Militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen on October 19 asked migrant Kashmiri Pandits to return home and even guaranteed to ensure their safety.


The appeal came in form of a video that was released on October 18 asking Kashmiri migrants, who were forced to flee the Valley in early 1990, to return to their homes.

“We request Kashmiri Pandits to return to their homes. We take responsibility of their safety…They should look at those Pandits who never left Kashmir. Who has harassed or killed them?”

They further added that they will not only assure their protection but are also raising a group of Sikh youths to fight the government.

According to PTI, the video shows Zakir Rashid Bhat also known as ‘Musa’ requesting the above and claiming that the government is planning to take ‘Operation Blue Star’ kind of action in Kashmir and that ‘Sikh brothers’ are thus planning to join them.

“Our Sikh brothers are requesting us to join Hizbul Mujahideen…We are with them on every front and God willing, we will try and make an exclusive group for Sikhs in the outfit.”

‘Musa’ is said to be slain militant Burhan Wani’s ‘successor’ and in the brief video can be seen dressed in military camouflage, fiddling with a grenade.

Musa had dropped out of an engineering course from a Punjab college to join Hizbul Mujahideen some years back. He at that time had also given a bizarre argument that Pandits were forced out of the Valley under a planned strategy to target Muslims.

Back in early 1990’s thousands of Kashmiri Pandits were forced to flee the Valley after they were targeted by militant groups during a militancy outbreak.
