Srinagar, May 15: Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mahmood Shah Monday recalled “Kashmir struggle as a tribute of its martyrs.”
“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 in an emailed statement to KNS.
“The Kashmiri youth including boys and girls 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,” Shah said.
He added the forging of an alliance between the Kashmiris have struck India hard. “The indigenous struggle of Kashmiris is being labeled as terrorism, thus denying Kashmiris of any rights to struggle for their freedom.”
Mahmood Shah appealed the “freedom fighters” to maintain their unification at all costs and under all circumstances. “United, we can defeat the Indian complots and propaganda. The youth must maintain their enthusiasim to the right course. Tolerance, patience and endurance is the key to success,” the LeT chief added. (KNS)
