It was Lashkar-e-Taiba whose terrorists attacked the Indian Army camp at Uri on September 18, 2016. Posters circulating in Gujranwala of The Punjab province of Pakistan proved that the terror group headed by Hafiz Mohammed Saeed was behind the attack in which 19 Indian soldiers attained martyrdom.
The posters called for funeral prayers in absentia of one of the Uri attackers. The prayer ceremony is to be organised by Jamat-ud-Dawa, the parent organisation of the terror outfit responsible for a number of attacks in India.
The funeral is to be held at Sadabahar Nursery near Bada Nala Nawab Chowk Girjakh.
Hafiz Saeed will address the gathering after the conclusion of the prayer session according to the message in the posters.
The terrorist for whom the prayers are to be held was Muhammad Anas, code named Abu-Saraqa. The poster brags that 177 Indian soldiers were killed by the terrorists.
According to reports, the poster reads: “Funeral prayers in absentia for Mujahid Bhai Abu Siraqa Muhammad Anas martyr for having killed 177 Hindu soldiers in Kashmir.”
But perhaps out of fear of an international backlash, the organisers have postponed the event.

The Pakistani government has denied any role in the attack but the posters belie their claims. The posters also highlight the fact that despite being a wanted terrorist, Hafiz Saeed has nothing to fear in Pakistan.
With the backing of the government and the Pakistani military, Saeed and figures such as him are able to control an increasingly weakening political establishment in Pakistan.
Instead of tightening the noose around the terrorists in his country, the Nawaz Sharif government has been trying to divert the attention of the international community to the Kashmir issue blaming India for the unrest.
Sharif himself organised a Black Day in memory of slain Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani. Pakistan has been trying to instigate the protestors in Kashmir while hiding its own atrocities in Balochistan.
