Hafiz Saeed’s Jamaat ud Dawa holds ‘funeral’ prayers for militants killed in Kashmir
Members of proscribed outfit Jamat-ud-Dawa today performed imaginary funeral prayers of what they called martyrs from Jammu and Kashmir at their head office in Lahore.
Funeral prayers were offered for militants Junaid Mattoo, Nasir Wani, Adil Mushtaq and Sabzar Bhat, who were killed recently by security forces in Kashmir Valley.
The funeral prayers were offered at the headquarters of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Alqadsiya Markaz, which is located at Chuburji roundabout in Lahore.
Saifullah Khalid, the head of Jamat-ud-Dawa Lahore and the new brand name Tehrik-e-Azadi Jammu Kashmir led the funeral prayers.
Anti-India slogans were chanted before the funeral prayers. Special prayers were also offered for slain Hizbul commander Burhan Wani, who was killed in encounter with security forces July last year.
Jamaat-ud-Dawa alleged that the security forces are violating human rights in Kashmir saying that the soldier who used a Kashmiri as a human shield was awarded by Indian Army.
Jamaat-ud-Dawa said that it would continue to support militancy in Kashmir. Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed is under arrest in Pakistan on various charges
