Srinagar: Conglomerate of Kashmir militant outfits, the United Jehad Council (UJC), came up on Thursday with three conditions for a viable solution to the Kashmir issue.
The UJC chief, Syed Salahuddin, while addressing a press conference said that India should admit that Jammu and Kashmir is a dispute that can be resolved in the light of UN resolutions through tripartite talks.
He said from the past seven decades, India has been illegally ruling Kashmir and in the name of dialogue, it has always committed fraud. “When there remained no option, youth of Kashmir took to arms. Under present circumstances, armed struggle remains the only way out,” he said and added that India is eager to change the Muslim demography of Jammu and Kashmir.
“India is playing with the honour and dignity of Kashmiri women by chopping off their braids. The irony is that world community is silent while Pakistan needs to play proactive role on diplomatic and political front,” he said.
Syed Salahuddin said that the UJC is with the Kashmir leadership in case they start a dialogue process. “Since India is not sincere, we have laid down our three conditions. Let India declare Jammu and Kashmir as a disputed territory and accept there are three parties. Let India accept Kashmir issue will be resolved in the light of UN resolutions as per the aspirations of people of Kashmir, we will fully support the Hurriyat leadership,” he said and added that the dialogue process should be meaningful.
Throwing light on history, Salahuddin said that India used dilly-dallying tactics to avoid the implementation of UN resolutions in Kashmir. He said that India used ways and means to snatch the rights of the people and adopted different tactics to cheat the world community.
