Srinagar: Hizb-ul-Mujahideen on Wednesday termed the statement of Inspector General of Police (Jammu) M K Sinha as baseless in which he had alleged the outfit of being involved in drug smuggling.
In a statement issued to a local news gathering agency, a Hizb spokesperson said that Hizb-ul-Mujahideen is fighting for the cause of Islam and freedom of Kashmir. “Our organization and drugs are poles apart.”
“Before accusing Hizb of being involved in such menace, IGP Jammu must take a look inside and keep a check on black-sheep in its own ranks who for petty material gains are playing with the lives of innocent children and youth,” he said.
Hizb-ul-Mujahideen considers those dealing with narcotics as worse and dangerous than those involved in flesh trade, the spokesperson said.
