Srinagar: Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah has paid tribute to militants and civilians killed in Shopian and said India is committing severe atrocities.
“The elderly, men, women and children alike are badly injured by Indian terrorism. Atrocities are being committed while as the human rights organizations are silent,” LeT spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi in a statement issued to a local news agency GNS quoted Shah as saying.
“The Indian media takes every Kashmiri men, women, elderly and children as terrorists,” Mehmood Shah said, adding, “India is pushing the oppressed people to an extent that the waves of similar oppression reach out to Mumbai and Calcutta. The world will then term them as terrorism.”
LeT chief appealed to Pakistan’s administration that “despite India is killing the people of Jammu Kashmir and imposing severe atrocities, killing the young and injuring hundreds, still the mosques, demonstrations and funeral prayers are observed in solidarity with Pakistan, its slogans and flags”.
“Therefore, we appeal to Pakistan’s administration to take proactive and responsible steps in putting an end to India’s madness and terrorism,” Lashkar chief said.
