to that case the UAE police booked him, but he was innocent.
â€śNewspapers wrote I am related to IS and was under custody of NIA . But that was a wrong news, police held me as they doubted me in the missing case, I was jailed, but I did not do anything,â€ť he told Asianet News.
He added that he did not even share or like any of the IS posts in his Facebook.
â€śI did not share any radical posts, I donâ€™t understand how they connected me with IS. IS ideologies were not there even in my wildest thoughts,â€ť he says.
