Islamabad, Feb 16: Even as India is yet to come to terms with the devastating Pune blast, top al Qaeda leader, Ilyas Kashmiri has warned India of similar attacks in the coming days, Asia Times Online reported.

In a message sent to Asia Times Online, Kashmiri vowed of continuing attacks on India until the Army leaves Kashmir, adding that Muslims have not forgotten the atrocities inflicted on them.

"We, the mujahideen of 313 Brigade, vow to continue attacks all across India until the Indian Army leaves Kashmir and gives the Kashmiris their right of self-determination. We assure the Muslims of the subcontinent that we will never forget the massacre of the Muslims in Gujarat and the demolition of Babri Masjid," it said.

The message by the leader of the 313 Brigade also carried a stern warning to international community against sending sportspersons to India to take part in the upcoming major sports events.

"We warn the international community not to send their people to 2010 Hockey World Cup, IPL and Commonwealth Games... Nor should their people visit India - if they do, they will be responsible for the consequences," he threatened.

However, Kashmiri's message did not claim responsibility for the Pune blast which rocked the nation on Saturday, Feb 13.

"The message does not specifically claim responsibility for the bombing, but implies the Brigade's involvement," the news portal said.

The Pune blast, which came just ahead of the Indo-Pak peace talks, claimed 10 lives, including two foreigners, while 57 people were wounded.

David Coleman Headley,accused in 26/11 terror attacks is also believed to be in touch with Kashmiri while plotting terror attacks on Mumbai, including attacks on the Danish Newspaper.
