'Scholar-turned-Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist ignored appeals to return home'

NEW DELHI: Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Mannan Wani, who was a analysis student at Aligarh Muslim University prior to taking on the gun, had ignored repeated appeals from his friends and family to return to the mainstream.


As according to sources in safety establishment, he chose to make use of his ability to articulate views higher, because of his schooling and Wahabi leanings, to convince younger Kashmiris to join terror ranks. "Multiple appeals were made to Wani after he went missing from AMU and his gun-wielding image as a Hizbul Mujahideen recruit surfaced on social media. However, he remained firm on his decision. Being highly educated and well read, he was better at articulating views justifying violence as a means to achieve 'azaadi'. His articulation of Wahabism was seen as a major pull factor for Kashmiris keen to join militancy," mentioned an officer of the central safety establishment. Wani was killed on Thursday in a gunfight with safety forces in Kupwara.


An officer mentioned Wani had turned into reasonably of a 'mastermind' for the native recruitment. "Despite being highly educated, he chose to wield the gun. A terrorist who picks up the gun either kills or gets killed. In his case, the latter has turned out to be true. Terrorists like Wani are more dangerous than those involved in actual attacks, as they lend their mind and thought process to sell militancy to Kashmiris and push up local recruitment into militancy."


As according to an estimate, over 130 locals were recruited to this point this 12 months by terror outfits in J&K. Sources mentioned with sustained anti-terror operations depleting the number of terrorists J&K hinterland, there's a aware effort by terror outfits to handle the minimum energy of their operatives within the valley at 300.
