During the recent terrorists attack on government complex in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pampore, Indian security officials rescued nearly 100 people from the Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) complex.
Syed Mueed Yousuf, son of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen founder Syed Salahuddin, was also saved during the rescue operations.
Yousuf works as an information technology manager at the EDI.
Yousuf and other employees in his department were trapped in the ground floor, waiting for someone to come and rescue them. Ironically, Salahuddin has heaped praise on the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants, who attacked J&K EDI campus, a report said.
31-year-old Yousuf is one of Salahuddin’s three sons. All his sons have distanced themselves from the militant’s activities. His other sons are a doctor and a medical assistant.
Hizbul Mujahideen, headed by Salahuddin, is accused of attacking security forces in Jammu and Kashmir at a number of occasions.
Salahuddin, who is currently based in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, has also announced Hilal-eShuja’at, considered a bravery award, for the militants involved in Pampore attack.
