New Delhi: With an all-party delegation heading towards Kashmir for a peaceful resolution on the unrest after the encounter of Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani, most-wanted separatist and Hizbul chief Syed Salahuddin on Saturday said that he would turn the Valley “into a graveyard for Indian forces”.
The separatist leader exclaimed that he would make all effort to derail dialogue on peaceful resolution in Kashmir. The 69-year-old said that he would train more Kashmiri suicide bombers to take his struggles outside of Kashmir, hinting at spreading terror outside of the Valley.
“The Kashmiri leadership, people and mujahideen should know there is no formal, peaceful way,” said Salahuddin in an interview at his office in Baila Noor Shah Area of Muzaffarabad.
Salahuddin said that the death of Burhan Wani marked a critical phase for the movement in Kashmir. “If you do not accept it as an issue, then what is the need for dialogue,” he asked. “We will have to display our might,” Salahuddin threatened.
The separatist leader said that talks could not be held until and unless India recognises the fact that Kashmir is a dispute and not a land for India’s acceptance.
Kashmir is witnessing violent unrests after the death of Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani. Protests have lead to imposition of curfew in the Valley and more than 70 civilians have been killed in the chaos.
