LeT condemns Shujaat Bukhari’s killing, blames ‘Indian agencies’

Srinagar, June 15: Lashkar-e-Taiba has strongly condemned the killing of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari even as it blamed “Indian” agencies “enmity” towards every individual who is “loyal to the freedom movement.”

Dr. Abdullah Ghazanwi, militant organization’s spokesman in a statement issued to GNS quoting Mahmood Shah, Chief Lashkar-e-Taiba, said: “Killing of Shujaat Bukhari is a conspiracy hatched to suppress the voice of indigenous freedom struggle. Indian agencies have enmity towards every individual who is loyal to the freedom movement. The world must pay attention to India’s vicious and ill-fated conspiracies.”

He claimed that India was keen to “kill every individual who is vocal about the indigenous freedom struggle and India’s atrocities.”

“India’s former army chiefs themselves are taking part in such conspiracies. India’s motive behind such vicious act is to blame Mujahideen (militants) for their own wrongdoings. But the freedom fighters have never targeted the civilians,” he said, adding, “The killing of Shujat Bukhari is also a wrongdoing of India’s secret agencies which is a highly condemnable act. India can never hide its terrorist face from the world.” (GNS)
