Syed Salahuddin resents Sharif`s softness towards Modi
Islamabad: A Kashmiri Mujahideen leader has asked Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to avoid showing a "unilateral tilt" towards his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, media reported Monday.
"Nawaz Sharif should show consideration for the feelings and sacrifices of Kashmiris. His unilateral tilt towards Modi and exchange of letters and saris is hurting Kashmiris and impairing their cause," Syed Salahuddin, chairman of the United Jihad Council (UJC), said at a gathering Sunday.
The gathering in Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-ministered Kashmir, was held to commemorate the sacrifices of 21 Kashmiris who were gunned down by the despotic Dogra regime outside Srinagar`s Central Jail in 1931, Dawn Online reported.
The meeting was organised by the UJC, an alliance of over a dozen militant groups fighting Indian rule in the other half of Kashmir.
Salahuddin, who is also the supreme commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, asked Sharif not to take any decision that could neutralise the sacrifices of the Kashmiris.
He asserted that being a party to the dispute, Pakistan was legally bound to materially support the struggling Kashmiris.
"If Al Qaeda, Taliban or any other organisation or country extends a helping hand to the oppressed Kashmiris, we will welcome it," Salahuddin said.
He said that the Indian Army had let loose a reign of terror in Kashmir and 6,000 unmarked graves, daily killings, molestation of womenfolk and incidents of arson bore testimony to it.
The UJC chief said that Kashmir had no bondage with India, which was once again proved during Modi`s recent visit to the region under the protection of huge army contingents.
"Instead of raising assorted options and voices, the Hurriyat leadership should represent their oppressed nation with one voice," he said.
