'There's no need for jihad in Kashmir'

April 25, 2009
There's no need for jihad (holy war) in Kashmir, said a Pakistani terrorist arrested by the Army on Saturday.

Contrary to what he had been told in Pakistan, Kashmiris were not facing any oppression, he said.

Syed Moinullah Shah, cadre of the Pakistan-based Hizbul Mujahideen -- part of the group of 31 terrorists who crossed over the LOC recently -- said that after seeing the conditions of Kashmiri Muslims he wanted to go back rather than carry on with jihad.
