Says sacrifices of militants will bear fruit
Srinagar, Jun 30: Hizb-ul-Mujahideen on Saturday paid tributes to the slain militants who were killed in an encounter that raged between forces and militants in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Friday.
In an e-mailed statement issued to KNS, the Hizb spokesman Saleem Hashmi quoted the outfit chief, Syed Salah-ud-din as saying “the slain militants achieved martyrdom and are now in the row of six lakh martyrs.”
According to the statement, the Hizb chief was speaking in the meeting that was held under the leadership of Syed Salah-ud-din.
The Hizb chief said, “The martyrs don’t die but they remain alive. Muslims have belief that the status of martyrs is too high due to which the youth in Kashmir remain always ready to sacrifice their lives and India is trying to suppress this valour since years.”
He said that the slain Pulwama militants fought against the Indian forces and caused severe damage to them. “The slain militant, Sajad Ahmad Shah, son of Ali Muhammad Shah of Kupwara was belonging to a family which sacrificed a lot. He was the close relative of the prominent Hizb commander Imtiyaz Aalam who was killed in 90’s.”
During the meeting, the Hizb vice-chief, Saifullah Khalid also paid tributes to the slain Pulwama militants and said that “the sacrifices of militants will bear fruit.”
The statement also said that the field operational commander, Muhammad Bin Qasim also paid tributes to the slain militants and said “the youth are sacrificing their lives and we need to take care of their sacrifices at any cost.” (KNS)
