Of late, Hajin, which was dwelling to previous Kashmiri renegades (surrendered terrorists) in the late 90s and who killed terrorists and civilians with impunity, has now turned into a person of the secure havens for Pakistani terrorists. Sources claimed, about a dozen Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists based in Bandipora’s Hajin have been indoctrinating regional youth to struggle versus India in the title of Islam and Islamic martyrdom. 14-12 months-previous Mudasir Rashid Parray and 17-12 months-aged Saqib Bilal have been their principal targets.
Even so, SSP Bandipora Sheikh Zulfikar Aazad disputed their age, boasting that Mudasir was 16 and Saqib 20.
Mudasir was largely affected by top Lashkar commanders, Abu Zargam and Abu Fanan as early as 2014 when he was performing as an overground employee for them, his good friend Aadil Dar (title transformed), a meat seller of Hajin explained to the TOI. A hardened stone-pelter, Parray, would generally hoist Pakistani flags in the Hajin town any time there was an anti-India protest in the district, his buddy mentioned.
Questioned by the law enforcement on the rates of stone-pelting in 2014, 2016 and June 2018, Mudasir picked up the gun and joined Lashkar-e-Taiba in August this year, sources mentioned. He was hugely influenced by the slain Pakistani Lashkar commander Mehmood Bhai, when he made use of to operate as courier boy for the outfit in 2014.
Aadil mentioned Mudasir was drawn in direction of militancy when he was just 10 decades old. He would be in constant contact by Pakistani Lashkar terrorists. “His mothers and fathers ended up fed up with his conduct even though he acquired his livelihood by aiding me at my store,” Aadil stated.
Enrolled in course ninth at Hajin federal government large university, Mudasir mainly performed truant and spent time in the business of Pakistani Lashkar militants specifically Ali Bhai. “They would activity him to carry weapons and other matters from a single spot to a further earlier. His mom Fareeda sent him to his maternal uncle’s household at Sopore to retain him away from the terrible organization of terrorists. But his terrorist good friends named him and asked him to formally sign up for the group and do jihad,” Mudasir’s close friends and acquaintances in the village mentioned.
SSP Bandipora mentioned Mudasir was brainwashed by Pakistani terrorist Ali Bhai. Mudasir in flip persuaded 17-calendar year-aged Saqib Bilal to sign up for the terror group. Even though Saqib was also inclined towards ‘jihad’ but he was not as hardcore as Mudasir, he explained. Mudasir and Saqib were being deputed to function with Ali Bhai. All a few were being killed at Mujgund in the outskirts of Srinagar.
Though Lashkar supporters have been fast paced placing up a display at the funeral of the two young regional terrorists, Mudasir and Saqib, Fareeda was inconsolably wailing at her tin shed property. Rashid Parray, Mudasir’s father who not too long ago have had surgical treatment in the again and his youthful daughter had been huddled in the same tin drop. Saqib’s mom, even so, mentioned that she was very pleased of her son’s “martyrdom”.
Enormous amount of villagers from the adjacent areas of Bandipora and Hajin participated in the funeral of the youthful terrorists. Substantial pitched professional-Pakistan and anti-India slogans reverberated at the funeral. Dozens of youth clashed with protection forces and threw stones on them.
