Srinagar: Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, newly appointed chairman of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, has said that ISIS and Daesh have nothing to do with Kashmir.
In an interview with the Greater Kashmir, Sehrai said that those ideologies will never be accepted.
“Daesh and Al-Qaeda have nothing to do with our movement and we will never accept them,” Sehrai said. He urged youth not to get swayed by the extremist ideology and understand Islam in its correct perspective.
Sehrai, while expressing concern over the raising of ISIS flags during the funeral of Eisa Fazili, said that TeH will chart out a plan to stop them after their elections.
“Some elements are creating confusion among masses by raising ISIS flags at the funeral of militants. We have kept a close watch on them, and will soon chart out a plan to stop them after TeH elections.”
Sehrai, however, expressed concern over the “ISIS thinking” finding resonance among a section of youth. “It could be the handiwork of agencies keen to defame the Kashmir movement and undermine its indigenous character,” he said.
“Our agenda is simple. We only want Kashmir to be free from Indian occupation. Nothing else”.
Hurriyat leader said that there was no role in Kashmir for the organisations with an international agenda.
