What is white-collar terrorism? 

Srinagar: Stating that the Army has won the trust of the people of Kashmir, General Officer Commanding 15 Corps, Lt General D P Pandey on Tuesday said that they won’t allow “white-collar terrorism” to prevail in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

“A small group of white-collar terrorists is luring youth towards terrorism,” Lt Gen Pandey told newsmen on the sidelines of a function here. “We won't allow white-collar terrorism to prevail in Jammu and Kashmir anymore,” he said.

“Dr Mudasir operating a fake unauthorized call centre was one such white-collar terrorist,” he said. “People who act behind (earning money, status, great jobs for their own families and children) to recruit and fund terrorism in Kashmir should be questioned by our people,” he said.

Dr. Mudasir was one among four persons killed during an encounter in the Hyderpora area of Srinagar on Monday late night. Police have said that Mudasir was an Over Ground Worker (OGW) of militants.

The senior Army General said that the people of Kashmir have complete confidence in the armed forces. "We need nothing more than to win the hearts of the people here,” he said.

"The people of J&K have understood our aim and they have full confidence in us. We have won the trust of the people of Kashmir," he said.

BJP spokesperson Brigadier Anil Gupta (R) @BrigadierAnil ) says - "As long as there is a single gun in Kashmir, terrorism will remain" Kashmiri activist @majidhyderi  hits out at Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha. Listen in! #IndiaFirst @gauravcsawant Removal of terrorism may take time.

After the abrogation of article 370 stone pelting has gone down, rhetoric announcements from Mosques decreased, street violence is not visible, Covid 19 was best managed in Kashmir, low budget tourists started coming, people started living a natural life. Who was affected? People supporting Pakistan, hooliganism, etc are affected. These people do not like peace as they lose their earning points. Hybrid terrorists are now attracted. These terrorists are very a few and there was a process to create fear and polarize the society. It creates inconvenience to the public, while lot of checking and searches on roads and houses may take place. So polarization, inconvenience, fear are the main purpose of terrorists.

Imran Pratapgarhi is a young and very good poet. But politicians think of power only.
कह रहां हूँ मैं ये नाप कर तोल  कर 
अपने ईमान की आवाज़ पर बोल कर 
खवाब घर वापिसी का जो बुनते हैं वो 
मेरी धड़कन सुने कान को खोल कर 
हम मोहम्मद  के इस्लाम की शान पर 
कल भी कुर्बान थे अब भी कुर्बान हैं  
हम मुसलमान हैं हम मुसलमान हैं  
मेरे भारत तेरी आन हैं शान है 
तेरी सरहदों के निगेहमाँ हैं/
आप बाई  डिफ़ॉल्ट से हिन्दोस्तानी हैं हम बाई चॉइस हिन्दोस्तानी हैं /
हम तो पारस अरब से भी आये नहीं 
तेरे अपने हैं हम तो पराये नहीं 
इस तरह से सितम हम पर ढाये गए /
मुद्दतें हो गयी मुस्कराये नहीं /
मेरे पुरखों की जागीरदारी है 
ये मत समज़ना की हम मेहरबान हैं 
हम मुसलमान हैं हम मुसलमान हैं //
तेरे अपने हैं हम पराये नहीं / हम मुसलमान हैं हम मुसलमान हैं  //

Elliot Weir reports on 9 August 2021 in "We know from the past that extremist individuals and groups with ideologies that seem almost implausibly hateful can and do take power. We don’t learn as much from history as we should. This means that we have to remain vigilant to prevent hate from gaining power, but it also means that real radical positive change is within the realm of possibility, we just have to work for it."

The March 15 attacks were a "watershed moment in New Zealand" and have increased the risk of extremist activity, University of Auckland's Dr. Chris Wilson said.

Chris Wilson tweets 

Tier 1 means users can't praise a group even for non-violent activities. Hate is defined as “repeatedly dehumanizing or advocating for harm against” people with protected characteristics. October 13, 2021.
