In a new statement, the Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri on Tuesday has called all Kashmiri terror groups to come together to ‘single-mindedly focus on inflicting unrelenting blows on the Indian Army and government so as to bleed the Indian economy and make India suffer sustained losses in manpower and equipment’.
Several visuals of Indian Army officials apprehending Kashmiris under terror charges were displayed and he added that we (Al-Qaeda) must empathize with their cause and aide the Kashmiri Muslims. He then goes on to say that the Al-Qaeda must repeat their stance on Kashmiri aggression stating that an attack on Kashmiri Muslims is an attack on the Muslim community. Hence Arab Mujahideen wanted to go to Kashmir but were stopped by the Pakistan Army.
Zawahiri goes on to slam the Pakistan Army for using the Kashmiri Mujahideen for their own political purposes, by taking bribes from the American Government to destroy the Muslims in the area instead of liberating the Kashmiri Muslim’s lands and supporting the Islamic cause. He also added that the Pakistan Army cannot be trusted to liberate Kashmir.
“Geographical boundaries and national differences cannot divide us. Allah says that if one part of the body aches, the entire body feels the pain. Hence the Arab Mujahideen wanted to head to Kashmir after expelling the Russians from Afghanistan. But the Pakistan Army – the toadies of America were lying in wait for them,” says Zawahiri.
