No minor move
Terrorist outfits like the Jaish-e-Mohammed, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen and Hizbul Mujahideen are using child soldiers in Kashmir, revealing their desperation.
One of them was identified as 13-year-old Mohammad Islam of Sihota in Pakistan, the spokesman said. The teenager described to the army how he had been motivated for jehad and made to pick up guns.
Islam said that no member of his group was made aware of the hazards that they would have to face while crossing the LoC. Nor were they told of the electrified fencing along the LoC.
“There was no mention of that. We were simply pushed to this side and asked to fight against the Indian Army,” Islam is reported to have said. [HT]
