Recently the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) released a new video message featuring the group´s spiritual leader Abu Dharr al-Pakistani giving the Eid ul-Fitr speech in front of dozens of IMU militants somewhere in Waziristan.
The video interestingly was only released a few days ago although the Eid ul-Fitr which marks the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan took place about four weeks ago.
There is nothing significant about the new Eid ul-Fitr lecture by Abu Dharr al-Pakistani. Even the audience listening to the sermon does not seem to be any other than the usual. The two most prominent German Jihadi militants – brothers Yassin (Abu Ibrahim) and Mounir C. (Abu Adam) from Bonn – are also present during the sermon.
