SRINAGAR: Chairperson Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM), Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, on Monday said the Pampore gunfight “revived memories of the earliest battles of Islam”.
“Three men with few weapons and supplies fought one of the world’s largest armies with sophisticated weaponry, for three days. Alhamdulillah, the mujahedeen inflicted huge casualties on Indian forces and dented their morale to a great extent,” Aasiya said in a statement issued here.
She also hailed the people particularly women of Pampore for boosting the morale of the “mujahedeen”.
Women of the area had defied the restrictions and chanted pro-militant slogans.
“One thing needs to be clarified. Mujahedeen hadn’t taken people hostage in the building but made sure they leave safely as was admitted by Army’s operation incharge. The gardener who was killed on the first day received bullets by military,” she said.
Aasiya appealed the pro-freedom leadership of Jammu and Kashmir to call for funeral prayers-in-absentia for the “brave martyrs” and demanded their bodies from the forces for Islamic funeral.

    Dear Asiya, WHY were these ‘brave mujahids’ HIDING in the building? WHY could they not come OUT and fight like true warriors? Did the so-called ‘brave warriors of the earliest Islamic battles’ ever HIDE in buildings in that era? All this only proves that such so-called ‘Mujahids’ are nothing more than a lump of feces (what we do in the Toilet every morning). Hiding does not help in your so-called cause — but what more can you expect from these ‘Mujahids’ — when the very word ‘hid’ (i.e. hiding) is part of their title…!!
