Pakistan Recruiting Kashmir Youth For Militancy Using Social Media

Lashkar's Majid Khan surrenders in south Kashmir: police

Parading before the media two of the militants arrested in Kulgam (the third was in hospital), Khan said, "We arrested, alive, three militants from the encounter site". "Besides Pakistan, social media and religion have been playing major role in driving youth to militancy". "We are working on how to get those (militants) into mainstream who are here and how to rehabilitate them in future".

Three terrorists have been arrested in an anti-militancy operation, said Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Munir Khan on Thursday. "A militant and an army man were killed on the first day of the operation". "Koi rok nahi hogi (there will be no halt)", he said about the "Operation All-Out" against militants.

Speaking about the local militancy, the IGP said Pakistan has been running a relentless campaign to lure Kashmiri youths to join militancy.

"There are many factors", he said when asked the reasons why youth were joining militant ranks.

Asserting that "not more than 17 local youth" have joined militant ranks in the past three months, Khan said, "No doubt that youth have joined ranks, but a lot of them are school/college dropouts".

We owe it to ourselves, the government and people of Ireland who have been very enthusiastic about it to fight to the end for it". World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont said: "We've been fortunate to have three great bids".

He said the detention of three militants during the Kund operation in Kulgam showed the resolve of the security forces.

Three militants, Atta Mohammad Malik, Shams-ul-Wiqar and Bilal Sheikh, have been captured alive. He said the new "surrender policy would offer 'rehabilitation of the militants who shun the path of violence and join mainstream"'. "He would have died if we hadn't shifted him to a hospital where he is now said to be out of danger". "The 15-25 age group is immature and is unable to differentiate between good and evil". The recommendations would later send it to the government for approval.

IG CRPF at the occasion said there is a greater synergy between all the security forces to conduct anti-militancy operations.

Army Sector Commander Sachin Malik said they will continue the operations till the militancy is here.
