Srinagar: Hizbul Mujahideen asked Pakistan on Friday to end its diplomatic and economic relations with India, rather than welcoming Indian home minister Rajnath Singh in the country.
Rajnath is arriving in Islamabad on August 13 for SAARC conference. In a statement, Hizb termed likened his visit to “rubbing salts into the wounds of Kashmiris”.
“This (Singh’s visit) can have negative and harmful effects,” said the statement, quoting Hizb chief Syed Salah-ud-din.
Salah-ud-din called pro-India politicians as “sellers of nation” and supported Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani’s appeal to the people to boycott these politicians.
“Some agencies are busy in sabotaging the ongoing freedom movement in Kashmir. Burhan Muzaffar Wani’s blood has united the Kashmiri nation and its leaders on a single platform for achieving the goal,” he said.
