Fardeen claims the "rise of militancy has nothing to do with unemployment, but a reaction to Kashmir's occupation by India".

He insists that despite "repeated claims that Jaish-e-Mohammad is finished, I want to tell everyone it is impossible to stop Jaish-e-Mohammad now". He pays tributes to JeM leader Maulana Masood Azhar.

"Youth of Kashmir, please realize your duties and join the fight for azadi."

FuneralThousands attend Fardeen's funeral in Tral

Meanwhile, thousands of people attended Fardeen's funeral in Tral, reported Greater Kashmir.

Talking to HT, a senior cop blamed former JeM commander Noor Trali, eliminated in an encounter last week, "for such level of indoctrination".

Officials said they had information JeM would try to "avenge Trali's death".

DGP SP Vaid had said yesterday that "almost entire militant leadership" had been eliminated in 2017.
