Look for peaceful solution: Salahuddin
SRINAGAR: Hizbul Mujhadeen on Monday said that Indian agencies are trying to give a communal colour to the ongoing uprising in Kashmir by posting “fake posters threatening Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir, particularly in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district and other parts”.
“Indian Agencies are yet again trying to make Kashmiri Pandits scapegoats. We want to make it clear there is no militant organisation by the name of ‘Lashkar Islami.’ Indian agencies are using this fake name to threaten Kashmiri Pandits and give communal colour to our freedom struggle,” Hizb spokesperson, Salim Hashmi, quoted deputy commander, Saifullah Khalid, as saying in a statement issued to a local news agency CNS here.
“The militants who are up in arms against India can’t think of threatening Kashmiri Pandits. India wants to play Kashmiri Pandits card again. We want to make people aware about this conspiracy and appeal Kashmiri Pandits not to fall prey to this ‘game’ of agencies.”
He said that India should read the writing on the wall.
It would be in the interest of India to understand the demand of the people and resolve Kashmir issue as per the wishes and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he added.
“The blood drops of Burhan have given birth to thousands of Burhans. Struggle will continue till it is taken to logical conclusion,” he said, paying tributes to the civilians killed recently in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, United Jihad Council (UJC) chief, Syed Salahuddin, has urged Pakistan to find a peaceful solution to the ongoing violence in Kashmir, a media report said.
“If a peaceful solution is not reached, then Pakistan should consider cutting off diplomatic ties with India over the killing of Burhan Muzaffar Wani in Kashmir,” Pakistan-based Dawn newspaper reported on Monday.
He, as per the report, was speaking at a presser at Karachi.
“The young commander’s killing gave new meaning to the struggle for India-held Kashmir,” Salahuddin said. “Any resistance by the Kashmiris in the face of the extreme violence perpetrated by the Indian troops will end up being the responsibility of the international community besides India.”
Karachi emir of the JI Naeem-ur-Rahman, who also addressed the presser, said that Aug 15 would be commemorated as a ‘black day’ in which rallies would be taken out from Muzaffarabad to Chakothi.
