Srinagar: Appreciating the separatists for election boycott rallies in Kashmir, United Jihad Council (UJC) chief Syed Sallahuddin Friday asked the leadership who are yet to start 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 said in a statement issued here that the separatist 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 said 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 elections under military have no relevance and importance in Kashmir. 'Through these elections India is trying to further strengthen and legitimize its control in Jammu and Kashmir,' said Sallahuddin 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 martyrs who have given their precious lives and those innumerable women whose chastity and modesty was compromised,' he further said.
