Srinagar: Hizb-ul-Mujahideen’s Supreme Commander and United Jehad Council (UJC) chief Syed Salahudin on Monday asked pro-India politicians to resign and join pro-freedom ranks, else the “nation won’t spare them later”.
“There is still time for the pro-India politicians to give up pro-India politics and join pro-freedom ranks, otherwise nation won’t spare them later,” Salahudin said in a statement issued to news agency KNS.
Salahudin addressed a meeting of the UJC in which he said, “India is trying to curb the freedom sentiment in Kashmir by using disproportionate pellets, bullets, teargas and other such weaponry only to break the will of the people by subjecting them to economic starvation and non-availability of basic amenities of life”.
“Let Pakistan try to attract world attention through diplomatic exercises and extend concrete help to Kashmir fully,” he said.
Salahudin asked all the member states of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to sever their diplomatic and economic ties with the Indian government.
“India is constructing concrete walls and tunnels on the line of control (LoC) to strengthen its occupation in Jammu & Kashmir state,” Salahudin said in his statement.
He said the “martyrdom” of Burhan Muzaffar Wani had united the Kashmiri nation with the pro-freedom leadership and “we are needlessly pining our hopes on meaningless dialogue.”
Expressing satisfaction over the pro-freedom leadership’s strategy, the Hizb commander said, “There is a need to thwart the divisive attempts of the agencies and agents of the occupational authorities.”
