Masood Azhar's chilling message: 'My army adores death'
'Pakistan’s rulers have reduced their own country into a heap of fire and explosive.'
New Delhi: Jash-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar has warned his 'enemies' that any action against the jihadis operating against India from Pakistan will have dangerous consequences.
Azhar, one of India's most wanted terrorist, wrote in Peshawar-based jihadi magazine al-Qalam that his 'army' loves death.
The Indian Express quoted Azhar as saying, “I have prepared an army that adores death. To uproot this army is not in the power of our enemies. God willing, this army will not let our enemies celebrate, nor occasion for anyone to miss my presence.
Azhar also issued a veiled warning to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for engaging in talks with with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.
“The rulers of our country are sad that we have disturbed their friends. They wish to arise on the Day of Judgment to be judged as friends of (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi and (former Prime Minister) Atal Behari Vajpayee,”Azhar wrote.
The jihadi mastermind said any action by Pakistani government against mosques, seminaries and jihad is dangerous for the integrity of the country itself.
Chiding Sharif, Azhar added: “Acting on the orders of others, Pakistan’s rulers have reduced their own country into a heap of fire and explosive. Every single one of them comes, spreads fire and then escapes abroad”.
Azhar is believed to be the mastermind of the deadly Pathankot terror attack that left 7 security men dead. He was also the brain behind the Kandahar hijacking episode which led to his release from an Indian prison.
