In a statement congratulating the Taliban over its comeback to power in Afghanistan after a long war of two decades, terrorist outfit Al-Qaeda has now called for “liberation” of Kashmir and other so-called Islamic lands from the “clutches of the enemies of Islam”, Hindustan Times.
The statement from Al-Qaeda followed the Taliban's declaration that Afghanistan had gained "full independence".
Congratulating the Taliban, Al-Qaeda said, "0’ Allah! Liberate the Levant, Somalia, Yemen, Kashmir and the rest of the Islamic lands from the clutches of the enemies of Islam. 0’ Allah! Grant freedom to Muslim prisoners across the world."
The statement added, "Congratulations to the Islamic Ummah on the victory granted by Allah in Afghanistan!"
The statement further said, "We praise the Almighty, the Omnipotent, who humiliated and defeated America, the head of disbelief. We praise Him for breaking America’s back, tarnishing its global reputation and expelling it, disgraced and humiliated, from the Islamic land of Afghanistan."
The message also read, "Afghanistan is undoubtedly a graveyard of empires and an impregnable fortress of Islam. With the defeat of the Americans, this is the third time that the Afghan nation, within a span of less than two centuries, has successfully defeated and expelled an invading imperialist power."
