Killings won’t scare Kashmiris: Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen

Srinagar, Sep 11:Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen chief and United Jihad Council (UJC) General Secretary, Sheikh Jameel-ur-Rehman on Tuesday condemned the killing of a Lolab resident in Khanyar area of Srinagar, saying the killings of Islamic scholars and pro-resistance people won’t frighten Kashmiri people.Abdul Ahad Ganie, a resident of Tewan Mohalla Lalpora Lolab Kupwara, was shot in the head while he was driving a car (No. DL 3C AY 6352), in Khanyar area of the Srinagar city.

Reports said that Ganie, who was pursuing PhD from Aligarh Muslim University, was visiting his in-laws who reside in Khanyar.


In a statement, Rehman said that this is not the first time that unknown gunmen have been blamed for killing of well-wishers of Kashmiri resistance. “These unknown gunmen are Indian forces and their agents who are carrying out massacre of Kashmiris in a planned manner,” he claimed, in the statement.

He said the “cruel” killings of Islamic scholars and pro-movement people would give impetus to Kashmir struggle. “India and its agents would have to pay for the innocent killings,” he warned.
