Musharraf backstabbed Kashmiri militants: Salahuddin

‘Inconsistent Pak Policy Responsible For Friction Among Hurriyat’

TARIQ NAQASH

Muzaffarabad, Jan 5: Chairman of United Jihad Council (UJC) and Supreme commander of Hizbul Mujahideen Syed Salahuddin on Saturday said that former President of Pakistan Parvez Musharraf “backstabbed” Kashmiri militants when India was about to quit Kashmir.
 Addressing a news conference here at the press club, after conclusion of a rally taken out to mark ‘Right to Self Determination Day, Salahuddin said, “Musharraf retreated on Kashmir under international pressure by presenting 4-point formula without any guarantee from anywhere and in fact he created confusion in Kashmir as well as discord among the Kashmiri leadership, triggering roadmaps from every other leader.”
 “We have suffered at the hands of our own people,” he said of Musharraf.
 He also endorsed, though obliquely, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq reported statement regarding Taliban’s spill over in Kashmir.  “Mirwaiz sahib may have some information in this regard as he has visited here lately. For obvious reasons, there are chances of it and Jihadi movement will pick up exceptional momentum,” he added.
 Salahuddin stated that he was not averse to political movement but could not approve of ‘fragmented and fractured” political struggle.
 “None can deny the importance and usefulness of a state wide political movement under the patronage of a united and recognized leadership but the real decisive power lies in the armed struggle,” he declared.
 Asked about the potential of militants to launch state wide military struggle, he said if India did not feel threatened, it would have reduced the number of its troops. However, he said he could not disclose his strategy in this regard.
 Salahuddin appealed the pro-freedom leadership to forge complete unity in their ranks for the sake of their oppressed people. “All of them call for right to self determination and withdrawal of forces… Then where is the difference?”
 Asked who was responsible for friction in the ranks of Hurriyat leaders, he laid the blame on “fluctuating and inconsistent policies” in Pakistan.
 “There have been differences in approach of pro-freedom leaders on some issues and a consistent policy from here can end them,” he added.
 Salahuddin made it clear that the trans-Kashmir travel or trade of “potatoes and onion,” internal autonomy or division of Kashmir could not be the substitute for freedom.
 “We are not antipathetic to intra-Kashmir trade or travel but attaching as much importance to it as can put the  basic issue on the backburner. It is a naked betrayal with the unprecedented sacrifices offered by the Kashmiris,” he added.
 According to him, the ongoing India-Pakistan talks and Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) on trade and travel were a bane for the Kashmiris because they were virtually sidelining the core issue.
 “This goes exactly in line with India’s strategy and can affect the affiliation of Kashmiris towards Pakistan,” he warned.
 Recalling that around 150 rounds of talks between India and Pakistan on Kashmir had failed to yield anything, Salahuddin emphasized that the Kashmiris should not be kept in dark through hollow claims.
 He said if the advocate of Kashmiris (Pakistan) was bent upon befriending their persecutor (India), they could think of some other means to advance their cause.
 Salahuddin also criticized those terming the UN resolutions on Kashmir as obsolete. They were speaking India’s language, he said.
