New Delhi: PAKISTAN-BASED militant outfit Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) has said the 'jihad' in Jammu and Kashmir 'is in final phase' and vowed to carry on their operations. 'I believe that in Kashmir, jihad is in the final phase. We will continue with our jihad, ' LeT chief Hafiz Mohd Sayed told a portal. He said 'the more the Mujahideen attack occur, the chances of solving the Kashmir dispute get brighter,' he said. Sayed said India 'will lose a lot' if it did not allow Jammu and Kashmir Jamaat-e-Islami chief Syed Ali Shah Geelani to join the Hurriyat Cconference delegation for its proposed visit to Pakistan.
