The growing threat of Isis influence in India and a possible attack has compelled the Home Ministry to hold a meeting to evaluate the issue. 

Union Home Secretary LC Goyal will chair a meeting on Saturday to discuss counter steps such as counselling of youth and monitoring social media. 

"Attraction towards radical ideology of any religion is a matter of concern. We will have to put in place a system as there are inputs that the Indian youth are attracted to different extremist ideologies, including the 'Caliphate' promoted by ISIS," a Home Ministry official told the Press Trust of india.

Those present at the meeting will be Director General of Police Home Secretaries of states such as Jammu and Kashmir, where waving of Isis flags has become a common occurrence, and Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Punjab, Delhi and Kerala, NDTV reported.

The meeting comes days after Isis documents revealed the Islamic State's plan to 'trigger a war' in India so as to have an "Armageddon-like 'end of the world'". 

"The document warns that 'preparations' for an attack in India are underway and predicts that an attack will provoke an apocalyptic confrontation with America," according to a USA Today report. 

"Even if the US tries to attack with all its allies, which undoubtedly it will, the ummah (Muslims) will be united, resulting in the final battle," it added.

In June, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) had reportedly issued notices to police forces in all states to prepare for a possible Isis attack.
