Hizb advertises recruitment drive
November 29, 2003 18:38 IST
Opposing the Indo-Pak ceasefire, Pakistan-based militant outfit, Hizbul Mujahideen, has announced a new recruitment and training schedule for militants to fight in Kashmir.
The group on Friday issued a schedule for 'jihad' training in Pakistan's North West Frontier town of Peshawar.
The group distributed a four-page pamphlet at an Eid Milan hosted by Jamat-e-Islami party at Peshawar, Pakistan daily The Nation reported.
Hizb is a banned group and the Pakistani government claims it has launched a massive crackdown on militant groups in the country.
The training schedule talks of 21-day preliminary training and three-month guerrilla training, the newspaper said.
The pamphlet said food, accommodation, medi-care and arms will be provided by the group, while the recruits will have to bear the travelling expenditure to reach the training centre.
Flaying the ceasefire, Hizb spokesman Salim Hashmi had said on Thursday: "The ceasefire is by the two armies and not by the mujahideen."
Hizbul's new recruitment and training offer comes just weeks after the proscription of six militant outfits by the Mir Jafarullah Khan Jamali government.
