Salahuddin is the HM chief who last year year threatened to turn the Kashmir valley into a graveyard for Indian forces.
US sanction on Salahuddin
A day after US President Donald Trump's meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US declared Syed Salahuddin as a "specially designated global terrorist."
But, Pakistan does not seem to deterred with increasing sanctions on Syed Salahuddin and his Hizbul Mujahideen.
According to reports, Salahuddin recently attended a public function at Muzaffarabad in PoK. His free movement puts question mark on the Pakistan's commitment to fight terror.
Pakistan had last week called the US action completely unjustified because it involved an individual "supporting the Kashmiri right to self-determination".
