Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin asked Pakistan to snap diplomatic ties with India if a “peaceful solution” to the ongoing violence in Kashmir is not reached. At a press conference in Karachi on Sunday Salahuddin said Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani’s killing gave a “new meaning to the struggle” for Kashmir.

He asked Pakistan to “find a peaceful solution to the ongoing violence”, Dawn newspaper reported.”If a peaceful solution is not reached then Pakistan should consider cutting off diplomatic ties with India over the killing of Wani,” the Hizbul Mujahideen supreme militant commander said.

Salahuddin said Pakistan was “morally bound” to help the Kashmiris. Pointing out the United Nations Security Council resolution on Kashmir, he said there were so far “18 such resolutions tabled by the UN on Kashmir which have been ignored by the international community”.

Salahuddin asked the international community to call back their ambassadors from India which he said is the “best solution at the moment”. He said Pakistan’s policy towards Kashmir “remains inconsistent” which gave “strength” to the Indian troops in the Valley.

“Despite the indecisiveness on Pakistan’s part, the Kashmiris were getting ready for a decisive moment to take matters in their own hands. With the increasing violence, many Kashmiris believe that armed resistance is the only way to move through the chaos,” he said.
