Indian agencies behind Jamia desecration, says HM Commander
Srinagar: Hizb ul Mujahideen commander Riyaz Naikoo has reportedly condemned the desecration of pulpit at Jamia Masjid Srinagar, last week. The HM Commander has alleged that the Islamic State (ISIS) flags are being waved at the ‘behest of Indian agencies’.
Naikoo, in a purported audio message, which has gone viral on social media on Sunday, said: “Youth don’t understand that it is a ploy by Indian agencies to defame our movement,” Naikoo can be heard saying in the audio message.
Urging people of Kashmir to remain aware of the ploys and conspiracies, Hizb’s field operational commander in Kashmir said: “We get swayed by emotions, but we should use our mind to understand enemies’ plots. Waving of ISIS flags is like going against the freedom movement and ditching the blood of martyrs.”
“There are people with vested interests who are pushing it (waving of IS flags). When we are alive they call us murtads (apostates) but when we embrace martyrdom they appear in our funerals with flags,” Naikoo said.
