Srinagar, Aug 14: Militant outfit Hizbul Mujhadeen has appointed Muhammad Bin Qasim as its new Field Operational Commander. He will replace Mehmood Ghaznavi, who along with his two associates was killed in a gunfight at Awneera village of South Kashmir’s Shopian district.
“Though the separation of Muhammad Yasin Itoo alias Mehmood Ghaznavi, Engineer Irfan Sheikh and Umar Majid is very painful but their every drop of blood will produce thousands of valiant militants,” Hizb Chief Syed Salahuddin said while addressing a high level meeting of Hizb Command Council.
As per a statement to news agency CNS, Syed Salahuddin said that after the martyrdom of Burhan Wani, India was the under the impression that it has weakened the freedom movement but still thousands of freedom loving people are facing their bullets.
“It is really sad some stooges and agents are involved in the killing of militants but these agents will face the music. The sacrifices and blood of freedom loving people will not go waste,” he said and advised India to read the writing on the wall.
The meeting was also addressed by Hizb Deputy Chief Saifullah Khalid who paid rich tributes to slain militants and described Mehmood Ghaznavi as an inspirational and motivational figure who according to him gave sleepless nights to India Forces. (CNS)
