Top Terror Commander Syed Salahuddin ‘Not Injured’ In Pakistan Attacks – Pak Journalist

Published

on

Reports in Indian media say that Syed Salahuddin, who also heads the United Jihad Council, was “seriously injured in the attack and is undergoing treatment”.

Reports said that since Syed Salahuddin was unable to carry out Pakistan’s mission of creating unrest in Jammu and Kashmir off-late, terror outfit chief allegedly faced the fury of his masters when he was attacked by unknown attackers in Islamabad.

India media report claim that Syed Salahuddin was “seriously injured in the attack and is undergoing treatment”, a claim rejected by Pakistani journalist – Hamid Mir.

Media reports also claimed that since Salahuddin was clueless about the Indian government’s move to abrogate Article 370, the ISI had deliberately started revoking its support to the Hizbul Mujahideen.

Syed Salahuddin

74 years old, Syed Salahuddin, who heads Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, a pro-Pakistan Kashmiri separatist militant organisation that aims to join Kashmir to Pakistan is not only one of India’s most-wanted list that includes names like Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon but is also a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the US Department of State.

Born and raised in Budgam district of the Kashmir valley which is known to house the highest amount of Shia Muslims in the UT, Salahuddin had initially joined the Jammu and Kashmir Police Force and had even promoted to the rank of Sub Inspector before being highly influenced by Jamaat-e-Islami, an organisation that has now been banned for 5 years under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

It is reported that while completing his Masters in Political Science from the University of Kashmir, the young Salahuddin got radicalised accepting and endorsing Sharia Law which are religious laws derived from the precepts of Islam.

Taking up Arms

Before taking up the violent means of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, Salahuddin first contested in the democratically held assembly elections of 1987 in J&K but had no luck and was rather arrested and kept behind bars for his violent agitations.

Two years later, Salahuddin joined the Hizb-ul-Mujahideen and hence began his recognised militancy tenure which continues till day where he serves the head of not just this banned terrorist organisation but also the head of United Jihad Council, which is an organisation reportedly developed by the Pakistan Army for unified command and control over the anti-Indian militant groups that operates in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan Army’s continued efforts to size Kashmir had been accepted by Salahuddin in 2012 “We are fighting Pakistan’s war in Kashmir and if it withdraws its support, the war would be fought inside Pakistan,” said Salahuddin in the interview in June 2012.

While Pakistan rejected his comments, Islamabad did not take any action against Salahuddin since the United Nations Security Council hadn’t classified him as a terrorist.

Syed Salahuddin’s Involvement In Militancy

In the name of Radical Jihad, Salahuddin has incited many violent protests and agitations in the valley by his recruits that have been a cause of major turmoil in the valley.

The attack on Pathankot Air Base in 2016 that lasted about 17 hours resulted in the death of five attackers and six security personnel, was undertaken under Salahuddin’s leadership by the UJC.

Under Salahuddin’s leadership, Hizb-ul-Mujahideen has seen the commandership of many militants like Burhan Wani, Sabzar Bhat, Zakir Musa and the latest one to be taken down by the armed forces, Riyaz Naikoo. It was reported that after Naikoo’s encounter, Syed Salahuddin had said that the sacrifice would help them achieve the mission that they had set out to achieve.
