New Delhi: A senior commander of terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba has proclaimed the dead gunman (Ajmal Amir Kasab) a ‘hero’ and said that he will continue to inspire more attacks in future. He also vowed to retaliate the execution of Kasab.

“He was a hero and will inspire other fighters to follow his path,” the commander of the Pakistani militant group accused of masterminding the attack said on telephone from an undisclosed location.

Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving Pakistani terrorist responsible for the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, was hanged at Pune's Yerawada Jail on Wednesday morning.

A Hindu article, documents the response in Pakistan after the news of Kasab’s hanging was announced. According to the report, the news dropped down in the headlines as the day progressed, unlike in India, where it continues to be a screaming headline.

The article also documents how the village in Faridkot, Pakistan, is staying away from speaking about Kasab.
