SRINAGAR, Dec 16: Lashkar-e-Taiba vowed on Tuesday to continue its armed struggle against India’s hold over occupied Kashmir.
A spokesman for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) repeated the group’s denial that it was behind the Mumbai carnage.
“Our fight for Kashmir’s freedom will continue. It is our only agenda,” LeT spokesman Abdullah Ghaznavi said in a telephone call to AFP’s correspondent in occupied Srinagar.He accused the Indian government of linking the “Kashmir freedom struggle with terrorism, to give legitimacy to its occupation of our land”.
“We want to reassure the international community that we are not in any way involved in the Mumbai attacks. We strongly condemn such attacks,” he said, calling on the UN to conduct an “impartial investigation into the evidence that India claims to have”.
“Lashkar has no links with Al Qaeda and Taliban. Our group is active in Kashmir to end India’s illegal occupation,” he said.—AFP
