Over a month after 20 soldiers were killed in Uri attack in Jammu and Kashmir, terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba has claimed responsibility for the barbarous act.
The terror organisation will be holding last rites for one of the four terrorists who attacked Indian Army’s 12 Brigade at Uri. Posters informing about the last rites have been pasted all across Gujranwala in Pakistan. While Pakistan has been denying the role of LeT in the attack, the posters come as a direct evidence vindicating India’s stand.
As per a report in The Indian Express, the posters name one perpetrator as Gujranwala resident Muhammad Anas, who operated under the alias Abu Siraqa. The posters are calling out the residents to join prayers for “Lashkar-e-Taiba’s lion-hearted holy warrior Abu Siraqa Muhammad Anas, who sent 177 Hindu soldiers to hell at the Uri Brigade camp in occupied Kashmir, and thus drank from the glass of martyrdom,” the report said.
The last rites held in the absence of the body of the deceased will be held at Bada Nullah, near Girjakh, in the Punjab town of Gujranwala. The posters also bear the images of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the head of LeT’s parent organisation – the Jamaat-ud-Dawa.
On September 18, a brazen attack at an army base camp in Uri in Kashmir had led to the death of 20 Indian Army soldiers. The armed terrorists had hurled grenades into the army tents and barracks while the soldiers were sleeping. India has repeatedly hinted at the role of Pakistan-based organisation Jaish-e-mohammad in the attacks.
The relations between India and Pakistan have been at an all-time low following the attacks.
