New Delhi: Hizbul Mujahideen cadre in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir have virtually raised a banner of revolt against expulsion of Abdul Majid Dar by the Islamabad-based command of the outfit. In the ''Jungle-Mangal'' camp, where Hizbul cadres are trained to carry out subversive activities in Jammu and Kashmir, they raised pro-Dar slogans, senior Hizbul leaders said. They said that some of the cadre hailing from Kupwara and Lolab areas of north Kashmir raised pro-Dar slogans and entered into a verbal dual with Pakistani security men present at the camp. They were protesting against the uncermonious removal of Dar from the Hizbul Mujahideen, they said. The protest came close on heels of potential Hizb commander Abu Ubaid joining a chorus of attacks against the Hizbul leadership in Pakistan for expelling three former top commanders of the outfit in J and K saying it was done in a haste.
