Militant groups accuse Musharraf of sell-off

Mukhtar Ahmad In Srinagar | April 19, 2005 02:09 IST

Four militant groups -- Save Kashmir Movement, Al-Nasreen, Al-Arifeen and Farzandan-e-Milat -- have accused Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf of 'selling Kashmir in exchange for trade and tourism to India'.

In a statement faxed to the media in Jammu and Kashmir, the groups blamed Musharraf for what they alleged was 'a hands-down surrender before India, which was unprecedented in the history of Pakistan'.

The groups surfaced early this month when they claimed they were in possession of the list of names of the passengers of the first bus between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad. The groups also claimed responsibility for the attack on the Tourist Reception Centre in Srinagar, where the passengers were housed.

"We will continue our Jehad and will never deviate from it. We will take the ongoing struggle to its logical conclusion," the statement in Urdu read.

The group criticised Syed Salah-ud-Din, supreme commander of frontline Hizbul Mujaheedin and chief of Mutihida Jihad Council, who had said on Sunday he was not opposed to the bus service.

The militant groups also warned the people not to undertake the journey in the second bus. It would 'endanger the lives of both the travellers and their families', the statement said.
