Srinagar: Close on the heels of militants beheading three girls and a woman in Jammu and Kashmir to enforce a diktat on wearing burqa, Pakistan based Lashker-e-Taiba has warned those selling alcohol of 'severe action' if they did not stop their 'un-Islamic' business immediately. Official sources on Saturday said LeT put up posters at a number of places in Kulgam on Friday warning of severe action against those in wine business terming it as un-Islamic. The posters have been removed by the police, they said. Militants had last month beheaded three girls and a woman in Rajouri ostensibly for not wearing burqas.
