LeT asks troops to fight them not civilians

8

Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah has strongly condemned the government forces’ attack on the houses of dead militants Majid Zargar and Abdul Shukoor in Kulgam saying forces are spreading terror in Jammu Kashmir.

“India is using terrorism as its state policy. Two houses were attacked by forces in recent days, completely destroying the infrastructure. The members of households were beaten mercilessly without discriminating between women and elderly, whereas the men and young were arrested. Is this the humanity? The security forces are supposed to fight in the battlefields not to kill the innocent women and children,” LeT spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi said in a statement quoted Shah.

Mehmood Shah also warned forces to refrain from their “vicious tactics” otherwise face “fierce reaction”.

Addressing the people of India, Lashkar chief said, “Kashmiri militants have never taken part in any activity on Indian soil against the people. We are very well aware of the fact that it is the land of Kashmiris. The people have no part in such crime, but if the forces continue to harass and play with the honour of our women, continue to kill the innocent youth, and put the elderly behind bars, then there will be no use in protesting against the consequences, be it by the Indian media, politicians or the people.”


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
