Zakir Musa might emerge as the new choice for the global terror outfit and could also be the first terror commander of the al-Qaeda. According to top police sources, after being expelled from the Hizbul Mujahideen in May 2017, he has managed to break away some 10 terrorists from HM outfit those are mostly from Tral and surrounding areas. Tral remains the hotbed of militancy and the local forest range provides a cover for the terrorists to get the training. Musa was disassociated himself from the terrorist outfit HM to establish an ‘Islamic Caliphate in Kashmir’ and is trying to induct more terrorists to his group. Sources also said that local terrorists commanders such as Musa are “capable of running” and forming an independent terrorists outfit as a more dangerous trend as local youth resort to weapon snatching and go for training in the forest areas of south Kashmir. It is further revealed that Zakir Musa may become the al-Qaeda commander for India and may influence youth in other parts of the country also.
