India frightened: LeT
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 19: Various organizations, including Lashkar-e-Toiba have strongly condemned the arrest of the general secretary of Hurriyat Conference (G), Masrat Alam Bhat.
“Success of ongoing peaceful movement has frightened India. Alam’s arrest has exposed India’s real face, and has proved that it is out to muzzle all the voices,” the spokesman of Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), Dr Abdullah Gaznavi told Greater Kashmir over phone.
Quoting the LeT chief, Dr Gazanvi said that people of Kashmir had once again proved that they are for referendum.
“The role of every Kashmiri is important and the need of hour of hour is to demonstrate patience,” the LeT chief added.
The LeT chief, according to Dr Gaznavi, paid rich tributes to youth who fell to bullets during the present unrest. “If anything untoward happens to any Hurriyat leader it will have serious repercussions,” he added.
“The LeT has credible inputs about India may try to repeat Chattisinghpora incident to relate ongoing movement with terrorism. Kashmiris should keep their eyes open foil the designs of agencies,” the LeT chief added.
The acting chief of Dukhtaran-e-Milat Rifa’at Fatima, in a statement said, “No doubt Masrat’s arrest is a severe jolt to the ongoing Quit Jammu Kashmir Movement, but nobody should suffer from the illusion that the movement will die down with his arrest. People will continue to struggle till the goal is achieved.”
Tehreek-e-Hurriyat while condemning the arrest, termed it the worst kind of political vengeance by the government. “Masrat was playing a peaceful political role in the ongoing movement and was not involved in any subversive act,” said a TeH spokesman.
Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (R) senior vice-chairman Javid Ahmad Mir and chief organiser Shafat Jan Shangloo termed his arrest as an act of frustration.
Idara Saut-ul-Haq Jammu Kashmir said the martyrdom of youth and arrests of leaders are the part of every struggle. “Such incidents will not weaken the movement,” he added.
