The dreaded Khorasan module of ISIS
The Khorasan is derived from an ancient prophecy that black flags would once again fly in the Khorasan region before the world ends. The Khorasan region in Islam consists of the medieval parts of Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and Iran.
The ISIS Khorasan module also known as Khorasan group, comprises of senior Al-Qaeda members operating in Syria. The group is reported to consist of a small number of fighters who are fighting with al-Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria. US intelligence suggests that that the organisation has gone more radical than the ISIS.
The ISIS Khorasan module was first formed in 2012, although the United States and other countries have been keeping a close watch on its development. The ISIS Khorasan module is a Salafist group and its ideology is particularly based upon Wahhabism.
The ISIS Khorasan branch has claimed responsibility for the attack on the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Pakistan killing at least 75 people. Reports suggest that a group of Taliban operatives and a large number of Pakistani’s have pledged their allegiance to ISIS and formed the Khorasan Shura (Khorasan advisory).
The current leader of ISIS Khorasani group is Mohammed Islambouli and deputy in command are Sanafi al-Nasr, Mushsin al-Fadhli, Abu Khayr al-Masri. Some of these leaders have earlier served the Al Qaeda under the leadership of Osama Bin Laden. The headquarter of ISIS Khorasan module is based upon Bawabiyah, Aleppo and their area of operation is mostly Northwestern Syria.
