The Lashker-e-Taiba (LET) militant outfit on Sunday claimed that it was not even "remotely involved" in the serial blasts that rocked Delhi last evening as such acts were "un-Islamic".
"We have no link with the serial blasts in Delhi.... We are even not remotely involved in such acts as we consider these un-Islamic," spokesman of the LeT Abdullah Gaznavi told PTI on phone.
Indian Mujahideen, a shadow amalgam of banned SIMI and Lashker-e-Taiba, claimed responsibility for the Delhi blasts through an e-mail sent to news organisations around the same time when the explosions occured last evening.
"We are active in Kashmir. To link Kashmiris with blasts that took place in India is aimed at maligning the ongoing movement," Gaznavi said.
"It is unfair to link the outfit with these blasts. We do not believe in triggering explosions at public places to kill innocent people," he said, adding "Islam is a religion of peace and does not allow targeting of innocent people through such acts."
