Syed Salahuddin is here playing the role that Hamas has up to now been playing in Israel: both have been acting as hardline jihadists who will accept no negotiation. But if it looks as if India will start to give in to the jihadist demands at the negotiating table, as the EU is now cozying up to Hamas, then expect Salahuddin to change his tune.
“Kashmir Hurriyat leaders ask Pakistan’s Muttahida Jihad Council to soften stand,” from Pakistan’s Jang via M & C News, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
Lahore: It has been learnt that the visiting delegation of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference [APHC] held a meeting with Muttahida Jihad Council chief Salahuddin during which they asked him to soften his stand on the Kashmir issue.
According to sources, the APHC leaders conveyed a message of the government to Salahuddin to soften his stand on the Kashmir issue so that a solution to the conflict could be found. In response, Salahuddin said that the council would not soften its stand on the Kashmir issue nor would it become part of any conspiracy. It would continue jihad and ask the APHC leaders not to become part of any conspiracy to divide Kashmir. In the past, India has proved that it wants to complicate the problem and it has not yet shown any flexibility in its position.
