Militants term Delhi blasts as anti-human, anti-Islamic
November 03, 2005 17:22 IST
Several militant outfits active in Jammu and Kashmir have termed as 'anti-human and anti-Islamic' the multiple bomb blasts in New Delhi on October 29, in which about 63 people were killed and scores wounded.
The first to condemn the terror attacks in the national capital was the banned Lashkar-e-Tayiba. The militant outfit disassociated itself with the serial blasts.
A caller, who identified himself as Lashkar spokesman Abu Hanifa, told media organisations - "The claims of the Delhi police and other security agencies that the LeT was responsible for the blasts are baseless and unfounded."
LeT does not believe in carrying out terror attacks targetting innocent people, especially women and children, the spokesman said. "Islam does not permit such acts. There is no question of Lashkar being involved in Delhi bomb blasts," he added.
Several other militant outfits also ruled out their hand behind the Delhi blasts. Hizbul Mujahideen, the single largest indigenous militant group operating in J&K, the Al Badr and the Al Mansoorian have condemned the incident, saying such acts were against the spirit of Islam and humanity and were aimed at maligning the 'freedom movement of Kashmir'.
Hizb operational commander Ghazi Misbah-ud-din, in a telephonic statement to the local media, said some elements claiming the responsiblities of these acts were using the 'tags of fake outfits to malign the genuine militant groups'.
In a faxed statement to a news agency, Al Badr said the Inquilabi Group, which had owned the responsibility of the Delhi multiple blasts, never existed in Kashmir. The outfit also ruled out any Kashmiri militant group was involved in the Delhi terror attacks.
Al Mansoorian has also said that the blasts targetting the innocents, particularly women and children, were aimed at maligning the militants.
The moderate Hurriyat Conference also termed the Delhi multiple blasts as an 'act of terrorism'. "We strongly condemn the Delhi terror attacks and all acts of terrorism," Hurriyat Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq told a news conference recently.
"The Hurriyat Conference and the people of Jammu and Kashmir will always condone such dastardly acts and innocent killings at all fora, regardless of who committed such henious crimes," he added.
