The Hizbul Mujahideen on Friday said former Research & Analysis Wing (R&AW) chief A S Dulat’s claim that Hizbul chief Syed Salahuddin had called up a senior Intelligence Bureau (IB) officer to seek a seat for his son in medical college was a “Himalayan lie” aimed at defaming their “freedom struggle”.

Salahuddin’s son, Dr Wahid, dismissed Dulat’s allegations as a “distortion” that sought to “malign the image” of his father. Stating that he was selected “on the basis of merit”, he said the only “favour” granted was that he was allowed to shift from Jammu college to Srinagar college because of “security concerns”.

Hizbul spokesman Saleem Hashmi said Salahuddin had never contacted any government official. “The remarks are unfounded and have been made with the motive to create doubts in the minds of the common people vis-à-vis the freedom struggle of Kashmir,” said Hashmi in a statement. “People of Jammu and Kashmir know that Indian intelligence agencies and policy makers can go to any extent to weaken the freedom struggle”.

“There is not even an iota of truth in these allegations that my father called up the J&K government for any favour,” said Wahid. “Either Mr Dulat is ill-informed or he has run out of his mind for he has mouthed total rubbish,” he said in a statement.

“I was admitted in Jammu college, and being from a family with militant background, I had security apprehensions in Jammu. My fears came true… I was frequented by men from security and IB agencies. On the pretext of security investigations, the threat and harassment continued to the extent that I was forced to abdicate the class and lab work,” he said.

“My family was worried and approached BOPEE (board that conducts CET) authorities… who pretended helplessness. The court said migration was against the rules. I decided to abdicate the seat… However, my family approached the then government for help, which, sensing the political delicacy and scoring a point, helped me in migration in exchange of a Jammu student,” he said.

Wahid’s batchmates at the Srinagar Medical College also came out in his support. Drawing a parallel with IAS topper Shah Faesal, one of his batchmates said, “In the MD entrance test, he (Wahid) ranked above Shah Faesal.”

Wahid said only one of his four siblings has a permanent government job, and he was appointed much before their father took to militancy.

    One thing I can say for sure and it's good for the country that ex government officials now can fearlessly say what they could not say in UPA's rule. This is certainly a great gift to Indians by NaMo. Indian Media is fearless, opposition is fearless and people in general are fearless of central government. It's a sign of people's confidence in Indian democracy and NaMo's leadership.

      These terrorists should be killed or jailed at least instead of them getting admission to Medical/engineering colleges and filling the minds of their fellow muslim with poison and treachery. It is interesting to note that this docter had himself transferred to srinagar the hot bed of terrorists and seccessionists whom these swines call freedom fighters.The Scamgress is so Sickular that in case of an ancient Masjid besiged by terrorists -" The- Chirag-E-Sharif " affair the troops remained outside this masjid full of terrorists and the administration fed these killers ,biryanis and other culinary delights,Had it been a Hindu place of interest , like the 'Golden Temple " attack that Indira did ,the Scamgress party led by an Italian daughter of an Italian bartender now billionaire of course,would have destro it.But Nehru was half Muslim and we Indians have to pay the cost of this by cultural distortions by Muslim so called intellectuals followed in their footsteps by the Russian/Chinese trained Leftist Historians.Time has now come to examine our 750 years of slavery not only under the British but under the far worse Muslim invadors.

        The former Research & Analysis Wing chief A S Dulat’ has betra not only Past Govt but also people of India by disclosing secret of Govt which took decision in the interest of nation.His utterance on Hijacked AI plane in 1999 is bad in taste and 95% readers did not like it.To be frank very few in India may be knowing the role of RAW.Had this agency carried out its function honestly and sincerely then there would not be much terrorist activities in India.However NaMo being PM therewill be sea change in the function of RAW.Here one must appreciate our past CBI directors like Dr. R.K.Raghavan, Shri PC Sharma, Shri U S Misra, Shri Ashwani Kumar,Shri A P Singh, Shri Joginder Singh and Shri R C Sharma who never talked or disclosed anything against any govt matters once they retired from service.These past Directors have many explosive materials with them to disclose to public against Politicians but there are faithful to their duties and Govt under which they served.Not a single ex-Director has disclosed anything against any govt so far.Hats of to them.This is called integrity of Govt servant.

            1. At least he has the honesty to admit to a favour from the same Government which his father opposes. 2. He does not say who in his family asked for the favour on his behalf. 3. Does he realise how much money was spent by the Indian Taxpayer for his education 4. Why is his father silent ?
