SRINAGAR: Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) on Thursday paid tributes to slain Hizb-ul-Mujahideen militants Adil Hizbi and Engineer Adnan who were killed in a gunfight with government forces in Khrew area of Pampore.
In an e-mailed statement, LeT spokesman Dr Abdullah Ghaznawi while quoting the outfit chief, Mahmood Shah as saying “the demise of India is inevitable.”
“The pace with which the indigenous freedom struggle of Kashmir is continued and that Indian forces are using their last of resources and tactics, all such efforts are evident to the fact that the defeat of India is not far,” he said.
Attributing the ‘martyrdom as of pivot towards the freedom’, Shah said: “The youth are competing against guns with stones and still Indian forces are biting the dust.”
Reacting on the statement given by Army chief Bipin Rawat on drone attacks, Shah said: “Such statements are proportional to confessing the defeat of Indian forces. Bipin Rawat has suffered enough disgrace that they are resorting to using drones against stone pelters. This statement is evident to the fact that the Indian army chief has suffered from severe demotivation. Threatening us with death is a fool’s act.”
“India has no tendency to use drones against us because they know that they will never be able to bear the consequences. The battlefield is equal for its competitors,” he said.
Shah condemned the shelling on the funeral procession of Meraj Ahmed and said: “India has fallen into pits of cowardice that they are targeting the funeral processions. The international human rights organizations must take notice of the atrocities and severe human rights violations.”
