Posters put up in Gujranwala point out to Lashkar hand in Uri attacks

In what appears to completely contradict Pakistan’s claims of not having any role in the Uri attack on Indian forces, Pakistan-based jihadist group Lashkar-e-Taiba has claimed responsibility of the Uri attacks. As reported by Indian Express, blatantly announcing in absentia last rites for one of the four terrorists who had attacked Indian Army’s 12 Brigade at Uri, the LeT has put up posters in the town of Gujranwala. 20 Indian soldiers were martyred and numerous killed in the attack and these posters are solid proof that the attacks were plotted on the Pakistani soil by a Pakistan-based group, a claim denied by the country.

Shockingly, these posters name one perpetrator as Gujranwala resident Muhammad Anas, who operated under the alias Abu Siraqa. They invite local residents to join namaaz prayers for the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s “lion-hearted holy warrior Abu Siraqa Muhammad Anas, who sent 177 Hindu soldiers to hell at the Uri Brigade camp in occupied Kashmir, and thus drank from the glass of martyrdom”.

Bearing images of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the head of the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s parent organisation, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the posters say the ghaybana namaaz janaza, or last rites held in the absence of the body of the deceased, will be held at Bada Nullah, near Girjakh, in the Punjab town of Gujranwala.

Until the posters were put up, the investigative agencies has struggled to ascertain the identitiy of those involved in the attack or produce evidence of the group that carried out the attack. Two German-manufactured eTrex global positioning sets had been recovered from the attackers, but one was too badly damaged by fire for data to be retrieved. A second is still being studied by forensic experts.

Though syringes, painkillers, other medications and packets of ready-to-eat food carried by the terrorists bore the markings of several Pakistani manufacturers, linking the perpetrators to that country, these offered no evidence on the identity or affiliations of the terrorists themselves.
