Srinagar, September 14: With 80 out of 200 militants currently active in the state, Hizbul Mujahideen has become the most dominant terror group in Kashmir while Lashkar-e-Toiba who used dominate before has now 60 operatives in the state.
According to sources, where almost all the Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists are from Pakistan, the majority of Hizbul Mujahideen commanders are from Kashmir which is taken as a warning of the changing dynamics of militants by attracting youth of Kashmir in this awful act.
According to police, the youth of Kashmir is joining terror group because of feeling dejected about their future since there is a lack of employment opportunities. Also, they suggested that Pakistan instead of sending militants across the heavily guarded border is now supporting anti-India activities by motivating local groups.
Apart from LeT and Hizbul, all other terror outfits are operating in the fringes. Once most active groups like Al Badar and Jaish-e-Mohammed are now left with just a dozen of active members in the state.
