"When Indian forces built up pressure in 2002, Pakistan had become submissive." In a 11 page message issued by the al Qaeda, its leader takes on the Pakistani agencies and calls on Kashmiris not to trust them.
The al Qaeda has now thrown its hat into the Kashmir ring and has accused terrorist state Pakistan of betraying the people of the Valley. In a message titled, "Jihad of Kashmir- A Call to Reflection and Action," the outfit says that fighting a battle under the supervision and cooperation of Pakistan is as good as wasting time.
The message further states that Pakistani agencies only fulfill their own interests. The message that runs into 11 pages is released in Hindi, English, Bengali and Urdu.
If Jihad is not liberated from the influence of the Pakistani agencies, the oppression of the people of Kashmir would never end, the message also reads.
The al Qaeda also says that in the year 2002, when the Indian army had built up force along the border and showed some force, the Pakistanis had become submissive. To show resolve is not part of the Pakistan army's doctrine, the message further states.
The message also calls on the Kashmiris to say good bye to the Pakistanis. It is time to distinguish between friends and enemies. The Pakistanis are not sympathisers they are selfish, the message further reads.
The Pakistanis are traitors who betrayed the people of Kashmir and hence it is time to say good bye to them, the al-Qaeda's Usama Mahmoud also says in the message.
