Al-Qaeda chief al-Zawahiri, one of the world’s most dreaded terror outfits, has released a video about Kashmir. In the 47-minute video, titled ‘Repeated Tragedies in Kashmir and Palestine’, Zawahiri has criticised Arab countries for supporting India by comparing Kashmir to Palestine. The video begins with anti-India photographs in Kashmir, in which people are seen pelting stones. A similar picture of Palestine is also shown.
This video has been released by As-Sabah Media. Since the 9/11 attacks in the US, the world’s most wanted terrorist and al-Qaeda chief al-Zawahiri is seen spewing venom about Kashmir in the video message. Our job is the work of the Muslim Umrah, the Umrah whose land is being divided and natural resources are being stolen, says Zawahiri. The video depicts pictures of Kashmir and Palestine in many places, as well as leaders and the army.
Al-Zawahiri compares Jammu and Kashmir to the annexation of Jerusalem to Israel over the abrogation of Article 370. Al-Zawahiri says that the decision of the Hindu government of India to merge Kashmir with India is like a slap in the face of Muslim governments that rule Muslim countries. Al-Zawahiri also criticises the Saudi Arabian and UAE governments for supporting the Modi government on the decision to scrap Article 370.
