Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah has paid tribute to its slain men Abu Ali Mudassir, Abu Muaz Saqib and others who were killed in a gunfight with government forces at Mujgund, Srinagar on Sunday morning.
“The whole world is seeing the cowardice of forces. Setting people’s houses on fire and blasting them after picking up the fallen Indian soldiers is no trait of professional armed forces,” a spokesperson of LeT Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi said in a statement issued to news gathering agency GNS quoted Mehmood Shah as saying.
“Indian forces and their army chief Gen Bipin Rawat must face the freedom fighters in battlefields,” Shah said, adding,
“Hundreds of youth are ready to pick up the fallen gun of Mudassir. The worries of India will only worsen,” LeT chief said.
He expressed grief over the loss of public properties and damaging to homes “by forces” and said, “the freedom fighters stand united with people in this moment of grief”.
“India will soon compensate for the tragic loss of properties of Kashmiris,” he said and hailed the stone pelters and mothers, sisters and youth for their “support to freedom fighters.”
“People are our true asset,” Lashkar chief in a statement said. (GNS)
