Hurriyat leaders in the main city centre of Srinagar Lal Chowk who describe the ongoing crisis in Kashmir as a political struggle A file image of Zakir Musa Image courtesy: News18 At that time Syed Salahuddin the head of United Jihad Council had said that “there is no scope or room for any international organisations like Islamic State and Al Qaeda we don’t need them nor is there any necessity for their presence” The fresh statement has put the Hizbul in a tight spot with the popularity of ‘Musa group’ as it is widely known in Kashmir increasing manifold while the man leading the group himself has caught public imagination especially among the youngsters So is Musa taking away the limelight from Hizbul While the heads of security agencies in Kashmir have often stressed on the fact that Al Qaeda and Islamic State have no presence in Kashmir the rise of Musa in the popularity graph is dispelling many myths and demolishing the narratives of convenience Should there be a rethink The number of militants aligned to Musa’s group is not more than 12 and they have not carried out any major attack according to police sources but the scale of his popularity is moving from one high to another If you want to witness it yourself go and attend the funeral of the next militant killed either in north or south Kashmir Go and watch the protests that follow the madness that unfolds the slogans that rhyme with the name ‘Musa’ it is all surreal So much so that after a braid chopping incident recently in Srinagar and the subsequent protests the protesters ended up raising “Musa Musa Zakir Musa” slogans Politically conscious of their “struggle” getting wrongly bracketed with the so-called Islamism Kashmiris loath the very name of Musa in private conversation and what he has come to preach And many people have also openly opposed his idea of ‘Caliphate’ The graph of his popularity is so strong and consistent that his way of speaking up against the traditional ways of separatist politics and Kashmiri militant outfits who have time and again distanced themselves from the global pan Islamic militant outfits has only soared his ratings Till now the war of words has never been so open between the UJC and Zakir Musa group as it is today The UJC has indirectly if one goes by their press statement branded Musa as an “Indian agent” a phrase used for mainstream politicians in valley Director General of Police S P Vaid told The New Indian Express that Musa is "following radical militant outfits like Islamic StateandAl Qaeda is dangerous” “Musa isn’t close to us or working with us at all As far as I know I don’t think he is close to any of our agencies If he comes in front of us we won’t spare him For us anybody who holds a gun and opens fire at us is a terrorist” Vaid told The New Indian Express The fresh war of words also comes at a time when the Hizb and Lashkar have faced the wrath of the operation ‘all-out’ launched by the Indian army in Kashmir in which Musa’s group also has lost few comrades and the two outfits’ backs have been “broken” More than 160 militants have been in valley this year the highest in almost a decade Inspector General of Police Munir Khan recently told Firstpost that the progress by the army in curbing the infiltration on the LoC next year as snow melts will help the force in “tackling the militants in hinterland” Musa has not yet responded to the allegations of the UJC Given his past behaviour he may not react at all Whatever happens in the coming weeks and months in the valley will set the agenda for counter insurgency operations But how will the fresh remarks against Musa play in the valley and will it have an impact on the ground only time will tell Panaji: A day after BJP president Amit Shah addressed

addressed to Secretary of Civil Aviation and Goa Chief Secretary and Director General of Police lawyer-activist Aires Rodrigues has alleged that holding a party meeting which was attended by over 2000 people was a violation of Section 141 (Unlawful assembly) of the Indian Penal Code and put passengers at the airport to inconvenience File image of BJP president Amit Shah Reuters "People who were arriving or departing from the airport were restrained by the blockage due to the public meeting as also the airport being considered a security installation no public meeting could have been held and that it also amounted to a violation of the other enactments covering vital installations like airports" the complaint reads Congress Rajya Sabha MP Shantaram Naik has also demanded that the Civil Aviation ministry should file a FIR against Shah and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar for hosting the "illegal" meeting "Since the land occupied by the Airport Authority of India and is operated by the ministry of Defence Defence Minister Arun Jaitley should invoke the Defence of India Act apart from the provisions of the Indian Penal Code and file another FIR" Naik has said in a statement

there Williams was on Tuesday battling and grabbing her chances when they came capitalising on just enough of them to secure a 6-3 3-6 7-6(2) win over Petra Kvitova and a spot in the US Open semi-finals “Sometimes you have opportunities and sometimes you take them and you don’t but it’s not like you get opportunity after opportunity after opportunity in these sorts of matches” said

singles wins and 16 since she last lifted the US Open title and remains as hungry for trophies as ever “I’m still living my dream and it’s amazing” said Williams It did not always seem like it on Tuesday particularly during a fluctuating second set when Williams was unable to put away her 13th seeded opponent who had beaten her four times in five meetings “You know definitely when I had opportunities in the second set and so many break points disappearing you feel like wow I should be doing more” said Williams “You have to put it behind you “It’s about winning the match you’re in Doesn’t matter whether you’re playing well or not playing well It’s about figuring out how to win “These big matches there have been times where I have won these and there have been times I didn’t win

the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe anti-talks faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) has gone on an overdrive to recruit new cadres in a bid to shore up its dwindling numbers The cadres have been recruited over the past five months mostly from the Moran inhabited zone in Tinsukia Dibrugarh and the western districts of Nalbari and Baksa They are being trained at a camp near Taga in Myanmar’s Hukwang Valley which is close to the Chindwin river The exercise is being supervised by a senior functionary Nayan Medhi who is also a member of ULFA’s executive council Ulfa cadres at a camp in Myanmar Image courtesy Rajeev Bhattacharyya Assam director general of police Mukesh Sahay was quoted by The Shillong Times and some Assamese local dailies as confirming the development on the sidelines of a meeting of the Unified Command at the 4 Corps headquarters of the army in Tezpur on 12 May According to informed sources the issue also came up for discussion at the meeting chaired by home minister Rajnath Singh with the director generals of police from the North East at the North Block on 16 May which also stressed the need to keep the security forces on high alert in the vulnerable zones along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh and India-Myanmar borders A police official claimed that three “linkmen” of the outfit who had helped in the recruitment have been identified and they would soon be apprehended All the new cadres would have to undergo a rigorous course of three months beginning with drills and political classes that shifts to combat tactics ambushes and lessons on survival in harsh terrains as the training draws to a close Taking part in operations comes at a later stage after continuous attachment to veteran units and acclimatisation of the routes ULFA’s strength and support base have vastly diminished in the past decade and especially after the group split in 2011 when a section of senior functionaries led by chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa decided to engage in talks with the Centre It is estimated that the strength of the anti-talks faction led by chief of staff Paresh Baruah is only around 250 scattered in Myanmar and Bangladesh It may be recalled that ULFA and three other groups including the Khaplang faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) had formed an alliance in 2015 for an effective campaign of independence for the North East and the contiguous Naga-inhabited region in Myanmar At least four deadly ambushes have since been carried out in the North East resulting in the death of several army and paramilitary personnel As many as eight separatist outfits from the North East have camps and training facilities in Myanmar’s Sagaing division that include six groups from Manipur Camps in the northern region of Sagaing division bordering Kachin and contiguous to Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh are under the effective control of NSCN(K) led by Naga rebel chief SS Khaplang Last year Khaplang played a key role in forming the “Special Elite Unit” – an assault group of experienced cadres with the mandate to gather information and identify spots for operations against the security forces The attack on the Assam Rifles in December last year in Arunachal Pradesh is believed to have been carried out by this unit An overground ULFA functionary attributed the recruitment to the “deadlock” in the peace process between the government and the pro-talks group “Everybody had high expectations from the peace process but since it has not been able to produce any results it is but natural that the boys would be attracted to the other side across the border” he said on condition of anonymity Employment avenues in Assam and the other states of the North East are meager with the result that a vast number of young adults have been moving out to the different metropolises of the country every year in search of jobs Those who are left behind are usually targeted for recruitment by militant outfits The ongoing training in Hukwang Valley is as much an indication of the protection enjoyed by ULFA and the other groups in Myanmar as the continuous rebuff by the Myanmarese army of New Delhi’s repeated pleas to dismantle the rebel bases The Myanmarese government has never accepted that the North East militants have been operating out of camps from its territory The chances of a crackdown have further receded after the army and NSCN(K) clinched a ceasefire agreement in 2012 after years of an informal pact The army is already engaged in war in Kachin
