The Hurriyat leadership and several leaders from Congress, National Conference, etc. have always claimed that the Hurriyat is in no way involved in terrorism in the state and play a leadership role to keep the Kashmiris united. Even last month, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyer met Hurriyat leaders to discuss “peace”.
“The involvement of a terrorist in a normal Friday Namaz shows how these terrorists are very well supported by the local population”
In an investigation into the background of 3 Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists killed on Wednesday (12th July 2017) morning, revealed some extremely shocking facts.
One of the 3 terrorists who was killed was one Sajid Ahmad Gilkar. As soon as his name was reported as one of the terrorists, certain sources in the Jammu and Kashmir police revealed some startling facts to us.
Sajid instigated lynching of Dy SP Ayyub Pandith
Sources in the Jammu and Kashmir police force revealed to us that Sajid Ahmad Gilkar was the one who incited the mob lynching against Deputy Superintend of J&K Police Mohammad Ayyub Pandith. On 23rd June 2017, a raging mob beat up the police officer because they thought he was a Hindu who was spying on them.
This comes as a massive blow to both the Hurriyat and the local Kashmiri population who have claimed for long that they have no relations with the terrorists. The involvement of a terrorist in a normal Friday Namaz shows how these terrorists are very well supported by the local population.
How does this nail Hurriyat?
Mohammad Ayyub Pandith was beaten to death outside the Jamia Mosque in Srinagar. This Mosque is the centre of all Hurriyat activity. In fact, the Imam of the Mosque is none other than the Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has several times denied the role of Hurriyat in terrorism.
As demand for a blanket ban on the Hurriyat is increasing day by day, it remains to be seen whether the Government will take cognizance of this incident and proceed to ban the organization and proceed to take action against them for nurturing terrorists in their mosques.
