Kashmir’s most-wanted terrorist, Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, has warned of turning the Kashmir Valley into “a graveyard for Indian forces” by sending Kashmiri suicide bombers.
Salahuddin, 69, insisted that there was no solution to Kashmir except militancy.
“The Kashmiri leadership, people and mujahideen should know there is no formal, peaceful way,” he said. He also asked Pakistan to snap diplomatic ties with India if a “peaceful solution” to the ongoing violence in Kashmir is not reached. He had earlier said that Pakistan is duty bound, morally bound, politically bound and constitutionally bound to provide concrete, substantial support to the ongoing freedom struggle on the territory of Kashmir.
Salahuddin, who heads the United Jihad Council, a Pakistan-backed alliance of anti-Indian Kashmiri militant groups, said Burhan Wani’s killing has given a “new meaning to the struggle” for Kashmir.
He said the entire Valley has turned into a concentration camp and these sacrifices will not go in vain.
Salahuddin called for India to recognise Kashmir as a disputed area, without which talks could not be held.
He has also threatened to show his ‘might’ and said Hizbul Mujahideen would take the struggle outside Kashmir, to other parts of the region and the globe.
He has also justified sending suicide bombers, as he said soldiers from various parts of India are violating the sanctity of our houses.
He had earlier threatened nuclear war against India over the Kashmir issue.
