Mahmood Shah, Chief Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Monday paid tribute to Lashkar Commander Abu Al-Qasim Shafat Hussain, slain in Arizal, Badgam.
He said: “Educated youth has raised a new tide for Kashmir struggle. The youth have understood that there is no mightier answer to India’s atrocities other than gun.”
“Abu Al-Qasim was an educated young man who opted to pick up gun after his graduation to seek just rights and scarified his life for the cause,” he said, adding “he is an exemplary model for the youth”.
Mahmood Shah thanked the people “who despite relentlessly facing obstructions gathered in late commander’s funeral and paid their tribute to him”.
