NEW DELHI: A pro-Islamic State (IS), Kashmir-centric media unit Al-Qaraar has released a video of an alleged Kashmiri 'fighter' asking fellow fighters and Muslims in the Valley to pledge allegiance to the terror group Islamic State and join its so-called 'caliphate'.
The nearly 14-minute long video, carrying English subitles, has a fighter identified as 'Abu al-Bara' al-Kashmiri' delivering a speech in Urdu while sitting in front of a flag bearing the words 'Kashmir Province', according to an update put out by the SITE Intelligence Group website.

He calls upon the 'fighters' and Muslims in Kashmir who fight a seek to establish a 'calipahte', including Zakir Musa-led Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, to swear allegiance to IS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. Men can be seen in the video marching through the street carrying the IS' banner.

On December 22, Al-Qaraar had published a poster calling Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind fighters and its leader, Zakir Musa, to join the IS. Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind was floated by Al Qaida as its Kashmir wing, with former Hizbul Mujahideen leader Zakir Musa in the lead.

Al Qaraar uploaded the poster carrying the message: "We invite soldiers of Ansaar Gazwat-ul-Hind and their Ameer Zakir Musa to join the caravan of the Caliphate respond to the call of time... don't listen to the blames of the blamers" — on its Telegram channel and Twitter account on December 22.

4-Feet-Tall Terrorist Killed In Kashmir Today Was Top Jaish Commander

"

JAMMU AND KASHMIR: Four-feet-tall Noor Mohammad Tantray or "Chhota Noora", a top Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist, was killed this morning in an encounter in south Kashmir's Pulwama district. He had been giving sleepless nights to security forces in Jammu and Kashmir for the last six months.


The 47-year-old, a resident of Tral, was said to be the "chief architect" of an attack on a Border Security Force (BSF) camp near the Srinagar International Airport in October. He was also said to be involved in a grenade attack on a minister's cavalcade in Tral in September. In fact, he had played an important role in most major attacks in the Kashmir Valley since taking control of the terror group in July this year, police said.
While his physical feature made it easier to identify him and therefore, restricted his movement in the area, it happened to be the reason why he was recruited by the terror group. "No one would suspect him to be a terrorist and that is why JeM recruited him as an over-ground worker," said a senior police officer who had arrested him in Delhi with a sack full of currency.

Noor Mohammad soon became the chief finance handler for JeM and received funds from across the border for terror activities. "He was also responsible for identifying his sources and keeping the cadre motivated," the officer added.

Kashmir police chief Muneer Khan told NDTV that he had become an active terrorist in the last few months. "He identified targets and planned the attacks. All attacks along the highways were designed by him. He used to identify escape routes as well," he said.

According to intelligence officials, the JeM had consolidated their strength this year. However, in last three months, the forces have managed to eliminate 15 of their cadres in south Kashmir itself.

"Their fighting strength has gone down. December and January are crucial months for us as most big attacks conducted by the JeM have taken place in these months," said a senior Ministry of Home Affairs official.
