ISLAMABAD: Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, executed in India on Wednesday for his role in the 2008 Mumbai massacre, was a “hero” who will inspire more attacks, a senior commander of the militant group accused of masterminding the attack told news agency Reuters.
“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, The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) expressed shock on Wednesday over Kasab’s execution.
“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 Ehsanullah Ehsan told Reuters.
