Pakistani terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba backs Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s statement on Kashmir

As per reports, Pak-based terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) has come out in support of Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, backing his statement on Kashmir. In an e-mailed statement issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), the LeT spokesman, Abdullah Ghaznawi quoted the outfit chief, Mahmood Shah, said that Indian forces are committing worst genocide on innocent Kashmiris under the disguise of Operation All-Out, and also mentioned that they agreed with Azad and others.

They wrote: “We have been of the same opinion as of the expressions of Ghulam Nabi Azad and others since the beginning. India is up to bring back the era of Jagmohan by imposing the Governor law so as to sabotage the infrastructure and commit a massacre of innocents. It is a move to further intensify the mass killings.”

The statement issued criticised the Indian forces for ‘committing atrocities’ in Jammu and Kashmir. It also alleged that ‘India was committing gross human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir for 7 decades’. It further stated that ‘the cease-fire was a mere drama. It was intended for covert targets, not for the peacekeeping developments.’

This kind of statements coming from terror outfits is not surprising, what leaves us speechless is that a veteran politician like Ghulam Nabi Azad hailing from a political party which takes credit for India independence and swears by the sacrifices made by them in the past, is playing petty politics and in turn tarnishing the reputation of the Indian Army, while getting endorsements from terror organisations.

In hail, sleet, and snow, in icy blizzards and pouring rain, an Indian soldier stands sentinel over the nation’s borders maintaining silent and lonely vigil. Despite the omnipresent danger, hardships, and privations of life on the nation’s troubled frontiers, he stands tall and firm. Stoic and resolute, his courage never wavers, his spirit never flags.

It is unfortunate that Azad(an Indian by birth, not sure how much in understanding) would term operations against terrorists carried on by these Indian brave hearts, who without even bothering about the consequences are ready to lay their lives for their country, as a “massacre” squarely toeing the Pakistan line of argument.

Azad while talking to News 18 said that “They take action against four terrorists and kill 20 civilians along. Their action is more against civilians than terrorists. For instance, they killed 13 civilians in Pulwama and just one terrorist. Saying that it will be an all-out operation, clearly shows that they plan to do a massacre.”

In this denouncing blame game, Congress leader Azad isn’t the only one. Congress president Rahul Gandhi too had attacked PDP-BJP, saying that the ‘opportunistic BJP-PDP alliance set fire to Jammu and Kashmir.’

Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Saifuddin Soz took a step further and backed former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf’s statement on Kashmiris’ independence. Earlier, Musharraf had said if given a chance Kashmiris would want to stay independent. Speaking to ANI, Soz said, “Musharraf said Kashmiris don’t want to merge with Pakistan, their first choice is independence. The statement was true then and remains true now also. I say the same but I know that it is not possible.”

Many condemned the statement by Congress leader and its subsequent endorsement by terror group LeT. BJP leader and legal activist Subramanian Swamy too left no stone unturned in making a jibe at the Congress for the shameful remarks passed by them undermining the Indian Army’s efforts and sacrifices.

Reacting to this, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore had said he hoped that senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad would retract his reported statement that government actions killed 20 civilians for every four terrorists in Kashmir.

“I would have understood if these were the words from some terrorist sympathizer but coming from the leader of opposition in RS is sad; Sir, it’s the terrorists that kill civilians, Our Army & Police are laying their lives to protect Kashmir. I hope you’ll retract your statement,” Rathore, the information, and broadcasting minister said in a tweet.
