UJC announces 'bravery award' for slain gunmen

A spokesperson of UJC Syed Sadaqat Hussain told CNS over phone from Muzafarabad that the organization’s Chief Syed Salahuddin convened a special meeting to offer glorious tribute to the three slain militants.

The United Jihad Council on Monday declared that it will confer bravery award titled ‘Hilal-e-Shujhat’ to three militants who were killed after a 48-hour gun-battle with Indian forces in South Kashmir’s Pampore area.

A spokesperson of UJC Syed Sadaqat Hussain told CNS over phone from Muzafarabad that the organization’s Chief Syed Salahuddin convened a special meeting to offer glorious tribute to the three slain militants.

He said Salahuddin, while lauding the role and boldness of these militants, said “India should read the writing on the wall.”

“All the three militants fought valiantly. The attacks on Indian forces will be intensified and our militants will continue to target the Indian establishments,” he said.

 “We thank people of Jammu and Kashmir especially the people of Pampore for expressing solidarity and standing by them (militants) during the gun fight with Indian troopers,” he said. CNS
