The year changes, but not the horrific face of terror. The terrorism has taken a new twist with Hamza bin Laden, the son of former al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden, vowing to avenge the killing of his father by US. Hamza is the youngest son of now dead Osama.
The Jihadi forces are posing major threats to India with venomous preachers like Zakir Naik and sectarian politicians churning out their anti-India sentiments, this threat by Hamza should also alarm the Centre and all the state governments. This danger of unleashing terror by Hamza further looms large for India.
Really, the international terrorism currently carried out by the Islamist fundamentalists too has the syndrome of “like father, like son.” As the elder Osama would frequently issue video tapes threatening of dire consequences to those countries which do not follow the Islamic faith, his son Hamza too has just released an audio message posted online that promises a Jihad or “holy war” against the US.
In his 21-minute speech posted online, the 25-years old Hamza has promised to continue the holy war of al-Qaida in the un-holiest possible ways against the US and all its allies. The speech was titled “We Are All Osama.” If all the jihadis of al-Qaida are Osamas, then there is a reason for the entire world to wake up as they can do anything anytime in any place like the one senior Osama did on September 11, 2001 in the US.
See the deadly efficacy of Osama’s jihadis, they carried out destructions in different parts of US including New York, Virginia, Arlington County, Pennsylvania, Stoneycreek and Shanksville. They destroyed the World Trade Centre, targeted The Pentagon and also the White House.
As this threat comes at a juncture when al-Qaida is trying hard to curb the influences of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), it will certainly stage a showdown in the world to prove its supremacy. If we follow the pattern of all ruthless Jehadi-infested Islamic terror outfits, we find that the indoctrinated foot soldiers of these outfits accept somebody as their supreme boss only when he stages some very daring act of destruction.
Take the cases of ISIS, Abu Sayyaf, al-Nusra Front, al-Shabaab, Taliban, Boko Haram, Hamas, Haqqani Network, Hezbollah, Hizbul Mujahideen and Muslim Brotherhood. More destructive they turn, more Jihadis across the world they attract in their outfits.
In fact, Hamza’s video made it clear that he is planning for deaths and destructions not only to avenge the death of his father and brother but also against the “oppression” of Muslims in Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine, Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and elsewhere in the world.
Hamza just cannot accept the killing of his father on May 2, 2011 in Pakistan by the US Navy SEALs and death of his elder brother Sa’ad bin-Laden by the drone strike conducted by Washington. Hamza may be baby-faced but behind the veneer, there lives a Satan. He is well-versed in the acts of terrorism.
He grew up with fighting in his blood and participated in many armed skirmishes. Way back in 2001 when Hamza was just 11, he was filmed fighting among the Talibanis. Osama had been grooming Hamza to be his heir apparent following the death of Sa’ad.
As Hamza had been appearing in a number of videos since 2001, it very clear that he is quite known in the ranks and files of al-Qaeda. In 2005 too, he was shown fighting against the Pakistani security forces in South Waziristan. It is believed that in 2007, he was given a role in al-Qaeda when he should be just 15 or 16. In 2015, Hamza asked the al-Qaeda terrorists to carry out “lone wolf” attacks across the world. He even released a special video for that and especially suggested that such “lone wolf” attacks should be carried across the cities including Paris, London, Washington, New York and Tel Aviv.
The Aghast Tale of Terrorism of 9/11
This shows that he is quite capable of unleashing the reigns of terror not only in the US but across the world. What is most dangerous, Hamza is known for evoking his fighters and jihadis of “acceleration of destruction” of the USA and its allies dotted across the globe. In other words, it means he wants to strike anywhere and everywhere that helps the US.
This al-Qaeda “new face,” youngest son of Osama, seems equally demonic as his father was. After Al-Qaida’s main leader Ayman al-Zawahiri introduced him to the terrorists, his legitimacy as the heir to Osama bin Laden further got strengthened.
