Masarat Alam, a prominent member of Hurriyat led by Geelani has revealed that there is a rift among the separatists regarding the collection and use of funds pumped through the ‘hawala’ route, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has claimed.
The NIA claimed in a press statement that Alam revealed in his custodial interrogation that “Pakistan-based agents route the funds through ‘hawala’ operators which were transferred to the separatist leaders, including Syed Ali Shah Gilani, Chairman, All Parties Hurriyat Conference. Masarat Alam also revealed that there are rifts in the Hurriyat Conference regarding the collection and use of funds.”
The agency said these revelations were in continuation of a terror funding probe in a case registered by the agency in 2017.
NIA arrested Yasin Malik, leader of proscribed organization Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, Asiya Andrabi, leader of proscribed organization Duktaran-e-Milat, Separatist leader Shabir Shah of the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) and Masrat Alam of the Muslim League earlier this month. All the four accused were taken into police custody for interrogation. They were already behind bars in other cases registered against them by the NIA and the Enforcement Directorate.
According to the NIA, Malik also confessed that the Joint Resistance Leadership and the Gilani faction of the Hurriyat Conference “collected funds from the business community as well as certain other sources and ensured that economic shutdown and violent protests continue to disrupt the daily life of common citizens in the Kashmir Valley in 2016”.

After Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter in July 2016, there was wide unrest in the Valley.
“During interrogation, Yasin Malik revealed that he was instrumental in bringing together the disparate factions of the Hurriyat Conference and formed the JRL, which spearheaded the violent agitations in 2016 in Kashmir Valley by issuing ‘protest calendars’, leading to economic shutdown for over four months and also caused death and injuries to civilians and security forces during the violent protests,” the NIA said.
In 2017, the NIA arrested Kashmiri businessman Zahoor Ahmad Watali as one of the main suspects in the terror funding probe.
The agency had then said that Watali was one of the main ‘hawala’ conduits who used to generate and receive funds from Pakistan’s ISI, the UAE, and had floated various shell companies to disguise foreign remittances for further transfer to separatist leaders and stone-pelters in the Valley.
Asiya Andrabi reportedly admitted “that she had been collecting funds and donations from foreign sources and the Dukhtaran-e-Milat had been organizing protests by Muslim women in the Valley,” the NIA alleged.

The agency also claimed that “Andrabi was confronted with evidence regarding the funding of educational expenses of her son in Malaysia from 2011 onwards through foreign remittances made by Zahoor Watali.”
The Agency has already approached the authorities concerned for providing evidence relating to certain bank accounts used by Asiya Andrabi’s son while he was studying in the University,” NIA said.
On May 30, 2017, the agency registered a case against Jamat-ud-Dawa, the Duktaran-e-Millat, the Lashkar-e-Toiba, the Hizbul-Mujahideen and other separatist leaders in J&K for raising receiving and collecting funds for funding separatist and Militant activities in the State and entering into a larger conspiracy for causing disruption in the Valley and for waging war against India.
During the investigation conducted so far, the NIA has charge sheeted 13 accused, including Hafiz Mohammad Saeed (leader of Jamat-ud-Dawah), Syed Salahuddin (head of proscribed organization Hizbul-Mujahideen), seven-second rung separatist leaders, two ‘hawala’ conduits and some stone-pelters.

Kashmir Conflict | Real Dispute

Kashmir Conflict:

The Kashmir conflict is a territorial conflict primarily between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir region. The conflict started after the partition of India in 1947 as a dispute over the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir and escalated into three wars between India and Pakistan and several other armed skirmishes. China has also been involved in the conflict in a third-party role.

Both India and Pakistan claim the entirety of the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir. India controls approximately 55% of the land area of the region and 70% of its population, Pakistan controls approximately 30% of the land, while China controls the remaining 15%. India administers Jammu, the Kashmir Valley, Ladakh, and the Siachen Glacier. Pakistan administers Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan. China administers the mostly uninhabited Shaksgam Valley, and the Aksai Chin region. {Source: Wikipedia}

Kashmir Conflict | Real Dispute

How antique is this fight?

Even earlier than India and Pakistan won their independence from Britain in August 1947, Kashmir became hotly contested.

Below the partition plan provided by using the Indian Independence Act, Kashmir was free to accede to India or Pakistan.

The Maharaja (neighborhood ruler), Hari Singh, selected India and two-year warfare erupted in 1947.
A brand new conflict observed in 1965, at the same time as in 1999 India fought a brief but bitter struggle with Pakistani-subsidized forces.

By using that point, India and Pakistan had each declared themselves to be nuclear powers.

Why is there a lot of unrest in the Indian-administered element?

Many humans in the territory do no longer want it to be governed with the aid of India, who prefer alternatively both independence or union with Pakistan.

The populace of the Indian-administered state of Jammu and Kashmir is greater than 68% Muslim, making it the only nation inside India where Muslims are in most people.

Excessive unemployment and proceedings of human rights abuses via security forces battling street protesters and combating insurgents have annoyed the problem.

Violent insurgency within the state has ebbed and flowed when you consider that 1989, however, the area witnessed a sparkling wave of violence after the death of 22-year-old militant chief Burhan Wani in July 2016. He died in warfare with security forces, sparking massive protests across the valley.

Wani - whose social media motion pictures have been popular amongst younger humans - is largely credited with reviving and legitimizing the image of militancy within the area.

Hundreds attended Wani's funeral which turned into held in his hometown of Tral, about 40km (25 miles) south of the metropolis of Srinagar. Following the funeral, humans clashed with troops and it prompts a deadly cycle of violence for days. Greater than 30 civilians died, and others had been injured within the clashes. In view that then, violence has been on the upward thrust in the nation.

Extra than 500 human beings have been killed in 2018 - which includes civilians, security forces and militants - the best such toll in a decade.

Why not there high hopes for peace (Kashmir Conflict) in the new century?

India and Pakistan did certainly agree with a ceasefire in 2003 after years of bloodshed alongside the de facto border (additionally called the line of control).

Pakistan later promised to stop funding insurgents within the territory at the same time as India supplied them an amnesty in the event that they renounced militancy.

Then, in 2014, new Indian authorities came to electricity promising a difficult line on Pakistan, however, also showed hobby in conserving peace talks.

Nawaz Sharif, then high minister of Pakistan, also attended Indian PM Narendra Modi's swearing-in rite in Delhi.

But a year later, India blamed Pakistan-primarily based agencies for an assault on its airbase in Pathankot in the northern kingdom of Punjab. Mr. Modi also canceled a scheduled go to to the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, for a nearby summit in 2017. On the grounds that then, there hasn't been any progress in talks among the neighbors.

Are we returned to square one?

The bloody summer time of street protests in Indian-administered Kashmir in 2016 had already dimmed hopes for a lasting peace inside the location. Then, in June 2018, Mr. Modi's Bharatiya Janata birthday party pulled out of a coalition authorities run through the human beings' Democratic birthday celebration. The state has for the reason that been underneath direct rule from Delhi, which fuelled similarly anger.

The death of greater than 40 Indian troops on 14 February in a suicide, the assault has ended any hopes of a thaw in the immediate future. India blamed Pakistan-based militant agencies for an attack - the deadliest targeting Indian troops in Kashmir since the insurgency started out 3 decades ago.
Following the bombing, India stated it'd take "all possible diplomatic steps" to isolate Pakistan from the global community.

On 26 February it released air strikes in Pakistani territory which it said targeted militant bases.
Pakistan denied the raids had brought about principal damage or casualties however promised to respond, fuelling fears of disagreement. A day later it said it shot down two Indian Air force jets in its airspace after Pakistani planes struck objectives in Indian Territory.
