India’s stand against Pakistan over its role in the dastardly Uri attack which claimed the lives of 19 soldiers was become truth when posters claiming (LeT) Lashkar-e-Taiba’s involvement in the terror strike have emerged in Punjab province of neighbouring country.
The claim comes in spite of Pakistan’s rejection of India’s allegations that terrorists based in that country were involved in the Uri attack.
The posters announce that the LeT will be holding last rites in absentia for Gujranwala resident Muhammad Anas, one of the four terrorists behind Uri, and has asked local resident to join in.
The posters ask the residents to pray for the “lion-hearted holy warrior Abu Siraqa Muhammad Anas, who sent 177 Hindu soldiers to hell at the Uri Brigade camp in occupied Kashmir, and thus drank from the glass of martyrdom”.
The funeral is at Sadabahar Nursery near Bada Nala Nawab Chowk Girjakh Gujranwala.
The claim assumes significance since the Pakistan government has consistently denied the role of its Kashmir-centric terror groups in the Uri attack.
Following the Uri attack, New Delhi launched a diplomatic blitz to isolate Islamabad internationally.
Last month, 20 Indian Army jawans were killed and 19 others were injured in the terror strike in which four terrorists were neutralised.
Two maps depicting the general topography of Uri were recovered from the terrorists who stormed into the Army camp even as the army intensified efforts to identify the exact stretch along the Line of Control (LoC) from where they entered India.
The maps showed various places of Uri including the Brigade Headquarters and other installations of this town, about 75 km North of Srinagar. The place is strategically important in view of the power project operated by the National Hydel Power Corporation (NHPC).
