Pakistan’s nefarious tactics to compromise and destroy peace in Jammu and Kashmir continues to emerge in the form of their proxies, with Hizbul Mujahideen terror chief Syed Salahuddin releasing a video in which he has asked the Pakistani government to provide weapons to Kashmiris to fight Indian security forces.
“Our war against India continues. It is the duty of Pakistan to arm Kashmiris to fight Indian forces. Pakistan must help Kashmiris to wage terror in the name of Allah,” Salahuddin can be heard saying in the video.
The terrorist asked Pakistan to extend armed support to Kashmiris so that they can fight the “Indian oppression in Kashmir” and “get rid of the 72-year long Indian occupation of “our homeland”.
“He says all that to seek attention. If he has any guts, let him stand at Lal Chowk in Srinagar and see what happens to him. These terrorists just talk in this language. I don’t think we need to take him seriously,” Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy said in response to Salahuddin’s provocative words.
Pakistan’s terror proxies have continued to destabilise peace in Jammu and Kashmir, especially since the abrogation of Article 370, which stripped the state of its special status. Heavy deployment of security forces and stringent measures by the Union Home Ministry, under Amit Shah, has ensured no security breach in the Valley.
“There is a need for strong action in Kashmir to end India’s control over the region, so that Kashmiris can alleviate themselves of slavery. If there’s any difficulty in carrying this out, then lakhs of Kashmiris, from 8-year-olds to 80-year-olds, should be prepared to take weapons in their hands. We will not at any point, even after decades of atrocities by India, succumb to their demands and pressure, or accept defeat. As long as even one Kashmiri is alive, our fight will continue. It is the responsibility and obligation of the Pakistani government to provide weapons to Kashmiris to fight and flush out Indian security forces from Kashmir,” Salahuddin said in the video messa.
