Syed Shahid Yusuf, the son of Hizbul Mujahideen chief, Syed Salahuddin has been charged with indulging in activities that promoted terrorism in Kashmir. Yusuf who is a government employee in Budgam town of central Kashmir was arrested on charges of receiving money through international wire transfers in a bid to cause unrest in the Valley.
There has been a steep rise in the number of terrorists being recruited in Kashmir. Both the Hizbul Mujahideen and Jaish-e-Mohammad have been pursuing an active social media campaign to recruit terrorists. At least 75 per cent of the recruitments have been reported from the South Kashmir region which has four districts. The recruitments have been on the rise even as the Army launched a fresh offensive to weed out terrorists.
Srinagar/New Delhi: The days ahead for the Indian Army in Kashmir are going to be tough, but for the terrorists it would be even tougher. If one looks at the encounter that took place during the weekend, it was clear that the Army went all out to target the local cadre of the Hizbul Mujahideen who were planning Unrest 2.0 in the Valley. At least 11 out of the 12 terrorists killed were part of the Hizbul Mujahideen while the 12th was a Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist.
Among the 12 terrorists who were killed in Kashmir in separate encounters, only one was part of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. The rest were locals, part of the Hizbul Mujahideen, sources have confirmed.
Has the new Tehrik-e-Hurriyat chief’s son joined the Hizbul Mujahideen? A picture of Junaid Ahmad Sehrai, son of Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai has surfaced in which he is seen holding an assault rifle.
New Delhi: The Intelligence Bureau has warned the Indian Army about nearly 300 terrorists waiting across the border to cross over into the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Ironically the IB reports that all these terrorists are part of the Jaish-e-Mohammad which is making a hard push to unleash terror in the Valley and neighbouring states.
New Delhi: Pakistan’s ISI stood exposed yet again and this time it was called out by Zakir Musa, the head of Kashmir’s Al-Qaeda wing, Ansar Gazwat-ul-Hind. Musa who refers to the ISI as Nimrod says that many are leaving the Pakistan backed terrorist groups and joining him.
Musa who had broken away from the Hizbul Mujahideen to join the Ansar says that it is the ISI which is at work in Kashmir and are backing terrorist groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad.
It appears as though the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Hizbul Mujahideen have patched things up. Some reports in recent times had spoken about a rift between the two outfits.
Lt. General D Anbu, the GOC, Northern Command made an interesting revelation when he said that the three terror groups in the Kashmir Valley are hand in glove with each other. He said that there is no difference between the three groups and they jumping from one tanzim to another.
