Srinagar, Nov 23: Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) on Thursday paid tribute to the slain militants namely Lashkar-e-Taiba’s Abu Zaid, Azad Malik Urf DaDa, Abu Hanzala, Firdos Ahmed from Pulwama, Abu al-Qasim Shahid Ahmed from Pulwama, Abu Ayyan Basit from Anantnag and two others from Hizb-ul-Mujahideen who were killed in an encounter today at Bijbehara.
In an e-mailed statement issued to KNS, LeT Spokesman Dr Abdullah Ghaznawi quoted the outfit chief, Mahmood Shah said, “Those who rendered immense sacrifices in the path of freedom are better than those whose hearts have hardened. Raising the voice against oppression is not an act to be expected from cold-hearted. Allah SWT chooses worthy persons for such honorable task.”
“Today, every youth of Jammu valley is against Indian occupation. India’s problems will never decrease. Today if six from us are martyred then time will change and soon twelve from Indian occupational forces will bite the dust,” he said.
Shah paid tributes to the youth and children and advised them to understand the enemies’ conspiracies. “Muslims ruled over the sub-continent for more than 900 years but there is not even a single recorded incident of atrocity against Hindus. There was only one factor that led to the demise of Muslim rule and that act was ignorance from Jihad and prevalence of worldly enjoyment and carelessness,” he said.
“It is heart wrenching to observe that some of our children are falling for Indian conspiracies in the disguise of false culture. There are two major contributing factors that lead to the fall of a nation. One is rendering the youth into addiction and the second is instilling the prevalence of lewdness so as to make extinct the honor and values of the nation. India is instilling such evil plots against our children,” he said.
Advising the parents, Shah as per the statement advised them to take special care of their children and to have them married in time.
He requested the people to “seek forgiveness from Allah SWT for their sins and to pray for the victory of freedom fighters against forces. On one side the youth are rendering immense sacrifices while at the same time some are linear towards sinful acts, this is unacceptable.” (KNS)
