Jihad can be waged from jail too and this was a startling revelation made by a highly radicalised Islamic State operative lodged in the Alipore jail of West Bengal. A warden of the jail was admitted to hospital in a critical condition after the operative Mohammad Masiuddin alias Musa hit him with a stone and slit throat.
This is 2017 and not 1990. Pakistan does want to give the impression the uprising in Kashmir is similar to the ones in the 1990s, but in reality that is not the case. The security forces are more aggressive today and with the Doval doctrine and an iron fisted policy, Pakistan will find it hard to play the 1990 game in 2017.
The NIA also said in the chargesheet that it was Musa who had waved the flag of the ISIS at a congregation held at Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir in May 2016.
