Soon after the dastardly attack on the CRPF personnel in the Pulwama district, the Pakistan backed terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad which claimed the responsibility of the ghastly terrorist attack, released a video of the Fidayeen terrorist who is believed to have carried out the suicide attack.
The terrorist identified as Adil Ahmed Dar alias Waqas is seen admitting that he had joined the Jaish-e-Mohammad a year ago. In the video, he refers to Indians as “Gae ka Peshab Peene Wale” (People who drink cow urine). Waqas urges the people of North Kashmir, Central Kashmir, Jammu and South Kashmir to come together in the fight against India. The terrorist boasts about the terrorist attacks carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammad in the past and says, “Let this misunderstanding of yours be cleared that by killing few of our militant commanders, you can weaken us”.
Waqas makes a reference to the demolished Babri Masjid and expresses hope for its revival. He also makes a reference to the Hoors in Jannat and says, “Apne kirdar ko bedaag rakho taki jannat ki hoorein tumhari muntazir rahe“. Brandishing various assault weapons in the video he says, “By the time this video reaches you, I will be in heaven.”
The terrorist had rammed his explosive-laden car into a bus which was part of the convoy of the CRPF personnel. He was reportedly carrying around 350 kg of explosives in his car. According to some reports, the terrorist was a school dropout and used to work as a mason. He also used to lead prayers in the local mosque.
According to the latest reports, the death toll in the attack has reached 44 and may cross 50, as many injured remain critical.
