A man from Kerala deported to India recently says that many Keralaites, including Hindus, are there in the jails alleged of fake Islamic State connections.
Jabir, a resident of Tirur, Malappuram who was deported for alleged IS relations told Asianet News that almost 10 Keralaites have been jailed in UAE for alleged IS relations and many among them were Hindus.
The report says that a person from Pathanamthitta district, who was a Hindu, was in Abu Dhabi jail possibly for this same reason and that his family is still waiting for him to be deported.
Jabir revealed that he was blindfolded in jail so he was not able to speak to fellow inmates.
Earlier Jabir who was deported for alleged propagation of IS ideologies through social media had told Asianet News that he was no way related to IS and he had not propagated any ideas of IS.
