Islamic State has reportedly chosen Bangladesh as its base in South Asia for its geographic position, and the radical group wants to carry out attacks in India from here.

The Indian media on Thursday reported the threat IS made in the latest issue of its propaganda magazine Dabiq the day before.
According to the Hindustan Times, the magazine published an interview of Shaykh Abu Ibrahim al-Hanif, the so-called chief of IS fighters in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh is an important region for the IS’s so-called caliphate and global jihad due to its “strategic geographic position”, Hanif said in the interview, according to the Hindustan Times.
India is not on the list of a number of countries, including some in Europe, that have suffered IS attacks.
The group based in Iraq and Syria has claimed credit for several attacks in Bangladesh, including the murders of foreigners and attacks on Shias and Ahmadiyyas.
The government and the security forces have denied activities of the group in the country.
