A few days after quitting the Hizbul Mujahideen as its Commander, Zakir Musa recently released a new video asserting that he will keep fighting Indian forces till India’s hold over Kashmir ends.
Musa, in a seven-minute video, said that none will be allowed to take undue advantage of the ideological differences between Kashmiri separatists.
“Let us first fight the Indian occupation and then take care of other problems,” he added.
“All the Mujahideen (militants) believe in Shariat (Islamic rule) and Shahadat (martyrdom),” he further added.
Musa also thanked the Al Qaeda for their pledge to “shariat and shahadat” and for using his slogan in their magazine. He further denied all talks of him having joined another organisation.
Musa’s latest video follows another video that surfaced last week where a voice purported to be that of Musa’s, could be heard saying that the heads of Hurriyat leaders will be chopped off for calling the Kashmir struggle a “political movement.”
Hours after the video, the militant outfit distanced itself from Musa’s statement, calling it “unacceptable” and that it reflects the personal opinion of “Zakir Musa”.
It was after this that Musa ended his association with the outfit.
