This week, the Jammu and Kashmir Bank fired its Chief Manager, Sajad Ahmad Bazaz. They believe he was involved with terrorism and worked for Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI.
The bank’s boss said they had proof that justified firing him. Surprisingly, the bank didn’t know that Bazaz was linked to ISI and terrorist groups.
This information came out after a special law (Article 370) was removed in 2019. Bazaz was put in the bank by the ISI in 1990, and he started as a Cashier and Clerk. He also wrote for a newspaper using a different name.
In his articles, he supported ideas that Pakistan likes, such as the UN getting involved in Kashmir and talking about human rights issues. As time passed, Bazaz became bolder. He changed the name he used for writing and included his last name, thinking nobody would notice what he was doing.
He was fired because of suspicions that he was connected to the ISI and terrorism. This happened in both the banking and media fields.
