ISIS Has No Role In Kashmir: Lashkar

SRINAGAR — Two militant outfits, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Tehreek-ul-Mujhadeen, on Saturday distanced themselves from the Islamic State (ISIS) group saying “they see no scope for ISIS and al-Qaeda in Jammu and Kashmir”.

“Kashmiri people don’t want aid and support from an external group. They are capable enough to fight against the Indian aggression themselves,” LeT spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi told a local news agency CNS.

Refuting the claims of Indian Army Commander Lieutenant General Nimborkar in which he had said that there was a “possibility” that ISIS may join hands with Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba to launch attacks in India, the LeT spokesman quoting outfit Chief Mehmood Shah said that Kashmir ‘freedom struggle is Just for which lakhs of people have sacrificed their precious lives’. 

“Islamic State (Daish) is the production of anti-Islamic Western countries and India is part of this ploy. To link our struggle with Daish is mere propaganda unleashed by India and world community is well aware of this drama,” the statement read.
