NEW DELHI: The four teachers among the 11 government servants sacked by J&K administration recently for alleged terror links and ‘anti-national’ activities were not only radicalizing pupils in their respective schools and institutions but also influencing youngsters in their respective localities to join terror ranks, according to sources in the Central intelligence agencies.
While Nasir Ahmad Tantray, sacked from his job as a teacher at GMS, Batengu, Anantnag, was purportedly associated with Hizbul Mujahideen and Jamaat e Islami, both banned outfits under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act; Mohammad Jabar Parray, whose services as a lecturer in District Institute of Education & Training (DIET), were terminated, was known as ‘Chhota Geelani’ among Jamaat-e-Islami cadres and was closely working with Jaish e Mohammad, said a source.
Interestingly, two of the four employees sacked from J&K education department, are women who were allegedly propagating the ideology of Dukhtaran e Millat, also banned under UAPA, and mobilizing support among women and children for the secession of J&K.
Nasir Ahmad Tantray was an alleged terror sympathizer who was appointed as a temporary teacher with the help of his elder brother Abdul Gani Tantray, employed in the same school, when the latter decided to proceed on earned leave for a few months.
Abdul Tantray, intelligence sources claimed, had joined Hizbul Mujahideen in 1990 as its district head or Nazir-e-zillah and had influence among the power centres of Anantnag. When Abdul joined back, the two brothers ensured that Nasir’s temporary appointment was extended and subsequently regularized in the same school.
Nasir, said a source, joined terror ranks soon after he was regularized and started indoctrinating the students and other youths in his region. “Nasir has close ties with Hizbul Mujahideen’s most-wanted chief Syed Salahuddin. Nisar’s son, studying in Pakistan, was sponsored by Salahuddin,” claimed an officer in a Central law enforcement agency.
Mohamad Jabar Parra was under the scanner of J&K government for the last few years but earlier regimes chose to look the other way, alleged an official. He claimed Parray had organized events of JeI’s student wing Jamat-e-Tulba in many schools. “He was also flagged by the security forces for organizing stone pelting and radicalizing youngsters but no action was taken against him,” said the officer.
It is learnt that Parray organized funerals of several terrorists in Bijbehara and brainwashed a dozen youths to become terrorists. Parray was also using local mosques to provoke youngsters with his pro-jihad speeches.
“He was closely working with Jaish-e-Mohammed and acted as a terror catalyst in Anantnag district by helping in execution of terror plans,” sources revealed.
Raziya Sultan, head teacher of government school, Khiram, Anantnag was sacked on alleged grounds of preaching terror. Her father Sultan Bhat was a staunch JeI supporter who was killed by terrorists in 1996 for double crossing. She was appointed as a teacher on compassionate ground in the year 2000. Security agencies had flagged that she was propagating Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) and JeI ideology but no action was taken.
“She was conducting gatherings of DeM and JeI in her village. The main agenda of such gatherings is to propagate secession of J&K, remain in touch with terror outfits and support their activities,” sources said.
Sakeen Akhter, the fourth sacked teacher appointed as a temporary teacher in 2002 at GPS, Gorjan Khiram, Anantnag, and subsequently regularized in 2008, was also “deeply involved in activities of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM),” claimed an officer in a Central investigative agency.
“She organizes gathering of young women and children on behalf of DeM to propagate secessionist activities. She has been carrying out such activities to help Pakistan sponsored terror groups while drawing salary from the government,” he added.
