Qaeda offshoot accuses Pakistan of ‘backstabbing Kashmiris’ with ceasefire pact | India News – Times of India


SRINAGAR: The Islamic Emirate of Kashmir Mujahideen Ghazwat-ul-Hind, a jihadi offshoot of the Al Qaeda cell in Kashmir Valley, has expressed its anguish over the revival of ceasefire truce between India and Pakistan agreed on by the two sides last Thursday.
Khalid, a commander of the Islamist terrorist organization, in a statement, castigated Pakistan and said it is akin to “backstabbing the cause of Kashmir’s independence”.
“Whether we like it or not, both Pakistan and India have mutually degraded the resistance movement in Kashmir. Pakistan has for long been trying to settle for status quo, hence backstabbing the cause of Kashmir’s independence,” his statement reads.
Ghazwat-ul-Hind was formerly led by Zakir Rashid Bhat, also known as Zakir Musa, who was later killed in an encounter in south Kashmir in October 2019.
Khalid’s statement said, “We strongly condemn the recent meetings between the Indian and Pakistani armies and castigate their resolve on ceasefire and unholy agreements.”
The group reaffirmed its “resolve of jihad in Kashmir valley” and asserted that “no LoC, no agreements, no ceasefire will stop us from waging a war against occupying Indian army in Kashmir” in the statement.
