Mahmood Shah, Chief Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Thursday condemned the killing of a youth in Kupwara.
Shah in his e-mailed statement said: “The outrage of forces was a reaction to the killing of elite commandos by handful of militants.”
He said: “Indian army yet again showed its bravery on unarmed civilians. Forces have a habit of sending thousands of trembling soldiers to battle field now to fight few militants, but they become lion when they go out of the battlefield. Only cowards show their bravery on unarmed men, women and children to compensate the inferiority complex that the battlefield gives them.”
