Terrorists from Pakistan who come into India carry a kit with them. The kit contains, ammunition, food, water and communication devices.
However, today the norm is to compulsorily carry a note along with them which reads, "we condemn the hanging of Afzal Guru."While letters regarding Afzal Guru were found during an attack at Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan, similar notes were also discovered at Pathankot as well. Now investigators have found more such letters while probing the attack on a police post at Rajbagh in Kathua, Jammu which took place on March 20, 2015.
The Afzal Guru Squad:
More such letters were found during the investigation into the Pathankot attack as well as the one at Samba on March 21, 2015. The messages are similar and it says the attack is due to the hanging of Afzal Guru.
Further all the letters have been signed by the Afzal Guru Squad. It is a clear indicator that Pakistan based groups are trying to raise the Afzal Guru bogey and ensure that he turns into an icon in Kashmir.
In the 1980s the same groups used the name of JKLF founder Maqbool Bhat and ensured that there was a huge uprising in Kashmir in 1989. Today they are using the name of Afzal Guru.
Investigators say that there is a pattern to it. The Afzal Guru Squad is a creation of the Pakistan based terrorist groups. It is not an individual outfit. These could be members of the Jaish-e-Mohammad or the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
While on one hand these groups are trying to convey a message using the name of Afzal Guru on the other there is an attempt to raise his name in different parts of India.
The Afzal Guru related protests that have taken place at JNU and Jadavpur are all part of the plan to make him into an icon and use his name to ensure that there is another uprising in Kashmir, officials say.
