Srinagar: The United Jihad Council (UJC) chief Syed Salahuddin and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah Tuesday thanked Pakistan for wholeheartedly celebrating the “Kashmir Solidarity Day”.
According to a statement issued, Syed Salahuddin while addressing a high-level meeting of UJC said the time has come for the government of Pakistan to intensify its diplomatic, moral and media campaign to highlight the Kashmir cause.
“The passion with which the government of Pakistan and its people are expressing solidarity with the people of Kashmir is exemplary and encouraging for Kashmiris,” UJC chief said.
“The people of Kashmir and its leadership express gratitude to the people of Pakistan and its government for such solidarity,” he further said.
Syed Salahuddin, who is also the chairman of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, however added: “This needs to be realised that the way India blatantly violates the international laws and commits ethnic cleansing of Kashmiris, snatching the eyesight of people including the children and women, the government of Pakistan needs to do more to highlight the cause of Kashmiris by adopting a result-oriented policy.”
Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah in a statement said: “The Pakistani nation always stood with Kashmiris and raised the voices of oppressed on every forum. The relation which binds the two nations is the Kalima Tayyabah which Kashmiris immensely observe by burying martyrs in shrouds of Pakistani flags.”
“The nights of darkness are soon to fade away. India has been trying to sustain its illegal occupation for more than 7 decades but it has always come across defeat. India can never suppress the legitimate freedom struggle by inflicting atrocities upon innocent Kashmiris,” he stated.
The LeT chief said that the United Nations “played” with the emotions and wishes of Kashmiris.
“Despite having UN resolutions on Kashmir for more than 7 decades, the U-turn is highly condemnable. The Pakistani government must proactively raise the Kashmir issue on international forums,” Shah said.
He appealed the government of Pakistan to take measures on international forums by establishing “Kashmir Desks” in all consulates across the world “to expose the vicious face of India”.
Mehmood Shah also urged the Pakistani media to highlight Kashmir issue vigorously.
