The group again decried Kazakhstan's laws banning prayer in state institutions and the wearing of headscarves and reiterated their threat. According to the islamists, actions taken against Muslims in a wave of arrests demonstrate the regime's ignorance of "political and historical awareness."
Jund al-Khilafah stated that in Taraz, where an individual shot and killed five members of Kazakhstan's security forces and two civilians and then blew himself up, the regime witnessed what "one soldier can do," and they should be prepared for more.
They added: "We have prepared for the matter, and we are ready, with permission from Allah, to continue our fight against Nazarbayev and his oppressive henchmen for long years in order to remove all oppression from the Muslim people, or die trying."
In spite of the treats the Soliders of Khilafah did not claim the responsibility for the Taraz attack.
