Srinagar: Condemning the recent Jamia Masjid incident were ISIS flags were waived by masked youth, Hizb ul Mujahideen’s field operational commander Riyaz Naikoo on Sunday said that ISIS flags are being waved at the behest of Indian agencies and youth are being mislead.
“India has long been trying to break us and now it has come under the guise of Islam,” Naikoo is being heard in a audio message viral on social media network. “Youth don’t understand that it’s a ploy by Indian agencies to defame our movement.”
Naikoo is also heard saying that people should be aware of such conspiracies. “We are an emotional nation. We should use our mind to understand enemies’ plot,” he said, adding that waving of ISIS flags is equal to going against the freedom movement and to ditch the blood of martyrs.
“War is but strategy,” said Naikoo. “One has to use emotions and well as mind in it. One has to decide what’s to be done and what not.”
Naikoo accused people who wave ISIS flags of trying to connect Kashmir freedom movement with Global terror network. “There are people with vested interests who are pushing it. When we are alive they call us murtads but when we embrace martyrdom they appear in our funerals with flags.”
He also added that at one hand Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is trying to unite people for the just cause but these people with vested interests want to divide us.
Naikoo also asked people not to let former chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti enter the houses of martyrs.
“As elections approach she is visiting martyrs families. It’s a drama. Her hands are drenched with blood. She is the same person who said that ‘those killed were not there to buy toffees’,” he said.
“I urge people to throw her out from their houses and don’t let her in,” Naikoo is heard saying. The veracity of the clip couldn’t be verified.
