With messages such as "Kashmir is an integral part of India" and "Beijing has been hushing up Pakistan's link in terror attacks in Xinjiang" it appears that terrorist group Hizb-ul-Mujahideen's Twitter handle has been hacked.

The tweets are critical of Yasin Malik, Kashmiri separatist and chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, and Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

With messages such as “Kashmir is an integral part of India” and “Beijing has been hushing up Pakistan’s link in terror attacks in Xinjiang” it appears that terrorist group Hizb-ul-Mujahideen’s Twitter handle has been hacked. It is not clear who is behind the hacking. The tweets are critical of Yasin Malik, Kashmiri separatist and chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, and Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani. “Syed Ali Shah Geelani is a puppet of Nawaz Sharif, who even tried to corrupt me and the Hizb with money and land in Pakistan,” one of the tweets read. “I implore the people of Kashmir to openly denounce people like Syed Ali Shah Geelani & Yasin Malik.”

“Dialogue is the only way forward and ‘Inshallah’, peace will return to Kashmir(14/14), Men like Geelani know the worth of education and good life, and do it for their family. But when it comes to the youth of Kashmir(7/14)and the normal people of Kashmir, Geelani wants them to stage protests, shout slogans and pick up stones instead of books(8/14),” are some of the tweets posted on the handle. Through the tweets, the hacker said Geelani’s children have ‘large businesses’ and ‘are very wealthy.’ The tweets accused ‘men like Geelani’ of causing mayhem in Kashmir.

 

Burhan Wani, who was a military commander of the terrorist group in Kashmir, was killed in an encounter by security forces last year that subsequently led to widespread protests in the state. While curfew remained imposed on several districts in the Valley during the unrest, more than 90 civilians died in the protest. Thousands were injured as well.
