Hizb asks militants to stay away from public protests

Srinagar: Hizbul Mujahideen has censured Pakistan for hosting Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the SAARC ministerial conference.

The militant outfit asked the Pakistan authorities that welcoming Rajnath Singh at the time when Kashmiri people are being killed and wounded by forces amounts to adding “salt on their wounds”.

In an emailed to statement to KNS, Hizb spokesman Syed Sadaqat said that Syed Salah-ud-din presided over a meeting of United Jehad Council of Jammu and Kashmir to “assess the ongoing struggle”.

“Pakistan should give up the life-less and traditional Kashmir policy and use all its resources and influence to awaken the criminal silence of World community or provide complete support to Kashmiris,” the spokesman quoted Salah-ud-din as saying in the meeting.

The Hizb chief asked the militants in Kashmir not to participate or show up in protests rallies as “it will give forces an excuse to fire on unarmed protesters.”

Salah-ud-din said appealed to the people of Kashmir, especially youth to maintain unity and follow the programmes of united resistance leadership. “United and sincere leadership is a good practical step and joint programmes will help us in taking forward our struggle,” he said.

The UJC chief said continuous curfew, using bullets and pellets on protesters are aimed to crush the ongoing freedom struggle in Kashmir.

“If the situation continues to remain same then a big human tragedy would occur in Kashmir.” (KNS)
