United Jehad Council, (UJC) Monday appealed the people to follow the protest programmes of the Hurriyat leadership. The amalgam said that the programmes to mark the first anniversary of Hizb Commander Burhan Wani will be announced by Hurriyat leadership. Pertinently, UJC chief Syed Slahuddin had issued a week long programme to mark Burhan Wani’s first anniversary.
In an emailed statement to a local news gathering agency, a UJC spokesman said that “UJC has full confidence on the joint platform of Hurriyat leadership and respects their strategy and protest programmes. We had given a programme from July 8 to 13, which gave rise to misunderstandings. So, the protest programmes will be observed and restricted to the Base Camp only. And the programmes for ground (Kashmir) will be decided by the Hurriyat leadership,” UJC spokesman said.
“We support the programmes of the leadership and appeal people to support them too,” he said.
Meanwhile, UJC paid tributes to the militants and civilians killed in Dialgam and Bamnoo encounters. “We assure the nation that such sacrifices will not go in vain,” he said.
