Lahore: A week after Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani's killing, Jamaat-ud-Dawaah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has warned of more bloodshed in Kashmir in the days to come.
Saeed, the alleged mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, has threatened to intensify the Kashmir movement, saying that the sacrifice of his Kashmiri brothers will not go in vain.
The JuD chief has made these remarks in an interview to leading international news channel on Wednesday.
Saeed also reportedly said that he will lead nationwide demonstrations in Pakistan to force its government to sever ties with the US if it cannot convince Washington to intervene in the decades old "Kashmir dispute".
Saeed was referring to the ongoing unrest and violence in Kashmir since security forces killed terrorist Burhan Wani there last week.
"America is supporting this oppression by India by saying it is an internal matter," Saeed said in the interview, which took place at his home in the eastern city of Lahore.
"This has given India encouragement and because of this the killings and violence will continue."
Saeed had on Tuesday conducted a prayer meet in the memory of Hizbul militant Burhan Wani in Lahore.
"This time the people in Kashmir are on streets. This protest has become a mass movement. All groups in Kashmir have united. All the wings of the Hurriyat have become one. The Muttahida Jihad Council and all other groups have come on to the same platform. Those who have died in Kashmir, their deaths will not be in vain," Saeed had said during the prayer meet.
Saeed asserted that the people in Pakistan should support Kashmiris.
"We Pakistani should support our Kashmiri brothers. Their sweat and blood is our sweat and blood. Their way of thinking is also our way of thinking," he added.
"We in Pakistan will intensify the movement which is taking place in Kashmir. When Pakistan join hands in this movement with Kashmir then Kashmir will become part of Pakistan," he added.
The US has designated Saeed a terrorist, and declared a bounty of USD 10 million on his head.
