“It sounds as if there are at least two Malayali Taliban here- one who says “samsarikkette” around the 8-second mark and another who understands him”, tweeted Tharoor.

Tharoor was sharing the video posted by a journalist, named Ramees, on his Twitter account.

In the meantime, Ramees replied that no Malayalis were among the terrorists in the video.

“There are no Kerala origin fighters in rank and file of Taliban. They are baloch from Zabul province who speak brahvi which is widely spoken among the baloch tribes, its a dravidian language very similar to Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam etc”, Ramees replied for the tweet of Tharoor.

Tharoor had also given a reply to the latest comment of Ramees over his post.

“Interesting explanation. Will leave it to the linguists to figure this one out. But there have indeed been misguided Malayalis who joined the Taliban, so that possibility cannot be ruled out entirely”, justified Tharoor.
