Srinagar: Reacting to the purported audio statement of its militant Zakir Musa in which he had threatened Hurriyat leaders, Hizbul Mujahideen Saturday said that the outfit does not subscribe to the statement.
In an emailed statement, HM spokesman Saleem Hashmi said that the “militant organisation does not subscribe to the statement.”
“Such a statement is unacceptable to us. It reflects the personal opinion of Zakir Musa. Post Burhan Wani’s martyrdom, the nation and the leadership are united at every front and taking ahead the struggle for freedom and Islam to its end,” Hashmi said in the statement.
“At this juncture, any such statement or step will strengthen the occupying and imperialistic forces. Hizbul Mujahidin, the guardian of lakhs of sacrifices and freedom, is assessing the statement and won’t hesitate to take steps for the betterment of the freedom movement. We appeal the pro-freedom youth not give much attention and discourage such statements coming out in the media,” the spokesman said. (KNS)
