Srinagar: In a 19-minute long video released by so-called Islamic State, PM Narendra Modi among other leaders has been portrayed as someone who is working against the interests of Muslims, a media report said on Tuesday.
The video, titled Cross Shield, called for attacks on Turkey as it showed Turkish President Recep Erdogan with different leaders including PM Modi, Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and Pope Francis among others, the report added.
On Sunday, a gunman dressed as Santa Claus had opened fire in a nightclub in Istanbul, Turkey, killing 39 people. The responsibility for the attack was later claimed by IS. The video was posted online just days before the attack took place.
The video criticises Erdogan for Turkey’s involvement in Syria, which has witnessed widespread destruction as rebels and President Bashar al-Assad’s forces clashed with each other to gain control, the report said.
The video ends with a footage of two Turkish soldiers being burnt alive by the IS terrorists. A similar video was released a year ago calling Erdogan a traitor.
