LeT supports JKLF strike call
Srinagar, Dec 5: Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) has supported the strike call given by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front for December 10 against a TADA court verdict sentencing two Kashmiri youth Nazir Ahmed Sheikh and Showkat Ahmed to life imprisonment.
In a tele-statement the LeT spokesman Dr Abdullah Gaznavi said: “We support the strike call given by JKLF for December 10 and urge people to observe a complete shutdown to express solidarity with the political detainees.”
He said that giving life sentences to Kashmiris, including Dr Qasim Faktoo, won’t break the resolve of Kashmiris. “The ongoing movement would be taken to its logical end,” Dr Gaznavi added.
INQILABI SUPPORTS CALL
Meanwhile, the chief patron of Jammu and Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi Muhammad Azam Inqilabi Wednesday condemned lifer to two Kashmiri detainees: Nazir Ahmad Sheikh and Showkat Ahmad, by a TADA court..
“Life sentences to Kashmiri prisoners, who have already spent nearly 15 years in jails will re-create situation of 1990s,” Inqilabi said in a statement on Wednesday, extending support to JKLF’s shutdown call for December 10.
Inqilabi said, “Pakistan administered Kashmir needs revolutionary government which can work for the resolution of Kashmir issue.”
He blamed the agencies for the recent clashes between two communities in old city.
