Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind

Former Hizbul Mujahideen leader Zakir Musa, who had endorsed jihad and rule of shariah in Kashmir and declared his respect for al-Qaida, will now head a new outfit in Kashmir named Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind.

In a statement titled `Foundation of New Movement of Jihad in Kashmir' released by an al-Qaida-linked information network, Ansar-Ghazwat-ul-Hind declared that after the martyrdom of “heroic mujahid Burhan Wani, the jihad in Kashmir has entered a stage of awakening as the Muslim nation of Kashmir has committed to carry the flag of jihad to repel the aggression of tyrant Indian invaders, and through jihad, and with the aid of Allah only, we will liberate our homeland Kashmir“.

Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba lost no time in slamming the new jihad-leaning outfit. HM supreme command er Syed Salahuddin alleged the new outfit was part of a “conspiracy by the Indian establishment to create a division among the mujahideen in Kashmir and set the stage for bloodshed in Kashmir on the lines of what had happened in al-Qaeda and Islamic State-influenced theatres like Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey etc“.

LeT issued a statement on Thursday saying that “Indian conspiracies are being foiled ever since the locals and Hurriyat leaders forged unity among themselves...groups like al-Qaida and IS are being brought up to label the legitimate freedom struggle (in Kashmir) as terrorism“.
