At a time when the new Indian dispensation is showing signs of resuming dialogues with Pakistan, terror organisations like Jamat-ud-Dawa and Hizbul Mujahideen, responsible for fanning terrorism in Kashmir and other parts of India, are chalking out new ideas to spread terror in the Valley. Raising serious concerns over India's security, such radical groups are now reaching out to global militant groups to join their cause of freeing Kashmir and also teaching its cadres to learn from their past mistakes.

Hizbul trying to globalise Kashmir issue:

In a latest, chairman of the United Jihad Council (UJC) and supreme commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, Syed Salahuddin, has attempted to link the separatist violence in Kashmir with pan-Islamic jihad in Syria and Iraq.

"If Al Qaeda, Taliban or any other organisation or country extends a helping hand to the oppressed Kashmiris, we will welcome it," Salahuddin said at a gathering on Sunday in Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Threat to India:

This raises a serious concern towards India's security, because so far there are no intelligence reports of direct involvement of terrorists from organisations like al-Qaeda, Taliban or jihadis from war torn Syria, Iraq in India. Reports are coming about Indian jihadis associating with global terror organisations in Iraq, Syria and such welcome calls from Pakistan-based Islamists to join their cause in Kashmir will make matters worse for India.

Terrorists pressurising Pakistan to support their cause:

The Kashmiri Mujahideen leader, Salahuddin, was also reported mounting pressure over Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by asking him to avoid showing a ‘unilateral tilt' towards his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. Salahudin asserted that Pakistan was legally bound to materially support the struggling Kashmiris.

"Nawaz Sharif should show consideration for the feelings and sacrifices of Kashmiris. His unilateral tilt towards Modi and exchange of letters and saris is hurting Kashmiris and impairing their cause," Hizbul's supreme commander said.

LeT's evil plan revealed:

As per another report, terror outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is also planning to exploit the loopholes in the Indian judicial system. A new diktat from the Lashkar ‘masters', sitting across the border, instructs it's cadres to claim to be juveniles, when caught, to escape punishments as per Indian Penal Code.

Details of this nefarious LeT tactic was given by arrested Mohd Naveed Jutt alias Abu Hanzala, who was subjected to age determination test as he had claimed to the interrogators that he was 17 years old, official sources said. Jutt, a resident of Multan turned out to be 22 years after test, revealed that LeT top brass has been telling the new recruits that they should behave minors so that they are tried under the Juvenile Justice Act. The maximum punishment under Juvenile Act is three years.

Interrogation of the LeT terrorist also vindicates India's stand of declaring JuD chief Hafiz Saeed as a ‘wanted terrorist' who has been perpetrating terror activities on Indian soil. Jutt admitted that he was trained in various madrassas owned by Jamaat-ul-Dawa (JuD), a front organisation for LeT.

The new recruits are also taught to learn from mistakes committed by Ajmal Kasab, sole attacker of 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attacks captured alive by police, reports say.

India should be ready with contingency plan:

These sensational revelations prove that Pak-based terror groups are hatching conspiracies to disturb India's peace and amalgam of global terror agencies with their cause will pose a bigger threat to internal security. The Government should take this matter seriously and not relent on this issue. Talk channels must always remain open but it must also put proper mechanisms in place to deal with such eventualities.
