Banned terrorist outfit Harkat-ul-Ansar resuming operations in Jammu and Kashmir under a new name of Jabbar-ul-Mujahideen, says sources

Drawing its cadres from Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) the terrorist outfit Harkat-ul-Ansar (HuA) is resuming operations under a new name of Jabbar-ul-Mujahideen, reports Daily Excelsior on December 5. Sources said that the top five ‘commanders’ have already infiltrated into Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) through Samba sector (Samba District) in July this year. Shah Chand Khan is the ‘commander-in-chief’ of the outfit in J&K and Badshah Khan, Noor Mohammad, Abdul Razak and Muneer Khan are his associates. The militant outfit is said to have close links with the Haqqani Network. A meeting was held at Lahore (Pakistan) on July 10, 2012, and soon after the top commanders were ‘launched’. All the five ‘commanders’ are said to be Pakistani nationals with Abdul Razak belonging to Gujranwala (Gujranwala District in Pakistan) and Muneer Khan to Rawalakot, (Poonch District) in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Badshah Khan who is the main ‘commander’ after Chand Khan is brother of Sajjad Afghani, the top ‘commander’ of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM) who was killed in Kot-Balwal Jail break, Jammu, in 1999. Badshah Khan has reportedly visited his brother's grave in Jammu District and offered prayers there, soon after his infiltration.

HuA was formed by the merger of two Pakistani militant outfits, Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, and was led by Maulana Saadatullah Khan and the organization took part in Afghan war. HuA was also operating in Myanmar, Tajikistan, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. In late 1990s it was operating in Jammu and Kashmir. It was declared a terrorist organization by USA in 1997 and the group then recast as Harkat-ul-Mujahideen in 1998.
