Srinagar: Syed Sallah-u-Din, chairman united Jehad Council (UJC) and chief of Hizbul Mujhahideen (HM) has congratulated Mian Nawaz Sharief over his victory in Pakistan elections. In a statement to various news agencies, Sallah-u-Din hoped that Sharief besides pulling out Pakistan from the current gloomy era, would also show his keenness to address the long pending issue of Kashmir. UJC chairman lamented that Kashmir was not made core issue during elections that raised many eyebrows. “We hope now that Nawaz Sharief will take all possible measures to address Kashmir issue. It is in the interest of Pakistan to help solution of Kashmir issue as per the aspirations of people of Kashmir,” UJC chairman said. “Pakistan is basic party to the dispute and hence duty bound, morally, legally and constitutionally, to extend concrete support to the Kashmiris. By ignoring this important issue since last so many years, freedom struggle in Kashmir received a setback. Time has come that Pakistan give prime importance to Kashmir issue and do not put it in cold storage” Sallah-u-Din said. He urged Nawaz Sharief to highlight Kashmir issue as an issue of national importance and pay keen attention towards this issue. “This will send a good message to the Kashmiri people that Pakistan stands by them in their just struggle,” Hizb supreme said. He reiterated that unless India gives up its obduracy and agrees to resolve Kashmir issue in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiris, the trade with this country is useless. UJC chairman stated that it is the moral responsibility of Pakistan to highlight the wrongdoings of India in Kashmir on international level. “All but one million Indian Army personnel are stationed in Kashmir to suppress the sentiments of Kashmiri people. Our mothers and sisters are not safe and Pakistan must act to relieve people of Kashmir from all miseries,” he said.
