Condemning desecration of Jamia Masjid, Hizb ul Mujahideen’s field operational commander Riyaz Naikoo on Sunday said that Islamic State (IS) 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. Youth don’t understand that it’s a ploy by Indian agencies to defame our movement,” Naikoo is being heard in a audio message, which has gone viral on social media on Sunday.
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,” Naikoo said, adding that waving of Islamic State (IS) flags is equal to going against the freedom movement and to ditch the blood of ‘martyrs’.
“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,” Naikoo can be heard saying in the audio message.
He also said that at one hand Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is trying to unite people for the just cause but these people with vested intrests 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 can be heard saying in the audio message.
