Pakistan based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) which is suspected to be behind the recent terror attack in Uri that killed 18 Army soldiers, has released a message from its chief Masood Azhar mocking the Indian government and the military.

With India upping the ante against terror emanating from Pakistan, the JeM chief took a dig at its leadership, saying `India's heroism is restricted to Bollywood films.'

 

According to a report in DNA, the terror outfit posted an audio clip ridiculing India on their online mouthpiece Rangonoor along with an Urdu script on September 19, under Azhar’s pen name Saadi. The audio was released as a short new bulletin titled 'The real fountainhead of Power'.

In the audio, Azhar mocked Indians for giving too much credence to ‘unrealistic’ Bollywood movies and believing that the country is invincible like the heroes and soldiers in its cinema.

"The heroes of its Bollywood movies who are afraid of their own shadows, portray India as invincible and Pakistan as a weak nation. These heroes who are full of gas but in their movies they attack Pakistan, they come here to destroy camps and take away the Mujaheedins. Not a single bullet touches them, but their one shot kills scores of Mujaheedins,'' he says.

He continued his tirade, asserting that in real life, it was 4 jihadis who killed 18 soldiers and not the other way around. The JeM chief, however, did not claim any responsibility for the Uri attack.

Azhar went on to take jibes at India for vowing to wipe his group out and claimed that on the contrary, his organisation was only growing and attracting more youth.

“Thousands of youth who were unaware of JeM and jihad, discovered our group and its purpose through Google…they started reading the group's literature, books and statements online. Now attracted by our ideology all these youngsters left their routine life and have decided to answer the call of jihad,'' he said.
