Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a militant outfit in Jammu and Kashmir, has rejected the ceasefire, earlier declared by Government of India, saying “ceasefire is no option and no thought can be given on such compromise.”

The Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had  called for a ceasefire during Ramzan, which was approved by the centre short while ago. Hours later, the LeT chief, Mehmood Shah, was quoted saying, “We deem it as sin and disgrace to the sacrifices put up in the freedom struggle. We are the heirs of the martyrs. Opting for such choice is treachery to blood of martyrs and there is no disgrace as such.”

“The statement of India’s interior minister is nothing but a drama,” said LeT spokesperson Dr. Abdullah Ghazanwi, quoted outfit’s chief. “It may be a wish of India and its few sympathizers and nothing else. Bipin Rawat is of the opinion that he may threaten the Kashmiris by imposing atrocities on unarmed students. It has neither happened before nor will it happen now. We were active in the resistance before and so we will be in future.”

He further added, that “we are in favor of negotiations but the talks of negotiations in presence of armed occupational forces in the region are lies.”

Shah also said that whole of Jihad Council is convinced on the leadership of Syed Salahuddin. “Our mothers are supporting us by picking up the guns and we can never betray their trust. This indigenous freedom struggle is supported by the pure blood of martyrs and we can never let anyone betray it. We vow to the people that we will never betray their trust and the immense sacrifices they have gone through in the freedom struggle. We will fight to the last of our blood in our struggle against illegal occupation. India shall soon witness the wrath of the people. We will continue the armed struggle until and unless Jammu Kashmir had won its freedom,” Shah was quoted by the spokesperson. (KNS)
