Srinagar, Dec 31: Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah while paying tribute to slain Jaish-e-Mohammad militants saying New Delhi “is on its knees and mourning over its defeat”.
“Mujahideen fulfilled their obligation by their martyrdom. The deaths of tyrants have brought relief to the oppressed. Such outcome will be India’s fate until and unless they quit Kashmir,” a Lashkar spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi in a statement issued to GNS quoted Mehmood Shah as saying.
“The Indian plan to suppress the indigenous freedom struggle of Kashmir by ‘Operation All Out’ is nothing but an illusion,” LeT chief said. “Despite abundant resources, tactics and firepower used by Indian forces against freedom fighters, their plans have been rendered useless ever since they stepped in and claimed their illegal occupation.”
“This is evident to the claim that they are losing the war. The sole way for India to keep its forces’ numbers is to quit Kashmir,” Shah said.
The Lashkar chief also warned that “Mujahideen will avenge the martyred at all costs”.
The outfit also thanked the people of Awantipora for their “unmatched love, harmony and support to freedom fighters”. (GNS)
