Who is Syed Salahuddin: World level political experts see this as major win for India as just a few hours before the first meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump took place at the White House, the US State Department on Monday designated Syed Salahuddin, the head of Kashmiri militant group Hizbul Mujahideen, as a specially designated global terrorist. The move by the US is being seen as a step in tightening the noose around the neck of the people involved in terror activities from Pakistani soil. As a consequence of this designation, US persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with Salahuddin and all of Salahuddin’s property and interests subject to United States jurisdiction are blocked.
