Threatening to continue ‘intense’ attacks, a top Hizbul Mujahideen commander has asked J&K police personnel and officials of civil departments to support militants by following path of deserter-cops-turned militants “in order to save themselves from destruction”.
Hizb Divisional Commander, Yasin Yatoo in a video message released on social networking sites said the “Jihad is the only solution to India and its local henchman” and warned that “intense militant attacks against government forces will continue in future as well”.
Addressing the policemen and officials of civil departments, Yatoo said: “We want to tell the Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel including officers who are working with it and also to employees of other civil departments who fulfill Indian designs to follow the path of brother Naseer and brother Naveed and support militants in order to save their world(ly) life and hereafter from destruction.”
Naseer and Naveed deserted ranks of police along with service rifles and joined Hizbul Mujahideen.
While Naseer, who deserted the ranks in March 2015, was killed in April 2016, Naveed only last month fled to join Hizbul Mujahideen along with four rifles.
Both were working as constables in the police department and hail from Pulwama and Shopian respectively.
The Hizbul Mujahideen commander said the militants in Kashmir are united and claimed that Indian agencies as part of their conspiracies are trying to divide nation on the pretext of different slogans.
He asked the people to remain vigilant and foil designs of Indian agencies.
