“India sells participation of Kashmiris in elections”: UJC Chief

No poll boycott campaign means betrayal with freedom movement

Srinagar: While appreciating the separatists who are busy with the election boycott rallies in Kashmir, United Jihad Council (UJC) chief Syed Sallahudin has asked the pro freedom leadership who are yet to start their poll boycott campaign that their inaction will tantamount to pro-India stance and betrayal with Kashmir’s freedom movement.

Quoting UJC chief, Syed Sadaqat Hussain spokesman of the UJC has said in a statement issued to KNS that the pro freedom leadership who are yet to start poll boycott movement should launch a massive anti-election campaign otherwise their tag of treachery will not fade till the Day of Judgment.

Sallahuddin has said that besides safeguarding their own individual and family interests, the mainstream parties are in one voice ‘fulfilling the Indian agenda in Kashmir’.   The UJC chief has said that no one will be allowed to betray the sacrifices offered by Kashmiri martyrs.

The UJC spokesman has said that under military massive occupation elections have no relevance and importance in Kashmir. “Through these elections India is trying to further strengthen and legitimize its occupation in Jammu and Kashmir,” said Sallahudin while addressing a high level meeting.

The UJC chief has observed that the Indian leadership is selling elections held in Kashmir as an endorsement of Kashmiri people to the so called accession with its dominion. “This negative propaganda can be countered only through a complete poll boycott    in Jammu and Kashmir. Despite understanding this reality, those who will participate in these elections will be betraying lakhs of martyrs who have given their precious lives and those innumerable women whose chastity and modesty was compromised by the occupying forces,” Sallahudin has said. (KNS)
