A group claiming to represent the al-Qaida terror network declared a holy war on India because of its control over part of Kashmir, Indian officials said Saturday, adding that they were taking the threat seriously. A statement and a video were sent Friday to the Kashmiri news agency, Current News Service, in Srinagar, the main city in India's Jammu-Kashmir state. In the video, a masked man standing next to an automatic weapon read the warning. "We declare righteous holy war against India on behalf of God the great in which Jammu and Kashmir will be the launch pad for holy war in India," said the statement, signed by Abu Abdul Rehman al-Ansari, purportedly the chief of al-Qaida Fil Hind, or al-Qaida in India.
