Srinagar: United Jehad Council (UJC), an alliance of militant outfits operating in the Valley, Tuesday condemned the attack on Hindu pilgrims in Anantnag and pointed fingers at Indian agencies for plotting the attack.
In a statement, the UJC said they were not expecting India to “stoop so low” and “target its own people for its vested benefits”.
“The attack on Amarnath pilgrims is barbaric and highly condemnable. India fanatic elements want to target many by a single shot. The attack was not only aimed at to malign the Kashmir Freedom Struggle across globe but also to target insecure Kashmiri students and traders present in different parts of India,” UJC chief Syed Salahuddin said.
He said the Indian security agencies and its aides “will get nothing out of this” as the whole world knows that “militants and freedom loving people of Kashmir” take it as their responsibility to protect the Hindu pilgrims. “Kashmiris are known for hospitality who never discriminate on the lines of colour, religion, sex, creed and caste,” he said.
He added that the assailants will get exposed “in the same way as they had got exposed in Pandit massacre in Wandhama, Sikh massacre in Chattisingpora and Machhil fake encounter.”
The UJC appealed to global human rights organization to constitute an investigating team and probe the incident thoroughly and fairly. Salahuddin also expressed sympathies with the bereaved families.
