Q. The ‘Base Movement’, recently seen in the news, seeks to:

Answer: Create awareness about and resist increasing attacks on members of the Muslim community

The Base Movement, a little known outfit, linked to the five low intensity blasts on court premises in South India, wanted to resist the attacks on members of the Muslim community and make their voice heard.

Though the name – Base Movement – was inspired by Al Qaeda, the Islamic militant organisation, the group didn’t want to carry out lethal attacks. It started its operations in 2015.
