Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah on Thursday said that government forces are committing “worst genocide” on Kashmiris under the garb of ‘Operation All Out’.
“Government forces are venting out their frustration and defeat in their fight against freedom fighters, by killing innocents,” LeT spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi in a statement issued to GNS quoted Shah as saying.
He said the report by UNHRC on the human rights violations in Kashmir is although late but a step in the right direction.
“India is committing gross human rights violations in Jammu Kashmir for the last seven decades. The human rights and religious freedom are severely violated; people are barred from offering Friday and Eid prayers. A mere single report on Jammu Kashmir is insufficient. What is required is the resolution to this dispute,” Shah according to the statement said.
LeT chief added, “We have been of the same opinion as held by (senior Congress leader and former J&K CM) Ghulam Nabi Azad and others since the beginning. India is up to bring back the era of (the then Governor) Jagmohan Singh by imposing the Governor rule so as to commit the massacre of innocents. It is a move to further intensify the mass killings.”
Mehmood Shah said that Mehbooba Mufti has “strived for her excellence in establishing the agenda of RSS in the Jammu and Kashmir”.
“8 lakh Indian forces are committing atrocities in Jammu Kashmir. The people are being suppressed down into slavery by excessive force but their immense sacrifices have rendered the likes of Operation All Out as complete failures,” he said adding that the ceasefire was a “drama” aimed at carrying out covert targets, not for the peacekeeping developments.
Lashkar chief said the “martyrdom” of senior journalist and Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari has “further exposed the vicious agendas of government forces”.
“If the Indian Ho Minister and Army Chief can visit Aurangzeb then why not Asifa? The pro-Indian politicians are talking about India’s war crimes just for their selfish political agendas but their role for pushing the people into slavery is well recognized,” he said. (GNS)
