SRINAGAR: United Jehad Council leaders on Wednesday accused India of being inimical to talks and peace, and said that New Delhi was compelling Kashmiris to continue their armed struggle.
The UJC chairman, Syed Salahuddin, and general secretary, Shiekh Jameel-ur-Rahman, who is also the chief of the Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen, were speaking as chief guests at a school function at a migrant camp in Muzaffarabad.
Salahuddin said that India had failed to crush the freedom struggle in Kashmir with its lowly and misleading tactics, and had once again begun to hatch conspiracies to project the movement as terrorism.
The new generation is our future, but the dream of a bright future cannot be realized without education, Salahuddin said.
Lives lead in exile and migration are full of trials and tribulations, and one must display fortitude in the face of the testing circumstances, he said. We must try to fulfil the objectives of our migration.
Those who are returning (to the Kashmir Valley) are being put to new suffering and harassment by the Indian forces, he said, asking the PaK government to undertake special and urgent measures to address issues facing migrants.
