Jihadi mindset will never change: Anas Haqqani glorifies Mahmud Ghaznavi, who 'smashed the idol of Somnath'

Anas Haqqani hailed Ghaznavi, who attacked the Somnath temple in Gujarat in the 10th century, broke the idol and added these shrines' inspire us with freedom, pride and courage'.

 

In an incident that shows the unchanging jihadi attitude of the current Islamist dispensation in Afghanistan, the leader of the Haqqani network, Anas Haqqani, who is part of the Taliban government, is seen glorifying Mahmud Ghaznavi for 'smashing the idol of Somnath'. Anas Haqqani visited the tomb of Mahmud Ghaznavi, who attacked the Somnath temple in Gujarat in the 10th century and even broke the idol.

Anas Haqqani hailed Ghaznavi for 'establishing a strong Muslim rule' in Ghazni and smashing the idol at Somnath temple. He further added that these shrines' inspire us with freedom, pride and courage'.

Haqqani tweeted on Tuesday, "Today, we visited the shrine of Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi, a renowned Muslim warrior & Mujahid of the 10th century. Ghaznavi (May the mercy of Allah be upon him) established a strong Muslim rule in the region from Ghazni & smashed the idol of Somnath."

The Taliban leader's comment comes at a time when the Taliban government in Afghanistan is desperately trying to establish good ties with India.

Responding to the Taliban leader's insensitive comment, BJP leader Kapil Mishra tweeted, "Somnath is still standing high again But cities of Ghazanavi, Ghori, Ghazni, Taimoor are perishing in poverty and hunger".
