Islamic Emirate: Clarification of Islamic Emirate regarding upcoming conference in Qatar

Post via Islamic Emirate Afghanistan April 7th 2019

An intra-Afghan conference is planned for the middle of ongoing month in the capital of Qatar, Doha, about which the Islamic Emirate would like to clarify the following to our fellow countrymen:

1 – The meeting is a conference in which the participants will only be clarifying their views and policies and sharing their stance with others. The said conference is not a negotiations summit or meeting.

2 – No one will partake in the conference as a representative of the Kabul administration. Just like the previous Moscow Conference, any individual who is part of the Kabul administration and is listed as a participant will only participate in a personal capacity and share personal views.

3 – As the conference is convened for the purpose of achieving peace in Afghanistan and exchange of views among various sides therefore any participant disliked by anyone or deemed undeserving has been introduced from their own side and is associated with them. They have not been picked by the Islamic Emirate.

Islamic Emirate: Clarification regarding publication of participant list for intra-Afghan conference in Qatar

Post via Islamic Emirate April 2nd 2019

As all countrymen are already aware, an intra-Afghan conference will be held during the middle of this month in the capital of Qatar, Doha, in which a high-ranking delegation of Islamic Emirate shall also participate.

Yesterday a participant list of the conference was published showing the number of participants of Islamic Emirate greater than the actual figure. The reality is that only members of the negotiation team of Islamic Emirate and a limited number of extra leaders will be partaking, other names besides these are untrue. Moreover, the published list has not been confirmed, some names included are not present in the finalized list while other personalities included in the finalized list are not present in the published list.

Hence the published list is unreliable.

Kashmir: New audio message allegedly from Zakir Musa militant leader of Ansar Gazwat-ul-Hind emerges on social media

Photo of Zakir Musa posted on Twitter by Kashmir Intel

A new audio recently appeared on Twitter released by Al-Hurr Media the official media channel of Al Qaeda -Linked Ansar Gazwat-ul-Hind in Kashmir and alleged to be the ‘latest message from Emir Zakir Musa’, (age 25) entitled “Allah’s system on Allah’s land”.

In February 2019, writing on Zakir Musa in Jamestown Foundation, Fahan Zahid stated,

Musa symbolizes a new generation of Islamist terrorists operating in Indian Kashmir. This new generation appears far more radical in their views of violent Islamism and are actively utilizing social media to profess their views. Their members are slightly more educated than their predecessors. Born as Zakir Rashid Musa in the Tral area of Palwama district in 1990, Musa is a son of an Indian government civil servant. Musa studied engineering at Chandigarh College in Punjab province, but dropped out in his third year and joined Hizb ul Mujahedeen (HuM) in 2013 (HuffingtonPost.in, December 16, 2018). With HuM, he conducted terrorist attacks and engaged in other violent activities in the southern districts of Indian Kashmir. After the death of Burhan Wani, the young Emir of Hizb ul Mujahedeen, in an encounter with Indian security forces in 2016, Musa ascended to replace him. He soon left HuM to found AGH and declared his ambition to establish an Islamic Caliphate and state in Kashmir. He denounced both the Pakistani government and Hurriyat Conference (the political wing of the Indian Kashmir pro-independence parties). His anti-Hurriyat views were noticed when he threatened Kashmiri leaders for calling their struggle political, instead of Islamic.

He said:

Our struggle is for implementation of Shariah. It is an Islamic struggle… I am warning them (Hurriyat leaders) not to play their politics. If they again try to become thorns in our path, the first thing we will do is behead you and hang you in Lal Chowk. We will leave the infidels and kill you first (Wire India, May 15, 2017).

https://jamestown.org/brief/al-qaedas-man-in-the-indian-kashmir-insurgency-zakir-musa/

Back in December 2017, Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind headed up by Zakir Musa was struck a sharp blow when 6 of its militants were killed during a gunfight with security forces in Arampora village in the Tral area of South Kashmir. Although the power of the group was reduced and numbers of surviving fighters thought to be low (only 10 to 12 claimed to be remaining according to an article in Scroll.in) Munir Khan, additional director general of police was reported as saying, “when Zakir Musa is still alive, how can we say the group has been wiped off?” see following link,

In Kashmir, claimed Al Qaeda affiliate Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind may be struggling to survive

https://scroll.in/article/907269/in-kashmir-al-qaedas-putative-affiliate-ansar-ghazwat-ul-hind-may-be-struggling-to-survive

It would appear however that Munir Khan was wise in not wiping Zakir Musa totally from the picture of militancy in Kashmir at this present time.

Kashmir Intel (OSINT, Covering Kashmir, India) posted the following “highlights” from the new audio release alleging to be the voice of Zakir Musa (translated into English) on Twitter and using hashtag Kashmir jihad as follows:-

Zakir Musa begins his message by remembering Ansar Gazhwat-ul-Hind’s (AGH) Deputy Emir Rehan Khan and five other militants that were killed by Indian security forces in December, 2019. The he says AGH is ‘Free Jihad’ (by free jihad he means it’s not controlled by Pakistan/ISI).

Zakir Musa says “Logically speaking, the caravan of Free Jihad was supposed to have been stoped by now, because of different challenges AGH faces, but he receives help everyday, new militants join him. Militants have joined AGH not only from Kashmir, but from India/Pakistan too.”

Zakir Musa says “AGH is preparing for the day it starts its operations, threatens India security forces. He says lot of conspiracies are going on against Kashmir jihad, both India and Pakistan are working to totally dismantle it under American guidance”.

Imran Khan’s video message, inviting India for dialogue in February is played in Zakir Musa’s audio message. Zakir Musa then says Kashmir’s solution is only jihad, for Islamic rule. Pakistan, U.N and others can’t resolve it. No other solution is acceptable to Kashmiris”.

Zakir Musa says “Pakistan’s government, its military are the frontline enemies of Kashmir jihad, they kill mujahideen on one hand and on another hand claim to be fighting for Islam. He says Pakistan, an American slave is no different than its master.”

Zakir Musa says “Pakistan fools mujahideen of Kashmir for its own benefits. He then talks about Taliban, how they fought for 17 years and defeated America, which used all its military might to defeat Taliban, but still lost —only because Afghan Jihad was Free/Pure Jihad”

Zakir Musa says “Taliban are epitomes of Kashmiri militants. He then talks about how Kashmiris should help militants, why candle-light marches, shutting down shops/businesses, shutdowns and other forms of protests are useless, and how only armed struggle is fruitful”.

Zakir Musa then questions Pakistanis, says “You supported Kashmir jihad, sacrificed your life and money for it, what has changed now. Kashmiris are dying, and you are cleaning streets of Lahore/ Karachi, points out at LeT Chief Hafiz Saeed, who switched from jihad to politics”.

Zakir Musa says “Jihadi leaders in Pakistan have hurt Kashmir jihad, they take breaks from jihad whenever they like, they shunned jihad in Kashmir in 2003, which hurt Kashmiri jihad very badly, to the extent that it totally vanished, and had to be re-started from the scratch”.

Zakir Musa says “Pakistan went to war after India hurt it in Balakot, and when India was hurting/killing Kashmiris for decades, Pakistan was offering friendship agreements to India. Why didn’t Pakistan use its fighter jets when India was raping our mothers and sisters?”

Zakir Musa says “Pakistan does not have any sympathy for Kashmiris, it only wants it benefits from Kashmir. He also asks people not to vote in coming elections, and turns to Indian Muslims at last, tells them he is aware what is happening to them, asks them to join Jihad”. *End*

*its benefits

End

What level of impact Zakir Musa and his followers will have on the security situation in the region in the coming months remains to be seen!

Contaminated Blood: Letter to Scotsman regarding Lord Owen’s support to Lord Morris and alleged blocking of campaigners’ evidence by Michael Connarty

Michael Connarty former Chair of the APPG Haemophilia (2001 to 2010) and Labour MP for Linlithgo and East Falkirk allegedly ignored key evidence from haemophilia campaigners on Contaminated Blood 2002/3. Many victims have since died without justice.

Open letter sent to Shan Ross, Scotsman

Dear Shan, (Please forward to your Editor)

 

I am writing to you further to our telephone conversation today regarding the following article.

 

“Lord Owen accused of broken promises over evidence relating to infected blood imports” (February 23rd 2019)

Read more at: https://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/lord-owen-accused-of-broken-promises-over-evidence-relating-to-infected-blood-imports-1-4878209

 

You said that you wished to “draw a line under this article” however my campaign colleague Colette Wintle and I want to put our serious concerns in writing as the article does not reflect the considerable effort Lord David Owen has gone to over decades to share evidence and his personal documents on Contaminated Blood with Lord Alf Morris of Manchester and ourselves DESPITE numerous attempts to close him down often at a political level, trashing his documents under a non -existent 10 year rule as highlighted in a parliamentary question and answer and refusal of the Parliamentary Ombudsperson to investigate his complaints of serious “maladministration”.

 

We have known both Lord Owen and the late Lord Morris for many years and watched them work closely together. I am fortunate to have retrieved copies of some of the destroyed Lord Owen papers during my own research and subsequent dissertation awarded the Michael Young Prize 2009.

 

Please note the following

 

1) Lord Owen has spoken out and indeed acted to improve blood safety from the 1970s onwards as highlighted in Hansard, letters and personal papers and has the support of many haemophilia contaminated blood campaigners.

 

2) Back in 2001 Lord Owen played a key part in speaking out to journalist Louella Houldcroft of the Newcastle Journal contributing to the multi awarded “Bad Blood campaign which she ran jointly with my late husband and I under the name Haemophilia Action UK (previously Haemophilia North). This sparked interest again and helped kick start a revived campaign many press had earlier stated was a “dead issue”. See following articles we initiated where Lord Owen spoke out, some are more detailed in hardcopy.

 

“Owen’s outrage at failure over blood” (Newcastle Journal, August 2nd 2001, Hardcopy Archived)

 

This was followed up by an article we helped organize a day later which was featured in the Guardian and elsewhere.

 

“Haemophiliacs infections due to ‘broken promises’” (Guardian, August 3rd 2001)

 

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2001/aug/03/health.healthandwellbeing

 

“Owen claims infection of haemophiliacs unnecessary” (RTE August 3rd 2001)

 

https://www.rte.ie/news/2001/0803/17534-lindsay/

 

“Owen demands inquiry into infected blood scandal” (August 19th 2002)

 

“I have no wish to go to court, but I have no doubt whatsoever that if someone starts to take serious legal action, the government hasn’t got a leg to stand on.” Lord Owen, August 19th 2002

 

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2002/aug/19/NHS.medicineandhealth

 

HIV blood disaster papers ‘were pulped’ (July 12th 2007, time of Archer Inquiry)

 

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1557187/HIV-blood-disaster-papers-were-pulped.html

 

Just a few of many articles with Lord Owen which we have archived digital and hardcopy.

 

 

3) Colette and I worked with both Lord Owen and Lord Morris at the time of the Archer Inquiry and Lord Morris had nothing but praise for Lord Owen whom he respected greatly. Owen also had mutual respect for Lord Morris which has continued beyond Alf’s death in 2012 and indeed Lord Owen delivered the keynote address at an event launching the Alf Morris Fund for Independent Living.

 

“It’s often said that you can’t do anything in politics but Alf demonstrated that an individual MP’s commitment to a cause could create major change in public life.”

 The Rt Hon The Lord Owen CH

 

https://www.dlf.org.uk/node/706

 

4) Lord Morris would ring myself and Colette prior to debates in the Lords and not only did Lord Owen share his documents with Lord Morris which Alf confirmed to us at the time but Alf often received them a second time from myself. Both participated along with Colette and I (as key witnesses) at the Archer Inquiry.

5) Lord Owen took part in numerous TV and radio interviews and documentaries that we helped initiate such as the awarded Meridian Blood Brothers documentary and BBC Newsnight April 2007 nominated for RTS award.

6) Many years later in 2016 Lord Owen spoke out again, reiterating what he had said many times before to us in an event organized by new campaigner Jason Evans

 

Michael Connarty

 

Colette and I have been trawling through old documents and letters from 2002/2003 and we remember Michael Connarty well and we allege he did a very good job of blocking campaigners who tried to show him key evidence when he was Chair of the APPG for Haemophilia and ignoring this has tragically delayed justice to Contaminated Blood victims for years. Letters to Michael Connarty and MPs and Connarty’s replies when put together with other evidence including the lies spread by the Blairite government on the Eire settlement and what was happening behind the scenes to block haemophiliacs getting to court and how many in key positions ensured the damning evidence that we held on US prison blood was not going to be addressed and you can understand why Connarty and others are now looking for scapegoats! This evidence will be presented to the Infected Blood Inquiry.

 

Colette and I both feel that Michael Connarty should be investigated by the Infected Blood Inquiry particularly during his time as Chair of the APPG Haemophilia along with the Haemophilia Society and made to address why long standing campaigners were both excluded from key meetings (as we still are today) and their crucial evidence regarding the use of US prison blood and other issues ignored.

 

Your sincerely
