Hizb hails, but disowns liquor shop attack


Muzaffarabad, Nov 16: Disowning the attack on a liquor shop in Heemal Hotel in Srinagar on Thursday evening, Hizbul Muajhideen Friday said it had nothing to do with the action. Hizb however termed the act as ‘appreciable and timely.’
Denouncing in strong terms the opening of liquor shops in the valley, Hizb spokesman Saleem Hashmi said the ‘Indian forces and secret agencies working in the troubled region are hell bent on destroying the Islamic identity of the State thereby establishing liquor shops, bars, taprooms, casinos and centers of debauchery all across the valley.’
He said that Hizb and the valiant people of Kashmir won’t allow it to happen. He said that rather than getting involved in un-Islamic business activities, the owners of the liquor shops must explore other respectable ways and means of business.
He warned that the Hizb won’t allow any one whosoever to destroy the social fabric of the Kashmiri society.
Saleem Hashmi also clarified that Junaid-ul-Islam was not a spokesman of the organization. He said that Baleeg-u-deen, ‘who has been operating in the battle-field,’ was actually spokesman of the organization.
