London: "The jihadi wave has reached new heights in India" as a result of current developments in West Asia, according to M.K. Narayanan, former Indian national security advisor and until recently the governor of West Bengal.

Narayanan was delivering a talk at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), wherein he explained a section of the youth were finding the "new version of jihad" as esposed by Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria, its announcement of a Khalifat, the purity of Islam it talks about, "very attractive".

He added: "It has changed the mindset of those inclined."

He estimated at least 100-150 Indians have signed up to fight for IS.

"The figure could be much higher," he concluded. "Many," he said, "were professionals, like engineers, not deprived people."
