With the killing of Hizbul’s poster boy Burhan Wani, the Kashmir Valley is caught in serious crisis. 32 killed and over 1,400 injured till now, and the situation in Kashmir clearly reflects on the incident going out of bounds.

In spite of the turmoil, the truth remains that Wani was a terrorist and met the fate he deserved.

An open letter penned by an Indian army veteran Major Gaurav Arya of anti-insurgency operations in Kashmir reflected on the boiling situation in the Valley and most appropriately justified his killing in an army operation that took place in South Kashmir’s Kokernag area.

He pointed out that even if Wani had managed to flee this time he would have been killed in some other operation with “just a different date on the calendar, that’s all.”

Addressing him as “Dear Departed” Major Arya started by talking about the violent protest in Kashmir and said, “I grieve with your family and with the families of all those who lost their lives.”

Major Arya cleared that Wani made wrong choices by opting to become the face of terrorism on the “seductive world of social media”. He added that by posting pictures of him and his “brothers” with assault rifles and radio sets, Wani called for his death and warned that you should “NEVER do that in an operational area.”

Giving out signals to anyone who attempts to breach the security of the country, Major Arya iterated that Wani was a “dead man” as soon he went ahead to pursue his “social media blitzkrieg.”

Branding the members of Hurriyat Conference as “leech,” he pointed to their duplicity.

“Name one relative of Syed Ali Geelani, the head of the Hurriyat Conference, who is fighting the so-called Indian “occupation”? His son Nayeem Geelani is a doctor in Rawalpindi and lives under the patronage of the Pakistani ISI. Zahoor, his second son, lives in South Delhi. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s sister Rabia is a doctor in the US. Mariyam Andrabi, sister of the head of the radical Dukhtran-e-Millat, Asiya Andrabi, along with her family lives in Malaysia. Every Kashmiri separatist leader’s daughter or son is rich and safe, outside Kashmir. Jihad is for other people’s sons,” Major Arya said.

He also noted that Kashmir is an “artificially manufactured conflict” by Pakistan as it simply wants to keep “Indian forces bogged down in the valley.”

He concluded by saying, “You were a terrorist. You chose to wage war against India. Like for all other such perpetrators in the past, it didn’t go too well for you. When you choose to fight against the Indian Army, know this; THEY WILL KILL YOU.”

  • Jaish-e-Mohammad, a teenage suicide bomber who was killed this Sunday threatens attacks across India in a video.
  • The video shows how teenagers are brainwashed while sitting between terrorists and rifles.
  • The video has brought out the various reasons why the Kashmiri youth is turning towards terrorism.

A teenage Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) suicide bomber killed on Sunday in Kashmir had threatened terror attacks across India in an undated video which announces the “roaring” resurgence of his outfit headed by the Pakistan-based militant Masood Azhar.

The video, which gives a peek into how Kashmiri teenagers are being brainwashed into believing that they are targeting enemies of Islam, was apparently recorded in a house in the Kashmir Valley.

The Pakistan-based militant outfit on Monday released the eight-minute video online in which Fardeen Khanday, son of a Jammu and Kashmir policeman, urges Kashmiri youth and Muslims across the country to join the “fight against India”.

Seated between three AK assault rifles, a huge cache of ammunition, grenades and communication devices, Khanday appears calm even as he says that “by the time the video is released I will already be a new guest in heaven”.

Khanday, 16, was killed after he and two other Jaish suicide bombers attacked a paramilitary camp in Pulwama in south Kashmir on Sunday. Five Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in the attack. The other two attackers were also killed.

He said it was being made out as if unemployment was driving Kashmiri youths to take to militancy. “But the fact is that it is nothing (but) propaganda.

“The importance of jihad increases when infidels occupy our land and threaten the modesty of our women.

“My friends and I have listened to the call of Quran and plunged into the battlefield of jihad. This will continue till the last occupying soldier is present in Kashmir,” he says in Urdu with a thick Kashmiri accent.

According to police, Khanday, a resident of Tral in south Kashmir, which was the slain Burhan Wani’s hometown, joined militants only three months ago after his family reported him missing on September 15.

In the video, he also talks about the demolition of Babri Masjid as well as attacks on security forces blamed on the Jaish.

“Even after repeated claims by Indian security forces and agencies, Jaish-e-Mohammad has not been wiped out from the Valley. Jaish is not so weak. It is impossible to stop Jaish-e-Mohammad… We are roaring,” Khanday says in the recorded video. IANS
