United Jihad Council (UJC) chairman Syed Salahuddin on Tuesday condemned the killing of Hurriyat leader Hafizullah and said that it was ‘the handiwork of Indian agencies’.
Salahuddin expressed sadness over Hafizullah’s killing and said the “machinations of Indian agencies and their supporters in Kashmir have been exposed with this killing.”
“The Indian agencies have started target killings of pro-freedom leadership, which in itself is the acceptance of India’s failure in Kashmir.” He added.
Hafizullah was killed by unknown gunmen at his home at Budhra area of Achabal of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district Tuesday morning. His wife was also injured in the attack.
Hizb chief, in a statement, has also appealed to the world human rights bodies’ to check the actions of “Indian’s policy of oppression” in Kashmir.
He further paid tributes to the four Hizb militants killed in Shopian gunfight earlier today, saying “the blood of martyrs will not go in vain.”
