Militants angry over Musharraf-speak on Kashmir
Srinagar, Mar 12 (UNI) The Muzaffarabad-based United Jehad Council (UJC), an umbrella organisation of several militant outfits, has expressed ''anger and anguish'' over Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's recent statements on Kashmir.
''We have written a letter to Gen Musharraf, asking him to make his policy on Kashmir amply clear. We have expressed objection over his changed policy on the issue,'' the UJC said in a statement to the local media here.
President Musharraf's statements help India's stand on Kashmir at the international level, UJC spokesman Kalimullah said.
The UJC leaders have decided to continue with protests in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), against Gen Musharraf's changed policy on Kashmir, he added.
''The Pakistani leadership should make its Kashmir policy clear otherwise the Jehadi forces will be forced to re-think on other lines. The UJC will not allow anybody to make sellout of sacrifices of thousands of people,'' the spokesman said.
He said eight UJC leaders, who protested against the Pakistan government's policies, were still in custody.
The UJC has appointed a three-member committee to run the affairs of the amalgam, the spokesman added.
He said the decision was taken at its important meeting chaired by UJC chairman and Hizbul Mujahideen supremo Syed Salah-ud-din.
