It is high time the youth of Kashmir shuns the acts of violence and understand the agenda of militants and Pakistan in digressing the youth from their path and hiring them for untoward activities.
In a nearly eight-minute audio released on Wednesday, Kashmir’s Hizb commander Riyaz Naikoo claimed it was his men who raided the Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital to free Lashkar terrorist Naveed Jhatt. Naikoo said Jhatt had “reached south Kashmir” safely.
On the killing of the two policemen guarding Jhatt, Naikoo said, “They were forced to kill Kashmiris to free their Pakistani brother.”
Naikoo, who took over as Hizb commander after Yasin Itoo’s death, added, “When we saw the children of the two policemen, we were heartbroken because we don’t want to kill any Kashmiri, but people who are aligning with India are forcing us to kill them.”
The Hizb message pointing to collaboration between militant groups did not surprise the security establishment. Jammu and Kashmir director general of police SP Vaid said such coordination was seen in many other attacks. “All the militants groups are now working together. It’s not just this incident. Lately, we have been seeing many joint attacks by various groups,” he added.
In new video, Hizbul commander has also openly confessed his love for Pakistan and Pakistani people. Watch here:
