11 November 2000
KARACHI: Patron-in-Chief of Harkatul Mujahideen, Maulana Fazalur Rehman Khalil has said that Kashmiri Mujahideen have all along suffered harm from the erstwhile rulers instead of the Indian troops. Mujahideen were stabbed of and on at a time of their significant successes. Khalil told NNI, Maulana said that the Indian Army Chief had frankly admitted that Indian troops consider themselves insecure even in their garrison. He claimed that Mujahideen are damaging due to aerial attacks of the enemy forces. He demanded for the provision of such weapons enabling them to counter these attacks. He went on to say that it was the struggle of the Mujahideen which bore fruit that Vajpayee who used to claim that Kashmir was inseparable part of India had himself contradicted his earlier stand when he talked about granting internal autonomy of Kashmiris in the Lok Sabha. The Harkat leader said that if we kept on pressurising India successfully and if no new ‘Nawaz Sharif’ comes in the way, we should soon compel India to announce complete liberation of Kashmir. He said Kashmiris are waging Jehad in Kashmir for the liberation of their motherland from Indian occupation. He maintained that it was not the right step to announce unilateral cease-fire at a time when Mujahideen were embracing martyrdom during their heroic struggle against 8 lakh Indian occupation troops. He said that stand of the incumbent government towards freedom struggle in Kashmir is far better than the stand took by Mian Nawaz Sharif and owing to this reason some improvement has been felt in Pakistan’s policy on Kashmir. He said that the people of Indian held Kashmir have good thinking about the present Pakistani government.
