Hyderabad, Dec 30: The three youth, who were arrested from Nagpur for allegedly trying to join a terrorist outfit, have suggested to the police that they were desperate to meet with Asiya Andrabi.
This is an interesting revelation made by the three Hyderabad-based youth and suggests that they have wanted to take part in the Kashmir battle at the behest of Pakistan.
Asiya Andrabi is the founder of the Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM -- Daughters of the nation). The DeM is part of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference in Kashmir and the intent of this outfit is to separate Kashmir from India.
Incidentally she is also the wife of Ashiq Hussain Faktoo, one of the founders of the Hizbul Mujahideen.
Last week the police had arrested Abdul Basith, Syed Omar and Maaz Hussain at Nagpur. They had left their homes in Hyderabad in a bid to join a terror group.
While at first it was suggested that they were trying to join the ISIS, now it is clear that they may have wanted to be part of the Kashmir battle as they wanted to meet with Asiya Andrabi.
Who is Asiya Andrabi?
An outright supporter of Pakistan, she has only one agenda and that is to separate Kashmir from India. She has hoisted the Pakistan flag in Kashmir several times and even sung their national anthem.
Provocative and referred to as an iron lady by the separatists, Asiya is founder of the Dukhtaran-e-Millat (Daughters of the nation).
The DeM is part of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference in Kashmir and the intent of this outfit is to separate Kashmir from India.
She had words of hate against the Indian army as well and has very often said that that it is her dream to kill the soldiers.
Asiya has been in the news for all the wrong reasons since long. Married to Ashiq Hussain Faktoo, one of the founders of the dreaded Hizbul Mujahideen, she has been labeled as an iron lady by her supporters.
She is best known for mobilizing women against India. She would invite women to read and understand Islam and wage a war against India.
She believes that the women too should participate in the war against India and only then would it be a successful one.
She was also instrumental in starting the Quit Jammu and Kashmir movement along with several other wings of the Hurriyat Conference.
She is a staunch believer in the concept of an Islamic state and says that she would be blessed if her own sons died as suicide bombers.
She has been very unapologetic where her sentiments towards Pakistan are concerned. She by her own admission says that she has been hoisting the Pakistan flag on August 14th for the past 35 years.
She also distributes sweets on that day. She had even once remarked, "check out how many Pakistan flags are hoisted in Kashmir when their team wins a cricket match against India."
