Srinagar: Lashker-e-Toiba on Monday appealed all “freedom fighters” to maintain unification “at all costs.”
In a statement issued in the back drop of remarks by former Hizb commander Zakir Musa, Chief Lashkar-e-Taiba, Mahmood Shah, said that unity should be maintained under all circumstances. “United, we can defeat the Indian complots and propaganda. The youth must maintain their enthusiasm to the right course. Tolerance, patience and endurance is the key to success,” Dr. Abdullah Ghazanwi, spokesperson of LeT, quoted Shah as saying in a statement issued to GNS.
“The forging of an alliance between the Kashmiris have struck India hard. The indigenous struggle of Kashmiris is being labelled as terrorism, thus denying Kashmiris of any rights to struggle for their freedom,” he said.
Paying tributes to “martyrs”, he said that former Hizb commander Burhan Wani’s “martyrdom gave a new direction to Kashmir’s freedom struggle.”
“ It is due to the sacrifices made by martyrs that the Kashmir struggle has found its way through thick and thin, resulting in a strong alliance between Hurriyat leadership and local populations,” he said.
The Kashmiri youth including boys and girls, he said, have acquitted themselves of the “label of an Indian by pelting the stones against Indian oppression.”
“The external pressure has begun to mount on India, pushing its government to grant Kashmiris their truthful rights and their freedom. India is deliberately trying to pave through each way it can find in order to sabotage Kashmir’s freedom struggle,” he said. (GNS)
