The United Jihad Council (UJC), a conglomerate of over dozen militant outfits, Monday called for complete boycott of the upcoming bypoll in Anantnag constituency in south Kashmir.

As per  a statement, Syed Salahuddin, the UJC chief while addressing a high level meeting said the elections in Kashmir in presence of “10 lakh heavily armed Indian forces are just military exercise”.

“India uses it as an argument in the international forums to justify its forced occupation here and portrays it as referendum of the Kashmiri people in its favor. This election is just a joke which has no moral or constitutional status,” he said.

“Every household in Kashmir has faced the oppression while the people sacrificed their loved ones for sake of this freedom struggle. It is the time to show respect and protect these sacrifices and the few people who vote in these election dramas are not only committing an act of treason but their actions also lengthen our journey to freedom and acts as oxygen for the Indian forced occupation in Kashmir,” Salahuddin said.

He said the PDP-BJP coalition is trying to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir. “To eliminate Islamic identity and culture, this coalition is hell-bent to impose saffron culture in Valley. A resident of Islamabad can’t justify his participation in sham polling exercise,” he said. (CNS)
