Syed Salahuddin-Hizbul Mujahideen
Wanted in India, Salahuddin lives in Rawalpindi under state patronage. He crossed over to Pakistan following the controversial ’87 state assembly election, which he contested under his real name, Yousuf Shah. A folk hero to Kashmiri fighters, he shuffles between Rawalpindi, where the army HQ is, and Muzaffarabad, the capital of PoK. His salience lies in the fact that his group, Hizbul Mujahideen, consists mostly of Kashmiris, thus bolstering the claims of those who describe the Kashmiri movement as indigenous. Salahuddin has openly stated that Islamabad considers him a freedom fighter and therefore wouldn’t hand him over to India.

Syed Moinullah Shah, a suspected Pakistani rebel allegedly belonging to Hezb-ul-Mujahedeen, the largest Kashmiri guerrilla group fighting against Indian rule, looks on during a press conference organized by the Indian army, at an army base in Srinagar. Indian army arrested Shah in Indian-controlled Kashmir and recovered arms and ammunition from him.
