Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has confirmed that he has links with firebrand separatist leader Asiya Andrabi and was also in touch with Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, who was killed in an encounter on July 8 in Kashmir.
An exclusive video released by news agency ANI shows the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks mastermind addressing Andrabi as his sister. Andrabi is Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief. Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) is a radical women's organisation. DeM, led by Asiya Andrabi, has been hoisting Pakistani flags every year to mark Pakistan Day and Independence Day of the country on August 14.
In the sensational video, Saeed, an United Nations designated terrorist, is seen revealing that Burhan Wani called him a few days before his death and said his last wish was to “talk to me".
The JuD chief is further heard saying that Wani told him that his wish has been fulfilled and he was now ready for martyrdom. The video was shot during JuD's rally “Kashmir Caravan" which was held from Lahore to Islamabad to protest against the unrest and deaths in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.
Saeed said that he had a word with 'sister' Andrabi who was crying for 15 minutes. “I told her do not cry, we are on our way," the JuD chief was seen saying. He warned the Indian establishment to accept Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani's 4 point Kashmir solution, or “be ready for war".
Kashmir has been witnessing huge protests ever since Wani was gunned down by the security forces.
