Jammu: While security agencies are trying hard to fix the gaps after the deadly terrorist attack on the CRPF convoy, a top commander of Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) and brother-in-law of its chief Hafiz Saeed has praised his fighters for the June 25 attack.
Abdur Rehman Makki, who is currently the second-in-command of JuD, reportedly praised the two terrorists by saying, ''two lions surrounded the convoy of jackals,'' while referring to the June 25 attack..
While addressing a rally in Gujranwala in Pakistan, where he shared the stage with Hafiz Saeed, Makki urged Pakistanis to join them to “wage a war against India”.
A video of the event which was uploaded on Sunday, the day after the attack, shows Makki as saying, “I was going to a meeting in Rahim Yar Khan, when the Indian media began screaming ‘in Pampore, our army, our heroes were coming from training in big buses, two terrorists surrounded them’. But two lions surrounded the convoy of jackals.”
Mocking the Indian armed forces, Makki said the Indian generals announced the death of eight personnel.
The video of his speech was posted on some Facebook accounts with links to JuD, a front outfit of the terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Toiba, founded by Hafiz Saeed which is now banned in Pakistan.
While Makki was among the first speakers at the rally, Saeed was among the last. The rally lasted for about 90 minutes, claimed a report in the Indian Express.
On his turn, Saeed told the rally that “when PM Narendra Modi was signing agreements in Washington, the Srinagar-based XVI Corps commander General Hooda (Northern Army Commander Lt Gen D S Hooda) was saying they have lost the war in Kashmir”.
