Srinagar, Mar 13: The Ansar Ghazwatul Hind has owned Muhammad Taufeeq, who it said was killed with two other militants in a gunfight with government forces at Hakoora in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
Three militants were killed in an encounter with forces. While two of the slain militants were identified as Eisa Fazili, of Soura Srinagar, and Syed Owais Shafi, of south Kashmir’s Kokernag.
Taufeeq, Ansar said, “started his jihadi journey in 2017 after making hijrah (migration) from India’s Hyderabad city to the mountains of Kashmir and was among the first in the ranks of Ansar Ghazwatul Hind”.
“His jihadi names were Sultan Zabul Al-Hind and Abu Zarr Al Hindi,” it added.
Terming Taufeeq as “descendant and heir of Mujahid and conqueror of India Mehmood Ghaznavi”, the Ansar in its official website Al-Nasr said, “Muhammad Taufeeq was martyred along with two other mujahideen Eesa Fazili and Syed Owais in battle, on 13 March 2018 in the south Kashmir district of Islamabad (Anantnag).”
“Ansar Ghazwatul Hind congratulates Islamic Ummah on the martyrdom of the mujahid and preacher Muhammad Taufeeq and requests the Ahl-e-Imaan to pray for this great son of the Ummah. Ansar Ghazwatul Hind congratulates the respected mother and father of Muhammad Taufeeq and requests them to pray and keep patien(ce),” the global organisation said.
Ansar termed the “martyrdom” of Taufeeq as “a cry of truth for the Muslims of India”. (GNS)
