19 November 2000
ISLAMABAD: Rejecting the Indian cease-fire offer, Harkatul Mujahideen has announced to continue Jehad in Indian held Kashmir. In a press statement Sunday, Harkatul Mujahideen spokesman Amiruddin Mughal termed Indian cease-fire offer for one month as deceiving. ''Since Indian rulers and army do not respect humanity how could they claim to respect the holy month'', he observed. He said that Harkatul Mujahideen would speed up its struggle during the holy month as major Islamic wars were fought in this month. Meanwhile, reacting to the Indian cease-fire offer, a spokesman of Al-Badr Mujahideen termed it a conspiracy against Jehad. Talking to BBC, the spokesman said that cease-fire offer by India was mere an eyewash. He said that since ‘Jang-e-Badr’ was fought in Ramazan hence Al-Badr would speed up its struggle during the holy month. ''Armed struggle would continue until the Indian forces are quit the valley'', he vowed.
