Srinagar: A group of unidentified militants addressed a gathering in Pulwama district of south Kashmir on Friday evening, warning the people against supporting “un-Islamic Pakistan” while seeking support for the Taliban.
On the first death anniversary of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Naseer Pandit, the militants appeared near his grave and fired gunshots in air before addressing the crowd.
“India is a tyrant state today and will remain one tomorrow. It has to go from Kashmir. We will be successful only when we unite for Islam. We love Pakistan only because it was created in the name of Islam. But there is no Islam in today’s Pakistan. We have to do Jihad in Pakistan, just like in India,” said one of the militants. News18 was able to access the audio clip of the alleged militant’s speech but couldn’t confirm its authenticity.
He called for Sharia law in Kashmir. “We have not stood up for any organisation or Pakistan, but Islam,” said the speaker.
Praising the Taliban for its fight against Pakistan, the militant said, “Taliban wants Islamic system in Pakistan. We should love Taliban.” Many locals can be heard shouting “Long Live Taliban” slogans in the audio clip.
Warning the crowd against hoisting Pakistani flag, the militant said, “We want Shariah and Pakistani flag doesn’t come (in the domain) of Shariah because the Kalimah is not inscribed on it.”
The militant said people should not forget the “martyrdom” of Naseer Pandit, Burhan Wani, and Aafaq and “boycott” the upcoming polls.
A police officer told News18 that panic gripped at Kareemabad when gunshots were heard in the area. He said some militants had appeared at the graveyard of Naseer Pandit, who was killed in an encounter last year at Shopian, along with another militant Waseem Ahmad Malla.
