Rawalkot (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir), June 8: Members of the banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the outfit led by the 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, have reportedly spoken from a public platform about assassinating Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said ANI on Friday. Speaking at the Friday sermon during the holy month of Ramzan, Maulana Bashir Ahmad Khaki, a senior JuD member, said “Flag of Islam will be hoisted in India and America. (PM) Modi will be killed. India and Israel will get disintegrated as more and more martyrs will be produced.” (Also read: Kulbushan Jadhav Being Ill-treated, Says Lashkar Founder) Also Read - Kangana Ranaut Stands by Her PoK Statement as She Leaves Mumbai With a 'Heavy Heart'
Maulana Bashir reportedly instigated the listeners to wage a Jihad (holy war) during Ramzan. He said, “Ramadan is the pious month of ‘Jihad-o-Qital’ (Jihad and killing). Those who attain martyrdom while waging Jihad, doors of heaven remain open.” Asking the people in PoK to allow their boys to join the Jihad, he said, “JuD cadres are still waging Jihad in Kashmir and fighting with Indian forces in Kashmir. They are waging Jihad for freedom of Kashmir and destruction of India.” He also sought donations to further the ’cause’ of JuD and said, “I appeal (to) the participants to donate generously (wheat, ration and cash) during the month of Ramadan to the JuD and for the mujahideen waging Jihad. I also urge women to donate their sons and cash for mujahideen who are waging Jihad in Kashmir.” Also Read - Kangana Ranaut's 'Mumbai Feels Like PoK' Tweet Triggers Wide Criticism, Bollywood Celebs Speak
