Islamabad: Ajmal Kasab, executed in India on Wednesday for his role in the 2008 Mumbai massacre, was a “hero” who will inspire more attacks, said a senior commander of the Pakistani militant group accused of masterminding the attack.
“He was a hero and will inspire other fighters to follow his path,” the commander of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Taliban movement expressed shock on Wednesday over the execution of the lone survivor of the terrorist squad that killed 166 people in a rampage through Mumbai in 2008.
“There is no doubt that it’s very shocking news and a big loss that a Muslim has been hanged on Indian soil,” Taliban spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan told Reuters.
