Haroon Abbas Wani Joins Militant Organization
With the triggering of few cases which are sprouting within the Jammu sub-region joining areas like Doda, the militant organisations within the Valley show up to be effectively dispersing their appendages within the state. After the crevice of over 12 years, the Muslim majority area like Chenab valley is in the news for its interface with militancy. Three young people from Doda district of Jammu region have joined militant rank positions, the fresh one being Haroon Abbas Wani, age 31 years, of Ghat town (Doda district). This youth from Doda town, an MBA graduate, on Monday, joined the Hizbul Mujahideen.
The occurrence has caused alert within the Chenab Valley locale, consisting of Kishtwar, Doda and Ramban areas, which has not seen any dynamic militancy cases in the recent times. Haroon Abbas, who worked at a pharmaceutical company in Jammu for the past four years on the designation of marketing executive, is the second youth from Doda locale, in the recent times, to take up the weapons since July this year. The code name has been given as Moin-ul-Islam by the terrorist organisation outfit.
Haroon’s family described the entire scenario: they were ready to coming back home for his elder brother’s Jabbar Abbas’ wedding. However, suddenly they got the information that their son had joined the militant rank position. Haroon’s mother explained “We were planning to get Jabbar’s in-laws and other relatives, who were coming from Bhaderwah. Meanwhile, I got a call from somebody that Haroon’s photos holding an AK rifle were mingling on social media.”
Haroon’s father is a junior engineer by profession in Rural development Department in Doda. Haroon’s father and mother and other relatives have appealed Haroon to come back home. His mother conveyed the message that “You are, to begin with, jihad is to serve your parents…it was no jihad when your parents are in lose hope at home.”
There are assumptions that one more youth has joined the militant rank position and his name is Masood Ahmed, age 32 years, of Manjmi town in Bhagwah tehsil, but there has been no affirmation as yet.
Earlier in the present year, another youth had joined the LeT militant rank position in the month of July in Kashmir valley and he was shot dead in Anantnag in an encounter with the security forces on July 25, 2018.
Director General of police SP Vaid told that behind all these militant organisations, Pakistan is functioning as a mastermind and Pakistan wants to disrupt the Jammu region as well. Through these militant organisations, youth are being radicalised.
During the 1990s, numerous youth from the Chenab valley was a part of the Hizbul Mujahideen and a few were concomitant with Jammu Kashmir Freedom Front and Al-Jihad. But no one from the locale was linked with the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba or Jaish-e-Muhammad. Presently, these associations are attempting to target the Jammu locale as well. In spite of the fact that they don’t get much back within the Jammu plains, they have been focusing on the security establishments to form a fear psychosis.
Amid the examination of November 2016 Nagrota terror attack, the National Investigation Agency has reposted that Pakistan had pressed in equipped armed terrorists from over the International Border and they were upheld by the working sleeper cells in Jammu.
