US declares Hizbul Mujahideen as Foreign Terrorist Group



US declares Hizbul Mujahideen as Foreign Terrorist Group


The designation comes nearly two months after declaring its chief Syed Salahuddin a global terrorist

The United States administration has declared Pakistan-based militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen a Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO) and imposed a series of sanctions on it, including barring its citizens from engaging in any transactions with the group.

The US declaration includes denying Hizbul Mujahideen any access to the country’s financial system and freezing of all assets owned by the militant outfit that are subject to US jurisdiction. The statement released, on Wednesday, said that Washington is seeking to deny the militant outfit the resources it needs to carry out terrorist attacks.

The move comes against the backdrop of increasing infiltration bids by terrorists from Pakistan in the strife-torn Jammu and Kashmir in recent months. Earlier, the terrorist outfit’s chief Syed Salahuddin was labelled a specially designated global terrorist.

In its order, the US State Department stated: “These designations seek to deny HM the resources it needs to carry out terrorist attacks. Among other consequences, all of HM’s property and interests in property subject to US jurisdiction are blocked, and US persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with the group.”

The designation comes as a big relief for India, especially after the outfit began regaining ground in the country under the outfit’s now slain commander Burhan Wani, who attracted dozens of recruits through social media sites. The FTO designation for Hizbul coupled with the recent crackdown by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) against Separatists in the Kashmir Valley who have allegedly been receiving funds from Pakistani handlers to spread terror and unrest in the region, is likely to provide the India establishment some much needed ammunition against Pakistan and its involvement in triggering acts of terror on Indian soil.

With the US now designating Hizbul as an FTO, India is now expected to be on firmer ground in the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) to put pressure on other countries for taking decisive action against the terror outfit. It could also help bring together other veto-holding nations in the UNSC to take on China if and when it tries to block restrictive action against Hizbul or its chief, Salahuddin. China had recently used its powers to extend by three months its technical hold on the US, France and UK-backed proposal of having Masood Azhar, chief of the Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad, designated as a terrorist by the United Nations.

What is Hizbul Mujahideen

Led by Syed Salahuddin, Hizbul Mujahideen was formed in 1989 as one of the largest indigenous armed group operating in Jammu and Kashmir. It has claimed responsibility for several attacks, including the April 2014 explosives attack in Jammu and Kashmir, which injured 17 people.

The Hizbul chief, Salahuddin, is a native of Budgam district in central Kashmir but is known to operate out of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. However, he has aided militancy in the state for the last 27 years by training youth from PoK and supplying them with arms before sending them across the border to spread terror in India. Salahuddin, who is listed in the NIA’s most-wanted list, was designated a “global terrorist” by the US, hours ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with President Donald Trump in June this year.

The terror groups from the Indian sub-continent that find a spot on the United State’s FTO list are Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Indian Mujahideen, and al-Qaeda.

The killing of Hizbul commander in Kashmir, Burhan Wani, last year had led to widespread unrest and violence in the Valley. While nearly 100 people lost their lives in the violence that erupted after Wani’s killing by the Indian Armed Forces, scores were left injured even as the federal and provincial government along with security agencies continued to flounder in search of ways to control the unrest.

The terrorist organisation has now named Mohammed Bin Qasim as its new chief in the valley.

Gujarat villagers chop off Dalit man’s thumb after his nephew picks up ball at cricket match

One of the accused chopped off Kirti’s thumb and injured him seriously. An FIR was registered under sections 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons), 506 (criminal intimidation) and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities Act).




Villagers from Gujarat’s Patan district allegedly attacked a Dalit boy and chopped off his uncle’s thumb after his nephew picked up a cricket ball during a match at school playground on Sunday.

The boy, who was watching a cricket match, picked up the ball, to which the accused allegedly got angry and beat up the boy. He also humiliated and threatened the boy.

When the victim’s uncle, Dhiraj Parmar, raised his voice against the insult, the matter got settled but later that evening, a group of seven men armed with sharp weapons allegedly assaulted the complainant Dhiraj and his brother Kirti.

One of the accused chopped off Kirti’s thumb and injured him seriously. An FIR was registered under sections 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons), 506 (criminal intimidation) and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities Act).

Discrimination based on caste is a significant issue in India which is illegal under law. The discrimination is mostly because of inequality and a lack of proper education about the harmful impacts of caste discrimination.

It’s crucial that people of this country and the government unitedly tackle and eradicate caste-based discrimination by educating people, enforcing laws, and addressing inequalities that contribute to such discrimination. Every individual deserves respect and equal treatment, regardless of their caste or social status.

It is unfortunate that the most weaker people in any society are often targets of violence.
Sadly, even in the twenty-first century, Indian society believes in a caste system as a prominent part of their society and to eliminate this caste issue in India, the young and the modern generation of our country need to understand the value of equality.
