ISLAMABAD, Feb 10 (Reuters) – An al Qaeda commander has warned India of more attacks like the recent assault on Mumbai and said its economic interests would be targeted if it retaliates against Pakistan.

In a video seen by Reuters on Tuesday, Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, commander of al Qaeda operations in Afghanistan, referred to India’s “humiliation” over Mumbai and warned of more attacks.

“I want to convey a brief message to the government of India that mujahideen will not let you attack Muslims in Pakistan,” the bespectacled militant said in the tape released by al Qaeda’s As-Sahab media wing. Mujahideen are holy warriors.

“If you make that mistake then you should know, with the command of Allah, you will have to pay a heavy price and ultimately you will be destined to humiliation,” he said.

In August, Pakistani television channels reported Abu al-Yazid had been killed in fighting with Pakistani forces in the Bajaur tribal region on the Afghan border.

Abu al-Yazid made no claim of responsibility for the Mumbai attack but he praised the perpetrators as “martyrs”.

“We will bring mujahideen and fidayeen from the whole Islamic world to confront you and target your economic interests everywhere until your entire system collapses,” he said. Fidayeen are fighters willing to sacrifice themselves in battle.

Abu al-Yazid also called on Pakistanis to rise up and overthrow their government led by President Asif Ali Zardari, widower of assassinated former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
