Hizbul holds meeting in Srinagar, releases poster threatening Kashmiri girls
After challenging the security forces to stop them, terrorist organisation Hizbul Mujahideen Jammu and Kashmir reportedly held a meeting in Srinagar and discussed how to recruit new people including girls.
Terrorists from Hizbul, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror groups participated in the meeting, as claimed by Hizbul in a letter. In light of the recent developments, security forces have reportedly sounded an alert in the city.
In fact, a photograph of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Umar alias Hanzalla posing in front of Ghanta Ghar (Clock town) at Lal Chowk in Srinagar surfaced on Thursday, with reports suggesting that the picture was taken on Tuesday.
Hanzalla is the most wanted militant active in South Kashmir’s Kulgan for the last five years.
Hizbul Mujahideen has also reportedly released a letter in which they claimed that 16 of their commanders had attended the meeting, which they were able to hold “without any obstacle” from Indian security forces. They added that they would also release a video of the meeting, which took place at Hazratbal Shrine, soon.
According to Hizbul linked social media sites, the command council’s meeting was led by Riyaz Naikoo on Wednesday.
In the letter, Hizbul alleged that the meeting was 47 hours long, in which they discussed their strategies to fight the security forces. The terrorist outfit said that apart from Hizbul militants, four LeT terrorists and 4 JeM militants also attended in the meeting, which was headed by Hizbul’s Valley operational commander, Riyaz Naikoo (Mohammad Bin Qasim) and deputy chief Saifullah (Musaib Ul Islam).
Notably, last year, the Jammu and Kashmir Police had announced a bounty of Rs 10 lakh for information on Umar, also known as Umer Majid, who has been accused of killing seven people including five policemen at Kulgam in May 2017.
However, Air News India independently cannot verify the veracity of the image and the quote going viral.
The terrorists have also released a poster threatening Kashmiri girls to leg shot them if they will upload their videos of dancing on social media .
