SHOPIAN: Hizb ul Mujahideen posters surfaced in Shopian villages on Thursday, appealing for people to remove barbed wire fencing from orchards, warning women Special Police Officers to resign from their jobs and pleading with ‘informers’ to refrain from giving forces information about militants’ presence.
The said posters were seen in Chitragam, Vehil, Chatwatan and several other areas of the district on Wednesday evening. Earlier, after the killing of five militants including Sadam Padder almost a month ago, several posters were seen in Shopian areas, asking people to removed barbed fences from their orchards.
“We appeal to all those women who are working in police department as SPOs should resign within month’s time. We have a special list of school- and college-going girls who have developed illicit relationships with army and are informing them (army) about the presence of militants. Hence we appeal to the parents of these girls to stop their daughters from such activities, else they would be punished,” read the posters.
The posters further say, “We also have a special list of people who are informing police and army about militants’ presence. We again want to warn them to refrain from such activities, as we have proof about their involvement.”
The posters further say that the army comes to the villages for census purposes and they get contacts of women. “So be vigilant about it. You should neither give them your contacts nor let them enter your houses,” the posters read.
The posters also say that militants appealed to people some days ago to erase barbed wire fences from orchards but their appeal had no response. “We again appeal to you to remove the barbed wire fences of your orchards immediately.”
At the bottom of the posters is a stamp of the district commander of Hizb militant with photos of Hizb commander Zeenat-ul-Islam pasted at the top of the posters.
