Srinagar, Nov 29: (GNS) Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah has paid tribute to militants Adil Hizbi (commander) and Engineer Adnan killed in a gunfight with government forces in Pampore area of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Thursday.
A spokesperson of LeT Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi in a statement issued to GNS quoted Shah as saying, “The pace at which the indigenous freedom struggle of Kashmir continues and the resources and tactics Indian forces use, all such efforts are evident to the fact that the defeat of India is not far.”
Shah said the youth are competing against guns with stones and” still Indian forces are biting the dust”.
Reacting over the statement of Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat on the use of drone attacks in Kashmir, LeT chief said such statements amount to confessing the defeat by Indian forces.
“This statement is evident to the fact that Indian army chief has suffered from severe demotivating. Threatening us with death is a fool’s act. India has no potential to use drones against us because as they know that they will never be able to bear the consequences. The battlefield is equal for its competitors,” he said.
Mehmood Shah strongly condemned the shelling and firing by forces on the funeral procession of Meraj Ahmed, teeming it an” act of cowardice”.
The international human rights organizations must take notice of the India’s “atrocities and severe human rights violations”, the Lashkar chief said. (GNS)
