IS (Daesh) have No Place in Kashmir Rather a Product of Anti-Islamic Western Countries - LeT

Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Tehreek-ul-Mujhadeen (TuM) on Saturday defied the self-styled Islamic State (IS) claiming IS to be “production of anti-Islamic Western countries."

“Kashmiri people don’t want aid and support from an external group. They are capable enough to fight against the Indian aggression themselves,” LeT spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi told a local news agency.

The LeT described the IS as “production of anti-Islamic Western countries”. “To link our struggle with IS is mere propaganda unleashed by India. The world community is well aware of this Indian drama,” said the LeT spokesman. 

General Officer Commanding, 16 Corps, Lt General R.R Nimbhorkar on Thursday expressed apprehensions that "the IS could join hands with LeT to launch attacks in India can be a possibility as the motive of the terrorists is to spread their propaganda.”

Reacting sharply to the army commander’s remarks, another militant outfit TuM said, “India is defaming the Kashmir struggle by linking it to IS and al-Qaida.”

United Jihad Council secretary general and TuM chief Sheikh Jamil-ur-Rehman said, “There is no scope for al-Qaeda and IS in Jammu and Kashmir. Ours is a local and indigenous struggle, the Government of India wants to kill our youth and defame our sacred struggle in the name of Al-Qaida and ISIS.” 

He claimed that the militants of Kashmir “have no world ambitions”. “Our sole objective is to force India to resolve the Kashmir issue in accordance to the United Nations resolutions,” said Rehman.
