New Delhi, June 27: On Wednesday, a militant by the name Adil Ahmad Dar was killed.Interestingly he was killed by militants of the Lashkare-Toiba at Wagahama, Bijbehara.

The killing was to avenge Dar wanting to join a rival militant group, the Ansar Ghazwatul Hind, which was found by Zakir Musa, who was killed in an encounter on May 23 2019

The clash between the Dar and the rest of the militants began over a weapon. He sought to take the weapon and expressed his wish to join the AGH.

Finally the militants of the Lashkar-e-Toiba asked him to handover the weapon and quit the outfit.

When Dar went to hand over the weapon, he was killed. The body was later handed over to the locals.

This incident is reminiscent of the 1990s, when incidents of militancy in the Valley had started to come down drastically. A similar pattern was witnessed in those years, when militants fought against militants.

At that time, the big fight was between the Hizbul Mujahideen and the Al-Jihad. The Al-Jihad was the third largest group in Kashmir at that time after the Hizbul Mujahideen and JKLF.

Its militants had several run in with the Hizbul Mujahideen. Officials tells news agency that the militants of both these groups fought openly and violently. The fights were largely in North Kashmir.

The Indian Army and other security forces in Kashmir have been relentless in their battle against militants. The Army has undertaken a major clean up act in the Valley and has already gunned down nearly 100 militants including top commanders this year alone.

Top officials tell news agency that there is a clear signal that militancy is coming down drastically in the Valley. There is a fight for space and supremacy that has not cropped up between militant groups and hence one is witnessing a battle between each other. It is very similar to the 1990s, when militant groups openly fought against each other, the official also said.

Recently, an undated conversation between two Zakir Musa and Abu Dujana was released in which they are heard speaking about the role of the Pakistan Army and militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.

Both Dujana and Musa who were part of the Al-Qaeda inspired, Ansar Ghazwatul Hind were killed in separate encounters in the Valley.

Dujana who was initially part of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba quit the outfit and joined the Musa led AGH. Musa had formed the AGH after a fall out with the leadership of the Hizbul Mujahideen.

In the conversation released by Al-Sindh, the two are heard discussing the role of the ISI in the Kashmir battle. They say that the ISI wants to run shop in Kashmir and is only interested in land.

Further, Dujana is heard saying that the militants who come to Kashmir from Pakistan are in reality Pakistani soldiers without uniform. They are not here to fight for the cause of Kashmir, but are only interested in grabbing land, they say.

Further they say that they must fight for the people of Kashmir as this is the will of Allah.
The ISI cannot be trusted in this fight, they say, while citing the example of Ilyas Kashmiri, who fought against the ISI after realising what their real designs were.

I won’t let this happen to my people, Musa says. Even after I die, my thought must linger on he also says.

Dujana was one of the most dreaded militants in the Valley. He had joined the AGH after falling out with the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. He was killed in an encounter with the security for es on July 13 2018 at Pulwama.

Musa on the other hand was part of the Burhan Wani faction part of the Hizbul Mujahideen. He had fallen out with the leadership of the outfit, following which he had questioned their intent.

He also had questioned the role played by the Hurriyat Conference in the Kashmir battle. He quit the Hizbul Mujahideen and went on to form the AGH.(Agencies)
