LASHKAR SUP­PORTS KASH­MIR UN­REST

The Sunday Guardian - - Front Page -

SRINAGAR: The restive Kash­mir Val­ley stayed calm but tense on Satur­day — the 22nd day of cur­few and sep­a­ratist-called shut­down — as the glob­ally banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) mil­i­tant out­fit threw its weight be­hind se­ces­sion­ist lead­ers, ask­ing peo­ple to fol­low their pro­gramme in “let­ter and spirit”. In a state­ment to Srinagar-based news­pa­pers, the LeT, based in Pak­istan and blamed for the 2008 Mum­bai at­tack, said that it “re­spects the as­pi­ra­tions of the Kash­miri peo­ple for their in­de­pen­dence from In­dia. Make the har­tal (shut­down) calls suc­cess­ful and fol­low the pro­grammes is­sued by joint re­sis­tance lead­er­ship re­li­giously,” the state­ment said.
