Karachi: Pakistan-based Kashmiri militant organisation Lashkar-e-Toiba on Monday denied ever threatening Indian captain Saurav Ganguly, batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar and hockey star Dhanraj Pillay.Indian media, quoting police and intelligence sources, reported earlier this month that Lashkar had threatened to kidnap Ganguly, Tendulkar and Pillay to bargain for political demands."It's a propaganda against us. Indians have a Lashkar-e-Toiba phobia and put blame on us even when rain and floods come in India," Lashkar spokesman Abdullah Muntazir told AFP."We have nothing against Ganguly, Tendulkar or for that matter any civilian. Our fight is with the Indian Army, which is committing atrocities in Kashmir."We are against terrorism and harassing civilians so there is no truth in these reports," Muntazir said."India have come to Pakistan and played here in 1997 and there was no trouble. We don't mind them playing the useless game of cricket anywhere in Pakistan," he said.India is scheduled to play an Asian Test championship game in Lahore in September this year, its first Test in Pakistan for 12 years.
