The United Jihad Council on Tuesday appealed to people to follow protest programmes announced by the Hurriyat leadership in Kashmir.
In an e-mailed statement to local news agency KNS, a UJC spokesman said: "The UJC has full confidence on the joint platform of Hurriyat leadership and respects their strategy and protest programmes. We had given a programme from July 8 to 13 which gave rise to misunderstandings. So, the protest programmes will be observed and restricted to the Base Camp only. And the programmes for ground (Kashmir) will be decided by the Hurriyat leadership."
"We support the programmes of the leadership and appeal to people to support them too," he said.
Meanwhile, UJC paid tributes to militants and civilians killed in Dialgam and Bamnoo encounters in south Kashmir. "We assure the nation that such sacrifices will not go in vain," the spokesman said. KNS
