Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) has condemned the arrest of seven activists of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, who were on way to KanganPulwama to express solidarity with the family members of Musawir, who died in a gunfight with forces on Friday. “It’s strange that offering of condolences to the families of martyrs is considered a crime? In reality, New Delhi is afraid of the participation of women in the ongoing struggle. Presence of women in huge numbers in the funeral prayers has frustrated people at the helm,” LeT spokesman Dr Abdullah Gaznavi quoted the chief commander of the outfit Mahmood Shah as having said in a statement.
Shah condemned the installation of barbed wires so as to abstain people from offering their condolences at Mussawir’s home. “This is nothing but a human rights violations. The civilized societies uphold the honor of women and children in ages of war,” Shah said, “Mehbooba Mufti must prove her Kashmiri origin and her civility by ordering the release of the arrested.”
